time to reveal my projects regarding next years upcoming events. Like i said in my Tamiya F-4J topic, this project would be put next aside for some time. This regarding a dead line i have to make to finish some in-flight projects.
Next year here in Belgium there will be a very big militarily exposition held on the reserve NATO airstrip in Ursel, Belgium. Most of this event exists of armor related millitaria, and a minor part of one collector who's collect Flight gear clothing and helmets. Next year, this will be expands to a whole different level of experience regarding the age of military flight gear. We are in full progress of organizing the biggest exposition of millitary flight gear in Europe together with our beloved modeling hobby. The biggest collection of unique flight gear will be show to the public together with lot's of models that will show the hardware where these pilots had flown in.
Lot's of collectors have all ready signed in, same with lot's of modelers and club's and we are still contacting people to sign in. Iff you guy's are interested, please go take a look at our facebook page and sign in.
Ok, now for my own project. I will attend this show with some of my flight helmets and models. One of them will be a HGU-2A/P with MBU-5/P oxygen mask and a in flight German Starfighter from JaboG 34 'Allgau'.
I got this helmet a couple of months ago, and i still don't know which pilot or unit this belonged to. So my idea was to paint it in the colors of JaboG 34. This unit was one of the only unit's to paint frequently their helmets in Red or Blue colors. They used the city shield of Memmingen, the city where their base was situated.
Only the visor covers where painted with red (1th Staffel) or Blue (2th Staffel) like this example, 3th from left
I will used the well know Italeri kit whiteout any aftermarket, except for DACO decals.
And some reference
Basic cockpit lay-out
and basic Martin baker ejection seat
Pilot is a Tamiya example, and this is the end result
