Operation Desert Storm 25th Anniversary

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.

Cheers all. I added the concrete pad with more plaster. This is sitting in the garage drying and waiting for some colour.

Thanks all. I'm not sure I'd say this was a fun build given all the hiccups, but it's nice to have a Desert Storm Tornado done. Now I'm thinking about what next. I have the Trumpeter A-10 actually started, but that looks like a slog. So instead I just ordered the Aires detail sets for the Revell 1/32 He 162 and Italeri F 104-G, so I guess one of these. Both are pretty appealing and neither has a huge amount of parts.
