Well that definitely relegates the Battle for this campaign! Pedro the Battle is in 1/48 by Classic Airframes.

I've got decals for a 1/48 scale B17G of the 406th night leaflet Squadron she's all black with orange yellow call sign letters. Makes an interesting change from olive drab/grey or silver to go on the Monogram B17G I have in the stash. But for the campaign I'm going to do a 1/48 scale Fairey Battle just for something totally different.



Actually, Chris, while a Battle would be different I believe the rules say two or more engines. Maybe that crazy B-17?

I'm loving the way this one is shaping up. Especially since Magnus is back! Can't wait to get started!

Actually I do believe I promised to build the He177 so I'll stick with her. I might go with the Fairey Battle for the RAF campaign.



Yep, that you did Chris but regardless which, both subjects are fascinating. What scale is that battle you’re planning to build?

Got a feeling this campaign is going to be awesome just by looking at everyone’s proposed builds!

Friends! I haven't done a campaign for ages but this one could be the perfect excuse to build either my Dornier 17Z or the radial engine Lanc I bought on a whim a few years ago, both from Airfix !

I'm in!

I have changed my mind concerning the kit I will build for this campaign as I have found in my stash what I knew it was there but not where: a Polish Air Force PZL 37 Los in 1/48 from Mirage Hobby. Will show photo when I start this campaign.

Torsten



You stole my thunder Torsten I was thinking about Mirage's PZL'37, but I also have a nice Avro Lancaster from Revell in 1/72, so for now this is my subject.



Go as you like, Radoslaw, but I believe this campaign can use also 2 finished kits of this rare bomber.

Don't let the size intimidate you Shrimp me old china, it's just a few more assemblies but the process is the same regardless of size. Just take your time and sing out for help if you get stuck or aren't sure which direction to head. We'll all happily cheer you on till you get it finished.

I already brought my Airfix Avro Lancaster down from the stash! What version do you have?



I have the B1/B3 number 8013. I want to built it in normal green/brown camo. What do you have? The Dambuster?



I've got the same one! I wanted to try an aftermarket decals set for 300 Sqdr RAF plane in a night bomber scheme, so it would not be the very same plane. It would be nice to compare how we those two are going along. I've never attempted such a huge model before and I am quite intimidated.

OK, it's been just over 2 months since I last posted in this thread, and now i's fallen off of the "My Posts" list???? I still have to decide, but I'm leaning towards an old B-26 that's in the stash.

Yep, 2018 suits me. I have a Ju 88 in 1/48 from Revell (ICM) which I want to build in finnish markings for some expos in Switzerland I will attend next year, so I would be in ....

Is the F-15E allowed?



Franck,

I don't think so. I think the Strike Eagle is more a fighter-bomber, and it retains the F- designation. Sorry.

Looking forward to get started!

It will be an interesting model for sure. Hope you choose one of those unusual squiggle camouflages, Chris.

I’m considering one of those for my Ju.188 also.

Cheers

This one?



I was thinking more about He 111, because Greif might be too difficult for me yet, but I am going to follow your build with huge interest.
