  1. What is it, masochism, stupidity, senility?? After all of the complaining I did about the AMG Bf 109 A build of a few months ago one might think I would never touch another AMG 109 again. Well, the farther that model progressed the more I grew to like the kit. Sure, it had its fair share of fit problems and really, really stupid engineering, but the final product looked the part and it is by far the best Jumo powered 109 available. This time, I decided to go beyond "out of the box", but there actually isn't very much needed. The kit includes a Nice photo-etch fret with seat belts, landing
  2. Hello everyone, At the risk of being a bit OTT on the WIP threads (this will be my third ongoing thread, though the other two are approaching their end, so it's not too bad), I wanted to share with you my first ever (I think) Bf109 build. I might have built one as a kid, but if I did, it made no impact on me. I haven't built many WW2 German subjects since coming back to the hobby, but I have a few in the stash. Actually, there's only one aircraft in my cabinet that bears any Luftwaffe markings, and that's the most recent completion (an Eduard Bf110E). This kit has jumped the s
  3. Here is my recently completed AMG Bf 109 B. The complete build thread can be found here: After fighting the AMG Bf 109 A to a draw, I thought I wouldn't want to touch another one for quite some time. But the more I looked at the finished model the more I liked it. This time I didn't adhere to "out of the box" rules and added a few bits. However the AMG kit is so complete, not much was necessary. The cockpit only needed a little sprucing up with some stretched sprue, plastic card and some Eduard preprinted steel seat belts. I also added a Squadron Vac canopy, Barracud
  4. Another bulk post here. A few fairly quick builds while I mentally prep for the Zvezda PE-2 - the part count of which is making me a little anxious. Looks amazing though... Anyway - here are my 3 last builds. As always - brushes and rattle cans on these. All 1/48. Thanks for looking - all criticism and notes welcome! Bruce 1ST : was Airfix's new tool Hurricane. I wanted to try something a little less standard, and had some decals for this left over from... I think a Hase Hurricane kit. This kit really throws itself together. Real joy to build.
  5. Messerschmitt Bf 109 E-3, 6-123 of the 3.J/88 flown by Hans Schmoller-Haldy in Spain 1938. A wonderful kit, I decided to add it to a base and sourced a couple of figures from Hecker & Goros. I had a few problems with this one, all my own making the kit is superb. I tried to be clever on the bonnet and chose to only leave the front bit off which got me in a pickle and I forgot to add a couple of panels around the exhaust. I also had a bit of silvering which is creeping into my modelling all of a sudden! Oh and the aerial has pulled down a bit so I may re-do that at some point, r
  6. Hi Despite search the net I can seem to find any reference to Rall's aircraft when he was Gruppenkommandeur III./JG 52. fron the few b&W picts I think he was flying WNF which in theory (Can of WORMS) should mean that the G6 per factory would have still had a splintered sqaure shape on the right wing. Does anyone have any information or references Thanks
  7. This was finished a while ago, but I have only got round to photographing it this week; the WiP is here. The big change here is the Aires cockpit set, an amount of work but worth it. I am fairly happy with the finish but the decals proved to be not as opaque as I would like, so some colour demarcations do show through in places. If you think the pitot looks a bit odd, the real one has subsequently been found and substituted!
