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………….

As soon as I finish a few projects I will gladly start building up a few F6F Hellcat’s with you. First I must make some room on the bench as I am currently almost out of working space. You […]

You are a lucky man to own not one but TWO of them ??? If I lived closer I might take you up on the task….. I would have to build up a new engine run stand though….. The one I […]
Got the airplane painted last night, she’ll get a coat of Future later and then on to decals. All that’s left of assembly is the landing gear and drop tanks, and I’m still mulling whether to add the tanks or […]
Some may know that Denmark contributed with the hospital ship “Jutlandia”. It did 3 tours there, and for the last tour it had a helideck installed. Now, I do not intend to build the ship, but one or two of the […]
What a great choice – always good when these small overlooked participants anywhere are getting some attention, and what a way to go! I like your details and the “parts harvest” from the paint mule and all. […]
I’ll be tuned in on this build, and looking forward to it too.
@jetmex, I’m tuned in on this one too – very good choice for this group build!
Hi Louis @lgardner!

Off to a good start Jaime.
Great Plane! The bubble top Spitfire is my favorite, and I didn’t know it flew during Korea.
My first throw of the hat with this group build will be something simple, but not without a few modifications. I found this kit for $6, and a set of Aeromaster decals for just a bit more, both at a LHS.
Some great progress made today!
I’ll let the pics do most the talking, but I’ll also add that I cut the kit seat up to use as a cushion for the P-51 seat, and added P-51 cockpit floor (wing top one) […]
Love the nose art, the build looks like it coming along nicely @jetmex.
Ready for paint….
I agree with the others, this one is a great choice.
I also have started this kit. It was began as a part of our fairly recent “100 Years of the RAF” group build. I never finished it […]
