Ovidiu Huma Mate ... no offence but what you got there is a MIG-21 BIS not a PF, [img1]
12. August at 17:49:21
Jens I'm not a specialist for MiG 21 or jets in general, Eduard writes MiG 21 PF, then I write it without control ;) Thanks for the hint

Project: Fairey Swordfish Mk.I in scale 1:32
1:32 Fairey Swordfish Mk.I (Trumpeter 03207)1:32 SWORDFISH Mk.I (Eduard BIG3285)
31. July at 20:17:14 Share
Thomas Bischoff a British beauty! Nice start - count me in!
31. July at 20:21:20
Jens Willkommen Thomas, ich hoffe ich kann in der kurzen Zeit die wichtigsten Sachen zeigen, mehr als 3 Wochen habe ich für den Bau nicht geplant ;)
31. July at 20:34:53
01. August at 13:18:58
Thomas Bischoff nur drei Wochen! Das würde mir knapp mal reichen die Schachtel zu öffnen :)
01. August at 13:49:57
Björn Svedberg This I want to see! Taking a seat. :)
01. August at 14:07:19
Jens Welcome Igor and Björn :)
Hello Thomas, I can set such a time limit because I have no other obligations, at almost 40 degrees in the shade then the 23 degrees at the workbench are an invitation, tomorrow I get my favorite again under the sec adhesive, Tamiya, then should it really run like warm cheese :)
01. August at 16:20:16
Jens In a construction report, a colleague called the Trumpeter Swordfish a Tamiya copy in 1:32,
in the plastic parts probably right, as far as the tension but far from it
Spreading a bit of EZ Line between the surfaces is one thing, putting such etched parts between the points on voltage is a bit different
and in terms of time, not to be underestimated
the pictures below cost me the whole night from 22.00 to 7.20
1. The pick-up points of the struts are designed either too flat or the connections for the struts clearly too thick ..., but every tenth of the struts changed, also change the geometry of the surfaces to each other, is extreme in the outer struts, the result, you can really fit the etched parts,
but then you have not yet the surfaces on the fuselage, and there complain the colleagues because of the stability (I'm just surprised :D)
The etched parts look really hard when you cut them, as if those made by Dragon 8o, you want to then position them are the soft as lead wire,
To straighten up these deformations and still keep those things tidy takes a bit of patience and a lot of time
My winners were almost there on the limit and still missing a lot of clamping plates .....
Tool for cutting, a goldsmith's metal shears and smoothing the board residues the Proxxon cutting disc
for gluing Pattafix sec. Glue and! Plastic remnants dissolved in Tamiya speed glue are a real help in aligning and cutting parts
05. August at 11:29:11
Jens Time 2 pictures to the tension with the Trumpeter parts (PE 4 and PE 8) and probably also a clear sign that the "hangers" after completion are not only due to their own weight
an etched part with 3 fixed points, the shorter part fits without any corners, the longer part is then definitely too long
to cut the armor steel is still going on, but then in the mm areas to bend clean could with home remedies something the precision neglect
05. August at 14:18:45
Spanjaard looking really nice Jens
11. August at 14:06:19
Clifford Keesler Awesome Jens! I love the old String Bag.
11. August at 18:17:11
James C Watching this one as well.
11. August at 19:39:52
Jens Thank you friends for the words :) Unfortunately, the Swordfish has a forced break at the moment, I have taken an Airfix Kit of Walrus for the workbench :D, also very convincing what Airfix delivers there

11. August at 13:59:15
Spanjaard very nice. nice work on that grass, and of course in the model
11. August at 14:01:23
Timothy Heimer I like it!
11. August at 14:24:38
Jens Thank you Timothy and Spanjaard for your opinion :) the kit is really very nice, with small flaws such as burr or shape shift, but very nicely done,
it will not be the last baker of mine ;)
@ Spanjaard the grass is ready bought (10 euros per piece), if I find the manufacturer you get the link as a PN from me
11. August at 15:07:54
Spanjaard thanks Jens!

