  1. German Air Force in WWII Development and requirements • The conditions for planning an air force were not good. There was no distinct plan for war. No strategic plan, just a tactic plan for 1939. All campaigns with exception Poland and France were planned at short notice. According to the current situation, campaigns that were not sheduled and unintended, but set on fire by Italy, or because the conditions in one country changed, like in Great Britain: Duke of Windsor and Chamberlain got lost. And so it made the Battle of Britain necessary, or the grain deliveries to continental Europe were suddenly stopped in May 1941 by US emergency laws, and triggered the Russian campaign immediately. The Russian story in German warfare has to be seen under the condition of 1920 events, when Russia wanted to invade Germany after Poland and in 1923 a revolutionary try once more. • An interesting aspect is the design of long range aircrafts. As Fw 200 and Ju 86 as well as the He 116 and Ju 90. Their origin was the northern silk road to Japan. This was aborted due to the outbreak of war. • So it happened that e.g. some types that no longer seemed necessary were taken out of production and jigs destroyed. After the Battle of Britain Hs 123, Bf 110 were taken out of production. Exactly these types were missing in large numbers in Russia afterwards. Production was restarted on one type Bf 110. • Many types could only be developed specifically depending on the current situation. At the end of development, however, a variant was often already absurd. • In this way, demands were maintained even though they were already outdated. The ability to dive was dogma since the success of the Stuka. • It was also absurd that no attention was paid to the real situation at the airfields of intervention. Missing hangar space at advanced airfields in Russia for example could not give a chance for maintenance of a He 177. Or other advanced technology, never suited for the conditions in Russia. • New technologies, such as flying wings from Horton and jet engines, then lacked capacities because they generally capacities lost in planning chaos and manufacturing chaos. • New types were introduced as intercepter, with some or no success: Ta 152, Me 163, He 162, He 219. Today we can just think about such a dark time and be greatful to live in amore peacful time. In contrast, the relatively constant doctrine of aerial warfare in Britain. To consider also a relatively constant supply line for raw materials from all over the world. From today's perspective, this has to be critically examined, especially in the bomber command. From today's perspective, it's good that the war has ended. However, the suffering it caused will accompany us like a shadow forever. But I do consider, that the effort of the Bomber Command saved Germany from the drop of the American nuclear bomb. I would be delighted if you would give me your opinion?
  2. So folks with the M113 rapidly coming to an end I thought I'd let you all in on the next project. Undecided on the scheme but it might be the NATO 3 colour jobbie ? The beautifully done Master MG-42, this will be a modern MG-3 though. Expensive but worth it And a couple of crew figures It will be a few days before I cut plastic on this one. Regards Dan
  3. Hallo This kit I built straight from the box. Nice kit, and quite straight to build. What I do wonder most of all: The parts are so small and so fine mold, that the quality gap of kit parts between aircraft and vehicle is so big. Why is it? Since with this quality standard of vehicle plastic parts we could omit most resin in aircraft kits? Even the best aircraft kits do not reach this level!!!???? Happy modelling
  4. Hallo again Here is my first rescue tank. The first of a series of 4. The Bergepanzer Panther, the Panzer IV and Hetzer in rescue version will follow. The Tiger I has no interior, in opposition to all, which will follow. It is my first RFM tank. As you see, I started plastic work and I am not finished yet. My color option is German grey and all rescue equipment in minium. Stay health, and be patient. We all need lots of patience in future days and months. Happy modelling
  5. Hallo again Here I build now a Panther A from HB in 1/35. Actually, the kit is nice, good mold. With Zemerit from plastic sheet and etched parts too. So, it will be a build straight from the box. After a Tiger I E and a Tiger II B it is my third of the new German tank designs. Today I did plastic work with Zemerit, since it is first time I have to do with it. So, the next days will bring a lot of new interesting modelling activities. Happy modelling
  6. This is my build of the Hobby Boss SMS Seydlitz. For Some reason this kit has largely been ignored by the aftermarket manufacturers. There is now an imminent release of a full detail upgrade set from Infini, but this was not available at the time I started this build. A a result this is almost a straight box build with Infini mast replacements and the gorgeous Scaledecks laminate decks. An unusual looking ship, and that was the attraction along with the prominent red rear funnel. This is a selection of pictures of the build so far... [ Jase
  7. Hallo again In summary a nice model, a real challenge. A good kit from WNW, with some surprises included. My last WNW model. I choose spraying the camouflage, to prevent working with decals. You never know, if there are troubles with decals, it is too late. I learned my lessons already. Never trust any instruction! At the very end, surprise, surprise! How to install the gun? Because the holding D18 prevents rotating! It is so foolish. The cramped front position with the bombs vertically, no space left, and the gun looks tangential outboard! The kit part D18 is a flaw. The lower door, is actually closed by a spring. And as I read in Flight International after capture, no gun position was there either. The bomb installation opens questions, but no suitable answer in the instruction. So I left my outboard bombs at home! Well, dear modeler, never trust any instruction and be prepared for real astonishment. It is like an ambush! Stay ready to improve, and you may win! If you like crossword puzzle, so take WNW instruction, they are a puzzle. For rigging: Everything is written in my post, to create the same rigging as I did on this AEG! Happy modelling

  14. Hallo again This is my Pfalz D.XII in 1/32 Happy modelling
