Oh but there are so many towards the end of that era that we’re not too many wings & bits of string… :hmm: Monoplanes were introduced, airframes got stronger and more streamlined, some very unique designs showing where the future was headed appeared. Not to mention the paint schemes…

I have a Hasegawa F4F-3 I built a few years ago. Looks pretty cool in this scheme

Ooohh..another GB idea!
To make each build less crappy than the last one. Or, put another way, "Better than the last one, not as good as the next one!"..

Oooo! Maybe we can modify that Group Build idea: Tortoise and the Hare:

Fast builders vs.slow. Who can build the most and least in the allotted time: must actually finish at least one to qualify... :giggles: :lashed:

Well, then. If Paul's not doing the XF5F then I surely am, along with the Slow But Deadly-1.
