coporado Are the lights on the ceiling scratch build?
31. December 2018 at 14:41:43
gorbygould @Coporado: Yes they are, but the don't work. I did consider fitting led bulbs in them but I eventually decided against it.

Spanjaard i honestly do not not know you you dared to do something like this gorbygould... how you dare to completely nail a fantastic diorama again? :) man, this is truly impressive! i do not know if some pieces should be together or not , neither do i care. i love it as it is. funny that "owners guide to " in picture 1. to the stuka maybe? seriously great job on that roof and wooden beams. and of course all the rest of the details. great work on the figures. well the guy next to the 8.8 seems a bit stiff to be relax against the wall... sorry i had to do some rivet counting :D :D
04. January at 01:14:47
coporado May you share which material you did use for the lights? Had lots of test runs for 1/35 with aluminium foil (and lots of take away food) but unfortunately not satisfying (except the food) :)
04. January at 04:58:55
gorbygould Thanks very much Spanjaard, what a gent you are. The Haynes manual in pic 1 is actually for the Bf 109, but unfortunately my knackered old printer can't print fine enough for the picture to be made out clearly. I think the 'stiff' chap must have frozen on watch duty overnight and the others haven't noticed yet - he was never one for talking anyway. That's my story anyway. ;)

@Coporado: I'm not sure if you mean the light bulb or the light shade. The shade was made from 0.5mm plasticard made into a cone with the help of this site:
craig-russell.co.uk/demos/cone_calculator/

The round bit on the top of the cone are 1/48 British helmets left over from my last dio. The whole lot was then spayed with Alclad Steel.
The bulb is just a piece of clear sprue filed to shape and polished. On closer inspection it doesn't look like a bulb of course, but it's fine for what I need. Hope that helps.

coporado Thanks for sharing that interesting method, will give that a try definitely

04. January at 12:56:24
gorbygould Thanks Soren & Nathan - the camo is as 'what-if' as the aircraft. I enjoyed playing around with ideas for it.

Spanjaard actually the shade of green that they were planning to use in 46 was a bit darker than that and the one you use and the wings of the rockets are.... of course i am kidding!!!. excellent job gorbygould. i think i missed this beauty during my holidays. i really like you approach for rivet counters :)
14. March 2018 at 16:37:59
gorbygould That made me laugh.
Thanks Spanjaard. You have probably gathered that I'm not a big fan of rivet-counters – even when discussing aircraft that did exist.
Hope you have a good holiday.
14. March 2018 at 17:58:48
Spanjaard like always, too sort my friend :) but good

Martin Oostrom I also think the green could be a shade paler. But hey, I didn't build the thing ;)
She does look very nice though. Well done Gorby!
09. June 2018 at 11:32:35
Spanjaard nice to see you back gorbygould... :) it looks pretty good to me, to be honest (no idea about the colors, i like it as it is). strange about the white gaze due to the future... no idea why it happened. maybe some contaminant like grease from the moulds still in the parts?
09. June 2018 at 15:13:52
gorbygould Thanks Martin. :)
Thanks Spanjaard. I still pop back from time to time to see if you are behaving yourselves (glad to see your not ;) ).
On Britmodeller a couple of others have said that they have had problems with Zvezda clear parts. The glazing under the canopy is very bendy, so I'm wondering if they use a slightly different plastic to other manufacturers.
09. June 2018 at 17:00:27
Roland Sachsenhofer Well done! I t looks great
09. June 2018 at 17:14:09

gorbygould Thanks Spanjaard – I'm surprised this one has popped up again.
I've only just noticed that one of the ailerons had dropped before I took the photos – probably my heavy handing.

This one got overlooked on Britmodeller as well, but I prefer the end result of this to the my Ta 183. I suppose it's a less sexy design than the 183.
