PZL 42

I may be wrong, but it seems to me that one of the national markings is incorrectly imposed.

If you mean the checkerboards on the fins then I must have checked the instructions a dozen times because I was also concerned they were wrong. I also checked the same company's (IBG) PZL 37 and they are the same. Reasoning that as the producers themselves are Polish I went with their instructions, but I still have this niggle in my gut.

Thanks for bringing it up  :thumbsup:

Some may have noticed that I sometimes place my models on small bases when photographing them (sometimes if I'm honest because there isn't enough nose weight  :banghead:) anyway they are cheap coasters. I found I was running out of these this morning so popped into Poundstore and grabbed a little bundle of 6, went to the till and handed my 1 coin over only to be told they were reduced to 25p a pack. I now have 24 of the things, should see me through  ;D I might need some more scenic scatter stuff though  ;)

That'll have been a 'quarter-pounder' then?  ;D ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

And we, till now unmatched in ill,
Must leave successors more corrupted still."

~PZL.42
No one is perfect, IBG too.
1.The position lights in Pzl 37 have colored covers, the bulbs are transparent. Although the IBG claims and shows otherwise.
2.The upper part of the pilot cover is light green(against the sun)


Hence the chessboard is only one: red white (main fields) at the top, white red at the bottom.

Having looked at this plus some other things I think I will over paint the markings on the inside of the tail fins.

Normally when I've been away it can take me an age to return to the fray so to speak. However this time I got back to it within a couple of days so progress has been made on the Hurricane  :thumbsup:
