  1. Yep, Brilliant. Great paint job, looks very realistic. Nailed it.
  2. All been said. Brilliant modelling and painting. Have been a bit skeptical of AK's RLM colours but they look great on your Macchi.
  3. A Bf 109G-6 in 1:1 = 9.02m A Bf 109G-6 in 1/32 = 28.1875 cm A Bf 109G-6 in 1/35 = 25.7714 cm A difference in length of 2.4161 cm. in the two models. Noticeable? probably not to most modellers and certainly not to the general public viewer of your diorama. I say go with 1/32 as it will open up your choice of aircraft available.
  4. I've found my template for adding some interior detail when I get around to doing mine. Great job.
  5. Turned out really well Werdna. The scheme is very convincing (with the research and general consensus) as well as being quite striking. Nicely done.
  6. Excellent job on a difficult kit. Nice touch with the tarps, I think it suits the feel of the aircraft getting ready for ops or preparing for bed. Weathering is top notch. Very nicely done.
  7. True Werdna. Would also require new sprues (ie fuselage & wings) as there were differences between the Ta 152C and H versions. Supercharger for instance was on opposite sides. Lost opportunity all the same.
  8. I'm starting to think that Werdna. It's been said before by myself and others that we wish Eduard and Hobby Boss extended their line of Fw 190's (and Ta 152C in the case of HB) into the Ta 152H, but sadly not forth coming. I suppose only a handful of airframes produced and not a lot of variation in camo is their downfall. Not a big fan of open panels either. (Started a thread which covered this topic a while ago). https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235071375-open-panels-doors-or-clean-all-buttoned-up/&tab=comments#elShareItem_1866496982_menu Managed
  9. Hey 'Of Models & Monsters' got a start on this kit yet? I won't be surprised if you haven't after reading through a couple of builds. It's certainly pushed my ZM Ta 152 back down the list a fair bit. Sorry for putting a bad vibe on your build but I do wish you the best for this build and can only advise you to read through previous builds to get an insight into each step so that you may avoid some of the pitfalls of the kit. Good luck and remember it is only a hobby, something we do to relax.
  10. Beautifully done but if it's such a pain to build why doesn't someone else come to the party? I'm almost dreading starting mine but if I want a Ta 152H it's about the only way to go. Only Trimaster/Dragon/Italeri and ZM produce the Ta-152H in 1/48. Hobby Boss have the Ta-152C-0, C-1, C-1/R14, C-11 but stopped there (along with the whole Fw 190D family. D-9, 10, 11. 12 & 13) Missed opportunity if you ask me.
  11. I would agree with you on your assessment of possible colours Werdna. Wing uppers 77/82 - Not confirmed but likely and seen on other a/c Rear fuselage/tail - part under the rear tailplane seems lighter than the rest of the lower fuselage. Possibly 76, (looks the same on 'White 8'). Upper part same 76 but with mottling (your choice of 75 or 82 or both) Rudder - Who knows. Could be a replacement so have fun with it. As with all grainy, from a distance, 75 year old photos nobody can categorically say your right or wrong. As we know at that time of the war things were h
  12. From 'Bf 109 Late Versions - Camouflage & Markings' by Krzysztof W. Wolowski (MMP Books) Caption of that exact same picture from your linked site of 'White 8' reads - 'Bf 109K-4 W.Nr 332884 probably 9./JG 3 and possibly at Leck, May 1945. The entire camouflage can be discerned here, including: cowling painted RLM 77 and 75; fuselage painted 81 and 82, over 84; and vertical tail painted 75 with small, rather blurred blotches of 82. (USAF)' RLM 84 in the book is the greenish grey colour often used on late war fuselages sides and lower su
  13. Great rendition Fishbone, looks superb. Decal subjects look interesting too (I so want a VF-111 Sundowner F-5). BUT 40 euro? Crikey, it's gotta be able to get me breakfast each morning for that. 1 x Dream Model F-5E or 5 x Hobby Boss F-5E's Hmmm...... Interested to see when it's finally released.
  14. Brilliant thanks Troy, I have seen that MiG 21 version run through before but I'll make sure I get a copy of it, very useful info. Going to keep pestering you though. Still trying to clear up what Nile Valley camo really is. Is it Sand, Green & Brown or Sand and 2 Greens (hard to tell from most pics) The darker shade does seem to have an RLM 81 Brown Violet shade about it. Is it a style of camo like that of the aircraft below - Large splotches outlined with another colour? This one has the colours reversed. What about th
