  1. Here with my Eduard 1/48 Fw 190A-3 Weekend. I thought it would be interesting to see how long it took to build totally OOB - the only additions being an etched harness from an old kit and an aerial wire. Well it took a couple of weeks so even when I try to be quick, I still can't build fast! Very much enjoyed this kit - very little to complain about at all. The only thing I didn't like was the decals which wouldn't respond to any of my softeners too well and I got a little silvering on the wing walk markings which I had to touch up afterwards. I've always liked the early short nosed 190's and
  2. Fw 190A-5 Light Fighter (7439) 1:72 Eduard Weekend Edition The Focke-Wulf Fw190 was designed by Kurt Tank in the late 1930s. His aim was to create a fighter that was not only fast and agile, but also reliable. It had a wide track undercarriage to improve ground handling and also utilised electric rather than hydraulic controls to reduce the risk of system loss in combat. The Fw190 also marked a departure from aircraft like the Bf109 and Spitfire as it combined a 14 cylinder radial engine with a development of the NACA cowling system. This choice was crucial as i
  3. P-400 Air A Cutie 1:48 Eduard Weekend Edition The P-39 was developed to meet a proposal in 1937 for a single engine high altitude interceptor having the tactical mission of interception and attack of hostile aircraft at high altitude. Specifications called for a level airspeed of 360mph at altitude, and a climb to 20,000 feet in under 6 minutes. Armament was to be heavy including a cannon, the engine was to be liquid cooled, and the aircraft was to feature a tricycle undercarriage. Bell had previously designed the YFM-1 Aracuda featuring a mid-fuselage mounted engine to free up space f
  4. Fokker D.VII OAW 1:48 Eduard Weekend The Fokker D.VII first appeared over the western front in the late spring/early summer of 1918, as the Great War was entering its final phase leading up to the November Armistice. Much has been written about it, but it was an outstanding fighter often awarded the accolade of being the finest such machine produced by any side in the conflict. It is also well known that it was the only aircraft specifically named by the allies in the Armistice agreement; such was its fearsome reputation as a killer. The Eduard Fokker D.VII has been around since 20
  5. Messerschmitt Bf 109G-4 (84149) 1:48 Eduard Weekend The Messerschmidt Bf 109 is one of the iconic aircraft of WWII. The G models arrived in 1942 and the G-4 was nearly identical to the G-2 but was fitted with a much improved VHF radio set. The R versions were also designed for reconnaissance some versions of the G-4 were fitted with underwing canon pods. Due to the increasing weight of the G models larger main wheels were fitted which resulted in the teardrop fairings on the upper wing surfaces. A larger tail wheel was also fitted and the retraction mechanism remo
  6. Aero L-29 Delfín (8464) 1:48 Eduard Weekend Edition Designed in Czechoslovakia in the 1960s, the Delfín was a two-seat military jet trainer used by the Warsaw Pact countries that is still in operation with some countries and in private hands today. It is simple in construction and cheap to operate, with a good safety record due to its pleasant handling characteristics, which endears it to the cost conscious and anyone wishing to stay alive. Over 3,600 were made, and due to their use by the Soviet Air Force, they were dubbed "Maya" under the NATO reporting coding. As well as flight
  7. Bf.109G-2 Weekend Edition (84148) 1:48 Eduard The G variant of the 109, colloquially known as the Gustav was one of the primary fighters available to the Luftwaffe during the closing years of WWII, and saw extensive active service, all the while being upgraded to combat the increasing Allied superiority in the air. Happily for the Allies, the supply of experienced pilots was fast running out, so as good as the upgrades were, they couldn't make an appreciable difference to the outcome. The G-2 differed from the initial G-1 insofar as it eschewed the pressurised co
  8. I started this around a year ago but for some reason just lost interest in it. So i'm hoping posting it on here will gee me up and get it finished. I've not got any in progress pics of the build but didn't encounter any problems with it, just plenty of dry fitting and taking your time is the trick with these kits. This is where i'd got to up till today. With careful work the wing root gun covers fit perfectly. National markings are sprayed on using Top Notch masks, codes and unit badge are from Owl. I wasn't veey happy with the fu
  9. Bf 109F-2 Weekend Update set & masks 1:48 Eduard for Eduard Kit These are designed for the Eduard Weekend kit. Update Set (FE893) This is one fret designed for thise who have the Weekend kit but want a little PE as well. There is a new two part main instrument panel, parts for the cockpit, a full set of seat belts, grills for the intake, and parts for the wing radiators. For the canopy there are extra parts and the stay. Undneath there is a new aerial and reinforcing stips for the tail.
