Based on the novel "Piece of Cake" it follows a Spitfire squadron from the beginning of the war to the Battle of Britain. Generally very well regarded, it did attract some criticism at the time for showing the not always heroic reality of "The Few." I recall the author of the novel, Derek Robinson, responding that he based most of the incidents in book on things that actually happened, though not all in one squadron of course.

Wonderful series,almost finished with the pilot episode.Wonderful to see some Spitfires in action.Channel also has BBC's Wings which deals with the early years of the RFC in WWI.Highly recommended all shows round.
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
