  8. Heinkel He.111H-6 Upgrade & Mask Sets 1:48 Eduard - For ICM Kit Promptly after completing a well-loved series of newly tooled Dornier Do.17/215 kits in this scale, ICM have now turned their attention to the Heinkel He.111. Eduard's new range of sets are here to improve on the kit detail in the usual modular manner. Get what you want for the areas you want to be more of a focal point. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between. Nose Interior (49904) Two frets are included, one nickel plated and pre-painted, the other in bare brass. A complete set of new layered instrument panels and side consoles that will be prominent within the greenhouse are the primary parts on the painted set, with new rudder pedals; seat details; canopy internal structure; additional instruments; gun sights and extra details, and even a bomb sight also supplied. Zoom! Set (FE904) This set contains a reduced subset of the interior, namely the pre-painted parts that are used to improve on the main aspects of the cockpit, as seen above. Whatever your motivations for wanting this set, it provides a welcome boost to detail, without being concerned with the structural elements. Radio Compartment (49905) Two frets are included, one small nickel plated and pre-painted, the other larger one in bare brass. It involves a heavy upgrade to the level of detail within the compartment, adding racks for ammo; stowage boxes; racking; partial bulkheads; a huge range of radio boxes and other equipment; gun sights and ammo embellishments; a framework with instruments around the top gun hatch, and a base for the nearby antenna. Exterior (48957) This set is provided as a large fret of brass, with an additional smaller one. This creates a new internal skin for the box-shaped bays, with additional structural details added throughout. It also extends and details the firewall behind the engine that is seen from within the bay, adds some small parts to the landing gear legs, as well as brake hoses. There are parts for the bombs and their braces. Seatbelts STEEL (FE905) In case you don't already know, these belts are Photo-Etch (PE) steel, and because of their strength they can be etched from thinner material, which improves realism and flexibility in one sitting. Coupled with the new painting method that adds perceived extra depth to the buckles and other furniture by shading, they are more realistic looking and will drape better than regular brass PE. As well as the pilot's four-point crew belts, you also get two sets of lap belts for the other crew, plus a set of webbing for the top gunner's position. Masks (EX598) Supplied on two sheets of yellow kabuki tape, these pre-cut masks supply you with a full set of masks for the rather pane-fully faceted canopy (see what I did there?) and other glazed parts, with compound curved handled by using frame hugging masks, while the highly curved gaps are in-filled with either liquid mask or offcuts from the background tape. In addition you get a set of hub/tyre masks for the main and tail wheels, allowing you to cut the demarcation perfectly with little effort, plus a landing light mask. Review samples courtesy of
  9. He 280 (8068) 1:48 Eduard ProfiPACK Edition Even though the He 178 was the worlds first aircraft to fly under turbojet power alone it was met with a great deal of indifference by the Luftwaffe. Herman Goring did not even attend the first demonstration flight for the authorities. Not to be deterred by this Heinkel decided to press on with jets and developed the He 280. This was to be a twin engined design, this was to feature elliptical shaped wings and a dihedral tail plane with twin fins and rudder. It also introduced a tricycle undercarriage. In another first the aircraft would be equipped with a compressed air powered ejection seat. The first prototype was completed in the summer of 1940. Even though demonstrated to the authorities, their response was still lacklustre. The following two years were frustrated by engine development problems. This lead to the rival BMW003 being selected for the aircraft. Indeed the 2nd prototype was even fitted with Jumo 004 engines. Ultimately in 1943 Erhard Milch who was in charge of Aircraft Production cancelled the project in favour of the Me 262. It was reported the Ernst Heinkel remained bitter about this decision until his death. The Kit Eduard first issued this kit on 1999 and this is now its third re-boxing. This profipack boxing comes with mask and PE in the box. Construction starts in the cockpit area. The base parts for the seat are added along with the control column. Pe replaces the instrument faces on the side consoles. Rudder