Many of you may of read elsewhere on BM that Merv Milliken (Spike 7451) passed away from Leukaemia today.

Merv as well as being a long standing member of BM had an encyclopaedic knowledge of all thing Tornado having worked with them and their armoury for many years in the RAF.

Merv would always share his knowledge with anyone who wanted to know anything about the Tornado.

Back in 2011 Merv hosted the Tornado STGB HERE

I think it would be a fitting tribute to Merv's memory to run a Tornado STGB II

Now this is a big ask. I as the GB Moderator know that the STGB calender is full till the end of 2016 but I wouldn't want to wait that long for a GB to come around. So with your permission and support I would like to organise and set this up earlier rather than later.

Also I would like to use the GB to raise money though a donations direct to the RAF Benevolent Fund.

Please feel free to discuss.

An excellent idea and more than fitting tribute - count me in.

The news has left me rather numb and I maybe acting impulsively.

I'm hoping the collective wisdom on BM will comment accordingly.

Yes it would be a fitting and sensitive tribute Mish, hopefully will attract more support.

I'm in, really enjoyed the last Tonka GB, not least due to the fact that Merv's hosting and invaluable insight helped with all the builds!

Modelling time has been rare for me lately but I'd make the effort for this one. A fitting way that we could pay our respects.

Mish I think that this is a wonderful idea, and normally I would join. But the timing is not right as I am finishing a Tornado at the moment and would not like to start another. Good luck with the GB as I know it will succeed.

The Tornado GB was one of my first GB on Britmodeller and Merv was a big help in making me feel at ease and welcome.I'd happily build another as a tribute to him.
Count me in.
