So based on that, the thought for the day must be :- we shall not forget,  memory has long wings  ;)
Oh to be whiffing again :-(

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.

Here's a question for the mods.

Does 'Cold War' also cover the various Middle East Arab/Israeli wars during the same period?

One of my ideas would depict an IDF/AF aircraft supplied by 'A Western Nation', modified with parts from another 'Western Nation' that would have been in combat with aircraft supplied by 'Eastern Bloc' countries.

I may have already started a couple of the parts from the other 'Western Nation', and it's possible that they may be very long wings............  ;) ;D But I've just glued to tops to the bottoms on each side.
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! :)

Regards
Kit

I shall consult H, but initial feeling is no, those were anything but "cold" wars.

The usual 'Finished Builds' thread has been set up but it's locked until the GB starts.

Not sure what you mean by a 'works in progress' thread?

Usually each user establishes a single thread for each build.  How detailed their build is, is up to them but in my case, usually my first build is very detailed.  Later ones not so.   Others just do what they like.

Thanks chaps.  Some GBs have threads for builds where each entrant posts progress.  Other GBs have them for profiles, others split into air/land/sea.  Others don't.

Was wondering what the set up for this GB was going to be beyond the four extant threads, that's all.
