  1. Hi I have just finished my second He-111 done within He-111 STGB. This is very rare variant G-3. From what I've learnt only a few of them were originally build few next were converted from C during WW2 times. Similar was in my case - the model was done by rather massive scratch conversion of Roden He 111 C kit. I said "massive" because it was not only about engines and props but also about wings, which in case of "G" were already not old style elliptical but newer style with straight sloped leading edge and also almost straight trailing edge. More about the build is told here, inclu
  2. Hi, Recently I post a short story of conversion of Frog/Novo Percival Proctor into Percival P3 Vega Gull Six. It warmed me a bit and I started work on something, what I had been planned from about 10 years, to do one day. It is to construct models of DH 84 Dragon and DH 90 Dragonfly. I know, tahat there are kits of them in vacu technique or a resin one. However I want to try it anyway.... This is my first time when my scratch conversion of biplane(s) which needs preparation of new wings and then it will need rigging, I hope that I will manege, but I am not sure... The basis is S
  3. Hi, Next done this year (No 21, I think). This is Douglas DT 2 C, a torpedo-bomber development of Douglas DWC - a famoous long-range flight pioneering aircraft. Of course it was originally US designed but that particullar machine was of Norwegian licence production, as 7 others. Origianlly was equipped with Liberty engine (as DWC) but latter all Norwegians DT's were re-engined with Armstrong-Siddeley Panther engine. Scheme from April 1940, Norway. This "84" survived German attack on 9th April and then was captured. Was the only one DT 2 which survived Norwegian campaign. In general DT 2 t
  4. Hi, Beriev MBR-2 was one of the most numberous small flying boat of WW2 and the basic such machine in Soviet Union. This type apeared in 1930. initially with open canopies and M-17 engine, later (as MBR-2 bis) with pilot cockpit closed, a closed turret, added flaps and redesigned tail as well as M 34 engine The Avia/Eastern Express kit of Beriev MBR-2 bis looks in box very promising. However after careful look and comparison with drawing and photos some flaws became obvious. Among them the most important are too deep and unrealistic parts of wings and tail covered by fabric and too
  5. Hi, Aero A 100 is a light recco-bomber produced between wars in Czechoslovakia. There is a injected kit of this machine in 1/72 by Kovozavody from some eighties I think. A 101 is its developed variant. A 101 kit is produced as resin kit by CMR. A 101 is very sttractive due to use of this machine in Spanish Civil War, on both sides of conflict. I will try to do scratch conversion of A 100 into A 101 with parallel build of regular A 100 in Slovak colours. Many people think that diffrence is only in engine, undercarridge and fuselage lenght. This is unfortunatelly not true. The main problem
  6. Hi Avro Anson - for many years the only kit in 1/72 was the very old (1960?) Airfix one. Now there is much better, the Special Hobby one. However, models which I would like to show today were made in 2005. So there was no choice - the base must be Airfix kit. Please enjoy - the Anson family photos: They are Mk I of Royal Greek Airforces, 1941, Mk V of RCAF during WWII and Mk XII of RAF, early 1945. Mk I - i did some work with cabin and added some details. The Mk V of RCAF has deeply reshaped fuselage (playwood in original machine), different engines
  7. Hi From some time I was thinking on doing finally the Hit-Kit Breguet XIX, which is in may stash from 1995. This is a Polish short-run kit with provision for four different engine version (Elizade W or three V types, no radial ones). If you have not heard on this kit the box looks like that: However an idea came to me - why do one model, perhaps I can do two (or even three) if I will copy some parts in resin. Let's try just two. I will try to make a CASA-Breguet 19 from Spanish Civil War (a Nationalist side) with Elizade/Lorrain W-type engine and a RYAF Bregue
  8. Hi, This is my first model I made documenting it on WIP forum: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234971044-percival-vega-gull-p3-scratch-conversion-from-frog-proctor-172/ So this is scratch conversion from Proctor, Frog/Novo. I am very thankful to Rossm and Graham Boak who help me a lot clarifying some problems, which appeared during work. This was in WWII forum on BM: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234971179-percival-vega-gull-ax698-photo/ Namely, now I know, that proper name of this machine is Percival Gull Six (not “Vega”)
  9. Hi, Completing posts of my French archive shelf - Bloch MB 200. Well - have to tell this. She was ugly. She was perhaps even more than ugly... But the bombers from early 1930 all were ugly - Dornier Do Y, Boulton Paul Sidestrand, HP Heyefors, etc.. - they all looks very strange today. The model was scratch converted from Kovozavody Prostejov kit of licence-build in Czecholovakia Bloch 200, named there Avia MB 200 (or Aero MB 200, since small amount was also produced by Aero, main production was in Avia). The main difference between original Bloch and licence one Avia MB 200 is no nos
  10. Hi, Next piece from my shelf. I made it in 2002. This is Ju 86 R1, machine 4U+PK, belonging to 2 Staffel, Aufklarung Gruppe 123, based in Castelli, Crete, 1942. This is scratch conversion from Italeri Ju 86 (in particular it was Ju-86 D kit, but it does not matter if it was not Ju 86Z or other, since all engines as well as outer parts of wings and cabin are home made). In this time there was a Czech conversion set (resin) to Ju 86 P (as far as I remeber) or even longest wing-span R, but it was pretty expencive, so I quit with it and decided to do out of scratch. For more fun Now the
  11. Hi, A model from a shelf with airplanes of Spanish Civil War... This is Miles Speed Six, a/c no. 43, pilot W. Humble - a British volunteer in Spanish Civil War, operating as light bomber (!) in Asturias 1937 on side of Republicans (following data from book: Aviones en la Guerra Civil, 1936-39...). The model is converted from old Frog Miles Magister, using scratch parts and body putty by Humbrol. In background of some photos page of this book is shown. I hope you will enjoy this machine...
