The thought struck me that while we have a very varied and interesting pool of GBs for the Bunfight and 2023 we don’t have many single type proposals so having just completed a Jug for the monogram Gb I’ve quite warmed to the type and wouldn’t mind adding a razor back to keep butch company. Operated by no less than twenty one nations with over fifteen thousand built there is no end to the variety of schemes out there.

Well, coincidentally, I've been thinking of adding a Tamiya bubbletop to keep my razorback company! So I'll be happy to slot in as your No.2..

Good evening Marklo

Very good idea ;..I have a few Tamiya kits in my stash and I can hear them screaming at me "Build me build me !!!"

Best Regards

If my model room is back in working order when this GB pops off, I'll jump in.   Right in the middle of starting phase 2 of the house remodel which includes the model room.

Sorry Bob, I’m going to be harsh and say no as then it becomes a general Severesky/republic GB needs more members to get to the bunfight and if I remember correctly ( which I do some of  the time :) ) was proposed last year and didn’t make it.

That’s going to be a big bus. Maybe put it in the garden as an annex :)

Thats my Dream kit, and I do hope to get one someday. Of course I’ll have to rob a bank, train, and a mint to even consider it. There is an added benefit of committing all the above mentioned crimes. They would at least allow me enough extra $ to build a house big enough to display the finished kit.

This one has to get through the bunfight; just think, we could legitimately make jokes about big jugs for months!

I can’t but agree. But I’m going to make a model of little Willie for the prototypes GB and I think for pure comedic opportunity that one is going to win. Mind I got a lot of mileage out of my Snark and my Gamecock which I do need to whip out and repair.

I realise in all my years of modelling I have not built a P-47. Count me in for an RAF SEAC 1/72 Thunderbolt.
 

Despite my appalling completion rate I’m always keen to sign on and attempt to hopefully get something built…
