  1. Not sure if this is the right place to list an idea for a group build ( if it’s not could I kindly ask the mods to move it to the right place) but here goes. Sopwith Aviation was founded in 1912 and pretty active prior to WWI going on to produce iconic fighters like the Camel. In 1920 they went in to voluntary liquidation. That same year Tom Sopwith and Harry Hawker founded the Hawker aircraft company, having purchased all the Sopwith assets and paid off all the creditors. in 1935 Hawker acquired Gloster who continued to trade under their own name releasing the Gladiator that same year. Then in 1936 they merged with Siddley who also owned Armstrong Withworth and AVRO, to form Hawker Siddley. In 1945 they acquired AVRO Canada. 1952 they acquired the remnants of the Bristol engine company and De Havilland and Folland. Then finally they were incorporated into British Aerospace. As part of the proposal, only post merger aircraft would count, so for example the Gauntlet would not but the Gladiater would. So if you follow the time line through you get a large slice of British aviation with the Sopwith heritage as the linking theme. Starting with Sopwith naval aircraft including the hurricane and on to the Harrier. Actually my only niggle is it may be too broad and maybe Sopwith on its own would be enough for a good GB. Just checked my references and including one offs and prototypes Sopwith on their own comprises about thirty types. On @dnl42a suggestion it might be a good idea to keep it to the main Sopwith/Hawker/Hawker Siddley line otherwise it sort of becomes becomes British aircraft 1912 to 1970 .
