75th Anniversary Battle of the Bulge GB @15

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Happy new year guys, read an article on Bodenplatte earlier thought it would be a cool topic for a GB, having said that stevehnz suggested to make it A Battle of the Bulge 75th Anniversary GB, which I think is a good idea and it gives the GB a broader appeal.

 

Some interest now with:

I'll play here.

 

There are several old Aeromaster sheets for Bodenplatte, there's also a couple of quite large sheets from DP Casper Decals, several Hasegawa 109's and 190's come with appropriate decals OOB, the Fine Molds 109K and the Kagero book comes with a decal sheet for the profiles inside it.

I'd be interested. Any possibility of building WWII aircraft is to be commended! I'm not sure I have any suitable decals but there's still time to check. I have plenty of 109s, 190s and Spits :D

 

Cheers

perhaps a 190 and 109 double build in matching winter camo 

plenty time to research

Seeing as Bodenplatte was so much a part of the air war in the Battle of the Bulge/ 1944-45 Ardennes campaign, it might have wider appeal to extend the scope of the GB to all air ops in this campaign?

In that case I might try my first tank with a 190 swooping over it in the snow! Got loads of 190s in the stash and plenty of fake snow left from the wedding (it snowed on the day!) Big dark brooding Tiger with red number...

I think that would be a good idea, could also include Armour then.

Definitely. I was hesitant to suggest that lest I was seen to be hijacking someone else's idea but it does make sense,  75th Anniversary Battle of the Bulge GB in 2019? :)

Would we be including the Allied aircraft from the campaign too?

Just finished reading "To Win The Winter Sky" by Danny Parker which covers the air operations by both sides in Ardennes and I quite fancy either a P-47 or P-61 on a snowy airfield.

Of course, yep allied and axis, either aircraft, armour or otherwise :yes:  I personally just bought Anthony Beevor's Ardennes 1944 today, should be a good read.
