  1. I just found in Falklands/Malvinas book from Hikoki a mention in chapter for Pucará. They get an order really on 28th April. Well, I will make some more investigation and then decide this point. I think I have some time as I will start to build Mirage this week and camouflage I will make later. I would bet, after finishing my build there will be discovered some colourful nice photo of the plane from 1.st May which will be different from my kit.... as it sometimes happen to me
  2. Cześć / Ahoj / Hello Alex, Thanks a lot for your explanation . Now it makes more sense to me . Some minutes ago I spoke with my friend who has Aztec decals Part 2 (For Daggers). There in the instructions sheet is mentioned that after 1st May when Mirage 019 was shot down by friendly fire, there was order to recognise friendly/foe by yellow IDs for all planes. Then it was realised it is not good and another order to cancel yellow IDs was given around 25 May. So If it is right, I would say, I have to make I-019 or I-015 in basic camouflage. But I will check it with phot
  3. It is really excelent work. I am very inspired to build it too. Please can anybody explain the history of yellow ID marks? I never have seen it on FAA Mirages (not meaning Daggers). I tried to find some informations and get following. The yellow ID was on Mirages later in the war. At the beginning there were brown? ID. At least some photos proves this, but for me it is uncertain if the brown was also used on the wings. I would like to build Mirage (I-015 or 019) shot down on 1.st May, therefore I am not sure about exact colours and locations of ID.
  4. Hello Patrick, I like all Mirage subjects. Finally we get a really nice kits from Modelsvit. Together with very nice camouflage and good modeling job, the result must be awesome. And your result is really awesome!! P.S. It seems that canopy fitting is not too critical. My Mirage IIIB kit is in my friends hands and unfortunatelly I can not pick up it due to covid restrictions. I hope I will get it soon.
  5. Hi all, thanks to all for your comments, Unfortunately I can not remember exact formula as I have used some remainder green colour from other builds which I mixed with the new fresh colours to get right tint. What I can generally say is, it was Tamiya mix of green XF-5 as base with addition blue X14, white, yellow XF-3.
  6. Hello Marcel, Actually I have RS Arado on my desk too and I am really not happy with some things there. Some of them are caused by RS and some by my hands. Well, I am motivated and encouraged now, as I see your build and very good result there
  7. Very clean and nice build Especially colours seems to be very real. I really like it. I would like to build a two seater Hawk in those colours and also I wish to downsize Hobby Boss 1/48 into 1/72 scale as the Airfix is not able to redesign the moulds of its two seater version for many years.
  8. I think, those are typical Airfix kits with their panel lines design. Considering I don´t like rescribing soft or shallow panel lines , I prefer to have deep lines. So from my point of view, very nice builds there and I am inspired to take my Harrier from the stash and build it too
  9. Very nice Mustang, I like Mustangs with non USAF markings I confirm the statement of the kit. The canopy is really trick, especially with the visible pin in rear part. Also I can confirm the point with XTradecals. I found simmilar issues on different sheets as well. Have a nice day.
  10. Thanks to all for comments. Well, despite some imperfections I still consider the Mk I kit on the top and better than many others kits and brands.
  11. Hello all, let me present a recent builds of Arma Hobby´s Hurricanes. The first one is a Hurricane in Portugal colours and it was really a pleasant OOB build. The second one is a most successful Hurricane of 310 Czechoslovak squadron during the BoB with 6 kills claimed by several pilots. The kit is also a part of small group build with my friends dedicated to Bob adversary. I hope you like it. If you are interested in a bit more details and photos, I would appreciate your visit there on my blog http://72insight.com/en/hawker-hurricane-mk-i-and-mk-iic-1-72-arma-hobby/ Here on the blog
  12. John, thank you for answer. I will do it in the same way, therefore I would appreciate if you send me the KGr. 806 insignia if possible. I will print it to decal sheet as well. The rest of the marking I will make by cutting masks I think.
  13. Hello, I like those dual builds with a story Please where can I find the decals for Ju-88 M7+DK of Kgr. 806 ?? I was not sucessfull. The Hurricane DUoB is available by AML decals.
  14. Thanks for explanation, I was not aware of it. Well , I have to study the Hurricane more in detail
  15. Hello Libor, very nice. I see 10 guns instead of 12 guns in the wing? Did I miss something?
  16. Thanks to all for comments. In fact, It is not my original solution. I was very inspired by build found here: https://forum.largescalemodeller.com/topic/2857-132-hasegawa-bf109-g-14-raf-farnborough/
  17. This is a new kit in my small RAFwaffe collection. This BF-109 G14 originally captured together with another 109 in the Netherlands in January 1945 was displayed on Farnborough event in October 1945. After then was probably scrapped. The kit is from Hasegawa dual combo. I made necessary changes to get a right look of this particular plane (e.g. weapons were dismantled). Decals are from Rising Decals sheet named "Under new management". The only missing thing is an inscription on the propeller blade, which was originally made by chalk. I did it by thin brush with moistened AK water chalk fra
  18. Very nice Harrier. Big motivation for me to build it.
  19. Very nice Mig in Laos camouflage. Very smooth and nice finish. I think it is a superb gift. I like Laos Migs and I plan also build one. I am confident Laos Migs were delivered mainly in version bis. I know, it is sometimes difficult to recognize right versions. On Laos Migs, there could help one more point. It is the Polyot flight navigation system (small antenna bellow the inlet).
  20. Hello, I am surprised by that very good result. Really nice.
  21. Nice SU-27 in nice colours = superb . The colour scheme is unknown to me. Please can you suggest, where can I find some photos of that pattern. I like it more than new one.
  22. Hello, first of all, very nice result. Despite I see some little imperfections I really like it Well, it is good to read your comments about the kit, because today I expect a postal package containing Airfix Phantom. You are right with your assessment of panel lines. On the other hand, actually, I have a Fujimy Phantom on my workbench and it needs to be rescribed a bit. The panel lines there are too fine. I would appreciate the panel lines to be something between Airfix and Fujimy So it was a little dilemma which kit to select. In fact, the most reason for Airf
