Yes, if you have a shortwave radio receiver, you can listen in on frequencies 5000 kHz, 10000 kHz, and 15000 kHz to listen to the atomic clock broadcast of UCT. I used to use that to set my watch as needed. Something you learn as a commo guy on radio watch from the old hands…
And as far as UCT vs. Zulu time, Zulu just sounds more badass! :ballbat:

Sweet! Gives me plenty time to find something I've never done in case I'm in no mood to build what's in my current stash.

One suggestion: Matchbox Noorduyn Norseman in 1/72 scale. The floatplane version is for a civilian Canadian bush plane:

I'm building one now. You should be able to find one; maybe one of the links provided in another thread showing sellers will have one.

Dammit, I wish I saw this post earlier... I already picked up my kit for the GB... I think I may do one anyway at some point.
I chose the Minicraft Beechcraft Bonanza V35A. Looks like a fun simple kit, and its civi, so I can't complain.

Also may I make a suggestion? Should there be an official name for the GB, I suggest calling it "Never have I ever" because that is basically the game we are all playing with the GB.

I’ll come up with a name when I post the three for the GB in a couple of weeks.

Awwh nuts, I thought it was anything you never built before :headbang:
Oh well back to the ole modern bomber thing. We're having our show up here on the 9th.

Maybe I can find something in a modern bomber size.
Building a kit from your stash is like cutting the head off a Hydra, two more take it’s place.
