Welcome to the Foreign or Captured Group Build.

 

The Group Build will run from 1 Dec 2013 until 1 June 2014.

 

Any LSP-class kit (1/35+) of any aircraft will qualify. The subject must be finished in markings other than that of the country that designed the airframe. As the name implies, these can be export users, or captured machines. Edge cases subject to negotiation!

 

As with all LSP group builds the kit must be less than 25% finished if already started.

 

The moderators for this GB will be Brian and Lou, with assistance from the LSP staff.

 

Don't forget to check out the GB Gallery once the builds start coming to fruition!

 

Kev and the LSP Staff

Then I guess an Avia version of the Me262 would fit in this GB.

Yep, even though technically they were of Czech manufacture, they were still of German design and origin. Looking to another one myself some day!

A great idea.  I've been thinking about a GB along similar lines for a long time.  One thing I've always wondered about is how to handle the second gen Harriers.  I've always taken the first gen Harrier to be British, but the second gen Harriers (II, NA, Plus, GR.5/7/9) are a bit more fuzzy on the origin country.  The II, NA, Plus seemed to be American, but the GR. series always seemed British to me.

Yeah, I reckon we'll have to stick to actual stuff here unfortunately.

British Dave.

 

Some parts of the second generation may have been American but the Harrier is British. Just the same as the F-4 Phantom is American even though some versions were designed for the British.

 

Cheers.

Would my Polish F-16 meet the "less than 25%" criteria? Cockpit is about done and I'm working on the main gear bay now...still a long way to go before paint becomes an option...

I reckon so. Would you like me to move it?

I think one of my old kits fits the bill, but it's the 25% in torn on. Personally I believe it's less. The wings and tails are together along with a couple of other bits and some parts have paint. Major parts but few in number and I believe it's construction isn't that far along.

 

What do you think? I take an age to do anything on models anyhow, and this would give me a little head start, lol.

I'd say it sounds close enough. The rule isn't hard and fast, more just to prevent folks from entering nearly completed models, and keep things within the spirit of a group build.
