With the sad news about Brian da Basher, can I propose a Spats Bash - The Brian Perri Memorial GB for 2021?

There will be something this year.  Stand by.

I'm going to check my stash for kits of the strangest aircraft I can find!

Good - doing your stash hunting now.   I have one BdB build figured out.

Excellent! And I've just uncovered an unbuilt project from the '30s with spats that would have had Brian dancing with glee  ;D

Itís not just building the model, itís the whole backstory that could almost make you believe it if not for the few whacky things that just make one laugh at all the absurdity of it all

Brian gets top of his class in creative writing.   Basheresque back story - good terminology.

Do a mini version on one page briefing for my builds.   Though Brian is a master craftsman at back stories.

Here's a hoopy one,

build a kit, any kit, either from the box , whif or revive an old model then let your spouse/partner/significant other/soul buddy/BFF/close friend/folks next door/complete stranger in street design/dictate the colour scheme.

Too radical?

I realise if you are going through a bad patch or your designer is in a mischievous mood you may be opening yourself up to a lot of hurt ! ( or a very unique challange)
