  20. Various Aircraft Canopy (and other) Masks 1:48 Eduard Supplied on a sheet of yellow kabuki tape, these pre-cut masks supply you with a full set of masks for the canopy, with compound curved handled by using frame hugging masks, while the highly curved gaps are in-filled with either liquid mask or offcuts from the background tape. In addition you often get a set of hub/tyre masks for the wheels, allowing you to cut the demarcation perfectly with little effort. The new Tface masks go beyond (or should that be "within") the exterior, and provide additional masks tailored to the inside of the glazing to allow the modeller to paint the interior of their clear parts before attaching them to the model, so that matt finishes to the interior can be achieved, and a more realistic look obtained for the canopy. Here's a selection of the most recent sets that arrived without lots of lovely PE sets in tow. Bf.109G Erla Canopy Tface (EX581 for Eduard) The late war Erla canopy used only a few panels for a more streamlined look, which also improved rearward visibility immensely. As with the greenhouse below, you get all the panes inside and out, plus a pair of wingtip light masks too. Bf.109G Classic Canopy Tface (EX582 for Eduard) The original "greenhouse" style canopy with many facets will send some modellers insane, but here you'll get inside and out masks, plus a pair of masks for the wingtip lights into the bargain. F-35A Lightning II (EX567 for Meng) As well as the big curved canopy of this fifth generation fast jet, you also get a handy set of wheel masks, and as a bonus the faceted sensor window under the nose is also catered for. B-17G Anti-glare Panels (VE Production EX572 for Monogram) The factory at Lockheed Vega produced B-17Gs and used three styles of anti-glare panels on the nose, as well as two styles on the inboard sides of each of the four engine nacelles. The nose masks are full sheets of tape, while the highly curved surfaces of the nacelles are supplied as outline masks, which you must fill with your preferred masking medium to complete the task. Plenty of wartime photos and diagrams ease your way through this process, and assumes you spray the anti-glare shade before the main painting process. B-17G Anti-glare Panels (BO & DL Production EX568 for Monogram) Boeing's own Number 2 plant in Seattle also produced B-17Gs, as did Douglas in Long Beach, California, with two variations on the nose anti-glare panels, and two on the inner faces of the engine nacelles, with the same solid nose masks, and edge masks for the nacelles, which you must fill with additional masking to cope with the curves. Again, this assumes you paint the anti-glare panels first, with plenty of drawings and photos showing you the way. Review sample courtesy of
  21. I have been trying to find an answer to this, but to no avail. Would anyone here be able to tell me, how thick the armoured glass plate was that was installed on the windscreen of the Bf.109?

  23. I have been listening to a BBC History Extra Podcast (from iTunes Store) about the Battle of Britain. It’s a lecture by a historian called James Holland. It’s quite interesting and not really “controversial” but there are two things he’s said that seem to me to be unlikely or wrong. Firstly, he mentions the He.112 as being a better all-round fighter than the Bf.109. From what I’ve read (admittedly on Wikipedia) there was not much in it between the 112 and 109 when fitted with the Rolls-Royce Kestrel engine but the 112 lagged behind the 109 when fitted with the Jumo. It then seems the Luftwaffe High Command then went with the 109 partly as it was less complicated to build and better prepared for war. Would the 112 have been the better option for the Luftwaffe (I think it had very good endurance compared to the 109/Spitfire/Hurricane? Secondly he repeatedly states that the 109 had 54-55 seconds-worth of ammunition compared the 15 seconds for the Spitfire or Hurricane. According to my calculations (again based on Wikipedia) the 109 had 500 rounds per MG17 with a rate of fire of 1200rpm giving about 25 seconds firing and about 7 seconds for the MG FF cannon (60 rounds at 520 rpm). Any idea where he could have got the 54-55 seconds from? (By the way I make it that the Spitfire or Hurricane had about 18 second’s worth of ammo)
