  1. Dornier Do.217N-1 Night Fighter (48271) 1:48 ICM via Hannants Ltd. The origin of the Do.217 was the Do.17 flying pencil as it was colloquially know, to extract more power from the engines, extend its range and give it a better bomb load amongst other improvements. The resulting airframe was a good one and left the early war designs in its wake becoming known as a heavy bomber in Luftwaffe service, something they were very short of throughout the war. It was also a versatile aircraft much like the Ju.88, and was adapted to many other roles like its predecessors,
  2. Junkers Ju.88C-6B German WWII Night Fighter (48239) 1:48 ICM via Hannantss The Ju-88 was designed as a schnellbomber in the mid 30s, and at the time it was faster than current fighter designs, so it was predicted that it could infiltrate, bomb and escape without being intercepted. That was the theory anyway. By the time WWII began in the west, fighters had caught up with the previously untouchable speed of the 88, and it needed escorting to protect it from its Merlin equipped opponents. It turned out to be a jack of all trades however, and was as competent as a
  3. Hello all... Here is my entry in this group build. Dragons 1/72nd Heinkel He-219-0 UHU. I have posted a link from scalemates for now. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/dragon-5005-he-219a-0-uhu--106305# Once i get the chance later tonight. I will actually photograph the box and contents. With the obligatory sprue shots. Dennis
  4. Hello all... Im posting my recent build of Dragons 1/72 He.219-A0. I built this down in the “Specialists” group build. Im hoping you like it. You will note it needs a tail prop to stand up properly. I found out too late that no matter how much weight. I just couldn't get it to stand on all three feet. A link to the WIP If any are curious. Questions, comments, jokes, our good stories ?
  5. Junkers Ju-88C-4 Nightfighter (SH48177) 1:48 Special Hobby The Ju-88 was designed as a schnellbomber in the mid 30s, and at the time it was faster than current fighter designs, so it was projected that it could infiltrate, bomb and exfiltrate without being intercepted. That was the theory anyway.

It turned out to be a jack of all trades however, and was as competent as a night fighte
  6. Hello, here's my 1/72 Hasegawa Junkers Ju-88 G6 "Nachtjäger" of 6./NJG2, Fritzlar 1945. I used Eduard photo-etch, True Details resin wheels, Schatton antennas and markings from Authentic Decals. Painted with acrylics from the Gunze/Mr.Hobby range. The Hasegawa kit has some fit issues, which is strange for a modern HQ tooling. The fuselage halves need some filling and blending, the nose cap is over-sized, the wing tips and the belly insert with the guns don't fit very well either. The antennas are metal pieces from Schatton (http://www.modellbau-schatton.privat.t-online.de/). They
  7. Hi All, A long time in the making, she fought me along the way, and, I ended up putting her to one side and finishing something. But she is now 'over the line' and, while my modelling skills weren't up to the challenge, I am happy she is finished. The last in my Nachtjager series I'm keen to do something more colourful I based the camouflage on the first picture and the kit instructions. It looks to me as if the light coloured 'splotches' (wonder what the German is for that!) were applied in the field so I painted the basic splinter camo, applied the decals and then sprayed the splotches
  8. Hello! I've got this kit asa bitrhday present to 18th from a friend, so I was must do it right. There were such things on the "to do list" like replace an intake hole, create a landing light, etc. First I started it went wrong, so its a semi-demolished model. I bought the Airwaves PE shiets but sadly I seen these were much more expensive than useful. The parts were often oversized, but a lot of thing were duplicated. Musch details are made after the Eduard pro-pack guide. First step: Adding details: The grills are simply not fit. Lot of sanding and scribeing. A littl
  9. Hi All, Please find below my interpretation of Dragon's He 219. I chose to complete her 'in flight' as I love the shape of this aircraft. Completed oob with the exception of airfix aircrew. I based the scheme loosely on the one at NASM (http://www.warbirdsnews.com/uncategorized/nasms-heinkel-he-219-restoration-update.html) and some images from the internet. Weathering was kept to a minimum as they were still very new when the war ended. Paints are all Italeri Acrylics. Hope that you enjoy. And with a little photoshop (actually GIMP) magic.... Thanks for
  10. Hi All, Another in my Nachtjager theme of builds, this one I completed earlier this year and it is my interpretation of Hasegawa's excellent 1/72 Ju 88 G-6. Once again built nearly completely out of the box with kit markings, I only scratch built the radar array but I'm still not happy as it is still way too heavy and added foil seatbelts. Painted with Italeri Acrylics. Hope that you enjoy. Thanks for looking. Shane
  11. Hi All, This is my rendition of Italeri's Do 217 N-1 to go with my current build theme of Nachtjagers. I completed it late last year but only just now managed to find time to take some pictures. She is built OOB and in the markings supplied. It is an old kit with raised panel lines but I enjoyed the build. I must say I was never a fan of the Dorniers, always felt they looked too clunky but after building this kit the shape has really grown on me. She is finished in Italeri Acrylics and kit decals with after market swastikas. Hope that you enjoy. Thanks for looking.
  12. And all through the skies, Not a creature was stirring not even the flies. The ammo was stacked by the cannons with care, In hope that the Englanders soon would be there. Hey all After my brief bout of insanity, during which I constructed a car model (see http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234991043-deuces-wild/) I have returned to the side of light and reason with yet another aircraft Today I present Revell's 1/48 Bf 110G-4 finished as the example flown by Obst. Hans-Joachim Jabs of NJG 1 in the spring of 1945. Enjoy... So the Revell/Promodeller Bf
  13. Heinkel He.219 Uhu (volume 1) Kagero Monographs 3D Edition The He.219 has come to the fore again with the release of both the Revell kit in 1:32 reviewed here, and the more detailed masterpiece from Japanese company Zukeimura, also in 1:32, which you can see [url="http://www.zoukeimura.co.jp/en/sentiment/oyajiblog_038.html"here. Kagero have wasted no time in producing this addition to their Monographs range, making in number 49, and you'll note that this is also Volume 1, so there is more to come. It is a striking perfect-bound book in portrait format, extending to 92 pages, with a set
