We have a wide variety of subject in the gallery to-date :nod: , all great efforts :thumb: , from all those that have submitted :clapping:
I am pleased to say that there is still more to come, more to look forward to.
Thanks to those who have finished already, it makes the GB all the worth while . . .

Its great that you finished all of them. I particularly like the ambulance, where did you get the Red Cross emblems from I wonder ??
I also think the hoops on the Standard are all pretty much alike so your technique must be good.

Well done Ian and thanks for contributing so many :thumb:

The Red Cross emblems? IIRC Mike Grant did them for me when I made my Trux Fordson WOT1 Ambulance.

A great collection Jim and nicely presented. :clapping:

I do like the red cycle, Cpl Mackintosh brought his own from home . . . . :rotfl:

Well done for completing before the deadline and contributing to our successful GB :nod:

Thanks, not my usual fare in that I am exclusively a aircraft builder but it was fun to do something different, my lack of knowledge of the subject matter was a factor I think.

:wow: The group builders have been busy while I wasn't looking! What a great set of builds. I love the tankers and refuellers, all very nicely done (let's hope for an albion refueller in 1/72 as well) and the work with the bomber resupply sets is great. I thought I'd "done" that set but there are so many other options :clapping:
