Hello One and all... We have all heard of them and seen them. I checked and couldn't find anything like this before ? The closest was the record breakers group build a number of years ago. Anyone interested in a Group build that would cover 100 + years of Aviation, Automotive, and centuries of maritime. From the Cleveland and Schneider cup races of the 20's - 30's & 40's. To the Bendix races of the 50's and 60's. All the way up to todays unlimited highly modified WW2 thoroughbreds of Reno ! This would cover Bi-planes, floatplanes, one off civilian racers, jets, and of course completely modified warbirds. I would also allow for paper projects as well. There were plenty of aircraft that were designed for racing but never got past the drawing board. Either because of funding or war. You could do the Supermarines and Macchi's of the Historical Schneider cup's. Then there are the Gee Bee's of the Cleveland races. The famous Caudron racers of the 1930's would make wonderful additions. There are great ideas here for a start. So if anyone is interested please jump up and say so. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_racing https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/America's_Cup https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thames_Sailing_Barge_Match https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auto_racing#Other_categories I am adding auto and maritime racing seeing there is interest in it. So this would now include F1, LeMans, Indy-series, Nascar, NHRA drag racing, Baja, and Rally. There is the Americas cup and a whole host of sailing and powerboat type racing as well. If anyone can think of something please let me know ? I have nothing against the idea of aircraft or boats or cars being built in fictitious schemes. These often change sponsorships and colors so anything is possible. If you want to build a Whif of a racer that is something i would consider as well ? Provided it was at least in the realm of possibility. Say an Bf.109, a Spitfire, a Zero or even maybe an F-86 ? As I am including Cars, boats, Aviation, and Whif's i will break it down at the end when i set up the gallery voting poll. Standard build rules will apply. No builds starting with more than 25% will be allowed in the gallery. You're welcome to work on them in unison with another build. All A/market will be allowed. There will be no restrictions on materials, so vacuform, resin, wood and whatever other materials you can work with will be allowed. No sales or trading openly here in the build threads. Please use the proper area of the forum for that. And of course above all else, please have fun if this makes it. Oh and if anyone has any interest in co-hosting I'm taking applications. 1) corsairfoxfouruncle 2) Bengalensis 3) helios16v 4) vppelt68 5) Angus Tura 6) Brad 7) uncletommy 8.
