  1. I'm hoping to get a start on this, hopefully this coming week and have it done for the group build deadline...nothing like a late start hey?! The armload of accessories My (hopefully) chosen color scheme I'm not sure what all it needs for improvements but I guess I'll burn that bridge as I cross it.
  2. On 1 September is 80 Anniversary of WWII start - Germany invaded Poland. My plane is E-3 from that period ,with character from Max und Moritz fairytale on engine cover. I added: - Yahu IP - Resin seat from Quickboost, - Profipack etch - resin exhausts - some other corrections. Now i'm waiting for IBG PZL P.11C to have both sides main fighter planes.
  3. New little sideline project whilst waiting for paint to dry/things to arrive on the Liberator. Spent the afternoon assembling the railway gondola to check the He162 fitted!
  4. Hi all, After Lope's Hope P-40N dragged on for months, I needed a true Mojo kit. This was it! This is the weekend edition Spitfire from Eduard. It build up wonderfully right from the box. The only complaint is that I had no seat belts of any kind (so I posed the canopy closed). There were a lot of fiddly little parts...but everything fit together like a Swiss watch. I must say it was about 8 weeks of model building joy. Rock on Eduard! It got entered in the IPMS Nationals last weekend but the competition was fierce. It was my first use of Mission Models paint. Their primer is awesome and it will be "my boy" from now on. The spinner was painted with Model Master Acryl. My secret formula for that is 50% Future. Sprays great and cures hard as rock! OK, indulge me in one more pose of "Lope's Hope"...
  5. Time to start my tribute build project. Corsairs definitely seem popular lately Been awhile since I've done a prop so will try to do some justice to this kit. Like so many of us I built this kit as a teenager so when I had a choice of what to pick up I decided on this one. The intent isn't to be exact, my purpose is to recreate a childhood memory. My Uncle Dennis grew up in Akron Ohio by the Goodyear Airdock. He remembers seeing the corsairs flying over all the time. When he was about 8 he used to shoot his bow and arrow at them as they flew over lol. I expect this will be just a slightly dirty bird as I understand it they leaked oil from the radials no matter what the flying conditions were. Anyone who can drop in a few pictures as the project moves forward please feel free to do so. That will really help when I go to paint her. I may have to do my own decals for the major markings. The plan is to do an AC from VF653, which was a Naval Reserve Squadron out of Akron Ohio. VF653 was aboard the USS Valley Forge (CV45) during the Korean conflict. Most likely I will do Cook Cleland's AC. He was an Ace during WWII and became a Thomson Trophy winner before Korea. In addition to all this he was from Cleveland Ohio so the whole local area theme is playing big here!
  6. It has begun. Took me about a year, but finally got started. This will be Duchess Arlene and the intent is to bring it to Nationals in Chattanooga. We'll see if it goes on the contest table or the club table, or the Display table. We all know the box: And here is the aftermarket of which I'll be using bits and pieces - mostly for the cockpit. I have some duplicates (Brassin and Barracuda and tires for one) so am looking to mix and match. Mustangs were supposedly known for having mismatched tires (although I've seen very few pictures of that). I've already sorted through most of that Big Ed batch and won't be using any of the Engine bits (more on that in a minute) or the machine gun bays. I have 3 options for the IP actually. Bases by Bill did a custom base for me and it is amazing. The name tag actually has its own little stand as well and I purchased the appropriate medal for Lt. Williams. I mentioned I have three options for the IP: the Kit, Eduard and Barracuda. I'm going to see if I can build all 3 as kind of a comparison and will post that separately but will show some of it here as well. The Barracuda IP intrigues me the most, but also looks like an amazing amount of work. Hmmm... Not as big a fan of the self-adhesive Eduard but the detail is nice. I have the Barracuda cockpit placards as well. MIGHT look at a combo of Eduard and Barracuda. We'll see. Oh, I have a piece of Tamiya tape on the Barracuda IP as I get it ready for primer. I have already removed the outer pouring casings but not the base yet. I'm not going with the removable engine panels so the engine is only what is needed to secure the prop and exhausts (which don't actually attach to the engine on this kit): Hopefully more tomorrow. Ciao! Chris
  7. Spotted Ass Ape (front ship) This ship had extra external lights so might be a good excuse for some fibre-optix/leds. Am being assembled, B17 brassin wheels, B17 armament set, HGW fabric belts. DN model mask set just ordered
  8. Here is my recently completed 1/32 Hasegawa Fw 190D-9 build of the JV44 Dora flown by Heinz Sachsenberg known as "Red 1". In addition to the kit parts, I've added the following aftermarket items to the build: 1. Aires 190D-9 resin cockpit set 2. Eduard 190D-9 brass flaps 3. Quickboost 190A gun barrels 4. Eagle Editions 190A/190D-9 Early resin tail wheel 5. Henri Daehne VS111 resin prop 6. HGW 1/32 Luftwaffe seat belts 7. Montex Masks 8. Eagle Cal decals
  9. So here's my first entry to the GB. JG300 Red 12 Bf 109 G-6/R-6 Bonn-Hangelar 1943, a great messy scheme to work with. Using the Trumpeter kit as a base simply because I can open the engine up and its fully riveted already. Got the owl PE acoustic pipes and a Reever prop. HGW fabric seatbelts via Eduard (slightly cheaper option) and Makatar masks.
