    OK, to get this Poll squared away correctly, cause Jan is a 1st Class Meatball Extraordinair, I re-did it....

    As has been suggested, the next GB will be the PTO from '41 to '45 covering the whole theater of operations and would be followed by Battle of Britain in a suitable time frame and end October 31st... Those 2 Builds have been removed from this poll, as well as New Guinea Air War as being part of the PTO.....

    Please choose which ones u would like to see in the upcoming year or so... PLEASE, only choose ur favorite Top 5...

    EDIT: Here is the updated CONFIRMED Build Listing....

    OK, so unless there are any changes to it, here it is:

    Great work Dan! Done my five:-
    Cold War Protagonists.
    Bombers/Heavy Hitters.
    Air Sea Rescue.
    Market Garden.
    MTO/North Africa.
    In that approximate order.
    We seem to be getting places quickly with this; great stuff, I'm really pleased it's so popular, and thanks again to Lucky for the concept/idea.

    Picked my 5. Can I just add without being violated, that maybe we could add Ritterkreuz winners along with the VC and MOH winners?

    A 'Heavy Hitter' is the average woman in my town!
    Don't know, presume it's some sort of bomber/large strike aircraft - Jan's term I think?
    EDIT: forgot, makes sense to include the RK with the others.

    Without starting too much of a discussion in this particular thread, would 'Bombers' include something like the Boston/Blenheim? If so, I feel an RAF light bomber coming on... :twisted:

    And Terry, nice one about the heavy hitters mate :laughing6:

    BT, bombers are bombers, and Blenheims and Bostons are bombers, so....
    Funny, I was thinking of a 1/48th scale Boston!
    And those women in my town, they're all descended from a strange creature (aren't they all?), and go by the collective name of Hippocroccofrogs!

    4 is all I could decide on...great selection though!

    Since heavy hitter is in the Bomber choice, I'm going to assume it means the fat bastards like the B-17G, the Lanc, the B-29 and anything that could dump a serious load?
