Conflict: Vietnam – Kiwimodeller.com Indochina/Vietnam Wars GB
The Indochina Wars were a series of wars fought in Southeast Asia from 1946 until 1989, between communist Indochinese forces against mainly French, South Vietnamese, American, Cambodian, Laotian and Chinese forces. The term "Indochina" originally referred to French Indochina, which included the current states of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.
The focus of our GB will be the first and second Indochina Wars.
The GB will be launched on 1st November 2016, and run until 1st November 2017.
The build is open to any scale and any subject that played a role in the First and Second Indochina Wars.
The model must be built in its entirety within the specified build dates and the build should be accompanied by a thread in the group build forum documenting regular progress. Post shots of your sprues at the beginning of your thread.
By the end of the GB (and no later than 24 hours after the completion date) participants should post five pictures of the completed build in the GB completed builds thread. There is no entry fee for the GB, but a donation for the upkeep of Kiwimodeller is welcome The winner of the group build will be decided by popular vote.
Voting will run for the week following the 1st of November 2016, ending Midday the 8th of November 2017. A deadlock will be decided by a separate run-off vote.

Moderators will be Andrew, Ian and John

The newish kit from Kittyhawk. I'll build it when I manage to find time between all the other things I'm doing. Pics to come!

Hehe, the kit is here. Very attractive package I must say. I just had a quick browse and there is a lot of nice looking plastic in the box. Never built a Kittyhawk kit before, but apparently the fit on this one is pretty good. Decals are on the way from Hannants because the box options are apparently warbirds.



Looking forward to this! :woohoo:

Yep that was one of the 'gripes' when the kit came out last year... decal options are all civil warbirds. Think it's AoA decals that does three or four sheets for various Vietnam era machines. And yes I'm looking forward to this build aswell.

Hey, I started this finally. The kit is very interesting, with some awesome parts and some not so awesome parts. This is going to be a very beat up bird. Hence, a very beat up cockpit:



Nice engine detail, which I'll try to display:

I'm really not having too much fun with this kit so I might put it down. Not sure why but I just can't settle into any project recently. Maybe it is the dreaded loss of mojo.

All good things take time.
Could also put it down to winter weather, seasons can play a part in mood/mojo.

I know how you feel Grant. I think recently there was a period of 2 months where I didn't even touch a kit. Made a start on the AFV Club Bussing Nag, but struggled to get excited about it... started on the Tamiya Corsair... and mojo issue sorted.
