    Hi all. I recently revived an old hobby that I had when I was a kid. I am avidly collecting and assembling WWII 1/48 scale aircraft. To date, I have completed a B-17F, A6M Zero and a Spitfire MkII. I am in the process of painting my Lancaster BI/BIII. I have 12 other models waiting in the wings (pun intended) ranging from German, British, Japanese and Russian aircraft.

    My question is this, I believe this site used to have a great list of different aircraft used in WWII. I can't seem to find it and would like to know where I can go to get a comprehensive list.

    Thanks for taking the time to view my post.

    The site is still undergoing some renovation. It's being worked on.

    Patience. ;)

    Mrbillk- have fun with the re-discovered hobby. I can't muster the close up vision anymore even with magnifying reading glasses to build them again myself. One thing for sure- there are zillions of kits these days so you won;t run out of planes to build.
