  1. close ups start about 1:00 into the film https://collections.ushmm.org/search/catalog/irn1001754
  2. Thank you for the info on the big "4A" on the lower wing surfaces. For once, just in time to get something right on my build (Tamiya 1/48 using Aeromaster decals) Richard
  3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dXDl60fLdo starts at 9:45 Richard
  4. Cybermodeler gives "November 2020" for a release date. Richard
  5. Nothing at all; I cited the Potez 63.11 as pictured in Heather Kay's message 2 postings down from yours. Richard
  6. Did they have a competition going? (tried to insert a smiling emoji and failed) If so, there were two categories: - the least aerodynamic (built from leftover IKEA parts): NC 223, Farman 222, Amiot 143, Bloch MB 200 & 210, Potez 540 & 650, Loire 130M - the excessively aerodynamic : Breguet 693 & 695, Potez 63.11 - if the designers were unsatisfied with their efforts, they bought ugly planes (try Cunliffe Owen OA1) The "ugly duckling" idea is a minor point I gained from Christian-Jaques Ehrengardt's excellent "Camouflages & Marques de l'Aviation Francaise 19

  10. Colors 0f the Falcons: Do you recommend this book?
  11. Italy entered the war on July 10, 1940. A bombing attack 2 months earlier is unlikely. Cheers.
  12. The entry/exit hatch on standard Ju88s opened against the slipstream. Were there any conversions for agent dropping? He111's were used for agent dropping. Richard
  13. Built Accurate Miniature's B-25 as "Dirty Dora", using the kit-supplied stencils and decals for the bat-motive. I like the result very much, the OD and light blue do go together quite well. Richard
