  1. Good afternoon, I present my finished work. Served as a prototype Supermarine Spitfire Mk.I K9977 P/O Archie McKellar, 602 Squadron, RAF Drem, 28 Oktober 1939
  2. Good afternoon. I present for your judgment a model from the company Tamiya No. 60790 Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-6 in 1/72 scale. I will describe what I liked and what I did not like when assembling this model. Pros: - high-quality casting - study of small details; - cockpit detailing - easy assembly; - requires very little putty. Cons of the set: - plastic, it is soft. Not like the spilled hard plastic of previous models. I enjoyed working with him better. But this is a biased opinion; - decals (Thick, Japanese. Note that only Mr. Mark Softer works very well); - no outboard weapons, although the G-6 was equipped with them in large numbers. Strange solution from Tamiya; - the price of a set, a very expensive set. But if you take it directly from Japan it will be much cheaper. Dye: The following primary colors were used in painting the set: - Gunze Sangyo H 68 RLM74 Dark Gray Semi-Gloss / German Aircraft WW II - Gunze Sangyo H 69 RLM75 Gray Semi-Gloss / German Aircraft WW II - Gunze Sangyo H 417 RLM76 Light Blue Semi-Gloss / German Aircraft WW II - Gunze Sangyo H 413 RLM04 Yellow Semi-Gloss / German Aircraft WW II Decal and Masks: - Emblem, victories and crosses - AeroMaster 72-075C - Mediterranean Bf 109s of JG 53 - Number 2 - Kitsworld KW172029 'Luftwaffe Fighter Numbers' - Swastika - Behemoth Prototype: My choice fell on Messerschmitt Bf-109G6 "Black 2", 5.JG53, Oberfeldwebel Herbert Rollwage, Vienna-Seyring, Austria, December 1943. Here are some famous photos of this prototype. Messerschmitt Bf-109G6 "Black 2", 5.JG53, Oberfeldwebel Herbert Rollwage, Vienna-Seyring, Austria, december 1943. Pilot biography: Herbert Rollwage was born on 24 September 1916 at Gielde near Goslar in Niedersachsen. He joined the Luftwaffe in 1936. In spring 1941, Rollwage was posted to JG 53. Unteroffizier Rollwage was assigned to 5./JG 53. He claimed his first victory on the opening day of Operation Barbarossa, the invasion of Russia on 22 June, when he shot down a Russian SB-2 twin-engined bomber. By 5 October he had claimed 11 Russian aircraft shot down, including three victories recorded on 27 August. II./JG 53 was transferred to the Mediterranean theatre in December 1941. By the end of October 1942, Rollwage had claimed 20 British aircraft, mainly RAF Spitfires, shot down over Malta. He was shot down in aerial combat over Koufonisi island on 10 November 1942 in Bf 109 G-2 (W.Nr. 105 00) “Black 5”. Rollwage force-landed his damaged aircraft having also received wounds in the enagagement. Operating over Tunisia from December 1942, Oberfeldwebel Rollwage claimed a further six victories. On 2 March 1943, he was shot down in near Pont-du-Fahs following an interception of USAAF B-17 four-engined bombers as they approached Bizerta. Escorting RAF Spitfires chased Rollwage hitting his Bf 109 G-4 (W.Nr. 160 67) and wounding him. He force-landed his shot up aircraft near Bou Arada. It is thought his victor was the British ace F/Lt Roy Hussey (12 confirmed, 1 probable and 4.5 damaged victories, KIFA 20 February 1945) of 72 Sqn, RAF. Relocated to Sicily in May 1943, Rollwage claimed a further 10 victories, including two four-engined bombers. He recorded his 40th victory on 13 June 1943. On 10 July, Rollwage was badly wounded in aerial combat near San Pietro but managed to regain his base although his Bf 109 G-6 (W.Nr. 182 42) was classified as 100% damaged. Rollwage spent several months in hospital as a result. Rollwage returned to combat duty and 5./JG 53, now based at Vienna-Seyring in Austria operating on Reichsverteidigung duties, in December 1943 after recovery from the wounds he received in July. He had 47 victories to his credit at this time. He recorded his 50th victory on 22 February 1944, a Herausschuss of a USAAF B-24 four-engined bomber between Altötting and Straubing. Rollwage was awarded the Ritterkreuz on 5 April for 53 victories. He recorded his 60th victory on 27 May when he shot down a USAAF P-51 fighter near Rambervillers. On 10 August 1944, newly promoted Leutnant Rollwage was appointed Staffelkapitän of 5./JG 53. He recorded his 70th victory on 25 November when he shot down a US Army reconnaisance light plane near Mommerheim. Rollwage left II./JG 53 on 5 December 1944 having been assigned to 2./JG 106 as an instructor. Leutnant Rollwage was awarded the Eichenlaub (Nr. 713) on 24 January 1945. In early April 1945, Rollwage returned to II./JG 53. It is thought that he never officially returned to the Gruppe, rather that after II./JG 53 moved to Ulm-Ristissen, the former base of II./JG 106 which was being disbanded, Rollwage attached himself to II./JG 53 where he stayed until war’s end. He gained a number of victories with the unit. Rollwage survived the war. He died at Gielde on 4 January 1980. Herbert Rollwage’s victory total is not known for sure but he did fly a total of 664 missions. It is known he was credited with 71 victories, including 11 recorded over the Eastern front. It is thought his final total may be between 80 and 85. Some sources credit Rollwage with 102 victories, including 44 four-engined bombers but it is thought that this number is in error.

