Hmmm... Ya know what I haven't seen in a while (if ever)? A Fleet Air Arm campaign. Let's make sure Royal Navy gets its due. I'm thinking WWI (RNAS) to date, as long as it's RN.

What do you all think? I have plenty to do already and wouldn't look at starting 'til the middle of next year, but it sounds like fun to me!

If you mean the Phantom, Hasegawa used to do a RN boxing. Don't know if it's still available but I'll bet you could find one.

Darn.. I am doing a Frog Avenger II in FAA colours for the Frog Campaign. Too bad I can't do 2 campaigns with one build... or can I?

Britmodeler; that's not The British Bulldogs here on KitMaker, right? Given that, does anyone feel we'd be stepping on their toes?

Robb, No, sorry, that's one of the general overall rules on KitMaker, one campaign per model. You can always find something else though!

It's a good looking kit. I have two in my stash as well as a couple of the RAF boxings and I'm debating doing one for the campaign. If your still in the market for a 1/48 Revell did a rebox of the Hasegawa FGR.1/2 a few years ago at a hugely reduced price (roughly half the asking price of a Hasegawa in the UK). Not sure if any are still around to be bought but it does open up another avenue of investigation.

Ok I'm in on this one, how could I not when my main build theme is FAA. So what do I build, we'll there is of course the Seafire, Sea Fury, Navy Lynx, Spitfire (hooked) or Hunter GA.11 all ready to go in 1/48, I'm leaning towards the Hunter
