This campaign is open to any subject from any era. The only restriction is that the predominant color must be White. It can be a field applied winter camo, a modern Arctic camo or even an APC on U.N. observer duty somewhere like the Sinai.

Here are the conditions:

I'm open to potential start dates. The end date will be December 31, 2020.

Anyone interested?

Hi Richard, I would be interested in this ... after years of avid watching everyone else's efforts it would be my first ever attempt at a campaign or even posting a pic of something I have made. I would be going for a probable WW2 German AFV in winter cam or a CVRT I was in while on UN duty in Bosnia.

John,

Don't worry. We've all had to start somewhere. The key is to have fun with it. Generally it's a pretty good crowd here. You'll just need to take comments with a grain of salt. Some things will be helpful and some you can just ignore!

So, that's two of us. Only eight more to go til we'll be official! Then we can talk about start dates! I'm open to whatever works for everyone else.

I'd be up for this! Tough choice between a whitewash or a UN scheme...

Exactly how long is this campaign? (My build rate means a two-model campaign needs to run a whole year...)

The way I build...at least six months! We'll see how it goes though. I probably won't take too much to get it to last the whole year.

Sounds interesting. All over white could be a nice challenge.

I have a Panhard AML 90 I was thinking of doing as an Argentine Falklands conflict vehicle, but maybe doing an Irish UN one is not a bad idea:



Have to check the kit and see if it has the right base options for turret, etc

Sounds good, Pete!

That's 5! We're halfway there. Any ideas on a start date? I don't know what other projects you folks have on your To-Do lists

Awesome! Welcome!

I've done the Revell-Germany MAN 5T for the Logistics World campaign that just ended. I did it in U.N. white and heavily chipped it. It didn't turn out too bad!

Argh!!! The timing of this campaign is terrible for me. I just finished a white Aerosan for the Trumpeter Campaign and am working on a CV90-40 in UN livery for the IFV Campaign. Maybe a winter camo then...

I'll commit tentatively. Would hypotheticals be allowed, such as late war/paper panzers in field applied winter camo?

Happy Modeling,
zon

Late war would be acceptable; but not one that was just in the design stage. Sorry, no paper panzers.
