  1. some other interesting relics showing RLM 74 bf109 from a bf110 bf109 bf109 ruder
  2. this is wonderful relics form a mate from Czech republic, the 109 radio panel is in excellent condition showing the rlm 74 I been testing colors and found that Tamiya XF-63 is a very close match to the RLM 74 of my relics
  3. just found this interesting thread, I would like to add my two cents, been researching these colors for some time now, I have not tried the AK colors but in the pictures posted here they seem to be quite off... I have some plywood relics from a late 109 stabilizer containing RLM 74/75/76 very well preserved, what can be more accurate then the real thing? I have also made some comparisons with some ww2 photos and other examples also. The main problem I see is with RLM 74 been represented by most paint brands as too greenish color, it was more a just dark grey, that can be confirmed also with the original 1941 farbtontafel color chart
  4. Hi mate, the wood floor were separate pieces, here you have some reference pictures, also a "B"model cockpit, cheers
  5. very cool project!!! looks awesome, one tip if I may, the radio battery rack was as NAA footage shows, and the wood floor was only black painted in the areas where the feet was in contact, the other was in IG and there was an brownish canvas under the seat to access the ventilation system, some pics here, cheers
  6. nice job Matt!! looks like the whole firewall of the navigator /bombardier was insulated with pad, here some good ww2 shots, keep the good! cheers
  7. Looks very promising build mate!!! gonna follow, but please don't paint the fuselage halves green, there is a wrongly conception of this based on modern restauration and warbirds, in ww2 "G" models were just bare metal and green olive insulation pad in the cockpit and in the navigator and bombardier firewall only! interesting reading here: https://inchhighguy.wordpress.com/2019/09/11/b-17-flying-fortress-interior-colors-part-i/ check the picture section of this awesome and accurate b17 cockpit: https://www.facebook.com/b17cockpit/ cheers
  8. Hello everyone, going to build this bird flown by Ace Wallace Hopkins of the 361st Fighter Group, here some reference pictures of "Ferocious Frankie" as I'm intended to represent, cheers
  9. yes, can be seen in this South African Mustangs in Korea, picture credit: Martin Kyburz
  10. I was given a F1 maintenance manual by someone who worked at the airbase, the second photo was taken in the late 80s at Ala 14 air base installations, hope it helps cheers
  11. nice, I went to uni and lived many years in Valencia seems like MB Mk4. were the ones used in the F1, here you have more reference pictures, cheers! keep the good https://www.christies.com/lotfinder/Lot/a-british-martin-baker-mk4-ejector-seat-circa-5869601-details.aspx
