Hi everyone,

For anyone interested in some fun miniature designs for gaming we've recently set up the Plane Shack, which currently has 7 plane designs available as well as optional bases for smoke and fire effects.

We were looking for some light-hearted designs for our gaming rather than sticking to authentic/scale models etc, so after some careful design and testing we produced our own using Shapeways 3D printing service. I'd recommend giving them a try for your own projects!

For use with Canvas Eagles and Blue Max. Really?

Someone has obviously going through a lot of trouble to create these, but, not only would it be tough to see which aircraft are Axis or Allies, which one is a Sopwith Camel or a Fokker D7?

Thanks for the comments!

I agree - the designs aren't based on any real-life planes, so although this means you can create teams using any combination of miniatures they probably aren't suitable for large campaigns as it could be easy to lose track of teams (unless you base them on colours). For our gaming we tend to play smaller games, and we use generic versions of the plane sheets so the type of plane is less important.

Definitely more suited to some play styles more than others - if you're looking for authenticity then there are some amazing scale models available elsewhere, but for anyone after something different they'll hopefully be of interest!