  15. Hallo again: Here please is my DFW C.V in 1/32: Happy modelling
  16. Hallo again Now here I do a Roland CII early from WNW in 1/32 scale. This a/c is at the time of design at 1915 a highly sophisticated a/c. Why: The aerodynamic with the goal to minimize drag was the guideline. At Göttingen, the University in the field of aerodynamic, with his head Ludwig Prandtl (4 February 1875 – 15 August 1953) was in charge of design. The concept was excellent, since the margin of 30km/h was reached. The same basic design was used for the Spirit of St. Louis. Spirit of St. Louis The overall concept for flight characteristic was poor. No downward visibility. The rudder response was poor, because of low incident flow at the rudder area. The build of this a/c is straight forward. · One point to mention: The shading or visual effect of ribs due to the fact that the fabric was translucent. You see the poor result at the rear stabilizer, as I did it. · Now I change the method: The surface is colored as it should be with any base color. Afterward I will take the base color and rib color in 1:10 or 1:5 and spray the exact pattern of ribs. It should work out much better and it is 100% comprehensible for other models. So, that is it. After it is finished, the late version will follow! Happy modelling
  17. Hallo This is my Roland CII late. In contrast to the Roland CII early, it is much more colorful. My Roland CII early, you will find here. Beside this, I did two major changes. · The rigging without knots · The airscrew, now laminated. Well, I hope you enjoy it. Happy modelling
  18. WWII German Infantry (A00705) 1:76 Airfix Although my childhood association with Airfix is rooted in scale model aircraft, there are many who grew up playing with their famous range of plastic soldiers and tanks. Now you can re-create the childhood adventures of Helmut and his mates, courtesy of the new Vintage Classics range. Inside the compact box you get six frames of figures, most of which are attached via the built-in base. This should give you a clue as to the market these figures were originally pitched at. Not for the hallowed halls of Telford were these soldiers. No, they were destined to slog it out with Tommy Atkins on the floors of bedrooms up and down post-war Britain. The large range of different poses include crawling/prone soldiers, as well as some crouching or standing and firing weapons. Also in the box are some machine gun and flame thrower crews, as well as some who are just standing around doing nothing. The quality of moulding is nothing remarkable, but that won't stop these little fellows evoking a smile from even the most stone-hearted of nostalgic modellers Conclusion These figures don't compare to modern offerings, but they are as cheap as chips and you get loads in the box. If you want to introduce a younger audience to the world of scale modelling, or even stick them at the back of a diorama, these figures can still do a job in 2019. Review sample courtesy of
  19. Hi guys This is quite an interesting subject by Takom that surprised us all. It just goes to show the vast range of kits and subjects available now. I bet most people never would have thought they would see a kit of this ever be made. Personally It's not my usual build but unusual enough to grab my attention. I have been working on it on and off for a while now. Quite a nice kit but a bit laborious to build. This is down to most of the bits being duplicated to cover both guns and a slight mould misalignment meaning the parts clean up is taking longer than it should. I can finally see the light at the end of the building tunnel though.

  20. This is Miniart's new FL 282 V-6 Kolibri (Hummingbird). A very nice, albeit extremely fiddly kit to put together. It's also an incurable tailsitter, with nowhere much to add any weight up front, which is why it's on a base (pinned via the nose wheel). The kit's very well detailed and, as far as I can tell, pretty accurate. It's a straight OOB build apart from the seat harness, where the PE belts supplied with the kit were substituted for some HGW fabric ones. Thanks for looking Andy
  21. Hi friends, i just finished the fig of the crew who came with the Voroshilovets see here: painted with acrylics
  22. 1/35 Valkyrie German tank crewman. Constructed and painted, ready for my Meng Leopard 2a4 (which has yet to be started :-) ). Painted with vallejo acrylics (uniform) and AK (flesh).
  23. This will eventually go in to a diorama with my SU-85 Recently finished. Thanks for looking. Please comment steve
  24. Hello all somewhat a newbie to BM. Newbie to WW1 aircraft other than the basics. Im trying to add to my overall Collection of builds/kits/Stash. I have a Sopwith Camel in 1/72nd and am planning on adding the following types. Id like to keep them same scale for display purposes. I would love to do these kits from WNW but im on a seriously restrictive budget financially and storage wise. I guess what im looking for is help completing the following list. 1. Sopwith pup 2. Sopwith Triplane 3. Nieuport ( not sure of variants ) 4. Spad ( again not sure of variants ) 5. Fokker Dr.1 ( Triplane correct?) 6. Fokker D.VII ( Biplane ?) 7. Fokker Eindecker (monowing?) 8. Albatross D.III 9. Albatross D.5 10. Pfalz (not sure of variants) I hope thats a good start as im just starting out. These will be built along with other types in my stash as time unfolds and as i think i can get to them. But am looking at eduard kits for most of them in this scale. Any how i hope and believe you gentleman are far wiser when it comes to this era. Thank you Dennis
  25. A pair of Modelcollect's E-100's, one with the Rheintochter SAM, and one with a V1. Apart from the respective missiles the two kits are identical, but the V-1 version actually includes the Rheintochter as unused parts so if you're buying one, you're better off getting that one. The kits are nice and very well detailed, but the rubber band tracks are a bit of a pain. They're made from something that looks suspiciously like Dragon DS plastic, so how well they'll last in the long term remains to be seen. The subjects are of course pure fantasy, although the Rheintochter is more of a viable possibility that the V1. Painted and weathered with AMMO paints and washes, apart from the red primer hull which was finished with Vallejo Cavalry Brown (see discussion here) Thanks for looking Andy
