  1. Next in the queue are these two, partly because having bought the first five volumes of the Luftwaffe Crash Archive I want to make a start on utilising the fabulous research therein. Tamiya Emil by jongwinnett, on Flickr Airfix Emil by jongwinnett, on Flickr So far actual modeling progress has been limited to a waft of Halfords finest primer. Coming next... by jongwinnett, on Flickr Ideally I would like, to do one as Boehm's E-3 which was the first Bf109 to come down in the UK. However, whilst I have most of the necessary decals, the White 4 edged red eludes me. I think Boehm's plane feat
  2. This is my second build of 2015. Two models in two months... man, I'm getting slow in my old age. I remember when I could build twenty in one year! This is the 1/48 Eduard Bf 109E-3 Weekend Edition that I received as a Christmas Present. Being a freebie, I decided to add a little aftermarket to this one, which consisted of a resin seat by Ultracast, metal barrels by Master and decals by Hussar. Wanting to do something different, I decided on a not-often-modelled Royal Romanian Air Force example. The model was painted with Lifecolor RLM 65, Tamiya Dark Green and Vallejo Deep Yellow. As
  3. Evening all, As promised in my WIP thread, here's the finished 109. A few niggles that I can't ignore, but a generally an enjoyable build. I'll be displaying her at Yeovilton along with the Spitfire. Thanks for looking, comments welcomed Shaun
  4. Whilst making the finishing touches to my Hellcat, I couldn't resist making a start on the next of my Battle of Britain builds, selecting the Tamiya E-3 boxing as the first of two 109s I have planned for my project. The build has progressed quickly as you'd expect of a Tamiya kit, with the interior complete. I've added some pre-painted belts from Eduard as finishing touch, but otherwise it's OOB. Expect progress to be pretty swift! Cheers, Shaun
  5. Well I almost completely forgot about/missed this one. Like the majority probably will, I’m going for an Eduard model as well, though mine will be the 1/48 ProfiPACK G4. And being a Bf100 it was only even going to be a nightfighter for me and not just any, supposedly the last aircraft ever flown by Major Heinz-Wolfgang Schnaufer, the greatest Night Fighter pilot of all time (there’s a lot of debate whether it was C3+BA). Along with all the lovely gear Eduard supplies I’m adding their details set and Master models beautiful FuG 218 antenna set. As the model doesn’t support ( ) the FuG218

Just like with its 1/32nd kit (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234947836-132-messerschmitt-bf110e-2-trop-by-dragon-released/), Dragon is to release very soon (August 2014), in its Wing Tech/Master Series, a 1/48th Messerschmitt Bf.110E-2 Tropical kit - ref.5560.

  10. There are some new and interesting 109 builds here on Britmodeller, so i thought its a good idea to post and share one of my Gustavs. Its the Hasegawa kit in 1/32 scale, maybe not the most accurate 109 on the market but if you are looking for a relaxing build go with this kit, it builds nearly for itself. The markings are for a Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-6, 4./JG 51 “Mölders” flown by Obfw. Elias Kühlein. I hope you like it Bernd
  11. So for some added fun, I'm modifying Revell's 1/32 Bf109G-10 Erla kit so the control surfaces will operate with the movement of the control stick. First step was to modify the kit's ailerons so that they actually move. Learn how I did this on my website: http://www.highflyingmodels.com/me109-aileron
  12. Hello I would appreciate Your opinions concerning this can of worms..... Based on my references,I am being offered between two different camo schemes for this 109G-14; first is 82/83/76 and the other 74/75/76. Now what would be most obvious choice,the 82/83 sounds suspicious,it is the option given by decal sheet. The new AZ Model G-14 1/72 scale has the normal three grey option. My only resources are two b/w pics where this 109 has taller (wooden) rudder but with shorter tailwheel and Erla canopy. This is either 4.JG 3 or 10.JG 3 plane and Werkenummer is 462919 and its number is white 7 an
  13. Walk around, This is my version of the Airfix kit, there may be some dispute over the colours I used! It was painted with tamiya paints and weathering sets. Pretty much from the box, I just added aileron trim tabs and fixed the wing root fillet using plastic sheet. Xtradecal swastika. It is not a new build but I'm new here. This is my first aircraft "ready for inspection"

