  2. During the recent Blitzenbuild over the Christmas period, given that you only have 24 hours in which to start and finish it, but spread over 3 days, I chose to do the PM Ta183. The build thread is below If you haven't taken part in a Group Build before, I throughly recommend it, picture of completed build below: Let me know what you think. Cheers Pat
  3. Ladies and Gents Having had an interest in Luft46 aircraft with the amazing concepts what better opportunity to bring them all together in one place with a dedicated Group Build. So what I hear you say is Panzer46 ? This is the AFV equivalent something that until brought to my attention by our very own @Enzo Matrix I was completely unaware of. Also Hikoki46 which is the japanese equivalent of Luft46, yes everydays a school day ! So spread the word and let's try for a slot in 2021 cheers Pat List of participants are : 1. @JOCKNEY 2. @Mig Eater 3. @Corsairfoxfouruncle 4. @Mike 5. @Mottlemaster 6. @Plasto 7. @German Armour ex Panther II 8. @Sturmovik 9. @Arniec 10. @Angus Tura 11. @Hockeyboy76 12. @trickyrich 13. @TonyTiger66 14. @Silenoz 15. @Robert 16. @Adam Poultney 17. @LostCosmonauts 18. @Dermo245 19. @SafetyDad 20. @Walter 21. @Kushan_Farsight 22. @Erwin 23. @nimrod54 24. 25. 26.
  4. I saw a new member (I think?) showing off his finished example the other day, and you know what a sucker for silly and unusual things I am. I picked one in 1:48 up from Brengun off eBay for as cheap as Cheapo McChips, and treated it to a PE set from the same brand because that cockpit with be SO visible won't it? Anyway - I thought I could use some of the paints from my Triebflugel build here to speed the process along, and as it's tiny weeny, it shouldn't take long to get done (famous last words!). I've put the cockpit together with its PE frippery, and scribed a set of lines in the cannon feed to give it a bit more detail. I've also lopped off the rocket exhaust pipe, as it was a bit soft, so I hollowed it out and fitted a length of aluminium tubing to replace it. I've added a backstop inside from strips of styrene, and will perfect the shape of the aft fuselage once it's together. I've also got a Master barrels Mk.108 barrel on the way too, as the kit barrel is a bit... stick-like. here's a quick shot of the parts laid out ready for primer on the cockpit and fuselage interior. Don't worry, I'm not abandoning the Spinny-thing just yet
  5. Here is my Revell 1:72 Messerschmitt P.1100 I built back in 2009. It represents Messerschmitt P.1100 "Red 2", Wk Nr 700831, of KG54, Luftwaffe, in 1945 (fictitious). Revell released this as a P.1099 but that is incorrect since the P.1099 had the engines moved back due to the centre of gravity whereas the P.1100 was the same but using the wings of the Me 262. This option of the kit (there was another release) comes as a one-seater whereas both projects were two-seaters but, since this plane was never built, you can get away with it as there could well have been a one-seater variant! The kit was built OOB. I only opened up the shell ejection chutes and blanked them inside. The kit was fully painted by airbrush. The main decals came from the kit with the KG54 emblem and swastikas coming from other sheets. Thank you for looking and all comments are welcome as always Miguel
  6. A fun project from beginning to end, only watered down because the weights in the nose got lose. It was brush painted in RLM 79/70/65. I still have to come up with an interesting Luft 46 story.
  7. This is my entry to the recent Blitzbuild Group Build. The kit is nice a simple, ideal when you only have 24 hours to complete the entire build ! The work in progress is below As the decals that come with the kit and the proposed colour scheme wasn't very inspiring I decided to try something a bit different. So having found some ancient FROG decals and with no respect for actual history at all, the Ho-229 was pressed into service with the Italian airforce, I hope you like it cheers Pat
  8. This kit was built during the "Blitzbuild Group Build" here on BM recently, for those unfamiliar this is where an attempt is made to start and finish a kit over the bank holiday weekend either in two 12 hour sessions or in one mammoth 24 hour session. With photos with time and date proof to show you are playing fairly. I chose to try to build the Unicraft Messerschmitt "Schwalbe" Luft 46 Resin Kit, which being the first resin kit I have ever built, was perhaps not the wisest idea I've ever had. However due to all the support and encouragement from other Modellers here on BM, it was completed within the allowed time. Started 27th August 2017 @ 17:11 Finished 28th August 2017 @ 23:12 Work in progress below This Group Build was brilliant with a really diverse range of models completed within the allowed time, normal Group Build times are months ! If you haven't taken part in a Group Build before I would encourage you to give it a go, it's a great chance to interact with other builders and often build something so deep down in the stash you had forgotten buying it Finished photos below, I still have much to learn with resin, so will not make the same mistakes with the next one, and of course take a lot more time ! Thanks once again for all the encouragement and humour during the build, it was greatly appreciated cheers Pat
  9. Scratchaeronautics is to release a 1/72nd Junkers unnamed ground attack project (Luft 46) resin kit Source: https://www.facebook.com/Scratchaeronautics/posts/1472262192806833 Preorder: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JUNKERS-GROUND-ATTACK-PROJECT-RESIN-1-72ND-SCALE-/252798865471?hash=item3adbfc903f:g:JJsAAOSwdGFYu-XE V.P.
