    Had this kit sometime and tonight I found the missing winscreen still on the sprues :oops: .Decided to go with a 'What if' RAF version in D-day colours participating in 'Operation Overlord' ...I agree , it sounds stupid - Dam you Terry! :lol:

    Its the Italeri 1/72 kit , my kit was one realeased under the 'Bilek' label

    I can't think up a theory for this as the 190D-9 only went into production in August 1944 so its kinda BS but to save the trouble lets just say the RAF managed to capture one before then and produce a squadron of them for service . Hawker was given this task and following their series of fighters the Hurricane ,Typhoon ,Tempest , this became the 'Hawker Cyclone' I know its silly :oops:

    Underway tonight , nice cockpit detail on this kit , the fuselage halves need help .They are badly bent due to the kit being a bag kit . I've glued the lower halves of the engine cowling together and once thats dried tomorrow will bring the rest of it into line .

    Some pics

    Great idea Daniel, and should look good mate. You not putting it in the 'What if?' thread though? That fuselage is a bit un-straight mate! It should be ok if you tape it tightly when glued though. Looking forward to the next part mate.
