Seems like that's decided then, chocks away folks. Start when ready.

I don't know whether Kevin intends to have another RCM&E late summer fly-in next year, it's great when MB participants can meet up, anyway, news to follow.

Yay, good choice, Gnat kit arriving via Santa (i hope), Aifix Gnat kit bought off evilbay to use as a guide for panel lines and decal scans hopefully. Going with this scheme, what are others looking at as schemes for their jets?

Once I’ve flown the Gnat and hopefully proved something that size does not send me dizzy, I may join in with the Hunter as that is also a must build classic.

Banggood is out of stock now. Estimated restocking time is 6 weeks. Are there good alternatives for a 3S setup?

Try the 4 max site they have sets for TN Models listed.

Merry Christmas by the way.

I can imagine that they have stock. 4-max do charge just under double price compared to Banggood. And that is without shipping cost to Norway.

We are not in a hurry. There will be snow on the ground until May...

Merry Christmas and good building.

Santa came through for me, Gnat EDF kit which along with the RCM&E build article and a Gnatty (sorry!) Airfix 1/48 scale Gnat kit which will be used for the decal scan for plane mine will be built as. Pressing on with my Cambrian ME109 now to get the airframe finished to clear the building board for the mass build. Mine will be started on the 1st Jan................ smiley

The Gnat is my choice.

probably do the Red Arrows colour scheme or the silver/dayglo orange scheme like in Martins post above.

Having already built and flown the Jet Provost and done the red, white and black colour scheme, I'm leaning towards the Red Arrows scheme on the Gnat as it's much simpler.

Started on the jet Provost a couple of weeks ago. Canopy and intake mouldings to hand (very quick service from TN Designs!). All parts cut out, wings complete, fus started, but with fan on order from Banggood I'm waiting to be able to complete the fan fit to make any more progress. All done with wood from the spares and leftovers box!!

Definitely the Gnat for me and Hunter for my son. I suspect that the Lightning and Hawk will follow although want to also do the Provost.

Will we do any build threads, like we used to do with Mass builds in the past? Or post everything in this discussion thread?

I'll be creating my own thread Lucas.

 

Still not sure which one to go for. Probably the Provost but still waiting for my Fan to arrive
