  1. These Monogram NASCAR kits are great builds, not at all intimidating! I have one on my shelf of shame...
  2. 10 years as a Britmodeller member today :yahoo:. My performance is surprisingly low, though, less than 1,5 posts a day :giggle:. Thank you all for great companionship! Regards, V-P

  3. Not just good, but great news I believe I'll get to host two STGB:s next year, thank you, and of very different military aircraft they'll be - the beautiful Draken and the mighty Flying Fortress . V-P
  4. Sorted! Just by pure luck you got the Union Jack - or was it luck or careful timing . The forum software doesn't know the flag of NATO, I tried to add that first Welcome! V-P
  5. Achtung @Enzo Matrix we now have a co-host for this one as @Marklo has just been added to the staff . V-P
  6. The idea of a host/co-host needing to be an expert on the subject of the GB, well...
  7. The Ju 88 FTGB has so far not had a co-host. You're in there as a builder already, care to notch up to hosting duties too? I may not be the most typical host, and far from the best tutor... but the job is there for you to grab if you like it. V-P
  8. Welcome and no worries Steve, still plenty of time before the take-off! I'm sure you wrote that "either-or" accidentally instead of "and" . V-P
  9. Welcome! You got the flag of the Netherlands but as said earlier, they are there just to add colour . V-P
  10. ...Just like the groups of Flying Fortresses grinding forward on those unescorted deep penetration raids to Reich airspace in 1943; imagine all that Jagdwaffe in the air, more and more Staffeln circling the bomber formations to gain altitude and then relentlessly attacking head on from twelve o'clock high... Oh, didn't anyone mention there's a B-17 STGB in the Bunfight
  11. Oh, November is near again! Let there be blood
  12. If you accept the later Marauder variants too, I'm interested... because there's a void in good short wing B-26 kits. V-P
  13. My kit comes from this delicious Revell set https://www.scalemates.com/kits/revell-05794-us-legends-8th-air-force--237850
  14. Damn, Rich, I'm glad to add you to the list, but the pre-membership machinery from any nation is not eligible... but check the "Neutrality etc GB" proposal, there a splintered Viggen would fit like a Volv... glove!
  15. I think I remember a Britmodeller member building the Lion, using some Ford Focus orange metallic rattle can paint. Check that out. Oh, I saw her perform in 2011. As stunning as in the ground show. V-P
  16. So, this ´71 kit comes with the Air Grabber hood seal and flap actuator for an oval, six-barrel air cleaner (in sprue pic 3, below the deck spoiler) but has a flat hood and a single four barrel with a round air cleaner. That underhood piece is something that I have been missing from the ´70 GTX/Road Runner kits that DO have the power bulge hood with Air Grabber and a six-barrel setup, but nothing to seal them together! V-P
  17. This would be sweet too: https://puolustusvoimat.fi/en/equipment#/asset/view/id/403 V-P
  18. Thanks Craig, I believe I'll have to try to find an ancient Esci Leopard I to base my build on. V-P
  19. All that Op. Market Garden GB chat got me thinking, which is rare but always frightening, that I might want to join the Leopard STGB with a "Panther"-Leo I from the "A Bridge Too Far". It shouldn't be too difficult, if it was not taken too seriously (me? serious?) So, please sign me in, Craig! V-P
  20. I can't comment any accuracy issues, but several builds of both the Airfix and ICM kits can be found here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/forum/761-dornier-do-17-family-stgb/
  21. https://sbsmodel.com/model/SBS-D72041/finnish-bombers-post-war-markings This is also a swastika-free option . V-P
  22. Never minding those bottles of Joe behind the burgers V-P
