  1. I hadn't expected to be doing a third build in this GB but I've hit the doldrums (see @mark.au for definition) with my Mosquito MkXVIII and need something to stop me fiddling whilst waiting for paint or glue to dry and spoiling it. So from the stash is this Bought some time between 1976 and 1979. I must have had a penchant for getting the odder versions of well known subjects if you count this and the other 2 builds of mine in this GB. For more of the historic background and a build to which I will refer is this from @PeterB done last year. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235124107-messerschmitt-bf-110-d1r1finished/#comment-4719890 Because I'm using this as a distraction to stop me messing up the Tsetse, I will be doing this straight from the box. The only planned divergence from that aim will be to add some seat belts, try and fix (ie shorten) the main undercarriage and maybe do a 70/71 splinter pattern finish instead of plain green as per instructions. Peter also pointed out that the FA decals are likely to be incorrect but I'm probably going to ignore that having no replacements in the stash. I won't do a full sprue shot but just show that the bits are still sealed in plastic as when bought 40odd years ago (and which seems ............. no, no, that's "old man" talk! Get on with it!) Right. Let's see how quickly we can get this to the same stage as the Tsetse. See you later and thanks for looking. Rob
  2. Morning all! In these strange times I seem to be getting more modelling done than usual - I'm working from home and life continues but no socialising or sport means more time at the bench... I've just finished Eduard's lovely Fw190 and while I've got my eye in thought I'd go for another Luftwaffe subject, Eduard's Bf110. As is traditional I've started with the cockpit. After assembling the main parts I gave it a coat of flat black and then aluminium: I sealed this in with a coat of gloss, sprayed some hairspray and then covered it with RLM02. After letting it all dry, I used an old, stiff brush to chip away some of the top coat. I've then been weathering with artists oils (thinned and unthinned). Here's where I've got to so far, the side wall is nearly there and I've started the rear section of the cockpit: The kit comes with photoetch parts and the control panel goes together great: I used a nice trick I saw on here recently (sorry, can't remember who it was) where you apply gloss varnish to the back of the etch to form shiny, see through covers for the dials. It's a bit hard to photograph but this made me irrationally happy 🙃 . For the paint job I'm going to represent the aircraft on the front of the box: I like the look of the bombs and fuel tanks and the yellow keeps the theme going with the other Luftwaffe aircraft on my shelf: Thanks for looking, more to come soon. Look after yourselves! Sam
  3. Good Afternoon I am about to start building Eduard's awesome Messerschmitt Bf 110D, the problem is reference material. Can anyone recommend any good books or websites with good quality pictures in it including cockpit images. Squadron do a fantastic 109e one but not a 110. I understand this can be quite tough as there is only one example aircraft left. I am not 100% sure how accurate the instruction colours are either, anyone have any thoughts on this? Any help would be really appreciated as I am planning on leaving the windows open for people to look inside. Cheers.
  4. Bf110c/d Etch & Brassin Resin Upgrades for Eduard Kit 1:72 Eduard The recently released Bf110c/d from Eduard is a stunning kit in its own right (see review HERE). As good as it is from the box, there’s always a way to make a kit better and Eduard have provided their own solutions. If you really want to go to work on yours, here’s three opportunities to do just that in the form of an etch pack and two of Eduard’s Brassin resin upgrades catering for the wheels and open nose to reveal the guns. Etch set 72555 Despite the etch sheet being quite small, several improvements are catered for. The main wheel bay gets the inner rib work added and the main gear is treated to brake lines. The tail wheel benefits from an Oleo scissor connector (note, the Profipack comes with etch scissors for the mainwheels, but the weekend addition probably doesn’t). The lower curved intake on the engine gets an grill too. Several cockpit enhancements are supplied, predominantly side wall detail additions and handles. The radiators get a makeover by getting cooling matrices that simply fit to the kit parts and the variable radiator exit doors can be replaced with etch parts giving something far more accurate in scale. The bombs are enhanced by having their fins replaced. A useful tool is provided on the fret that secures the fins in the correct location whilst you glue them. Finally, the tail surfaces get etch trim tab actuators. Brassin Nose Guns (Set 672010) The nose on the kit is moulded closed which is fine if that’s what you want. If you prefer to have the gun pack open then this little gem is for you. You get upper and lower nose cone panels all beautifully detailed, inner structural work and 4 x MG 17 7.62 guns that locate onto the inner frame. The ammunition boxes are designed to be displayed in their open position to the left of the nose where the armourers would reload them. Etch access panels are provided that protrude downwards when the boxes are out. As you might expect, the detail in the set is stunning and adds a great deal of interest to the nose area. Image from Eduards site Brassin wheels (Set 672006) Whilst the kit parts aren’t bad, the detail in the resin replacements is a little sharper and more refined. With a subtle wash, the detail will really stand out in these. Be aware that two types of wheels are provided in the kit, the other type has a perforated outer ring so check your references first if such accuracy is important to you. Conclusion The base kit is already one of (if not) the best kit on the market, but that hasn’t stopped Eduard from providing to make it even better. These sets really do add improvements which would look rather special whether in a diorama or simply stood by itself on a shelf. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
