Of Wheels and Tracks Award

Operational Overview
A half-track is a civilian or military vehicle with regular wheels on the front for steering, and caterpillar tracks on the back to propel the vehicle and carry most of the load. The purpose of this combination is to produce a vehicle with the cross-country capabilities of a tank and the handling of a wheeled vehicle.

Half-tracks were used extensively in World War II by all sides, especially the Germans and Americans, but fell out of favor soon after, replaced with fully-tracked or fully-wheeled vehicles. Half-tracks were used primarily as armored personnel carriers, but also saw duty as mortar carriers, self-propelled anti-aircraft guns, self-propelled anti-tank guns, artillery haulers, armored fighting vehicles and many other tasks.

Thus, this campaign is an opportunity for modellers to build halftracks and have fun altogether.

The Rules and Regs
The whole idea for this campaign is to have fun and share with other modellers.
Your halftrack can range from mortar carriers, self-propelled anti-aircraft guns, self-propelled anti-tank guns, artillery haulers, armored fighting vehicles and the mainly used, armored personnel carriers.

The rules are simple
- cannot start kit prior to start date
- the vehicle must be half wheel and half track
- dioramas are also welcome
- can be of any nation as long it's a halftrack

Contest Element
You can enter as many halftracks but will only be awarded for one.
