  1. Hello rotorheads, while researching paints for my many models in my stash, I came across this very interesting and cool article about a fellow veteran. She is a former airforce master sergeant, Shayne Meder has been painting SH-60 and other airframes for the last twenty years. Here work can be seen on no less than 50 helos and other aircraft, and may in fact be included as decals on the kits we build. If they don't have her work in decals, they certainly should, she does incredible work! Here is a link to the story https://www.military.com/daily-news/2018/02/25/air-force-vet-uses-military-aircraft-canvas-her-art.html This is her website https://www.flygirlpainters.com/about Follow the links of google image search for even more great pics!
  2. Hi I've just found interesting set of photos with Curtiss C-46 Commando belonging to 4th Combat Cargo Group of USAAF in Burma during WWII. https://www.flickr.com/photos/tresijas/sets/72157630818092194/ You may find eleven serials of C46 serving there: http://www.comcar.org/4th_ComCar/14th_CCS_so317.htm Any idea how to link nose arts with serials? Cheers Jerzy-Wojtek
  3. Hi, Two Fox Moths were impressed to SEAC: MA954 was impressed 31.10.42 and was used by 3rd TAF Communications Sqn, Comilla in .44. Soc 31.7.44. MA955 was impressed 31.10.42 and was used by Bengal CU and later by 3rd TAF Communications Sqn, Comilla. Soc 31.7.44. There are at least two photos in IWM collection showing of one of those machines, they were recently quoted in a topic on this forum on SEAC types http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234976366-india-white-seac-roundels-on-miscellaneous-types/ On the photo of second post there - presenting SEAC Fox Moth - there is something on the engine cover, on right lower corner. I cannot recognize - is it a kind of nose art, or rather this is just a lack of paint? Position of it suggests rather the second option - but perhaps somone knows it better. Second question - the visible national insignia (roundel) on top of the wing has unusual proportion with very small light center. This recll me rather those used by FAA in Indian Ocean area then typical SEAC mark. Is it possible, that it was like FAA one - with white middle, not light blue? Can anoboty help? I am finishing with my Fox Model in this markings.... Regards Jerzy-Wojtek
  4. Hi all, I'd been very keen to get hold of this Auster for quite a while and, at last, I got it a few weeks back I decided to have a little bit of fun with this aircraft so I decided to paint it as a hack aircraft of a 2TAF fighter squadron, lovingly adorned with one or Vargas' pin-up girls as well as an extremely optimistic tally on the nose Construction was reasonably straightforward and offered lots of opportunity for scratch building (I couldn't resist). Though I didn't do any major work to the overall model, I spent a lot of time adding the small details, in my mind it's the small things that make the big difference. Details of additions below pictures. Aerial wires made from fishing line Pitot tube made from wire Steps from thicker wire Handles and counter mass balance from wire IMG_8014_zps113e2a19 by Ben Standen, on Flickr IMG_8015_zps438bc286 by Ben Standen, on Flickr IMG_8017_zpse127c066 by Ben Standen, on Flickr IMG_8018_zps38304ca7 by Ben Standen, on Flickr IMG_8019_zps41d51250 by Ben Standen, on Flickr IMG_8023_zps9ea9042a by Ben Standen, on Flickr IMG_8024_zps3e302219 by Ben Standen, on Flickr IMG_8026_zpsa46546af by Ben Standen, on Flickr The pin up was home printed then applied over a white background before carefully painting the dark earth around it. Thanks for looking! Ben
  5. Hello fellow modelers, I am looking for the colors of the nose art of a B-17F that crashed in the Netherlands, near the town of Zegveld, in february 1944. The plane was named San Antonio Rose, and the nose art depicts a girl with a lasso, which wraps around the two nose windows on the port side. I have a b/w picture... We are building a model of this particular B-17 for a memorial display on May 15-16, so any help regarding the colors would be greatly appreciated! Regards, René

Available in preorder in Kagero’s webshop: http://shop.kagero.pl/en/pacific-lightnings-part-i.html SMI LIBRARY No. 8 B-17 Flying Fortress in Combat over Europe Tomasz Szlagor The B-17 Flying Fortress epitomized the American airpower for most of the Second World War. It was by far the most effective weapon to carry out the strategic, daylight bombing campaign in Europe. The battles fought by B-17 crews during raids on such tough targets as Schweinfurt, Berlin or Ploesti were nothing short of epic. The combined effort of the two US Army Air Forces, 8th and 15th, stationed in England and Italy respectively, eventually denied the enemy the means to wage war and sealed the fate of the European Axis powers and their allies. This 92 page book includes 130 b&w and 11 colour archive photos, colour profiles of 6 aircraft, as well as a decal sheet printed by Cartograf which contains 1:32 and 1:72 individual markings for the following planes: - B-17G-25-BO; s/n 42-31678, 'Little Patches', coded 'LL-L' of 401st BS / 91st BG, - B-17F-50-BO; s/n 42-5360, 'Old Faithful', coded 'VK-N' of 358th BS / 303rd BG.
