Well, there has been enough interest that I'm going to run this build again in 2017. I still have a few float planes in my stash and I know a few of you do as well, so let's build them together. We had a bunch of really super cool kits built in 2016 and I am super motivated to do it again.
The rules for this year's GB will be the same as 2016 with one addition.
Here are the guidelines:
Carry over kits from the 2016 GB that were started and not finished or were never started WILL be allowed to move over to this build; let's get those kits done.
Any PLANE OR HELO that can land on water and take off
Any county, Any time period
Military or civilian
OOB or as much AM / scratch that you can handle
Crossovers are welcome
Pre-started kits are OK, provided they are only just getting started, ask if you have a question.
The build will begin January 1, 2017 and run until Dec 31, 2017.
Let me know what you are planning on knocking out and I'll get you added to the roster. This is gonna be another fun and cool GB.
