Hi Guys, I just finished my Hasegawa 1/48 Fw190 A4, with the markings belonging to Hannes Trautloft, Kommodore JG54, Russia, at the beginning of 1943. It was built in parallel with an old-tooled Eduard Fw190A5, which is still in progress at this time. Anyway, I'm happy that I finished one of them and I hope you will like it. The entire build log is here, if you are interested to see it. Thanks for looking and cheers,
Here is a 1:48 scale Fw190 A9 that I finished quite a while ago but never posted here. It’s the old Dragon kit re-boxed by Revell. I have a few of these in the stash but had never actually built one before. Kit had the extra broad propellers and the cooling fan with extra blades as well as the A9 hood. Despite its reputation the kit went together well only the finicky fit of the nose/wings (6 parts coming together) being a bit of a challenge. Finished in the brown rather than green RLM 81 just for the pure hell of it. Aircraft belonged to Ofhr. Wilhelm Ade of 2/JG1 stationed at Twente airfield (NL) January 1945. He was the sole survivor of his unit when they got caught taking off 4th January. They were pounced by members of the Canadian 401, 411 en 442 Squadrons 401. Ade survived his crash and his period of time in hospital thereafter probably ensured his survival at a time when the Luftwaffe was being slaughtered. Decals form Kagero's JG1 Oesau (Pt II). I am slowly but surely getting my way through the aircraft featured in these books. regards Brian
This is at the moment merely a placeholder for a pile o' kits what have been languishing untouched for around a decade. I will get to these once I have finished with the accursèd Pavla Seafire, rot its socks. Kits include: Hasegawa 1/72 FW 190 A-7 'Oesau' w/Eduard etch - almost complete; Tamiya 1/48 FW 190 A-3 'OOB' - almost complete but the dihedral is crook so it needs to be pulled apart...; Hasegawa 1/32 Me 163 - early stages but with Milliput filler in cockpit to fill in the gaping pressure-releasing holes; Airfix 1/24 FW 190 A-5 - early stages but radial engine banks glued together; Hasegawa Misubishi J2M3 Type 21 Raiden w/Eduard PE set and Squadron canopy (? - might be for J2M5 Type 33 wot I also have an untouched kit of) - cockpit more or less completed but some PE levers unaccounted for recently on a quick checking o' box contents, relevant surfaces painted in Gunze 'Mr.Hobby(?) 'aotake'; Hasegawa 1/48 Spifire 'Mk IXc' - NOT! Fuselage cut into lots of tiny pieces prior to adding plasticard inserts to turn fuselage from a Mk V(?) to Mk XI per instructions on Hyperscale. Earliest of the kits started, and bumped to the bottom of the queue by those listed above, a collection of ICM Mk IX/VIII/VII/XVIs ans the recent Eduard IXe 'late version' (resin an PE acquired for this abomination, too; ICM 1/48 Bf 109 F (or K?) - end-opening box converted to top-opener and bits missing, some engine parts glued up; Accurate Miniatures 1/48 P 51-A: partially painted cocpit but attack w/ various thinners to remove the 'orrible lumpy paint job >shudder<; Tamiya 1/35 Land Rover 7 Ambulance - getting close to completion, but not appropriate to this a/c thread so this little 1976 gem will appear somewhere in BM's AFV section. Probably. I have the sneaking suspicion that I have missed some (started) kits, but can't remember what they might be. Realistically, the most appropriate kits for this kit are the smaller FWs. The Raiden is worthy of its own thread, given that (I think that) it's a really nice kit, and that it is a relatively stage in its 'construction' (I'm not known as the 'Fumble Fingered Fool' for nuffin'). And the Land Rover. The rest? Hmmm, well, there's always and and . Cheers, Alex. [ ] Sheep is in his byre and won't come out: says it's too cold even with his thick woolly winter coat.
Being at least partly responsible for creating what is now an 18-month old little chap, part of my fatherly remit obviously encompasses the finer points of aircraft identification. The trio below are all from the defunct Airfix 'Mini Kits' series of 1/100 unassembled, but pre-painted kits. I'm happy to report that 'Spitfire' is already a (very repetitive at the moment) part of his vocabulary. Exactly what to teach him as regards the FW is currently a matter of debate. cheers, Jason
First up the bombed out Ago factory showing Fw190s finished in late war colours, 5.18 into the film. http://resources.ushmm.org/film/display/detail.php?file_num=0364 Choose your colours! Second film showing the surrender of 2 JG6 Doras at Furth including the famous Blue 12, 1.10 into the film, surrender of a Ju87D 4.30 into the film also shown are P and C47s plus various armour. http://resources.ushmm.org/film/display/detail.php?file_num=5451. Again you'll find stills from these films in quite a few books. Tim.
