About this Group
The Korean War started exactly 70 years ago today. This group build will follow the exact dates of the War and will end a little over 3 years from now on July 27th, 2023.
This group build is dedicated to all of the men and women who served their Country during the so called “Police Action”, that is still technically a war. Many do not know this, but all that has stopped the fighting on the front lines along the DMZ in Korea, is a cease fire order that has remained in effect since 1953. The DMZ has been a hot spot on several occasions every since then.
The goal of this group build is to honor all of those who served in Korea before, during, and after the cease fire took effect. They will not be forgotten any more.
This group build will follow the same dates as the conflict has. It will start on June 25th, 2020, and will end on July 27th, 2023. This group build will be going on for a little over three years. I will ask for help with moderating it from time to time.
Any type aircraft, vessel, tank, wheeled vehicle or tractor, artillery piece, submarine, helicopter, or any weapon of any kind that was used by either the United Nations or the Communist sides during the conflict will be allowed. As long as it was used during the War you can build a model of it.
There is not a new build requirement. If you have a model that is started, but not yet completed, you can post it. This is an effort to help clean out our “shelf of doom” that we all seem to have at some point or another.
You can give your old models a “Face Lift” and give them a new paint job if you so desire. You can resurrect your old models if you so desire. Just show how it was used during the War and you are good to go.
Any scale is OK. There is no requirement for any certain scale.
You can scratch build a model if you so desire.
All are invited to join us. No invitation is required.
Lets keep it fun………….

Oh, yes, my friend @uscusn! It is coming together beautifully! Loved all the turret innards assembly!
The cannon looks very realistic!
Next up to assemble the 37MM cannon.
First placing the binocular case in it’s location with in the turret.
Next to start assembling the cannon. Nice basic details.
Next the breech is placed […]
This where PE really does enhance an already well detailed kit on its own Erik and Spiros.
Thanks Curt, appreciate that.
I am still having trouble seeing this as a 1/72 build with all the great stuff you add. Also looking forward to the baseplate!
Congratulations, my friend @mvtb!
I am off to the headlines!
just got a bargain T-6 from Monogram,and,lovely as it is,I couldn´t resist getting back at this GB,for I found out a Carpena decal sheet about Mosquitoes with some of them wearing camo.
So,It will begin soon…
Thank you all for the kind comments and support along the way.
All the best!
…and it is done:
Some adjusts and then flat varnish and pastels…
Tom,thanks,it is really different.There is another,all uppers OD…
Under fuselage nav lights,aerial plus rudder cables on:
Well, now I know why you chose this particular airplane to model: no good painter can ever pass up a one-of-a-kind paint scheme!
Looking great! And out of the ordinary.
Pedro,sabe que eu pensei a mesma coisa….kkkkk
Nav lights on:
Getting better and better, Curt!
Weathering looks great to me!
Looking forward to your mini diorama!
I think I’m gong to stop with the weathering now…not exactly what I was hoping for but close enough! As if I haven’t spent enough time on this guy already, decided to build a small display base for the M46. […]
This is absolutely a case of vast improvement! Those QB replacements really stand out, and the paint and weathering you’ve done on them just do the trick big time!
Just as I thought it looked very nice, you just upped it a notch! What a pleasing result Marcus @mvtb, absolutely love it!
Ei Marcus, de certeza que este não é um avião japonês ? 😉
Fabulous model, airbrushing those green blotches after applying the decals is not for the faint of heart. Well done!
Thanks Jeff.The work goes on,blotches applied:
Marcus Vinicius Teixeira Borges, this is one great looking AT-6! @mvtb
