    1 Wing RNAS - Redford Henry 'Red' Mulock (Serial 3977 - red paint scheme) and Daniel Murray Bayne Galbraith (Serial 3986 - dark blue paint scheme). The serial numbers are for planes these pilots flew but the paint schemes are fictitious. The blue one was inspired by a later one for a RNAS Sopwith Camel (B7190 - WGR Hinchliffe). They will form part of my RNAS scout flight for the upcoming OTT campaign.

    Finally took the dive into making my own decals. Learned quite a bit. Repainted some Hanriot HD1 planes using the 76 sqdrl as a base plane.

    The first plane is the stock Scaroni. I repainted the tail and touched up the plane. Had several little black dots over it so I cleaned all that up.

    I think this is part of correcting the current troubles. It will go back to normal when its figured out and fixed.

    Here the blue RNAS Nieuport 11 'fixed' with a blue outline to the white bars on the wings. Not demarcation lines, although the lines serve that purpose, but tape along the rib that separates the white from the CDL. I had debated whether or not to have a blue edging. The white shows up well enough to the eye but not to the camera and these schemes are meant for the OTT AAR so in went the blue lines.

    This is one of the Shapeways 1/700 freighters from 'Clear Air Turbulence.' Now I need to complete some seaplanes to attack it.

    These freighters are by Clear Air Turbulence. It's called a 'Three Island Cargo Ship'. It is available in WSF and FUD.

    Decapod (maker of airplanes) has a EFC 1020 'Laker' in 1/600 and 1/700 scales. He also has a EFC 1013 freighter in 1/600 and 1/700 scales. I have both but have not painted them up yet.

    Classic Airships has a Submarine Type UBIII (waterline model) in 1/600 and 1/700 scales. This is a triple pack. I do not have this model, but plan to order it to use in Teaticket's Mission 19 solo scenario.
    So how many books are in your personal library?

    2 ANATRA DS "Anasal". Again RAF planes and MISCMINI decals.

    In preparing for the upcoming Battle of Britain campaign I have been madly touching up and adding decals to the aircraft I bought over 3 years ago.
    These are the 'Squadron Packs' that came with decals (and much-needed touch ups) - at least for the RAF Spitfires and Hurricanes.

    Between my eyesight and the fiddly little decals I can really appreciate the work that some of you display every month ...


    1/200 is definitely harder for me to work on compared to the 1/144 of WGF


    Me109E-3 of JG2


    All I did to these was add the fiddly little decals.



    Spitfires and Hurricanes


    Touched up and decaled Spits


    303 Squadron Hurricanes


    Touched up and decaled


    I made some into RAF 242 Squadron since I will be flying that one in the campaign, and finally did up Percy Burton (GN H). Flash posted this picture and and article about him back in 2015 and I said I would do a Hurricane in his honour. I had expected to have to repaint a Belgian or Russian Hurricane to do that, but purchased enough of the newer ones to use one of them.



    Speaking of the newer ones ....


    I guess I should pay closer attention when I check in my orders.

    (Notice the missing nose cone/propeller)
    I got this one with my initial BoB order from Keith but never opened every package and put them away for later use.
    I have contacted Ares and they are sending me a replacement.

    Fokker EIII of Ernst Udet (KeK Habsheim) and Gotthard Sachsenberg (1 Marine FFA). My first EIII since my first Valom kits. This time the landing struts are all Valom photo-etched parts! The original two Valom EIII are in the final photo.

    More planes to build / paint for the OTT campaign but this should do me for at least the first mission. Now to finish off my Nieuport 11 for my OTT scout flight.

    Bob, don't sell yourself short. You do all of those really tiny decals on the WWS planes and do a great deal of research for the more esoteric paint schemes.

    I like those Russian Front planes!

    Bob, since you're moving into WWF planes, here are some reasonable Nieuport re-paints:

    1) Dutch

    2) Romanian Ni11

    3) Ukrainian Ni17

    4) Siamese

    5) Serbian - seems very similar to French ones - so easiest of all?

    The Dutch one seems easy to do but the Ukrainian one with the eagle decal would be very snazzy.

    Funny you mentioned Siamese. I see that they had a Br 14 and have a replica at the museum in Bangkok. Wish I was into this more when I was stationed there. Would have been a nice trip down there. I have to check into some of the other ones you mentioned. Since some of the family is from Ukraine that would be a good choice also. Thanks for the links.
    They wife says the numbers on the Siamese planes are 23 and 30. I do have those decals so may be in the next order.

    I look forward to seeing those and maybe the Ukrainian one too. Wings palette has some Red Army Nieuports that would be suitable opponents.

    Is WWF the World Wrestling Federation? I just designed airplane card backs for Romania, Ukraine, and Siam. Serbian looks like French so use that, although the Yugoslav roundel with the cross is interesting. Dutch is kind of boring.
    So how many books are in your personal library?
