Ok, that's great, but the US aircraft are a bit sparse, and I doubt there'll be an Aces P-67 or P-59.

Chuck Yeager is an "ace"...in many ways!!
He must have flown one of those planes!

My point is...it could be a Pilot you are commemorating
and the plane modeled may just be an aircraft that he flew at some point in his career.
Does it have to be the aircraft he became an "ace" in?

if the series is specifically about "Combat Aces"...then it only applies to "kill/mission" numbers
and should also only apply to the aircraft that they became an "ace" in.

so, whats the answer?

it can be any plane they flew so long as it was in combat and they scored a kill. its still part of their heritage of being an ace and is historically significant. Only allowing the plane he scored his 5ht kill in would be entirely too limiting and difficult to prove.

Ryan - you inadvertantly touch on another part of this series - developing new 1:33 models that the aces flew if they arent already available - hence focusing on the ones we already have!

ok - wow....

I was going through the shop looking for planes in the shop at 1:33 and comparing to those on the aces list.... Ryan certainly hit the nail on the head.... its pretty damn sparse all around :(

I am gonna have to start greasing some palms to get this moving a little better. There are of course several that can be done but its not a huge amount.

I am going to put together a list of models I would like to see done in 1:33 for this project and mail it out to the designers to see what we can do.
