  1. Hello guys; After my last model built (Bf109E7 1/32 Eduard), I spent a little time working in this beautiful kit. I used interior and surfaces sets by Aires, Barracuda mainwheels, flaps by quickboost and Mastel PL barrels. Xtradecal decals was used. Cheers!

  3. Hi all! After really enjoying the Hawker Sydney group build and seeing everyone's builds come together, I thought I'd get involved here too. I've had this Airfix kit hanging around for a while. Looks a basic but good little kit. Not half as nice a the Eduard 109s, but then again, looks a lot simpler and should be a nice quick build. This is the exact aircraft I shall try to reproduce. The main reason I bought this kit is the beautiful scheme! I shall see how I get on with it... Here are the sprue shots: First up is work on getting rid of pesky ejector pins... circled in red Which has been done here: And then I got the cockpit tub together. Detail is ok in here, but nothing too special. She's going to be a quick-ish OOB build so I'll leave it as it is and have the canopy closed. I also got a few other items together: So, time for a quick dry fit. So will need a little filler at the rear wing root, but other than that it looks excellent. Liking this kit! Next stage was to undercoat all the RLM 02 areas in black. And then paint them RLM 02, shading where required. Excellent... But I've now discovered it should be RLM 66 in the cockpit areas of the Bf109E-4! Bit if a problem... I don't actually have any. What I will do is use Tamiya German Grey. I think that will close enough with the cockpit down. We'll see. Ok, more soon! Cheers, Val
  4. Eduard 1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109G-4/Trop. This is one of the options in the Bf109G-4 Profipack edition, which comes with mask and cockpit etch. This kit was a nice one to build with no major fit problems. The etch on the tropical filter was a bit tricky to fit but that's about it! That was only because you had to bend it in a curve to fit, the rest of the etch was easy to use. It's nicely detailed and I even tried a bit of pre-shading on the top but I've tried to keep it subtle. It's painted with Vallejo Model Air and while it won't win any competitions, I'm quite happy with the finished model. If you build in 1/48 and you like Bf109's, you really should build some Eduard kits! thanks Mike
  5. Hi all. This will be my first WIP post and will actually be a bit of a catch up, since I started this build back in February and have made progress up to the point of painting. So, if anything glaringly wrong is found in these next few posts, it may be too late to fix! The subject aircraft this Bf109E-4B of 5/JG51 depicted below from the Kagero BoB Volume 3 Topcolours series. The rather unique inscription on the side says "Achtung Anfänger" which translates to a rather ambiguous "Caution or Beware Beginners". It could mean "if you are beginners, watch out!" or it may be "we are beginners so stay clear!"?The other interesting feature is what appears to be an unpainted (or lightly painted) cowl covering the MG17s. Recent discussions I've had Dave (tango 98) has led me to conclude that the cowl was likely a factory replacement part and that Kagero's interpretation that the cowl was painted entirely in RLM 65 is probably correct. The kit used for this project is Eduard's 1/48 Bf109E-4 which is rather nice. The cockpit and other areas are enhanced with penty of nice PE details including the pedals, scuff pads and oil cooler grilles. Eduard have provided a duct for the latter, a nice detail, so you won't see up into the engine. I didn't get Eduard's additional PE detail set but I went and embellished the cockpit walls a bit, adding oxygen tubing on the starboard side and a scratch built throttle quadrant and levers on the port side. The trim wheel and O2 regulator have been added here. Eduard would have you glue the trim wheel chains to the sidewalls but I decided to glue them to the floor assembly. I'll leave it at that for this first post and chuck some more pics up here soon. Thanks for watching. Andy
  6. Hi chaps Back after a while, it's always nice to post something finally done!! 1:48 Hasegawa Bf109G-2 Black four, Kroat JG52 from the eastern front 41-45 It's not straight out of box, it includes a resin cockpit and Aeromaster decals. I did some riveting too, which is quite easy on a 109. It was a fun and quite quick build, the plan is to make room for the other newer 109s from Eduard and Tamiya, Hasegawa being a bit obsolete... but still in my opinion it still is a nice little kit. Feel free to comment
