Assuming this is going to be a 2020 GB? Far enough ahead to get organised, so sign me up!

Hi MarkSH, 

 

good to hear that you want to build a Heinkel He-111. We are nearly there to have enough builders for a GB slot.

fingers crossed that it we get there soon, so we get a date for the start. 

 

So guys, just three more and we are there!!! Come on and join us.

 

Cheers,

I'm stepping up!  I have a Hasegawa Heinkel He111P.  I also have the Roden -C, but, I'm not sure I have enough pills to get me through that build.

Hey you good people, only ONE more builder needed. This must be one of the oldest still running STGB threads, as Arnold started this more than two and a half years ago! Let's push this over the line, so Enzo can finally set us the slot. Pleeeease! V-P

:hmmm:maybe I should start another Britmodeller account in a family member name, and sign second time in this - but of course, I can't do that, can't I :wicked:

C'mon, ONE more!

Hey V-P, my current user name is not on the list though I have agreed to participate previously..... Is that a loophole you can use???? :P

Fortunately this is Arnolds' GB, not mine, so I don't need to tease my conscience!

I have still got a Revell 1/48 one in my stash with the V1 under it. 

As I can remember I promised to build one in 1/32 scale.:whistle:

I too have the Revell one, that's where I will borrow the launcher from to use with the Tamiya V1 in my stash, I wonder if ICM will release a H-22 V1 carrier themselves? :hmmm:

One problem with using either the Revell H-22 or converting the ICM H-20, according to the Black Cross book on the He 111 the H-22 had a metal plate fitted to the tailplane, this was to protect it from the jet pulse when the V 1 was started before launch.  Unfortunately the Revell kit does not have it, and as yet I have not found a photo of it fitted.  I have ordered the Top Drawings books on the He 111 and I am hoping they have some detail on this. :unsure:

I have seen just one picture with the tailplane on it and it doesn't seems to be fitted?! It is the prototype with the early backturret. If you google It it wil rurn up.

Is there a limit to how many people can be in this group? I put my hand up and I'm not on the list. 

Not a big issue for me as I will be building one next year anyway.

No limits.  Just a minimum number needed.  25 minimum for STGBs to get on the roster.  30 minimum for normal GBs to get on the ballot for voting (November I think).

Greg, 

 

the counting is now over, as we already have got the minimum needed to get a date for the STGB. 

But even if you are not on the list! Then you are very welcome to build one when this STGB starts. 

The more the better.

I know it is still some time to go before this GB starts, but slowly is 2020 kreeping up on us. 

I can't wait to start this one.

I'm sure I will be in. I just acquired resin engines to convert one of my Monogram Revell kits to a He 111P in a Blitz night scheme. Should go well with my current build.

O, that is nice. I didn't know there were some after market engines for a P version. I know there was a set vacum formed ones in the past, but difficult to get in Europe. I still don't understand why Revell/ monogram haven't brought that version out themselves? But maybee ICM will bring that out. 

 

Before you know it is the GB there. Can't wait to see your build.

I might have to start it early and get to the 25% line as this GB clashes with the Battle of Britain GB. I dealt I will complete both on time unless I do.
