      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".

1/32 Hasegawa Bf 109G-2

8 posts in this topic

Well i have cleared the bench for a start in the group build.

 

This kit contains some sprues from the newer F release, including wheels and improved spinner.

This will be my first attempt at a 1/32 scale kit, and should ( if all goes okay) be my first build with ( included ) pilot on board.

I may even pose it with landing gear up (on a pole), but intend to keep it mostly free from aftermarket.

 

I like the Finnish options, though I'm not sure about the decal quality.

It will be built as an aircraft serving with JG5, maybe 109G-2/R-6, yellow 10  W.Nr 14800 used by Ofw Fw Hans Dobrich

 

A small start was made, but the pilot needs to pull himself together if we are to have any chance of success.

So big compared to a 1/72 E-4 wing.

Welcome! One minor comment; A JG5 plane is not a Finnish option, but a flown and fought in Finland German option. I like your choice a lot anyway! Best regards, V-P

Hey V-P,

Surely to think that Jagdgeschwader 5 was a component of the Ilmavoimat would require more than "minor comment" (especially from a Finn hosting a Messerschmitt group build).:thumbsup:

 

I perhaps should have put a space between those two sentences.

 

My comment regarding Finnish options, was about the kit supplied decals. These appear to be thick, matt with glossy sections, and the grey background style has a green hue.

 

I am most interested in the Arctic theatre air war and the creation of JG5 as the Luftwaffe fighter component.

Thus JG5 aircraft make up a high percentage of my builds.

The relationship between all combatants in that theatre is very interesting (and overlooked), but something I am keen to learn more about.

 

kind regards

Wayne

Glad to hear that.

 

I have a few 1/32 109 kits, including Revell G-6 and G-10, and Trumpeter G-2.

I chose this one as my first 1/32 build as i figured (hoped) it would be the least troublesome.

 

cheers

Wayne

Fortunately, as I'm not very good in German, the memoires of Walter Schuck and Günther Scholz (his name out of my memory...) are translated and published in Finnish. I just received an email from that publisher announcing one of Ritterkreuzträger, Oblt Döbrich from JG5, to be out in a few weeks. I have a Kuivalainen decal set for six JG5 Emils... But 0 Emils in my modest stash! V-P

I have the memoirs of Schuck and Scholz along with a few other books relating to the Eismeer front operations.

 

I wonder if the book of Ritterkreuzträger, Oblt Döbrich will ever be released in English.

Something you may need to fix :smile:

A good start with one of the best builds around. You can t go wrong with the Hasegawa F/G/K family in 1:32.
