  1. Hello everyone... This is build #1 for me here in the group build. I will be Using Heller’s great little Bf.109B/C to build a plane operating in Spain by Hptm. Werner Mölders while flying with the condor legion. Here you can see the original decals of which I will attempt to use some. If they fail I will fall back on these AML Decals. Mölders plane is the overall RLM 63 grey/green over 65it is the one on the right marked 6•79 with the red spinner. If something goes horribly wrong I will Fall back to my second option on the left. Hptm. Haro Harder marked 6
  2. Seeing as this is the Helicopter and Gyrocopter GB I though I would enter with both a helicopter and also an autogryro. And as I have 2 Cierva C30's I might as well build two at once! So we have Merlin Models plastic and white metal kit and Azur plastic and resin kit - building two at once - yeah that will make sense when we have a few different model materials! Also to incorporate into one of the kits will be the Aeroclub engine. I am a big fan of Spanish Civil War aircraft so one will be the Republican machine shown and not sure what the other will be. British civil is a posibil
  3. Dear all, As requested by Jerzy (JWM), I herewith post some images of the Roden Heinkel He 111B I built a few years ago. Markings are mostly from the kit, although I swapped the white fuselage numbers for black ones, as they should have been. The trick I used to get the fuselage to close, was to add a shim (1.5 mm behind the cockpit, 0 mm at the tail), which allows the clear parts and the bomb rack to fit). I kept weathering rather light, just adding a pin wash to the control surfaces, the tank filler caps and the bomb bay. Certainly not my best result, but
  4. Hello all ... I recieved this for Christmas from my Brother in law. It has markings for the Spanish civil war. Anyone have any info on the type during the SCW, or maybe a place where i can find some info online, asking @Artie ? Books do me no good as i haven't any room for a library at the moment. Dennis
  5. I just received my copy of ‘German Eagles in Spanish Skies’ by David Johnston. Wonderful coverage of the early prototype Bf109’s up to the 109E ‘s in Spain. I’ve been collecting books on the SCW aircraft for 40+ years and have to say 90% of those shown in this book are new to me. Lots of information on the transformation from the early silver-gray color to the European colors and even one 109B with a solid light fuselage with splinter camouflaged wings. Pilot interviews, lots of technical drawings as well. Charlie
  6. What is it, masochism, stupidity, senility?? After all of the complaining I did about the AMG Bf 109 A build of a few months ago one might think I would never touch another AMG 109 again. Well, the farther that model progressed the more I grew to like the kit. Sure, it had its fair share of fit problems and really, really stupid engineering, but the final product looked the part and it is by far the best Jumo powered 109 available. This time, I decided to go beyond "out of the box", but there actually isn't very much needed. The kit includes a Nice photo-etch fret with seat belts, landing

    Ju 52 SCW

    Starting to plan the paint for a Ju 52 in SCW period. I have the Owl decals, and am using a 1/72 Heller kit as the basis. I plan on doing 22*101. https://eshop.owl-czech.eu/detail/1-72-ju-52-spanish-transport/ I have not been able to find a photograph of the specific airplane. The Owl instructions seem to indicate RLM 63, but I wonder if L40/52 would be a better match? I've checked the the M. Ullmann book as a reference, without much joy. Any assistance or help much appreciated. KE
  8. Hi, CASA factory was building under licence early variant of Vickers Vildebeest with Hispano Suiza V-engine (Vickers type 245, whereas Vildebeest Mk I is type 244 and Mk II is type 258 as given in instuction for model by Special Hobby). 25 of them were produced in Getafa (Spain) with exchangeable wheel/float u/c. I build this model with GB "Britts abroad". Model presents machine with serial T-17, blonging to Grupo 72 Defensa de Costas in 1938, based close to Barcelona. I have painted in my interpretation of her scheme, which is know only from this photo. Please note that f
