Thanks for taking time to do a campign report Matthew. And again to Kevin for leading the second campaign. As always the nostalgia trip in doing these old kits prove to be quite enjoyable. Looking forward to the third! Cheers, Tat

Great feature Matthew, one correction though...I built the M-19 Tank Transporter....not the jeep/chevy. Again Brilliant Group build. Bill.

Great job on the resurrection of this campaign, Kevin, and excellent and effective Feature of it for posterity. Great builds by everyone that participated and it was nice to see builds that were missed in the first incarntation appear in it. I lament that I was unable to participate but my interest never waned and I checked the campaign pages regularly. Once again, great job everyone!

Cheers,
Jan

Apologies Bill, I have corrected it; what a very fine model that is too.

Great campaign. A cool trip down memory lane. Interesting to see that very cool models can be made from kits 30-40 years old.

Looking forward to another Matchbox campaign

A Fantastic fun campaign that I will proud to tell my grandchildren about,
how we , a small band of brothers fought against flash ridden parts joined to massive sprues ,battled flimsy decals and at time instructions that made no sense.
We my friends are the Victors

Pity I joined as a member so late; just discovered I had the Matchbox Hanomag 251 in the stash; maybe a third campaign will roll around soon.
