    Nice job on those tanks. Love the camo on the German one. BattleFront makes WWI tanks for their Great War game but those look to be resin models.

    Clearing away all the garbage, you can now see the "models" a bit better:

    All of them, I was blessed with a bag-o-people in 1//144-1/200 scale by Zoe years ago. The planes were started by Hunter, mostly primed so I decided to finish them for him. The 3 HP'0400's are currently in the paint shop . . . getting desert colors since its AZ.

    Last month I did some Thai Hawk's. Over the months I have done a few for different air forces. Other then the Hawks and a few other American planes the Thais also had Japanese planes from before the start of WWII and then when the Japanese occupied Thailand. Here are some Ki 30 ANN's.

    The elephant was the marking they had when allied with Japan. I saw a few different camo schemes and this is what I came up with. I know Zoe did an Oscar at one time and mine are no match for what she did.

    Finished up the three griffons for my "Jasta Greif" game for Origins - now on to finishing the six German planes to fly alongside them...

    All things considered, I am pleased with how these little beasties turned out - they are lovely little models. I had Keith make some custom bases for them, and I need to order one more (operator error ruined one as I was finishing them up...)

    Chris I posted a YOU TUBE video about the RTAF museum. Its in the Officer Club section. It will give you an idea of what they had. When they fought the French in late 1940 their AF was actually better then the French. The Thais had 24 H75's and the French had only 9 Ms 406's. In 1940 the Thais had Sally,s and Ann's. Later they had Nate's and Oscar's. I still have the Sally's and Nate's to paint.

    Yes, I should get some from Dave, my jets are from Hunters collection and are 1/144" scale F-toys- prepainted - too easy! The Migs are getting hard to find at decent prices. The whole jet thing is new and cool to the elves . . .

    I have used Folk Art on other projects, Daniel, and I find it a bit thick - I think if I were going to use it on small planes, I would thin it a bit with water - maybe two parts paint and one part water...

    Nate, the griffons are for D&D - I am using them for a scenario with WWI planes - late war. I will post the rules in the files section once I finish them. I have played two play-test sessions, and they work pretty well. The griffons have no ranged combat - they must close and melee...

    Beautiful work, Bob, on your SE Asian planes - WW2 and more modern. They would go nicely with Dave's Thud and F-86...

    Haven't painted the 105's yet. Awhile ago I mentioned to Kevin that all his Viet Nam US decals were for Navy planes. Last month I get an email that he did some USAF ones. Now I have to get 3 mort F-4's for the 433r TFS. That's the squadron Robin Olds commanded and did operation BOLO.

    theyre a mix of "the great war; tank expansion" and "flames of war" minis. i got them because ive always wanted some ww1 tanks (though i originally wanted 1/35 scale) and to use in a "savage worlds; weird war one" rollplaying campaign (think ww1 meets zombies and dragons).

    Wow, Mike - that is spectacular! The design is just fine the way it is Could I request that you change the Damage from B deck to A deck, though? I have the griffons rated as A damage, especially as they have to close to melee to inflict damage...

    [Edited: Now showing "10" rather than "Ten"]

    The script on the card back is supposed to be the Thai numerals for "10". I guess they don't use 1 and 0 to make the number as we do. Things you learn doing cards...

    Greetings Daniel. Sorry to see the paint go bad! I used to use all the range of such paints and had this happen once. Some of the craft paints are acrylic and some are an acrylic enamel which over time tend to gel and thicken. Thinning them out with water can help, but if two paints mix wet or nearly dry they can have such a reaction. I soaked the model in hot soapy water, removed the paint and started over with a new bottle of paint. Since those days I have settled on Valaro (sp) paints and they have been a delightful change and are now available at Hobby Lobby stores in the model department. Carry on! What scale is the Spitfire? Looks cool.

    Mike that is fantastic. Wasn't expecting that. I will ask the wife what number that is but I know it isn't 10. When she get back I will have her look. Yes they used Thai writing for their numbers on the planes.

    Here is a clearer photo of the planes. The middle one is # 11. The first squiggles are #1 in Thai.

    OK Mike. The wife just came home and told me the difference. What I have on the plane is 11, Thai numbers. What you have on the card is the word TEN (SIP) in Thai. So it would be like having the planes number 10 rather then Ten.
