Anyone interested in a mini-art campaign? I was looking back through past campaigns and I see a few vendor campaigns, but I didn't see one for mini-art.

Phil, if you are looking at a 2021 start I will say yes, would it be anything from their range ? buildings etc ?

I'm really flexible, John.

I was thinking 2021 and probably lasting a year because they make so many interior kits I think people would like to have time to do them.

And yes, anything in their catalog.

Sounds good. Would probably build one of their what-if kits.

I like the idea as well with it being next year, I will be in too. Maybe I can talk one of my clubs into doing a group build that overlaps and kill two birds with one stone.

I'm in. I have their AEC MK III Armoured Car I have wanted to build for a while, but shuffled it down the list a few times.

I would be interested in a 2021 campaign. I have one of their T-55's in my stash I could do.

I love it! They have a bunch of interesting stuff that isn't strictly military that I find really fascinating.

I have already:
- a Soviet horse drawn Zis-2 or Zis-3 that I think is really interesting
- a railway Gondola (I already assembled their dead-end track set and thought that was a lot of fun)
- an SU-85
- a Polish T-55

I'm doing the SU-85 for the snow white campaign. If I can hold off starting on the T-55 (I don't know why I have a sudden urge to do Cold Wars tanks) I may go with that for this. I'm pretty interested in the horse drawn artillery too. It will be a fun campaign - they have so much interesting stuff in their catalog.

Hi Phil,

If the kickoff would be in 2021, than I would participate with a no-interior T-55 kit.

I have thought about the tram kit I have on hand but will probably do the WLA motorcycle instead.

I have eyed both of those. I thought about doing a motorcycle, perhaps married with a Soviet sidecar from the Zvezda kit for the lend lease campaign.

I would like to do a bombed out tram in Stalingrad diorama some day. I have this feeling though that once I got into the miniart kit I'd want to build it in service and undamaged.

I think I will make a vignette with this one.

I like the look of that kit. This is the one I have.

I do like the rider pushing the bike also.

Hey Harv:
That Rifleman has a Submachine Gun. Looking forward to your build. I've been thinking about building a small vignette. Hopefully I'll get inspired by builds like the one you're doing.
Take care and stay safe,
Don "Lakota"

I hereby humbly offer my service to this community as one who can predict when there will be a 20% weekend special on miniart at SprueBrothers. I bought a Mini-art kit from them on Tuesday et voila, 20% off sale this weekend. The last time I bought a mini-art kit from them early in a week, voila, 20% off sale the next weekend....

Phil, if you're going to be the campaign leader go ahead and submit the proposed campaign and I'll get it approved so people can start enlisting for it.

Scroll up the thread a bit. It's Friday night, I know.....