pedals are added. The main instrument panel is built up from plastic parts, PE and a film. PE seat-belts are added to the seat. The main wings are made up, these are of conventional upper and lower parts for each side. Different slots need opening for different decal options. The main fuselage is made up by adding in the cockpit and nose wheel bay. Bunny pops up to remind us to add nose weight but forgets to say how much! The wings are then added and the tailplane complete with fins and rudders. Next up the engines are added to the wings. Depending on with prototype you want to model these are either Heinkel's 8a's or Jumo 004's. Once these are made up they are added to the wings. Construction then moves onto the main gear. A tow part tyre is added to a simple strut and the retraction arm is added. At the front a two part wheel is added to the main strut and its retraction strut is also added. All gear door can then be added. The canopy can then be added. Either a single part or two part can be added as needed. Masks are supplied for painting the canopy and wheels. Decals Decals are in house from Eduard and should pose no issues. There is a main sheet and a supplemental sheet for the stencils, markings are provided for three examples, the 2nd Prototype, the 3rd Prototype, and the 8th Prototype; all are painted overall RLM02. Conclusion This is a welcome re-release from Eduard in a ProfiPACK box. Recommended. Review sample courtesy of

  13. Hello Folks, As my A-10 is currently stalled whilst I work out how to resolve a few issues I thought I would start on another kit. Just to stop the dust from settling on my workbench of course! Its the Trimaster kit of the Heinkel He162A-2 in 1/48 with a resin pit by Aires, etch from Eduard and Montex masks. I bought this kit and the associated aftermarket as a 'job lot' at Sword and Lance in Darlington in 2014. And thought it would be a nice quick and easy build to keep me occupied. It was the box picture and the resin bits taped to the lid that caught my attention (the opportunity to add extra details to cockpit and engine!). The box was still sealed in it's cellophane. Anyway, here is the obligatory in box shot... 'Only three sprues included in the box? hmm that's not much for your money' thought I and then I decided to have a look inside the little blue 'packing' box on the right, and these fell out... Sorry about the poor photo I didn't realise it was part in shadow until too late. I'll include better shots later in the build. Etched detail parts for the cockpit and engine, and a set of PE hinges (to assemble!) for the cowlings. There's also white metal landing gear, ejector seat, and even a cast nose weight shaped to fit in the nose! The remainder are bits of brass rod, wire, tube etc, for the other details. I wonder why the original owner bought the resin pit and Eduard etch? Speaking of which, here's the aftermarket... And a better picture of the resin 'pit before cleanup. Well, these things don't build themselves, so better get started.... More to follow later Al (Edit to correct typo's)
  14. I've started this one over a year ago and finally have the time to finish but here it is. Somewhere in Russia, probably just before the Battle of Kursk. The models used: Heinkel He 111 H-6 - Revell 1/72 Ju 87G-2 Stuka 'Kanonen Vogel' - Academy 1:72 Kubelwagen and Kettenkrad from the Academy 1/72 WWII Ground Vehicle Set Figures from Preiser and Revell The 'making of' thread is available here. Hope you like it. Thanks for watching.
  15. Hello Finally I had some time to continue the work on my Ost-Front scene. I've finished the models some time ago: Ju 87G-2 Stuka 'Kanonen Vogel' and Heinkel He 111 H-6. Both in 1:72 scale. Now it's the time to build the diorama for them. The plan is something like that: So, here is what I've done so far: Ju 87G-2 Stuka 'Kanonen Vogel' from Academy Heinkel He 111 H-6 from Revell Perspex box base with both of them arranged: Some SC250 bombs from Czech Masters (6) and one left from Messerschmitt Bf-109 kit: Some SC1000 bombs. Four again from Czech Masters and two from the Heinkel kit. They are a little bit bigger. Not sure which are in correct scale but I've decided to use all of them. The sledges to transport the bombs I've made from matches. Cut, glued, filed, airbrushed, drybrushed and finally weathered with washes. Here is how they look with the bombs: And finally Kettenkrad to tow the sledges and Kubelwagen for pilots (who are not ready yet). Both from Academy kit. The diorama will have some boxes, barrels etc. plus of course ground crew servicing the planes and the pilots resting and waiting for the mission. Thanks for watching.
