    Red Baron D VII

    Hhmmmm..........wonder what his Me109 would have looked like?
  2. Lol, yuup! that's quite a good likeness there Mike. Fantastic build, mind if I print out the article and stash in the box for when I get around to building mine? Regards, Pete in RI
  3. The tracking people obviously saw you were watching them so thought they had better make you a top prioroty!

  5. nice job Mark! you have done a great job on this classic kit. Regards, Pete in RI
  6. Yep, totally agree. Regards, Pete in RI
  7. Hiya, Looking at my paint refs, AK have MC 248, a yellow ochre, MC249 a red/brown, and MC250 a dark green. Looks very similar to late WW2 German armour colours. MIG charts use 077, 078, and 079, again, ochre, red/brown, and green. If you google their websites you should be able to find colour swatches, and match them up to the paints you have in stock. Regards, Pete in RI.

    Fury colours

    Yep, 'tis a difficult topic for sure. The easy way out is to model a 'plane that has photo's that clearly show silver squares, of which many abound. Regards, Pete in RI.

    Fury colours

    Well, just checked my copy ( page 3, first photo in the book!) and the fuselage squares look white to me, matching much better with the portion of roundel white that can be seen than the silver. On the top wing, more difficult due to bright sun, but to my eye there appears to be a slight difference between the wing and square, with the wing being slightly more "grey" looking. Regards, Pete in RI
  11. I second that, talk to Elvington. The full name is The Yorkshire Air Museum. If you are in England, they are just a few miles outside of York in Elvington village, on the old bomber airfield. Well worth a visit when everything opens up again. The staff there are a very helpful and friendly bunch, and they have an excellent library, plus a hall dedicated to turrets and a/c armament. Regards, Pete in RI
  12. Moa!! are you reading this ? Top notch info John, thank you. Regards, Pete in RI
  13. Hi Duncan, there are a couple of pics over on LSP, can't wait to see this in the flesh. If it is the WNW kit, that would be awesome! Regards, Pete in RI.
  14. Yuup, I suffer from the same affliction. Wonder why it takes two years to finish anything??? lol Regards Pete in RI.
  15. Hi Jamie, Pete in RI here. Glad to see you back on the Hood, and the PoW is looking fantastic. I have been pondering the deck issue also with my build, and am leaning towards using the Pontos deck, but giving it a coat of clear then painting as per EJ's build. Yes, I know it will...err....take a while......but having seen a few builds of various 1/200 ships that used a/m wood decks ( Pontos and others) I get the impression that they look rather too bland and monotone, and that the decks need an extra something to bring them to life. Hope that makes sense. Regards, Pete.
  16. Yep, sorry, gloss white base coat. Add any preshading too. Regards, Pete in RI

    Eindekker questions

    That's a cool memory Melvin, thank you for sharing.
  18. That is a really nice bit of research, well done and thank you
  19. oooohhhhh.........I'm in for this.
  20. Probably the same as the nearby hull colour. Regards, Pete in RI
  21. hhmm....google Tyneside ship building WW1, that may give you an idea of what the general area looked like at the time. Or, google WW1 South Shields. Regards, Pete in RI
  22. Being out in the colonies, the only way I can get Bottom is on YouTube.
  23. Hi Dave, the exgausts were welded steel pipes, so the started out the colour of a new car exhaust pipe but faily quickly weathered to a burnt rusty. Nip over to Memorial Flight website and see their photo's, or go to the WNW's site and look at their colour photo's. Regards, Pete in RI
  24. Especially with Dick Dastardly and Mutley in the cockpits and Clunk standing near!! lol
