  1. The best one, and easy to build are Tamiya's. I know what I'm saying - have already build eight. Am building A6M2 Model 11 from Fine Molds and it's very good. and more detailed in places. But for young modeller I'd go for Tamiya's. No fit issues.
  2. It's has probably been already discussed but can you tell when two-level rudder pedals were introduced? A.Price said in his two books that they were used during the BoB. It that correct?
  3. It would be completely fantastic if Fündecals release next parts covering early Spitfires, more early war Spitfires Mk. I and further Marks. One set a year would be great, even if smaller tan part 2 (that must have been costly). Returning to No 92 squadron, it was N3250. I've checked in their ORB.
  4. You are right.According to one book it should be N3250. (and such aircraft was allocated to No 92 Sqn). The problem is that this preliminary profile has other errors - wrong size and shape of code and indyvidual letters. I have already posted photos on Czech forum wher VS answers quaestions. Hope they will corrct the mistake.
  5. Having access to original paint chips it would be reasonable to make such paints. For example AK could have done it but haven't. There is one more option for French colours - Hataka make them...Unless AK decides that they are worth making. However, I strongly doubt it.
  6. The instruction says that LO-G should have "cheese cutters". I looked at the photo of that plane and couldn't see any signs of them. I know that the wires were thin and in the black and white photos are sometimes hardly visible, yet there should have been the fuselage "plugs" visible. I might be wrong but according to to the info founf on BM Supermarine implemented IFF Mk.II in December 1940. However, as the device was ready earlier it might have been introduced late autumn. The other thing is that, IMHO, some of suggested planes should have hydraulic undercarriage selector as, according to information found on this forum, it was probably introduced on April 1940 (although I've read somewhere information that the selector was changed after 175 aircraft built). Good evidence is the film about the daily check in No 609 squadron showing a Spitfire with pre-June 6th 1940 undersurfaces with hydraulic selector. And I think that a position of gunsight replacement bulbs can also be a good evidence of hydraulic selector. Just a short note at the end. I might be wrong with all above theories. And if someone points out my mistakes and shows evidence I'll humbly accept that I'm wrong. And I really hope that all mentioned issues with plastic found will be cured before official release in August.
  7. Correct me if I'm wrong, but do I see 3 pilot seats? And what about 5 canopies? One very early (flat), one middle type (flat sides and rised above pilot head) and late one (Malcolm hood)...What about two others? I understand for props include Watts, DeHavilland, early Rotol (Mk.II and some Mk.I and V) and the fourth one? Late Rotol or deHavilland Hydromatic typical for Mk.Vs?
  8. In their Leaflet Eduard have shown painting options - some are interesting, some are boring. There will also be a a bressin figure of this bl**** Trenchardist and the cause of death of hundreds of brave pilots - D. Bader. I'd rather see Sailor Malan, Roger Bushell, Robert Stanford Tuck, Eric Lock, Paddy Finucane, Alan Deere, David Crook...When I think of Bader I connect him with Hurricanes not Spitfires.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Yup, they have. The one in Cosford, which received them after being withdrawn from the frontline service
  12. Graham, so should I understand that the HA Scheme was painted in MUs?
  13. Most probably GZ-M, although I have decals for GZ-N.
