John, that mantlet cover looks good. One detail to add. See on yout turret there are a series of little indented rectangles in a ring around the outside of the mantlet. If you look closely at your most excellent photo of that Magach, you can see those are for clips that hold the edges of the cover down on the turret itself. Important detail.

Thank you for your comment, GM!

Man, now how do I fix that cover?...Even if I can add a gum wrapper(s) to extend the tarp, any suggestions on how to make the connection to the turret look realistic?

Steve, Greysnake, and CN, well done on those kits. They are all super nice and completed very quickly. You three have set the bar pretty high for the rest of us.

Installment 9 - 

I extended the gun cover; but now, I have to figure out how to realistically make it look clipped to the turret....Any tips on how to do that?

Here's a model I built a while back.

After WW2 the Avia factory in Czechoslovakia built Gs called the S-99.

Those had the DB 605 engine.

When the supply of those ran out, the factory built the S-199 with the Jumo 211 engine. Lower performance, used in the He 111 among others. Big fat paddle prop.

Israel bought 25 in 1948. Modi Alon scored the IAF's first victory, shooting down two Egyptian C47 bombers over Tel Aviv on June 3, 1948.

Welcome Joe, your on the front page.

 

I saw a documentry about the start of the IAF and they showed the guyes going to collect the "109's" aswell B17's and how they were used during the first of the arab/israeli conflicts.

 

The planes that were assembled in a closed hanger had no time to do post assembly testflights, the first combat sorty was the testflight.

Quite interesting.

Thank you!

I don't know much about the Isreali Air Force and it's history, looking forward to learning more through this group build.
