17 days to kick-off, I'm getting a de-javu feeling, like just before the World Cup
How many starters have we got for this one?

I've got my kit ready for this build, it wasn't my first idea but when the opportunity arose it jumped to the top of the pile. I'll wait till the start of the build to reveal however if anyone has any 1/48 agm65 mavericks they would be keen to part with it would be much appreciated, i can swap for other weapons. Thanks.

That would be awesome thanks Clinton. Plus you are only just down the road. Flick me a PM and we'll sort something out.

Quick question McCoy, Would something that is in service with the RAN but not with the RNZN be acceptable to be done as a RNZN bird? My kit in question, the Aussies have but us poor kiwi's don't but should have.
Thanks.

Not so quick answer as I've been elsewhere for some days...

Service with RAN won't disqualify is as a WHIF RNZN bird so please go ahead.

Yeah, I'm still deciding whether to buy something, or try to find something suitable from the stash :whistle:

Sheesshh. . some people.

Turns out I've been cleaning up an old ESCI 1/72nd F-16A/C, as a matter of fact.

Pretty much got the rough Euro 1 down, now comes the touch-up.
Used Blutac all over the poor girl, and now it's discoloured the grey a little.
Shall have to rectify it later.

Pics to follow . . .

I see the "deadline" is past for this build.
I'm working on something at the moment :shhh: , and plan to post the build here.
Is anyone else working on ANZAC "what if" projects - if so shall we open the cut off date up a bit or just leave it open as a place where we park up or ANZAC WHAT IF builds?

Since the speed that I build at could best be described as "Glacial" I'm all for leaving it open indefinately... See what others reckon though....

Yeah, I think most of the group builds would be best left open :whistle: :lol:
