I have so far prepared alternative markings for five G.IV bombers - information is still coming in, so profiles will be posted and details announced very soon.

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!

Cheers,

Doug

Hello Doug,

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........!

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with Rowan!

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 like the 624/16 decals in the kit then it would have to be the 991/16 version.


I can see another one being bought if some of these alternatives tickle my fancy.

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.

How about some 48th scale decals for the GV? I have red in the Windsock that the decals within the Hippo Models kit are quit wrong.

Cheers, Nico
