Hi, I have an idea for a campaign, I decided to call it a "Civilian on duty."
We would build civilian vehicles that have been or are being used by the military. It will not be vehicles built specifically for the military but for eg. such have been requisitioned by the army. A good example might be:
Tamiya - Citroen 11CV, Toyota Model AB Simca 5 etc.
Allowed any scale and any era. From Taxi de la Marne to Toyota in the Middle East.
Please write what you think.

Of course,;-) that's what I meant, they can also be vehicles painted in camouflage.

I don't have anything in the stash at the moment, but Pawel has always been a staunch supporter of my campaign proposals so I'm in!

Meng Velociraptor series is compatible with the objectives of the campaign, of course, apart from Tiger.

I'm in. I'll have to acquire something. I'm thinking GAZ-AAA or one of the BZ refuelers if these are allowed. I'll look into it.

Pretty much all of the Dozer/Tractor kits released recently would qualify as well. Including the Meng D9 and the Tamiya Komatsu G40

I'm interested

Hi,
Andrew and KoSprueOne models that propose to fit the assumptions of my campaign. We need two more people, and we can approve the campaign.
