Eduard's Bf110E (Profipack)

Recommended Posts

So I had originally entered the Academy A-10 (Iraqi Freedom) kit in to this GB but unfortunately this has suffered from irreparable damage caused by me stupidly knocking it flying off the bench.  After a fair amount of expletives and raised blood pressure, I have since gathered my composure and being the bigger man that I am have decided to continue with the GB but only this time with the following kit:

 

DSC00260

 

This is a superb looking kit with some excellent detailing - particularly for the cockpit.  It comes with a variety of options for paint schemes and I am drawn to 2 at the moment - either the one on the front of the box or this one:

 

S9+NN, 5./ZG “Wespen”, Lt. Herbert Kutscha, Russia, 1942

 

 

As always - your assistance and feedback on helping me choose the scheme would be much appreciated.

 

So in the meantime I've made a start on putting the cockpit together in its basic form with a bit of detail painting in readiness for the washes and PE to go in next.  So this is how things stand at the moment:

 

DSC00263

 

DSC00265

 

I've follwed this up by getting the RLM02 base coat on the fuselage and undercarriage section on the wings:

DSC00267

 

So more progress to follow soon - hopefully this time I'll be able to make sure that it stays firmly on the bench!!!

Nice choice.  My vote would go for the box art scheme, as it's possibly less well known?  Either would be great though!

Thanks for that Cliff - I think you could be right - it's not a scheme I've seen before.

So, I've been busy detailing the cockpit and getting this all finished off.  I've then been able to get the fuselage closed up and managed to get the fuselage and wings together as well as the engines onto the wings.  I think it's well documented that there are some slight issues with the fit of the nacelles but this will be easy rectified with a bit of filler.  Here's where I am at the moment:

I vote for the box scheme. Is that a red shark mouth?

It is indeed a red shark mouth.  Thanks for you feedback Thud - it's definitely looking like that's the scheme I'm going to go for.

I think I support the others suggesting the red shark-mouth marked version

Thanks for your feedback Black Knight - I think it's unanimous that I'll be going for the box art scheme :thumbsup:

How are you getting on with this?

We're not far off the half-way point in the GB

Hey Black Knight,

 

The build is progressing nicely and I'm due to post some more pics shortly.

 

Thanks

Ok folks I'm back with an update on the 110.  Been really busy lately so have not had as much time at the bench as I would have liked - especially when I've got 4 GB's on the go at the same time :banghead:

 

So I've manged to get her into the paint shop and have added some items such as the undercarriage, and then the bombs in preparation for a gloss coat for decals.  Once she's been glossed and decals added, I'll be able to get the weathering and panel lining done and the canopy uncovered for the home stretch.

 

So here's where I am at the moment:

 

DSC00353

 

DSC00354

 

DSC00355

 

DSC00356

 

DSC00357

 

I'm working on getting her finished as we speak so hopefully the next set of pics I'll be uploading will be for the gallery.

 

Happy modelling folks and hope to update you soon

Well I've managed to get her completed (phew) - close to the wire!!!  I've uploaded the 5 pics into the gallery but I've got some more to share with you here also.  I've really enjoyed this kit and apart from a couple of bits of filling and sanding I've had no problems at all.
