What are the basic types of planes used? From the message traffic, I think I saw Spit I, Bf109E, I assume a Hurricane. Is a Stuka allowed or an He-111? I might try to do something very basic OOB.

Was thinking about this myself, great minds think alike :-) For the time being you can post in progress pics in your campaign folder. If you want to reach a wider audiance then the RRB. I will probably do both as one of the aims of the campaign is to drum up interest in aircraft modelling.
I will send an email to Jim to clarify the situation and to sort out what to do about voting at the end. Bare with me though as my time is limited, now that I am back in work :-)
