    Pacific P-47 Question

    I was thinking this would be a yes, or no question. I'll post a pic of the tank I have with the kit,as I can't tell if it's a Brisbane or Republic tank in the kit.
  2. Hey all, Can anyone tell me if the square belly drop tank was used on P-47's in the PTO? Thanks, Dave

    BF-109 Gun Pack

    Were they of any use against ground target like the JU-87's 37mm gun packs, or was the BF-109 used much in this role?

    BF-109 Gun Pack

    I've been do a bit of reading on the BF-109 of late but can't really figure out when and why the Gun packs were used. Can anyone shed some light on this for me. Were they used for ground attack, used on anything after the F model? Thanks for any info.
  5. O.K.,I got the GB bug and may as well join this one as well if that's fine. I'll do Platz's 1/144 F-8 OOB Marking's...not sure yet, but it will be a Mig Killer from THIS microscale decal sheet. Aftermarket, well aside from the afore mentioned decals maybe a pilot? Seeing as there are two in a kit, I may do both, but one will show up for sure. Dave
  6. O.K. I'll bite on this one for my FIRST GB. I'll be doing Platz 1/144 P-47D RazorBack OOB Markings will be Russian, specifically 225 IAP-SF Northern Fleet bottom Pic two tone grey and blue. Aftermarket stuff will be some Soviet Stars decals and perhaps a pilot. And yes I said1/144.

    camo help

    Yes, but if that were so then the top portion of the FW's spine should be in RLM 74/75, and it's not, it's in the two tone green, therefore one would assume the top of the wings should be in this as well. Mikester, would you happen to have any other niffty color profiles in that book of yours would you? I've got a BUNCH to do up and I want to do Eastern Front stuff.

  11. I've always thought Macross veritech's would look good in a splinter camo. Something like this:

    Pilot Kit in WWII

    Hey all, I'm totally ignorant about Pilot uniforms of WWII. I'm doing up some Luftwaffe fighter pilots, '43-45 and some American AAF Pacific same period and need some info on what they wore, specifically uniforms in the cockpit. I have some re-enactor pics of Luftwaffe stuff, but did they REALLY wear leather jackets in the lanes? Also, was it just Luftwaffe blue or did they have Feild Grau uniforms by then? Also, did Americans wear the Leather Jacket as ell or was it just the Tan/Khaki overalls with the May west? Thanks for any help guys. Dave

    Russian P-47 Camo

    The Osprey on "Soviet Lend Lease Aces in WW2" has a color plate of a P-47D in the VVS dark and light grey over light blue. Apparently it's backed up by photographic evidence, again mentioned in the plate description. This is the same camo on an La-7

    Russian P-47 Camo

    Hey all, Just wanted to know if anyone can help me with the two tone grey camo use on 225 IAP' P-47D's in WWII. I need top and side views on the camo. Thanks
  15. My Reply is probably redundant, but I took a quick skim of Toperczer's Osprey book on "Mig-21's in the Vietnam war". He mentions that aircraft were shipped directly from the USSR and pur together in Vietnam, so if this is so, then they would be stenciled in Russian. That being said, some were repainted, and in this case, stenciling would be painted over. Most had the camo only on the top surfaces, so anything underneath would still have stenciling in Russian. Looking at some pictures I notice that any Mig's in Silver hds stencils, any Mig's in grey usually DON'T have stencils, though I have seen some with RED stencils. I also checked Gordon and Dexter's definitive work "Mikoyan Mig-21" and it's pretty much the same. Also, I concur with the statement that Vietnamese maintenance crews read and spoke Russian, though it was a small persentage and those who didn't had Russian speaking advisers to "advise" them on what to do.
