Tim Heimer I'll take a seat.

Stephan Ryll Oh a lot of nice little parts :) I'll take a seat
28. May at 15:09:06
Thomas Bischoff I'm in too!
28. May at 19:33:04
Alec K Same...
29. May at 01:03:38
Urban Gardini This'll be nice to follow!
29. May at 06:52:18
Kerry COX A great start and I love the Eduard PE. :)
29. May at 07:06:24
Michael Hickey That cockpit looks really nice so far, I can't wait to see you do your magic with the mottling. :)
29. May at 07:14:43
Jens Welcome to board colleagues :)

The fuselage shells ever want spatula and patience, nothing bad and it does not last long :D
@ Michael, the colors are again just lines with color, so nothing special, as a test object for the setting of the paint and thinner, plus the choice of the gun, I have a He 219 in 1: 144 selected, but I'm still not satisfied , Time remains yes and when grinding, I can think about what should still be done :D ;)

Clifford Keesler Cockpit looks great.
29. May at 15:35:42
Maicon Werplotz That camouflage scheme.....wonderfull...and challenging.
29. May at 15:47:43
Jens Hello Maicon, welcome on board, the colors are more fun for me, that's the pleasure of modeling, the spatula and etchings ruin with most of the fun of gluing, but who wants paint on the model, who must bring the sacrifice ;)
29. May at 16:26:35
James C Looking awesome Jens. Will be following this one!
29. May at 18:56:02
Spanjaard I am in :)
29. May at 20:39:35
Jens I'm absolutely not satisfied with the RLM 83, so I work segment by segment until it fits, the Gunze Hobby Color RLM 83 does not work, speckle 4 times as wide as the intended line, as Model Master and the Gun of Tamiya with a nozzle 0.3, pressure 0.8 bar, distance from zero to 3 mm

But what changed the impression again, but will not be seen, the decals break the lines and the yellow fuselage is also as an extra ...
31. May at 15:33:28
Bryn Crandell Looking great so far. The Eduard PE really makes the cockpit pop. Paint can be challenging when it comes to finding the correct hue.
31. May at 17:11:37
Tim Heimer Looking good!
31. May at 20:52:05
Michael Hickey I like your lines over the fuselage , is the join of the wings and tail that good that you can paint them separately and then install them?
1. June at 06:23:32
Jens Hi Michael, the connection of the wing fuselage is cleverly solved so that you can mask the transition, without having to apply on the fuselage itself, the tail fits well, everything is glued with Tamiya adhesive with de, white cover, so no big deal :)
More worry make the antenna carrier "deer antler" that I still need to drill and adjust with cannulas 0.4 :(
1. June at 07:25:28
Michael Hickey I'll have to remember that when I build mine, Thanks mate. :)
1. June at 07:48:01
Clifford Keesler Looking very nice Jens, I like the camo.
2. June at 01:03:37
Martien Lourens Hallo Jens. Du hast was vor. Viel metal teilen. Die anfang sieht schon viel versprechend aus. Die airbrush arbeit ist schon klasse. Werde es mit grossem interesse vervolgen.
2. June at 01:30:10
Jens a complete surprise with this kit, the wing panels of the right surface were like a hand-molded prototypes of a toddler filed, the left side was okay, but also fit only with much reworking. The holes in the chassis shaft would normally have been formed, had to be drilled in total, the burring was a short run model from the 1970s, really bad, but because there are about the Eduard Bf 110 many words, advice and pictures, hab I took it as it comes, probably a kit of the first series :), but we say for the hobby yes also model and not Lego technology :D
2. June at 14:08:27
Jens in the discussions to the Eduard Bf 110 models it is emphasized that the motor gondolas are delivered new and revised in later versions, with my Bf 110 G4 kit I can not recognize it :( this will probably take some time until the public may :- )
4. June at 11:25:06
4. June at 11:58:03
Tim Heimer Wow! I'm sorry to hear of the issues with this! Best of luck Jens!
4. June at 12:47:19
Jens After the real pleasure to bring the hull of the 110 in shape, it went to the surfaces, already at the 2009 presentation, there was huge criticism of the fit, Eduard has responded immediately and probably everything improved, but unfortunately I have probably a kit of purchased first series used, so put glasses on and the radio next to the workbench a little louder, the neighbors must not hear the frustration

