I just learned that there are SEA markings in the Encore boxing of this kit. It might be possible to get some second-hand on the buy and sell forum.

Sooo much to choose from: AH-1F, OA-4M, A-37, F-14, F/A-18E, F-101, F-100, A-4E/F. I dunno what to commit myself to and that's just what I know I have off the top of my head.

Looks like this GB idea has the votes almost for even our old plans. Now, I just hope everyone who said yes, will still play.

 

Right now, apart from two commission builds I have to do I want to do (most) of the following

 

1/48 CF-101 Voodoo Maybe X2

1/48 CC-129 Taget towing Dakota.

1/48 F-4C Phantom (of course)

1/32 CH-118 Iroquois (Huey)

1/32 CF-104 Starfighter

1/32 F-4E Phantom

 

Won't get them all, but I will do some.

I was able to post a thread, but I Am a mod in the build so that may be a factor.  Try again in a few minutes? maybe if somone else wants to try as a trouble shooting step as well.

Here's a thought, would a RoG kit count?

I think it would depend on the history of the kit. Many of Revell Germany kits may be Hasegawa or other manufacturers. If it is a Monogram original I think that would work right?

So no 1/72 Revell F9F-5 Panther as it is Matchbox, right? One of my favorites

but understandable.---John

Since the point of this GB is to memorialize the releases of the recently defunct American Revell/Revell-Monogram, please make sure that whatever you build was originally tooled by Revell USA or mongram.

Start with your basic kit, add whatever you want.

It is interesting that there is so much interest in Monogram recently and I attribute that to the whole Revell folding thing. Anyway a few months ago I joined a Monogram FB group. When I joined it was around 6K members. Now a few months later it is over 8K. Wow who would have thought. Lots of neat stuff there with people showing their builds of Monogram and Revell models. Bob Johnson, who worked at Monogram is also a member and he posts interesting tidbits on how things were done back in the day. There are even posts of models that I never knew Monogram produced and that in itself is wonderful. Lots of history.

Lets get our collective Group build mojo happening again. Vote yes or no. A nice simple Group Build using those simple Revell Monogram kits we all have in our stash. There is SO many possibilities, scales, eras. Add what after market you wish, don't add after market whatever.

Unlike other recent GBs we will aim to get this happening quickly, like August 1. Lasts 6 months. Prizes? Well sure if YOU want to donate and mail them out then thanks.

 

Build whatever you want. As long as you start with a reasonably fresh untouched kit. And of course show the photos as you build so we can all share, learn and enjoy. Kurt H and I will moderate.

 

*******Its been correctly pointed out that we were going to do a couple votes for possible GBs. Right here is the one that Kurt and I will moderate if it wins. If you want to moderate another GB to what you want, then set up a poll and be ready to moderate it*********

You know me, I always offer SprueBro prizes in GB's I participate in!
