    It looks really good. Are you using 1/144 scale planes for your WGS games?

    Thank's
    Yes I use 1/144 except for the Battle of Britain for which I use the original planes. I made my Heinkel 111 when they were not available.
    I chose 1/144 mainly for the Pacific because you'got a lot of choice.
    For the Mavis ,I forgot the yellow stripe at the front of the wing

    I was originally going to use 1/144 scale for WGS as well because there were so many models out there for it and a lot of those were prepainted as well. We ended up not playing WGS very often, so I never worked out all the details for it. Did you adjust the range ruler size or anything else to accommodate the larger minis?

    Nothing specials, just adjust the planes to the peg.
    At the beginning I made specials "pegs" with different size to avo´d collisions of the models and note the altitude on a paper but after I just use the normal pegs because it was not really useful.
    There's pictures of our games here:

    With the different pegs

    Very nice Mavis. I have quite a number of 1/144 F Toys as I got hooked when playing with Rich down in VA. Still have a number of boxes with them not built.
