  1. Does anyone know if the Italeri Short Stirling Mk. IV tug/paratroop version can be built as the Short Stirling Mk. I bomber version? At the moment the bomber kit is not in production and I'm just wondering if the Mk. IV kit is the same kit with an extra sprue and parts for that particular version or is it a completely different kit with only certain large components involved with many of the bomber version parts not included. Any information would be appreciated. Cheers.
  2. But ,alas, not in NWE from D-Day to VE Day. IIRC I think the 4th Armoured Division were the only Division to camouflage their AFVs and anything else was down to individual preference of the actual tank crews.
  3. I'm not really pushed about accuracy but I do like variety on my models. This is why US AFVs and softskins done in good old US number 9 Olive Drab drive me to drink. At least the British and Germans knew what camouflage was.
  4. Hello again fellow moddlers. I have another query regarding British AFVs. Was there a disruptive pattern applied with/over SCC 15 to British late war tanks i.e. from D-Day to VE Day? I have read the maafv and mtp 20 but they are unclear about this timeframe.
  5. Cheers folks. So US olive drab for the FF Heller M4. Straightforward enough.
  6. Would lend lease M4s supplied to Free French forces remain in US olive drab or would they be repainted in SCC 15 or a French equivalent? I would imagine that French specific tank paint would be close to the bottom of the list of material supplied to Free French forces but would their M4s be repainted at the same time as the British M4s?
  7. Just realised this should be in the AFV forum.
  8. Another query. Would lend lease M4s supplied to Free French forces remain in US olive drab or would they be repainted in SCC 15 or a French equivalent? I would imagine paint for tanks would have been close to the bottom of the list of material supplied to Free French forces but would they be repainted at the same time as British M4s?
  9. Thank you. Very much appreciated. That's my chatroom paranoia kicking in. In the early days of the internet I made a comment in a chatroom that was taken out of context leading to much wailing and gnashing of teeth .
  10. Black Knight. I apologise if I caused offence. I assure you none was intended. I have reread my post and I can see how it may have caused such. It comes across as a statement of fact but that was not my intention. Perhaps a better turn of phrase might have been " could it not be beyond the realms of possibility " and also posed as a question and not the high handed statement it reads as. Again, my deepest apologies if any offence was caused.
  11. Accuracy would be preferred over personal feelings. Would it be fair to say SCC 2 with SCC 1a Mickey Mouse be more accurate for the Tilly in 1944?
  12. I've seen other posts mention that repaints would only be done if and when major overhauls took place and as wear and tear on support vehicles would be a lot less than front line vehicles it is not beyond the realms of possibility that a Tilly could last until 1944 in pre war RAF blue grey. I have found no evidence to prove or disprove this.
  13. Currently modelling the 1/72 Airfix Bomber Re-supply kit. Just a quick inquiry regarding colours. As I want a bit of variety I'm thinking the RAF Tilly in RAF blue grey, the Bedford in SCC 15 with SCC 14 Mickey Mouse pattern, the David Brown tractor in G3 with G5 disruptive pattern, the Bowser in SCC 2 with SCC 1a Mickey Mouse disruptive pattern, the cookie bomb trolley in SCC 15 and the other two bomb trolleys in RAF blue grey and G3. Would these colours be present on the same airfield and the same time (1944)? I've searched online and I cannot get a definitive answer. However, just because
  14. Hello fellow modellers. Keith is the name. I'm from Ireland. New member but making models for years. Due to lockdown I have recently got back into it. I'm almost exclusively 1/72 with a handful of 1/350 ships, 1/24 trucks and the usual assortment of 1/76 Airfix and Matchbox bought over 20 years ago before 1/72 became more popular.
