Do we have any interest in a campaign of coal burners? Standard parameters I imagine:

12 mos (starting sometime in 2021)
any ship as long as it burned coal. (If it's a coal burner that later converted to something else, it should be modeled as it was when it was a coal burner)
Nothing more than 25% started already

Normally I am down for any Shipwrights campaign but unfortunately I don't have a single coal burner in the stash

Seems like this would be a good time to fix the deficiency in your stash....

I'd love to be in on this, but I know I wouldn't have the time to finish any thing I might start.

This is the ICM 1/350 Markgraf. Long stalled. Although I have probably used more than 25% of the plastic...plus thrown away below the waterline... there is a ton of work to do: The regular OOB stuff as well as changing the foremast to a Jutland period fit. Attaching the Hull to the seascape, as well as detailing the water's surface.




I would be in if you'd allow. I need to get her launched.

I think that would be ok.

Hi Phil,

Great idea, there are a goodly number of interesting ships out there

I am in, I have the Micro Mir USS Monitor and the Bronco Chin Yuen in the stash.

Cheers

I'd also join. Nothing suitable in stash, but I'll find something to build...

I would have two candidates for the Campaign to choose:

1) SMS Dresden, the "Ghost cruiser of the Magellans"
2) SMS Vulkan, a U-Boat salvation ship

Count me in

Count me in. I've got an old Heller 1/400 L'Occident paddle wheeler I've been wanting to try. I'm thinking about converting it to an ACW blockade runner as it has the basic lines.

That would be EPIC!

Ok, folks, we need one more. Who's going to make it happen?

Put me down. I am sure Santa or some other holiday figure will help me fill my deficiency

I have submitted the proposal. Start date of mid December this year (in case someone wants to get started over the holidays) with a completion date at the end of next year.

Phil,

I took another look at the proposed campaign ribbon; it is attractive full sized, but in tiny ribbon size it is hard to discern what it is supposed to be.



I propose an alternative design:



What do we all think of this one?

I'm REALLY FLEXIBLE when it comes to award ribbons. But I do like the second a lot.

Ok, I've added the new ribbon to the Burnin' Coal Campaign page!
