  1. Introducing my build of Franz Von Werra's Bf109E, courtesy of the Airfix kit - that's been seen before. Parts, some pre-painted. The starter version of this kit cost me £5.50 at The Works in 2013, then swapped kits with Hepster - I received this one. This being the only decal option, I've got and watched the DVD of his story. And I found the book by Kendall Burt and James Leasor - whilst at school. Oh where is that copy now? Franz Von Werra was a colourful character - as described in Valkyrie's thread. Prone to exageration? - th
  2. Good evening guys, I hope everyone is well! I decided to share the photos of the build I finished today, which as the title suggests is Tamiya's Bf-109 E-4/7 Tropical, 8 / JG 27 in 1/48th scale. I attempted to do a work in progress section for this build, however forgot to upload the photos until I had just finished painting the model and so it was a bit of a short lived work in progress with only one update before completion. However as mentioned in the work in progress update, I chose to build this after watching a youtuber by the name of Keeto who was using fillable acryl
  3. Last week I picked up half a dozen recent Aero Journals, partly to re-oil my rusty aeronautical French. (Much easier than reading Le Figaro or Les Recherches etc.) One has a Chris Goss article about the introduction of the fighter-bomber during the Battle of Britain. Good stuff, lovely photos, and some grand profiles. But I have a query. They are all in the greys. I would expected that at least the early ones, converted from E-1s and E-4s, to be in the earlier 71/02/65 scheme. To my knowledge the grey scheme was standardised by early 1941, and there were trials of (possibly different)
  4. Dear All, My next project will be a BoB Bf/Me 109E but need some help please. I have the Tamiya E3 and the ICM E3 as well but not sure which would be the better and if either can also represent the E1 or E4 version? In this scale the difference between an E3 and E4 would presumably be almost 'invisible' so it should come down to identifying a specific subject from research and applying the relevant decals? As for the E1 my basic understanding is that this variant was armed with wing machine guns so lacking the under wing cannon bulges but could also have had
  5. Another straight OOB build for "production" - as per my earlier Spit for presents , fleabay etc. I'm curious what will fetch more a Spit or a 109E? Thats the trader in me I suppose but I wonder if patriotic zeal will win out? Oh and yes the props all spin now... WIP here Thanks for tuning in Anil EDIT: Updated images, processed with the right settings
  6. Just about managed to get this one finished and photographed before 2018 is done. The scheme is taken from the Xtradecal BoB decal sheet and represents "Black 8" flown by Ofw Bernhard Lempskemper. The airfix kit went together very well along with some Eduard etch for the cockpit, wheel wells and air intakes. I tried to replace the slightly sorry looking moulded guns on top of the nose by scratch building some out of thin stainless tube - not sure there's much improvement though in the end... The aerial wire is from stretched sprue with little coiled bits of wire to add interest. I airbrushed
  7. Well it's taken nearly the whole year but the B-29 is finished and I've decided to make something a lot smaller, a bit more quickly. I've gone for the Airfix Bf109E-4 with an Eduard set for the cockpit, undercarriage, etc, etc and the Xtradecal Luftwaffe Battle of Britain decal set. I've not quite decided which aircraft I'm going to pick yet - it'll definitely have a yellow nose but I'm going to practice some mottling before making the final decision. I've got the cockpit done, fuselage halves together and things seem to be going pretty well so far. The cockpit is definitely imp
  8. Hi Fellow Modellers, Bit of a gap between my last posting and now as two builds have not quite passed muster, but this one's just about good enough to publish IMHO. Nice kit actually, went together well with no real issues(apart from disintegrating decals). First real trial of my Iwata Revolution CR and I'm most impressed. Paints are Vallejo MA. Let me know what you think. PS: From my research there seems to be some disputed colours for the prop spinner, some sources say red & white, I went with the Black-green & white as per kit diagram. PS: I know my canopy fram
