Hi Rich

I have the same problem when I enter my local Hobby shop to buy some paints it is very hard to go out without a plastic model ...

 

I will do my best to take part in this Gb but my build programm is already very busy for this year ...

 

Cheers

Hi Rich

Thank you for your comment but 2021 is still another year where there are too many interesting GBs in which I would like to participate but unfortunately where I do not have enough time to spend on building kits nevertheless i would do my best to join this one ...

Cheers

Yup, the Mitsu F-2 is cleared for takeoff per Rich in the first post.  It's an F-16 on steroids.

Found Rich’s rules.

 

Ok I've found the original rules I had for the last F-16 STGB:

 

“#2 - The build subject is the General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon (it’s original name) and all of its model variations. Plus I will allow the Mitsubishi F-2 as it’s a F-16 on steroids!

 

Ok one extra for some which I know will make happy, I will allow "proper operational" WhatIf schemes for the F-16XL, plus any current (or past) weapon loadouts. 

 

What this means is the F-16XL scheme has to be one that is currently on (or was on) an F-16. So who will be the first to do an F-16XL in an Israeli F-16I Sufa scheme?   That would've been me if I wasn't building a 1/32nd beast.”

 welcome along Miko to you first GB/STGB by the looks of it, and you're sweet with this one and what a fine choice too!!! :thumbsup:  There is a lot of F-16 DNA in that aircraft..... most would think it's an F-16 at first glance.

 

I love the scheme, I hope that's the one you're doing!

Thanks for your welcome

 

Yep, that's the kit, I've gathered all the supplies I need so ready to start!

 

Interesting aircraft, I'll post my research when we begin

ok it's not quite time to panic yet, but hopefully everyone's got their builds planned, at the rate this year is going it'll be here before we know it!

 

Plus I've even updated the list, 16 new victims names.... yes I have been slack in keeping that up to date.

 

One question, what scale is everyones builds? I'd be interesting to see which is the most popular, being a smallish jet 1/48th would be perfect. Plus there are some lovely models out there in that scale. Plus it would be interesting to see the variety, I know one Gumby is going huge with 1/32nd :D, but will we see some wee 1/144th we have a wee 1/100th from @CliffB.

 

Anyway let me know and I'll update the list.

I'll probably be doing a 1/72 Diana.  Need to get the 1/72 kits cleared out.....though there have been some tempting 1/48 arrivals of late.  :hmmm:

I'm sorry Rich, but my F-16 kit is no more and hence I won't be participating in the Group Build :(.

Prompted by a significant birthday, I've recently carried out a SABLE analysis on my stash and (surprise, surprise), it contained approximately twice as many kits as I could possibly build in my remaining years!

Unfortunately, the F-16 (and indeed most post-60s subjects), fell victim to the resulting cull.  

 

Cheers

I needed to order a couple bits for the A-4 I just got underway.....and some resin cans, seats & metal pitots for the Diana duo may have fallen into the cart.  :whistle:
