  1. Kora Models has just released a 1/72nd Hirth Lastenträger (resin) & Messerschmitt Bf.109G (AZmodel) in Mistel configuration - ref.72019 Source: https://www.lfmodels.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=2351&zenid=56lk5f17ssm86s4aj36k7tvfi2 Box art V.P.
  2. Hello I would like to ask some questions about those mentioned recce versions. I did search from my own references and from the net but if anyone have other opinions and knowledge. First, would anyone be able to help about 109G-4R-3 with two auxiliary fuel tanks on wings, how they were attached ? Did they have similar stubs like on those WGr.21 rocket launchers or rack or what ? I have found some pics but just would like to know if someone knows better and more. Also, what were those long things like pipes coming forward on those tanks ? Second, Pierre Clostermann describes on his book 'The Great Show', how he shoot down a recce 109 with two wing mounted drop tanks. I know that it was Ian Blair who made the claim and that the 109 was apparently 109G-6R-3 1.(F)/120 A6+XH flown by Quednay. Now the question, would the 109G-6 recce have used those auxiliary tanks ? Did G-8 use or could have been used similar tanks. I know that this is difficult but any info and output would be highly appreciated ? TIA Teemu Haajanen

  5. Dear Fellow Modellers, I've just finished this build in the KUTA GB (after not managing to finish it in time for the Battle of Britain GB, in the Summer of 2015) and thought I could post a few more pictures here. The WIP thread can be found here. Notable points of the build: This took me about 6 months to finish (from the end of July 2015 to almost the end of January 2016) but it was built in parallel with several other models (which are still to be finished, by the way...) It's the first model I finish using PE (Eduard's Zoom set) and I'm happy with the results, though working with PE can be really fiddly The camouflage consists of some mottling and stippling all over on the fuselage sides. I'm happy with the paint finish, though the stippled camouflage should be denser I had to cut the canopy in order to pose it open. I'm afraid the canopy paint finish and varnish of the transparent areas is not perfect due to masking removal... Use of Micro Sol over Alclad Klear Gloss doesn't work, which combined with thick decals caused some difficulties in making the decals conform to the panel lines Weathering: Vallejo dark wash, chipping, Vallejo pigments Here are general views of the model: The cockpit: Details of the cockpit, taken at the time of closing the fuselage: Weathering of engine cover and cannons Weathering: wing roots chipping and exhaust stains Weathering: top surface of wings: Weathering: underside Together with the other Bf 109 of my collection (a Bf 109 G10, RFI here) Thanks for looking. All comments are most welcome. Cheers Jaime
  6. This was something of a themed build, begun in 2014 in acknowledgement of the 70th anniversary of the Normandy landings. One of their early kits, representing the half-fabulous initial high-altitude variant. A few were issued to FAG.123 at Guyancourt, with the thankless task of providing adequate photoreconnaissance cover of the Normandy area in the weeks following the invasion. Significantly increasing an aircraft's wingspan and area (and this was little more than two plugs inserted between the existing G-5 wings and fuselage) rarely works well, and this was no exception. The aircraft was only present for a brief time, being ostentatiously left outdoors in the hope that the Allies would take care of it. 'Oh Heinrich, you make me shudder' one Luftwaffe airman is said to have remarked. I am unsure about the historicity of some of the details, but the camera setup of the G-5, with a tall fin of the final variants, and a longer tailwheel (not needing so much AoA on takeoff), along with the removal of all guns bar the engine cannon seemed consistent enough, along with the overall RLM76 scheme. I hope you like it. http:// http:// http:// http:// http:// http:// http:// http://
