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.

Less than 16 hours to run. Final squeeze, still a bit to go to pull it all together.

Got the final decals on last night.


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

I think we just need a completion photo and we can post the 5 tomorrow. Scroll up and let me know how you read it.

Complete chaos


Need to clean up. Let the heart rate come down and will post the five pics in the completion thread when there is better light in the morning.

No that I keep a count but this is my first finishfor the year.

If there is an ODS table at Armistice I will go back and attend to the items I scrimped on.

Cheers mate, had a peek at your HMMWV. Badass with that boom maker on the roof.

Off to the land of zzzzzz in a sec. Just finished cleaning out the gunked up airbrushes, just used them all evening with a blast of thinner between colours, didn't seem to mind it. Was just the sitting around while I went indoors after posting. Pigsty in the shed though, ahhh, mon jana.

That is totally awesome! Good work dude.

On a side note, I think a ODS section at Cambridge would be awesome
