US Navy Group Build

Recommended Posts

thanks Mish... ok guys - ANYTHING US Navy - so boats, subs, aircraft, figures - anything. No USMC or USCG (going on the Wikipedia definition of the US uniformed services which has USN, USMC and USCG all as separate branches....)

if RL permits, Parabat will join myself and wellzy as a host as this starts over summer holidays.....

Well, checking my stash record, I have 28 possible entries for this GB...I guess I'll get to Aug 2013 and see what's left before getting too carried away

Since it's only a three month GB I'll probably be building one of the 7 destroyers I have in the stash.

I've got no shortage of Navy air in my stash, so as we get closer I'll pick something based on what I've got, what I feel like building, and what's under-represented in the group build ;)

Hopefully, I'll be doing a 1/32 Intruder-they should be out by then. If not, no worries, lots to choose from.

I'm in, I did say Marine in the last thread but the excitment got the better of me and I meant Navy! I have a few things in the stash to open... but I'm toying with the idea of a US Navy C-20 Gulfstream, 72nd vacform.

nothing in the stash for me so a great excuse to go and buy something!

Maybe a Navy Skyraider, or a Phantom, see what the new Academy offering looks like...or to really rock the boat an F35C....

Good to see the interest in this one, there should be some good variation available to all who take part, so start thinking of your builds now! Heck, tell your friends, we may even get someone build a carrier for this one!

I was thinking of doing a carrier, as I've got 5 in the stash, but I wouldn't be able to build one in three months as I have shed loads of AM for each. What are the chances of having the GB extended to 6 months?

Ha, an extended date gets my vote if it means you churning out a US carrier, Dave! Would love to see that!

No worries, as potential Co-host for this GB I will be sending out reminders to all pledges a month in advance of the start ^_^

I have loads of USN stuff in my stash. I will have a look later to see what will be build. I will probably build something OOB.

I'm having a wild idea of building an FJ-3 using the falcon conversion for this GB. The conversion was designed for the heller F-86 kit, I'll have to check if it fits the newer airfix kit or the academy one. The FJ-3 is IMHO an interesting type and it's a pity no kit has ever been done in plastic of this version.
