Ben's right,
The more people who show an interest, the more likely we will be to do another one.
Thanks every one who has shown an interest so far, keep'em coming Image

I'll certainly have a go at the 1/72 beginners category. Not sure yet what kit, although I think I'll probably go for something pre-1960...

Yeah go on ! :P I`m going to embarass my self in the 1 32. I dont have a clue what I am doing but I have treated my self to a stonking Revell Harrier kit. Thats what happens when you go looking through ebay for a 1 48 Thunderbolt 2 and get distracted.
So does anybody know if the 1 32 Revell Harrier kit has a GR3 option, if not did the GR1 go to Norway and does anybody have any pictures.

Cheers

Even if you still decide to give the hobby up afterwards, theres nothing stopping you having a go (i would take part but I know one of the judges :whistle: , so I will just have to buy one of the kits instead :lol: )

I remember building the Revell 1/32 GR.1 kit well over 30 years ago. It's basically sound, but I don't remember there being a GR.3 option unless there is an after market nose available. I do remember winter cammo over-painting in the 70s, but don't have any reference pix to hand.

If the kit is that old it might be worth a few quid. Not sure if I want to waste it now. :S

At a guess, I'd say I built mine circa 1975 and it was a new release at the time, there was an excellent super detailing article in Military Modeling magazine - I was more interested in AFVs in those days - and it helped a lot.

In my opinion it was a very good kit for the time, and looks great when built. It was after all one of the very last purely British combat aircraft.

I will be having a go in this (if i can finish it before june) in the 1/72 Intermediate-Advanced section with the Tamiya 1/72 P-47D bubbletop. One question if i enter the i1/72 intermediate advanced can i enter the 1/48th beginners as well or not?

I dont really have a problem with that but I think that it would be best if I ask the other participants what they think. If you enter your first one for now, and then I will wait until next Saturday for peoples opinions.

So if people aren't happy about this then please PM me, I will of coarse keep it anonymous. That way I think it is fair
