Knox, 

You need some early makes.  At least a B in Condor Legion markings.

Bish,

I now have a reason to build the second 110 in my stash.  I hope I didn't lose the canopy mask set for it.  I'm in.

I have one bf-109 and a me-262 in my stash .  I have built 5 109's and a 262 in my Tenure with fsm . Time for a MBB F-104G it's been a while plus I'm in jet mode.

Well, looking through the stash I only seem to have 109's and didn't find the 410. I'll look in another place but I'm not confident about it. So it looks like a probable for another 109. Either the 1/32 Hase B or 1/72 Airfix B.

Still getting a Walrus for the Supermarine build though.

I have a Tamiya 1/48 BF109e-4 that’s been calling to me. Please count me in Bish.

I agree. I know that Modelsvit has a C and D model.

Just stumbled onto this thread, Bish. I have several 109s and a 110 in my stash. What I'd really like to find is a Hobby Craft HA-1112 Buchon. Does the finished aircraft need to be in Luftwaffe livery or can it bear the marking of any Messerschmidt operator?

frank, no, doesn't have to be in German markings.

 

I built the AMG 1/72nd 109B last year, lovely little kit. They do an A, B, C and D in both 72nd and 48th. And they have re-released the C and D in SCW markings.

Well, this is what I have in the stash. The "Emil" is already started, the fuselage halves are joined but that's it.

Nice variety there frank, and the Emil sounds fine.

I'm gettin' ready! I have the Eduard canopy masks for the builds I hope to complete next year. The masks may not be for the exact kit I'm going to build, but I'll make 'em work.

I'm going to challenge myself, I think - I've signed on for the Supermarine GB, but I'm thinking I can find time for this one, as well. So, count me in, model to be selected soon! (Again, very thin inventory right now, getting back into the hobby!)

Ha!  Well, given that I've yet to work out my pace and routines yet, I don't want to overcommit.  I'm SUPPOSED to travel heavily for work and if things miraculously clear up next year, I could be on the road a lot, so....anyway.

Checked the stash and realized that one of the first kits I bought to use for practice/etc. is an Airfix 1/72 Bf109G-6, so put me down for that.  I'll save it for next year and start on something else!  (Actually, I just washed all the sprues of a Tiffy Mk.Ib, so looks like that's going to be first out of the gate.)

Bish: Xenon55 was kind to exchange this Bf-109 that he wasn't going to build for a kit I wasn't going to built- so we're both happy and I have something to enter. 

You did say foreign markings were kosher- the Germans sent the Japanese five Bf-109E-7s. I'd like to go with this aircraft if okay by you.

Gamera, yep, that would be fine. And crossovers will be allowed if your thinking of doing it for another Japanese GB. And John, be great to have you on board.

Bish: Thanks! 

Steve: Actually they just painted over the German insignia with Japanese hinomaru and left the camo intact. I'm not sure what happened to the aircraft and if they later were repainted or not. It's a question I'm going to have to do more research on.

I had an interesting idea for this build a 1/24 KR-200.  What's that you say?  It was a micro car built for the German postwar market.  Gunze Sangyo made a kit of it, but right now prices are making it unobtanium at the moment.  Here's a pic.

Check to see if the DB 601 would fit in the Tony.

Or maybe I don't need to do any research... That covers pretty much everything I needed to know and a lot more! THANKS Jack!!! 

Steve: Could be! 

Lew: Now that's cool! I saw one of those cars in a museum as well as a Messerschmitt sewing machine! Guess times were tough after the war and you had to build whatever sold. 

John: Cool! Always loved the look of the 410.
