I have often wondered about where/when the Spanish Emils received their overall 63 uppersurfaces... well, this pic is pretty freakin' conclusive that they were repainted after delivery. Not sure what airbase this is at, but we've got three Emils on the ramp, having just been sprayed in 63; the fuselage octane triangle has been applied to the center one before the masking was even taken off of the canopy!




This just in: the Internet is still awesome.

Franco ordered them painted pink and blue in honer of Goering! I have a copy of a letter from Franco to an American, who I know, acknowledging it. The famous Franco-American letter.

Uh Oh Spaghetti Os

But they are Es. Not Os!







There is no such thing as an unbuildable kit, just some kits one may consider not worth building.

Ive realized that most people ... tend not to be direct when they feel something is shoddy because they want to be liked, "which is actually a vain trait".

LOL.

Figured you would like these... the second pic looks like they're spraying the black stripe at the wingroot. Damn shame we couldn't get a closeup of the Werk Nummers.
