I know the start date is a month away, but figured I'd declare my subject for this campaign.

Nice choice Chris! The Classic Airframes kit?

I'm about to get started on the 1/24 Airfix Typhoon myself. I know it doesn't qualify for this campaign (I'm doing it for Hot Out of the Molds), but I was thinking I might do the Airfix 1/24 Hurricane for this campaign as sort of a set. We'll see how much progress I make.

One month to go for the start folks!

Yes, its the CA kit (early version). Have seen other build ups of it and it seems to be one of CA' better kits. We will see.....

Really like 1/24 scale but I have no place to put them once built. I have had the airfix hurricane kit for over 20 years now. Maybe one day and I'll hang it from the kitchen ceiling (wife will love that )

Keeping to 1/72, I was notified that my Tamiya Spitfire Mk.1 is waiting for me at the local hobby shop, so I'll be able to jump off soon after the first of April starting date!
I know I said a Hurricane originally, but I didn't see an early one until just now. Besides, every collection should have a Spitfire in it.

Just enlisted. I'll be building the Airfix 1/24 Hurricane 1. The kit that I have is the boxed set, and I'll use the kit paints as far as possible (but not the 'orrible brush they include!)

Michael! That Dornier-Defiant combo just landed in my mailbox. I'll probably do a Defiant if I don't run out of time, then I have two 144 Hurricanes as back-ups!

Only a few days to go and it sounds like we have some good plans getting ready!

I've got a few campaigns builds on the go but this one does great. And I've also just got the Airfix Dogfight Double Dornier and Defiant set so I might just have to enlist.

It's April 1 in Jolly Olde England so the Battle of Britain 75 campaign has officially begun. To get in on it, go to the official thread here. This thread will now be locked.

See you on the other side!