  7. Here's a Messerschmitt Bf109 you don't see that often, the G-1. The G-1 and G-2 were the first of the G series (obviously) and the G-1 had cockpit pressurisation but the G-2 did not. AZ Models make a reasonably decent series of 109 kits, many of which you can't get from more mainstream manufacturers, so far 109 fans, these kits are brilliant. This one is from JG54 'Grunherz' and I believe it's one that Walther Nowotny flew. thanks Mike
  8. Fine Molds Bf109G-2/R6. The G-2 was the non pressurised version of the G-1 and was the main production model until they swapped to the G-4. This is one fitted with the R6 modification, which consisted of a pair of MG151 20mm cannons in pods under the wings. This gave a useful boost to the firepower, for shooting down bombers but reduced speed and agility for combatting enemy fighters. The Fine Molds kits are the best kits around for Bf109F/G and K models with similar quality to Tamiya and Hasegawa but you do pay extra for it. Despite their cost, anyone who is a fan of 109's and builds in 1/72, should get at least one of these excellent kits! This one is painted up as a JG54 Grunherz aircraft, in a fresh coat of winter whitewash over the camouflage. Please ignore the wonky headrest, I only noticed it after taking off the canopy mask!
  9. We're now stocking the latest Eduard kits - the 1/48 Bf109F/G Trop 'Afrika' Dual Combo set and the all new 1/72 MiG-21MF Profipack! We've run out of the Bf109 set straight away but we can get more for next week - please let us know if you want one! We still have a couple of MiG-21's in stock but there's more of them on order, so if you want one and we've run out when you try to order, please let us know, so we can increase our order! http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk thanks Mike
  10. Hi everyone, old build, used aires cockpit and awesome figure sculpted by Mike Good cheers
  11. We've added the forthcoming Eduard 1/48 Bf109G-2/G-6 Finnish Dual combo and 1/48 Spitfire HF Mk.VIII to our future release section. They are provisionally priced to beat the Hannants 10% pre-order price and there's a good chance that price might even go down a little if we can get them even cheaper! You can register your interest by leaving your email address in the box provided on each listing and we'll email you when they are in. Please only do this if you are genuinely interested in buying from us though! We're getting quite a lot of people telling us they want something and then they don't buy it from us. http://mjwmodels.co.uk/edk11114-148-messerschmitt-bf-109g-2g-6--mersu-finnish-dual-combo-ltd-ed-6227-p.asp http://mjwmodels.co.uk/edk8287-148-supermarine-spitfire-hf-mkviii-6229-p.asp Also, due tomorrow at last, is the 1/48 Bf109G-14 Profipack and 1/72 Fw190A Grunherz dual Combo. thanks Mike
  12. What do you do when there are 2 excellent colour profiles in the box! Easy, Romanian to port and German to starboard! Hope you like it.
  13. Wolf-Dietrich Huy, (2 August 1917-13 July 2003) was a German Luftwaffe ace and one of the pilots decorated with the Iron Cross during World War II. Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross and its higher grade Oak Leaves was awarded to recognize extreme courage in battle and its military leadership. In August 1942 he returned to JG 77 after recovering from his wounds, and shortly after his unit was transferred to North Africa. October 28, 1942 he shot down his first Spitfire Egypt. Huy was shot down by a Supermarine Spitfire Vc of No. 601 Squadron, piloted by P / O JH Nicholls (an additional 7-kill ace) October 29, 1942 on the area of El Alamein. He survived the crash and spent the rest of World War II as a prisoner of war. Source: Wikipedia The kit is the familiar AZ Model, here in the G2-R6 version. Apart from the cowling too thin (in profile) and canopy narrower than the fuselage I'm not aware of any other errors / problems. For coloring I chose to follow the AZ instructions: RLM 70/71/83 trunk of lower tail / 76, white band in the fuselage, white wing tips. But first photos with sprue, selected profile: Fonte: http://www.airwar.ru

Spiral mask Paints and colours used: All MRP, apart from detail and another that made its way into the photo booth. Again, MRP used throughout.

  16. Hello guys; This is my latest build: an Eduard Emil 1/32. It is a honest kit with good assembly. I used this followings adds: - Eduard Brassin Engine Set; - Eduard Brassin MG 17 Mount; - Eduard Brassin Wheels - Aires interior resin set; - Kagero and kit decals; - RB Productions belts and; - Master Barrels (MG17). I used a mix Tamiya paints. The version chose is a Black 10 JG27, Libya 1941. This aircraft was painting with a desert camuflage, probably Italian paints. I had dificult in use Eduard Brassin Engine set. I don't understand, but the engine fittings is very bad. I spent three months in this job. All steps are posted in this Brazilian group building forum: http://webkits.hoop.la/topic/gb-08-bf109e-7-trop-eduard-1-32?page=1 Thanks for watching! Cheers!
  17. We're waiting for our preferred supplier to get the latest Eduard kits as they will be plenty cheaper than Hannants. We've put them in our future release section with the prices we expect them to be. The kits are the 1/48 Bf109G-4 Profipack and Hellcat Mk I Weekend. The original 1/48 Spitfire Profipack (IXc Late) Profipack has been re-released and we'll be restocking on them too. The 1/72 Spitfire IX triple set (Boys are back in town), I think is out later in the month and it's also in our future release section with provisional price. If you are interested in any of the new kits, please visit the new release section of our website and enter your email in the box provided. If you want more than one of any kit, you will need to let us know that, so we can get extra in. http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk thanks Mike
  18. And we're off......Well, now that I have managed to complete the Vampire for the De Havilland GB - I can crack on with the Bf109. Below is the kit that I am building: I'm just going for OOB on this one and so far the kit has proved to be excellent and is going together without any hassles. I've made a start by beginning with cockpit and managed to get that completed today - pics as follows: The kit is going together like a dream - in fact I don't think I've ever had two fuselage halves go together better than with this model - the tolerances make for a perfect fit. I'm currently busy bringing all the fuselage, wings etc together so I'll look to update with more photos once I've made some more progress. Kris
  19. Right folks - she's done - this is my entry for the BF109 GB. All completed now and built totally out of box with the addition of some quickboost exhausts as the kit ones were poor and the addition of stretched sprue aerials. Hope you enjoy and as always your comments and feedback are much appreciated. The WiP for the build can be found here
  20. 109 over Greece (1/48 Airfix Bf109 E4) Here's my contribution to the GB folks - hope you enjoy

    The idea is to do the same plane in two moments of its operating life in the ARR. It will be always "yellow 35", a BF-109E-3, just arrived in Bucharest in the spring of 1941 and then in the vicinity of Stalingrad in November 1942 when it was shot down with his pilot Adj. Av. Marin Eftimescu, from the Russian counter-aircraft. The two kits, virtually identical, are ParcModels Bf-109E3/4 1:72(ex-ICM). Some pictures:
  22. Eduard's June releases have arrived at MJW Models and they have a nice healthy discounts on the prices!

So check them out now on our website! www/mjwmodels.co.uk thanks Mike
  23. Eduard's June kit releases are now on our website for really good prices. The single 1/72 release is the Profipack version on the Mk XVI bubble canopy, which is more good news for Spitfire fans. There's 3 new 1/48 kits including a Bf110F Profipack, another variant of the Bf109G-6 (weekend edition) and finally for WW1 fans a Roland C.II Profipack. http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk/eduard-kits-for-backorder-386-c.asp thanks Mike
  24. I built this Airfix Starter set 109 for our club's build a model in a day. This was a couple of years ago, we haven't done it for a while. Start at 9am on a Sunday and finish by 430. The first year a couple of guys adjourned to the local hostelry at lunchtime but no one repeated that mistake subsequently. Anyway this was built and painted with the suplied paints within the time limit, though didnt place in the results. You may be able to spot the tail strut that's stretched sprue as the Village Hall Wooden Floor Monster stole the original. Cheers Will
  25. The latest batch of Eduard kits have arrived today at MJW Models - see the list below for details 1/48 Bf109F-2 Profipack £20.40 1/48 Fokker F.1 Weekend £14.40 1/72 Avia B.534 Early Dual combo Profipack £19.10 Note how the 1/48 Bf109F-2 is over £7 cheaper than at the big H!!! Also we have an issue with broken parts on the Fokker kits and we will be contacting Eduard and our Suppliers about it in the morning. thanks Mike
