Should be good. I think the Italeri kit is the old Esci mould. Reckoned to be excellent.

Then I saw an Arctic scheme on here, and went fishing for a kit. I blame you all.

I've placed 3 pumpkin seeds in an old film container, and shaken it at the moon. I wonder if I should have chalked a circle on the ground and done an ape dance for insurance.

I bought an Italeri GR3, 1:72nd with all the AM fixings.

1.Shame on you!! :lol:
2.Our pleasure :twisted:
2.Very good/probably :-D :grin:
3.Excellent! :grin:

So are we starting soon?

I have been assuming we are restricting scope to things that actually flew - ie. no sci-fi, designs that didn't get built, whatifs, etc. but don't object personally if the group want those in.

I'm ready to put this into the shared build section for a year.

As its a shared build which is a little less strict on rules whats everyone's thoughts on kits starting condition?

If it's a shared build perhaps started condition wouldn't be too much of a problem. I might build another Harrier, unless Mav has had all the bits :ha: :ha: :ha: :ha:
On the other hand I have some helicopters... is the Britten-Norman Islander a STOL aircraft??.

Part started; its either 0 or anything; setting any % it will be hard to say 'that is 25% completed, that one is more'
What is '25% built' ?
No matter what % it will be too low for someone

Ok stuff it lets go with any condition, Haha yeah I've had a bit off you haven't I :D.
You may as well send me that spares box dedicated to Harriers haha!

On a serious note though Im not sure STOL fits into it mate.
Its aimed at things that basically go up and down haha!(pardon the pun)

As a reminder:
-- SB are limited to fewer than 6 players.
-- Since SB are not GB, the 36-month between does not apply and it could be a Harrier SB.

What happens if you start off with fewer than 6 but people want to join after it starts?Does it then become a GB?
If we make it a Harrier SB then it becomes a Harrier GB doesn't it then break the 36 month rule?
Also if we allow part started kits in the SB that becomes a GB, that's another rule broken.
Bit of a grey area

Shall we put it as a VTOL SB for a year and just go from there?

From what I have read people are open to anything so I think the best course of action would be a year long shared build.

I think we are at this point.

It's a shared build starting now for a year. Subject is any VTOL vehicle including Harriers but probably not sci fi or whatifs ( not 100% sure about that constraint being agreed ). Started models allowed at Mav's discretion on case by case basis.

David (mulling choice of kit to build)

Mulling choice of kit to build is definitely the hard part
