  1. Hi all. This will be my first WIP post and will actually be a bit of a catch up, since I started this build back in February and have made progress up to the point of painting. So, if anything glaringly wrong is found in these next few posts, it may be too late to fix! The subject aircraft this Bf109E-4B of 5/JG51 depicted below from the Kagero BoB Volume 3 Topcolours series. The rather unique inscription on the side says "Achtung Anfänger" which translates to a rather ambiguous "Caution or Beware Beginners". It could mean "if you are beginners, watch out!" or it may be "we are beginners so stay clear!"?The other interesting feature is what appears to be an unpainted (or lightly painted) cowl covering the MG17s. Recent discussions I've had Dave (tango 98) has led me to conclude that the cowl was likely a factory replacement part and that Kagero's interpretation that the cowl was painted entirely in RLM 65 is probably correct. The kit used for this project is Eduard's 1/48 Bf109E-4 which is rather nice. The cockpit and other areas are enhanced with penty of nice PE details including the pedals, scuff pads and oil cooler grilles. Eduard have provided a duct for the latter, a nice detail, so you won't see up into the engine. I didn't get Eduard's additional PE detail set but I went and embellished the cockpit walls a bit, adding oxygen tubing on the starboard side and a scratch built throttle quadrant and levers on the port side. The trim wheel and O2 regulator have been added here. Eduard would have you glue the trim wheel chains to the sidewalls but I decided to glue them to the floor assembly. I'll leave it at that for this first post and chuck some more pics up here soon. Thanks for watching. Andy

  7. Hello guys; After my last model built (Bf109E7 1/32 Eduard), I spent a little time working in this beautiful kit. I used interior and surfaces sets by Aires, Barracuda mainwheels, flaps by quickboost and Mastel PL barrels. Xtradecal decals was used. Cheers!
  8. Kit manufacture: Eduard Profipack Scale: 1/48 Type: BF 109G-6 Extras used: Eduard Brassin prop and spinner. Spiral mask Paints and colours used: All MRP, apart from detail and another that made its way into the photo booth. Again, MRP used throughout. I wouldn’t bother buying the spinner and prop as aftermarket again, but the spiral mask was superb. Model depicts W.Nr. 411960, flown by Hptm.

  9. Hello guys; This is my latest build: an Eduard Emil 1/32. It is a honest kit with good assembly. I used this followings adds: - Eduard Brassin Engine Set; - Eduard Brassin MG 17 Mount; - Eduard Brassin Wheels - Aires interior resin set; - Kagero and kit decals; - RB Productions belts and; - Master Barrels (MG17). I used a mix Tamiya paints. The version chose is a Black 10 JG27, Libya 1941. This aircraft was painting with a desert camuflage, probably Italian paints. I had dificult in use Eduard Brassin Engine set. I don't understand, but the engine fittings is very bad. I spent three months in this job. All steps are posted in this Brazilian group building forum: http://webkits.hoop.la/topic/gb-08-bf109e-7-trop-eduard-1-32?page=1 Thanks for watching! Cheers!
  10. Right folks - she's done - this is my entry for the BF109 GB. All completed now and built totally out of box with the addition of some quickboost exhausts as the kit ones were poor and the addition of stretched sprue aerials. Hope you enjoy and as always your comments and feedback are much appreciated. The WiP for the build can be found here
  11. 109 over Greece (1/48 Airfix Bf109 E4) Here's my contribution to the GB folks - hope you enjoy
  12. We're waiting for our preferred supplier to get the latest Eduard kits as they will be plenty cheaper than Hannants. We've put them in our future release section with the prices we expect them to be. The kits are the 1/48 Bf109G-4 Profipack and Hellcat Mk I Weekend. The original 1/48 Spitfire Profipack (IXc Late) Profipack has been re-released and we'll be restocking on them too. The 1/72 Spitfire IX triple set (Boys are back in town), I think is out later in the month and it's also in our future release section with provisional price. If you are interested in any of the new kits, please visit the new release section of our website and enter your email in the box provided. If you want more than one of any kit, you will need to let us know that, so we can get extra in. http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk thanks Mike
  13. And we're off......Well, now that I have managed to complete the Vampire for the De Havilland GB - I can crack on with the Bf109. Below is the kit that I am building: I'm just going for OOB on this one and so far the kit has proved to be excellent and is going together without any hassles. I've made a start by beginning with cockpit and managed to get that completed today - pics as follows: The kit is going together like a dream - in fact I don't think I've ever had two fuselage halves go together better than with this model - the tolerances make for a perfect fit. I'm currently busy bringing all the fuselage, wings etc together so I'll look to update with more photos once I've made some more progress. Kris

