  1. Dear Gaz, the whole scene looks very convincing and the chair gives some extra attraction to the whole appearance. There are some pics around showing Weyroster "relaxing" in that chair. The finish on the 109 is very even and exact executed especially the zig-zag patteron on the wings. What kit did you use for the 109.. I only had troubles with the different pitch of the prop blades as this seemed to be exaggerated, even for variable pitch, but maybe that is due to my kink in vision....or did I miss that detail on the referrence pics? Regards Joachim
  2. This is real great craftmanship and excellent fotography. Very well done. At first I thought it were real planes! Excellent!!
  3. Anybody out there who wants the Germany supplied decals of the new Revell edition early P-51D for the decal sheet of the US-edition (should include FRENESI !!). 32nd scale of course.
  4. Great Job on a nice spit. I think there are some colour pics of the plae and its pilot in one of the Ethell/Sands books. Jean, it is great and encouraging to learn that scale models are watched and appreciated by relatives of former pilots.
  5. Very impressive!! Well done.
  6. Although my heart bleeds every time I see derelict aircraft- even as a modell - , this is a real stunning piece of workmanship!
  7. This is a VERY IMPRESSIVE Model! Well done!
  8. Hi Fran, really a very convincing build. Great!! Cheers Joachim
  9. A very clean build on an obviously complicated kit. Well done!
  10. Jeroen, that looks really fantastic. A nice looking Tripala and a great display. Comparing the film with some of todays movies...the computer doesn't always improve things and in the old days they had real flying aircraft and people who knew the matter as advisors. Congratulations!! Joachim
  11. Really a nice job. I like the cowling area, you nearly can smell the oil...
  12. Hi John, that is a nice Spit. I like the exhaust stains!
  13. O am really looking forward to this built........got the kit in my stash too
  14. This was really a nice build and though the Gladiator is certainly not my favourite biplane - I much more prefer the Gauntlet - as soon as I had purchased it in December I had to start with it. I nearly - apart from some small additions including strenghening of the undercarriage and adding more dihedral to the lower wing - as I had for both the concern of being too weak and sagging after completion - built it out of the box. The sutton harness was DIY as are the cockpit hatches, the starter crank and the rigging. Here pre-stretched clear plastic strips from old school binders came to use as they perfectly straighten after fixing when a heat source is placed nearby for a second time. As I love silver wings and was relieved that all metal panels were painted aluminium with the Gladiator I chose K6130 - the second production aircraft as it flew with 72 Sqn. This was the Flight Commanders (A-Flight?) aircraft, hence the red tail sections. The wing guns were intentionally omissed as my referrence foto showed them not to be installed at least during the foto-session. I might add the note that the exhaust collector ring was painted with several layers of silver, burnt iron and Klear in succession, including some patches of clear blue to give the impression of that heat resistant steel. Panel lines and main part of weathering were made primarily with a Faber Castell PITT artist Pen No. 117 walnut brown. Except small stencils no decals were used. Humbroln MET191 was used for the silver dope.Enjoy Cheers Joachim
