  5. I decided to post this here and not on my local Facebook modeler´s group because you lot seem more, polite and civilised. The Strike Witches anime is based on an alternate reality, where the Earth has been invaded by an alien race known as Neuroi in 1939, and the only ones who can fight them effectively are young girls with magical powers called witches, who use machines called Striker Units to fly and fight the Neuroi in the sky. The girls and their Striker Units are based on famous WW2 aces and aircraft. One of the characters of this anime is Gertrud Barkhorn from Karlsland, who uses an Fw 190D-9 as her Striker Unit. I got the inspiration to build this model after seeing Hasegawa´s release: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10531089. Since I knew I wouldn´t be able to get it, I got into the task of getting aftermarket decals and spares to make this version. And yes, I have the Dragon 190D-9 with decals for Gerhard Barkhorn´s aircraft, but the model is covered with imperfections, so I´ll use the decals of that kit on the Hobby Boss one. I used Revell Aqua colours, Skymodel decals for Gerhard Barkhorn´s markings, and Eduard´s Iron Crosses from a Bf 109F-2. Stay tuned, because there´ll be an Me 262 painted in bright red from the same show in the future.

  7. Hallo again This is my Focke Wulf 190 F-8 from Revell in 1/32. All painting and insignia are as explained in: Happy modelling
  8. Fw.190A-5/U12 Gun Pods (648398 for Eduard) 1:48 Eduard Brassin The diminutive but agile Fw.190 saw many things strapped to it due to their Fuhrer's mindset that tried to make every successful (and some of the unsuccessful) aircraft all things to all men. One such addition were a pair of turret-like gun pods, each carrying a pair of 20mm Mg151s in the pods and leaving out the wing mounted MG-FFs, presumably to save weight. As usual with Eduard's resin sets, they arrive in the familiar Brassin clamshell box, with the resin parts safely cocooned on dark grey foam inserts, and the instructions sandwiched between the two halves, doubling as the header card. Inside the box are two pods with four barrels in grey resin, a small fret of Photo-Etch (PE), and a decal sheet for one particular example that flew with these pods attached, with a white tail and swooping red stripe over the front fuselage. Building the pods is simple, with the two barrels slotting into the apertures in the front of the pods, a small PE part attaching under the front lip, and a tiny lifting eye on what becomes the underside. A scrap diagram shows the location for the finished pod, just outboard of the main gear well. The instructions are unusual, as they are made up from a full sheet of A4, folded into quarters to accommodate a full page of profiles from all four sides of the topic in hand. The standard A-5 kit decals are shown in black, while the new decals are pointed out in red to assist you. I believe that this option was previously available through the Bunny Fighter Club, as you can possibly see the letters BFC on the decals. Review sample courtesy of
  9. My first attemp to an A-8 Fw 190. I think it came out pretty well. Decals were more brittle than usual, the red bars breaking a bit while I moved them into possition. They were touched up with Revell red 36, which was a surprisingly good match to the decal´s colour. Spinner spiral was hand painted. Markings are for Ernst Schröder´s Fw 190A-8.
  10. Here´re the promised photos of my Ta 152H from Revell. This kit is a reboxing of the old Frog kit from the 70s, and it shows it mainly in the raised panel lines, flash, and the (flashed) hole for a stand. The only troublesome area of the kit was with the tailband: Firstly I positioned it correctly by sheer luck (I wasn´t looking at the instructions), and secondly, it was long enough to cover the entire rear fuselage and it curled, without any chance of straighten it again. The instructions also show an incorrect placement of the inner landing gear doors, if you ever build this kit, make sure to follow the painting instructions to place the inner doors. The wheels were glued in place, and the caps were left in their sprue, together with the pilot. The propeller was designed to spin to the left, so I opened another hole to be able to make it spin to the right. I also wanted to preserve the raised panel lines, so the aircraft unions weren´t filled with putty, most visible on the right hand fuselage/wing section.
  11. More or less in a month, I´ll be having my Winter recess (after an exam in which I don´t have anything to study from aside for a bunch of schemes thrown out there without any words), and from the seven kits I have on my stash, I picked this one to become sixth build. The model itself is over 40 years old, from the now gone Frog. It doesn´t have much flash, but it does have some moulding defects, and the propeller was designed to turn to the wrong way. The kit comes with only one decal option, Green 9, Willi Reschke´s aircraft. I saw on a video build for this aircraft that the only area with gaps will be the wing/fuselage join, so I may use filler on said gaps (I don´t want to use any, to preserve the panel lines).
  12. I saw on my LHS Dragon´s Ta 152H-1, and I would really like to get one of those elegant aircraft for my collection, and I wanted to know the opinions of those who´ve already built it. I´m looking opinions regarding: 1) The propellers, do they have tabs that put them with the correct pitch (main concern)? 2) Overall fit. 3) Fuselage/wing join. 4) Engine/fuselage fit. 5) Ease of work with the photoetch pieces. Thank you all, I´m keen on reading you.
  13. I finished the aircraft yesterday, after fighting it a long way and cutting my finger. The model was originally going to be painted as Walter Nowotny´s Fw 190A-5, but I didn´t measure the yellow rear band correctly and had to start over to avoid making a mess. But, I learned my lesson, and I correctly measured the areas where the white were to be added, so their fit was perfect. Then, after decaling the entire aircraft, the right hand landing gear melted thanks to Revell Contacta, so I added some CA and backward pressure to hold it in place. I did the same with the pitot tube. I didn´t have these problems with the other two Fw 190s I built. I used the kit decals and the upper crosses from an Aeromaster sheet.
  14. Good night guys, I bought this model on Facebook this Thursday, and went to pick it up today to a reunion of plastic modellers. I plan to build this Fw 190A-5 as Walter Nowotny´s aircraft (the other option is for Egon Meyer) while using Eduard´s painting instructions. Decals are of the old Hasegawa style, with an ivory colour, just like the ones in their Japanese Army boxing of this aircraft. I´ll post the progress of the build as soon as I begin, most likely tomorrow.
  15. Good night guys, This could very well be my first Eduard kit, but I would like to know what construction tips could some of you give me to make this build as pain free as possible. I´ve read several reviews, most state how detailed the kit is and how well it looks when finished, but only two point out which areas requiere extra attention to avoid ruining the model (for example, attaching piece K20 before gluing the wing spar). The model would be built with everything closed up (I thought of not adding the guns, cutting the muzzles and gluing them after the model is painted). I would also use the instructions of the Profipack version since they´re more complete and have the camouflage scheme in full colour. The model in question. Thanks.
  16. My second Fw 190, I was able to not break anything this time, and correct a molding error Hasegawa had made on their right hand fuselage (the area designed to take the mounting tab of the right hand wing has too much plastic, and if it´s not corrected will end up with a step in the right fuselage/wing assembly. I removed plastic with a sandpaper and the Xacto until the fuselage sat flush with the wing). The decals were of the old Hasegawa style I´ve read so much, of an ivory colour, but they conformed perfectly to the panel lines and over a mottle with too much paint. Next time I won´t add mottling where the decals go.