Rene Scheiblich Woohoo nailed the paintjob as usual Jens! I'm leaning towards that scheme as well, it looks sleek and badass in black :D
Pity though about the collapsed undercarriage. I hope I remember to use some 2k glue with mesh for these parts.
30. July at 09:29:34
Jens @ Peter, I'm too fast, because you probably miss a lot, my models have very little response because, the colleagues often need to buy more time than me for the construction :D
@ Rene, the weight makes real concern with the model, even at the end you have the händling rpobleme, the many small parts, I was glad that the Heinkel could then leave the table without further damage ;)
@bobinspokaloo not many planes have earned the attribute "Sexy", but the Heinkel 219 is an interesting, in the colors very exciting and in the scale also huge plane and it has been really fun despite the glitches :)
30. July at 11:38:50
Bart Goesaert And a beautysalon it is... Nice work
31. July at 07:38:42
Bryn Crandell Very nice. Are the antennae photo etch? They look real fiddly. Great paint job!
31. July at 13:39:59
Jens Thank you colleagues for the nice words :)
@Bryn Crandell the antennas are original Revell plastic
31. July at 14:46:47
Rene Scheiblich Thought as much. Sleek looking but a tad bit on the heavy side :)
I'm worried about all those delicate parts sticking around everywhere as well.

Peter, interesting alternative use for the antennae… :D Don't forget the "remove before flight" labels though… Don't want to go hunt bombers with some undies on the windscreen :S
01. August at 21:12:45
Peter Hardy Especially 1945 undies! The whole windscreen would be "Bombay Bloomers"!

Jens, I have a history of destroying fine plastic antennas. How did you seperate from the sprues?
01. August at 23:15:22
Jens Hello Peter, that's easy :)
From CMK a fine saw to separate it from the frame and then with a scalpel easily scraping and scratching The link is intended only as an aid, so that is understood exactly what I meant Ultra smooth saw (both sides) 5pcs (CMK H1005, No)

No Ultra smooth saw (both sides) 5pcs (CMK H1005)

14. May 2016 at 11:31:26
Martien Lourens Ich bin seit 2 jahre kein profi mehr aber hobby airbrusher. :) Das gibt kein stress :). Aber du hast schöne linien, kringen gezogen. Ohne unterbrechungen und spetter. Das ist doch mal was und konsentration. Übung bezahlt sich immer aus. Oder du bist eim natur talent. Ich habe die linien nicht kontroliert. :) :) :) Ein fehler in linien sieht man gleich. :)
14. May 2016 at 12:42:30
Jens alles ist stück für stück gemacht , ausser am Leitwerk, da habe ich Linien gezogen,aber, ich habe eben bei den neuen Bilder aber dann doch einen kleinen Felck entdeckt, da habe ich wohl ohne Luftstop gedreht :(

09. July at 04:19:49
Jens Thank you, thank you, thank you :) James C, Thomas Bischoff,
Christian, Spanjaard, Clifford Keesler, the model was already created in 2013, at that time I had as a template a photo of a prey MiG 3 on a wagon in Russia, described as a plane from Stalingrad, but it was originally from the Baltic Front and was there with the change to Hurican to Stalingrad delivered, at the time the production of the MiG 3 was already stopped, as I said, the model was built in 2013 in the summer ;) and was yesterday with an exhibition near Leipzig

09. June at 19:58:39

09. June at 20:00:57

09. June at 20:58:35
James C Off to a great start Jens. Cool subject as well.
09. June at 21:31:51
Björn Svedberg A really nice start, Jens! I'm also taking a seat. ;)
09. June at 22:16:23
Jens Thank you for the curiosity I am pleased your interest, but with me it is usually very fast and the paint is done :D

Well, on a weekend but done :D, the tank really fits very well, real problems are just the distribution of weight (according to Revell 50 grams, but it may be much more like who can gleit the bottom plate of the cockpit and lead nevertheless the motor gondolas cram full) the chassis makes then because of the weight but own worry, on the left I always had to stick the connections, the wheels were still free, now I have stuck to the Ahsen, but brings a little more strength, Colors inside RLM 66 Gunze Hobby Color, chassis RLM 02 as well Gunze "H" colors, Flecktarn RLM 75/76 from Gunze Mr. Color, C Code and compliant with universal thinner, clear coat before the Decals Gunze GX 100, also diluted with Universal, Matt lacquer as completion of Gunze Hobby Color
11. June at 08:52:39
Jens Now a few little things that I have noticed in the pictures until now, Big pictures with small consequences :D
11. June at 08:54:51
Thomas Bischoff for example the front cockpit does not fit well ... nice work Jens!
18. June at 20:24:11
James C Cool looking aircraft. Nice looking build Jens.
18. June at 21:27:27
Jens Thank you colleagues for the nice words :) @ Thomas, the Tamiya Quick Glue did not do it all and I was too fast with the pictures :)

