  1. Not all G-14AS a/c were recycled form earlier variant. Later a/c were a result of trying to standardize parts though the variants, for example I have photos of a standard G-14 with a larger oil tank and with large wing bulges. I hesitate to say "all" in reference to any 109's or 190's made/recycled during the years 44-45. The above was to help clarify, or simplify, the G-10/G-14AS subject so one of our members wouldn't be thrown into the cauldron of late war modifications without a line to grab. Cheers, D.B.
  2. In my view, at the moment the best MTT or WNF G-10 is made by taking the nose, from the rear end of the elliptical fuselage bulges forward, of the Hasegawa G-10 or K-4 and grafting it to either the Has G-14 or Revell G-6 rear fuselage.
  3. That's going to take a lot of solder balls to make the rivets stand proud, but I'll probably give it a try at some point.
  4. Iain, and the rest of the guys!! Plus with many more to come! Cheers, D.B.
  5. Well, I'll have you know 1/72 is my preferred scale.........in U-boats.
  6. At first glance it appears to be a YZC colored patch. My best surmise.
