STOP! If you’re looking for buses, I’m afraid this is the wrong thread for you. If you like multi-winged flying things, read on. I am a little bashful at proposing a group build, partly because as a proposer I will be expected to host the thing if it gets through the ritual bunfight. Let me, nonetheless, set out my stall. Since I joined Britmodeller, I’ve noticed a few of us show some reticence where models of aeroplanes with more than one set of wings are concerned. Rigging seems to put people off, perhaps understandably. However, like many of you, I find I do have several biplane kits in my stash - 10 at the present time, ranging from a humble Tiger Moth to a Supermarine Stranraer - and they need to be built. I intend to rig them, too, or end up in the loony bin trying! Now, the thought of rigging doesn’t particularly worry me. Getting upper wings installed so everything’s all aligned, though, is another matter. Part of the GB's remit, then, could be to help those of us who do find the idea of multi-winged machines a little daunting. What better way to show techniques for jig-building to keep wings aligned, and to show different rigging methods, for example? There we are. That’s my proposal for a group build specialising in bi-, tri- and any other number as long as it’s more than one winged aircraft. What do you think? Up for it? Add your name and we'll see if this idea has - ho-ho! - wings! Heather Kay Tony W Wez Corsairfoxfouruncle Arniec Faraway zebra HockeyBoy76 Black Knight nimrod54 modelling minion Cookenbacher Col.

There’s still room for more, but we can relax a bit now and wait for the big bunfight in November.