  9. Dear all, Please find below some images of my Airco DH.9 Hispano Suiza from the Aviación Militar, on the eve of the Spanish Civil War. For this conversion I used the Classic Plane vacuform fuselage for the DH9, with a modified nose and upper front fuselage, combined with the wings, tail plane and undercarriage of the Airfix DH.4. The Roundels came from a Loire 46, the crow and tail number were custom printed by Arctic Decals I finished it already last year, but didn't have any decent photos until recently (Thanks LJ). I hope you like it
  10. Hi all, would anyone have any reference material for the Opel Blitz being used in the SCW, would these have been painted in the early three tone camouflage or the generic field grey/green? Also the kit I'm planning on using would be: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/181439-icm-35401-typ-2-5-32-1-5to I know they were used quite widely by the Condor Legion but information is a little scarce
  11. This is the 1/72 Azur short run release of the Cierva C.30 Autogiro. A curious looking aircraft which is unlikely to have seen use during the war, there were a few in the Spanish Air force before the war broke out but their fate is unknown. The kit is what you would expect from Azur and didn’t cause any problems, it is best to take your time around the under carriage at the front as its very delicate, I also had a slight issue with the rotor blades as the resin part in the middle was damaged, I replaced those parts with stiff wire. I finished the model in Mr Metal
  12. Pz.Kpfw.I Ausf.A Spanish Foreign Legion, Granadella 1938. This vehicle is ‘214’ from the Spanish Foreign Legion Tank Brigade, 2nd Company, 1st Battalion, 1st Platoon. This machine was based in Grandella in the province of Alicante in 1938. The Panzer 1 was a very light armoured and under gunned tank even for the 1930’s, it was best suited to a role of infantry support as it was inadequate against other tanks. Dragon’s Pz.Kpfw.I Ausf.A is a great little kit, I found no fit issues and enjoyed the simplicity of the build, the etch exhaust shrouds are supplied i
  13. The Boeing 281 was the export version of the Boeing P26 Peashooter and was most notably used in China during the late 1930’s. Not so well known is the single aircraft that featured over the skies of Spain during the Civil War and although it was only one machine it did seem to strike a chord with the republican forces and this lead to the nickname “Boeing” being given to the more numerous Polikarpov I 16 due to its similar shape (from a distance) and it also being a monoplane which was a rare thing at the time. The Spanish Model 281 was bought after its demonstration at Barajas airfield o
  14. Hi All I have a build log currently running on my blog and I figured I may as well post it here for you to look at, its my first major 1/32 build and I'm really enjoying the bigger scale! In this build log I’ll be building the Trumpeter 1/32 Ju-87A-1 ‘Anton’ and I’ll be adding the Eduard Big Ed set BIG3351 along with Montex K32296 Mask set for 29-5 from the VJ/88 experimental group in Spain 1937. For reference I’m using Hikoki Publications Condor by Patrick Laureau and Military Illustrated M
  15. Another one off the production line.... Polikarpov I-16, Type 10, 1. Squadron, Lina Base, Spain, April 1938. The kit is somewhat daunting when you're first presented with the sprues and care will be needed throughout the build, there are no major problems it's just a bit of an old school build, meaning filler on every join and wing roots with a large gap etc. I used super glue as a filler which worked quite well, the few panel lines were then re-scribed and I added a few rivets around the engine cowling. The cockpit is sparse, as the real thing and you can't really
  16. Hi, A single Messerschmitt M 35 b, initially as EC-BDB then 30-73 was in Spain during Civil War. There is a side colour profile for it on wing palette - but - is there any photo of this machine? I almost finished model (Huma 1/72 - soon on RFI) of her but I have doubts especially on look of upper (and bottom?) sides of wings. Perhaps there should be some black strips or white crosses - the profile is not suggesting them... I've googled many hours iincluding Aeronet etc - without success, but I have feeling that I've seen once (?) a photo of her. Can anybody help? Cheers Jerzy-Wojtek
