Hey everyone... With just about 6 weeks until the voting starts, I thought I’d post a few shots here for inspiration. Here are a series of warbirds in both civilian and military schemes. First up some classic civilian P-51 Mustang’s used a personal or fast business aircraft in the 1950’s and 60’s. yQGhzD5.jpg

Here is one of these ⬆️ turned into a real show plane. vTaKbF0.jpg

Here is one that Ive been trying to find out more about for years. Its a P-51 warbird from the 1970’s with made up markings but I’ve always liked the way it looked. 06ucZoG.jpg

Its not only P-51’s here is a P-47 Thunderbolt.

Sadly it crashed a few years ago in the Hudson river and the pilot didn't survive. 😢 Enough warbirds lets take a look at some modern military show-offs. Here is a VMA-311 Tomcats AV-8B show-bird. 789ZxxE.jpg

Then there is this South Dakota ANG F-16. C47Dbeq.jpg

And another USMC show-off. An F-18C from VMA-232 Red Devils. uKLjzS9.jpg

I hope these kind of get the ideas flowing. Remember the build rules are open to Whif builds as well. So maybe these inspire sone ideas of a Whif warbird, Show-off, or Racer. Please feel free to ask questions, and or post ideas.

Yes of course, anything that can be raced is included. Raced against others or timed events like rally its all good. I will add you I just saw your edit.

I live just a few miles from Goodwood and often frequent both the FoS and Revival (though not this year!! :sad:) . Re. the latter, I'm always 'chin on floor'  :gobsmacked: when watching such expensive pieces of machinery being ragged around a track as if they're 'ten to a penny'. I once spoke to an owner of a 250 GTO and asked "Why?" He said (I reckon he had a few quid) "because that's what they were built for!" As the kids say; RESPECT!!  :happy:

Looks like it is yet to go through the voting system in the hope of being scheduled, Tony. 

I've only just found it too, thanks to that mention and link on Heller chat.

Put links like the one on the Heller Group chat page anywhere and everywhere else, Dennis! 

It raised the profile for me and Tony. 

We all saw how Wez hustled and banged the drum for Heller GB unceasingly, and what a result!

And keep us posted on the voting system and what we have to do and when, 👍

Poll will open up on November 1st, you can vote for up to nine builds or just this one. At the end of November the top 9 builds will get time slots for next year. I also have the ANZAC group build which is anything to do with Australia and New Zealand

Then I have the everything British armor group build. 

Im in charge of the Republic aircraft section of “The mighty all American Aircraft” group build. That covers Boeing, Douglas/McDonell Douglas, North American, and Republic. Im also trying to get people to sign up for some others you might be interested in.

Woo hooo! 

I've just struck a deal for a "heart's desire" kit that's hard to get hold of. 

One of my all-time favourites. 

And it would fit right in to this group theme. 

But once I have it in my hand I doubt I'll be able to wait for start dates and time slots. 

It's not Heller so it may be shelved for a few weeks, but....... 😎
