  1. Bf-109G-6 | 1/72 | Hasegawa Ylikersantti (Staff Sgt.) Hemmo Leino | 1/HLeLv 34, Kymi, Finland, June 1944 Finished this one on 5/31/2020. It is one of a two-in-one Hasagawa "Finnish Aces" kit my wife gave me for Christmas. The G-14 in the kit became Erich Hartmann's "White 1" (https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235075175-bf-109g-14-172-hasegawa-erich-hartmann-white-1/) From the Eduard instructions: "Hemmo Kulervo Leino was born at Helsinki on April 4th, 1921. He received flying training in 1939-41 at was posted on September
  2. Finnish and SS Figures SBS Models 1:35 SBS Models are getting a great reputation for their wonderful idiosyncratic aircraft which are mainly in 1/72, as well as their updates and modification sets in for both aircraft and military vehicles. They also stock another range from Hungarian company The Bodi who produce a quite extensive range of figures in 1/35 and 1/48 scales. The three single figure sets being reviewed here are produced in dark grey resin with some very fine details which will need some very careful painting to pick out. The three are:- Finnish O
  3. I continue to post models made by me. This time Takom 1/35 ITPSV 90 Marksman. Enjoy watching!
  4. 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 writt
  5. 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
  6. 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 ac
  7. 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 buil
  8. 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!
  9. 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 categor
  10. 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.

  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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 th
  14. 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. Royal Class edition of the new tool scale plastic kit of Bf 109G in 1/48 scale. Box contains: plastic and photo-etched parts and for two complete models of Bf 109G in variants G-2, G-4, G-6 and G-14 (premiere release of
  15. 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 a
  16. 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
