Bag the Hun Operation Bodenplatte [29]




Today was all mucked up for various reasons so I didn't get to go to the NWS show in Gosport or the RN submarine museum, even though this was 'booked in advance' with the Ministry of the Interior. However, I did find some time to finish off half the P51D's with decals and a final topcoat of gloss varnish to bring back the shine to the bare metal.

They're not great but better than I thought they'd be, half way in. Anyway, I'd be eternally grateful if someone could remind me never to try bare metal ever again, at least not this way round. In theory, they should look something akin to this, only with an olive drab anti-dazzle strip:

Not to be put off, I'll get the FW190A8's done this evening and the rest of the P51's tomorrow night, ready for the game on Tuesday.

  1. Hi Jim. I'm Khairul from Malaysia. Have been thinking of getting into BTH but just never seemed to. If you've played it would appreciate your comments on the game.
    Thanks in advance.

  2. Hi Khairul,

    It's a great system, especially for games with multiple players.

    It's fast, unpredictable and pretty realistic in the way it models formation flying, tactics etc.

    Why not give it a try?

    Cheers

    Jim
