Hawker Typhoon with mainly bombs ,OK, but same plane with mainly rockets,not

OK, I'm in with a Monogram 1/48 Heinkel He-111. May be just the model, or I may make a diorama out of it, now that Tamiya has the SS-100 German Heavy Tractor available in 1/48 scale (money burning a hole in my pocket)...

I don't know much about WW1 aircraft, the only 2 bombers i can recall, other than the Zeppelins, are the British 0/400 and German Gotha.

I was thinking about that very same question, in my first gut feel I would think that it is a rather grey area as it is an underwater "missle" for lack of a better description.

This would then mean that an air to ground missle or rocket would also count for this GB.....it is a tough one but I would say maybe any weapon that was "propelled" does not come to mind if I were to think of an aircraft dropped bomb.

Unless the majority of the guys think I am wrong with this assesment?

 

Bish had come up with some stunning badges, I will ask him to post, you guys will love them I am sure :-)

PS, guys if I dont reply quickly it is just because we are about 8 hours ahead of the US east coast so I might be sleeping LOL

I'm definitely in (like Flynn).

Those badges are great.

I just haven't decided yet, there are a few in mind in the stash in 1/72, an Airfix Whitley or Lanc Mk II, A Hasegawa B-25 or B-26, maybe a Vulcan or Valiant or even a Gloster Javelin. I'll decide later.

Cheers

Tony

I'm just taking it one GB at a time.

Hi Theuns so any plane with Defensive weapons how about Torpedoes ? 

 

 

Theuns

The Kate, Jill, Grace etc are also called attack/torpedo bombers so wouldn't they meet the criteria?

 

The badges are gorgeous so I may get in on this one too either with a 1/72 B-17G or a 1/72 Ju88. Still thinking about which one.
