I might be in, time permitting. Got several aircraft in that list.

Would the F-4 Phantom II qualify?

Even though the Phantom made its maiden flight on 27 May 1958, it is considered a 3rd gen jet fighter, so no I'm afraid it wouldn't count if you go by the book.

It's in that grey area isn't it. Best to check I thought.

If I enlist, I'll enter the Airfix Supermarine Swift.

Count me in for the campaign too.

SO tempting, I've several examples of about 7 of the candidates. But the only one started is too far along for this campaign. I've go so many hanger queens, I hate to start another one. But if I did it might be a 1/144 F-8C or maybe one of the F-101s.

Howdy Y'all
Please count me in, I'd like to build Tamiya's 1/48 F4D Skyray. It was one of the airplanes my father worked on when he was in the Navy. I'd like to give it to him for Father's Day, Birthday, Veteran's Day or Christmas, depending when I can finish it.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

This campaign has been APPROVED!

It will run from 1 June, 2017 through 1 February, 2018. You can see the rules and sign up here!

I've got more than a few that would qualify for this one, we'll see if I can stay away!

For those who have tried to enlist but haven't been able to, my fault. I had the dates entered wrong and the system didn't like that. It's fixed now, so enlist away!

Oh, and don't forget, we need a ribbon.
