it's supposed to read that it starts on the 1st of September 2018 and finishes on the 1st of September 2019.

it has something to do with the site software, i've run into this problem before with other peoples campaigns

I noticed the campaign isn't showing up on my "Current Campaigns" page. Looks like there could be a glitch somewhere.
Take care,

I think it only shows up when the campaign has been approved and at the moment it's at the proposal stage.

We need a minimum of ten people participating for it to be approved.

Have you thought of mentioning the campaign over on Historicus Forma,Other Genres forum? Might be some people who have some of the bandai stormtrooper kits that don't venture over to this part of the network.

i'll give that a shot, thanks for the suggestion.

i would like to add that we now have ten people enlisted which is the minimum number to host a campaign so i'm going to authorise it and make it official, once this is done you can still enlist.

many thanks to all those who have signed up so far!

Welcome aboard the build.

I think there are a few people who feel the same way about the "B Wing"

Just got this for Fathers' Day, just what I wanted, wonder how that happened?

I'll be ready for the start of this campaign.
Take care,

My workshop has been dismantled to move to a new house. May take a little time to get the new shop built, hope to finish the campaign on time still.

Workshop is a blank canvas, about 13 feet by 20 feet in a corner of a finished basement. 50% will be for a model building and airbrushing area, the other half will be for gunsmithing and knife handle making.

Am absolutely in awe of the 1/72 SW stuff coming from Bandai.

I wonder though does the B-wing come with LED's as the exhaust ports seem to be showing internal lights?

I hope Bandai release some of the more obscure SW vehicles in 1/72 in the future too! The ARC-170 Starfighter and ETA-2 Jedi Star fighter from Revenge of the Sith spring to mind, along with the Naboo star fighter and the Delta 7 Jedi fighter from Ep's 1 and 2!

Meanwhile do I pluck the courage to sign up for this campaign? So far me and campaigns don't get along too well

I don't quite think I've signed up for that many campaigns Casey, but then again, I've never finished one either
