Love those Kagero books...made for aircraft modelers by modelers..And beautiful decals to boot.how can you go wrong?
Thanks Bill.

 

I've got piles of their decals. I'll never live long enough to even use 5% of them though.

I really like the Cyber hobby kit...seems quite accurate...save a few points...Made my own props,what's in the kit is not acceptable... to me anyway
     Found the spinner cap a bit long ,so reshaped it and scribed a front cap line(sanded off the raised rivits) also made new blast tubes.
       The under wing radiators had a noticeable step...so cut them back and blending them into the lower wing surface(made new Rad louvers as well )
Reshaped the upper MG bulges on the engine cover as well...a bit high. outside of the new props these are just small tweaks on an otherwise decent kit.
Also found the upper wing root straps are indented on the kit...filled those and added new raised straps from thin sheet,they are raised on the real machine.

     Oh!     If you haven't yet gotten your hands on any of the "YAHU" instrument panels...do so,great looking and will save you a days work,at least.
      Cheer's for now...Bill.

Hhhhmmmmmm, should have gotten one of those Cyber Hobby kits when I had a chance. Of course you're making it look absolutely brilliant. Fantastic as always Bill.

Thanks for the cockpit colour clarification as well.

Cheers,
Wolf

Just amazing work! About those Yahu IP's -- they look fabulous, but they're like $30? Bit too pricey for me!

Thanks a bunch guys...and for following along.
And Shaka..only paid 11.00 bucks for the Yahu Instrument panels...Sprue Brothers...bought several,Spit,Hurricane,Tempest.
At 11.00$ they are a steal.you honestly would be hard pressed to duplicate the detail.
Cheers my friend.

Looks nice Bill, thanks for the rundown.

Just an FYI, that wasn't a blast tube on the E,

there were no engine mounted cannons on any

pre F 109s except an experimental one.

Thanks Mike......Even if the gun wasn't used or mounted it is a cannon blast tube nonetheless,sorry.
The initial design was for a cannon,but was unpopular due to recoil problems..
Good God I'm starting to sound like Jennings.
