    Bf 109G14 1/48 Eduard

    Looks very good there like the restrained weathering. Well done.
  2. Thanks for in-depth review Basilisk. Very informative. Two things to note the umbrella mounts should only be there for the G-5 and not any of the ones your modelling. Secondly as an aircraft engineer we do our best to mill down or cover up the rivets and even if they show after manufacture as soon as the paint is applied you loose majority of rivet definition and that is in real size let alone scaled down to 1/48.

    Sorry for the delay. The bubble window was only there till 1991 after that that area was modified to have a chaff dispenser fitted, so no window. As for the Mk2 I am not sure, I can ask someone in work if you wish?
  4. I shall be on the purchase list with this one, just need to find some time in my build schedule. Looking forward to it. Oh what times we live in with just about every major Russian subject being produced excellent. Still waiting for the KH Su-34?

    Why are some Su-35 tailplanes painted, and some not?

    Thanks for all this info chaps. By the way I am doing the second prototype 902 and have found that there are four colours on her. Upper surface dark blue, medium sea grey and a off white. However underside is in dark blue, light gull gray 16640 and the off white. Just for info as the KH instructions are wrong and with slightly incorrect patterns you must check the available pictures online to get them correct.

    RAF100 special tails. Don't get excited. No, really.

    Nice thread there. Just one or two things to point out. As someone who has been responsible for getting a special scheme applied to a RAF aircraft recently I do have some insight. Each Aircraft are very valuable assets that need to earn its keep for the country. Each and every one of the special schemes require a Mod leftlet to be raised, this could take up to a month to complete and sign off. Yes painting has gone to station civilian contractors, most are ex RAF anyway. There time has to be accounted for as well. Finally moral in the Royal Air Force(not crabs, that’s like swearing) is at a quite low point, with personal only get the government 1% pay rise. After all who gives a dam about some extra markings on the side of the fuselage. You as a modeller may do, but there is not many a service man is that interested.
