  1. they look great! Fantastic bit of PR for the new kit - but I wish someone would re-release that post-war Mossie decal sheet Colin!
  2. excellent - how do we buy? Gonna be a bit fragile in the post perhaps
  3. Picked one up in a charity shop for a tenner a while back - which given the ebay prices can't happen too often. Needless to say as an 'assembler' I haven't done anything with it.
  4. ..at the time there was a suggestion that there was a 'green 2' underneath the greyhound, so an unusual machine wearing a combination of Geschwader and Gruppe markings if that is the case.
  5. Posted a few years ago in fact (around 2010). Robert Forsyth used it in his Osprey JG 7 book
  6. Planned to start on 11 October - first episode broadcast (again?) on 8/11. Airfix designer Paramjit tackles a new Spitfire in the first episode and next Monday night (15/11) the series focuses on the design of the new 72nd Mossie..channel 26 on Freeview. Also on UKTV Play on catch-up
  7. yes, well done. Not the easiest kit, difficulty level 4 out of 5
  8. Dettol removes paint does it ? putting a model in a freezer helps with the disassembly process ? You learn something every day here ..
  9. Recently released, as war films go this one is actually pretty good. Anyone else seen it yet ?
  10. ..currently struggling with one of these.....you did well!
  11. ..should be available in the US at $13 - I appreciate that is not Brazil..sorry
  12. As above. Does anyone who follows these sorts of things have an inkling of when the first aircraft will arrive at Lakenheath?
  13. That's pretty much all that the AJ article says on the subject too
  14. yep, 100% ..and when you've finished it, the Sky Atlantic re-make of Das Boot is excellent too!
  15. A little heads-up - and thanks to Mike for his OK to post this here - for a new bookazine coming out next week through Mortons. It will be on sale in Smiths and Tescos I'm told (in the UK) as well as the usual aviation bookshop(s). 130 pages, 200 illustrations. A selection of stories from some less well-known Gruppen and Geschwader including pilot profile/unit history- type features. Book 1 features mostly 109s, Book 2 (all being well) is the Fw 190 volume - although other types are covered in both.
  16. ..as pointed out by 'seawinder', Farbton 74 is Graugrün (grey-green), Farbton 75 is Grauviolett and Farbton 76 Lichtblau....as for your last sentence, here's a piece of horizontal stabiliser from a JG 1 Fw 190 pulled out the ground in Normandy - 40 years after crashing.. the bits that aren't 'light grey' look very green to me.. more so on the Fw than the Me
  17. II./JG 1 ace Ehlers claimed his 15th victory on 19 June 1942. His 6. Staffel comrade Uffz. Brakebusch was shot down and the loss details were recorded as Fw 190 A-2 WNr. 0285 'ge. 9+ -' (ie yellow 9 + bar). Not Ehlers machine of course but close
  18. me neither. However it is a beautiful day here in the south-east and in among the many Spitfire & a couple of Hurricane overflights (Battle of Britain memorial, Capel-le-Ferne) the Swedish De Havilland DH.80A Puss Moth SE-AFH flew in across the Channel at low altitude passing right over the back garden - heading for Dx ?
  19. interesting machine. Never dropped a torpedo in anger - but Laté 298s of escadrille T3 were deployed against German armour around Boulogne during late May 1940
  20. very nicely done! Kit doesn't come with the option to deploy flaps does it?
  21. ..an evening of the Stones on Sky Arts (freeview)
