This is to announce a replacement campaign which was originally proposed by Kenneth Ostergaard earlier this year, but somehow it went wrong.

Therefore I have resubmitted this campaign as Leopardmania 50 to celebrate 50 years of service for Leopard 1.

Originally, I started this in the Modern Armour Forum but realise it should be here in the Campaigns Forum. This is the original thread which now runs to 4 pages: http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=240558&page=1

In September 1965, the Bundeswehr received the first production batch of their new MBT - the Leopard tank. This MBT was the backbone in many European countries during the Cold War. Now, 50 years later, it is still an essential part of the tank force in many countries. It developed through many versions and all countries have made their own peculiarities too; and then there are all special purpose vehicles too.

Leopardmania 50 campaign on FaceBook

I thought it might be fun if we could see what our entrants are building as we go along. The Campaign rules only require photos at the start and completeion of the build. Of course you are free to post your build photos right here on Armorama. I just figured that FaceBook might be easier to use for those of you already there.

HOWEVER, and please take note, Rule 11 states that you must add your start and finish photos to the Campaign Gallery here: http://gallery3.kitmaker.net/showgallery.php/cat/30157

Basic rules are:

1 Any Leopard 1-based vehicle. Any country. Any model manufacturer. Out of the box, conversion, scratch built - anything goes. Any MBT or special purpose vehicle.

2 No fantasy colour schemes and no WOTIFs.

3 Scale - any.

4 Leopard Workshop will offer the winner a prize of LW accessories of the winner's choice up to a value of 100 euros/72 GBP/110 USD.

5 Also, if the winner uses any Leopard Workshop parts, I will refund the purchase price of those parts used.

6 Partially started kits ARE allowed provided that the kit is NOT more than 50% finished. (Having only un-started kits will severely limit the appeal and potential number of participants. I mean really what does it matter if the kit is started or not and as several people have already stated they have began their Leopards, so I think 50% is just fine. This will be somewhat subjective but I think everyone will understand the intent.)

7 Building can be started if NOT more than 50% of the kit is finished on the official start date (see above).

8 Posting your builds in other campaigns IS allowed.

9 A start photo must be posted proving the start date - for example, time and date on a mobile or a newspaper - with the model/kit box/whatever point you are starting at.

10 A photo of the finished model must appear in the thread to be eligible for a ribbon or to be in the running for a prize.

11 Add your start and finish photos to the Campaign Gallery here: http://gallery3.kitmaker.net/showgallery.php/cat/30157. See below.

12 More than one model can be entered but you will only get one ribbon!

13 The campaign will start on 1 December 2015 and run to 1 June 2016.

Loading photos to the Campaign gallery
You will need to be logged into Armorama.

Go to Gallery on the home site, then Campaigns, then 2015 Campaigns. Locate Leopardmania 50 and click it open.

Top right of the panel you should see Upload Photos. Click and then in the Upload Photo panel, Browse to find your image on your computer. Enter any details if you want to (not obligatory, but useful). Once selected, click Upload/Submit.

Make sure the photos are small. Knock them down to 72 or 100 dpi. It won't accept hi-res photos. Maximum File Size: 3072kb file size limit.

That should do the trick and your image should be in the Campaign Gallery.
