    Vol 2 All the Spitfire questions here

    Hello I have a question which probably has been asked before, yet so far I haven't found the answer. What's the fuselage length of Spitfire Mk. V, but without prop? Can be dimensions with rudder. Thank you for any help. Have a nice day Dominik

    IJN Underside gray green

    When I built an A6M5 model which presents plane made by Nakajima I used XF-12. The one in Mitsubishi camo I used XF-76. But when I build early Zeros I use the mix of RLM02 anf Hemp (1-1 ratio).
  3. Dear Fellow Modellers I have a question. I'm planning to build a few tropical Hurricanes Mk. I. For the beginning I'd like to build some Hurris from East Africa. And the questions are. .. Are there any photos that confirm that Bob Kershaw flew Hurricane with J code letter? The only photo I've seen shows Hurri with U letter. The second question. According to Dust Clouds in the Middle East Capt. Frost had to make force landing in Hurricane with letter W. In the book there is a photo of this plane but its very dark and unclear. Does anyone have better quality of this photo with code and serials visible? Thank you for any help. Dominik

    92 Squadron BoB decals

    Very interesting topic indeed. As it is known the Cobras changed code letters from GR to QJ somewhere in June/July period. But there have always been a problem with shapes of code letters, especially G during GR period. But as we are discussing the BoB period I have theory. It's taken for granted by many decal makers that Q looked same as in QJ-B, so a kind of generic font. But when you look at Havecroft's QJ-P the "hook" has different shape. So theory goes that those Spits which survived Dunkirk had Q letters painted by the same hand as G in GR code. The "generic" Q appeared with replacement aircraft. But, so far there are only Havercroft's photos where we can see these unusual Q letters. On the other hand Allan Wright's Spit from Pembrey had unusual finflash. I hope one day we'll see more Pembrey period photos of Spitfires used by the Cobras. Cheers

    1/72 Zeros - Tamiya vs FineMolds' shape

    Actually, A6M2 from FM is very good model. Although I love Tamiya's products, I wish FM release theirs as regular box kit. Just to compare. As for FMs A6M5 I've also heard that there are some shape issues.

    Dark Green/Dark Earth camouflage implementing date

    Sorry everyone for late reply. Great Thank You everyone for your help.
  8. Hi Thanks for help. Tony these are the photos I was looking for. I've noticed one more thing. White in finflashes are wider on two of these Hurries. As I don't know much about Hurricanes can you tell me whether these are ragwings or tinwings?
  9. Good morning All All the best in New Year. Some time ago I saw on this Forum a few colour photos of Hurricanes Mk.I used by No 601 squadron with beautiful Flying Sword painted on the lower engine cowling. Unfortunately me and Uncle Google don't like each other and we don't cooperate well. Can anyone post this photos in this thread or just put a link to that discussion. I will be very grateful for help. Cheers! Dominik
  10. It's really annoying when I see Latvian and Finnish pre-war national insygnia broken into zyllion. They were not connected to Adolf and co. This political correctness is sick. Svastikas were used long before nazis. Wonder if anyone ever said to Buddhists and Hinduists that they have been nazis for hundreds of years.

    1/72 Kawasaki Ki-61 Hien (Tony) by Tamiya

    What's wrong with Aoshima's... Hmm, it's not Tamiya's Now I only wish more Royal Scale news from Tamiya, for example D. 520 and Mustang B/C... Oh and Spitfires Mk. VIII to XVI and with Griffon engines.
  12. Hi again. This question has been probably asked several time before and I wouldn't normally ask it but I have a problem. I'm trying to figure it out when was White-Night recognision pattern introduced. Some time ago I found information that it was somewhere around March/April 1938. But last weekend I read that it was January 1939. So what's the correct date. If this issue has been discussed before, could you please put some links in this thread? Thank you very much Dominik

    Dark Green/Dark Earth camouflage implementing date

    Thank you Hepster. Cheers
  14. Hello! I was wondering if you could help me with one issue. What was exact date (for example Signal date) of implementing Temperate Scheme? Was it during the Munich Crisis or earlier? Unfortunately my knowledge base in this matter is very, very poor. I only know that all "Silver Wings" were camouflaged during that crisis (but I'm not sure if it hadn't been done earlier). Thank you in advance for your help. Cheers! Dominik
  15. Sorry, but I don't buy these 'rivets'. These are holes, not rivets.
