Hi,

 

I voted a while ago.

My build(s) will be a top cover Spitfire Mk VII and/or a Typhoon, in 1/48.

I really like your General Gavin quote, nspreitler. :thumbsup:

 

Cheers, Stefan.

Look forward to seeing a Spitfire.

 

General Gavin is my personal hero, plus I'm in the 505th PIR

Today's 505th PIR! Wow!

I read General Gavin's autobiography around 1986-87, possibly before you were born. :-)

I'm 100% certain that he would think very highly of you guys 

 

Cheers, Stefan.

I was young in 1986, I was 10 then.  I certainly enjoy doing what I do, and certainly look up to those who came before.  My grandfather was in the 511th PIR, in the 11th Airborne Division in the Pacific.

Hi,

 

Since we'll be doing a D-Day to VE-Day Group Build in 2019, maybe we can do one for VJ-day in 2020?

 

Cheers, Stefan.

Am I understanding this correctly, that the build has extended itself to May 8th 1945? If so, that may change things.

Right, the GB is open to anything that participated from D-Day to VE Day

I would be interested in doing another C-47.  Here is mine from a few years ago. Unfortunately this model did not survive a move recently.

So I already had a Fw-190a, a Fw-190d, a Ta-152 and an He-162 I had lined up to build next. I will check dates for my schemes, but some or all of these may be my contribution to this GB. The only scheme I am worries about is the “A” model, I think it was an early 1944 scheme and may have been shot down before D-day.

This is on the calendar for a 1 Jan start. It should be good.  Lots of options for aircraft, vehicles, ships, figures, etc.   I am definitely building the Trumpeter C-47 to start, and if that goes quickly I'll have couple more.

I love that, a C-47 is a perfect kit for a D-Day GB

Intriguing.  I've been considering building the B-26 Marauder "Flak Bait" in full invasion stripes for the 2019 IPMS Nationals, which are also having a D-Day Anniversary theme category.

Looking forward to the GB! Torn between a T-bolt or Typhoon for this GB. Maybe I should just do both!
