  1. The is a place setter for more pictures etc. to follow. Classic Luft 46 subject, legendary Unicraft quality of parts and fit. I'll post a picture of the parts later on I just need a stiff drink to steady my nerves first Good luck everyone. cheers Pat
  2. The secret to the successful completion of any Blitzbuild is preparation, simplicity of kit assembly, and attention to detail. So it was only natural that Unicraft immediately came to mind. Picture below, along with the history of an aircraft I doubt many of you will have heard of, Info below from Unicraft History In early 1943 when not only there were no captured examples of jet engines and aircraft, but even there was no information at all about German and British turbojet-powered aircraft in the Soviet Union, the designer M.I.
  3. You would think that after punishing myself building the Unicraft Bird of Prey I would stay away from their kits, but when it is the only game in town what can you do. I have always thought that any kit is build able but this one is stretching my conviction. Anyway as much to test out migrating to Village.Photos from Photobucket, here are some pictures; I am not sure that these pictures fully show the crudeness of the parts. Anyway we will see how far I get.
  4. This kit was built during the "Blitzbuild Group Build" here on BM recently, for those unfamiliar this is where an attempt is made to start and finish a kit over the bank holiday weekend either in two 12 hour sessions or in one mammoth 24 hour session. With photos with time and date proof to show you are playing fairly. I chose to try to build the Unicraft Messerschmitt "Schwalbe" Luft 46 Resin Kit, which being the first resin kit I have ever built, was perhaps not the wisest idea I've ever had. However due to all the support and encouragement from other Modellers here on BM, it wa
  5. Ok here we go, I can't put this off any longer ! Some pictures before I started to extract the parts from the Resin puddle, the final one showing my start time. This kit is displaying all the typical Unicraft traits, i.e. Fuselage is banana shaped, wings look different sizes and you are left to decide where the parts go, as there are no real instructions or alignment points for the parts, however this may be the way things are done with Resin, I wouldn't know ! Right here we go with parts cut out and sanded a bit, but managed to mi
  6. This is my Unicraft YO-3a, affectionally know by its crews as the Yoyo. The work in progress thread can be found at; The YO-3a was a low altitude silent stealth aircraft designed to observe enemy troops at night without making an audible ground level sound. For more information see: http://www.yo-3a.com/ and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_YO-3 You can see the build thread for my trials and tribulations, but this is what I had to start with; Given that I am kind of proud about how it turned out, K'velen in fact.
  7. This is my Unicraft Boeing Bird of Prey. The build thread for this can be found at Just to restate; The Bird of Prey, (named that because someone thought it resemble the Star Trek Klingon Bird of Prey, there is some documentation that it was designated YF-118G)was a late '90 secret stealth technology demonstrator which first flew in 1996 and after 40 flights was retired in 1999. Due to its secret nature it was not publicly revealed until October 2002. For more details see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_Bird_of_Prey. Also to restate; I am sure I have built worse kits the
  8. Ok I’m the first to admit I am totally mad and this build will prove it! My work pattern has changed so I will have more time for models!!! So rather than signing up for more GB’s…or actually completing the ones I’ve signed up for on time I decided I needed a new long-term project. The Heinkel He-177Z was a long term project which I loved so instead of building the bigger one I have gone for this project which I had mentioned a few times. I love the look and it’s super cool, plus a nightfighter as well! I had received all the bits sometime ago but after a quick look at them I got very sc
  9. Sorry for the late arrival to this GB. All the normal excuses, work, kids etc.... The background to this aircraft is that in 1941, following early experimental jet aircraft from Heinkel, which showed the limitations of the propeller powered aircraft that were at that time being built by Messerschmitt. Dr Willy decided he too would build aircraft with jet propulsion. His first attempt was the Me163, this had some plus points, "bleeding Nora that's fast!" And some less positive point BOOM ! during refuelling if you get it even slightly wrong putting both liquids in. What you want it to have
