  1. 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

  3. 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

  6. 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!

  7. 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 righ

  9. 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 &am
  10. Hi guys, This is my recent entry for the ongoing Battle Of Britain Group Build. It's Airfix's excellent 1/48 Bf-109E built as an E-3 flown by Walter Scholtz of 3/JG53 when he was shot down on 30th September 1940. I really enjoyed building this kit and will definitely be buying others. Here is the link to the build:- http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234986206-bf-109-e3-airfix-148finished/ And here are the pictures, hope you like her. Thanks for looking. All comments and criticisms gratefully received. Craig.

  13. Hello all! This is my latest model, a Messerschmitt Bf 109E-1 built from the 1/48 Airfix kit. I have replaced the prop+spinner (Eduard), canopy (Eduard), wheels (Academy), wheel wells (Eduard etch), exhausts (Quickboost) and shortened the landing struts. The cockpit has an Ultracast seat, a Quickboost gunsight, and some leftover Tamiya parts. András
  14. Hello Guys, Because I have to wait 8 weeks now for the missing part and damaged part to arrive from Revell Germany for my Revell 1/32 Spitfire Mk.IIa, I'm now going to start a new kit that will be my 2nd entry into "Battle of Britain 75th Anniversary GB" both on here and on YouTube- hosted by Ukscalemodeller and CharlesScaleModelling. This is Eduard's "Weekend Edition" of this model. You can buy what is called a "Profi-Pak" version that is more glitzier, that includes a full color booklet, photo-etch and more color/marking options. This kit was kindly given to me by a modeling buddy and so
  15. My first model and diorama made some time last year after over 20 year break. I've made it as a kind of exercise to test the materials and techniques that I wasn't even aware of when assembling kits as a kid (pre/post shading, weathering etc.). Brush painted (haven't had a airbrush yet) with Mr Hobby paints and weathered with pastels. I've done some photoshop work on two first pictures to blend the diorama with the background to look like an old photo. I haven't touched the model or diorama itself.
  16. Hi folks, I tend not to do build logs on BM, but thought I'd show a photo of my current wip, the Airfix Bf109E, as I made a somewhat disparaging remark about it on my profile. It is a nice wee kit (the emphasis being on the 'wee', for those of us whose origins are North of Hadrian's Wall), but has some really annoying engineering / fit. Now I can bollix up a kit with an ability matched by few others, but when bits of a new tool Airfix don't fit off the sprue, then I get a bit annoyed. The wing uppers and lowers didn't match up and the lower edge of the LE slats sat proud of the forward edg
  17. Made this one a couple of weeks ago for a Battle of Britain groupbuild on a Dutch forum. It's the Tamiya E-4 kit OOB except some seatbelts and the decals. Hope you like it Erik
  18. Revell 1/32 Messerschmitt BF109G-10 "Erla" "Final Reveal" There are two options available with this model and I chose to do the version as flown by Ace of Aces Luftwaffe Pilot Erich "Bubi" Hartmann who was credited with the highest number of aerial victories ever recorded- 352! This is another great newly tooled 1/32 scale kit from Revell of Germany (GmbH); very nice crisp clean moldings with great details including recessed panel lines, rivets, a great cockpit, undercarriage, movable flaps, elevators, ailerons and rudder! The decals are cartograf and go down very nicely indeed. My only is
  19. So I have it in my head that I would like to make a Bf109E-1 using the Bf109E-4 kit. I have a few decal options, but am yet to decide. Most probably something using RLM 70/71/65 scheme. So while my rag wing Hurricane is in paint dry mode I made a start. The most significant visual differences required to represent an E-1 are the earlier style canopy, and the wing cannon needs to be removed, with machine gun holes slightly inboard from the cannon position. Also the cannon (access ?) bulges need to be removed, with new access panels engraved for the MG's. Squadron Vac form canopy (early
  20. Hi all, I am new on this forum and this diorama is my biggest work, so far. The basic kits were the Hasegawa's old bf 109E and the Tamiya reissued Opel Blitz. During the building I used a lot of PE and detail sets, such as Eduard, Part, Hauler, SBS Model! Hope you like it! Thanks or watching! Cheers, Matyi from Hungary
  21. Hello Guys, This will be my second Revell 1/32 Scale model that I have built and will go alongside my first one- the Revell 1/32 Arado AR196A-3 Seaplane in a diorama that I have planned. This kit retails in my Local Hobby Store for $27.50, but I had a $5.00 coupon to use making it only $22.50 (about 15.00 quid in the UK), which at first hand appears to be great value for money! Erich "Bubi" Hartmann was the Ace of Aces with the highest number of air victories that totaled 352, which earned him the "Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds". Introduction to the
  22. I got these 2 kits for my birthday last year. These will be OOB. Bo***cks I am wanting to get rid of the gun barrels. Well no PE. Started on Saturday of the Queens Birthday long weekend as the weather is not great. I have to work on the Monday of the long weekend so it is not a long weekend after all. This is the painting scheme from the Airfix kit that came in a box of 3 kits "Aircraft of the Aces" in which you get a Spitfire Mk1a, NA P-51D Mustang and a Messerschmitt Bf-109E-4. The Italeri sprues. Airfix sprues. Progress so far. I have painted the cockpits and have applied
  23. In the last years I have built many models Bf 109 in scale 48. This is now my first speed-building. I found by clean up my office a Hasegawa kit. It is very old - from the 88ger years of the last century. So I decided to quick assemble this kit and make a extraordinary eyecatcher camouflage. In the collection "Jagdfliegerverbände der Deutsche Luftwaffe" Volume two I found this template for my kit. The JG53 is known for exceptionally camouflage in this time. Here ist my kit template: I reconstructed with help of images from other machines in this fighter squadron in exactly this period,
  24. Hi, Let me invite you to a Messerschmitt shelf of my cabinet. In fact I already posted one from this shelf - the Italeri Me 110 D in fake Iraqi markings from Mosul revolt, 1941. Anyway - I would like to start with Me 210/410 family. I have two models of this set. Both I made together in 1998. I used here a brand new those days Italeri Me 210 A and ... - old Frog Me 410. And some (or a lot?) of scratch work. The Frog Me 410 was made by me for the first time when I was perhaps 13 - and it was not acceptable for me any longer. So I broken it to the pieces, immersed in NaOH and removed all pa
