  1. From this post down about the disadvantages of the Zvezda model. Sorry, but I'll have to use a translator: http://scalemodels.ru/modules/forum/viewtopic_p_1694384.html#1694384
  2. "Apparently at the end of July 1940 - an order reached the Geschwader which was received with some lack of understanding and not a little irritation: the order decreed that wearing of the Geschwader emblem - the "Ace of Spades" - on the unit's aircraft was forbidden as of that date. Unfortunately, neither the name of the office that issued the order nor its contents have survived; all that is known is that the "Ace of Spades" emblem disappeared from the unit's aircraft and for a time was replaced by a narrow, approximately 25-centimeter-wide, red band around the engine cowling... The "Ace of Spades” emblem was reinstated on 20 November 1940 and could once again appear on the engine cowlings of the Geschwader’s aircraft. The official reason for the reintroduction of the emblem was the 500th victory by the Geschwader." - (c) Jochen Prien, "Jagdgeschwader 53: A History of the "Pik As" Geschwader Vol.1"
  3. The devil emblem of 2./JG26 was gray not red. http://scalemodels.ru/images/2021/01/1610823967_Messerschmitt-Bf-109E1-2-JG26-Red-13-Bonninghardt-March-1940-01.jpg
  4. Here is the T6+IH at the Kraynitsi airfield in Bulgaria for inspection by Tsar Boris, accompanied by Commodore Dinort and General Wolfram von Richthofen. Pay attention to the modification and balkencross
  5. There were never two machine guns in the rear fuselage, there was only one upper one. What did at the bottom of the fuselage tail on the Hasegawa model was a hook for gliders. The machine gun in the rear fuselage as an option was installed from the end of 1940, and could stand on all early modifications. See photos He111H-3 Wnr.3349 A1+CM 4./KG53 which made a belly landing 18 February 1941 Ovington, near Watton, Norfolk.
  6. Visually, it is replacing the VDM metal propeller, on a wooden propeller and an enlarged spinner http://scalemodels.ru/images/2016/11/1478787117_123.jpg http://scalemodels.ru/modules/forum/viewtopic_p_1310406.html#1310406

  10. The problem with Akan paints is that in different batches of paints with the same name, different shades of paint. Here AMT-4 and A-19 from different parties: http://scalemodels.ru/modules/forum/viewtopic_t_80952.html Here Is AMT-7: http://scalemodels.ru/modules/forum/viewtopic_p_1631040.html#1631040 Here is the British BS450 Dark Earth: http://scalemodels.ru/modules/forum/viewtopic_p_1629650.html#1629650 Unfortunately, there are many such examples
  11. "- Dobrý den Zajímalo by mě,zdali ještě žije new tool Albacore 1/72 Děkuji Petr - Nebojte se, žije. Bude to jedna z novinek 2021. Část forem je již hotova. - nový Albacore jsme začali dělat před Bf 109E, takže v té kvalitě nebude. Ale bude dost dobrý, nebojte." https://www.modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?p=2377883#p2377883
  12. 1:144 http://www.pas-decals.ru/forum/novosti/1078-novinki-vostochnyj-ekspress?start=702#41339 - And the 707 and the 727 makes sense to wait? - B-727 will be first 100, then 200, wait for early next year, but not from "Eastern Express". I can't say more yet. It will be a good "short-run", not worse than "Eastern Express"
