Would be a great build...

Just not sure if I can make the front left wheel wonky like very supermarket trolley



I love it! But I see the design flaw - the slatted sides let all that valuable spent brass fall out...

(But I wouldn't mind having one for my next trip to the supermarket. )

You should be able to if you do it in 1/6th scale.

Just signed up - now I need to decide on a subject! There's a converted Leopard "shop tractor", or the Spanish M60-based CEV with digger bucket arm instead of main gun, but time will be an issue...

I like Roger's armoured quarry dump truck, but ONLY if he adds a figure with that "bank robber" stocking mask!



Tom....

Oh go for the shop Leopard "shop tractor".... it is but a small thing. For a moment thoughts of the Hippo to go with the other BARV crossed my mind, but that WOULD be a bit to much.

I do have a big ERTL dump truck... 8^D

Bob



Alright Bob, you're on!



Tom,

I guess I am feeling totally stupid... right now I am seriously considering taking a run at the Hippo. At least I have drawings for this one...

Yea, that is a pretty extreme conversion...other campaigns have been generous to the rules for me, so I can too, looking forward to your ugly tank, LOL

I know that it is pretty much a tank with a bigger gun but would a Bison I be okay?

It was this huge SiG howitzer, wheels and carriage put on top of a Panzer I chassis. If the whole thing doesn't look improvised "let's put a howitzer on a tank" I don'the know what does.

Ok, here's what I'm going to build, a "Bantu": A Staghound Mk. I with a "Lulu" mine detector prototype contraption added. 5 were built, none exist, 2 pictures I have to work from!



Well, that certainly looks funny. Should be interesting to see that built. I'd never try anything like that myself, too fragile-looking lol.

I guess flamethrower vehicles could merit a campaign of its own. Your bridgelayer pics remind me of a Trumpeter Bruckenleger IV in me stash. Hmmmm...

Tat-I'm loving that demolition charge layer...
I guess we can accept the flamethrower IF the finished product INCLUDES the flame...LOL,otherwise, it looks pretty much like a regular tank ;-)
Vicious-Looks like an intriguingly scratchbuild piece, so go for it you want, I'd love to see some kitbashing going on for this campaign...but that is NOT required, there are some very nice kits that fit the bill!!

Am eyeing this for now -- a demolition charge layer:

This was the "Tanko" MK.I used by the venetian separatist in 1997 to occupy San Marco in Venice

http://nuovavenezia.gelocal.it/venezia/foto-e-video/2014/04/02/fotogalleria/dov-e-finito-il-vecchio-tanko-del-1997-1.8970078#1

And this was the "Tanko" MK.II catch by Carabinieri before the second attempt to occupy Venice few year later

Here are some more ideas to get the creative juices flowing...











The Campaign Building starts 1/1/17, but the planning can start now!

Yea, I hadn't really thought about civilian vehicles converted to miltary use...the possibilities are nearly endless here, gotta keep some control, LOL

Cool ribbon Clayton!

If converted civilian vehicles are allowed, then you may need to amend the rules -- just so that anyone who may later come upon this campaign see the breadth of potential subjects.

Cheers,

Tat
