Thank you :)
I will start with the ROG F-8.

And hope I can get on in a timely manner.

Some work on the engine and fuselage, not happy with the XF-63 as substitution for RLM 66. So the first 1/48's will be in XF-50.

If You could help:
Need some references pictures to do the 1/32 engine justice. In this scale it is screaming for add on details even with the xlnt level allready provided.

All comments wellcome :)

Very Best Regards
Johan

Nice start Johan, looking forward to seeing this kit. I am thinking about grabbing one myself. I had heard that engine was nice, it certainly looks it.

Hi again,

The FW190 A5 (Eduard 82143) is all new tooling!
And comes with 2 cockpt tubes and 3 alternative options for the instrument panels.

Preprinted PE.

Decals on flat parts.

Molded (very good) detail.

I will try to combine decals & molded, this gives me a spare for future use :)

Very Bet Regards
Johan

Say Rooster, I'd like to change one of my entries for the group build. I had originally intended to build a 1/48 Airfix Bf109-E4/Trop, but I'd like to pull that back and exchange it with a real hangar queen I've had sitting unopened on my shelf forever, a 1/48 HobbyCraft Bf-109C. I was going to finish it in Spanish Civil War markings; even though this build is "Pride of The Luftwaffe," that should be okay, right? I mean, it's the same plane, and a lot of these pilots (Condor Legion) went on to fly for the Luftwaffe, or were already Luftwaffe pilots.

That's looking good Eric, you don't see many 109Cs !

You must be close to closing it up.

Nice model of a 190 John, it looks right, with good scale appearance. You've made me feel all 190ish now, I think I'll have to go and build me one !
