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


Recommended Posts

Pardon my lack of culture, but what's the difference between a GB and a STGB? I hope that my mojo will be back before september, so may I still enlist for other already planned GB's?

Thanks.

Pat.

Hi Pat! A "GB" or Group Build is based on some kind of theme in which you can build anything you like providing it fits the theme. An "STGB" or Single Type Group Build is where you all build the same thing, like a Spitfire or a Tiger 1 or something. 

 

You can always join every active group build once they're up and running, even if you didn't "sign up" beforehand. For GB's the rule is: the more the merrier 🙂

Thanks Jeroen.

I've got a 1/48 Revell kit of the "Spirit of St Louis" (that one was quite hard to find) and a Tamiya 1/48 "Storch" I'd like to build this year, also my wife offered me Wolfpack's 1/48 T-38 "Talon NASA" for Christmas.

Good reasons to join the unarmed or high wing GB's.

Absolutely. Basically, every reason is a good reason to join a GB 🙂 ... it's good for mojo too.

And HOW could I have missed this?!? A pity that I spent three months building ten Nordic subjects in the Heller GB. But hey, no problem. I have a huuuuuge stash of Nordic subjects. So put me up for this one. The goal must of course be to build one model from each country, although it may be a little optimistic. But why not try it? Here are a number of kits that I plan to build in this GB:

- 1/48 or 1/72 Hasegawa Saab J 35FS Draken (Finnish Air Force)
- 1/72 or 1/48 Canadair CF-104 Starfighter one or two-seater (Norwegian Air Force)
- 1/72 or 1/48 Tarangus Saab J 32 Lansen (Swedish Air Force)
- 1/72 Hobbyboss Westland Lynx Mk. 90 (Danish Navy)

- 1/144 Airfix or Revell DC-10 (Icelandair)

If I can find the time, some of them can be replaced by some of these substitutes (although all of them may be a little too time-consuming):

- 1/48 Kinetic F-5 (Norwegian Air Force)
- 1/48 Airfix Hawker Hunter (Danish Air Force)
- 1/48 Eduard MiG-21bis (Finnish Air Force)
- 1/48 Italeri BAe Hawk (Finnish Air Force)
- 1/48 Academy KV-107-II (Swedish Air Force)

that is a very impressive list, I think 9 complete builds from one member is the record from the last Nordic GB.

 

so make note in your diary for this one!

Well, I managed to build 12 complete builds in the recent Heller GB. So just five - or nine - seems to be an easy task. :D
