  1. Thank you, Mike, for posting that link. There are many great pics there that I had never seen in 50+ years of following military aviation. I'll add the link to my collection of aviation albums, and use the Fairey Battle pics when I get around to my MPM kit. Bill
  2. Sign me up for this one. I need a good reason to start one of the 1/700 kits here. Have not built one since the mid '70s.
  3. Please add me to the list. It will fit right in with the F-111 and F-16 builds. I have not built an Eagle since the days they were painted Air Superiority Blue.
  4. Sign me up, please. I have a few Fine Molds kits here.
  5. Please add me to the roster. I might try a YFM-1 in OD/NG or an F-16XL in Polish camo. There's also a box full of Luft '46 kits to fall back on. This should be fun.
  6. Add me to your list. I think the last gray jet I finished was a 1/48 F-16, about 30 years ago. It's about time to build a 1/72nd one. Now I just have to decide which one to pull out of the stash. The ancient Hasegawa kit (from ~ 1977) has the lt.blue / lt.gray scheme I always liked. The Kinetic F-16D Block 52+ kit has Polish markings. The Hasegawa F-16I is a break from gray and would go nicely with an F-16A configured for the Osirak reactor mission (if I build both). And F-16s were stationed at Niagara Falls, my old stomping grounds. I should build one of those. Decisions, decisions.
  7. Add me to the list. I have a few kits in the stash.
  8. Count me in on this one. I have several aircraft and armor kits in the stash that will work for September 1939, and a few for later. Right at the top of my list is a Fairey Battle (hoping Airfix releases a new one soon)
  9. Sign me up. I have a few in the stash and it should be a fun build. I hope to finish one this time. Bill
  10. +1 I could not agree more...though I might substitute a good Bourbon for the Stella when necessary.
  11. I'd like to join, and bring the Amodel Tomashevich Pegas to the party. It has two 5-cylinder air-cooled radials, and is double-ugly.
  12. Count me in. I have 40+ different kits in 1/72 that qualify, and another dozen or so that might. If the build doesn't start until 2014 or 2015, I have a fighting chance to get my workbench ready. Bill
  13. I'm in. This might be the motivation I need to get back to the workbench. Something from Poland, September 1939. Bill
  14. I have that kit, but it's in my storage shed. I can dig it out and scan the instructions tomorrow morning. All I'll need is your email address.