  16. 35bis

    The idea is to do the same plane in two moments of its operating life in the ARR. It will be always "yellow 35", a BF-109E-3, just arrived in Bucharest in the spring of 1941 and then in the vicinity of Stalingrad in November 1942 when it was shot down with his pilot Adj. Av. Marin Eftimescu, from the Russian counter-aircraft. The two kits, virtually identical, are ParcModels Bf-109E3/4 1:72(ex-ICM). Some pictures:
  17. I built this Airfix Starter set 109 for our club's build a model in a day. This was a couple of years ago, we haven't done it for a while. Start at 9am on a Sunday and finish by 430. The first year a couple of guys adjourned to the local hostelry at lunchtime but no one repeated that mistake subsequently. Anyway this was built and painted with the suplied paints within the time limit, though didnt place in the results. You may be able to spot the tail strut that's stretched sprue as the Village Hall Wooden Floor Monster stole the original. Cheers Will
  18. The latest batch of Eduard kits have arrived today at MJW Models - see the list below for details 1/48 Bf109F-2 Profipack £20.40 1/48 Fokker F.1 Weekend £14.40 1/72 Avia B.534 Early Dual combo Profipack £19.10 Note how the 1/48 Bf109F-2 is over £7 cheaper than at the big H!!! Also we have an issue with broken parts on the Fokker kits and we will be contacting Eduard and our Suppliers about it in the morning. thanks Mike
  19. Bf109G-10 Props... Wood or Metal?

    What the title asks. I am trying to finish up a project and was wondering if the G10 props were metal or wood.
  20. Wolf-Dietrich Huy, (2 August 1917-13 July 2003) was a German Luftwaffe ace and one of the pilots decorated with the Iron Cross during World War II. Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross and its higher grade Oak Leaves was awarded to recognize extreme courage in battle and its military leadership. In August 1942 he returned to JG 77 after recovering from his wounds, and shortly after his unit was transferred to North Africa. October 28, 1942 he shot down his first Spitfire Egypt. Huy was shot down by a Supermarine Spitfire Vc of No. 601 Squadron, piloted by P / O JH Nicholls (an additional 7-kill ace) October 29, 1942 on the area of El Alamein. He survived the crash and spent the rest of World War II as a prisoner of war. Source: Wikipedia The kit is the familiar AZ Model, here in the G2-R6 version. Apart from the cowling too thin (in profile) and canopy narrower than the fuselage I'm not aware of any other errors / problems. For coloring I chose to follow the AZ instructions: RLM 70/71/83 trunk of lower tail / 76, white band in the fuselage, white wing tips. But first photos with sprue, selected profile: Fonte: http://www.airwar.ru

  24. Luftwaffe Day at Paine Field

    Made a weekend of driving down from Vancouver to Everett for Luftwaffe Day at Paine Field. Beautiful Friday evening over looking the water sipping beverages, Saturday the air show, Sunday Chain Lakes Loop at Mt. Baker. Overall a super enjoyable weekend. Three planes flew, Bf 109 E-3, Fw 190 A-5 and the Fieseler Fi 156 C-2 Storch. Very impressed with the short take off and landing of the Storch, another kit on the list..... As a car guy, listening to the inverted V and Radial engines was music to the ears. Such a difference between the two, loved it. Many planes and some armor on display, lots of historical data. A very professional, clean and courteous event to attend, highly recommend.Several vintage Porsches, Bmws and Vws were on display for the day too. Building two Bf 109s at the moment and picked up some nice detail. Of particular interest was the inner wheel well of the 109 which to my surprise (not sure why) was lined with an olive coloured canvas. All the planes are restored to pristine showroom condition through the Foundation's choice (not weathered). Part of the talk on the Fw was they all leaked oil straight from the factory. Sure enough, after the flight, nice clean oil leaking out of several locations, all over the gorgeous paint. Certainly would not score you well at the collector car show. Jacques Littlefield's Hetzer is now part of the Paul Allen collection. As a bonus it drove around a gravel field and fired the canon. Would upload some photos but don't know how, will work on that. Plan to attend next year's Battle of Britain event. Overall a great value and fun for $12.00 usd.
  25. My grandfather was a navigator on Halifax bombers. One of his activites post war was reading war diaries, many of which were by German authors. I have quite a few, so many that a friend of mine refers to my bookcase as 'the National Socialist Lending Library'. :-D One of the books that I love most in my life is I flew for the Fuhrer. It is well written, accurate, eye wateringly honest (my 1953 1st ed. pulls no punches in his admiration for the Nazi system or his beliefs) and very enjoyable. I am sure most of you on here are aware of it, but for those that are not it is a really good window into the otherside of the air war over Germany and a vivid description of what happens to you when air superiority can no longer me maintained. Much like J.E. Johnstone he is honest enough to acknowledge that his survival was due in part to missing the Battle of Britain. I have re-read it countless times, and along with Desmond Scott's 'Typhoon Pilot' feel it is one of the outstanding books of the 2nd war.
