  6. Brian, I really like the camouflage scheme!

  7. Very nice work on this. Good paint work.

    Did Tamiya ever straighten out the wing on their kit? When they made this kit from the D-9 at the USAF museum, it still had the D-13 wing with the single ejection port in the center lower section.

    A note for folks about color. What has been called "Braunviolett" ("brown-violet) is actually a color that began life as something approximating US olive drab. Since sun fading in the ETO only took place above the clouds, where there was increased U-V radiation, the violet came out - what's thought of as "Braunviolett" is the faded result, which looks (again) very close to the result seen on B-17s and B-24s that also sun-faded at high altitude. The reason it happened so quickly on German airplanes (this model looks really right, and Black 10 is known to have been with JG 26 for less than three months in the winter of 1945) as opposed to US airplanes that don't show it so extreme unless they're 80-mission+ planes, was due to poor German paint quality. HTH

  8. Great Dora and an interesting and excellent paint job. Well done, Brian.

  9. Really like the way your Dora looks Brian. Well done.
