January 17th 2016 will mark 25 years since the US-led Coalition began airstrikes in a prelude to boots on the ground to force the withdrawal of Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi forces from Kuwait. To mark the 25th Anniversary, we will be commencing a Kiwimodeller Group Build, beginning January 17th 2016, and finishing on the 15th of July 2016.
The build is open to any scale and any subject that played a role in Operation Desert Storm. This includes Iraqi forces. 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 15th of July, ending Midday the 22nd of July. A deadlock will be decided by a separate run-off vote.
Oooh yeah, I know what you mean about wanting to start something new... hence why I'm trying my best to get through this Mad Max build rather quickly, but still pull out a good model... but looking forward to next project for sure (Phantom I think )
Nice and big - your style! This Phantom is going to be for another GB in another FB group I have been a part of for a while, and admin... but have only been building GB's for this forum lol. 1/48 Hasegawa Phantom, should be interesting, Hellenic version.
Anyways, will stop thread hi-jacking. Looking great dude, really is
I had hoped to finish it this weekend, but this is where I got too. I just need to paint the seats, attach a few parts and then do the thrust reverse weathering. Hopefully I can get that done this week after work.
And then I'll work on the base. Rather than a bit of runway I wanted a background for photography, so I'm making a sort of bunker inspired by this:
This is awesome!!! Fabulous work.
Watching with interest ...
My preference - WW2 RNZAF & Pacific Theatre, Allied & Axis, ETO, Mediterranean, AFV & figures
I enjoy doing research
