  1. Yes, as a matter of fact I have removed the slats but I have kept no photographic record of the procedure.
  2. Hi guys, As promised, these are the pics from the construction of this model of mine ( https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235057671-grumman-f-9f5-panther-monogram-148-walkaround/ )built some 15 years ago…:
  3. Thanks a lot guys! Stay tuned for the forthcoming Work In Progress post (...the build may be 15 years old but still some techniques remain unaltered).
  4. I think I used Gunze Sangyo's H55 Midnight Blue as the base colour but I have kept no such record and I am not really sure after 15 years... For the silver I think I used Alclad.
  5. Hi guys, The recent Grumman F-9F posts of Gary Brandley and “crobinsonh” reminded me of my own build some 15 years ago which has not been presented to this forum yet – unlike most of my other ones... So, here it is: It took me almost 21 months and It was extensively reworked adding a lot of scratch-built details. BLACK BOX No.48023 resin cockpit set was the only aftermarket product used apart from the decals which is a combination of EAGLE STRIKE’s No.48114 and SUPERSCALE’s No.48-778 sheets.
  6. Just shortly before the end of WW I, a large black hole approaches the Earth causing gravitational space-time distortion, strong enough to form a local parallel universe full of wormholes. One such gravitational field equation is used by the gigantic rescue vessel ISS Eternity from planet Mexi in order to reach the Earth. She carries 3.258 souls called Olavis, the last survivors of the Olavia tribe who desperately search for a safe refuge from their hunters, the Tulgars that follow closely just a few light years behind. The subsequent global unrest forces the immediate cease of hostilities and
  7. Yes of course there are several photographs. You may have a look at one of them in my WIP thread :
  8. Hi Piotr, What you wrote is correct. However, it refers to the period when the machines were flown by Spanish pilots. Before that, Henschels flown by German pilots did not have their wingtips painted white.
  9. Hi J-W, No, there is no photographic evidence that the spanish machines had their wing struts painted in anything else rather than RLM65.
  10. Hi guys, This is my 3rd Hs 123 in a row (and probably the last one...). It took me just 4 months, partly due to the experience I gained from the other two builds. The WIP is here : But you can also have a look at my first build here, that is more extensively presented : Enjoy.
  11. Fixing the top wing in position on this kit is as easy as it can be. As long as you setup the cabane struts to the correct position (which is also an easy task) you only have to glue the top wing on them firmly and wait until the bonding sets. Then you can squeeze the wing struts in without even using any sort of glue - that is what I have done on all my three Henschels.
  12. Correct! I think this is the main reason why should modelling forums exist: to help (and inspire) each other.
  13. Hi guys, Having been just released, the early type version of the excellent Gaspatch Hs 123 A-1 in Legion Condor colours proved too tempting to discourage me for building this kit for a 3rd time in a row! 1st and 2nd builds are here:
  14. Hi guys, Since my current build is taking me embarrassingly too long to finish I thought I would fill the gap with this (very) old model of mine. It is my 106th build, finished in June 2002, some 17 years ago. It took me 14 months to build but there are no WIP photos. Here is some WIP info instead: The Mauve kit has fine engraved panel lines which were enhanced by the addition of engraved rivets. The cockpit was improved by the use of Eduard's No.48135 photo etched set. There is a lot of scratch-building in the power-plant area around and behind CMK's Allison V-1710 (set No.4032
  15. ...and this is the next update, almost 1,5 years late...sorry for that but I could not help building 3 (!) Gaspatch Hs 123 models in the meantime - the pics and WIP of the 3rd yet to be published. Anyway I hope these slides are worth waiting (and of course there will be a lot more) : to be continued...
