  1. Andy: My research showed Seid and McIntosh in HX819. At the time, it was coded. TH-J. The confusion is likely due to the fact that Australian Ace C. Scherf flew it earlier as TH-F. However, HX819 left for 43 Group in May 1944 while coded as TH-F. Upon its return the next month, HX819 re-coded as TH-J. I atribute NS850, THM to Kipp and Huletsky. Know that crews moved between aircraft. For eg, I also show Scherf in NS930. HTH Mark Proulx
  2. I notice a number of aftermarket hobby suppliers taking a similar stance. Mark Proulx
  3. Yes, different markings would be nice, though aftermarket likely to step in. I would hope to see an optional nose perspex representing the more common gun configuration. Mark Proulx
  4. AIMS does a nice 32nd scale conversion. Mark Proulx
  5. I assume you mean "2". Mark Proulx
  6. The 109 photo in post #8 also appears to have a mid-fuselage demarcation point, not the bottom as per post #1. The rear fuselage band also much narrower. Mark Proulx
  7. Probably ensures that a prop strike wouldn't happen as the wheels absorbed the landing. Mark Proulx
  8. Sure would be nice to see ACCURATE 1/48th scale decals for the Trumpeter kit. Mark Proulx
  9. This is a great development for a kit long overdue.... Will it come with clear parts and decals? Is the Mach 2 kit readily available? I will be keeping a close eye on this conversion! Mark Proulx PS... if you need help at all I have lots of Argus material including photos/slides of every one built.
  10. In discussions I have with some 352nd FG "experts", they routinely polished some of their aircraft with shoe polish in the search for speed. That would certainly change the color on the aircraft after application. Mark Proulx
  11. Ummmm.... Eduard is 48th scale. This conversion set is in 32nd scale designed for the Dragon kit. Mark Proulx
  12. FWIW, 418 Sqn RCAF became part of 2nd TAF in November 1944. Mark Proulx
  13. Aviaeology does it in 72nd. Mark Proulx
  14. On May 3, 1944, Kipp/Huletsky claimed four Fw 190's in Black Rufe. Those four victories saw 418 achieve their 100th victory, air and ground combined. Hence, the 100 applied to the nose art of this Mosquito. HTH Mark Proulx
