Now that's how to print instructions! A real nice find Prof, even the crew figures don't look too out of scale.  8)

Picked up some advanced German WWII tech kits to go with my Weird War II gaming.  Thought I'd do a game with a couple Natters where some US Rangers would have to secure them so they can be studied for the American war effort. 

Next is trying to find a 1/48 V2 and some of it's support vehicles without having to put a second mortgage on my house. ;)  Quarter Kits is so expensive!

Why not try the Pegasus Hobbies one?

Since it´s an American company, you should be able to find a stockist in the US. I´ve built some of their tanks, great models and swell value for money.

Additionally, Revell Germany just re-issued an ancient 1/69th scale V2. You could possibly build an Amerikageschoss with one of those and one of the Pegasus ones... or look for the 1/35th Dragon Models one.

I begin to suspect that the Prof sold his soul in order to get his hands on all those beautiful models...  :o :o :o

What does a used, one owner, slightly tarnished soul go for these days anyway? Would I get a Trumpeter 1/48 Fw-200 Condor for it? Just a 1/144 DC-10?

Just got me a Testors Spad XIIIc



A lovely, simple model to make at a very reasonable price at my local hobby store.

Its going to be painted in the colours of the Gansu Republican Airforce colours, the famous Jiuquan squadron
of circa 1921 (more on that, eventually in the BoB forum).

Beauty, and one I've built before. WWI planes are tough, since they are so small, even when compared to small WWII planes.
My dad is building a SPAD XIII right now, full scale though, all wood construction, for the Yankee Air Museum.

These are Skytrex 1/144 I'll use for Wings of War. They're included in the forthcoming WoW-boosters Immelmann and Dogfight.

They are:
Fokker E.III
Airco DH.2
RAF SE5a
Siemens-Schuckert D.III
Siemens-Schuckert D.IV
Fokker E.V / D.VIII (okay, this one has no stats in WoW, but I needed it!)
