For starters, this set of galleries is but an experiment...a bit of fun.
Brickie thought of this as a Group Build, but it didn't seem to fit Group Build criteria, so we've created this little bit of cyberspace for the idea to be played with.

Second, as with all other galleries, only images of models built within the UAMF forums are permitted and each image must have a link supplied, directing the viewer to the build elsewhere within the UAMF.
Any image without an appropriate link will be deleted from the gallery.

Finally, we are not concerned with the country of origin of the subject. Neither are we concerned with whatever letter of the alphabet the subject's name begins with.
All we want are examples of subjects showing some insignia, representing countries beginning with A through to Z.

I have listed countries in existence today.
Older names of countries no longer in use may be represented. For example, Rhodesia and Persia, Siam, Taiwan and Zaire.

Regards,
Bruce

Already, I've come across potential controversy...
Germany is listed under G, because that's all there is today.
Of course, not so long ago, there was East Germany and West Germany, or the German Democratic Republic of Germany and the Federal Democratic Republic.

So the one country could appear under E, F and G.

Regards,
Bruce

Don't think it's a war-stopper, Bruce....the guidelines just need to make it clear whether former nations that are no longer nations or that have been reroled are OK, and then what the accepted name for that nation is...e.g. East Germany v DDR, whether Russia also subsumes the USSR, etc. This would bring in ones like Yugoslavia, Rhodesia, Czechovslovakia, etc...
