That GeeBee is fantastic, and having recently got the DoraWings kit in 1/144 scale Ideas are swiming around in my head.
Mind you it is going to be very difficult to get figures small enough!  :rolleyes:

Some great shots there Philip, particularly like the German Tyre Tank  :thumbsup: Many thanks

From the looks of it, I think it started life as a space station.

I think we've seen this before ... but I'm not trolling through 129 pages to find out!  :)

I try to learn from the mistakes of others who take my advice.

Does the aircraft above remind anyone else of the Planet Satellite, details below?

Kitnut617's working on doing exactly that.

Yes, but it's on the back-burner for the moment. I decided I'd try to draw the wing/fuselage connection in 3D and then get it 3D Printed. This will lead to other builds I have in mind. The wing/fuselage development has turned out quite complicated doing it in 2D and lately my mind hasn't been on it.

It's at this stage at the moment.

If I'm not building models, I'm out riding my dirtbike
