    Hey, guys,
    Quick question on GB24... I assume this covers the North Africa theatre?

    From the description:

    "Nov 1st– Sunday Mar 1st 2015 - GB 24-Mediterranean Theatre of Operations WWII.
    Including the North African Campaign, the Eastern Mediterranean Operations, the siege of Malta and the Allied landings in Sicily. Good scope for Italian and Vichy aircraft."

    I would throw in Greece and Crete as well.

    If I don't pass this one up as well, I'm tempted to do Oblt. Johannes Geismann of KG77 and his Ju 88A-14.....
    Time will tell...

    May be I can find some of time and make a Greek PZL P-24F or G in 1/72 scale. I still should be having an old vacuform kit somewhere in my stash.

    I don't know if I can locate an example, but Im kinda interested in doing an RAAF Gloster Gauntlet....I would need the decals and the kit, so I might just be kidding myself

    Am alternative might be one of the FAA birds, maybe a Swordfish at Taranto, Sea Hurri, Skua or Albacore

    The description specifically mentions Allied landings in Sicily. Is the rest of campaign in mainland Italy 1943-1945 included or not?

    I'd suspect that this is more or less a Mediterranean GB Part II....or maybe a pre-quel, this being Part I and the first one being Part II....

    Igor, I'd say Italian campaign works. I'd draw the line though at bombers based in England that bombed Italian targets though.

    what about some of the minor campaigns....the iraqi rebellion, occupation of Iran, Turkish DOW 1945, or even Turkey as the major neutral, Levant , and Abysynnia? From the British perspective these all came under the control, at some point of the other, of the ME command....a bloated, overworked beast if ever there was one.

    At the other end of the pond we have the forces based at Gib, the Spanish co-belligerent forces, the Torch invasion, vichy forces in Fr NA
