Not my hometown Donnie, but it is the dept. I ended my career with. Wake-New Hope VFD Raleigh, NC.

Aaron, I'm just getting started on my helicopter, should have some WIP pix soon. I know Matt was working on his & will be getting back on it in a few weeks after moving & getting settled in. And Cheify's got that boat dropper, super detail plane in the works. I'd say, let's leave it as-is for now. Maybe some of the newer members will give it a try - hint, hint, nudge, nudge. I'm sure out of my comfort zone building one, but heck, it's supporting the House, right??

Alrighty then, I'll just wait and see what you guys come up with. I wasn't sure if interest had waned or not. I know Matt had his move but wasn't sure about the rest of you.

Hey Guys, should this group build be put on hold till the Mack build is done or should we continue as planned?

Opinions.

I am planning on building a newer International 4400 or 4700 tanker with an Elliptical tank as part of this group build as soon as my arm is healed!

Interesting. :ugeek:

It has a bigger tank that I would have expected.

If this build is taking off, I'm looking at an International 4300 with the Lindberg trailer for a tank.
