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.