  16. I fancy building a Heinkel 111 I said to my eldest yesterday,"I,ve got the big scale one going nowhere" he replied, next day the behemoth is dwarfing my work table.Now big projects usually are my downfall(USS Fletcher and Bonne Homme Richard to name two) so hopefully it's third time lucky,he got the kit for £19:99 when Modelzone closed which was more than a bargain,reviews of the kit are generally favourable the main gripe being the beautiful rivet detail on the wing's are absent from the fuselage there is more than enough detail in the box and that's fine by me.I know my WIPS are usually five pictures and finished so I will try and make it a bit more detailed than usual. Here's the box and contents. And as a size guide here are the main component's with a 1/48 Spitfire for comparison. This as far as I remember the second 111 I,ve built the other was Matchbox's many moons ago.see you soon!
  17. Good afternoon all! It's taken me since Christmas and has been a bit of a cursed build (see below) but here is my first ever He 111: This an aircraft of Kampfgeschwader 55 'Greif' and fought in the Battle of Britain and is actually part of the Airfix BoB 75th Anniversary pack. Built out of the box but with the eduard interior pack and masks for the canopy. I refrained from adding rivets on this one but tried out some new techniques which some I'll use again, some I won't. Pastel weathering for exhaust fumes was a new one for me as I usually airbrush these on. This worked well on the top of the wings, particularly where I laid down white, then grey then finally black pastels to create a heat damaged paint surface and then the usual soot from the engine. This didn't work so well underneath as the lichtblau showed every mistake and worse still, the matt coat started coming away where I tried repeatedly to get the effect I wanted. I ended up correcting with oils as the pastels simply wouldn't stick and I wasn't going to matt coat it again but this now looks overdone for me. Another new technique was stretched sprue for the antenna wire which i'm not completely sold on as it's a little thick for 1/72 and saggy; I may replace at some point but that's it for now. So why has this been a cursed build? The canopy out of the box was warped but good 'ol Airfix sent me a replacement very quickly. The eagle eyed of you will notice I've sprayed more of the canopy on the top two panels than I should have... this is to cover up fogging caused by Tamiya green top. Not that I'm blaming this but lesson learned, PVA glue from now on. Throughout building I had multiple incidents from needing milliput to fill gaps, a split fuselage which needed re-gluing and refilling, poor fitting fuselage windows which aren't the clearest meaning a lot of the interior extras can't be seen very well. I've also lost part of the rudder mechanism and the rudder itself is sitting a little low which I only noticed once I'd started painting. I didn't follow the instructions properly on the tail flaps which meant I had to perform quite a bit of surgery on them to get them looking ok. Here's some of the WIP and more pictures. Hope you enjoy! JB Finally, here she is with the rest of the BoB set:
  18. I've just completed my 1:72 Heinkel He 111 from Revell, a second part for the diorama (the first part was this Stuka). It was very nice build without the major problems. In fact the set is so good that there were no problems at all. You can see the progress here Here are some pictures of the finished model. More when the diorama is finished.

