  1. It's just surreal. One of the best scratchbuilding sessions I've ever seen.
  2. As regards the drawing, no hurry... I'd definitely like to try drawing something like that myself. I'm not going to purchase a CNC machine, I'll have the parts made by a modelers-friendly company. I'd just have to mail them the Autocad file and they'll take care of the rest. The beetle kit is a mix between Revell's 2013 moulding of the "limousine" and its 2013 moulding of the convertible. Only by mixing parts such as bumpers, tail lights etc. will I be able to achieve a realistic effect. I've been scratching a full new rear suspension and that's been a lot of fun. The kit numbers are 07083 a
  3. The build is currently at a standstill. I was trying out some things and they really didn't go well. So I decided I'd take on an intermediary practice project and that's something completely different: a VW Beetle. Of course that's got to be detailed also. But better to make some errors and deficiencies there than at a multiple years-project such as the 111. Meanwhile I've decided that in order to maintain my sanity I'll have the numerous bomb bay parts CNC-precut. That won't cost too much money, the cuts will be without faults and most importantly it won't take me tens of hours. So I wil
  4. If you're really a photo etch lover it's better to order Eduard's set anyway. It includes Revell's photoetch (as produced by Eduard!) and a bit more. Eduard's own-brand photo etch interior set has some extras.
  5. Marvelous piece of workmanship! I must admit, not recognizing the "BDU-33" typology, upon clicking this thread I expected a giant model airplane to virtually crash through my computer screen. Luckily it turns out to be just a baby bomb. Very nice! Your friend must be very happy with this beauty.
  6. Here's a link to another thread on this forum: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=36077&page=2 Apparently Revell employees have stated that the kits are equal except for the decal sheet (see last post). I don't get how the one set could have 250 parts and the other 433. Looking at the Revell stash, I'd say it's DEFINITELY more than 250 pieces. Haven't counted them but 433 looks more realistic a number. Confirmation of 433 pieces: http://www.themodellingnews.com/2011/08/revell-he-111p-1-in-132-scale-or-honey.html Here is a nice thorough inbox review of the
  7. What I see is that the Pro Modeler has 250 parts whereas the Revell has 433 parts. Sources: http://store.spruebrothers.com/product_p/rmx855628-os.htm http://www.revell.com/germany/aircraft/80-4696.html#.UzdfFWRDuhM After some more education after my first educated guess, my newest educated guess is that (in line with David's remark) Pro Modeler's version is a simplified version of Revell's kit. The only thing I can't figure out then is why you'd want to pay about as much for the Pro Modeler as you would for the, apparently more detailed, Revell.
  8. On the box it says "Pro Modeller, By Revell" so I guess it should be the same kit under a different brand. Not 100% sure but that would be my motivated guess.
  9. Also not a very terrifying small scratchbuild is the raising of the bomber's seat. See same post as linked above. The seat is way too low. If you have that ambition I'd recommend to correct that as well.
  10. Very good that you didn't attach the yoke yet. As you'll notice it doesn't align with the seat. Not very difficult to correct that. See what I mean in the second picture of this post: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=48155&p=526418 Instead of cutting the tube as depicted in that pic, you could for example add a small piece of rectangle to the rectangle holding the yoke.
  11. Unfortunately no break. I'm not aware that he has continued elsewhere. Currently it seems I'm the only one doing a Heinkel he 111 of all the members of this forum. I'd love to see your progress.
  12. @Kagemusha: are you sure about that? I heard about both plans for restoration AND plans for conservation. Not so sure what they'll choose.
