Knights of the Sky
The holder of this award is known to have stayed the course to sweep all competition from the field. That the project that had laid unfinished is done. The inprogress build was completed and the new project was daringly accomplished.

Operational Overview
Historically Group Builds help the individual modeler & the community as a whole.
A. It usually provides information that one modeler knows but another may not.
B. Campaign ribbons are a mark of participation.
C. The modeler has a chance to push or stretch their talents and improve skills.

This GB will give everyone a chance to clear their desks and finish projects on building boards and in the stacks of all partially built or inprogress builds and even start new projects. But more than a GB I want to put you and your builds up to the manufacturers. This will show them your works so they can add them to their website, Facebook and etc locations. I will ask them for their input see if we can get them to step up with awards of their own. There are no garuantees to this.

Campaign Debriefing
Wow! a year and a day. 16 awards, 34 builds for our small genre is impressive folks. Already others are asking when will we do our next GB. I know I have been amazed and have learned a thing or two or three about building. Even during the hard personal times we could come here and find comradarie. The sun is bright and as we come to the end of this campaign I can report it has been more than successful. JackFlash out bound at Angels 3 with a wingover salute to all participants. To the next operation / Mission.