  10. New project will be the somwhat maligned Eduard 1/32 BF 109 E-4. Haven't decided on the markings yet but it iwll be a Battle of Britian era plane. Will be building basically OOB with just what Eduard provides. Which looks like quite a lot.
  11. 23-27 november. 50% off plastic kits and self-adhesive PE. Here is their link to the list in pdf format to download. http://app.se6les.cz/public/open/nlink/?u=892e9ba4-3359-11e4-8c35-002590a1e85a&c=f8eeb9ff-699b-11e4-96a5-002590a1e85a&l=c3405691-e355-11e8-ae19-06b3ea2053b4&sid=c8bec8b655ca40d7b2d5815e95665e3b
  12. Hello to you all I know im still working on the mosquito but work is going slow with all the painting going on so i dicieded to start the beast of the stash The wife is happy off course i prommisd here to build this one for here this will be a long term project for me so here are the pics before the start The kit aftermarket for this one so first step will be the nose section i know there is a lot off discussion about the intirior colors but i will go for a metal one for this part i hope to do a update soon wish me luck Mark
  13. Calling this one done. Eduard profipack version of Gallands machine circa 1940. i just noticed, after taking the photos that I've got the wrong spinner on> Ah well, if I get the energy I'll pull it off and replace it. Apologies to all the 109 experts out there
  14. I just thought I would post a mini review of the new Eduard Look 634002 F4U-1A Panel. I saw this available a few weeks ago and ordered one for possible use in my Tamiya F4U-1A. My first impression is that the variety of media used is impressive, the gauges are clearly printed, it seems to be in register. The black panel plastic is nicely finished and not rough or flawed in any way. The lens covers are nice and shiny. And finally the detailed is nice and 3D looking, certainly better than the PE versions. The seat belts, are nice for PE, but look overdone, the stitching looks large, perhaps a good dust coat or weathering will improve them. They can be used for a quick build, but I doubt anyone doing a super detailed build will use them. I do recommend spraying them with a thinned dust coat to blend them a bit. So, this makes my opinion of it tough to nail down. I think with the F4U-1A, the parts Tamiya supplies actually make a very nice panel. I think where this one has an advantage is 1. labor saving, you are definitely saving time by having it built for you. 2. The clear and shallower lenses in the panel are much shallower than the Tamiya piece, which makes it easier to see the gauges from outside the cockpit. So, now the bad...as nice as it is, it still has a plastic, unpainted, look to it, maybe a dullcoat and some weathering will improve the look a bit. Conclusion, this is the nicest aftermarket panel besides Yahu, which in my mind still look nicer, but don't have as much 3-d effect to them. Its a tough call, in my personal opinion, having recently built the -1D, i dont think Tamiya Corsair needs this, as its only a marginal improvement. I will use it, mainly because I bought it already. Where I think this concept shines is for Hasegawa and Revell models that only give you a decal. For my next Revell Mustang or Hasegawa FW-190, I will definitely order one of each. I like the concept.
