  1. My plan is to crank this out by November then start something really big. The Fa330 always interested me as a unique aircraft with an equally unique mission. This was towed by a U-Boat so the pilot could see beyond U-Boat horizon view and report any enemy activity. Finally there is a lot of rigging and I will use either RB or GasPatch turnbuckles. This will get me feeling comfortable for my WNW build, next on the bench. That's right Kiwi Mike...no typo here. 30 minutes into this build I was already regretting this. This aircraft is mostly tubular and the parts
  2. 1:32 Arado Ar 234B-2/S3 Fly Model Catalogue # 32025 Available from Fly Model for £70.90 (at time of writing) The Arado Ar 234 was the world's first, purpose designed and built jet bomber. Its high ceiling capability also saw it operate mainly as a photo reconnaissance aircraft. Lack of room within the fuselage saw bomb pylons being fitted to the underside of the engine nacelles. The dual Jumo 004 engines and operational ceiling saw the type operate with almost total impunity over the UK in the latter stages of the war. It has the distinction of being the last Luftwaffe
  3. 1/32 Arado Ar 234 B-2 German Reconnaissance Bomber Fly kit # 32003 Available from Fly for € 55,- / 78 dollars Introduction I’m writing this review from a personal point of view, since LSM colleague is writing a review on this kit’s brother; the Ar 234 B2N. At the moment we are being spoiled to the brim with exotic and huge large scale releases. Some expected. Some not so much. Who would have dreamt to see a 1/32 Lancaster in his lifetime of B-17? And for the Luft ’46 fans a Ho229 or He219? Either of both would have kept me quiet for a decade. Well… maybe not. Being a Lu
  4. 1:32 Hawker Hurricane Mk. IIc Fly Model Catalogue # 32012 Available from Fly Model for around £30 The venerable Hawker Hurricane was the very last in a generation of fighter designs that could trace its roots back to the machines that fought in the skies during the Great War. Whilst countries such as Germany were taking advantage of newer, all metal, stressed skin designs, Hawker soldiered on with its hybrid of both old and new. Designed by Sydney Camm, the prototype machine first flew in late 1935, before eventually seeing active service in late 1937. Origina
  5. Hi guys, It was not the Ho229 that pulled me away from my He219. Not the Airfix Typhoon. It is the Ar 234! What a lovely kit. I started adding the resin instrument housings to the back of the instrument panel and just couldn't stop. The only thing I'll add are HGW seat belts. I believe 109 harnesses will be correct.
  6. 1:32 Westland Wessex HC.2 Fly Model Catalogue 32010 Available from Fly for 2066,00 CZK (approx. £55 at time of writing) I’ve said to a few people that the Wessex appears to be typically British in appearance, but is literally only by design, and to be more accurate – RUSSIAN design! Of course, the Wessex was actually a licence-built version of the Sikorsky H-34, built by Westland Aircraft. The Wessex was slightly different to its American-built Sikorsky cousin, in that rotor power was generated by a turbo-shaft engine, rather than the piston engine of the Russ
  7. 1:32 Arado Ar 234B-2 instrument panel Yahu Catalogue # YML3201 Available from StoryModels for £5.19 This one came just too late for me to be able to use on my own Ar 234 model, which is slated for publication in issue #47 of Military Illustrated Modeller. For my build, I used the new Ar 234B-2/N kit from Fly Model (reviewed here), and this new release from Yahu is for that same kit. Had I been able to use it at the time, it would've been sure to add some real magic to that busy-looking cockpit which is already supplied with the kit. Even though this is classed as an 'instrument
  8. Hi folks, Here it is, freshly finished and photographed for Military Illustrated Modeller. You'll find the build log HERE. In all, it's mostly been a great build. It has been a little frustrating in places, but that's the nature of a short-run kit. I have to say that Fly have done a pretty good job with those, and if you're contemplating getting it.....don't....just go and BUY! Even though she's a pretty big bird, she's still sort of dwarfed a little in stature by the Dornier Do 335!
  9. Hi folks, I have two mag projects running concurrently. One is the Mosquito, and the other is the brand new Fly Model Arado Ar 234B-2N Nachtjäger. I will more than likely do this in a single green upper colour, but using some stylising to make it look a little different. This is the scheme I'm thinking of doing. It;s a lighter green than shown here.....and NO splinter! The B-2/N ha TWO crew positions, and that cannon pod below the belly. Despite the Fly Model kit being a short-run kit, and obviously going to be compared to the MDC kit, I really can't wait to sink my
  10. Welcome! In my workshop arises model aircraft Arado Ar-234 issued by the company FLY 1:32 scale nr. kat. 32008. My choice fell on the machine Ar-234 B-2N "Nachtigall" W.Nr. 140145 / SM + FE. On my blog is a series of images to quickly submitted Arado Ar-234 B-2N, without the radar antenna. Link to blog: http://kobzamodellfabrik.blogspot.com/2014/11/arado-ar-234-132-fly-warsztat.html The construction of the model I started from the chambers of the chassis, which look so.
  11. 1:32 Arado Ar 234B-2N Fly Model Catalogue # 32008 Available from Fly Model for 1640.00CZK (approx £47) The Arado Ar 234 was the world's first, purpose designed and built jet bomber.

  12. 1:32 Focke Achgelis Fa 330 Fly Model Catalogue # 32007 Available from Fly Model for 372.00CZK Let me set the scene for you: Sunday, 9th November, 2014, IPMS Scale Model World, Telford. I was sitting at a table in the Hall 1 refreshment area with Webmeister James Hatch and administrator Jeroen Peters, both, I have to say, resplendent in their HKM/Large Scale Modeller 'T' shirts. We were having a general conversation on modelling – or was it the rather well-endowed young lady selling the coffees? Whatever, I am sure they won't mind me recording the fact that I detected evidence
  13. Rotachute Mk.I: Raoul Hafner's aircraft Fly Model Catalogue # 32004 Available from Hannants for £19.30 Raoul Hafner was an Austrian engineer who left his home country in 1933, and continued his developmental works on rotary winged aircraft in Britain. Raoul's work included a system to deliver a combat-ready soldier, accurately to the battlefield. This became known as the Rotachute, and at a time when parachute silk was in short supply, the British establishment took the Rotachute project seriously, and ordered trials of this rather unique rotary kite. Hafner, despite being Austr
