3 Squadron RAAF 100th Anniversary Group Build, anyone?

Postby DesTROYer » Mon Jun 06, 2016 6:12 pm

"100 years ago, on 10 July 1916, Lieutenant James Brake became the first man to “sign-on” for the Australian Flying Corps unit that would eventually be renamed 3rd Squadron." from the RAAF 3 Squadron Association website.

Next month on July 10 will be the 100 year anniversary of the formation of 3 Squadron RAAF. I was thinking that it's been a while since I last saw a group build here and what better excuse to have one than the Centenary of a Squadron.

What I propose is any scale, any plane, as long as it was flown and is presented in the livery of 3 Squadron. Who's interested? We can kick off on the 1st of July and builds can continue for the rest of the year. Why stop at only one. The more the merrier.

Here is some inspiration.

I will be in for something, I just need to review my stock of decals to see what I can build out of them.