  7. Bf.109G-5 Update sets for Eduard 1:48 Eduard As is usual with Eduard's new kits, they work in tandem creating aftermarket to enhance their already excellent models, aimed at the modeller that just has to go for the maximum detail when they build. At time of writing there are two sets in the initial batch to go with the new Bf.109G-5 we reviewed here, and I'm sure others will follow shortly, as there are also some new sets just coming out for the Bf.109G-6 we reviewed here a few months ago. Update Set (48893) As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, this arrives in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions behind. It contains parts that are more detailed than their plastic counterparts, which will give your model a more in-scale look. The radio compartment door and surround are replaced, as are the covers in the gear leg tunnel within the gear bay. The rear radiator flaps have new parts with folded egses, the flaps with their complex arrangement are replaced by more detailed parts, and the gear bay doors are replaced with a lamination of several parts with detail etched into both sides that far surpasses the styrene parts. A new oleo-scissor, tie-down loop and brake cable are also added to the leg. Finally a base for the underwing antenna and straps for the fuel tank complete the sheet. Brassin Cockpit (648263) The set arrives in the familiar Brassin clamshell box, with the resin parts safely cocooned on dark grey foam inserts, and the instructions sandwiched between the two halves, doubling as the header card. Inside are four bags of resin parts, two small sheets of PE, a square of acetate, a single decal on a tiny sheet, and of course the instructions. The resin parts create a complete replacement cockpit with highly detailed parts assembled from the resin and PE. The instrument panel can be made from resin and the decal, or a lamination of pre-painted PE for the ultimate in detail. Seatbelts, rudder pedals and other fine parts are made up from PE, while the balance is to be found on the resin casting blocks. To fit the set you will need to remove the detail from the fuselage sidewalls, which can be done using a combination of sanding and scraping with the edge of a blade. Even the head-armour is laminated from acetate sheet and PE parts for scale thickness, and the canopy can be held open with a tiny PE part. Conclusion There's more to come but this initial batch of parts will hit the spot if you're looking to make your model even more detailed, but don't either have the time or inclination to scratch build everything. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  8. Bf.109G-5 Profipak 1:48 Eduard The G series 109s were arguably the definitive version of the aircraft, incorporating all the improvements from the many previous versions before. Known collectively as the Gustavs, there were numerous sub versions before and after the G-5, improving the design incrementally with things such as better radio performance, rack fittings for bombs and fuel tanks as they went along. The G-5 was developed alongside the G-6 as the pressurised cockpit version of the 6, so both airframes were broadly identical except for the canopy and some cockpit fittings. Both versions also had the same armament, with two 13mm MG131s fitted in the nose instead of the smaller MG17s, which necessitated blisters over the gun bay to accommodate the larger breeches and ammo feeds. Two 15mm MG151 cannons were mounted in the wings giving it formidable fire power for the time. Production of the G line finished in late '44 to be replaced by the simplified K series that was required due to the deteriorating situation at that stage. The Kit This is a reboxing of the G-6 kit we reviewed here, with identical sprues as you'd expect, but amended Photo-Etch (PE) and decals to portray the differences. Inside the usual Profipak box you get four sprues in grey styrene, a sprue in clear, a sheet of PE, two sheets of decals, a sheet of pre-cut masks (not pictured), and of course the usual well-laid-out instruction manual in colour with the paint and markings options at the back. The first differences are in the instrument panel, but you could be forgiven for not noticing once it's built up. Positioning of the aerials is subtly different too, and there's no Erla-Haube clear-view canopy option (although it is still on the sprue with others) for this model, as the pressurised canopy needed to be strong. Some decal options use the altered head-armour panel, which is no-longer curved over the pilot's head, but blocks the whole rear canopy off, with two small view-ports in the top corners and is supplied as one clear part for ease. The final differences as far as construction go are a choice of underwing antennae, and omission