  1. Brilliant Andy, well done. I can understand your frustration with the aft section and the subsequent loss of motivation, been there many times but you've triumphed in real style. Me? I'm just delighted that John is making a resin part available!! Push on now, the end is in sight.

    Another classic aircraft down

    Oh how utterly sad, to see such a besutiful aeroplane in that condition! What a relief that there were no fatalities.

    Bad news

    Thinking about you Harv, keep strong.

    Nothing as sophisticated as resin Rog, it's a gloopy liquid which looks like it could be PVA based. All you do is get a large drop of it on a sharpened cocktail stick or similar, hold the drop against one edge of the window/opening then carefully pull the stick across to the other side. It takes a bit of practice but eventually the surface tension of the stuff will hold it in place, filling the gap completely. It then dries clear BUT there is always a bit of a "dip" in the centre of the window so it's never completely flat like plastic. Once dry it's quite tough like a thin skin.

    A beautiful build Gaz! I see what you mean about the slight hump but I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. The finish looks top notch, well done young sir!

    Well done Alain, small details add to authenticity! Shame about the fuel tank, bit of a bummer!

    Thanks Alain and Gaz, must admit I'm rather pleased with the way it's worked out and you're right Alain, because it's clean and simple I'll be doing the "windows" after cowl painting is complete.

    I hate the new software

    Since your original post Bill I've explored the options available a little more and I have to say I like it. I agree the posts do seem to be down, heck I've even ventured back to Britmodeller at times!!

    I've painted up the unit with the indicators and used some generic Airscale dials. It locates on the engine bearer above the fourth cylinder but I suspect I'll probably glue it to the inside of the nacelle on the closed-up starboard engine. I'm quite pleased with the way the Krystal Klear has worked, the dials are just visible enough in the test piece (a spare Bf110E nacelle opened up) but I've thinned the walls of the resin nacelle to bring the unit slightly further forward:

    Dragon Bf110E NJG 1

    Thank you chaps, I really appreciate your kind comments. The pictures are a result of three of my hobbies; modelling (especially Luftwaffe WW2 aircraft), aviation research, and photography. There's a small postscript to this build actually. A Belgian friend wrote a wonderful biography of Heinz Schnaufer a few years ago and he gave me a small book written by Schnaufer's Bordfunker Fritz Rumpelhardt. This Bf110 was on the cover of Fritz's book. Then, shortly after I'd finished the model I found purely by chance an American artist named Ron Cole who had done a profile drawing of G9+LN AND crucially added a fragment of the real aircraft, it had been salvaged in 2006, so of course I had to buy it! Some things are meant to be. (It's a pity Cole got the fuselage cross slightly wrong but never mind!)

    Fiddly parts N3 and N5 fitted fore and aft before the radiator housings: then: I've been thinking about the clear panels in the engine nacelles through which the pilot read oil pressures etc. I'm experimenting with Krystal Klear rather than using the modified kit parts, it's looking encouraging so far.
