Prickle Head, you around? Are you OK with that ribbon?

On another note, having a hard time deciding what to do for this one. Choices seem to be narrowed down to:

1/48 F-4C (Academy) vs. MiG-21PF (Eduard)

or

1/32 SPAD XIII (Hobbycraft) vs Fokker D.VII (Wingnut Wings)

What would you all like to see me start (no guarantee about finishing!)?

I have settled on a Hobby Boss F4F4 and a Tamiya A6m3 Hamp since I really goofed when I purchased a Rufe instead of a Pete for this campaign.

The Spad and the Fokker please Mike




Kinda leaning that way Peter. Itching to get at that WNW Fokker! While I will be doing Rickenbacker's SPAD, I'm not sticking to the show completely with the D.VII; it'll be Buchner's. Hope that's OK with the rules!

OK, relying on the rule that one of the builds can be from another campaign, I might take a swing at the pilot episode's Fokker D.VII vs. Spad XIII. I've gotten a start on the Fokker (WNW 1/32) that I'm actually doing for the Canvas Falcons Campaign:

We'll see if I can get to the SPAD as well.

In case anyone wasn't aware, the gallery is experiencing issues. Admin is aware of it and working on it. I'll try to post when it gets fixed.

Not much traffic here. I'm going to ask a question to see if I can get something going.

I might like to do an F6F and an A6M. Problem is that the episode in question (Episode 6) depicts actions between Hellcats and Zeros in late '43 - early '44 which would be an A6M3. Well, I THOUGHT I had an A6M3, but I don't. I do have an A6M5 and could do a pair of aircraft from the Battle of the Philippine Sea in June '44. Is that allowed?

Hi Michael

I'm not going to get bent out of shape over it. If they dog-fought somewhere I am ok with it.

This is the first part of my pair from Operation Bodenplatte. Eduard's 1/48 Bf-109G-6. I will be matching it with a P-47.

Cool Pete!
A cute little Action-Dio and very good work on the kits.
So quick and a well done paint job! I really like the camo of both, did you do it free hand?

From November up to now not much replies here (though there are nice kits in the row) and I totally forget that I singned up here...
Maybe I can give a short run before moving on at the Twins campaign with a Bf 109 F/G2 vs. Russian P-39 Airacobra while the battle over the Krim/Kuban Bridgehead 1943 since I have 2 ancient Heller kits in 1/72.
