Supermarine SPITFIRE / SEAFIRE STGB 11Th April to 12Th July 2020

Recommended Posts

I have quite a few 1/72 Spits as well as a Seafire F47 in my stash so I will try and remember this GB in a few months time.

A certain well known model supplier in Lowestoft just got stock of the Sword Seafire collection in 1/72 (Mk.IIc, III, XV (x2) and XVII) - which I had on backorder! ^_^

 

I've been waiting to build a Seafire IIc for a while, so please add me to the list.

 

Cheers,

Five Seafires... not sure that I can make them all :unsure:.

 

Very grateful if you would add me to the list Patrice ( @TEMPESTMK5) to make the Seafire IIc.

 

Merci beaucoup!

Don't worry now that this Gb is official there is no need to add the name of the new comers to the list you will just have to open a build thread when the Gb will start in a few months ..

All the best

I'd be in if I knew what an stgb is as opposed to a GB :) I have a nice 1/48 bubble top spit in the stash.

I think a STGB is a Short Term GB, like the real thing but a bit less time. But 3 months is ample time, so maybe I’m mistaken? :unsure:

STGB is a Single Type Group Build, so in this case you are only allowed to build Spitfires and Seafires. A GB would be themed, so for instance the upcoming Battle of Britain, where you can model any aircraft, vehicle, ship, scene (snapshot of the time) as you like within the BoB timeframe.

Good afternoon Marklo

Welcome aboard .. STGB means Single Type Gb  during the future Spitfire Seafire STGB you can Only build a Spitfire or a Seafire whatever the subtype and it last only 3 months ..on the opposite  a Gb is dedicated to a wider subject for example during the future Battle of Britain Gb you will be to build whatever type of aircraft that took part in the Battle of Britain ..

I think at last count I had at least 12 Seafires in the stash, all 1:72 apart from a single Airfix  1:48 one. Also a small number of Spits, which were earmarked for conversion to Seafires before Admiral, AZ models and Sword started producing Seafires like there is no tomorrow. I also have some CMK resin Seafires as well. Looks like a major opportunity for stash reduction. Count me in.

I'm in with a history project. Sort of like a mini-CBAF run, but I don't want to spill many beans yet.

OK, after some internal debate I've decided to take the plunge and sign up. There's still a bit of space in between the Nordic GB and the Heller Classic GB 🙂 .... So let's just make 2020 a group build year then. I haven't built an aircraft since I was about 12 I think. I remember building a Stuka and also some blue thing of which I have absolutely no idea what it was. My builds always kept the colour they had when the plastic came out of the box 😋... and they always fell apart after a couple of months. 

 

But: I think the time has come to redeem myself in the aircraft department, and a Spitfire seems just the right subject for it. So count me in!

A fast trip to the Voorstraat should fix your Spitfire woes I'd guess ;)

Haha yes indeed it would 🙂 ... I'm thinking about the new Tamiya 1/48 scale though! This being my first plane I think that one would suit me well. 

Edit: it has been ordered, wow my first aircraft, it's starting to sink in 😉
