  1. Alrighty, here's my latest completion for the year; the AZ Model 1/72 Bf 109G-4 kit built as Finnish Ace Eino Ilmari "Illu" Juutilainen's "Yellow 2", serial number MT-222. Juutilainen flew this aircraft after he transferred to LeLv 34, scoring 15 of his eventual tally of 94 kills. Werk-Nummer 13523 was delivered to Finland on the 16th of May 1943 and was a reconditioned aircraft - although it was officially a Bf 109G-2, it had a G-6 wing with the humps on the inner wing above the landing gear bay to accommodate the wider tyres of the latter variant. Re-serialed MT-222, it was written off on the 10th of March 1944 at Kannas with a total of 84.45 hours on the clock. Paints are Humbrol and Sovereign Hobbies and the decals are by InScale for the individual markings, Techmod for the roundels and the stencils are a mainly the kit items with a few from the InScale sheet. Re-used WIP Shot! All finished! With the other two Small Axis 109's I've already posted: Now that I have a few of these AZ kits under my belt all I can say is that they're not bad, but do need work. In particular the G-2 and G-6 certainly benefited from deepening the nose as shown by Barry Numerick over on the 72nd Scale Aircraft forum. I used the same method, although I only shimmed the wings by 0.5mm and sanded down the wing roots on the fuselage to match. Comments welcome! Mike.

    Finnish MiG-21BIS chaff pod questions

    I plan to convert my Eduard 1/48 MiG-21BIS to one of the ones that the Finnish AF modified into a reconnaissance fighter. I can probably scratch build the modified VICON 18 camera pod that they used, but they also carried some kind of chaff/flare pods underneath, where the RATO units would've been installed. There is one picture of aircraft MG-114 in the book MiG-21 in Finnish Air Force, but it's hard to see what type of pod it is. Here's a closeup of the picture, can anybody help me with more info? It almost looks like an ALKAN 5081, like the one the Super Etendard SEM carries, but wider & flatter. I wonder if it is a pod made in Finland? http://www.defense.gouv.fr/var/dicod/storage/images/base-de-medias/images/ema/afghanistan/06-10-08-afghanistan-3-mirage-2000d-succedent-aux-super-etendard-de-la-17f/sem-en-vol-1/291702-1-fre-FR/sem-en-vol-1.jpg Larry
  3. Here's a quick, and a bit sad, story. I bought this not long after it first came out, the box says 1991, so must be around 25 years ago. I got as far as assembling the airframe and began to paint with my new fangled simple Humbrol airbrush which just didn't work out as I had hoped, made a complete mess of it and put it away, along with the 109-E I bought around the same time. Feeling a bit dejected with my modelling efforts as an 'adult' I got rid of the unmade kits I had and concentrated on wargaming stuff which doesn't require such attention to detail. The 109's ended up being given to an acquaintance of mine, who had taken up modelling, for him to finish if he fancied it. I got back into model making with a vengeance early last year, but previous to that, said acquaintance had passed away suddenly and I found myself in the possession of these and a couple of other kits from his estate. So, here we go. A couple of months ago I stripped the (Humbrol enamel) paint off and cleaned up and primed the airframe, touched in as much as I could of the cockpit and painted the underside RLM 65 (Vallejo ModelAir). Also primed the prop black. So this is where we kick off with this GB, with replacement decals by Techmod to do a Finnish machine, White 3 MT-213, 2/HLeLv 24 and Fabric seat belts by Eduard. Hopefully should be straight forward to finish. I originally intended to mount the belly tank so had glued on the mount, but could not find a photo of a Finnish aircraft with one fitted so removed it and cleaned up the fuselage as best I could.
  4. Hi all here are some pics of my latest project, it's ICM's lovely 1/48 Dornier DO-17Z built and painted as a DO-17z-3 of the Ilmavoimatt (Finnish Air Force) and finished in a temporary Winter scheme. I thoroughly enjoyed this build and found the kit to have the right mix of detail and ease of build and can highly recommend it and also the decals by SBS Models which are superb. Anyway here are the pictures; If any of you haven't been along to the Radial Engines Rock GB (which I built this for) then I recommend popping along and having a look at the cracking models in the gallery and those still in wip, there are some great ones to look at. And if you like the colour scheme (and who wouldn't!) there is a Winter War GB proposed which I suggest you have a look at and sign up for. Here is a link to the build of her; Thanks for looking, and as usual all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Craig.
  5. Hello Everyone This is my contribution to this group build. 1/48 Eduard Bf-109G-6. It has been started but I hope this is not considered 25% I will replicating the Sharkmouth Finnish BF-109 from the Aeromaster Augsburg Eagles Part 1 set These are aftermarkets I will be using for this build As you know the overtrees only come with plastic, so there will no cockpit decals, and I will use a set of paper seat belts. Thank you and stay tuned!
  6. I would like to show you my latest finished kit, it took about 5 months to complete. It was the first short-run kit for me. The following enhancements were done: - riveting - drilling out in and outlets and the exhaust pipes - thinning the trailing edges - added more detail to the cockpit Gunze paints were used: H77, H405, H325, H329 For chipping I used AK Worn Effects fluid. WIP: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235017047-morane-saulnier-ms-410c1-azur-172/ It won Gold medal in its Master category at Moson Show 2017. http://www.flickr.com/photos/martinhronsky/sets/72157682949580035

    Finnish AF BAe Hawk questions

    I am building a BAe Hawk of the Finnish AF, using the Tamiya 1/48 Hawk Mk.66 "Swiss Air Force" kit (89784). The kit ejection seats don't look TOO bad, other than no seatbelts, but I am wondering which of the following aftermarket ejection seats would be the most accurate: Pavla Models PAVS48020 - Martin-Baker Mk.10A Pavla Models PAVS48027 - Martin-Baker Mk.10H I already have the VICON recce pod and the Russian missiles that the plane will be carrying.

