Hi folks,

i was wondering if anyone would be interested in a Tank Destroyer campaign?

lets stop building the bait and go for the hunters instead.

so here's my idea 1/72 to 1/16 scale. any era, any nation, turret/no turret and and any kit manufacturer, let me know if you would be interested, i've lodged an official proposal this evening.

I might. I have AFV Club's Wiesel TOW in the stash. It would also be the excuse I need to get Fine Mold's JGSDF Type 60 106mm Recoil-less Rifle Vehicle.

I'll have to skip this one. My tank destroyer is 1/144 scale.
Take care,

Hi mate,

i like to run long campaigns to give people time to enjoy it so i am hoping to start the campaign in January and have it end in September, let me know what you think, at the moment everything is still fluid.

In!(Think I'm the 10th volunteer)

I'll build a Bulgarian SU-100 from the height of the Cold War.
Just love to cut and throw away the old Zvezda's plastic

So, the beginning of September or the end of September? Can always extend it if enough people need it in order to finish.

I wonder what kind of vehicles in modern era would be acceptable for this campaign.

Figures with rocket launcher are accepted ?

not really, they'd be more at home in an anti tank/tank hunter team campaign. this more about vehicles purposefully built to destroy tanks some of which have been repurposed for modern conflicts.

Hi! I'm in. The question is what to use. There are 10 models to choose from. Maybe some Marder.

You've twisted my arm, so I've signed up. Probably the Hetzer, although I do have a Sturer Emil gazing at me balefully.
