Welcome to the Double Trouble! Group Build. The theme for this Group Build is any LSP-class aircraft or helicopter that features twin engines, seats or tail planes. Wings don't count! We've decided that twin floats are in however. Other options are subject to negotiation and approval.

 

The Group Build will run for 6 months, finishing on 28 February 2015.

 

So, who's first?

I'm thinking that a Mitchell is doable. Australian version in all natural metal... Not experienced at all with natural metal finishes but it's about time I started and finished one.

I am in.....the toss up of either one of the following

1) p-38 - learning on how to get the right bird
2) Meteor - waiting to get that wonderful conversation set
3) mig 29 - waiting to source a decent cockpit
4) f-18D - trying to motivate myself as the scheme I plan is just one colour

I'll firm up soon once the Flying Tiger is done a quick 1/48 and then onto one of these .....above

I'm in with the IL-2M3 (two seats). Tentatively going with this scheme, as I have the mask set for it (but research on the IL-2 is about to drive me nuts, so I could end up changing my mind on its final colors!).

I'm in with the somewhat problematic Academy 1/35 AH-60L DAP Blackhawk. I'll be adding the Eduard Interior, Exterior, and Dashboard photo-etch, Cobra Company Correction/Detail sets for the UH-60L. I do have Werner's Wings decals for the 160th SOAR "Nightstalkers," but I feel like everybody who builds a Blackhawk builds a Nightstalker, so I may just build a generic UH-60L (I really don't like the pylons on the side, but do like the refueling probe). Here is what we're working with:

I do, however, have to get this strange looking thing off the bench first. . .

Do a Mongolian one.

Any references for that, or are you suggesting I go with something that's less likely to be criticized, due to lack of documentation? ^_^  At this point, I'm giving that some thought, too. This seems to be a subject that even a lot of "experts" can't agree on and I have my own opinions, too. :hmmm:

Me with a Focke Wulf 44. I want civilian colors, but research will be done...
imagejpg1_zpsd7fca388.jpg

A word of warning, though. I am VERy invested in Paul's build with real commitments there. As in others depending on me. Plus more than a few Vets who want to see the finished article.

So it'll be awhile for me to start my build thread... Or start cutting resin.
This is a fairly fast and easy building kit, and that is why I chose it instead of the Bf-110.
Plus, it's seriously cute, and after doing a Raider and a Hun, cuteness will be good for a change...
