GB Feeler Lockheed Martin Skunk Works
Posted by greentracker98 on Friday, June 3, 2016 11:03 PM

I'm thinking since we've had a Boeing GB, Maybe we should do another Aircraft Company.

I'm making it a choice between Douglas and Lockheed.

Sorry Joe, If I made it a choice of any aircraft company. We could have 100 votes and every one of them could be different

So everryone cast your ballots here

Isn't there one aircraft company now?

LOLS, but my vote is Northrop.

Sorry guys, after I posted this, I went and looked up aircraft companies, There must have been at least a couple thousand of them in the last 100 years.

So sorry for my jumping the gun and not knowing hardly any aircraft companies

Of the two, I'd go with LockMart.  Greater range of aircraft.

Hmmm, that's a tough one. I think Lockheed. I'm partial to Kelly Johnson and the Skunk Works.

Well, I live just a few miles north of the Lockheed Marietta Ga location and have had a few relatives including my Dad retire from there, so... Lockheed for me. Both are fine companys with many years of proud tradition and an amazing stable of aircraft.

Take care...

Well, I thought there would be more intertest in this GB. Maybe, it just needs to be post poned for a while. I know summer time isn't a good time for modeling. There is all the outdoor activities. I also haven't been into the models so much lately. I went into my "office" last week and ended up sweating my butt off. Its been really muggy and close here this summer.

So, if anyone would like to pick this up in the winter, just let me know. I'm inclined to go with Lockheed Skunk Works myself

Yep, got a Lockheed Hudson, and C-130 in the stash. Wouldn't mind doing a Viking or P-38 either.
