  1. Placeholder for the moment. Here is the venerable but still good (i think) He 111 H 6 from Italieri. One of my childhood favorites as it had the "right" upper turret on it. There are three options in the box two of which are torpedo carrying KG 26 machines. I quite fancy the sand coloured one but we'll see. I;m possibly doing it wheels up too. I haven't built a 111 for a long time so i'm looking forward to it. Cheers Greg
  2. This is probably of the very earliest plastic kits of a Heinkel 111. To make it look a bit more like the aircraft I had to reduce the length of the canopy by 8mm. It was an awful lot of fun to build.
  3. I now have both the Revell (ex Hasegawa) and Airfix He111H-6. I plan to use the Airfix Decals and make one as a Torpedo Bomber and the other as the 'Desert camouflage' option, so I've got a few questions before I think about starting them. 1) Was there any external differences between a regular He111H-6 and the one in Desert camou? As I can't see any tropical filters or anything in the Airfix instructions. 2) The Airfix kits tells you to only use 1 big bomb but there's two racks - Did the Desert Camou one ever use two large bombs or just the one like Airfix says? 3) Defe
  4. Just a quick question - do all the boxes of Airfix's Motorhead He111 come with the original kit decals and painting/marking guide? I'd like to build the Tropical and Torpedo Bomber versions but obviously the regular boxing is very difficult to find. thanks Mike
  5. The He111 has a real challenging Cockpit! Here some pictures of my 1/72 Revell/Hasegawa Heinkel He 111 Bomber which crashed from 2 m height. The Cockpit broke in to parts - now repaired. Hope you like! Instead of masking the Cockpit (which is very difficult for me) I used painted decals. Look at TOPIC "forget masking cockpits" Cheers! Andreas
  6. At the start of the year I decided to build these two in a side by side build. As the colour schemes were the same I thought they would be a nice quick build. Wrong. I’ve thankfully managed to finish them in the last week during lockdown. Both kits are Airfix 1/72 scale and are now quite long in the tooth. The mouldings have raised panel lines and all the control surfaces are able to be moved, so if built straight out of the box looked quite toy like. Worst of all were the clear parts, hardly any indication as to where the framework goes, totally smooth and poorly fitting. I rescribe
  7. My next model is the Airfix 1/72 He 111. The version in the box is an H6 carrying an external torpedo and bomb, however, I'd like to represent something from the Battle of Britain so probably an H2 with the bomb bay doors open and with the older style prop and exhausts (more research needed on all of this!). I've got the Eduard interior set and I'm going for a scheme off the Xtradecal BoB sheet. So far progress has been getting the interior painted (photos below) and fiddly etch bits together (I'll try and get some photos of these this evening). All comments and suggestions warmly welcomed!
  8. Hello fellow modellers I bought this from a model shop in Melbourne. I thought it looked great and it reminded me of the movie "Dunkirk", which I am not sure if I liked the movie or not!!!!! I do like the white and black undersides of British planes at the time. Although I don't know why they used this scheme. Box art: I thought I would start the Spitfire as I have never built a Spitfire, it's about time I did. Spitfire parts: Have a look at the the free flash. I also got hold of this which I had the great idea of us
  9. Finally, after two years I finished this bad boy! Most of the time it was sitting on my shelf waiting for painting, unfortunately I just didn't have time to work on it. The He 111 is definitely my favourite Luftwaffe bomber, I just love it's shape of wings and the greenhouse cockpit. The kit is nicely detailed for the scale and goes together nicely. Unfortuantely you won't see any internal detail after the assembly but that's the issue with most bombers. There are fit issues with engine nacelles and the fuselage windows. Also the lack of bombs is quite unpleasant so I solved it with the bomb b
  10. My first large scale build since returning to the hobby after a 30 year lay off. I built this last year, haven't got any build pictures as I was just concentrating on getting the model built first, as I get more into model building I will start posting work in progress topics in the near future.
  11. Hello All, I have re-started an Airfix He 111, inspired by Gordon's build here. This has been an absolute SOD (shelf of doom, natch) since 2010. I started it as my third model after coming back to the hobby and shelved it as too ambitious. I have a bad travel schedule between now and the end of this build, so I am glad to see the KUTA group build following up behind! It's an early sixties Airfix kit, with some hi-tec cockpit detail: Comparing it with plans shows it's a bit narrow in the fuselage, so I had to fix that: And I wanted an H-1 so I inserted some windows from a polystyrene
  12. Hello All, Just finished my Minicraft 1/144 He-111. I chose the in-flight option, and added some crew. I modified the decals a bit to make my chosen scheme. It was a surprisingly different experience from building a 1/72 kit. Here we go: An in-flight pose demanded some crew. So we start with some twisted 15A fuse wire: Then we bulk them up with some artist's acrylic paint (choose your least-used colour!): Then paint them up! Thanks for looking, Adrian PS: Sorry - "new", "improved" photobucket seems to be storing my photos at 1024x768 now instead of 800x600.
  13. OK - I've been slacking on Connie, the Ju 52 and the Lightning stuff - but I have been busy with this: It's, erm, a bit large to photograph on a kitchen worktop! Hopefully paint at the weekend Iain
  14. Need to get some daylight shots - and she's a real *bu**er* to photograph as she's so large... Anyhoo - please forgive the colour casts - will post better images when I have them. Iain
