    Exactly, it was a worthy winner without doubt. A flawless piece of modelling. The judges got it spot on if you ask me.
  2. Glad the bits and bobs reached you ok, I quite enjoyed following their journey to you. You need to paint those chains, ammo boxes and tyres? When painting the tyres use a dark grey rather than a black. Now you've got the basic tools for the job you're good to go
  3. No Ju-88G or Ju188.
  4. Email them pointing out the problem and you'll get replacements. It's something they're aware of.
  5. Owl do decals for NH+VZ https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/OWLS4805 If any use. I believe they also used to do a conversion set if you can find one. Sadly they only produce decal sets now which is a shame.
  6. I can tell you what colour the Air Products bottles are here in the uk. CO2- black cylinder. Oxygen-black cylinder with white around the top. Argon-Blue cylinder Argon/Co2 mix-blue cylinder with white top. Acetylene-maroon cylinder Propane-orange cylinder. Whether they were those colours in the forties I don't know but they have been for as long as I can remember. Tim.
  7. Apologies if this has already been posted. I remember watching it first time round, enjoy. Tim.
  8. Looks a good un when built. https://www.modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=128308
  9. Yes i'm well aware who Jerry Crandall is. But as I say you're basing things now on one piece of wreckage. Crash reports are vague at best so so can be discounted when talking about exact colours. With that, i'm going to stick to my personal mantra which is "never argue with drunks and fools"! I'm sure you've got a photo of the said part for us all to have a look at. A picture is worth a 1000 words!
  10. What, on the basis of a piece of 78 years old wreckage, are you serious! Obviously you're entitled to your opinion and I respect that.
  11. As good a reason as any! Another thing I disagree with Tom Cleaver with, JG26 were using A-2s long before the channel dash, as noted in my first post Priller recieved his on the 11/12/41 and according to the JG26 War Diary Hptm. M├╝ncheberg scored 2 victories, both 441 Sqd Spitfires on the 16/12/41 in his recently received A-2. The first loss recorded of a JG26 A-2 W.Nr 217,I have is on the 22/12/41 which was lost in a flying accident. You'll love building yours, they're great little kits, i'm on my 3rd one now!
  12. Got to disagree with you there, the only RLM65 visible in those shots, is where the chevron and Priller's personal emblem has been over painted. I'd also say it is clearly finished in the standard 74/75 colours. The aircraft in question carried the Werknr. 20206 and first appeared in Priller's log book on 11/12/41 The pilot in first photo is Ofw. Walter Gr├╝nlinger, Priller's wingman. KIA 4/9/43 after amassing 12 victories. (Information from Luftwaffe im Focus Spezial No1, where those photos were first published.) People seem to not realise that RLM74had a distinctive green hue to it and was not a dark grey as most model paint companies would have you believe. I'd never trust fully the colours stated in crashed aircraft reports and the like. Faber's aircraft may have received a misting of RLM02 to the sides to tone the 76 down, not an entirely un common practice,but I doubt very much it left the factory in anything but 74/75/76 I've a few Eduard A-2's to build and have no problem with Eduard's colour call outs. The middle Fw109 with the flat wing root cowl in your first post is a A-1, and can't be built out of the Royal Class boxing so I don't know where Tom Cleaver got that information from. You get 2 or 4 gun wing options that is all and both feature the cowling with the bulge.
  13. Exactly what I thought! The way he got the saddle tank to over hang towards the rear was useful. I've seen 4 built up now on forums and no one has got that correct up to now, they've all been fit flush along the full length. So now you've got no excuse to build your 2nd kit with the saddle tank fit correctly!
  14. Another clip, this time with a couple of fixes. I see this time he hasn't fixed in the cockpit sides first
