Well, I guess I should start it off. The usual rules. :-)

I'll get the campaign proposal in.

I'm definitely in having done the last two campaigns and finally shifted some of my half done kits. It even inspired me to finish a Panzer IV (that I didn't enter) that had been sat there for 15 years. I think my first one will be an LRDG Chevvy which I gave up on about 3 years ago as I got distracted by something else that arrived. After that there's a few more candidates in the stash including some that need a facelift.

I've joined so many campaigns and hardly finished, much less started. Many of my kits are early 80s to early 90s. I probably have enough for the next 20-30 of these campaigns (assuming I live that long).

Anyways, I had a start date of January 1, so go ahead and post a start picture and start in. Hopefully the proposal will be approved before anyone finishes!

I will post my starting picture soon (although I could probably use my UB16 picture).

Sweet, I'll join this with my ODS M1A1 Abrams. I'll take some picture when I get back in town.

I'm in, again, but the last two year's entries here medaled at AMPS East/Armorcon, so I'll keep the streak going.

Woo hoo! First to enlist!

I have an M3 Lee I started for Whole Hog campaign in 2015, and failed to make any progress on for UB16, so why not try again. I've only got 12 active campaigns (13 now) in the queue...

Well 2016 was an absolute disaster for me - didn't finish anything , started a number of projects (serial project starter ) but couldn't keep the interest going right through. So I'll have a shuffle around in the projects bins and see what is most deserving of completion.
On the upside - I have resisted starting anything this year .

I have a stack of unfinished kits in various scales, mostly 1/35 but a couple of 1/9, and 1/48. I have been using campaigns as motivation to get a few kits finished lately so, depending on timelines, I could be in on this I think.

Gary, Are you going to do the ball and chain armor under the turret basket?
It's a time consuming process to stratch, but looks great when done.
I did one years ago with model RR chain, fine strand wire and the craft beads (but the ball chain metal balls would have better I found).

Good luck
Mike

I have enough trouble finishing them just 'out of the box'. That would be tempting Fate.

I am in with this



It is sitting in the shelf for a long time because I had to calm my nerves.
Now I give it a second chance.
Does anyone have a suggestion from which color manufacturer should I take the deep bronze green?

Happy modelling
Harald

I'd be up for this too, I have loads and loads of half built what many would call shelf queens, but mine are stacked up on the floor, so I have loads of floor queens....

When I dug through my stash for Hanger Queen 7, I found 24 started but unfinished aircraft builds. I also found 4 unfinished armor kits. I outta enter one here and see if I can finally finish one of them...

This will be my first entry as I've found a few others that need finishing off. I'm currently building an Opel Blitz for the Campaign 150. It's destined for a dio and my plan is to have it loaded up with fuel drums (being unloaded) next to a couple of panzers (not decided what yet). I need a second lorry carrying ammo for the panzers. While I was debating where to get the second Blitz from I remembered I'd got a couple of scrappers in the cupboard so I've cannibalised them to make one good one like I did with the Panthers last year. This is what it looks like at the moment.



A front wheel and a back wheel have snapped at the axle so they'll need fixing and the boards that make up the cargo box are full of sinkholes so they'll need filling and that's at the start. Hopefully this will work out okay.
