  1. AIMS JG 54 Vol 1. First advertised last March my JG 54 decals have finally arrived! In the mean time kits have been released with some of the options I wanted to represent already included so carefully look into what you want. If interested please email me at aimsmodels1@gmail.com and remember to mention where in the world you live so I can calculate shipping, thanks and enjoy.
  2. AIMS 1/32 Mistel 3 update....hi everyone - decal stage complete yippee!!!!! Very few decals due to no unit codes and simplified stencil system but regardless it is a stage when my heart is in my mouth during the application and bedding down of the decals - not my favorite part of modelling by any means, thanks for looking
  3. AIMS 1/32 Mistel 3 update...hi everyone. Putting the washed out RLM 76 clouds on the fuselage took a bit of planning - I wanted to match the photos of Ju 88 G-10 W.Nr. 460065 as best as possible and so used a pencil to first mark where I wanted them and in doing so confirmed my suspicion that the Balkenkreuz is further forward than on any of the other G-10 Mistel 3s. Also thanks to the amazing book Captured Eagles that I got the other day you can see from the photos of the Ju 88 G-7 W.Nr. 240145 - that the clouds were painted on before the wings / wing spats were added so that meant some difficult masking off so that they appear behind the kits spats. Once the washed out 76 was applied to the sides and wing leading edges I started the RLM 75. The wing was masked off and then latter when the flap RLM 75 was dry the landing flap was masked off so that I could get a mis-match of patterns very clearly seen on sister ship 460066. The Mr Paint RLM 75 is very dark just like real fresh 75 as seen in the photos of these new-build G-10s / Mistel 3s. Another major step completed.
  4. With just two exceptions all the G-6 - onwards photos I have where you can clearly see a difference the legs and tail wheel are in 66 - Few G-1 can be found with much darker legs and tail wheel - the vast majority being in RLM 02 which was the norm before the G-6. The same switch also was made to the interior of the gear bay doors. The 188 and 388 all seam to have RLM 02 so it must have been a night fighter thing? My clearest photos of G-6s and g-10s with RLM 66 legs are in my books. Here is an example posted on FB
  5. AIMS 1/32 Mistel 3 update.... hi guys, started to get the green tint on. The Mr Paint green RLM 76 is super thin making it a very bad choice of mine to have used a black primer underneath as I am using litres of the paint to get it covered - does not look like a new build airframe at all sadly. Anyway the shade is a fraction weaker than what I really wanted and so I might blend it all in with some Tamiya 'Smoke' and that might help the over-all appearance. Enjoy
  6. AIMS 1/32 Mistel 3 update....Hi everyone, started painting the fuselage/wings. As with a number of other G-6's, G-10's and even a finished G-7 fuselage you have a massive tonal difference between parts with the lighter shade being used also to break up the darker shade along the fuselage and leading edge of the wings. It is really academic whether the darker shade is an undocumented green shade of RLM 76 or old stock of documented chemically unbalanced 65 - I do not really care as I am more concerned simply with trying to replicate the contrast. I always thought, and have always illustrated on decal sheet instructions that the clouds must be a bright RLM 67 Weiss, never stopping to think that it was washed out 76 and the area behind it was darker than normal. Well anyway I have started and am enjoying it. The next step will be to mask off the washed out 76 subcontracted parts and then spray the greener shade. I hope you like the contrast and if you are familiar with the two photos of Ju 88 G-10 W.Nr. 460065 then perhaps you will more appreciate what I am trying to do. Thanks for looking and taking an interest
  7. AIMS 1/32 Mistel S3C update..... hi everyone - just a little done as in lots of pain sadly. I scratch built the two 'Octopus' gear door operating hydraulics and also the tail rod. The details are as per the Mistel 1 actually and it should be a little more simplified than I have done it but I am not going to change it now as it took hours off my life haha. I got my test shot gear bay doors together - the detail and the thickness are fantastic but in reality the concept does not work both economically - as the PE sheet would be A-4 size and cost the customer a fortune at a time when the kits are not even available - and mathematically as when you curve parts with the same dimension cut-outs - those cut-outs no longer match - especially when there are three layers. So if I ever put this into production it will be just 1x 0.2 inner layer and a half etched outer layer - at least then there is a hope of getting it all on a reasonably sized sheet for the few people in the world interested lol Thanks and best wishes, John
  8. AIMS Mistel S3C update....over-the-moon to be able to get my 16 year old basic display model to a stage where I could close up the cockpit, thanks for looking
  9. AIMS Mistel S3C update.... cockpit finished! Obviously flash photography is not very kind on your modelling skills but without a studio set up there is no way to see into all the nooks and crannies. Thanks for looking, J
  10. I used Mr Paint anodised aluminium - it should be a tad greener but the flash makes it look too golden and it is enough ok to the naked eye. RAF Cosford R-1 has been painted over many times - note the feet of the hydraulic wall still in the Junkers anodised lacquer. Yes I will do all the pipes but cannot until the retraction arm is made
  11. AIMS 1/32 Mistel S3C update.... Lot's done - so much more to do!
  12. My references are a mixture of photos from crashed or wreaked G-1 and G-6s and surviving parts in collections plus the original Flugzugs on the Ju 88 G-1
  13. Just the back undercoat Andy - few areas needed more black added with a brush but should not look too bad once highlighted with the RLM 66
  14. Happy new year everyone - a few more details added
