  1. Now I know many of you may hate on myself closing everything up. However, I just love the clean lines of the Ta 152 and wanted a very streamlined look. The most I was going to leave open was the flaps and the cockpit. Hwoever, I did fully build the engine and paint it up and mount it inside, purely for my own enjoyment of Zoukei's incredible engineering. However, tolerances are VERY tight, with no room for mistakes. I do recommend the 1/48 Ta 152 by Zoukei Mura, now I will be scouting for a 1/32 Zm ta 152. However, I have heard that it can be even more overengineered. Modifications were limited to the pitot tube (albion alloys replacement), gun barrels (albion aloys again) and eduard seatbelts and an eduard decal and main instrument panel, as the ZM one wasn't very good. Weathering was mainly kept restrained as these aircraft were pretty new. Engagements were also doubtful for this particular aircraft, so I held off doing extensive cordite staining of the guns. Cheers, John
  2. Brilliant job mate, but this bird definitely does not get top marks for good looks- the stuka looked bad already, but the A variant just made it look plain ugly!
  3. I am hoping they will do that- I hate chopping up my Tamiya and hobbyboss kits for dropped slats and flaps etc.... really annoying. Hopefully eduard will get it right and not go crazy on the rivets, as they do extensive rivetting, as the Me 262 never had lots of exposed rivets
  4. I can confirm the ME 262, I have contacted eduard recently, and they notified me that they will be designing the Me 262 sometime next year. A new Fw 190D and A series will also be released, they also told me that
  5. thanks mates, it's been my first eduard Fw 190 build, and turned out to be harder than I thought, but the results are pretty nice Cheers, John
  6. I have just finished the Eduard 1/48 Focke Wulf Fw 190D-9 Profipack. THE AERIAL WIRE WILL GO ON NEXT YEAR TO COMPETE AT THE AUSTRALIAN MODEL EXPO. A finicky kit, but the finished result is superb and very much worth it. The spiral spinner decal was a bit of a mess to put on, but in the end it bedded down well with some micro sol and set. Underwing staining was done with Mig's Panel washes and provided a realistic effect. (I don't know why some of the decals look as if they have silvered- they haven't, as it must be the light. I have checked it, and they are void of silvering...) I would like to dedicate this build to all of the JG 301 Wilde Sau pilots of WW2. Thanks, John
  7. Just put together the pit and the engine plug
  8. Just started a Hobbyboss kit-the 1/48 Ta 152C-1. This is the original picture of the original aircraft. I will be using an eduard detail set. Cheers, John
  9. The rafale looks great with just the right colour tone. Good job mate
  10. Nice Job mate. Until the eduard Spitfire comes out in 1/72 and in this mark, I think this kit is the best so far....
  11. The ladder is a very nice addition. Great build
  12. This looks really exciting. I always like 1/24 aircraft, although I have not built one. The closest I went was Dragon's 1/32 Bf 110 John
  13. The last 4 engined bomber I did was a lanc. Put me off forever on 1/72 "heavy bombers" the glass glazing took ages and was a real pain
  14. The revell 1/32 kits are great value. I picked up the new bf 109G-6 for a mere $55 at my local hobby shop, which is normally $20 excessive. THe hunter is a classic, and you are doing a great job of it. John
