Looks good! Could you maybe rotate the text to be parallel to the brick's edges, the way it is done on the current logo and maybe use the same font?

Thanks!

Howdy Y'all
This was the first time I've been the first one to sign up for a campaign. Wow.
Anyone know what they're going to build? I've got a few possibilities I've been pondering. At the top of the list is an old MPC AT-ST painted as an Eastern Block machine.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

Digging through the stash, I'm thinking of a Russian Horse-drawn gun at the Battle of Kursk, which would require a lot of scratch, all the tack, etc....but I have a certain attention-deficit syndrome when it comes to campaigns, so I can't guarantee I won't change my mind 5 times....

Thank you, John!

I'm not sure about what I'm going to build yet. Maybe some 1/72 jet as it is a while since I last built anything with wings.

I am in with some Sci-Fi stuff. Not sure what yet.

Looking forward to get started.

I thought a 1/6 MG 42 would be make it, but just found out the parts count was over the limit. Maybe a FlaK or small artillery kit in 1/35 will do. A braille kit would surely make it, but I'd rather leave that as a last recourse.

@John: Absolutely no need to apologize. There was barely any delay!

@Jesper: Sci-fi sounds cool! Something definitely different.

@Tat: The MG42 would have been a great kit to see built. How much would you be above the part 150 count? We certainly have tolerances here.

Thanks Cristian. Well, the box says over 160 parts but let me take a second look. It may meet the required parts count if just built with its bipod. I know I have some other 1/6 kits, just need to remember where I stashed it

I think 160 is still within the right range. Don't limit yourself just because of the parts count.

That must be a sizable stash you've got there!

LOL -- I turned out to be more of a collector than a modeller since I got back to the hobby a few years back. Thanks for the flexibility Cristian. As luck would have it I found the other 1/6 kit that would surely fit the specs -- its an MG 15 with a tripod mount. Its about 80 parts, so I'll go with this one. My first time to tackle a kit on this scale so this will be a good practice before going into the more complicated MG 42. Looking forward to the start date. Cheers, Tat

I built Eduard's 1/48 Floh for the first 150- Campaign, so I think this time I'll do something else "Eggish" or "Chibi."

I have a shelf full of different "Chibi" kits...maybe a ship? Hmmmmm......

Love the egg kits myself so I'm all in for seeing one built. Especially if it is a ship!

Nice one, Martin! The sand coloured schemes are my favourite. Which one are you going for?

I thought I would get the ball starting and There is my entry from start to finish for this campaign and set the bench mark.

The LVT is basic in construction and works out about 82 pieces. The figures are from dragon and trumpeter and
All painted with Vallejo and Tamiya paints and weathered. The foliage is made mainly from plastic tropic fish plants and painted
