  1. Bet it's in the wrong shades of OD/NG, too...
  2. Add in differing manufacturers, bill of materials changes over time, and batch-to-batch variance even from the same manufacturer, and it's a wonder we see matches at all...
  3. I wasn't sure if this belonged here or in the WWII area, but the last surviving Northrop N9M Flying Wing crashed a little while ago in a prison yard at Norco, California, several miles east of the plane's home at the Planes of Fame Museum in Chino. No one on the ground was hurt, but the aircraft was totally destroyed and the pilot apparently perished. It's a sad day for aviation history buffs. I was lucky enough to have seen it in the pattern at the Ontario (California) airport a number of years ago and was hoping to see it again someday.
  4. Man, I'm probably going to get flak for this, but I don't think there would've been a Mk 22 at all without an earlier beginning to the War. The Air Ministry, according to what I've read, originally felt the Spitfire wouldn't be amenable to development past 1941 or 1942, so in a 1946 BoB scenario, we would likely see planes that aren't Spits.

    Hey!

    Hi, guys and gals. I'm recently retired, have been building models since my childhood, and am starting to get back into the hobby after a spell away. My current interest is 1:48 WWII fighters, both Allied and Axis. My last real model efforts were when enamels ruled and acrylics were just beginning to show up, so it's been a while. I've been lurking around here a bit soaking up Spitfire lore, and decided to sign up. I'm looking forward to being able to learn and contribute in some small manner along the way. ---Royce---
