  1. Good evening guys, I present you my most recently completed model, Academy's 1:48 Ta 183. The kit was originally from Amtech.
  2. My first Eduard kit, and probably my last until the Tempest V Series 2 comes out. The aircraft was easy to build, but the decals (specially the wing´s Iron Crosses) sticked as soon as they touched the surface. I ended up replacing the crosses on the wings with spares from a Cartograf printed decal sheet, since I broke one. I also almost break one of the tulips that went over the engine scoops, but I saved it. Spinner spiral was painted. Here´re the photos:
  3. Photos of my latest model, a Bf 109G-6 with markings for Erich Hartmann´s aircraft. I used Hasegawa´s painting instructions instead of the kit supplied ones, and a real life photo to prove this aircraft didn´t have the fuel tank, its rack, and the two underwing cannons Hobby Boss tells you to use. Here´s the work in progress thread:
  4. Photos of my latest build, Hobby Boss´s Bf 109G-6 in 1:48. The only fit problems I could find were with the nose covers (a bit oversized), a cockpit piece that was in the way of a good fitting cockpit, and what I think was an oversized control panel that had to be trimmed. The model was brush painted, and the fuselage camouflage was handpainted, without guides, I´ll use Tamiya tape for the next 109, seeing they always have straight fuselage camouflages. I used Hasegawa´s Bf 109G-6 1:32 painting instructions for this model. Use plenty of water if you´re planning on using the kit´s decals, they tend to stick on the surface. As per real life photos of this aircraft, the fuel tank, its mount and the underwing cannons were left behind.
  5. Hello Guys, This will be my second Revell 1/32 Scale model that I have built and will go alongside my first one- the Revell 1/32 Arado AR196A-3 Seaplane in a diorama that I have planned. This kit retails in my Local Hobby Store for $27.50, but I had a $5.00 coupon to use making it only $22.50 (about 15.00 quid in the UK), which at first hand appears to be great value for money! Erich "Bubi" Hartmann was the Ace of Aces with the highest number of air victories that totaled 352, which earned him the "Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds". Introduction to the kit: The Box Art: The Box Contents: Inside the box are 4 clear bags of grey sprues, 12 in total and 1 clear bag containing 2 clear sprues. There's a 16 page black and white assembly/instruction/painting and decaling booklet and a sheet of cartograf decals. The Sprues: Sprues A and B: Sprue C: Sprues D, G and H: Sprue K: Sprue M: Sprue N: Clear Sprues O and P: The 16 page black and white Instruction/Assembly/Painting and Decalling Booklet: And finally, the decals: Initial Observations: The molded parts are very crisp and clean with zero flash apart from a couple of little areas. the parts have nice fine recessed panel lines and some rivet details. The clear molded parts are very clear and not thick with zero aberrations. The decals are excellent looking with zero carrier film beyond the decal edges. The black and white instruction booklet appears to be clear and concise, but the two paint and decal options would be better in color. There are three blank pages at the end of the booklet. The color call outs are in Revell colors only. I will make a final report when the build is complete indicating any issues that I come across. In the meantime, thanks for taking a look and I hope you enjoy following along with my build, which I started already, but haven't had the time until now to start this post thread due to family from Florida staying with us for the last 10 days. Anyway, if you'd like to see my "in-Box-Review" video for this kit, here is the link: https://youtu.be/PNScSYj4E6c My Build Update #1 report will follow shortly! Cheers, Martin
