I would like to partake if I may?  Adds to my Aces of the FAA Theme that is currently underway, I have a range in the stash to choose from, which I may take the opportunity to expand before the GB...  BTW is the RNAS included?

Does this include the Royal Marines and US Marine Corps at all?  :hmmm:

 

Otherwise we're pretty much limited to Japanese and Russian on the AFV front IIRC.  :unsure:

Royal Marines are part of the RN, so they should be included.

 

BTW, put me down for this one please.

Good show.....This GB has massive potential, don't the various navies of the world launch the odd space rocket too?  :hmmm:

 

Actually pushing things a bit, could we include sci-fi space navies too.....It would be great to have a GB the sci-fi builders could join with their preferred subjects (and we have some really rather good sci-fi modellers hereabouts).  I wouldn't mind seeing the Galactica or a Star Destroyer alongside my Ekranoplan, LCAC or RMSG Centaur.....Just a thought.  :coolio: 

 

PS - I really want a 1/72 Ekranoplan A-90.....Amodel, are you listening?  :pray:

Hmmm, sarge that's a thought provoking question! And I am not sure what to say... I will think, or in fact if anyone else has an opinion?? (Not that I have anything against sci-fi, just not sure how to manage that aspect) 

 

from an amour our point of view I wanted to try and include that so that's why I went for anything that is under the control of the navy.... so land forces, special forces the whole 9 yards

 

Everyone else i will pop your names on the list when I get a mo, cheers for responding!

Technically speaking, isn't the definition of "navy" as a branch of the military that conducts operations at sea.  I'll be more inclined to think sci-fi is more to do with outer space and don't think the word navy was mentioned in Star Trek, Star Wars etc.  Also, if we start introducing the word "fiction" - does that mean fictional navies could be included too from computer games for instance...

Well, the USS Enterprise is definitely not an aircraft or a tank... Even in Star Trek 😁

I have considered the above and decided to keep this to real navies, are the good Sgt said himself there is great scope in this GB and some navies have built some pretty crazy stuff! In fact I could challenge people to find some of the craziest stuff they can... as long as it was built and used by a real life navy... I just feel the GB would have ended up way too broad.... sorry.

 

the above have been added, apart from V-P as you didn't specify... come on in mate the waters lovely!

Given the vast majority of my stash is Fleet Air Arm subjects I'd be foolish to miss this one. Please add me to the list Rob :)

Not sure how I missed this one but count me in please. There's plenty of WW2 FAA stuff in the stash to choose from.

Another one to be counted in. As my stash is heavily FAA there is an obvious start. Though as 825 junior plays American Football for the Portsmouth Destroyers and it's a long time since I built a ship, the idea of building a Portsmouth based RN destroyer is beguiling.
