Add me please.  Start with a 1/48 Hasegawa F-22A.  OOB.  If this runs 6 months or more, I may add a Tomcat of some sort too.   Need to get motivated again in prep for the Weekend Madness builds.  Probably wont get out of the gates until after next weekends camping trip, but that will give me time to get the bench cleared off and ready to go.

Good Luck everyone.

Well after Photobucket incident I lost my interest along my pictures to "Too little, too late gb" so propably it´s time to take part to another.

 

I would like to join with this:

 

 

Airfix Angel Interceptor from Captain Scarlet. Looks like it needs bit scratch build.

I hope this gb will last atleast 6 months (hopefully more), that I´m able to finish this.

That Angle Interceptor looks interesting!  I say it will last till whenever cause my last attempt at a GB went nowhere.  It's all up to you guys and as long as there is someone besides me I'll keep it going.  

I've been using PostImage for photo hosting with good results.

68GT,

Sir, keep this GB going....even if it's just 3 of you so what. It will still be a fun and enjoyable GB. I plan on joining, but I have 2 other GB's to complete first then I'll be joining this one. Don't worry about how many join. Wink

P.S. - Great job on the GB badges

Not that I'm trying to be a pain in the butt, however I'm currently working on a P-61 night fighter. Would this count as an Interceptor?

If so I have only got a little paint on it and nothing glued yet so is that acceptable?

                      Dont worry about the thumbprint... paint it rust and call it "Battle damage" !

Timmy, according to Wikipedia the F-61 was used as a long range, all weather day/night interceptor after the war.  One could argue that it also did this during WWII also.

Sounds good

Ok if the P-61 work's for the group build, please take a look at my WIP build { P-61 the slo-poke build} in the aircraft forum and let me know if it's too far along to qualify. 

If so I can find another kit to build here.

Would like to join in with the Revell 1/48 F-15C, in Oregon ANG "Eagle" markings, based out of Kingsley Field, Klamath Falls.  Oregon Guard primary role as I understand is interception off the NW coast.

I'm starting with a Revell F-8E in 1/72 scale.  It's going to be straight out of the box but might use some Hasegawa decals intead of what came with the kit.  It came as a set to the F-4B I have in the Monogram GB.

Here are the obligated before pics with the box art and contents.

More decals than I care to count.  Markings are for the 75th Anniversary of the Oregon ANG, Bird is/was based at Kingsley Field, Klamath Falls, Oregon.  Will get it washed up Sunday, and start painting next week.  Will be done OOB, and in flight

Kit was given to me as a thank you for giving my mining claim partner's daughter a kids metal detector I won in a raffle.  She picked it out, has good taste for 7-8 years old.

OH GT you have started something to give me a kick in the Censored. Put me down for 1/48 F-106 Revell boxed classic Monogram kit lol. I will be doing it in California ANG colors. I saw one at an airshow at Mather AFB back in the 80's. So, going to build one hehehe. Cannot for the life of me find a pic that I or my brother might have taken of it though, so will be whatever comes on the decal sheet.Eats

Nice, I've actually never seen those markings before.

 

WhenI was in HL getting the paint for it, they had them on the shelf.  2017 date on box.  Copyright date of 1979 on fuselage, molded in China.

The tail fin decals are a thing of beauty, both inners and outers.

Hello all,

Good looking GB so far....I am building the AirFix 1:72 Fw 190 F-8. I will be doing the winter camo scheme. Sadly this is going to be a OOB build.

The pit...not too much to this one

Going to let it dry for a few hours and then apply putty and primer coat. This was my first AirFix kit and had fit issues with most of the pieces so far. A lot of sanding to add in the fitting of parts. Over all I am pleased with this kit and will definitely purchase another AirFix kit.

Thanks again 68GT for hosting this GB

GH,

I am really looking froward to this one...I have one similar in the stash. I look forward to seeing what you do with her. Enjoy

Nice job on the 190 Hunter. I've got the same kit in the queue at the moment, hopefully I'll get to it in January. I like the modern Airfix kits, they have a nice 'feel' to them. Cheers Tony

I'm just taking it one GB at a time.
