They're not telling us very much about this yet.

I want to see a demo game video before I take the plunge.

Looking like these could be fun, fairly realistic and playable – something not all air combat rules achieve

Quick look at the Squadron Box here

There are you tube videos.

It looks quite good to me. Should be able to handle a couple of dozen planes a side.

Anybody played it yet? Thoughts?

Got my copy today. However I did not see any Adolph Galland card. Anyone else missing theirs?

The Adolph Galland card is in the German Ace pack not the base set.

I picked up my copy of the base set at Salute, still in shrink wrap though. I'm being disciplined, finish current project then open the box.

German Ace pack? Where is that found? I got the Battle of Britain set.

Looks interesting. Hopefully they will have more aircraft sets soon. The initial selection is pretty limited and the Japanese don't have anyone to fight, really (I suppose they did meet Spitfires and P-51s from time to time, but their more common opponents aren't available yet).
