  1. Bf 109E blue air intake cover?

    Jack, your knowledge of early color camera film is definitely better than mine: What I know could be printed in very large letters on a very small pinhead. I have seen some of those photos over the years very much as you described with the splotchy colors. However, the blue in the photos linked by Fin are very well defined, not blobby or a splotch. So, are most likely that blue color. It is intriguing, though. The why will stay a bit of a mystery for awhile. I have learned in the last several months of logging on this site that much of what we knew about Luftwaffe(and other AF, and, Naval AF) colors was wrong; or, very incomplete. Joe
  2. Bf 109E blue air intake cover?

    I have to agree with Stew about the color being RLM 24 Dunkleblau, and why. The reason(s) for it being blue; well, that is a bit of a mystery. I'd just go with Stew's suggestion and not worry about it. Joe
  3. Airfix 1/72 P-51D Mustang U/C Legs...Are they all wonky?

    I just checked my P-51 Mustang and found it had the same u/c leg problem. Well, at least I now have a solution at hand. My Do 17Z-2, OTOH, fuselage halves look fine(but, they are still in the bag, so....). Either way, I have to thank you Garry for the tips. Joe Edit: Garry, I just re-checked my Airfix P-51(the red-tailed boxing of the Tuskegee Airmen); my part 19 antenna looks like: an antenna. There is a blob of flash attached to it; but, the mast is otherwise fine. But, Yikes! the control column is a very delicate part. A lot of planning on my part will be called for in its removal. Thanks again.

  15. cockpit colour

    Thanks, Andre, for finding that; I had suspected this was the correct color; but, Linden Hills has changed their website. They originally had a list of all the paints by the number, with an explanation of its usage(upper surface, under surfaced, cockpit, etc.). Now one has to click on the photo/description to get the info. That takes a lot longer. And, I clicked on a lot of what I had thought might be the correct paint. Joe
