  1. Thanks Roger! That's great information and great news. too! I can't wait to get one... cheers Chris
  2. http:// I like the paint scheme of "White 4", but can hardly agree with the serial number! Reportedly 130017 "White 4" was the world's first jet plane to bring down an enemy aircraft. On 26 July 1944 it was flown by Pilot Alfred Schreiber, when he destroyed a Mosquito over the Alps. After landing, "the driver jumped off his towing vehicle and took this photo of the historic bird" (2). Flying the same aircraft Schreiber lost his life in a landing accident on 26 Nov 1944: "Forced by an engine failure Schreiber attempted to emergency land at Lechfeld airbase, but didn't make it to the runway. The jet fighter hit a trench and somersaulted, crushing Schreiber to death." (1) http:// The following pictures, "showing jets of EJG2 training unit, are taken from a training film that was made in December 1944 at Lechfeld Airbase. Being towed by a Kettenkrad "Green3", serial number 110813 is passing the scene. According to Messerschmitt production documents this aircraft was built in the first week of December 1944." (1) http:// http:// So do you think it's possible that 130017 could actually have been repaired and sent back into service within only a few weeks - in late 1944? http://
  3. That's all. Plus the bulges, camera windows and decals for the recon version. http:// cheers Chris
  4. Wow, that's great work! Chris
  5. Here's my Trumpeter Me262 Night fighter, started ten years ago. I have put a lot of work into my representation of serial number 110306 and hope to get it done once in my lifetime... http:// http:// http:// Chris
  6. Looks absolutely cool, I like the weathering! Pic 4 is my favourite Chris
  7. Fantastic result and well worth all the effort! Chris
  8. That's a cool looking Gustav! Well done! Chris
  9. Just beautiful, fantastic work! :clap2: cheers Chris
  10. Thanks for the kind words, Shawn and Guy! Very appreciated Interesting shot of the 109 at Johannesburg museum: Not bad in view of its age, but I think I'll better do some scratchbuilding in this prominent area: Engine and guns fitting test, just to see what it may look like in the future... This was really hard to do then but it had to be done... Thanks for your interest Chris
  11. Thank you, Alain and Shaka Hi! I am using my homemade punch and die set for making small parts like this. One year ago I found it could be nice to have one, but when finished this quickly became one of the most important modelling tools I ever had. The fuel cap is made from evergreen strips and odd styrene pieces. Finally I rounded the surfcace by a drop of UV glue. Chris
  12. This is what I call innovative modelling. Great work! Chris
