I’m trying to get a forgotten wars group build going over on Armorama. I imagine aeroscale folks see that in the thread feed too, but I thought I’d call attention to it if not. Airplanes will be welcomed too. It’s for wars during the Cold Wars but without US or Soviet participation - so wars other than Korea, Vietnam, or Afghanistan I guess…
Sounds interesting. I’ve been planning on an Omani Strikemaster for years that I just never seem to get going.

Cool. I’ve wanted to build one since reading the book Storm Front by Rowland White, a very readable history of the Dhofar War. I highly recommend it.
I think one of my favourite accounts in the book was the press ganging of Shorts Skyvans into the role of bombers. Armed with home-made napalm filled oil drums, which were simply rolled out the cargo ramp when overflying their target area. Must have been a bit hairy while being shot back at by the guerrillas!
Super nice topic. I will go and sign up. Maybe something from the Middle East wars or Yugoslavia.
Phil, I remember reading about this campaign proposal somewhere on Armorama and I would participate with a french F4U-7 Corsair during the Algerian War for Independence (1954-1962). It’s the Hasegawa kit in the Revell box from a few years ago. Just let me know what time frame you’re thinking of for this campaign.
Consider yourself signed up! We’re starting on Mar 1. The build thread will be on Armorama here: Forgotten Wars Group Build, but planes are of course very welcome. It sounds like a great subject. I really need to build a corsair soon.
