this is how I want it: in khaki upper camo.
Such a nice machine in the "what if we had this against the Germans?"


Or full khaki down to hull line like a spitfire

Hi @Steben, @Rafwaffe, @Paul Bradley, @Evil_Toast_RSA,

 

welcome along, folks, glad to have you on board with this GB! Apologies for not having added your tags sooner, but I've been having a few issues with my internet connection.

 

Steben: I do like the Renard R.36, and I think the khaki extended down the fuselage sides looks better. Hope we get through the Bunfight, as I'm looking forward to this one!

 

Cheers,

Mark

rebrand your GB and go at it again :P  In.   There must be at least one GB I can do some LVA in :D

Excellent! Welcome along! :)

 

Cheers,

Mark

Hi Mark.  This GB sounds really interesting, but I'm struggling to understand what defines a nation as being 'neutral' and whether this neutrality relates solely to a specific time period or conflict?    I'm sure there must be a legal definition somewhere!  Can you help me out please :winkgrin:?

 

Cheers

My understanding of a country's neutrality is their position during one specific conflict

eg, the Swiss, always believed constantly Neutral, and were in WW1 and WW2 but they fought wars right up to the early part of the 19th Century, same for Sweden, they fought in wars right into the late 18th Century

Thus if you want to depict a Swedish musketeer of 1760, Sweden was not 'neutral' then but involved in a 'Seven Years War' but do a SAAB J21 of WW2 era, Sweden was 'neutral' then

Thanks BK :thumbsup2:

 

According to Wikipedia, Sweden had a formal policy of being neutral in all international conflicts from the early 19th century up until 2009 (when it signed military co-operation agreements with some other nations), so on this basis presumably any subject during this time period should qualify for the GB?

 

On reflection, I think the answer to my question on eligibilty is that there needs have been an official declaration of a nation's neutrality, in force at the time of the build subject.  

 

This is just my thought though,  @2996 Victor may have a different view.

 

Cheers

As he mentions "United States pre-Dec 7th 1941" in the first post, I'd say any subject from a time period where the nation depicted was not formally in a state of war should be fine 🙂
