For an idea of what is eligible here is a good list, which will provide plenty of opportunities for a subject: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_military_operations
Note: even though some of those operations start before and/or finish after the above period, GB subject must have been deployed after start of August 1990 to be eligible, and it must be a combat zone where actual combat occurred, even if the subject did not actively participate i.e. patrol, recon, sentry, etc. If in doubt, check with the admins.
No part started kits, must be a new build. Please post a photo of the unstarted kit contents and a date reference as the first post in your build thread

For the Modern Combat GB ill be building a 1/35 UH60L Blackhawk.

This will be created as Super 68 (Razors Edge) which was the CSAR rescue bird in Operation Gothic Serpent, Somalia. The Helicopter was operated by the 160th SOAR and was involved in the battle of Mogadishu on October 3rd 1993 Somalia. (Black hawk Down).

Super68 sustained damage to the rotor system by an RPG during the engagement but was safely landed back at the aifield. It was repaired and put back into service. I believe it now resides at the Fort Rucker musuem.

Great, how does the Legend Productions minigun look, are you replacing a kit part or is there not one included?

I started building models, then I was collecting more than I built. Now I'm more of an archivist.

Hi Marcus, the legends gun is a bit more sharper on detail then the one in the kit, so im going to see how it goes together and maybe replace the kit one
