Ok I know it's been a while in coming, and I hope this will be worth the wait for the many who have been requesting this.

The campaign rules and criteria will be similar to the original campaign:

All subjects welcome as long as they deal directly with the campaign focus, any scale, dioramas and vignettes welcome as always, open to all of the Kitmaker network.

I have already had a request to extend the time focus to the 1930's, and after careful consideration I have accepted this and will use the historical time line from 1930-1970's.

I welcome any ideas or questions as always, so please feel free to share your thoughts.

I am guessing that you will want this campaign to start off as soon as possible, and to run for a full year, but I will wait to hear from you first.

Cheers,
Jeremy H.

Hey Jeremy!

I'm ready to go whenever everyone else is. I have a few things I have been holding off on for this new campaign to start.

I plan on doing two PMC busts. One of a Special Forces LT and the other will be a modification of their 1st CAV trooper.

I will probably do a single figure or two as well as a diorama/vignette of an ambush element.

I might also try my hand at armor/vehicles with an M113 from 2nd BN 47th IN (MECH), an M151, and or a M274 MULE.

I know it seems kind of ambitious, but I will try to get as much done as possible.

Cheers!
James

Jeremy,
And here we go again ! Actually, if TSA II is half as good as TSA I, we should have a tremendous campaign again. Tentatively, I will probably see what I can do with an old Monogram F-8E Crusader. I love the old monogram kits, and the F-8 was one of their better ones. Plus there are plenty of colors to add !

Plus a question for you. Since we are winding up TSA I, are you going to be awarding the ribbon to the participants ?

And I'm sure most of the rules and regs for TSA I will apply for TSA II, except to add the wider years ?

Looking forward to another Great Campaign ! Semper Fi......Bruce

BTW - I'm ready to start whenever you call it, and a year's time sounds good.

Bruce, ribbons should have been awarded a while back. Are you not showing one on your profile?

Yes on the rules, just wider years as you stated.

F-8E will be great! Looking forward to seeing more of your work on those old Monogram kits

I missed the first TSA campaign where do i sign up for the second. It would be mid Aug before I could go full swing, but if its lasts a year that would'nt matter. This would be some motivation for me only thing I've built up lately is my stash. And its all Vietnam era.

Jeremy,
My apologies, I just double checked and the ribbon is there. So I'm good to go whenever you call for the sign up. Hopefully, we'll get a good cross section of players from all sections of the Kitmaker family ! Semper Fi ....Bruce

I'll go for a second tour !
I have in mind a figure or two,(as usal for more than 14 years now).
As you have extended the time frame, I'll might do some french troops, either indochina war (OOB)or WWII (scratch).
It would be very cool to see some chopper/huey.
Best,
Julien

Keenan: Can't sign up just yet. We need a certain number on board before I can submit it. Glad to have you with us

Bruce: Not a problem, and thanks for reminding me that I need to go extend invitations to our sister sites

Julien: It's great to see your work as always!

James: Great! This way you don't have to wait to get started on those busts, and you will get an additional ribbo

Hi Jeremy,

i was very far from the finish line for the first one, so i was eager to see this second part to take a revenge !
Count me in for a single figure, certainly from the French 50's involving ...

cheers

Count me in.
I have an AFV Ckub Aussie Centurion and Tamiya M113 with the Saladin turret in the stash. If we have a build time of a year I can try to do both.

Thanks John! And there is no scale limit, but I didn't see an any scale option.

Don't forget to enlist fellas! I see a lot of great project ideas, and I think I may go with Dragon's new M48A3 myself. They are part of what inspired my to create the first campaign. Can't go wrong with any of these options

Cheers
