And in previous discussion the mods have determined that hovercraft and ekranoplans ARE eligible.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

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

Do we get to ask questions yet?   :-X

First up is, I'd like to request a ruling from the mods on entering my Porco Rosso Savoia S.21.  I didn't realize that it would be a perfect fit for this GB so I started it, but got no further than cutting the main pieces off the sprue and giving the cockpit interior a single coat of paint.  It's been sitting untouched for a few weeks as I've tried to focus on getting my Sci-Fi GB projects finished... and remained that way in anticipation of this request.

All current work can be reviewed in the build thread - http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php/topic,44187.0.html

Yes, questions are OK now. We'll cogitate on your S.21 and get back to you.

We've discussed it &, if that's as far as you've gone, it's a unanimous "Yes, you may enter it" from the mod's. :thumbsup:

Oh, no! We're just GB moderators! The Whiffy Academy is a whole different kettle of fish! ;)

Can I also respectfully ask one of those fine moderators to move the Savoia thread to this GB section?
Thanks!

OK, I'll give it a try.


Remember, no more work until 00.01 Wednesday 1st November 2017!


Later: Sorry, strobez, looks like I can't. I'll chase it up with Chris.

Yeah, we moderators may be 'all powerful' within our own GB area, but for REAL power you need a Global Moderator.  ;D ;)

Looking at the stash I have an ideal candidate for this GB. Problem is, is that it's a vacform and I've never built one  :o

I may well start it and take my time with it whilst working on something else.