  15. Hi Folks I have just started a Hasegawa Bf109F2 and have noticed that the fuselage has the fuel filler and gas filler points of the later marks on the fuselage. The kit instructions point out to fill the fuel filler on the port spine but they don't mention the additional filler further aft on the stbd side nor the gas filler point (cannon charging point?) lower down on the aft stbd side. I have a feeling that these are for later marks but don't have my references with me can anyone confirm they should be filled? Thanks Duncan B
  16. The new Eduard stuff has arrived today and is available to buy from our website right now! Top of the list is the Bf109G Royal Class set. Again, please no discussions about the accuracy of this kit as it's been done to death now, I will remove offending posts if anyone bothers. The kit has plastic parts and marking options for G-2/G-4/G-6 and G-14 models and about 16 different marking options, including 109's flown by Barkhorn and Hartmann. Also included are resin wheels, cannon pods, rocket launchers, canopy/wheel masks and colour zoom etch. As a bonus a Bf109 beer glass and part of a cras
  17. Just a quick reminder that we have Eduard's excellent Messerschmitt Bf110G-4 Nightfighter Profipack in stock now for a mere £15.50!! That's almost £10 off UK RRP!!! So if you've not already got probably the best Bf110G-4 in 1/72, now's the time to grab one while they're really cheap! http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk/02eduard-172--kits---profipack-132-c.asp thanks Mike
  18. So I got my hands on a new AZ Models 1/72 Bf109G-1. It's a lovely kit and a fair price too - the plastic quality is up there with Fine Molds and if you buy any other 1/72 Bf109G nowadays, you really want your head tested! It does have a problem, a problem that it shares with the earlier G-5/G-6/G-8 and G-14 releases, that is one of confusing instructions! It seems that AZ have not learned from this problem, which is a bit disappointing. Some of us don't want to have to spend ages researching a subject to work out which bits to use, we'd rather crack on and get building! The first problem is
  19. We've got the latest batch of AZ Models Bf109's on order and they should be here any time this week (from tomorrow onwards, Parcelforce allowing!). There's the G-1, G-2, G-2/trop, G-4 and a Bf109G joypack. The Joypack, is the same idea as the Spitfire and Cobra joypacks, 3 kits, plus basic instructions but no decals, for a lot less than buying 3 individual kits. The Bf109 Joypack, has the sprues to built either the G-5, G-6, G-8 and G-14 versions if the 109. We've only ordered 1 of each but if any one wants any of them, shout up and we'll add them to the next order, once we've recouped some
  20. Here is my latest completed model. Inspired by Deanflyer's impressive Tamiya/Matchbox Bf109, I blew off the dust from an old Hasegawa 109E box and got cracking. I'd always wanted to build this particular plane - I have the original boxing of this still in the stash, and I've wanted to build this for at least 15 years and never got to it. Carpe Weekium, and it is complete. The old Hasegawa decals were not only cream (as usual) but refused to stick or respond to MicroSet/Sol. So, I used a combination of Eduard stencils and national markings, and some markings from Sky decals. I kept this ver
  21. Hiya, this is my take on the Airfix 1/72 Messerschmitt BF 110. This is about my 5th model completed since my return, but the first one I'm really happy with. The kit is great in terms of fit, and she looks like a 110, but it lacks detail in places, and the panel lines are too deep, but that has been discussed to death!!! I had a number of problems of my own doing, hence I've had to replace all the guns on the kit. I would also say the decals performed brilliantly for me, I understand others have been less fortunate. Paints: Vallejo for all main colours, preshading and weathering in Tamiya We
  22. Dear fellow modellers, this is Revell's 1/72 Messerschmitt Bf-109 G-10 with upgrades from Quickboost (Propeller, Air Intake), Eduard (Photo Etch), Rob Taurus (Vacu Canopy) and Eagle Cals (Decals). There are some colour pictures of this particular machine, which crash-landed behind American lines in 1945. The camoflage looks like RLM74/RLM75, but with reduced 'red' factor (as seen in Kagero's "Bf-109 G/K Vol.1") it could as well be RLM75/RLM83, which I chose. According to Eagle Cals, this aircraft belonged to I./JG52. The model was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby colours with my Evolution airbr
  23. The latest batch of AZ Models 1/72 kits is here @ MJW Models and they are on our website available to buy now! We've got 4 new Bf109G-6's - JG52, JG53, JG54 and Italian Bf109's and 2 new Spitfire IXc's - Civilian and converted Mk IXc's. We've also started to stock the AH-1G Cobra (USMC and US Army) as well as the joypacks of the Spitfire IC and Cobra. Also now stocked is the colour etch parts for the Bf109G kits. http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk/admiral-and-az-models-252-c.asp thanks Mike
  24. There's some interesting releases from Eduard in 1/72 and 1/48 in April for WW2 fans. All prices currently TBA. There's another variant of the Bf110 in 1/72, this time the Bf110C-6. I've not seen much about this kit but it's a limited edition kit and from the price Hannants are advertising it at (£28.00) I would suspect that there is some brassin parts (probably the 30mm cannon) in this as well as the usual mask/etch. I know it sounds expensive for a 1/72 but the Eduard Bf110 kits are really nice kits and I don't see a weekend version of this coming out, so if you want this version, this will
  25. Greetings, good people of RFI threads, I come bearing gifts (or sacrificial material, whatever you please)... This is my little BF110E, Eduard's Profipack with some scratchbuilt details - engines, ventral guns, nose guns, a number of things in the cockpit... The kit itself is a treat to work with, I enjoyed every moment of it, pieces fit perfectly, panel lines are as they should be, highly recommended for beginners and experienced modelers alike... It took around 6 months to build it, mostly because my studies haven't left me much time in first 3 or 4 months... There's a WIP thread as well, y
