  1. Interesting contrast. The reason I asked about the tank is because I've already added the 52 gallon tank a while back but I was wondering if anyone knows if it would have been attached to Beckwiths plane at some point (around the time the photos of Beckwiths aircraft were taken) as there only seems to be that 1 photo where it has the bomb attached.
  2. Obviously no one knows about those schemes then but does anyone know what shade of olive drab Beckwiths plane would have been? I know drab could vary a lot but would it have been more green than brown? I haven't got any Tamiya olive drab but I've got a tin of Tamiya XF58 olive green ... would that be ok? Also the photo above shows it carrying a bomb but does anyone know if Beckwiths aircraft would have carried the auxilliary tank at any point?
  3. Good points guys. And what about these 2 also (second and 3rd aircraft down 20th pursuit 79th FG)......
  4. The colours inside the glass panelling. Was it some model company who started putting the cockpit colour there or someone who did a profile? We'll probably never know I suppose. One of life's great mysteries!
  5. Cheers for that. Haven't seen those photos before.
  6. Thinking of painting my Hasegawa P40E soon and I quite like these 2 schemes...... https://www.super-hobby.com/zdjecia/3/1/7/3995_1-auto_downl.jpg (No.2, 20th Pursuit Group) http://www.hyperscale.com/images/az7400reviewmd_5.jpg (No.2 James O Beckwith) and Backwith's scheme again... https://hobbydb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/processed_uploads/catalog_item_photo/catalog_item_photo/image/187209/United_States_Army_Air_Force_P-40E_Warhawk_Model_Aircraft_f4c07416-8be2-4e35-8887-70f7c708b984.jpg Are the colours, markings corr
  7. I'd say just paint over it too especially as you haven't put the decals on.
  8. It's long overdue we had a new Galaxy but Roden can show their shortcomings at times. The Globemaster was ok but it had a nasty sprue attachment right on the nose so it left a nice scar in the plastic which is quite annoying. Plus a few other bad sprue attachments and lack of detail.
  9. Just checking I've got this right. From the info I've seen on the net the interior colour of a Betty was not the blue green Aotake but more of a standard green like USN or RAF green? Here's one thread explaining it........... http://cs.finescale.com/fsm/modeling_subjects/f/2/t/95921.aspx I've used Humbrol 117 so far. Is this correct?
  10. Good picture here and the spinner tip does possibly look like a different colour.......
  11. Well those are nice schemes so thanks for that. Funnily enough this reviewer of Hasegawa's kit paints half the nose red for Tarheel. http://replicainscale.blogspot.co.uk/2010_10_01_archive.html whether that's accurate or not I don't know but it's interesting what he says.
  12. Cheers for that. Sigh......looks like I can forget an authentic WW2 scheme with the red nose. There is however a scheme that's very tempting......... http://www.adf-serials.com.au/newsletter/news0804.shtml the 2nd, 6th and 7th aircraft (with the red roundels on white stars). I take it those are genuine documented schemes?
