The dates represent the two occasions where the pilot (Horst Carganico) had to walk back to German lines after being forced down, once to engine failure and once to fighter action.

Hey Mark,


Horst Carganico on two occasions went down behind enemy lines and had to walk back to his base.  On one of these occasions he was bare foot.  The date has been mentioned in my reference as being a possible date to which he was had to walk back with out his shoes/flying books.  


The reference here is Luftwaffe Fighters and Fighter Bombers over the Far North.  Authors Andreas Brekken and Kjetil Akra. 

There are several pictures of Herr Carganico’s aircraft and all had the port side Micky mouse character painted on the side.

i have a picture in another reference where Horst is strolling into his base shoeless and grinning.

Thanks guys!  Especially the additional info on Horst Carganico's Mickey Mouse markings!


Work continues on the G-6.  The exhausts have been painted.  Alclad Steel sprayed straight onto the resin as a base.  Tinted with Alclad Exhaust Manifold, drybrushed with some rusty reddish brown color and then the tips were sprayed black.


After the starboard side decals were completed, I sprayed the model with a light coat of Alclad Aqua Gloss.


I use a custom-mixed, water-based pastel wash.  All of the past riveting, filling and re-scribing comes to the surface.


After the applied wash is dry, the model is wiped clean with a damp paper towel.  It's funny that its called a wash when you are actually dirtying up things.


I'm going to let this sit for a day.  Before the wash is sealed with a clear coat, it's good to step away and then come back to make sure you clean off all of the wash.  Some inadvertent stains are good, others will detract so I'll take a look with fresh eyes tomorrow.


I love the look of the AMUR Reaver G-6/AS cowling.  It has those bulged muscular proportions that made the DB605 aircraft so cool.
