  1. Many thanks. I just emailed Davide an inquiry. I hope he will produce Italian WW II subjects in the near future.
  2. Those figures look fantastic! How can one contact Davide Bellucci directly?
  3. Thank you Michael for your kind help. I also have photos of the 3 Ki-61-II's in Kagero's excellent Ki-61/Ki-100 book. The razor back with the Japanese kanji character for thunderbolt is a post war captured Ki 61-II with fictional markings applied for display at Paterson air base in Dayton, Ohio. So far I only found photos of 2 original operational Japanese Ki-61-II (razorback #17 and the bubble top from 56th Sentai which is surprisingly dissapointing considering recent references state about 99 Ki-61-II were completed).
  4. Recently read a fascinating article by Don Marsh and James Long at j-aircraft about the sole surviving Ki 61-II "5017" marked #17 at Fussa test center. The article mentioned a second Ki-61-II razorback version marked #10 for 5010 from a full-profile photograph. Although #17 is well documented and photos easily found in references, I can not find the photo of #10. Would appreciate any reference source for a photo of Ki 61-II marked #10. Fine Molds and RS have #10 on their respective decal sheets. The first edition of RS 1/72 Ki-61-II razorback version also features #30 at Fussa, but I
  5. Luftwaffe Im Focus #3, page 37 shows the tail of Lt. Udo Cortes's Ju88 C-6, werk-nr. 360379. The caption states 5K+RT. Unfortunately the fuselage side codes are not visible in the photo. Don't know how the authors derived the fuselage code. Usually a clear photo of the fuselage code, eye-witness testimony, records, etc. would help, but I am not aware of any of these for Cortes's Ju 88 C-6, werk-nr. 360379.
