There are enough aircraft based GB's already on the go; in fact the majority of all GB's are aircraft so please allow us ship modellers the pleasure of having a ship related GB. I have noticed in the past that, no matter what the initial subject, someone always wants to push the boundaries. If not then I vote the title is changed to shipbuilding GB.

Mike

Hi Mike, I wasn't looking to push any boundaries, the suggestion came from snapper_city. My comment was a rather tongue in cheek reposte to Pin's statement that flying boats aren't ships - they are in the eyes of the law when they're on water. However, I do agree that there's plenty GB's for wingy things and not enough floaty things. I supported the Titanic group build, and I'll support this one if it gets launched and I'm not away earing a crust on the briney :captain:

Hi Dave, thanks for clarifying; it can be difficult to get the intention of a chat when it's textual - we can't see the body language, which would have shown this to be meant to be light-hearted. Apologies for my own reposte and let's hope this GB gets enough members and votes to become a reality.

Me too! Went through a phase of buying floaty things and need a reason to build them.

I've got a loft load if ship kits, so it would be rude not to sign up for this GB. :D

If submarines are in I'll add to Whitestar's flotilla.

Regarding the scope stretch how about a ditched B-17 with the crew waiting on the wings :clown:

I will join too please!

Got plenty to do, resin and plastic, and not averse to doing a scratchbuild either.

Hope we get to the vote!

If it gets of the ground (lol) I would be up for it. Never built anything that floats, but I have HMS Belfast in the stash which could do with being built up, and this would be a fine excuse.

Oh this could be the excuse to finally build my Airfix Rescue Launch, lots of people have the MTB and e boats as well, and being in 1/72 unlike some of you building 1/700 I will be able to see it !

Cheers Pat

I know I'll regret this as I don't think I've ever completed a "boat" :P model in all my life, but I have a rather large one for which I need an excuse for to build. It's taking up way too much room in the stash and is eating into hiding spaces! :whistle:

So I guess you can count me in as well, will be bringing along a Merit 1/72nd Osa Missile boat! :doh:

Ok, count me in. Something from Airfix in 1/72 probably. Or my Revell PT boat.

Fingers crossed for the vote.
