    After being a browser for some time I thought I'd finally sign up.

    My interests are most areas of WW2 aviation, but I've become more interested in the campaigns in SE Asia / Burma / India recently.

    Because of that I have a soft spot for aircraft that often get relegated to the "second division" e.g. Buffalo, Mohawk, Beaufighter etc :)

    Cheers.

    Welcome! I'm a fan of the lesser known types as well, particulary the Vengeance:cool:

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Ahh, the Vengeance - another under-rated aircraft that did excellent service in Burma. I'm awaiting the delivery of "The Flying Camels - History of 45 Squadron". Should be a good read.

    Welcome. I am a big fan of the Beaufighter as well. I have been looking for a Beaufighter t-shirt for a long time. There are only 4 known examples left, so it looks like the only way I will get a t-shirt is to take a picture of a Beau and make one myself.

    Cheers guys.

    I like t-shirt idea. I'd go for ground attack, with guns blazing and all rockets flying:D
