If it will help, I think I have some World War I figures I've been meaning to get into, so count me in as well.

I probably will be in.

I did a trench scene for the last WW1 campaign. And I have built Takom's Whippet.

What about aircraft? I have a couple of Eduard biplanes I could pick from. If not, no big deal...I might pick up a Meng FT-17.



I have built the Meng FT-17 converted to a M1917. Fantastic model and some great camo opportunities.



I used the venerable RPM FT-17 for my trench dio. For that purpose, it was okay. I plan on retiring that one soon and replacing it with a Meng version.

Anyway, I see that aircraft are allowed in the original post so I'll probably go with either a Bristol F.2 or an Albatross DIII....maybe both if I have time.

Any start date settled on?

Count me in as well.

Since I'm usually lurking around here anyways, might as well jump in on the final Great War Campaign.

Most likely a trench dio, but I know the stash won't let me down on anything relating to "Goodbye To All That".

Thanks for this Campaign idea,
Cheers
Dave

I'm in; I plan on starting a 1/16th FT-17 in the next week or two with the goal for it to be done by 11/11.

In case it interests someone, I just built up the 1:72 Flyhawk FT-17 (you get two! in the box, and I have made one). Haven't painted it yet. I have to say it is pretty damned incredible for 1:72, great engineer.

Just a neat option for anyone with limited build time who still wants in!

I'd sign up for this with the Meng Whippet. I need to build something that is not panzer grey
Cheers

No good at art as it were, but maybe something that incorporates this:

That's 8 of us so far, if we can get a couple of other folks interested we can apply to become a campaign.

An thoughts on a snappy ribbon, one you would be proud to earn?

Tanks & figures all welcomed here. It will be a good opportunity to try using mud of various types . . .

Picked up a couple of tanks and some of ICM's fantastic figures.
About time I did something with them.
Count me in!

Howdy Y'all
If figures are going to be allowed then I'm in. I would like to build one of the 1/35 Tamiya British figures.
Looking forward to this one.
Thank you,
Don "Lakota"

Yes, no hurry about it. We could always get a start and let the campaign catch up to us if needed. As it is, I have four kits in process right now so there is plenty to work on.

Give it some time, it is still summer/holiday season ...
Maybe we should add the word 'Proposal' to the topic title
to get some more attention?

So far only 5 of us have expressed an interest in this late memorial to WW1. We need 10 to make it a go.

I have eyed that kit myself and would be very curious how it builds up. I have a real Model T, a 1923 Runabout, so different from modern cars.

Paul,

Thanks for the warm welcome. Been a long time reader (a.k.a lurker) and excited to make the leap as it were.

I am going to do the ICM Model T 1917 Ambulance.

What about a double deal?
A started kit is allowed as long the participant also enters a new kit?
Makes it more challenging

Glenn - I just noticed, this is your first post as well as your first campaign. Welcome, you will find lots of friendly encouragement here.

I feel that partial builds would be good for this one seeing we are so close to the 11/11 date. The campaign would go on longer for those of us who are building something new. So bring on your dry-docked ship & armored car.

An ambulance would be great. As horrible as the death toll was, those wounded were even more numerous. Is it a Ford?

I could be up for this, as my first campaign. Would WWI ambulance qualify?

I have a 90% finished (paintjob still to be done) Lanchester armoured car and maybe a fresh kit as well.
There was a campaign for WW I armour that finished in June, which I failed due to over-optimistic planning and a rusted through air tank for my compressor ....

If partial builds are in, then I have a ship lying in dry-dock needing finishing
