  1. Hi, This one will be part of my project to build at least one Spitfire representing each year from 1938 to 1945. I'll use the Eduard dual combo to build a model of a No19 Sqn Spitfire from the late summer of 1938. I'm going to deviate from Eduard's decal option (K9795). I'll build this as K9789, the very first one delivered to No 19 Sqn. Cheers, Stefan.
  2. Hi All, Here is my take on Eduard's lovely Bell Airacobra. This was the Profipack edition, so everything was pretty much OOB, with the exception of some Red Roo decals to complete the aircraft as an RAAF version. Here is the (rather truncated) WIP if anyone is interested: I chose to complete as A53-6, belonging to 82 Sqn RAAF, based at RAAF Bankstown, Sydney in August 1943. Prior to this build I was not even aware that the RAAF had flown Airacobras, so it was all a journey of discovery. Only 22 Airacobras made it into RAAF service at a time when they were desper
  3. In August 2020, Eduard is to release in August 2020 - just in time for the 80th Anniversary of the BoB - a new tool 1/48th Supermarine Spitfire Mk.I limited kit - ref. Source: https://www.eduard.com/out/media/InfoEduard/archive/2020/info-eduard-2020-01.pdf V.P.
  4. will I manage a second after the IDS? no idea, but with a slightly simpler set up it might work I hope I know by know how to tackle the Revell beast (or how to ignore the Revell instructions! maybe Eduard did better ones.. lets see!) The Eduard special edition "Good by Tornado F.3 ADV" will be used, meaning Eduard PE for Cockpit and details + Eduard Brassin seats and wheels + stencils I want to do a Falklands defender of 1435 flight and bought uprise-decals Falklands markings not sure which one yet! probably you could also do the one or oth
  5. Besides the K-4 in progress, my dad´s gonna start the next 109 project, doing Hartmann´s plane. DSC_0001 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0002 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  6. Hello everyone. It’s about time I kicked off my first build in the WIP section. All of my previous’ builds have been in the Group Builds section but I wanted to do something different. (Mainly because the aircraft I am building falls out of the Battle of Britain GB remit) I will be building this: Eduard’s brand new 1/48 Spitfire. I will not post any sprue shots as many of those have been put up recently. To put simply, the kit looks lovely in the box and after a dry fit of the fuselage halves it appears to fit exquisitely too. I will be utilising t
  7. This is Eduard sublime 48th scale Ltd Ed kit, enhanced with a resin gun bay and PE landing flaps. The figure is by Barracuda. Paints are MR.
  8. My entry will be as above; Phantom F-4J 155755 / NG207 of VF-92 Silver Kings whilst deployed aboard USS Constellation (as part of CVW-9) from January to October 1973. The other fighter squadron in this wing was VF-96 ("Fighting Falcons") with the well known call sign "Showtime" - both squadrons were also aboard the "Conny" on its previous tour to Vietnam (1/10/1971 to 1/7/1972) though in between those two deployments VF-92 changed to the more colourful yellow tailfin. To be built from the Hasegawa "Liberty Bell" boxing using Eduard cockpit etch, Eduard resin wheels and
  9. Hi, for this mto gb. I will be building two eduard bf 109 g's, a g-2 & a g-4. And the extra's The marking will be a g-2 of 2./jg2 Tunisia 1943 and a g-4 of365 squadrilia, 150 gruppo sicily 1943
  10. I'd just like to say that whoever was responsible for the choice of that horrible "Lord of the Rings"-style typeface on the box should be shot. Really. This is going to be yet another Special Duties Lysander. I'd like to build John Nesbitt-Dufort's all-black Lysander from 138 Sq., famously pranged in a French ditch (and then destroyed by a train) in January 1942. Tail number was T1508, squadron code would have been NF, but I don't know the aircraft letter, or how the plane might have been marked--photographs don't seem to cover the necessary parts of the fuselage. So there's a prob
  11. Hello, Here's another project of mine. 3 american aircrafts including 1 and a half under british management. Both are early Mustangs with différents armament and of course different wing. 1 MTO, 1 ETO and the last from CBI There's an Accurate min and 2 ICM, serioulsly they're almost identical. The first to be finished, I guess will be the MTO one a P-51A from an US Sqdn on loan to an brit squadron. The colours will be ... Let's say, unusual. One of my favourite game , you both should know the kind of remark "are you sure about the colours ???" I
  12. Guys, as my Duck has come to a rest due to some parts went into orkus, so I need something in between, until the parts will arrive. Or maybe more, as I'm afraid I've lost a bit of rhythm in the Duck build, due to some work issues and consequently long breaks, so maybe some pause from that will turn healthy. As for this I will return a bit more on my homeground of WWI biplanes, and now it's for some classics as well. And I plan not to do only one, but two fishnets at once. Here's what's on the bench, waiting for some paint and glue: It's the Sopwith 1½ Strut
  13. Lightning F.2A Detail Set (491092 for Airfix) 1:48 Eduard Airfix’s much-loved kit has been released more than a few times over the years, the most recently being a few years back under the current management, and even as a large starter set, allowing the prices on eBay to drop back to more reasonable levels. This set is a general upgrade to the airframe, including the cockpit and exterior, plus wheel bays. Two frets are included, one nickel plated and pre-painted, the other in bare brass. A complete set of new layered instrument panels a
