Chris,

Whether this is a formal GB or not, is there a termination date in mind?

 :rolleyes:

Nope Jim. Being a TB rather then a GB (I know the difference because I'm in charge of the blessed things  ;D) the timescale is open ended. It will carry on until it withers on the vine.

As a point of note lads. What I do with my GB and TB builds is to post a single picture and a link in the finished models section of the forumn. In that way people who would not normally stray into this area get to see them  :thumbsup:

It took me over 15 YEARS to build all three PR19s, so the time frame is surely wholly elastic.  ;D :lol:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

A nice idea! I could add something here, too, got an idea, a basic kit and donation parts for a high altitude version. It was actually intended as a "PR_19_kit tribute", because it perfectly fits into the long wing concept. :thumbsup:

Gotta start a Russian one next, though.

I'm thinking along the lines of an F5,/F20 , stretching the wings with odds and ends from my stash and maybe finishing it as either PRU or AAEE Boscombe Down colours.

I've been toying with a variation or development of my Avro Alston for a while and I've got most of the bits in a box for it.

Along the lines of what I was thinking of for my CR-100.
