If nobody has any objections, I think we can go ahead with this ribbon.
I started to cut plastic Yesterday, unfortunately today my two year old son has hidden the instruction sheet somewhere so I need to find it before I go ahead with the build (I know I know I shouldnt have let him play with it). Im not that familiar with the Dragonfly as to attempt a construction without instructions

Yes Franck, the second yellow and black choice, the one without 1950s across the stripes.

I think I like the plain (plane?) yellow and black stripes. Didn't know about them in Suez, yellow and black were also used on some 4th Fighter Interceptor group in Korea.

Sorry for the late reply on the ribbon question, I was bussy today with final touch-ups on the Hurricane for the MTO Campaign. Both ribbons suggested so far are cool - the thermometer suggested by Frank and the stripes suggested by Jessie. I will try to do the stripes ribbon tomorrow - provided I didnt forget how to use Corel

Thanks Michael!
I didn't know what to think about #1.
I think Jessica had an idea for #2 but I don't know how to do graphics.
Take Care,

I had a couple of questions:
1. Why is the campaign running for less than the usual 6 months?
2. Does anyone else have an idea for a ribbon?
Just my 2 cents of comments.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"




Don,

The answer to your first question is: Because I can't do math. It's fixed now.

Don't have an answer to the second one, that's on our Fearless Leader Jacob to decide.

Here's the kit I will be building. I changed my mind and decided not to do Jesse Brown's Corsair. I understand the HobbyBoss F4U-4 is a better kit so I'll build one some day.




I haven't decided if I'll use AM parts, I have a cockpit and wheels. Does anyone know if the True Details cockpit would fit into the HobbyBoss kit? It is made specifically for the Hasegawa F4U-4.
Take care,

@Mihael : Surely now, who would not quit his job to do models ? , nah Im kidding, it wasnt what it used to be so I figured lets have an "extended" holiday over Christmas.

@Franck : Seafire would be interesting for sure, which kit do You have in mind ?

i've a lot of planes in my stash who fought during the korean war, the malaya incidents, the indochina war. so it's difficult to choose a kit.

i think, i'll make a Beaufighter for the malaya incident and a seafire mk.47 for the korean war.

Ah Scrap I got the Hong Kong 1/144 Meteor in a goodie bag at at model convention but it didn't have any decals. Finding 1/144 RAAF/RAF decals on this side of the pond is a bit problematic.

The F-80 is starting to look like a go.

@Jacob, I hate you, I've wanted that one in 1/72 since the last time I saw "The Bridges of Toko-Ri"

Another campaign I'm behind on and it just started. Haven't decided between a Korean Corsair, F-80, or a possible Suez Gloster Meteor. I'd love to do the Meteor, it's 1/144 but I think the plastic is a Mk IV and the decals are for a Mk VIII. Could anyone tell the difference???



Oh yes. The Mk 8 Meatbox had an entirely different tail and a longer fuselage. All is not lost, however. Miniwings does a Mk 8 in 1/144. In larger scales there's the Hannants/MPM/Airfix 1/72 and Airfix 1/48 kits.

So here is my entry for the campaign. Not sure yet if the camo will be for Marines or Navy, both got heavily involved during Korean war. I have quit my job, so hopefully this build will go quick!



Quitting your job seems like kind of an extreme length to go to in order to get a model done!

The thermometer ribbon looks fun, I like it.

My entry is Israeli M1 Super Sherman from Sinai 1956 with Friul tracks:



I'll probably buy PE set for headlight guards. Originally I wanted to build Israeli Spitfire, but I couldn't find any documentation whether the decal choices I have were actually used in combat in 1950s. The M1 was my backup, and I believe it will be a nice kit to build.

Oddly enough found couple of coins from the box. Maybe I really should go through my stash
