    Now opened up to all things 1\144 scale jets or props now includes airliners and any thing else to give it more appeal I realize now that these mini kits are a bit fiddly for some of are bigger hand members to add this is just for aircraft

    I have been toying with that idea I could change the title to 1\144 GB but no civilian airliner's any make allowed

    So a military 1/144 GB? Too small for my fat fingers!

    That certainly opens it up a bit, Even at 1/144 some of the massiv aircraft are a decent size. 
    Is your plan just the aircraft, or can there be other things in the build...

    That sounds like a good idea so I will open it up to all things 1\144 to give It more appeal

    No need to alter the title all the time.


    It will be enough to say it is a 1/144 aircraft GB.  you can define the build more in the suggestion. So now it would be something like:


    A 1/144 scale aircraft, either stand alone, or in a diorama. If you open it up to much the build becomes more of a theme and you risk a build that contains no aircraft at all!
    I have just had a look at Hannants web shop as they have huge listings of every thing you can imagine. 1,039 aircraft in 1/144. so pleanty to chose from. (even if some of them are rather pricey! £98 was the dearest I have noticed but that was an Antanov transporter with several other aircraft in the box!)

    This sounds like a bit of fun. Got a couple of smaller kits which could be cool.

    Some time ago I decided to swap the scales and make a collection of seaplanes in 1/144 instead of 1/72 and 1/48 mix. So I'm in with some WW II seaplane in 1:144 :D
