  7. #23/2020 My dad´s latest completion. Airfix kit, seatbelt decals for the pilot seat from the sparesbox, masking tape for the other seats, painted with a selfmixed RLM65 (mix not known anymore), ochre paint mixed with Tamiya XF-60 Dark Yellow and Gunze H310 Tan, Gunze H309 FS34079 green and Tamiya XF-10 Brown. Markings are from Lift Here Decals and LF models. Used EZ Line for the antenna wire. The kit provides only one type of pitot tube, so my dad cut off the lower part and glued a plastic rod onto it to get the needed one. Build thread here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235079732-balkans-brit148-bristol-blenheim-mki-royal-yugoslav-airforce/ Besides the initial two British Blenheims which came in silver, Yugoslavia produced 40 licence aircraft that where factory painted in the Yugo 3-tone scheme, a further 20 used RAF aircraft were bought too. These came in DG/DE over black camo. Most of them were repainted in Yugo camo until the German attack in April 1941. Decided to build one of the repainted planes. Lift Here Decals were for aircraft No.3548. This was the only imported Blenheim that received additional defensive guns and a new turret. Because my dad is no scratchbuild god he decided to leave the number away and apply none. The roundels were too big, so I bought a LF Models Yugo Bf110 decal sheet (used one of these recently as you may remember) and these roundels suited much better.

  11. #15/2020 My dad wanted to build the good old Fujimi 110 now for a while. It can´t keep up with the newer Eduard and Dragon offerings but still makes a nice model. Decided to do an exotic scheme. Used parts from a True Details resin cockpit, EZ Line for the antenna wires and brake lines, decals from LF Models, nose MGs from the sparesbox, camo done with Gunze H67 RLM65, Tamiya XF-60 Dark Yellow, XF-64 Red Brown and XF-58 Olive Green. Build thread here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235073364-under-new-management148-messerschmitt-bf110c-4-royal-yugoslav-airforce/ On April 1st 1941 a German Bf110C4 flew from Vienna, via Hungary with intended destination in Romania. Due to a navigation error, the aircraft landed at Kraljevo airfield in central Serbia. The crew,Lt. Hans Diehter,Uoff.Wilhelm Pries and mechanic Eugen Schaufelle, was interned, the plane overpainted and a few days later transferred to Belgrade and later to the temporary airfield Veliki Radinci where it was destroyed on April 12th 1941 so that it didn´t fall back into German hands after Yugoslavia was invaded on April 6th 1941.

  12. My dad acquired a liking for 110s at the moment. So after starting the Iraqi one he will soon start a Yugoslav one. This aircraft changed ownership after it´s crew made a navigation mistake and landed in Yugoslavia instead of Bulgaria, a week before the German invasion in Yugoslavia. The crew was detained and the 110 received VVKJ markings and camo.

  13. I've recently acquired a camouflage paint mask set for the 1/48 Tamiya Meteor F.1 from LF Models. It will be my first experience with painting masks. I have used self-adhesive canopy masks from Chris Loney of EZ Masks before with good results. One tip that Chris suggests is to wet the canopy (or the individual vinyl piece) in some soapy water. That allows one to arrange the mask into position. My question is will the same technique work with these LF painting masks as well? Like the EZ Masks, they are self-adhesive and I'm wondering how much "wiggle room" one might have when applying these to the painted surface. I'm hesitant to dip one of the LF pieces into soapy water without knowing if that will botch it up or allow for easier placement. I could sure use some advice before proceeding further. Thanks so much for any help! Cheers, Gary.

  19. #29/2015 Zvezda kit with decals from LF Models, painted with Gunze and Tamiya acrylics, antenna wires with EZ Line. In 1943 the Spanish Airforce received about a dozen F-4s which were stationed partly in France and Spain. Not much info about these, seems a few were painted in single RLM79. According to the old, non available anymore French book "AVIONS Hors Série No. 5 Les Messerschmitt Espagnols" some were painted in a 3-tone camo similiar to the Spanish He112, to say colors close to the early Luftwaffe ones. You find profiles on the web that show a green-green-grey camo, also LF Models manual shows that scheme but my dad kept to the "Luftwaffe" grey-green-brown color scheme.
  20. Not a P-40, but a close ancestor, one of the evolutionary links between the P-40 and the P-36, and a quite strange looking machine to boot.... (New subject, on edit) The kit is an old resin offering by LF Models wife sniped for me off E-bay not too long ago.... The kit is...interesting.... It is a sort of combination copy of and conversion set for the AML Hawk 75/P-36 kit. It has that kit's resin and photo-etch (as well as its instructions), and a resin copy of its assembled wing. Along with this comes a fuselage and associated bits, various scoops and fairings, and tail surfaces, with an instruction sheet for their use. There is a real hand-made, kitchen-table air about the whole thing. I have only done one resin kit before, and suspect this is not the best choice for a sophomore effort in the medium.... Once I had the pour blocks trimmed off the fuselage pieces I did some basic interior work. The AML interior elements are very nice, but since the cockpit of the YP-37 is not directly over the center-section of the wing assembly, and its interior contours are very different, they are not appropriate. I expect I will use them on a future Hawk 75/P-36 project. I dummied up some basic stuff, and set about putting the fuselage halves together.... Which is where the real fun begins.... Both pieces warp outwards from the center-line, the port worse than the starboard, and there is also a bit of a twist towards the nose. I decided it was best to line up the tail elements first, their fillets being critical, and so began gluing from the rear. The nose took a couple of tries, as lining up certain 'landmarks' there put a hint of banana into the thing. Once gluing was complete, some work had to be done on the section contours and taper of the area behind the cockpit; the port side piece curved a bit in plan, which looked wrong and caught the eye, and was too wide towards the bottom. Some work had to be done on upper-decking section contours in the nose as well. Here it is now.... Instrument panel is a decal from a Monogram P-36 sheet,and some crude representations of pedals were added underneath. Seat and stick will be added from the top later. I still have some concerns about the nose, but will try finesse before plunging into heroic measures. Much will depend on how the fit of the wing to fuselage turns out. I prefer to think of the initial fit as offering me many opportunities.... Note that the starboard root fillet rides up on the wing when the port mating surface rests against that of the wing on that side. There are fillet pieces in the kit to address the apparent leading edge root disjunction. Underneath, though, is something else.... At any rate, next order of business is to get the wing to fit, and then determine where matters stand with the nose. Should it prove necessary, I reserve the possibility of swapping in the wing assembly from a half-built Monogram P-36. I am not sure I should not have stuck with my original instinct to do this by blending an Academy Tomahawk I will never build with that unfinished P-36, which I threw over when I learned of this kit. But we will see. If I ever run into the fellow who did not quite match our bid in that auction, I would tell him he is a lucky man, and dodged a bullet....
