AIRCRAFT - Stealth GB
Posted by Anonymous on Friday, August 06, 2004 10:12 PM
LOOKOUT BELOOOOOOOOOOOOOWW!!!!!! [:0]
Stealth GB is here! Big Smile [:D]

- Participants can build anything stealth of any scale from any time period: stealth planes, stealth helicopters, stealth figures, etc etc, just no sci-fi stealth.
- Historical accuracy is just frosting on the cake here. Some of us like our cakes without frosting, though! You could put Luftwaffe decals on your F-117 if you want, paint it wacko colors if you want, just have fun with it. That's what we're here for anyway.
- GB will commence September 3, 2004, and will cease February 5, 2005. This time window gives plenty of time for people to sign on and collect their needed materials, and then plenty of time for the build itself. Begins on a Friday for people who just can't wait to get started, and ends on a Saturday for those who like the weekends for their work.

Participants and their projects include:
Audiophile121
Academy 1/48 F-117 Nighthawk
_ROOSTA_
Revell 1/72 SR-71 Blackbird
A68Trans-AmMustang
Italeri 1/48 F-22 Raptor "in operational markings.Big Smile [:D]" (cue timpani roll!)

Would night fighters qualify as stealthy?

I think that any aircraft with stealthy or stealth like properties would be alright. Some are doing the SR-71, and that really isn't a true stealth aircraft. At least in my humble opinion. What kind of a night fighter would you have in mind??

Nothing set in stone but I was kind of thinking about a P-61Black Widow but I've also got a P-70 (A-20 night fighter) and a PBY Black Cat night bomber around here waiting to be built. With the length of the build I might do a couple, just depends on what is considered Stealth.
