    Only 10 days to the start of GB 16 - From WW1 to WW2 1918-39. It should bring a wide range of entries.

    I'll be building the Czech Model Curtiss A-8 Shrike. It has a ton of resin and should be quite challenging.

    I'm sitting this one out. Plenty of other stuff in my stash to be built but nothing from that era.

    for this GB, I have a serious trouble choosing planes, I have 10 aircraft from 1918 to 1939;
    Albatross DV of Baron von Richthofen,
    Junkers G38 (D-AVIS)
    RWD-8 (spanish nationalist air force)

    Hispano-Nieuport NiD-52 (spanish nationalist air force)
    Koolhoven FK-51 (spanish republican air force)

    Nieuport 17 of Count Francesco Baracca :D I thought you'd never ask :)

    I'm itching myself to do either a I-16 from the Spanish forces or China as well :S

    I searched and couldn't find the exact criteria for the build. I understand it's for between wars but does that mean that they were designed and only flew before WWII? Or, designed before but flew in WWII, say an early Mk.I Spit? Me, I'm going for the MC.200 Saetta or Swordfish if they fall into line.

    Geo, It's 1914-1939, so my understanding is, any aircraft made in those years with markings not after Dec.31,1939. I may be wrong, so if a judge would weigh in, it would be great.
    I have a Curtiss R3C-2 that Jimmy Doolittle flew and a Grumman F3F-1 that are definitely going in, and as a possible third entry, it is a coin toss between an S.E.5a, a "Willow" Japanese trainer, or possibly, (with the judges approval), resurecting the P-35 that got destroyed by "aliens" in GB# 13.

    The original idea was to have the GB for the 'between the wars' period, 1918 to 1939, to allow coverage of the huge variety of aircraft, and rapid developments in aviation during this period. This also allowed a digression from the numerous repeats of the same type of aircraft seen time after time in many of the GBs - '109s, '190s, P-51s, Spits etc.
    However, this has now been expanded, for some strange reason, to include WW1, so is aimed at aircraft from 1914 to 1939. The real 'spirit' of the GB is supposed to allow the 'Golden Age' of aviation to be represented, and not, for example, another '109 in a different colour scheme, although this, of course, is likely to happen anyway.

    I agree Terry. I would have thought, aircraft obsolete by WWII which, technically eliminates every thing in my stash save the..."shudder"...P-36.

    I was planning on doing a F3F-2 balsa/tissue kit by Diels Engineering, of Amherst, Ohio. You'll note it's not a Guillow's kit. However, I may sit this one out.

    George, the Hobbycraft P-36 family are not a bad models, just a little basic. I've built 3 of them and enjoyed building every one. Still have one somewhere in my stash.

    I remembered some made kits among the stash from my mate's attic... if resurrecting old kits is allowed, then count me in with a 1:72 Frog/Novo Supermarine S6B.

    Have seperated parts already, needs to be cleaned up and decals sourced from spares. Also in said stash is a VEB Plasticart 1:72 Junkers G23... hmmm.....
