    Not sure if any one thought about it but I do have a suggestion for a model that some may not think of and are looking for something different. I will help with the research if some one wants to try it but dont forget about the Bf-109T.

    Just a suggestion though maybe a stupid one :)

    It would be an interesting build at that.
    I wonder how accurate the Academy Bf-109T-2 is in 1/48th scale?

    That's the one '109 I have never done. Even did a "Zwilling" once.
    Academy is usually bang on, and from what I've heard that one is no exception.

    Not a stupid idea at all Paul!
    That is one of the options our very own Wojtek has been considering!

    Just had a thought about carriers ... who'd want to fly from an airfield which isn't where you left it when you want to return?
    And if it is where you left it, the runway keeps moving away from you as you attempt to land !!

    You just hit it on the head Terry, a carrier pilot has to find, land and take off from a moving base. Thats why carrier pilots are considered some of the best pilots on the world.
