    LITTLE FRIENDS

    Don't know if this help anyone with research info etc but I stumbled across this website several months ago while in the middle of doing research for my project. It's a site dedicated to those who flew in the 8th AF fighter command and has some great info. I dare say loads of you already know of this site but for those who don't well worth a visit. Cheers All Mark

    Thanks for the intrest Mike. Yup its a huge project but its something i've wanted to do for ages. I was ready to start but lost my job in Aug so money is tight hence no spending on kits!! Does give me time to sort out and decorate my hobby room on a shoestring budget and do more research though!! Any info you have or pics i'd be glad of will be asking for more help I dare say in the future!! Cheers Mark

    Don't know if any of you very knowledgeable people out there can help? RAF sqn codes are really easy to find but some of the USAAF ones are proving a real pain any good ref books or websites you can recommend? Trying to find info on the 12th AF 47BG which was at Buy St Edmunds ( Rougham ) for a brief period in Dec 42 with A-20 Havocs but can't find codes and what mark of Havoc.... Cheers Mark

    A very belated Happy New Year to all the guys and girls on here....been a while since of been on just glad to see the back of 2018. 2019 can only be better!! Trying to catch up with so much new stuff on here and the quality of the models still blows my mind!! In the process of a project that I will never probably complete but the research is fun!! I'm going through all the airfields used in the county of Suffolk during WW2 and listing sqn's,aircraft used sqn codes etc and hope to try and start building at least one aircraft from each airfield sqn etc.... We will see Mark
