Operation Bodenplatte (Baseplate) was to be launched on 16 December 1944. Its mission was to cripple Allied air support giving the ground units of Wacht Am Rhein a fighting chance. However, the weather refused to co-operate and the operation wasn’t launched until 1 January 1945.

|The New Flight Stand|
The new flight stand made its début in the Flames Of War Vietnam helicopter box sets. The new design is much improved and is stronger and more stable than the previous version. It can not only be used with just the Huey, but other Flames Of War aircraft too.

|Assembling the Focke-Wulf 190 F8|
|Step 1. Begin assembly by attaching the spinner to the nose of the FW 190.|
|Step 2. Next, attach the 20mm cannons to the FW 190 by gluing them into the notches built into each wing.||Below: Both 20mm cannons in place.|
|Step 3. Time to add the bombs to the underside of each wing.||Below: Examples of the correct location for attaching the bomb to the wing of the FW 190.|

|Assembling The Flight Stand|
|Step 1. Cut the parts of the flight stand off the plastic sprue and clean them up. The best way to cut the parts off the sprue is with a sharp hobby knife or a pair of hobby cutters.|
|Step 2. Attach to stalk to the flight stand base.|
Tip: When assembling the flight stand it is best to use hobby glue especially formulated for plastics. However, Super Glue can be used if you don't have access to specific plastic hobby glue.
|Step 3. Add the magnet cap to the top of the stalk. Casey has done another excellent job working with Evan to create an excellent system of attaching the flight stand to the bottom of the Me 262. |
Note: The cap fits snugly to the top of the stalk, so only use a very small amount of glue to hold the magnet cap in place.
|Step 4. The cap has a recess designed for the supplied magnets. The cap is designed especially to work in conjunction with the recess on the bottom of the Me 262 and the magnets to create a solid connection between the stand and Me 262.|
Note: The cap also a two tabs to match the two slots on the bottom of the Me 262.
