Hello everybody,

I have just returned from ModelBrno competition, with this model. Price with all for me available discounts (taking in mind the decal sheet...) was ok.

Awesome, I didn't know the kit had already been released. Can you please post a photo of the decal sheet? I'm interested to see if they got the color of the RNZAF roundels correct.

I guess imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, eh?

What's the imitation, Jennings?

 

Eduard website has photo of the decal sheet, the kiwi roundels look too dark to my eyes (Ventura sheets nail the blue IMO, good thing I have some in the stash).  I "need" another -N but will wait until the price drops to double digits to pick one up

He's talking about Lulu Belle, which he released on his Fundekals site  http://www.fundekals.../LuluBelle.html

Ooooh, yeah that makes sense. Ventura does one of not both of those kiwi schemes too. Guess Eduard isn't capable of original thought in their marking options, eh?

Already have the Ventura decals for Gloria Lyons scheme, Resin wheels and exhausts from when Derek Bradshaw was selling them so I just ordered the overtrees from the Eduard site for £38 delivered. Sure hope its like their other overtree stuff and I get the whole kit minus decals and fancy add ons..... maybe should have asked first and not been impulsive. Oh well.

Looks like they made the mistake of printing "LuLu Belle" in white when it should be yellow. Not a BIG deal as it's fairly easy to overpaint the decal with yellow.

I'm getting to be a fan of the Overtree thing Eduard does. I ordered one of their Spitfire kits, and an Overtree set as well.  Its all there, minus the PE, Masks and Decals.  Very cool!

Check out the link below (scroll half way down)

 

No, they didn't, they printed those stupid  Electric/pale blue markings which never ever existed. Not impressed by the

supposed Olive Drab either, and missed the code letter "G" off NZ3220

This colour painting by the RNZAF Artist Maurice Conly (who actually spent time in the forward area) shows what the correct

colour should look like

Decals in reality are much more close to the colors from instruction sheet. Distributors leaflet is more for information as for considering the reality:

Well, a copy for sure, but not really a very good copy.  Skull details wrong.  Name wrong.  Serial number height/width/stroke proportions wrong.

 

Think it's not a copy?  Check the camo pattern on the rudder.  That was essentially randomly drawn by my hand.  

 

Oh well.
