    Thank you kindly!
    The PE. guns and masks finally arrived from Hannants...Only a bit over 2 weeks but felt like a lifetime!
    the difference in the Aires weapons and the Revell one become apparent.

    PE added to the gear bays/ components.



    work, such as it is, continues.
    Thanks for looking

    Good day! Allow me to present my new model. This is 1/32 ICM I-16 type 29 fighter. This is really good model, I've enjoyed constructing well!
    I used PE interior set from Micro Design and add some rivets on underside wing surfaces.
    I used Akan paints and Gunze oils.
    Thank you!

    mywifehatesmodels reacted to turbo in Matchbox 1/32 Bf109E-3 Resurrection   
    Hi folks, here is my resurrection of an old partly-built Matchbox 1/32 Bf109E-3. The kit was given to me by a friend who had it left to him by a housemate way back when and had been sitting in storage for however many decades. It was just what I needed to get me going again after a nearly 2 year absence from the bench.
    This venerable old kit, first produced in 1977, is a piece of modelling history so I couldn't resist building it as is with no aftermarket parts and just a few tweaks to things I couldn't ignore (although nothing I couldn't have done in 1977). It has a lot of age-related shortcomings (don't we all!), but I think Matchbox did a wonderful job with the form and lines of the Emil given the technology at the time.
    The scheme I chose is the mount of Uffz Karl Wolff of 3./JG 52 based in Calais during 1940. He crash landed Yellow 15 on August 30 1940 and was later shot down and bailed out over Sussex on 30 September 1940 in Yellow 14, becoming a prisoner for the remainder of WWII. 


    No aftermarket items were used apart from Montex masks for painting of markings. Paints were largely Gunze and Tamiya acrylics and weathering was with oils, enamels, and salt fading. The full build thread can be found here:
    So chuck on some ABBA, break out the fondue set and I hope you enjoy the trip back to 1977...
    Cheers, Kirby

    Thank you very much! I really appreciate the encouragement!
    I've taken the leap to wiring the overhead gauge pod (drilled a hole through it for the I.P. wiring to traverse) It was a bit tricky figuring out what order to do the wire and glue together procedure. At any rate here's where I am tonight.
    The top gauge pod wired for install:

    Found myself losing some bits I thought I had stashed away safely...so safely even I cant find them. Drat! So with some spare time and no real need to hurry ahead I decided the fuselage of the 111 although nice, could use some rivets. I decided to punch some rivet marks with an RB riveter.

    A bit more progress on the model, mostly painting stuff but, some assembly;

    annnnd because I told them I would mention their product...(I had a few emails with them) Mission Models paint was initially used on the bombs but because it washed off during the decal application I had to repaint the bombs with Vallejo...seriously! the decal water washed off the paint!  

    I found ref's indicating the bomb bay and internals were RLM 02 but then saw pics that showed the bomb racks were painted RLM 66. I had a bit of confusion until I decided to paint the racks RLM 02 then RLM 66 overtop and weather back to the RLM 02 too look like the bomb racks had been repainted.
    A comparison of the kit ammunition and the resin, the kit one looks a little small? I've got new examples on the way and some spares from the Ju-88 which for some reason are much better, even the defensive guns from the 88 kits are much better..oddly.

    added the radio and some wiring. wire from phone line...anybody remember when phones had wires?

    The latest model off the bench is Trumpeter's 1/24th Bf-109 G-10. 
    More or less out of the box, but I did add a couple of extras in the form of Eduard seatbelts and Barracuda wheels, and I opened up the armour plate behind the pilot (as the kit had it molded solid) and I added some clear acetate to replicate the armoured glass. 
    Paints were my usual Xtracolor enamels, and it is my first ever attempt at mottling which I was pleased with.
    Best regards to all,

    mywifehatesmodels reacted to David Mooney in 1/32 P-47D Razorback.....to bomb or not to bomb   
    Hello all, I hope you all have been surviving lockdown by modelling-on.....this is the second Jug of lockdown. 
    I set about Trumpeters P-47D Razorback version this time and found that the Razorback was a bit more of a drama than the Double top version, I think it maybe a different mould completely. Its a little tricky to get together and line up, but as long as you proceed slowly with the build, you should be fine. 
    I added a few aftermarket pieces, these were the resin wheels by Brassin and the gun barrels set from Master (32115) and I get rid of the metal seatbelts and made my own from masking tape as I can never get the photo etch belts to 'sit' right. Paints were from Gunze Mr Colour range and as ever.....are brilliant. 
    I added some magnets into the wing where the pylons attach, then added some magnets in the pylons so the lower wing is untouched for displaying without the pylons attached or kept clean. 
    So here is aircraft 42-75242 which was flown by Capt Michael Quirk flying for 62nd FS/56th FG, Halesworth.

    I did this as a quickie while I await my 2nd T-28 kit to arrive on the slow boat from China for by build thread on same, and the motor & light kit for the B17, I threw it together so fast I forgot to do a build thread sorry! As usual from me, it's motorised & illuminated because... well, because it can be, and I enjoy the photographic opportunities - need to obtain some sky or airfield backdrop for further goes :-). Bit of an issue with the engine sound on this, the way I coiled the cabling may be the reason the lovely startup and run sound is accompanied by whining feedback, something I'm in contact with MSM about as I'm a bit of an early adopter for their stuff.
    Extras: Master details pilot figure & metal MGs, Eduard cockpit dashboard & harness (waste of time, can't see a single thing with young Klaus sat there) Montex masks, and Magic Scale Modelling light & sound kit. Painted with a mix of Tamiya & AK, weathered with flory wash & AK grime. Thanks for looking.
