We're just finishing up a twin engine WWII fighter campaign and, in thinking about new possibilities, the other end of the problem presented itself. How about a campaign focusing on aircraft with twin tails? Lots of options, from Hannovers and Handley Pages to B-25s and Lancasters and right through to MiG-29s and F-35s.

Whaddaya think?

Interesting idea Michael would it cover the likes of the Fouga CM170 Magister and some of the light civil aircraft with a similiar tail setup?

Hmmm, the F-14 I never started for the 4th generation fighters, the P-38 that never made the WW II twins, a great excuse to start an F-15, or F-22, or YF-23, or X-32, or F-35 or SR-71, or F7U, or B-25, or PBJ, or B-24, or PB4Y-1, or C-45, or P-61, or XF5U ....

Yes, I think I've got candidates sorted. The problem is starting and actually finishing.

Should be a very diverse campaign!

Jonathan, the rules state two or more tails. Where was the photo taken?

I could not figure out what to build and came across this on eBay and just purchased it.

Hi, Bob!

I just picked one of those up on Ebay a couple of weeks ago!

Ain't it GREAT?!? (Un-grammatical, but still true!)

If it flies, I LOVE IT!!!

It's Bucholz Army Airfield on Kwajalein, Marshall Islands in the early 1960's

Love XF5F!

I have this nice Flying Tigers decal from Vintage Flyer,


but no one that I am aware of makes a World Airways decal, and it looks above my skills to design.
In any case, I have plenty of Minicraft super connie kits, so I'll build a few and if I get them built up to primer I'll call that a success, and go from there.

Jonathan, I enjoy watching your builds and photos of a romantic era that I would have loved to been part of. I can just remember getting a real meal onboard an airliner.
