  1. There was one which landed in Switzerland, right? I believe an A-14 (so a maritime plane from the start) of KG54 with a wellenmuster on top if I am not mistaken.
  2. I have been postponing the building of my Revell 1:32 Ju88 A-4 and He111 H-6 for ages since I started having doubts about their proper camo colors - as I want to model both in continental coastal service, should they be finished in RLM 72/RLM 73 as all maritime aircraft proper (such as the Fw200 Condor, the Blohm & Voss 138 or the Arado 196) or in the customary bomber scheme of RLM 70/RLM 71? In other words, does anybody know if the maritime scheme of RLM 72/RLM 73 was customarily and officially applied at the factory on airplanes batches earmarked for over-water use even if the models were not originally built as such? As we all know, both the Ju88 and the He111 had versions specifically built or factory-adapted for maritime, coastal and general over-water work such as torpedo carrying - my question is, would these be factory painted in the maritime scheme of RLM 72/RLM 73 or just conveniently finished in the land camo scheme of RLM 70/RLM 71, as usual? Opinions - possibly supported by hard facts or official documents - much appreciated, thanks !
  3. I believe the two aircraft depicted in Radu's photos are two different ones - the spacing between the codes is quite different, even without taking in consideration the repainting of the 3U of the first image after the white band was applied. Also, the first one looks a tropicalized version to me, with the photo having been taken in Greece, Sicily or North Africa. In fact, it looks like it possibly had a cloudy spray of RLM79 applied over its European camouflage scheme...
  4. I was wondering if it would make sense painting 3U+GT in the transitional scheme of 02/71/65, which I always really liked. It looks too light in the photos to be 70/71/65 in my opinion anyway. What do you think?
  5. Anybody knows which is the "other" decal option being offered in the box besides the Wespen Geschwader one?
  6. Wow! Now I'm tempted to get one myself
  7. Beautiful build of a beautiful plane!
  8. Sadly I realised it only AFTER having completed my kit! I cannot believe how Trumpeter could make such a grotesque mistake . Now I'll have to find a way to correct my upcoming G-2 Kanonenvogel without making a mess...
  9. But that is exactly what I wrote - this whole post is about the sad fact that the Trumpeter kit is too long
  10. That was indeed the subject of my original post - yes, after eight pages of replies and discussion we've come to the inescapable conclusion that the rear fuselage of the Trumpeter 1:24 Ju87 D is about 3cm too long. This inexcusable mistake - scaled down - also applies to their 1:32 kit. You can see more pics of the finished kit in the "Articles" section of this forum. And yes, that's my 1:24 P-47 "Phyl Darlin'" wing in the foreground.
  11. It's the Bf110 for me since I don't see any in 1:24 coming soon...
