I'm in for this,

Two F-15 Eagles (A and C),  an F-4D-1 Skyray,  and Tornado F3 to choose from.

 

 

Each and every one of them a great option. The 'Ford' Skyray get my vote for rarity factor but also a fan of both the ADV Tornado and the Eagle :speak_cool:

This sounds fun!

 

I have a 1/35 CIWS that I would build for this.

Looks like we'll have ourselves a group build before to long @Col. . This should be fun if it passes the gunfight in November.

Fingers crossed we make the vote Dennis. I'm thinking this one could bring out some great models and a few less common subjects as well :thumbsup:

Excellent! What system do you have in mind?

Flagship Models' CIWS kit with Master Models' spiffy brass M61.

That does look quite a kit! :wow:

I had heard there once was a ship in the USN that painted one of its CIWS to look like R2-D2 ? They did that because supposedly the CIWS's nickname was/is R2-D2 with a gun. Not that I'm recommending you paint it up like R2-D2. Just a funny story i had heard once.

Anyone else up for this one? Was in my local model shop during Saturday and noticed a few eligible kits; Tamiya's 48th scale Crusader Mk.III "Anti-aircraft tank" along with Dragon's 35th scale Flakpanzer IV Wirbelwind and their 6th scale British Bren Gun w/Anti-Aircraft Tripod. There's a few potential options but I'm sure plenty more exist ;)

@Col. now that the "ground based interception" has grown in its significance in this GB you might be able to trawl a name or two (EDIT: actually 4!) from the Flak Alley GB- proposal.

I have a couple of Lightnings I(EE that is not the modern pretender) n the stash, which need an incentive to commence building, So I would be up for this.

Anyone is most welcome to join in the fun and any ground or water based interception systems will make for an interesting comparison to their airborne equivalents. If anyone wants to model an F-15 ASAT that's cool as well :speak_cool:

Lightnings are always most welcome to any GB we can fit them in my opinion :wub:

I didn't realise ESCI did an ASAT Eagle, remembered the Hasegawa one but guess they're very rare now, must have a look for that ESCI one... :hmmm:

Please put my name down for this G/B

Probably the Meng Me 163B Komet. I will not be doing the float plane version as that wasnt an interceptor :)

 

Cheers

Alistair

The Me163 certainly was an interceptor in perhaps the purest form. The float equiped version, as you say, is another matter entirely :lol:

 I was originally going to keep out of this one, but a quick check of the stash shows some eligible kits; F-14, F-15, Tornado F.3 and Mirage III

 

So add me to the list.
