These things are in my stash (and i am a weak person), therefore i can't resist to start a build in this group. I request clemency as this is my first build in LSP forum and also my first German WW2 model (this is far from beeing my favorite subject). Anyway, this kit and all the aftermarket stuff was in the cellar, I don't remember when and how it came there, but this GB is the opportunity to open the boxes. I am not a rivet counter nor a Luftwaffe specialist, so some deviations can be taken during this build and paint ... Here is the well known boxart : And all the after market that were given with this box (probably a batch on ebay with other 1:35 kits) CMK kit 5024 (bulkhead) is obviously redundant with CMK 5026 (complete interior set). Some parts are also both in EDUARD 32634 and in CMK, I have to check wich one is easier to use. Next and first step will be the build of the cockpit.
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
Hi guys, been doing something for myself recently - namely finishing a Mistel 2 I started when I first launched the conversion, need to get on with some other things now so it might be a while before I get on with the Fw 190. I also cannot find any primer here in Hungary akin to the Halfords primer i was used to in UK so i am a little stuck. Hope you like anyway.
