I'm way behind on my HalfTrack too.
I will try, but there's too much to be done...

hello all,
got home this afternoon. the docs did a 5x heart bypass. some great builds going on here, keep up the great work.
@Harv,
Thank You,Randy. I hope you will be here for the next one.

I think that the blitz campaigns are what are keeping me alive. you modelers like them so much. so i have to think about the next one and forget about the cancer or my heart or what is wrong with my body today,LOL.
Cheers,
Bruce

Wow!

Guess I must really have been day-dreaming - maybe off on another planet! It's OVER and here I thought somehow that this was good until June 06 or such, being about Normandy and all that

Saw some good and interesting stuff here. Congrats and a Good Job, Guys, to all who got their stuff done!

Having spaced things and gotten distracted, , I suppose I'll complete that Pz 1-C post this one!

Hmmmmm.

I've checked a few previous campaigns and 20-25% is about the norm for most campaigns. Plus, this one was running alongside the D-Day Armor 2 Campaign. That probably hurt numbers a bit.

sorry for the extra post but the edit timer ran out on me. That was suppose to be "20-35%" not "20-25%".

Hello Alex & Anthony,
You are right about the numbers, both of you. Unless you offer prizes, you will get about 25% complete range.
If i get more i am thankful for them, also this is blitz 5 so there has been 4 other blitz campaigns before this so you have a burn out.
you also have the " i am new here , I am signing up on every campaign because I can build 2 a weekend" till they figure it out.
thanks for the % numbers,
Cheers,
Bruce

I started mine, but didn't make it, started too late I'm afraid.
Some Campaigns are crowded but don't have many finishers, last year I got a Campaign with just 1 member finishing it..

Anyway, I'm going for the next Blitz for sure

It's easy to get too enthusiastic about campaigns. I'm bad about it.

I had checked a few campaigns and the funny thing was that the two with the lowest finish percentage were also the two with the highest numbers of enlistees.

Anyway, I've been tempted to propose a new End of Days styled Campaign but given the finish numbers of the last one I'm probably not.

@Harv,
Thank You,Randy. I hope you will be here for the next one.



You're welcome Bruce. I am sure I will be there for the Blitz 6 campaign. I have taken part in all five so far. I figure I will just keep on riding along. Hope you get to feeling better quickly. Been down the cancer road myself. 15 year survivor. Thank you for this series of campaigns.

Thanks,
Randy

Sad but true. It tends to happen a lot. I myself have signed up for campaigns and had to drop out for one reason or another. The bad thing is that there are a lot of cool campaign ideas and it easy to want to sign up and then before you know it you are enlisted in 10 to 12 campaigns all running about the same time frame. Easy to get overwhelmed. That is why I am selective now on which ones I join. Like the upcoming Blitz 6 campaign....

I was in one before where I was one of the two people that completed it.

Don't give up the thought Alex. I enjoy those types of campaigns. Post-Apocalypse themes are pretty popular these days.

Thanks everyone.
