      PhotoBucket are no longer permitting 3rd party hosting   01/07/17

      As most of you are now painfully aware, Photobucket (PB) are stopping/have stopped allowing their members to link their accumulated years of photos into forums and the like, which they call 3rd party linking.  You can give them a non-refundable $399 a year to allow links, but I doubt that many will be rushing to take them up on that offer.  If you've previously paid them for the Pro account, it looks like you've got until your renewal to find another place to host your files, but you too will be subject to this ban unless you fork over a lot of cash.   PB seem to be making a concerted move to another type of customer, having been the butt of much displeasure over the years of a constantly worsening user interface, sloth and advertising pop-ups, with the result that they clearly don't give a hoot about the free members anymore.  If you don't have web space included in your internet package, you need to start looking for another photo host, but choose carefully, as some may follow suit and ditch their "free" members at some point.  The lesson there is keep local backups on your hard drive of everything you upload, so you can walk away if the same thing happens.   There's a thread on the subject here, so please use that to curse them, look for solutions or generall grouse about their mental capacity.   Not a nice situation for the forum users that hosted all their photos there, and there will now be a host of useless threads that relied heavily on photos from PB, but as there's not much we can do other than petition for a more equitable solution, I suggest we make the best of what we have and move on.  One thing is for certain.  It won't win them any friends, but they may not care at this point.    Mike.

  4. Finished this recently, it's the Brengun 1/72 Zlin Z-50 aerobatic aircraft. The complex colour-scheme was simplified by the use of Brengun's masking set, and their vac canopy and PE set were also used. It's a tiny little thing when finished.

  7. Hello again, Here is my Hawker Typhoon 1B, Its the Brengun kit, which looked really nice on the sprues. Good subtle recessed external detail, and great internal details in the pit and wheel wells. Unfortunately it didn't fit as well as it looked! Most parts needed sanding to fit within their component settings. That is the wheel wells and the cockpit structures both needed lots of dry fitting sanding before committing glue anywhere near the respective parts. It was a real battle to get this little beast together. Having said that it turned out not too badly, and in the hands of a better modeler could be a fine looking example. Anyway heres the pictures, thanks for looking. Cheers Greg All comments welcolme

  10. Hello, this is Czech manufacturer Brengun's new-ish 1/72 Yakolew Yak-1, Series 2, 1942 production. This kit is a little bit more expensive then your average short-run model - you'll find out why as soon as you open the box. It contains a very nice photo etch fret with finely detailed parts for the interior, the landing gear covers as well as lower wing surface panels. The box offers three decal options, all of them in the usual (and rather unspectacular) Green/Dark Grey scheme. I used Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics for painting, choosing H303 for the Green and H331 for the darker colour. According to the 'scale effect', I used H331 Dark Grey (with a drop of White added for the faded effect) instead of Black. The fit is unproblematic, all the interior bits go into the fuselage without extra work. You'll have to sand down the wing roots a little bit, to make the upper wings click into place without tension. While the Yak-1 is a rather unspectacular aircraft, I'm quite happy that Brengun provide us with an up-to-date rendition. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel (IGM Cars & Bikes). Cheers from Vienna!

