Colin W posted a topic in Prototypes, Experimentals, World Firsts & Record Breakers GBHi Chaps, Well I have never managed 2 in a GB before but here I am going for number 3. I'm not sure if I'll finish as I'm on holiday for the start of July and I'm away for work 1 week as well so only really 2 weeks to get this done. Its been to the top of the pile a few times and gone under again but with 3 weeks left its about the only 1 I'm likely to get done before the deadline. This has been in my stash for many years as I thought it was the twin engined one when I bought it and was probably a bit disapointed when it arrived. The other ARBA kit I has was the Gloster Whittle which I built back in 2006 and was a great kit for its time. Special Hobby brought the Whittle out soon after so this will prompt some mainstream guys to produce it. The box, also seen with a picture on the lid. I built the Airfix Bedford MWD last week while deciding whether to start this or a Meteor. Fills the box or would do if it was a smaller box! 6 pieces of resin, 11 bits of pewter and 2 canopies. How hard can it be................! Will make a start this week end. Colin W
Good evening all, I have decided to jump in with this GB. Over the last few weeks I broke my elbow and have generally been quite 'meh' about model making so I need something to get me going again. Now I know next to nowt about this aircraft type but saw this kit in the LHS for little more than a tenner. Here will be my build The moldings do look very nice and being modern Tamiya hopefully even I can make a half decent effort! So here are the kit shots. I haven't decided what option yet, there are 3 7/JG26 looks like blue underside and green / violet (?) Upper 2/ JG 27 sand/blue with mottled effect And finally Major Helmut Wick of JG2 looks like green/grey upper and blue lower So looking at my paints I have (All RLM) 76, 79, 04, 71, 02, 70, 72 Now not being an expert I reckon I have the blue (76), sand (79) and yellow (04) insides (02?) Leaving just the option 1 and 3 uppers. Not sure if I have what tamiya call grey violet (AS4) but what would AS3 (grey green) relate to? Or their mix of RLM grey and khaki or olive drab and khaki refer to. I am hoping this will be my Biggers headache lol Hope to get this kicking off by the weekend. Cheers now Bob
Hi Everyone, I have seen this kit on several forums and I really want one. Especially after seeing this picture Does anyone know where I can get one ? Especially if it is in stock. I really want one for the SciFi GB which starts in a few weeks. Rick
