Welcome to the Headquarters Air Command officially approved 100th Anniversary RAF GB. Formed on the 1st April 1918 (apparently it’s not an April fool’s joke, but many are yet to be convinced ) by the merger of the Royal Navy’s Royal Naval Air Service and the British Army’s Royal Flying Corps, Britain’s Royal Air Force (AKA Crab Air) was the first and so the oldest independent air force.
So, how can you mark this important event? Easy, you can build something connected with the RAF. This can include, well, I think aircraft would be a good start. But also vehicles, figures, busts and anything else you can think of.
But there is more. Also allowed are builds from the RAF predecessors, the RNAS and RFC. Plus, the FAA was a part of the RAF from 1924 until coming under navy command in 1939, so FAA builds from that period count. And more, foreign units that fought as part of the RAF. These could be Czech, Polish, American, Australian, Canadian, New Zealand or any others. Captured aircraft in RAF markings and plausible ‘What If’s’ such as the F-111K and TSR-2 can also be included. And I am sure I may have missed something, so if you’re not sure, just ask.
So you have plenty of options and no excuses. Now for the rules.
Build begins April 1st 2017 and ends April 1st 2018.
Progress pics are a must.
Partially started within reason is ok, and of course, any scale, AM or OOB and all the usual stuff.
Enjoy yourself. But of course only in line with Queens Regs (RAF)
Brylcreem is optional.
And even though it goes against everything i hold dear and true, Spitfires are allowed.
And now for your reward, a choice of one of 5 badges covering the history and future of the RAF.
So, sign up here for your 12 months service for Queen and country.
