Re: Cheap aircraft bases using Tile Spacers (1:600 Planes)

Re: Cheap aircraft bases using Tile Spacers (1:600 Planes)

The reason for using Tumbling Dice Planes, is that they do all the planes we need. With each plane representing a fighter flight.

The idea of doing larger planes was for visual effects. Kind of a pilots eye view of at high altitude.

Re: scenario: HMAS Sydney vs HSK Komoran

The Australians are the ones (http://www.defence.gov.au/sydneyii/DSTO ... 001_LR.pdf) that helped David Mearn's with all the faking. Even the Sonar Image has been turned 180%. form the proper image.

Cheap aircraft bases using Tile Spacers (1:600 Planes)

I am using Hallmark miniature 1:6000 scale with 1:600 scale planes from tumbling dice. To give a birds eye view from the aircraft each model will represent a flight of aircraft.

Data cards

It would be good to have an official set of Ship data cards. To download then we can print off as many copies as required for each ship. Or as a Pdf file for each fleet. Even if you put a charge on this of a few Bucks per fleet I don't think people would moan. All we'd have to do is print & laminate...

Please feel free to look at the data given on the Australia's titanic website. But I must stress it's an on ...
