    Afficionados are going to buy this
    They're going to notice that you've got the Mk VIII before the Mk IX..

    After that, it'll only be a matter of time, they'll find out where you live...

    the mark VIII is the mark 8 (5+1+1+1) while the mark IX is the mark 9 (10-1)

    My roman numerals dont stretch to XIX i think it must be a 19 (10 plus 10 minus 1)


    what have the romans done for us? screwed up any understanding of numbers for a start

    OK, I have received a better idea and will be implementing it tomorrow...

    In the mean time here's some info:

    Roman numerals:

    I = 1
    V = 5
    X = 10

    Placing the I to the left of V or X subtracts the number, placing it to the right adds the number

    So with V as 5, then IV is 4, and VI is 6 - easy!

    And for Spits - VIII is 8 (five plus three ones) and IX is 9 (ten minus one)

    The mysterious XIX is also easy - 19 (twenty would be XX, but the middle I subtracts from the right X)

    OK, Sweden and Switzerland - roundels attached:

    Clave, wasn't 19 Sqdrn the first to use cannon armed Spt IIs? Might want to use 19 Sqdrn for that and another Sqdrn for the Mk I. Just an idea. :)

    BTW - FANTASTIC!!!!!

    Clave, looks great. Changing the thread title, eh? I do like the image in post #11 most of all, but are you still planning a calendar?

    Yep, I am just deciding on a couple of things, then I will press ahead with a BoB calendar.

    As things stand I want to accurately scale the aircraft against each other, but I'm not 100% decided on this idea, so any feedback would be good. I think think Bomber/Fighter combo looks good, but not to sure about the Fighter/Fighter page...

    Another test page - I'll wait for feedback now I think because I'm still not sure about the scale thing....
