  1. I had an idea for a potential GB last night and thought I'd put these words down to see what others might think? Now I trust that we all remember what year we were born - right?? Well then how about a Group Build to celebrate that particular year in model form. There are endless opportunities and it's not just limited to Aircraft! Here's an example - I was born in the year 1970. I can choose to build a model that perhaps first appeared in that year (say Airfix Meteor III, Chipmunk or Ford Capri, Frog Vengeance, Wyvern, Meteor IV etc.) or perhaps something that was specific to that year (RAAF Canberra on duty during the Vietnam War, new RAF Harrier GR.1, or perhaps the late Jochim Rindt's Championship winning Lotus 72). To keep a little bit of fun happening whilst also giving us a wee history lesson, each Gallery entry could also list five history defining moments that occurred that year - (1970 - deaths of Jim Morrison, Jimmi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Beatles split, Apollo 13, first 747 commercial flight etc.). Anyway - just thought I'd put it out there to see if this crazy idea gains any traction. Cheers.. Dave *Note - Multiple years for multiple members will be happily accepted.
