  1. The Boeing B-17 STGB

    Sure Tony, and bringing a Frog kit to a GB is definitely recommendable I wish you all the best in your search for parts and accessories. Doesn't Kits World do E decals? V-P Edit: check the formation assembly ship "Birmingham Blitzkrieg" too - that should be an E?
  2. Moving this would vacate its lot here at the GB section, so why don´t you just open a new thread at WIP section and insert a link to this one in your opening post there. That´s the common way to do it. V-P
  3. 1/48 Eduard Bf109E-3 JG53 November, 1939

    Kent that´s just a GB deadline, nothing more serious than that, they come and go - when you get that plane finished it´ll be beautiful forever . V-P

    Thanks for the extra week, Enzo, I hope I made good of it! Here´s a comparison pic of a German and a Finnish way to decorate tails... ...and noses! No more build pics, that was it. Thanks guys! V-P

  9. I'm going to an orthopedic surgery on the 21st this month and will most likely be unable to build anything in the following few weeks, so I have one week to give to this kit - let's see what happens! I'll open my thread with a pic of my references and a progress pic, how far I got in one hour. Regards, V-P
  10. A swarm from 3./HLeLv 24 - Fin(n)ished

    Not just because the quartet is now FINISHED! but also because of the way that pic was posted: I took a pic with my phone, uploaded it using Flickr mobile app and then copied the url to be posted above EDIT: using my phone to post it here @ BM :end EDIT - and it worked! There's not only life after the Pb, there's a better life now! Pics appear in the Gallery later but today Best regards, V-P
  11. A swarm from 3./HLeLv 24 - Fin(n)ished

    Very strong intentions of finishing all four, albeit with a major loss of quality in exchange for the quantity Just some decals to add and then they're done! V-P
  12. Looking very good V-P
  13. A Schwarm of Hasegawa Bf109Gs

    Which means this was worth participating V-P
  14. As a first aid kit, here's a link http://www.pienoismallit.net/keskustelut/9525_revellin-ju-88-1-32-suomi-projekti/?offset=20 to a Finnish forum conversation regarding our Ju 88:s. Actually just some pics are worth looking at... I don't know why the gun would be removed. Looking at the pics of -252 especially the rear quarter view makes me wonder, if it's taken after the September -44 armistice and the yellow fuselage band is overpainted already. What do you think? It's not very neat? V-P
  15. Hi, I´m not an expert, but the MG-FF:s were definitely factory mounted and standard type. I believe the early version, not used by us Finns, had the gun poking through starboard lower corner of front glazing, effectively using all the floor space devoted for the observer. See ICM 1:48 Ju 88 A-5 kit for details. Later it was transferred lower, to poke through front of underfloor gondola a.k.a BoLa. It was operated/serviced via an opening in front of observers chair, with the drum magazine above the floor level. Please note the front of BoLa is more sharply angled and not as round as the regular one in shape. Unfortunately my online- pics went offline with the demise of Photobucket. I´ll see what I can find and post it if it´s worth it. Regards, V-P
