Looking awesome Andy!  Im really digging this. Making me salivate to get my own copy. Of course for awhile, it will reside in the stash, with current difficult projects, but Ill be coming back to this thread when I do for sure. 

 

Thank you Brian, this one for me is a little like the Tigercat for you and in general its a pretty easy conversion. Perfect after a full on HpH build to be honest. Not to hard but not to simple also.

 

Regards. Andy

Hi Andy - looking good there - make sure the MG 151s in the belly are angled inwards as per my drawings otherwise the ammo belts you make will not join the weapons - thanks for posting your work

 

John

 

Hi John, thank you for looking in on my build. You have put together a really nice conversion set and hopefully I can pull it off and do some justice to it. Resin/ Etch quality has been excellent so far as has the fit.

 

Currently trying to work out the best way to  fit the upper cockpit panel with all of the frame work incleded to ease final assembly and painting. Will take a bit of time to sort but will be worth it in the end.

 

Regards. Andy

Yes Andy always easier for me making a display model without painting. I would recommend trying to make as many painted sub-assemblies as possible - keep up the good work

Andy check my instructions for the left side cockpit wall - you have added the early Shck 13 kit part which is not only wrong but will hit the ammo bin and not close - you need to use the latter part I have provided

The display model pictures are so helpful though John and probably a good sales too for you as everyone likes to see the resin they are buying if they can. Shame the old Ju 188 pics on your vendors board thread have gone after Photo bucket have had there way!!

Thanks for the heads up John but fortunately I noticed before the glue was dry and removed it. Also managed to get the oxygen regulator on the wrong ammo box in the same sitting  :doh:  all sorted now though.

Innards look fantastic.  The PE upgrades add a lot of subtle detail.

Looking good Andy! I'm tempted to buy one, but currently knee deep in the Ju388 conversion and that's taking a lot of time and research to get right. Although I recon this one should be more straightforward.
Oh and Photobucket is a **** service for hosting pictures. There are much better and more permanent options out there.

Happy building,
Wouter

The PE supplied with the upgrade set are really nice, to to thick and easy to work with.

Thanks Wouter, I could'nt resist to start it immediately even though I have the 188 convesrion on the bench as well  :frantic: but on the 188 I think I am through the major fit/ build issue's to allow me to make a start on the 110!!

Not to much modelling time over the last week and what time I have had has been studying pictures and trying to work out the best way to fit the FuG 220 rack, first effort was pretty poor and just didnt look right to me.

After a major re-think on this area I have ended up with this.

A bit of tidying up to do but much happier now, next up I need to get the pilots roll hoop intergrated with this sub-assembly so I have it all as a sub assembly to fit after painting, pretty tricky but will pay dividends upon final assembly??

 

Regards. Andy

Just caught up with this Andy, my you're a brave man being first in and showing the rest of us the pitfalls to watch out for!!  I'll be bookmarking your build and keeping a regular eye on developments.  I have to say the E that I'm building is really enjoyable, I'm expecting the G-4 to be even more so!
