After checking the stash I have 16 kits that fill the bill for this campaign. The scales range from 1/72 to 1/32. I am leaning toward a Hasagawa 1/72 F-86D. I have shied away from bare metal finishes and this would be a good time and kit to start with. I have all these experianced flying thingy builders to ask for advice.

Pricklehead, nice choice! Are you going with the colorful box art scheme?

I am in. Probably with a Vampire or a ME 262.

Well, looks like it's 1 December (or pretty darn close) in Greenwich, so I'm declaring this campaign started!

The official campaign thread is here. This current thread will now be locked.

Time to light those babies up!
