Rules of the Road

Recommended Posts

The theme of the GB is Russian aviation. It will run from April 16 to (Edit by LSP_Ron) December 15. Aircraft of any period in the scales of 1/35 or larger that fall within the following criteria:

 

- Aircraft Designed and manufactured in Russia in Russian livery.

- Russian Export: Aircraft designed and manufactured in Russia in foreign livery.

- Russian Import: Aircraft not designed or manufactured in Russia that wore/wear Russian livery (lend lease etc)

- Civilian and military content are acceptable

- "What ifs" do not qualify. The subject is required to have existed in reality.

- Started projects must be no less than 25% completed prior to the commencement of the group build.

 

Have fun guys!

I'm really surprised this is a "short" GB considering all the possible aircraft that are included! I was hoping for a year....Harv :unsure:

 

I think according to how I read it, this GB was designed to fill a normal 6 month slot ( as there are normally two 6 month GBs) and be the 2nd GB to the multi-wing GB, with Phantom Phevor being the 3rd "extended" GB that was not counted in the normal two GBs.

 

Please correct me if im wrong on that mods. :)

 

Cheers,

Brian

I'll take a shot at this one as I was about to start a new build of the Special Hobby P-39 with Zotz Russian decals that are coming.

So a P-39 it will be!

I better make a start as I do not build that quickly these days.I will post some pics as I go and I hope you guys can encourage me as I tend to slacken off and start on something else that screams to be built.

Cheers.

Yeah, Brian's pretty much got it. Six months is our standard GB length now, with 3 months being a 'short' one, and special jobbies maybe 12 months (or between 6 & 12 at any rate).

6 months then...This will be very close. I have a move coming up in a couple of months and I don't even have my wheel wells yet. I will try my best to finish this in time....Harv :unsure:

 

 

Sorry Harv, the intent of this one was to fill the last 6 month GB slot. I thought it was a great catagory with a lot of diverse candidates which in theory should allow for a large participate from members. I am sure just about all of us can find something in the stash that can qaulify without much more than perhaps a new set of AM decals. Time permitting, I might enter my PCM Spit.

 

At least the Phantom GM your participating in goes until the end of the year? :shrug:

A clarification, please - both for this GB and the site in general. Most European-published paper aircraft models are done to 1:33 scale. Is it safe to assume that this is acceptable as an LSP build on this site?

Yes!!!

Also, 1/35th scale is allowed, including several helicopters done in this scale, as well as Tristar's Feislers and L-4's and the V-1(not for this GB mind you, unless you can find some pics of them in Soviet colors).

Thanks for the quick answer, Ray. I am toying with the idea of Orel Publishing's "Ilya Muromets" - not committing to it yet but just giving it a look-see. Hmmm...that would get me double credit for this build and the Multi-wing GB, right?? LOL - just being silly.

I made the adjustment in the rules to show 1/35 or larger. I wrote them last night forgetting about 1/35 choppers etc that should apply

 

Cheers.
