  1. Hi Pals, One of the members of my stash is a CHURCHILL VI, from AFV to 1/35, and apart from other issues, I never decide to "attack" it, because apart from being a more complex kit than others, I don't know which one or which ones they would be the correct or more appropriate colors for one of these. The idea would be for a vehicle in France in 1944. Personally, I like light colors more, but I don't know if in this case it would be correct... I've seen many Churchill AVRE, and these seem to be the case, mostly they are finished in pale or light green... But this being a VI, I don't see much info about it... My paint supplies include Vallejo Model Air and AKs for the most part, so it would be ideal if some reference of these brands were suitable for this task... Cheers and thanks in advance. Francis.👍
  2. I have a request for information on behalf of an old friend and modeling mentor, who is building a scale flying model of one of the Spad XIII C.1's flown by Roland Garros. He has been unable to find anything significant. I'm not very well-versed or blessed with references when it comes to WW1 aircraft, but I was able to find print references to his flying Spad XIII C.1 serial numbers 15403 and 15409, but I have no way of knowing if that is indeed correct. My friend would like to make his model an accurate tribute to Garros. I would appreciate anything the membership could post, so I can repay in part some of the things he taught me about building accurate models. Mike Does anyone who might have either the 1/72 or 1/48 Eduard Spad XIII kits know if Garros' Spad is one of the markings choices? Are there any afternarket decal sheets for his Spads that might be a good modeling reference? Thanks in advance for anything you could provide.
  3. I found this while looking for B-24's stored at Kingman, AZ at war's end. Some very well-known and not so well-known assembly ships. Great modeling projects here, but a masking nightmare! Another bunch of likely candidates for @tonyot's case of Minicraft Libs he has squirreled away!

  4. I wish we had a Colors and Markings forum, but I guessed this might be the best or most appropriate forum for this post. See the link below for everything you wanted to know about roundels but were afraid to ask. I'm sure there are omissions and errors, but it looks like a pretty good basic reference. Most of the information/photos are from WW2, but there are other eras covered. Many of the color photos appear to have been colorized, and some have been published before, but many were new to me, and I hope to you, as well. Enjoy!

  5. Howdy, looking for reference and possibly the correct markings for the Norwegian P-3 involved with the collision over the Barents Sea back in 1987. I already have the Su-27 markings in a Begemot sheet. Thanks
  6. What are those colors?? Captioned: "A very rare color photograph of a Bf 109 B-1 being the centre of attention for a group of Hitler Youth, obviously on a visit to a Luftwaffe station in 1938" in Aviation Classics issue 18, 2012 https://www.worldwarphotos.info/gallery/germany/aircrafts-2/messerschmitt_bf109/messerschmitt-bf-109-color-15/
  7. Hi Gents I know the subject has been treated but i would like to know if someone can do a reliable synthesis for the colors of: - Interior (cockpit, turret): Raf Grey-green. - Undercarriage bay: Aluminium or Raf Grey-green ? - Undercarriage : Aluminium/black or Raf grey-green/black - Flaps (interior): grey-green. for a Mk.1 or Mk.1f. Do you know where i can find a plan with rivets lines (book, internet) ? Thanks a lots Best regards Pierre
  8. Ok so Im considering restarting work on my oldest shelf queen. Its an old Monogram PBY-5 non-amphib. I started in 2003. Im doing it in RAAF camouflage. Im doing a night harassement Catalina. Similar to the Black cats. I know the colors are RAAF night, RAAF Dk. Ocean blue, over Matt black. I equate the colors to EDSG, USN non spec. Sea blue, over Matt Black. I know Red Roo do a decal set for the plane Im doing, however Ive been waiting 3 years and can never seem to scrape the $ together. It would eat about 6 months budget up in one purchase. What i really am looking for and need is. 1) Roundel and code sizes in inches or CM’s ? Outer diameter ? Inner circle diameter ? I can convert these to 1/48th. So i can make masks. 2) Placement locations - all 6 or just upper wings and Fuselage ? 3) Roundel Colors ? Which Blue is best over the white ? 4) What kind of antennas besides the standard radio wires would they have carried ? Similar to USN or RN? Or completely different. Im not sure if i should use the search antennas included in the kit that mount under the wing ? Any help or info. someone can provide me moves this project closer to completion ? I did recieve info pertaining to the camouflage patterns, and colors about 9 months ago when i queried about that. Which went along way to moving this along. Thank you in advance. Dennis
  9. I have another question for my 2-pounder project, for those who may be able to help. I have the set of shells and spent casings from RB Models. I had intended to just use the spent casings, but the loaded shells themselves are so nicely-done it seems a shame to not use them as well. But my attempts to get a look at the colors of the shells (whether there were any steel bands on them, etc.) has turned up next to nothing. I tried a variety of Google queries but all I got were 17-pounder and 25-pounder examples. Any idea whether the rounds were just satin-ish black, or if there were any bands/stripes on them? Thanks in advance, Randy
  10. I am nearly finished making a small diorama featuring a German halftrack. I want to have Jerry can on it that will be used for carrying water rather than fuel. Did the Germans use different colors to show this, or were they in some other way specially marked ? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Carl T
  11. Someone could explain why the RAF aircraft until recently used the same color scheme of the Second World War? Thanks
