  1. Thanks Arnold for conducting our stgb . This has been the first gb I've managed to participate in for years where my posts haven't peeterd out halfway through my build. I look forward to catching up with you in another luftwaffe themed group build. Cheers Alistair
  2. This has been loads of fun to watch and the result is superb Cheers Alistair
  3. A big congratulations for a monster project that must have been a moster amount of work ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,YOU DID IT >>>>>>>>>>>>> Cheers Alistair
  4. Looking good Adrian. I hope the decals have survived the passage of time.
  5. Over the past few years I have built several dioramas of Luftwaffe aircraft that have been involved in forced landings .I have tried to recreate the scene from photos from the time. Up until now I have had a positive feeling knowing that none of the crew had been killed or seriously injured in the incident. I have just completed a depiction of the Airfix box art for their Heinkel he111 p being attacked by a Royal Navy Skua over the mountains of Norway, Now I know that in this action one of the crew was killed, I decided to dedicate my entry into the He 111 stgb to this c
  6. Greg ,you have raced ahead of me in your build . The time consuming part of the C/A construction is all the cleaning off . On many parts its difficult to see where the kit stops and the flash begines . After a coat of halfords grey primer the RLM has been aplied . P1030527 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr I have left out the resin parts to the bomb bay as they slightly spread the width of the fuselage . I can now do a decent dry fit of all major parts and see how the best fit can be achieved . P1030528 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr
  7. Less than 10 days left to get the gallery pumped up with some more completed builds . I see that many are very close to being completed .
  8. With one engine on fire and the other failing after an attack by royal Navy Skuas , pilot Feldwebel Richard Gumbrecht had no choise to force land somewhere among the snow coverd Norwegian mountains below . Airfix He 111 P-2 and Special Hobby Skua .

  10. Thanks Ozzy and everone else who has visited my build thred over the past few months . I am going to call this project completed . I am very pleased with how its come out ,though i would never have guessed how much cash iv thrown at ion things like the popblurs . resin pilots , brass tube ,dog toy and FAA paint . The price of the He 111 kit was almost insignificant . The dog toy was gutted for its stuffing . Work done included Bullet holes Modified injurd pilot featherd prop Scorched airframe . This was loads of fun and i would concider
  11. Very nice detail. I have just finished the sh 1/72 kit .This will be a cool kit with its extra detail .Will keep my eye on your build. Cheers Alistair
  12. Well on the way to completion now and at the point that its final display space will need to be found . I have this kit in the stash but no display space for anything approach Ing this size.
  13. Thanks Adrian . Onde apon a time i used to start a fire with an old tyre (This was the recomended way used by the national Trust when i worked for them ) thats very much the same as as oil fire . Thankd Stix . Its almost there ,only the tdidley bits and bobd to do now . I have had to re desighn the Airfix stand as with all the weight of the completed He 111 it would have collapsed . I have replaced the weak plastic stands with some brass tube and rod . Result is much stronger and also gave me the opertunity to put more realistic distance between the two aircraft .
  14. A great result there Greg . My Wife who was looking over my shoulder said its pleasing to the eye . Better nip down to B&Q and see if they do a He 111 wall paper range . Chers Alistair
