  1. I last built one of these, from the old Italeri kit, about 18 months ago. However, I was inspired to build another one after reading Axel Urbanke's excellent article on Ta152 operations in a recent edition of 'Luftwaffe in Focus', which also throws some more light on the tactical numbers and colours used by the various staffeln and stabsschwarm that operated the Ta152 within JG 301. Anyway, this is 'red 2' of 10. staffel, III/JG 301, built from the Trimaster offering of this kit. Didn't seem to go together as well as the Italeri offering, but that might just be me. Painted mostly with a mixture of Vallejo and Mig acrylics. Hope you like it Edited to add a few more pics in different lighting. I really must sort out my photography skills (or lack of them)...
  2. Hi All; Here's the latest off the bench. I enjoyed this one very much indeed, and am quite pleased with how it turned out. As all of them are of course, this one has a couple of flaws too, but nothing I couldn't live with. Critique welcome, I tried a different approach with the paints which one of the pics amply illustrates... Craft paint and Windex, who'd have thought... Except the red underside, the model was airbrushed with these (Pine Green was a nice match for RLM82 but the RLM83 required a mix). Cheers; Mark.
  3. Almost 20 years ago I started my Trimaster FW 190D-9 after buying an Eagle cal set of decals. The kit had been in my stash for quite a few years and was the best available kit of this aircraft at the time, then Tamiya bought their kit out so I thought why not build them both and do a comparison. Well life got in the way and they both sat in a box awaiting undercarriage and propellers. Earlier this year I got them out and had to decide what to do with them, use them as paint mules, scrap or finish them. Despite a better kit being available (Eduard) I decided to finish them off, so I used Eduard seat belts, spiral masks and resin wheels and here they are. Finished in Extracolour enamel paints they are a bit of a time capsule, but still interesting. Thanks for looking.
  4. Hello, The one on the bench. If any question about the captions in french, let me know ! Have a good day !
  5. Hello folks, I have finally finished my Heinkel. This is the Trimaster kit with Aires resin cockpit and some bits from the Eduard etched set. The kit included some etched and whitemetal parts, e.g. cockpit details, hinges for the engine nacelles etc. I know there wasn't a real need for the resin 'pit but I bought it as a second hand (unstarted) job lot (Kit, Eduard etch, Aires cockpit and montex masks) at Sword and Lance last year, so decided to use this as a test bed as this is my first time using resin, and etched components, and also the first time i've tried weathering, and I'm quite pleased with the reuslts. The markings are all masked and painted, with the exception of the serial number on the tail, the crest on the side of the cockpit, and the 'no push' markings. The decals were a bit on the thick side and the carrier film stands out a bit, but overall not too bad. Anyway here it is, comments welcome... Thanks for taking the time to look. Al
  6. Hello Folks, As my A-10 is currently stalled whilst I work out how to resolve a few issues I thought I would start on another kit. Just to stop the dust from settling on my workbench of course! Its the Trimaster kit of the Heinkel He162A-2 in 1/48 with a resin pit by Aires, etch from Eduard and Montex masks. I bought this kit and the associated aftermarket as a 'job lot' at Sword and Lance in Darlington in 2014. And thought it would be a nice quick and easy build to keep me occupied. It was the box picture and the resin bits taped to the lid that caught my attention (the opportunity to add extra details to cockpit and engine!). The box was still sealed in it's cellophane. Anyway, here is the obligatory in box shot... 'Only three sprues included in the box? hmm that's not much for your money' thought I and then I decided to have a look inside the little blue 'packing' box on the right, and these fell out... Sorry about the poor photo I didn't realise it was part in shadow until too late. I'll include better shots later in the build. Etched detail parts for the cockpit and engine, and a set of PE hinges (to assemble!) for the cowlings. There's also white metal landing gear, ejector seat, and even a cast nose weight shaped to fit in the nose! The remainder are bits of brass rod, wire, tube etc, for the other details. I wonder why the original owner bought the resin pit and Eduard etch? Speaking of which, here's the aftermarket... And a better picture of the resin 'pit before cleanup. Well, these things don't build themselves, so better get started.... More to follow later Al (Edit to correct typo's)
