I'm very glad to see all the positive response!

As far as a ribbon goes, I was thinking of something like this:

Not very imaginative, I know. And it leaves out the Italians. But I think it gets the point across. Of course, always open to suggestions!

I was hoping you'd go somewhere in that direction, Michael. Well done, me thinks.

Hi there,

BoB is always a modelling classic isn't it? So like all classics it's worth revisiting.

Unless some tasty new kit pop's up I'd like to go with an jabo Emil based on Xtradecal BoB decal sheet.

Cheers

Great Bob, a classic! Anyway, how could someone with your name avoid entering a BoB campaign!

Who makes the best 1/48 Gloster Gladiator?

Everyone doing an RAF Subject will be doing Hurricanes and Spitfires so I'd like to do a Gladiator from 247 Squadron.

Michael,

I think the consensus is that the Roden kit is the best in 1/48 (though Pyro/Impact/etc. ain't too bad). I think you'd want the Mk.II. And welcome!

I'm in.
Havn't done any modelling for a few years so some what rusty.
Former RAF myself and having met a few BOB pilots it will be a memorial to their bravery.
