    Tomahawk IIA Query

    Aircraft in the foreground seems to have a left aileron with the camo pattern shared by the other two aircraft.

    Nice picture! The two background aircraft have a different pattern to the aircraft in the foreground. Was there different factory camo patterns?

    Tomahawk IIA Query

    It looks to me like the dark "painted" area of the port wing is actually a shadow from the fuselage.

    Eduard Tempest

    A bit of progress. Primed with Alclad Semi Matte Aluminum. Paints are Mr. Paint straight from the bottle.

    What kind of Yak-9 is this?

    You are right! That is NOT a Yak- 9M. I don't know what I was thinking.

    They look like Su-2s to me. Kate had more wing dihedral than that . the Yak taking off looks like a Yak-9V . The first Yak does look like either a Yak-9M, D or something along those lines, definitely not a Yak-3.

    Some users unable to connect

    I have had to go to a free VPN service to connect to BM. I have AT&T and when I try to get on normally it times out after getting the DNS address from Sbcglobal.net. I wasn't sure if posting the name of the free VPN was ok so LEt me know if anyone could use it. I've been having this issue for 2 weeks now.

    Best/Most accurate FW190D-11 in 1/48?

    I have tested using the new Eduard Fw190-A upper wing to the Eduard Fw190-D and it is a perfect fit. So if you had the overtree kit of the New A-8 then you would not have to worry about the separate gun covers.

    Best/Most accurate FW190D-11 in 1/48?

    The HobbyBoss kit does build up nice and easy but it is missing the upper and lower bump for the outboard wing cannons as well as the gun port being too far out on the wing. None of the 1/48 kits got the supercharger intake correct. it would seem that all of them are based on a museum example except for the Revell trimaster based kit which is the closest to what the real supercharger intake looked like.
  10. Very nice work! I couldn't take my eyes off of the nose of the aircraft the finish and weathering is so good! There is only one small problem That I feel compelled to point out.............IT"S NOT ON MY SHELF!!!

    B-26G vs B-26B wing incidence angle

    That is a tremendous help! Thank you!

    Is theis trip necessary Mustang

    Interesting, all the odd number planes in one row in front of the even number planes.

    B-26G vs B-26B wing incidence angle

    I seem to recall that the B-26G had the wing incident angle changed by 3 degrees to help with landing attitude. My question is this: Where was the center of rotation for changing the angle? In my way of thinking there could be four points that the change could be made from. Leading edge ( least likely since photos would seem to indicate a different location where it meets the fuselage between the two models) Front wing spar ( most likely in my mind ) rear wing spar or trailing edge I ask because I am formulating a plan to alter a monogram kit to a B-26G but the location of the pivot point potentially will make a huge difference in approaching the changes necessary . So does anyone have any input on where the pivot point should be?

    Tempest Mk. V wingtip light question

    Thanks to all who replied. I have decided to go with clear covers and colored bulbs/ lenses since I have found proof of this set up on Series I aircraft as in the pictures above. Does anyone have a close up of the museums TT Mk.V wingtip? I am now trying to find out which side the bulb protrudes from under the clear cover.
