  1. 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
  2. Messerschmitt Bf109E-4/N Trop 1:48 Airfix The Bf109E-4/N Trop kit is exactly the same kit as the Bf109E-4/E-1 kit I have previously reviewed here. There are some slight differences with engine filters etc but the sprues for the two kits are identical Decals Decals are provided for two schemes. Maj Eduard Neuman, 1/JG27, North Africa 1941-42 (As box art). Lt Peter-Paul Steindl, Stab II/JG54, Aradm Romania March 1941. Conclusion This is an excellent kit of a popular model choice from Aifix. The model makes into a great looking kit and is excellent value for money for a new tool kit.
  3. Well its now finished. Although the scheme is based on the airfix Von Werra scheme, I have used a bit of artistic license, and done a side camo scheme too. I am very pleased with the end result, despite the obvious areas for improvement, though please remember this is only my fourth model. Link to work in progress thread here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234933782-airfix-172-messerschmitt-bf-109e-4-link-to-ready-for-inspection-on-page-2/ So here are the pictures:
  4. Messerschmitt BF109G-6/R6 AZ Models - 1:72 The Messerschmitt BF109 hardly needs an introduction. With nearly 34,000 built in 10 years, it is one of the most widely produced aircraft in history. Starting out in 1935, whilst broadly similar to the Spitfire in layout, monocoque construction and V12 engine, the engine is in fact inverted and famously fuel injected which in the early war years gave some advantage in combat over its British rivals which were carburettor fed. Initially designed as a lightweight interceptor, evolution led it to a variety of needs including bomber escort, fighter
  5. Messerschmitt Bf109E-4/E-1 1:48 Airfix There has been much written and published in print and in the web concerning the Bf109 which I will not repeat here. The E-4/E-1 model here was used in the high-speed fighter bomber role operating from France against targets in England. It was also operated in the Med, North Africa, and the Eastern Front. This is Airfix's new tool of the Bf109. I have built the club kit version of this in the markings for a captured Aircraft and found it a very easy kit to build. The kit comes in two sprues of what seems to be Airfix's choice of light grey plastic. T
  6. Messerschmitt Me109 G-10 Revell 1:32 The history of the Me-109 is written large all over the web and also included in the earlier review of the Revell Me109G-6 release, HERE, so I won’t go repeating it. As it is, its relevant to post the differences between the two aircraft as far as I can ascertain. In the Reich Luft Ministerium (RLM) vision, the G6 was designed to be the last version of the Gustav to be ever produced. Consequently, as early as 1943, Messerschmitt started working on an improved 109, the K. The K was essentially a refined G6 with emphasis on improving the aerodynami
  7. We've just had a delivery of kits n bits today including the latest from Airfix and AZ Models. From Airfix we have the new series 1 Hurricane kit (£5.20), which as the fabric wing version, with 3 bladed prop, in Battle of France markings. We also have the latest Airfix Lancaster (£21.50) which has options for a 'Tiger Force' Lanc with 50 cal machine guns, which tempts me greatly! From AZ Models we have the latest batch of Bf109G's. They are all Ltd Ed kits and each box has markings specific to one unit, JG3 Udet, JG5 Eismeer, JG300 Wilde Sau and non Luftwaffe (Romania, Yugoslavia, Slovakia),
  8. As well as the revised prices for the Hobby Boss 1/48 Ta152's and Fw190's, we've revised the prices of our remaining Me262 kits. The prices are as follows Me262 A-1a/U5 and U2 (V056) £9.25 each Me262 A-1a/U3 and A-1b £13.00 each. Please note that the UK RRP for these kits is £17! Our supplier of the really cheap Me262 kits has now run out of the Me262 A-1a/U5 kits (we bought the last ones!), so when we run out of them, that's it no more and we've only got a few left! Again like the other Hobby Boss kits, once we run out, we won't restock on any of them, unless any asks us for one or they a
  9. This airframe is Me 163B-1a, Werknummer 191659 and RAF Air Ministry serial number AM215, "Yellow 15", was captured at Husum in 1945. Now at The National Museum of Flight, East Fortune Airfield, East Lothian, Scotland Pics thanks to Nigel Heath.
  10. When not building airliners, I do build other subjects... Like this one. An overall nice kit and my first attempt to paint mottle using the airbrush.
