This one is also being proposed in AeroScale.

June 2017 is the 50th anniversary of the Six Day War which I think certainly calls for a campaign. But it brings up a small issue I've been thinking about and I thought I'd ask you all what you think. Should an anniversary campaign such as this start at such a time that the end of the campaign corresponds to the actual anniversary date (in which case it should start around January 1st, assuming the normal six month time frame) or should the campaign start at the time of the anniversary (June 1, 2017)? Or yet again should the anniversary be in the middle of the campaign?

Anyway, I certainly would like to see a joint AeroScale - Armorama Six Day War 50th Anniversary campaign. And, of course, anyone else who wants to do figures, ships, etc. as well. Anyone out there agree? And when do you think it should start?

I'll be in on this, seems it would probably be a late winter start, just when a slew of other campaigns will be close to wrapping up!I'm OK with a later start too...

Hey Guys,

I would really like to join this one, running this one in the middle would be my choice. I have a French jet for the air and British tank for the ground a perfect fit for the Six Day War...Yeah...

Thanks Clayton and Ken!

Kind of surprised this one hasn't gotten more traction (so to speak). Anyone else interested?

Well, that's better!

We seem to have seven between the two sites so far and the general consensus seems to be a later rather than an earlier start. I figure a March kick-off date would put the actual anniversary in the middle of the campaign. How does that sound to everyone?

I'd be up for this campaign. I fancy building a Syrian T34 85 on the Golan heights. March is good for me.
Cheers

March is fine to me, not late enough where I'd forget and build my intended entry, and late enough to get everything im working on finished.

Well, that was fast.

This campaign is APPROVED.

It will run from 1 March - 1 September, 2017. If you want to see the rules and sign up, go here. I will be running the campaign out of AeroScale simply because I have a little more pull with the admin ( ) but is open to anyone who wants to enter from any KitMaker site.

I'm looking forward to this one! Now, what to build...

Just to keep the discussion going, and apropos of my previous post, here are my options for the campaign (as of now):

I'm kind of leaning towards the Magach but just about all of them are on the table (probably not the Vautour 'cause, damn.)

We'll see...

Yep, I just got my FineScale Modeler magazine in the mail, and Dragon has some offerings specifically tailored to this campaign! Decisions, decisions!

Nice Clayton! Which kit? BTW, I don't think the Israelis ever called it an Isherman, that got made up by someone else along the way and is still used occasionally by model companies.

I think you're mixing it up with the 1956 Suez crisis.

Well, Israel used French jets and British tanks in '67. Is that what you meant Ken?

It's the newer Tamiya M51. It was the price that sealed the deal, $30 + Free shipping, lol...

Nice! That's a great kit, and the right configuration for '67 too!
