  1. What if it's not a pack of cigarettes, but a first aid pouch, U.S. paratroops carried first aid packs on their helmets during W.W.II, it's just a thought on my part, either way it is a terrific build.
  2. Fantastic job mate, but why re paint the commander figure he looks great. Regards, Robert
  3. Thank you for that, i think you are right about the guy in the black trousers/pants, he is standing in the space right where i would like to see pictures of, the rear facing gunners bay. From looking at the cutaway drawings, it seems the walkway is on the port side of the aircraft only as it goes through the bomb bay area, therefore it seems unlikely that there would be two openings from this bulkhead section, i may be wrong about this, hopefully some kind soul will put some pictures on this thead of the said bulkhead clearly showing it from the gunners bay. Many thanks,
  4. Interesting pictures, but sadly still none from the dordal gun bay showing the bulkhead wall directly infront of the bomb bay. Many thanks, Rob
  5. Nice pictures again, but i still need to see the bulkhead wall section directly infront of the bomb bay area, but viewed from the rear of the cockpit ( viewed from the cockpits rear gun bay area ). So if anyone has any pictures of this view, then please share them here. Is there a cabin door leading to the bomb bay area or just an open walkway straight through the bomb bay area and down the plane's fusilage? Many thanks, Rob´╗┐

  7. Nice pictures rudolf, Now does anyone have any pictures showing the bulkhead inside of the rear cockpit/gun bay directly infront of the bomb bay? Many thanks, Rob
  8. Hi Chris, Thanks for that info mate. Regards, Rob
  9. Ok, i have studied the diagrams , does anyone have ay pictures of the exterior bomb bay doors ( are the large openers or small individual openers) and also a picture of the gun bay area of the rear of the cabin showing the bulkhead infront of the bomb bay area. Many thanks, Rob
  10. Nice one, i think that answers that! Many thanks, Rob
  11. Hi does anyone know if the Savoia Marchetti SM.79 Sparviero had a bomb bay or were the bombs located under the fusilage like on the torpedo varants? Does anyone possess any pictures to share? Many thanks, Rob

    Hi, back to the subject of the model kit, has anyone got a picture of the box art they could load onto this thread, as i am curious to see it and might buy it for my own son to build. Many thanks, Rob
  13. Hi, This may not be relevant to your chosen colour scheme, but while i was visiting RAF Cosford last year, i saw a couple of pictures of a He111z in a book in the gift shop which showed one in white winter camo presumably somewhere on the eastern front. Also they have a built model section and they had an Italeri He111z on show and that was in white with green camo, i don't know how accurate the model kit was but the photo's in the book prove that this scheme was used operationally at least. This aircraft type probably only had an operational lifespan of 2-3 years, so the colour schemes ma
  14. Hi, I always liked the old Airfix H20 version as a kid, i have since gone right off it, i bought the Frog one later on and the Italeri kit to compare them against each other, as i remember they were both nice easy builds, the italeri He111 was the recognised by many as the best He111 on the model market until the Hasegawa kit came out, and shortly afterwards Revell released their (Hasegawa tooled) version at a much cheaper price, and now all eyes seem to be on Airfix in anticipation of their new release, which is expected to be the "dogs wotsits" if you know what i mean. Coming from Airfix, i
