  1. I am going to start this new project I got Eduard PE seatbelts and a friend of mine gave me Brass antennas for the natchjager variant, but I am still wondering which camo I will be using, I decided I want to go with the green scribbles over the spot camo, but I love how the black underside looks on night fighter aircraft of this era, I haven't found any information about the aircraft represented on the artbox, so maybe I will be taking some artistic liberties and mix both options provided in the instructions. Basically I am thinking of doing the first scheme, but with the underside black camo of the second.
  2. Here are the final photos of my Ju 88C-6b from ICM in the markings of Luftwaffe nightfighter ace Prinz Heinrich zu Sayn Wittgenstein. The kit had great fit on most parts, except on the engine/nacelle assembly. I had to leave the engines off the model because they widened the centre of the nacelles and caused problems with the fit.
  3. At the start of the year I decided to build these two in a side by side build. As the colour schemes were the same I thought they would be a nice quick build. Wrong. I’ve thankfully managed to finish them in the last week during lockdown. Both kits are Airfix 1/72 scale and are now quite long in the tooth. The mouldings have raised panel lines and all the control surfaces are able to be moved, so if built straight out of the box looked quite toy like. Worst of all were the clear parts, hardly any indication as to where the framework goes, totally smooth and poorly fitting. I rescribed the panel lines on both models and removed the toy like hinges of the control surfaces. The Heinkel was also missing wheel bays for the undercarriage, so I cut them out. Both kits were airbrushed using Vellejo model air paints. I managed to get some photos outside this morning. Despite not really enjoying the builds, I’m fairly pleased with the results. First the He111 And the Ju88 I also built up the fairings around the gun mounts at the rear of the canopy as the kit only provides two holes.
  4. A happy new year to all. I’ve spent the last days of christmas and new year to finish a couple of Ju-88 models. I thought I’d show you my C-6 together with a Wellington I built long ago. I just gave the Wimpy a new coat of paint in a Coastal Command livery. Here the pair is shown in two different settings. Personally I prefer the one with the Ju closest to canera. All modelled in Modo, by me with some touch up in Photoshop afterwards
  5. Calling this one done. Was quite a big struggle for me at times... Mainly due to it's size alone. I broke off almost all the guns during the painting... All in all I really enjoyed the kit. The interior is nicely detailed, as are the engines. I had some real issues with getting the engines lined up inside the nacelles, but I think it just about turned out OK. The 4 colour paint job was a big jump for me - and due to my using Belton rattle cans (which come in an amazing variety of colours - but can be very thick) some of the surface details were lost under coats. I am quite happy with how the camo looks, but on reflection would have liked to make the sand / sky blotches a little more intricate. I used the box decals - with larger markings I sanded them a bit before applying them, which made it easier to chip at them with a sharp blade once microsol was on. Part of me wishes I had bought aftermarket decals for the actual unit... Was largely built OOB except for some wiring added to the gear, and some scratched details for the cockpit... I mainly enjoyed experimenting with varying acrylic shades on the interior and legs... WIP thread is here for those interested in my shambolic work along the way! Thanks for looking! Bruce
  6. Hi all, happy new years! Got myself a Christmas gift! Revell's 1/48 Ju88. Finally got started today - after a bit of procrastination. I plan to finish this in a 4-tone camo pattern I first saw beautifully done here: http://imodeler.com/2012/12/148-dragon-junkers-ju-88a4/ I don't know much at all about the scheme - except that it's apparently an aircraft from Stab II/KG 77, Sicily. I just love the splodged paint over the standard splinter scheme. I haven't found many photos of this - and the only ones don't show the wings... I will assume the over-paint was extended onto the wings too for the sake of this build. Anyway - never tried a 4-tone paint job before, so should be interesting. Once I delved into the HUGE box, the actual sprues and parts count was a little less intimidating. To my - far from expert - eye, it looks a nicely done kit. Lots of detail inside and out, engines, bombs, and nice surface details. I will be making this kit largely out of the box using rattle-cans and brushes, and while decal sheets for the Stab II/KG 77 aircraft do