    HK Lanc review

    But with their shipping fees, I'll probably get two from Japan for the same money...

    Real Colors of WWII Aircraft book

    The late war colours from the RC paint range are based on the original recipes for Luftwaffe camouflage colours, for one of the most important paint suppliers in Germany in World War II, that had been discovered by Jens Mühlig. In the case of RLM 83, we know very little about its practical use, but it is very probable that its test version was the basic colour of the Ju 88 A-4 trop that mistakenly landed in Switzerland in October 1943, and perhaps other aircraft of the type that are mentioned to be painted 'royal blue' in some recollections (see Merrick, vol.1, p.91). The case of RLM 81 is a bit more complicated and it is explained in the book.

    May I ask where this new photo reference can be found? One'd appreciate quoting the sources, therefore allowing for making own opinion.

    New decals: I.A.R.81-C

    Great! Since a long time I was looking for a replacement for poor decals from PARC/A-Model kit.
  8. Indeed, CE did decals for 'Marine's Dream', but not in all scales and they're not available now. Judy, if you include the markings for it in one of your sets, I'm in for it Cheers, Maciej

    Shomo's F-6D - named or not?

    Hi Dave, My understanding is that at first the aircraft appeared like on the photos from Jim Crow's collection I included to the instruction sheet, and very soon it received all the decorations, possibly for the first 'official' photoshoot. Indeed, the 'Flying Undertaker' was a different machine. Best, Maciej

    FW-190D Books - which ones to buy?

    Yes, that's also very interesting and useful stuff, but rather for more advanced Fw 190 aficionados. I own all these documents and they're helpful while building a model.
