That IT-1 is right on the borderline, I'm loving that thing, it's definitely a prototype that failed the test...I would say that it is significantly different from the original tank....I feel a 10 coming in here......


Actually, I believe it went into service in a limited numbers, So, not fully failed, but I imagine that the development of through-the-bore ATGMs really killed it's chances of anything beyond being rebuilt into recovery vehicles.
I certainly like how it looks, there's a reason I've been wanting to build it!

And I'm willing to join too, still, as the IT-1 is fine.
Really need an excuse to build it, lol. Not sure if you counted me on that due to my lack of a response, didnt have much of a chance to log in lately!

Would truck mounted artillery count?

Well, we're looking for unusual stuff, so if you have a photo of it, and it's "off the wall" ingenuity, sure...

Okay then, I'll ask the odd question Civilian vehicles with improvised armour etc.etc. (thinking civil war zones) -
verdict Yes or No ?:
Photograph evidence:

Yes, I would agree those are improvised, if not ingenious, lol...I think this campaign will be great for some "outside of the box" thinking, which may include some scratchbuilding....we have plenty of time, so let's go crazy! I know I'm planning to...;-)

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

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

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











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

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

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

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

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!!

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...

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 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.
