Ladies and Gentlemen,
logistics are essential to keep our lives on track. For almost every action in our lives there is long chain of supply that keeps us mobile, fed, clothed, and/or armed. Take away transport and logistics from our lives and we would be back in the middle ages in about no time!

Here is the campaign that centers on all aspects of transport and logistics both civil and military:
It can be figures carrying boxes or dragging carts. Disptach riders or Wells Fargo coaches. Trucks, personnel carries, cargo ships and transports, tenders, oilers, troop ships. Transport planes of every type and even the space shuttle would apply.

Chime in, if you want to bring that transport related kit, that certainly rests at the bottom of your stash, to honours.
If you want to join, please let us know here!

Cheers,
Guido

I posted this over on AutoModeler, but since I'm not sure where the main Campaign will be run, I'll post this here, too.

Sounds interesting! I think this will be a very diverse Campaign; especially if you can ge the Armorama & ModelGeek guys involved, too. What time line are we loking at?

Hi, Jim!
As I want truck guys and heavy transports (Wenthworth Haulers, Faun transports, Dragon Wagons, etc.) to join in, I think that no less than a year will do. So the campaign should rum from June-July 2012 to May-June 2013.
Thanks for your support!
Guido

Yeah, with such a broad topic, you almost can't help build something that qualifies! I like the mid-year start, because I've overbooked (maybe, unless I build really quick!) for the next 12 months, but I like this topic!
To throw out some ideas (and show my stuff ), here are a few I've built in the past year or two...

Then coming up, I've got an Avenger Carrier Onboard Delivery aircraft for Aeroscale Support Aircraft campaign, and for Aeroscale Hangar Queen 2 I'll be finishing a Monogram C-47, so this proposed campaign is right up my alley.
Thanks!

Did you post this over on ModelGeek? I'm sure someone somewhere can come up with a Star Trek Ptolemy class tug, or a space freighter.

Love the theme of this build and the time frame works for me. If it gets approved, I'm in.

Thanks! Until now there is little feedback unfortunately. Lets see what the next 2-3 days bring.
Cheers,

I am certainly interested if all scales apply. I have a 1/700 C-130 around here somewhere and I might be interested in getting a 1/144 transport plane and building it if I can find a shelf with enough open space to fit it.

So I'm in.
