  1. Airfix 1/72 Me-262 Schwalbe

    Lookin' pretty good!
  2. 1/72 AZ Model Bf-109 G-2/R6 "Romanian Air Force"

    Hello and thanks for your feedback. This model was built without modifications to the nose - just as it is in AZ's box. The main sprues are identical to those of the G-6 series with some individual parts for the G-2 added. Greetings from Vienna. Roman
  3. New Me-262 Airfix 1/72

    Great build Tony, despite the paint problems! May I suggest to remove the torquay link from the nose gear leg. These were only used on very early production 262s and replaced by shimmy dampers by early 1945. The color scheme you are modelling does not have torquay link: https://www.asisbiz.com/il2/Me-262/JG7/pages/Me-262A1a-Stab-II.JG7-Geschwaderkommodore-Theo-Weissenberger-Green-4-Germany-1945-01.html Kind regards Roman
  4. Ju 88 s-1

    The most beautiful variant of the entire Ju-88 series! Very interesting conversion, where did you get the AIMS sets? I'd talked to them at ModelBrno where they annouced a G-6 conversion (based on the Revell kit). Visiting their website I did not see anything about a 'S' conversion. Since the Hasegawa kit is hideously expensive (and difficult to find) this seems to be a good alternative.
  5. 1/72 Hasegawa Mosquito Mk.XIII Night Fighter

    Thanks for your kind comments. This kit is really interesting, as it isn't just another 'version', but actually a 'conversion', involving some plastic surgery. You need to cut the kit's parts for the nose according to instructions:
  6. 1/72 AZ Model Bf-109 G-2/R6 "Romanian Air Force"

    Yes, seems like ... your Romanian Bf-109 was truly outstanding!
  7. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is AZ Model's "Limited Edition" boxing (AZ7488) in "Romanian Air Force" markings. I added Brengun photo etch, Master pitot tube and resin wheels from AML. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Greetings from Vienna.
  8. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Hasegawa Mosquito Mk.XIII "Night Fighter" from 29. Squadron, 1945. Released as a "Limited Edition" boxing this summer, the kit contains resin parts for the wing tanks and nose. I added True Details wheels, but forgot to add the White "T" decal for the nose ... sorry. Painted with acrylics from the Gunze/Mr.Hobby range. Photos by Wolfgang Rabel of IGM Cars & Bikes. Greetings from Vienna!
  9. 1/72 Hasegawa B-26B Marauder "Flak Bait"

    Yes! I can recommend this technique, as there is no risk of damage to the paint or the plastic. It is easy to obtain and easy to use (compared with more 'professional' weathering products). You might substitute Vaseline for Nivea Créme or even Marmite (that brown stuff from down under). First, spray the basecoat (Aluminum) all over. Next, apply the chosen créme on the surface with a brush. Vaseline is transparent, so the only problem is, you don't really see what you're doing. Concentrate on those areas which will receive the most tear & wear (leading edges, engine panels, etc.). Work step-by-step, do not cover the whole airframe with Vaseline - if you put your finger in it you'll end with prints (personalized modelling then!). Here's how I did, starting on the inside, and working my way to the outer edges: To remove the créme, you simply tack tape over the surface and pull off again: I repeated the same process on the fuselage, starting on the front side: The Hasegawa kit has a very good fit and engineering, the only areas needing a little attention was the fuselage spine that has some sink-marks. Easy enough to rectify. I reckon this kit will make you happy, Mr.Happy!
  10. 1/48 me 262 a-1a u-3

    Oh my goodness! This paint scheme is really exceptional. I've tried something similar on a 72 scale model ... and failed completely. Very good job, Sir!
  11. The first Airfix Swallow I have seen finished. Thanks for showing! Looks like you had some issues with the engine/wing fit? There's a kink on the inboard nacelle-to-wing joint, more prominent on the right side. I'm building this kit at the moment, and I ran into exactly the same problems. Greets from Vienna Roman
  12. Plasticard molds, I've been watching this. Thanks for info anyway.
  13. Ouh, that's something exquisite, and not seen as a model very often. Beautiful work! How I wish I could have the same kit in 72 scale!
  14. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Hasegawa B-26B Marauder, built from the box, with the addition of Quickboost gun barrels (QB72088) and True Details wheels (TB72026). I chose to represent 'Flak Bait', a well-known and well-documented aircraft from 449th Bomb Squadron, 322nd Bomb Group, operating from an airfield in England, 1944/1945.. 'Flak Bait' flew 202 missions until the end of the war. There's a number of original photographs on the internet, depicting 'Flak Bait' in various stages of weathering and in different weapon configurations. I tried my best to replicate what I've seen. Hasegawa's gorgeous boxtop artwork was used as a guideline, too. I painted with colors from Tamiya (XF-17) and Gunze/Mr.Hobby (H52, H53). Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel, IGM Cars & Bikes. Thanks for your interest, greetings from Vienna Roman Quite a lot of nose weight was required to prevent a "tail-sitter": Assembly was easy, as the Hasegawa kit has a very decent fit. I started painting with the base color, Aluminium. Then I applied Olive Drab to the upper surfaces and Grey to the undersides. Paint chips were done using Vaseline creme.
  15. New Me-262 Airfix 1/72

    Interestingly, I have a different problem with the wings. While they seem to be a "snug fit" with your build, mine look like that:
