Official Ground Attack Group Build
Posted by TheWildChild on Tuesday, January 31, 2012 9:21 AM

well i got a few responses in the feeler for this so i decided to make the official GB. This is the official 2012-2013 Ground Attack/CAS Group Build. this GB will run from Feb. 1 2012 to July 1st 2013. Here are the rules

1. Any aircraft in any scale ( helicopters are included as well) that is a dedicated ground attack aircraft is elgible from any time period.

2. multirole aircraft (i.e. P47, FW190, F-16, F-15) are ok as long as they are carrying ground-attack weapons.

3. Aircraft variants determine elgibility (a greenhouse nose B-25 would not work because its a bedium bomber. however, the solid nose B-25 variants would be fine because they are attack aircraft)

4. Any aftermarket and/or scratchbuilt parts are are fine.

5. any markings are fine: you can make a random aircraft from a unit that does not exist if you wish, or use specific squadrons or actual aircraft, it does not matter to me.

6.Have Fun! Sub Revolution created badges and you can take one upon competion of your build/builds

send me a PM to confirm your aircraft and scale. also let me know if you have questions concerning aircraft elgibility.

Happy Building!

O what the heck, stick me down as well. I probably won't be able to start until early next year. Its just so happens that the next kit on my build list is the Academy 1/72ndJju 87G-1. You can't get much more ground attack than that.

I'd be interested!  I just started an Encore (Monogram) A-37 dragonfly that would fit the bill for this GB.

Are started builds allowed? I am most interested in the theme of this GB and with its nice long dates can find something to build if the started builds are not allowed.

Would a TA-7C with weaponry qualify for this GB? I have one in 1/48 from Hobby Boss.

Stik: started builds are fine by me, just let me know what you are building and the scale and i will add you to the roster.

Discostu: adding you to the roster momentarily!

ww2psycho: yep thats ok, its a ground attack loadout.

casper: if it has air-to-ground weapons from a few pylons it will be just fine.

hope to be building with you soon fellas! Regards, Logan.

Hey WildChild, can you put me down as a tentative on this one?

I think i'll be building an A-7 - either 1/48 Hasegawa or 1/72 Fujimi.

Doubt i'll start before July this year though.

That sucks.

Here's a few I threw together. If you like one of them I can clean it up a little bit. Or if anybody has some suggestions, I can incorporate them.

Now if I would just spend less time photo-shopping and more time modeling.... *sigh*

badge 1

BADGE 2

BADGE 3

BADGE 4

BADGE 5

I would obviously resize them also...

TWC:

I saw this GB and figure with the long build time I can squeeze in my SU-25, with your blessing of course!

It is the Italeri 1/72 SU-25. I am planing on doing it straight out of the box, but I may add some AM weapons that I have in the stash!

I will look for your reply!
