I have had a thought for the new year, and for a campaign idea, that I have not seen, or at least it has been a while: Resin. The thought would be to build a resin kit or resin conversion that would replace a good chunk of the kit.

I will have to look for a start date, probably make the campaign about a year, but could be lots of fun.

Any takers?

Yep count me in while I have the armour bug.

I'll go for the Panzershop VT-72B conversion on the Tamiya T-72 kit

You could twist my arm if it has a mid-spring start date...never built a resin kit but maybe it's time

Based on the current ongoing and planned campaigns, I am thinking a March/April start time. But then again, I will probably be in a rush to finish something for AMPS nationals, so a May 1 start date sounds good. That way, maybe can have something ready for Armorcon in September....

So this will be an all resin kit or just a AM resin part will be allowed ?

Both, choice would be either a full resin kit or a resin conversion that would replace a good chunk of the plastic kit.

A resin dozer blade or a Mine roller conversion would be ok but not a resin cable hooks or oil drums ?

I would think I would be looking for more then just a dozer blade or mine roller. If you look at the post above by Littorio, a large portion of the plastic kit is being replaced. I am thinking, that in a tank conversion, the entire upper or lower hull is replaced, or for a truck the entire cab is replaced.

So far it seems we only have about 5 interested, so given so more time, and I am open to opinions we will see what the final rules for the campaign look like.

I might bite the bullet and build my first resin (conversion) kit. Are 1/72 kits OK as they are smaller in size? If so, count me in!

Any scale will be acceptable.

I'd be keen. Just finishing off a T90A 1/50th wargaming resin kit conversion (pic below). So as long as that sort of thing is good enough I'd be in, probably with either a T90MS or BMP-T conversion ...

cheers

Looks like we have 12 takers now, I believe that makes it official.

John - Can we please register this campaign for a April 1 start, lasting one year.

Description: To build or convert a model using resin. A conversion would be replacement of a major component of the vehicle, ie turret, upper hull. This does exclude just the minor addition of say a plow, etc. If unsure, please contact the campaign leader. The campaign is open to any scale.
