  1. Oh, the very same I have planned to build! Lovely result! I like this one so much I had to make a profile of it!
  2. Amazing book! The best on aircraft engine I've ever read. Kjetil
  3. I love this plane. I just managed to get trhe book on the type, even if it was very expensive. You will find loads of interesting schemes for the C.445 in it! https://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=30921799916&cm_sp=collections-_-4n8hdS3dyDiSnq9Nnw6Tcp_item_1_34-_-bdp Lovely build! I have one in my stash I'll build as one serving with a unit in Norway.
  4. Oh, that is fantastic! Thanksforsharing.
  5. My pleasure. I hope you find what you are looking for.
  6. Thanks. Under the wingsonly the individualletter appeared in black, in the case above the "A".
  7. A typical Bf 110G-2 from this time would look something like this (my drawing):
  8. Yes, that would be 13.(Z)/JG 5. They flew pretty much standard Bf 110G-2s at the time, sometimes with an additional twin MG 151 canister under the fuselage. Unfortunately, I know of no image of 1B+NX from this time so its specifics are not known. But it was almost certainly finished in standard RLM 74/75/76 colours with black codes. The story of your father's shootdown from the German perspective is to be found in Erik Mombeek's JG 5 chronicles,Vol.1. p. 217, but only in German, unfortunately. Let me know if you want a scan of the page. Kjetil
  9. As someone with a special interest in the Argentine aircraft generally and especially of the Malvinas war, it never ceases to amaze me how alive the "threat" from Argentina still is in the minds of many British. This thread was interesting so thanks for all the input. I too, will be most eager to see what Argentina eventually ends up with regarding their interceptor force. To me the JF 17 does not seem too bad a choice, but from a modeller's perspective that plane is just ugly! I think the MiG-35 would be the best choice, though, if the Argentinians could ever scrape together enough financial support to buy the numbers needed.
  10. No problem, mate. If you need more info on Soviet bombs I have a WWII German report detailing them with great illustrations. Kjetil
  11. Sometimes we need to be reminded! Especially about aviation books, there is so much we want to get hold of, right!?
