Here's an idea for a Campaign that, while I am sure has been done before, might make for a fun 2nd half of this year. Let me throw out some ideas, and see if any of this sticks! Of course, chime in please with any ideas!

INSPIRATION- Find a photo online, or scanned from a book, of the Battle Damage that inspires your creative juices to want to recreate it as a static model, a vignette, or a full blown diorama.

SUBJECT- Any military vehicle from any conflict from any nation- armored vehicles, aircraft, ships, and whatever is left over. If your photo inspiration is a burned out Tiger, you don't have to build the Tiger, use the photo and the Panzer II sitting on your shelf instead! Already built models are allowed, just post a “before” photo! This is a chance to use an old model that was built “so-so”, a broken or missing parts kit, a really poorly manufactured kit, or whatever you have lurking, taking up space.

TECHNIQUES- A great opportunity to try some really different modeling skills, as we usually are trying to build a complete representation of something. Realistic Battle Damage can be a challenge to re-create realistically, so let's have some fun here. The amount of damage to the vehicle needs to be substantial, so let's say 5-10 on a 1-10 scale of “None” to “Catastrophic”.

TIME FRAME- We have quite a few Campaigns ending during the Summer, so I was thinking of making this one to run from May or June through Dec. 31.

Any and All comments welcome! The "official" thread is in the Armorama site, but I've seen a lot of heroic B-17's landing without 75% of the tail fin, so this might be something the Wingers can latch onto!
