  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 of new and amazing stuff. So it was about time for another visit, armed with my trusty camera: You know what this is? Great news that is! We have a Do-335 in Germany! The only original one is at Udvar in the US of A. We got a replica, using as much of original parts as possible. Yes, it will be shown as a B with wing guns! Dunno, why the image is sideways. The orignal image is upright. Forgot to take a photo of the whole thing. I've got carried away by something different. Wait for the end of this post Tank Ta-154 replica. Was build by cabinet maker apprentices from Paderborn (Germany) years ago as a training project. DFS assault glider. Remember the Bronco kit? The type used to assault Eben Emanel fortress in Belgium. This? Fokker D.VII without covering. There is also a complete replica in full Lozenge wear. Not to mention a Dreidecker. A Junkers D.I replica. An Etrich Taube. Siemens-Schuckert D.III. Junkers F13. Replicas alltogether. Not to forget WW2 rebuilds: A Me-262 with some original parts. A rebuild He-162 Volksjäger. Reichenberg IV suicide bomb. Cockpit replicas of the Ju-388, Arado Ar-234, Me-109 and other stuff. A Buchon, rebuild into a 109 G2. A lot of engines. Like this one: Hirth engine that powered the Bücker 131. If you want more photos to superdetail your ICM engine, just ask me. I have a full walkaround set. This is the Lilienthal glider. Otto Lilienthal was the first human to build and succesfully fly an aircraft! Anno 1891 was this. The story behind this rebuild is also amazing: It was built by an 14 years old schoolboy from Munich as a school project. He used the original Lilienthal drawings, that were made public by the Lillienthal brothers themselves. It took him a full year with a lot of ons and offs. Guess you know about this phenomenon Finally the very special and unique thing of the Rechlin museum that carried me away. Guess you know what this is? Gotha Go-60. A very promising German late war project (the Luftwaffenministerium even had some real toughts to stop the Horten IX /Ho-229 fighter project in favour of this one). Due to it's layout fast and capable, with heavy armament (4x 30mm MG 108 firing forward, 4 more upwards) and a 3 man crew! Where the navigator and the radar operator were positoned? Lying in the left and right wingroots, with a small window in the leading edge Guess THIS is something you will not find in 1:1 scale anywhere in the world. Except in Germany I have a lot of more photos if you are in need of images. Look here what stuff they have at Rechlin. This was a very enjoable day, indeed! (not to mention cruising the Autobahn with 200 km/h speed the whole way ) Enjoy! - dutik
  2. 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.
  3. I got this kit last week, and I couldn't resist opening it up to sniff the styrene. I'm going to take this one slow, as a fill-in when I've got things drying on my George builds - or as a mojo enhancer when I get bogged down. This will be a strictly OOB build, too. At this point, I plan on building it buttoned up - though ungainly, I find the lines of this plane pleasing. First impressions: Despite the lack of exterior rivet detail, despite the molding of exterior surfaces in clear plastic - it's a beautiful kit. The molded-in details are in a word, crisp. What parts I have put together fit like a glove. The instruction booklet is comprehensive. The only improvement I can recommend as I start is that I wish the color photos of completed assemblies were a little larger. At the bottom of each page is a legend on paint colors used in the steps for that page. No flipping back to the front to look at color callouts! I've given the fuselage halves a coat of Mr. Surfacer 1500 black (new to me, but highly recommended). I didn't really see ejector pin marks until I primed - another disadvantage of clear plastic and old eyes. Here we go... I poted this on another thread, but it's important! Do NOT use snips to remove this sprue attachment point! Notice the ejector pin marks. On mine, they are raised. Some forethought will be required to prevent tail sitting. I've looked at every conceivable place to add weight (as far forward as possible). Before my dentist retired, he gave me bags of sheet lead from used dental x-ray film. They're very good for filling small oddly shaped crevices, like the back side of the supercharger. More weight added to the Mk 103 ammo chutes. lead shot and J-B weld. I would recommend using a fuselage half to set the proper angle on the rear cockpit bulkhead. A detail shot of the fuel compartment bulkhead. I have yet to do any detailing. And the nose gear bay with a coat of RLM 02 I gave the IP a coat of Mr. Surfacer and applied the decal once dry. I opted to use the single decal for the entire panel. This decal was thick! It took several coats of Microsol to finally get it to settle in. I would recommend cutting off the four red switches at the bottom and applying them separately. Otherwise, that single decal will have to traverse two 90 degree bends. I couldn't get that part to line up properly.. That's all for today.
  4. Hi all, Over the last 10 days, me and my friend François have been busy doing a quick build of the Do-335 Pfeil by HK Models. It is a late test shot we built for TMN. Here is a photo of it, a link and a little cartoon I made. I hope you like it! Nic http://www.themodellingnews.com/2014/09/full-build-of-hk-models-do335-pfeil-in.html#more
  5. Howdy gang, I've been getting some inquires about these two kits. So, I thought I'd head ya'll off at the pass! The Airfix 1/24 Typhoon is available. $120.00 We are taking pre-orders for the HK 1/32 Do-335. $150 Remember, Roll Models has free shipping on orders over $195. That is important to keep in mind with these larger models. :-) As always, email me with questions. Brent
