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).
Thank you everybody for your comments, I've not been doing this very long. This is the result of a lot of fiddling around frequently getting things wrong, I am slowly learning some things....cheers, Nick.
Hi all, here is a little more progress...in the undercarriage areas, hydraulic rams and lines attached. This is my first go at detailing things....just as well I went to Specsavers and can finally see what I'm doing .......
Good morning all, my Typhoon is finished, but I'm working on a diorama to display it better.....Master Box figures and RAF power carts I found after a quick internet search....these are very fiddly to assemble... All this rain we are having seems to slow down drying of paint and things...
It comes to life a bit with figures....
Have a good Christmas everyone. Cheers Nick.
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.
