  1. Does it make sense though? a) it states in the topic header, that this one is aiming for 2022, which means next years bunfight. b) we have the 'French fancy 2' GB proposal which will very much cover the subject. Does it make sense to compete here for votes? c) this years bunfight is very competitive, due to people spending more time on their hobby due to Corona I suspect. Don't get me wrong. I am all for this GB, but 2022 seems more appropriate than the already quite competitive '21 bunfight.
  2. I have a suggestion for the BAC, NAA, Republic etc. peoposals: Amalgamate them to a mega GB of "They don't build them anymore' featuring airplanes from companues which no longer exist or are no longer in the aircraft production business. How about that?
  3. I wonder if this GB could be expanded to Jet powered, nuclear, strategic bombers in general. There is a B-58 sitting on my stash longing to be build. And it would surely help in the bunfight as well...
  4. @Enzo Matrix Please add also my 'Intermarum' GB proposal to the list, as it reached 30 pledges last week.
  5. @Enzo Matrix We are 30! Therefore please add this GB proposal to the bunfight.
  6. I am torn regarding the Czech and Polish squadrons, as my intention was to showcase some of the more exotic european markings. The Lancer would be spot on though, since their uniforms where based on old polish uniforms from 1794 and therefore quite unique.
  7. Giving this one a push. as east, central and south east european subjects tend to be rather marginalised and should get a little bit more limelight now and then.
  8. As far as I see only the spanish F-18s are not yet present - any takers?
  9. Really cool Dave, let the Maple Leaf soar! Canaduan markings are always a welcome sight!.
  10. Thanks to everyone who signed up so far. I am sure this will be a cracking STGB once we get the numbets. We have almost every user of the jet accounted for already!
  11. I guess the Hawk kit will be the cheapest part of the build - any decals save for the included ones will probably double the cost of the build though.
  12. As for the shortening of the landing gear: Since U have been looking for advice myself, I came up with this image from a german forum:
  13. If I had to wager a guess I'd say that revell aquired the Heller mould around 1990 as all later Heller Alpha Jets are of the Airfix origin.
  14. I will be joining with the 2011 Revell reissue of the Alpha Jet, a classic Heller Kit as the moulds originate in 1977. @stevej60is building the same aircraft, albeit in a proper Heller boxing, so head over here to compare our efforts!
  15. Done and dusted desert falcon - would you be building a Kuwaiti Bug?
  16. I'll be following this one, as I intend to build the same kit, though in the guise of a Revell boxing.
  17. My favourites in descending order: Revell F-16 Super Hobby Mirage F.1 (also reboxed by Revell) Zvezda Mig 29 SMT (also reboxed by Revell) Airfix Harrier GR7/GR9 Airfix Lighting F.6 Hobby Boss Rafale and finally: Revell Hawk T.1 all in 1/72 scale.
  18. This is a chicken or egg dillema, isn't it? I.e. some people are focusing in a certain scale or subject and might join depending on thr topic. It would certainly be helpful if scale and broad topic would be proposed beforehand (i.e 1/72 airplane or 1/35 AFV or 1/700 ship). I am certain though that the 'usual suspects' alone will fill the 15 spots required.
  19. I'd be up for it, if it is in 1/72, flying with a jet engine and preferably from Revell (ideally one of their F-16) or maybe the Super Hobby Mirage F-1 (would the Revell Rebox qualify then as well?)
  20. May I draw on the collective knowledge of britmodeller on techiques of painting black models (in my case modern jet aircraft in 1:72 scale) to give them more variance and avoiding an uniform toylike look? I found out that preshading doesn't really work due to the drak pigment s of the black completely blocking any lighter grey/white pigments.
  21. Don't worry I am a soulless creature mercilessly pursuing the GBs to complete their build on time and to the highest standard of quality, don't care much for the budget though - particularly if it's not my own.
  22. Get the Operation Telic F.3 Hasegawa then, it supposedly has the Fighting Cocks markings. Hasegawa also did a black Tornado, but that was a GR.1, not sure about the F.3
