Such a long time since I've done any WWI stuff but… I'd be in on a group build!

I'm in with an old (bagged) Revell 1/28 Spad! I just have to find some instructions & decals for it :rolleyes:

This is maddening, 1 vote short.

I'd vote again, but I'm not from Chicago so I can't. :(

The build would incorporate all manner of models, correct? From Armor to Ships? Maybe put in a blurb on the "other" (besides Aircraft) forums. I know this is in "General" but some peeps may not stop by all that often. :thumbsup:

Not a bad idea...

I think some modellers look at WWI aircraft and get scared off by the rigging, but it's really not that difficult to do - time consuming, yes, but not difficult. And in any case there are a number of late-war types that have minimal rigging, and are available as modern kits in 1/72, 1/48 and 1/32, such as;

Fokker Dr.1

I have an old (and probably very inaccurate) 1/48 Monogram Sopwith Camel that has been kicking around long enough. If I can source out some markings for it (the kit decals are long since shot) then that's what I plan on doing.

Cheers!

Don.

Fact is, once the anniversary date rolls around there will always be one of these on the bench until they're done. And there are still a few holes-I'd like to get a Rumpler C type, SPAD 7, early Bristol and Fokker monoplanes.

But what I really need is to figure out where to start...

I really don't know what I'm going to build. I've got a modest stash of WW1 aircraft so it could be any of the usual aviation suspects. I have had my eye on the Airfix Iron Duke so a ship isn't out of the question and Emhar has some neat WW1 armor kits I've almost bought many times so a tank or armored car is a possibility as well. Will just have to see where my mind is at when the GB comes around (I'm always misplacing it so nothing new there).

Edit you post in the GB forum to show we're over 25 votes. You could also drop Neo a PM to let him know.

We haven't gotten a date yet so if you didn't vote yet, please do it. I would think that we wouldn't get a start until July or later so you have close to half a year to build something.

I think Shawn is one of the GB Moderators and he put use back on the list when we hit 25 yes votes. I didn't know you could be pulled off the list.
