  1. Sounds like the model companies putting the rocket launchers in P-47 and P-51 kits, where the subject didn't use them! I'm pretty sure some He111's did carry a couple of SC1000's for ops, they should be capable given that they lifted 2 torps but I might be wrong. Got me thinking that I should probably find a decent book on the He111 now. thanks Mike
  2. Your right on the Desert Camou one, it is that machine - might do it as a kind of 'what if' and show what a Desert camouflage ones looks like with bombs. I believe once you know how things were, you can make an informed decision about a model. If I make it with bombs, at least I can tell people this exact aircraft wasn't used as a bomber but I've chosen to depict it that way. I actually thought there might be some use in the nose mounted cannon, for keeping AA gunner's heads down if nothing else. Thanks for the answers, they have been very helpful! thanks Mike
  3. I think the large bomb is an SC1000 but I might be wrong. Airfix tell you to put two bomb racks on the model but only one bomb. I might use some modeller's licence and depict one of them with a cannon, just for an extra difference in the models. thanks Mike
  4. Thanks Graham - That means I could use either kit for the Desert Camouflage option then. The Torpedo bomber is one from Sicily in regular bomber camouflage but with a Black underside. thanks Mike
  5. I now have both the Revell (ex Hasegawa) and Airfix He111H-6. I plan to use the Airfix Decals and make one as a Torpedo Bomber and the other as the 'Desert camouflage' option, so I've got a few questions before I think about starting them. 1) Was there any external differences between a regular He111H-6 and the one in Desert camou? As I can't see any tropical filters or anything in the Airfix instructions. 2) The Airfix kits tells you to only use 1 big bomb but there's two racks - Did the Desert Camou one ever use two large bombs or just the one like Airfix says? 3) Defensive armament. The Revell kit has a MG FF cannon in the nose, the Airfix one just has MG 15's in all positions. Did the torpedo bombers and Desert Camou ones ever have the MG FF cannon fitted? thanks Mike
  6. Nah, it's all sorted, I found Kingkit had the one with proper markings in it. thanks Mike
  7. No wonder I didn't see it for sale there, they can't spell Heinkel! I got the Motorhead one for a bit less when you consider the postage. thanks Mike
  8. Just a quick question - do all the boxes of Airfix's Motorhead He111 come with the original kit decals and painting/marking guide? I'd like to build the Tropical and Torpedo Bomber versions but obviously the regular boxing is very difficult to find. thanks Mike
  9. Thanks Steve! We'll certainly be stocking this Wildcat kit, we stock the Arma Hurricanes and Yaks and this looks like another awesome kit from Arma Hobby. thanks Mike
  10. Very much appreciated! I don't know how the postal service and customs are over there - hopefully there won't be many delays due to the current world situation. thanks Mike
  11. Airmails appear to be working more or less as normal from the UK. thanks Mike
  12. The problem it will have it's Flyhawk's HMS Kelly, which is miles better thanks Mike
  13. Excellent! The Fujimi D4Y4 isn't that accurate then! It literally is the D4Y3 with the D4Y4 canopy! thanks Mike
  14. So the canopy itself and the cockpit interior should be the same in both kits then? I've got the F-15I but Eduard only do the Zoom etch and mask for the F-15E. thanks Mike
  15. I've got the GWH F-15I Ra'am kit in the stash and I've been wondering are the cockpit parts and canopy exactly the same as their F-15E kit? thanks Mike
