    Sounds awesome!! Terry will love the wildcats. hehe

    Dan, my two cents:

    1) I would have merged the Captured Aircraft / Aircraft in Foreign service builds or made them a split build. They seem closely enough related.

    2) Is that Wildcat GB a joke and you're just trying to give Terry a rise? :lol: A group build with only a single plane (Wildcats) seems terribly limiting and quite frankly dull. If it stands, I'll pass on that one for sure. Since there were multiple options with 7 votes - why not cut the group build schedule off for everything after the Golden Years GB? Then we can vote again later.

    A Group Build for the Wil....that thing, doesn't bother me at all. By the time it comes around, I'll probably be pushing up daisies !!

    Not bad results as most of my favorites got enough votes... I agree with the idea that Aircraft in foreign service and captured aircraft should be merged or made a split build as it's closely related topics. Also it's quite appropriate to merge Focke Wulfs and Messerschmitts. So my list would look like this:

    Focke Wulfs Messerschmitts
    Aces Aircraft of WW2
    Aircraft in Foreign Service WW2 / Captured Aircraft of WW2
    Your Favorite Aircraft of All Time
    Home Country Modern Aircraft
    Aircraft Carrier Planes

    I feel there's no need to go further then these six future Group Builds as they alone will cover almost two year period and counting the current listing of Group Builds we are covered for the next three years(!).

    Agree with the guys...

    Good idea combining the Fw and Me builds too, Dan. Will provide more variety.

    Looks great. If we can make it through 2012, we can build the Wildcats for the Aircraft Carrier Planes build.

    Personally I would drop the last two because I think there's no need to plan that far ahead (three years!). There will be plenty of time to make another pool when we get to that point. Otherwise the list is okay by me.

    I'm happy with this schedule Dan. I'll tuck the Wildcat back in the cupboard for the Aircraft Carrier Plane GB :twisted:

    Cheers

    Works for me.

    Is the Carrier planes GB just restricted to WW2 planes or is it totally open to modern era as well?
