    Trainers GB (finally legal!)

    So does that mean that the typical jet conversion dual seater (TF-104, TF-102, really any TF types and dual seater Jaguars, Mirages, F-16B and so on) are out as not used by "pure" training units and also had a dual role for use in action if need be? Cheers, Peter

    Hotspot Middle East - 1946 to now GB @ 22

    Good to see that there is still continued interest. Cheers, Peter
  3. Pleased to hear. Enzo informed me that all slots for 2019 are already taken, so this GB won't happen until 2020. The wait is maybe longer than you anticipated, but it will give plenty of time to plan the build Thank you all who are participating in this GB. Cheers, Peter
  4. Done that already earlier With pleasure Silonez - you are the lucky # 25 making this GB a reality. And I am sure Valkyrie will be over the moon. Cheers, Peter
  5. That is the spirit. Now only one additional name needed to make this GB reality! Cheers, Peter

    Sharkmouth GB - 11 May to 1 September 2019

    Great to have another catch Cheers, Peter
  8. The rule is that a model can be 25% built to participate in a GB, but it looks like you finished your Ju 87 in time But your Stuka needs now some company, so why not build another one in this GB - we certainly can use your name in the list By the way - all who suffer from undercarriage phobia and build only with gear up, here would be your chance to build something which can't be built with gear up Cheers, Peter

    Sharkmouth GB - 11 May to 1 September 2019

    Not at all Christer. Nice to see more interest in this GB. Done and welcome aboard Ale. The GB still has to be voted into next year's GB calendar - so don't forget to vote in November. Cheers, Peter
  10. Of course it is Greg, and having an A model in the mix is great. Now only two more names are needed on the list! If you never participated in a GB, give it a try Cheers, Peter
  11. I wasn't keen about the Wolfpack wing folds upgrade as I didn't like the idea of a solid resin wing which would be heavier than the kit wing. I actually have second thoughts using the Pavla wing folds as they are looking a bit too clunky and lack fines. I therefore decided to make my own scratch build wing folds. Unfortunately this will take some time as I have currently very little time to work on my models I started by adding a shim into the wing to increase the width of the wing. The main wings are too thin compared to the original. The vertical and horizontal stabilizers on the other hand are too thick! Not much which Trumpeter got right Also filled the miss aligned panel lines with a CA - talcum powder mix so that I can re-scribe them. As I said, not much progress this week. Cheers, Peter

    Messerschmitt Me-262 STGB Chat

    Some great builds happened here and Rich did another great job hosting this GB Just a shame that I failed again in finishing my model... I have to say that I was surprised to see only 18 builds from 16 Britmodellers. This STGB got 33 names (votes) on the list, so it looked like a well supported STGB. But only 6 of them actually started a build - In other words, only 6 of the 33 actually participated in the STGB which is a bit disappointing. On the other hand, 10 Britmodellers whose name wasn't on the list participated on the Me 262 STGB which is nearly twice as many of the participants from the list. Cheers, Peter
  13. Sorry to say, but I failed again in this GB But I did made some progress over the last two weeks. I riveted the engine pods and glued them to the wing. I attached them before gluing the wings together as it was easier this way to align them properly. Before fitting the upper wing parts, some gaps needed to be closed due to the slats modification. And here with the upper wings in place. Looks ok underneath, but the upper part needs some more work around the slats as the resin parts don't fit too well. And it didn't help that I managed to brake and loose one of the flat rails At least the fit of the engine pods looks good and doesn't need any filler at all. Even though not finished, I am at least a bit closer in finishing a Me 262 Cheers, Peter

    Its a Yellow Fokker ?

    Great choice and good to see a DR.1 in one of the many attractive colours which aren't red. Personally i find the red aircraft which Manfred von Richthofen flew not very exiting - but the man himself was a legend! Cheers, Peter
  15. Looks like a whole squadron will share your plane Nice progress with your build. Using black paint along the edges would give you more contrast and make sanding down easier. But it looks you mastered the process well with your method. Cheers, Peter
