  1. Quoting from the Old Man Blog: "This photo shows all of the parts in the liquid-cooled inverted-V 12-cylinder Daimler-Benz DB 605 engine, which powered the Bf 109 G. This engine is also replicated in detail, including the pistons inside of the cylinder block. In addition, the fuel pump, oil filter, starter, power generator, and other auxiliary parts and the radial coolant tank in the tip of the nose are all replicated in detail! By the way, this DB 605 engine also powered the Bf 110, Me 210, and other aircraft." Perhaps the mention of the Bf 110 and Me 210 are more than incidental?
  2. A trivial note that I hesitate to mention, but in the interest of accuracy the spinner back plate was notched behind the prop blades on all G, K and some Fs. Perhaps this is a detail not worth consideration...
  3. Some F-4s did have the same wheel wells as the G, although it was rare. Check for photos of the aircraft your going to model, there is a possibility that it has the G style wells.
  4. Vast majority of F-4s had the round wheel wells, G-2 reverted to the earlier style common to F-2, and E series.
  5. Thanks Alain for posting. After watching the film it appears (to me) that the Revell rendition of the forward fuselage and canopy looks pretty good, even better than the ZM kit.
  6. Here are two photos of W. Nr. 15909... Erla build in RLM 74/75/76.
  7. Gaz, some of the early Fw 190s did have three colors applied to the upper wing...check out the machine farthest from the camera.
  8. Wow! Those are nice...very realistic!
  9. Zoukei Mura announced a D-9 in conjunction with their proposed Fw 190 series awhile ago. Supposedly the Fw 190s are still in development.
  10. Your kit is a Hasegawa multi media kit that appeared in the mid 1980s. The main air frame consisted of a new fuselage in plastic and the wings from Hasegawa's 1970s vintage Fw 190 A. The kit has nothing in common with the later tooled Fw 190 D that Hasegawa introduced much later. The fuselage has recessed panel lines, the wings have prominent raised rivet detail and rather petite raised panel lines. Even when first introduced the kit was a disappointment.
  11. Tamiya described the announcement as "Featured Releases-early 2021", indicating there may be another announcement later this year. So there is still a possibility of a new Tamiya LSP in 2021.
