Oh? Would that be Diana by any chance? :wub:

Yes, yes it is.  :heart:

It's the Hasegawa 2 pack (https://www.scalemates.com/kits/hasegawa-02172-f-16a-adf-mlu-fighting-falcon--958292) that I nabbed on sale a while back.  Kinda funny, because I'm not usually a fan of colorful schemes on TPS jets, but this one grabbed my attention.  I think because it's more reminiscent of nose art, than adding a bunch of color like on CAG & wing commander aircraft.

Oh yes! Seen a few photos of the many tail-art schemes celebrating Diana The Huntress on jets over the years but these two are new to me. Good choice :wub:

Good for me - would you count me in please? I think a 1/72 F-84G multiple build might fit the bill?

 

cheers

I’m in V.P. These multi nation GB’s are lots of fun and are a good break from building subjects that one would describe as the ‘norm’. Just checking, would the NEIAF be acceptable here too? 
 

Cheers.. Dave 

Dave, I think that was an integral part of the Dutch armed forces and no-one would object us allowing these subjects in the GB. I wonder if the Belgians had something similar in the Africa? In case there was other such "subsidiaries" they would be all included. Oh, and not just the air forces; this should be open for all subjects, sea-land-air. V-P

Now...does Luxembourg have an air force?  

 

Obviously pre-ECSC/EEC BeNeLux is alright, right?  

 

Found this...

 

Piper Super Cub from Luxembourg.

All NATO AWACS planes (see my pic of one in post #7) are registered to the Luxembourg AF. They have one Airbus A400M Atlas on order, to be stationed in Belgium and operated as a part of a bi-national fleet. Delivery is expected in 2020 so maybe the Revell kit could be built as the one in 2021 :thumbsup:. V-P

One of three aircraft the Luxembourgers use(d)...the others are an Airbus Atlas and an Airbus H145 helicopter.  Probably difficult to not fly into Belgian/French/German airspace.  The wiki article on their armed forces reads like the Duchy of Grand Fenwick--no offence to all my Luxembourger friends!  That being said, I might have to concoct a What If aircraft just for kicks for Grand Fenwick.  I mean, they didn't have an aircraft anyway and...well, Grand Fenwick doesn't really exist...

Perhaps an old Farman or something...Bleriot XI maybe...😁

John, is the Grand Fenwick inhabited by some celtic tribe? "Aye! Nay!" I loved that :rofl:

Edit: Or is that a free-lance model railroad, perhaps? NO, see...

Edit 2: You learn something new every day! I gotta get a closer look at that tale 🙂

😉  I have an email into a source to see if I can get some decals...

...and I have "The mouse that roared" (the movie) on its way 🙂

Thanks for the tip, John! Maybe we should try to revive @Bonhoff's "Literary" GB proposal, let me see...

Count me in, be a good excuse to try a Revell Leopard 2 or GTK Boxer. They both come in specific Dutch versions. Plus a colourful Belgian wingy thing if there's time left - a Meteor, Hunter or maybe even a Hurricane.

hmmmm, I might join with the flying meat chopper known as Fokker XIII. I think dutch markings are the only ones available for that one...I don't see it build otherwise, some short shot parts will need to be scratched or repaired though.

I’d like to join in also.  I have a few potential subjects in the stash.  Willi Coppens’ blue Hanriot springs to mind...
