Any scale, any era, any war - starts 01 November 2014 through to 30 July 2015. Must be a 100% new build, open the box from new. I'll see if we have decent participation, i'll try and rustle up some support for prizes. Voting will be done on either Facebook or some other open social service at the end. Once we start, i'll put up the banner and create the thread.

Well let me be the first here and I will be building 2 kits in tandem on this one. Actual aircraft markings will be decided at a later stage but these are the builds:

So an aircraft... which flies... and destroys armor...which crawls...

... and you did say an aircraft...Twisted Evil


That... I believe I can participate in. Gimme a day or two to choose, but I'm in.

I will be stepping away from what I know and try something different:


A modern (?) JET. affraid

Been sitting in the stash:




Truly, it has been untouched:




But now it's open and ready for 01 NOV 14:




Good luck to everyone.  Especially me.  I can't find a propeller in this damn box. Suspect

....and I don't see any black crosses or Swastikas.. Shocked Great Ken, i think that the SU25 is a cool looking plane, as a matter of interest Ken, how big is that in comparison to say a Harrier?

Comparisons:

Good question, Mr. junkie. I had no idea, so I checked it out. What you see is the Su-25 at the top, Monogram Hawker Harrier (USMC version) in the middle, and at the bottom I threw in the P-47 because it was considered such a big fighter for its time. P-47 is Otaki.

All are 1/48th.





I dunno how to describe these:

-- Big for a single seater?scratch

-- Compact, yet huge? confused That's just a dumb statement.


!/48th is my scale so this will fit in with everything else. Very Happy

Thanks Ken, she is a nice size - small for a modern jet like the Harrier but much more Beefier. Looking forward to this!! Looks like a 2 man GB - fine by me.

Very good.

I'll start a build-thread on or after 01 NOV 14.

And I'm sure there'll be other participants once they decide on a plane. Exclamation

The Su-25 "Frogfoot", share a striking resemblance with the YA-9 that lost out to YA-10 (A-10) in the trails for the USAAF CAS kite.

Patience, please...

I am only able to exert so much excellence into each kit. One may have to lag a bit. Laughing
