× 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

Hi,

I’d like to take part and am planning to build the 1/48 Tamiya kit of the F-117A Nighthawk.

I’m planning on an aircraft of the 37TFW 416 TFS
There’s is a good history of the F-117 in Iraq at the following link.

The Tamiya kit looks to be pretty good. I have one on the way via Seal Model in HK..

Cheers

John

I have the tamiya kit and it looks great, goes together really well from what I have read, the challenge is getting the black scheme looking good

In the ongoing battle between aluminium tubes going hundreds of miles per hour and the earth going zero, the earth is yet to loose

Right the Kit arrived from Seal Model.

I also got the Tamiya ANG boxing of the F-16 that looks to be a great kit.

I need to finish off 2 things on the Bench and then we’re into this... It’s surprisingly Large...
