An-2...check!
An-24B...check!
Ju-52...check!
DHC Caribou...check!
Dassault Falcon 20...awaiting decals.

What next to do, to do what, next?
I'm happy enough to go for something other than white, so that helps restrict my choices.
NMF could give me a Matchbox (ex-Otaki) Dornier Do-X, Minicraft C-97 Stratocruiser or Boeing Clipper.
I'm thinking we have enough Daks and their kin, at least for the time being.
Or I could go camo with a Revell BAe 146 STA, or (relatively) boring grey with a Globemaster...or, perhaps, a Zvezda Orlyonok!

I need a rummage and a frotter of The Stash, methinks.
It's my madness that keeps me sane.

Quite a fleet of finished models, you set a frantic pace!

15 days left plus the remains of this one -

I can get my started projects done in that time, but Im not starting any new ones.

Ive been busy, but now I have a three day weekend all to myself.
If I finish my projects on board, I might start another.

Good man, Jonathan! We've got a Stash to reduce! :D

...And if Nils doesn't pull his finger out, I'll dig out my own C-97, just for the heck of it! :mrgreen:

I don't think I'll be able to do another Transport model, before the close of the Build this weekend.
I'm content, having reduced The Stash a tad;

Great turnout and effort by all...does anyone need/want an extension?
