  1. Peter, Yes, I made a tool myself. Take a piece of aluminum tube ( 0.014) , in it, you place thin copper wires and secure them with some AC glue . First time use it on a piece of sandpaper to get a smooth tip and your tool is ready for use Regards JohnHaa
  2. Maybe this topic is of some use ? With kind regards JohnHaa
  3. Graham, thanks for your comments I'm not an expert with the Bf-109 but this is, what I found in my book. As far as I understand it, the -H-1 was based on the early Bf-109G-5 with the pressurized cockpit. The bulges of later model -G-5 were the fairings of the MG- breeches, so I don't think they had a connection with the type of engine. The -H-1 had a DB 605A with GM-1 power boosting. The airframe of the Me-206 V6 was used for the construction of the Bf-109H V55. This type was developed much later then the -H-1. By chance I was digging i
  4. Very nice model ! I like the way you kept the weathering to a minium. Afterall it was a prototype and was very clean. B.t.w. I did one years ago in scratch and in 1/48 from an old Air Enthusiat article. Cheerts JohnHaa
  5. Well I looked up some more information from the book I mentioned. There were several H-1's delivered to an experimental service evaluation unit based at Guyancourt, near Paris. It flew general satisfactory, it reached a service ceiling of 47,500ft (14.480 m). But as often the case with long span wings, it experienced some wingflutter in diving speeds above 455 m.p.h. ( 732 km/h). After some further testing it was decided to stop production in favour of the Focke- Wulf Ta-152H. JohnHaa
  6. Dear Members, Here I like to present one of my German highflyers. I build this model years ago. When Otaki brought out this model I bought several, planning to convert them in several different versions. I made the wing extensions with thick plastic sheet, removed all the bulges of the G-series, added a 4 blade prop and made new , larger span elevators, with two struts. Finally I replaced the coolers to the new innerwings. As reference I used a three-view drawing from the book : Messerschmitt Bf-109 “The Augsburg Eagle “ by Willliam Green.
  7. Chris, My compliments with this difficult conversion of this less known Douglas. I like the idea; for using a DC-3 as starting point. A lot of work but you did a fine job. Thumbs up ! Greetings, JohnHaa
  8. Dear members, Thank you for your kind comments ! Cheers, JohnHaa
  9. Dear members, Thanks for the kind replies ! If you are interested in my latest build, have a look at this Wip: http://www.aviationofjapan.com/2020/03/ki-74-patsy-in-148-by-john-haas-part.html Regards, JohnHaa
  10. Dear modellers, When Roy vd M presented his topid of his excellent Yokusuka “Ginga ” I remembered another Japanese aircraft with beautiful lines, my opinion of course...:-) So after some searching in my photo collection, I dug up this picturen. Long time ago I build this model, as one of my first two engined planes in scratch. This model is made out of solid wood, besides the tail feathers, which are made of thick plastic sheet, the same for the props and undercarriage and some smalles parts. The cockpit canopy is a home made vacuform.
  11. Roy, Beautiful Frances, well worth the work you put in. I wish there was a 1/48 model, èlas, I'm afright I have to scratch one. But I still figuring how to make that glass nose.... Thanks for sharing your build Cheers, JohnHaa
  12. Very nice result ! Indeed applying lozenge is always difficult. But in spite of all the problems, it looks fine. Those german two- seaters will always be a struggle , I know...... Thanks for showing ! Cheers JohnHaa
  13. Dear modellers, Thank you very much for your nice comments ! I'm glad that I posted my model on this forum and give many people much pleasure enjoying the pictures. I think it is very important, just in these difficult times, to keep an eye open for the nicer things in live. With kind greetings JohnHaa
  14. Thanks for the compliments ! For Matti, Yes it's a pity, I did not took photographs then, but when you are interested, have a look at the site of a fellow modeller: http://www.hollandaircraft.nl/ He build the BAT F.K. 26 in 1/72 and very well too ! Cheers, JohnHaa
  15. British with some dutch flavor. Dear Modellers, The BAT F.K.26 was a British single-engined four-passenger biplane transport aircraft produced by the British Aerial Transport Company Limited of London at the end of World War I. As The First War drew to a close the aircraft designer Frederick Koolhoven designed a civil four- passenger wooden and fabric civil transport, the F.K.26. The four passengers had an enclosed cabin and the pilot sat above and behind the cabin in an open cockpit. The prototype (Registered K-102) first flew in April 1
