Anyone consider doing a campaign where the subject was purchased for $25 (US or equivalent) or under?

Basic rules:
Any subject or scale
After market parts allowed as long as it doesn't go over the 25 total.
Scratch building quite allowed.

Not idea on a start date.

"$20 buck for the Win" for not allowing 1/72 scale kits so if this would be allowed here, I'd be in.

It would be open to all kits and scales as long as it's under $25. Excluding shipping cost and the like. That'll bring up some good ebay deals.

Am I right to assume it would include the cost of any AM items such as tracks, etc.?

For fear of domestic reprisals I don't keep receipts of kits bought. How does one prove it is indeed within the cap? Also, there may be those kits, now old or OOP bought cheaply at the time, but today command higher prices off the likes of eBay -- how would these be treated?

Tracks and AM parts count against the 25 limit. I'd use the honor system for pricing. Though I may ask if you get a 1/16 Tiger for $25.

Since a lot of campaigns are starting in Jan/Feb I'd go for March to September

Perhaps it would be better handled if the $25 referred to list price on major selling sites.
