  7. Hi everyone here is another Gloster Gladiator sheet coming in the near future, thanks for looking
  8. Hi everyone, Sopwith Camel bracing wires for Wingnut Wings kit off to the printers for test shot. Thanks for looking
  9. I'm going to see if I can keep two builds going at once. I'm almost to the halfway point on the Corsair build and once the wings are complete, painting will begin and I think that is a good time to have another project going. This is the Hasegawa Bf109K-4 kit. I've not built this one yet but having built the Hasegawa Fw190D-9 three times, I feel a sense of familiarity as I look at the sprues on this kit. I'll be adding some aftermarket to this build including, in no particular order: 1. Eagle Editions 109K-4 Resin Cockpit Set 2. Henri Daehne 109G/K Resin Prop Set 3. RB Productions 109K-4 Wheel Well Detail Set 4. RB Productions 109G/K Erla Canopy 5. Barracuda Studios 109G/K Resin Wheels 6. AIMS Late War 109s Decal Sheet 7. Eagle Cals 109K-4 #32-74 Decal Sheet 8. Airscale Luftwaffe Instrument and Placard Decal Sheets 9. MDC resin ammo chutes 10. Eduard masks The aircraft I will be modeling is White 8, Werk Nummer 332884, which was captured in this striking color photo: It's represented in this profile painting by Claes Sundin: And also recently by AIMS Models on their Late War 109s decal sheet: Since I have Silhouette Portrait cutter, I will be using the AIMS decal sheet to produce masks for the major markings. The only decal I will be using from the AIMS sheet will probably be the "Gabi" inscription below the canopy. The Eagle Cals 109K-4 sheet will be available for stencils. I am going to try and use the AIMS and Eagle Cals decal sheets to produce masks for the spinner spiral.
  10. Hi everyone here is an update for you all.... Decals 32D018 and 32D019 in the post to me....see pics Photo etch 32PE009 completed and off to printers having received my kits and amended measurements from up-scaled 1/48 Roden bracing wires design 32P018 Gloster Gladiator engine/cowl - working on 3D masters now that I have the kit Pat Pattle figure being sculpted by Elan 13 in January (not listed in Hannants Future products as not given a Cat No. yet just in case it all goes wrong haha Upper Aileron correction - in the works (ICM have given upper ailerons same design as lower aileron - upper aileron centre hinge is small like inner hinge - not large like lower centre hinge - makes a massive difference as as things stand you are unable to locate in the correct position the aileron bracing wires just off-set from strut. PE landing flaps - in the works Thanks everyone and a very Happy Christmas to you all. (I am taking the Christmas family service again this year here in Hungary - my Hungarian can be rather comical so please pray people will understand me haha)
  11. Here is my recently completed Hasegawa Bf109K-4. I started it in April, took a long break during the summer and finally finished it eight months later.

RB Productions 109G/K Erla Canopy 5. Barracuda Studios 109G/K Resin Wheels 6. AIMS Late War 109s Decal Sheet 7. Eagle Cals 109K-4 #32-74 Decal Sheet 8.

  12. Hi everyone - I have posted these before but with the ICM release perhaps it is good to have a fresh link to easily find. The album is on my AIMS FB page - enjoy https://www.facebook.com/pg/AIMS-1246247558760457/photos/?tab=album&album_id=2818460878205776&__xts__[0]=68.ARDfb4pheswdcJxud_PaAwqHlQwQisg8aM9MGhaNg9B1Ab0mQBTsbbmN_xk6xOWlS9Ym5sf35AgwaJt3JkfKK85ClUEUTuhzz9LN63CsbLidZdXkw_HxgNg0782EMwdGuttjAPqwJ2lzhUSdODMjY_mIePg8Tg_uf0cWvzfEyteBz0rzrki3O0p-aG9dH9VBegWi5DDfYLuu4fepvA1ekbqzGw_Ct_ZWUdvQH98OLJA3jC65hucttbxmOKkyy9XsZbA88J-kQCrTnkIc7drmXaQFXzIvDaD86HwBTqVOwKsAD0aqF8Vkkd38JJu6GlzJEtyDbbIMJnDbwWTW9Hc_xfEdM_YJ_wXED-hvXL5vKOE8L_aj-aX_-8FmmYL7k9K0eV8kffSIiHag18LVgyMvOF_qL-FGWl5-zOscDiogdRd4YL4cAE2520r-pvqIlIY-v6Q_EPznrNAI2CuoaKMPg_OQoQ&__tn__=-UC-R

  16. Hi everyone, a small budget sheet for the 1/32 Revell Fw 190 A-8/R2 as I had some space left on another decal sheet I needed to fill. Enjoy. Should be available by end of September
  17. First fresh build for 2019. Just finishing off a P51 from the 15th FG 308th This is part 1 of a 2 ship build based up Piotr Forkasiewicz artwork for the eduard 1/48th G10 profipack. I recently picked up the Japo KG(J)6 109 book and it has several erla built machines which feature the red and black chequered defence band so a red stripe/red chequered build off was on. I haven't decided upon the exact plane just yet.
  18. Hi everyone, well as many of you know I started a model in the summer with every intention of just enjoying modelling for myself but what always happens happened - I started thinking of products! It is the nature of the beast I guess but I really do want to crack on with the Revell bf 109 G-10 Erla and I have three new products at hand to help me along with the fantastic Barracuda items.I really need to set aside days that are for me, not AIMS otherwise I will never get anything built other than un-painted display models. I enjoyed painting the Aires cockpit - the fit caused problems and I still have large gaps in the canopy sill to work on but I was able to get the fuselage closed up fairly quickly. I wish I had not as when I decided I wanted a 'hatches and latches' set I now have lots of holes in the fuselage with no pre-installed interior detail so I will have to do the best I can. The upper cowl, whilst not perfectly addressing the width of the engine cowl does however trick the eye into thinking the cowl is much wider than it was, it isn't but the flatness of the resin part really helps together with the gun openings being further apart. Sadly after production was well underway I was informed that on Erla machines the gun opening is not straight cut at the back like on the U4 so I have rounded off mine a little and also made the cut outs for the weapons. Next up is post filling some of the interior areas and then onto laying in the PE hatch rims, all good fun!
  19. 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
  20. Hi everyone, a new 109 decal sheet coming in the new year for G-6 White 1, G-14 Double Chevron, G-14? red 2, Graf's G-6 'Special,' Black/Green? K-4 plus extra 202 victory badge for Graf (not a tulip machine - just wanted to make the marking) and also Black/green? '3' just as an extra in case someone wants to make the other known K-4 tulip machine with a stab flight number on it. Enjoy.
  21. Hi everyone, my lower engine plug and cowls for the Revell Bf 109 G-6 and the G-10 Erla kits are available now - both sets are priced £12.50 plus shipping. If you are interested email me at aimsmodels1@gmail.com many thanks John
  22. Hi everyone, available soon is my replacement upper cowl part with much flatter top and wider gun-troughs. You would not believe how much doing these two adjustments tricks the eye into thinking the whole engine cowl is much wider! This is what you could call a cost-effective compromise correction haha! £TBC
  23. 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
  24. Hi everyone my two new Bf 109 sets have just arrived, email me at aimsmodels1@gmail.com if interested. 32PE006 £5.50 + shipping, 32PE007 £9.00 + shipping
