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 at 17:37:59
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.

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!

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 at 17:13:52
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 at 19:00:27
Roland Sachsenhofer Well done! I t looks great
09. June at 19:14:09
Spanjaard who knows gorbygould. never used it myself, so i can not tell
09. June at 20:39:03
gorbygould Thanks Roland. I might get to your level one day (but I doubt it). ;)
10. June at 10:03:24
Roberto Rocat Very well done, the real thing was a beauty, IMO, and you did it justice :)
10. June at 10:53:42
gorbygould Thanks very much Roberto. I agree, the original aircraft was beautiful.

Alistair Graham Nice model. I built a 1/32 scale in the mid 70s but cant recall what brand it would have been.

Spanjaard that is quite a nice job. love what you have done with the cockpit.
28. April at 16:35:43
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.
28. April at 18:49:15
Spanjaard i must have missed it before :)

gorbygould Thanks Spanjaard – what excellent taste you have. ;)
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.

Spanjaard i know what you think.... i could do one model during each school holidays (maybe two in christmas), and i have only done two (still working in the second) in more than year and a half :D
27. November 2017 at 20:51:35
gorbygould Spanjaard: When I were a lad, if I had a new model it HAD to be built NOW! I didn't wait for holidays, any day could be modelling day. For me it was less about modelling and more about holding my very own Me 262, or B-29 or Lanc etc.
During the school holidays, three of us took our models to a friends garage and re-enacted WWII (in 1/72). I had the RAF, Luftwaffe & U.S. air force; another had the AFV's of the main combatants and the third had all the army figures. Just thinking about it makes me smile. :)
28. November 2017 at 17:20:29
Spanjaard sliding down memory line now... :) bringing some memories about battles with my brother or with friends... but we never used models for that. but used cheaper versions that you could buy in some shops (short of crude 1/72 figures etc)
Anyway, when i was a child i could not do models out of holiday seasons (every holiday season was model time). Later on, i did them more often than i was supposed, even when i was supposed to be studying :P no idea how my parents did not notice the extra models appearing sometimes in my room :D
28. November 2017 at 18:49:20
Derek Reeve WW-2 isn't/hasn't been my thing since I was a kid but from a modellers view I have nothing but praise for this, awesome.
25. February at 12:33:52
Timothy Heimer That my friend has got the WOW factor in it! Nice build!
25. February at 14:33:43
gorbygould Thank you very much Derek & Timothy, I'm surprised that this one has cropped up again. Always nice to know that your efforts are appreciated, and this kit was an real effort. ;)
25. February at 16:22:38
Stephan Ryll very nice build and colouring