of the un-sloped fuel tank from the build. More parts for your spares box! Markings As seems traditional with Eduard Profipak releases, there are five options in the box with a fair amount of variation in colours and schemes to suit most folks. The decals are printed anonymously and have a strange vibrant blue background and slightly lumpy texture of the adhesive coat under the printing, although that won't make a jot of difference to the finish once the adhesive melts in water. From the box you can build one of the following: W.Nr. 27 119, Flown by Fw. Hecker, 9./JG 54, Ludwigslust Air Base, February, 1944 – grey mottled wings and grey undersides W.Nr. 27112, Flown by Maj. Walther Dahl, the CO of III./JG 3, Bad Wörishofen, December, 1943 – RLM76 wings and underside W.Nr. 26 082, Flown by Flg. Victor Widmayer, 7./JG 11, Oldenburg Air Base, October, 1943 – Stepped splinter pattern RLM74/75 wings, RLM76 underside with one wing painted black 1./JG 300, Flown by Fw. Hans-Werner Gross, Bonn – Hangelar Air Base, March, 1944 – wiggly RLM70 wings over RLM76, with a black underside Flown by Uffz. Hermann Berdelmann, 1./JG 300, Herzogenaurach Air Base, July, 1944 – RLM74/75 splinter pattern on wings over RLM76 Register, sharpness and colour density are good, and you are supplied with instrument decals should you wish to use them instead of the PE, and you'll be relieved to hear that the spinner spirals are provided as decals. The smaller sheet contains all the stencils that brings the model to life, and everything has a thin glossy carrier film cut close to the edges of the printing. Conclusion Winner, winner, chicken dinner as Bri4n would say. Superb detail, simple to use PE parts to improve on the styrene, and everything engineered to give you maximum detail while making the build as simple as possible. The kit will sell well, and this was evidenced by the scarcity of samples when our review sample was being dispatched. Watch out for upcoming reviews of the extras from Eduard aimed that those that want to push the detail to the max! Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  9. Hello again, this is my follow up to the "Jagerbomber" I posted up a few weeks ago. The mask set came with two versions so I decided to use the second on another iconic German vehicle. Great kit to build and no issues with the fit. Thanks for looking, Siffo.
  10. The 109 E-7 Trop is not an actual finished model. She was finished last winter, but weather conditions are now the best ones and I´ve not posting this model here on britmodeller. (best european modelling forum ever ) This Tamiya kit is nowadays still topically. It`s nearly built out of the box, only minor additional details were added. The list is short: adding new rivets with "Rosie the riveter some drain pipes Trop filter from Eduard Exhaust pipes from Moskit Cockpit from True Detail Background for photoshooting was my 1/48 hangar as for my Saab Gripen. I hope I`ve not strained too much your nerves with too many pictures... Thx for watching. Greetz Dirk
  11. HpH is to release a 1/18th Messerschmitt Me.109E fiberglass resin kit. Source: http://www.hphmodels.cz/index.php/en/news/item/367-bf-109e-1-18 V.P.
  12. Hello, and thanks for your interest in this topic. This is the third Bf-109 I've built in a row, this time it's AZ Model's new Bf-109 G-14. In my opinion, this kit is on par with the Fine Molds kit in terms of accuracy and detailling, but sells for less than half the price. Assembly is easy, with good engineering and flawless surfaces. Only a little filler was used for the wing/fuselage joint and on the fuslage halves. I added Brengun photo-etch set, Rob Taurus vacu canopy (designed for Revell's Bf-109 G-10, but suitable for this model as well) and Eagle Cals decals from "Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-14s (EC72-43)". The model was painted RLM74/RLM75/RLM76 with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, sealed with Alclad matt varnish, and weathered with artist's oils. The markings represent "Yellow 10" from 3./JG77, Euskirchen (North Rhine-Westphalia), Germany, 1945. I have not found any photographic reference for this machine, relying on the decal sheet instructions only. The spinner spiral comes from that decal sheet, too. The pitot tube is a metal item from Fine Molds accessories, and seems to be a little bit too long! All rudders have been re-positioned to add interest.

