  1. 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.
  2. Vast majority of F-4s had the round wheel wells, G-2 reverted to the earlier style common to F-2, and E series.
  3. 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.
  4. Here are two photos of W. Nr. 15909... Erla build in RLM 74/75/76.
  5. Gaz, some of the early Fw 190s did have three colors applied to the upper wing...check out the machine farthest from the camera.
  6. Wow! Those are nice...very realistic!
  7. Zoukei Mura announced a D-9 in conjunction with their proposed Fw 190 series awhile ago. Supposedly the Fw 190s are still in development.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. As Damian states the early version of RLM 79 was very light and yellow. In the photo below the upper surfaces are 79 but the lower cowls are yellow...
  11. Since the original post concerned an aircraft and modeling it is more relevant to the theme of LSP than a lot of what is posted in the General Discussion. Also consider that the most likely source of new large scale modelers is someone who is already engaged in some aspect of modeling. Perhaps positive responses would help in recruiting new converts from the smaller scales.
  12. As far as 1/48 scale P-40 E my preference is Hasegawa. I suggest you check out Scalemates , for reviews and links to other P-40 kits.
  13. Fw 190 D-9 Werk Nummer 500570 of 8./JG 6 - "Blue 12" surrendered at F├╝rth. Short video here
