Hi folk's I could go mad posting previous builds fitting the GB's timescale but since I'm building the F-86 Sabre I'll content myself with a few builds of that Aircraft.

Heller Sabre RNoAF.

        I have so many that would fit this category. Sadly most are in storage but found this set of photo’s while looking for something else. It is my 1st ever 1/48 Monogram promodeller Sabredog. My 1st ever foil finish and it represents the 85th F.I.S. based at Scott Air Force Base Illinois circa 1953-54.

For @heloman1, Revell Hunter converted to a GA11

Revell-Hunter-GA11-001.jpg

Revell-Hunter-GA11-002.jpg

And I'm likely to join this GB with a Revell RAF Hunter FGA9.

 

And for @Jb65rams, and @PhantomBigStu  two copies of the Revell Scorpion.

Then for @UberDaveToo, my Italeri Hustler.

Here's my go at the Heller Caravelle. Produced contemporary with the introduction of the aircraft itself, this was Heller's very first venture in plastic kit making. This was a Ltd edition reissue, the box artwork and even the instructions were a facsimile of the original. 

It's in 1.100 scale so a good deal bigger than the Airfix types.

Decorated as the 2nd prototype with the Sud logo on the tail, this airframe clocked up many miles promoting the type around the world

I really want to participate in this GB, but being co-host over at the Frog GB may take some time away. I’ll see how I go, however there’s a number of great builds and subjects above that are really inspiring me. Here’s a small collection of my ‘Baby Boomer’ generation builds. 

Cheers and have a great GB.. Dave

Introduced in 1951; a pair of BR Class 5 4-6-0 locomotives:

20240223_201003

Built many years ago (1980s ??) from DJH kits (soldered construction - mainly whitemetal with brass cab and tender sides etc.) with coreless Portescap motors and Romford wheels (and YES they do work!!).  Without looking up my records, I'm not sure if they got converted to DCC.

 

Both are examples of those operated on BR (Southern Region) and named after former King Arthur Class locos (73117 Vivien, 73119 Elaine).  If you are "in the know" you will realise that both have a BR1B tender but should have a BR1F tender, but those tenders were not available at the time of building. I do however have a full kit with the correct tender in the Railway Stash but am not sure if there is sufficient time / motivation to build it in this GB.
