Alternative markings for WNW Gotha G.IV in preparation
Posted 21 January 2011 - 10:48 PM
Any updates Rowan? I'm not super keen on any of the kit markings at this point, so looking forward to what you come up with!
So far we have the other two red-painted "lead" Gothas from the England raids ("MS/SM" and "K"), a further LVG-built one, Thomas Genth's Grandfather's "RG" and a surprise or two..... Work is continuing and I should be able to make a more specific announcement in a week or so. The possibility of SSW-built hexagon schemes may be there, if I can make it work in terms of costs - it would be an awful lot of decals........!

Now if I could just convince you do to markings Christiansen's W.29 (I think it might need new lozenge as well as the kit gives you the brown lozenge instead of the blue and I think his had the blue(?)), I would be really happy

I know you get asked this all the time, but is there any chance of these in 1/72nd?
Oh I'll get them in 1/32nd but a Gotha in this scale isn't really practical in a two bedroom in Manhattan.
All the very best.
Well I don't see why not - provided that there's enough interest. As Roden cover more than just the G.IV, there would be scope for a wider selection to include the G.V as well. I'll need to grab the Roden kit to see how the shapes are first.