  9. This 1/48 Airfix BF109E is the first kit I have built for something like 50 years! My eyesight and clumpy fingers can't cope with 1/72 scale so it’s 1/48 scale for me. It's the first time I have used an airbrush or attempted any kind of weathering. All paints used are Vallejo Model Air. Some parts are missing/broken off, courtesy of a heavy-handed grandson, hence the retracting undercarriage. I've used a clear Airfix stand which has been removed from the photo by magic. I’ve got some of the prop blur thingies but not convinced they look that effective. I’ll maybe try the no-blade method to s
  10. Dogfight Doubles - Supermarine Spitfire Vb / Messerschmitt Bf109-E Airfix 1:48 The air war over Malta in WWII was a bloody battle with the odds stacked hard against the residents and small Allied presence there. The island posed significant strategic value to the Axis forces to prevent attacks in its shipping lanes interrupting supplies to their forces in North Africa. Initially under assault from the Italians, the Germans reinforced them in early 1941. Malta was under threat not only from military attack on the island itself, but from resource and food starvation as a result of attacks
  11. Some pictures I took today of the completed build. WIP can be found here Next time I'll dust the model before taking the pictures And without the stand (removed using Inpaint) And paired with the older tool Airfix Sptitfire Mk1 which was the next build after this one. And again with stand edited out. And yes, I know the aerial connector is going to the wrong place in the fuselage on the 109. Also the Spit has both HF and IFF fitted which appeared correct according to the Xtradecal drawings for LO.A and, in my innocence, I reasoned that there might have been some crosso
  12. Hi folks, I tend not to do build logs on BM, but thought I'd show a photo of my current wip, the Airfix Bf109E, as I made a somewhat disparaging remark about it on my profile. It is a nice wee kit (the emphasis being on the 'wee', for those of us whose origins are North of Hadrian's Wall), but has some really annoying engineering / fit. Now I can bollix up a kit with an ability matched by few others, but when bits of a new tool Airfix don't fit off the sprue, then I get a bit annoyed. The wing uppers and lowers didn't match up and the lower edge of the LE slats sat proud of the forward edg
  13. One of the most colorful fighter squadron of German Luftwaffe was the "Jagdgeschwader 53". I have built some models from these with many work and effort. The color layout only decides in the end, even if the kit is very old or has lower quality. Some few months ago I was looking in my - actually from 23 volumes consisting (Die Deustche Jagdfliegerverbände" - and found in the part II (Sitzkrieg") "phoney war" an interesting template. It was a Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4, yellow "1" of 3. / JG 53 from OLtn. Wolfgang Lippert. On 23 November 1941, OLtn. Lippert baling out of his stricken aircraft, h
  14. Hi everyone. It is my first posting. I thinks, airfix new 1/72 scale airplane series are fantastic kits It work in 2013 summer. I hope you like this
  15. Here are some photos of a build of a BF109E I bought a little while ago. I've followed some astounding builds on this "work in progress site" which I can't compete with (especially the Skyraider!!) but I hoped that some of you might be interested in a less expert build. I've included some fabric seatbelts and have done some pipework and cables with lead wire I got on line but it is essentially out of the box. Thanks for watching and I'll post the finished article soon.
  16. Hi All, The first of my 3 (yes 3 ) builds will be the Heller 1/72 Messerschmitt BF109E.... First impressions of this kit don't seem too bad (for a kit older than I am - and not like the other two kits I'm building) the kit comes on 4 sprues and has the obligatory raised detail... The type of styrene used reminds me of recent new tool airfix kits - rather soft.... Seems to have minimal flash and a few nice details.... The kit will be built entirely out of the box (except maybe some nice new decals) Please find all sprue shots etc below - and please keep your expectations low....... Very v
  17. Eduard Bf109E-1 Weekend Edition 1:48 Eduard We’ve reviewed several of Eduards Bf109E’s here on Britmodeller so the base kit is probably one that you’ve become familiar with if not in person, then in internet review sections at least. I reviewed the E-4 Profipack last September which was my first introduction to the series and I was mightily impressed. In the constant fight for the skies, the 109 went through many evolutionary improvements, the E series or more affectionately known Emil being designed based on the lessons learned fighting for the Condor Legion in the Spani
