Winter Aircraft Project - The Flypast!

Here they all are then, by popular demand.  The 1/72 version of Luftflotte von Gow in all it's dubious glory.

Airfix Avro Anson I
Airfiv Avro Lancaster
Airfix Bristol Blenheim IVF in Portuguese colours.
Airfix Westland Lysander
Airfix Hawker Hurricane IID
Airfix DH Mosquito
Airfix Supermarine Spitfire IX
Airfix Focke-Wulf FW-190D
Airfix Messerschmitt Bf-109G
FROG Supermarine Spitfire XIV.  Not strictly part of the WAP but near enough.
FROG V-1 Flying Bomb.  Ditto.
And finally - this Morane MS-406 pictured here with it's contemporaries is a pre-finished model which arrived from Don M while the project was underway.

Nice collection Tim, makes for good options gaming too

Nick Grant said...

Outstanding output! That's a very impressive lineup Tim.

Archduke Piccolo said...

Quite an airforce you have there! I particularly loked the camo on that French thing. It strikes me that the French had a colourful way with camo on vehicles as well as aircraft...
Cheers,
Ion

Ah yes, a game. I really must sort that out...

Tim Gow said...

It's been a hugely enjoyable project. Now for some games....

Tim Gow said...

Archduke Piccolo
I'm sure you're not implying any style over substance....

Don M said...

A very nice air group there!

Arthur said...

Nice one, Tim, but, sadly not a single bi-plane, which I know are rather fiddly etc.

Just mentioning...

Regards
Arthur

Don M
And more coming soon!

Tim Gow said...

Arthur
No bloody pleasing some people! I'll see what I can do....

An impressive result!

I'm looking forward to seeing how you fit them all into one game.

Crikey they do add up Tim! Spendid effort on this.

Stephen Beat said...

Very impressive display! :)

I'm not sure even I can get them all in a sing,e game!

Tim Gow said...

Pete
Thanks - very kind of you.

Tim Gow said...

Paul
They certainly take up a lot more space than 1/144.....

Hmm, bombing raid on a Doodlebug launcher? Would require a large licence to explain the variety of planes I suppose.

Tim Gow said...

Ross Mac
It isn't the size of the licence which matters, its how you use it...