  8. The market seems to be quite lean towards figures of Finnish origin, but recently ICM did release some winter clad troops, and in January Miniart announced plans for a tank crew of five, which would of worked nicely for my project. Be that as it may, they aren't available yet, so I've embarked on a plan to convert a trio of figures. Judging from photos, as well as from reading, the standard Finnish uniform was highly influenced by pre-war Germany. Summary of m36 tunic differences: -an overall grey colour -collar, a simple stand and fall type with no lapels like it's German counterpart - 6 buttons along the front (German tunic had 5) - hip level pockets had no pleats There was one huge difference with those manning captured Soviet equipment. Those equipped with radios (and still in working order), were also used by Finnish forces. They would adopt the Soviet tanker headgear as these had the headphones built right into the helmet. So armed with this knowledge, I set about searching for possible candidates. My aim is for a 1941 setting, so I will be sticking with the regular tunic, though a leather version (along with pants) was also made available. The heads would be quite easy, as both Hornet and Ultracast produce sets of five. I chose the latter, partly because they are a Canadian brand; Next was to find suitable bodies. Obviously they would be German, and details I was particularly looking for were jackboots, no shoulder belts, 4 pocket tunics. The best, no surprise to me, were from Alpine: So while await for these to arrive, I'll continue on with my little Polikarpov I-5 build. regards, Jack
  9. Hi! Just finished this Myrsky (finnish for Storm). It was the only finnish-built fighter to serve during WWII. I painted the kit using Gunze colors. Any comments appreciated
  10. Hello All, Here's my Revell re-box of the Frog Bristol Blenheim, lightly converted to have retractable skis: Sorry for the wierd "daylight vs electric" lighting effect, but I just couldn't get a decent shot yesterday. Work in progress thread is here. I was inspired to do this example by the picture shown here. Here's my reproduction of the shot: So I need to source some spinners (I think the Revell re-box of the MPM Wellington II may provide these) and build a trailing aerial dispenser. Since the photo was taken I have rigged the top aerial - I'm now wondering if the trailing aerial superseded the wiring on the top one. I've had a blast doing this model. I detailed the cockpit, replaced the turret glazing with the Falcon one, added oil coolers and detailed the undercarriage/skis, but other than that it builds well from the box and looks very good alongside the new Airfix one. The main difference to my eyes is that the Airfix nose is much wider. I will post a comparison picture when I take one. Thanks for looking, Adrian
  11. Hi guys, This will be only my second WIP build thread as I've only just returned to the Hobby this year after about 25 years of absence (my teens being the last time I did anything). It's a fantastic kit with some very cool extras listed below. I'm very keen to make the best of it and hope my ability (or lack of) doesn't cause too many tears.

He downed a Soviet Yak-9 fighter flown by Lt. G. F. Nizhnik on August 5, 1944 over Narva Bay. This Yak was the only aircraft downed by the guns of MT-451. The aircraft was delivered to Finland on June 23, 1943. The former German Werk Nummer is visible on the rudder. Two underwing cannon pods were mounted and there was no artwork on the rudder at that time. The fledgling eagle was painted later on. MT-451 was written off after an accident on August 25, 1947.
  12. Hello fellow modelers! I have completed the Revell's 1/35 Leopard 2A6/A6M. It was a wonderful build and Revell can be really proud of this kit. Everything was a perfect fit, except a few minor detalis. The whole WIP can be found here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234979652-135-revell-leopard-2a6-help-needed/. Built OBB, except for the markings and the tow rope which were a disaster and were replaced. I decided to paint my tank in finnish colours with finnish markings. I know Finalnd does not have this version of the tank though. For the weathering I used artists oils and pastels, aswell as filters from Mig. Every picture shows this tank new and clean, so I decided to go with something different. The mud os from Mig washes and the splashes are made with a toothbrush and a grinded pastel chalk. I believe this is my best model yet, unfortunately I don't own a good camera. Last but not least, I would like to thank the community and especially IgorS, for all the help provided during the build. Cheers, Jaka

    Finnish Wartime Photograph Archive

    Hi All, David Aiken posted a link on the Hyperscale Plane Talking Forum about the Finnish Wartime Photograph Archive it is well worth visiting, the images further below are some of what I found following ten minutes of putting in search terms on their website. Please note however that you need to use Finnish terms since English will not work although manufacturers names like Brewster, Fiat, Fokker Focke, Gloster and Morane for example bring up some results while Hawker does not. It is also worth noting that these images at least the ones I have seen are around 4900 pixels across one side are also watermarked and are only 8 bit sRGB jpg files. If you are after better quality files lest watermarks contact details are provided for the archive. To start people off I suggest the following search terms will bring up some worthwhile results; Suulajärvi, tyyppisiä, hävittäjiä, Suomalainen, syöksypommittajia & Lentolaivueen amongst others. The following images are all worthy of a seperate discussion in their own right however to help get them out here quickly I have posted them without any explanatory captioning so please enjoy as have I. All images SA-kuva. Cheers, Daniel. More images to follow.....
