Recommended Posts

I picked up this book on Tuesday at King’s Hobby for $32.99. It contains profiles for 19 BoB subjects as well as three sheets of decals in 1/32, 1/48, and 1/72. First come the

 

Spitfires: LOoG, 602 sqdn

QJoP, 96 sqdn

QVoI, 19 sqdn

 

Nurricanes: DToH, 257 sqdn

NNoD, 310 (Polish) sqdn

GZoB, 32 sqdn

RFoG, 303 (Czech) sqdn

WXoW, 302 (Polish) sqdn

VYoR, 85 sqdn

 

109’s: E-1 ‘Red 14’ 5./JG 52

E-3 ‘Black 11’ 5./JG 3

E-3 ‘Black 1’ 5./JG 51 (I’m not sure if yellow background on the ‘Sniffling

Raven’ staffel symbol is correct.)

E-4 ‘Yellow 5’ 9./JG 3

E-4 ‘Black 6’ 2./ JG 51

E-4 ‘White 9’ 1./JG 2

E-4 ‘Black Chevron’ III./JG 53

I’m happy because I can mix and match codes to build George Unwin’s QVoH! :beer:

Sorry Greg I couldn't resist, and if you've a Manc mate you'll know our sense of humour, though it took me back to my childhood as oftentimes kids would call them Nurricanes - priceless!

Just one question: wich of the abovementioned schemes are covered in the 1/32 decal sheet? All of them?

 

Hello Thierry,

 

Yes, all markings are in three scales. There are only codes, serials and squadron symbols. National marking must come from the kits or other sources.

 

Salud!

Kent very kindly pointed out to me that this book has some ErpGr210 - woo-hoo!

 

now can anyone tell me where this book is available from in UK / Europe?

 

Amazon says it's coming in December, but given you already have it in your hands in the US, i know it's "out there" somewhere!

 

i have done quite a bit of googling and all i keep coming up with is the Part I book

 

any ideas?

 

cheers

Hi Nick,

Ordered mind direct from Kagero few days ago for 22.5 euros (don't have euro key on keyboard)

Here: http://sklep.kagero.pl/product_info.php?products_id=1013

 

Bit of a chore to order.

The secret is to register and wait for an e-mail to activate your account and THEN order.

I tried to do it immediately after registering and it threw a bit of a wobbler!

 

HTH

ah yes, i too appear to be "mid wobbler"!!

:speak_cool:

 

i don't know why i haven't bought these books before, given they are only a bit more expensive than some of the decal sets out there, and they will have better reference material / pics than most decal sets

 

yes, once again, i prove to myself i am a dufuss!!
