Utilizing references concerning the battles in the Pacific select any of the vehicles, (Land, Air or Sea) used by either the Axis or Allied forces and construct a model concerning the specific use of that vehicle.
The area of interest covers the entire battle in the Pacific area, from New Zealand and Australia, through Indonesia, to India, through China, up to Korea and Manchuria, over to the Aleutian Islands, to the Hawaiian Islands, and back down to New Zealand and includes everything in between.
Research is half the modeling experience and some very interesting information can be found.
The main purpose of this campaign is to dig out the books and do research in the hopes of “producing a high-level of educational value to the build process” I copied that from the campaign page. Questions concerning the reference materials or specifics on the individual models are highly encouraged.
The Rules and Regs
Separate figures are acceptable, however 1/35 or smaller must be accompanied by a model or placed in a diorama. Dioramas are encouraged but not required (Exception to this is noted earlier). Finished model must be specifically identified by reference and reflect the approximate appearance as it was participating in that Battle. The reference used must be provided (Not the actual document just noted so that we may look it up if written and if by photo where we might view that photo) along with a minimum of 2 photos of the finished model to be awarded the campaign ribbon. The reference can be by written word, movie documentary or photo but must be applicable to the campaign. I would also like to include the requirement of posting in work photos. This way we also will be able to share modeling techniques and help someone who might be having a problem.
The predominant yellow in the background represents the sands of the islands in the Pacific, where many of the major engagements were fought; the blue, white and red pinstripes represent the national colors. The white-red-white stripes are the colors of the empire of Japan and represent the enemy in the Pacific during the Second World War.