exist - at present I plan to recreate using spares and the kit sheet... As usual I will be making this mainly for the fun of it. I am not much of a rivet-counter, or a deep researcher, which I concede might drive others here mad with irritation. So forgive me if I paint something red that shouldn't be! So - it begins: As usual - started with the cockpit. Primed black. Then sprayed with Tamiya Haze Grey. I then tried a new trick I saw on youtube - making a wet palate - which I then mixed Vallejo blue grey pale, neutral grey, and basalt grey in. With this range of greys I then broke up the panels and side walls - using lighter shades on more prominent parts. Then details were picked out before an oil wash of black and umber went on. I also got the seat built and painted - using rolled flat solder for seat-belts. The dials on the cockpit's rear bulkhead looked a bit soft to me, so I made use of my new punch and die and boosted the dials up a bit before painting using the same steps as above. Leaving today's work as below. Quite happy so far, but it's early days! Thanks for looking, and all comments / notes most welcome. Bruce
  7. So as promised I am joining this GB! I can't stand ideally by while everyone builds an 88, especially as most are building the same kit I have! So you guessed it.... tonight Matthew, I will start building.... the 1/72 revell ju88 a4. (Actually I started building it last night....) So the kit! Untitled by robert mulvey, on Flickr Box art you all know and love Untitled by robert mulvey, on Flickr And the scheme I would like to do... I did have to put some real thought into this choice, I am currently re reading Roald's going solo (he would have been 100 this year) with the kids and thought of doing the Greek option, however the the sicily option won out as a) I will be doing the chaps that fired at it in the MTO GB b ) the Greek scheme is to late for when Roald was in Greece c) I prefer it d) did I mention it had a link to malta and I pretty much love anything to do with the place and e) it operated not far from where me and the wife had our honeymoon... rude not to Untitled by robert mulvey, on Flickr Last night I opened the box to take pictures and had the overwhelming urge to start something on it. I, for reasons completely unknown to me, started and completed masking the glazing by hand with tamiya tape..... half way through I regretted this, it was about the time the blade went straight through the tape, glazing and into my finger. Looking at it, it will be covered by paint once painted so hopefully I will get away with it 😕 Stix is having and influence on me, I have prepped parts before I need them and then sealed them away for safe keeping!! Does this mean my models will look like his now.... Anyway, there may not be much progress on this as the cockpit scares me and I want to move ahead with my hellcat (and tiny buffalo mate) so I can focus on this. Cheers for dropping by Rob
  8. Hi folks - finally joining my first group build I'm a big fan of all things Luftwaffe so thought this would be as good a chance as any to make a start in a group build. I've had this kit in my stash for a while now and have been looking for the perfect opportunity to start so here I go. Customary shot of the box art: As much as I love the scheme on the box art, I've decided to go for something a bit different and have gone for the following scheme: I thought this scheme would make a nice change as I've only ever completed Luftwaffe aircraft in the usual RLM 70/71 splinter camo so this will keep things interesting. The kit is excellent - well detailed for the scale and I've decided to build OOB. I've made a start on the items for the cockpit which even at this early stage nicely replicate the typically cramped and busy office of a Ju88. I'll make some tape seat belts to add to the realism but other than that I'll be using only the kit parts. Got a few more stages to go and then I'll be able to get the cockpit painted up and detailed.
  9. Hi all. Any of you kind folk know if the JU88 had indicator pin(s) for the pilot's visual confirmation of deployment of the dive brakes? If anyone knows of any reference photos I'd really appreciate a link. Thanks! Davis.
  10. Does anyone have any good photos or profiles of Ju 88A-17s? Preference would be to a machine used in the North against the Murmansk convoys. Try as I might, I haven't been able to find many pictures of this purpose built Ju 88 torpedo bomber. In addition, were all '88s in regular 70/71 paint scheme or were some of them painted in 72/73? Much Thanks
  11. http://www.network54.com/Forum/149674/message/1400526244/Crossdressing+in+Color Some great shots & words on a captured Ju88 in half & half markings. Evaluation number was FE1599 but another is also shown. Pete
