  1. I have built the Italeri kit twice and remember some fit issues, especially around the engine nacelles. None of that can be seen on your model! The metal gun barrel is a great enhancement (the original plastic part is rather poor). Also, I admire your brush painting skills. Superb rendition! Good work.
  2. I agree with you Giampiero - I must have overlooked this detail on the finish run!
  3. I am impressed by what you can "print out" these days ... The figures are very good, what scale is this?
  4. A rather unusual scheme, indeed! May I point out that most Bf-109K's in frontline service had the outer geardoors removed.
  5. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Hasegawa Ju-88 G-1, built from the box, with Schatton metal antennas added. The model was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, weathered with artist oils. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. This is the latest version of Hasegawa's Ju-88 series, released earlier this year. According to my research, 4R+AK from 2/NJG2, flown by Johannes Strassner, was the only Ju-88 G-1 fitted with the experimental obliquely mounted MG151. The gun barrel comes as a metal part. The prominent exhaust stains, commonly found on G-1 aircraft, was sprayed with Gunze H95 Smoke Grey in several thin layers. Towards the end I added a drop of Black for tonal variation. The squiggle pattern on the upper surfaces were painted freehand. Brake lines are from stretched sprue. Thank your for your interest. Best greetings from Vienna!
  6. That's a very nice representation of the famous Nebelwerfer. Great paint job! 3D printing from internet plans is still new to me, could you please explain, from how many parts this model was assembled?
  7. Neat little model, and very interesting conversion from the Heller kit (which I find almost equal to the Dragon offerings). Dan Taylor Modelworks is a great source of inspiration!
  8. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's the new 1/72 Special Hobby SdKfz 250/1, built from the box. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, weatherd with artist oils, pastel chalks and graphite pencil. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. The Special Hobby kit is a re-issue of the MK moulds (https://www.scalemates.com/de/kits/mk-72-07204-sdkfz250-1-ausfa--234263), originally released in 2013. Details are plentiful, and the general fit of parts is excellent. However, I noticed that on one sprue, a few small parts had been incompletely moulded. I assume the kit I got may have been a test-shot, and the errors will not be present on all kits. I re-worked and re-placed the pieces in question. The tracks come as a one-piece assembly and can easily be wrapped around the driving wheels without breaking. I much prefer this option over the link-and-length tracks which can be painful to assemble in small scale. The side markers are provided both in plastic and photo-etch (I chose the latter). Thank you for your interest, best greetings from Vienna! Roman
  9. This one turned out really nice, Gary. Good work on the exhaust stains, you made them look realistic. And your clear parts are shiny, too!
  10. Not a new kit, actually. AZ Model's Bf-109K has already been released in 2018: https://www.scalemates.com/de/kits/az-model-az7595-messerschmitt-bf-109k-4-kurfuerst--1147149 It's a new decal variant based on these spures. And a very welcome one, as it includes very attractive Italian markings as well!
  11. Very attractive model and great background story. Thank you for showing!!!!
  12. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Dragon Willys Jeep with Armored Cab. Built from the box, with the addition of Black Dog stowage items. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, pictures by Wolfgang Rabel. The Dragon kit contains two complete models with various optional weapons. The armor shield and radiator protection are photo-etch parts. I added ammo boxes and stowage from Black Dog. Greetings from Vienna! Roman
  13. I guess I was mislead by my "source" ... I will keep your advice in mind for future builds!
  14. Thank you for feedback Andrew. The antennas are steel wire and unpainted (according to photographs of the real vehicle) - should they have another color?
  15. Great choice of markings - the sharkmouths & the blue bits really add a dash of color! Was this a Pacific Theater aircraft?
