Potential for this GB, five engined Nimrod. ;)

It'd be able to cruise on just the RB-211 I reckon, never mind about shutting down only two of the Speys!  :o

It looks like Chris will have to do that, I tried and I can't.  :banghead:

"Me 109" trimotor, actually a 109 wind-tunnel model repurposed to test the 110
wing and engine nacelle design.

Sorry Dizzy, I thought I'd done it. Took my eyes off the ball I'm afraid. It's done now

That’s weird.  When I check the thread on my PC it also says there’s a two-week extension.  Odd 😉

Oh no it doesn't, when someone asked a while ago I said it was too soon to ask for an extension yet, but if anyone were to ask now................?  ;) ;D

Gents. I've moved a couple of build threads to the appropriate "every day" build threads so if anyone would like me to move their unfinished builds let me know.

By now it's all done and dusted, even on the far west side of the Pacific, so soon it'll be time for voting.

After the monumental hash I made of the last poll perhaps I'd better let my fellow mod arrange this one...……….  :-\

Chris could you move my projects (all four of them) for this GB to the regular/everyday build thread?  :-\
Again, I couldn't finish on time, but will continue anyway. Most of them are almost ready.

Thanks
