  1. Well, so much for my break from building twins. I took the box out for a quick look see and got a bit carried away. Here's the box shot: Our cat these days seems to seek me out the moment I sit down at the bench.
  2. Greeting to all the artisitic types out there, And I'm not one of them!! Below are to pics of a Heinkel he 111 . One a period B&W photo and the other a model featured in one of AK magazines tutorials, Now the wartime photo clearle shows the upper surface of the heinkel looking quite dirty, but the AK magazine version looks a little overdone IMHO. I'm wanting to acheive something in between. I'm thinking oils- for the ability to manipulate translucency of the effect but would be interested to knnow how you guys might go about it. Also , if anyone has a colour wartime photo of a Heinkel I would be massiviely grateful, Cheers Tim
  3. So was thinking of backdated Revells 1/32 Heinkel He 111 H6 to a Batlle of Britain H4 version. I see the kit contains the sprues with the bomb bay from their P version, so that's no problem. Have ordered some decals for the H3 / H4 version so my cunning plan is looking quite viable. Any Heineken experts out there that could advise me on other changes I'll need to make. . I know there were some differences in mg armament but am struggling to find references. Many thanks in advance Tim. P.s. I meant Heinkel experts not Heineken. That's auto correct for you, though know doubt Heineken experts could also give valuable advise
  4. Seven years ago I paused with modelling, you know, because of life . I stopped with armor and now I started with large scale planes. So this is my first kit in 7 years. Lot's of mistakes, but the result is not to bad in my opinion. Learned a lot, not the least that I need more patience. Also building armor is more forgiving then planes. If you make a mistake with armor you can always cover it up in mud... The build process can be found here: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=47233&hl= The finished model below. Cheers, Wouter
  5. Thread index In this index an overview is given of the posts that show work or overviews of knowhow re. a certain aspect of the build. In other words, it's trying to be a red line of relevance throughout the thread. This in no means that all the great advice, tips, hints, compliments, motivational remarks and other great content from all who commented in any way, should be forgotten and I won't. Frankly I couldn't do without those kind and helpful replies. The hereunder overview is merely made for the ease of reference for myself (take a look at the number of pages of this thread on the one hand and the number of items in the index on the other, and you'll see) but also for those who are building a He 111 themselves and need reflection re. a certain aspect of the build. 1.

Exterior The kit + aftermarket parts - Revell He 111 P1 (which is really a P2); - Eduard Big Ed; - CMK tailwheelstrut and bay; - PM Profimodeller pitot tube; - Master MG15s; - Profimodeller oxygen masks and systems set; - Kagero 111 P2 decals; - Aires Quickboost exhaust set; - 8x MDC SC 250 bomb; - Master Details cockpit interior; - MasterCasters weighted wheels. Planned extra work: - Reading about the plane and its functionality while the build progresses; - Scratchbuilding and trying to copy Nigel's work on the interior (ribs, flooring etc.); - Scratchbuilding as much detail as I can find on pics and drawings of the interior and exterior; - All the riveting (including part of the interior); - correcting Eduard's two-dimensional brake lines by using copper wire; - the larger markings will not be 'decalled' but painted on, to preserve rivet detail. The model - He 111 P2 while it is being converted into a P3 (P2 is the base kit version, although Revell claims it's a P1 - probably because the Gardermoen museum specimen on which the kit was based USED TO BE a P1 before it was converted into a P2); - One of the two bomb racks will be shown already removed from the plane, standing in front of it. This way, the rack's detail will be very well visible and also the interior of the bomb room will be much better visible. Also the plane's internal bomb raising system will be visible. I guess not many 111 models show the bomb raising mechanism detail because when both bomb racks are installed it's almost invisible to anyone other than the insects domiciled in the fuselage. - Plane coded ‘1G+DL' of 3./KG 27, crew: Uffz. Otto Wehmeier (pilot), Uffz. Arthur Voigt (observer), Uffz. Otto Miklitz (flight engineer), Uffz. Manfred Kisker (radio operator); Münster-Handorf, 10 May 1940 (3rd option of the Kagero decals set) without the images; or I'll make my own codes. As the decals will not be applied to the plane (codes will be painted on) I'll have some flexibility. - To be set in a very large diorama (at least 1 m2) also featuring at least the Verlinden power cart, a Verlinden fuel cart, a Verlinden bomb loader, a Zoukei-Mura Kettenkrad plus cart and some figures. It will be set in a hangar + work shop. Specific Heinkel He 111 literature used - Walkaround (Squadron); - Kagero monograph 8 (Kagero); - Aerodetail 18 (Model Graphix); - Heinkel He 111 in action (Squadron); - Heinkel He 111 WWII Combat Aircraft Photo Archive (Airdoc); - Bedienungsvorschrifte 111 (2 factory manuals); - Bewegliche Waffe (7 factory manuals); - Abwurfwaffe (5 factory manuals); - Bewaffnung Bildgerät (2 factory manuals). - Bordfunkanlage (factory manual). - Montage- und Betriebsanleitung (2 factory manuals). - Lehrbildreihe 35 (factory picture manual). - Ersatzteilliste (factory book of 111 spare parts). - Flugzeughandbücher 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09A, 9B1, 9B2, 9C, 9D, 9E, 12A, 12B, 12D, 12G (19 factory manuals). - Several online sources (such as this! http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=33650&do=findComment&comment=309634) - http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=42394 (Ralph Riese).
