In the early stages of the fight Mr. Winston Churchill spoke with affectionate raillery of me and my " Chicks. " He could have said nothing to make me more proud; every Chick was needed before the end.

I'll be in this one. I'm already committed to the IPMS(UK) Battle of Britain Display at Telford in 2020 so another  model will be a pleasure.

I'd be up for this. I know the time limits approximately. What would the geographic limit be? That is, would planes based at Turnhouse or Drem, or Scotland generally, qualify?

I'd think that would be okay, but let me know what you're thinking and we can discuss further if need be.

Having been in the 2010 and 2015 BoB GBs (albeit under a username I can no longer access), I rather think I need to be in for this. Too many potential kits to mention, but can feel a diorama in 1/72 with an Amera mouldings E-blast pen coming on, and deffo individual planes that either claimed kills or were involved in the action on the 'Hardest Day' the 18th August - Doe's Spitfire from 234 sqn, or Gray's Rotol propeller Mk1 from 54 sqn maybe. Arma's new hurricanes might make an appearance as well...have just finished Gun Button to Fire, so maybe Tom Neil's GN*F...he was involved in an action with Eric Lock, whose Spitfire I've already made; some sort of dogfight double? Who knows!

From the Daily Mail today.  Plenty of subject matter for the diorama builders....

I've changed my mind about this GB.  Because of the importance of the subject and anniversary, this one gets an automatic entry into the 2020 schedule. 

 

Dates are Friday 10 July 2020 to Saturday 31 October 2020.
