One Hundred Years of The RAF – Inventory now up and running in ‘Groups’ Section!
Next year on April 1st, as many of you will know, the Royal Air Force is 100 years old.
I thought that this might be something we could commemorate here on iModeler.
It is a rich history:
Knowing that The Year of the Cat group build will be wrapped up by then, and that the Kasserine Pass group build will be deep into its reveal period, I wondered if there would be any interest in a new Group build based on the history of the RAF.
There are lots of ways it could be done – I would be happy to be (part of) the admin for the group (a few more experienced buddies would be warmly welcomed too).
Please reply if interested, and with the permission of the imodeler editorial group I’ll think up a few suitably loose guidelines.
Initial suggestion: start date 1st April 2018 (100th Birthday), reveal date 15th September (Battle of Britain Day) – build anything RAF – hopefully across the whole 100 years, trying not to double up on individual aircraft (e.g. not 25 versions of Douglas Bader’s Hurricane – but as many different RAF Hurricanes as people see fit), and write a little history at the point of the reveal.
What better reason to have a go at your new Airfix Walrus, or to dig out that vintage Matchbox spitfire from your stash?
Hope it flies,
