  1. Hey All, First Post to the Forum. In my introduction post I wrote I will be completing the many unfinished projects I have shelved. This Hasegawa Ju-87G was first started in 2012 after bringing it home on a trip to Japan. Only addition to the kit was montex masks and Quickboost resin exhausts. In the first photo the inner control surface is not glued in yet. Thanks for looking, Brett.
  2. This build is going to be quite elaborate and involve 12 kits in total. In addition to the kits, I will be utilizing a plethora of diorama medium / accessories. The Fw 190 A-7 will be opened up and in disrepair. It will be nested under a makeshift Luftwaffe canopy with a group of mechanics, tools, and parts including a new engine in a wooden crate. Makeshift Luftwaffe canopy: I plan on going with the scheme flown by Rolf Hermichen. Rotenburg, Germany. March 1944 for the A-7. I love how light in color it is. Should hopefully show tons of details with the right weathering techniques. As you can see, I have opted for a plethora of after market parts for the A-7: The Fw 190 D-9 will be in complete functioning order. It will be situated in front of the repair area on a dirt airstrip. Luftwaffe dirt/grass airstrip: I plan on going with the D-9 flown by Gunter Syed. Uetersen, Germany. May 1945 The schemes I chose are primarily on uniqueness. Majority of Fw190 that I see are pretty dark in color, and I thought it would be fun to do a few lighter ones. All kits pictured are 1/48 and listed below: •Eduard Fw 190 A-7 Kit •Eduard Brassin Fw 190A-7 Engine and Guns •Eduard Brassin Fw 190A landing flaps •Eduard Brassin Fw 190A Wingroot Gun Bays •Eduard Look Fw 190 A-7 •Eduard Fw 190 D-9 Kit •Eduard Brassin Fw 190 A-4 engine •Tamiya Kubelwagen Type 82 •Tamiya German aircraft power supply unit & Kettenkraftrad •Tamiya German tank crew & field maintenance set •Tamiya brick wall, sandbag, & barricade set •ICM Luftwaffe ground personnel •ICM Luftwaffe pilots & ground personnel •MiniArt German fuel drums •MiniArt German Jerry cans •MiniArt Field workshop •MiniArt Wooden barrels This build will likely take me 2 months or so from start to finish. I plan on doing two 12”x12” diorama squares that will come together seamlessly for photos, but still function fine on their own. My display shelf restricts me to the size I have decided to go with.
  3. Hi guys! I plan (if everything goes smoothly) on getting Tamiya's He 219A-7. Box schemes are fairly dull, black over light blue or the latter colour covering the entire aircraft. Since the He 219, for me, borders Luft 46, I would like to get some inspiration for a whiffer camouflage. I was thinking on RLM 02 on the lower surfaces, making the aircraft some sort of prototype, with the top sides painted in the regular splinter pattern of RLM 74 and 75 the Bf 110 have. Another idea was of a splinter of RLM 81 and 82 over 76. I also though on painting the wings in a combination of RLM 76 with 75 and, last but not list, a camou of RLM 77 and 81. However, if any of you have a website where I can input the airframe and colours so I can make my own mixes, I'd be very grateful. Thanks!
  4. Yes I know JV44 Protection Flight (Platzschutszstaffel) has been done to death BUT not by me!!! I commenced this project in late 2022 but due to illness and a spell in hospital-yeuk! I had a break from kit-bashing and shelved this project. Then late last year I re-discovered the project, blew the dust off it and decided to complete it. Enough of the project history and on with the details:- Items used:- 1 x Eduard JV44 combo 1/48 Fw190D-9 + Fw190D-11 1 x Eduard 1/48 Fw190D-9 'Profipack' 1 x Eduard 1/48 Fw190D-9 'Weekend' 1 x Eduard 1/48 Fw190D-11 5 x AML 1/48 resin replacement tails 5 x Quickboost Fw190 Gun Covers 5 x Kits World 3D Instrument Decals - not recommended they did not fit well even though stated for the Eduard kit. 1 x EagleCal JV44 Decal sheet Eagle Files 1 ' Doras of the Galland Circus' plus as much reference material I could gather. The Eduard kit is not the easiest of kits to build but is probably the most accurate, except for the inaccurate too thick tail. Eduard should have taken the opportunity for a new tool D when they did the A - but still!! The build was a bit of a trial, I added what detail I could and eventually got to the painting stage. I used the EagleFiles book as the main reference for colour schemes and markings. AK Real Colours were used for painting. A couple of notes on the final result, I chose to show the undersurface white stripes a little ragged as they were probably hand painted. The stripes under the rear fuselage I chose to omit due to the fact they can't be seen on any photos, even though the photos aren't too clear. Also it would have been a bit of a pain for the ground crew to paint them???? Even though Red 4 & 13 were shown to be finished RLM 75/81, I found a reference by Jerry Crandell ( I think on Hyperscale) that all these machines were in fact RLM81 variations/ 82 which is how I decided to finish them. I also decided to build all five of the protection flight after finding a photo of Red 2 an Fw190D-11 on the internet. Not some of the best kits I've completed, some of this build was done whilst I was unwell so you will probably see some errors in my work!! It's certainly not a project I would repeat, I'll stick to two builds a time in future, Thanks for looking Andy
