Thanks Allen !

I'm in with this one:



It's going to be OOB.

I'm hoping to achieve that camo with 6 or 7 cups of coffee and a brush ..

Don't forget to replace the top of the joystick. It should look like a slightly squashed RAF spade grip instead of the fictitious thing Hobbycraft provided.

John, Robbie, Jessie, and everyone great entries. Looks like the campaign is well on its way to having all the Mediterranean countries represented.

Hello Boys,

What a Hell of Campaign will be here...!!!!

Usually I don't go with more than one built, but I'm a litlle beat upset with my Fiat... She is fighting me a lot..

So, I decide to change my direction and join to You...



One of this baby boys will be a "Rata"...

I'll preserve the "Mosca" for another occasion... and let the Republican Colours in the skilled hands of Richard...

For the first:

Test Fit and Drink some "Mates"



I hope to "see" you with more news on the weekend

I was more interested in what you where drinking then what you were building... Had to look it up. I have had that before but I think they 'Gringo-ized' mine since it did not have all them 'floaties' in it.

Just signed up for my first campaign.

Now what to build???
The S79 Sparviero?
Macchi MC202?
IDF Mossy?
But I'm leaning toward the IAF F104
I'm also liking the Sparviero

This is my first campaign also. I am a little biased but may I suggest the S79 ? May accent my build

Not sure how detailed ones progress should be on these campaigns being a campaign noob, I posted what I have done so far.

Main parts with some ejector pins that need to be chopped (I marked them with a black sharpie marker)


Next it was time to get ready to assemble the cockpit(s). Since I am doing 2 at the same time I found that a used Football snack tray came in handy to keep the parts separated between the 2 kits. It even came with a clear plastic lid so I can cover it so nothing falls out.


Next update hopefully I will have the cockpits assembled and painted before I close them up.

Cheers
