I would be in. I'm not sure what I'd do yet.

What about what-ifs...like a turretless T34 mounting a AT3 Sagger for example?

Or maybe a more conventional infantry tank killer team, of some sort, moving in on a target. I think I have a TOW launcher from an old MUTT kit. I'll figure something out.

Sounds like an interesting campaign. I might sign up. If so I have this kit in my stash I might try to do something with. I just don't like the thought of dogs being used that way but that is a part of history.



I just don't know what my schedule and health will allow in regards to taking part. That will all depend on a few things I guess.

Thanks,
Randy


And just for some fun.

Alex,
Sounds interesting. Recently I was watching special about the Yom Kippur war and in the footage (though not at the same time) there were T-34/85s and Saggers being used.

Randy,
Though nobody likes to see dogs used that way, it could be interesting. Hope you can join us.

I'm in. I have no idea as yet what I'm going to build but I've recently picked up the old Airfix 17lber. Would that be okay with it being an anti-tank gun?

Karl,
Yes, your 17lb AT gun fits the campaign perfectly. Glad to have you with us!

Raj,
Your Ferdinand is very welcome! No tank hunters campaign would be complete without it.

Peter,
TBH I hadn't even thought of sci-fi possibilities. So, why not. Welcome aboard. It'll be interesting to see what sci-fi has to offer to the world of tank hunting.

Cheers,


Gaz

Had planned to do my Achilles, but a few current campaigns have lined up with a personal model theme I had in the works, so instead I will be going with my Bronco QF 17pdr AT gun.

I was gonna go with a Jagdpanther but then I found these guys and all the talk about animals so I figured this might be a better way to go plus i need to work on my figures

Sal,
Interesting choice! This is another kit I've never known of. I think I'm going to get a lot of education on this campaign.

Cheers,

I have two DML Panzerjaeger Is in the stash. I'm thinking France 1940.

I had a bit of a mental hiccup on the T34 idea so that one is off the table.

I've got a Trumpy T55 kit gathering dust so it could be a fun way to abuse it. Maybe up its armor and stuff. I think I might do a what-ifish T55 Tank Destroyer armed with a 122mm gun and possibly equipped with a plow. I'm not sure if it'll have a fixed casemate like a SU-122-54 or the fighting compartment will be moved to the rear and the engine moved forward.

I'm shooting for something more along the lines of a Su-122-54.

Hello everyone,
I'm glad to find this campaign as I needed some motivation to be more focused on modelling. I have Dragon's Panzerjäger I Ausf.B. and two Marder IIIs (M and H) but has not decided which will be my participant - it can happen that I buy Tamiya's Jagdpanzer IV L/70 'till September
cheers,
Zsolt

Glad to hear from you! I will be doing a Marder III, for certain. Look forward to seeing your build!
