Biggles Air Police group build 2018/19 discussion.

Post by VickersVandal » Tue Nov 06, 2018 9:40 pm

Fellow modelers, I'm fairly sure we had a discussion about this on the old forum but where it is now I don't know.

So who is up for an Air Police (or at least post-WW2) group build running December 2018 to end of February 2019? If there are enough takers (let's say 4 absolute minimum) we'll go with it.

I will probably build a Sunderland (Airfix) or a Short Sealand ( resin - can't recall manufacturer).

The old discussion will still be on the old forum, VV. It can be copied and pasted across. We can't make new posts on the old forum, but it is a perfectly simple task to copy and paste word posts across to the new forum.

Copying photos across is harder. Some people seems able to do it without a problem. Others (like me) have a computer than refuses to recognise photos from the old forum. We reached our limit for attachments, recently, but Soppy has sorted us out so photos can come across again as of today.

Hi, VV, There are no threads relating to 2018/2019 GP Build on the old forum. See attachment.
I am one of the few able to copy photos across with ease and I have started to copy some threads of the Modelling Forum across but it's a bit of along-winded process and probably isn't going to be done (by me, anyway,) very quickly.
If anyone wants to transfer data over they can, otherwise it will be done in dribs and drabs as and when I can. I can't guarantee to keep any photos so I hope everyone will take responsibility for their own if they haven't kept copies.

Thanks Kismet, FB. I couldn't recall where the discussion was but I'm sure we had raised this. No matter - there's a discussion now.

Some of the regular Air Police workhorses to consider for this group build (with thanks to DrBiggles for the images on the biggles.info page):

They all look very good VV. I think the Air Police build is an excellent idea. I hope you get enough interest to go ahead. Great to see something new coming on to the new Forum :-)
