  1. For this group build I will be doing the Vickers 432. An aircraft originally intended to hunt at high altitude enemy intruders. Unfortunately, for Vickers it was not a successful aircraft. I have been obsessed with this aircraft since the mid 90s and even turned a wooden plug, with the vain hope of vac forming over it. Here you see it in comparison the the resin Kora fuselage that I will be using for my build. My first source was Aeroplane Monthly, March 1992 that really got me excited about the subject. I reckon I must have scaled up the general arrangement drawing from the Putnam book
  2. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Hasegawa Junkers Ju-88 T-3, the last reconnaissance version of this type. I modified the Hasegawa kit (02073) which represents a T-1, to T-3 standard by swapping the BMW radials for Jumo inline engines. Some Hasegawa Ju-88/188 kits contain both engines, and I had left overs from a previous build. The paint scheme was taken from a color profile in the KORA decal set (https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/KORCS7247?result-token=PzZIM) "Junkers Ju-88 T-3 Conversion". I have seen no original photograph of this aircraft (although one alledg
  3. Hey all! Today I have a question about the FW-44 in Brazilian service. After finishing my Model 256, I've decided it needs a friend to share the skies with, and I've settled on Kora's cute little FW-44. The problem is that I can only find one photo of the type - a museum piece. I trust that Kora got their info right, but they have made mistakes before, so I wondered if anyone might know where I could find more photos of the type, and specifically of Brazilian examples. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, and Stay Healthy, Tweener
  4. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my latest, the 1/72 KORA Fw-190 F9 Panzerblitz. This version was the last variant of the famous "Butcher Bird", armed with unguided anti-tank aerial rockets. These rockets were similar to the R4M Orkan air-to-air rocket used by the Messerschmitt Me 262. The kit contains the well-known Eduard sprues (for the A-8 version), some resin and photo-etch add-ons plus a decal sheet for 4 marking options. I painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, according to instructions, as I could not find an original photograph of this particular aircraft.
  5. Hi All, I hope I can build this subject this year. There are couple others before in pipeline and I have some questions related to topic. D-AFFT was quite special plane. It was operated by Hansa Luftbild and this was basically unit to get intel information outside Germany before war. This plane crashed in Helsinki Malmi airport 1.10.1939 and crashed plane was returned quietly back to Germany. My first question is: Was this plane carrying cameras and if so where those were located? Second is: Should I use Revell kit as a starting point or Kora conv
  6. Kora has just released a 1/72nd Messerschmitt Bf.109G family - in fact reboxing from the AZmodel Bf.109G kits (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234948834-172-messerschmitt-bf109g-k-families-by-azmodel-released-g-1g-2tropg-6trop-release-january-2016/) + bonus.

  7. Hello everyone. This is Messerschmitt Bf 109G-12 Yugoslav version, 15/9615, 83 Fighter Regiment, Yugoslav Air Force, Cerklje airfield, Slovenia, Yugoslavia, 1948-49. 1:72 AZ Model kit with Kora resin conversion set. Following the Second World War, Yugoslavia received some standard two-seater Bf 109G-12s from Bulgaria. Needing more, they converted a couple of one-seaters. This conversion visually differs from the original G-12 in the rear cockpit section where an Erla Haube canopy was used instead of the special G-12 rear canopy. As soon as I found out about this variant I went l
  8. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 KORA Focke Wulf Fw-190 F9 "Panzerblitz". The kit features Eduard's plastic sprues for an A-8 (some modification on the lower wings is required), a bag of resin bombs and rockets, three small photo-etch frets and a decal sheet. The bombs and rockets are not better than the plastic parts from the Eduard F8 kit. I had a left-over weapons sprue from a F8, so they were duly replaced. A small photo-etch frame supplies seat belts and pedals, but no instrument panel. Instrument panels are provided as black/white paper print-outs o
  9. Because Doozer wanted to see more ;-) here´s a second and last model for today in an unusual rare scheme that you may find interesting. The Model shows an a/c that flew with 1/2 Szturmowi Orliak in September 1944. At this time Bulgaria had already changed sides and fought with the Soviets against the Germans. Not 100% sure about the white ID markings but they seem plausible. The ususal yellow IDs for this area where most probably overpainted to avoid being mistaken for a Luftwaffe a/c and being shot down by the Russians. Used a Hasegawa kit. The decals are a mixture of Kagero, K

  11. I've long wanted to do a recce version of the Bf109 with two tanks under the wing, but have lacked knowledge of various details. When I saw the new Kora release of the AZ Bf109G I noticed that the boxart showed a pipe going back from the rear of the engine running underneath the centre-section. OK, I thought, this guy has done his research, I'll buy the kit. It arrived today (good service Hannants) but the instructions and parts show no sign of this pipe. So where does it go to, and is there another on the other side? What does it look like at the other end? I'm guessing that i

  24. Hannant's new releases include a superb range of parts and transfers from Kora for the Airfix Tiger Moth. Many different markings, with resin wheels, floats, rudder, fuselages and even a choice of slatless and Australian wings - though I'd have thought the conversion was easy enough. Ed? The wings will presumably work with the slightly less accurate AZ kit too. I thought that the Queen Bee had straight sides - maybe this is mentioned in the instructions? I've no link to either company, just impressed by the choice.
  25. Well Gents, I got my latest stash-mates in the mail today; they include the CMR Westland Welkin, a Special Hobby A-35 to be painted up as a Navy TBV Georgia, and of course the Kora Vickers 432 high altitude interceptor (amongst others ) After careful reading on wiki I understand that only two aircraft were considered, and in 1944 the test flight plane was scrapped. If this beauty had gone into service, what sort of camo would it wear over the skies of Great Britain? If you have any suggestions as to which other roles it might take on, I would be happy to hear those too. Please do throw i
