I'm not a linguist

Response to Do not get me wrong

Nor a native English speaker, nor Czech...

But Jens, you are right about the "Czechoslovakian wolfdog" whereas it seems to be "Czechoslovak air force" - it also seems to be "Czechoslovakian display" versus "Czechoslovak legion" - maybe it is a gender thing, but I'm not a linguist and I rather break my head on finding a good shade of blue for my Pinto happy.gif

Anyway, a good tip is consulting Wikipedia or simply running the words through Google and see which turns up the most hits : "Czechoslovak air force" (436.000 hits) against "Czechoslovakian air force" (180.000 hits") - not completely waterproof, but a good indicator...

Thanks for the interest

Just like the perfect woman doesn't exist, I will never build a perfect model.

HyperScale's Group Build Guidelines

The objective of this Group Build is to encourage as many modellers as possible to build their kits and share their progress via words and photos on this Forum.

You are welcome to post general construction tips or relevant reference information and photos to this Forum too.

This Group Build will feature WWI Aircraft Kits.

  1. This Group Build will run until 31 December, 2011.

  2. Build as many kits as you like.

  3. Conversions, aftermarket and scratchbuilding are all permitted.

  4. Any markings are acceptable.

  5. Document your progress and do a write-up on your build - where did you have trouble, what improvements did you make, what markings did you choose and why? It would be GREAT if everyone would do a writeup and submit it to HyperScale as a Feature Article.