  13. Hello, and thanks for your interest in this topic. Here's my rendition of AZ Model's latest release of the 109 Series - this is the G-14AS. As far as I am aware this type has never been available as an injection molded kit before. I added Brengun phot-etch for various details, such as antennas, flaps and interior pieces. The pitot tube is from Master Models. The model was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. This patricular aircraft is well documented. There are a number of period photographs. Some of the technical details visible are: - missing cover of the tail wheel well - T3 rudder without trim tabs (these were removed from the plastic) The aircraft patricipated in "Operation Bodenplatte" in January 1945. Piloted by Uffz. Herbert Maxis, White 13 was shot down by an American AA battery. Herbert Maxis' tragic faith is documented here: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=97812831 "White 13" was buried in a trench and re-discovered in 1987. The remaining parts of the airframe were restored with parts from other German aircraft and is currently on display in the AVIATICUM Museum in Wiener Neustadt, Lower Austria. Creating the characteristic "sawtooth pattern" on the leading edges of the wings is quite a challenge, in this scale. The rudder has some light colored blotches over the RLM75/83 camoflage. To replicate this, I painted the entire rudder RLM76 (Light Blue) first. Then, small pieces of Blu Tac were applied to cover those places to remain in light color. Then, the other colors were sprayed over. The fuselage has a different tone of RLM76. This seems to be the greenish variant, sometimes referred to as "RLM84". This color was mixed using RLM02 (Grey/Green) and pure White. The undersides are natural metal, I used Alclad paints here. Note the black Balkenkreuze without outlines. All photographs: Wolfgang Rabel, IGM Cars & Bikes Vienna. Thanks for lookin'! Have a good day! Roman
  14. Hello, here's another 1/72 AZ Model Bf-109 from my workbench, finished in late April. I used Brengun photo etch for various details and Master Model gun barrels and pitot tube. Decals are from AZ's boxing, the model was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Weathering with artists' oils. Photographs by Mr. Wofgang Rabel of IGM Cars & Bikes, thank you! The fuselage crosses, as supplied by AZ Model, already have colored insides; these colors never match with my paints. Therefore, I spray my own color and use hollow white crosses as replacement: Thanks for lookin'. Have a good day!
  15. As I am building a car door Tiffy in 1/48, I thought some bubble canopy Typhoons will be a nice addition. Build two and three for this GB are therefor two 1/72 Typhoons with D-day markings (or what's left of it). The first of the duo is Typhoon Mk.IB PR-M from No.609 Squadron operated from Thorney Island on 6 June 1944. It is interesting that in the Osprey book it has the serial MR131 and on the Xtradecal sheet MR130 - what is correct? Unfortunately the only picture I found is of rather poor quality - but better than nothing. But it shows that the D-day stripes are crudely painted on by brush or broom! I will use the Brengun kit for MR131. It is the late type boxing, but the plastic also contains a three bladed prop and short chord Typhoon tail plane which is correct for MR131. This will be a OOB build as I build in 1/72 scale mainly to show camouflage and marking variations using the markings from Xtradecal 179. The second in the duo is a late production Tiffy Mk.IB MN716 F3-A from No.438 Squadron (RCAF) operated from Eindhoven during mid-October 1944 There is an excellent picture available for this aircraft. The Airfix kit will provide the parts for this build - a four bladed prop and the Tempest large tail plane. I also build it OOB with decals from Aviaeology 143 Wing decal sheet. I started this kit two years ago, but very little was done on it. It will be interesting to see how the Brengun and Airfix kit compare. Cheers, Peter
  16. NOTE TO VISITORS FROM THE FUTURE: Build notes can be found in this post. MRS. TATE [Mavis Tate, MP for Frome]: We were told yesterday that our Air Force was superior to the German air force, and I very much hope that is the case. But I am told there are Focke Wulf machines flying in German squadrons which are said to be in some respects superior to our fighters. I understand that our reply to the Focke Wulf is the Typhoon. I may be misinformed, but I should like to ask the Minister whether we have Typhoons flying in our fighter squadrons and whether they are over their teething troubles. -- Hansard, "Production", 15 July 1942 On 30 May 1943, twenty-two Fw 190s made a low-level raid on Torquay, dropping 21 bombs, killing or seriously wounding 125 people and destroying fifty buildings. One of the raiders collided with the steeple of a Roman Catholic church and then crashed into a house, and three more were brought down by anti-aircraft guns. Reginald Palk, then a schoolboy, was digging through the rubble of St Marychurch, demolished by a bomb, when "I heard the sound of more aircraft approaching...I looked up to see the fantastic sight of RAF fighters in pursuit." These were Typhoons from 257 (Burma) Squadron scrambled too late to intercept the Jabos, but now roaring after the escaping German fighters. The lead two Typhoons of the squadron's Yellow Section sighted a Fw 190 at five miles distance making for France at a speed in excess of 320 MPH. The British fighters now went to full War Emergency Power, and the big Typhoons surged after the Fw190, closing the gap from 10,000 yards to 150, whereupon the section leader fired a one and one-half second burst from his Typhoon's four 20mm cannon. The Fw190 shuddered, flipped on its back, and crashed into a cliff on the isle of Guernsey. I've always been fond of the Typhoon, something of an also-ran as far as RAF fighters go; it was unreliable and suffered from defects for almost the whole of its brief operational life, and it never really came into its own as the hoped-for Focke-Wulf killer, those laurels instead reposing upon the infinitely more beautiful Spitfire IX and the Typhoon's own younger sister, the Tempest. But in everything the Typhoon did there is for me an element of dignity and protectiveness, the air of a big man of infinite patience rolling up his sleeves as he steps forward, be it roaring after fleeing low-level raiders at speeds no German aircraft could escape or appearing out of the murk of a June morning above the 21st Panzer, confidently pushing towards the beaches of Normandy. There is a reassuring solidity to her; you know she may not be agile enough to land the hit, but you also know that when she hits, it will be hard, there'll be meaning in the blow. I was originally going to build some Eduard Fw 190s, but that seemed a bad way to start off, and begin as you mean to continue, I always say. Plus Beard seemed to want to know how the Brengun kit goes together, and I'd just gotten another one, so it seemed like fate was telling me to do what I really wanted to do anyway. I'm for once unsure what markings the aircraft will have. The kit has decals for the Typhoon of R T P "Bob" Davidson, a rather swashbuckling Canadian ace (after being shot down, he joined a Maquis group and fought with them as a private for sometime, in addition to teaching them to play poker -- but not very well, apparently, as he won 5000 francs off of them) who also flew Blenheims over Crete and Hurricanes over Ceylon and had a remarkable set of two Italian, two Japanese, and one German aircraft claimed destroyed. He later flew Sabres on exchange with the USAF over Korea and claimed several MiG-15s damaged. I also have markings from a Techmod sheet for the white-nosed Typhoon R8781, in which several pilots scored claims totalling two and one shared Bf 109. I like this one just because I think the white nose is kind of novel, and will be interesting to paint. It's also an early enough Typhoon that I wouldn't need to add the tricky-looking photoetched fishplates that Brengun thoughtfully sells seperately from the kit at a rather premium price. Photos to come.

