    i think the top most one could be a Russian Pe-2, the one below might be a Russian Il-4 ?

    Top one could also be a Tu-2. Any way of getting a closer shot? If those are sitting on what I think it is, the diecasts must be very small.

    They are 1/432 Pewtercraft. (I collect them)
    Sadly this is the only pic I have, I was trying to get them on ebay but I goofed on the end time and missed it. :cry:

    I'm trying to figure out what I lost out on. :evil:

    The bottom one looks American, could it be an A-30? (Martin Baltimore)

    Top one either a Pe2, or maybe supposed to be a Bf110. Middle I think Martin B10, bottom possibly supposed to be a Douglas Boston/A-20.

    I thought about a Bf110 also Terry, but I guess we will never know.

    My opinion... the top one is Pe-2 ( it can't be the Tu-2 rathre. The bomber had two gunner stations at the top of the fuselage.) the second one looks like the Il-4 and I agree with Terry on the bottom one that looks like a Douglas Boston/A-20.