  15. My latest build for a GB on another forum, but large scale so thought I'd show it here. I realise and know the canopy is wrong and a couple of other bits, but this was for a Hobbyboss/Trumpeter kit GB and I just wanted to try the camo scheme for this Malta Spit. I've 4 more variants I want to do and these will be much for accurate (hopefully). I did correct the tail stabilisers and the prop with quickboost am as well as master barrels and some eduard pe. Mr Paint, Gunze and Tamiya for paintwork and oils, ammo and AK for weathering. And the book I was working from
  16. This aircraft is built for the 1/32 Eduard kit straight out of the box, only personal addition is the map in the cockpit and a set of Air Masters canons. The Messerschmitt Bf 109E fighter of Franz von Werra, shot down over England, where he was taken prisoner in January 1941. Von Werra was sent with other German prisoners to Canada, where possibly he became the only German airman to make his escape from there, returning to Germany via the still neutral U.S.A. Von Werra was also a skilled fighter pilot, although his results weren't anywhere near those of the Luftwaffe's top guns. He most frequently flew as a wingman of Hauptmann Erich von Selle, the commanding officer of his unit. In this role, he scored four victories during the Battle of France – a Hurrricane, two Breguet 693s and a Morane MS.406. Despite this initial success, von Werra's tally did not advance any further during June, July and larger part of August, despite the fact that operations against the RAF were being flown almost daily. Then suddenly, on 28 August, von Werra returned from a mission claiming 9 aircraft destroyed. According to his report, he first shot down a Spitfire during a general melée, then became detached from his unit, spotted three Hurricanes on a landing circuit and destroyed them one after another. Lastly, he zoomed low over the airfield, setting additional five Hurricanes on fire. Then came the day of 5 September, when von Werra was shot down. On that occasion, II./JG 3 was flying as an escort to a bombing raid on Croydon. On the return leg of the raid the bombers were attacked by a swarm of RAF fighters. Hauptmann Von Selle, leading the thirty escorting Messerschmitts, gave the order to attack. At the exact moment when Selle rolled his aircraft to starboard to initiate a dive, another gaggle of Spitfires jumped them from behind, their guns blazing. Von Selle's aircraft avoided the bullets. His wingman, Franz von Werra, did not have such luck; a well-placed burst damaged the engine of his Bf 109 and knocked off his radio. Without engine power, the German pilot was unable to shake off the attacker, which followed him in a dive, squirting the Messerschmitt with a series of short bursts. Ultimately, von Werra had no choice but to make a crash-landing. This he did, putting down his aircraft wheels-up but otherwise intact on a field at Loves Farm, Marden, Kent. The identity of the victorious British pilot remains the subject of debate until this day. Some researchers claim that the pilot who was responsible for the shooting was F/Lt John Terence Webster of No. 31 Squadron. Others believe it to be a shared victory by P/O George Bennions of No. 41 Squadron and P/O Basil Gerald Stapleton of No. 603 Squadron. Yet others have attributed the same achievement to F/Lt Paterson Clarence Hughes, an ace of No. 234 Squadron with a victory tally of 14. Officially, the credit originally went to ‘Stapme' Stapleton, but Hughes final DFC citation in the London Gazette of 22 October 1940 awarded him a half credit for the same (The spitfire site n.d.)
  17. 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
  18. 'Morning ladies and gents, lads and lassies, Let me give it to you, straight. The Mustang was never one of my favorites. Something to do with the snobbish side of me, never wanting to love a plane everybody loves to love. It's sooo uncool to like a pretty face, right? That is until some months ago, when stranded in a foreign land and estranged from my trusty desk and rusty tools, all that was left for me to do was some virtual modelling on the internet. That is when I read about a new Revell release associated in some way with Radu Brinzan. I knew the name and respected the modeller. I was intrigued and read on, the previews, the reviews, the WIPs ... and soon before long I was hooked. I wrote to my friend in Belgium to buy a kit for me and in anticipation, I myself ordered an Eduard interior set. Thus, months later upon my return to my trusty desk, I was ready to join the fray. For my subject, I chose Art Fiedler's HELEN, a P-51D-5 of the 325 GR in Italy 1944. Seen here in static simulation And in simulated video The main reason for this choice is an opportunity to airbrush the famous yellow-and-black checkers and the various markings using Frisket film. I know it shows my age but what the heck? Secondly, this particular machine is retro-fitted with the dorsal fin fillet DFF found on later versions of the P-51D. So it will give me the chance to try my hand at the controversial 'swayback' fillet as these field-installed mods were known. Just what I needed to spice up an all-too conventional build... or so I thought at that time 'Nuff said. The ride is about to begin, ladies and gentlemen, all aboard. Cheers, Quang
  19. Calling this one done. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the build. Learnt some new techniques including my first rivet job and also learnt hairspray and masking tape don't mix no matter how long its been on! 1/32 Hasegawa FW190 A-8 Aaron
