  1. Just over 6 months into 1/72 scale build of HMNZS Achilles, What a Stupid Boy!!, Based on drawings from Polish print Leander book and my Dads photos and anything else I can glean from anywhere. When I figure out how to post images I will do so. This project has a lot of detail issues not easily resolved so in the odd place I have had to go with gut instinct.
  2. As part of our ongoing work I was reading through some references I had in paper photocopy only. I decided to retype this one in full, partly to ensure it sunk in properly but mainly because the paper photocopy was a little poor in places and scanning it to have an electronic copy would likely have resulted in something fairly marginal to read. Having done all that yesterday, I then decided to make the facsimile copy available for others to download. Confidential Admiralty Fleet Order 1112/42 (C.A.F.O. 1112/42) is dated 11th June 1942 and post-dates C.A.F.O. 679/42 which may seem obvious
  3. In May of 1942, JG 27 had a 4th Staffel attached to it's third group to perform exclusively in the fighter-bomber (Jabo) role. Depending on the source, I find the aircraft listed either as the 109-E4B or E7B? This unit only lasted about 3-4 months when III.Gruppe relinquished it's control, and it became part of JaboGruppe Afrika. Any ideas of how these aircraft might have been marked up? I'm thinking it was typical Luftwaffe tropical scheme, with aircraft number possibly in blue (Staffel colour) on the engine cowl, and the wavy style Gruppe marking also in blue. Gruppe emblem
  4. Hello, I am now building HMAS Canberra in 1/700 as she appeared just before the time of her loss at Savo Island on August 8th, 1942, but I´ve got an aircraft-related question. She carried a Supermarine Walrus on her catapult at that time and I am trying to find out how this particular aircraft was camouflaged. Unfortunately, there are only a few photos of either Canberra or her sister ship Australia from that time period, neither of them giving a really clear view of the Walrus to be able to tell it´s colours. The regular RAF Temperate Sea Scheme (Extra Dark Slate Grey / Dark Slate Grey / Sky)
  5. Hello, I am now building HMAS Canberra in 1/700 as she appeared just before the time of her loss at Savo Island on August 8th, 1942, based on the Kombrig resin kit. My questions at this moment are related to details of the following: Bridge equipment - there is a well-known photo showing HMAS Australia´s open bridge details during wartime, but her modified bridge was very much different from her sister´s at that time. Would anybody have some photos showing other Kent-class cruiser´s original-style bridge layout and details? Type 271 radar was housed in a typical lantern, that had
  6. I don't know if this has been posted before but it is worthwhile listening to. In 1942 the Japanese were bombing ports in the north of Australia, ranging all the way across the top of the continent from Western Australia to Queensland. Several of those raids were on the city I live in now, Townsville. As it happened one of Australia's great war correspondents, Chester Wilmot, was passing through Townsville on his way to New Guinea and was doing an interview with an American pilot when the third of these raids occurred and was able to capture the sounds and give a commentary. This is from th
  7. I'm sure I saw this on here before but a search couldn't find it. I think it is worth another mention. In 1942 the BBC sent a sound man out to record a Nightingale. He also got a bomber stream going overhead on it's way to Europe .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_MHqW5KVds I find this a very poignant few minutes. You may wish to reflect on how many of those brave young men may not have returned that night. Thank you. Pete
  8. Just finished another project. Polikarpov I-152 (I-15bis) from Special Hobby in 1/48 scale. Building process and more pictures you can see here: https://goo.gl/photos/EWb28Anj2Hx8CUZ77 The model is not for beginners. There were some difficulties, but overall positive experience. The result - one box became less Hope you like it Regards Ivan.
  9. Hi all, I am new on this forum and this diorama is my biggest work, so far. The basic kits were the Hasegawa's old bf 109E and the Tamiya reissued Opel Blitz. During the building I used a lot of PE and detail sets, such as Eduard, Part, Hauler, SBS Model! Hope you like it! Thanks or watching! Cheers, Matyi from Hungary
