    Sorry, but Champions League football (soccer) kept me away from my computer. So I didn't succeed to upload the file before my deadline. However there is more, as a sharp fellow member noticed. The Airfix model came with B roundels (see pictures below). However when you look closely at the black and white picture which shows K6285 and the R9742 in formation, you will see the real aircraft had type A roundels on the wing instead of the B roundels as supplied with the kit and which were already standard in autumn 1940. The roundels on the R9742 (in the back) even seem to be in the "old" position close to the wing tips. Thers is also a difference between the roundels on the fuselage from the R9742 and those on the K6285. The wings also had 2 yellow squares on them which were painted with...

    Thank you DL. I added the orange chevrons to the 164 pilot's head gear based on the photo I had. Glad you like it. VA-93 will be up later today. I'm going ahead with the 212 bird with a different side number since I had already created a new shield and did a few hours research before I knew there were others out there. Also have an "F" in the works of VA-113 Stingers which they only flew for a short time before converting to A-7Bs.

    and as a painter who can and has done it in all possible ways (original textures, white textures, paintkit), I can say that I very much appreciate a paintkit. It makes life easier, and in some cases, the end results better. I do not demand a paintkit, but if a model is very difficult to paint (due to complex textures and/or the lack of a paintkit), I may decide not to buy it. No problem, there are lots of models that are easy to paint, with great paintkits that I still don't buy because the aircraft does not interest me. So, if I was a developer, I would like it if people are tempted to buy my creation, and if paintable textures or a paintkit help, why not include them? and Baz "When I started painting there was no such thing as a paintkit. You learned to do it yourself going...

    Instead of the K6285 I decided to do the N9742, as this is the one from the Airfix kit. As said it is just a quick edit. But for those who want it, I will try to upload it tomorrow (evening in my time-zone)

    Which is hardly surprising since this aircraft (PH-NVF) was badly damaged during a belly landing at the airport of Addis Abeba, Ethiopia, on March 9, 1959. Cause of the accident was a premature rotation during the take off run. Cheers, Maarten

    Hey, Mike, 2 problems with that particular skin (for me anyway). The green fuselage banner won't work because of the texture stretching near the top of the fuselage, and as far as I could find, VBA-305 never flew the E or F, only the C and L. ========================== Thanks, D_L. Let me see what I can do with that. That is actually one I was considering!

    The third F-27 prototype, same location; this one appears to have a lot more (Visible) rivets in the nose section: Don't be fooled by the Fokker 50 name, this F50 prototype is a converted F27, you can still see a large oval window that was painted over right of the Fokker logo:

  1. Hello Maarten :-)

    Wow! That would be great. I'll send you the address in a PM.

    Thank you very much! :-)

    Milton


    Hi Milton,

    Hope you're well.

    I realized to day that I have a very interesting e-book on my hard disk entitled "Stoof Driver - Flying the Grumman S-2 Tracker" by Mike Ray (private publication, 2003). It is about 300 pages "thick" and contains a treasure of photos, colour and b/w, many of great quality. Not only of the "Stoof" (S-2) but also the FUDD (E-1 Tracer). if you are interested I will be more than happy copying it for you and the project.

    Just let me know and send me your address so I can send it really quickly to you if you want it.

    Best regards,
    Maarten Brouwer
