Title: Spitfire Mk.VIIIs for the Sicily Campaign

Alright, so next week we'll be getting Spitters. These are from the USAAF's 31st FG, specifically the 308th FS. So if you want one I just need an individual code letter, first come first serve on those and I've grabbed M. The only exception to this is for the group commander, so Hogan can have whatever he wants. There are a couple of profiles out there of the group CO's kites with their personal initials for codes. The noses on spitfires are always kinda small so hopefully I can fit your nosearts without shrinking them into total oblivion.

Code letters already spoken for : M, P, O, H, D, Z, J, Q, F, S, A, W, U

Just so you're clear, you can have anything you want as Group Commander, Hogan. Like the Fortress Malta campaign where you had DB-H. The HL code is for the rest of us. But if you want HL-D you can go with that.

As I build my own skins ... I've already used the HL-D code  :)  No worries if Hogan wants to use the same.

  " ...endulum." 
                     ~ _AH_Bear

    It's like a puzzle.   Kopf I believe is offering a solution to Hogan's request for his plane since he left us to wonder with the Huge Long reference.  HL-P      P + endulem.   

     I'm not sure what Hogan was implying since Huge Long Pizza doesn't make sense onaccounta pizzas should be round and I've never heard anyone say 'Wow that's a long pony.' Now that I'm looking at it ponytail would work, but he doesn't seem like a pony kinda guy.  I guess plane could work, too but a spit isn't a huge long plane so that's probably not it. There's so many possibilities we may never know.

Could have been Hella Limp Pendulum.

I'm just glad Hogan did'nt request a yellow spinner for once.

I've updated the first post with all the claimed code letters, including Dave's and Kopf's.

Actually looking back, Shrt requested P or O. I guess since Shrt is flexible Hogan will have P and Shrt O.

It has been said that it helps to understand me to have some kind of psychotropic assistance.

Kopf,

   Must've been the excessive amount of de-oxidizers and  R134 I've been inhaling.  (kooky)

Well, that was yesterday, wasn't it? Sometimes I can't tell from anymore.  Today it's beer and diesel fumes since the fridge is working again and the guy with the trawler berthed next to me insists on running his engine for 20 minutes  a day whether he's going someplace or not.

Yeah, I said peculiar, I am being polite.

Too late.

I guess Shrt was not as flexible as I thought.

This is all your fault, Hogan.   :bomb-034:

You could use a   "O"   for Short.

Just a suggestion.

Yup, just need an individual code letter from youz guyz. Check the bottom of the first post for what letters have already been used. I'll get them done before the next time we fly Spits.

Should be doable, not sure how legible the name will be since it will have to be kinda small on the spitfire nose.

Looks like we are all in spits again next week, so if you missed this thread the first time now is your chance.
