I will change out the kit's "sticker" decals for a set of AM 1/72nd decals.

My pleasure Mike!

A reminder all, the campaign doesn't officially start until May 1, so you all have time to prepare!

Now, which one to do when the time comes?

I'm leaning towards the F/A-18 due to a long standing fascination with the Blues.

May as well get this out of the way, or I will end up forgetting it....

Here is the kit....



And the bags of parts, instructions and two sets of markings (decal and stickers)...



Am seriously considering converting this to a BF109E7 and doing a North Africa scheme, but we will see.

The kit is very nice, although smaller than I imagined. It looks a lot more like a 109 than the Messaschnitzel does....



Now to wait for the start date....

Good thing I went past this side of the network -- been checking it over at Armorama. Here's a couple waiting to be built:

Here are some snaps of the KV II Mike:






The box says no glue required and can be built real quick. Whilst toy-like, there's some detail as in bolts. It comes with a friction drive which I think could either be installed or not. Markings for two options -- was pleasantly surprised it can be finished as a beute!

Cheers,

Tat

Option for the ribbon. Similar to the original Egg Campaign.

Large enough to see it:


50 x 20 pixel size:


Thoughts?

Cute one. If you take out the star, then the egg could be bigger thus more visible when reduced.

I am in for this one.

I normally do not build caricature models, but I will use this as an opportunity to bring my kids into the hobby.

They are 4 and 5 years, so probably not very acuurate schemes, but it will be fun and they will get a good experience from it.
