Proposal for a Night Fighters Group Build.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

This idea has been floating around for a while, there has been several new releases in recent times for night fighters (Revell 262 and Fw 190, Heinkel 219 etc) and the AIMS Bf 110G-4 conversion, I think there's enough kits to run this, but it is a little more confined than the usual GB topic.

 

Excluding conversion sets, I've put together a list of easy night fighter kits to find. I'd also be willing to expand a little more to include strike aircraft that specifically operated at night, such as the F-117, Heinkel 111's and Mosquito's with black under surfaces and NJG Ju 87D's, if someone want's to build one of those.

 

Night Fighters OOB.

Hasegawa Bf 109G-10 NJG 11 
Hasegawa Fw 190A-4 nacht jabo-rei
 
I'd like at least 12 participants, so can I ask that if you respond in the affirmative, that you be 100% sure you will participate and mention what kit you will build. I'll leave this up for a couple of weeks and if this doesn't get enough interest, then I have a few other ideas in the bank.

Yes, oh yes! I'd be in for either a Bf110G-4 (the AIMS conversion of course) and/or the Tamiya Mosquito finished as a Mk II NF. Can we have something like a 6 month build window please Brad?

I'm interested, I have just begun cutting plastic and resin on the Aims Bf 110g conversion...only the pilot seat glued, is it still eligible to join in?

I've been thinking about doing a Ju 88C-2 or the old Revell 110G-4 or maybe even a 109G-6 from JG 300.  I'm not real good at building on timelines so at this point I'm a definite maybe.

Make it night fighter/bomber. I have a Hellcat and an unarmed Mossie I can build.

 

Which would add Gothas from WW1
