  1. The aircraft was restored to flying condition by the joint USAAF/USN/Royal Australian Air Force Technical Air Intelligence Unit (TAIU) at Eagle Farm, Brisbane, Australia in late 1942 and early 1943. The aircraft was sent for evaluation at Wright Field in the US and wearing post-1943 style US insignia. Fate unknown. According to an article on J-aircraft.com Main Page, a war-time report said the over-all colour was "dove grey". PUBLIC DOMAIN
  2. Two RCAF pilots https://www.thecanadianencyclopedia.ca/en/article/allan-bundy http://www.vintagewings.ca/VintageNews/Stories/tabid/116/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/342/Black-Buffalo.aspx
  3. A very cool looking machine, very oddball.
  4. Thank you gentlemen Take your time around the front end as they are a bit of a pain to line up
  5. Unfortunately that's not always the case, 253 Squadron in Italy
  6. This is said to be the aircraft of Capt. A.V. Schopov, of 6 IAP, 6 IAK (Fighter Air Corps), IA-PVO (Moscow Air Defence), winter 1941/42. There is no known photo of the aircraft. The box top shows gun pods under the wings but none are in the kit so that’s how its depicted. I’ve read that these pods were often removed by the ground crews as they weren’t liked. The pods were removed shortly before I took the photos. The writing on the sides say, “For Stalin” if Google Translate is to be believed. Also, a family portrait of the MiG-3 Early Version I did a while ago. The bottom was painted with Aqueous Hobby Color H67 RLM65. The top was Airbrushed with Vallejo White Primer and dry-brushed with Tamiya XF-58 Olive Green
  7. Pretty meticulous job if it was. The little tiny door of the building in the back is painted grey
  8. Very nice looking kite. I built three 104s at once. One single-seater, 104750 had different markings at different times and do you think I could get my decals together to match one....noooooooooo!!! I had to borrow some in the end
  9. Well done on brushing the mottles. You were wise to stay away from following the paint instructions for the RAF version
