As I explained at https://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php?topic=4461.2940
I made a web site of mine instead of an item for here, and I even did it before the start of this GB.
No problem, it was fun, simply elsewhere.

Gentlemen,

This group build has now officially started.


Good luck to all. We're looking forward to seeing your entries.

So, a transport aircraft specially prepared for paratroops jumping is acceptable? Similarly, a helicopter used to put troops behind enemy lines?

Rule 2 applies, Mr Maniac.

^^^^^ It is not clear for me... do you mean I have to PM Mods?  ;D  ;D

My point is: they transport troops (sure), but (in a certain way :-\ ) this transport is part of the combat ... IMO logistics is not usually part of combat.

Mr. Maniac,

Rule two states that in a military context the transport of persons/troops is included. Whether that is into combat or well away from the front does not matter.
The emphasis however should be on the transport role ons not a combat role. So a transport helicopter for either para troops or ground combat troops is perfectly all right. The same helicopter with a gun for self defence is also all right.
A helicopter gunship carrying just one or two troopers I would qualify as not being all right as the primary purpose would be combat and not transport.

Hope this clarifies things for you.

I hope it's as good as mine.  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Kinda funny that you guys are having this Logistics GB now. It's reminded me of an upcoming model contest in about 4 months near me where the main theme of that show is "Utility & Transport".  ;D
Modeling isn't just about how good the gluing or painting, etc. looks. It's also about how creative and imaginative you can be with a subject.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

We should flood that contest with our entries here. Whiffing rules!  :wacko:
