  1. Hello, While browsing plans and photos, I noticed two distinct wing fuel tank configurations. As both were present during wartime (photos below), were they variant-dependent?

  3. These kits are almost always less than a tenner a,d so they should be! Second hand kits can change hand for much more than the reissues, which at least have decent transfers. This is the old airfix nugget reissued last year, which i picked up on Amazon for £8:99 inc post. Looking forward to it as it a type i have always liked, Cheers Greg
  4. With the Stuka near enough done, I can justify opening the box on this one. I got it from Scott's Models in Glasgow a couple of months ago. My wife likes the Storch and has been encouraging me to get this kit for a while, which is good because it's very expensive for such a little puddle jumper of a thing! On the strength of the RRP, I thought I'd show what's inside the box. As with numerous modern Tamiya ship kits tooled in the last decade or so, the kit includes some metal parts to improve the kit engineering. It comes with decals for 4 aircraft, and a set of masks for the glazings which are finely printed but need to be cut out. I also got this little set of photo etched details from White Ensign Models to enhance the Storch. The parts are pretty much entirely for within the cockpit and are beautifully etched. So far, all I've done tonight is to paint the parts for the aircooled Argus inverted V8 engine, and apply the decals to the block. Next (after that work thing) I'll assemble the engine, hang it in its mounts (which were cut from the sprues and sprayed RLM02 earlier) and satin coat it to seal in those decals and then give it all a nice wash to bring out the nicely moulded detail. The exhausts were painted a dark silver-grey earlier, and they'll get some abuse with rusty browns and a sponge before going on.

  6. Fieseler Fi 156 Storch in Finnish Service 1:72 SBS Model SBS Model are a producer of kits, aftermarket parts and decals from Budapest, Hungary. This sheet is the latest in a growing range of high quality decals, covering four different Storchs in Finnish service. The schemes on offer provide as much variety as it reasonably posibble, and it's particularly pleasing to see a post-war example on the sheet. The following aircraft are catered for: Fi 156 K-1 Storch, ST-113, Air Force HQ, Helsinki Malmi, August 1940. This aicraft is finished in overall RLM 02 Grau; Fi 156 K-1 Storch, ST-112, Air Force HQ, Helsinki Malmi, June 1950. This aircraft is finished in Olive Green over aluminium dope; Fi 156 K-1 Storch, ST-113, LeLv 14, Tiiksjarvi, December 1942. This aicraft is finished in Olive Green and Black over RLM 65 blue-grey; Fi 156 K-1 Storch, ST-112, Air Force HQ, Helsinki Malmi, June 1950. This aircraft is finished in overall Olive Green; Aside from being an interesting collection of schemes, the decals themselves look to be of very good quality. The printing is crisp and sharp, while colours are bold and solid. They look thin and glossy on the sheet, so they should perform well. Conclusion This interesting sheet has been nicely executed. If you have an Academy or Airfix Storch in your stash, then this sheet may well tempt you to build one or two aircraft of the Finnish Air Force with an interesting variation in markings. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  7. Fieseler Fi.156 A Detailed Guide to the Luftwaffe's Versatile Storch Valiant Wings Publishing The Storch was a lightweight short-takeoff and landing liaison aircraft that was also used for spotting on occasions. Around 3,000 airframes were produced by the Germans, and a number of countries build licensed examples before, during and after the war. A number even fell into Allied hands and were used by notable figures for quick and easy transport between locations, with the long suspension travel allowing it to land in quite rough fields. This book from Valiant by the prolific Richard A Frank is part of the Airframe Album series, being number 11, and follows the same format as its predecessors. The book contains a wealth of detailed pictures, profiles from Richard J Caruana, and isometric drawings by Chris Sandham-Bailey. To the rear is a section on modelling the Storch, with kits in 1:72 and 1:48 built by Libor Jekl and Steve A Evans. While the contemporary photos are in black and white, the preserved examples are photographed in full colour, and the detail in which they are depicted would be an absolute boon to any modeller, especially those wishing to go for ultimate realism. The book is broken down as follows: i. Introduction A brief narrative history of the development and operational use of the Storch by the Luftwaffe and other Axis nations, as well as captured and evaluated examples and post-war production 1. Technical Description Detailed coverage of construction and equipment. 