Still Too Many Props GB - 2013
Posted by B17Pilot on Wednesday, November 28, 2012 8:49 AM

This is round two of the Way Too Many Props GB from earlier. There was interest for a round two so I'm officially starting it.

Building to start on Jan. 1, 2013 and run til Dec. 31, 2013

Rules:

  • Any scale, any era, any type (fighter, bomber, transport, etc.)
  • Out of box or as much AM sets that will fit into the aircraft
  • One engine turning one prop and has to be at least two (Wright Flyer will not work, since only one engine turned both props; Tu-95 will work cause there are four engines, each turning two props a piece)
  • Must be mainly powered by props but must have multiple props, so late models of the B-36 (six turning, four burning) is allowed; but one jet and one prop is not
  • Turbo props, like the C-130, are allowed
  • No jets, like the B-52
  • Propliners definitely included
  • Builds less than 50% are allowed
  • Crossovers welcome
  • Post Pics of progress is a must
  • Conversions allowed if documented example exists, but must still fit the rules.  I.E. XB-38
  • No what ifs
  • Any model started in the first round, no matter the percent completed are welcome to finish here

Feel free to take badge anytime:

or small

Hi B17pilot

I'd like to support you with this GB. Can you put me down with a TBD please.  I'll have a sift through the stash and let you know before the start date.

Cheers

As much as i am commited to quite a few GB's, i can't miss this one. Put me down for the Hasegawa B-24D lead ship. This is the kit i was going to do when i thought my B-17 might be a no go.

Feel free to start your builds anytime now! I got a P-47 to add a flat coat too and she'll be done, minus the fuel tank and pylons before I'll pull out my B-26

I like the Badge ! Most of the B-17 resin interior upgrades have arrived so I'll be sawing bits of plastic soon. Still waiting on a bombay upgrade set.

What's your upgrade set? I put a true details cockpit and nose set into an early -G and that set fought me all the way! I had one heck of a time getting it into the fuselodge
