I like the Dragon. :thumbsup:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Can't make up my mind what if anything I will build. I probably will build an RAF Galaxy with RB211's which Kit is giving me after a discussion and I am tempted to build a Vickers Valiant PR.3 which is basically a B.2 with a Reconnaissance pack and longer wings. A Canberra P,12 has also been thought of as is one of the Freightdog VC.10 Bomber/Tanker conversions too. Way too many options.....

I was thinking of using the S+ M Models resin 1/144 AWACS sets on my small collection of airliners/cargo aircraft.

Just a reminder.
This GB starts in eleven days so anyone wanting to influence the result of the final voting should be making a start about now with their social media campaigning.
If you are not sure how to go about this then just drop Weaver a pm and he'll take you through it.  Don't give him any money though.  I handle that side of things.
Don't say anything to Chris as we are deliberately keeping him out of the loop so he has plausible deniability.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

We would have to see the results though

It's a chance to redeem myself. A twin engined Shackleton is a good start.

longer (a simple typing mistook methinks) but thinking about it, if it meant the aircraft could fly (cruise? :unsure:) like a glider that would allow it to "linger" over it's target?

Would they be linger-longer wings or longer-linger wings, though? :unsure:

It's obvious....ones a verb, the other's a noun!  :wacko:

So you linger-longer on your longer-linger wings  :wacko: ;D

Precisely.  :thumbsup:
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! :)
