      Ongoing DDoS Attack causing Forum Slowness   26/04/17

      In case you have missed the announcement, the reason that the forum has been slow at times since the minor version update the other day is due to a Denial of Service attack, brute force attack on our email, and judging by the lag with our FTP response, that too.  If you're feeling like you're experiencing a glitch in the Matrix, you're not wrong.  This is the same MO as the attack in September 2016 that occurred when we transitioned to the new version 4 of the software.  We're currently working with US and UK cyber-crime departments, who specialise in this sort of thing, and we're hopeful that we'll be able to track them down this time by using the accumulated evidence already held.    We are pretty certain that it's a continuation of the same attack last year, only at a reduced intensity to deter people from using the site "because it's terribly slow", rather than taking it down completely, and we're also sure of the motivations of those responsible.  Spite.   Please bear with us in the interim, and wish us luck in dealing with these.... "people".

  1. 1/72 AZ 109's built out of box with a slight fattening of the nose and leading edge of wing. Still learning plenty through trial and error regarding clear coats and weathering (or lack of). Theses 2 builds were mostly complete about 9 months ago, but suffered a stall due to a loss of enthusiasm. They were finished very early this year, and I wanted to re-learn how to post pics for participation in the 109 group build. IAR Brasov assembled Bf 109Ga-2 "White A" was the personal mount of Capt Av Cantacuzino April-May 1944. Kit supplied decals, hair antennae (last time ever), PV glue navigation lights. Bf109G-6 Trop of 364a Squadriglia, 150 Gruppo, 53 Stormo of the Regia Aeronautica in Italy 1943. Piloted by Mario Bellagambi. Sky Decals, (thick) hair antennae, PV glue nav lights. Thanks for looking.
  2. Hi all Sirs, here my latest tiny beast. Absolute love for these new kits from Airfix. I still had no idea on how to proceed, this way I gave a (wrong) paintcoat to the interiors, and closed the fuselage. Then taking things a bit more calm, a bit of putty was thinned in water and spread in 1 to 3 coats into gaps, avoiding overdoing. This way only some cleaning of the excess with ethanol was enough for a neat surface on wing roots. The bomb support provided into the box,cut and resized, is welcome to build the "drop" for a camera equipped machine Cartridge ejectors pierced into the lower wing.
  3. 1/72 Messerschmitt Bf 109 line as part of the Eduard 1/72 revolution Bf 109F-2/F-4/G-2/G-4 versions confirmed - in 3D construction source: post 26531) 26.06.2015-13:08 S.199 is confirmed as a future release for later time with the 1/72 MiG-21 line
  4. HI everybody; here's my latest off the bench, Academy's 1/48 Messerschmitt BF 109 G6, in the markings of Erich Hartmann's Yellow 1. The kit is actually an Academy re-boxing of the original Hobbycraft; not much trouble building it, but it's oversimplified in terms of details. The idea was to do a quick build and practice painting the German mottling camouflage ... but couldn't resist and I added some scratch built items. The WIP thread is here, if anyone's interested in. Scratch built items: - Pitot tube (using a prescription needle mounted on the kit plastic shaft) - Navigation lights - Wheel wells struts and canvas covers - Main wheels break lines - Seatbelts (out oh lead foil coming from a wine bottle cap) - Fuel pipe inside the cockpit, plus various other interiors bit - Open canopy holding cable plus other minor things. Aerial was done using one of my eldest daughter hair. The crosses have been painted, doing my own mask; same goes for the ventral yellow band. The kit itself was painted using mostly Tamiya Acrylics, with an airbrush; detail painting by brush, using mainly Lifecolor. The Swastikas were not provided in the kit decals, so I used some from an Eduard FW190 kit; for this reason, they are the wrong kind and size, but since this was all an experiment, I figured I wanted to test how Eduard's decal would react (much better than Academy ones, by the way) Enjoy! Any comments welcome Some pics on an old base I had laying around Sorry for the mess up, I inadvertently posted while still writing Ciao
  5. Since I finished my brace of Spitfires I thought I'd have a go at an idea I've had kicking around for a while, combining a rag wing Hurricane and a Messerschmit bf109 with an old stand I had lying around. This was supposed to be done a while back to clear out time for a Battle of Britain build but when do we ever stick to any schedule we plan? Both kits are the new tools from Airfix, the 109 is the starter kit edition. Both are good builds, very easy and go together quickly, though how the top and bottom of the wings on the Hurricane have wound up different sizes is beyond me. This was done as a first experiment with weathering more than anything so the finish on both is a bit scrappier than I would normally aim for and I wasn't sure if I was going to put them up here but I'm generally pleased with the result so thought I may as well. Hurri first This was finished first and so is my first attempt at weathering. This was in no way because it represents a fighter operating away from home for some time so I could get away with being a little heavy handed. Also, the port red gun decal went missing mysteriously overnight after application so had to paint a red patch which is a bit scrappy. The 109 Again, not the best finish but not what I was aiming for with this one. And the finished article Had fun with these and looking forward to working on these skills in the future. Thanks for looking.
  6. Having built a few of the (newish) 1/72 Airfix 109E-4/7 kits I wanted to do an E-1. Rather than try and find a E-1 kit, or use an E-3, I decided I would have a go at modifying an Airfix E-4. This required a change of canopy to the earlier style, and removal of the 20mm cannon, as the E-1 had 7.92mm MG 17's in the wings. I had in my stash a couple of E-1 style vac canopies to suit Heller, Matchbox and Airfix 109, but I believe that this must be for the older tool kit, as the vac canopy was a bit narrow. I have an Avis 109D kit in the stash and it has 2 canopies in it (not sure why). So I used one of these as it fit okay and while not great, it was acceptable by my standards. I did a work in progress, but can't figure out how to link here. It was an enjoyable build,however next time I think I will use a Tamiya E-3. Built as Yellow 14 of 6 (J) TrGr 186 1939-40 using Print Scale decals. Painted with GUNZE aqueous RLM 70/71/65. This is the first time I have used these paints on the exterior of a model, and they spray beautifully.

