    Ripttide works in waves.... I was just getting a feeling that we'd get some Ripttide units soon

    Yesss, it is here- an in quite wonderful form too: just like the one in my book (exactly the same pattern and same decals) - I am glad RT is still at it ;)

    Ripptide,
    how I have waited for this bomber, and then after a long time no see Ripptide you come back with a baaaang as always.
    Lots of outstanding units, but then everyone have been waiting for this (and dare I say more)

    Whatever it's nice to see your fine units and your presence back....

    I must of course add the issue
    of the D3A Val to complement your fine Kate torpedo model...

    Will it come soon, or like some others I wait for pop up in the SOP package.

    Not sure how fast you'll see one cemo, but it's not one reserved for SOP, just don't have a model nor havn't started building one yet, so can't give a timeline for it sorry

    Hm Wyrmshadow I included a reply to Ripptides old Ki-43 Oscar to debate if that fine aircraft of yours named Val isn't really a Kate.
    It does look more like a Kate in-game, but it's a Val on that picture for sure.
    Never mind it's a matter of opinion and one can use it for whatever, especially a Val.
    But the long quote issues a bit the upgrades needed, and since that time I'm sure some of those aircrafts have been done.

    Just look it over for future thinking on what WW2 aircrafts is missing IMHO.

    I figured out it was a Jill, the replacement for the Kate.

    Wyrmshadow,
    that is surely correct so we then got an upgrade chain

    Dive/torpedo bombers
    Ki-30 Ann already made
    D3A Val alreade made, BUT a question if not this is a B5N Kate
    B5N Kate also made after this quote by Ripptide
    B6N Jill the older Wyrmshadow version registered as the Val
    B7N Grace

    But then if my memory doesn't play tricks I think Ripptide mentioned to make a Jill too. Whatever, then we use that as Grace.

    Many thanks gents for this
    Cemo

    I already have the entire USN carrier airgroup ready, but I'm still on ships.

    Yup, we need some Japanese ships rather than planes (someday) Old Betty though came out perfect :)

    Is their any way to have planes which can only go on land and not in carriers? Because if not it would make it a bit pointless to have separate army and navy planes wouldn't it?
