  1. Thank you, Giampiero. Question resolved.
  2. Perusing the instructions on my Sword Re 2002 I was struck by the yellow tips on the propeller. On going through the Wiki images I'll go along with this but the early 1940 vintage images of e.g Fiat G 50 do not show these. I don't think it is an individual manufacturer's foible so the question is - is there a timeline? When did the changeover from a practice similar to the U,S. to one more like that of the U,K. take place? It seems to be evident before the 1943 surrender.
  3. Shouldn't there be a cowling machine gun on the TBF-1? Can't see one.
  4. Both the HiPlanes (sized for Airfix in the blurb) and the AML one are certainly smaller in span
  5. Yes, thank you. Was aware of the port inner.
  6. Is there any noticeable difference between the engine nacelles of these 2 marks? Thinking of tinkering with the Airfix MK. III. Got lots of aftermarket for the Italeri Mk. I.
  7. Not saying anything till see the price. I remember all those people who were enthusiastic about the Kalinin K-7. Still Vaclav appears confident with 5 boxings spread out over the years.
  8. Don't tell me it's supposed to be Boffer or Buffer.

    Mosquito J 30?

    Reason I asked is that I unearthed the old Airfix 1/72 mk.xix /j.30 (part assembled) recently. Give or take a canopy I can't see much difference in the fuselages of the Airfix xix and the Tamiya xvii (both Bullnose}

    Mosquito J 30?

    If I take a Tamiya Mosquito NF XIII/XVII fuselage and wings and replace the three blade props with Maestro four-bladers will I have a Swedish J 30? Apologies for not placing this in Cold War.
  11. Think I'll go humbrol 147. Thanks all.
