Hi all,

I am keen to seek your opinion on which plane I should build for the Campaign as I have too many favorites. i am leaning towards two in particular but want to see what you all think:


i like both "Balls Out" and "Duck Butt" on this sheet



I also like the middle plane in this set as it has nose art on both sides and is quite colorful.



I like the bottom plane here:



And finally something completly different, a Mexican P-47:



So, which one?

Whats wrong with building all 4???

If not, i'd go Mexican, just for being different!

I have to admit I've always fancied doing a Mexican Bolt (one of the reasons for suggesting a foreign forces campaign) but I've never got round to getting the decals. Second choice would be "Duck Butt"

I'd go with either Duck Butt or the Mehican version. But that's just me because you know opinions are just like.......ahh......nevermind!!

Best....

Ok with not long till the campaign kicks off, I am leaning toward "Duck Butt" slightly...any last minute suggestions?

I must admit that i dont have any other info on either plane and this will only be my 6th Model build so I am not too fanatical with getting a 100% accurate detail on this plane and will be happy if I can get the metal finish looking good.

If anyone does have any advice or references to either of these 2 options, they would be most welcomed.

Hopefully I can get the build going and pics coming soon as we kick off!