  5. This is a straightforward OOB build of the LF Models 1/48 Heinkel He112 kit with the 3D printed detail set. One thing I found necessary was to re-scribe the panel lines as to my mind those in the kit are rather soft, my personal choice and not a criticism of the kit. Cockpit is rather sparse so added some detail to it, not that much can be seen when built. Instrument panel is just raised detail so used Airscale instruments decal to give a better representation. The detail set provided hollow exhausts and guns, oleo links and improved tailwheel leg. Three options are given with the kit. I chose to build the V-9, prototype for the B series machines, On checking in Michael Ullman's Luftwaffe Colours it appears this machine was painted in LV40/52 a light grey used pre-war by the Luftwaffe. I found a reasonably close match to the colour swatch, in the previously mentioned reference, in the Vallejo paint range. The decals turned out to have a complete coat of matt varnish over them and required cutting out individually. I was a little uneasy about using them but they went on well, to the Kleer topcoat. With another coat of Kleer they looked fine, I left the Kleer as the topcoat as photos of the machine show it to be in a gloss finish. The machine is represented as the Heinkel He112V-9 photographed at Rostock, July 1937. Cheers Andy
  6. This is the MikroMir 1/48 Junkers W.34hi built pretty much OOB but with the addition of the Metallic Details engine and details sets 3D printed. The kit is well detailed, corrugations are really well done. I didn't bother detailing the interior due to lack of references and the fact you wouldn't see anything anyway! Cockpit detail is minimal, although a 3D decal instrument panel is supplied. Canopy I wasn't too impressed with being a four piece assembly, I ended up slightly fogging part of it MikroMir do actually supply two sets of transparencies which unfortunately didn't help me!! Also supplied is a small sheet of photoetch details and sheet of masks (not all of which fit very well especially the fuselage windows). My biggest problem with this build were the decals, I should really have tried to paint the markings usual problem corrugations and decals!! Despite the use of plenty of decal softener the results were not satisfactory . I finished the option in the kit of a W34hi of FFS(C)16 in 1938, finish was overall RLM63 ( Real Colours).:- Cheers Andy
  7. https://www.zvab.com/buch-suchen/titel/fliegergeschichten/autor/supf/ Does anyone know that? Came acros in a bookstore of a sale of these books. Quite interesting easy to read! Recomended! Happy modelling
  8. Hallo I want to ask if anybody has some pictures of FW-190 aircraft used in Sturmstaffeln. I am going to build next year many of them. In all I have 2 A-6 kits and 4 A-8 kits. 5 kits from Eduard, one from Hasegawa. The decals will be from Eagle Calls. Code letters from Fantasy Printshop. Aftermarket products I do have a lot. 2 boxes! However, some basic questions for this build are solved. One was concerning the gear. This question is solved. Anyone who has interest, please read it: Most questions are solved by the book. My real concern is the fuselage section of the MG 131 which were removed due to additional armor. So, any sketch or photo of the cleaned up area rear of the engine is welcomed. Also detail shots of the additional armor. Or MK 108 installation on the outer wing. Happy modelling
  9. Hallo After reading literature about P-38 and P-47 one question results: If you have a fuselage installed gun, which shoots through the propeller arc. How much does the synchronisation reduce the amount of shots? Take German MG of the late or early 109s or 190s. In percrntage, how much was the reductipn in firepower shopting through the arc, in opposition to a wing mounted gun which could fire full? Since there is a reduction, you stay a longer time in the opponents line of fire! Happy modelling
  10. Halllo My question concerning carpurator: As far as I am informed, the carpurator of the Zero was the only one, which was operative in all positions of the flying envelope. Is this correct? I know something about the German injection system too. The RAF had to handle it with limitations of the FE. How about American systems? Copy or own developement? But the question still alive is the lubrication system on the Zero overalm the FE! Can you have proper answers to this question? Happy modelling
