Perhaps of some interest is that the 'Tigermeet' groupbuild has been waiting patiently since the success's and friendships of LSP'ers at the 2006 Bodensee show.

Given the history and unique situation with the Tigermeet groupbuild we're squeezing this one in. LSP has planned on running four dedicated groupbuilds a year in our 'groupbuild forum'. The theme for the regular quarterly group build will be determined by a poll open to all registered members. The largest number of votes gets the nod
However, for the moment and until the next quarterly groupbuild theme has been chosen, the Tigermeet build will start off in this groupbuild subforum using the special title as detailed below. We'll have two group builds running simultaneously, although the Tigermeet one will run most of the year.
Our aim is to have as many as possible LSP'ers or guests join up and build a Tigermeet aircraft or helo in this special forum starting from right now....BUT...ALSO...to have as many as possible LSP'ers present their wonderful Tigermeet birds at a special LSP gathering at the Bodensee Model Show 1-4Nov2007. At Bodensee 2007 LSP'ers can gather to have a great time together and represent LSP as an awesome online modelling club for enthusiasts all over the world.
No matter what your skill level please post progress pictures of your 1/35 or larger Aircraft ( incl Helo's) using the special title LSP TIGERMEET GB on the top line. On the bottom line of the title you need the scale and name of your model.
You can start now and build as many as you like. For those planning on exhibiting either in the flesh or digitally at the Bodensee Show it would be ideal to present your model on a base with at least one picture of the original aircraft, a little information on the date and where the Tigermeet event took place. Finish date 30October2007. The rules for this build are very flexible and create lots of opportunities for people to go nuts on detail or build as simply as they want. I don't forsee any special kind of interventions or specific questions to the LSP staff being forthcoming.
The main point of contact for all the LSP'ers gathering at the Bodensee Show 2007 will be Chris Novak ( Chris-Germany)!!! There is a pinned thread in the groupbuild subforum that you can post to in order to assist with any travel, accomodation, social arrangements. Give Chris time to post some info into that thread so that he isn't inundated with PM's and emails before he is ready with any facts.
The aircraft ( incl Helo's) can be in any medium you like. ( Injected, Vac, Balsa). Don't get too worried if you don't have the exact type of that aircraft . You can do conversions if you like but we're not making the rules so stringent on the exact type...it just needs to be painted representing an aircraft that appeared at a Tigermeet. You can build your kit/s with resin upgrades or conversions, add PE, make scratch built details, rip it open, whatever you like...even OOB if you prefer. Here's a basic list of kits that might be suitable for you but others will know more I'm sure.
- F15 Eagle
- F16 Falcon
- F18 Hornet
- Hind Mi24
Right here...thanks Ripper
Or go here and follow their other very useful links
So feel free to go for it or ask any questions in this thread.
Edit...funny but I would have almost thought the bold text saying post them in the 'group build sub-forum' for the time being might have been a dead give-away. Rather than do anything other than poke fun at my mates for not reading the text I edited it lest you all be called gumbies. We'll get the other subforum up and running soon I hope and I'll transfer them across.
