A minor brainwave. What about an Aircraft of the Aces GB; any aircraft from any conflict but must be either flown by an ace and/or have more than five kill markings. 
 

Personally  I have a nice Eduard Albatross, a Couple Camels( well 4 actually), a SPAD and some N17s in the stash that would all do nicely. Now that I think of it I’d also like to add Richthofens Halberstadt DII to the collection.

Well I have gaps in my FAA Aces collection for:-

  • Brabner, Bruen, Sewell (Fulmars),
  • Bruen, Crosley, (Sea Hurricane IIb),
  • Cotching (Wildcat V),
  • Reynolds, (Seafire III),
  • Wilson, Foster (Hellcats).

So I think I can find something.  Count me in please?

Sign me up too please! I have lots of 1/48 fighters in the stash that would count, and there's no chance I'll get through them all before this starts!

Good idea. I suggested this as a GB a while ago. Had a small response but it all went flat so I hope it goes better for you! But you can add me to the list though.

That’s an attractive idea. And as Tim has said it could apply to tankers and uboats. Must be the odd sub hunter that sunk 5 uboats. USS England got 6 in the Pacific. 
 

I’m into planes and have the Eduard 1/48 Ernst Udet set plus a Fokker E1 and decals for him with that and need an excuse to move them up the build list

Yes please - this Airfix Hurricane,

Which I've built previously as SD*X,

So this time with markings for Squadron Leader Archie McKellar.

Reconfirming the same idea in support for 2023.

Anyone want to take bets whether he would be the most featured Ace in this GB?

Galland, Bader, Richthofen, Rickenbacker ?

 
Should this one see the light of day I’ll be doing Richthofens Halberstadt DII.

 

Actually the culture of the ACE wasn’t really a big thing among the allies wheres the Germans, particularly the nazis loved the cult of personality.
