  1. 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
  2. A new sheet from Fantasy Printshop: FP-1130 Current Luftwaffe Insignia Have fun! Iain
  3. Hello guys I finished another Messerchmit BF 109...what else This is 109 Nr. 13 in my collection and its a Revell kit with mix of Eagle Calls and Hasegawa decals. Unfortunaly I had problem with EC decals, both number 7 decals along with two fuselage crosses just disengrated when put in the water. Luckily for me had Hasegawa boxing with same markings so I used those . That's why there is a slight difference in decal color. As for the model itself this is my third Revell Bf 109G-6 finished along with one G-10 and I really starting to hate that landing gear and prop assembl
  4. Here are some photos of my Airfix Bf 109E-3 in Franz von Werra's markings.
  5. We take a look at a brand new 1:24 resin figure set from Elan13 - Luftwaffe Pilot with dog WW2: Have fun! Iain
  6. Just finished this one. This was on the shelf of doom for quite a while. I had purchased the kit for quite cheap and, due to the shape issues of the kit, it ended up being the last Bf 109 in my kit stash, so I figured I would go ahead and build it. However, I managed to destroy the canopy/windscreen parts before completion and also started to be really annoyed by looking at the shape issues, so I just shelved it. I finally decided to use a vac canopy from my spares and modify it to fit. I also sanded down the huge sharp corners that come off the trailing edge of the wing root fairing, into the
  7. This is representation of Erla-built Bf 109G-14 "Black 13" from15./JG5 at Kjevik, Norway in 1945. All A.M.U.R. Reaver sets, such as spinner & airscrew, cowling and oil cooler fairing with radiator mesh were used. The plane had late-war finish with several shades of RLM76 on lower surfaces and 75/82 on top.
  8. My entry will be the new HK Do-335 H-6 night fighter kit. I am going to use the extended wing option to make a B-8 variant. Since this is a "Luftwaffe '46" topic, I can have some fun with the night fighter camo and markings. I'm using Eduard photo etch, resin tires, and a few other goodies.
  9. Well there she is. A bit late in the weekend, but finally had time to take pictures and post them here. This is my latest build. I started this build in June 2016 but it stalled due to becoming a father again, so the better part of 2017 was a lost year for modelling. Anyway, it doesn't matter, because I finished the bird! When I first heard of this conversion I had to have it. I had seen pictures of it as a kid and it always struck me as such an advanced design, almost alien like. I bought the excellent book about this plane from Cristoph Vernaleken and Martin Handig. These men hav
  10. Revell is adding a Fw 190 A-8 Rammjäger to its 1/32 scale lineup. The kit is scheduled for release next spring, and will hopefully include the external armor for the fuselage and canopy.
  11. Hi all, Today is the day. I'm officially going to call this build done! For the past one and a half year this build was in my mind. Lot's of fun, a lot of learning and a few mistakes made this a very rewarding experience. I couldn't wait to share some pictures with you guys so that's what I'm going to do. Maybe I'll write a little longer piece in the near future, but for now I'll let the pictures do the talking. Enjoy! Cheers, Wouter
  12. In the spring of 1940, the German Reichsluftfahrtministerium's (RLM) Technical Office asked the Arado company at Brandenburg/Havel to undertake the design of a bomber/photographic reconnaissance aircraft to be powered by the new turbojet engines under development at Junkers and BMW. No performance details were specified, except that the aircraft should be capable of covering Britain as far north as the naval base at Scapa Flow. The design work at Arado resulted in the first design E370 (Erprobung). On basis of this design the first prototype Arado Ar 234 A - V1 (Versuchsobject) was constructe
  13. Hello Guy's, I'm warming up for my next build, the HPH Cat can't take forever, right? This project is one of my favorite Luftwaffe aircraft, the Arado Ar 234 'Strahlflugzeug' Haven't quite decided on the subject yet, there are several interesting subjects that can be done from this kit... Aftermarket stuff: Got a nice book from Valiant Wings on the Arado, with a lot of details : "The Arado Ar 234 A Detailed Guide To The Luftwaffe's Jet Bomber" Extra decals from Fly Models, the night fighter version. I have also been 'harvesting' the necessary aftermarket part
  14. Does anyone know the correct colour for the canvas covering the inside of a BF 109E wheel well. Previous threads have suggested faded blues to olive greens. I'm currently building Eduards 1/32 BF109 E-4 profipack. The instructions suggest black for the well walls, (I assume they mean the canvas) and aluminum for the roof of the wheel bay. Any 109 experts out there that can clarify for me. Thanks in advance Tim
  15. Here's my Me 262 A-1a Kit: Revell Scale: 1/72 Replacement parts: the starboard engine is a resin part by CMK. While this part is very nicely detailed, it leaves a sizeable gap at the joint between the engine and wing. To fill in the gap, I used generous amounts of Tamiya putty. After lots of wet sanding, the gap was gradually filled in and smoothed. It took a lot of elbow grease, though! The canopy is by Rob Taurus. It's very clear and looks great. In contrast, the canopy supplied by the kit is thick, a poor fit, and has no framing. Scratch-built details: epoxy (wheel bay and inter
  16. In Volume II of Kagero's Focke-Wulf series there is a depiction of a bomb toting Fw 190 with the name "TANJA" below the cockpit. According to the notation accompanying the profile the aircraft is an A-8 assigned to JG 51. However the profile appears to depict an A-5 or A-6, not an A-8 with the large bulged fuselage weapon access panel . I have found one photograph of the aircraft which unfortunately does not clarify the issue for me. So can anyone shed any light on what version of Fw 190 the machine actually was?
  17. Hello, everyone. I just finished this one today, after exactly one month of working on it, pretty much all day, every day. I'm not usually one to get the newest kit the second it hits store shelves and, even if I do, it will normally sit for quite some time before I get around to building it. For some reason, however, I had to get this kit and buid it, as soon as it came out. I'm not a Stuka fanatic or expert, by any stretch, but there's something about the early A model Stuka (often referred to as "Anton") that appeals to me. Anyway, I started this kit with the intention of just doing an out-
  18. From the web: Schlachtgeschwader 4 was formed 18.10.43 in Piacenza Italy from Stab/Sch.G. 2. When I purchased the new Revell kit I thought that my model needed to be somehow Italian so, as the Fw 190 was never used by Italians in WW2, I looked for a subject at least linked to Italy and I found that SG4 in 1944 operated from three Italian airports: Piacenza, Viterbo and Airasca and fought actively in the battle for Rome. As mentioned already in a different session of this forum, my goal was to replicate this "White 11" In addition to the Revell kit I used the following inte
  19. Hi guys - just posted a video on youtube of some Luftwaffe pilots at the Champlin Fighter Museum in 1990 and includes a start up of the D-13, thought you might enjoy! Judy
  20. Hi all, Having finished my Luftwaffe power generator (http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=47799&hl=) yesterday I am studying a comparable subject: Profimodeller's 2010 hand barrow nr. 32059. I'll describe the completion of the power generator tonight or later this week. I can't find any info about the real life example Profimodeller used (used all kinds of combinations of the terms 'Luftwaffe', 'cart', 'hand', 'barrow', 'Wehrmacht' and the german translations; can't find anything). Furthermore I can't find any build review or pictures of a finished model. Perhaps
