Tat & Cristian - Thanks for the help fellas. I currently own both kits, but I've been out of town for work. I just got home and counted the Takom Chieftain Mk 5P. It comes in at 772 parts including indi link tracks, track pads and PE. If this is ok then that'll be my entry.

For the Meng M1A2 Abrams, the tracks alone comes out to 1124 parts. The kit total is around 1580 parts.

The Meng T72B3 is over 816 parts (I haven't counted all the trees yet).

Thanks for confirming the parts count for the Abrams kit, Gary.. I think I'll leave that kit for the 1000+ campaign

I guess I'll either enter with the Stryker mortar carrier, or the AAVP-7A1.

Cristian,
That's awesome! I've been trying to gather everything for an Achilles build for over a year. Between reviews and campaigns and such, it's been moved to the back burner at least 2 times. There's only one or two more things I need to get started. An Aber interior set and 17 pdr ammo or maybe I'll just scratch the corrections for the ammo storage... Either way, I'm excited to get this one started.

I guess we just need to go mug someone and drag them into this campaign commitment so we can finalize the plans. Wait... Mugging is wrong, how about we use the term "forcefully entice"... Yeah, that sounds better!

No worries Dustin. Doing an actual count would be the last recourse. Looking forward to your build.

Maybe I should also check if my planned Tiger I meets the minimum

Thanks for getting the time to check and report the part count, Gary!

"Forcefully entice"... yeah, that's what we should do At the pace the nine of us have summoned, I thought this was going to be a quick one.

Come on, tell your families and friends about this campaign! We only need one more for the submission

Viktor,
That sounds like an interesting build. I also believe you are the 10th person to commit to the campaign which means Cristian can submit the request now. Welcome aboard!

Welcome aboard, Viktor! The Meng PzH. 2000 looks like a great choice.

Thank you all! The proposal has been sent off so all we'll need to do now is be patient

The proposed start date is November 1, 2016 with end set to June 30, 2017. However, depending on the campaign administrators, this might still change.

Ok, since I have nothing else to do in 2017, I'll jump into the very deep end for this Campaign...with the Trumpeter Karl Morser-Gerat w/ railway carrier...;-)

Good to have you join, ComradeMP! The 760 parts of that kit are just about right for this campaign.

I am in for this one.

Now I have to go find a kit in the stash. I can probably skip those matchbox kits and move right on to look at Dragon premium kits

Would helicopters like the Trumpeter Hind be eligible? I don't know the parts count, but I have some aftermarket so it might reach 750.

Cheers!

Glad to have you join, Jesper!

Chris, if you can get the total count of actually assembled parts above 750, any kit would work. I'd be specially interested in seeing a Hind built, by the way! I guess you are talking about the one in 1/35, right? The kit itself has 468 parts apparently (according to this review) so getting this above 750 wouldn't be easy... but still worth a try!

Yes, the 1:35th one. I was hoping it would have more parts. My plan is to add barrel bombs, crew etc, but that really doesn't help. I'll see what else I have in my stash.

I have been eyeing the Hobby Boss kit of the Soviet T-50 infantry tank. The kit has a high parts count and the tracks are individual links which has kept this kit on the shelf for close to a year.

That's too bad as it is a cute little thing, kinda like a baby T-34 and the parts look great in the box.

Here is the parts count according to Missing-Linx:



MasterClub in Russia has now released a set of metal tracks for this kit. This track set will replace some of the kit parts but add an inner & outer track pin for each link. With the track kit we go from three parts short to well over the 750. Adding tow cables and other gear should bring the count up even higher.

Here is a link to the review:

http://www.missing-lynx.com/reviews/russia/hobbyboss83827reviewcs_1.html

Will this be OK for this build?

Kits with really high parts count tend to be a bit on the pricey side and some kits don't show the parts count on the box which makes its a bit difficult to obtain a product that fits the requirements for this campaign.

I've been deliberating for a while now and after some checking, I think the Bronco kit CB35214 (German sWs armoured cargo vehicle) which I have been meaning to get should fit the bill. I had to count the parts based on an image of the instructions from the internet. Save for the photoetch parts which are too hard to see properly, the plastic parts should total to about 850 to 900 (I might have missed or overcounted as the image blurs out when zoomed in)

Well...time to make my bank account suffer yet again...
