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).
I'm staying with Mike next week and can grab a set if you want them.
Hey they look nice! yes please i have some PE ones that came in the exterior set but the look like they won't fit in fact some of the shuff doesn't fit that well at all (and its for the revell kit) like the extra pylons too
Bit more work on this got all the bits sanded down and a test coat of primer on, also decided to liven up that rear cockpit wall,...the cockpit id choka with parts but that bit is left blank!, so checked a few photos of the cockpit and saw it had a few conduits running behind the seat and some quilting do i bodged a few things up using metal tape.
Nearly put the canopy on before doing the cockpit photo so forgive the glue in the shots and terrible pics, i was on a roll (the glue is a ]mixture of plastic glue and PVA for sealing and adhesive)
