Hi Linus sounds good! It's interesting to see the co-belligerent aircraft as they are not often provided for in mainstream kits. I first found out about them when I made Eduards P-39 and found markings for them in the kit, I just had to do that particular scheme because of its un-usualness (is that even a word?)! Look forward to seeing yours completed! Is the kit 1/48 scale?

I think I will go with the old school Academy Bf 109G-14 in ANR markings.

I was originally going to build her in Russian markings, but then when this campaign appeared i thought why not do her as the co-belligerent as something different. She is in 1/32.

I was wondering if it was the 1/32 scale kit Linus now I'm really very curious to see it built!

Hi Jesper great to see you here .... can't go wrong with Academy's offering it builds into a great kit. I have .... er several in my stash.

I promised pics of the Astrokit kitset so I thought I better get off my chuff and provide some. So without further ado here you are!













I'm actually thinking of building this particular kit as I haven't built any MC.200's only their MC.202 and MC.205 stable mates.

Chris,

I have a program that can do that if you want to send the image to me in a PM (michael.satin@kitmaker.net).

My thanks kind sir! I couldn't get it to sit over the Italian flag like I wanted, simply don't have the skills yet.
