Hi everyone.

Just waiting for admin to set up the campaign.

Darren Baker (CMOT) kindly set up the new Bundeswehr and Shep Paine ones for 2020 in Jon P's absence and I'm sure this one will get set up soon

How about an AFV USAF M1130 TACP Stryker in slat armor stationed in Iraq?

TACP is a control and liaison communication vehicle between army and airforce, so well within the parameters. Welcome aboard

Looking forward to it,Peter!

I'm soon about to run out of campaign participations, so 20/20 will come very handy

I have the Bronco German Telemeter KDO Mod.40 w/Sd. Anh 52 Trailer kit, would that be allowed as a gun director?

Thinking of a paired Sd. Kfz. 232 and 263 (both Tamiya) somewhere in North Africa, inspired by Shepherd Paine's Monogram diorama:

Mark and Abe. Sound like great builds. I am looking forward to seeing them.

Guys I have submitted a second campaign proposal as the first seems to have been blackholed....

I think I will make a M1127 RV instead of the Panther CLV, depending the time frame.

My stash still needs something for this one.... I'll have to perv on Ebay. I don't even have any reconnaissance aircraft.

Richard, if that is the radar equipped Fire control vehicle version, that is fine for the build.

Gaz, Lots of options out there, so I'm sure you will find something.

I'm thinking of doing a M981 FIST using the old Tamiya M113 and Verlinden conversion set that has been mouldering in the stash....

since then, Academy made one all in one box.... usual story...

Considering either my Kleiner Befehlswagen I Ausf B, Leichte (Funk) Pzkpfw I, or one of my several Panzerbeobachtungswagens.

Yeah, I picked up both the fire control version and the launcher version a year or two ago.

I am trying to decide between the following:

Dragon 6792 PzBeobWg III Ausf F
Dragon 6591 Leichte (Funk) PzKpfw I Ausf A
Dragon 6813 PzBeobWg V Panther Ausf D early production
Bronco 35051 Adler Kfz 14 radio car

6792 and 6591 include interiors, but I don't plan to display them open as yet; that may change. I like to have figures if I open a vehicle so who knows?

Looks like you need a 4 sided coin Shell...

Still waiting on Admin setting this up. The second request sent is still unanswered.

I think the Admin forgot about this one. Maybe it needs to be in the Campaigns Forum and not in the armor/afv forum. Just guessin!

Anyway...my choice arrived:


Opened the box... it's pretty large! But has rubber wheels.

You should have two sets of rubber wheels...… I have that one.



I have sent 2 separate campaign requests and several PM's to two admin staff and no joy. Seems like setting up group builds may not be an option anymore...

Mine got submitted and approved after this one was submitted. Could be that John is on holiday or something. Haven't seen anything from him, lately.

Schwalbe II is for aircraft and was set up via Aeroscale not Armorama Gaz.

John Pereira has not visited the forums since 13 July. Admin does not know where he is or have been able to reach him. We just hope he is alright.


Darren Baker set up the Bundeswehr build for me, and also the Shep Paine build proposal that was submitted by someone else, but he has not yet set up 20/20 in 2020.

Maybe I should submit a 2020 proposal via Aeroscale as it is open to aircraft too.....
