  1. Arsenal VG.33! Talking about just too late; deliveries had started when France capitulated. It would probably have been a formidable adversary for the 109's. At least if we have to believe its performance in War Thunder. But I digress. I have the Pegasus kit which looks nice, albeit a bit basic. I can't judge from online pics if the Azur kit is any better, although it does have some PE parts. The Kora kit is a CW-22 trainer and only looks superficially similar to the CW-21. My initial plan was to reverse-engineer one, but that seemed like a lot of tricky and costly work. Luckily I then found the MPM kit online (not on evilBay though).
  2. Great surface finish, fabric looks like fabric, wood looks like wood.. Museum grade stuff
  3. Thanks, looking forward to seeing your 109's here! Thanks! And yeah, I'm still struggling with my light and camera setup. I suppose I could maybe have made them lighter with Gimp for the time being, but I also need to work on my photography.
  4. That's a very colourful (heh) selection of models there! One thing; what's the story with the mirrored swastika on the me 163?
  5. Looking good! Also very impressive production for a year; I can't even reach that in 1/72. Then again, I wouldn't be able to move around in the house filled with huge models!
  6. That's a really impressive model! And the seperate Ohka also looks very stunning on itself.
  7. That is one very smooth finish. Hard to believe it's a 1/72!
  8. With never ending discussions on the best 109's available, what becomes of the old ones in the stash that don't quite make the cut anymore with today's requirements? Simply a bit of fun and, well, maybe just a little bit of upgrading.. So, I wanted to see what I could make from Academy's 109G. Fin and rudder came as spares from an AZ Models kit, and the spinner came from the ancient Airfix plane, as did the yellow 4. Luckily, yellowing wasn't an issue here. The full build report can be viewed here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOazMtaOmWw Cheers, Luka
  9. Wow, even the details have extra details. Looking good!
  10. The 1/72 Kovozavody Avia S-199 fuselage looks as if it has been corrected around the front wing/fuselage compared to the old AZ 109G kits, which had the awkward nose due to this.
  11. Ooh, we're getting spoiled lately with loads of pretty Dutch planes. Looking good!
  12. Absolutely breathtaking build of a beautiful plane. And Dutch triangles to boot! Great job correcting them.
  13. You really did this beautiful bird great justice. Thanks for sharing.
  14. Looking good! I have a 1/72 MB.151 in the stash so I bookmarked this for inspiration.

    P-40 radio wires

    Right, it seems like all those profiles based on that pic were assuming it was 29-29. Cr*p, I had mine almost finished save for the wires. The easiest way to fix it would be to find new serials. I found another list of his planes and associated kill claims. But apparently some 'probables' were also included. 1 42.03.24 75 P-40 Zero Pt.Moresby 1.5 2D 42.03/04 75 P-40 Bomber Unknown 1 42.04.05 75 P-40 Zero Pt.Moresby A29-9 N 2D 42.04.06 75 P-40 Zero Pt.Moresby A29-9 N 1 42.04.17 75 P-40 Zero Pt.Moresby A29-29 I 1 42.04.18 75 P-40 Zero Pt.Moresby A29-30 W 1 42.08.27 75 P-40 Zero Milne Bay A29-71 1 42.04.24 75 P-40 Fighter Pt.Moresby A29-41 M