  8. Hello I would appreciate Your opinions concerning this can of worms..... Based on my references,I am being offered between two different camo schemes for this 109G-14; first is 82/83/76 and the other 74/75/76. Now what would be most obvious choice,the 82/83 sounds suspicious,it is the option given by decal sheet. The new AZ Model G-14 1/72 scale has the normal three grey option. My only resources are two b/w pics where this 109 has taller (wooden) rudder but with shorter tailwheel and Erla canopy. This is either 4.JG 3 or 10.JG 3 plane and Werkenummer is 462919 and its number is white 7 and vertical line (or cross bar). Any opinions would be highly welcome. TIA Teemu H
  9. I recently posted my Spitfire Vb. Here Is the 109F. Some Unhappy with the canopy and I'm hoping to attempt a different approach with my next build. I'm still not happy with the finish. I think that none of the mistakes right at the end where I am perhaps into much of a rush to finish the model. On this bold tried some new techniques on the undersurface. Despite having looked at a number of photographs I turned down the exhaust staining and the overall weathering for this build. I found myself in Hobby Craft with the wife and spotted some place in the bridal section. This makes for superb grill affects and 2 meetings cost a couple equipped. It will last forever. I bought a few different types. I used a small piece to cover the air filter and am pretty happy with the result. As always I am hap to receive comments, criticisms and pointers which I can apply in my next build. I await your feedback. This was my first attempt at painting a pilot
  10. Ok folks, here we go...I haven't been around my modelling bench much lately for one reason or another, so I thought I'd mark my return with a traditional Deanflyer bit of silliness... I think we all know about Matchbox two colour kits, don't we? How the good people at Matchbox thought that having two different colours of plastic negated the need for painting? Well, I'm not really into 1/72 scale, so I thought it'd be interesting to build a larger and more up to date kit, but do it as Mr Matchbox intended. At Cosford, I secured a second hand Tamiya 1/48 109E and two appropriate pots of paint. So here we go, a Tamiya kit painted like a Matchbox kit... Construction progressed speedily: A slightly tricky bit of masking was required due to the strange way that the wings attach on the Matchbox kit...completely different to the one piece lower wing of the Tamiya kit, so I had to paint it to represent this: Eventually it was all together, and coated with Klear: I then added the decals, being careful to use only those that were included in the Matchbox kit - so, no stencils or swastikas. I was going to overcoat the decals with Klear afterwards, but I decided to leave them as that'd be closer to what Matchbox envisaged. So here we are, a 1/48 scale model painted to represent a 1/72 scale model: So what do you reckon? Daft enough...? Cheers, Dean
  11. Here is my latest completed model. Inspired by Deanflyer's impressive Tamiya/Matchbox Bf109, I blew off the dust from an old Hasegawa 109E box and got cracking. I'd always wanted to build this particular plane - I have the original boxing of this still in the stash, and I've wanted to build this for at least 15 years and never got to it. Carpe Weekium, and it is complete. The old Hasegawa decals were not only cream (as usual) but refused to stick or respond to MicroSet/Sol. So, I used a combination of Eduard stencils and national markings, and some markings from Sky decals. I kept this very simple, adding only the aforementioned decals, an Ultracast resin 109E seat and some judicious use of wire to add some details. I simply drilled out the gun barrels rather than adding Master Brass barrrels. I used a combination of WEM RLM enamels and Humbrol enamels for the paint. The WEM enamels are great, so much better than the Xtracolour enamels (for me anyway). Oblt Otto Bertram was appointed Staffelkapitan of 1./JG2 on 26 October 1939. He claimed his first aerial victory of WWII on 20 April 1940, downing a Morane 406 over St Avold. He went on to claim four victories in the Battle of France and in total claimed 22 aerial victories during the war. On 28 October 1940 as a Hauptmann in charge of III./JG 2 Otto Bertram was awarded the Knight's Cross of The Iron Cross. He was also sent back from active duty as both his brothers had been killed (both were in the Luftwaffe). He never saw combat again, fulfilling mostly administrative and training roles in the Luftwaffe. Otto Bertram finished the war as a Major and passed away on 8 February 1987 in Freiburg im Breisgau, aged 80. The boxing I used, which contains generic 109E-3/4 sprues. 'Bonzo the Dog' was a cartoon by Briton George Studdy, and pictures graced both German and British planes in the war. That awesome silhouette... I added the canopy retaining wire. Classic early war 'splinter' of RLM 71 Dunkelgrun and RLM 02 Grau. This plane the walkways on the wing in RLM 70 Shwarzgrun. The wing crosses are also quite far out compared to later markings.
  12. Something I've just completed. These new mould Airfix kits are great value and build into nice looking models with little effort Shane
