Hello Forum, "within the build is before the built" I read some in the world wide web - I think somewhere aftmost left. .Some minutes before I was able to lay my hand on this beauty - also I payed much too much for her* burt I will plan much more that i jumped in with the Camel F.1. So this'll be at the very beginning a research thread swinging to a building an asking for help thread later on. Here the technical drawing for those who are interested in such stuff: And there is certainly a question of the colour sheme - I love this "British Post Red" as I remember it from my London trip once up on a time called it. Is this the "right" red - or is it too dark? Now to my questions - and as a newby I've got a lot of this I can't figure out when these coloursheme was used - okay before 1940 (then I found pictures in the pacific darkblue and sky light grey pattern). a) Is it right when I'll call her "1445" after her number on the tail? Or is the hull's side number "5-F-1" crucial? The coloursheme of the Revell kit semms to be the same as her's and the squadron symbol might be the same. What is the right Squadron my beauty belongs to? Was theirtimes there a sqaudron-colour or was it a a carrier-colour? c) If I say - okay red is nice but I want to bring the VB-2 "Big bad Wolf" on here hull - what do I have to do at the markings and to her colouring? I just learnd by http://wp.scn.ru that this was a Bomber Squadron not a VF for Fighter one So there apearce onn the far horizon the question if there might be a biplane Helldiver Curtiss SBC 1/32 kit... ...or if not - is it possible to built the SB2C back to a biplane? Could I take the measurements from the 1/72 Heller or the Matchbox kit? Thanks for your intrest and patience with a questioning greenhorn in here! ____________________________ *but with kits it seems to be like with kids and women you falt in love to...
