I'm in with my 1/32 TA-4J, though I do not have decals for this scale😡 I mean for an adversary unit. I could build the single TA-4J that NFWS used to operate but the paint scheme is very boring, not like the VF-126 or the VA-45 double-seat Scooters.

I propably missed it, but what were the rules again? Any Adversary-aircraft from the USN or specific ones?

 

I was thinking about doing a F-14 from the VF-74 in the two tone grey camo...

The rules are:

 

*** Any aircraft flown at the United States Navy Fighter Weapons School, or United States Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor program... Miramar or Fallon.

 

*** Adversary aircraft, student aircraft, as well as aircraft flown operationally by graduates of FWS are eligible.

 

*** Movie aircraft too.... cause this is meant to be fun, right? (this includes MiG-28s and cargo planes full of rubber dogshit out of Hong Kong)

 

Lastly, I'm not sure how the forum Gods work this... does the GB sub-forum open up on Saturday? I've never Moderated a group build before... I'm only the dummy that put forward the idea without knowing what he was getting into.

It will open the day the GB starts, and you will be contacted by a GB admin.

Hajo, a badass Tomcat! Did you get decals for the cat?

 

I´m planning to use the kits-decals of the Hobbyboss F-14B in 1/72. I think most of them should be working for the two tone scheme.

GB concludes in March though, so one could eke one out.

One might, but I can't. I'm lucky if I get a model built within a year. I have so many kits started and not finished it ain't funny. But yet I'm planning on this GB. What was I thinking?

Same deal brother, that's why I signed up to this, going to need all 6 months!

I have more kits started than I do in my stash! I am just plugging

along, in the same predicament. The good news is I am only building

one for this GB and I recently finished one very similar to it, just

finished a Dutch F-16A and am doing an F-16N, both kits 1/72

Hasegawa so it should be a breeze, SHOULD!---John

I opened the box, and chose my subject

It seemed like a good photo-op to snap a picture as soon as the GB starts.  I am going to build 160794 ... the Marine Corps F-5E from the Furball TOPGUN Tigers and Talons. More details in my build thread when the GB opens

The 1/72 Hasegawa F-16N is an easy kit to build as is the Fujimi. The only advantage that the Fujimi kit has is it's decals' sheet. It offers a lot of options, especially SNs.

 

Like everybody else, I'm also from those scale modellers who have started a lot of kits but none finished! This is why if I see that I can't make my 1/32 TA-4J on time, I will go for the Fujimi F-16N. I already have the kit and the Aires cockpit.

You could build a standard F-14A Tomcat first, put it on hold until December when Hasegawa releases the "Top Gun" kit, then paint & use the kit decals for it.
