  1. Hello Dears, This is not a brand new project since I started it years ago !! Around 2006... But as I am cleaning up my little personnal MASDC, I restart some buildings ! If I say Fokker DR I, everybody think about the red baron.... Almost right gentlemen ! I read this very good book... And some others Pretty well writed, It is a police investigation but there is a solid backgroung and lots of anecdotes ! I have in mind to represent the 2 brothers at one of their very last meeting in March 1918 I got this in the box I put the Albatros
  2. A 1/48 Bulgarian MiG-21bis to be built from the exceedingly nice Eduard kit with a suitable interceptor loadout. I have seen a variety of explanations for the "bis" - latin for "second", or other interpretations like "again", "encore", "another" and the list goes on, but the title of "Another MiG" is perfect for the "bis" with other MiG builds in this GB. Also, seeing I am currently in Bulgaria a local subject seemed an ideal fit. Suitably motivated by images like this: And this great little video: I am into it;
  3. Hello all; After the odyssey that was the Lou IV project, and a false start with a biplane, I've taken a couple of weeks to get some mojo back and now settled on an F6F-3 Hellcat project for my next one. Specifically; Now, in trawling around the interwebs this appears, again, to be a popular subject for modellers (of course it is, loo at the markings!) but there is an absolute dearth of information about the pilots, their unit and what what they actually did. Eduard has this aircraft as a VF-34 Hellcat, but most of the images on the internet show it as a
  4. Bare Metal Spit – 1/48 RAAF Mk VIII A58-303 I’m in! How can you not do a Spitfire on Britmodeller particularly in a STGB? It should be a mandatory Rite of Passage. I planned to do my FR.47 but, it’s in Australia and I’m locked down in Europe. So, I tried the LHS for something and picked up the Eduard 1/48 HF boxing of the Mk VIII. I have chosen something a little different being a RAAF Spitfire Mk VIII serial A58-303 with its camo removed. It will be nice change to do a silver Spit especially in bare metal and not High-Speed Silver. Here’s a picture of
  5. Eduard's 1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109E's are once again being re-released to coincide with the 80th Anniversary of the B.O.B. not that that's the reason I decided to pull these two kits out of my stash!! I've had these kits since they were first released the E-3 in 2012 and the E-7 in 2013, I tried various methods to reduce the incorrect length of the fuselages, not being happy with any of them they went back into the stash until now, why now, who knows!!!!! The first kit was the Bf (or Me)109E-3 this one is a complete 'cadge up'(mess!). I tried to shorten the fuselage by removing
  6. Since I just finished off my X-1 yesterday, and having been put in quarantine by the management at work, I have spent some time rummaging around my kit stash for something to build. I KNEW tirelessly adding to my pile of unbuilt kits would pay off sooner or later! My choice is the Eduard L.F.G Roland CII, as I've always liked its advanced (for its time) aerodynamic shape and unusual look. Not well liked by its pilots because the wings severely restricts the view of the ground when you are coming in to land and made every attack from below a very unpleasant surprise, it was in fact develo
  7. Well... I count resist...! So, given I have to wait for a day or so for the varnish to harden on my MkIX before decalling, I looked around at my recently acquired Eduard kits, wondering what to build next. I have a couple of FW190's a D-9 and a D-11, I have a 109G-6 and I have a handful of Spitfires... And because this Group Build is so active, with so many great models and modellers, it seemed obvious I would continue on here... This is a group I wouldn't want to end..! So... this is what I have decided to do next... The only question n
  8. Hey all, at the moment I am building P51D, also by eduard, but somehow just lost the motivation for it after applying decals (not because the kit is crap, kit is the most amazing you can find in the scale, but just like that, sometimes happens). So decided to build a small diorama (never did one.). Well you need a plane for diorama first So Eduard Tempest let it be: Engine and gun bays arrived today together with some barrels from Tamiya which I believe will look nice: The actual kit should arrive tomorrow, so hopefully and give it a start on Sunday O
  9. My lock down builds. These two are Eduard 1/48, royal class boxing. They are very very nice kits. Eduard always seems to have lots of parts compared to most other brands, but this one in particular fits perfectly. No aftermarket needed, it’s all there. As always, some little mistakes were made, but I enjoyed the build a lot and that’s what matters most.
