  1. Both well-chosen schemes. For more background on these aircraft and NSG9, I can recommend the book Ghost Bombers by Nick Beale.
  2. Good work Max. I've got one of these to do, I trust it's OK if I take notes?
  3. I'm with Kevin too. Is saying that I'd also like an Me 410 (recce version of course) far enough back on topic? Or to go slightly further, a Dinah would be good too.
  4. I've used Vallejo and Vallejo Model Air; my main problem is that they seem to have a rather short shelf life, particularly once you open the bottle. I've given up on the metallics: they look good once applied, but next day the black undercoat is showing though: you seem to lose a lot of the metallic pigment in the curing.

Some may say it's a relatively obscure aircraft, but it was a lovely-looking machine, especially the open-cockpit variants, and it did serve with the Luftwaffe, and a few other air arms, as well as the pre-March-1939 Czechoslovak Air Force. <Edit> It does also have a unique claim to fame: a IV serie. version, flying for the Slovak insurgents, shot down a Hungarian Ju 52 in September 1944, thus achieving the last ever