  20. Hello all and a Happy New Year! It's that time of year again and I always enjoy putting up a Yearbook of my latest models (though not so much Photobucket being terribly slow and crashing multiple times). Despite having a fairly busy year including moving to a new full time 9-5 office job since May, I have still found time to do plenty of models as usual That's what weekends are truly for! I've had three main themes running this year mostly; WW2 Luftwaffe, Cold War Soviet and WW2 and Post War RAF, but there's the odd other thing in there too. Now, my lists are saying I've completed a stupidly huge 124 models this year, but as I have to sell most of them to make space for more, here's a photogenic list of what's left starting from January... January Italeri / Zvezda 1/72nd Mikoyan MiG 23ML Flogger Iraqi Air Force February Italeri 1/72nd Caproni Ca 313 Italian Air Force Revell 1/72nd Junkers JU 87 B-2 Stuka Luftwaffe March Hobbycraft 1/48th Dornier DO 17Z Luftwaffe April Revell 1/72nd Junkers JU 87 B-2 Stuka Luftwaffe Italeri 1/72nd Savoia Marchetti SM 82 Canguro Italian Air Force May Italeri 1/72nd SAAB JAS 39A Gripens - bottom Swedish Air Force and top Hungarian with HAD decals June Monogram 1/72nd Dornier DO 17Z Luftwaffe Italeri 1/72nd Dornier DO 217 K-2 with Fritz X Missiles Luftwaffe Italeri 1/72nd Junkers JU 188 Luftwaffe Revell 1/72nd Focke Wulf FW 200 C-3 Luftwaffe with Fritz X Missiles July Revell 1/72nd Junkers JU 88 A-4 Luftwaffe PM Model 1/72nd Sukhoi SU 21G Flagon Soviet Air Force KP 1/72nd Sukhoi SU 7 BKL Fitter and Mastercraft 1/72nd Sukhoi SU 22 M3 Fitter Soviet Air Force Academy 1/72nd Mikoyan MiG 21 F-13 and KP 1/72nd Mikoyan MiG 21 MF Fishbed Soviet Air Force Trumpeter 1/72nd Ilyushin IL 28 Beagle Russian Air Force AMT 1/72nd McDonnell Douglas F 15E Strike Eagle Israeli Air Force August Revell 1/32nd Messerschmitt BF 110 G-4 Nightfighter Luftwaffe Hobbyboss 1/72nd Messerschmitt BF 110 C-3 Zestorer Luftwaffe #1 Hobbyboss 1/72nd Messerschmitt BF 110 C-3 Zestorer Luftwaffe #2 Hobbyboss 1/72nd Messerschmitt BF 110 C-3 Zestorer Luftwaffe #3 Airfix 1/72nd Hawker Hurricane Mk I RAF FROG 1/72nd Bristol Blenheim Mk I RAF September Supermodel 1/72nd CANT CDRA 1007/bis Italian Air Force Airfix 1/72nd SEPECAT Jaguar GR 1 and Italeri 1/72nd SEPECAT Jaguar T 2 RAF Airfix 1/72nd BAe Sea Harrier FRS 1 and Airfix (old tool) 1/72nd Hawker Siddeley Harrier GR 3 RAF Revell 1/32nd Hawker Hunter FGA9 RAF Matchbox 1/72nd Panavia Tornado F 3 RAF October Italeri 1/72nd McDonnell Douglas F 4 Phantom (masquerading as an RAF 64 / 228 Sqdn Aircraft) Italeri 1/72nd McDonnell Douglas F 4 Phantom (masquerading as an RAF 19 Sqdn Aircraft) Italeri 1/72nd Panavia Tornado GR 1 RAF Zvezda 1/72nd Sukhoi SU 24M Fencer Soviet Air Force Zvezda 1/72nd Sukhoi T 50 PAK-FA Russian Air Force November Heller 1/72nd Dassault Mirage 2000N Armee De L'Air Revell 1/72nd McDonnell Douglas RF 4E Phantom "Tigermeet" Luftwaffe Revell 1/72nd Blohm Und Voss BV 222 Wiking Luftwaffe Revell 1/72nd Heinkel HE 111 H-3 Luftwaffe December Heller 1/72nd Potez 631 Armee De L'Air Airfix 1/48th Supermarine Spitfire Mk Vb RAF Airfix 1/48th Supermarine Spitfire Mk Vb RAF Revell 1/48th Supermarine Spitfire Mk XV Royal Navy Hasegawa 1/72nd IAI Kfir C2 and Airfix 1/72nd Dassault Mirage III Israeli Air Force ...and that concludes my output for another year on the production line, see you again this time next year! All the best for 2017!
