Spitfire Group Build....Rules and Information

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Spitfire Group Build.  This GB will run from 1 March to 30 September 2015.

 

Rules:

 

1.  Any Spitfire kit 1/32 or larger is eligible for entry.

2.  Entries should be no more than 25% complete at the start of the GB, I'll leave this to your discretion, if in doubt just ask.

3.  Any amount of kit bashing, after-market and/or scratch building is welcome as well completely OOB, just build it!

4.  Last but not least, have fun!

Ahhhh, this is a nice one. I'm in ( now to solve the photography issues preventing me from posting pics).

1. Use PC or Mac to post pics instead of iPad.

 

2. If that not helps turn to someone NOT completely digibetic (like the goatee-chap who follows you around a lot of the time...)

I'm in also, with the Revell Spit...maybe a new prop and seatbelts, otherwise oob.

 

@ Cees...when you have issues posting photos...inserting links. It's a Windows thing.

When you click on the top left icon...the one with some sort of "n" in it...you can insert a link (copy/paste).

Manualy put the img in front and behind it and it will work.

 

Hope this makes sense :unsure:

I'll throw a prize in for this...an exclusive, signed copy of my book, 'How to Build the Revell Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IIa'

 

Well, it's the least I can do ;)

Sounds good to me! I would love to have been able to use the Eduard Royal Class Spitfire Mk. IX but, wrong scale.

I'm determined to actually build something (or even two somethings) this year !!! That'll be a feat and half !!

My Revell Spit Mk IIa build is too far along so I'd have to acquire another kit. Looking at the ones availalbe I'd most likely want  to go with a Tamiya Mk IXc. Unfortunately the cheapest I can find one is right at $100 shipped, and Revell or HobbyBoss with aftermarket is only about $15 cheaper. Not too sure I can do that for a bit. Is there a cutoff date for entry?

Cut off is 30th Sep. To be honest... you really don't need any of the eduard stuff for the Tamiya kit. I would go box stock with some Barracuda bits and a am harness

I will jump in with a USAAF PR Spit with a Tamiya kit and Alley Cats conversion set.

Can i participate with a Tamiya spit MkIX with finished cockpit?

Does that exceed 25 %?

 

That's completely dependent on the size of the bribe you're willing to slip the GB coordinator!  :lol:  No problem, go for it!

Does anyone know if the greymatter resin Spitfire engine castings fit the new Revell Spit?

Talking Griffon here. I always liked G-FIRE

You still need to sign mine, bought it specifically for that reason at last year's SMW... :angry:

LOL, the cheaper the better!  If I'm corruptible at least it won't cost you much!
