Nordic II GB – Ragnar’s European Tour 2021 - 43 and still going


Recommended Posts

Ok I hadn’t planned this and I’m normally not that fond of part II or III etc GB’s, but this time I have to make an exception.

 

The Nordic GB is currently still running for a few more weeks but I have to say it’s the most successful and popular I’ve ever run. There were some worried times that it might not get the votes or even make it to the voting! 

 

But it did and it went off!! We’ve had every type of model built other than a train or something space related, numerous multi-builds, 9 by one member I think is most. Plus I think we've caused a worldwide shortage of Draken and Viggen models. :whistle:

 

I thought this GB would have been enough to satisfy their cravings for everything Nordic, but I was wrong, it actually seems to have ignited it!!!!  :jump_fire: Seems you can never have enough Drakens or Viggens…and hopefully a 1/48th Saab 105!

 

So it’s the same deal as before, the only new thing is there’s going to be a “Cooking with Bosse” episodes as well, no to be missed!  :eat:

 

Those already on the list please confirm here your intentions, to everyone else come and see what the fun was all about as we go on a European tour with Ragnar! :viking:

Or perhaps a "1952" collection of the Catalina affair.

Yep, definitely in, it would be nice to add a Tunnan and a Lansen to the two jets from the current Nordic GB.....and obviously @trickyrich this means you will be building the Draken after all ! :winkgrin:

No way....that Draken looks like a horrible model to build!! :D

 

I may have to build another Viggen, an SF this time, or an F-16, of a Starfighter, or a wee tank!!!  Maybe the Saab 105 will be released by then..........

 

.......and no I will not be building them all....keeping you lot in order eats up all my modelling time!

Although at this rate you'll never find out :shrug:

Oi! Timezones. It's not my fault you're on the wrong side of the planet you know 🙃  Although you're a fine one to accuse anyone of showing up late after procrastinating about this second edition for weeks:blah:

Add me to the list. I might have added a Viggen or a Draken to the stash by the time this gets through the various fights and votes.

That is pretty impressive. And looks like you will have a little scratchbuilding to do, that tail is different :P Well, they are probably slightly different variants?

 

Also, on the background is that @Torbjorn 's boatplanethingy?

Yea, they are neighbours at the museum  (the Thulin G, not Friedrichshafen) I’ve been thinking to build that one too and have collected some nice images if you need them. :)
