  1. I built this Airfix Starter set 109 for our club's build a model in a day. This was a couple of years ago, we haven't done it for a while. Start at 9am on a Sunday and finish by 430. The first year a couple of guys adjourned to the local hostelry at lunchtime but no one repeated that mistake subsequently. Anyway this was built and painted with the suplied paints within the time limit, though didnt place in the results. You may be able to spot the tail strut that's stretched sprue as the Village Hall Wooden Floor Monster stole the original. Cheers Will
  2. Ok so I have reached a stage in my modelling where I am thinking I may have sufficient airbrush 'time' served to have a go at some of the German WW2 aircraft I have in my ever growing stash! Whats put me off so far is the 'mottling' but I would really like to master this technique so can anyone give me any tips or point in the right direction on BM or anywhere on how to do this effectively. I should say I am using an Iwata HP-C + in terms of airbrushes (if that makes any difference). Any videos I can watch I guess would be most useful! thanks Chris
  3. Hi folk,s next winged project is a couple of Eduard Weekend Me109,s.I build my first Eduard 109 as the trop version and I loved everything about it so with my LMS knocking them out for a tenner I picked a pair over the last couple of months.I also picked up the Airfix club kit at King Kit and used it for the BoB GB leaving the decals free so what better schemes for them than the two in the Airfix boxing,so one will be in British colour,s (I love the yellow undersides) and the other in the lesser Known Japanese scheme (original Luftwaffe) which I think will look great with the Japanese Markings,should get a start tomorrow,here,s the two scheme's.
  4. Evening all, I picked up Eduard,s Me109 weekend boxing for the BoB GB last week and as I had never seen an Eduard kit in the flesh was blown away by the detail and general quality of what I found in the box,last on Friday I popped into my LMS for paint and as he had 10% off the range grabbed this "weekend" boxing for a cracking £11! I built an Airfix 109 in the sand over blue with green Mottling a while back and was very happy with how it turned out so as a test piece for the 3 1/48 kits for the upcoming GB I have given myself a few weeks to do this with some pre shading inside and outside the aircraft.a full engine and weaponry are included which I hope to add,so please chip in with some painting advice as I have still not perfected this method. Box artwork. Decals and harness. Main engine parts(5 piece) and main cockpit parts. And an idea of the lovely recessed detail.
  5. Morning folks,here,s the last of my trio of Augsburg Eagles,this time in Bulgarian markings which I think is a nice change and top marks to Airfix for a great scheme! I have added a shot of all three as thanks to one of our BM members I was able to correct the previous two as I had yellow tips on the props which the Luftwaffe did,nt.Thanks for looking.
  6. Airfix 1/72 ME109E Franz Elles 8/JG Western desert April 1941. Hi folks,here,s my second Me 109E. It,s the Tropical version of Airfix,s newish tool 109.I was going to build the Bulgarian option in the box but this scheme brought back fond memories of the Matchbox kit I built as a kid.Many thanks for looking in.
  7. So for some added fun, I'm modifying Revell's 1/32 Bf109G-10 Erla kit so the control surfaces will operate with the movement of the control stick. First step was to modify the kit's ailerons so that they actually move. Learn how I did this on my website: http://www.highflyingmodels.com/me109-aileron
  8. Messerschmitt Me109G WGr.21. Rocket Pods Brassin 1:32 Brassin Set 632034 Just when I thought that Eduard couldn’t produce anything else for the Revell 1:32 Me109G kit they go and release this set of WGr.21 Rocket Pods. Packaged in a clear styrene bubble pack with a layer of protecting foam, the set provides parts for two rocket pods, one for each wing. Each pod is made up of the tube, rocket and aerodynamic nose cone, plus the bracing stays. The cast details are really well done, being very fine and realistic, even to the point that Eduard make a note that the seam down the side of each tube must not be sanded away as it is the weld seam and is meant to be there. The set is easy to use, it’s just a matter of removing the parts from the casting blocks, a quick clean up with a sanding sponge, then assemble. Each rocket has a PE base glued to the rocket motor end, slide the rocket into the tube then attach two PE rings to the rear of the tube, and the optional aerodynamic nose cone is then attached. The suspension lug is then fitted to the midpoint of the tube and the bracing struts applied to their respective positions. A brass template is provided to scribe the lower wing panels and drill the holes for the struts and suspension hook. With this done the PE suspension hook and plate are attached to the wing along with the pods themselves, followed by the PE wire running from the rear of the pod, down the rear left inboard strut and into the wing, job done. Conclusion If you want to add extra weaponry to the lovely Revell 1:32 G-6/G-10 then this is certainly one way to go. With the beautifully moulded details it will certainly enhance an already great looking kit. Highly recommended Review sample courtesy of
