I would be very interested in joining this GB, contributing a Boulton Paul Defiant to the mix.

OH! Yes :) You are very welcome Paul.

The old Airfix Defiant was the first kit I ever built - the plastic was black, but by the time I finished gluing it together, I'm convinced the kit was white ...

In the mists of time i actually entered one of these into the Model Engineers Exhibition competitions. Fortunately, in hindsight, the package didn't withstand the rigours of Royal Mail so the viewing public were saved from scrutinising a badly constructed kit, badly painted. 

 

My entry to the GB will be 1:48, i have both Classic Airframes and Airfix kits.

Either would be good to see built (I do have a soft spot for the Defiant ;) )

Both would be better as Enzo is known to say :D

As an ex crab I’ll join in with this GB if you’ll have me. Not sure about aircraft type yet but it’ll be 1/48 or 1/32. Looks like a good excuse to buy more plastic!

"The Kiwis"

Dave, I've signed up for this build but only just discovered your "Colonial Contribution" idea and just wanted to say that being a Kiwi - albeit a very long way from home - I'll be contributing with a Spitfire IIa flown by 485(NZ) Sqn ;)

 

Cheers and a great idea for the Commonwealth members,

 

Tim
