  1. This is my entry to the group build. I tried and failed with another group build in the past so hopefully this time it will go better I'll be able to finish. The one I am going for is the Manx Air Races one to comply with the theme of the group build. Looks like this plane won the race in 1937. Apparently this is the B variant according to the instructions and this is what Wikipedia says about this variant. "Bf 108B Revised version, built from late 1935. The prototype had a Siemens-Halske Sh 14A radial, but production machines used the 240 PS (237 hp, 177 kW) Argus As 10C or the 270 PS (266 hp, 199 kW) Argus As 10E. A quadrant-shaped rather than rectangular rear window, tailwheel replacing skid, revision of shape of empennnage and removal of tailplane upper bracing." This is the weekend edition with no extras so hopefully will be an easy build. The whole idea really is finishing the build as I have not finished a model for years now. ūüėÖ
  2. Messerschmitt Bf 108 Brass Undercarriage Set 1:72 AeroCraft Models for Eduard Kit It was good to see Eduard bought and completed the 1/32 Bf 108 project from "Striped Fighter". The kit as it arrives looks great, however the undercarriage is scale thickness and does look thin. Ali has recast this into brass which should help support the model for as long as is needed. While some cleaning up of the brass parts might be needed these look virtually ready to fit as is, with just the stubs on the axles to remove. I would recommend these as a buy if you have the kit.

  3. Been away for awhile, very busy the last month or so. Picked up the rather nice Eduard 1/48 Bf 108 which I would like to finish in RAF colours. I would like to build it as DK280 (see http://www.coltonhistorysociety.org.uk/wiki/index.php?title=WWII_Plane_Crash_in_Colton_July_1944) which from my browsing around on the internet appears to be dark green and dark earth camouflage on top, yellow undersides. I think I can source the main markings from my spares, the question is what roundels to use? From the photos I have found it looks like Type A under the wings, Type A.1 on the fuselage. What about the top of the wings - would they be Type B? Thanks in advance!
  4. Hi there, My next project will be a wrecked bf 108 in 1/48 scale. The originally one is owned by Jacques Str√ľbi, a french collector in the 1980's. I'm lucky, because I contacted with him last year and sent me more photos about the plane. He had to sell it in 1983 to a person in K√∂nigswinter. We don't know too much about the future of this plane. So here it a picture about a plane: (copyrighted by Jacques Str√ľbi) As you can see, It's not even a plane, so there will be some massacre before the building. I was thinking about to buy the detail set of the CMK, but does it neccesary? No, it's not! A lot of part of it will be not used! And the rest of it? I hope i can scratchbuild it! First of all, I have to mark where i will cut the kit apart: (Sorry for the bad quality photos, made by phone) So that's all for now guys. And when will I post again? I don't know! Now we are moving with my wife from my homecity and things are little bit caothic around us. Cheers, Matyi
  5. Messerschmitt Bf 108 Taifun 1:48 Eduard ProfiPACK The Taifun was designed to fulfil a requirement for a four seat sports & recreation aircraft for a competition in 1934 called the 4th Challenge International de Tourisme in Warsaw. The four challenges between 1929 and 1934 were major events in pre war Europe. The M37 as it was known at the time did not win but it had good handling, a good landing and take off performance; and extremely low fuel consumption. The later would mark the aircraft out as a popular choice for record breaking attempts. The aircraft would go on to set endurance records. The Taifun (German for Typhoon) name was given to the aircraft by Elly Beinhorn a well known pilot. She named her own aircraft this and the name stuck. The newly forming Luftwaffe would take the aircraft on as a personal aircraft, and liaison aircraft. Soon after the start of the War production moved to France. After WWII SNCAN would continue to produce the aircraft as the Nord 1000 Pingouin. Once stocks of the original German Argus engines were exhausted a Renault 6Q11 engine was used. The French Air Force would go on to use the aircraft in much the same roles as the Luftwaffe did. The Kit The Bf 108 was first released by Eduard back in 2002, and has been periodically re-released since this. This latest boxing is a ProfiPack one featuring 5 decal options, a sheet of photo etch parts, and masks. The moulds seem to have held up fairly well, though there is a hint of flash creeping onto the smaller parts. There are two main sprues for the aircraft, and a slightly smaller sprue for all the small parts. Construction starts conventionally with the cockpit. The modeller first faces a choice of whether to build a standard four seat configuration, or three seats with an extended range fuel tank. The seats are added to the cockpit floor along with the rudder pedals and control columns. PE seat belts are provided for all seats in the cabin. Additional PE parts are provided for the cockpit side walls which are then attached to the main cockpit. The rear bulkhead is then attached, which incorporates the rear seat cushion. Next up the kit supplies a complete engine. Slightly strange as the instructions make no mention of opening up the engine panels, but the option is there. The main engine block is put together and then the eight individual cylinders are added. Intake parts are added along with other parts for the engine. Bearers then hold the engine onto the firewall. Once the engine and cockpit are completed they can be added into the main fuselage which is closed up. The instrument panel and coaming are assembled and added. The kit supplies a new PE panel along with all of the associated control levers. Once the main fuselage is closed the tailplanes and rudder are added. Next up is the main wings. These are of conventional one part lower and left/right uppers. Once the main airframe is complete the undercarriage is made up and added. The wheels are conventional left and right construction and they are added to the single part legs. Masks are supplied in this kit for the wheels. PE brake lines are added along with the gear doors. The single part tail wheel is added. PE hinges are added for the control surfaces and pitot tubes are added. The engine front along with the propeller and hub are then added. The last part to be added is the single part canopy. The canopy is clear and free from defects. As this is the profipack boxing a full set of canopy mask is provided. Decals The decal sheet provides 5 sets of markings for the diverse users of the aircraft. KG+EM Sonderkommando Blaich, Lybya 1942. WL+IQBR, non standard RLM24/RLM65 scheme, France 1940. WL+IAWI, German pre-war camo, Germany 1939. BK+ZS, RLM74/75/76 Fighter Scheme, Hungary 1942-44. NF+MS Winter camo applied over normal scheme, Eastern Front 1942-43. Conclusion This is still a great kit from Eduard. This boxing includes the PE and mask extras as well as some great decal options. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
