    new to me Hurricane pic, IIC, HV51?, 73 Sq

    I've the online version of the Med Air War Vol 2, so can say there is nothing more to add that has not already been presented here, other than the spelling of pilot's name was either Davies or Davis. regards, Jack

    Spitfire Mk.II-Merlin XII Engine - Help?

    I say buyer beware with Engine & Things. Of the four 72nd scale engines I ordered one time, two were excellent, one was useless, and the other was usable only with a lot of correcting and cleaning up. The original owner passed away a few years ago, and a family member is looking over the business. The bad quality I received is likely the result of old and plugged up molds. regards, Jack

    Friul Tracks

    Is there a reason the ones I linked three weeks ago are still not considered correct? Hannants have them in stock, just that they added an extra zero to the product code: https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/ATL-006 regards, Jack

    All the Hurricane questions you want to ask here

    CC, looks like you are all set to go markings wise. Am curious though how a V coded aircraft ended up in red section - maybe it was a reserve frame? Looking at a diary entry for that day, section was made up of four aircraft : ...taken from page 12 sample from here ; http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/D7492511 regards, Jack

    Agreed, and according to Aces High, L2012 was still flying in September as Cooper Slipper used it to ram a Dornier on the 15th of that month. He bailed out afterwards, so goes without saying, air frame was a write off. regards, Jack

    About the individual aircraft code for P/O Tom Cooper Slipper, seems he mainly was assigned to Red section. Though one diary entry has him flying Yellow 2, earlier entries from June 1940 have him in Red section, and specifically Red 3 on Sept. 4th - so possibly fuselage code C, but not 100% certainty. http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/D7492508 http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/D7492676 regards, Jack

    Trainers GB (finally legal!)

    I think the stinky running shoes are those used for sports training ... not a bad idea because I think not everyone is building an aircraft? regards, Jack

    A UK based dealer, ScaleLink, might have what you are searching for, but the stencils are made of thin brass sheet: https://www.scalelink.co.uk/acatalog/Stencilit___Pochoirs.html regards, Jack

    Type of stowage bins on this sawn off Daimler AC?

    They look to be metal ammo boxes of the 17pdr variety. regards, Jack

    my mistake, that message is for ordering direct from them ... should have checked their store locations, and they do have two in the UK. Try this one: https://airbrushes.com/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=wilder&x=0&y=0

    Panzerwerfer 42 crew

    The four pocket standard tunic would be available to all crews since this was the uniform issued upon entering basic training. This and the 'panzer wrap' jacket are appropriate. Not sure if this means anything, but most of the Panzerwerfer were organized as Brigades and attached at Korps/Army level. Panzer Divisions could have an organic rocket battery, where it is more likely to have been issued the panzer jacket, and with the SS that could mean even their characteristic camouflage is possible. Assuming post Normandy you mean summertime, the reed green lightweight uniform is a good possibility too. ---------------------------------------------- regards, Jack

    RLM 83 Dunkelblau ?

    There is Dunkelblau numbered as RLM 24, so either a mistake in the print or, the author is suggesting a mix between 24 and 83 resulting in RLM 83 Dunkelblau? Some digital samples here: http://penelope.uchicago.edu/~grout/Encyclopaedia_romana/luftwaffe/colors.html Another digital chart here gives a v.2 of RLM 83 as being an olive grey. It looks very dark (pretty much black to my eye): https://www.gyges.dk/Digital Luftwaffe WW2 colours.pdf even lightening it by 25% looks quite dark: regards, Jack
