I know there are a few of us here who enjoy building kits by Bronco, so I thought it would be great to get a Bronco only campaign on the go.

Rules would pretty much be:
Any kit be it armour, aircraft or ships as long as they are made by Bronco.
Any scale as long as it's a Bronco kit.
Aftermarket etch, resin, barrels etc would be allowed as would a diorama scene to showcase the model.

Campaign could run from December until August 2014, allowing plenty of time for a build.

Award would be a campaign ribbon on successful completion.

I would be building the Zrinyl assault gun if this campaign gets the green light.

Bronco kits are pretty darned nice, IMHO and from my modest experience with a few armor subjects/kits albeit there could a case be made for some needless complication and over-engineering in some... ).

I would be interested in participating if this takes off, and have a few in the stash waiting for air, light, fondling and clipping, cement, and paint

I just acquired a German capture H39 with the 28cm rockets slung on the sides. That would be my entry.

So that's five of us
We just need another five and we will be official

I am tossing up between the Zrinyl assault gun or the Fahrgestell Zugkraftwagen 5t half track with 3.7cm flak, the half track is extremely detailed with so many small parts to assemble!
Even the K98 rifles have separate bolts and clips!

Hi Jason.
Just a one thing, if you want to get this campaign hitting green light, maybe you should set the starting time somewhere next year? There's just so many campaigns going on right now or starting early next year. But idea is great because Bronco has released many interesting and not so main stream kits during couple years.

Hi Jason,
I agree with Kimmo I am falling way behind in the 20 campaigns that I am already enlisted for. So a later time frame would help me out
I plan on building a Bronco kit for the Armored Car Campaign and that leaves me with one other Bronco kit in the stash

I'd be in but I have to agree a later start and a long run would be much prefered. Sort of like april/may for a year or something. I love bronco kits but sweet lord do they take time to build.

Cheers Tristan.

Due to popular demand, I will suggest that we start the campaign in April and run it for 1 year.
Yes Bronco kits do take a while, I have the Panzer II Ausf.D that I have been building on and off for a couple of months now.
So yes a late start would be better, and I do have plenty of other kits that I can enter into other campaigns as well. To keep me occupied until the April start for this one.

I think 1 year Campaigns tend to be too long, people tend to loose interest and after some time you get to have 1 or 2 months without a single post on that thread.
I would prefer to have Campaigns with 8/9 months and then award a few extra time for the late finishers.

OK easily done, start in April and go until November 2014.

I'm away for a couple of days and so much has happened!
Cool news that we have this campaign up and running

Sean that campaign ribbon is exactly what I had in mind, thanks very much

I think I will save my Zrinyl assault gun for this challenge, and an April 1st start gives us all plenty of time to plan!