but slowly this model finds the affection again, the rough is probably done :) ....
9. June at 08:42:56
Tim Heimer Looks like another modeler is taking a turd and making it a gem.
9. June at 15:50:04
James C Despite the troubles you've had it's looking amazing.
9. June at 18:28:08
Clifford Keesler I agree with James, amazing work.
10. June at 02:40:52
Jens Thanks Kollegn for the nice words but I think the hardest is yet to come, the radar antennas have no positional characteristics and no holding pins, which could then attach everything sorely to end in disaster :D
10. June at 13:02:03
Michael Hickey Looking good Jens, with the radar antenna maybe you can drill four small holes where the radar is supposed to go and drill in the ends of the radar and add a small piece of wire and glue to the nose for strength. :S
11. June at 00:21:57
Jens Thanks and yes Michael, that is the solution and I have already thought, only I am not a watchmaker and 4 times to the point exactly to drill, this is an adventure for me, earlier I said what it is not in Resin or There will be no etched part: D, Today, sometimes I ask myself too much, what the kit does not have, it can not be synonymous ;)
11. June at 04:38:18
Urban Gardini Coming along nicely! A suggestion is to use antennas from Master.
13. June at 12:00:32
Jens Thanks Urban for the suggestion, but the parts of Master you can scratch, some needles and brass wire, the art has been able to convince even professionals, my Revell Bf 110G4 or the He 219 are all made. the problem is also less the dipoles of the antennas, the alignment and perfect psoditioning is a challenge for me, with this stag-geek every little bet is recognizable, so it will really be a game of patience :)
13. June at 12:05:43
Urban Gardini Yes, no matter how you do with the antennas you still have the problem with just how delicate they're and they'll break if you look at 'em sideways...
13. June at 12:14:00
Clifford Keesler Beautiful Jens.
14. June at 01:44:32
Alec K Looking forward to the antlers :)
14. June at 11:46:28
Stephan Ryll Coming along nicely Jens
14. June at 14:52:15
James C That's a beauty Jens.
16. June at 18:00:25
Jens Thank you colleagues for the nice words and thus new motivation of the 110 to give a form :) It is done, or better, I will not put my finger on the model, not on this Bf 110 G4 ;)
19. June at 11:42:42
Nathan Dempsey That's a wonderful build there Jens.
19. June at 12:13:22
Alec K Well done Jens
19. June at 12:26:14
Tim Heimer Great looking ! Well done!
19. June at 13:22:58
Urban Gardini It's a build that you can be proud of!
19. June at 14:40:12
Bart Goesaert Jens the mottlemaster strikes again... very nice work...
19. June at 15:41:51
Stephan Ryll Looking superb Jens
19. June at 16:33:37
Gerald Willing Großartig wie immer Jens ;)
19. June at 23:22:16
Jens Thanks for the nice words :) I am pleased if the model can convince in the form so :)
20. June at 11:38:23
Mathieu Duvivier That Spaghetti on the fuselage Blow me away ! very convincing.
20. June at 11:52:25
Jens Thanks for the compliment Mathieu Duvivier, I like to help you again ;) because the Spagettimuster is nothing special, there are only lines painted with dark color on a RLM 76, really only lines, without template, without template only with very little Space for each one ;)
20. June at 13:09:09
Mathieu Duvivier Hmmm?? Did we share before ?I dont get it. Doing a template for such an interlaced scheme would be impossible.
20. June at 13:15:49
Jens There is a possibility, but this is extremely expensive and you have to have the Pattafix very well under control, because it would have to be heated for such fine threads and kept at temperature, in rough I have shown that in a Ju 88 C6 once Ju 88 C-6 Dragon / Revell | Album by Starterset
For me it is easier and faster Free hand made
20. June at 13:50:16
Martien Lourens Wieder hervorragende Arbeit. Sehr schöne Airbrush-Arbeit. Klasse
22. June at 10:10:41
Spanjaard It is "really only lines".... "it is just hammering a piece of marble" as Michelangelo could have said about his Moses.....
27. June at 18:17:02
Michael Hickey Nice work once again Jens.
28. June at 04:54:22
Neuling Top notch coloring and shading!
28. June at 09:03:52
Rene Scheiblich I can only second Spanjaard on this one. Don't sell yourself and your superb craftsmanship short Jens!
Battling down that beast of a kit and finishing it with this great paintjob... Chapeau!
I've got the same kit stashed, now I'm "scared" of it ;)
28. June at 11:15:59
Jens Thank you Thank you Thank you, your compliments motivate me to try something new again :)
28. June at 11:39:46
Jens @ Rene , keine Angst , ein Blick in den Karton , besonders auf die Tragflächen schafft schnell Klarheit , sollte es die Erstauflage mit den wirklichen Problemen sein, dann hilft Eduard mit Neuteilen , oder man kauft eine Weekendversion dazu, und kann so die groben Teile tauschen. Besonders die rechte ober Tragflächenschale sollte begutachtet werden, ist das ein sauberer Guß dann okay, gibt es da aber Innen einen dicken Auftrag über die ganze Fläche , Bilder machen und eben zeigen , in 2 Wochen hast Du Ersatz und eine Entschuldigung ;)
28. June at 11:45:41
Rene Scheiblich Hm da habe ich wohl auch eine alte erwischt! Die Innenseite sieht aus, als hätten sie die Form vom Azubi mit einem stumpfen Stechbeitel herstellen lassen... :(
Die Aussenseite sieht soweit ok aus...
29. June at 08:54:14
Jens Dann hast Du die Erstauflage :( , mach einfach Bilder und schick die an Eduard , in ca. 14 Tagen hast Du kostenfreien Ersatz Aber auch aus der Erstauflage lässt sich ja eine G4 bauen ;)
29. June at 10:07:31
Rene Scheiblich Das werde ich mal versuchen, danke!
Gibt es echt so extreme Probleme mit den Teilen aus der Erstauflage? Deine 110 sieht am Ende ja sehr schick aus :)
30. June at 11:37:57
Jens Wenn ich die Durchschnittsbauzeit bei 10 Tagen für ein 2 Mot mit etwas Extra anvisiere, dann hat die 110 ganze 5 Wochen beansprucht, denke das sagt sehr viel über den Bedarf an Nacharbeiten , es ist ein echter Brocken, der Rumpf baut sich fast von selbst, auch die Montage der Flächen zum Rumpf ist sehr gut durchdacht , aber die Passung der Motorgondeln , Kühler und Flächen selbst spotten jeder Beschreibung, die Lackierung selbst war dann an einem Tag erledigt , aber bis dahin der Weg war echte Arbeit

