  1. "Members of the 25th Fighter Squadron demonstrate what Close Air Support is all about, from the seat of an A-10C." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4LOGfuuugc&feature=youtu.be
  2. You get both a Felixstowe 2a and a Hansa-Brandenburg W.29(!): http://www.wingnutwings.com/ww/608AA6CB2F8125DDA31A424D035A5BEA
  3. In no particular order... Nieuport 28 SPAD S.XIII Albatros D.III
  4. Appreciate the feedback guys! Here are couple pics with it in Dunkelgelb. I used a primer coat of AK Interactive's Primer Black (awesome stuff), then applied AK Interactive's RAL 7028 Dunkelgelb.
  5. Added a couple Fireflies (plus metal barrels) to the growing armor stash...
  6. It has been a while, but at least I have been busy. And now I am finally ready for an update... Here are some pics of the mostly complete panzer (as far as assembly). I still have to assemble the tracks, permanently attach the road wheels and sprockets, add the tow cables, and attach the spare track links to the front of the hull: On to the painting... Speaking of which, I have decided on a scheme: a tri-color Pz.IV G from the 20th Pz.Div. in 1943. So, no schürtzen but it will have the L/43 gun. Hopefully, the next update will be sooner rather than later. (It has to be; my M48A3 is languishing on the shelf waiting to be finished.) Thanks for looking!
  7. Not a lot of progress, but made it through Step 3 and have some pics to share... I should have more soon, especially since most of the tedious, repetitive work is complete (wheels & sprockets & related). That is, until those crazy magic tracks.
  8. Great start, James! Have you picked out a scheme?
  9. Wow - I appreciate all of the interest, guys! I love the scheme illustrated in the box art as well, and I may go with that one (schürtzen and all ). But then again, I really want to do a three tone scheme so I can take advantage of the new-fangled AK Interactive German War Colors (1937-1944): http://www.ak-interactive.com/DetalleProducto.aspx?idDetalle=AK560&Pagina=./Productos.aspx?iPage=0&CCat0=010000&CCat1=010020&CCat2=010022&iPxP=21#.Uz_rT_ldU1I Bison Decals has a few schemes in one of their releases as well, but I want to stay in the box as much as possible. Speaking of in-the-box, the part count is indeed insane, but I think most of them can be attributed to the magic tracks. I've never used magic tracks before; they look like they were made to drive a man insane. So, I may go with some aftermarket tracks. Anyway, I should have some actual progress to post later this weekend.
  10. I've decided to build DML's Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.G Apr-May '43 Production (6594): There are ten different schemes to choose from, and I have no clue which one I am going to pick. I do need to decide before adding the barrel since a couple schemes L/43. Currently, I'm leaning towards the L/48. Bigger is better, right? There's also choices to be made in turret type and schürzen: Yes or No?
  11. That Pz.IIII L does look sweet. I thought about going with DML's Tiger I Initial Production [6600] which is in my stash, but as noted above, thought that Tigers would be well represented. So, I went with the Pz.IV G. Speaking of which, I need to create a thread for it...
  12. I'm all in for this group build with DML's Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.G Apr-May '43 Production (6594): There are ten different schemes to choose from, and I have no clue which one I am going to pick... In the meantime, here is a good review with multiple pics: http://www.modelarmour.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1400:dragon-pzkpfwiv-ausfg-apr-may-43&catid=37:kits&Itemid=60
  13. Tamiya makes the Mk. III/IV with three NA schemes, and there is at least one aftermarket markings option available for Soviet schemes: http://store.spruebrothers.com/product_p/ech352018.htm
  14. Is the reward for completed entries, or just entries? I would assume the former... as an aside, I do plan to get back to my Fokker VII build.
  15. My buddy just sent me this link, and I thought what better place to share it... The collection includes 92 manuals in total. They display in the browser, or you can print/download each manual. Lots of great research material here: http://www.scribd.com/collections/3745342/Luftwaffe-Manuals-1939-1945
