With all of the engineer vehicles coming out, I thought what a good idea to have a campaign that focuses on them! I would say anything the engineers would have used, excepting tank transporters. The reason for not allowing tank transporters, is that there is a separate campaign for them. Whether it be a recovery vehicle, an afv with a dozer blade, a bulldozer or etc... Go For It!. I would want to start this one late this year or early next year. Let me know what you think.

Thank you for the speedy replies. Bedovere thanks you too. I'm hoping that entering later in the year will allow time for a few more vehicles to be available.

Yes, the D9R is at the top of my list.

I have several subjects in the stash that would fit nicely in this Campaign. I would be all for this one. Don M.

I'd be into this. Depending on time frame. I planned to join in the T54/55/62 campaign starting in December

No rush order, on this one. I'm sure there will be 10, by the time the start date rolls around.

I don't intend to kick off this campaign, before November. With the engineer kits, coming out soon I wanted to let everyone have a chance to order. However, I suppose I can get it started as soon as I have ten enlist and just continue it through mid next year.

November is soon enough. I am revamping the model work station, so I am putting everything on hold till I get it done. Hope to start on it this weekend. Don M.

Good luck! I do mine about once a month. It's always amazing the stuff I find that I forgot I had.

This might be a good one to pick my ICM BergePanther and update it with spares from Tamyia Panther G & Dragon's Panther D & F.
Lots of spare parts and PE left from those builds..

John: Sounds like an interesting build. I just love being able to pull parts from the spares bin.

I know Matt.
As you know when you finish a Dragon kit you are left with tons of spare parts.
In the last 2 yrs I've finished the D / F and Tamyia G, so I still have plenty of wheels, sprockets, a Top Hull, etc.. I know I have at least 2 full boxes of Panther spares..

So instead of going on a AM spree for the ICM kit, why not use these spares ?

My D9R arrived, today. I was impressed with the size and weight of the box. I will be doing a build review, on this one. I'll order a second, for this campaign. I think I will be doing the version, with slat armor. This should prove a daunting task.

that's going to be a seriously involved build. Looking forward to seeing the build review/WIP on it

I plan on purchasing a couple of these too

Just as an open box review, I highly recommend it. I can't vouch for the accuracy, though. I'll tackle that, with my build for this campaign.

Good build idea. This reminds me of the 2 Trumpeter Russian tractors too.

I'm thinking of building a BARV. Either Centurion or Sherman, or Leopard for that matter.
Does anyone have a set of comprehensible plans (drawings) on how to build one of these?
