My prototypes GB project
« on: July 05, 2020, 09:31:20 am »
Just finished the rough build phase.
Now finishing, touching up and then on to painting......

I hope I've haven't been too ambitious and I can finish this lot.

Ye Gods!  :o :o :o :o
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Heavens! :o I seem to have got the wrong end of the stick about Group builds.
I thought that a group of us got together to build things,
Not that one of us built a group of things ;D

The British have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies ran out for three weeks

Not as serious perhaps as you may think - they're all 144th.

I like building things that go together in a "collection".
And sometimes I go a little bit overboard......

Fantastic.  I have a hangar in the idea stage.  Will be great for staging/pictures.

Looking forward to yours.

Uh, I misread at first, thinking GB was meaning Great Britain (with completely unknown prototypes), while these are German prototypes and GB means Group Build, sorry. :unsure: ;)
