    Bühligen's FW 190 D-Day

    While I appreciate you responding you might want to review what was written there might be some confusion. First there is no information at all on your webpage or on any one distributing your decals to provide answers to my question as I posed in the first post. You provided more information in your post that is slightly helpful, but all that is out there is a short description from your page: Nothing in that description tells me when that aircraft is identified to him and hence why I wanted to confirm what he flew on D-Day and of the decals covered that time. And I can't find a single image of your decals that might include instructions or other imagery from the sheet other that the link to one picture I provided in the first post, and that only provides side shots of the four aircraft on that sheet. Second Sturmovik was talking about the camo description for another set of decals not for Bühligen's aircraft so not sure why you brought up the camo pattern on Buhligen's aircraft. Thanks for the info.

    Bühligen's FW 190 D-Day

    Wow that is a great photo and I would have probably never have found it through the searches I was doing. So do the eagle decals have decent descriptions? I was able to find some illustrations of the 1/72 sheet with his plane on it but there didn't seem to be a lot of info on them. I guess I am spoiled from my recent aviaeology sheets.

    Bühligen's FW 190 D-Day

    Thanks that seems to confirm it was an A-8. The eagle decals had little to no information in them that I could find and the accounts I read just mentioned him flying a 190.

    Bühligen's FW 190 D-Day

    So I am looking to try and build one of the German aircraft that flew on the initial day of Overlord or in the immediate days after Overlord. I was thinking of doing the FW190 that Major Bühligen flew for JG2 in 1/72. I found a set of decals that has a FW190 identified to him but I am not sure of the time frame those decals cover. It is this one here: http://www.eagle-editions.com/aircraft-decals-for-the-modeler/72/fw-190s/eaglecals-10-fw-190-doras-fs-and-as.html I have also been unable to find out exactly what model of the 190 he flew and if those decals are in the d-day time frame. I think form what little info I have found he was in an A8 but not sure. Does anyone have any information on those decals and and exactly what model 190 he flew?

    Detail paint brush recommendations

    Yeah my current weathering brush are well worn. They don't get babied at all and get a lot of road travel rocking around in the box with my weather pigments and paints when going to shows! All of what I have has come from the local big box arts & crafts stores but they are all the cheap nylon stuff that come in the mixed packets. However if I am going to spend money on dedicated brushes I don't want ones that will disintegrate after a few uses. Some of those series 7 brushes are over $30 a piece so I don't want to flush money down the proverbial toilet!

    Detail paint brush recommendations

    So I am looking around to get some better detail brushes than the taklon ones I currently have been using in weathering my scale trains using acrylics. In looking around I was interested in getting some nice sable brushes like the Winsor & Newton series 7 in 0 and 00 sizes to do detail painting on things like cockpits but I see that there seems to be recommended for watercolors and not to use any harsh cleaners like thinner. I plan on using acrylics and enamels so not sure if those would work or not. So what brushes (and materials) would be good that can be used with both enamels and acrylics?
