When I say a bit of a cheat, maybe more of a coincidence. I've only just realised my current WIP qualifies for the group build as well. So here's my pic of the Vickers Valiant XD823.View attachment 30977

Nice clean lines with no drop tanks, these weren't carried during live drop missions. Oh hang on, I think I need to find a pic of XD823 on the ground, gear down etc......cobblers !!

Regards

Well Colin, you did not start to build it until after the GB was started, so I say go for it.

Just make a catch up post here and all will be fine.

Thank you all for letting me in. Tony (from chilly Stoke) thanks very much for the pic, unfortunately that photo wasn't taken during operation Grapple which means there are some quite obvious differences. So I'll plod on and hope nobody spots the ever so slight changes to XD823.

Regards

View attachment 31075 Just a little update. I had already started this build in the 'under construction' thread so i don't want to bog the GB section down with a load of repitition. But this is where I am at the moment. I think it actually looks like a Valiant !
