  1. Was up there myself on Sunday, was good to see Mike again after 3 months. Came back with this, which I had on back order. Bf109's & JG300 what's not to like about it.
  2. But we're not talking about the Ta152C in this thread are we
  3. Then just use a colour you fancy! A more believable option would be to paint one or more of the cowlings in a different camouflage and say they/it had been taken from a different airframe, which did happen from time to time, rather than just paint part of it. I doubt if many if any look in on any forums to help with their research.
  4. Perhaps you should take heed of your first paragraph and until some photos crop up of your 2 aircraft just forget about modelling them because as things stand at the moment those profiles are just pure fantasy.
  5. The kindest thing to say about H Models research when it comes to their decals is that it's flaky. Using white 43 as an example, their profile shows a short tail wheel and no spinner spiral. The photo of White 43 clearly shows that it was fit with a tall tail wheel and spinner spiral! As Troy has already pointed out the rudder was not white (deflected rudder) but RLM 76. There was also a White 44 found at the same airfield belonging to the same unit. My advice when it comes to H-Models is avoid! If you want to build a accurate White 43 you'll need to scribe a rectangle in the port side of the Erla canopy to represent the small opening part that was present in the actual aircraft. You can just make it out in Claes's profile.
  6. Yes, sorry if I came across a tad snappy.
  7. I met both of them at signing events Reschke at Duxford, that was very entertaining as he told a particularly loud ex B-17 rear gunner what would have happened to him. The passing of time had definitely not eased any tension. He certainly shut him up anyway, music to my ears it was. As for the orange Ta, he who laughs last, laughs the longest. Loos was never part of any signing event he'd come along with someone so it was just pure luck that I met him. I best not elaborate anymore, I don't want to be upsetting our friends from across the pond that frequently this forum. Sorry but thats just ridiculous to think any old paint was simply thrown on aircraft even at the end of the war. You tell tell by looking at the camouflage which factory assembled the likes of the Fw190 D, and even the last Bf109s. If you're interested in the Ta152 then I suggest you invest in Edition No 29 of Luftwaffe im Focus as there is a nice article about the use of the Ta152 in JG301.
  8. I've met and spoken to both Willi Reschke and Walter Loos and they both insist that that was a wind up that ,"that dumb American fell for hook line and sinker" There were a fair few Luftwaffe guys that i've met at various signing events that have made comments that are less than savoury about the said person.

  11. I use MRP all the time, it sprays perfectly, superb stuff, you'll be hooked once you've used it.
  12. https://forum.ww1aircraftmodels.com/index.php?topic=11118.0 Worth a read.
  13. 109's+JG300+Dual combo=Eduard take my money A very happy bunny after reading that they're releasing 3 dual combos concentrating on JG300, JG301 & JG302. Some great camouflage schemes to look forward to in the future.
  14. They are also re branded as Meng. E models have them in stock. https://www.emodels.co.uk/meng-model-advanced-single-edged-hobby-side-cutter-mts-026.html I can't remember what I paid for mine but those seem pretty expensive. HM Hobbies sell them. https://www.hmhobbies.co.uk/st-a-20-single-edged-fine-modelling-cutters-for-plastic-dspiae.html At a much better price although at the moment they're out of stock.
