The 'list' is just an indication. So people can see who's doing what. If you want to do more than one build then fine.

I may be in with William Barker's Bristol Fighter as I will probably be building his Camel for the Sopwith Camel GB.


Once you decide let us know...

I'll stick with Sakai for now - if I can find a Spitfire ace to build, I will.






Probably! ;-)

I was surprised that you went with a non Spitfire subject.

How about Douglas Bader you could use the new Airfix Va kit for his aircraft...

Cheers

I've done Bader already, so will have a look at the Osprey books for some more inspiration!

Is this one going on the Calendar? It seems to have the required number.

Malan would be a good shout, although I'm thinking Clostermann or perhaps someone a little less known.

Clostermann, good choice too. I have the FROG kit of his Tempest, but can't remember if I have the decals or not.

Folks,

I haven't forgotten about this and I know some of you are keen to get going.

I've been in conversation with John and there is some rule or other that prevents a person running more than one GB at a time.

I'm currently slated for the Zero GB and shortly after that the Bf109 GB so that sort of hinders getting his up and running quickly...

Sorry if you were hoping it was going to start soon.

Cheers
GF

All good, as I suspect many of us are now committed to quite a few Builds. But I am still in, as Van Bay's MiG really needs to get built.

I am edging towards doing a Spitfire I (hey Daz!!, Spitfire :lol: ), of 92 Squadron. Can't recall the pilot's name sitting here but it will be BoB era scheme and is also part of my 92 Squadron Project.
