  1. GasPatch Models is to release a new tool 1/48th Messerschmitt Me.163 Komet kit - ref. Source: http://master194.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=110151 Source: https://www.flickr.com/photos/80229502@N07/49051009031/in/album-72157711742696723/ V.P.
  2. Hello Folks, I wanted to invite you to follow me through the journey with this Trumpeter Swordfish Mk I, as I'm pretty sure you've seen some before. Nevertheless the Stringbag in it's matchbox incarnation was one of my first models I build together with my father way back in the seventies. While I type this, I just can't help slipping into a bit of nostalgia, remembering the three coloured model from their "Orange" range of model, summer holidays in the seventies, the toy shop where I spent a fair amount of my pocket money... (Ok, let's stop here now. For those interested - this one: http://www.matchboxkits.org/product_info.php?cPath=27_35_53&products_id=712) I decided to go for W5984 with the "full" camouflage, mainly as it seems more like the one at the FAA Museum in Yeovilton I visited last year and I hope I can use some pictures for details. As I planned to do this one straight OOB and followed this direction so far, I start here with the body already put together and having received it's clear coat: The pictures are not 100% perfect (I take this as an excuse for considering the acquisition of a nice Macro lens), but you get an idea. I used Lifecolor Dark Green and Dark Seagrey for the camouflage and Revell Sky for the bottom, airbrushed the camouflage pattern from hand and blutack-ed beween upper and lower painting. I'm ok with the result so far, as it comes close to what I imagine as a quick "field paint", applied not in the factory but on an airfield and far from being perfect. Something like the birds from that aera as exhibited, like the Walrus and the Stringbag in Yeovilton.
  3. Next GasPatch models (http://www.gaspatchmodels.com/) kit will be a 1/48th Henschel Hs 123 A-1/B-1 Release is expected for Q4 2014 Source: http://www.network54.com/Forum/149674/message/1406127817/OMG!+An+all+new+tooled-mold+Hs=123+1-48.++I"m+throwing+out+the+old+esci+kits!

  4. Just completed the excellent Gaspatch 1/48 Henschel Hs123B-1, this really is a beautiful kit, although it doesn't fall together like the Tamigawa kits, but requires some patience and thought to assemble. I also used the Eduard p/e accessory set, mainly for the control panel ( a bit of laziness on my part ) instead of using the kit supplied plastic panel and decals. This kit actually requires no aftermarket parts everything is supplied. I decided I wanted to represent a well used, well worn machine. I used Vallejo Model Air Paints for the main camouflage colours RLM 71/65 and Mission Models paint for the RLM04. I actually faded the paints more than I usually would to give a well worn finish. This particular machine is from 4/SchG2 Russia 1942-43, this aircraft scheme is from the internet and AMTech boxing of the old ESCI kit which incorrectly states it to be a Hs123A-1. Although it is difficult to differentiate between the A and B models the wings being fabric covered on the A and metal on the B not easily discernable from photographs. The base is just a temporary setting for the "photo-shoot"! Cheers Andy

    Turnbuckles

    I'm currently researching for some future builds of WNW and Eduard I'm wanting to fit detailed turnbuckles. I have settled on GasPatch http://www.gaspatchmodels.com/products/metal-turnbuckles-32.html I now find myself a little lost and in need of some help please. What type (A B C etc) of turnbuckles you use and how do you find out which type for which aircraft, is there some kind of reference book or data base available? Many thanks
  6. I have the Hs123 from Gaspatch in the stash and looks like it will be next up. I intend to build Galland’s aircraft in the RLM 61/62/63 over 65 scheme. Looking at the colour call outs, I cannot discern the colour of the upper and lower wing and support leading edges? I thought RLM 70? TIA and regards,

  8. Thought I'd share my latest completion. This is the excellent WnW Albatross. This was a 2014 Father's Day gift. I started in in November and finished last weekend. My first WnW kit and first WW1 build. I decided on this kit because I thought I owed it to myself to see what the hype was about with these kits. It's all justified. The best OOB decals I've ever used...by far. Rigged with EZ Line and Gastpatch turnbuckles. The woodgrain was done with oils. For my first WW1 I'm satisfied. There are some things I'd do differently next time around though. Thanks for looking!
