Jose,
It's looking like your F-6F is coming along nicely. Good looking plane in markings you don't always see. I'm going to try to move away from braille scale due to my eyesight but there's still a few I want to complete before going cold turkey.
Nice work!
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

Hello mates,

just in time I convinced myself to join this interesting campaign with Pierre Clostermann's Hawker Tempest V.



In my schoolboy years I built it from a FROG kit, but with crude painting, so it is long gone. Last year I got me the Academy kit and it goes together really well. A little filler in the usual places, but otherwise it is promising

Jose:
Great job, nice looking Hellcat!
It's always nice to see one completed. My father & I tried to build a stick balsa F6F when I was a kid. It's been one of my favorite planes ever since then.
Take care my friend,

Another excellent finish! Your weathering skills show impressively! I really like your subtle approach to chipping.

Jose excellent work it looks sufficiently used and dirty just as a Fleet Air Arm Hellcat would. I'm interested in your formation lights underneath the fuselage, how did you achieve the effect? It looks really good.

And so it's time to say goodbye to the 1945 Campaign. Ribbons have been awarded so if you didn't get one and think you should have, please let me know.

Congrats to all who finished, a fine looking bunch of models! See you all next time!
