yeap, but don't get too excited it's not until 2018!! That said I've already started looking for extra AM bits.......nothing like preparation.......:D

 

Have got the Eduard Duel set so I guess I'll have to build two!

Looking at the 2017 GB calendar I am quite happy it will be not before 2018!

OK - be prepared for some racers then :-)

I'm definitely with you on that!!! Next year is already chock-a-block with GB's & STGB's and I haven't even thought about some of the "special projects" I have planned!

 

I do hope you bring along a racer or two, it's always nice to see them!

Hopefully my new model-making tactic will have paid off by the time this starts and I will not only start but actually complete a GB Entry. I'm thinking an RAF bird at the moment. But I'm fickle so that may change....:whistle:

you have plenty of time to practise your new tactics! I have the Eduard Duo set, but for some reason a 1/32nd beasty is calling me!!!

They're Crabs enough said. Likely better than trying them against the pesky Luftwaffe though. :o

I'll survive if they do, Eduard Duo set should be enough to keep me out of trouble.......or in it!

Now that you mention it (or rather, now that I see that you mention it), I was just GIVEN a barely started Special Hobby P-39!  This would be a good excuse to knock it about together.  I also have plenty of 1/48th ones, including P-63.  Which reminds me- I've been wanting to do the swept-wing L-39, too...  Heck, I even have a Heller 1/72 P-39 that would qualify.  Maybe I can do a "diminishing" group build!

or you could finish just one Bob!!! :D  You know you get carried away when you start these builds and it never ends well!! Chose one and don't get too carried away with it, my aim this year is to get you to get one in the gallery in time! I have encouragement! :whip: I've got a L-39, it's a nice model, if I have time I'll build that one as well.

Finnish, you say?  OH, finish... yeah, that's my goal too.  My L-39 (and I do mean the P-63 mod, in case anyone is confused) would be a conversion in 1/48.  But for a Group Build I think I'd really just do a P-39.

Yes I´m in! May I volunteer as a co-host too? I can personally buy and give a fresh copy of this Finnish comic book called Punainen Kobra (Krasnaja Kobra, Red Cobra) as a prize to the best build of this STGB. Regards, V-P

I´m sorry for quoting myself :innocent: I just bought a pair of these books as GB prizes. One is for the "best flown in Finland"- build in the Bf 109 STGB II. I then thought it´d be more appropriate to give the other one as a prize for the "best Soviet Airacobra"- build, if that´s ok for the rest of you? Best regards, V-P

I don't see why not, they certainly like flames in those comics!

I have just seen that Arsenal Model Group AMG have listed the P-63 Kingcobra in multiple scales as part of their forthcoming releases for 2017!

 

1/144th: P-63A, P-63C, P-63E-1

 

1/72nd: P-63A, P-63E-1, RP-63G Pinball

 

1/48th: P-63A, P-63C, P-63E-1, RP-63G

 

Hmmm I can see myself possibly building a Kingcobra now!
