  1. I had the pleasure to talk with Hans at his home in Heidenheim. Judy and Jerry Crandall provided me with his address. Thanks Jerry and Judy! Hans expressed his respect to allied pilots flying deep over emeny territory. He spotted P38s several Times but they avoided combat. He also reported a combat with a squadron of Spitfires coming directly at his Staffel a 1000m low. He said "let's get them" like the russians on the Eastern Front but they flew an Immelmann in his back and on was a wild dogfight. He was still impressed with the Fw190 and the 30mm Mine ammo and its devastating effects on the target.
  2. Hi, I can´t find this kit at my retailers, is it already available, pls?!
  3. I pre-ordered a kit for 119 € in Germany. What is the official price pls?
  4. Hi all, I am looking for books on the Saturn V rockets from a modellers perspective: lots of detail photos wanted :-) Any tipps, please? TIA.
  5. Thanks. Happy modeling
  6. Beautiful bird! can you please comment a bit on the MRP colors, please? TIA :-)
  7. More weathering... Dirt & Dust will be partially removed in the next steps ...
  8. Hi, started the weathering .... WIP of dust&dirt.
  9. Hi all, finished applying Aviattic´s decals. Airbrushed engine cowling red over darkred preshading.
  10. Looks nice, will get some 109s :-) I wonder why they did not include the rivet pattern (consiting of "o-rings", not just dimples)? Is it too expensive do do them in the molds?
  11. Hi all, some progress... finished the construction work on the main air frame subassemblies. I started the under painting of the fabric covered wings and fuselage in white, tan and light blue. Still not finished. I will use Aviatic´s fabric decals. The blue needs a translucent white coat before applying the decals ... Bye for now, Bernd.
  12. Thanks Kevin, I´ve heard that, too. I just went for a dark wooden finish. But I am not an expert for WWI and Fokkers. Spreaking abaout the camo and markings therse seems to be a great variety of variants floating around of Manfred´s Fokker. Are there original photos of 152/17 available? Thanks :-) PS: This build is inspired by Wolf Buddee´s Fokker!
  13. Hi, I picked up the new MENG Fokker Dr.I in 1/24th scale. Overall a very nice kit. I cannot comment on the accuracy but so far I didn´t spot a severe inaccuracy. Also fit of parts is very nice. So let´s get started with the cockpit, fuel tank etc. The harness will be finished once the fuselage is closed, painted and weahtered. I finally settled on Richthofen´s 152/17 for the scheme and will use Aviatic fabric decals and airbrush masks from DN Models. Bye for now, Bernd.
  14. Beautiful Fokker build! I really like the light streaking of the fabric.
  15. Thanks. I have a few photos from Goshawk, too. What else do you have, pls? Bye!
  16. Next are the Gerätebänke or side consoles in the cockpit. Proved to be more tricky than expected including researching the exact geometry. I hope I have it right so far. I started by making paper templates and a styrene template. Then I cut some 2 mm MDF and made the final one. White styrene strips were used for final adjustments to make it fit properly.
  17. Hi all, I decided to join the subassemblies of the rear upper deck and the seat rails-armor plates. After careful aligning these parts for some 30 mins. I joined them with a few drops of Loctite 480. After that came some cleaning up, de-greasing and masking/airbrushing RLM 66. I settled on RAL 7015 for RLM 66, it´s not too dark which would absorb too much light in the cockpit tub.
