yeah i make movires for me and my friends of stuff we do.

but this project of the air war is something i want to enter into a major short film festival we have in australia!!!!

the plot goes something like this....

there is a local fly in at a airshow,each plane does a little display etc in the morning.at lunch time there is meant to be a secial fly past of a GWS F15!!!!
when the guy in the control tower looks at his screen he see's a big blimp etc.
unknown to the air show its a force of enemy planes.

they come in and blow up 14 old used air frames i have that will be made to look real etc.

they left and the good guys get there stuff together and head for a hunt.

when they get there a air battle is on etc and then they shown the enemy how destroying a base should be done

the good guys will be flying a me262,bf109,fw190,p40,p38 and a f15...all GWS!!!!
the enemy will have a high wing trainer me and my mates used to learn on.
i have have 45 rockets and a heap of bungers to let off!!!!!! i have built hangers,a control tower and many things that are around a air field etc.

this will all be made on a large farm air strip..so all will be very SAFE.

this is one of the main reason i need pilots in each plane so i can paint each one
to look differnet and be a different charactor in my movie

the movie will be filmed in full HD video

Hi Mark,

It'd be a wonderful video. You're a great film director/maker.

The Pacific theater roundels must be easy to paint on, finished up doing this on the C47 invasion stripes.

Anyone brave enough to take a knife to this kit and try and make a X plane out of it?

I for one will not be doing the AVG scheme, I think my Pop's would understand.

Hello Ray,

We earlybird members have typically been getting out EB emails from May 1 or 2 days after the announcement by you here on RCG of a new kit. So far I don't think any email has gone out for the GWS-40. When can we expect those? I would rather reply to a GWS initiated email so that May does not get confused.

Thanks.

Pat

Painting an invasion stripe, with its straight edges, is easy. When it comes to painting two perfectly round circles, with exactly the same centers, the degree of difficulty goes up greatly. For a set of Australian makings this must be done six times. Add to this the large letters on the side of the Australian P-40s and it becomes apparent that a set of decals would be much appreciated.

My modeling skills are now up to this job of making such markings but a lot of my fellow Australian modelers will not have my experience and facilities.

I agree that by waiting for May to initiate the Early Bird process, we will make her job much easer and this will be to our benefit.

For those not as skilled as Ken you might want to purchase a circle cutter from the craft store.

Cuting the circles is the easy part, finding the correct colour blue adhesive film, as well as the white adhesive film or good masking material that cuts cleanly, to give a sharp edge, is the big problem.

So your experience and facilities would be well served to reveal to your Australian squadron mates as where to find such supplies.
