I’m all for having the C-47 and C-46. My Grandpa was a mechanic in India so the planes have some sentimental bias for me. It also may give us heavy and light transports to have both. I would really like a B-29 and gliders. ––I have always favored the idea of heavy(C-46) & light(C-47) transports. I would be tremendously happy if we ever were fortunate in having some C-54 4-Engine Transports one day,…OR even a 4-Engine seaplane transport. WOW!
----BTW, I’ve already received the B-29’s and Gliders and can testify to their high detail.
LOL now I just have to figure out how to pay for all the units I’m going to buy. ––Yep,…This is a reality of life.
TP and others,
I have looked at Coach’s stuff on shapeways.com and it is great. However with my budget the time, labor, and materials to paint them up for my personal taste is out of my budget. I do paint, but that is expensive and I have worn out and used much of the materials I have to paint with. I’m a “mixed” customizer. I like some units painted in detail and I’m still working on much of my collection. I’m also a big fan of collecting solid colored sculpts in different colors and love the beauty and versatility of un-painted, semi-stock pieces for my collection.
All topics aside, I’m a bit of an “odd duck” when it comes to A&A. I would like to see a good selection of transport vehicles for my collection. The more the better.
So for anyone who’s played E&W, what did you like about the game?
For me, what it comes down to is managing equipment. Like, it’s very much an IPM-style game, so keeping your tanks and aircraft safe while at the same time exerting force as effectively as possible, is the whole puzzle of E&W. The early attacks made by the Soviets are usually about reducing the number of front lines they have to fight on, but also destroying NATO’s equipment (particularly transports, but also armor and fighters.)
