  • Group Build 12: Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21 “Fishbed”
    The origins of the MiG-21 can be traced back to the swept-wing Ye-2 in 1954. Its successor the Ye-4 first flew on 16 June, 1955 and featured the delta-wing configuration so synonymous with the “Fishbed”. After years of development, the design eventually entered service with the VVS as the MiG-21F in 1959. Since that time, over 11,000 aircraft have been built, serving with nigh on 60 air forces. All variants of the MiG-21 are fair game here, including the license-built Chengdu J-7 “Fishcan”.
    Runs from 1 October 2019 to 31 December 2019.

  • Group Build 11: Messerschmitt Me262
    Whilst it wasn't the first military turbojet to fly, the Messerschmitt Me262 was the first to become fully operational. Faster and more heavily armed than its RAF counterpart, the Gloster Meteor, the 262 could well have seriously altered the balance of air power in the latter part of WW2 had it been available in greater numbers. Both the single-seat A and dual-seat B series can be built here, and kit enhancements and conversions are encouraged.
    Runs from 10 August 2019 to 22 September 2019.

  • Group Build 10: Between the Wars
    The two decades between the First and Second World Wars saw major advances in all areas of technology. In military and civil aviation, flimsy wood and canvas biplanes and triplanes gave way to sleek all-metal monoplanes. The lumbering "land ships" of WW1 were replaced by maneuverable tanks and armoured cars. In this GB, anything that was developed and operated between 1919 and 1939 (but not WW2) is fair game.
    Runs from 10 August 2019 to 17 November 2019.

  • Group Build 9: The Cold War
    The Cold War was a period of global tension that extended from March 1947 to December 1991. Whilst it never escalated to an all-out confrontation between East and West, the 45 years it lasted encompassed many conflicts around the globe. Plenty of wars to choose from … Korean, Vietnam, Six Day, India-Pakistan, right up to and including the Gulf War … as well as numerous smaller but no less significant incidents. Feel free to explore all the options … aircraft, AFVs, naval vessels, rockets and missiles, troops, etc.
    Runs from 1 February to 31 July 2019.

  • Group Build 8: Centenary of the RAF
    To celebrate the Centenary of the Royal Air Force, welcome to our first year-long Group Build. With the amalgamation of the Royal Flying Corps and Royal Naval Air Service on 1 April 1918, the RAF is the oldest air force on the planet, so there is plenty of scope in the Build. Anything RAF-related goes … aircraft, vehicles, boats, personnel, you name it.
    Runs from 1 January to 31 December 2018.
