    Airfix Bf-109E 1/72 scale

    ....you did very well with that 'canopy', a seamless fit although the kit part as supplied doesn't fit at all well does it? nice job!
  3. a google search for 'falkeeins necesany KG 40' will bring up a nice selection of images of these machines - most of which have yet to be published (they are due to be ..)
  4. Hi Patrice, that is looking really smart, what decal sheet is that please?

    Three French WW2 Fighters .

    neat paintwork too - you don't mention the paints - the 'chocolate brown' looks spot on - enamels ?

    What are you reading?

    Nicholl's book - despite the social media hype - is NOT a book about the Spitfire. Its a mashed-up compilation of war-time 'experiences' some of which involve the Spitfire directly, others of which, quite simply, don't. One of the longest personal accounts in the opening half of the book at nearly two pages is from a Hurricane pilot ..
  8. ..have a look at https://wartimepress.com/ All sorts of German publications available to download (for a small fee) in pdf format - 'Luftflotte West', 'Pauke-Pauke' 'Der Seeflieger'

    I met the author a few years ago at the 'launch' of this title (at the Hawkinge Battle of Britain museum). A very genial and engaging character who speaks very good English. Although you're right. At one moment a German bales out and 'loses his conscience' (rather than loses consciousness!)
  10. Indeed. Check out 'Scale Aircraft Modelling' 'Aircraft in Detail' features devoted to the A-series fighter variants (Vol 24 no. 9 November 2002), the Sturmgruppen bomber destroyers (Vol 23 no. 1 March 2001) and the Dora-9/Ta 152 series (Vol 27 No 12 February 2006).

    Sea Fury (yes another one!)

    Yes, we do. Cowl shimmed as well. Stalled at the painting stage since I too want to do a striped one.. Surprised Airfix didn’t give us the choice from the box. Yours looks lovely, super work, hope mine turns out as nice.

    Ju-52 Crash in Switzerland

    sad, sad news.. a recent view of HB-HOT (with Jan Forsgren who recently published a Ju 52 history for Fonthill). Note the 'original' BMW engines with twin-bladed props (unlike the well-known Lufthansa D-AQUI which has P&W engines with three-bladed props). This is (was) the 'Where Eagles Dare' machine
  13. very nice indeed! ..and thanks for the link. I haven't found half of those images on the actual IWM photo archive site
