Thread: K Deck?

  1. #1

    Default K Deck?

    Hello there,

    I'm thinking about getting a Fiat G.50 at Shapeways and looking into the Unofficial Aircraft Data it supposes to use the K Deck. Is there an official K Deck for WGS? If not, what does it look like?

    Regards,
    Dennis

    There was one in the WoW Revolution in the Sky Booster pack Dennis. No idea what it looks like but some chaps here use them with I-16's so they will know.

    Hmmm... I don't have either of the J, nor K decks in my MATES cards. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. Now I'll have to find someone to scan them and send me the images to build up those cards. I was wondering why there was a gap, because there weren't any official minis flying them.

    Found a reference pdf for both decks in the files, and with the speed Xcel sheet, I could fake a MATES set. K decks were 3.5mm fast arrows (slow C deck) and 2.1mm slow arrows (fast XB deck).

    Mike,
    I have several K-decks, which I use for my Fokker D.XXI's and Fokker G.1's.
    There are 18 cards in the deck, 2 straights (#1 and 2), 2 each long rights (#3 and 4) and lefts (#5 and 6), 2 each sharp(ish) rights (#7 and 8) and lefts (#9 and 10), 1 stall (#11), 1 immelmann (#12), 1 each of the sideslip left and right (slow or fast)(#13 and 14), 1 each of the sideslip left and right (fast only)(#15 and 16), 1 dive (#17) and 1 climb (#17).
    I hope this helps ...

    When (if) I can work out how scanning works I'll scan a deck for you.

    cheers,
    Guus

    Mike, My PSD file is mega as it contains all the backgrounds, etc. would it be any use to you if I strip it back to the lines/arrows and send it to you?

    Just in case anyone is looking for these, be advised that the Miniature Market descriptions are inaccurate.

    MM lists the "Revolution in the Sky" booster as containing "3 decks of Maneuver cards (K)" but in truth, Revolution in the Sky contains two J decks and one K deck.

    MM lists the "Last Biplanes" booster as containing "2 decks of Maneuver cards (J)" but in truth, Last Biplanes contains two L decks.

    I have the relevant boosters at hand as I type this.

    I ran into that when I ordered from them, thinking I'd get a deck on sale. Initially, I ordered both boosters to get the J and K decks, and something was nagging in the back of my head about the descriptions. I checked the Complete Listing here on the Forum, and yup, the descriptions were wrong.

    It took a bit of messing up the order to straighten it out, but I got the "non-sale" deck I needed, not the double L deck booster I didn't.

    Now, both the J and K decks are in my MATES II album: WGS MATES Cards
