    is that by any chance the Monogram kit? I have one release of this kit and it has those markings.

  10. Airfix 1/48 P-40 landing light question

    yeah , I don't know how any model kit manufacturer can miss it ???
  11. DF loops on CBI Mustangs; suggestions (1/48)?

    for my models of "Carol's Daddy" and "Mrs. Virginia" I am planning on stealing them from P-40 kits. looks like the angle of the spine might be close enough. but, I haven't actually done it yet so I can't guarantee it will work
  12. Tamiya paints for B-17G

    tell me about it ! I much prefer the original (1981?) British miniseries for HHGTTG instead of the new movie version ; the movie deviated too much from the book series.
  13. Models from the Past

    nice job on those kits. and Thank You for building these for veterans , that is a very nice touch
  14. Confused About Yellow Leading Edge Stripes

    thank you for that link , JWM ! there are some good photos there, one I would like to colorize.
  15. one other thing the others might not be considering... if viewing this on a modern HD computer monitor it's capable of a degree of brightness that was impossible in the 1940's filters were used in the 40's - they were for anti-glare purposes and were available in red or green if you really want to start a war start a new topic "Interpreting Soviet WWII colors from black-and-white photos" that will surely light a raging bonfire
