  1. John, Just read this WIP from the first page today while listening to the wind and rain courtesy of storm Freya and I am just blown away ( not sure if that was a pun ) by your work. I have the 1/32 B-24 on the way ( yup I know about the problems ) and the way you weathered your 262 is a great inspiration to me. The whole a/c just looks right!! I just hope I can get the Lib to look as worn and used as your 262 as I have some great pics to work from. Just a shame your finished now but I have book marked this WIP....Hope you don't mind? Regards Mark
  2. Thanks for the link very useful for me. Cheers Mark
  3. Many thanks for that info Mike. I was looking for one or two letter codes not just a tail flash as an Id....Know wonder I couldn't find it!! Now just to find the 12 AF 47 BG which was based at Bury St Edmunds in Dec 42 and that's the last piece of the jigsaw so I can get on with step two of this mad project!! Once again many thanks Mike. Mark
  4. Just realised a mistake I've made. I said they were based at Bentwaters but it should have read Bungay ( also know as Flixton ) in Suffolk. Hope that may give someone a clue to work on? Cheers Mark
  5. Thanks Brian that's what i'm hoping for I need those codes to start my project but all i'm doing at the moment is banging my head against the wall Mark
  6. Thanks for the reply Rick by the look of my empty inbox I've posed a question that people can't answer? Cheers Mark
  7. Hi folks can anyone help? I am trying to find the Squadron code for aircraft of the USAAF 12 AF 428 BS who were part of the 310 BG. They were based at Bentwaters in Suffolk for a brief period ( Oct - Nov 42 ) with B-25's before moving to Italy I think. I have been going through all my books and come up blank and tried searching the web under everything I can think of to no avail,that's where you peeps come in!! Does anyone have a clue? Cheers for the help... Mark
  8. Give this a go http://www.littlefriends.co.uk If no joy get in touch again and i'll see what I can find... Mark
  9. Don't know if this help anyone with research info etc but I stumbled across this website several months ago while in the middle of doing research for my project. It's a site dedicated to those who flew in the 8th AF fighter command and has some great info. I dare say loads of you already know of this site but for those who don't well worth a visit. Cheers All Mark
  10. Thanks for the intrest Mike. Yup its a huge project but its something i've wanted to do for ages. I was ready to start but lost my job in Aug so money is tight hence no spending on kits!! Does give me time to sort out and decorate my hobby room on a shoestring budget and do more research though!! Any info you have or pics i'd be glad of will be asking for more help I dare say in the future!! Cheers Mark
  11. Don't know if any of you very knowledgeable people out there can help? RAF sqn codes are really easy to find but some of the USAAF ones are proving a real pain any good ref books or websites you can recommend? Trying to find info on the 12th AF 47BG which was at Buy St Edmunds ( Rougham ) for a brief period in Dec 42 with A-20 Havocs but can't find codes and what mark of Havoc.... Cheers Mark
  12. Will do Mike as soon as I get a new job I can start!! One of the first will be Robin Olds P-38 Scat 479FG 434 FS based at Wattisham... Cheers Mark
  13. Cheers Maru, Now to get a job so I an start my quest!!!
  14. A very belated Happy New Year to all the guys and girls on here....been a while since of been on just glad to see the back of 2018. 2019 can only be better!! Trying to catch up with so much new stuff on here and the quality of the models still blows my mind!! In the process of a project that I will never probably complete but the research is fun!! I'm going through all the airfields used in the county of Suffolk during WW2 and listing sqn's,aircraft used sqn codes etc and hope to try and start building at least one aircraft from each airfield sqn etc.... We will see Mark
  15. Kent I will be sending you my dentist bill for the bottom row of my teeth where my jaw that has just hit the floor!! Speechless!! Mark
