  1. I thought now would be a good time to start my Revell kit, as it's been beckoning to me since I received it. This, in conjunction with a Trumpeter MiG-15, will be (I hope) two of my entries in the convention in Omaha next year. The hunt has already commenced for some suitable AM for it, probably basic stuff though, as kit appears to be pretty darned nice as is.

  3. In Volume II of Kagero's Focke-Wulf series there is a depiction of a bomb toting Fw 190 with the name "TANJA" below the cockpit. According to the notation accompanying the profile the aircraft is an A-8 assigned to JG 51. However the profile appears to depict an A-5 or A-6, not an A-8 with the large bulged fuselage weapon access panel . I have found one photograph of the aircraft which unfortunately does not clarify the issue for me. So can anyone shed any light on what version of Fw 190 the machine actually was?
  4. I'm looking for the main landing gear oleo full-scale diameter. Am working on 1/32 models of the Revell FW 190F-8 and Hasegawa FW 190A-8 and each kit has different diameter oleos. The Revell oleo is substantially smaller. Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks, D.B.
  5. Hi folks, I've just finished a test shot of Revell's forthcoming Fw 190F-8, built over 12 to 14 days, as I was finishing the Mosquito. I'm happy with the finish, for a rush-job. The kit itself is excellent, and great fun to build! Swastika absent as this was a requirement for magazine. Hope you like her:
  6. Anyone else seen this offer from Airfix? http://www.airfix.com/uk-en/shop/veday-bundles/airfix-bundle-1.html If you're in the UK, you get free shipping too! Carl
  7. Well ladies and gents, I'm back once again to start my next project. Some of you may remember my mildly feeble attempt at some humor HERE with a little guessing game about a next build of mine. It didn't work out so well, as I got a bit irked at the fact that I had ordered the EP pit a LONG time ago and it still wasn't in by the time I was ready to start the build, so I moved on. The Eagle Parts cockpit has been here for a while now, and now that Im completely finished with teh XF5U-1, I'm ready to actually commence this build! With all of these 1/32nd B-17 builds going on, I figured they needed something to shoot at them so this is my next project, a Focke Wolf Fw-190 A-8 R/2 “Sturmbachâ€. In this case, I will be building Willi Ungers mount “Yellow 17†of JG 3 based in Barth Germany, as she was in the spring of 1944 – Yellow 17 had the unusual "Krebs-Gerat" mounted center line, replacing the center fuel tank/bomb. The Krebs-Gerat, was a (fairly UN-successful) 21 cm rocket that was carried under the belly of the Fw 190s, and fired rearward, into a bomber stream. This was not very effective, but was unusual since not many Fw 190s carried them. This will all be scratch built. I will be basing the model off of the venerable Hasegawa Fw-190 A-8 kit, with a PLETHORA of AM thrown at this thing, including a Black Dog A-8 R/2 conversion. I REALLY had to do some “between builds cleaning†so spent a few days really going through the man-cave. This included completely revamping my spray booth, by taking it completely apart, cleaning it (and the man-cave overall) from top to bottom, and replacing the 3 filters, along with the work-top screen I use. The took quite a while, but the spray booth has not been SO clean in years – Ready to go for some painting action! I couldn't stand having such a clean bench, so lets get started! First up, the proverbial opening shot I personally like to show that gives you an overall idea of what all I will be starting with. First up, is the basis for the whole build, the 1/32nd Hasegawa Fw 190 A-8 – Next up, an overall shot of the quite substantial pile of AM I have accumulated for this build – This includes but is not limited to: - Eagle Parts amazing late Fw 190 A-8 cockpit - Master Models Mk 108 brass canon barrels - G-Factor white brass gear - Black Dog Models A-8 R/2 Sturmbach conversion - Custom 40mm brass Werfer tube from LSP Mebo (Thanks again Mikkel!) - Lion Roar 21cm Werfer rocket - Master Details resin tail surfaces - Aires Fw 190 A-8 resin wheel wells - Eagle parts resin Fw 190A tail wheel - MDC resin Fw 190 smooth tread main wheels and ribbed tail wheel - Eagle Parts resin Fw-190 boss, and common prop blades - Eagle Parts resin Mk 108 canon fairings - Eduard color PE interior - Mike Grant late Fw 190 stencils - Montex Masks Fw 190 JG 3 “Yellow 17†paint masks - Quick Boost resin Fw 190 Anton exhausts Finally, the last piece of AM I have for this build is one of the coolest IMHO. I decided to display the Fw 190 in a vignette type setting, so I purchased a base to non-permanently display it on. I picked up the Just Plane Stuff 1/32nd Luftwaffe plank hard stand – MORE…………………………….
