  1. When not building airliners, I do build other subjects... Like this one. An overall nice kit and my first attempt to paint mottle using the airbrush.
  2. Hello, yesterday bought kit Messerschmitt Bf 109G-6, AZmodel 1/72. Its perfect!!!! I am going to build it. I will make the swiss plane. First shoots only about the box. I will sart building very soon
  3. Dear Britmodellers, Kagero Publishing is proud to announce five new titles. The following publications will be available after 16th September: UNITS 06 JG 26 Jagdgeschwader "Schlageter" Marek J. Murawski The sixth title in the series is devoted to the history of JG 26 "Schlageter". The 28 page book with English text contains a chronological overview of the unit’s activities, which is supplemented with 41 photos and colour profiles of 4 aircraft. The book also includes a decal sheet printed by Cartograf, which contains 1:72, 1:48 and 1:32 individual markings of the following planes: - Mes
  4. Hi all, with the new term fast approaching I was pleased to discover that when I popped into work today my Project Airfix order had arrived. I'm endeavouring to engage some of our more challenging students with a hobby. I'll be recording our students' progress on here, and as their confidence grows we may make a separate account for them to post their own work with. Hats off to Airfix for an affordable entry-level pack (£80 for 30 kits with paints, glues and brushes) which means that students from deprived backgrounds get a chance to try something new. I hope you'll all agree that this is a
  5. After making my first model in 15 years, I have caught the bug again! (see my related post for my first Spitfire build)... I always wanted to do an Me109, so I bought the new tool kit: I wanted to improve on my Spitfire, and try new tips from various model forums. This time, I brush-painted with Humbrol Enamel paint. I also used the new Humbrol Clear varnish, applied after painting to help with decals, which were also applied using Humbrol DecalFix. To finish off, I sprayed a light coat of Humbrol Acrylic Matt varnish from a spray-can, to take it back to a matt finish; I painted according
  6. We are now down to our last 3 Fine Molds Bf109's now. The UK importer is currently not importing Fine Molds, so these might well be the last ones we ever have in stock. We have a single Bf109G-4 and 2 Bf109G-4/R6's (Hartmann's markings) left in stock and we've reduced the prices from last year's down to roughly what they were in 2011. They're not cheap still but they are probably the best Bf109 kit currently available in 1/72 and are both well detailed and well engineered (and fit together properly!), so I would say, you really do get what you pay for with them! http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk/fi
  7. I've just loaded up a couple of special Airfix 1/72 Multi Kit deals on our Ebay Shop. This is an Ebay only promotion! First of all 3 of the New Tool Bf109E-4 kits http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200904387458&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT Second - a pair of the New Airfix Spitfire 22's http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380595015515&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT There's only one of each deal, so hurry if you want them! thanks Mike
  8. To give myself a break form all the filling and sanding that my Italeri Hurricane is going to need I thought I'd start on my Eduard BF109 1/4 scale cockpit panel. Its going to be built straight from the box using Vallego and Tamiya acrylic paints. I intend to build it in parallel with my Hurricane so it could take a long time. Anyway first off a shot of the box. So far all I've done is made a start on the Revi gunsight (Tamiya Flat Black) and spray the two panels Vallego Model Air schwartzgrau (RLM66). The paint is still wet in the shots hence the slighty mottled effect, in real life they
  9. This is an entry for the Bf109 STGB, which I finished on Christmas Eve. I wasn't sure if posting GB entries in the normal RFI forum was the done thing, but I see a number of other finished STGB entries have appeared here too in the last few weeks, so I thought I'd give the pics an airing here too. Apologies to those who have already seen this - it's deja vu all over again. It gives me something to do whilst waiting for the next Group Build... This is 99% OOB, the only addition is some PE seatbelts from Lion Roar. The kit fell together pretty well, the cowling was a bit fiddly but the rest
  10. Well, since my SAAB Safir never dries (see Swedish group build!) I'll quite likely bite off more than I can chew and try to participate in TWO group builds! I've already mentioned the kit in the GB chat, but here it is again: A Italeri Bf109 G-6 with some Eduard PE. Unsure about markings yet, but my guess is it will involve balkenkreuz and mottle... As you obviously saw right away, the kit is started - I cut out the wheel well shape from the bottom wings two months ago. I think I'm clear of the 25% rule! Sprues more in detail: Okay, next photo shoot I'll make an effort to remove the di
