  1. 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 an international rallying along with the decimated aliens in order to stand up against the vicious exterminators. The Olavis bring along a large part of their science & technology heritage such as Tritio X-14 heavy memory metal (from the very structure of the rescue vessel) – the electropulsive plasmatic prop-ramjet engine - the nucleonic fusion ion engine – the high energy positronic laser gun – the yellowish stealth coating etc. The humans manage to successfully implement the new technology to several of both existing and future war machine designs in order to rapidly build spacecrafts capable enough to intercept the invaders under the Global Federation Army high command, bearing the red/black triangle neutrality emblem. Hundreds of pocket-fighters are produced in the shortest amount of time and thrown into battle for destroying the Tulgar base on the dark side of the Moon before they manage to unleash their final attack. The battle for saving Parallel Earth has just begun and the unknown enemy foreshadows an uncertain (parallel?) future for mankind…
  2. Yes of course there are several photographs. You may have a look at one of them in my WIP thread :
  3. 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.
  4. Hi J-W, No, there is no photographic evidence that the spanish machines had their wing struts painted in anything else rather than RLM65.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Correct! I think this is the main reason why should modelling forums exist: to help (and inspire) each other.
  8. 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:
  9. 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). True Details provided the wheels (set No.48015) and Tally HO! the stencils (set No. S 48001). The markings come from Aeromaster: Allied P-40N's Pt.1 No.48-126C. I chose Sqdn. Ldr. John Waddy's mount, an 80th Sqdn P-40N-20 of RAAF based on Noemfoor island in Dutch New Guinea during September 1944. Keep modelling.
  10. ...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...
  11. Hi guys, This is an old build of mine, my 114th, finished in 2011 after almost 23 months. I have put it in a couple of forums but somehow I missed this one so I thought I should compensate by delivering a pic heavy topic with more than 70 slides. Bare with me & enjoy:
  12. Hi guys, this is my new build - my second Gaspatch Hs 123 in a row. First one can be found here: Warning: pic heavy topic, enjoy:
  13. No, it wasn't all gone - there is photographic evidence that show splinter camo well into the war, Yellow L being one such example.
  14. Finishing up the second build of my dual "affair" with Gaspatch Models' excellent Hs 123 A-1: Keep modelling
  15. I had a photo of my model specially "treated" by a professional graphic artist friend of mine and this is the result:
