Excellent!! Its bright yellow nastiness has been calling me for a while now, and all those rivets too...

Was thinking of a Norwegian scheme for it, but could be persuaded otherwise... will get thinking!!

Looking forward to it!

In fact, having thought about it I have a plethora of unusual trainers and drones lurking around, so as well as the Harvard maybe one of the following, but I don't want to overstretch myself...

KP CS-199

Bucker Bu-181

Bucker Bu-131

T-28 Fennec

North American 0-47

Any of those sound appealing...

OHHH Yes. NIce!!!!

And welcome to the GB and VERY much look forward to seeing this done. It will be a fitting tribute to the late Mr Eakin the designer and producer of the kit.

Also welcome to Foxbat and the pureness.

Hmm...perusing the spreadsheet with my stash on it, it appears I have the following kits which would be suitable:

A-10 trainer 1/48

Avro 504K 1/48

Folland Gnat 1/72 and 1/48

Harvard 1/72

Hawk 1/48 and 1/32

Jet Provost T3 1/48

Meteor T7 1/72

MiG 29UB 1/32

Starfighter TF-104 1/144 and 1/48

Tiger Moth 1/32

It's just a matter of whether I'll have the time to do any of them - got a busy time at work coming up over the next few months. If not, I have an idea for a Deanflyer Special which would fit in with the theme, but not sure it would be a neat fit into any of the categories already outlined...wait and see. :whistle:

Cheers,

Dean

Hi Chaps,

I'm looking at a Revell 1/72 Fairey Gannet T.5. It would be built as a part of 849 Naval Air Squadron. Is this eligible?

Rob.

Hi Bobster, Just seen this:

A new decal sheet for the Gannet and has an Australian T5 to consider if you don't fancy all that dayglo!!!

I won't be able to join this GB, but I hope see to at least one Harvard.

During the war, Ottawa, my home, had a flying school. My mum who was a teenager at the time told me that there were always trainers flying over. They were bright yellow, and the Harvards had a very distinctive sound. She told me that one of her neighbours painted their garage bright yellow and painted roundels on the doors.

It has been said that for many Canadians, when recalling the war, they think not of Spitfires or Hurricanes, but of the Harvards. The British Commonwealth Air Training Plan had flying schools all over Canada. It was said by Winston Churchill, I think, that Canada was the "Aerodrome of Democracy."

Good luck, everyone.

I had not signed in as interested, but I might take part in this one. While I might start my Aeroclub 1/72 G.91T, I'm not sure I will have the time to tackle a vacform fuselage so I might take an easier route and build the revell/italeri Hawk in ETPS markings

I have a kit of the all-black Jaguar T.4 in 6 Squadron markings used as an instructional airframe by the Defence College of Aeronautical Engineering, would that be eligible?

just a thought how about a topgun a4e not planning it but just as a question

Will have to think about this but I feel its a bit doubtful. What do you think Enzo?

A quick stash throws up 1/72 Vampire T55 Swedish Air Force, MiG 29UB, Meteor T7 or Jag T2. Otherwise, it's a 1/48 Hawk T1, fancy the Spithawk scheme.

The primary role of the aircraft is as a combat aircraft. It doesn't count for this build even though it's with a training unit.

Same principle would apply to Harrier GR.1s on the OCU.

Sorry... :fraidnot:

I got a "like" from you Enzo, but I wasn't sure if you were just impressed by my chutzpah, or if mine was okay.

Well... it's a two-seater trainer depicted as serving with a training unit. Okay... it's carrying squadron markings, but you've proved its role. Basically it's the modern equivalent of CliffB's Roleur. All sounds good to me. :thumbsup:

It's just a shame it's not carrying a maintenance serial.
