KitMaker Network is happy to announce that a new site has joined the network. Thanks to the efforts of Nigel Julian (lampie) this new site will be a place for members to discuss anything related to the P-47 Thunderbolt. The new site, dubbed "P-47 Heaven", is a S.I.G. (special interest group), so if you are interested in the P-47 please join in the discussions and events on the site. One such event is a new group build campaign specifically on the Thunderbolt. For more information on that please check out the Campaigns link. And make sure to look in this sites P-47 forums, which are unique to this site (but do appear in the networks latest posts page area).

For more information about this site, or to offer content or ideas for it's further development, please contact Nigel (lampie).

The site can be found here:

Well done Nige, I remember you telling me about the SIG, and I've been secretly following your hard work! Good job! I never imagined a new site would result though!

I'd like to begin something similar someday, perhaps dedicated to Pacific war modelling? What are your recommended procedures for starting a SIG?

looks like I have a new home

It's been hard keeping this secret as Nige discussed the idea of a site a long while back.

It's great to see what started out as a joke comment by me has become one mans dream and has come into fruition the way it has.

Here's to many more years and hopefully an officially recognised IPMS club in the future
