  1. Spectacular work, Larry! Keep the photos coming! Cheers, D.B.
  2. A photo of my latest 1:1 Little Boy, Generation V (5th production), in progress: Completed and in place at The Stafford Air & Space Museum in Weatherford, Oklahoma. (At the moment it's under the wing of an F-16 - something you don't see every day!) Photo by Chaney Larsen Cheers, D.B.
  3. Interesting collection. I think the 190A came from a museum in the Rio Grande valley in south Texas. I wonder if the 190D a Flugwerk product. Thanks for posting, Mark.
  4. Wow, talk about a worn paint job! Very helpful in many senses. Since you're in Bossier City I assume the shots are at Barksdale. Is 1007 in current service or out for surface maintenance? Cheers, D.B. (approx133 mi west of Barksdale AFB)
  5. Don't they, though? Hope they will drop the price range into do-able.
  6. Kev The only SB2C image I saw on the forum was the one above. But, yes, you do have to be a member to see images. Being quick with a translation site doesn't hurt. Yes, Chrome will translate the site, but one has to be a Chrome user for that to work, I think. Not a fan of G****e. Cheers, D.B.
  7. Some beautiful shots there, Craig. Thanks for posting!! Cheers, D.B.
  8. From website in Andreas' post above: "HPH is breaking new ground. In the future they will invest more in cooperation with FLYModels. That was already the case with the 1/32 Hurricane. The next model in 1/32 will be the SB2C Helldiver. Also, the A-20 Havoc, which was intended as a resin model, will now appear in injection molding. One reason for this is likely to be the now sluggish sales of the not very cheap Resinmodelle. Of the C-47 only 60 pieces have been sold so far. On the big models, such as B-52 and Gigant but continues to work."
  9. Looking pretty good from here. Cheers, D.B.

  13. Roger The third photo from the top appears to ma as having been painted RLM 66, at the beginning of the fork, with rust showing through at the bottom of the forks. I know of no steel parts left unpainted on Luftwaffe aircraft, but never say never! HTH, D.B.
