A know that it is not even June yet, but as we are approaching the scheduled end of the 2012 Mass Build cycle, perhaps some suggestions for what to build when the evening start to get a bit darker (that occurs officially in 22 days time!)..

So...................................

A couple of ideas for the 2013 mass build session.

A Retro Mass build. The Vintage Mass build covered the 'Golden' age of R/C - the 50's and 60's. How about Flares and New Age - 70's and 80's? Fits nicely with the upsurge of interest in this style of model

Alternatively..

A Club 25 mass build. This will fit nicely and help kick start Alex Whittaker's initiative and also has the attraction that there is no limit to the scope of the model. Lots of variety and relatively cheap models. Just bung a 25 or 30FS or electric equivalent at the front (or back) and you are away.. (or perhaps 2 x.12 or 6 of .049's)

Best wishes

Martyn

I like the Club 25 idea.....(as long as you get the 25 sized Hog plans finished Martyn.....teeth 2). As you say it will give a bit of a lift to AWs "campaign" (& boost OS25FP prices on Ebay....smile p).

I like the Retro idea too.....aerobatic & club soirt models from the 70's & 80's......might be the excuse needed to buy a Mini Chevron.....thumbs up

Classic Pattern? - moving beyond the PB stuff and would be good to see more King Alters, Kaos, Contenders etc.

All are easy and cheap builds and may kits are available (US in particular) and they all fly very well. I recently built a Top Flite Gold Edition Contender - WOW what a great flying plane!

Great minds and all that...

My next build which won't get started until later in the year is going to be a Curare.

I'm up for the club 25 idea or perhaps a sport scale build and apply limits such as the motor size hopefully to encourage more people to have a go. just thinking out loud.

Cheers,

Chris.

Next year is the 30th anniversary of the Wot 4 (isn't it? First plan came out in 1983 I think- correct me if I'm wrong)

So how about a Wot 4 mass build (NO ARTFS!) to pay tribute to (arguably) the greatest model aeroplane ever made? I think the plane deserves it, since all the fun it has supplied to thousands of people over 3 decades.

I would participate in that (if I have the money)

Just a suggestion. (Technically, the 2012 mass build is over now!)

72" span so certainly not a birdie 10. good guess though.

Not Gazelle or a moonraker.

By the way there is a non-existant prize for the winner.

Its not a king spectre is it?

I like the idea of the club 25 mass build, would give more people a chance to get involved with a smaller build.
