Henschel Hs 126B-1 2.(H)/14 North Africa 1941/1942 " I'm back in Europe ! "


Recommended Posts

Hello to all
Many times we buy mounting kit and then forget them in our closets, these days I thought of a new subject for this GB .... and I remembered to have a nice German reconnaissance aircraft also operates in Africa: the Hs 126B- 1; the kit is an ICM 1/48 with some afermarket set eduard and Quickboost

:bye: Ettore  :pumpkin:

Hi All

Finally first shots...........

Having a detail set, I enjoyed it, almost, to paste some photo-etched on the wings :blink:

Then I glued together and well stops

......... And then I moved to the interior, it has been long and estenunate, as you see I scratchbuilt some details

As you see, some photoetched are in RLM 66, I have to figure out if the interiors of the african period were RLM 02 or RLM 66, I think RLM 02 colors, but I'll  paint the box black and leave the front in RLM 66, also for contrast.
 
See you soon !

Nice going Ettore, the cockpit looks fantastic. I would think you would get the engine mount in at this stage, I found the wing supports (the ones that go from the top of the wing, to the supports that go to the fuselage.)quite brittle and had to do some repair on the sprue.

Then I will study how to fix it

Dear Friends
Unfortunately, for reasons of work I have to leave for South America (French Guyana), and  Iwill return on December 23; This means that I cannot finish the Hs 126 GB for this GB............but at least the Mk 202 is done!
Ok, tomorrow I will be in Paris, and at 11:00 AM I have the  flight to Cayenne, 9 hour flight and start again.....
:pilot:
See you soon !
  :bye:Ettore

Hello People

I'll jump behind also this second experience in French Guiana and re start with  modelling; unfortunately I will not finish the Hs 126, but I put it aside to finish it with more calm soon. Now I look what I missed in the forum, but I have seen, velocente, you worked well, Well done!
I take this opportunity to hug you all and wish you the best Christmas for you and your families 

See you at the next GB

 

:bye: Ettore
