  • Colbatman Memorial Raffle

    As many of you know, on July 2nd of this year, we lost one of our Australian pilots, Colbatman. The Col, as he was called by friends and fellow pilots, was an active member of his local gaming group and promoted not only playing Wings of Glory, but also the hobby side of the game with painting many planes. Before his passing, the Col selected two of his lovingly painted and rigged Shapeways planes to be raffled off in his memory. Here in the very near future his surviving wife will be moving so that she can be closer to their son. As we all know, moving always comes with extra financial expenses and the funds raised here could really help the Col’s family out.

    In honor of his request, it is with fond thoughts and a heavy heart that I post the Colbatman Memorial Raffle. This raffle will have two groups of prizes.

    The first group in concludes a Caudron F-40 in Belgian colours with its unique "grinning skull" nose art plus a Vickers FB 5 "gunbus" in CDL British finish.
    As you can see both models are rigged to Col's excellent standard.









    This group of prizes will be awarded to one lucky winner.


    The next group of prizes, one each of the Wings of War RAF R.E. 8 miniatures, was graciously donated by 7eat51 and will be awarded to a second winner.







    Everyone that enters the raffle will be awarded the Colbatman Memorial Medal to proudly display on their profile page and each of their posts.



    Please use the Paypal drop down and button below to purchase the raffle tickets. Each ticket is $5 and you can purchase as many tickets as you like.

    Blue Skies Col.


    This raffle is now closed and the winner will be drawn later today!

    If this was for me then probably not. It would be one heck of a road trip to visit a game shop!

    The shop is located in Unley which is right next to the city of Adelaide CBD. First tram stop past South Terrace in fact. 27 King William road and King

    Nice job with the card. I am guessing you managed to get rid of the text that does not relate at the bottom of the card?

    Small scale WWII ships?

    Does anyone know of some small scale, 2"-6", WWII-ish era plastic ships? My son is going through a military ship phase that I'd like to encourage.

    Oops. I assumed from the first post Unley was a city! Well, if I had the correct store there weren’t any WOG old series out there.

    Thanks everyone.

    The op went well and everything looks good. I've got a large "soft cast" on and multiple layers of slings on.

    We did the historical twelve five hundred pound bombs for the B-17s, at two Ds per bomb, if they hit.

    Oh, yes! It is.

    Only the sizing and intent is marginally different. My only defense in this case is that I am using the output to stimulate

    It showed the teqnique well. How did you decide on the bomb loads and the damage factor which was most appropriate for the impact.