gorbygould Stunning!
That camo is mind-blowingly good!
17. June at 18:15:03
Jens Thank you gorbygould, it is a relatively simple freehand work and sprayed almost only a strength of lines and circles in RLM 76 on a RLM 75 base
17. June at 18:28:36
gorbygould The theory may be simple, but in practice….
17. June at 19:47:05
Jens The color and pressure of the airgun must be right, the distance to the surface determines the overall picture, practice everything on a glass or mirror, if you can work cleanly on the material it is only amusing on plastic
17. June at 20:13:22
Clifford Keesler Beautiful JU-88 Jens, well done.
17. June at 20:20:31
Jens Thanks Clifford :) I am pleased that the Ju 88 like you, some will still arise, unfortunately no night fighters more, or just a few conversions of the G6 with "Berlin" Radar
17. June at 20:29:04
Clifford Keesler I like the night fighter version, to bad they are hard to find.
17. June at 20:33:54
Jens ICM now has some offers, including the G version, plus AIMS and OWL some quick boost, then only the space is missing for all versions :D

Jens The home straight comes slowly into view, with a kit that requires a pure WOW in the box,
but if one devotes himself to the parts, then more of the colloquial Polish term "Kurwa" becomes the companion of the works ....
Therefore my name for the whisk, "Kurwavogel"

be that as it may
Following his motto, the kit again has very nasty surprises in store, the windows of the doors do not fit in the frame, nothing, niggesse, njet, nitschiewo,
Success of the first try, the door on the "dragon side" better the window had gotten glue (Tamiya extra), so grind, polish and patience,
That was about 11 clock yesterday, about 18 clock I was back from my day tour, and wanted to get started ......, fit well, but the body heat was then against any success, the "window" was again cloudy ..., a deep firm "Kurwa", the part in the collection box and happily continue, with the position lights on the engine housings ...., Green first ...., ohhhh, as you know, the Kurwa, does not fit the gówno, files, neee, no longer bock, so a casting a candle and Eduard tried the etched edge forms tried, went quite well, but I also needed some practice, right heat, right size, right pace, and not too forgotten, still in the warm state, so almost immediately after pressing, a turn with the casting, saving the annoying sawing the tiny Fummelteilchen and gives a clean separation point directly on the board :)
So stuck position gluing, windows finished and drann doors, but also there are tensions in the true sense, the dragon side does not want to follow the hull shape, so stuck up or down ....,
okay, nothing shocks me anymore ...
so demaskieren, finally admire the Green Roof, is premiere, I had no model: 1:
and again the Polish phrase of use came with deep grunts over the lips, on the left the Tamiya Kleber had searched the way inwards,
used to grind, even that quickly corrected something, something, there is no more to create, disassembled because I wanted more niggesse

and now comes the final spurt
Flashing lights, mirrors (which are then also self-made), the offer of Kitty Hawk is indeed a nice attempt, but mirrors just look a bit different, the mirror carrier on the cabin, I then made the same, if already frickelstunde, then in the whole : D
The external loads are also still, but since that too was not possible without the use phrase, they are also allowed to hold their position ....
18. May at 10:02:34
Bernhard Schrock …Das ist ein Katzenjammer dieser Bausatz. Sehr schade das alles zu lesen, da Du ja eigentlich schon fast fertig bist. Kenne ich, geht mir manchmal auch genauso. Ich lege in so einem Fall dann die Schrottmühle beiseite und mache mit „Etwas" weiter bei dem ich weiß: „es wird klappen!". Die rote 26 die den Henkel Cup gewonnen hat, war genauso ein Fall. Wie wär's wenn Du Dir den Sieger des Oetker-Preises von 1941 vornimmst. Da hat doch eine Versuchs-190 mit einem 4-Blatt Prop gewonnen, die von Brand (Zwieback!!) gesponsert wurde… Wie hieß nochmal der Pilot? War es nicht Karl W. Itz? Kopf hoch! Wochenende naht!
18. May at 11:04:36
Jens Danke Bernhard aber ich bleibe wohl beim Heli, wenn ich den zur Seite lege, dann gerät der auch in Vergessenheit, ist ja nicht so schlimm, der hat ja auch wirklich freudige Momente zu bieten :)
18. May at 11:41:16

22. May at 10:24:33

.. nur der Sockel gefällt mir gar nicht, wenn ich das so offen sagen darf - ich würd da noch etwas Zeit investieren :)
24. May at 21:55:34
Jens Danke Thomas, freut mich wenn der Heli gefällt :) Mit Dios habe ich es nicht, der Sockel ist ein Brettchen mit Gipsbinden belegt, zu mehr fehlt es an Talent und Handwerk, er sollte nur nicht Nackt vor die Cam, der Drachen behauptet ja das Bild schon extrem
25. May at 01:14:35
Michael Hickey Now that is really nice.
