With the great success of last years 80's NATO/WARPAC GB and the popularity of this years 70's version I was having a think about all the great subjects that were around in the 80's that fall outside of the geographic scope of the previous GB and some of the extremely popular subjects that would fall into it's remit, so here you have my proposal that we do for Asia what the 80's NATO/WARPAC one did for Europe. The geographical limits would be anywhere West of (but including) Pakistan up to and including Alaska and also taking in Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia. I would leave out the continental United States and Canada although units from them based in the theatre would be fine, such as US units in South Korea, Japan etc. As with the other GB's of this genre it is to be as open as possible in terms of subject matter but no Whifs, anything else that floats, flys, drives or walks will be included. So what do you think, anyone interested? Craig. The list so far; 1: me (obviously) 2: Red Dot 3: Wimbledon99 4: franky boy 5: helios16v 6: Cookenbacher 7: HansReggelson 8: Col 9: Covjets13 10.

So after having stepped away while real life took its toll, I decided to return with a relatively (I hope) easy build for this GB. As such I present Esci's Sea Harrier FRS.1. It took a bit of effort to Hun one down that wasn't going for silly money but in the end I was happy to get my mauly mitts on one. As you may be able to see, I decided to go with Sidewinders from the Airfix kit, purely because they have some detail on them, while the Esci ones are totally blank. I was also going to add a resin bang seat, but the one I had is too wide for the pit, so I stuck with the kit one instead. Progress so far shown below!
