  1. Best camo of this type I've ever seen...I tried such one on a 1/48 Hs 129B, however it did not come as I expected
  2. Airbrush for 13 pounds...so which brand? It's quite cheap even in PRC,
  3. First of all, difference of windscreen, cause armoured glass fitted in the frame... A vacu part maybe suitable. Tailwheel had 2 versions, earlier G had the smaller one. Also propellers need to be modified. However, G-6 cowl gun chutes are hard to backdate to G-2. Panel lines on access such as fuel altered too..
  4. Is your first photo showing a "rebuilt" B-24A? IMHO on early versions, front landing gear doors moved inside nose (as B-24D in second photo)
  5. Do you mean the cowling length is for R2000 "postwar" version, with R-1830 fitted?
  6. So rare....I got one in 2008 for about $20, then my friend took a $9 bargain last year...However it usually costs over $40. Build it or not? IMHO we can expect ICM scale down it, ITA kit overall is OK, but cockpit and gear bay seems crude now. Several years ago I tried to convert it to an N-2......I wonder I finish it before ICM release one.
  7. I checked my Valiant Wings Bf109 late series, it said FISK 199 was converted from G-1/R1, referring to this photo, I think VW is right: http://me109.airwar1946.nl/family/Images/kffisk199-2.jpg We cannot see antenna, but comparing with main wheels, the tail wheel should be the smaller(290mm in diameter?) one, different from larger and not retractable tail wheel on G-3/4 and so on...
  8. A TAM F4U-1 with Quickboost -2 radome maybe cheaper than HAS?
  9. Academy had some kit tooled with Heller kits" reference", such as P-39Q/N, Fi156, so I wonder whether they copied T-6G
  10. Sorry for my careless....I was at work that time, searched "G-4/R3", saw a photo showed 2 drop tanks, then post it here.....
  11. Yes, like Gunze Mr. color, RAF camo set replaced "dark tan" "ochre" or "dark green"
  12. This difference also caused engine nacelles moved outside.
  13. Is it a G-10/U2 or G-6/AS? It's hard to distinguish these versions. By the way, quite a lot sources have said Bf109 recons had their weapons removed, however not all....such as the famous (at least famous colour scheme) G-8 "white 14"in Albania. So, there maybe not ALL recon 109s had cowl guns removed. For this G-4/R3, the port gun chute indicated cowl MG17 removed, but without fairing; https://www.asisbiz.com/il2/Bf-109G/Aufkl/pages/Messerschmitt-Bf-109G4R3-2.(F)123-4U+YK-unknown-pilot-Greece-1943-01.html On this Bf 109F-4/R3(or F-6?) , also no fairings.
  14. I built a Hobbyboss kit in 2011/12 with decals provided in the kit:
  15. Thanks a lot, J-W. The "white B" looks same to Italei second marking scheme, however windows painted over are different, also something wrong with decal: mission marks on rudder with different dimensions.