  10. Messerschmitt Bf 109F-2 1:48 Eduard Weekend Edition The Messerschmidt Bf 109 is one of the iconic aircraft of WWII. The F-2 introduced the 15mm MG 151 cannon. This was supplemented by two MG 17 machine guns mounted under the engine cowl. As the better 20 mm Mauser MG 151/20 version become available, a number of F-2s were retrofitted with it in the field. About 1,380 F-2s were built between October 1940 and August 1941. The Kit We reviewed this is as a profipack boxing here. This weekend boxing has the same plastic, none fof the extras and only two
  11. Fw 190A-8 universal wings 1:72 Eduard WEEKEND Edition The Focke-Wulf Fw190 was designed by Kurt Tank in the late 1930s. His aim was to create a fighter that was not only fast and agile, but also reliable. It had a wide track undercarriage to improve ground handling and also utilised electric rather than hydraulic controls to reduce the risk of system loss in combat.

  12. Pfalz D.IIIa 1:48 Eduard WEEKEND Edition Before WWI the Pfalz company produced Morane-Saulnier aircraft under licence. In late 1916 they hired Rudolph Gehringer as their chief designer to work on an original fighter design. This would become the D.III and it emerged in April 1917. The new aircraft used a plywood monocogue fuselage with plywood strips being formed over a muold to form the fuselage.Once glued together the fuselage halves were covered with a layer of fabric which then doped. This gave great strength to the fuselage and was the same as used by Roland. The wing
  13. P-39K/N 1:48 Eduard Weekend Edition The P-39 was developed to meet a proposal in 1937 for a single engine high altitude interceptor having the tactical mission of interception and attack of hostile aircraft at high altitude. Specifications called for a level airspeed of 360mph at altitude, and a climb to 20,000 feet in under 6 minutes.

Bell had previously designed the YFM-1 Aracuda featuring a mid-fuselage mounted engine to free up space
  14. Spitfire Mk.VIII Weekend Edition 1:72 Eduard More than any other aircraft - at least on this side of the Atlantic - the Supermarine Spitfire has attained legendary status. The type's role in the Battle of Britain, combined with its enduring presense at air shows, have combined to ensure the Spitfire is the one combat aircraft pretty much everyone can identify. One of the ultimate Merlin powered variants was the Mk. VIII. The Mk. VIII was intended to be the next major production variant after the Spitfire Mk. V, but the Mk. IX, intended to be an interim d
  15. Hellcat Mk.I 1:48 Eduard Weekend Edition The Royal Navy received 252 F6F-3s as Hellcat I under Lend-Lease. Production continued until November 1945 by which time 7870 F6F-5s had been built, of which some 930 had been supplied to the Royal Navy as Hellcat II and 1434 of the total had been completed as F6F-5N night-fighters. Ultimately, the Hellcat equipped 14 FAA front-line squadrons. The first Hellcat Mark Is started to be delivered to the Fleet Air Arm on 13 March 1943, FN321 and FN323 arriving three months later, in June 1943 to the A and C Flights of A&AEE,
  16. Fw 190F-8 Weekend Photo Etch and Pre-cut Masks 1:72 Eduard Eduard's latest addition to their extensive range of radial-engined Fw 190s is the Weekend edition of the F8 fighter-bomber. Now they have released a set of photo etched details and pre-cut masks, so you can convert your Weekend kit into a Profipack with fewer decal options... Fw 190F-8 Photo Etched Parts The photo etched pack includes two small frets. The pre-painted set includes parts for the cockpit, including harnesses for the seat,
  17. Bf.109G-6 Mtt Regensburg 1:48 Eduard WEEKEND There must have been billions of words written on the Bf.109 over the years, which was the mainstay of the Luftwaffe's fighter arm, despite having been superseded by the Fw.190 and others during its service life. It kept coming back to prominence due partly to it being a trusted design, the manufacturer's sway with the RLM, and the type's ability to be adapted as technology advanced. The G or Gustav as it was known was one of the later variants, and probably one of the better ones, with improved armament that give it a distinctive pa