  11. Alpha Jet A ‘Bundesluftwaffe’ (KPM0266) 1:72 Kovozávody Prostějov At the end of the 60s, with the SEPECAT Jaguar transformed from a trainer into an attack aircraft, it left the advanced jet trainer replacement unfulfilled, so France and Germany began a collaboration to design a new trainer that was to become the Dassault/Dornier Alpha Jet, the Breguet part in the collaboration being absorbed by Dassault when they bought the company. It flew late in 1973, and went into service with France in 1979 after extensive trials as the Alpha Jet E, fulfilling a similar role to the BAe Hawk in the RAF. The Germans used the jet as a Light Attack aircraft with the A suffix appended, and limited export success brought the Alpha Jet to Francophile countries in Europe and Africa, with a number of ex-Luftwaffe aircraft finding their way to Thailand and Portugal. One of Britain's defence company QinetiQ bought 6 ex-Luftwaffe aircraft, which occasionally make appearances at airshows. Germany has retired the aircraft now, but many airframes are still in service, with the later MS2 with new avionics, engines, a glass cockpit and improved weapons carrying performance used to train pilots on modern types. The Kit Originally released in 2021, there have been a number of reboxings of the core kit, with various markings options and parts to address the needs and wants of us modellers, which is their stock-in-trade. This boxing offers you the ability to model the A, E or more advanced MS using the parts in the box, but the decals supplied are purely for the A, as stated on the box, opening the door for anyone with aftermarket decals for the other types to use this boxing to apply their own decals. Good to know. The kit arrives in a figure-type end-opening box, with two sprues in grey styrene, a clear sprue, decal sheet and instruction booklet. The rear of the box has all the profiles for the marking options printed on it in colour. Construction begins with the cockpit, which revolves around the two-seat tub, with the two seats having belt decals, a pair of control columns, additional console parts, and decals for the side consoles. The two instrument panels also have decals, with a choice of decals, depending on which mark you are depicting. The cockpit and rear coaming are inserted into the fuselage along with the nose-gear bay, and in anticipation of adding the underside insert, the main gear bays are built on a single roof part with bulkheads separating them and outfitted with landing gear struts and wheels, then glued into the inside of the insert, which can be fitted into the fuselage, closing up the underside. The wings are simple structures with two main parts each, the undersides smaller than the uppers, to make for a slimmer trailing edge, and attaching to the fuselage by the usual slot-and-tab method, as are the elevators, with a pair of blade antennae fixed near the top of the tail fin. The intakes are also installed at this stage, which each have an inner splitter plate with a C-profile intake trunk joined together and offered up to the fuselage either side of the rear pilot’s cockpit. The mark of your model is determined by the instrument decals within the cockpits and the nose cones, which you have a choice of for all three types of this aircraft. The decals are for the A, which has a pointed nose and pitot probe, and required the removal of a strake on each side of the nose, which is shown in the diagram. The E has a rounded nose, while the MS has an angled flat tip. A busy diagram shows the installation of the nose gear and all the remaining bay doors, the former being made from three parts with an additional retraction strut added as it is inserted into the bay. Four underwing pylons are included in the kit, which can be left empty or have two extra fuel tanks slung under them, with the option of a central gun pack under the belly. The forward sections of the flap fairings are moulded into the wings, but the aft sections are added from separate parts on the moulded-in flying surfaces. The sensor fit differs between options, with extra steps showing those for French, Canadian and QinetiQ, then the one-piece canopy is glued in place with a small intake on the side of the spine, after which it’s time to paint your model. Markings A separate sheet shows the location of all the stencils, of which there are quite a few, then you refer to the rear of the box for your main markings options. From the box you can build one of the following: Decals are printed without acknowledgment, and have good registration, sharpness and colour density, with a thin gloss carrier film cut close to the printed areas. The upper wing stencils are printed on a single decal per wing, so care will be needed to ensure it doesn’t break up, and here the thin carrier film will be a boon once applied, but tricky during fitting. Conclusion I’ve always liked the Alpha Jet, and this is a great little model with lots of detail moulded-in, and some nice decal markings for in service German Jets. Highly recommended.

