Unlike '131' I would paint '141', '142' and others from the first batch of 501 in Graugrun/Olivgrun as the Restayn Ilustration: Ron
Kinda strange to see an american airplane with an swastika on it's tail.

Indeed they do.;) We are the living proof. Hussa for that.
Thanks Hagen. That was my estimation as well. Great minds think alike Klaus! lol
Wonder if you could really sell something like that. What kind of a freak would by it
Thanks Hagen. That was my estimation as well. Maybe I'll buy it myself. Starting a new collection. As if I got any space left...
FYIDragon has a new Tiger I coming out in September, a 1. Kp., s.Pz.Abt. 501 "Tunisian" Tiger. There's not much info, but see here: http://www.dragonusaonline.com/item_detail.aspx?ItemCode=DRA6608 Maybe this one will allow mor...
Definitely take everything into consideration, you sir have been so far the most civil of all those that I conversed with . Thanks for the offer but just keep in the stash, it might be double or triple in value soon . In the other places you bette...
How would you rate the model masters paint accuracy wise ? Sorry but no idea, never used it. Although I'm a Brit, I live in Turkey and you can't get it here. Almost all my Tamiya, Humbrol and Vallejo I bring with me from trips to UK, tho...
One of the main and most important Allied bombers, the B-17 was sparked interest and greed target of Germans and Japanese during WW2. Inevitably some planes were captured and tested by the enemy. I share with you the link below that has some photos of these planes, some rare, with German and Japanese markings. To see the photos, visit the link below:

Still a Holy Grail Tiger (for me) even though I've just built '222' from schw.Pz.Abt 504 as a conversion from the 6252 Initial (Murphy's Law!),
It can be built as a schw.Pz.Abt 504's '131', a schw.Pz.Abt 502 or a 505 vehicle OOB, using parts rom the latest Wittmann S04 kit it is a superb one to add to the collection!
Plenty of easy conversion potential as well for just about any late January to early March 43 Tiger 1 ("conversion, what's that?") using a minimum of parts from the Dragon bin.

Sugar Loaf Hill was a small, insignificant-looking mound, barely 50 feet high and about 300 yards long, situated on the southern end of Okinawa. It was part of a triangle of strongpoints set up by the Japanese defenders designed to delay and damage the attacking American forces. The other two points of the triangle were the higher terrain of Shuri Heights and an irregular-shaped set of hills that Marines called the Half Moon.
The Sixth Marine Division was given the task of taking the mound called Sugar Loaf, and it would prove costly. By the time the area was considered secure, 1,656 Marines would be dead and another 7,429 wounded. Regiments were reduced to company strength, and companies to platoon size. Platoons and squads simply ceased to exist in some cases. It took 11 tries during a 12-day period and ate up most of three regiments before the hill was taken.
