This group build is to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain. It will run from 10th of July to 31st of October, 2015, following the dates of the battle.
The build is open to any scale and any subject that played a role in the Battle of Britain. While the Battle of Britain is foremost remembered as an air battle, builds including figures (e.g. famous historical figures from the battle), vehicles and armour (e.g. AA guns) and dioramas (e.g. airfield dioramas) are eligible provided a documented link can be established.
The model must be built entirely within the build dates to qualify, and the build should be accompanied by a thread in the group build forum documenting regular progress. Post your sprues at the beginning of the thread! By the end of the group build (and no later than 24 hours after the completion date) participants should post five pictures of the completed build in the group build forum which will be organised shortly.
To discourage cynical entries the build is open only to those who have been members of KiwiModeller for two months at the start of the group build and with at least thirty posts in the forums. So lurkers, get posting now if you want to enter! I will also vet for cynical or “gaming” entries and vote rigging.
No entry fee will be charged, but this is a good opportunity to make a donation to the upkeep of KiwiModeller.
The winner of the group build will be decided by popular vote. Voting will run for the week following the 1st of November, ending Midday the 8th of November. A deadlock will be decided by a separate run-off vote.
BoB entry - K2's BF 110C Eduard 1/48 **!!FINISHED!!**
Pretty basic, here is my entry for the group build, it arrived over from BNA in about a week, which is pretty good! Colours are yet to come for it, but I have uber amounts of PE, and a really great kit Also comes with masks, which I haven't used before
Update In Stash:
Lots of 1/35 Armor mainly WWII German and a few Modern British/American pieces, 1/32 Aircraft and 1/48 Aircraft. Aircraft chosen to replicate RNZAF and RAAF types through the years. Some RAF & USAF types exist also.
Yeah the pedals were a bit of a pain, trying to get the bend right, and not break the pieces off (one of the straps did actually break off, but some Kristal Clear worked a treat.
Some work on it last night... these tiny little bits of PE are awesome detail, but headache to work with. The levers actually have the 'knob' on the end folded over as well. I have another 4 to put on, and another piece of PE... So should have that part done tonight, and hopefully the main console.
Okies, finally back at the modelling table since Wednesday. got a lot of the main cockpit done, and feeling pretty happy about it. both side control panels are done, but one is yet to be glued on (have to paint those tiny levers).
Bit of wash inside, to give it a bit of a dirty worn look, belts attached to the seat as well (that was a bit of a mission!)
