The Cold War - General Discussion

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.

Mike, I'd be happy to transfer the thread lock, stock and barrel. At the moment, I am on my mobile so, when next on a PC, I will do this for you.

And the deadline? 31 July.

UPDATE 7/2 (or 2/7 for our American friends): Moved! ;)

Has there been any discussion on what will follow the Cold War GB? I guess July is not that far off. Oh and a shout out of appreciation for Smeg looking after this GB - Well done that Man!

Smeg appreciates these plaudits. All donations can be made into bank account number .... :twisted:

Certainly open to some advanced planning as we will hit July before we know it. Indeed, when we set up the thread that eventually lead to GB9 being the Cold War, there was lots of interesting feedback on possibilities and, if we go with more restrictive options, discussion on the viability of concurrent group builds. Which, to remind everyone, was what we did with the biplane/triplane GB and the Vietnam War GB.

So that it doesn't get lost in that thread however, I have set up a new thread for GB10 (and possibly 11). Once we're established and have enough options, I can set up a poll like I did for GB9. ;)

Just a brief reminder that we are about to enter the last month of the Cold War GB (says he, looking at his still-only-primed Super Sabre). Deadline is the 31st of July.

And beyond, don't forget to start thinking about a theme for GB10 (and maybe GB11, if we decide to run two builds simultaneously). The conversation has already started ...

As we're now past the deadline, I will be locking the topic soon. Last chance to finalise your builds (says he, knowing the Hun is destined to reappear on the dreaded Shelf of Shame).

I’m not going to get the missiles finished I’m afraid. I’ve finished all the Russian ones now but hit the sand on the US land-based ones.

Locked
