Lying awake last night, I had a great idea for a campaign. Great range of aircraft and nations, 50+ years of history, and a lot of very eye catching colour schemes!

For the benefit of those who don't know, The Tiger Association is a group of squadrons from NATO member countries who all feature a tiger somewhere in their squadron emblem. Since 1961, a member of the Association has hosted the annual "Tiger Meet", and the aircraft that participate in the meet sport unique colour schemes based on the tiger, to mark the occasion.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NATO_Tiger_Association

My proposal is very simple - any aircraft in any scale, as long as it is depicting any aircraft that has ever participated in the Tiger Meet. I will say no to "what ifs" at this stage, as they are unnecessary.

Revell has issued a number of kits featuring Tiger Meet schemes over the years, if you want to build OOB. Beyond that, there are many, many decal sets available.

For my own part, I would love to build a Rafale in Tiger Meet colours (such a sexy aircraft!)

Forum, over to you, your opinions and suggestions would be most welcome!

I remember hearing about Tiger meets while I was in Germany that sounds like a cool build idea.

Great idea!
I am building a F4 Tiger for the Phantom campaign and have a CF-104 Tiger in my build line up.
Count me in.

Humm, i still have a decal sheet somewhere, forgot the maker tbh, with a italian starfighter i saw live in one tigermeet edition...i think it was somewhere around the turn of the millenium or so.

If this campaign kicks up i will enlist either way, starfighter or alpha jet.

Cheers

I'll bump this just once, in the hope that most people were on holiday, and haven't seen it yet. Come on people - Tiger Meet aircraft - what's not to love?

@Pete - I have no idea when this will start, but like Richard said it will be at least a year off yet (unless the proposed change to two campaigns starting a month happens!). Obviously, I cannot submit this proposal to the moderators until there are at least 10 people showing an interest, hopefully that won't be too long now!
