Hi folks,

Here are the Rules of the "Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda" Group Build:
  • Have Fun!!!
  • The basic idea behind this GB is where you take a standard selection or action decision and instead look at what the alternatives were.  For instance, instead of RAAF F/A-18s you have RAAF F-16s or F-15s or Mirage 2000s or....  This could be done for aircraft, land platforms, ships or even civilian systems (e.g. Police cars).  It could even look at major decision points - e.g. what if instead of developing the Space Shuttle, NASA was directed instead to colonise the Moon? Any medium is permissible - so physical models, pixels/profiles and stories (and anything else if you can think of it) are all welcome.
  • Creativity encouraged as is collaboration.
  • Duration is 1 Jul - 30 Aug 2013 15 Sep 2013.  An extension may be granted, but only a short one and only if the Moderator (me) feels like it...bribes welcomed in this regard! 8)
  • Projects already started prior to the offical start date may be considered for inclusion but only if minimal work has been done - this will be judged on a case by case basis.  Please send details of any particular cases to me for determination of eligibility.
  • There will be prizes! Physical creations and pixels/stories will be judged separately.
  • There will also be a vote fro the best overall contribution to the theme...regardless of medium.
  • Any questions are to be directed to the Moderator (me again!).
  • See rule 1...IT'S NOT NEGOTIABLE!!!

Regards,

Greg

Well you should be able to justify your choice...and there should be some basis in reality whereby you can say that at a certain point there was a decision point which, if an alternate choice was made, you would result in where your entry results.

I might have a pop at the Fleet Air Arm Grummans in EDSG over Sky/White. I've got a Panther and a Tiger, but Cougars are hard to come by : there's only the out-of-production Hasegawa kit and it's whether one pops up on ebay or not....

I've got a F-14D partially done (WIP since the early 90s) EDSG over white, may be a good time to try and finish it.  I can actually see the floor in what will be my work shop too things are looking up.

Actually, I've really GOT to do at least the Panther, looking at the forum title they've given me..... ;D

I "might" even get off my arase and finished the idea I had for the after '46 GB .  I dug out all the stuff two months ago but that was as far as it got.  This does sound like fun,though...

One of four polish F-35's as a successor of F-16 received just before 2nd Cold War in 2030 is acceptable? :)
