  1. Absolutely stunning build, amazing paint job. I used to believe all F-16 look the same. I know better now ... compliments from Vienna Roman
  2. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my first contribution to the "Vehicles" gallery - my 1/72 ACE Models Austin HP8 Tourer. Bought this kit @ GoModelling show in Vienna last year. It's supposed to sit alongside a Spitfire on a vignette (one day). Added rear mirror (scrap photo etch from the spares box) & windshield wipers (from stretched sprue). The kit's convertible hood was too crude for my taste and was replaced by scratch-built item made from rubber gloves. Hope you like my tiny car! Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Close-ups in this scale are pretty unforgiving, but to show off my detail work, here's the windscreen wipers ... The rear mirror is a piece of scrap photo etch: And here it is in it's full size …. my smallest model to date! Thanks for your interest, best greetings from Vienna! Roman
  3. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my latest, another Erla Bf-109 G10 from AZ's new boxing. Photo etch from Brengun, pitot tube from Master, decals from Eagle Cals. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Thanks for your interest. Best greetings from Vienna.
  4. What a nice little diorama, I can see a lot of time & effort was invested! Water and bridge look very realistic, as well as the tank and figures, of course! One question - does that exhaust cover on the back of the vehicle resemble a wading device? The 72 scale Revell kit also includes this part, but most pictures of Cromwell's don't show it. Greetings from Vienna!
  5. Oh that's a nice modelling room, did you clean up before the pictures? Everything looks so tidy ... must be one of that German qualities! Extra likes for the Bf-109 poster. Cheers from VIE Roman
  6. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is my latest, the 1/72 Dragon Sherman Firefly Ic in markings of British Army, 2nd Armored Brigade, 2nd Armored Division, 1945. Photos: Wolfgang Rabel Best greetings from Vienna!
  7. Thank you for kind feedback Pedro. The colors on the topside are: Gunze H421 Brown Violet (RLM81) with a drop of Gunze H406 Chocolate Brown added; I personally find Gunze's interpretation of RLM81 a bit too pale and green-ish. Gunze H422 Light Green (RLM 82) Underside: Gunze H417 Light Blue (RLM76) Metal areas: Tamyia TS-17 Aluminum All colors have been applied over a pre-shaded surface; I add a drop of White (Gunze H11) to darker colors for scale effect and lighten up the center of the panels in a 'cloudy' application. Hope this info is useful, with best greetings from Vienna Roman
  8. Duncan, thanks for your feedback. You may consider scraping off the interior detail on the fuselage walls where the instrument panel is about to fit. This part is slightly oversized and may cause problems when closing the fuselage. To illustrate this issue, I took a snapshot of my work with the motor tool: Hope this info is useful! Best greetings, Roman
  9. Thanks Jerzy, I hope you still have display space for those upcoming projects! No reason to avoid this kit, yes it is short run, but fit is easy, no nasty surprises waiting. Be prepared to smooth out all the joints, that's all. Thanks Luis! The next Erla Bf-109 is already on the workbench and will represent an JG52 aircraft. Stay tuned!
  10. You really deserve a cerveza (or two!) for this exceptional work! Best greetings from Vienna (very hot as well…) Roman
  11. Here's my finished KP Ilyushin Il-2, if anyone wants to have a look:
  12. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's the new KP Ilyushin Il-2M, a re-box of the Smer kit with new parts added. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Hope you like my result, best greetings from Vienna! Roman
  13. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is my latest Bf-109, the Erla production G10, released by AZ Models in spring this year. This version has never been available as an injection-molded kit in 72 scale before. The main characteristics of the Erla-production 109s (compared to those built at WNF or Regensburg plant) consist of differently shaped gun throughs, a wider oil cooler, missing chin bulges and different rudder. I diverted from AZ's paint instructions by using RLM81/82 instead of 83/75. The fuselage number is provided in Green, while in my opinion, it should be Blue instead. I cut a mask using the decal sheet as a template and sprayed the Blue "2". Details were enhanced using Brengun photo etch, Master pitot tube, and Rob Taurus vacu. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Thanks for your interest, best greetings from Vienna!
  14. Absolutely right, thanks to Petr & Jan @ AZ/KP for providing us with this important aircraft! Hope to see more Soviet WW2 subjects in the future - Yak 9 series, for example?
  15. Ah, the wild wild East … One question remains, regarding part #63. I thought this was the holding mechanism for the defense gun? I slipped this part underneath the gunner's fairing with its end protruding slightly, so the UBT can be mounted. Now I see there's no mention of this part in the instructions … I might have done something wrong?
  16. Exactly what I did, it's not too difficult to scratch-build these missing parts. I was a little disappointed by their omission though - especially the rudder balance horn is a very characteristic feature of the Il-2. I made mine from a piece of stretched sprue, dipped in White glue.
  17. Alistair, I just completed my first KP Ilyushin Il-2M, and I do agree with you! Both boxings include the same (erroneous) instruction sheet that is meant for the early (Interim Station) variant. Apart from the faulty instructions, the part numbering on the sprues does not match the instruction sheet. With a little knowledge about the type, it's fairly easy to sort out the correct parts for the later version. Also missing from the box are: the pitot tube, rudder horn balance and the gunner's seat.
  18. I would appreciate the Mosquito wheels in 72scale! Any plans for release?
  19. Duncan, the fuselage of the G10 is identical to the G14AS. The only external difference is the larger wheel bumps on the G10 (the G14AS had the smaller wheels). Both variants feature the bigger supercharger intake and larger oil cooler, as well as a revised starboard nose panel.
  20. I LOVE themed displays. Even though Finish WW2 aircraft are not my interest at all, your collection is really inspiring. Such a nice variety of different types!
  21.
