60th Anniversary Korean War Group Build- extended for the duration
Posted by stikpusher on Friday, June 11, 2010 6:36 PM

In remembrance of the 60th anniversary of the Korean War, this GB kicks off on June 25th 2010 and runs thru July 27 2011  now 2013. Any kit from any active combatant, land, sea, or air is allowed. Also allowed, in light of the current standoff in Korea and any commemorative schemes/events, are any current equipment from the ROK, DPRK, or USA currently stationed in Korea. Previously started and crossover builds are welcome. The main point is to build, have fun as such, and remember. This war saw many firsts- first jet vs jet combat, first wide scale use of helicopters in many combat roles, first open combat between the superpowers in the Cold War, the first modern 'limited' war. If you have a question about eligibility, ask away. I will do my best to get an answer for you ASAP.

****Edit- due to great participation and by agreeemnt of many participants, the end date has been extended to match that of the 60th anniversary of the Cease Fire July 27 2013.

 

F is for FIRE, That burns down the whole town!

U is for URANIUM... BOMBS!

N is for NO SURVIVORS...

Looking very good so far... we need ships, choppers, and figures... so break out your books, go watch Pork Chop Hill, The Bridges at Toko Ri, and The Hunters and lets get ready to build!

Here are two sizes of the GB Badge for those who have completed a project here

 

 

 

F is for FIRE, That burns down the whole town!

Stikpusher: please put me down for an Academy 1/35 K1A1. I've gotten some work done on it but need a kick in the pants to finish her off. I'll try to get started on the M46 sometime later this year.

Thanks again for handling the GB!

 Spikepusher: Go ahead and place me in for the MRC Bell H-47 (If I finnish early, and if there is enough summer vacation left, I may get the 2 P-51s required for an F-82 Twin Mustang)

P.S. I counted the list up, and the total participant number is at 25 participants (The largest I have ever seen so far)

 I'll get started tomorrow.

Railfan, your 47 is now listed. This GB does not kick off for two more weeks, but if you must start asap... Wink

It is gonna last for over a year, so if you wanna tackle the F-82 (Revell is slated to reissue the old Monogram 1/72 kit later this year) there should be time for this.

Macattack, you are added. We have plenty of time for a choice of kit.

Really looking forward to this GB!  I have yet to build a Sabre, and I think now is the time to do so.

Nice Helo. You really need Mike Forney. He came with the Fonderie kit.

OK Stik, I figured it out.  I will "attempt" to build the Italeri H-19 in 1/72.  I was going to  get the Fonderie Miniatures HO3S-1.  I see that Helo is building that chopper from Mach 2.  I figured I will do my part to get as many different subjects in the GB.  

I will start this in a little while as I have another GB commitment that involves a Revell 1/48 B-1B Lancer.  As soon as I want to throw that kit against a wall I will start the H-19.  This is my 2nd helicopter so be easy on me.  haha.

If the build doesn't kick-off for 2 weeks, then I'll wait, as I would like to get more research done. A perfect excuse to watch M*A*S*H from the pilot episode to "Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen" and watch Hawkeye pull a fast one on Frank (like the classic, locking him in a box to ship home)

I'll be building either a Tamiya Mig15 or Tamiya M26, both 1/48. It all depends which I get my hands on first. Going to a distant hobby shop in a week or two to see what they have, otherwise I'll have to resort to ebay again.

Helo, Bondo, Macattack, the roster has been updated. WW2psycho, once you have whatever kit in your hands, let me know. I would say, get both...Devil Or if you are insisting on a Tamiya kit, there are lots of other great ktis by Tamiya that qualify.

Stikpusher,

I'd like to join this group build also.  I participated in the 1st Korean War Group Build but never completed my 2nd build which is the Monogram 1/48 A/B-26-B Invader with the Eduards' Big Ed set plus the Quickboost engines and cowls.  It is approximately 25% complete with a long way to go.  Let me know if this qualifies.  Thanks!

Steve, as long as you plan on finishing it in markings of one of the Bomb Groups during Korea it is more than welcome.

Since this is a Korean War GB, can anyone help me identify a movie I remember seeing? I'm pretty sure it was based on Korea. All I remember is it was black and white, and this one pilot had a spotter type aircrafy that he thought of putting a radio in and he called in an airstrike from some jets on some North Korean tanks. Does it ring a bell to anyone? Its been a long time since I've seen it and thats all I can really tell you.

Stik,will comit with the kit I have already started and that is the Italeri F4U-4B. Believe this will give me the kick in the pants I need to finish her. Will post pics soon of previous progress and then WIP shots. Have an Engines and things resin mill which i doctored up the front and an Eduard zoom set for the office plus a few other bits. Going to drop the flaps and hang ordanance. Looking forward to seeing the great work that will be present!!!!

Count me in Stik.

Would like to do the Testor 1/35 M47. But not sure if it qualifies.

If not, just put done as TBD.

 

See ya

 

Scott

 

P.S.  Need some input on the patch for this GB?

Carlos:

My kit will be the 1/48 Hasegawa F-86F, backdated to an "E" using Scobie-Do Productions resin wing conversion kit.

I'm finishing up a Fw190 for Frank's "Reichdefender" GB and then I'll get going on this Sabre!

OK guys I have updated the roster-

Sim, what scale is the Italeri F4U?

M1, I have read that M47s were field tested in Korea, but they were not mainstream equipment. If you have anything you can point me towards that shows one of those M47s, I say go for it. If it was in theater during combat, go for it.

Mucker- very good on your backdate. Just curious as to what markings you will be choosing for your Saber? 4th or 51st?

4th in the honor of General Robinson Risner, a personal hero of mine. His book on his capture by the North Vietnemese, The Passing of the Night,  is a must read for those interested in POW topics. It's one of those book to read when you think YOU'RE life sucks. What our POW's went through is unthinkable.

I've already has custom decals made.

Stik, the F4U-4B is 1/72. I have a set of AM decals for it and will be in the markings of a Marine squadron synonymous with the bent wing bird, VMF-214.

Here's the pics from the start. I apologize now for those with dial-up.

PE rudder pedals

Ignition harness added with strip styrene, and copper wire. Pushrods are stretched black sprue.

And this is where it's at when last worked on. Looks like I don't have much but there is still a great deal to do.

Sim I am always amazed by those who can do that sort of work in 1/72! I will update the roster for scale on your build. I like your choice of the markings, the Blacksheep. Certainly a squadron with lots of history with the F4U. Only 11 days till kickoff.Whistling

I did manage to obtain a turned metal barrel for my Centurion over the weekend at the local AMPS chapter meeting (along with another Centurion, which I plan to build as a 1956 Suez tank) So now I have everything I need for the tank. I still want to get a TC figure from Ultracast to replace the kit TC.

Thanks Stik and Mucker!!!Toast I actually started this kit, as I said, during the Corsair GB a couple years ago only because I was waiting on some PE to come over from the Ukraine for my Swordfish. Then after getting the PE concentrated on the Stringbag and after cutting the flaps off of the Corsair my enthusiasm waned and just put it away until I am ready to tackle it again, and the time is near as I keep having the visions of it setting with full ordinance and flaps dropped ready to ruin somebody's day. Going to also be working on other projects as we all do but the year long stint should be time enough even for me lol.Propeller Looking forward to seeing all the great work that's in store for us all!!!Toast

After looking through the stash, I'm finding many of the kits I was considering don't have Korean war decals, so I'll plan on starting with the 1/72 Hasegawa F9F-2. It includes decals for VF-781 which was deployed to Korea with F9F-2s on the Bon Homme Richard CV-31 from May-Dec 1951.
