Michael, the rules suit me and I just signed in. I'll start with my "Peschka" as soon as I can. Still need masks for it.

Torsten,

Sounds great, but don't forget the campaign doesn't start until November, so you might want to keep your engine on idle for a bit longer.

Don't worry, Michael, I know. I have enough other stuff here. So on schedule still this year is a bird from the other side, a tank killer or "tin opener" as the nick name in the Luftwaffe was.

Hi guys,
Would you accept out-of-the-box submissions from a newbie? I donít think I am up to your standards, but it would be a fantastic opportunity for me to exchange information and learn something new. Unfortunately I have just completed two Soviet planes, but Iíve already spent so much time researching the VVS and enjoyed it so much, that it would be a pure pleasure to make another one. I was thinking about U-2 recon/liaison plane. It did serve as a light nuisance bomber as well Ė would that be acceptable for your campaign? I donít own it yet, but I should get it by November.
Cheers!

Shrimp,

Welcome to Aeroscale and to the campaign! Feel free to join in, a U-2 biplane would fit right in. You'll find this a great group to work with and learn from. Don't forget it it doesn't start until November, but it will be great to see your model then!

Michael,
That's a pretty cool ribbon, I like it! Let's use this ribbon if no one objects.
Take care,

Hi guys, as a newbie I still don't quite know how campaign works, but wanted to let you know I will be a late starter as I will be away for the first couple of weeks in November and when I come back I will still need some time to finish my current build which is giving me some serious trouble. Anyway my U-2 / Po-2 is ready right on top of my stash. It looks amazing, I can't wait to start working on it.

Shrimpman,

No worries, start when you can. As long as it's finished by May 1, 2017 you get the ribbon!

Well, it's November 1 in my book, and time to kick this one off. You will find the official thread here, please post all campaign related posts and so forth in that thread. This current thread will now be locked.

Here we go, Comrades!
