Gliders and tugs GB ? 1 more needed .At 31 now !!.


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

It just hit me that, IIRC,there has never been a glider GB + tugs.

Also gliders converted to powered . 

 

I know that the possible builds are limited . Some WW-2 and modern gliders from Revell.

But that might just be the good thing about this GB.

 

So,who would be tempted ?

Interesting! I would think about doing a Slingsby Sedbergh TX Mk.1 or similar.

I am interested. I have got a 1/35 Horsa and a German DFS glider somewhere hidden away. 😎

 

Cheers,

Depending on timing, I already have a Sterling Mk.IV and Horsa and I also have a Zwilling (I've already built the Gigant)

Yes please - quite a few gliders in the stash to choose from, mostly resin stuff in 1/72.

Would this include target tugs too?

This would be interesting. I have a Planet Models 1/48 Baker-McMillen Cadet II that would fit just fine.

 

Oh, and a Welsh Models 1/144 Douglas XCG-17

:thumbsup:

Why not.

 

Glider and target tugs.

Basicly ANY type of aircraft tug

I have the Contrail Hamilcar and the Valom Albemarle, it would be just plain rude not to join.

 

Permission to come aboard sir !

Scalemates tells me I've got 24 unbuilt glider kits in my stash, mostly Slingsby and RAF Grob types, so depending on timing, I should be up for this.

This is an interesting theme being naturally limited by available glider kits and relative ease of build (not much AMS possible 😎 ).

I have a few suitable british subjects in my stash so I would definitely join!

Hi @Whirly

 

Don't forget this GB includes tugs, so there's lots of options available as diverse as

Short Stirling, Me110, Dakota, to name but a few

Its actually a chance to do a bit of research into what aircraft were utilised as tugs and build something very different of an old favourite in different clothing !

@Erwin, apologies for the outburst of enthusiasm :sorry:

 

Cheers Pat

Thanks for reminding Jockney: actually it was an attempt to convince myself I can actually complete one or even two builds in the given time frame 😜

Excellent we will put you down for two then, so that's the He111-Z and the Me321 😂

 

Cheers Pat
