IDeuxF GB. 12/17 - 12/18
Posted by fantacmet on Friday, November 24, 2017 8:37 PM

IDF GB PArt Duex.  Hence the CHEESEBALL name.

 

1 year Long.  Dec 1 to Dec 1.  2017 to 2018.  There will be a regular badge and a late finisher badge. 

 

Must be less than 20% started. 

Crossovers allowed. 

Theoretical allowed.

Armor. 

Soft. 

Aircraft. 

Even those weird things floating in or on the water.

OOB, kitbashed, modded to hell and back, completely scratchbuilt, anything in between.

I may be a little slow getting to the registration so please send me a PM.  It will work better.  Next time I'm home I will create a pair of badges.

 

At least one update a month, no photos are necessary except at least one at about June or July sometime.  And of course finished photos.  If you start late into the GB your midway photo can be midway between YOUR starts time and the GB end time.  Of course more photos are allowed.

Must be completed(if part of a diorama only the main kit must be completed painted and weathered) by 12-1-18 in order to get the regular badge.  Those completed 12-2-18 and later can get the late finisher badge.  Exceptions will be made for extenuating circumstances.  Job,  Military Deployment.  Illness or death of yourself or someone else you consider close(lets hope this doesn't happen).  Things that are reasonable basically.

 

1. Fantacmet - Meng Achzarit Early.

2. Taxtp - MPM METEOR F8.

3. Lewbud - Airfix spitfire mk IX

4. Theuns - Italeri Spitfire

5. Modelcrazy - Italeri Magach or Hobbyboss Merkava

6. M.Brindos - Hobbyboss Merkava

Put me down for a 1/72 Airfix Spit Mk. IX, Weizman's Black 57. The decals call for a Mk. VII, but the plane that survives is a Mk. IX.

I really wanted to do an IDF Spitfire too Theuns. I had plenty of kits but no decals for them, so went with something out of the stash. Looking forward to seeing yours. Cheers Tony

Hey Tony, I just had some IAF decals in the spares box from Academy T-6 so will be using those, nothing special ;-)

The Italeri kit is actually quite dissapointing, very little cockpit detail, shallow wheelwells and quite poor fit I read.

I'll join with either a 1/72 Italeri Magach 6 or Hobbyboss 1/72 Merkava Mk.IV.

I've got a Hobby Boss 1/72 Merkava IV that would work well for this.

Oh, same as MC lol! Looks like good detail for such a simple kit, and I could work some of my usual magic on it.

Count me in.

Here we go.  The kit.  My workspace. My tools and my entertainment.  I roll down the windows to get crossflow and turn up the heat in the truck when I paint.  I sit in thebsleeper and direct the paint into the main cab.  There might be overspray but it wipes off with simple green and windex...not to mention its my truck so.......

That's awesome Fantacmet what do you drive? I drove for 5 1/2 years. My rigs were a Volvo 670, Peterbilt 387 and Freightliner Century. I drove all the lower 48 as well as some Canada. It's a very tough job and you have my respect and gratitude. Do you ever make it through Boise?

As a company driver I startes with 2 Volvo 670s. Hated them. Then had a trio of prostars which I liked. All of those were 8 speed. Then I bought this truck Im in now. 2016 Cascadia Evolution with a 13 speed. I love it. I miss the storage style of the Prostar but everything else about the Freightshaker I love. Worth thr $$ Im forking over for it.

I purchased an 05 Century in 2010 and loved it although it was old and cost a lot to keep it going. I sold it in 2012 and have worked here in Boise ever since, Maybe you'll pass me on the highway tomorrow.

I am relocating to Dallas in a week to be placed on the lung transplant list so maybe you'll pass me down there sometime as well.
I'm going to enjoy this GB. I love IDF stuff..
