70th Anniversary of the Korean War GB in 2020?
Posted by John 3:16 KJV on Wednesday, June 26, 2019 11:55 AM

Maybe I could start a GB for the 70th Anniversary of the Korean War (The Forgotten War) next year?

I ran a 60th Anniversary Korean War GB here from 2010 thru 2013 and we had great participation. Hopefully there will be the same amount of interest for yours. There is such great subject material choice out there.

Like the idea. I would be in, probably with some of the MIGs or Corsairs, I think they served there.

Yeah, Stikpusher's earlier GBs were some of the first I ever joined on this forum. Had a ball! Sounds like a great idea! Now if I could ONLY GET SOMETHING BUILT...

Yes, the Mig-15 made its combat debut in Korea in late 1950. Corsairs, the -4,-5, and AU-1 versions flew from the start to the end of the war. And so did so many more types- WWII retreads, and the latest jets... even Po-2 biplanes. The ground and sea wars also saw a mix of the old and new... 

Im certainly interested, but until I get settled into a new home next year I will not commit. But I do have plenty of land and air kits to choose from in my stash.

Thanks Stick. John, is it possible to have some kind of a list of airplanes/land vehicles that served there? Or should we go by "do your own research and ask to confirm"?

I guess the list could be very long, but maybe some overwiev?

Well, despite all the other ones I'm hosting, co-hosting and on the roster of, I could possably get a build in. It depends how long it lasts.

The only Korean War era kit I have, if I recall, is a Bell 47.

Here’s a list:

If you can think of something

outside the list, then sure, you can

ask to confirm... :)

Good list!!! 

At least for the U.S., U.K., Commonwealth forces almost anything from the end of the Second War World works. Plus some stuff that barely missed the war. The South Koreans were largly equiped out of U.S. warehouses. 

For the N. Koreans and Chinese it depended on what the Soviets sold them.

The ROKs started out very lightly equipped. The US did not want them to invade the North and try to unify the country by force. Of course this is exactly what the North did in June 1950. After being well equipped by the Soviets who had no such qualms.

For the Red Chinese, in addition to what was sold or provided to them by the Soviets, or what they could produce on their own, they had large stocks of US equipment captured from Nationalist forces during the recently ended Chinese Civil War.

Sounds like something right up my alley.  I have been on a modelling hiatus for years, and I'm just now getting back into it.  Stikpusher's Korean War GB has been my favorite.  I still have a ton of kits accumulated for that era.  

I will have to re-learn how to post photos.  I have since forgotten. 

Count me in.

I just might join in on this TOO!  I have an F86, and want to pick up a Mig 15 to replicate a display I saw at the Smithsonian's Udvar-Hazy museum:

Ahoy John,

This will be my first GB.  Looking forward to a nice Navy jet.  I'll watch the Bridges of Toko Ri  for inspiration.  Maybe even go for a Sikorsky H-5.  Looking forward to the experience.

I would like to join if I have time, but I am moving to Europe and will not be able to do much building for the next 6-8 months other than finishing up my current builds.

Well, this GB is for next year; so, there’s still several months to go yet before it starts... It will be good to have you two! Big Smile

Thank you for the recommendation, Galatians. :)

My father served aboard the USS Formoe DE-509 during the Korean War from 51-53. I have a 1/350 resin kit of his ship; this may be a good time to pull it out and honor him.