  21. Happy Easter Folks! Here is my latest build, or should i say completed build. The old Airfix Fw 190D, not the original tooling from the dogfight doubles set but the "new" one from 1979. A very simple kit with little in the way of internal or finer detail. Nevertheless i think it still captures the line of the Dora to a tee. I have finished it in one of the kit options from JV44 the protection staffel which flew standing patrols over the airfield when the Me 262's were landing or taking off. The markings remind me of the old WW1 flying circus planes with its bright red undersides and stripes. Talking of which, came as transfers but i made a mess of them and had to resort to painting then on. As usual the model is brush painted using revell and humbrol acrylics. Thanks for watching, all comments welcolme. Cheers, Greg

  23. Hello All, After 6 months, a change of airbrush, a lot of swearing and lots of "what the heck am I doing"? here is my interpretation of Hans Dortenmann's mount in 1/144 scale. This is not the first one of these I have done and they are exceptional kit to build. oooops forgot to remove the canopy mask..... Happy modelling all, Happy to take questions. Ian
  24. Afternoon all. Just finished this one for the FW 190 group build. Finished with Gunze Mr color and Skymodels decals. Cheers Allan
  25. Evening All. Just finished the Aoshima Ta 152 tonight. This one has been in the unfinished box for a couple of years and I finally got it finished. There was no real reason for me stalling on this build as it goes together really well. I think I lost interest when I was painting it. Cheers Allan