  18. Hello and welcome to 2016! My last build from 2015, the first to be presented in the new year. Sword 1/72 Spitfire XVIe with photo etch from Brengun, Vacu canopy from Squadron and Decals from Xtradecals. Represents SM309/AU-H, “Panama Bound” of 421(Royal Canadian Air Force) Squadron in 1945. Flown by Flt.Lt. Richard “Hap” Beal. Painted with acrylics from Gunze/Mr.Hobby. Main Inspiration for this build was the model by Mr. Jekl, as seen on Britmodeller: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234949348-supermarine-spitfire-mkxvi-172-sword/ Pictures by Wolfgang Rabel of IGM Cars & Bikes. Thanks for your interest, have a good start into the new year! Cheers from Vienna Roman
  19. This is AZmodel's 72nd scale Boeing P-26. Brengun PE detail was added (mainly intererior), and resin Wasp engine from RADIAL ENGINES &WHEELS. This is a 'whif' (what if) project, story is: ... with the Canadian economy finally recovering from the Great Depression, the RCAF began pressing the government for the need to modernize their air force. Looking to their neighbours to the south, a deal was struck to procure a single aircraft for testing purposes. In exchange for the Peashooter, an undisclosed amount of beer, bacon and maple syrup was shipped across the border. regards, Jack

