    My third entry is a Tamiya G-14 out of box keeping it simple with only ED belts added to both kits.She will sport 74/75 top with 76 below.This crate will not support the white badges on the upper wing but the instead the RSI insignia but will retain the black badges down below.This G-14 will hvae a white spinner with a black spiral;mottling looks medium all the way through to the tail in 74/75

    Cool! Looking forward to your build. You can't go wrong with choosing to build a Bf 109.

    You know Wayne you are right.Cheers Kevin

    Dan I did pick up my first book on the MC 202 the other day from Squadron but nothing as good as that.I have a hard time with the internet being available as it is to go buy research.In saying that I did the other day p/u a book on 100 of the greatest battles and 3 mags on battles of WWII.I like to read tactics and manuvers along of course with the blunders if the battlfield can be kept fairly small.I have successfully wandered off the path :)

    Does that help at all? It's not a G-14 but it is 3rd Sqd, II Gruppo. The source was the ANR camo book, page 126.

    Thks Kgambit but not quite the mottling looks a little light while the colors appear to maybe be correct though.These two builds are really going to be OOB with only the PE belts added and what I hope to be super paint schemes and decals.I am attacking these like I do 1/72 with the astedic(sp) qualities high on the list.The wings on both and other small assemblies went together last night.Cheers Kevin

    No problem Kevin. It's the only 3 Sqd, 2nd Gruppo plane I could find in the ANR reference book. Thought it was a long shot but you never know. :D

    No. The ANR was formed after the Armistice between Italy and the Allies in early September 1943. The ANR didn't exist as such prior to that. :D

    Prior to September '43, you would want references on the Regia Aeronautica. :D Squadron Signal publications has a two volume reference on the RA - one dating from 1940 to 1943 and another one post-43, but I think both volumes are out of print.