  15. Dogfight Doubles - Supermarine Spitfire Vb / Messerschmitt Bf109-E Airfix 1:48 The air war over Malta in WWII was a bloody battle with the odds stacked hard against the residents and small Allied presence there. The island posed significant strategic value to the Axis forces to prevent attacks in its shipping lanes interrupting supplies to their forces in North Africa. Initially under assault from the Italians, the Germans reinforced them in early 1941. Malta was under threat not only from military attack on the island itself, but from resource and food starvation as a result of attacks on the ships bringing supplies to the small fortress. In February 1941 Bf109E fighters of Jagdgeschwader 26 led by former Battle of France and Battle of Britain ace Oberleutnant Joachim Munchenberg gained air superiority operating from Sicily when their experienced crews overwhelmed the RAF pilots many who had limited combat experience based on Malta. As well as the RAF crews lacking combat experience, their Hurricanes had seen better days, let alone being already inferior to the 109E in good service condition. German efforts against Malta were strained due to resource distractions elsewhere, namely the Balkan Campaign and the attack on the Soviet Union. In mid 1941 this left the Italians taking the lead in attacks on Malta. With the weakening attacks and the influence of Air Commodore Hugh Lloyd, the RAF were able to get supplies through to the island, both in materials and aircraft. By July 1941 around 120 Hurricanes including some newly delivered Mk.II’s with a heavier punch and 60 bombers were now available to create an offensive from Malta. Despite heavy losses in low level shipping attacks, the RAF offensive continued, however in early 1942 German reinforcements were moved to Sicily where they could defend the shipping lanes using Bf110’s and Ju-88’s with great effect. This impact not only affected the RAF strike capability, but also the defensive capability yet again over Malta. In March 1942 Spitfires began to arrive on Malta from the carrier HMS Eagle as part of Operation ‘Spotter’. Opponents by this time were the more effective Bf109F and Macchi C.202’s which were outclassing the Hurricanes providing the back bone of the defensive operations. Despite the presence of the Spitfires, attacks on Malta severely hindered their ability to be effective, many being destroyed on the ground, however as supplies of new fighters got through as part of Operation Bowery in May ‘42, the tides began to turn in the RAF’s favour as Axis losses steadily increased. Hugh Lloyd was replaced with Keith Park of Battle of Britain fame in July ’42. His experience and abundance of British fighter planes by this time led him to take the enemy on using tactics favourable to the British. By October 1942, it was clear to the Germans that the RAF were too strong to be defeated on Malta, so their efforts were turned to North Africa. After almost 2 years of continual bombing and near starvation, the residents and British forces based on Malta had overcome the odds and defeated their Axis rivals. The kits Two of the iconic aircraft that operated during the air war over Malta were the Messerschmitt Bf109E and the Supermarine Spitfire Vb. First of all, to clear up any confusion, whist this set is sold as a ‘Dogfight Double’, as mentioned above, the Spitfire wasn’t available during Joachim Munchenbergs time when based on Sicily using Bf109E’s, he would have been opposing Hurricanes. The Spitfires of 229 Sqn would more than likely of been opposing the new Bf109F’s and Macchi C.202’s in ’42 onwards. With that out of the way, both kits are the newer toolings supplied by Airfix. The pack comes in an end-opening box with artwork of the two aircraft enclosed. It also comes with a stand to display the two aircraft in combat pose and a set of brushes, paints and glue. Each aircraft is individually wrapped. We have previously reviewed both aircraft kits on Britmodeller, so please see the links below for more information about the plastic: BF109E BF109E Tropical (same plastic as the ‘E’ review above) Spitfire Vb The stand comes in black plastic with a self adhesive label and Airfix moulded emblem to finish it off. Be aware if you decide to display the aircraft on the stand, then you will need to leave the slipper tank and drop tank off the Spitfire and Bf109E respectively and the holes for the stand need to go there. If this set is for a young or novice builder, you have to drill the holes for the stand yourself following the instructions. For this you will need a 2mm drill bit. Materials to build the kit As well as 2 brushes and two tubes of Hornby glue, 10 small pots of Humbrol acrylic paints are included to paint the aircraft. Including a 2mm drill bit would have been a good addition to this pack given the need to use one if you want to use the stand included. Decals Decals for two aircraft are included: Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vb, No. 229 Squadron, Royal Air Force, Qrendi, Malta, December 1942 Messerschmitt Bf109E-7, aircraft flown by Oberleutnant Joachim Muncheberg, 7./JG26 “Schlageter”, Gela, Sicily, Spring 1941 The decals are in excellent register with a semi-matt finish and look superb. Having used some of the recent decals by Airfix, I’ve been very impressed with how they settle down. A good selection of stencils are also included for both aircraft. Conclusion Given that this set includes new tooling for both aircraft and different decals than the single box options, it offers excellent value for money. Both kits build up in to great renditions in their own right and together will form a superb display of history ignoring the reality that they didn’t actually see combat with each other. As a young modeller myself (many, many years ago!!), I was captivated by these heroic periods in aviation warfare and these sets remind me of where my passion for both aviation and modelling came from. As such, I’m sure that these latest efforts by Airfix will have the same impact on today’s budding young modellers or even us older ones on a nostalgic trip! Review sample courtesy of
