This idea has been floating around for a while, there has been several new releases in recent times for night fighters (Revell 262 and Fw 190, Heinkel 219 etc) and the AIMS Bf 110G-4 conversion, I think there's enough kits to run this, but it is a little more confined than the usual GB topic.

 

Excluding conversion sets, I've put together a list of easy night fighter kits to find. I'd also be willing to expand a little more to include strike aircraft that specifically operated at night, such as the F-117, Heinkel 111's and Mosquito's with black under surfaces and NJG Ju 87D's, if someone want's to build one of those.

I'd like at least 12 participants, so can I ask that if you respond in the affirmative, that you be 100% sure you will participate and mention what kit you will build. I'll leave this up for a couple of weeks and if this doesn't get enough interest, then I have a few other ideas in the bank.

There are also the Hasegawa F6F-5E and F6F-5N kits. Like some of the other Hasegawa kits on the list, they are specific boxings that may be somewhat hard to find if you don’t already have it.

Yes, oh yes! I'd be in for either a Bf110G-4 (the AIMS conversion of course) and/or the Tamiya Mosquito finished as a Mk II NF. Can we have something like a 6 month build window please Brad?

I've been thinking about doing a Ju 88C-2 or the old Revell 110G-4 or maybe even a 109G-6 from JG 300.  I'm not real good at building on timelines so at this point I'm a definite maybe.