  18. Messerschmitt Bf 109F-4 1:48 Eduard WEEKEND The Messerschmidt Bf 109 is one of the iconic aircraft of WWII. The F-4 would use the 1332hp DB601E engine which would be fitted with a broader balded propeller for improved altitude performance. The aircraft would carry the new Mauser MG151 20mm cannon with 200 rounds per gun. Production of the F-4 would start in May 1941 and last a year with 1841 examples being built, 576 of these being the tropicalised version. The Kit Construction starts shockingly enough with the cockpit. Various control wheel
  19. FW190F-8 Weekend Edition 1:72 Eduard The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 was designed by Kurt Tank in the late 1930s. His aim was to create a fighter that was not only fast and agile, but also reliable. It had a wide track undercarriage to improve ground handling and also utilised electric rather than hydraulic controls to reduce the risk of system loss in combat. The Fw 190 also marked a departure from aircraft like the Bf109 and Spitfire as it combined a 14 cylinder radial engine with a development of the NACA cowling system. This choice was crucial as it meant that
  20. F6F-3 Weekend Edition 1:72 Eduard The Grumman F6F Hellcat was a highly effective fighter, the design of which took advantage of experience gained in aerial combat against the Japanese during the early part of the war. Fitted with a powerful Pratt and Whitney ‘Double Wasp’ engine, the Hellcat was a fast fighter, capable of 380mph. The F6F-3 was the first production version and was armed with six .50 inch Browning machine guns. Later in the production run it gained the ability to carry unguided rockets and bombs as well. The Hellcat was a rugged aircraft w
  21. Fokker DR.1 Weekend Edition 1:72 Eduard One of the best known and most recognisable aircraft of the First World War, the Fokker Dr.I was developed in response to the appearance of the Sopwith Triplane over the skies of the Western Front in early 1917. Although it couldn’t match other fighters for speed, either in a straight line or in a dive, its initial rate of climb was good and it was supremely manoeuvrable. The Fokker was used by a number of aces, most notably Manfred von Richthofen who scored his final 20 victories in the type until he was shot down and
  22. F6F-5N Nightfighter (84133) 1:48 Eduard Weekend Edition With the success of the F6F-3 already in service, the F6F-5 was the natural evolution based on combat experience. Key improvements in the F6F-5 were a more powerful engine utilising a water injection system, revised windscreen that had a single armoured windscreen and spring loaded aileron tabs. The night fighter version came into service in the fall of 1944 was designated the F6F-5N and this was easily identified by the wing mounted AN/APS-6 Radar protruding forwards from the starboard leading edge, and the 20mm
  23. From a year and a half ago or so... Weekend edition with SBS Resin seat and vanes (plastic-card) on pitot added. Finished in airbrushed tamiya acrylics, details in Vallejo and weathered with oils. Going to be sold on that auction site so I thought I'd share it with you guys.
  24. From a year and a half ago or so. Weekend e-3 kit (priller jg51 one) with superfabric belts added. AM decals. Quite a bit of work along the spine (top and bottom) to restore the rivets as they were very shallow. Also oil cooler/chin had a bad seam but think that was my fault getting the engine block in wrong and throwing things out of alignment. Primed in mr surfacer and sprayed in 02/71 over 65 with xtracrylics, masked with tamiya tape for the hard edge. 70 prop and spinner. Oil washes and some postshading for weathering. Their satin varnish at the end.
  25. Yakovlev Yak-3 1:48 Eduard Weekend Edition The YAK-3 had a slightly stop start entry into Russian service. Its origins can be traced back to a 1941 design the I-30. Like the original Yak-1 it was to feature a 20mm cannon firing through the propeller hub and two wing mounted machine guns. The armament was improved by the addition of a pair of wing mounted cannons. The first Yak-3 had a metal wing with slats, and the second a wooden wing to simplify production. The German invasion, and a shortage of aircraft grade alloys lead to the projects cancellation. Jump then to 1943 and Yakolev look
