Keep in mind it needs to be an aircraft used in training. 

 

Just for my understanding: It has to be an aircraft in which teacher and student flew together? My plan was to build an F/A-18B in adversary markings, here's a little excerpt from Wiki:

 

"The F/A-18A is the single-seat variant and the F/A-18B is the two-seat variant. The space for the two-seat cockpit is provided by a relocation of avionics equipment and a 6% reduction in internal fuel; two-seat Hornets are otherwise fully combat-capable. The B-model is used primarily for training."

 

But in my case, the aircraft I planned wouldn't qualify, even if adversary marked aircraft were indeed used to train fighter pilots, but this specific aircraft wasn't used as a teacher/student trainer in the first place. What's your ruling, I'm a bit confused.

I was struggling with the whole trainer entry.  Nothing excites me in this classification.  Nothing!   Then, I had a bulb go off.  The old Nitto Willow trainer.  Orange and olive drab wavy camo.   Whew!   This will be my first group build as soon as I retire at the end of the year.

Bring it on.

Yeh that's fine, Operational Training Unit aircraft and those used at TopGun are in as it's training as well.

Quite right Dave, 30 years of the Eastern Front 1915 -1945.

It does but we need Kev or Matt to set up the sub forum,  both of which are out of pocket today so its going to be launched a wee bit late

I could be interested in the Training group build, if I can find a Fouga Magister in 1:32. Will appreciate any help in this matter

 

 

I think the DACO one was due out about now.
