Like most of us I'm finding it difficult to stay on track with my modelling projects. Between work and family life the time is at premium and so I've signed up here a while ago to post some of my work and hopefully keep focus on a single project at a time lost cause I know but I shall give it a try nonetheless. First up is a 1/48 Eduard Weekend Edition Bf109E-1 (84164). It's not a new kit and it has it's issues from what I've been reading but it should build up fairly easily. I really just need it to get me back into the swing of things as I've had very little time on the bench in the last few months. I've picked a few extra bits that should make it easier on the eye without overcomplicating the whole process: Eduard PE dedicated to this model (49651) Eduard Masks (EX439) Brassin Wheels (648058) A choice of either SUPERFABRIC or the new'ish on the market STEEL Seatbelts (49081 or 49098) - any suggestions will be welcome Painting will be in the box art scheme using MRP paints. I want to experiment a little and use sliver primer as a base for scratches and weathering... we shall see All of it together: Obligatory sprue shots: Canopy parts are very nice and clear: Minimalistic decals typical of weekend boxings: Instructions - I've already marked the parts that I won't be using as I'm doing it closed up: Superfabric vs Steelbelts - I got the first a while ago thinking that short of fiddling with buckles on standard fabric ones, they will look the best. Now that I've had a look and a little play on a side with the steel ones I'm quite keen to give them a try. They are super thin, the paint seems to hold on to them and even though they aren't fabric, they look nicer to the eye with the shadows printed, etc. I'll try and snap a better comparison photo between the too if anyone's interested. Any and all input, experiences, etc. will be most welcome! A couple shots of the extra weekend PE - only after starting the build I managed to get a better light and shoot a macro photo so figured I will post it up here as well as it gives a better rendition of how the colours look. Last but not least - brassin wheels And here is the "First Cut" shot I've seen it done somewhere ages ago and quite like the idea - even though it's difficult to remember about it in the excitement of a new build. I've started on the build a little already and will post up more photos soon. Thanks, Marek
Hi everyone, My entry for this GB will be the Eduard Bf 109E-1 in 1/48. This is my first Britmodeller group build so I'm pretty excited and eager to get going. The box shot, And the contents, still wrapped up and shiny before I get my thick mitts on it, Will build pretty much out the box but I may try and add a little detail to the pit. Cheers....
