  1. What do you mean by that? However, it still will need filling some lines. But yes, it's step forward. Yet, making closed cockpit will be a pain in the bottom again. Tamiya's solution is much better.
  2. Long time ago Vladimir Šulc said that they focus mainly on 48th. It's clearly visible. So far they've released many more models in 48th (from what I remember: Bf 108, Hawker Tempest Mk.V old tool, P-39 Airacobra Family, He 280, Spad VII/XIII, SE 5, Siemens somthing, BF 110 family, Bf 109 E, Bf 109 G " on steroids", new Bf 109G, F and K, old FW 190 A family, new FW 190 family, F6F, Spitfire VIII/IX/XVI, new Tempest Mk.V, AVIA B.534, P-51 Mustang, FW 190 D, MiG-21 family and quite soon we'll get new Spitires Mk.I-V, Tempest Mk.II and Mezek and this Czech trainer aircraft) than in 72nd ( Hellcat, Bf 110, AVIA B.534, MiG-15, MiG-21, Spitfire VIII-XVI, Fokker D.VII and forthcoming some Czech light weight aircraft). I didn't mention some WWI planes in 48th and 72nd cos I don't remember. I remember that VŠ told 2 years ago that small Bf 109G family would be released at the end of 2019 or beginning of this year. So there is a possibility that Eduard release Bf 109F-K family somewhere during this decade but I would rather expect other company do it much faster.
  3. Yup, they have. The one in Cosford, which received them after being withdrawn from the frontline service
  4. Graham, so should I understand that the HA Scheme was painted in MUs?
  5. Most probably GZ-M, although I have decals for GZ-N.
  6. Hello How are you Fellow Modellers? I hope you are fine. I've got two quick qustions. Currently I'm bulding a Spitfire VIII from No 32 squadron and I have a problem with the camouflage. Was High Altitude factory painted or at MUs or in squadrons? If in MUs/units were stencils painted again or there was no sense/time to do it? And yes, I've tried to find this information on the Net and Forum, but uncle goolge hasn't been very helpful. Cheers and take care Dominik
  7. And the first made this year. Wonderful new tool Spitfire Mk.I from Tamiya. Decals - Illiad Design. Paints - Gunze C and H and Tamiya. Cheers Dominik
  8. Hi Everybody My second kit finished last Wednesday. Kit is wonderful Tamiya. Code letters from Cut then Add. Small decals Tamiya. Paints Gunze C, H, Tamiya and AK Real Air. Cheers
  9. As there were at least two types of de Havilland props used on Spitfires Mk.Vc (at least I've seen two - the one also used on Mk.I and the other, Hydromatic I think, used on Spits Vc in MTO and Australia (yet thre might have been more types) I really doubt Airfix will do anything with it. I would require designing new parts. On the other hand, the pilot seat also looks strange. The cannon barels installation looks unusual. And generally parts look a bit thick. One more thing - I wonder what's their idea for undercarriage installation. I only hope it won't be as weird as in 48th Spits I and V.
  10. V. Šulc mentioned these boxings at the beginning of the year in Eduard Info. IIRC they were supposed to be released last year but as Eduard focused on 1/48 Tempests, Messerschmitts and Mustangs Fokker was moved to this year. This year, in 1/72, we are going to see only Fokker, another boxing of Spitfire Mk.VIII and MiG-21, so nothing new as these kits had been designed previous years. It sound like 72nd de-evolultion.
  11. Honestly I don't think Airfix will release Spitfire Mk.Vb in forseable future...It's against their policy. I only hope they've improved their QC and there won't be any issues like with Buccaneer. Only this strange oil cooler shape...I can't recollect any photos with such coolers...
  12. I have a question about Spitfire Mk.Vb/c oil cooler shape. I always thought that I know it but quite recently Airfix have shown their new Spit Vc 3D renders and the shape ot their oil cooler is quite interesting. Especially its aft part with some kind of wide opening. Is there something I didn't know before?
  13. What's wrong with the shape of oil cooler? https://www.airfix.com/uk-en/shop/new-for-2020/spitfire-mkvc.html Did it have any flaps?
  14. You forgot about Weekend Spitfire Mk.VIII in 1/72. Except Spitfire Mk.I in 48th (not my usual scale...yet), nothing interesting. I was hoping to, finally, see Messerschmitts 109 F and G in 72nd but it seems that we will have to wait till...2121.
