You don't frighten us, English pig dogs. Go and boil your bottoms, you sons of a silly person. I blow my nose at you, so-called "Arthur King," you and all your silly English K-nig-hts.

I bet you don’t even know the terminal airspeed velocity of a diving swallow?

I just got a care package from Hannants yesterday. It consisted of a BOAC Canadair Argonaut Engines (w cross-over exhausts) conversion pack from Transport Wings, Lancaster Mk.I/III de Havilland DH 5/40 propellers, and decals for BOAC Canadair C-4 Argonaut (G-ALHK that flew Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh to Kenya). Should this Merlin build get off the runway, I will be converting the Revell DC-4 to a Canadair Argonaut C4 as my entry.

Are there any others interested in bringing some of the more unusual subjects with Merlins to the table and get this build together? The build will be in 2018, so chime in if you want to join in.

An Argonaut would be fantastic entry, Chuck. Look forward to seeing that.

I have a B.P. Baliiol which could be allocated a spot in this

Although the engine is actually named after the raptor bird I would like to see purplethistle do his magic and convert a figure to a wizard Merlin person. Not a cartoon one tho, but a more serious version
We allow one or two 'part started' kits per GB occasionally; why not a fun deviation?

Is it the MPM/Special Hobby kit? I have the Sea Baliol in my stash and would enjoy seeing yours in the build.

Any idea when this might happen, I'd be keen but it'll very much be "when" dependent for me & I should know better really . :roll:

If I can get enough people interested, I will put up a calendar poll and base the date off that. The only thing for sure is that it will be in 2018

Thanks Chuck, that's a yes from me then if slightly conditional.

I'd be in! I've got quite few planes in the ole stash that fit this theme. Would a 72nd scale Tamiya Mosquito work?

Like a charm, probably. One of the best engineered kits I ever got my paws on.

For those that want to get to the real root of this Merlin business and aren't afraid to try something a little crazy, there's this:

The Tamiya kit is a nice model. I used the Paragon two-stage Merlins and bulged bomb-bay to convert my Tamiya Mosquito in to a post-war PR34 that really stood out.
