  1. both the Aero Legends and the Biggin Hill machines overhead today .. on several occasions
  2. ..not sure whether that makes it a good day or a bad day? On the other hand there was loads of real Spitfire action overhead just to the east of you all day long!
  3. A Pair of Emil's +COMPLETED+!!!

    two Emils came out a treat, love the 'plaque'!
  4. Agreed. And me too. Humbrol 98 is a 'chocolate' brown that would appear to be closer. There are some decent period colour images in Lionel Persyn's book(s), the original huge LeLa Presse volume and the Mushroom title. I don't know if this has come up before but the 'C1' is not a variant, it indicates 'C' for 'chasseur' or fighter
  5. lovely finish on this one Max! nicely 'anodised'!

    You may well be correct - the German-language history of III./JG 3 has Kienitz giving up command of the Gruppe and leaving front-line service for "health reasons" at the end of August. Between 21 July and 8 August the three Staffeln were back in Germany and the unit did not operate over the UK until 12 August. His replacement Wilhelm Balthasar was the leading ace of the French campaign (23 vics) and the second to receive the Ritterkreuz.
  7. nowadays most enthusiasts don't see further than the jets, but it is worth making the point that for every jet in service by March/April 1945, the Luftwaffe was deploying antiquated biplanes or obsolescent ab initio type trainers in numbers in combat. These flew primarily in the night ground attack Nachtschlacht or 'tank-hunting' Panzerknacker roles. With training schools closed and no fuel these types did not demand much in the way of piloting skills or require much gasolene. It was even planned to re-equip the III. Gruppe of the 'famed' Junkers Ju 87-equipped Schlachtgeschwader 2 with these machines.
  8. Duxford aircraft "crash landing"

    according to Bedfordshire Police twitter feed, the recovery may have caused some chaos

    join Facebook. Get the app on your phone and Ipad. Upload from your phone directly to your "messenger" on FB. Retrieve it on your ipad via the FB app. Shrink it by simply taking a "screen copy" (press on/off button and the large button at the same time). Goes straight to your 'photos'. There are probably even simpler ways
  10. Fw190D-9, JG2, 1945

    JG 4 machine. Mombeek is the JG 4 authority. Very neat build and finish ..
  11. would you happen to know the UK postage on an Aussie Eight combo box (including 104-page book) Mike please ?
  12. The Cheapskates Guide to Modelling Tools.

    brilliant - especially the 'stand' and the 'parts rack'
  13. Not A Model- Unable to Post Due To Photobucket Changes

    just a quick thought - you can bring up small 'low-res' copies of your PB photos already posted here and then save them by doing a google image search- eg search 'Tony o'Toole Britmodeller' on images and they should all appear...
  14. Hi Max ..long time no speak. Here's a few JG 300 'wilde Sau' G-5/6 scheme options G-5s 'white 1' and 'white 4' with Naxos G-6 'white 7' of 1. Staffel with exhaust stack shroud ( and possibly whistle) Closer view of a JG 300 G-6 exhaust stack flame shroud with Eberspächer acoustic pipe or 'whistle' over the leading ejector. These ‘whistles’ provided an audible alarm signal to alert an airfield and its flak batteries that a wilde Sau night fighter was operating in the vicinity G-6/R6
