Could be some kind of help to detail Broncos assault glider kit. The barbed wire was a unique feature of the Eben Emanel assault, used to shorten the landing distance further than by using the brake parachute only. There was not a lot of space on top of the fortress and a veritable slope behind the edges ot the top plateau. A makeshift solution that worked well.

 

I have darkened the photos somewhat to make the details better visible. The natural color of the glider is a bit lighter.

Beside the upcoming engine walkaround for the Bücker 131: what other stuff are you interested in?

I have another Fokker D.VII walkaround, with full Lozenge outfit, some UC bay shots of a Bf-109 G, the UC of a Mig-23 plus some more details, Arado 234 cockpit replica, the He-162 cockpit, missle racks of a Me-262, a BMW-132, a lot of photos of the Gotha Go-60 replica and some bits and pieces licke He-162 bang seat, ETC for a 109, small stuff.

Any preferences?

And the R4M missle rack of a Me-262:

I guess the screw terminals are modern ones ;) But I like that the wiring is shown.

 

The 262 is a mock-up using orignal parts. Fuselage front and some UC parts are original. This is also the only 262 where you are allowed to stick your head into the UC bays. Normally are these kind of exhibits strictly fenced in like this one in Prague (yes, this is a real one):

More Me-262 photos. This is a mockup using salvaged original parts and some rebuilds.

Now I have my head and my camera inside the main wheel bay. Not the common drill in most museums, and not a common experience for most modellers :D

Leaving the 262 and going back to the Junkers F-13 replica:

That grid behind the window is just the reflection of the visitors pedestal, not a part of the aircraft. These are photos from my trip to Rechlin in 2014. if you watch closely you will see that they moved the aircraft into other rooms. Much better rooms I can say. more to come.

 

Enjoy!