  10. Giddey to all! Here some pic`s of my FW 190 A 8, all comments welcome as usual, especially if you can suggest something I can do better! Hope you like it! Cheers Andreas
  11. After having my last 2 projects ending on The Shelf Of Semi-Doom, I was looking for something easy and quick. And it doesn't come more easy than the Eduard Bell X-1 ProfiPack, if you ignore the etched parts that is. Which I won`t. I don`t think there is any need to give a history lesson on the X-1. It was built to break the sound barrier, shaped like a 0.5" bullet since they knew those were stable in supersonic flight, and it did so in 1947. The Eduard kit is about 20 years old (I think?), and has few parts and pretty rudimentary detail so the addition of the ph
  12. This is Eduard's Nieuport XI depicted as one of French ace Jean Navarre's mounts. Unfortunately this wasn't an option provided by Eduard hence the missing 6 from the serial number. The build itself was fine but on the painting side I found applying the edging tapes a bit tedious and feel I could have made a better job of them.
  13. Hello everyone... This is my first finished build of 2020. It is an 1/48 Bf.109G10 from Eduard. I was given decals by another member to do it in Yugoslavian Air Force markings from 1950. I took a liking to the camouflage when I saw him build a similar machine in the 1950’s NATO Group build last year. I hope it meets with your expectations. Questions, comments and or thoughts ? Here is a link to the build thread if you're interested ? https://www.bri
  14. Ah, yes another Tempest Picked this up at Telford, started it almost as I was driving home (well stuck in traffic) but didn't finish it till recently. Finally got the camera out and took a few shots. Only thing I did was to modify the spinner to close up the gaps based on the build the General did elsewhere on this site, otherwise as it came in the box. Lovely kit. Roll on the Mk II. Tim
  15. Hi, here is my Bf109E1 from eduard weekend edition kit aircraft flown by Hans Phillip paints are gunze acrylics
  16. A build from a couple of years ago, the excellent Eduard Spitfire XVI - built from the box with the addition of a wire aerial. There is some speculation that the serial should be RW394 and not RW393 but the serial is hidden from all but the bottom view anyway. No problems with the kit at all. Many people moan about the 2 piece cowl top but I simply superglued the 2 pieces together and carefully sanded away the joint - not losing too much of the delicate detail on the top. I have build a couple of the Eduard Spitfires and I tend to tack the cowl top on for painting, then remove to insert the ex
  17. I won't dwell on the kit in much detail - as most here will have read thorough reviews or seen WIPs - but it's a real treat to build. Lovely detail, and nicely engineered. My only issues was that for some reason the top of the instrument panel ended up too high, and as a result the instrument hood (?) didn't fit. Took a bit of whittling. My fault I am sure. I don't have an airbrush, which has always put me off making planes which require the typical Luftwaffe mottling along the fuselage. But I do love the FW190, so doing a desert scheme seemed a neat sidestep of the mottling fear.
  18. This is one of my older builds. I use kitchen foil for OMF. For me it look interesting.... I hope you like it. Thanks for watching...
  19. A few photos of my present (and slowly) built Bf 109. First time with black basing or almost black basing by RLM66... ... and color preshadings.
  20. Hello Dears, I say, very shy, because I think that the dame was afraid to show herself on BM, She has been painted, de-painted and re-painted, The exhaust stacks will not go on their palce (my mistake) Broke an UC leg, and tailwheel (twice) Chemical reaction with the decalstransfer and so on, I was about to think that there was a curse on her since she was almost finished. So I took some photos before anything broke again It is the Eduard Mk VIII Spitfire with old Superscale decals The building has been straightforward, but I did have a bad idea....
  21. Hi Everyone, This is a recent build of mine, Eduard's Spitfire finished using Montex masks. Vallejo paints used throughout, even for the panel wash. Its a very nice kit to build .... All the best Gary
  22. Hi folks, Just took some pic`s of my latest completion, Eduards 1/48 Messerschmitt bf-108 kit, that I`ve completed to represent an aircraft of The KNIL ( Netherlands East Indies Air Force ) based at Andir, West Java, Indonesia, around 1941 Built almost completely OOB with just seat belts and decals which came from the stash I intended to do it as a French Indochina Nord 1000, but couldn`t decide whether they were blue, green or O/D and came across a couple of builds of this aircraft whilst searching and was hooked. Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking Cheers Russ
