× 2018 is the Centenary of the formation of the Royal Air Force on the 1st of April, 1918. The build will run until February 1st 2019 and is open to any scale and any subject that represented the RAF, including aircraft, ground vehicles and equipment, or RAF personnel.
Ideally the model must be built in its entirety within the specified build dates and the build, but kits that have been part started can be entered at the discretion of the group build leader.
The build should be accompanied by a thread in the group build forum documenting regular progress. Post shots of your sprues or the current state of the build 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 always welcome.
Entrants who complete a build, post their completed pictures and reside in New Zealand will enter a draw to win a prize (Prize to be advised; one draw entry per person; entrant must reside in New Zealand to qualify for entrance in to the prize draw).

Hi all
Been a while since I have updated this. Progress slow. Managed to get some sub assembly work done. All the bits are not yet glued.
Cockpit all finished except pilots and a few decals to apply, then I can join her all up. Not going to display .303s in the nose, just
Bombay doors open and crew door open. I made a stencil for the exhaust stains, copied from a printed picture that came out at
1/48 when I printed it(luck more than anything) Used Matt black and Tamiya smoke for effect.
Hope to get finished before deadline.
Cheers,
Richard.

Hi all, managed to get some bits glued together and painted. All glossed up now for decals tomorrow.


The end is near!
Cheers,

Thanks Maarten and Ian. Decals have gone on today reasonably hassle free. Hopefully she'll be all decaled up tomorrow
And I can start to weather. Gloss coat is Tamiya TS 13 clear straight from the can.
More soon..... I hope!

99% done, just need to add wing tip lights and identification lights. Maybe some little scratches here and there too.


Hopefully all wraped up tomorrow.
Cheers,
Richard.

Nice looking Mossie. A nice balance between colours and panel lines.
