Steve Wilson Hi Kas...
Interesting...
How did you manage to set the pics out in this manner??? :S
27. July 2013, 18:37
Kas Grigonis Hi Steve.
I just added them all into a new project.
27. July 2013, 19:16
Steve Wilson Gosh!!!
You learn something new everyday don't you :o :)

Stefan Schneider Very interesting project with a lot of unusual subjects. I would really like to see some of them finished.
27. July 2013, 21:34
Kas Grigonis I haven't even completed the list yet Stefan ;) You're right about the unusual subjects too. That's what made me decide it would be really interesting to do. Going to be difficult to find some as well. Will have to scratch build at some point.

Botan T Very interesting project, I'm also planning to make planes from Baltic states (and tanks) from interwar period. May I ask You about something? Martinsyde F.4 Buzzard from Omega Models have decals for one or for both Lithuanian planes?
6. September 2015, 16:01
Kas Grigonis @Krzysztof T It only has decals for one aircraft as I recall. If you're after Lithuanian decals, the two best sources I found were Blue Rider who have decals and an excellent CD-ROM History for all of the Baltic States, and also Arctic Decals who produce a number of very rare civilian aircraft decals.
7. September 2015, 00:13
Botan T Thank you very much for response. Fortunately I already have Blue rider decals. I bought Buzzard from AZ models with Latvian decals, unfortunately those are useless, so I was thinking about making Lithuanian one instead, I can mask and paint crosses, but descriptions are impossible for me to do so, I hoped Omega kit have two variants of them, for both planes.
PS. Fortunately there was a nice book about Lithuanian Air Force published in Polish.
7. September 2015, 07:33
Kas Grigonis I have that book. I have scanned the book and when I get time, I will try and translate it into English. Unfortunately, I'll have to do it with Google translate so it will take a while!
7. September 2015, 14:11
Botan T So You have Rezmer book? That's surprising. Unfortunately from my experience Google Translate works not well with Polish and if you have no experience with Slavic language, then it will be even harder. I can help if you need some informations and such.
7. September 2015, 18:23
Kas Grigonis Yes. I bought it online from a UK supplier. I've done some test translations and they're not too bad. There are the occasional words or phrases that it can't figure out, so if I can get help with them every once in a while it would be very much appreciated. Let me know if there is anything else I can do in return.
8. September 2015, 03:09
Botan T OK, when needed I will PM to you.
8. September 2015, 08:38
Łukasz Gliński Interesting project - will have a look from time to time :)

Botan T I have a old Huma model of Klemm Kl35B and decals from Blue Rider for Lithuanian model, and so a new one appeared from AZ model (with decals for Lithuanian plane) z15.invisionfree.com/72nd_Aircraft/index.php?showtopic=7286
10. September 2015, 14:04
Kas Grigonis Hahahaha!!! I have the same Huma Huma kit, 2 Blue Rider Lithuanian decal sets and also a set by Arctic Decals! :D

Thanks for the link! Now I'll have to buy that one too!!!!
