Exclamation

Okay, folks. Poll is still open, but I'd like to announce something that you'll get earlier.

It's a Hawker Hurricane Mk.IIa - Dutch East Indies 1942 (similiar to the one in attachment)
Almost completed. Release soon!

There are lots of possibilities for recolors of ML-KNIL (Netherland East Indies Army Air Force) and MLD (NEI Naval Air Service recolors).

I think Buffalos in NEI colors are available in various scales and Roman Vasyliev once did a Curtiss CW-21b in NEI colors. Aaron Murphy designed a Martin B-10 for FG, and Scott Fyn and/or Aaron would probably give permission for a recolor. gerard1938 designed a Douglas DB8A-3N (export A-17) in ML-KNIL markings and a Dorner 24K in MLD markings (not the orange/black triangle, but the tricolor rectangle used after the opening of hostilities and before NEI aircraft were remarked with RAAF roundels (Brewster Buffalo in the East Indies Dutch markings).

The Dutch flew a lot of different airplanes in the NEI. They are listed in this Wiki article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_...Army_Air_Force and most of them show up in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_9CQPAS3CM

Dutch air operations in Burma, 1942: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rq50X2PUpTs&t=10s

This Wiki article on the 1941-42 campaign in the NEI has a bibliography with books on air operations in the NEI: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dutch_...ndies_campaign

And these two websites are useful: Camouflage & Markings: Colours of the Dutch Air Force (Part II)
http://www.adf-serials.com.au/research/nei.htm

Apologies for the diversion, Kacper, but I thought you and the others would find this info useful, and it provides info for possible future recolors.

Don

And once again DB blows us all away with his in depth knowledge. The history of the Dutch in early WWII is all but forgotten. Thank you so much.

Don
I second that idea.Interesting bomber but that yellow/blue livery ... Dutch or Chinese would make much more interesting theme imho.

Correction of that model is also in advisable-proportions of some parts are way out there.

Do both... Haiti is my native land and finding out that Haiti operated "any" warplane for "any" period of time is a welcomed and appreciated. I would love to have it in my collection. But I also want the Corsair! So do both.
