Blueprint for Victory

I've set up a multiplayer game of Knights of the Sky, the club house rules for WW1 dogfighting, for late January, with about ten players already signed up. This will be set in January 1917, so I'm going to make a couple of Airfix kits for the game to fill some gaps and add to the aircraft I already have. These will include at least one Airfix Sopwith Pup, a Toko Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter and possibly a second Revell Nieuport 17.

My early to mid 1917 allied aircraft

I also have some research to do on the evolution of aerial tactics and methods during the First World War, so have been reading a couple of recently published books on the subject. These include Marked for Death by James Hamilton Paterson and Blueprint for Victory by Greg Baughen, both of which have an interesting angle on the changing nature of air warfare and the development of technology over the course of conflict.
