    Marco already made it clear to Gordon yesterday... he's free to build as many AFV's as he likes as long as he builds 8 aircraft for every one of them lol! lol!

    But I agree with Ray on this one. My new motto is "Build whatever you like as long as you do it well and have fun along the way!"

    ... now I wonder how I can go about building one of those Vulture Squadron aircraft.. with Muttley (the dog) at the controls scratch

    No Alex, I'm not aware that anyone did the kits for them (But skyhigh says that revell used to.) I always thought it would have to be a scratch job.

    As for the drawings, I have most (if not all) of the actual cartoons, so we could have as many stills as we needed in theory jocolor

    Whilst military aviation remains my top choice and love, I also like land and sea subjects along with their history. Airplanes can do a lot of things from destroying bunkers to sinking ships, but you still need ground forces to properly reach the objective of winning a war, ie the man on the ground and his equipment. Sometimes a break from the same subject is needed, so that when break time is over you return to your first choice with renewed energy!! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

    p.s - sorry Gordon for the hijack, must be something viral!! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil lol!
