    hey guys, this has been on my mind for quite some time, but will there be a civilian group build? like say private aircraft or airliners from the early propliners to todays jetliners? I think it might be a good idea since I mainly do civilian aircraft.

    The last group build on our current list includes WW2 recconaissance and transport aircraft. It could be extended to include airliners too if that's the general consenzus. (On the downside this GB will be on schedule only in 2013.)

    A competition of one participant ??? .... :lol:

    A joke of course. Rob, all depends on the main topic of a Gb project. For instance the one that has just been started, is for Messerschmitt/Focke Wulf planes. So it should be easy to enter that with any planes of the two manufacturers from the proper period of time. Certainly if there will be more members willing to follow the idea we can try to pick a few subjects up. But you should remember that the main idea of the forum is the WW2 aviation.

    yea, it's mainly WWII aviation, but there's one GB that wasn't aviation. I see in your sig that there was Armor. and I figured it'd be a good idea to have something else different for a change. if you guys are gonna approve this civilian GB, I'll submit my best ones, including the PAA DC-6 I'm working on. and possibly a future AA DC-4.

    Rob, there are other upcoming group builds you could sneak an airliner into.
    For instance:
    -Your Favorite Aircraft of All Time
    -Home Country Modern Aircraft
    -From WW1 to WW2 1914-39

    I've just mentioned it above Jasiu. Why Bf108 can't be or Fw200...?

    BTW...The Armor was for a split build Rob.

    Rob,

    There are a number of other FW Me's that were used as well for civilian use. The Fw 58 was used as a feeder Airline as well as their F 19. Messerschmitt had the M.20 which was used as an airline.

    Grab one and join in!
