Could I please ask for your help as this Do24 doesn't make me life easy.
The kit is provided with decals for two aircraft: VH + ID for an aircraft from the 106th Küstenfliegergruppe and KD + BH for an aircraft of a no further described Seenotgruppe in Syracuse 1943.
I always like to check out my references and I like to build an aircraft that really existed.
So now I encounter a small mistery by NOT finding any references at all regarding both aircraft.
On this special site:
are no known references for any of the aircraft as in the kit.
and when I check out Küstenfliegergruppe 106 than do I find some references to that unit but none to any Do24; instead they only speak of Do18.
I also bought the new book written by Peter de Jong "Dornier Do 24 Units" edited by Osprey series Combat Aircraft nr 110 but no referece to those aircraft either, no pictures, no markings, no profiles, nothing.......
I therefore would like to ask if any one of you guys out there could provide me with some new refereces. Can someone prove that one or both of these aircraft really existed and did fly with those units??????
The units did exist but the registration markings on both aircraft are a big question mark. I'm not used that Italaerei would release something with "would-be" markings but you never know, it's an old kit and maybe it wasn't so important in those days.
If nobody can help me I will be obliged to add some markings of an aircraft that did fly in those units and that is proven to be historically correct.
