Anything but the planes

** Update 13th July

 

 

 

 

 

Amended the rules to allow Pat ( aka @JOCKNEY ) to include his Rescue Launch

 

 

 

Prompted by a discussion in the current Anything But Injection GB, I put this proposal before you all for consideration.

 

The GB would be for anything found on an airfield owned or used by an air force, airline or airfield etc,, except man-made flying objects. So people, vehicles, buildings, boats etc.. can all be included, civil and military. Any scale and any modelling medium allowed.

 

I admit I have items planned that would fit this theme for at least 3 GB's this year (excluding Blitz builds and KUTA) but I will certainly have some over for 2022 should the GB get the required number and through the bunfight.

 

Thanks to the below for (potentially) joining in

Do fire dump aircraft count as non-flying objects or is it once a plane always a plane?

 

I think as long as the plane is in a state it can never fly again it could be included. That then raises the question of the TSR-2's at Shoeburyness that were restored would that be allowed?

Aircraft carrier count as a "mobile airfield"?  Could be an opportunity to build some flight deck/hangar deck gear.....tractors, huffers, EPUs, bomb carts, crash & salvage equipment.....

A reason to build a lot of this.

That is one reason I have made the suggestion for this thread. After pruning my stash is now predominately support vehicles.

Would the RAF rescue launch count for this one ?

 I have changed the criteria to let you in.

I'd be well in for this one - I have an unhealthy (for my wallet) love of airfield accessories - somewhere I have a storage box full of Eastern Express airport vehicles and airstairs as well as a stash-load of Brengun airfield accessories which are certainly small...

I've also got a load of whitemetal military vehicles I use to enhance airfield vignettes, which I could easily make the focus of a build, like these RAF rescue vehicles.

A little bump.

 

A GB to build add-ons for your other GBs.  :wicked:

 

Yes, I just built this little number to accompany my Unarmed GB An-28!

Having parted with a lot of dosh over the years I have a number of items in the stash which will qualify for a GB like this. They've not been built yet so I'm up to join in.

Not sure how I missed this. I’m always up for ground support equipment to act as set dressing when taking photos of my model flying things. Add my name, do!
