Simple enough Guy's The Soviet/Warsaw-Pact T-55 chassis The model may represent any vehicle in service with any Nation/Army from it's inception to the present day Criteria: The model, as a basis for a Tank and associated vehicles (Recovery, enhanced Trucks, Emergency Vehicles) The model built must be based on a 'REAL' vehicle and not a paper project (unless that project reached a working prototype trials vehicle stage) If any offering is in-doubt, the builder should provide evidence of its existence The Host/co-Host decision is final Exclusions: Sci
For this GB I will be doing something a little bit different for me, I’ll be building two identical models! By pure chance on evilbay I came across 2 1/48th OEZ Su-7’s for about $10 US! One model was missing the canopies and decals, but the kind sole threw in a VacForm aftermarket one. This wasn’t really needed as the kit supplies both open and closed canopy sets. So I intend to build a Czech Air Force and Soviet Su-7BKL, though right towards the end of their lives they were still frontline attack aircraft in the early 80’s (they were still some in service in the very early 90’s!). The mo
Hi all, I 'm hoping someone can clear something up I've been wondering about for ages. So, in my display case I'm keen to present my models along with different types, mostly in twos or threes, on diorama-ish bases. For the contrast you see?

Having had a look around, I couldn't find evidence of a recent Tiger Sqn GB (correct me if I'm wrong). I think it's time to have another, and I propose that we include not only NATO but any squadron anywhere, anytime that's had a tiger as its emblem. Keeping in mind that a number of ex-WarPac airforces are now proud NATO members, I think it could be interesting. Note that there will be no requirement to do a full-on Tiger Meet themed aircraft - subtle fin-top stripes or a badge on the nose, as per in-service airframes would be acceptable. What say you all?
