johns right the mk1 escort is actually more British than the mini it was designed by a Brit and built by Brits the mini was designed by a turk.
Peter sorry if it sounds like I'm having a go at you as I'm not but realistically if you impose this rule you won't be able to build the best of British as most of the things we class as the best are nearly all collaborations with other countries.
I should renamed the title built in Britain so sorry for all the confusion.

Well...then, I’m in :p


Just a suggestion. If this GB must be the Best or Built in England....why not the only rule is add at the model a British flag! (Smaller or bigger, you choice)

And also Made in Britain must accompany the flag

You are the sheriff on that one, is your suggestion!

Anyway it’s difficult to imagine Steve (Stona) building a super Spitfire model and then adding a “Made in England” decal :D :D :D
