  1. 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 have done a lot of research on this subject and their book and website http://ju388.de is invaluable if you want to model this plane. But I have to say, the book is not written with the modeler in mind. So I think that about 30/40% of my time went into research. John form AIMS did a stellar job in researching and creating the conversion, but there was still room for improvement.. With a lot of searching on the web, visiting several obscure forums, and with a little help from people here, I had enough info to make the most accurate representation of it to my ability. In the process you learn a lot about your subject which is one aspect I like about modeling. Anyway, I'm not going to repeat all the steps I have taken in the build. If you're interested you can visit my WIP-thread here on LSP: Link. But I'll give a short summary of what I used for this build. Model: Revell Ju88 A4 Conversion: AIMS Ju388 L-1 Aftermarket: Henri Daehne propellers Anttena: scratch build with Albion Alloy fit and slide tubes Instrument panel: Designed and 3D printed instrument panel Painting: Mr. Paint (primarily) Weathering: AK Interactive Paneliner So, there you have it. Without further ado, here are the pictures. Please feel free to ask questions or give critique (don't hold back, I can take it). Wouter
  2. Hi Guys, Yesterday I finished off a commission from Aviattic to build the WNW Junkers D.1 all metal monoplane fighter. My first Wing Nut, my first WWI fighter ever. AND a deadline to stick to, which saw going to be November but last week changed to last night! So the photos of the finished model are a bit dire, snapped on my iPhone as it sat near the spray booth. Parts clean up: The Mercedes engine in the kit was changed to a higher powered BMW engine. There was some hacking and chopping to get the engine to fit! A dry fit of the cockpit parts. Very tight! Regards, Bruce Crosby
  3. Hi all After receiving the alternate canopy from John I started with his Ju388 L1 conversion set for the Revell Ju88. I've started this build for the 1945 Luftwaffe group build on LSM which runs till December 2016, but I'm not sure if I will make it in time. I have only half a year left and it's a lot more work then I anticipated. I figured I could post the wip here as well for all of you to enjoy. On to the build then. This was my starting point . Cheers, Wouter
  4. Hello , I have started this very enjoyable build in November 2016 and because of it's relatively simple construction finished it in only 1,5 months. Buil was straitforward , the parts fit excellent and the only aftermarket parts used where textile belts from HGW and a Parabellum 14 MG with mixed parts from Eduard Brassin and Master barrel. I can recommend this kit very much for WW1 beginners because it has very few rigging lines ( only the stirring lines for the rudders ). Without too many word , here are the pictures , hope you enjoy.
  5. Even though it might be a bit before I can actually start this, I'm going to get this thread in place, now. This build will also be my entry in the 1945 Group Build, over at LSM's Luftwaffe section. I was going to use the AIMS 188A/D conversion to do an A from KG 6. However, I have since changed my mind and will be going for a model that I've really wanted to do, since I was a kid, which is this one from III/KG 26, as seen in Norway at the end of the war. The photo shows that these aircraft have the mounts on the nose for the Fug 200 "Hohentwiel" radar, but that the antennae have been removed. Also absent is the MG 151/20 cannon, from the nose position. However, most aircraft with nose-mounted radar seem to be without the cannon. Also, given the record of III/KG 26 in the closing months of the war, it could be assumed that this plane was fitted with torpedo racks. I'm fairly certain I'm going to mount torpedoes on it and most likely will fit the radar, as well. I believe AIMS has a PE set for the radar that I will have to acquire, but I already have the donor kit and the conversion ready to go. For now, I have to get through a 1/48 scale Su-2 build for a friend (which can be found in the Non-LSP sub-forum), but hope to start this immediately afterwards. Or, I may even start picking away at this during breaks in the action with the other build. But, that one will probably be enough to keep me more than busy, at least for a couple/few weeks, or longer. Regards, John
  6. 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-of-the-box "quick build". However, I started to see a few areas in the kit that I thought I could improve upon and things kind of snowballed from there. I have to thank all of the guys who followed along with the WIP thread, (found here: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=53021), as many of them helped me along with photos, additional information and, especially motivation and inspiration. I want to give a special thank you to Alain, for pushing me to put more detail into the cockpit, as well as for the idea behind the first aid compartment and it's panel (which turned out great!). The kit's pit is not too shabby, but adding even more scratch detail to it and posing the canopy open to show it off was a great decision and I'm glad I followed Alain's advice and finally "saw the light" of his vision. The list of modifications and additions is too long to get into here, but you can read all about it in the WIP thread. I did my best to explain and photograph everything as I went along. Overall, the kit isn't so bad. Some of the parts and assemblies fit as good or better than any other model I've ever built. Some areas are not as good, however. The kit has more than it's share of shape and detail issues, but I was able to at least improve the look of a lot of these things, at least to the point that it satisfies me. Other than a few flaws that I decided to live with (and a few more that popped out at me while editing the photos!), I'm very happy with the way this model turned out. It's very unique and looks great in my display case. I also learned a lot more about Stukas while building it and it also allowed me to stretch my skill set and try some new things. I hope you enjoy viewing it as much as I enjoyed building it! John First off, the only photo of the plane I wished to model (which wasn't on the decal sheet, of course!).
