    Great comparisons, but overall, I'd say the Eduard 109E is just a tad better than the Cyberhobby in overall details.

    Hi all,
     
    Here is my latest project, that I did together with my wife.
    We both built a Meng DR.1, and we ended up with 2 very different versions of the same aircraft.
    I hope you will like both of them.

    And the one made by my wife Cordula:


     
    I had problems with a machinegun, and Cordula had problems with the upper wing.
    Still, we both liked the build!
     
    With regards,
    Rob and Cordula

    I believe MTT is short for Messerchmitt often used the manufacturing plant, like MTT Regensbuerg.

    I've been on a bit of a tool-buying spree of late, so I thought I'd post the 3 big-ticket items, all of which are recent arrivals. Firstly, one of the new DragonAir airbrushes from my friend Scott Taylor at SMS:
     

     
    This one has a 0.3mm needle/nozzle. They also produce a 0.2mm version, which I'm hoping to pick up once they're in stock again. Looking forward to taking it for a test drive when the opportunity arises!
     
    Next up we have two power tools from David Union, courtesy of Troy Molitor here at LSP. First one is the D400 sander:
     
     

    I certainly could have used this on the Tiger Moth a couple of weeks back!
     
    The next unit is the D360 Elite router, which is really just a mini-motor tool with Dremel-compatible chucks:

     
    Looking forward to taking both of these for a spin, too!

    1/32 Tamiya A6M3, this is 2 kits combined the 2 and 5 it wasn't that hard as Tamiya made sure the fit is impeccable to allow this to be completed and only a little surgery was needed.
    this is all painted with Mig Ammo paint sets, enjoy Mike

    hworth18 got a reaction from coogrfan in 1/18 Scale Me 262   
    This is incorrect. I was an avid 21st Century collector and they never produced the 190A in 1/18 scale (only the D model). Merit International was the company that bought many of the old 21st molds and actually produced the 190 as a new kit after 21st Century's demise. I would not be surprised if the Me262 is the old 21st Century mold though with maybe a few Merit/Hobby Boss tweeks.

    I'm pretty sure that most of the Hasegawa 1/32 molds besides the new tool A6m5c and George are over 20 years old. But I think the Hasegawa molds still stand up to the newer molds when it comes to accuracy and build.

    I think the oldest, “new tool” Japanese kit is the Ki-84 Hayate.  That may be getting close to 20 but I don’t think it’s there yet.  I’d have to check the database to see though.
     
    Yep, the Ki-84 was originally released in 2005, so only 15 years.  All the rest are newer.

    hworth18 reacted to dutik in Visiting Rechlin Luftwaffe testcenter - Fw-189 (replica) images   
    Hello, folks!
     
    Paid a visit to Rechlin Luftfahrtmuseum these days. Rechlin was THE test- and evaluation center of the German air forces from the end of WW1 to the end of WW2. From Fokker to Focke-Wulf, so to say. After WW2 it became a Soviet air field, housing f. e. Mig-23s and Mig-27s. A part of the facilities was rebuild into a large communication equiment storage for the East German NVA. Another part was made into a shipyard building small fast attack crafts and modern lifeboats. Nowadays it is a museum about all 3 branches. Been there some years ago, but they recieved a plethora of new and amazing stuff. So it was about time for another visit, armed with my trusty camera:
     

     
    You know what this is? Great news that is!
     
    We have a Do-335 in Germany! The only original one is at Udvar in the US of A. We got a replica, using as much of original parts as possible.
     

     

     
    Yes, it will be shown as a B with wing guns!
    Dunno, why the image is sideways. The orignal image is upright.
     
    Forgot to take a photo of the whole thing. I've got carried away by something different. Wait for the end of this post
     

     
    Tank Ta-154 replica. Was build by cabinet maker apprentices from Paderborn (Germany) years ago as a training project.
     

     
    DFS assault glider. Remember the Bronco kit? The type used to assault Eben Emanel fortress in Belgium.
     

     

     
    This? Fokker D.VII without covering.
    There is also a complete replica in full Lozenge wear. Not to mention a Dreidecker. A Junkers D.I replica. An Etrich Taube. Siemens-Schuckert D.III. Junkers F13. Replicas alltogether. Not to forget WW2 rebuilds: A Me-262 with some original parts. A rebuild He-162 Volksjäger. Reichenberg IV suicide bomb. Cockpit replicas of the Ju-388, Arado Ar-234, Me-109 and other stuff. A Buchon, rebuild into a 109 G2. A lot of engines. Like this one:
     

     
    Hirth engine that powered the Bücker 131. If you want more photos to superdetail your ICM engine, just ask me. I have a full walkaround set.
     

     
    This is the Lilienthal glider. Otto Lilienthal was the first human to build and succesfully fly an aircraft! Anno 1891 was this.
    The story behind this rebuild is also amazing: It was built by an 14 years old schoolboy from Munich as a school project. He used the original Lilienthal drawings, that were made public by the Lillienthal brothers themselves. It took him a full year with a lot of ons and offs. Guess you know about this phenomenon
     
    Finally the very special and unique thing of the Rechlin museum that carried me away. Guess you know what this is?
     

     
    Gotha Go-60. A very promising German late war project (the Luftwaffenministerium even had some real toughts to stop the Horten IX /Ho-229 fighter project in favour of this one). Due to it's layout fast and capable, with heavy armament (4x 30mm MG 108 firing forward, 4 more upwards) and a 3 man crew! Where the navigator and the radar operator were positoned? Lying in the left and right wingroots, with a small window in the leading edge
     
    Guess THIS is something you will not find in 1:1 scale anywhere in the world. Except in Germany
     

     
    I have a lot of more photos if you are in need of images. Look here what stuff they have at Rechlin.
     
    This was a very enjoable day, indeed! (not to mention cruising the Autobahn with 200 km/h speed the whole way )
     
    Enjoy!

    Tamiya could produce another P-51, but it would have to be a "B/C" model.
