  1. #3/2018 My dad´s third and last Soviet WW2 subject for now. The excellent Zvezda kit, Eduard seatbelts added, EZ Line for the antenna wires. For the AMT-1, -4, -7 and -12 camo my dad used the new AK Interactive Real Color Air paints.

    Zvezda 1/35 Panzer IV Ausf E Finished!

    Well before I start getting nasty notices from Six I thought that I had better mark my place with my entry for this GB for which I will be building Zvezda's relatively new 1/35 Ausf E. Now I am not an avid armour builder so you will have to forgive me any newbie errors I make and also any stupid questions that I might ask, I will also be building her OOTB complete with any errors that the kit might have, no doubt there are some, with a view to possibly finishing it as a tank operated by the Afrika Korps or DAK as they are often referred. So without further ado here are the usual box and contents shots; Quite nice box art and underneath is a very sturdy cardboard box stuffed full of parts. Lots of bits in these target boxes aren't there! Thankfully for a novice like me there are link and length tracks rather than individual links. Anyway don't get your hopes up for a record breaking build as I have the small matter of a B-17 to get finished first. Anyway thanks for looking in and any comments and tips are gratefully received. Craig.
  3. After finishing the Ju88, my dad starts the next 2-mot, Zvezda´s nice Pe-2 kit. DSC_0002 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
  4. I would like to present you my first jet. In my opinion Zvezda's kit is really good and there is no many issues. I make few mistakes, but have a fun working with MiG. Now is showtime.
  5. Hi all, Like a few others who have posted recently this is my contribution to the ongoing and excellent Panzer IV GB, please do not judge the GB my the meager standards of my model but pop along and have a look as there is some excellent modelling going on. This is my first 1/35 armour in a very long time and on the whole I enjoyed it, I will however NEVER enjoy repetitive road wheel! Any way enough waffle here are the pics; For those of you interested here is a link to the WIP; Thanks for looking in and all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Craig.

    Andy's Ausf D

    Not sure on markings for this one yet, but I love these little Zvezda kits and couldn't resist adding one to the stash, and inevitably, also the GB. I have markings in the post so final finish will be something either Ostfront or DAK most probably in a single colour because I'm not very good at camo. This is the box: And this is what comes in it. Note the tight, brand new tracks on this one in comparison to the built in track sag on the PSC version. Detail is adequate and quite nicely done, and they take paint beautifully so this should be another fun little build. When these are done I have <deep breath> A Pz 38(t), Pz II, Pz III, Panther, Ferdinand, Jagdtiger and Sd.kfz 251 in the queue. And some more Russian stuff (both GPW and modern). Then the entire 1st Polish Armoured Division. Told you I was a fan Andy Finding his niche.
  7. I have to make a confession first, I never finished a scale model of the Bf 109 So time to change this. As I had the three new kits in my stash, why not to do a "comparative" build of them. They are from largest to smallest box - Eduard, Tamiya and Zvezda. Upon opening the boxes, the Eduard box looks rather empty. The Tamiya box looks to have more in it. And the Zvezda box is full up to the rim! But this is a bit misleading as several frames are from the older F model. There are plenty online reviews of the three kits and they are all reasonably favorable. According to them, the Zvezda kit which is based on their F model lacks in details and looks rushed. Eduards Mk.II kit is now in 1/48 at last, but still has some shape issues. And Tamiya with the latest addition looks to be another shake the box kit to build it. So lets start the comparison with the wings. As can be seen, there is a slight variation in wing span. The Zvezda wing is actually a bit shorter still as it isn't casted with the dihedral in place. Here a close-up of the two bulges and the difference in shapes And here the a picture how these two bulges do look. Lets move to the top of the wing. Here the length diffrence is now more visible, with the Zvezda wing about 1mm too short. And the comparison of the undercarriage bulge. To compare the fuselage is a bit tricky due to the construction of the engine covers. The Eduard fuselage is maybe placed a bit too forward. Considering this, they are equal in length. Also note the different shapes and sizes of the bulge under the horizontal stabilizers. And these bulges on the real aircraft. It looks there was a bit of variation on the real aircraft too. But there are differences in the representation of maintenance panels. The res circle show the missing panels. I believe Tamiya has one too many, Eduard is correct and Zvezda has some missing. The Tamiya instructions have this to say about the panels above and the bulges below. And here the other side. The two bulges are very noticable on the Tamiya kit, very tiny on the Eduard kit and none existent on the Zvezda kit. Here a close up. One known issue with the Eduard kit is the fuselage height. In comparison with the Zvezda kit, it is 0.6mm too high. Comparing the Zvezda and Tamiya fuselage results in a perfect match. I am sure that all three kits will result in very nice models of the Bf 109 G-6. The Tamiya kit looks to be the easiest build. Eduard has some nice details and Zvezda needs a bit of work. My goal is to have the three models built in similar finishes prior painting. That means that I will rivet the Zveda and Tamiya kit. I may use after market parts for the wheel and exhaust which would also correct the other problem on the Eduard kit, the too wide opening for the exhaust. My next update will be a comparison of the cockpits ready for painting. I won't use the Eduard PE parts in the cockpit to have a fairer comparison. Thanks for stopping by. Cheers, Peter
  8. I needed something to get my mojo going again. My airbrushing skills, etc., have be eroding. Something simple that didn't get dragged down with overdone scratchbuilding, which for me always takes the wind out of the sails at times. This kit was in the stash and looking very smart with the fine details. Building it was not a total pleasure, the fitting of the nose cowls and landing gear was not without frustration. But happy to have a kit completed. Good from a far, but far from good is what this reminds me but happy to share. My airbrushing techniques evolve and now I am finding thinning my paints more than the usual recommendation works well for my style. At times 50-80 % thinner to paint for Vallejo Model Air. It also keeps the paint from hiding the smallest details. The decals ended up breaking apart in spots, another frustration. Comments always welcome, and I will apologize for the photo took on a bit of a greyscale effect which I don't understand. Craig
  9. Hi everyone, I have just started the Zvezda easy assembly kit of the Me Bf 109 F-2. I am actually quite impressed with this kit, as it is light years ahead of the HobyBoss Easy Assembly kits. I know, as I started quite a while back a Dewoitine D 520, and I lost my motivation while attempting to create a credible cockpit. No such problems with Zvezda, who delivers a rather exciting cockpit. Here is a photo after I sprayed a coat of aluminium paint to help with creating some scuffing/scratches after the RLM 66. I did add some PE rudder pedals, but I am wondering why , as nothing will ever be visible again. I guess I will sleep better knowing it is there. A set of PE seat harness is waiting in the aisle as well. The only problem to date is about the fit, which could be better under the wings and on the tail. Any puttying and sand papering has to be done painstakingly slowly in order not to destroy the delicate panel lines and rivets. Not sure everything will be left unscathed, but so far so good. Photos on the next post. Re the paint scheme, I think the kit's decal sheet is of very average quality, so I am doing a scheme from an Xtradecal sheet. It is the second from the top. Since I built the ancient Airfix Me Bf 109 G-6 as a kid, I have always wanted to do another JG 53 Messerschmitt, better built than the first one! Only problem: I cannot find a photo of that particular aircraft... So will extrapolate and do the same aircraft, earlier in its career, with most of the area forward of the cockpit painted yellow! It is suitably garish, and I can't wait! So if any of you has any tips concerning this build or my chosen paint scheme, please let me know! Cheers. JR

