Geoffrey Wellum?

According to my Osprey Aces book it was flown by Flt Lt Brian Kingcome, No.92 Squadron, Biggin Hill, November 1940. It's a Mk.Ib, R6908/QJ-F. Crash landed 9 May 1941 at Biggin by Pilot Off Maitland-Thompson and written off (the aircraft not the pilot).
Kingcome's wartime score was 8 and 3 shared destroyed, 1 shared unconfirmed destroyed, 5 probables and 13 damaged.
Sorry about the life story sized entry but it relates to build. :grin:

I hope so - I'm still in with a Zero and "maybe"* a Spitfire.





*maybe = probably!

Once you decide let us know...


I bought a spare Bristol kit. I'm in. Is this still on?

I'm still in, with a Korean War ace I think, or I might just stick with my previous choices

OK Pilgrims. If no one else wants to volunteer I will step up as GBL. Any objections?

Thought not. :lol:

So as far as I understand it we are looking at an 8 week build time. Looking at the calendar I would propose beginning of August to end of September (8.5 Weekends). Anyone object to that?

So to recap any model aircraft in any scale in any time frame as long as it was flown / crewed by an ace and achieved 1 victory in the Aircraft.

Figures and busts in any scale ok but must provide a reasonable facsimile of the person being represented.

Mini Dioramas and Vignettes of 'Aces in Action' are acceptable.

For the purposes of this GB Ace Status is a minimum of 5 air to air victories.

What's not in the GB scope. Panzer 'Aces' U boat 'Aces' multiple bombing mission or ground target kills.
WHIF's or Movie schemes.

Those who expressed an interest:
Kitaholic
OT
gnomemeansgnome
Purplethistle
Gadfly
MarkyM607
fredk
DazDaMan
Jratz
VickersVandal

Does anyone disagree with this description? If I don't here back from those who expressed an interest I will message them this coming week. So shout out if you are still keen on this GB or I'll start something else. :pilot:

All good by me. You saved my bacon too. I was still deciding whether to make myself a target and offer to go GBL but wanted to focus on doing that for the Triplane GB coming up and not start spreading myself thin. Glad you stepped in, OT. :D

Yep, I've still got a Saburo Sakai Zero lying around, and I could probably find a Spitfire ace to do as well!

Well, I was going to object, but you then put your hand up right up, so .... :)

A question just to clarify your "flown / crewed by an ace" - that would include an aircraft where the air gunner was an ace ?
