I've published my "Merlins Over Malta" map (or "Messerschmitts Over Malta" if you prefer), which is available in my gallery for download (the largest size can be printed, I believe, on banner material much like Dave's BoB map).



Tip o' the hat to Dave for supplying the inspiration and the grid artwork!

I haven't printed mine yet, but am planning to in the next month, once my collection of Bf109s and Spits is complete and converted to Med theater livery.

Dan, it's a terriffic mat, and thank you making this available to us all!

I'll be giving your mat a whirl next week at one of our monthly game days, so hope to have some pics of Malta in Action then.

Again, thanks for providing this to the community!

Oh sure, nice map, thanks for nothing. There goes another $50 to Colormax for this one. cry

Seriously though, nice map and I'll probably get another one like the Dover map, exterior 13 oz. finish which I was really happy with and saves serious $$$. Tip given.

Cheers.

We tore up the skies over Malta today!



The mission involved four Macchi C.200s vs. four Hurricanes which were climbing to intercept the Italians over Malta's Grand Harbor.



After the last shots in anger subsided in this three hour long struggle, each side limped homeward having lost two of their comrades each in the action.



Dan's custom made Malta mat set the scene for the struggle, which turned out to be amazingly tight dispite early indications that the Italians seemed to be outclassed.

Walt, I've gone for 5 inch hexes, so it measures 90 inches X 57.35 inches (7.5 X 4.78 feet).

I did just a little tweaking of the mat before I sent it off to the printers (for example eliminated the partial hex lines on the border), so the dimensions may vary from Dan's original dimensions a bit.

Thank. I'll probably go with another 48x72 like I did with Dover, so the hex size will get reduced propotionately. I can live the with slightly smaller hexes though.

His map is in the very first posting of this thread above. Just open it up to the highest resolution, then save it as a Jpeg and use it when you send off to the company to get it printed.