  17. Hey! First build since...., let's try not to screw it too much. I am, slowly, building the "stock" version, no eduard PE. Cockpit is done. That's small, and yes I did had some problem with the side panel stencils! Luckily we can hardly see them. Once question about the landing gear bay. What is their color? For the main one I guess it's red and grey, but for the front one?
  18. In the framework of the recent toy tradefair Mir Detstva 2017, held at Moscow, Zvezda is reported having announced a "surprise" new tool 1/48th aircraft kit for 2018.

  23. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is my 1/72 Zvezda Yak-3, built with Eduard phot etch, Armory wheels, Rob Taurus vacu and Quickboost spinner. Markings are from Begemot 'Yak-3 Family' sheet, representing an aircraft of 303. Fighter Division, 3rd Belorussian Front, spring 1945. The model was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. "White 19" was an early production aircraft, carrying only one UB machine gun in the cowling. I filled the recess of the gun opening on the right side and removed the small fairing behind. Thanks for your interest in this topic! Best greetings from Vienna.
  24. I am a thoroughly irrational modeller at times. In particular, I'll buy kits, then buy some more kits to practice on before I build the kit that I bought in the first place. For example, I bought the Eduard Rockin' Rhino boxing of the Academy 1/48 Phantom, something of a dream kit for me. Then I bought a 1/48 A-7 and a 1/48 A-6 because I felt I needed the practice on external stores. And an Academy Phantom to make sure that I have a dry run. This kit is not quite on that scale, but I pulled it out of the stash because I was thinking about buying a resin engine for another kit, and this has a well detailed styrene engine for me to practice on. I've been trying hard in the last few weeks to resist the pull of the novel, but I'm weak! (But I know I'm not alone...) So, this kit comes with a good rep, and a heck of a lot of parts. I like the looks of the Pe-2, it's a very graceful airframe: Zvezda give three marking options, though as often seems to be the case with VVS subjects, there's only one basic scheme. I'm leaning towards the first, from the 12th Guards Dive Bomber Regiment, but no decision needs to be taken just yet as there seems to be no difference in the build process or the basic colours between the options. In any case, the build starts, appropriately enough, with the detailed Klimov M105 engine. The M105 is similar to the Merlin: a V-12 liquid cooled engine rated at around 1,000 HP, like the early Merlins. This is one of those "kits within a kit", and must have 30+ components, most of them on this sprue: Plenty of very fragile looking parts that I can have fun trying to remove cleanly. But the interior parts make this look simple; there are over one hundred parts to put in. This is going to take me some time... I must finish by apologising for the awful pun in the thread title
