  1. Wow, that's deep... So deep, I can only just make out Adele rolling in it. But seriously Man, how do you find the time to get all this done?
  2. For the crazed canopy look... Try applying translucent 3m sticky tape or the frosted clear adhesive Schoolbook cover material (called Contact here in Au) to the inside of the canopy. This way it won't affect the finish permanently. S
  3. I am putting them on my Fw190 in the Resin Group Build Mark... I think that in the larger scales that we work with, adding rivet detail just makes for a more detailed impression on the overall build. Even though it's quite tedious and time consuming, but still worth the effort. S
  4. That's what I might have expected... Fuselage seems to be a re-cast of the Hasegawa original, with the cut-outs up front for the exhaust louvers and the different hatches re-scribed. Also makes sense if it needs to mate with the Hasegawa wings and canopy (I'm tipping that the Revell canopy won't fit). Keeping the alignment pins from the original fuselage parts makes complete sense. A bit of clean-up here and there, and you're good to go. S
  5. Looks all good and logical... Any warpage on the fuselage parts?
  6. An older story that has been given new life now that Researchers have the parts laid out... Thought to be OGefr Bruno Kr├╝ger of 1./JG102, MIA on 27/11/44 in Bf109G-6 W.Nr 20672 (Stammkennziechen "SL+DF) Blue skies... S
  7. Anyone else hate adding rivets...? So it's on to the resin components. This is the Eduard engine crankcase, removed from it's casting block and with a couple of ancillary parts also added. Painted with an undercoat of Tamiya AS12 spray Silver, it looks very bright at the minute but this will be the base for an overcoat of half Tamiya acrylic Black paint and half Black watercolour pencil mix, which will hopefully buff off to show highlights of Silver underneath. Shown in the top photo is the equivalent Hasegawa part, and the difference in detail that the resin allows is pretty amazing. S
  8. Nice choice... It will be great to see one of these built up, and see how the resin parts fit with the donor kit's wings and cowl etc. S
  9. And that's their dilemma... Larger scale = more detail. Revell already covers the Casual Modeller with their price point, and the Enthusiasts like you or me for the most part are happy to pay more for either resin sets to make up what we consider a shortfall in detail, or a kit with Tamiya-like quality. As Eduard already have some lovely resin sets out there to fit the Revell '109, it seem like they've already chosen their place in the market for 1/32 Messers. S
  10. Even before Dave's confirmation I would have thought it unlikely that Eduard would dip their toes in the '109 pool again... They were called out on their 1/32nd '109E canopies, and then embarrassed by the 1/48th kit's wing dimension issues. That's probably enough to warn anyone away from pitching to scale Aircaft modelling's arguably most knowledgable group of Enthusiasts. This, and probably Revell's price point for their Bf109 kits, makes it not worth bothering. S
  11. Saw that, great build... The cowl panels will be left open, length-wise at the business end the Hasegawa and Revell kits agree, but there's a millimetre width difference at the top of the firewall... the Hasegawa is slightly wider here and the error runs the length of the fuselage down to the tail. It's hardly noticeable (I've never seen it mentioned elsewhere in the decade or more the kit's been out) but you'll see it if the Eduard cowls are buttoned up on the Hasegawa. But still, to put that gorgeous Eduard motor in and close it up would be criminal. S
  12. Well, the kit's not made of resin itself, but a good portion of the contents will be... Standard Hasegawa kit, with added Eduard BMW801 radial engine, Eagle Editions Cockpit and wheels, Henri Daehne spinner and propeller set, and possibly some other assorted parts from the Aires D-9 super set. I had always wondered why no-one had bothered with an engine set for this kit, so now I guess we'll see if the Eduard motor will fit (my initial measurements say it will). Work has commenced with the wing panel inserts for the gun covers, and about a half-hour's worth of rivets in the same area.
  13. Geez... That's two weeks work? All I can manage in that time is a few rivets on the underside of an Fw190 wing. Great start Cees! S
  14. You do see the occasion hot Wife / Girlfriend at Model Shows... But usually they have Jeroen's thousand-yard stare... like they've just survived hand-to-hand combat. Or the half-yearly Shoe sales. What patient creatures Women are! S
