1⁄76Matchbox AFV Nostalgia Campaign II
It was a great campaign that brought back memories of childhood modelling. And I must say, there are some very talented modellers at the smaller scale. I would like to personally thank all who joined the campaign and shared their builds. And here is looking forward to a Matchbox III campaign in the future. Kevin Kevin Brant, having sneaked envious glances over the fence at an Aeroscale Matchbox campaign, had decided that the time was right for another armoured Matchbox Campaign. So it was that on 1st September 2012, he and twenty nine cohorts peered out as dawn broke over the polystyrene battlefield, armed with a variety of two-toned vintage Matchbox kits and monotone Revell re-releases. Some failed to make it to the start line, and many were the casualties that fell by the wayside, so that by 28th February of the following year, only 17 were able to retire from the field as veterans and thus receive the campaign medal:
- Casualmodeler: Krupp Protz
