  1. Hats off. Great P-51 model and photo session. Cheers
  2. Oustanding work, John! As always! I am a big fan of your modelling skills, you are on the top of my best modellers list. I am waiting for FW190A or Spitfire from you. Cheers
  3. Hello John It is disappointed that the only 32nd Tempest available on the market has so many issues. I saw lots of finished models on a few modelshows but all of them had no flat wings. Great you show the manual how to fix that. Thumbs up
  4. John, I was sure before you asked. I checked this once again. I have the same book as you from Jerry Crandall, this is the best source in my opinion. You are right, the port is highly visible. But if you look on the pic from Holand (war period photos) there is no port on them. The same is on the restored D13 as you said. If you look on the D13 cockpit photos there is no flare port on the main board as well. I saw that Jerry is active in your topic so maybe he could help. But if I am wrong sorry for the mess.
  5. John, look at the pictures of the real D-13, there is no flare tube on the starboard sideof the forward fuselage. Simmilar sitation is on the most D-9 (late production). Great build!
  6. Great job! Miloslav, could you take a close up photo of the rivets? I am still considering to buy them for P-47 so I hope your photos will help me to take a decision. Thanks
  7. John, google translator said that means "additional panel line". I found this pic in JaPo book, this additional line is visible:
  8. Magic! Great reference material for future model build. Thank you!
  9. Chuck, Those rivets are mushroom head rivets (snap head) and the are used to join rear area of the fuselage in early version of Spitfire (from Mk.I to Mk.V). As you said this Spitfire on the pictures is early version. Later Spitfires versions (from Mk.IX) had countersunk head rivets. So rivets in your model (Mk.IX) won't be so visible. Regards
  10. Hi My friend is working on Ju-88C-6 C9+AE model now.Camuflage scheme is nachtjager pilot Prinz zu Sayn Wittgenstein. He has a problem with colors of stains on the fuselage. He show me this photo: http://4.bp.blogspot...ory marking.jpg there are a lot of stains on camuflage. What kind of color these are? Many publications write that this is the same color RLM 74 or RLM 75, main color under the stains was RLM 76. But I found a plastic model where the stains are RLM 74 and 75 together: http://www.facebook....84350370&type=3 What do you think about it? Which scheme is good? I will appreciate if you can help me. Best regards
  11. Hi thanks a lot, for your comments. I know that paper modeling is a little exotic for you AceofClubs I wrote a few things about wathering in my other topics: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=36079 http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=36078 as i said, I use the same techniques wathering like plastic modelers: oil paints, postshading, wash etc. Paper shapeing is not so simple, a lot of paper modelers. many modelers learns that throughout their life, me too. We are watching a lot of build raports and learn from them. Just as plastic modelers! Each of us has his own technique of shaping paper, for which he could write a book! it is a matter of training! Regards Peter
