Default Scale Model Gallery.

Post your completed models here, I'll start off with a 1/48 Airfix Me109E, flown by Major Adolf Galland, JG26 - Audembert, France, December 1940


The black tube protuding through the front screen is a telescope that Galland used to ID aircraft at long range.










Minor disaster evident here, when doing the final detailing I managed to break off the pilot tube and both aileron mass balances.., ah well, next time I'll leave them off until the very last.


Just need to buy some thin monofiliment thread to do the antenna wire.

Well Done.

That looks really good.

With the antenna, just cut off a bit of plastic and heat it, stretch the plastic to the right length and BAM! You have an antenna.

Thanks.
It's too hard to get the scale right with stretched sprue, so I'll just get some monofiliment of the correct diameter.
On the other end of the detail scale, so to speak, my Tamiya 1/32 A6M2b Zero kit arrived the other day and it comes with an antenna wire in the kit, along with several hundred other parts including hinges, rods, shafts, springs, micro magnets, wafer thin cowlings and assorted photo etched bits and bobs, it's been added to the stash with the Tamiya 1/32 Mk XVIe Spitfire, the three 1/48 Tamiya Lancasters and the 1/32 Revel He111 and Ju88.

Nice, I am keen to see the JU88.

Ok, so I didn't make this model, but it is technically a scale model...

Love them! Do you ever paint the little pilots that they include? I never paint mine. I display them with the landing gears on, looks stupid with a pilot in it lol.

Same here, I rarely even remove the pilot figure from the sprue.

I've got a trumpeter 1/24 spitfire here, and it includes 3 pretty highly detailed resin pilots.
Haven't even started that kit yet, or the 1/32 tamiya spitfire VIII, or the 1/72 vulcan or the 1/32 F86, or the 1/32 kinetic F16 etc etc

Hoping to get back in to it this year, after moving house I have 3 hours less commute to do each day!

I've got the Airfix 1/24 Mk.V, the pilot figure is rather average, I've also got the Tamiva 1/32 Mk.VIII and the Mk.XVIe along with the P51D, A6M2b Zero and the new F4U-1 Birdcage, along with the rest of the stash....


On the bench there is a 1/48 Hurricane Mk.I, Spitfire Mk.IX, Typhoon Mk.Ib and 1/35 Pz.IV Ausf.D, Panther Ausf.A and Tiger I.

Yeah I built the airfix 1/24 MkI. Basically the same kit.

Impressive looking stash! Mine are all still boxed up from the move.

Problem with a stash like this is deciding what to start next, I've got three tanks and three planes at various stages of painting, detailing and weathering, all three tanks are Axis and all three planes are Allied, I feel like building a nautical subject but the only one I've got all the bits for is an Itelari 1/35 Schnellboot and it's too big to fit on my workbench with the way I've got it set up, might start the Cyberhobby Ju88A-4 instead.

That's awesome! I used to love building models as a kid, would love to take it up again if I had the time

Default Eduard 1/48 Spitfire Mk.IXc, 453 Squadron RAAF.

Finished another one, the following blurb came from the decal sheet.

"Spitfire Mk.IXc, MK260, FU-K, 453 Squadron RAAF.
This aircraft was delivered to 9 Maintenance Unit on 4 February 1944. It was first allocated to 504 Squadron RAF on 25 February 1944. On 15 June 1944 it was received by 453 Squadron RAAF and was allocated the aircraft identification letter 'K'. Three weeks later, on 6 July 1944, the aircraft failed to return from operations."



More photo's can be seen here.
