    That was a crap landing!... lucky it did not pile in. Still, an amazing piece of work...

    Arado AR 234 as a Collector's plane.

    If you have read any of Sonderkommando Elbe's history, there was a more technical approach than just smashing into a B-24's fuselage. I'll agree that approaching a large bomber and hitting it where you want to so you can bring it down is not an easy or exact science, especially when you are at high closure speeds, but remember, the idea was 'not' to kill yourself in the process, but to survive the impact and parachute to safety. That way you can go up and do it again. Anyway, I'll leave you to research it... it certainly was not a 'Kamikaze' outfit

    Simple solution... put a time limit that the craters are active for. (work parties make the runway good again within set time period)... This makes it imperative that bombers are found on route, plus standing patrols around the local area to stop runway denial.

    How did you become addicted to WW2 aircraft ?

    As a young lad in the 60's, talking to RAF veterans, plus of course the release of the film Battle of Britain, and visiting RAF airfields on day trips.

    Would You Purchase?

    No one knows if the Pacific is next... what we do know is that it is on 'hold' until they can gather the proper info to do it justice...

  9. Dear Kermit, Be prepared for an armchair 'experten' to tell you your aeroplanes fm is incorrect within 4 hrs of your first post

    Would You Purchase?

    I would not buy any of those in the first post... can't generate the interest in the tanks either.... the only things I've seen in this thread I would scoop up tomorrow is the Fw 189, the Hurricane (obviously)... and the 156 Storch.

    Skin request: Early 109F-4 "Diamonds" skin?

    I'll be more specific... 'for me', the stock skin 'Diamonds' is close enough to that concept picture. (illustrated). But I don't doubt that one of the skinners will do a version of it for you when they see your post.
