Prototypes, Racers, Research, Record breakers, Special schemes megaGB.


Recommended Posts

A PRRRS GB for short. An excuse to cover all the colourful subjects we can think of together in a reaction to these grey, dull, and drab times.

Some time ago @trickyrichcame up with the idea of mixing a small group of diverse but associated subjects together in a meta-GB so how about these as a group of ingredients to have some fun with?

Cheers, I briefly thought about doing Miss Demeanour in 1/72 but then reality smacked me round the back of the head! No idea yet what I would build but I've certainly got lots more prototypes as well as research/development types and Raspberry Ripples in the stash.

Raspberry Ripples :wub:  by no means an easy scheme to paint but the result always looks gorgeous.

Excellent! Hopefully this GB will provide an opportunity for motorsports modellers to join in the fun :)

Yep. I have some old Testors 1/48 racing planes plus the red Macchi floatplane with the contra-rotating props. Long since time that I tried building them.
