  1. Hawker Typhoon Pulverizer II- markings query

    is that by any chance the Monogram kit? I have one release of this kit and it has those markings.
  2. Raf type a cammo 1/48 plan view template

    Thank You SimonT ! you found what I was looking for. @ Lawzer I have used these on a couple of Spitfires (MK Vb,VIII,IX) with good results. (sorry no photos currently available)
  3. Raf type a cammo 1/48 plan view template

    I do know of one in .PDF format but cannot seem to find it on my computer or the link on the net.
  4. Airfix 1/48 P-40 landing light question

    yeah , I don't know how any model kit manufacturer can miss it ???
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. Models from the Past

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

    thank you for that link , JWM ! there are some good photos there, one I would like to colorize.
  9. 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
  10. 112 Squadron Tomahawk film footage

    nice vid , thanks for the tip (downloaded that one and part 2 !)
  11. Best 1/48 and 1/72 kits of….

    in the case of the Hellcat ; the Hasegawa (F6F-5) is very nice , but so is the ARII (F6F-3) for the Thunderbolt ...TAMIYA ; miles better than any other kit of the t-bolt. (if you want to do a late model P-47 (D-30,D-35,D-40) you will have to buy the P-47M kit) Lightning ? I agree with Jessica ; Academy or Hasegawa
  12. Does anyone do 1/48 mosquito wing tanks?

    I have 2 copies of Tamiya's PR IV / B IV kit and I am not using the rockets from them. you are welcome to them if you want them. they are what is shown in this photo : https://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/kits/tam/images/tam_mosquitonf13_parts6.jpg
  13. P-400 BW151 in Guadalcanal - Markings Question

    ... you forgot "Impatient Virgin"
  14. Washing kit parts before assembling ?

    if you had one of the early issues of the ICM Yak-9 or Yak-7 it was necessary to get rid of the thick , heavy brown mold release agent the kits were bathed in. paint just didn't stick to it ; sometimes glue didn't either.
  15. Sovietwarplanes forum and site

    I was able to log in (after many attempts to remember my password ) maybe send Massimo an email ? or try registering a new username/password ???