If I look at the average construction time of 10 days for a 2 Mot with a little extra, then the 110 has taken a whole 5 weeks, think that says a lot about the need for rework, it's a real chunk, the hull is built almost by itself, also the assembly of the surfaces to the fuselage is very well thought out, but the fit of the motor gondolas, radiator and surfaces mock themselves every description, the painting itself was done then in a day, but until then the way was real work
30. June at 11:44:37
Clifford Keesler I did tell you that is a beautiful BF-110, did I Jens.
30. June at 21:20:56
Jens Clifford Keesler the Bf 110 G4 has its charm, for me it's the colors, as on any model :), but this year I'm really unlucky, the first chunk was the Do 17 Z2 by ICM, that's really annoying and a lot of time, then the A6A Intruder from Kinetic, the pure horror, whether the times will be finished is questionable, then the He 111 H6 from ICM, also very time consuming and then even a story like the Bf 110, it brings me out the concept ;) my speed suffers extremely :D
but I also like to say, once the pictures are in the album and the model has found its place in the vitrine, then all sorrow is forgotten :) otherwise I would not try again a He 111 of ICM :D
30. June at 21:34:13
Slavo Hazucha Looking really great - great respect for the fine-line job on the fuselage. I also like the finish of the flame-suppressors on the exhausts, it looks very realistic. Great result, well worth the extra mile of effort IMHO :)
1. July at 05:54:54
Jens Thanks Slavo, the exhausts I have made on the model only with Alclad II colors ALC 416, ALC 113 and ALC 104, the red tone of the hot metal sepia then provided the rust tone, then a little matte black for the exhaust, everything to feel and painted on each other and mixed, wet painting is impossible with Alclad Ii, that already dries in the cup :)
