Many of us here are veterans of numerous harrowing WWII B17 missions.

Rain Man ran the game. I think it was an old Avlon Hill game where you rolled dice to find out what happens at each stage of the mission. We all signed up for the game and Rain Man assigned us to squads and planes would roll the dice and transcribe the results of the missions in the thread. Then we would write letters out of our imaginations to add a little realism to the whole thing. It was a fun off season diversion until Rain Man abandoned us about halfway through the war. Some guys have been stuck in POW camps all this time. :shake:

Hahahaha! Thats funny. But I can see where you are disappointed. Game looks like a lot of fun.

Great imaginations to. I thought for sure they were from old WWII diaries.
Well done :clap:

I think it was a B17 bomber simulation only. Rain Man might chime in. There are simulation war games for almost anything though.

Oh, rats. I need to get back on that.

Yeah, it was only B-17s. Pretty fun. At some point I want to start it up again, but this time I might run a bunch of missions ahead of time to keep work from interfering.

I got to read a copy of my grandfather's flight logs and journal during the war. Very chilling and revealing.

All bark, but little bite.


The Zero and Me-109's were a LOT better aircraft.

My great uncle was a tailgunner in a B-24. He went down with the airplane.


I can't get over how fat "The Jug" looks. They were some big, heavy fighters.

Yes/It was under powered & out dated by 1940. Still a good looking aircraft. I love the shark nose.
Spitfire was another sexy aircraft.
My two favorites would be the P-38s & the British Mosquito. ME 262 also with its two jet engines & shark shaped fuselage. All 3 are eye candy IMO

I have always liked the P-40 with it's huge radiator intake on the front.

The 262 is absolutely gorgeous. Near perfect beauty.

Ho-229 is amazing, too.
