  1. Recently completed the Eduard Tempest Mk.V series 2. A great kit however the AMS struck so I completed it with some aftermarket; PE flaps from Eduard, wheels, seat, radiator and exhausts from Barracuda studios. The squadron letters and serial are from Dutch Decal to represent the machine of Jan Linzel. This was a "Mayflyer" who managed to escape to the UK and flew with 33 squadron of the RAF. Approved by "Kitty" A fine cockpit OOB but not much can be seen when the fuselage is closed.
  2. Great progress so far Jos! looking forward to the paint job. erik
  3. Fantastic result! If it was 1/48 I would have said looks like a 1/32 Schwalbe! Respect for your work! Erik
  4. Thanks for your comment Duncan! I have the Anton in the stash too and eager to build it. When choosing the NMF Spanish version there will be a lot of work to get the surface good enough for the metal paints.. Nothing fits like a glove on this kit. Erik Thanks Mike your too kind! Erik HI John, thank mate! No not exactly a shake and bake kit but I think it still is the best early 109 around. Maybe the new Ukranian/Russian kits are better but this one has a lot of very nice resin and low parts count. Don't know
  5. Fantastic Schwalbe!! Looks great in natural metal and the putty! erik
  6. Yes I believe they moved to the training units when war really got off. Thanks for you comment! erik
  7. A colourful beauty! Great paintwork and a neat and tidy build. erik
  8. Fantastic! That colour scheme looks great on the Meteor. Well done Pete! Erik
  9. Great job! A beautiful model of a fantastic aircraft. pity about the decals, didn’t expected that. Erik
  10. I'm just an average modeller Meatbox, take your time and have fun when modelling! Erik
  11. Thanks Woody! Yes I like the earlier variants too. There are too much Emils hanging around already! Hi Michal, thanks! Well this one was a nightfighter in the early days of May 1940 over Norway. Served at 12(N)JG2 if I am correct! There were couple of difficulties with the fit and stuff but nothing spectacular.

  12. For the same group build were I participated with the V-tail 109 I also build the Classic Airframes Bf 109D, OOB except for the decals. Erik
