Late War RLM usage of 81/82, etc.

Recommended Posts

File under "taking my ball and going home".   Never ceases to amaze me that grownups could actually get heated over something as trivial as the proper application of paint on an airplane. 

 

Ahh well, I'm sure this thread will persevere.

The topic of paint history and the technicalities of it's application can be an interesting discussion.

Replicating it accurately on a model is something entirely different and can be confusing and rather inconclusive to some people.

...and just because one guy said that you are packing up?  If those ar the other guys only aguments...well, just let him be. I am not a native english speaker either and when I hear something like that I always tell myself that my english (your english) is a thousend times better then their French or German... ;-)

I would love to hear more from you on that paint subject. So hopefully you have saved your posts and maybe after having had some time to swallow down the anger you will restore them.

BTW...one big advantage to not being only an engish speaker but in my case a German...I did some research on the correct US ARMY vehicle paint in WWII (I own a GMC truck) and I just rang Mr. Jürgen Kiroff in Fürth...who is also realy good in RLM colors, RAL colors, etc...to get some paint mixed up following the FS number I had, and what was meant to be 10min call ended up in a super educational 2h phone call...with lot's on insight into not only the color tones but more the recepies and the resources used to make paint in WWII ( "Kernesammlung", etc... )

 

cheers

another thread that implodes. 

 

Get a grip guys its a piece of plastic, glue and paint, that REPRESENTS a plane. 

 

 

In this case I think you are only half way correct...yes, it just a model, but this thread was not really about modelling, it was a historical research topic that might as well have happend in a forum about old planes or chemistry. This is one of the main drivers, at least for me, to do modelling. While I do it I dive into history and learn mor about it. I just spent 120EUR combined on just two book...on a very narrow subject...in order to make a 15EUR kit look a bit more athentic (I hope).

Researching history is a main aspect of the hobby, the time when kids built toys for most of us is nothing but sweet memory...

 

cheers

Radu's right.

 

So, in the interests of board harmony, can we draw a line under our previous disagreement and move on?

Some of us are interested in the subject for its own sake, and not just to facilitate the assembly and accurate (hopefully) representation of the colours and finishes of a particular period.

 

I found a really interesting thread over on 12 O'clock High which is just like one of our modelling discussions about colour... just that this concerns a real Me 163...   http://forum.12oclockhigh.net/showthread.php?t=10115

 

So, in many ways we, as interested modellers, are actually working alongside the guys restoring the real aircraft (maybe somewhat ahead of them in some cases... :) ).
