A build (almost) anything GB?
Probably pushing the limits of generality?


OK, I'm in.  No idea what I'll build - or too many ideas.  I'll work something out later.
 

Predict this gets the no 2 slot in the bun fight (your bombers build gets no 1)

Go on then

I've got plenty of F1 and rally cars to go at ūüėĀ

Cool! Hopefully this GB will give us a chance to feature some colourful and different subjects :) In the meantime the Africa GB coming soon is also a potential venue for rally and F1 subjects ;)

In reality I'm hoping that by combining these subjects it'll produce a GB with plenty of scope colourful and uncommon models :) 

Liking the sound of your prediction :D

I'd love to join. With an inter-war record breaker I think. Safe option would be the FROG/NOVO Bristol 138, but I might be tempted to build something a bit more obscure.

 

Regards,

Adrian

Your Bristol 138 is a lovely option Adrian but something more obscure is also welcome :)

Several good options there even though I'm not used to seeing you work from a kit! :lol:

Finally, an excuse to build the 1990 Heller kit of the Rafale Demonstrateur. Or the Airfix P.1127. Or the KP Convair XFY-1 'Pogo Stick'. Or the Tamiya Bell X-1. Or the Hobbycraft CF1-05 Arrow. Or maybe the DH 88 Comet Racer (Frog > Airfix). Or the Fujimi Spitfire XIV (King's Cup Race version). Or the Matchbox Wellesley (LRDU version).

 

I'm sure I have plenty of jets with special scheme options, although they are not usually my cup of tea. I guess I could make an exception.

 

Would aircraft used for research on something other than their own design count? I'm thinking of the likes of the Airfix U-2, specifically the NASA option.

All of those are great options for aviation subjects across the various categories within our GB :thumbsup:

Yes, absolutely, subjects such as the U-2 and various other types used by NASA for research purposes are good. Same with the various CCV types such as the ACT Jaguar, specially configured F-104 and F-16, VAAC Harrier etc.

Anyone else want to join in this one? There's plenty opportunities for unusual and colourful subjects :)

Bump time since the best part of a week has passed with no activity in this thread :bounce:

There's a high potential for colourful subjects here in both military and civilian guise. Everything from Reno racers to airshow special schemes, Formula 1 and rally cars, Paris-Dakar and Moto GP bikes, rockets and submarines, the list is wide-ranging.
