Bag the Blenheims: Chocks Away!

I've run out of time to finish the target markers for the Bag the Hun scenario tomorrow but, to be honest, they look perfectly useable as they are without the need to paint the individual vehicles. I'm sure that at 3000 feet any camouflaged Afrika Korps truck would just look like a khaki coloured blob anyway! I decided in the end to use 40mm circles rather than hex shaped bases for the ground target markers, as the hex cloth I'm using has larger hexes than my usual Hotz Mat.

I've also filled in all of the aircraft record sheets with the required details, adding coloured dot stickers to the sheets and the corresponding aircraft model bases, so that they can be easily recognised in the heat of combat. There are now seven players taking part, so I've split the bombers into two flights of three to make space for the seventh player. So, last minute oversights not withstanding, I think I'm now ready for 'Chocks Away?'
