  1. I have a faint memory of adding an (improvised) oil filter to the engine. (Wonder if this was really with the Hasegawa 328 or if they supplied one and my memory is playing tricks on me).
  2. Olivier, with the world in turmoil (Middle East, Far East, and in the East), it feels so comforting to have this one constant in life! Yet as always: GUT WRENCHING. It looked "pretty good" if not even "excepatble for a quick out of the box build". I wonder about the width of the slits in the screw heads. Maybe it is possible to make "screws" out of a piece of "silver" wire of the proper diameter. Round off the "head", cut/saw a slit and leave the rest cylindircal.
  3. I did not intend to try to tell anybody that the wreck in question might be a Ju 187 or 287, I was trying to question the quality of the list or the sanity of the person(s) making the list. Ju 187? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Junkers_Ju_187 Ju 287? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Junkers_Ju_287 How damaged can an airplane wreck be, so that you "know" it is a Ju 187 or 287 but don't know which one of the two? Just a lot of burnt aluminunm and a manufactures plate telling "Junkers Werke Dessau Typ Ju x87 Werknummer xyzxyzxy"? (xyz = illegible)
  4. Umwege erhöhen die Ortskenntnis. Roughly translated: "The unintended scenic route lets you know the area better." (Who knew about the 6 rather different Hs 130 before? And who knew that one of them ended at Brandis?) A "positive identification" of a 410 would include round tailplane edges (or a really good explanation) (to me) or a legible Werknummer or Stammkennzeichen, for a "rather likely identification" and for saying "it is not the Hs 130" everything is OK.
  5. In some way "a 410 with untusual squared off edges" looks more fitting than "a 130A" (check fuselage below tailplane). On the other hand white 05 got dragged around a bit from here https://robdebie.home.xs4all.nl/me163/wh05-26.htm to https://robdebie.home.xs4all.nl/me163/wh05-22.htm https://robdebie.home.xs4all.nl/me163/wh05-23.htm and who knows how the Brandis 130 really looked like? (it looks different than the 410-wreck-with squared-off-tailplane in question) one 130: the next one http://www.airwar.ru/enc/spyww2/hs130a.html and even better plus http://www.luftarchiv.de/index.htm?/flugzeuge/henschel/hs130.htm my search for another 410 with squared off edges is still without any positive result. I didn't even find a Dienstvorschrift or Baubeschreibung stating the round edges should come off like a lizard's tail ... but I'm open to be convinced and look at pictures and talk about everything in a normal voice. Yes, the 130 does (all do) look different from the wreck shown in the first place, so I do not believe it is a 130. Still I'm puzzled. Regarding the quality of the list (one or two 130 at Brandis, the one "burned out", compare that claim to the remains in the background of white 05) we may just take a look at the first type listet (Ju 187 / 287 ???) and do a google search for images of Ju 187 and 287.
  6. I've heard people say it is an antenna (for the transmitter part) for the FuG 16 zy. The FuG 16 zy provided "regular" speaking (send) and listening (receive, the long wire antenna) function, plus direction finding via the ring antenna plus it would transmit a siginal to a ground station allowong the ground station to measure the distance of the fighter so the fighter can be guided towards other aircraft. More than you ever dared to ask about the FuG 16 zy (around 5:40 the explanation for the different antennae - or should I say "antennas"?): Do invest 15 minutes of your life to watch and listen! and found here http://www.noding.com/la8ak/29b.htm
  7. I'm not trying to argue, I'm just thrown off the 410-track by the squared off edge of the tailplane. When doing a google search for HS 130A images it appears all six Hs 130 looked different from each other and had different engines and propellers but none really fits the wreak in question. If that https://robdebie.home.xs4all.nl/me163/wh05-23.htm is "the Brandis Hs 130A" (what else could it be?) I'll just get used to squared off Me 410 tailplanes.
  8. Maybe the Hs 130A could be worth a second thought or at least a glimpse.
  9. (took me a moment to get the PE thing) Try it anyway, it might look good.
  10. I'd go with this pattern/demarcation line (who am I to question the RAF museum?): https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/dd/Bf_109_G-2_trop_RAF_Museum_London.jpg
  11. * sigh * "You're welcome" or "de nada" or "da nicht für" or (pardon my French) "de rien!"
  12. Olivier? Is that really you (and are you OK?) or did somebody gain control over your account here?
  13. Tan or black interior? (just slap some good old (30 years+) Humbrol #19 enamel on the outside and forget about any primer) Fun fact: The electrical switch for the adjustment of the rear view mirrors is very familiar to BMW e30 series drivers.
  14. I'm not too much of a ‘What if”-fan but this lovely one just makes me smile!
