hi just a thought but maybe we could do a gb based on the early jet age or even the gloster meteor as this year marks the 75th anniversary of frank whittles design and britains first operational jet fighter

I quite like this one, especially if you made it from the 40's to the 60's as those 30 years saw spectacular progress. [smile]
This is what I think of as the golden era of flight because it's when flight design really matured and really began to push the envelope of flight.
I hope you might be including all the weird and wonderful rocket planes too [wink]   

Anyhow, a very interesting era of flight [smile]

have no problem with your idea Paul and obv if this idea was chosen as the next GB in some form would be great as is an important part of history and be nice to mark it somehow!!!!! but be nice if can include maybe some the century fighters in some way???? like you I don't think I got a decent meteor kit only the old airfix 1:72 one , but would give the excuse to get the new airfix 1:48 one or a Tamiya one lol

hehe like any of us need an excuse to buy kits lol [biggrin]

Nice that you are open to suggestions [smile]

it is an iconic era, for many reasons not least of which was the sheer bravery of
the crews because back then it was all flight into the unknown, it literally was to
the moon and back, simply astounding, by the time they hit the 70's production
jets were doing Mach 2 like it was an old routine affair !

had some ideas for names [biggrin]

"flight into the unknown"
"Heroes at the Edge of Flight",
"From Whittle to the Moon and Back",
"Propellerless Wonders"
"Phenomenal Propulsion Progress" (I like the idea of a tongue twister winning just to hear Bobby struggle with it haha [biggrin] [biggrin] )

Anyhow, you've got me thinking about the whole era now [smile]
