Hi again

I'll post this here until we get an official thread:



I've made a start on the AMTech Ju 88H-4. The fuselage sections took more sanding than I'd expected to get them to match up because they're not quite the same cross-section. There are a few sink marks to take care of too, but I'm underway.

All the best

Rowan

Rowan,
Congrats on being the 1st one to start their actual build. Hoping to get started within in a week or so.

Never had the honor of interacting with Russell personally but had a lot of help from him in a few campaigns that we participated in together. It would be an honor to participate in this campaign. I will be building the Ju88 Heavy Fighter version. Won't be able to start till April but this is one deadline that i won't miss.

Started today with the Hasegawa F-106 Delta Dart







Cockpit pretty basic.



Edit:
Funny thing is, the last conversation I had with Russell it was about Trumpeter's Su-15, which I'm currently building for the Trumpeter's Campaign at Armorama.

Hello everyone. My name is Bennett, and I am the Campaign Leader, having made the original campaign suggestion. I don't know that makes me the campaign administrator. I thought Micheal was the administrator.
Anyway, I would like to see this campaign go well, with its own official thread. I want everyone to have fun, and give their finest. This is my first time as leader, and I may need some help. Its especially difficult for me right now, because I'm not well myself, and I'm not sure I'll make it. But I'm going to try. Not sure what I'm building. Lets have fun, and remember our friend.

Cheers Joel

With my reputation, while I may be the first to start, I can almost guarantee I won't be first to finish!

All the best

OK, I'm ready to go:



There are marking options for 3 different planes. Don, which version are you doing? I'd like to avoid duplicating your markings. I'm leaning towards the OD over natural metal 361st FG 375 FS.

Hi All

Ben is correct that Micheal is the Admin and Ben is the leader.

As i can still moderate this forum I've created the official thread and it can be found Here

As the offical thread is now open, I'll lock this thread.

Lets see some great builds in memory of Russell.
