  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel of IGM Cars & Bikes. Hope you like it! With kind regards from Vienna, Austria Roman Schilhart

  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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.

  14. 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:

  16. EDIT: this thread started as an entry to the BoB GB. Since I didn't manage to finish in time, it was moved to the KUTA GB. ----------------------------------------------- Dear All, this is my third and last entry in the BoB GB: Helmut Wick's Messerschmitt Bf 109 E4, as flown on October 1940. Wick was the most successful German fighter pilot at the time, as he reached 56 confirmed victories in 168 combat missions, before being himself shot down over the sea, near Britain, on 28 November 1940, at the age of 25. During his career he was awarded several important military awards, including the Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes mit Eichenlaub. The aircraft I'm building was the following one: As can be seen, painting this camouflage will be quite a challenge... The kit itself is the one from Tamiya and comes with the correct markings for the above profile. The picture shows the box, sprues, decals and the PE fret from Eduard I'll be using for better detailing the cockpit (mainly). The kit itself has a good amount of detail but I want to take it to the next level. I've already planned the build in some detail and hope to be able to finish it relatively quickly. This is important because I'm also building Airfix's Defiant (WIP here) and Do 17z (WIP here) for this GB. It's quite ambitious for me, especially because I'll be using a lot of PE, which will be a first... Anyway, as said in my other posts, I'm still finishing three British Phantoms for the Phantom GB, which ends on the 26th, so I don't think I'll be able to start the BoB builds before that. Thanks for looking. Cheers Jaime
  17. This is my 3rd imcth "Fine Structure" model. These are without doubt the best models kits available today. Forget plastic. Get brave. Give them a try!
  18. Hi everybody; back wit an AC build after some figure painting. This time is the Academy 1/48 Me Bf109 G6, which is actually a Hobbycraft reboxing. The main goal of this build is practicing for German Mottle camo painting - first time for me - as I Have a Eduard FW190 in my stash but don't want to risk a messy painting on that, rather do it on this cheap kit. For this reason, I'll try to make a quick and simple build ... (I'll try, I promise ... ) On with the pics: boxart that is also the scheme I'll be doing, Hartmann's Yellow 1. Sprues: Not much of a detail, and definitely no riveting at all. Decals: I'll try to avoid them as much as possible, masking and painting for the most part - but we'll see. So, after the box inspection, I started removing the main parts from the sprues to clean them up with my trusty Electrical Toothbrush Sander and doing some dryfit Wings assembly: panel lines line up properly, no gaps whatsoever. Fuselage assembly shows a couple of issues, as you can see in the above pics, but nothing that some filler and some TLC couldn't sort out. Before test fitting the two halves, I've also inserted the instruments panel and the main part of the cockpit, no trouble there. Also for the fuselage, panel lines match properly. After a bit of sanding, the wing assembly goes in pretty well Some refining needed in the wing root area, and at the trailing edges close tho the roots Gun cowl: this is, so far, the part that I like less There is some shape issue, plus I don't like how the gun barrel (sort of) looks like when in place. I think I'll have to rework that area a little, still trying to figure out how. In the meantime, I decided to glue the barrel to a steel rod: Tail planes: port side one cliks in, the starboard side is loose ... Canopy: the three pieces are transparent enough for me, but do have some minor fit issues. The windshield also has a little stress line, another thing I'll have to figure out how to fix That's it for now. Comments, tips, suggestions, criticism welcome, as usual Ciao

  21. Hello and thanks for your interest, this is another marking option from AZ Model's latest G-10 "Diana" kit. It represents 'Gigi', a machine of II/JG 52, in the closing weeks of the war. I could not find a historic photograph of this machine, so I had to relate to AZ Model's paint instructions and a color profile in a Kagero book (JG 52) respectively. Photo etch parts from Brengun, vacu canopy from Rob Taurus. Painted with Gunze acrylics. Weathering with pastel chaks and artist's oils. Greetings from Vienna!

  22. Hello Everyone, This is my third build for Karen at work. This time I have gone for the "enemy" and provided the BF110, before anyone asks or notices, I am not allowed to put any swastikas on the aircraft. Complete crock I think but I can live with it. I used an Eduard Zoom set for the interior and mask for the canopy, both I will be using again, but not relying on them. Oh I also had an Eduard Brassin MG15, which I also like as well and I will be using the other one that I have. I'm not too sure on the colours, but this is what Vallejo suggest and I am aware of the cock up on the right engine with the wash. I am going with an oil leak for that one Well here are the pictures of said aircraft. For some weird reason, Flory Washes do not like Vallejo RLM66 (or 65 I can not remember).. it's had 4 coats of gloss over it and it still sticks and refuses to budge. Could of done better with the join line and the wash. But more things I will take with me to the next model. That 3 I've done... wow I am in danger of clearing a whole shelf of models in my man cave Comments welcome Kind Regards, Dazz

  24. Hey guys, after some fails this year (try and error building) I started to build the 1/32 Eduard Bf 109 E-1 Weekend Edition with Spanish Masks from Montex. There are some smaller mistakes I did (was a bit too fast in some points of the build) and I still have to learn how to handle and paint the canopy correctly because the Montex Mask left some touches at the Canopy. This learning phase should then lead into the build of a Tamiya A6M2 Zero in 32 scale. However (still not finished) if finished this will be the first model in about 13 years which I do complete. This is also a bit a quick & dirty build as I wanted mainly to train my airbrush skills for a one color-plane. So There are small gaps here and there and she may not be perfect build, but this was not my personal task for this baby. So I started last thursday with the build and here is what I did so far: 1. Fuselage Inside and Cockpit Elements primed with black and added RLM02 2. & 3. First time building HGW Fabric Seatbelts, took a while for the first belt but it is just great! 4. & 5. & 6. Main Cockpit parts in place (except upper instrument panel). Wash and dry-brush done as well as subtile chipping at some corners. I decided to not add any Instrument decals or so because the Eduard Instruments are very badly done so I don't wanted to invest some decals at it. The Pro-Packs do Include Photo-Etched Instruments. Also you may note that the Rudder-Pedals are missing - again PE Parts within the Pro-Packs so it is totally missing in the Weekend Editions of the 109's. 7. First try of handling those small parts in the pit. I "glued" them with Clear-Coat in the end. 8. & 9. Upper panel and Revi installed, as I said above, I decided to not use any decals / add-ons for the Instruments. 10. Base-Coat of white applied, pre-shading done and added the base colors for the markings. 11. & 12. Added the Montex Mask for the Insignia and the Fuselage Markings 13. & 14. Painting progress starts with some RLM02 to the Fuselage first and RLM65 to the underside 15. To get back the pre-shade over the markings I added another layer of white and pre-shades 16. Removing the second color masks and add yellow paint to the spanish insignias and red to the fuselage smybol 17. & 18. & 19. & 20. Mask removed - isn't this nice?! In the second image the daylight reveals that I can be happy this far 21. I'm also very much happy with the pre-shades 22. & 23. Masking of the sides for the black stripes 24. & 25. Black added and...voila! Mask seems to have been good 26. Current state of this morning. So all the main parts are now colored, I'll add the main landing gear as next step and lookout to work on an antenna for the 109 with EZ Lines. Then some of the stencis will be added (not all, as I didn't see any photo with every stencils in place - mostly only the basic 87 Octane Fuel and Medi-Kit Markings). Then a wash and some weathering will follow. Hope you like it