  22. Hello and thanks for your interest in this topic. This is my 1/72 Airfix Fw-190 A8 dressed as a "Sturmbock" of II/JG4. This particular aircraft is well documented on color pictures (seen here: http://www.clubhyper.com/reference/luftcambg_5.htm). It was piloted by Walter Wagner on January 1, 1945, participating in"Operation Bodenplatte". It was hit by flak during the attack over St. Trond airfield, when the engine died and the pilot had to make and emergency landing. The plane was captured by the US Forces and sent for evaluation. It later carried an all-red color, decals for the caputred version are available from aftermarket manufacturers as well. This aircraft had black/white/black RVT bands (denoting JG 4) and the emblem of the left side of the fuselage only. I added additional side armor from the Brengun etch set, which also provides various antennas and cockpit interior. To my chargin, the left armor plate lifted off with a "ping!" during the paint session and would not go back into position by any means, which spoils the look of the model from a certain angle. Nonetheless I decided to finish the build wtih it's flaw. The decals are from Sky Models Italy, are of reasonable quality and can be recommended. The sheet also provides the spinner spiral. Painted with acrylics from the Gunze/Mr.Hobby range, weathered with artist's oils and pastel chalks. The red blotches on the fuselage represent primer spots, as seen in the original pictures, and have been hand-painted using Vallejo colors. Pitot tube is a metal piece from Master Model. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel of IGM Cars & Bikes - a big 'thank you'! Here's some in-progress shots I took during construction stage. The fuselage halves were badly warped, evident in this picture: ... and so were the wings ... Cockpit with Brengun etch, very little can be seen afterwards: Fixing the side armor panels was a difficult task due to the curvature of the fuselage: Thanks for your interest ... and off we go for another mission in the ever expanding universe of Plastic Modelling! Until next time, take care, and all the best from Vienna/Austria! Roman
  23. After trying to build two Typhoons simultaneously a few years ago, and failing, I decided it would be easier to build four(!) at the same time. One of the four is the left-over from the first attempt, see this thread on Aeroscale: Tale of Two Tiffies . I am using three different kits: the Pavla car-door, the Brengun bubble-top, and two of the Airfix late-war version with 4 blade prop and Tempest tail planes. The schemes I have chosen are: (Top two profiles by Chris Davey from Osprey's Typhoon and Tempest Aces of World War 2 by Chris Thomas; bottom two profiles by Chris Thomas from 2nd Tactical Airforce Vol. 4 by Shores and Thomas) I have spent several days already on getting the parts to fit together, which for the Pavla kit has been a considerable hassle! The wings and fin have had to be thinned considerably, as have the cockpit areas (and still the resin cockpit doesn't fit as intended). Both the Airfix and Brengun kits mainly need the height of the wheel wells reduced to allow the wings to close properly. In the case of the Brengun, the tops surfaces were sanded to translucency, as well as the bottom edges coming up too. The Brengun has the edge over the Airfix wheel wells, and in detail and accuracy in general, but every part needed some clean-up. The Airfix open gun panels inspired me to open one wing on the Brengun kit, originally intending to use the Airfix parts in the wing. However, on closer inspection 1) they weren't a good fit, and 2) are not accurate enough. So I'll have to scratch build something. All the parts needing silver painting were stuck to sticks and airbrushed, then given a brown wash. I'm onto the cockpit painting now (black above the tubular framework, dry brushed with grey, grey-green below). The Airfix instrument panel transfers look OK, and for this scale, and considering it is really hard to see into the cockpit of the Typhoon, they will be fine.
  24. Hello and thanks for your interest, this is another marking option from AZ Model's latest G-10 "Diana" kit. It represents 'Gigi', a machine of II/JG 52, in the closing weeks of the war. I could not find a historic photograph of this machine, so I had to relate to AZ Model's paint instructions and a color profile in a Kagero book (JG 52) respectively. Photo etch parts from Brengun, vacu canopy from Rob Taurus. Painted with Gunze acrylics. Weathering with pastel chaks and artist's oils. Greetings from Vienna!

  25. Hello, this is my interpretation of "Red 4" from Grupul 7/8 Vanatoare in spring 1945. The kit is 1/72 AZ Model Bf-109 G6 with photo etch from Brengun, vacu canopy from AML, pitot tube from Master Model and decals from RB Productions (http://www.radubstore.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1_67). The aircraft was captured from retreating German forces in autumn 1944. All previous national insignia and theater markings were overpainted by the new operators. Note the overpainted Balkenkreuze on the upper wings and fuselage, the Swastika has been removed as well. The former yellow fuselage band has partly been covered with White, partly overpainted with RLM76 and additional motting applied. White wingtips added. The yellow lower cowl has been overpainted with RLM76 as well, but that wasn't done very carefully with the new paint roughly covering the cowl and some paint chipping too - a patchy affair. The tricolore on the rudder is painted on, I tried to capture the colour tone of the Roundels. A (quite blurry) photograph of this aircraft can be found here: http://www.me109.info/display.php?a=e&fid=8859 Photographs by: Wolfgang Rabel of IGM Cars & Bikes Thanks for your interest!
