  1. Very nicely done. This is a project that I've been wanting to do myself. Been trying to gather information, but there is not a heck of a lot out there on these 2 seater spotter planes. I picked up a Mini World Russian mg for the back of the cockpit and have been looking for some good drawings to replicate the interior of the Hurricane. As Miggers mentioned, the rear spotter sat on a sling, that should be easy enough to scratch build. I come across a few other builds online. I think everyone has had a tough time finding out information on this one.
  2. Further, I do not think the 2 sets that I have are "one offs" as the same image of the sprues that I received in my kits is on Eduard's website for this kit (Eduard kit #2122) :
  3. Well, that was my first thought, but if you look at the last picture (which is from Eduard's Rammjager kit), you will see the differences, there are quite a few. The wing in the kits I have is almost like some bastardized version of several wing types. If those additional rectangular openings weren't there, then I'd say is was the "smooth wings" type (which I think it is supposed to be), but someone at Eduard dropped the ball here, I really do not know. I have tried messaging Eduard for an answer, but they have been very quiet and not replied.
  4. In follow up, it's almost like someone punched those additional openings in the mold in error. I am at a loss on this one. 🤔
  5. I recently bought 2 Eduard #2122 1/72 Grunherz kits. While going through the instructions and sprues, one of them, for an Fw.190A-8 does not appear to belong, it is unique to this boxing only, it appears on Eduard's website's images for the set, BUT, this sprue does not match anywhere in the instructions. For that matter, I can not even find this exact sprue in any of Eduard's other Fw.190A kits: It's the circled rectangular openings. This wing is almost like a hybrid or mix-up cross between their Fw.190A smooth wing and the Fw.190A-8/R2 wing - even then, not a complete match: Fw.190A-8 standard wing: Fw.190A-8/R2 wing: 1\ I've written to Eduard for more information, but in the mean time, I had hoped that someone here could explain this for me.
  6. Does anyone know of a source for kits from a Russian company called "Modelist"? TIA.
  7. Thanks Paul. PM incoming.
  8. Seeing if any one has the Academy 1/72 Hurricane Mk.IIc kit to spare. I can trade or buy. Thanks.
  9. Nicely done. I do find it a little odd that you display your 262 on a base with the swastika, yet you do not have them on the tail. Makes your kit look somewhat "incomplete"
  10. If I may offer a suggestion / alternative on the ball bearings. I purchased several small containers of Umarex 4.5 mm (.177) steel BBs. Each container was under $7.00 Canadian and gives you 1500 BBs per bottle. Similar experience that they are a little too large for the Humbrol tinlets (but in a pinch, I could make do). They are ideal for the Tamiya, Model Master, AeroMaster and other similar sized paint bottles. FWIW...
  11. I checked out the airbrush manufacturer. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it is not an overly expensive airbrush and, judging by your kit, it gives excellent results. I think I will have to get one myself. The Bartsharp 180 offers some very fine tips, which one do you have? I am inclined to go with the 0.2mm tip for 1/72 use - thoughts?
  12. Well done with such a fantastic paint job! Can you tell me what type of airbrush do you use?
  13. All things considered right now, it would be a wise move to cancel or at least postpone it.
  14. Humbrol #240 is RLM 02 and Humbrol #79 should work for RLM 66. Hope this helps.
