  1. It is also listed on the HKM web page for WW II, not their pages for Cold War or Modern.
  2. Galland had two machines , W. Nr. 5819 and W. Nr. 6714, at the time. Both machines carried the same markings. Galland was asked at a seminar about the colors but stated that he did not remember. His former chief mechanic was also present and advised that Galland's aircraft were camouflaged with gray paint but did not elaborate.
  3. It has been rumored that the Revell design also incorporated plans for an early G model. Maybe some day... Or perhaps ...
  4. The Revell G-6 kit is very accurate in its basic proportions but the cowl gun troughs are about 2mm too close together, the cowl beule are noticeably undersized and the oil cooler is a poor representation. But there is after market resin that address all three issues. The Hasegawa is very good in it basic dimensions, the exception being the forward fuselage which is about 4 mm too short. This is located aft of the cowl and forward of the cockpit. Although 4mm does not sound like much it puts the buele noticeably too close to the cockpit. The Trumpeter kit has an odd look to it , largely because of errors in the fuselage, forward of the canopy.
  5. Agreed a waste of time, unless you want to build a model of one of the movie props from the 1942 Hollywood production Flying Tigers... Perhaps a 1/32 scale John Wayne figure is in the works?
  6. W. Nr. 8086 is an Erla built Bf 109 F-2. Tail re-enforcement strips were found on both F-2 and F-4s and is not indicative as to sub type. Marseilles last assigned Bf 109 F-4 was delivered in the late summer of 1942 and had the re-enforcement strips.
  7. The aircraft was delivered with Luftwaffe markings, and should have received Finnish marking soon after delivery. It was damaged the day after the photograph below was taken, July 2, 1944. The aircraft was repaired in November 1944, after the end of the Continuation War, so it is likely it never had the Finnish Swastika markings applied.
  8. I agree with Radub regarding the Bentley drawings, they are phenomenal. There are others that are also quite good and I suggest you follow this link for an example. The drawing are for an A-5 and a D-9 and not the A-8, but they are very well done. The Japanese text can be addressed with a online translator.