  16. Revell boxing of 1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109 G-10, of 11/JG 27 based at Schleswig-Holstein March 1945 (at least that's what the instuctions say. The instructions are also dated 1998 and I have been reliably informed that although fairly basic the accuracy of shape is second to none. Eduard etch set for cockpit and inside chin scoop, Hasegawa pilot figure from their Luftwaffe Pilot Figures & Equipment set and a basic attempt to add subtle rivets using the Trumpeter Master Tools Rivetter. Freehand airbrushed upper surface camo scheme and first attempt at freehand airbrush mottle. Just missing antenna cable which I will add soon. Will also need to change the Morane antenna mast under the port wing to natural wood as I have just learned here they were wood and just clear varnished. Couldn't get the stand attachment out. It was well and truly wedged in. On the stand Stand removed using Inpaint And the three 1/48 scale builds on one stand. WIP thread here Comments and suggestions welcome. Thanks for looking.
  17. By the end of November 2015 I was getting quite confident. I had already decided on the next build a month earlier as I had been eying up the old Revell 1/48 Bf109 G10 which I had bought some years previously for silly money (£5 if I remember correctly). I had recently picked up some photo etch sets for various intended projects at Scale Model World and also picked up a rivetting tool. I also have the Hasegawa Luftwaffe pilot figures and equipment set so the lack of a pilot was not an issue. Unfortunately I cannot find the pictures I took of the initial stages so we start at the completed cockpit enhanced with an Eduard photoetch set fully enclosed in the fuselage and the wings and tail already on. The various scoops around the nose have been hollowed out as have the exhaust stubs. You will also note that I made the cardinal sin of assuming something without checking references and cut off the square bulge for the enlarged battery behind the pilot and made it flush with an engraved door as in the E model. Did not realise my error until all was buttoned up and painted so it's not going to get corrected. I have come to the realisation that I need a LOT more practice with photoetch but I did manage to get it mostly in without too much anguish. Managed to fettle the gear into the up position (I really prefer them flying ) Cut out the solid navigation lights and created clear ones fron clear sprue cut to a right angle, drilled at the back and the relevant colour of Tamiya clear popped in the hole. Glued to the wing and then sanded and polished to shape. Red didn't turn out so good. Happy with the green though Those hollowed out and painted exhausts I felt he looked better with the 'tache although he now looks more likely to say 'Tally ho chaps!' In his office Canopy on The pencil lines show where I have added the rivet lines using the Master tools rivetter although I couldn't get the rivets to show on the picture Used custom Tamiya mixes for the RLM 76,81 and 82. RLM 76 applied after a nice undercoat of primer and a preshade. Note the prop spindle is now missing. That is the result of a mishap whilst undercoating whereby the spring clamp I was using to hold the plane sprung off sending the freshly primered 109 nosediving to the front dorstep where it proceeded to cartwheel with all the grace of a wounded gymnast hard against the wall. Not a happy bunny. Fixed it by drilling out the centre and glueing in a length of plastic rod of the appropriate diameter when the time came to add the prop Freehanded the camo but did use blutack sausages for the demarcation between upper and lower and Tamiya tape for the nose My first attempt at freehand mottling with an airbrush begins, I had also feathered in the demarcation between the RLM 76 and the top camo colours. 2nd mottle colour on 3rd mottle colour on and the nose is now a very fetching shade of RLM 04 Gelb Gloss coated and decals on. Didn't use the decal for the green fuselage band as it didn't go all round the fuselage at the location it was supposed to be at. All the bits on, some weathering courtesy of the new set of Flory washes I got from Telford, a bit of exhaust staining topped with a coat of Tamiya Matt Clear and we're just about done. Swastika came from a very old Xtradecal set of assorted sizes and I ended up masking around the fuselage decals and painting the fuselage band with my own approximation of the green. And you even get a shot of Phil's fingers too:) Comments and suggestions always welcome.
