Can the IDF "Tiran 5" be considered in this campaign ?

If yes, I will sign up for it since I cannot resist building the one from tamiya.

Mike, you'll have to log in on the Campaign page to make the "Enlist" button appear. Just look in the top right hand corner and it'll display like you're not logged in. Not sure why it's doing that now, but I've seen it make you log in before...but not for a while.

Congrats John on the promotion.

I hope to be able to join in, it'll be my first campaign here Will wait and see if I get a kit which fits the criteria before I officially sign up. (I have a t-62 but already begun..)

One thing though, and it may be that it's a common bug or issue with campaigns here and being the newby I just miss the point, but the start/end dates are confusing:

START DATE: December 1st, 2013
ENDS: May 1st, 2013

Is that meant to be '14?

I just signed up.

I'm thinking of doing Legend's Type 69 conversion. Or T-54 1949. Or an Enigma.

Good thing I have 9 months to figure it out.

Hi John, did I miss something, or have I just now noticed
that you are "Campaigns Administrator" .
Have you just jumped in for Pete or taken total command
Well whatever I hope you still have enough time to do your cool builds, itīd be a shame if you donīt join in anymore .
Anyhow thanks for activating this one, and I hope you join us

Now to the players:
Welcome to Alex Bluestab, Christopher A, Jakob, Sascha,
Mike Tanksami, Chris G, Ryan, KoSprueOne, Grant, ChiefGunner, Cagkan, Paul A, David,S GIBBS, Mike mikado,
and Alex K. Hope I havenīt missed anyone to date, thanks guys, without you this would of stayed a none player

Well as you should have noticed this one is centered on the T54/55 T62 Chassis, and I mean anything as long as it existed. So Tirans, Arti, ARVīs, Rubber armour, Reativ Armour, Missile launchers, MBTīs, Anti Aircraft........

You can use what materials you want, or just straight from the box, you can do multiple builds, dioramas, or what ever.

I would really like to see anything scratched, and the Grandad of them all the T44

Please donīt ask if T64īs / 72īs / 80īs and co. can take part because the answer is NO.
I just want these oldschool hardcore killers, the backbones of the "opposing forces" from the cold war

O.k. gang lets make this one a Blockbuster, and you must
enjoy yourselfs even things donīt go to plan

I am just finishing my Tamiya M1A1 Abrams w/ mine plow from Tamiya it's all I have to do is finish primer and paint and weather it and that should take me a few weeks. I was doing a T-62 with a mig productions add on for taliban tank. Before I got hurt an it went missing so I would like to finish it and start it again an do a campaign with it and see how far I can finish it.

Since I got hurt it takes me slower than it used to do models so if I can some way to start earlier than the rest because to do this M1A1 Abrams has been at least on an off for this kit 6 to 8 months and still haven't finished my Abrams model an I still have to buy everything again for the T-62. I tried to find it but no luck I have to get everything again. I tried to signup and it wouldn't let me.But want to try an do a T-62 campaign.

Happy Modeling

William,
If it doesn't give you the "Enlist" button on the Campaign Page look up in the top right-hand corner. It probably will show that you're not logged in, even if you are logged in for Armorama. Just log in and it should let you enlist. It did it for both Mike and myself.

Hi guys,

I just enlisted! Was actually planning to start Ace's T-55 in June this year, after I finish up my Famo for the Tank Transporter campaign...But since this campaign is approved, I shall wait till December (if I can lol)

As some of you might know, this kit is quite rough, but buildable (so says some of the reviews i read lol).

In the meantime I shall look for some suitable & affordable PE parts to add to the build. I already ordered a replacement for the barrel from RB Model.

Cheers!

@ Chris A: that is not really what I meant with "anything",
but Iīm not a person to go back on what I said and change it. So if you wish go for it, should be an interesting scratch build .

@ Alex: the StuG III is based on an FV 432

@ Gary: welcome to you Mr Boggs my friend. I just hope you
donīt scare the players away with your fantastic builds

Nice choice there, are the reactive armour blocks single or multiple parts? Whatever youīll make īem look real

@William: a warm welcome to you too. Now to your problem, normal operating procedure is to give extra time at the end
of the campaign. This could go up to 4 weeks (@ John: please correct me if Iīm wrong), which would make the Campaign 6 months long. However if the guys on here donīt
have a problem with this, then I would let you start 2 weeks earlier - 15 November.
Lets see what the others say and also John our new "stand in" big toe.

@ Lawrence: a warm welcome to you also. Ace products, does that mean youīre playing in the Braille Scale?
If so cool, I think up ītill now this thing has only attracted the 1/35ers

Oh yes, if anyone wants to have ago at the "Bosnian Frankenstein" please do. I would like to see how someone else interprets this mashine
