NATO 75 Years GB: 4 April 2024 to 28 July 2024.


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

The more I thought about this one, the more I became excited about it.👍

I see that the Norwegian flag is next to my name. While I realise that we are not obliged to build something from the country that has our name next to it, I would build a Norwegian F-5A.

 

Cheers, Stefan.

With 30+ sign-ups shouldn't this be up in the Bunfight category ? 

Yes, but... As we're aiming for 2024, I think there's no hurry to get mixed up with the 2023 candidates 🙂. V-P

Gidday @vppelt68, would a RN Leopard class Type 41 frigate qualify? Regards, Jeff.

HMS Leopard, HMS Lynx, HMS Puma and HMS Jaguar most certainly qualify! May I add you to the list too? Best regards, V-P

I guess it would be rude of me to say NO. And I am the epitome of good manners. (Yeah, right! 😁)     OK, although my record of completions is not good at present. Regards, Jeff.

Just checking in on this one and I see I have a Belgian flag next to my name, so I will of course be happy to build a Belgian subject, in honour of my colleague @corsaircorp! It is bound to be an F-104 CC as I have so many of them! I hope to also build at least one other nations aircraft, and perhaps an AFV!

Completions are over-rated.  :whistle:

guess you'd better add me to the list, maybe by this time I would have built up the courage to do my 1/32nd Viggen in the "Splinter" scheme.....or I may have a 1/32nd Draken! :D

Damn, Rich, I'm glad to add you to the list, but the pre-membership machinery from any nation is not eligible... but check the "Neutrality etc GB" proposal, there a splintered Viggen would fit like a Volv... glove!

haha, jumping the gun a wee bit I think!!:D

 

But sign me up anyway, am bound to turn up with something a bit different... or large....or both.

 

I don't think my "Tuffed Duck" will be eligible as I'll be starting her as soon as #2 arrives......probably 3-4 weeks time.

 

Think I'll now go annoy the Neutrality lot now!!  🤣

I feel this is a historically important subject, which should be exempt from the usual Bunfight. Therefore  am making an executive decision. 

 

This GB will run from 4 April 2024 to 28 July 2024.

Well the date will be easy to remember, my parents 60th anniversary.

100% in. Very early positioning 18 months to the gunfight. 
 

Almost everything in the stash would be eligible. Maybe I’d need 18 months to decide. 🤔

 

Chris

Ha I’ve still got more than 18 months to decide. I guess it depends what I build next year which will depend on the bun fight.

I'm currently entering an F-86 frenzy, so there are numerous options there (Spanish sounds good). But as you say, there are 18 months to go, so no doubt my choice will change at least 36 times in that period! :lol:

 

Does anyone else find it scary that we are planning things 18 months in advance?!?!?!?

No this is Britmodeller and were all just a bit cracked here.

:hmmm:  It seems that's a bit of an understatement.   Before the expansion of NATO in the 90s, it seems that every member of NATO, with the exception of Iceland and Luxembourg, operated the F-86 in one form or another...

Scary?  Not really.  This is what we have spreadsheets for!  :evil_laugh:

I know the pain of the changing of the mind several times before a GB starts.  I'm lucky this time in that I've only a single eligible Canadian kit in the stash...at least as of now.  :lol:

It's no coincidence, then? Both my entries will reference the F-86.

Portugal didn't use so many types that I can risk building both before the GB.  One? Maybe. But not both?

Isn't that a lot of the fun, buying a kit, researching and planning to build it in a certain scheme, and then buying another kit for another scheme, and the you come to a GB and you decide to buy yet another kit. I'm not keen on doing a  French plane, so the scope here for kits both in the stash and in my head is enormous.
