Peter's choices

Spitfire versus Bf109? MiG-15 versus Sabre? Stuka versus T-34? Martians versus humans? Any pair of 1/144-scale items that were pitted against each other in mortal combat are fair game. Get those creative juices flowing ...
Runs from 7 May 2016 to 17 July 2016.

Peter's choices

#1

Post by pbhawkin »

Hi all,
My list of potential subjects are as follows.
Wirraway v zero (Yes there was a Wirraway that shot down a Zero!) AND I have yet to build a Zero too!!,
Sunderland v S-100 Schnellboot (F-toys v de Agostini detailed with PE ),
He51 v I-16 or I-15 (Shapeways He51 v probably a Armory I-16 or maybe a Minairons 1-15),
P-36 (Hawk 75) French v Bf109E (or maybe a Vichy Hawk versus RAAF??), No. 3 Squadron RAAF, which had just converted to the new P-40 Tomahawk I claimed five D.520s destroyed for the loss of one P-40 in air combat. So I would need to do a D.520 instead of a Hawk.
or this:

Peter

Hello Peter,

looks a challenge. I'm sure you will do well. looking forwards to watching everyone's progress

If I can get my primary build out of the way quickly- the il-2 and 109, I will commit to doing the Beau with a 190. :oops:

The TFX versus Fw190A-8 was one of the later Airfix combinations in 1/72. Definitely a good choice.
... Wirraway v Zero (Yes there was a Wirraway that shot down a Zero!) AND I have yet to build a Zero too!
Lots of interesting pairings in your list, but this one I'd most like to see! Never built a Zero? How is this possible? :shock:
OTB ...
GB13 - Late 298 (Aeronavale), Bf109E-3a Strela (Bulgarian AF), ČKD LT vz.38 Praga (Slovakian Army)
