  1. Yes the mortar version does look more neatly painted. I'm painting the stripes by hand and not masking them so the rough finish makes things easier. Unfortunately I can't post photo's at the moment but as you 'll probably imagine I'm lining up the wing stripes with the fuselage ones going in one direction but I'm not sure what to do with the other side of the tailplane and rear wings. I've obviously painted the side we can see as it is but the other side is trickier than the main wings.
  2. Is this the SH kit in Azur packaging? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Frrom-Azur-1-72-Dassault-Super-Mystere-B-2-Late-FR036/372708048381?hash=item56c7217dfd:g:zA0AAOSwPn1dJHxD
  3. Those stripes look a bit roughly and unevenly painted to me especially on Sinners 2nd machine. Is that correct or photographic distortion?
  4. Interesting. That could well be the case as it does look quite dark. I've changed my mind now and I think I'll probably do his 2nd machine as that one photo of the whole left side of his machine shows more than the photo's of his 1st machine. Plus I didn't add the front cannons so it makes it hopefully easier.
  5. I don't think that top photo is his machine. It looks to me like it only has 2 stripes and maybe a mottled tail.
  6. I think unless it was repainted at some point that photo showing the right hand side must be a 3rd aircraft. It can't be the 1st machine as far as I can see and if it's his 2nd machine I'm surprised that the nose has a much thinner line whereas the photo of his 2nd machine looks like the nose is covered in dark green. It would be odd to have the left nose dark green then form into a much thinner line.
  7. Cheers for that! Very informative. One thing on that chart that surprises me is the dark green. Not nearly as dark as I thought it would be. The Tamiya dark green I've used is more like black green. It does look more accurate to the photo's of Sinners aircraft though so maybe Sinners aircraft did use black green and light green instead of dark green stripes? I've started painting Sinners 1sr machine so maybe I'll just finish it but do the tail without the mottled effect (which Tamiya seems to have made up.
  8. I wish I'd started doing Sinners 2nd machine now. I started the first machine (I've already painted the stripes) as again I thought Tamiya had it correct and there were more photo's etc of it......but the 2nd machine probably has better reference as we can see all the fuselage. Plus for some reason a while back I didn't add the mortars. Tamiya's instructions say to paint it light green AS23 https://www.modelsport.co.uk/index.php?product_id=427580&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIkYH359HM4wIVyLTtCh04hgzIEAYYASABEgLl__D_BwE and dark green AS24 for the stripes. https://www.tamiyausa.com/shop/spray-aircraft/as-24-dark-green-german-air/ Do you know if those colours are correct? In my Scale Aircraft Modelling issue Nov 2017 there's a feature on Luftwaffe colours. There's a chart and it shows light green as RLM 82 RAL 6003 and dark green as RLM 83. Both of those colours in SAM look wrong to me. The light green looks way too greyish and dark and the dark green looks too brownish and light, whereas there's also a diagram of RLM 82 B567 bright green which looks more like Tamiya's light green.
  9. Thanks and great info. As usual what I thought would be straightforward (as I thought Tamiya had done their homework) isn't so straightforward. I should've checked first. I was going to do the second aircraft but because I couldn't find any phpto's of the right side of the aircraft I wasn't sure how to do the stripes/camouflage etc (hence me doing Tamiya's version). I'm wondering whether to scrap this scheme now and do another one. Another simple more documented scheme though that doesn't require an airbrush and a scheme that has the white Hakenkreuz.
  10. You're welcome and I must have a nose around there too. It was almost called the Dougal Z Cargomaster after a mix of Dougals black protruberence and Zeberdy's conc.
  11. I'm building Tamiya's 1/48 kit and doing Rudolf Sinners aircraft but I can't find many black and white original photo's to check if Tamiya got the scheme correct apart from these few photo's ........... https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/airfixtributeforum/tamiya-1-48-messerschmitt-me-262a-1a-61087-t28402.html https://forum.warthunder.com/index.php?/topic/348364-new-modifications-me-262-a-1-with-rockets-21-cm-wgr-21/ I especially want to find photio's of Sinners first Green 1 aircraft (the one in Tamiyas instructions) to see if they've got the tail markings correct. I can only find the above photo's which don't show the tail area like this one..... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v285/themixmonkey/Models/1303670335_rr_262.jpg The one with the white swastika is Sinners later aircraft (the non Tamiya scheme) where the dark green stripes point backwards. https://www.asisbiz.com/il2/Me-262/JG7/pages/Messerschmitt-Me-262A1a-Stab-III.JG7-((+I-Blue-1-Rudolf-Sinner-Parchim-Mar-1945-01.html
  12. Here's where it's designers got their inspiratiopn........ https://firebreathingdimetrodon.wordpress.com/tag/the-magic-roundabout/
  13. Does it look like they could dp those versions with the parts layout?
  14. I hope they do the Libyan camouflage version too.