  20. small side project while waiting for some parts for the TBF-1c Avenger. Cockpit and engine are those brassin parts from Eduard. Spitfire painted with Alclad "Polished Aluminium". Pin-wash was done with clay-based wash from Ultimate. The exhausts are installed in a wrong angle. They point slightly upward. Anyway, fun to build and I learned how to weather Alclad paint...somehow. lol If MJ250 really was in NMF. Idk. Dirk
  21. So this is my next build on the bench 30.04.45 - FW 190 A-8 W.Nr 739 136 'White 15 + -' of II.(Sturm.)/J.G. 4 'White 15 + -' took off from Parchim, north-west of Berlin, piloted by another Estonian, Oblt. Anatol Rebane. This FW 190 was scrapped in Sweden in 1946. Anatol Rebane lived in the West after the war, and after leaving the United States in 2002, now lives in Estonia again. Found Claes Sundin's profile on his website and fell in love with the late war appearance. Then found several images of the plane which are perfect for an accurate build (hopefully)! Hasegawa kit for the build Eduard PE for the pit And started on it, whilst the paint dries on the Kolibri
  22. Hello , after 1,5 month of fun with this kit I would like to show my finished Bf-109 E-4 flown by German ace Major Helmut Wick in 1940. The kit is not perfekt and some small fit problems had to be solved , for example the oil cooler and the fit of the engine cowling. But nothing too serious and in my opinion still the best kit to build an acurate Emil. Hope you like it. Peter
  23. I can't seem to make any headway with my two 1/32 Sopwith Camels - the rigging just has me in knots (Ha ha, that was a LITTLE funny, right? ). But I've found some enjoyment in some of the 1/72nd kits and the Eduard kits are just a joy to build. Fit and detail are amazing for kits in this scale, instructions are very clear - and they don't take up a lot of space. Ok, so why twins? I purchased a Profi-Pack kit of the Spitfire Mk IXc, and knowing I have many different decals to play with, purchased an Mk IXc OVERTREES set to go with it. My first Overtrees - which is simply a sprue-only kit - no decals, masks, PE or instructions (which for Eduard can be downloaded from the site - but I used the Profi-Pack instructions anyway. Here is the kit box: Here is the OVERTREES label. They also make available the PE frets if you want too... Since I can build two kits at the same time I decided to try some different things with the OVERTREES build - namely some masking (those D-Day Strips) and the camo masks work and a non-PE IP. Turns out, you really can't see much of a Spitfire IP anyway. Unfortunately, I should have bought a second set of canopy masks - masking the tiny Spit front windscreen takes a steadier hand than mine so I'll either try and reuse the masks from the Profi-Pack build or may give tape another go. Here are the two birds I'm building; (DU*N) as the Profi-Pack and the OVERTREES build is (WX*D). Apologies that I'm jumping into this build at probably more like the 75% (where did I put those build pics?? The masking for the camo alone took me a day!) but here is where I'm at so far. Still need to finish the landing gear and start the weathering, as well as adding the antennas, fuel caps, pitot tubes, etc. WX*D is on the left, DU*N is on the right. The camo is Vallejo Model Air and the Sky fuselage bands are painted as are the yellow leading edge stripe. On DU*N, the red 'tape' covers are painted on, while on WX*D they are the kit decals. Honestly, for as easy as it was to mask, so much easier to paint than try and align the 4 decals. For looks? I think after sealing with a clear coat then a matte or flat coat it will be a wash. But I like painting them better. Ideally, I was going to use masks for the national insignia on WX*D, but in the end, I kind of just wanted to get on with it. And the fact that the Eduard decals react beautifully to Micro Set. I 'paint' on some Micro Set where I want the decal, put the decal down and cover again with some Micro Set. I'll revisit in a couple of minutes, using a brush to smooth out any wrinkles but very quickly all the decals snuggled down into the panel lines. NOTE: What I've found is you don't have a lot of time to move and adjust the decal with this method. The solution gets to work very quickly breaking down the decal and if you don't move fast enough (15-25 seconds max) it can turn to mush. That reminds me. The 'door's on both aircraft will be open, the ones there are just masks for the fuselage painting. I also used more of the stenciling on DU*N although again, at this scale, unless you know where to look they are actually very hard to see. Next up is another clear coat to seal in the rest of the decals and then start on some weathering - esp on the underside. Not going to go crazy, but hope to show some of the oil streaks common to the type. DU*N also has a lot of the PE grills and screens so hope to show those off a bit better. I'll work on some better photography for the next batch, hopefully! Thanks for looking and of course, comments are welcome. Chris
  24. Just a couple of odds and ends to do but the main build is done. tail light, wing lights, pitot tube and aerial and she's done. Again be at Telford
  25. Hello the next kit i will start the mosquito Yes another one im still working on the corsair but im at the point for decals so everything is slowing down and i whant to build So this wil be a slow build and try to do better than my corsair After looking at all the mosquito builds over here i hope i can meet the finnish standard For the markings i have no idee at the moment So the kit. the aftermarket for this one i hope i can make a small start this weekend Mark
