  1. I know but I'm talking about detail wise. I haven't got round to getting the Airfix kit yet but I've built a few Special Hobby 1/72 Vamps and have one AZ Vamp too.
  2. Yes the plane's I'm doing are from 1937/38.
  3. Building AMG's Me109 B1 and even though I've pretty much finished the cockpit off I'm still not sure what colour the instrument panel should be. I'm fairly sure it should be grey but a light, medium or darker grey (1937/38)?
  4. I'd be interested to know what you guys think of my conclusions. Am I correct, wrong, partially correct, have I missed something or are you not sure etc.
  5. I'd like them to do an R100 airship too.
  6. Interesting. So it looks like we either stick with the provided muzzle or get a donor kit such as an M26. I'll probably stick with the kit muzzle though as it looks a bit similar anyway. One other thing I noticed is none of the tanks in the film appear to have the turret machine guns. Just the mount.
  7. Movie vehicle replica's seem to have grown in popularity over the past few years. As for the muzzle brakes yes I noticed the same thing. I think the closest to the ones in the film are parts G53 and G54 in the Takom kit. The other ones don't look to me like the ones in the film at all. here's a good shot of the movie muzzle........ https://www.google.com/search?q=m47+++battle+of+the+bulge&hl=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjVvKTbmOD1AhWvgVwKHdOLBVQQ_AUoAXoECAEQAw&biw=1024&bih=612&dpr=1#imgrc=rGkTC2tcqvl_xM
  8. I was hoping they were all metal but looks like I'll have to paint over the metal finish I sprayed. Probably paint the rubber parts a very dark grey then add mud etc.
  9. These tracks from Bronco seem to confirm it..... https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/AB3566?result-token=sW47u
  10. I'm building this Takom M47 https://www.themodellingnews.com/2017/07/in-boxed-new-35th-scale-m47-patton-from.html as a Battle of the Bulge movie version. I thought at first they were all metal but now I'm not so sure. In the film they look more metal but it's hard to tell seeing as they're pretty much covered in mud.
  11. Ok just read that article again. It takes me a few attempts sometimes to take all the info in but I think I've got it now. So basically the Tamiya scheme is not accurate but this scheme is probably accurate?......... http://arawasi-wildeagles.blogspot.com/2018/07/nakajima-ki-84-hayate-frank-decals-and_16.html If that is the case though....why did Watanabe do the scheme Tamiya copied in the original article especially as he was a mechanic and a graduate of 15 Shonen along with Naito?
  12. So that model's accurate except for the overall colour which should be olive brown instead of the green and the black anti glare is probably correct?
