I have a HobbyBoss F4F4 that would fit the bill.

This looks like an interesting campaign.
Depending on how I'm doing for time later in the year I might join in with an old Mania Hobby Type 99 bomber I recently picked up.

I'm in with a 1/32 Hasegawa Ki-84 Frank. Checking aftermarket as we speak

I have the HMS Prince of Wales if floaty things are allowed in.



It's the Pacific; floaty things are definitely allowed!

I just might sign up & pull my old Hasegawa F6F-3 out of the stash. Let's see if I manage to combine model time along with my Gekko build in the night shift campaign

Good question Linus. Rules state "Aircraft/Vehicle", doesn't include Floaties, doesn't exclude Floaties. I don't get a vote, but I say why not?

Have some stuff to join with, so I'm in

As for today most probably with Dutch Buffalo (Tamiya 1/48) of Militaire Luchtvaart van het Koninklijk Nederlands-Indisch Leger

Cheers,
Radek

Bought a PBJ-1H conversion set for HK Model's B-25H:





Oh wow, I'm in love!


I may just finish my Corsair now and build something far more intriguing for this group build.

Both planes flew from Philippines, so should be good for this campaign. I'll post a proper startup picture with the kit once the campaign starts.

I'm not sure about the tail numbers (11) on 8-ball: what I've seen, it's 8. But 11 could be another (later) plane of same crew? Also top turret and forward facing side mounted machine gun pods could be removed. I'll probably try to build "Love Bug" without the MGs, for which I have photographic evidence.

I was planning to build something smaller, but I need to free some space from my kit stash



Pasi,

That should be quite the undertaking! It certainly will fit the campaign profile, looking forward to it.

Love Bug was lost over Ponape and was based at Eniwetok.

Hi all,

Ha! I knew that this would happen! This is the one that I really relish, and I'm looking to move at the end of November... No way to complete one for this before I go, the queue is full. Looks like I'll be setting up and giving it a go in my new place! I'm in. With what? I'll let the wife make the call.

Ov Vey, so many campaigns, so little time.
A part started PV-2 (but was it Atlantic or Pacific)
A started PBJ (but the depicted version only Flew in the Atlantic)
A started F4F, but which theater...
Both an F4U-4 & -5 but are they too late for PTO
An F6F-3N, but I've saving it for Night Fighters
A started P-39 for Guadalcanal
A pair of PBYs
A brace of SBDs
And maybe even a TBM
Nah, the only decision is what am I going to give up to be in this campaign, working or sleeping?

Damn you guys for starting this three weeks after I started Tamiya's F4U-1A



Matt,

If it's less than 25% done you can stop working on it now and wait for the campaign to start. Though I know stopping work on a 1/32 Tamiya kit is nearly impossible!

Michael




It sure is. I'm in!

Hi Michael, I have Verlinden 120mm Navy pilot in the stash. Are figures in? The campaign page rule section has no mention of "dudes" however you mention them in first post on possible campaign. If its cool count me in......



Dudes are in. Gals too, if you can make one fit the theme!

I've wanted to build Pappy Boyington's Corsair for years. Alway had a soft spot for VMF-214 when they were at MCAS El Toro