  8. 1/72 AZ 109's built out of box with a slight fattening of the nose and leading edge of wing. Still learning plenty through trial and error regarding clear coats and weathering (or lack of). Theses 2 builds were mostly complete about 9 months ago, but suffered a stall due to a loss of enthusiasm. They were finished very early this year, and I wanted to re-learn how to post pics for participation in the 109 group build. IAR Brasov assembled Bf 109Ga-2 "White A" was the personal mount of Capt Av Cantacuzino April-May 1944. Kit supplied decals, hair antennae
  9. Hi all Sirs, here my latest tiny beast. Absolute love for these new kits from Airfix. I still had no idea on how to proceed, this way I gave a (wrong) paintcoat to the interiors, and closed the fuselage. Then taking things a bit more calm, a bit of putty was thinned in water and spread in 1 to 3 coats into gaps, avoiding overdoing. This way only some cleaning of the excess with ethanol was enough for a neat surface on wing roots. The bomb support provided into the box,cut and resized, is welcome to build the "drop" for a camera equipped mac
  10. 1/72 Messerschmitt Bf 109 line as part of the Eduard 1/72 revolution Bf 109F-2/F-4/G-2/G-4 versions confirmed - in 3D construction source: http://ipmsnymburk.com/forum/viewtema.php?ID_tema=11559 post 26531) 26.06.2015-13:08 S.199 is confirmed as a future release for later time with the 1/72 MiG-21 line
  11. HI everybody; here's my latest off the bench, Academy's 1/48 Messerschmitt BF 109 G6, in the markings of Erich Hartmann's Yellow 1. The kit is actually an Academy re-boxing of the original Hobbycraft; not much trouble building it, but it's oversimplified in terms of details. The idea was to do a quick build and practice painting the German mottling camouflage ... but couldn't resist and I added some scratch built items. The WIP thread is here, if anyone's interested in. Scratch built items: - Pitot tube (using a prescription needle mounted on the kit plastic shaft) - Navigation lights -
  12. Since I finished my brace of Spitfires I thought I'd have a go at an idea I've had kicking around for a while, combining a rag wing Hurricane and a Messerschmit bf109 with an old stand I had lying around. This was supposed to be done a while back to clear out time for a Battle of Britain build but when do we ever stick to any schedule we plan? Both kits are the new tools from Airfix, the 109 is the starter kit edition. Both are good builds, very easy and go together quickly, though how the top and bottom of the wings on the Hurricane have wound up different sizes is beyond me. This was done a
  13. Having built a few of the (newish) 1/72 Airfix 109E-4/7 kits I wanted to do an E-1. Rather than try and find a E-1 kit, or use an E-3, I decided I would have a go at modifying an Airfix E-4. This required a change of canopy to the earlier style, and removal of the 20mm cannon, as the E-1 had 7.92mm MG 17's in the wings. I had in my stash a couple of E-1 style vac canopies to suit Heller, Matchbox and Airfix 109, but I believe that this must be for the older tool kit, as the vac canopy was a bit narrow. I have an Avis 109D kit in the stash and it has 2 canopies in it (not sure why). So I

  15. Hello I would appreciate Your opinions concerning this can of worms..... Based on my references,I am being offered between two different camo schemes for this 109G-14; first is 82/83/76 and the other 74/75/76. Now what would be most obvious choice,the 82/83 sounds suspicious,it is the option given by decal sheet. The new AZ Model G-14 1/72 scale has the normal three grey option. My only resources are two b/w pics where this 109 has taller (wooden) rudder but with shorter tailwheel and Erla canopy. This is either 4.JG 3 or 10.JG 3 plane and Werkenummer is 462919 and its number is white 7 an
  16. I recently posted my Spitfire Vb. Here Is the 109F. Some Unhappy with the canopy and I'm hoping to attempt a different approach with my next build. I'm still not happy with the finish. I think that none of the mistakes right at the end where I am perhaps into much of a rush to finish the model. On this bold tried some new techniques on the undersurface. Despite having looked at a number of photographs I turned down the exhaust staining and the overall weathering for this build. I found myself in Hobby Craft with the wife and spotted some place in the bridal section. This makes for super
  17. Ok folks, here we go...I haven't been around my modelling bench much lately for one reason or another, so I thought I'd mark my return with a traditional Deanflyer bit of silliness... I think we all know about Matchbox two colour kits, don't we? How the good people at Matchbox thought that having two different colours of plastic negated the need for painting? Well, I'm not really into 1/72 scale, so I thought it'd be interesting to build a larger and more up to date kit, but do it as Mr Matchbox intended. At Cosford, I secured a second hand Tamiya 1/48 109E and two appropriate
  18. Here is my latest completed model. Inspired by Deanflyer's impressive Tamiya/Matchbox Bf109, I blew off the dust from an old Hasegawa 109E box and got cracking. I'd always wanted to build this particular plane - I have the original boxing of this still in the stash, and I've wanted to build this for at least 15 years and never got to it. Carpe Weekium, and it is complete. The old Hasegawa decals were not only cream (as usual) but refused to stick or respond to MicroSet/Sol. So, I used a combination of Eduard stencils and national markings, and some markings from Sky decals. I kept this ver
