  1. If you are interested, i compiled a short history of Ca.135bis U use in Hungarian service any additional info or correction for improving the article appreciated.
  2. OK here it goes. Compilation of various sources (at the bottom) liberal use of google translate etc. As said this is work in progress and i'm still unshure about couple of details. Help with further details, problems and corrections would be apreciated. If you use it please credit me and the sources. Links with pics and drawings from Parts catalogue are at the bottom. Caproni Ca.135bis U in Hungarian service compiled by Marko Tisovic Agreement between Caproni and Kingdom of Hungary for export of 32 Ca.135 aircraft was signed on 19th of June 19
  3. UMMM No. I got my on model show at Hungarian Mosonmagyaróvár (Moson model show 2019) from a guy selling his stash. I tried but couldn't find their page. They have a lot of interesting stuff (1/48 Ju-86K-2 etc) Here is Scalemates on it: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/planes-resin-caproni-ca-135bis-u--1317820
  4. I'm in need of some hungarian air force expert help here. I have a couple of question RE hungarian Air force second deployment to the eastern front (june-november 1942). I was doing some research on use of Caproni Ca.135bis U by Hungarians on the eastern front and trying to expand my knowledge on the topic a bit. Might just post my attempt here when i make sense of the mess. I'm trying to deciphre info on use of this rather obscure aircraft. Problem: I have a bit of conflicting information regarding Hunagarian air force organisation during fighting in the SSSR in 1942.
  5. Considering they did new mould for Vulcan we can still hope. I would be a customer for new Hampden, Manchester and early bubble canopied Canberra. And while ae are at wishlists an early sharkfinned B-17C/D would also be nice. I know about Planet Models Manchester problems and i'm trying to gather the courage to start it. I was pondering that and i even started to consider an option of sacrificing one Lanc to the Gods of scale modelling BTW RE Canberra, i will need to get a few belts for my belt sander for HPM Canberra
  6. Just found this. Looks like light colors on wheel spats and their struts Source http://aviadejavu.ru/Site/Arts/Art9794.htm
  7. Seems that Blackbird now carries it in their own catalogue. I would be tempted if not already having Planet model (CMK) kit in my stash. Hope they will reissue their Do-24K conversion
  8. Looking at the photos it is interesting how many variations of camo there is on hungarian Ca.135's. From bigger more spaced larger blotches to really dense small blotches where light base color almost doesn't show and some camos that seem the base is green and blotches are with yellow and brown. Camouflaged prop is interesting detail which i haven't noticed before (too focused on the plane colors). It seems that Caproni was producing planes in hope RA will take them on but they didn't. So i will basicly presume Italian camo with yellow base and green and brown blotches (full s
  9. Another great photo library: http://www.avia-info.hu/talalat.php?Ujtipus=356
  10. Thank you. After hours of surfing a site of which language i don't know: 3 color scheme???
  11. I'm familiar with these. Color profile on PlanesResin 1/72 kit (ex Cunarmodel) gives option 2 of lt.green-dk.green. BTW Italian scheme seems 3 color (yellow, green and brown) which brings 3rd option into equasion as this type was not in use in Italian use. I'm kind of weary of older books even from countries that used the planes as i got burned by older russian books or decal sets (Travers) that gave profiles in colours that we now know were false (example of brown on early war 2 tone camos).
  12. I have a question in regard of hungarian Caproni Ca.135 camo in early war years (arrow insignia period). Capronis and reggianes seem to have had original italian camouflage. While interpreting Reggiane camo seems no problem as they were also built for RA (and there is multitude of photos around), Capronis were built for export only (Peru, Spain and Hungary) and are more tricky IMHO. At least to me it seems that there is a bit of a problem interpreting the colors. From what i gather most profiles and recolored photos interpret the camo as one of the following 1. sand yellow (Gia
  13. Can anyone identify this vehicle and /or Shermann III? Need help with markings. I managed to get (thanks Hannants) Echelon Fine Decals set D726018 for "Scamell Pioneer and Sherman" in anticipation of IBG Scammel TRMU in one true scale. They themselves wrote on their micro instructions which are size of a postage stamp: "The most incomplete marking set for the Sherman & Scamemell aficionados... Oh what a heck, eh?" https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/D726018?result-token=hozYi OK this is obviously R100 artillery tractor and not TRMU (curved corner abov
