  1. Supermarine Spitfire Vb Airfix 1:48 The Spitfire hardly needs an introduction, an iconic war machine and graceful lines satisfying the technical theory that ‘If it looks right, it flies right’! With around 6000 aircraft produced across the various sites, the Mk.V was the most produced version of the 20,000+ built. Coming in to service in 1941, it incorporated many of the improvements developed in the Mk.III, however instead of using the planned Mk.XX Merlin which was in short supply, the Mk.45 with a single stage single supercharger was used as it could easily be fitted to the standard f
  2. Hello everyone Here is one of three 1:144 Focke-Wulf Fw 190Ds in fictitious schemes and/or variants I built back in 2013. In this case, it's a Platz Fw 190D-9 kit in an MTO scheme representing a fictitious machine from 4.JG27 based in Italy in 1945. The Dora never served in the MTO and I thought (correctly) that it would look great. The kit was built OOB and fully painted, weathered and varnished with brush. The JG27-specific markings (emblem, number, etc) came from a Sweet Bf 109F kit. Thank you for looking and all comments are welcome as always Miguel
  3. Ju-88A-11 1:48 ICM (48235) The Ju-88 was designed as a schnellbomber in the mid 30s, and at the time it was faster than current fighter designs, so it was projected that it could infiltrate, bomb and exfiltrate without being intercepted. That was the theory anyway. By the time WWII began in the west, fighters had caught up with the previously untouchable speed of the 88, and it needed escorting to protect it from its Merlin equipped opponents. It turned out to be a jack of all trades however, and was as competent as a night fighter, dive bomber or doing reconnai
  4. Hello all, I'm currently researching the Vokes filter for my Hurricane IIC build. None of the plans seem to fit the filters I see on the period photographs. Also it would appear to have slight differences between the filters. Maybe some were field replacements and others factory-installed? I have also seen the words 'Aerovee' or 'Aero-Vee' associated with 'Vokes'. What are they? Brand name, variants? I'm counting on you Hurricane fans to shed a light on that matter. Thank you for your help, Cheers, Quang
  5. Hello Everyone, I've decided to do these wee ones as a starter for this GB (I'm STILL waiting for my P-47's), these will be nothing fancy and straight out of the box builds. Not that there is much aftermarket stuff for Hurricanes in 1/144. These models where previously built by Speedman back in October last year for the BoB GB. Mine wont be as good as his, but I will give it a bloody good go! Onto the pictures... I have absolutely no idea what Yuki-kun is saying and the same goes for NASA-chan. Dont ask me to read what the box says either except for the obvious. Got to love t
  6. I remember reading the reviews for RoG's all new Ju88 back in 2011 when it came out. The reason I recall the reviews so clearly simply because they were unanimously positive, I'd go so far as to say 'glowing' every single one of them. Now my usual 'fare' is 1:48 post-war aircraft and 1;24 NASCAR stock cars, and the occasional 1:35 AFV, so a 1:72 WWII medium bomber is a couple of steps outside my normal comfort zone, but over at Modelers Alliance we decided to have a 'Bombers' Campaign/Group Build, so I thought 'why not ?, let's see what all the fuss was about'. Also, I really like the Luftwa
  7. Bf 109E-7 Trop Eduard 1:48 Weekend Edition If you have not heard of the Messerschmitt Bf 109 then were have you been? The E-7 variant incorporated the developments of the E-4 with Armour and structural improvements, the change from MG FF cannons to the MG FF/M and the "square" canopy. In addition it introduced provision for an optional 300L drop tank, the first time the 109 would carry a drop tank. Alternatively a bomb could be fitted. The E-7 entered combat at the end of August 1940. A total of 438 E-7s would be built. The Kit On opening the box for this weekend edition the modeller i
  8. I recently posted my Spitfire Vb. Here Is the 109F. Some Unhappy with the canopy and I'm hoping to attempt a different approach with my next build. I'm still not happy with the finish. I think that none of the mistakes right at the end where I am perhaps into much of a rush to finish the model. On this bold tried some new techniques on the undersurface. Despite having looked at a number of photographs I turned down the exhaust staining and the overall weathering for this build. I found myself in Hobby Craft with the wife and spotted some place in the bridal section. This makes for super
  9. After realising that I participated in over 200 posts I have yet to present a model for inspection. I have a Hasegawa Hurricane and Airfix BF109f on the bench. I finally completed my FW 190-A3. 9 So this is my actually my second completed model. it is also my first attempt at some sort of base. I started the model just over two weeks ago and was in a rush to finish it last night so that I could present it as a gift to a young Chinese led that I have been helping prepare for his IELTS test. a few weeks ago we were practising the "listening exercises" and all I think of that the time w
  10. Here are some photos of a build of a BF109E I bought a little while ago. I've followed some astounding builds on this "work in progress site" which I can't compete with (especially the Skyraider!!) but I hoped that some of you might be interested in a less expert build. I've included some fabric seatbelts and have done some pipework and cables with lead wire I got on line but it is essentially out of the box. Thanks for watching and I'll post the finished article soon.
