Close Air Support Group Build 2021 Needs YOU!
Posted by lewbud on Saturday, November 7, 2020 11:31 PM

Range of aircraft goes from the kites of WWI to the jets of today.  Strategic bombers are out, unless you're building a current B-1 with the appropriate pods for precision guided munitions.  Fighter versions of aircraft aren't allowed, but load her up with bombs/and or rockets and she's good to go.  Dedicated attack aircraft definitely allowed.  Attack helos definitely allowed.  Gunships also.  A couple of lists to go by.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_attack_aircraft

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attack_helicopter

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gunship

Start date: 01 Jan 2021 to 31 Dec 2021

Da rules:

See above references for ideas.   If it's not on the list, ask.

Started kits are welcome.

Crossovers are welcome.

Take lots of pics.

Have fun.

I have the 1/48 Airfix Sea Harrier in the stash as well.

Alright guys, got you on the list.  This is an auspicisious start indeed, although I was hoping Bish would step out of his comfort zone and do a bomb laden Spit.Big Smile

   My first group build will be one of Bish’s.  If I don’t freak out, I would like to join with Academy’s Viper Cobra.  I think that qualifie.  If not, I will build something else.

I'm in with a WWII Russian aircraft, still deciding which kit. Choices are a 1/32 Hobby Boss IL-2M3, a 1/32 Trumpeter Mig 3, or a 1/48 Zvezda Pe-2. All three are clamoring for attention, so I'm happy to have the rest of the year to decide.

This is shaping up to be a very interesting GB!
