Hey! Mark do you think it can carry all of that at once?


John: nice photos and I thought that I had trouble with nose weight

Does the aircraft need ballast, or does the pilot need some exercise ?

So many choices for this one... not even a Mk.XX Campaign would cover, anyway I have plenty to choose from and we're months away.
I might do one of the Sukhoi's this year and leave the Thunderchief for the Campaign. Or the other way around..

Actually, it doesn't start until June 20115!! It's so far off in the future at this point that I'm not even thinking about what to build, as my previous record indicates that I'll change my mind over and over again. Honestly, at this point I'm not even sure if I'm leaning towards a jet, prop, or even a helicopter.

So many choices, so much time to think about it.

Just a reminder here, but there's still no ribbon loaded for this campaign. Always a good idea to have a flashy ribbon, it can drive enlistment!

Michael,
agreed. For the Grumman campaign,I decided on the ribbon after input from those already enlisted.

Michael, you are correct a ribbon would be nice. If anyone has the ability to produce a ribbon for this campaign I am all for it since my computer is on the blitz and I am unable to use my paint program.

How about something like this as a Campaign Ribbon, just an idea. Combines the fighter(minigun) and bomber(bomb).

It will have to be resized as a ribbon.

Remember that whatever design you choose has to be readable at a size of 50 X 18 pixels. Anything you design has to fit inside this box:

You need to keep your design bold and simple if it's not going to be an unreadable jumble. Take a look through the campaigns page at ribbons of the past campaigns to get a feel for what works, then make your design accordingly.

Ok, just got a new computer and hope to try out the paint program to try my hand at a ribbon.

Darrell, I think your idea looks good. Could you give it some color for the background?