  11. We've just got in a few new kits from Special Hobby and AZ Models. Remember, they are all at discounted prices! First of all in 1/48, there's 2 new Special Hobby Firefly Mk I's, the first is the Royal Navy one, with 4 marking options from HMS Triumph, as used in the early part of the Korean War. The other has markings for foreign users - Netherlands, Ethiopia, Thailand and Canada. Also from Special Hobby in 1/72, we have the Royal Navy version of the Vought Vindicator - the Chesapeake, we also have a Post War PV-2D Harpoon and a captured Junkers W 34, used by the RAF as a hack aircraft. We'
  12. Hello, I´ve just finished my new kits. It´s 1/48 Eduard´s Bf 109 E-1. Pants: Gunze, Tamiya, Vallejo, Humbrol Lacquers: Gunze, Future. Happy new year to all :-)))))
  13. I'm thinking of getting some of these for myself, especially the G-5 and G-8, since I don't recall anyone else ever doing them. Would anybody else be interested if we stocked them? I would estimate the selling price for us to be about £11.50 each. If anyone wants any, please speak up and say which ones you would like and how many. Choices are as follows - G-5, G-6 (non Luftwaffe), G-6R/6, G-8 and G-14. They are supposed to be the new tech type kits similar to the Spitfire IX kits they did. thanks Mike
  14. Me.262 Wheels (648106 for Tamiya) 1:48 Eduard Brassin These wheels can be used for any boxing of Tamiya's 1:48 Me.262, and having used a set of Tamiya wheels on a Dragon 262, you can also use them on those, and that is a blessing, as the Dragon tyres are horrible. They have poor fitting hubs, and flexible "rubber" tyres that split and disintegrate in a surprisingly short time By the time I'd finished building my recent Dragon 262A-1/U4, the nose wheel tyre had fallen apart along the tread lines. I also have a few Hobby Boss 262s, and having just checked, they will also fit these kits, wh
  15. Bf.110C-6 Zerstorer 1:48 Eduard The Bf.110 was twin engine heavy fighter of mid-30s design that was almost outdated by the start of WWII, but with successive upgrades was forced to continue right to the end of the war, although hopelessly outclassed by that time, and easy prey to later war designs. The C variant was the first production variant made in significant quantities, and ran with more powerful Daimler Benz 601 engines with the familiar upwards sweeping exhaust stacks. Seven sub-variants were built, the sixth having an experimental installation of a 30mm Mk./101 cannon in a blister
  16. We've just received the latest batch of Hobby Boss new releases in 1/48 and 1/72 and I think the 1/48 releases in particular are quite interesting! 1/48 First off we have the F-80 (P-80) Shooting Star. Looks very nice indeed in the box and comes with etch seatbelts. Next the Me262A-1a, finally Hobby Boss have released the standard fighter version of their excellent Me262 kit. Anyone who has any interest in the Me262 should get at least one of the Hobby Boss 262s! Lastly and I think the most interesting is the Fw190D-10. Fw190 uber experts may correct me but I think the D-10 existed only as
  17. Hello fellaz, I have been away from the forum for quite some time cause of busy work schedule etc but I kept building models on and off so in the last few months I completed 4 and about to complete the 5th... Here is one of them: Regards
  18. BF110D & Bf110G-2 Weekend Editions 1:72 Eduard The menacing looking BF110 first took to the air in 1936 and despite performance shortcomings as opposing aircraft developed, it continued in production until near the end of the war. With delays of the DB600 series engines, it wasn’t until the C series that the performance was considered suitable in its intended role. The D model introduced the capability for much improved endurance in 1939 and initially the Bf110 notched up considerable success as heavy fighter and bomber escort over Poland, Norway and France,. When faced with t
  19. Hi All, The first of my 3 (yes 3 ) builds will be the Heller 1/72 Messerschmitt BF109E.... First impressions of this kit don't seem too bad (for a kit older than I am - and not like the other two kits I'm building) the kit comes on 4 sprues and has the obligatory raised detail... The type of styrene used reminds me of recent new tool airfix kits - rather soft.... Seems to have minimal flash and a few nice details.... The kit will be built entirely out of the box (except maybe some nice new decals) Please find all sprue shots etc below - and please keep your expectations low....... Very v

  21. It's almost time to get our order in for Eduard's May releases and I need to know if anyone is interested so I can order enough in. The kits due for release are the 1/48 Bf109E-7/Trop and the 1/72 Bf110D weekend. Same as usual, we'll be aiming for 15% off UK RRP, it's not a guarantee but we usually are there or thereabouts! thanks Mike
  22. After making my first model in 15 years, I have caught the bug again! (see my related post for my first Spitfire build)... I always wanted to do an Me109, so I bought the new tool kit: I wanted to improve on my Spitfire, and try new tips from various model forums. This time, I brush-painted with Humbrol Enamel paint. I also used the new Humbrol Clear varnish, applied after painting to help with decals, which were also applied using Humbrol DecalFix. To finish off, I sprayed a light coat of Humbrol Acrylic Matt varnish from a spray-can, to take it back to a matt finish; I painted according
  23. As well as the new Eduard 1/72 Bf110G-4 and 1/48 F-15A/C 'Fighting Eagles' we have the latest Eduard Brassin in 1/48 and 1/72. This includes the 1/48 GBU-24 Paveway III's and Russian Alamo-C missiles, also in 1/72 the Ju88 Wheels. We also have the latest 1/48 and 1/72 Masks and Zoom etch sets, including both for the Trumpeter MiG-21F-13 kit. There's also a couple of new kits in - the Trumpeter 1/48 MiG-23MF Flogger B and in 1/72 the Hobby Boss Sukhoi PAK-FA T-50 stealth fighter. All at discounted prices! http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk/ thanks Mike
  24. Messerschmitt Bf 110G2 Profipack 1:72 Eduard Designed to fulfil a German Air Ministry requirement for a long-range, twin-engined combat aircraft, the Bf 110 was Messerschmitts interpretation of the zerstörer or heavy fighter concept. Following the prototypes first flight in 1936, it saw off competing designs from Arado, Focke-Wulf and Henschel and was in service by the outbreak of war in 1939. Fitted with the same engines as the Bf 109E, the Bf 110 was a powerful aircraft and was very well armed in comparison with its counterparts. Despite early successes in Poland, the inadequacy of t
  25. We've managed to get our hands on 4 of the long discontinued Eduard Me410A-1/B-1 Schnellbomber Profipacks. The boxes are a bit worn but are intact and all the kits look to be complete and unstarted (still in sealed plastic bags). The kits are the excellent Fine Molds Me410 kits with a load of aftermarket thrown in. You get 2 additional Vac Form canopies (you still get the kit canopy too), a sheet of (non-colour) etch, loads of resin parts and what looks like 3 sets of canopy mask (hard to see but I think there is 3 masks!). They are ex shop stock from one of our suppliers and we got all they
