I have signed and my mind is already ticking over, top of my list is an ASW platform followed by a Gunship and an unmanned missile based on a manned a/c. I am so looking forward to this.

I'm in. The last one was a lot of fun and I might finally have a use for that ancient Revell Fokker DVII.

The Hunters I think will be perfect. I have two unstarted kits. Several South American countries flew Hunters, well into the 1980s. One can imagine a Pacific region users group.
I have a concept for a camo scheme as well

Hmm. There are so many to choose from... F19 Lapland Stealth, Finnish MiG-29UB, Tennessee State Militia A7 in the Centennial Flag Scheme, Swedish Bronco FAC, Canadian MiG-39 Ferret, and more.

I think it was in the book Spitfires Over Darwin that I read the RAAF tried to purchase Zeros prior to the outbreak of the war. So I might do one up in RAAF colours.

A couple of my crazier WIFs to share as inspiration/inducers of facepalms:

The plane that answers the question of what if a Dewointine D.510 mated with an ME-262 and lost its windshield before being put into Imperial Estonian service:




And a Hawker Hurricane Mk.2 of the Royal Hawai'ian Air Force:

Finally! Who hasn't asked that?
Actually, those are some neat builds with fantastic color schemes. Thanks for sharing!

Just a few weeks away.
Everyone needs some what-if in their life.
Here is the campaign page for anyone who hasn't jumped in yet.

My entry is a TSAf Tennessee State Air Force A7 in the Centennial 1964 paint scheme. Something like this except I will reverse the red and blue. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/YOkhuuXBC8n6N0aJKs7aaO4YVWHQ29YlHMXXRGQxlA=w1000-h635-no

Well, looks like it's 1 September (or pretty darn close) in Greenwich, so I'm declaring this campaign started!

The official campaign thread is here. Please post all campaign related discussion and pics in that thread. This current thread will now be locked.

Time to get those creative juices flowing!
