    1:24 Trumpeter Ju87 D5 fuselage length

    So....anyone compared the 32nd scale kits yet???? Andrea, BTW, and my opinion only (others welcome to disagree and some will), accuracy counts for lots. I can forgive a millimeter here or there, but the additional fuselage length depicted here is well outside my comfort zone. Mark Proulx

    Glad I didn't opt for the 24th scale kit...though I really wanted the G! Mark Proulx

    Ok. I assumed it meant for me as you posted immediately after me.. Too many Marks I guess Mark Proulx

    Actually, I never said I had access to both kits, because I don't. Otherwise I would do so... But I am eagerly waiting for someone to do so! Mark Proulx

    Well, by looking at the side view photo and making a judgment solely on that (that is all I have at the moment), the Trumpeter kit does look to be "off". In my opinion, the stretch of the rear fuselage in error (again, based on visual sighting only and not measurement). However, I would like to compare it to plans for 100% confirmation. The "looks wrong" critique doesn't conclude the issue for me. There is too much of that on the 'net. So, at this time I am leaning towards agreeing with Andrea, but not 100% certain...yet... I wonder how the Trumpeter 32nd scale Stukas match up to Revell and Hasegawa? Mark Proulx

    First, we have to determine if Trumpeter "screwed the pooch" on the 24th scale kit. Until we do, by cross referencing to plans (or the 24th scale Airfix kit which has not rcvd critique, though it too could be faulty), we have no idea where, or if, a cut is needed... Mark Proulx

    Actually, Revell has also displayed at this show their new 1/32nd scale Fw 190 "Sturmbock". Photos available on the 'net. It is a May 2019 release. Mark Proulx

    Late War RLM usage of 81/82, etc.

    I think a typing error, as you have suggested, generated by a girl working in the EE office can be overlooked... Mark Proulx

    Agree with the above. We need to see a comparison photo of the Airfix and Trumpeter fuselage side by side to make a determination and see exactly where the problem is, if one is identified. Mark Proulx

    Stukas retained RLM 70/71/65 throughout the war. However, RLM 65 took on more of a green tint. Mark Proulx

    Ummmm….actually no. The first link takes you to RLM 76 Lichtblau. The next two links take you to Grunblau and Blaugrun, both marketed as German Late War with no reference to RLM 76. The later two greens in your link are also provided w/o RLM designation. Mark Proulx

    I have been fortunate enough to be in Jerry's "garage" on a couple of occasions...it is like going back in time and a great way to spend the day...not to mention the chat that ensues around the stuff! Mark Proulx

    Vincent, are you not doing the same that you question EE for doing by posting photos of your Dora gun covers on page 2 of this thread? Having original parts as reference counts for something (or you wouldn't have posted images yourself) and it is done in many books on aircraft camouflage and markings, German or any other nationality...

    FWIW, I have seen different cockpit components placed side by side, both painted in RLM 66, that do not match the same. Mark Proulx

    Vincents post is spot on. The lack of aircraft wasn't a problem at the end of the war, it was the lack of fuel to put into them and the skilled pilots to fly them. Mark Proulx
