Got the old Matchbox Vickers Wellesley in the stash, and those who know it know that it comes with a choice of two engines. Well that gives me one left over from the other one that's almost finished. One unmade Wellesley, three engines. Hmmm... Shall I go with 2 or 3 engines on this one?

Nah, don't use ANY of them! It's got MASSIVE wings already so turn it into a glider!

I had a very similar idea, but using Wellington wings & engines (since it obviously needs the extra 10ft of span too...)

Already have two or three ideas from my vast idea list that might materialize under the "inspirational push" of this GB. One is a Saab 29 prototype with two axial engines, different wings and other mods - not certain if this actually works, but the idea is there, as well as the parts. Then I hope to make a single engine D.H. 88 Comet - not certain if it will be a military aircraft or something civil. And then I found a surplus Westland Whirlwind in the stash...  :wacko:

You could also stretch the Wellington's wings and add two more engines. Kit would certainly like that.  ;)

Go with three.  Mine will be getting two.
