Michael stated that he was thinking up more campaigns. So here is one, all bent wing (gull or reverse gull wing) aircraft.

Hmm, I've only got 5 Corsairs in the stash. I guess that's enough to use one for this.

Hello Mark.

So that everyone does not think that this is not just a Corsair campaign. I borrowed this from Wikipedia re: gull winged aircraft.

The below is a pretty extensive list of aircraft that fit the description.

Category:Gull-wing aircraft
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Aircraft with a gull wing configuration, i.e. with the inboard section at a dihedral (upward) angle relative to the fuselage and the outboard section at an anhedral angle. Seen from the front, the gull wing resembles an elongated 'M'-shape.
Note: Aircraft with an inverted gull wing configuration should be placed in the appropriate category.

Category:Inverted gull-wing aircraft
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Inverted gull wing aircraft have a wing configuration in which the inboard wing section (i.e. adjoining the fuselage) is set at an anhedral angle, i.e. the outer end is lower than the wing root, while the outboard section is set at a dihedral angle with the outer end (usually the wingtip) higher than the inner end. Seen from the front, this wing configuration has an elongated 'W'-shape.

Bob, thanks for the list. It ups my possibilities by 2. PBM and B-25. I don't have room to display either. I'll stick with the Corsairs.

Yes Bob,
thank You very much for the list. I never realized the Gannet is a gull wing bird. Would be a nice chance to build the Revell kit of this plane. So I am interested. What about the time schedule. I feel there are many interesting campaigns proposed.

I was thinking of the same time frame as the Schwalbe II campaign. 1 March 2020 through 1 September, 2020.

I thought that I would post a few more photos of aircraft with gull and inverted gull wings. Just a few to stir interest as Jonathan posted.

Grumman F6F has a slight inverted gull wing, enough to notice. Is it enough to count?

Here is a 3 view of the F6F,does the wing drop from the fuselage to the folding mech? If so then OK! the F6F is in.

Russ and Johnathan I have been looking at the (2) three views and it could go either way.

The F6F and the Fiat G50 are not on the list, but if you can get the others to sway me with those 3 views Ill say yes.

Dropped by my local thrift store and picked up an old Revell 1/48 F4U-4. Not sure I want to use this or the Fujimi 1/72 F4U-5N.

Russ and Jonathan, lets go with the "benefit of the doubt" rule.

The F6F and the Fiat G50 are IN.

OOPS! I made a mistake and have corrected the count. Mark, thanks for keeping me honest. I don't think that I could build (2).

Another border case:



What do you think, does He 219 count? If it does, then I'm in.

Hello, Pasi. It looks like the owl fits the bill so welcome aboard. It could be entered in either this or the Radial campaign.

or the twin tails campaign, for that matter.
