  1. #15/2019 The second of five Emils done. Eduard E-3 Weekend Edition, mostly Cutting Edge decals, the large Balkenkreuz were taken from an Eduard E-3 ProfiPack, plastic rods and lead wire for the brake lines, EZ Line for the antenna wire, Gunze aqueous RLM 71/02/65. Furthermore shortened the too long legs about 2-3mm to avoid the "storch" look. Build thread here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235053119-walking-bird148-messerschmitt-bf109e-3-jg51/ The model shows the aircraft "Gretel" of Oberfeldwebel Johann "Hans" Illner, 4./JG51 during
  2. Besides the Slovakian Emil, my dad decided to build some more E´s. This time a JG51 bird with the "Spaziervogel" emblem using an Eduard weekend edition. Funny how old and new Eduard plastic are mixed in this kit. DSC_0004 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0005 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
  3. #25/2018 Besides the recently posted Swiss G-6, my dad also built a Swiss E-3. Switzerland purchased 80 E-3 in 1939 and built 8 further aircraft as a licence version which were delivered in 1944. The aircrafts stayed in service until December 1949. Tamiya kit, crosses and stripes painted (Montex masks for the crosses), Eduard seatbelts, EZ line for aerials. brake lines and landing gear indicators with plastic rods. Gunze and Tamiya acrylics used, aircraft number and rest of decals from Cutting Edge and Tamiya. The Swiss Emils differed slightly from the German originals. All differ
  4. My dad hasn´t built an Emil for a while now, so he decided to give the Swiss G-6 some company and build an E-3 too. Using the good old Tamiya kit with Cutting Edge decals. Won´t be an oob build because we found out, that the Swiss Emils differed from the German versions in some points, so some changes and adaptions have to be made.

  5. #23/2018 And the next roll out... After a German Bf110G nightfighter crashlanded in Switzerland, Germany delivered 12 Bf109G-6 to Switzerland so that the 110 would be destroyed in exchange and the technology kept secret. Switzerland used these G-6 only until 1948 due to many technical problems. These were caused by minor quality work and sabotage by the POWs and KZ inmate workers in the factories. After two emergency landings due to engine failures, a lost canopy during flight, and a crash into other aircraft on the ground, J-704 only had about 57 flight hours when it was withdrawn

  7. #5/2018 When German bomber pilots converted to the 262, they started to train on old trainers and biplanes, then usually moved on to 109s before they got to fly the Schwalbe. Partly these 109s were also used for combat with the KG(J)s. Sadly there is only one pic of "white 4" that shows it after it was shot down. In earlier years this machine was designated as a G-10. But there is a partial Werknummer known which is from an Erla G-14 block. Then there is discussion if it´s a normal G-14 or a G-14/AS. My dad went for a G-14. On the pic you can see a sharp edged light grey quadrant on th
  8. My dad is still on a 109 run, just finshed the Graf 109K now he has already started a new one. Gonna do a G-14 which was used in KG(J)54 for pilot training (KG(J)27 is possible too), maybe also for airfield security, later transferred to KG(J)6. Bomber pilots that converted to Me262 usually started training with old biplanes like He46, Go145..., then moved to 109s and the to the 262. DSC_0009 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr wrongly? designated as G-10, if it´s true a (partial) Werknummer is know which would be an Erla G-14 block DSC_0011 by Reinhar
  9. Because it still takes some time for the next fresh roll-out from my dad´s "factory" I´m gonna post several maybe more interesting models he has already built in the past, hope you don´t mind, don´t want to overwhelm you with posts :-) In December 1944 the Hungarians received about a dozen Bf110G-4 Nightfighters that served with the 101st Nightfighter Squadron. It was planned to establish a second squadron , pilots were trained but never equipped with aircraft. The 101 was first stationed in western Hungary but due to the advance of the Red Army the unit was soon transferred to Austria wh

F-111C Aardvark RAAF Academy upgrade boxing 1/48 -Cutting Edge seamless Tripple Plow I intakes - Eduard seatbelts - Eduard detail for the nozzle shrouds (for the HB kit actually) - Montex masks - Academy BRU rack with Mk-82 bombs (from the E model kit ) Eduard Mk.82 bombs here: work in progress I made the swing wings work, against the general opinion here that model kits should not be toys.... that is alright, but the F-111 looks fantastic with wings spread , in comabt postion and swept back, especially t
  11. So, after some late decision on joining in , and after all the necessary content has arrived today, I am ready to present my share for this GB! sorry for those who think we have enough C models already but, that is the one it will be! no chance of finishing the F model also in the stash with Paragon wings imho..... maybe large model STGBs should be extended a bit F-111C Aardvark RAAF Academy 1/48 -Cutting Edge seamless Tripple Plow I intakes - Eduard seatbelts - Eduard detail for the nozzle shrouds (for the HB kit actually) - Montex masks
  12. Gosh I had trouble figuring out what to build for this GB, it's safe to say I have changed my mind many times, right up to the stage where I had almost finished this starting thread. I had been already to build an Hs-129B-3 (75mm version) and full AM bits and pieces including vector resin engines! But I was doing some final research as I was writing up the thread when everything changed. For some reason I was never quite sure if the Fw-190D’s were used against the Soviets and to what level and thought it would be a bit hard on the research side…..but I was wrong (there were actually even som
  13. Anyone remember this one from the Lightning GB? http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234968483-early-airfix-48th-lightnings/ Poor thing has been lingering at one corner of the bench while other projects were completed but a determination to finish off various stalled models this year seen her get some attention lately. Been working on the seat that comes with the Cutting Edge cockpit set. Some base coats of Humbrol enamels got it to here; Then plenty dry brushing and detail painting, along with the addition of fuse wire handles got this; Once this is installed it'll be

  15. Hi all, This was meant to be a quickie build to fill time whilst waiting for aftermarket parts for my F-4F Phantom in the Britmodeller Phantom STGB. Because i used enamel paints and there was loads of masking, it eventually took a lot longer than i expected! It's the good old AMT/Ertl kit with a Cutting Edge cockpit, Squadron canopy (the kit one was short shot) and PJ Productions pilot figure. Everything else from the box, even the yellow decals turned out OK. It was also my first go of using masks for national insignia, and the stripes were also painted rather than the provided decals. I
  16. This is another kit falling victim to my new found battle to eliminate my shelves of doom; kits started, but just never quite finished for one reason or another. It is the HobbyCraft 1/48 Bf 109-C. I found this box, opened it up and discovered it was painted, decaled and just missing the miscellaneous parts that need to be put on at the end of the build. Why I didn’t complete it is a mystery to me. I am not even sure when I started this kit. Apparently, I bought the HobbyCraft kit so I could use Cutting Edge decals for a Bf 109 D-1. Maybe I thought it didn’t look like a D model, but
