I want to know where you're finding reasonably priced Arrow kits. I've long wanted to do a WHIF of an Arrow in SEA camouflage.

Micheal I am going with Avro Vulcan, it arrived Thursday.
Mark I still haven't found a reasonably priced Avro Arrow. The kits i did find are out of my reach.

I've got the Astra vac kit which you can have for the price of the postage if you want it.

So, since this is (technically) the second delta wing campaign on AeroScale, how's this for a ribbon?





Simple, but to the point, so to speak.

@Darrell, Have at it! I'm not brave enough to tackle a vac.

@Michael, good idea, it translates well into the ribbon size.

Nice ribbon, I like it!

The Draken is out for this campaign, I couldn't wait and started it one day before Christmas Eve
But there is still its successor, the J37 Viggen, in my stash...

Viggen would be very interesting to see getting built. I have one in stash (1/48 AJ-37 by Special Hobby), but I think I'll pick something simpler to paint for this campaign. It'll probably be either Mirage III or Kfir.

Well Pasi, I have the old Heller 1/72 Viggen with a few resin improvements (cockpit interior, bang seat, air intakes) for some years now and I'm looking forward to build it for this campaign (hopefully). But I will definitely paint it grey, the splinter camouflage is way out of my painting possibilities, besides I like the big dayglo numbers on the wings

My 1/72 Astra Avro Arrow kit arrived last Tuesday. Thanks Jessie. I am going to be stupid and have a shot at building that kit for this campaign. Hope I can finish it in time.

I have an old Heller 1/48 mirage I want to build for this campaign. Always wanted to do that smooth sand and brown wavy camouflage on the top of the fuselage.

Well, 1 February is pretty much here, so time to launch this one. The official thread can be found here. Please post all your campaign related pics and discussion there. This thread will now be locked.

Let's see those flying triangles go!