  14. Happy Weekend folks, Hope everyone is keeping safe and well So here's a new WIP which I'm currently running alongside my build of the Airfix 1/72 Wellington A Wonderful Wimpy More progress on the Wimpy will follow as soon as possible. So I've had this kit in my stash for a while now - it's the Eduard Weekend Edition Polikarpov I-16 Type 24 - and decided it was about time to get it put together. Obviously it's not one of Eduard's ProfiPak versions with the added extras but it's still a nice little kit all the same. Obligatory box art shot:
  15. Finish no11 for 2020 is the second from the Eduard Grunherz boxing of the Fw190A5/8 this time as kit option A flown by Lt E Lang of 5./JG54 during the summer of 1943 in the Soviet Union. Lt Lang, a recipient of the Knight's Cross, who managed to shoot down 173 aircraft during 400 combat sorties until he was shot down by F/Lt Terry Spencer flying a Spitfire mkXII September 1944 over Belgium. Built OOB using the kit photo etch, painted with Mr Colour and Tamiya acylics with some MIG powders for exhaust staining. Not as happy with this one as the A8 finished earlier but its still come out OK. As
  16. @Stephen started his GB build thread for a Beaufighter VII using markings from a Blackbird Models sheet, Operation Overlord Pt:1. I noticed markings for a Lysander were also on that sheet. With Eduard's reboxing of the Gavia plastic in my stash, and a quick trip through the ether to Sprue Brothers to secure that decal sheet, I'm ready to begin! While I originally bought the kit for the 309 Squadron (Polish) markings shown on the box art, this GB is an even better topic. This kit is the Gavia plastic with new bits from Eduard, including the instructions and decals shown here.
  17. Now the Harrier's are complete the next kit out of the stash is Eduards Fw190 Grunherz dual boxing. Another of Eduard dual combo kits with sprues to build 2 complete aircraft, but it not... The box has 2 of what Eduard call small parts trees, all the common parts needed for all variants from A3 up to A8, there is an additional sprue for the F series which is mostly weapons. and 2 canopy trees, again cover all Fw190 variants A3 to F8 but has 4 main trees, one each of sprue C, G H and J. each one slightly different so you can build the Fw190 A5 light w
  18. VPAF MiG's, Part 3: MiG-21PFL 'Fishbed-D' (Eduard 1:72) MiG-21PFL 'Fishbed-D', '4127', pilot Dong Van Song, 921st FR, Noi Bai, 1966 Dong Van Song flew this plane often on the first part of 1966 - and two kills were confirmed by Noi Bai pilots with this airframe. On july 14th 1966 '4127' was shot down by F-4C (flown by Capt W J Swendner and 1Lt D A Buttell) using an Aim-9B missile. Pilot Ta Van Thanh was killed as the plane disintegrated over Hanoi, while he was chasing F-105s. The kit, new Eduard Profipack edition of the MiG-21PF. To my knowledge, di
  19. Here's a late finisher from the BoB GB. Unfortunately not my best build, but by rushing on the last day to meet the deadline I only pushed completion further and further back. At the time I was taking some meds for a chest infection that gave me shakes like I've never had before, so we were painting some cracking camouflage patterns - only I was trying to paint straight lines!!! Here she is, she didn't get the final weathering I'd planned, I may pick her up again in the coming months and give her some belly oil stains etc but it's not a job for today!
  20. 1/72 - MiG-21 Fishbed family project was finally officially confirmed by Eduard http://www.eduard.com/store/out/media/InfoEduard/archive/2015/info-eduard-2015-01CZ.pdf (english version soon) MF, bis and SMT versions expected first
  21. Dornier Do-17Z 8./KG76 (F1+FS) Heitsch crew made a forced landing near Castle Farm, Shoreham, England Battle of Britain 15th September 1940 after a low level chase by two Spitfires from No.609 Squadron, Flight Lieutenant Dundas and Pilot Officer Tobin. The tremendous air battle fought between Fighter Command and the Luftwaffe on 15th September 1940 represented the climax of the Battle of Britain, and it has been celebrated as Battle of Britain Day ever since. The 8/KG 76 Dornier 17Z piloted by Feldwebel Heitsch was part of a force of about 100 German bombers which approached London
  22. Just had a quick question. I have heard that Eduard's 1/48 Bf 110s have some fitting problems. Has anyone built this new limited edition kit? and if so does it still have the same fitting issues?
  23. Hallo My first was: This kit is from Eduard. It is absolute superior to Tamiya new Spitfire kit. Due to surface detail and logical design. The airscrew is significant, the first two blade airscrew which is a model! Not a stick full of sinkholes as it was from Airfix or analogic from Classic Airframe's Hurricane! The new TFace mask are just to recommend! Well, that is it. Happy modelling

  25. Hello there! After some time I would like to present you my next German project - little Junkers family (meant in 1/144 scale). I discovered the Junkers G.38 in an internet sale and I needed it immediately. I haven't met this machine before and it was somenthing new to me. Also I always wanted to try corrugated iron aircraft and this is the best option for me so far. Before I started the build of G.38 I also bought the Ju-52 (Eduard kit) in the same scale and the new idea was to do a dualbuild of these two corrugated iron designs. But at first, let's have some fun with
