Well, believe it or not, 1 February has rolled around and it's time to get this one off the ground!

The official thread for this campaign is here. Please post your campaign related discussion and photos there. This thread will now be locked.

Looking forward to double the fun!

@Matt: Good luck buddy! I've had two (Now 29 and 20) and while my modelling slowed down it didn't really stop my wife realised it helped keep me sane and that was to her advantage! LOL

@Michael: Cool ribbon I say lets go with it!

Twist my arm why don't you.

You're going to get me killed - my wife and I are expecting our first the last week of January.



Yipes, I don't want anyone getting hurt! If you need to skip this one, no problem. On the other hand, if you're up in the middle of the night with the kid anyway...

Meanwhile, here's my first whack at a ribbon idea. What do you all think?





Just an idea, I'm certainly open to other thoughts!

I am in for this one. Thinking of doing a Me 262, but will probably change my mind a million times. 🙄

Looking forward to see some interesting builds for this campaign.

I'm sure we have enough to go live with this one, now if I only had time to put it together. I'll try to get it set up and approved this weekend. Thanks everyone!

AARG, I picked up an old Mono 1/48 P-61 at a local thrift shop. Looked like it was all there, even the Shep Paine diorama sheet. But alas, one of the nose gear doors isn't on the sprue or floating around in the bottom of the box. Revell is no longer in the spares business. So I guess I get to do a diorama of a plane getting it's nose gear doors fixed



It shouldn't be terribly difficult to smash-mould a replacement. Use the other door to help you make a pattern from balsa, then heat up a piece of sheet plastic over a candle and pull it down over the pattern. Use 2 sheets of different thickness to build up detail to match the door you have.

Bump time, let's not let this one die. I think we're pretty close to getting the magic "10".
Take care,

Ju 88 and Do 217 night fighter versions also come to mind. For the prototypes, there's also the Nakajima Kikka which flew in the last days of the war.

Might be the P-38, the bf 110 (nightfighter), the Me 262, the Ta 154, the Mosquito and if Michael’s permits, a cockpit build Me 410

OK, how does this sound:

Any twin engined fighter (prop, jet, rocket) that flew from 1939-45 in any actual (no wifs) color and marking scheme carried by that aircraft (including pre and post war).

Michael



Thank you Michael!

OK, I'll cancel the F5U (wif) and stick with a P-38 or a P-70.

Would the P-82 count?



Well, apparently it first flew in May, 1945. So I suppose it would count.

Michael


Howdy Y'all
What about a Do-335 in post-war French markings?
If not, I've got other possibilities.
Take care,
