  1. Good evening Today I started my 3rd build for this GB the Tamiya P51D Mustang I will try to represent Margareth IV the aircraft flown by Major James Buckley TAPP CO of the 78 Fighter Squadron 15 Fighter Group based at in the summer of 1945 ..

  2. HI all This is my next project. The kit is the Tamiya Bf109E-3. My intention is to make one of the decal options for the aircraft flown by Obfw. Jakob Arnoldy during the Battle of Britain. He was attached to 4./JG77 based on Mandal in 1940. During that time he was flying the "Weisse 5"which was a Bf109E-3 WNr.1276. The painting scheme is RLM71, RLM02 over RLM65 which was characteristic of the period. Bf109E-3 "Weisse 5" Wnr. 1276, Obfw Jakob Arnoldy, Mandal September 1940 Here is a shot of his another "White 5" being also the E-3 type. It seems to be the ki
  3. My first ever attempt at a conversion: Ernst Udet's Bf109V14 racer from Dubendorf. WIP here. Used the lovely Tamiya 1/72 109E-3 kit, an absolute joy to build with everything fitting perfectly, even after I hacked away at large chunks of it! Mr Hobby paint used and all markings (apart from the swastika and stencils) are masked using custom masks from a Cricut Explore Air. No real issues, the intake needs to be longer and the exhaust slots more spaced out. Probably missing a few intakes etc but very pleased with this. There is a certain satisfaction from making something that doesn't
  4. I’m on 109 roll: After my relative success with the 109E & 109F, I thought I’d try a little light conversion. It’s the wine red (or blue) 109V14 that Udet flew in Dubendorf and managed to prang. It’s a relatively easy conversion, but its actually BF109B airframe apparently so some details like fuel fillers need to relocated and obviously de-arming the thing completely.The Tamiya 109E is the starting point and I built up a stock of these on my travels to Japan a few years ,back at knock down prices so won’t complain about the costs or apparently the shortness of the

  7. I always loved the Mosquito ever since seeing the film '633 Squadron' as a youngster. Oddly I don't think I've ever made a model of one - so this will be a first. For this project I will be making Tamiya's 1/72 FB Mk.VI as MM417, EG-T from No. 487 Squadron RNZAF, based at Hunsdon, Hertfordshire in February/March 1944. © IWM (CH 12415) © IWM (CH 12412) The above photos are available to be shared and re-used under the terms of the Imperial War Museum's Non Commercial Licence.

  8. Time to start building something again, maybe even finishing it this time This is a double first for me; first Mosquito and first RAF plane in DG/OG/MSG livery! Since the PRU and PFF options have already been taken and finished in this same GB, I´ll go for the 105 Sqn DZ367/GB-J that was destroyed with its crew during a heroic daytime bombrun to Berlin. See here for further information. It looks to me that the port side front fuselage side window is painted over? The kit is just beautiful, and beautifully engineered too; the way the rear and front fuselage pieces just snap togethe

  20. Another Tamiya kit and it's pretty good. From start to finish it took me about a week. This aircraft was flown by Karl Hier in 1/JG 76 and fell into French hands on November 22 1939. It was given to the RAF in May 1940 and ended up being flown by 1426 Enemy Aircraft Flight at its establishment. Sent to Wright Field in the USA, it crashed on November 3rd 1942. All the decals were from my spares box.
  21. Evening all, I meant to post this on Thursday, which would have been the 72nd anniversary of this particular machine crash landing back in France after combat over the south coast of England. The kit is the fantastic Tamiya 109E3, with Eduard canopy masks and Xtradecal decals from their 70th anniversary BoB sheet. It is a machine of JG52, flown by Uffz Karl Wollf. It would be interesting to know if there is any way of finding out which unit he might have tangled with; I am well into making up my own 'dogfight doubles' at the moment! Next up: Eric Lock's 41 sqn Spitfire and Gunther Bode's 109
