Next group build after "nightfighter" proposal(s).

Recommended Posts

My Vacuum formed kits always seem to be less than 25% done to me but it would be good to have a refresher from the referees.   Cutting out all the parts is about 0.25% of the work and then comes the corrections and scratch building.  Three simultaneous group builds of the same ac is unprecedented except for Bf-109s, Spitfires and the like.

So, it looks like we can lock this one in. Not only that, but Neil at HK Models has agreed to come on board as a sponsor for this Group Build, and will be offering the prize of a Lancaster kit to the builder of whichever finished entry he likes the most. That should be some incentive for you!

That's awesome! Thanks to Neil

I like the idea - and a bit of a celebration of how the Large Scale Planes market has grown hugely in recent years with some amazing mult-engine types kitted that we'd never have dreamed we'd see in a million years!

Iain: How is that kit you showed us at Telford last year coming along?  Bringing it again this year?  I can't remember which aircraft it was, only that it was the size of a small car. :-)

 

See you in a month!

I'm in, which I don't usually do the group builds as the timing never seems right.  I have the HK 335 and the Tamiya F-4EJ to choose from. I also have a 1/48 Monogram Catalina which is bigger than most 1/32 aircraft (just sayin'!) but I know doesn't qualify.  I have resin bits (intakes) for the F-4 and picked up the G-Factor landing gear for the 335 at Nats.  Now just need to decide what I need from Telford...  :hmmm:

 

I'm out most of Nov so starting in Dec or so saves me a month.

Chris, I believe Iain is taking a break from Telford this year.

oh man Brian, that would be cool!

 

 

Thanks Shawn, the desert camo Do-335 was not really in my upcoming mental build docket we all seem to have, but as we all know things can change in a heartbeat when we decide on what to build next!
