Hi all, I hope this is the right place to ask this, couldn't find a more appropriate one - it's a really obscure subject. So I'm planning to display several aircraft types in NATO service together. Having done a little research it seems aircraft stationed at southern German bases would often frequent bases on the other side of the Alps in Northern Italy, Aviano being a popular destination it seems. My question is: Would those aircraft have taken the long way over France or would they have had permission to overfly neutral Austria (assuming Switzerland was out of the question) to reach those bases? I'm thinking early 1980s by the way. Thank you, Jay
The Hasegawa Drakens are beautiful and easy to build kits. Despite that it has taken me about six years to finish the first one - this, the Austrian J35Ö Draken. Apart from a Quickboost resin ejection seat the kit is built OOB. As usual I used Xtracolor sprayed freehand for the main colour scheme. I just wish there were more Draken colour schemes to choose from. Jens
Finally I managed to finish a model - also finished it in under a month!!! Revell kit, out of the box. No added bits, just a straight forward build. I stumbled across a framed photo/painting - call it what you prefer, and though that would go well in my room. One day, I stumbled over this kit, and lobbed it in my room, along with the picture. And it was here, that I noticed that the painting I had bought, was in fact the boxart of the kit I had just bought! So it was a pretty easy decision, to choose what plane it should be built as. So, here goes: Revell 1/48 Spitfire Mk IXc, No. 43 Squadron RAF, Klagenfurt, Austria June 1945 Robin
Hi, from the in progress build: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234929019-austrian-eurofighter-148-j-10-parallel-build-decaled/ it is now kind of ready for some photos, and as the weather was nice today.... here you are: Austrian Airforce Patches from 1st & 2nd Staffel, they share 15 Eurofighter Tranche 1 between them. Decals are mainly Revell, national insignia are from IPMS Austria and Decalfactory. some magic hand removal: Hope you like it!
