Re: Entries and Group Build Questions

My Entry for the GB will be the Revell F/A 18-E Super Hornet. I will be using Aftermarket Decals as well as photo etch for the cockpit. I may get more Aftermarket stuff for it but not sure yet. :) Will be finalized when the GB starts.

Re: Entries and Group Build Questions

Interesting, I didnt realize this was coming up. I have an F-14A entered in the ARC Operation Desert Storm GB, starting August 2nd. Not sure if I can wait another 2 weeks to start this one or not. Id liek to partake in this one, I wil decide later on what to build. I have the same kit in the stash DK, oplus I have some Aeromaster decals for for VFA-115 "Screaming Eagles" on board the Lincoln, they flew the first combat sorties ever for the Super Hornet on the opening night of OIF.

ps: Would "Cold War" or "War on Terror" subjects count?

Haha, yeh we've been waiting for the Spring Contest and the BoB GB to wind down before starting new GBs. There is more than a month to decide what ya wanna do and it's a 8 month GB so there's lots of time depending on how fast you build stuff. :)

OOO, the Screaming Eagles! That's cool. My decals will be for the VFA-27 "Royal Maces". Thinking of doing CAG markings for it. That would be neat to do the same model with someone else if you enter that. :)

Yup on the War on Terror. Since the Cold War lasted over a period of lots of conflicts that covers the Korean War and after so let's say yes if it's something used after 1950 (I'll update the rules. I didn't think of that).

Re: Entries and Group Build Questions

Hmmm, that would give me an excuse to build up my Super Hornet. I may do that instead for this GB, and the Tomcat for the ARC DS GB. The decals I have are for the CAG jet also, circa December 2002. I have a few other possibilities as well, Revell 1/48 F-15E 391st TFS OEF, Hasegawa 1/48 F-15A Mass ANG WTC Scrambler, or maybe even some modern armor like a LAV-AT. Well, I do have a while to think about it at least.

Re: Entries and Group Build Questions

Think i may have a go at building a Hind for this as its one of those iconic cold war choppers .a friend at the wargaming club did have 3 really cool ones until the incident involving the boot of of his car a sharp corner and a large metal toolbox ,trust me it wasn't pretty :'(

So i may well build the Hind for him as he is also the bloke who gave me the great deal on all that WWII 1/72 scale armour i picked up .

Were you the one commenting on the Hind on my YT channel? Cause you got me into wanting to add one to my stash! lol

That would be great entry for this GB :)

Re: Entries and Group Build Questions

Tamiya M1046 Humvee. The Humvee will be constructed as a Marine weapons carrier. Marine humvees differed from the Army humvees with regard to their up armor add ons and a couple of other items.

Question, I won't be able to get my hands on the kit till after the "official" start date. Will that be ok?