  3. Good day. Thank you for your feedback. I saw numbers written in chalk, but due to the fact that they are hard to read on the video, I did not start applying them. But this video is very interesting not because Eric's plane is captured, but because there are planes with drawings (head of an Indian, Pluto of the pilot of Ford). It is a pity that the decal manufacturers did not reproduce them. And also there is R6885 EB-A which will also be lost on 09/05/40
  5. 1. I am not aggressive. You may have read before that I am writing through a translator, maybe he doesn’t draw the true message of my words to you. 2. Why write about the rights to photos where people are waiting for topics for the material on the assembly of models. I wanted to trim all the material that I have been collecting for years. And whatever it went with me to the grave) 3. It is your right not to upload photos. 4. Do not write about the rights, write there from where I took them - just type Google in the search)
  6. My grandfather's brother Smirnov Alexander Fedorovich. He served in the tank military. Participated in the storming of Berlin. They are heroes as well as the people that are shown in the photos I post. And I want them to know. And the fact that I take them from the Internet, well, forgive you, the guardians missed it) And I am proud that I can post these photos to you. And they are not personal. They are our wealth that we lose over time. Each spelling or their photographs or spelling of the name bears a folder for the generation. Although I think that your repentance, like mine, no longer needs to bottom. They have their heroes. Sorry, but I think your little bit remembers stories of fathers. And for now that now it doesn’t matter what the pictures are and who they belong to.) They have their own heroes ( And I ask you not to write about the rights. I am joining one resource with everything that is on the network. Start with those from whom I take these photos)
  7. My great-grandfather Konstantin G. Astafurov. died near Kharkov, 1942. He died when France, Goladniya, Denmark, Norway lay under Germany for my future and for my future. I am proud that I can show you the face of the person who saved you. And not for his use to keep his photo. I want you to know who you owe to life and well-being.
  8. Good day. Here I am interested in what you are so stung in this topic? What do I post photos (all on the Internet are)? Or the fact that I collect the archive? Well, since you are hard advocates of justice, let’s find relatives with me who will take photographs and ask for permission, or at least find out the owner of the photos. Only hear what is wrong or otherwise. Yes, you keep your photos in your home and all. I publish everything that is on the Internet and do not have the right to put watermarks or the like. I took photos from the Internet, and there clearly wasn’t a different type of family permission. Well, I emphasize that almost 80 years have passed since those events.
  9. Good day. I do not violate copyright. I indicate the source. There are all these photos on the network (and in many places and without reference to the resource from where they took them), I combine them all into one resource and edit them if necessary. And I did not understand the two posts above - are you against my work, or do you remember the consequences for me for not specifying copyrights, or the owners of which photos? I have a problem in the description of the photos and links to the resource. But I after laid out trying to gradually fix it. But it takes time. It is for this reason that I ask for help in the description of the photos.
  10. L1829 - Hawker-built First Production Bath ( Winston G. Ramsey - The Battle of Britain Then and Now Mk.V). You can also find a photo and description of this aircraft in Battle of Britain Combat Archive Simon W. Parry. Vol. 4 14 august-15 august.
  11. I wrote you a message in flickr answer it. I'll send you a photo of 501 Squadron
  12. I cited a source that said that it is L1829. Unfortunately I do not have big data. Here are more sources: https://books.google.ru/books?id=fABzCgAAQBAJ&pg=PA2251&lpg=PA2251&dq=Hurricane+L1829&source=bl&ots=9O_G29KANu&sig=ACfU3U0wZqc6GkxGD4BSNRlbJC1-ow_QDg&hl=ru&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjn4abUs8HgAhVi6KYKHWNAC_wQ6AEwAXoECAkQAQ#v=onepage&q=Hurricane L1829&f=false http://www.bbm.org.uk/airmen/Truran.htm http://www.rafcommands.com/database/serials/index.php?cur=250&qmem=L&qnum=&qname=Hurricane&qt=NN&qa1=L&qa2=&qn1=&qn2=&qn3=&qn4=
