I'd say the Battle of the Atlantic was part of the Western Front/ETO. A Condor would be a cool entry, so I'm down with it!



Thanks. I'll have to seriously consider choosing Condor.

I've got some really nice models that would fit right in ETO campaign: Do 17Z, Gloster Gladiator, He 111, Hawker Typhoon, Bf 109E, Avro Lancaster. Trouble is I cannot commit myself as I'm already in Soviet Phoenix campaign and signed up for Airfix IV. My working pace is quite slow, so it may take me months to finish those.

Been a change in plans. Moving my Airfix Typhoon to the Airfix campaign and my P-47 to CBI. So I will be doing Eduard's Fw 190F-8 for the ETO. I do love the artwork on this box.

Hi guys!
Definately I'm in don't know yet what build but I just want to do that.

Michael just as a loose question have you considered having alternate ribbon for participants entering with more than one build? I don't mean anything extraordinary but for example adding colour border or a 'diamond' to the standard one.

Anyways see you around

Interesting idea Bart but the system doesn't allow that. I think the one ribbon per modeler per campaign is probably the right rule, we don't want to get too complicated. Glad to have you aboard!

Well Bob, I went the other way. I'v got 4 Mustang chassis on the shelf of shame, one 1/48 P-51D, a 1/72 D, an A and an A-36. I had to do the T-bolt for self defense.

Mark, I will need to pick up some markings for the Mustang since they did not come with the kit.

Hi Michael,

If I read correctly, after ETO campaign there will be a MTO campaign?? That one would be cool, since I have quite a few kits on the stash that would fit nicely.

Now, about the ETO, count me in, this time not going with a Luftwaffe subject (Surprise!!) but a good ol P-38 1/48 with some goodies. It will be my very first attempt at the "devils fork" as I believe the Germans called it, but also a first at trying the olive drab camo.

I will be a late starter at this campaign since I have 2 projects at my desk at this moment.

Cheers,
Pedro

Sounds like a couple of good ones! There will indeed be an MTO campaign somewhere down the line, so that'll be a good one too.

Will there be an PRO campaign in the future?

Bob,

You mean a PTO campaign? Yep, there will be a Pacific campaign as well.

Sorry about that Michael. It is cedar fever (allergy) time here and my left eye is swollen at the time of typing or trying to type.

Yes PTO was supposed to be my question.

Ah yes, I remember Cedar Fever, that time of year when Hill Country residents don't breathe the air, they eat it!

Okay what the heck count me in too. I was going to sit this one out but I saw this kit in the stash and its perfect for this campaign small, simple and detailed enough to keep me happy. Hasegawa 1/72 fw-190A-7 and I'll probably use the kit markings for black 3.

Already signed up for this one I'm feeling a coastal command 489 Squadron RNZAF Beaufighter. Although I do have a Valom 1/72 scale Hampden Torpedo bomber in the stash that's calling me. Which coincidentally is also 489 Squadron. Actually I'll go with that I'll save my 1/32 scale TF-X for another time.

Well, believe it or not, it's 1 February GMT, so this campaign is now live. The official thread can be found here, please post all campaign related discussion and photos in that thread. This current thread will now be closed and locked.

See you there!
