Hi guys... as I do Vietnam, AFVs, 1/35th, dios, figures and helicopters (and the occasional boat) I think the options for my "home" pole maybe a simple T34 and figures dio (less thant a foot square) and my "away" pole - well it was suggested either first world war biplanes in 1/72 or some other flying machine without rotors and at a scale which will hurt my eyes...

Let me know what you think...

W.W.1 aircraft in 1/72nd sounds good to me Richard. Or one in 1/48th as its a bit bigger and less strenuous on the old eyes.

Richard.

Try one of the Eduard WW1 kits - they are very good.

Looks like we may have 2 T-34 dios then :-)

I thought about that - two T34s... maybe I'll finish one of the hueys instead...
Little Fokker.... ahem, a little Eduard... will look into it - I fear the Tamiya stringbag will stretch finances a tad too much...

Richard go for the WWI aircraft, how about a Roden Gotha

No a Eduard Fokker or Camel would be cool.
