Hello all!

I completely failed to update my blog over the festive period, although, working in retail management, I do have the excuse that this is an insanely busy time for me.


Still, here's the last instalment for my Battle of Britain project, including a couple of battle reports that prove the skies over England in 1940 were the domain of the Jagdwaffe!

Brilliant!, I enjoy Angels 20 very much albeit with a number of house rules.

Very worthy of each cross-post.
Pictures are nice "aviation art".

Lovely! How did you do the smoke? Where did you find the JU-88's?

Hi Nick, The smoke is stuffing fibre, the kind you can buy from craft or haberdashery stores for re-stuffing mattresses or pillows. It's more resilient than cotton wool, and, when teased out, does a nice job of holding its shape.

A piece of florist's wire, with a bend at one end to hold onto the leading edge of a wing, keeps the fibre from drooping down. Spraypaints provide the colours.

The 88's are from the Postage Stamp range. I found them in a model railway shop, going for a song. :)
