Eduard Bf110E Lt. Felix-Maria Brandis.
Posted by Rambo on Wednesday, August 08, 2018 7:02 PM

Alright my Eduard BF110E is finished. I built it for the Aces on the wrong side of history GB, build log for her is there. Tried a few new things one is these aerobouns figures that have outstanding detail, secound is this krycell precision ice and snow next time I use it I will use hairspray instead of clearcoat to fix it still I like the outcome. So since this GB is about the aces heres a bit of info on Felix Maria Brandis. Source Osprey Arctic Bf109 and Bf110 aces.  Felix-Maria Brandis was born on 9 September 1916 at Ahaus. He received his flying training at Luftkriegsschule 1 at Dresden from 14 September 1939. Brandis was serving with JG 77 in early 1941. He was assigned to a Bf 110 Zerstörerkette, established for coastal patrol missions, based at Kirkenes in Norway. By the implementation of Operation Barbarossa, the invasion of Russia, the unit had been expanded to Staffel strength and designated 1.(Z)/JG 77. Leutnant Brandis had assumed command of the unit by this time. On 2 February 1942, Brandis was returning at low-level from a train-busting mission along the railway line south of Murmansk when the Staffel encountered bad weather. Their own base was closed so the unit diverted to Rovaniemi. In the zero visibility conditions, Brandis failed to return. It was later established he had crashed near Olanga. His Radio Op., Feldwebel Herbert Baus survived, but wounded. Oberleutnant Brandis was posthumously awarded the Deutsches Kreuz in Gold on 6 March 1942. Felix Maria Brandis was credited with 14 victories. However, some sources credit him with a victory total as high as 18 or even 25. 

So here she is WA pick what ever photo you want for the 1st page.

Having owned a football team worth of tail waggers: there's a test.

Stand on your porch at dinner and call the name out over and over.

That turned out really nice and I really like the figures - adds so much to a vingette/diorama.  Especially the pooch!

Thanks,

John

Fine work on this build. Snow does look realistic. I think it's a shame that it covers a lot of the paint/camo that also looks really good to me.

Love the pooch.

Thanks guys. I really like this snow product, I was thinking of just having snow on the ground at first but quickly changed my mind thinking that wouldn't look right. 1(Z)/JG77 was stationed in Finland up by the artic circle all reference photos I have in my books show snow cover. I love putting my builds in dioramas only have a few that aren't in one and this build too me wouldn't look as good just by itself.