  10. I finished this yesterday so here is the promised RFI. Here is the build thread. I thought this was going to be an almost out of the box build but in the end I added or modified the following: Modified the front undercarriage strut and made it so it could be added later on in the build. Added PE seat belts. Added some detailing in the front undercarriage bay. Replaced all the gun barrels with 0.8mm brass tube. Modified the turret guns so they could be painted separately and added later. Used instrument decals from Mike Grant. Added weighted effect to the wheels using heat. Extended the pitot tube with brass tube. Replaced the aerial mast with one from another kit. Added scratch build DF loop. Used Extradecal Swastika decals. Added navigation lights from clear sprue. Added wire brake lines. So nearly OOB then... Here you go: Its a very nice kit and a lot of fun to build, I hope you like it.
  11. This is my next project: The kit consists of two grey sprues: Although it says Revell on the sprues, this was originally released by Dragon in 1993. Some of the gates are quite thick but it does feature very nice engraved panel lines: There's also a single clear part and typically good Revell decals: With my pending new job work on this will be quite sporadic and drawn out. Bye for now, Nigel
  12. This is my new Luft 46 attempt. The kit from AZmodel is a typical modern short run one. Built OOB except for some elements in the cockpit, which are almost not visible. I've also added a twin underbelly 30-mm cannon and triple BR21 launchers under each wing from my spare parts box. This big heavy fighter must be heavily armed, as to my mind. The model represents the Gotha P.60D-1 flown by Oberst Felix-Maria Brandis, Tempelhof airfield, April 1947. P.60 size compared to Me-262 Thanks for looking!
  13. Here's another recent build, the Revell Ho229 (not Go229 as mislabelled on the packaging). More or less straight from the box, but with the inaccurate side panels removed from the cockpit bathtub, the voids underneath the exhausts filled and the Airwaves and Eduard photo etch sets employed to add detail. The guns weren't really visible after assembly, whereas the engines most certainly are. Curious how Revell decided to represent parts that were not apparent, but not those that were. Hope you like it.
  14. Ok it looks like I'm starting... well finishing a project/build I started about 15 years ago. Thanks to Nigel’s inspiration I’ve finally decided to drag this old beast out....was planning the build the Skyshark, but this’ll now have to wait a bit. As said this was started many years ago, but stalled because one of the engines went missing....either the cat eat it or SWMBO Mk. I threw it out! So it went to the rather large box of doom sort of forgotten. So after seeing Nigel’s wonderful build I just had to dig it out and try to finish it. A quick check of the parts showed that there was more than an engine missing, luckily these are all undercarriage doors. So after a bit of thought and half an hour of gluing my fingers together here’s what I’ve got, not much but a good base to proceed, a slap of filler and presto the second engine........well almost. As mentioned in the header this one will be modified, a modified WhatIf.....not sure what you call that! Anyway I will be mounting the engines on the top of the wings, roughly halfway between the centreline the indentation in the trailing edge. Engine layouts like the Horten 229, though not as flush as, a much more sensible layout than having one underneath acting as a giant Hoover! This well be a sort of longer term project, in between other builds, there’s not too much to done so hopefully won’t take too long to complete!
  15. Hello everyone, This is my first "Luft46" model, not a bad little model. Had some trouble with the nose fitting, but over all I am happy with it. Towards the end of the build I was rushing it to get it done. All painted using the hairystick. Hope you like it! Let me know what you think, first time that I think I have done a half decent wash on a model... Kind Regards, Dazz
  16. Hi, all I have noticed a lack of this model on forums so I thought I'd give it a go whilst I decal some Spifires. Also worth mentioning is the fact that the parts aren't numbered on the sprew, this lead me to having to keep referring to the instructions for any multiple parts to make sure the weren't number specific. And the funny looking T thing near the top right of the sprew shot is actually two peices, the control stick and the foot rest (pedals supposedly). On the location diagram in the instructions they are shown seperately. So you have to carefully seperate them. So far I have Pledged the canopy and managed to paint and assemble the cockpit, rocket exhaust and the fuselage halves. Next up I'll give the cockpit a wash and seal up the fuselage halves. Ashley.
  17. Hi all, The Bachem's finally ready.