  12. One of the things one can say about the Luftwaffe during WW2 is the sheer amount of projects, prototypes and machines that did achieve frontline service. The Focke Wulf Ta 154 is not one of them. Originally designed by Kurt Tank at Focke Wulf as a plane to counter the legendary RAF Mosquito, its first flight was on July 1st 1943. The plane was also to be built using wood, with a especial glue, Tegofilm, used to hold all the wooden parts together. However, as luck would have it, the RAF bombed the factory that manufactured the Tegofilm in Wuppertal, putting the factory out of comission. A replacement glue was used, but it disolved the wood, and that caused accidents. After the accidents, Tank ordered to halt the project, being accused by Göring of sabotage. Lots of to and fro was done and, in the end, the project was cancelled. I bought this kit yesterday with the Spitfire from Revell/Hasegawa in 48th. One of the things I did before walking away from the hobby shop was to check if the wings were warped (as Tom Cleaver had mentioned in his Modelling Madness review). Luckily, they weren't so I walked away happy. There're a total of six sprues, five in grey plastic and a clear one. There's no flash present. Decals, though being from 1999 (22 years old) looked OK. Not like Revell's current decals printed by Cartograf, but OK. I tested a small one and was happy to see it didn't break and it moved from the backing paper in no time. The single option is for Ta 154A-0 TQ+XE. Anyways, enough talking! Here are the photos. Boxart: Instructions and decals: Sprues (bagged to avoid losing parts):
  13. Hallo The aircraft and operation of JG 300 are in many ways an interesting topic for me. In the first aspect of night navigation in the airspace of the big area of the Reich. The other one from the issue of flying in the hell of anti-aircraft fire. Finally to get a score and if lucky, to find home are find a suitable landing ground! This is my first Tamiya kit on the Bf-109. After a long series of 26 models of this type and scale. My verdict of the Tamiya kit is simple: Typical Tamiya. Build groups are complicated divided to get the magnets and metal in. Other detail is that way that installation is totally different from everything. But idiot save on the other hand! So you cannot get wrong. I stepped full in the 109 trap, since an open cooling hood does never work with a drop tank. They kiss each other. The surface, I used the decals, it was not intended to do so. I wanted to spray them, but the insignia masks I used were first time NewWare masks. If you stick with them once, you have no chance to reposition them. Different from his canopy masks, it is the size which distortion it. In opposite to Montex. Big masks of thin paper has Galaxy (for Sukhoi) but the material and the glue is much different! Well, so have a look and enjoy it. Happy modelling
  14. Hallo The camo was the interesting topic here. I built already some of the aircraft operating in the east.# But this is my first snow camo at all. I did use the Gunze C316 for the white and afterward I used a 3600 grain grinding textile to tread the surface. Usually I need it for breaking edges of outlines of sprayed demarcation lines. Here I used it more intense on the white surfaces. If you are interested in my WIP: The Zvezda kit is an analogy to the Tamiya kit with some big differences. All over. But basically the same idea, but much more simple and straight forward! I would not give a final verdict what I prefer. If I look at the finished model, you can get the same result. Have a look on the pictures, and enjoy them. Happy modelling
  15. Hallo This two kits I have presently in progress. Both of them differ in a high variety from Eduard. You can see it easily. The assembling from the Tamiya kit is very strange. You have no clue what is on, if you are a newbie. If you are quite familiar with this type, you scratch your head by the weird ideas from Tamiya. You must stick on to 100% on the instruction! Like flying with the manual on your knees! To me, no fun, no relaxing time! Here is one mistake too, the fuel primer pump is the wrong side, since the instrument shows to the outer side, not to the pilot’s face. I turned it. Zvezda is much more easy to understand, makes sense. If some details are not so good as Tamiya, but much better than Eduard! The engine is not detailed much, but makes in many aspect sense! So have a look! In opposition to that my Eduard thread: TAMIYA ZVEZDA Happy modelling
  16. Hallo This thread will become a chronology about the FW 190 A-6 and A-8. Most kits from Eduard. The decals will be from Eagle Calls. Code letters from Fantasy Printshop. In summery there will be 4 aircraft A-8 and two A-6. https://www.1001hobbies.de/decals-fuer-flugzeuge/9093-eagle-cal-eag48022-decal-focke-wulf-fw-190a-8-rs-ii-jg4-sturm-4-.html https://www.1001hobbies.de/decals-fuer-flugzeuge/9085-eagle-cal-eag48007-decal-focke-wulf-fw-190a-sturmjager-pt-1-4-white-.html Aftermarket products I do have a lot. 2 boxes! One version will be a A-5 converted to a G-3. In US service! How accurate the conversion will become, I do not know yet. https://www.pinterest.at/pin/57561701470917414/ One will be a D-9 from Eduard and one Ta-152 from Zoukei Mura. All in scale 1/48. However, some basic questions for this build are solved. One was concerning the gear. The others of the Sturmstaffel are solved due to the book: https://www.google.com/search?sca_esv=581894545&rlz=1C1SXXQ_deAT915AT915&hl=de&q=fw-190+sturmstaffel+1+book&tbm=isch&source=lnms&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiy-Z6h-cCCAxWbhf0HHdJJBzMQ0pQJegQIDRAB&biw=1920&bih=931&dpr=1#imgrc=xN0-fmKlfiTnIM&imgdii=3363IQ7Cmdn-RM So far for today. The building will start at Christmas or in 2024 after New Year! Happy modelling
