  1. Yep, it was '69, along with the Wildcat, P-47 bubble and the Stuka, the first Revell 1/32 series started in '67 with the Spitfire, Bf109F and P-40. The Zero was '66.
  2. Hi Rafju, I modified the kit part. The part that looked off was the top center front. I built up some Apoxie Sculpt to the inside in case I went thru but it ended up I didn't. Then I just sanded away, first the profile elevation, then blended the sides in after. I used a decent profile like the one below... ...this is the area I removed material ... I added a strip of styrene around the lip as I thot the kit lip was too sharp. Then I radiused it smooth. Here's a decent profile elevation ... HTH, not tryin' to hijack nighthawk's thread

  6. It's from an issue of 'Luftwaffe Im Focus" No.4 2004. It's a C-5 5D+JL Russia summer of '41. It later was one of about 50 C-5s and E-3s that were modified with the rearward facing periscope and side guns. From 3.(F)/31 which had a 'crab' emblem.
