  1. and here comes the 2nd half picture, just cockpit started
  2. Here is a late Bf 109 from the licensed production by IAR. 15 Ga-4 and 60 Ga-6 were built between 1944-1947. Main factory IAR Brasov was more or less bombed out in april-may 1944 and the production continued in an IAR work shop in Caransebes. The kit is the old Hasegawa and with RB Production decals and the typical IAR bulges for the MG131. Easy camoflage, almost everything is dipped in AMT-7 This is one of two 109s from Regimentul 180 in Rosjori that defected to Yugoslavia 1952. Flight leader Captain Gh. Gheorghiu in 363 and his wingman Lt. Bores Constantin in no 319 Sources: Post war 109 in Romania 319 with a collapsed landing gear
  3. Cramped.. oh yeah. Look in the 3rd post here at worldwar2.ro forum
  4. Cockpit done, my plan was a dual build with a Hasegawa so it's just half a picture here.
  5. A few days after the royal coup 23.Aug 1944 when Romania switched side, a plan was made how to arrange transport for the 1200 POW's still in Romania A Bf 109 G-6 (or G-14) W.Nr: 166 133 from Grupul 9 was repainted with a big US flag on the fuselage and pre-war wing markings. The radio compartment was emptied to make room for a passenger In 27.Aug 1944 piloted by Constantin "Bâzu" Cantacuzino and with the former POW Lt. Col. James A Gunn III in the radio compartment they made a 2 hour flight to Foggia Air base in Italy The kit is the Academy G-14 with a replacement Intech old tail rudder and decals from PropagTeam
  6. I think (=not 100% sure) that all yugoslav 2-seaters were built post war. Some were later sold to Bulgaria Designation UMe 109 and the second canopy was a Erla canopy instead of the G-12 wide one. An UMe 109 looks like the one in this PDF, bottom page https://wingsofserbia.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/Messerschmitt-Bf-109-The-Yugoslav-Story-Volume-II-Sample-Pages.pdf Also Kora has a conversion set https://www.modelimex.com/172-bf-109-g-12-convset-yugoslavian-service-kora-c7266 My best source is Falcon's Messerschmitt Bf 109 Hangar but I didn't find any good photos of any yugoslav 2-seaters. BTW, the Intech mould is a copy of the Hasegawa and everything should fit. Check the width of the fuselage before you glue it together. Use the Hasegawa tail fin as a reference. I've got the Intech G-12, still fairly good, your Hobbycraft I guess is the same. I know the latest Mistercraft has very worn moulds and are soft and grainy
  7. Look for Condor, ICM pre- 2005 mould. or MAC Distribution. I've got the MAC Distribution 2001 release, not too bad and it has fine recessed panel lines and no grainy plastic
  8. I think you've got the same problem that I have. 68 kits from 23 different manufacturers, new kits to old relics, don't forget all aftermarket decal sheets that you never gonna use but still bought.
  9. Nice one Pat. And you can always kitbash it with 2x Intech/Mistercraft G-12 fuselages, then you'll get a 4-seater instead 😉 Retrowings has released a newer AZ Models-based kit but I'm not satisfied with the solution there with only 2 landing gears and one radiator to each engine. Well, the Amodel is a bit "flashy" and a tip, at least with the normal F and G is to start sanding the underwing to half the thickness in advance with 3 days to go...
  10. Ciao Tony! Vorrei essere numero quindici btw, I'm much better at the distinct dialect they speak in Südtirol 😉
  11. I think you're after this site http://www.airfixcollectorsclub.co.uk/index.asp?page=Kit Catalogues and Leaflets But with prices like 3/6d and 11/6d I'm totally lost . It's like paying with stones, seashells in my metric brain 😉 btw, my guess it's a Stirling bomber at the end🤔
  12. I would go for L40/52 Hellgrau , lighter than RLM63 Of all different shades of RLM02 and RLM63 that I have, Xtracolor X221 RLM63 is the one closest to L40/52 Also check Luftwaffe SiG
  13. Please , count me in. I remember buying a 6 planes Flying circus collection I guess in '82-83. I've also got another Nieuport 17 marked Japan so it must be one of the older moulds from the 70's ESCI collection. The F-100 has minor differencies to the Italeri and you can still get the WC52, Harriers and Starfighters today from Italeri. The ESCI F-4 has recessed panel lines, the Italeri raised Odd sticker on the F-104C, "Inneholder danske dekaler". Well the danish didn't have the C version... and the decals were long gone when i got the kit. by Sau, auf Flickr ESCI/ERTL collection Minor changes on the A-4 and A-7 to the Italeri, but you can still get the EF-111 today. The F-16's and F-14 have recessed panel lines, Italeri raised. There also is an korean copy released by Academy of the Spad XIII with minor differencies (like a prop rotating in the wrong direction) by Sau, auf Flickr Italaerei, Revell/Italaerei, Supermodel and a AMT re-pop of the ESCI F-16C Block 25/30 (as a Block 40) by Sau, auf Flickr
  14. Hi Wez It must be the first Heller Bobkit Peugeot 205 Turbo 16. Année création 1986 as they say in the foreign language. Maybe a bit late but I think the decals are from Tour the Corse '84
  15. Oh yes, but I hade some busy weeks before holiday and saved the pictures for later. A bit of fighting to straighten up one of the wings by Jan H, auf Flickr Down to the spray booth with the rest of the Frog family and I can tease you with a kit that doesn't have a build thread yet. by Jan H, auf Flickr Aircraft grey-green and I hope I didn't miss any spots that show up later by Jan H, auf Flickr I usually try to glue the seams exactly to prevent any edges but this one slipped a bit when it lay to dry over the night so a bit of puttying and sanding required. And of course, those gigantic skis are really cool and almost a must when you build a finnish plane. by Jan H, auf Flickr
