  3. Super work there Dennis. You have put me to shame this year. Nick
  4. Thank you Mike, to be honest the base is really easy to build. It just mdf covered with grass mat with dyed coffee stures cut to size for the boards. Nick
  5. Thank you Joachim, i'm toying with the idea of adding a ground power unit and a work platform made using barrels and planks of wood. Nick
  6. Thank you Adam, yip. We may get one someday. Nick
  7. Thank you Toryu. the mottle is airbrushed using a Badger 200 sg with a fine tip fitted. Nick
  8. I have used 10 thou plastic card for the leading edge slat suports The gun packs have been added also The entry step will be made from strips of plastic card. The blind landing aproch airel will be replaced with copper wire. This will finish this build as the radio airel will be made from streached sprue and fitted after its on its base. Thank you for looking. Nick
  9. This is my build of mengs me 410 b2/u2/r2. In the markings of 3U+CK of 2./zg 26. While based at Konigsberg-Neumark in the summer of 1944 The following aftermarket items were used Aires. - resin cockpit. Vector. - corrected oilcoolers. The following Quickboost. - ju 88 c/g 151 20mm gun barrels (under fuselarge gun pack). Ju 88 mg 151 20 mm gunbarrels (internal gun pack). Me 410 spinners & propellers. The following lead wire. 2mm,. 4mm,. 6mm. (engine & cockpit details & brake lines). Streached sprue was used for the radio aireal Extracolor enamels were used for the following rlm colours. - 02, 66, 74, 75, 76, Humbrol were used for the rest. A Badger 200 g was used with a fine tip. For the weathering the following was used. - Mrp. - exhaust soot Pastels Ak. - aircraft engine effects I enjoyed this build but! (I did a wip of this build) and would build another I had a couple of issues 1.the lower port wing joint needed filled with a plastic shim 2. The biggest issues were with the canopie. If you fit the nose glazing to the fuselarge the main canopie is too wide for the fuselarge. So I fitted the main conopie to the fuselarge so it fitted. Then used plastic card to pack out the nose glazing to fit the wider fuselarge. Also the conopie is on the thick side so I also had an issue fitting it round the rear aiming controls This is the detail I added to the gun/bomb bay(which is mostly hidden by the gun pack) Thank you for looking, comments and feed back is welcomed. Nick
  10. Hi all this up date starts with a back track... I assumed the radiator flaps were the same as the bf 109. I was wrong. When I tried to fit them thay wouldn't fit extended. So after some more research. I found a few videos of the flaps beening deployed then retracted from the rear. In the videos the inner side of the flaps are connected to the end of the main flap. Ahhh. So I cut the part from the radiator sides and used 10 " plastic card to make them and fitted them to the flaps After these were fitted to the flaps and spayed. The flaps were taped retracted to the wing, then the exhaust stains were sprayed on using mrp smoke. The flaps were then glued to the wings in the deployed possision. The radiator flaps have had a shampher added so thay can be dropped to match the main flaps. I have replaced the trim Activision rods with copper wire ready for touching up. The rear mg 151 have been fitted to the fusalarge slightly depressed to match the controls Also I have started to weather the airframe using ak's aircraft engine set. Using 10/0 & 5/0 brushs Thank you for looking. Comments and feed back is welcomed. Nick
  11. Thanks antb. I think the rlm 75 after the varnish coat has gone too dark tho. But it's getting there.
  12. Yip, I took me awhile to decide which version to build myself.
  13. Thanks Greg, spirals are easier to do now you can get tape that's designed to curve. Nick
  14. Hi all here is the latest update, the undercarriage has been finished. I used 0.3 mm lead wire for the brake lines. The wire was painted rlm 02 and the flexable hoses painted humbrol 67 Also the gun barrels have been added to the external gun pack. The propellers have been fitted to the spinners. I have feathered one og the props The wheels have been been finished by dry brushing and stapling hunbrol 29 over the tread The undercarriage has been fitted. Props and flaps have been placed in place Thank for looking comments and feed back are welcomed. Nick