2. Evolution – Prototype, Production and Projected Variants 3D isometrics illustrating differences between variants 3. Camouflage & Markings Colour side profiles, notes and photographs 4. Models 1:72 of the Smer Fi.156C-3 by Libor Jekl A conversion of the 1:72 Academy Fi.156C Storch to a K-65 by Libor Jekl 1:48 Tamiya Fi.156 by Steve A Evans Appendices Fiesler Fi.156 kit list Fiesler Fi.156 Accessory and Mask list Fiesler Fi.156 Decal list Bibliography Conclusion Whether you have the models that you intend to use this book for reference, or have an interest in the subject, this book will give you all the reference pictures and some besides. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  8. Made a weekend of driving down from Vancouver to Everett for Luftwaffe Day at Paine Field. Beautiful Friday evening over looking the water sipping beverages, Saturday the air show, Sunday Chain Lakes Loop at Mt. Baker. Overall a super enjoyable weekend. Three planes flew, Bf 109 E-3, Fw 190 A-5 and the Fieseler Fi 156 C-2 Storch. Very impressed with the short take off and landing of the Storch, another kit on the list..... As a car guy, listening to the inverted V and Radial engines was music to the ears. Such a difference between the two, loved it. Many planes and some armor on display, lots of historical data. A very professional, clean and courteous event to attend, highly recommend.Several vintage Porsches, Bmws and Vws were on display for the day too. Building two Bf 109s at the moment and picked up some nice detail. Of particular interest was the inner wheel well of the 109 which to my surprise (not sure why) was lined with an olive coloured canvas. All the planes are restored to pristine showroom condition through the Foundation's choice (not weathered). Part of the talk on the Fw was they all leaked oil straight from the factory. Sure enough, after the flight, nice clean oil leaking out of several locations, all over the gorgeous paint. Certainly would not score you well at the collector car show. Jacques Littlefield's Hetzer is now part of the Paul Allen collection. As a bonus it drove around a gravel field and fired the canon. Would upload some photos but don't know how, will work on that. Plan to attend next year's Battle of Britain event. Overall a great value and fun for $12.00 usd.
  9. Hello I am a armour modeller and never dabbling in wingy things but this week i was wacthing THE WANNSEE CONFERENCE about the meeting to decide the final solution . In the play which is well worth seeing R Heydrich flew in in a Fieseler Storch with swastikas on the upper wings not crosses Is this correct i thought the swastika was reserved for the tail ??
  10. This is my first ever GB, so I may not finish it in time , but I'll try my best.​ I'm going to try to do Gen. Richthofen's Storch if I can find out code letters, or Löhr's if not. This its for a planned Schwerer Gustav dio, with this landing/ taxying next to it, on an improvised strip. As you will see in the photos, I have done a bit of the cockpit, and a bit of fuselage painted, but it is otherwise unstarted (I hope this is ok). This'll probably be mostly OOB, pics will be up soon, by the weekend at the latest. Also, anyone with info on the markings of Wolfram Richthofen's Storch, that would be very useful, as the only in-flight pic I've found is this- You can just about make out the camo demarcation lines and the fuselage band (just fore of the leading edge of the tailplanes), but I cannot see any codes. Thanks in advance, Seabo14
  11. Looking for an easy build I took the SMER (re-boxed Heller) Storch out of the box... and then the fun started. One of my favourite aircraft, I had a search on BM and found this thread discussing the captured Storch used by Air Vice Marshal Harry Broadhurst and used to ferry Churchill around Europe. Had to be done, WiP thread here. Here's a link to on YouTube and some shots of the finished article.Primed with AK Interactive white, paint is decanted H24 rattle can airbrushed and hand brushed Mr Hobby Dark Brown and H30 Dark Green. Finished with W&N Matt varnish hand brushed. Transfers are Xtradecal, mostly. I hope you like it, comments welcomed! Untitled by Ced Bufton, on Flickr
  12. Hi all,Academy,s little Storch just finished.It was a cracking kit to build a bit fiddly and wing issues which needed fixing but it was cheap,fell into my interest in building some Luftwaffe types and I had never built one before! Hope you like and background story here http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234977389-academy-172-fiesler-storch/
  13. Hi Folks,here,s a rarity,a plane I,ve never modelled before! It,s the elderly Academy offering of this what I think was quite a modern looking aircraft for it,s time as far as light aircraft go.The kit is beautifully molded.and although it,s in the shiney smooth plastic Academy builders will be used to they have molded the fuselage with a rough texture to replicate what I can only guess it,s fabric covering.I thought I would add a few more details missing from the basic kit cockpit wise mainly on the sides which have no details at all,I,m referencing a 32 scale build from an old copy of SAMI.So here,s a start,hope you enjoy!

