Sounds like a plan. Grumman's Panther and Cougar spring to mind. The stash would be able to offer up others. 

 

Grumman’s always make good choices.

@Corsairfoxfouruncle Pretty please sir? Vicker Viscount? prototype flew in 1948 but didn't enter service until 1953; I've the S&M Models -800 in the stash if that's acceptable?

 

Yes the Viscount is good, if it was built and/or operated at some point in the 1950’s it counts.

Mmm, fifties, let me see, Venom, Vampire, Washington, Hastings, Provost, Hunter, Valetta, Sunderland, Anson, Attacker, Sycamore, Whirlwind, Meteor, Swift, Javelin, Valiant, Gannet, Avenger, Auster AOP, Neptune, etc, all sat in the stash, and hopefully the Dora Wings FD2 before long. 

I reckon I am in for this GB

Not my usual era but that means it’ll make me build something different.  It’ll be an excuse to add a Gannet or a Wyvern to my collection so count me in.

 

Oops already signed up. I’m surprised this isn’t getting more traction as it was a period where aviation went through massive change and the more I look the more excited interesting subjects I unearth.

Many interesting prototypes and X-craft in this era make it rich for options.

Count me in - my favourite genre is 1950's aircraft.

 

Such a rich time of experimentation - lots of concepts and no way to prove them other than build it and try.

Welcome aboard … I agree about it being a great time for aviation.
