Here's an idea for a Campaign that, while I am sure has been done before, might make for a fun 2nd half of this year. Let me throw out some ideas, and see if any of this sticks! Of course, chime in please with any ideas!

INSPIRATION- Find a photo online, or scanned from a book, of the Battle Damage that inspires your creative juices to want to recreate it as a static model, a vignette, or a full blown diorama.

SUBJECT- Any military vehicle from any conflict from any nation- armored vehicles, aircraft, ships, and whatever is left over. If your photo inspiration is a burned out Tiger, you don't have to build the Tiger, use the photo and the Panzer II sitting on your shelf instead! Already built models are allowed, just post a “before” photo! This is a chance to use an old model that was built “so-so”, a broken or missing parts kit, a really poorly manufactured kit, or whatever you have lurking, taking up space.

TECHNIQUES- A great opportunity to try some really different modeling skills, as we usually are trying to build a complete representation of something. Realistic Battle Damage can be a challenge to re-create realistically, so let's have some fun here. The amount of damage to the vehicle needs to be substantial, so let's say 5-10 on a 1-10 scale of “None” to “Catastrophic”.

TIME FRAME- We have quite a few Campaigns ending during the Summer, so I was thinking of making this one to run from May or June through Dec. 31.

I may try this... I want to! But I have so much going on right now. Too many campaigns! I need to get caught up.

Back in 2012 there was the Knocked Out Campaign

http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Campaigns&file=index&req=showcontent&id=489

There were 39 Enlistees but I think only 7 finished. You were allowed to use your own imagination as to what you wanted depicted. My entry was a freshly built Tamiya 250

I do like the idea of using an old model to get destroyed, I'm sur we all have something sitting around that should be destroyed anyway.
I like the idea and the 2nd half of the year fits good as well, so I could be up for this

Sounds cool Clayton. I see this may require additional time compared to building a kit and adding AM stuff. Maybe put it up for a 9-month completion time? Cheers, Tat

Glad someone has suggested this!! Well done. I wonder when the model companies will offer a box of tank engines, turrent parts, guns, seats, melted bogie wheels etc etc. With the number of knocked out Russian tanks from all periods that would be a great start. (No anti-Russian bias here)

Yes, Tat and Dustin, this is definitely a "longer term" Campaign, we could stretch it to a year if the Powers allow it!

Hello Clayton,

I was building a burnt Panther for a campaign several years back. Below shows how far I got with it:



If this is acceptable, then I'll put it in as my entry.

Cheers,

Tat

Yes, that works, any previously built kit will work, just do what Tat did, and provide a "Before" picture! One more and I can make the formal proposal!

I'd be in.

I did an Iraqi wreck for part of a Gulf War Group Build over on ModelWorx. I took a Trumpy T55...converted it to a T59/69i (the parts are basically included)...then damaged it (roasted wheels, impacts, burnt skirt sections, etc.). It was a fun build and I'd be interested in trying it again.