  18. Messerschmitt Bf 110 G-4. This is a G-series, night fighter, it was likely built in 1944 and it served with Nachtjagdgeschwader 3, the unit responsible for the night air defence of Denmark and North Germany. It was one of five Bf 110's taken by the British for technical evaluation. In 1946, it was selected for preservation by the Air Historical Branch. Now on display at the RAF Museum in Hendon this is one of only two intact Bf 110s. Pics mine.
  19. So.. just finished Polikarpov I-152 (I-15bis) http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234992236-polikarpov-i-152-148-special-hobby/ And I decided to start a new project. At this time in the contest "Out of the box" on the site http://scalemodels.ru/modules/forum/viewforum_f_191.html Messerschmitt Bf-109E Airfix on a scale of 1/48. It will be modification Bf- 109E1 of the Legion "Condor" during the Spanish company.
  20. Eduard are bringing us a couple of interesting 1/48 in April. The first is another boxing of Hasegawa's F-104 Starfighter, it's similar to the previous editions except that it has 10 marking options for German and NATO F-104's. The bigger news is the all new re-tooled Messerschmitt Bf109G-6 Profipack. We all know Eduard over-scaled their otherwise nice original kit, so hopefully, this one will correct the issues and be as excellent as the Spitfires, MiG-21's and Hellcats! Both kits have well over 10% off RRP based on the pricing info we've seen, it may be that we can do them a little cheaper! If anyone is interested, please visit the Eduard 1/48 'kits for backorder' section and leave your email address in the box and you'll be notified when they are in stock! http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk/09eduard-148--kits-for-backorder-313-c.asp thanks Mike
  21. Some pictures I took today of the completed build. WIP can be found here Next time I'll dust the model before taking the pictures And without the stand (removed using Inpaint) And paired with the older tool Airfix Sptitfire Mk1 which was the next build after this one. And again with stand edited out. And yes, I know the aerial connector is going to the wrong place in the fuselage on the 109. Also the Spit has both HF and IFF fitted which appeared correct according to the Xtradecal drawings for LO.A and, in my innocence, I reasoned that there might have been some crossover . Anyway I hope the above images meet with your approval. Comments and criticisms always welcome.
  22. My first full build on returning to modelling as opposed to finishing an old, stalled build. Not entirely certain if this belongs in WIP as, although it is a log of the build, it took place in June 2015. It's also my first try at posting images so here goes. This is an out of the box build and I wanted to have it in flying pose. That opened up a whole other can of worms. Also I apologise for the poor quality of the images as they were taken on my phone. I started, as would appear to be customary, with the cockpit painted RLM02 Tamiya Mix . and Mr Galland (sorry I got your moustache wrong but did attempt to put it right later none of which can be seen anyway ) In his office And with the sides on and wings attached I know they don't stand up to close scrutiny but I thought that as I was going to have it buttoned up and in flying pose most of it wouldn't be terribly visible anyway. To be continued when I stop coughing...

In my kit collection I have more than only one model of Bf 110G in scale 1/48, three old models from Revell/ Mongram (1997) and two Eduard kits, the newest version of this type. to built 5 kits is a very hard and that's why I've decided only three kit with correkt antenna areas and night fighter camouflage . This thread will be a longtime article. I found in these and some other board interesting articles about this kit. But most from them has mistakes and incorrection interpretation of camouflage and antenna equipment. In my reference library I found many drawings with mixing and speculatively antenna equipments and color camouflage model arts. But all have the same mistake: camouflage is incorrect or false antenna equipments speculatively only a few a/c types and equipments are understandable Many of last Bf 110G type are unique version with individuell armaments and equipments. Therefore it is not easy to built a correct Bf 110G. I do my best for a good result. It is my first built of bf 110G ! I have a good research done for conversion of He-219A-0 (G9 + FK) and got a big picture (greater as my TV!!) from a former fighter pilot from these Nigth Figther Squadron. So I have had in result a absolute correct nigth figther camouflage with help of digital tests on my computer:
