What I need is ideas of aircraft that fell into the history of flight.That's almost a personal question/decision. I love all aircraft..
It's your shelf, which ones do you love?
My shelves have E-Boats,Missiles,Funny cars. Tanks, and Aircraft, lots of aircraft....lol
Any list of historic aircraft would certainly include famous racing planes like the Gee Bee and the Supermarine Schneider Trophy winners. And the Spitfire, of course. And famous firsts like the Messerschmitt ME-262, and . . . WHO did you say is gay?Hmmmmm.... Spruce Goose is famous, maybe the X-15... I'll have to think some more. You can do military planes like the Memphis Bell or the Enola Gay as well.
I wanted to do a theme of models for famous planes. What would be your picks? So far I have the Spirit of St. Louis, Wright Bros. plane and Bell X-1. What others would you suggest that are out there to build?
This really isn't answerable by a buncha hobby guys surfing hobby bboards, and I doubt even published aviation experts would agree on a definitive list. Best to go find a nice generic book on the subject.
I'll give it a shot and probably leave out a lot:
(in roughly chronological order)
I knew John would come through. :thumbsup:
