  1. Sounds like a good subject for a group build.

  2. Happy anniversary! I’ve got an Airfix 1/48 Tiger Moth that I’m going to start next week. I’m going to put it in the De Havilland GB and it’s going to be an RAAF example from the 1941-42 period.

  3. Happy Anniversary RAAF!

    How about showing us a few of your builds to commemorate it Allan? iModellers?

  4. Thanks Paul, here's a couple, but just go to RAAF in A-Z !

  5. Happy Anniversary RAAF!
    And if you decide to GB it, count me in, my friend @kalamazoo!

    Happy Anniversary RAAF !

    I have a 1/48 scale Boomerang made by LTD that I could build for your group, should you decide to start it. I could also find some decals for other Australian aircraft.

    Also FYI, I plan on unleashing the "Luftwaffe" group build on May 1st. It will be the anniversary date of the founding of the Imperial German Air Force. It happened 111 years ago, on May 1st, 1910. This way we can build up our stash of ww1 / Great War aircraft as well as the current modern day aircraft they currently fly.

  7. Happy Anniversary RAAF from me also, Allan (@kalamazoo). I did some flying in Australia when I flew C-141s, and I always had a good time when I visited RAAF bases.

  8. Some of my RAAF builds...
