A nice idea Steve, but having spoken to a few youngsters at Telford I don't think that they would appreciate being awarded a "chew stick" The idea of the "Bulldogs Bone" is good for a trophy that we can award in the IPMS competition. I suggested novices and youngsters as that is who we are trying to pitch to and who the hobby needs to keep going. For our own annual theme we can have a similar trophy, but voted for by us bulldogs ourselves. There is no problem running this as an annual event and I don't really see the need to even call it a campaign. I can open a gallery for it and, so that you don't use up space in you picture hosting account, you can send the pics to me and I can upload them. In fact I recon that we can each start a sort of blog. Rather than starting a thread, send the words and pictures to me, via the support centre, seperately into a zipped folder and I can add it into a seperate catagory and up date the "build log". That way there will be regular updates to the site and I will have the necessary editable features to be able to do more I've actually been thinking about doing this trype of online build for some time.
So what do you all think?

I have actually started the Classic Airframes Westland Whirlwind However the resin wheels are distorted so I'm gonna have to scratch build new ones. I have decided that I will build my work mates Tamiya 1/48 Dambuster Lancaster for this. This will kill 2 birds with the same piece of plastic, finishing his model in time for Christmas 2007 and finishing something for the display. I intend to start it this week end :-)

Could this include a Centurion used by the Aussies?

Darren I believe rule 3 answers your question:

3. It can however, be something built in Britain but used by a foreign operators e.g. A Lightning as used by the RSAF.


So a Centurion used by the Aussies is fine, I believe.

I started the Tamiya Dambuster Lanc yesterday, it took me an age to figure out which was the second inner flap bay on the Flightpath etched fret. It wasn't numbered and is handed, plus the parts are etched on both sides. I had to cut out the numbered part then match it to it's partner. I also spent an age sanding down the underside of the upper wing so that it fits flush. Cutting out the flaps, from the lower wing was easy, in comparison. I will post pics later
I have a potential fix for the Whirlwind's wheels so I might try and build that as well.
