So Revell is not correct in labelling thier kit as Steve Ritchie's. I'm rather confused about his plane. .

I finally found the box in my stash. It is a Revell F4-C/D. And that's that! It is the kit with the kill stars.

Send a private message to Tim Kidwell at FSM. He'll do it for you.

Thank you for including me in your GB. I think this may be the most modern jet I've done in quite a while.

After a little thought I am going to add an F-102 and drop the F-4. That way to will be an all Century Series build. Propeller

I love the subject area too. Incredible variety when you really research it.The big thing will be for you to keep on top of the GB while running it and not let it fade into oblivion.

Professor, we all started here as new guys. Many new guys show up, but not all of them stay to become regular contributing members, which is too bad. I dont think it is so much bias, but the fact that a lot of new members here come here, say a few things, then stop posting. One gets out of this site pretty much what they put into it. Come in, actively participate, share your work and no matter what your skill level, you will be accepted and people here will respond. The latest format change has seen some members cease their postings and a noticible drop in forum activity. Perhaps some new blood can pump some life back into here such as with this Vietnam Air War GB.

Its not too hard to run a Group Build. As Stikpusher stated just keep on top of it. Most of the time you will just sit back and let it run its coarse but during slow times give the thread a little bunp if it starts to fall past page five on the forum to see how people are doing. But most work done is updated completed builds. You have a subject that should bring people in. Dont be discouraged if you only start with five because as the build goes on more people join in, just take a look at my BF109 Group Build.. That one grew and grew.

...but I'm thinking about getting another 1/48 Revell F-106 if I can find it...

Which brings up a question. I do not think the -106 was ever in theater (correct me if I'm wrong), and is your GB limited to the SEA theater, or the era?

I think it's wise at this point to limit it to aircraft. To follow Stik out the door, oops he's the pusher; a successful GB is all about the host. The good ones are always present, and offer comments such as thanking people for posting, keeping the roster current, and generally doing housekeeping.

Daywalker, HvH, Stikko and Bish are some of the best I've served under.

Thanks BondoWink BTW, whatever happened with that GMC that you were working on with your dad for the Veteran's GB?

And yes tce, the 106 did not serve in combat in SEA, the only member of the Century Series not to do so. The F-100, RF-101, F-102, F-104, F-105, and even the F-111 all flew combat there. I dont think the F-106 ever left North America except for meets.