  15. Archive Allsorts Is a collection of all sorts of second world war aviation pictures as revealed here using a variety of Public Domain archival images. Fieseler Fi 156C-5 Storch Fieseler Fi 156C-5 Storch, W.Nr. 4487 of Aufklärungsstaffeln 1 (Heer)/Aufklärungsgruppe 32, 1.(H)/32 at Kemijärvi, Finland during 15 September 1941. Department of Aircraft Production Beaufort Mk VIII During World War II, from August of 1941 through to August of 1944 Australia’s Department of Aircraft Production (DAP) built 700 Bristol designed Beaufort general-reconnaissance/torpedo bombers. Production of the Beaufort with a workforce of 23,800 was a tremendous industrial achievement for Australia’s fledgling aviation industry. The DAP Beaufort which equipped seventeen operational squadrons, was the backbone of the Royal Australian Air Force’s (RAAF’s) offensive capabilities throughout the war in the South West Pacific. Shown on this page are several DAP Beaufort Mk VIII aircraft during assembly early in 1943 at Fisherman’s Bend, Victoria. Of the aircraft seen A9-271, A9-273, A9-275, A9-277 and A9-279 can be identified. All of these aircraft were delivered to 1 Aircraft Depot of the RAAF, with A9-271 arriving during 22 March 1943, followed by A9-273 plus A9-275 during 8 April 1943. A29-277 and A9-279 were subsequently delivered during19 April 1943. Wright R-1820-97 Cyclones for the Boeing B-17F-50-BO Flying Fortress Shown above as captured by Office of War Information Photographer Andreas Feininger in December of 1942, are various Wright R-1820-97 Cyclone engines prior to fitting on Boeing B-17F-50-BO Flying Fortress bomber aircraft during assembly at the Boeing Aircraft Plant, Seattle, Washington, United States of America. Lockheed P-38F Lightning Captured by Office of War Information (OWI) Photographer Russell Lee during May of 1942 a United States Army Air Force (USAAF) mechanic can be seen at work upon Lockheed P-38F Lightning 41-7511 at Lake Muroc, California, United States of America. Lend-Lease Fighters Photographed by OWI Photographer Nick Parrino, the Commander of the USAAF in the Middle East, Major General Lewis Hyde Brererton, poses with 4 Voyenno-Vozdushnye Sily (VVS) officers from the Soviet Union, at Abadan in Iran during March of 1943. They are seen standing in front of the Castle Bromwich Aircraft Factory (CBAF) built Vickers-Supermarine Spitfire FVB EP400, which was a British Lend-Lease aircraft, delivered to the VVS. Also seen behind the Spitfire shown above is Curtiss P-40K-10-CU Warhawk, 42-10107 and an unidentified Bell P-39 Airacobra, all like the Spitfire were delivered to the VVS through Lend-Lease arrangements. All of the above posted Public Domain images in this instance have been sourced from the following archives; SA-Kuva and the Library of Congress.
