  1. Hello, here I'm again! I. I was able to find some evidence for the opening in the fuselage I wrote about above: It is obviouse that there is a plenty of room in the fuselage to add my EEEs. So I'll have to change a lot in the kit because the kit hase not really hat the real fuselage was like. II. Starting with the bulkheads I'll try to catch the inner line of the visiable stanchions inside also. But first I'll have to figure out the bulkhead/frames's lines and the stanchion's openings in the bukheads and frames. II. But now I've got an important question due to
  2. Some bad jokes made by Revell in 1974: That's a pitty but now I know where the equipment is to be placed. I think about building the single parts individually from wood, odds and ends by visceral. Or are there any measurements. Can I write to the museum in Australia to get some of the measurements or pictures? The E³ will be build from odds&ends - I'm collecting ideas to get some of the instruments in individual ways looking functional and correct for the business the have to do. The antennas are so special thing and I have to deal with sending and sign-collectin
  3. The Figures are mounted on the red square inch: Now it is saturday and it's bathtubday! Now the question - what to do with the inner side of the kit: Compaded to the cutthrough: Here some technical drawings I figured out to get some idea of the inner structure of the fuselage.: A good overview so we can say the No.47 "Bulkhead" is right in the Revell kit... but with this everything ends... Something about the hydraulic, pneumatic and electip piping and wireing. Interesting: Detailling of the tail Very important for me is t
  4. Hello thanks for the intrest from your side. This kit will be a trip due to the pure size of the kit. But as I read at wikipedia that she had a plenty of room in her fuselage I think I'm right to abuse her as an electronice testing plane. But what I really miss here is the absence of a scale in the pictures a a ruler or a coin to give some idea of the pure size and in the same moment miniaturness of the built parts... so I painted a funny duett of Gretchins from my son's figure collection for Warhammer40k and scewed them on a red quareinch. This might give a optical comparsion to a rea
  5. Here my first doodling scetch of antannas with bare copper surfaces: Antenna types : Barreal Abor Feather Fir Tree
  6. "How a husband fades when his wife appears." Curt Goetz Hello friends, she means well to me - and I got the Revell Bristol Beaufighter Mk. IF from Revell by my beloved honey as a unexpected present. Prioritseing everything new... So I decided without hesitation to surf through the www and I really found a nice colour scheme reducing the giant size of the kit a bit I hope: its copied from the backsite of a 1/144 kit: What are your tips, hints and tricks for her? I've never dealt with the "doubleB" I played a bit with MSpaint - so it possible to do some
  7. Hello friends, often was told the MiG 15 was designed out of the plans of the RLM Focke Wulf Ta(chem) 183. The plans were brought to Russia and the story started. (The warbirdsforum has several articles about this: the angle of the wings, the placing on the elevator, the tail is not the same, ect. ...) So the story changed when in summer 1945 Berlin was recaptured - and the 2nd plancopys were hastly used in the Jägernotprogramm: partly wooden builded. The "Gustav" is the nightfighter type of the Ta 183 used against Britsh bombers - in the new squadron "Theodor Körner" - black th
  8. ...and I figured out where I saw this cioloursheme before: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showuser=29051 Peterpools has got a Boeing F2B-1 from USS Saratoga in his signature here a little video for those who don't know warthunder - and why it's fun to fly a F3F-2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4VfBtyOL0c
  9. That's very intresting , guys! So the F3F is a recycled kit of this sportsaircraft So I'd have to invest some US$ 66 + p&p for the aftermarket addtivives??? For the BF2C-1 I would have to add 25 bucks, too. This isn't in the planed budget But I have been ablet to lay my hand on a can of brake-cover-colour for sportscars showing her inner live (* very distinguished Oxford English:* As not one out of my stack of three RR scaled1/16 will never do like. ) so I found this fine red. I decided to build her just in this way as this pearticular aircraft of the commander of
  10. Hello thanks for the basket full of motivations and helpful hints. And crumbling on my carpetmonster's head with popcorn - it's not used to this usually it's awayting kitparts to grap them, run away and hide them... please don't irritate her too much! I'm 'till awayting my kit by mail also my brandnew BF2C-1 "Goshawk" with rejectable landing-gear I managed to snatch her from under sombody's nose
  11. Thanks to all of you for the very helpful inforamtion, links and hints. In the next days a compressor for the airbrush will appear here So I'm hopefull to be able to spray this airplaine - but the cherryred I would like to the the Citadel Groe Red for cant't be sprayed - so I'll hopefully be ableto find some alternative. colour for ttail, band and enginecover... Abaout the aftermarket set - I found this notice: I seriously need to take a break from this! So until further notice Lone Star Models will not be accepting any new orders. All orders on hand will be filled
