  1. Thank you, for your help. It really is a down the rabbit hole project, but I am really, really enjoying building again. I'm really grateful to all the people who have replied, it really is helping me on the scheme. Mr F
  2. Wow thank you very very much! Thats amazing information! Would 8117 be in the 74/75/76 scheme, or the earlier 70/71/65? I have had a closer look and it does look like "C3" to me.
  3. I have just found this reference picture where the 3 chevrons are in white, this picture is dated July 1941 in Ukraine... curiouser and curiouser said Alice
  4. I noticed that too. The only thing I can think is this photo is earlier / later than the F2 version I have built up. I do fear your right about the authenticity of the decals, I'd been thinking the same thing since I've been looking around for reference pics. I've looked back at th decal sheet and there are double chevrons in black, and a large single one I might be able to bodge together should I need too... I really appreciate your help with this.
  5. Thank you very much. Now just need to double check all decals are correct for the time.
  6. Great stuff thank you very much. From the research I have read there are a couple of dates "On 7 May 1941, Lützow's Bf 109 F-2 (Werknummer 8117—factory number) suffered minor damage in combat when his tail surfaces were shot up" so I assume that this would have been repaired and used again. "In preparation for Operation Barbarossa, the German invasion of the Soviet Union, the Geschwaderstab began heading east on 8 June 1941. They stopped for several days at Breslau-Gandau, the present day Wrocław–Copernicus Airport in Poland" Would this be around the time that they ha
  7. How do All, I have finally got around to starting up this hobby again after what was a terrible year (for everyone) and I am enjoying it very much, first go with PE parts and I am happy with the results for my first try. Currently for my first build of this year, I have built up the Revell ME109 F2, but I am stuck at the paint scheme. I have brought some aftermarket decals - Print Scale PSL72254 and am looking to use the Gunther Lutzow scheme that they have provided. Can anyone help with the accuracy of these decal sheets, as all reference phot
  8. Thanks for the tip! I think I have sourced some decals from a mind member on here. I have took receipt of the 1/72 viet Cong and US special forces Italeri figures. I wasn't sure of the shade of olive drab so I've gone with Humbrol 155 Olive Drab Matt and Humbrol 66. Will test both and see which I am happy with. Doing my research to hopefully get the markings correct! Thanks again
  9. Thank you! Everyone seems brilliant so far I'm not usually one for forums but I thought with the bank of knowledge within here I'd be daft not to dip my toe in the waters and tap in to the wealth of ideas and tips available.
  10. Thanks for your reply. I have been looking and I think my options are to get a couple different ones, such as a OH-58 Kiowa one, a blackhawk one and maybe a generic USAF numbers and letters set. I think this project will be the most challenging one yet! Can't wait to get started. I love the Huey and want to do it justice.
  11. Thank you! I was hoping to see some after market decal sheets but it seems like there isn't much out there. I've contacted Werner's wings too see if he does any options. Hoping someone somewhere can help!
  12. Thank you buddy. From an overcast Wolverhampton! I just figure if I am going "outside the box" best to consult the experts on this. I love model making and enjoy the mindful aspect. I have dabbled with a few kits but fancy getting stuck back into this great hobby.
  13. Hello all, I recently brought this kit with a view to making as Vietnam conversion diorama. I've managed to find some crew figures and some mounted M60s. I am really struggling to find any decals for the Air Cav 1/9th Vietnam era. Can anyone help? I have seen a few, but none of them are what I'm after, I contacted the chap from. Fireball model works but he said he no longer does 1/72 Heli stuff. Any help would be great, it's my first go at trying to make something that's not what it's intended to be. Thank for any help or advice on
  14. Hello everyone, Got into this awesome hobby a year or so ago, put together a few Airfix models, but looking to start getting more into building and signed up to seek the experts advice! Thanks in advance Mr F
