The Swedish campaign (untitled) is now official.

Thomas - 2 things.

1. It needs a name. It hopefully won't be our last Swedish campaign so can we give it a proper mission name...like Codename: Stockholm Surprise...err...or something.

2. You should also submit a campaign proposal for this in Swedish so that we have something for those people who might access it via the Swedish language interface.

Thanks,
Jim

Swedish version of the campaign up and running now. And we even got a name for them. In true democratic spirit I have decided to go with TheSwedes name suggesion: Swedish steel . So, that is the official name of it all.

I have decided to build the battleship Vasa... an airfix Model of the ship that was going to be the pride of the swedish navy in the 17th centruary. A few hundred meters out fropm port, on its maiden voyage, it sank! It was dredged up again about 50 years ago and presides in the Vasa Museum in Stockholm ... almost fully intact.
The airfix kit looks a bit basic and I have never built anything other than armoror figures,so this will be a challenge.
The only other easy choice is the S-tank released by trumpeter, and Im sure many will enter this, so I thought Id do something different for a change!

Don't think anyother has thought about doing a ship so it will be interesting! Good luck with it Frank.

*bump

I'm in with an Italeri 1/72 Gripen (thanks ThomasB) or was the Revell one better?

Revell has released two diiferent kits in 1/72, the first one you should stay away from, it's very very inaccurate in every possble way!

The second release is the same as the Italeri kit. The same kit has been released under the Italeri, Revell, Airfix and Tamiya label.

Oh my! Stick with the Italeri one. Besides, it costs only about $7 USD :-)
