Henschel Hs 123 A-1 - GASPATCH MODELS 1/48 WIP
Posted by vags on Monday, June 19, 2017 9:16 AM

Hi all,

I am new here but not that new in the modelling "business" since I have been building model airplanes for more than 25 years. Anyway, I have been meaning to join this forum and now there is a very good reason since the long awaited Hs 123 Gaspatch Models kit has been quite recently released and I immediately took the chance to start building two. They are both A-1s but judging from the quality I am getting so far I will surely build a B-1 and maybe an A-0 (future release) as well. Enjoy:

This is looking amazing so far! I LOVE that idea of taping things to the box top and then later cutting it up into individual parts. Chris

Ah, another build that I'm very interested in following. Already fascinated by your explanations of the WIP.

This looks like a kit that might build into a stable mate for my stringbag - if I ever resurrect the Swordfish from its lamentable fate.

Well, I was "absorbed" by other forums and did not realise that FSM has one until two years ago but then my wife got pregnant so I resumed modelling quite recently almost due to this model.

I've never heard of Gaspatch models.  They look like great kits.

Gaspatch Models is a very young but promising company. This is just their 2nd release but even the first one (The Salmson 2A2) is an excellent kit. The Henschel stands boldly against Tamiya and other premium kit manufactures mainly because the owner/managing director and most of the staff are modellers themselves.

I'll add my thanks for the considerable effort you must have made to show us this WIP. Your descriptions and images really do help me and, I'm sure, others.

Your attention to detail and the polish with which you put together each of the sections/parts you've shown us is superlative. I'm also grateful that your use of the photo editing software you work with is quite accomplished and makes your WIP images easy to follow and very elucidating.

Thank you for the time and trouble in posting this excellent WIP. You've inspired me to carry on and keep taking extra care in the difficult project I'm now undertaking.( a less than perfect C-119 kit )  Until viewing this i was ready to give up and just throw the thing together but now i see that every model deserves my best TLC.
