I have to change the kit I have planned for this campaign. Recently I heared from my LHS that the new 1/48 Airfix Blenheim is scheduled here for November. That is far too late for my "production plans". So I'll step back to the Airfix BP Night Defiant NF.I, which I had planned fot the HOOTM Campaign. But before I start the Defiant, I will start the Bombers 2 Campaign ....

Would love to now I need to figure out how to post pics since all my pictures used to be in photobucket. Now I don't have any way of storing and sharing photos



winston if you have a facebook account join one of the model clubs (i joined 1/48th scale WWII model aircraft) when you post a pic there you can use it to post here. that's what i'm doing with my devastator build.less time consuming than FB.
i also have used flickr, it's free also but the site is a little confusing to use. there is no explanation or direction how to use, nothing is labeled.

OK, chances are slim that I can spend the rest of the year NOT doing an RAF subject so this is certainly low hanging fruit! I'm in but I haven't decided what to build yet, I'll try and fill in some blank when I get around to start on this one (have a Lanc for my next build but that one's already committed to the bombers campaign...).

Then count me in! (The Spit is fine but it is too late for the Lysander.)

Would love to participate - but I would need the campaign to start immediately!

I don't have anything of the Great War era but I just started a 1/32nd Spitfire Mark 9 and am really into it. Also I have a 1/32nd Lysander well on its' way.

Could the Spit still qualify?



Well, the rules say it qualifies if it's no more that 25% started. If you're no farther than that on 1 April, you're good to go! Only a week away...

I have a Monogram 1/48 Hawker Tempest



Bob,

Not to be pedantic, but "that's no Tempest!"

Michael, that Tempest looks amazing. I'll be interested to see how it goes together as I've got my eye on a couple of Special Hobby's 1/32 aircraft.

A little bump before this one takes off on 1 April. My choice for the campaign is something I got for my birthday earlier this month:



I was kind of drooling over this one when I saw the online reviews and it doesn't disappoint in real life!



Pretty much chock full of goodies, we'll have a closer look when I actually get started. Side note, I seem to have gotten the last one of these from Sprue Brothers as they showed "out of stock" as soon as I ordered it. There's a sign that I need to build it if ever I saw one!

Is there an OFFICIAL thread for this build yet?
I could not find one.



The campaign doesn't start until April 1. The official thread will go up then. Looking forward to it!

You can count on me, too, Michael. And I go with Pedro. Would build Airfix' new quarterscale Blenheim or Revell's new Beaufighter, when it's finally out in the shops.

Got a Jet Provost T.4 in the planning stage so it fits the campaign nicely.
I've made a poor showing in campaigns over the past year, but I'm determined to complete this one.

I had a feeling this one might be popular. I believe that's 9 so far!
