1/300 Aircraft Games
Another area I have been broadening my interest has been in the area of 1/300/285 WW2 planes. I have had the Actung Spitfire, Buffalo Wings and Whistling Death games from Fighting Wings for a while and played them a bit. Its hard playing solo. With DP9 (Heavy Gear's company) starting shut down lines of different games (Jovian Chronicles and Gearkrieg) I decided to buy up a bunch before they became impossible to find. Luftkrieg the air game for Gearkrieg was intriguing. Being a fan of the old video games where you could fly the German jet fighters of WW2, I was very interested in the neat cross-over storyline. In the search for miniatures I stumbled across MSD's Luftwaffe 1946. Combining these and buying some other minis from other lines and on ebay I have assembled quite the air flotilla for each of the major powers. In order to prep them I have drilled and placed magnets into many of them and then primed them white for painting at a date ...TBD. Anyways, with really cool telescoping magnet flight stands from Corsec I am looking forward to some great dog-fights in the future....also TBD....hopefully before I die.
