Quoted Text

It seems like I have one of the combatants, but not the other. I have a Mirage III, and A Mig-17, but I was going to do the Mig-17 in NVAF. Could I do an Egyptian Mig-21?
I have a F4F Wildcat; I would need to get a KI-43 Oscar.


Weii,I have a KI-43 now so we will see.

For the first time ever, I decided to be proactive and ordered the kits yesterday and they arrived today. Now I will not be tail end Charlie this time

Dear Dog Fights campaign participants:

Here at AeroScale we're constantly testing the waters to see how we can make your online modeling experience even better. Due to some suggestions around campaign organization, we've decided to change things up a bit to encourage participation and completion of models. To that end, we're changing the one campaign start per month rule to two and allowing started kits into the standard (as opposed to hanger queen) campaigns.

Therefore, with the consent of your campaign leader, this campaign will now start on April 1, 2015 and run 'til March 31, 2016. In addition, models up to 33% started will be allowed.

We hope you will agree with these changes and they will encourage you to join in and finish campaigns here on AeroScale!

Nudge nudge everyone, still no ribbon for this campaign. Any ideas?

Hi all!
Where are the participants for this campaign? Only 5 enlisted...?
Thinking about to take part (2 Kits are a challenge but finish line is far) with my recent arrived 1:48 Airfix-"Dogfight Doubles"-Kit includes a Bf109 E & Spit Mk Vb fighting above Malta.
Should be great fun...,first look is promising. Picture follows.

Since I failed (again) to finish a Campaign (Hawkeye now goes to "Hangar Queen" - next chance) I'll hope to make this one.

Meanwhile a suggestion for a Ribbon/Banner. What do you think?











Cheers, Thomas

Man, I SERIOUSLY don't have time in the schedule for this; but it's going to be really hard not to do the Academy F-4C as Robin Old's aircraft and the Eduard MiG-21PF as Nguyen Van Coc's. I don't know that Coc was involved in the Bolo battle but it's the right unit (921st Fighter Regiment). Where do I find the time?!

It's time for this one to leave the ground. The Dog Fights Campaign has officially begun. If you want it, the official campaign thread is here. Post all your comments and progress there. This thread will now be locked.

Looking forward to this one!
