    Hmmm... 4th Quarter 2019. October-December.

    Time enough to save up some money?

    There are so few places to buy any of our planes these days we will not have anyone to fly against . . . I suppose we could merge with BRS.

    As much as I would have preferred them to come out in Q4 2017 or even Q4 2018, and even though I already have three of each Ju-88's, Do-17's, Blenheim MkIVs and SM-79s from other sources I will still be picking up this set for the day when I again have time to get some planes on the table.

    (looks wistfully into the distant future)

    Well done, Mark, thank you for your work.

    Having produced 6 off very nice Zvesda JU88's I will not be buying the Ares offering. I will wait and see what the Dorniers look like as I would quite like some of those.

    Dorniers and Blenheims are all that I need, as I have self built and painted my Italians and Junkers.

    Thank you for the picture, Mark.

    According to this picture, the left Ju.88 appears to have a shorter wingspan than the Ju.88 on the right.
    The left Ju.88 might be an A-1 version (18,37 meters wingspan). The miniature seems to have pairs of bombs under the wings between the engine and the fuselage.
    The right Ju.88 could be an A-4 version (or any late A version - 20 meters wingspan). The miniature seems to carry torpedoes under the wings between the engine and the fuselage (A-17 version had 2 torpedoes LT F5b).

    PS: It will be really interesting to see what ARES puts out for Plane and Management cards for these planes. Perhaps including Torpedo rules?

    I do hope so Mike.
    You chaps have good eyesight, or maybe it is just me!
    Anyway, that revised my buyers intentions. Must have a pair of each of those. The torpedo carriers will be great for Malta.

    The upshot for not having any interest in these airplanes is more money in my account for flight training. Leaded airplane fuel is expensive.

    If nothing else, having the official decks for these planes, plus then possibly matching unofficial ones better.

    I guess SM.79 without torpedo rules does not make sense. And I think Mike knows something special, right, Mike?

    Failing that I will continue to use neil's torpedo rules which have served us well over the last three years or so. Taranto proved that!

    No reason why not to do - sometimes, home rules work better than original.

    [joke]
    By the way, we resolved night fighing rules... Sometimes we feel sad nobody see nice painted bellies of our minis, so I proposed play on mirror. But it must be outside to have the sky reflection on it to feel like between clouds. Then the easiest thing is wait until dark falls and play with "night rules".

    Luckily, my foray into WW2 is still somewhat limited, so I will be getting plenty of these models... I am particularly looking forward to the SM79s...

    All the best,

    I don't have any advanced info on this release, Dan. I haven't been play-testing any WWII rules.

    You have not been there? I thought you were playing it, but I see I was wrong. Hard to keep my memories. Anyway, you know at least something (that they are in progress)
