RAF Centenary GB - The Rules

(1/4) > >>

NARSES2:
1. The GB runs from the 1st July 2018 till midnight of 30th September 2018. Extensions will in all probability be considered when we get nearer to the finish date. 2 week extension granted GB now runs through to midnight on the 14th October 2018.

2.  The G.B. includes anything used by or which could have been used by the R.A.F. including types under evaluation, be it in reality or in your imagination, since its formation on the 1st April 1918 until the present date or indeed, if your crystal ball is up and running, anything it is likely to use in the future. Please note that the R.A.F. has not just used aircraft but in the past has used both armoured vehicles and ships/boats, so who knows what it will use in the future

3. You may also choose to include the Air Forces of nations that have maintained their link to the British Crown. So R.A.A.F; R.C.A.F; R.N.Z.A.F for instance and any other air force that, in your alternative take on history, maintained the link. So Royal Indian A.F for instance or in an extreme example perhaps the dispute of 1775 which led to the birth of the U.S.A. was settled amicably and the Colonies became the first Dominion (or indeed Dominions)?

If you want to say that the R.A.F. maintained separate branches (Naval, Army Co-op, Home Defence, Strategic etc.) then that is fine, but the politics could get even more interesting than in real life ! However they must be part of the R.A.F. you canít say it was never formed or was disbanded at some time in the past or future.

4. The GB welcomes models, profiles and stories and anything else your fertile minds can think of.

5. Models already started are allowed as long as major building work has not started before the GB begins. Check with the Moderator.

7. Finished models and profiles to be posted (with picture and link to build thread) in the finished builds thread within the overall GB thread in this Board. Please do not post comments in the finished builds thread.

8.  Have FUN. 

10. Unusually there will only be one moderator for this G.B.; me. The reason for this ? Well I had a sudden lust for power. No seriously I do have fairly strong views about this G.B. whereas I am normally more than happy to sit back and just watch how things develop and help the moderators and yourselves enjoy the build. Apologies if that upsets anyone and I hope you can still enjoy it and normal service will be resumed for the next build. Also on a practical level it can be difficult to get moderators and I will need two for the V.S.T.O.L whatever build latter in the year (I have two for the Racing G.B.)

So if you need any help or advice, please get in touch with me and Iíll do my best to assist.

11. There is no rule 6, don't EVER ask about rule 6 (O.K. so sometimes itís Rule 7 that doesnít get mentioned, but I felt sorry for it this time around)

What if Royal Scottish Air Force or Royal Saudi Air Force?
Are they allowed?

Maybe if Lawrence had persuaded Ibn Saud to be part of the Commonwealth... :o
OR had taken directly the throne, founding a new dinasty... ;D

As long as you can fit them into this crucial rule "You may also choose to include the Air Forces of nations that have maintained their link to the British Crown".

I think a future Royal Scottish AF is a distinct possibility as long as an independent Scotland retains the Windsor monarchy and doesn't dig up a Stuart from somewhere. The Bonnie Prince was last heard of in Italy. There are some Royal Scottish AF builds on site.

Royal Saudi ? I think that it's pushing it a little to far to be honest as you'd have to monarchs. A Windsor and a member of the House of Saud.

So Scottish ? Yes. Saudi ? No

zenrat:
Just spitballing here but how about if Britain controlled Palestine after WW2 with it being a dominion and eventually an independent nation state and commonwealth member.
Meaning a Royal Palestine Air Force.
Constant acts of terror by zionist revolutionaries make for a similar situation to that in Northern Ireland.
Plus border skirmishes with all the variously aligned neighbours.
