    Soo.... What did you just get???

    Visited the Dutch IPMS nationals yesterday. Wasn't planning on bying one, but could not let this deal slip... scored the HKM B17G for 160 euro ($180). All I can say; wow what a kit! I need to invest in a paint company when I start this one!

    No, no, no. This can't be real... please tell me this is 1/16 scale?! You're an absolutely insane man Peter. I mean, in a good way insane, but still. No words

    Nice! Looks like a very clean and well build model to me. Should build one myself sometime....
  7. Hi Ernie, I have the part ready for print at shapeways. I'm looking at possibilities to make it available for those interested, but it takes some time. If i get that working I will also create a little instruction sheet to go with the IP. I'll let you know
  8. Yeah, I have the same issue. If I turn my mobile to landscape, then the pictures are in the right proportion. Clicking on the pictures also works. So, it's a site issue of some sort...
  9. Well there she is. A bit late in the weekend, but finally had time to take pictures and post them here. This is my latest build. I started this build in June 2016 but it stalled due to becoming a father again, so the better part of 2017 was a lost year for modelling. Anyway, it doesn't matter, because I finished the bird! When I first heard of this conversion I had to have it. I had seen pictures of it as a kid and it always struck me as such an advanced design, almost alien like. I bought the excellent book about this plane from Cristoph Vernaleken and Martin Handig. These men have done a lot of research on this subject and their book and website http://ju388.de is invaluable if you want to model this plane. But I have to say, the book is not written with the modeler in mind. So I think that about 30/40% of my time went into research. John form AIMS did a stellar job in researching and creating the conversion, but there was still room for improvement.. With a lot of searching on the web, visiting several obscure forums, and with a little help from people here, I had enough info to make the most accurate representation of it to my ability. In the process you learn a lot about your subject which is one aspect I like about modeling. Anyway, I'm not going to repeat all the steps I have taken in the build. If you're interested you can visit my WIP-thread here on LSM: Linkor on LSP: Link where I first started my WIP. But I'll give a short summary of what I used for this build. Model: Revell Ju88 A4 Conversion: AIMS Ju388 L-1 Aftermarket: Henri Daehne propellers Anttena: scratch build with Albion Alloy fit and slide tubes Instrument panel: Designed and 3D printed instrument panel Painting: Mr. Paint (primarily) Weathering: AK Interactive Paneliner So, there you have it. Without further ado, here are the pictures. Please feel free to ask questions or give critique (don't hold back, I can take it). Wouter