  21. Picked up from a show for a fiver. Against all odds this unloved, unwanted and forgotten old kit found itself completed, unfortunately the landing gear was missing so it had to be built wheels up. Like with most of my Matchbox builds the panel lines have been enhanced but other than that it was built mostly as nature intended. As I wanted the Matchbox scheme that I remember from childhood the original Matchbox decals were chosen over the better ones included in the recent Airfix kit. As with their Me109 kit a much lighter shade of blue was used by Matchbox for the Romanian national markings. The kit was a joy to build, but perhaps one is enough for the Matchbox collection. If you have enjoyed looking at these builds, have fond memories of Matchbox kits or just fancy a challenge then why not join the vote for the 2017 Matchbox group build.
  22. Currently I'm working on an old Eduard kit of the He-280, the first jet fighter in the world, but which did not go into production and ultimately lost out to the Me-262. I found the kit online from an Italian seller and I think it's long OOP from Eduard. This version has Jumo engines just like the Me-262, as the original prototypes used an engine by Heinkel which was problematic and never performed as expected. I was a bit disappointed that this version of the kit did not come with resin wheels and a seat, plus photoetch for the cockpit as I believe an earlier version did. I started with the wings and engines, and I found them a bit tricky as there are no location pins on the nacelles, I guess because this was an early limited run type kit by Eduard. I added some basic sidewall and wheel well ribbing with some thin evergreen strips which went some way towards busying up a very plain part of the model. For the cockpit, I added a set of the new steel belts from Eduard, these I think are meant for a FW190. I also added some airscale generic photoetch levers for the throttles and so on, but not being able to find a photo of the interior of the He-280 I used a bit of imagination here! Some photos of the model put together, I found the seam lines to be a pain on this one, still an area I don't like (getting rid of seam lines!). Not 100% happy, but I think if I kept filling and sanding I'd have no plastic left! And now it's primered (Mr Surfacer grey 1200 from a rattle can). I've now pre-shaded it and the first coat of colour is going on (it's RLM02 Grau all over from Mr Paint). Not so sure about the preshading, I've been black basing instead on recent models and I think it's easier, but I'll see how this one turns out!

    What If Heinkels

    Evening, while building my 1/72 B29, I started looking over my shelf of doom as a distraction. Doing that I found the Revell boxing of the Hasegawa He 111 H-6 and ICM He 70 F-2, both in 1/72. One half painted, one ready for painting, I started thinking how to paint them, actually I thought a of a What If to let them stand out of the crowd somehow. I thought of asking here, if anyone knows interesting, colorful, distinctive or somehow different paintjobs or camoflages. I for example thought of a Japanese He 70 or a post-war Isreali He 111 but maybe you know something better. Thank you In advance Levin
  25. Hello folks, This is my very first post to Britmodeller. I've been a member for a while now and look at everyone's contributions everyday but have never posted anything myself. This is a trial run to make sure I get it right so bear with me please So here goes!! I've chosen the kit that I've just finished - the Revell He115 Seaplane - see below: I seem to have been drawn to seaplanes over recent months and have also completed an Arado 196 (maybe posts for another day). Back to the He115. The kit shows its age and I believe it's the matchbox kit that Revell re-boxed. The kit fought me in so many ways and tested both my modeling skills and my patience - particularly sorting out the huge expanse of less than perfect cockpit glazing!! However, I really enjoyed building this kit and I think there's something quite therapeutic about wrestling pieces into place every now and then to keep our modelling minds fresh. I'll apologise for the photos as they were taken on my phone in fairly poor light - I'm no professional photographer - something I'm going to need to work on. Hope you enjoy and any feedback and comments will be greatly received.
