Japanese Group Build VIII
Posted by Gamera on Monday, November 26, 2018 5:16 PM

Japanese Group Build VIII

Rules

*Start Date January 1, 2019

*End Date December 31, 2019

*Japanese subjects which I'll define as operating under the Japanese flag, aka a captured P-40 flown by a Japanese pilot would be kosher

*Cross-overs are welcome

*Pre-started are fine as long as they're under 10-20% finished (light assemby)

*Any 'roll-over' subjects from JGB VII are welcome

* No cut-off date for entry, you can enter on Dec 30 if you can build the model in a day

And most important have fun guys and gals!

For starters, I'm thinking a 1/72 Hasegawa Betty. I'll get a picture later.

Sounds awesome Steve. I've had one of those in my stash for ages but never seem to get around to her.

You must mean December 31 as the end date?

Since I haven't started the Betty yet I'll make it my entry for this one.  Tamiya 1/48.

Better put this one back in the mix.  I'll try to get some pictures of the current status, since I failed to finish it in the the last GB

Guys: Great choices, just put you all down! 

 

Jeaton: Thanks! I was doing the whole Cyber Monday thing and thought I'd squeeze this in there. Should have been more careful with my proofreading...

Steve: Gotta love that box art! 

Falcon: Don't sweat it, I'm hoping to barely slip in under the finish line with my own entry...

 

PS:  And sorry guys, with multiple Johns I think going by your callsigns will probably be the best way to keep me from getting confused again.
