Modern Group Build
Posted by BrandonK on Monday, May 09, 2016 6:17 PM

So, here we go folks. This one is pretty simple. Build a modern airplane. The only limit will be no piston driven aircraft, but props are allowed. So, a turbo prop will work. Me262 and Gloster Gladiator fit this build as an example, as do Mig-29s or A-10s, etc.

Time frame; June 1, 2016 to Nov 30, 2017, yes it's a long one.

Rules:

Any scale

Crossovers allowed

Any nation

Civilian or Military

No piston driven planes, must be modern ie, turbo prop, jet, turbo fan, rocket, solar

No gliders, must be self propelled

Started kits must be no more than 10% underway.

 

Sign up whenever, so long as you complete the build on time. Feel free to ask about anything or kit that you think may or may not fit and I'll let you know.

I'll join in with Tamiya's 1/32 F4D.  Will be done as Ritche's 67-463, with a sheet of Print Scale decals.  Have an Eduard cockpit set of PE and the full Verlinden resin office and nose PE as well. Don't know how much of that I'll use as I don't know if I'll do an open radome or not.

Won't get started on it till late in the year, have MC's sub build up first but will get started as a fill in while the sea base is curing.

Got to finish up the Betty for Gamera's GB as well.....maybe in July.

Hey BK, didn't notice this was running for 18 months till just now. I might jump in on this, depending on how things go over the coming months. I assume a F-15, F-16, or Su-22 would work?

BrandonK,

Here is the kit I'd like to enter, 1/48 Hasegawa F-16B

But, I will let you decide if this is more than 10% complete:

Cockpit was opened to allow for an Aires resin cockpit set, and drop tanks were glued together.

Most sprues are still intact

This the the Aries cockpit set and engine set. I did sand down the cockpit to fit into the fuselage. Still have some fitting to do.

These are the decals I plan to use. It will be one of the Michigan ANG 191st FIG "Six Pack"

 

I'll let you decide if it's more than 10% complete. If you believe so, I have plenty of other subjects, so that won't be a problem. 

Thanks!

 

 

Bruce

Hi Brandon Do helicopters fit the definition? I have a Cobra getting close to the top of my build list... If not then there will be something else I am sure. Piers

Tony, i found that Dragon kit rather nice. I built their Mistel 5 a few years back and they use the same 162 kit. The onyl fit issue was where the tail cone fits onto the fuselage, needs some filler there. I'll be doing the Dragon 162 on its own along with the revell 32nd late rthis yera, so looks like we will be awash with Volkjagers.

Since this build is long enough, I'm gonna add another one of my kits that needs to be build, nah, let's do 3 kits.

Hobby Boss F-111D

Academy F-4B

Great Wall Hobby Mig-29

All in 1/48. This way I will be forced to get them done, instead of wanting to get them done.

Ok, BK, I've thought about it and count me in. I'll enter this 1/48th Kinetic F-16B. When I saw the cool Flying Tigers anniversary decals for this Republic of China (aka Free China/ aka Taiwon) fighter I had to pick it up. And it's gotten rave reviews, should be interesting as it's the first F-16 I've ever built (believe it or not- modeling 35 or so years and never built a Viper).

Brandon,

Sign me up for the classic Hasegawa EA-6B.  Markings will probably be from a slightly younger Microscale sheet.  However, I just found a Basler turbo prop conversion to convert the new Airfix C-47 into U.S. Forest Service smoke jumper aircraft.
