  1. This! I think we'll have this P-38 in 1/72 at next Spring (same as with recent Bf.109G - announced at February, Nurnberg and released at May).
  2. I only can remember weathered transfers by Fine Molds (on their 1/72 Bf.109F-4 trop)
  3. Maybe this will help you a little https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235047305-ak-interactive-real-colors-acrylic-lacquer-paints/&do=findComment&comment=3209621
  4. Sorry for correction Price for MS.406 was 45 kopeсks (SU Roubles 0,45). NOVO MS.406 (ex-FROG F157) kit (by Moscow "Ogonyok Toy Plant") was my very first kit so it has very special place in my memories. When my Summer school vacations started, my father took me to the Moscow Central Toy Store and bought 2 NOVO MS.406s and WEB Plastikart Tu-144 for me. First MS.406 failed victim of my familiarising process with scale kit building so I was happy what we bought 2 of them.
  5. Skyrider3D, thank you very much for a photo and info! I have Japanese book "Pictorial History of 244th Sentai" with almost all available photos of Kobayashi planes but unfortunately photo of '87' is missed. I agree with you that fuselage stripe on '87' is rather same blue colour as on Tei '62' also from April 1945.
  6. Preparing for the upcoming Tamiya's Ki-61 Tei (1:72) I begun to search for nice decal/profiles. While browsing your illustrations for "Ki-61 and Ki-100 Aces" I found profile #19 Ki-61-I Tei ‘87’, 244th Sentai, Akeno, Japan, April 1945 (see att. pic.) Could you please share the source for this profile? Image source: (с) Google Books
  7. Yes, that's correct scheme. Here are photos: Images (с) https://alchetron.com/Max-Hellmuth-Ostermann-796675-W
  8. Hello Ben, For smart look you can use next Model Air colours: VVS: AMT-11 = ModelAir 71.047 AMT-12 = ModelAir 71.052 French WW2: Dark Brown = ModelAir 71.029 Khaki Green = ModelAir 71.016 Dark Blue Grey = ModelAir 71.047 Light Blue Grey = ModelAir 71.046

  12. JWM, great work and nice kit! I still remember those late 80s / early 90s vacu kits. To be honest I even tried few of them (vacu-copy of Matchbox Bf.110) but I quickly recognised what vacu kits are not for such amateurs as me So big kudos to you for hard work! I also like to choose schemes with some history or story behind them - for example, not a plain generic 109E, but 109E of von Wierra and so on. In this case we are able to tell more interesting facts about our kits collections. It seems to me what you have similar point of view so now you have another great kit and story about it on your shelf!
