How about a campaign for fancy aircraft? Demo teams, display teams, demo or display aircraft, etc. We haven't done anything like that for a while, could make for some pretty schemes!

Oooh, I have a Dead Sparrows Hawk, Frecce Tricolori MB-339, Patrouile de France Alpha Jet, Snowturkeys Tutor and Thunderchickens F-16 buried in the stash. I think that I may have a subject which could be built here.

I'd be in! Got an F-16 and F-18 that would fit the bill.

Sadly nothing in stash, which means I would have to buy a new kit.

I'm in.

Atta boy Pasi!

That's 5.

I live in Colorado Springs and the Air Force Academy graduation is today. That means The Thunderbirds! And apparently they're planning to fly over the entire front range after the graduation. So I'm going to be getting a little air show today, anyway!

Michael, on the edge of goofy, I've got the old 1/72 Heller T-33 with the Thunderbirds markings. I assume it's a support A/C from the early years. Doing the job that TB #7 or BA #7 does nowadays, doing press flights.
Would something like that count?

Far as I'm concerned, that counts!

I build a lot of modern Japanese aircraft, so I have no end of special schemes to choose from in the stash!

I am a sucker for brightly colored Display/Demo aircraft. I have plenty of relevant decals in the stash, so the problem will be in choosing one. Depending on the timing, count me in!
Have fun modeling

Great! If I'm counting right, that's 8. Only two more needed to launch this one!

Count me in, Michael, as I fell for a F-5E Tiger with 75th anniversary markings of the Swiss Air Force at my local dealer a few weeks ago.
Anyway there's a MB-339 (Frecce Tricolori) in my stash and I'm always prepared to get me a Red Arrows Hawk anytime...
Looking forward to the campaign!

Thanks Peter, I thought this one was dead.

I believe that's 9. Anyone else?

I have an AMT 1/48 F/A-18 that could be built as a BLUE ANGEL.

This is the scheme I was thinking of opting for, like the Black livery too

Just signed up for this as my first ever campaign. I'll be doing a 1/48 EMB-314 Super Tucano from the Brazilian Smoke Squadron. It will be OOB except for the decals from Caracal. Here's hoping it goes well.

Oh, forgot I'm already in. Sure it's gonna be an F-16, just don't know if it's a YF=16, F-16XL or F-16 CCV.
