I can place this on the draft calendar for 1 April - 30 June.
That's 13 weeks running Sunday, 1 April to Saturday, 30 June.
Let me know if that is what you are considering.


That sounds good to me John!

Well if John's happy to pencil it into the 2018 calendar now - I suggest we start on the 1st April 2018 and run for 12 weeks (not sure what that date is yet).

I'm more than happy to be GBL - Any victims..volunteers with a buring wish to be assistant?

Cheers

Stuart


I've decided to go for this build Stuart. I've been a GBL in the past so if you do need an assistant I'm willing to be No. 2 on this.

Count me in for this one, life has a regular habit of getting in the way of normal GBs so this one will allow me to finish something. No firm ideas yet but will try for something a little different- one build may be a Bloodhound Missile.

A question. Do you want to limit this to serving/operational or are designed & built, whether to a specification or as test & eval, but not employed in service also eligible ?

I had a plan when we first started, now I see other options in my stash. :roll:

That's a good question John, and I would think the answer should probably be yes...maybe.

There have been a lot of interesting aircraft designed for the RAF that never made it - Include those.

As for pure 'research' types... I guess so, it depends on how much input the RAF had maybe - I know they have been involved heavily over the years in test flying etc. I have to admit it's not a part of the service I know a lot about - Is the ETP School part of the RAF or it's own entity?

I'd ask you for judgement normally :-D what are your thoughts - I'd say we'd allow it on a type by type basis, if the RAF had some kind of influence/input into it.

Post subject:  Re: RAF 100 in 2018.

are you limiting this solely to aircraft, or are any wheeled vehicles the RAF used acceptable ...

I'm hoping for anything RAF- I am sorely tempted to make a 1/72 scale RAF Seaplane Tender as a second build.

The inclusion of non-aircraft discussion started here: viewtopic.php?p=323487#p323487
and was agreed around here: viewtopic.php?p=323567#p323567

In short, Yes.
