Both. Use the armored cab of the M1078, M1083 kit, voyager rocket pods for the MLRS. And.... Scratch the rest?

May go with this one as well, not as "Extreme" but still cool, and maybe easier to pull off.

M1083 and the latest Italeri M978 (it has cargo version as well) and some scratch.

It looks 'EXTREME' enough for me!

Which make me think... maybe my German Wrecker doesn't measure up for this group build. Hmmmm...

Just saw your campaign Jeff and its a brilliant idea ..i have enlisted and i already have a truck in mine ,,one question for ya ,,is it ok if its sort of started ,,as in a big pile of used parts from other trucks ,,will still mean alot of scratch building tho .
This is the truck i have in mind

You guys must PLEASE show us what we're talking about being 'started' and then (and only then) if no one here enlisted to the Trucks Campaign objects to them, then far be it for me to turn anyone away.

The spirit of a Campaign is to show it's assembly from start to end. But it's your Campaign guys so you decide.

Guys,

I have been in on this since the thread started, enlisted now and wanted to know if a 'scud launcher' is classed as a truck? Been trying to con the wife into the funds for this kit and this is a perfect reason! As a kid my first 'army' toy was a scud launcher and I've loved them ever since, such a mean looking bit of kit!

Hi Guys.

This looks like fun. Let me know if this qualifies, it's extremely short!

I'd be using the Revell 1:24 Unimog 1500L and the Italeri crane accessory set.

I can't decide what to do. A Zil 157k maybe although the sa2 launcher version would be more extreme!

The Unimog more than qualifies Graeme!


Tough decisions Paul but make sure you have fun with it too.

Great Truck choices so far !

But I don't know if you read the Rules and Regs ..

"Must be an unstarted kit and must first show it along with the boxart and all other parts to be used. MUST show progress pictures too! This is essential!"

Just show what is done far, if everyone agrees just join in, no problem. If the progress is too far ahead and it doesn't fit this Campaign you can pick the Unfinished Business Campaign just after the Summer...

I hate it when I have some spare time and start searching on the web. IF it comes out in time, the Mirror models US Diamond T969 wrecker looks like another one I must have and enter with here after looking at the T-20.



Cost and availability may be the choice instead of the Einheitsdiesel with Bilstein recovery crane by IBG. I like what I see with Mirror Models and need to get one soon.
