Hello everyone,
just a quick qustion.
Who thinks we could do with a T54 T55 T62 campaign?
These machines have been roaming the planet since 1946/7,
and if we count the T44 then since 1945. This campaign can
carry everything from the Trumpeter kits built out of the box to Tamiya with everything from the aftermarket. In other
words from the novice to the rivet counter.
I know we have the "Cold war / Proxy war" campaigns running,
but this one is to show just these vehicles and their variants.
Start date December 2013?

It's a ways off but I would be interested. I've been wanting to replace my ancient Egyptian T-55 with a newer base kit. So it would be mostly OOB but with an added western 105mm gun with US style smoke grenade launchers.

In other words Brit.

You can defiantly count me in. I have plenty T-62’s and even a T-54 mod 49 that still needs to get built. Time table is just fine, plenty of time to finish up other projects.

It could be. The ones I referenced look just like the armored launchers found on the Abrams and late Pattons. I actually used a spare set from one of Dragon's older Abrams. I don't build much British Cold War armor. I've got a Centurion and Challenger and both of those have the "exposed" smoke launchers.

You can count me in. Would a Type 59/69 be OK? I'd like to try one of Legend's conversions.

2.Christopher
3.Jakob
4.Sascha
5.Mike
6.Chris
7.Ryan
8.KoSprueOne
9.Me
We´re one short Lets see if this helps find a few more:
I want to see anything on a T54/55/62 hull
The nationality doesn´t matter. And this can cover anything apart from "what ifs".
MBT´s / Rocket tanks (Tank destroyers with a missile) / ARV´s / mine clearers / all the fantastic Israeli stuff / Rubbered Yugoslav freakys / Anti-Aircraft ......
You name it and if it existed (Prototypes included) you build it.
I call the Start date the 1.Dec.13 and run for 5 months.
Oh yes this does also include the for-runner of all these, the T44
