  1. Just saw this thread. The Monografie Lotnicze publication has plans with rivets depicted. If You do not have it, drop me Your e-mail in the PM, and I'll send You a scan of the drawings. Regards, Aleksandar
  2. If You are referring to small panels running perpendicular to the wingspan (in the direction of airflow), they look like they should be panels - judging from the photo below:
  3. If You know someone who works at a nail salon, You can ask them to put those under a nail-curing UV lamp. A couple hours should have the same effect as a couple of days in the sun.
  4. Being keen keen on the same camouflage on my future model, I've already went through the inter-webs, and found no definitive proof what was the light color (or colors) used. I've even come across RLM 77 being mentioned as a possibility! Having said that, and the period in question being the very end of the war, I lean towards the only logical conclusion - lighter color(s) was/were NOT standardized across all Ar234 units (keep in mind that bomber and recce units were separate)... On the few usable photos I have, it seems sprayed at the front by free-hand, the lighter
  5. Don't forget the F Mk.Vc Trop (JK808) on permanent display at Belgrade Museum of Aviation source: http://www.aviationmuseum.eu/
  6. I love the small tweezer. Insures no metal ones damage the softer resin
  7. I've checked my references, and there is a factory painting scheme. However, it does not show the rudder inner sides... This is probably the reason ICM chose not to provide those, too.
  8. Maybe those in the museum bird are dummy gun barrels, mounted in the way most convenient to the personnel?
  9. Thanks for the info! Never knew there was a sand filter as a variation on these.
  10. Indeed, another restored Havoc (especially if it's an early one) would certainly be a welcome sight.
  11. Hello, I often see this aircraft depicted in British two-color cammo as a base behind the sand blotches. Such as here on the old Revell box-art: Or here in FCM decals set No. 72045 source: Hannants I have always found this odd, as other aircraft of 47th BG in Tunisia '43 (mostly A-20Bs turned up in photos so far) have a standard Olive Drab upper surface as a base... What are your opinions on this aircraft's cammo? Did it exist at all? Thanks
  12. Could anyone use a snapshot program (like Lightshot) and post the screenshot here for illustrative purposes?

    Unfortunately, the photos I posted are nearly a decade old, and I no longer have the Academy kit to make a finer assessment. Traded mine for a Brengun mould long time ago, which does fit to these plans, found in Warpaint publication, drawn by D. Howley and based on A. Bentley drawings, almost perfectly (much better than Academy). Regards, Aleksandar

    To me, the entire Academy nose (also the vertical fin) look a bit under-nourished (provided You align the cockpit opening with the plans)
  15. Larger markings, especially national ones, would typically be avoided during application of white. You can notice this in photos by rough edges and patches of remaining underlying cammo around the stars. Smaller markings (i.e. stencils), and sometimes even the tactical numbers, were more likely to be over-painted in a haste.
