    I was just looking at my stash and thinking ahead.

    Is the jet age GB a specific period or just anything without a prop ? For some reason ( probably my stupidity, stress levels and advancing years ;) )
    I had it in mind this was all about the dawn of the jet age, but reading it again I am not so sure

    I'd have to check back to Vic's original description, but I think it's any jet.

    We all have a jet that we loved and always wanted to build, one that we loved to hate, one that we wished could have been and possibly would have been if it wasn't for politics or just one that has been hanging around too long in the stash.

    So anything. I've got an RAF Phantom and an RCAF Sabre lined up.

    Ok thats cool thanks guys thats what I thought.

    My stash is largely jet free, just 1 F-5 i think. Top Gun was on tv at the weekend ( i know .... but i was an impressionable age when it came out :( ) which made me think of trying something like an F14 or F15

    I have two jets in the stash, a 262 and a Meteor. Perhaps one or both of these.

    Forgot about my Meteors. Seeing as Cory and Andy have leapt in with RCAF Sabres and Starfighter, I'll do an RCAF Meteor.

    Oh, where to start? Jets in my stash (all 1/72): MiG-21 (four 1/72 and one 1/48 kit), MiG-29 (two kits), F-104 Starfighter, N-62 (G-4) Supergaleb (5 kits), F-84 Thunderjet. Hope I haven't forget anything else. Too many options and so little time...

    Yup, mine is the one with the fighter type canopy and the shark mouth !

    Also got a Torando gr.4 and Hawk for RAF types, plus F-14, F-15 and Su-27, MIG 29, MIG 21 !
    Might have to be a closed eyes pick !