  17. Hallo Now my last Eduard Bf-109 in 1/48. It is now finished, after a very long series. I used the Brasin set for cockpit and engine. The build of the Brasin stuff was not so easy. It lacks on a few instruction issues. Overall the use of both sets together. It advises you for using the kit cockpit and engine set. It is an fitting issue not so simple, since the Brasin cockpit fits a little different from the kit's cockpit. I took the risk and got it. Not in the quality as I liked it. But my exercise on two Brasin sets complete on the 43 scale G-6 proved worth. Otherwise I would have failed. Again I took the challenge to spray the national insignia. Markings and stencils I used Eduard stuff from the kit. Here again I took the risk and removed all decal films! Yes, you hear right! Also on the five. On the lettering I had a problem, an accident! This particular aircraft I liked from the appearance and because it is from JG 300 with the blue white blue band. So have a look. Happy modelling
  18. Hallo Now, this time a stupid question, since I built many Fw-190. The stencils of the gear cover says Federbein Solldruck / suspension leg / nominal pressure Über / unter 4600kg. Over / under We see marks and numbers. They are the Solldruck. But how to read it? I thought that the rear smal triangle door is used a indicator. Actually I have no clue! Can anyone give me an idea? Happy modelling
  19. Hi, Anyone have a pic of the heated windshield in a Dora (or any 190 really)? I have found a pic of the side pane showing the wires, but can't find one of the front glass, not even on a 152!
  20. Hallo This will be a long WIP. Since I intend to write here ablut my 1/48 modelling of Eduard kits in this versions. Starting with a F-2 from Rusia. It will have a brown, green, grey camo. With Montex mask. A G-2 vetsion also with brown green from Africa and a G-6 in brown and green from Sicily. All nstional insignia will be sprayed or by HGW wet transfer done. I replace the etched parts by Quintas. Well , I will start on Monday. In summery this WIP will culminate in 10 models or more. Happy modelling
  21. Hallo Since I want to build a captured Fw-190 G-3 and I have as source just a A-5 kit. Why to do it? I have a nice decal option from aftermarket I bought long time ago. The aircraft is overall white with Wr.#160057 And it is a big difference to every other Luftwaffe 190. https://captured-wings.fandom.com/wiki/Werk_Nr_160057 https://inchhighguy.wordpress.com/2020/06/17/captured-focke-wulf-fw-190s-of-the-79th-fighter-group/ So far I got it, I have to delete the fuselage MG's. Maybe there is some expert, for more detailed information! Thanks in forward! Happy modelling
  22. Hallo Messerschmitt Bf-109 K-4 black 8 from 14./JG 53 Echterdingen in Germany at 1945 The kit was the Eduard 1/48 #11177. This kit has some issues, which are different to all other issues mentioned in the Bf-109 kits. This kit is a new kit. Two things which are simple wrong: The handgrip and foothold on the star side. No Kurfürst has this!!!!!! And: I used Eduard parts for upgrading the cockpit and used some resin parts for detail. Montex masks for markings. The camo was a little challenge. Have a look. Happy modelling
  23. Hallo This is my Messerschmitt Bf-109 G-14/U4 blue 3 from 4./JG 77 Schönwalde in Germany at 1944 This aircraft was used by Lt. H. Schlick. Kit: Eduard 1/48 #82118. This kit has some issues, which I described multiple in my earlier threats according Eduard 109s. I used Quintas for upgrading the cockpit and used some resin parts for detail. The camo was quite straight away. Have a look. Happy modelling
  24. Hallo This are photos some years ago, when I built this kit. This was my second WW1 kit, at this time without any experience in WW1 aircraft. In at this days in an awful physical condition after release from hospital. I cam acros this pics, when cleaning my computer from old files. Maybe it is of interest. Have a look: Happy modelling
  25. Hallo It all may be a silly question of an experienced modeler. Presently I work on 109s from JG300. The camo of aircraft in this unit, specially at the beginning of ops, are darkened with black and RLM74 in a heavy way. This painting process may also have caused some interesting aspects for the modeler. My question, you have for instance the underside hatch of FuG units. If the hatches are all over black, can the mechanic find easy access? Or can a mechanic see necessary stencils on the aircraft? Does he need them, or is he experienced to work without them? Or are stencils removed to improve the camo? So, if you have some ideas to get better along with this matter, thank you in forward. Happy modelling
