I have the rule book for Blue Sky/Red Sun, but I was wondering if there was an online source for all the other aircraft stats some where? I really do not want to buy the other source books for just that aircraft stats. Also, they are near impossible to find (the rule books)

Side questions here : what do the other books offer other than aircraft stats and maybe new scenarios?

By 'other books' to what do you refer ? I've the entire
series, including the Early War (France, Poland, etc)
and the 'paper planes' version.

I don't think John has released anything past that.

Red Star/Blue Sky
White Star/Blue Sky
Blue Sea/ Blue Sky

Just wondering if the aircraft stats for these books are "out there" some where. I don't really want to by these books (hard to find). Just want the stats for the planes in those books.

I read somewhere that there is a Yahoo group for these rules that have stats for some of the aircraft.

Can't find the Yahoo group. Anyone have a link possibly?

NVM…found it

Thanks Joe, but aren't these for an entirely different game?

acctingman1869 did you find the Yahoo group for
John Stanoch's Blue Sky system ?

If not, I can send you a link.

acctingman186902 Nov 2017 11:54 a.m. PST

Yes, I did. Just waiting for approval to join.

Thanks Ed

Yeah, I screwed that up: had Mustangs! on the brain, sorry!

How long does it take for someone to be accepted in a yahoo group?

Joes Shop Supporting Member of TMP03 Nov 2017 4:09 a.m. PST

If it's a Public Group it's instantaneous. If it's moderated than it can vary widely in my experience.

A Group I joined recently: it took 14 days until I was 'approved'.

Yeah I'm trying to join a Yahoo group for 3mm minis and it's taking ages.

Unless I'm totally out to lunch, MSD Games still sells the Blue Skies series:

Perhaps drop them a quick e-mail?

acctingman186905 Nov 2017 10:47 a.m. PST

They do, but I just want the aircraft stats and don't really want to dump $60 USD+ just for that. Was hoping they were available somewhere.

Maybe when the budget allows I'll reconsider.

Canuckinator05 Nov 2017 11:03 a.m. PST

Gotcha. I might still drop them an e-mail, they're quite nice folks to deal with. There is also a stat generator Excel file on their free downloads page if wose came to worse.

acctingman186907 Nov 2017 6:34 a.m. PST

Anyone know who runs the Blue Sky Yahoo group or now how to email them directly?

acctingman186910 Nov 2017 9:36 a.m. PST

The stat generator doesn't really work as I compared the A6M2 Zero using their excel calculator and the stats of it in the Red Sun/Blue Sky rules.
