  1. Their A6M2a (aka A6M2 Model 11 aka Reisen 11) is actually their A6M2b (aka Model 21, aka Reisen 21) with changed canopy. The prototype has some new parts (fuselage, engine and cowling) and some old.
  2. As I wrote earlier in other topic, I'm not sure the "B" wings are correct for all Mk.V. For early, yes. For late, don't know, rather not. Except for early Spitfires Mk.V (after changing from Mk.I), I haven't seen Spitfires Mk.Vb with the same bulges as given in the "Tally Ho!" box. But apart from this, almost all the parts are there. But, I think there should also metal seat option. I once read that Spitfires from Malta received metal seats after plastic ones started cracking during dive bombing. If we talk about bulges: 600d76f642f514b68f425255_SpitfireMkVsamplepages.pdf (webflow.co
  3. Just a quick question about the underwing bulges in cannon armed Spitfires Mk.I and II. Were they the same? The option given by Eduard seems more like Spitfire Mk.I (known from the photos of QJ-S Spitfire Mk.I/V) than Mk.II. I might be wrong, but the Spitfire Mk.II which is in Canada has bulges which look more like those in the colour photo posted in the previous post.
  4. Only the Spitfire Mk.Vbs which were built as Cannon Spitfires Mk.I (the famous photos of Spitfire Mk.V QJ-S). Generally, don't trust Eduard with the information about Spitfires.
  5. As Tamiya is focused on RC models, and ground vehicles I don't think there will be any new aircraft. But I'm sure new tanks, armoured vehicles or racing cars will be there.
  6. I think I saw a photo of Mustandg Mk.III. But probably from Italy or the Balkans. But where did I see it...
  7. I received my Emils (two boxes) yesterday. I'm not a rivet counter but decided to match the kit fuselage to the plans I have (Kagero Monography). I don't know how accurate they are but the kit is a bit too long and some lines and shapes are different. But I think that after building it will look like Emil, so I'll build a few. The pinel lines are nice, much nicer and delicate than in case of P-40E/M/N. The only disadwantage is that we don't find any masks or PE parts, which at that price would be quite nice.
  8. According to Info Eduard, this model will be reboxed as ltd edition by Eduard in 2021.
  9. If I understood correctly, Eduard will release this model too. No dates given so we'll have to wait for their first news in January.
  10. Piotr, No-one wants to take anything from you (maybe apart from your credit card , just joking) but those holes should be called "rivets" not rivets. I wouldn't mind riveting if the rivets on models looked like rivets. As far as I remember, no company has ever made them look like rivets. They are all holes in the surface. I think only one person made them look like the real ones while building FW 190, methinks. So I think we should start call these holes "rivets" not rivets. And as I have said before, de gustibus... I don't like this feature on models, you like them. That's fine
  11. What rivets? I can only see holes on the surface. I know that de gustibus non est disputandum, but lack of these holes doesn't make the model less interesting or more toyish. And I don't think you would see any rivets or panel lines if you scale down the real thing seventy-two times... On the other hand, it's annoying to recreate these "rivets" after correcting some issues or removing seam lines. EDIT. By the way, you can have same or better results without rivets or even panel lines, although the lines are quite helpful
  12. I think that these panels are just dirty. As this aircraft was build after introducing Sky on lower surfaces, replacing only few panels with old ones (black) sounds strange. If look carefully at the panel covered by the roundel you can see same situation. So I think that they are just dirty. There is one more thing. Some say that this plane had lower surfaces painted Sky Blue. For me it sounds strange as it was built at the end of June (first flight 1st July) so I assume that the colour was Sky.
  13. Hi Sorry for refreshing the old meat but I think those panels re not replacements but dirty. Found this photo and it shows dirt. I'm building this plane and was thinking what to do. Now I know...methinks.
  14. It is excellent indeed. Got also other two and they are superb too. And yes, this forum is a great source of information given by experts.
