  1. I may come to regret this, but after the intensity of finishing my AIMS conversion Bf110G4 in the "In the Pale Moonlight GB", I feel that I need a more "simple" build to get my head straight and before getting involved in the Multi-engined GB with my Anson. I bought this kit early last year and have been itching to build it ever since: The Fw44 Stieglitz (goldfinch) was one of the main training aircraft for the Luftwaffe in the 30s and 40s and was flown by Peter Spoden, a former Nachtjager and gentleman who I've been privileged to meet: It's the first full resin kit that I've built, so bit of a learning curve there, but it will be OOB apart from a few bits of wire in the cockpit. It comes with all the bits in plastic bags: packed by Celine! but as Geoff Coughlin noted in one of his reviews of a SW kit in Scale Modelling Now, the bits are randomly packaged. The instructions are a series of drawings: but there are no identifying numbers or sprues to give you a clue about what is what and where it goes. So my first evening was spent emptying everything out onto a table and basically trying to identify bits and sorting them into bags: It was a worthwhile exercise because I feel that I've got a bit of a handle on what's going to be needed. No decals provided but masks, which I prefer anyway so that's a plus. I hope to start the build very shortly. This is a rather good photograph, very clear around the engine, which is where I'm going to start!
  2. After a long battle Fiat is finished. Markings are my own work + old masks and decals from other models. Work in progress topic: http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=69719&hl= My Spanish collection - Cricket, Rata and Stuka. All beautiful in their own way :
  3. Finally it's done ! I've started it more than one year ago, but most of the time it stayed on my bench half built and untouched. I restarted it a few weeks ago, and was very happy to meet this model again. It was a pleasure to build for a resin kit, with a very good fit and a very few issue (maybe the only issues were my fault). The painting was not easy though, as i had to cut masks for everything, and the yellow wings also ask for a lot of masking. Yellow is definitely not an easy color to paint. It is almost translucent, and even the tiniest bit of dust is visible. The olive drab color is a mix with british dark earth and US olive drab, to get something a bit khaki. The white is also a mix to get something more creamy, and the yellow as well (pure yellow + a bit of orange). Of course it's straight of the box, except a few things, like the antennas, and of course the rigging. This aircraft is not the easiest to rig, especially just in front of the cockpit, as there is a very few space between the upperwing and the engine cowling. It's a bit like building a boat model in a bottle. The control cables are EZ line, the structure rigging is Prym flat elastic wire and the antennas are Uschi elastic wire. The turnbuckles are basically brass microtube cut to lenght, and they are not present everywhere as some rigging points were inside of the fuselage. Now i can jump on the next build to be finished, and i think it will be another Curtiss bird, as i have a P-36A about 75% build. Here is a link to the WIP thread : http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=54237
  4. Hi guys, I am happy to present here my finished Stearman from Silver Wings WIP build thread you can find here Overall it is a nice kit, which comes together really well, with no fit issues. Even though that I planned this build as a quick one, in the end it took me almost 3 months to finish and despite a few minor obstacles described in the WIP I really enjoyed this building. And although it is not perfectly built, I am happy with the result Painted mainly with Gunze C, weathering stuff from AMMO. and thanks go to Steve for his valuable advice and recommendations during the build. Thanks for looking and all your comments jan thanks for looking jan
  5. Hi guys, was thinking about easy project to run it together with my bigger projects just to relax a little bit and be able to complete the model rather than a few months and because Steaman is one of my favourite aircraft I have decided to start Silver Wings all resin beauty my aim is this one... Just some snap shots of kit content Im plan to build it OOB except to HGW seatbelts. For smaller part CA glue will be used, for main parts HP epoxy, and Gunze C paints and some subtle weathering for finish have started with engine, upper wing and cokpit so far great fit, little bit of cleaning, but no issues the only challenge are the instructions hand drawings, for smaller parts really unclear thanks for looking jan
  6. Hi all, Here she is. All finished. The resin Silver Wings 1/32 Fokker D.21. Started this kit on april 29 and finished today. So about 2,5 months. A joy to build. Great fit but challenging instructions. Take your time and you'll be fine. I added: • Master barrels turned brass gun barrels (2 sets). • Some minor details on the door (locks, hinge, etc..) That's it. Used Gunze paints all over and AK interactive panel washes. Also AK Interactive lense crystal clear and transparent red and green for the navigation lights. The aerial is EZ-line. Build log here: http://forum.largesc...kker-d21/page-1 Cheers! Jeroen
  7. Hi all, Right in the middle of building the Silver Wings Fokker D.21 kit I reviewed recently. The fit is great. The instructions can be challenging. Instrument panel with Ammo Crystal Clear: Rudder controls, stick and floor boards: Some fitting: The Bristol Mercury engine: More pics here: http://forum.largescalemodeller.com/topic/3688-silver-wings-132-fokker-d21/ Cheers, Jeroen