  9. Messerschmitt detail Set Part 3 Brassin 1:32 Engine Set (632025) Brassin are going mad for the Revell 1:32 Me-109G6 along with their other sets, such as the cockpit and undercarriage sets as reviewed HERE. They have now released this amazing set containing a complete and very detailed engine and upper fuselage deck. As with a lot of Brassin sets, this one comes in a cardboard box inside of which are seven bags of resin parts and two sheets of etched brass. These are all very well protected by blocks of foam. The large instruction sheet is very well laid out clear, and certainly a big improvement on the standard instruction sheets. A lot of the parts are very fragile and care will be needed when removing them from the moulding blocks. The larger parts look pretty easy to remove and clean up as they are only attached to the moulding block on one edge. The engine could easily be assembled and displayed as a model in its own right it is so well detailed. There are 59 resin parts, (if you include the separate exhaust stubs as one), in a mixture of medium and dark greys. The detail on the resin parts is pin sharp, and with a good depth, which a dark wash will help bring out. The engine block is a single piece casting and it is onto this that most of the other parts are attached, including the propeller gearbox and oil tank at the front, comprehensive ancillary drive, with accessories on the rear, numerous pipes, fittings, turbo charger, engine mounting beams etc. Even with all the detail included there are a number of pipes that need to be scratch built from wire, but it’s all well explained in the instructions. Alternative parts are included, particularly on the firewall bulkhead and machine gun deck, depending on whether the G6 or G10 are to be built. The machine guns and ammunition boxes are also included along with their associated spent cartridge chutes. Naturally there will require a fair bit of surgery on the forward fuselage of the kit to enable the engine to be fitted, but to aid with the improved look of the finished article, Brassin have provided a pair of replacement engine cowl panels and air intake for the port side panel. These are joined at the top centre line by the well moulded alternate teeth of the piano hinge and held open with bracing struts. Conclusion Considering the retail price of the Revell kit it does allow those who want to go the whole hog in detailing it that extra bit of cash to do so. In my mind this engine set is a must, even if you don’t mount it on the aircraft it’ll look great, but if used in conjunction with the other sets you could be onto making a masterpiece up to museum quality.

  10. Messerschmitt detail Sets Part 2 Brassin 1:32 With Eduard having produced a number of etched sets for the Revell 1:32 Me-109G6 it looks like their sister company are now getting more involved, other than just releasing wheel sets as reviewed HERE. The three new sets we have been kindly provided with here offer the modeller to add even more detail to the Revell kit and at the same time providing them with an alternative to other manufacturers. Cockpit Set (632022) Arriving in a top opening cardboard box, inside of which are a large number of parts, both resin and etched brass, surrounded by foam padding for complete protection. The larger than normal instruction sheet provides some of the clearest diagrams I’ve seen from Eduard/Brassin which will help greatly in getting the most out of this set. There are 25 resin parts in a mixture of medium and dark greys, plus two clear resin parts, two sheets of etched brass, one pre-painted and a small acetate sheet for the gun sight glass. The detail on the resin parts is nice and sharp, particularly on the side walls. The cockpit is made up of the cockpit floor including the lower section of the rear bulkhead, two side walls, front bulkhead, seat bucket, joystick, footrests, a choice of central cannon breach covers, upper rear bulkhead, two styles of gunsight mount, rudder pedal uprights and oxygen regulator. There is also a choice of two instrument panels, on for use with the etched parts and one on which you could use instrument dial decals, such as those from Airscale. The resin details are enhanced with the addition of the etched parts, and these include the trim wheels along with the chain drives, gunsight glass mounts, rudder pedals with foot straps, joystick enhancements, various rods and brackets for both side panels, as well as the canopy opening mechanism on the starboard panel. The pre-painted seat belts are quite complex, but with care and attention will build into a pretty amazing representation of the real things. Also on the painted sheet are the various layers that go to make up the detailed instrument panel. The plain etched sheet also provides optional panels for use on either the early or late versions of the G6. Even the canopy receives addition detail in the form of the armoured glass, (clear resin), and internal structure for the opening section, not to mention the support strut to keep this section open, plus vents and grab handles on the windscreen section. Undercarriage Legs (632 021) This set is part of Brassins increasing range of undercarriage legs produced in bronze. Not only is the detail really very good, but using this material means the legs won’t begin to buckle, particularly under the weight of all the resin and etch that is now on offer for the kit. They have been designed to fit into the kit undercarriage recesses, so no further modification is required. The set also includes a pair of new undercarriage doors made out of resin. The doors are only lightly affixed to the casting blocks, so cleaning up after removal should be a doddle. Exhaust set (632 020) This isn’t quite as simple a set as it first looks. Whilst the rows of exhaust stubs are moulded in one piece and are a simple slot in replacement for the kit parts, before the etched parts can be used the kit needs to be modified. The upper and lower vanes need to be carefully cut away from the fairings and also a small section of the fairing lip on the fuselage parts. The etched vanes can then be glued into position, followed by the resin exhaust. Conclusion Just when you thought that there couldn’t be anything else to be added to the Revel Me109, Brassin come along and blow that thought away with these sets. The cockpit set is wonderful and will really stand out with some careful detail painting and weathering, the exhaust set is very nice and will add some finesse to the nose are, but it’s the bronze undercarriage legs that really do it for me as they are not only strong, but look great. They probably won’t be cheap, but when you’ve put so much effort in building your ultimate Me109, it deserves to be standing on these superb legs, particularly when matched with the corresponding Brassin wheels.
