Michael Hickey Finally getting this Gruppe close to the paint shop. :)
3. September at 01:10:29
Holger Kranich Looks impressive, all together! What happened to the left wing at the wingroot?
3. September at 06:37:12
Lode Schildermans 4 at the same time. Ambitious project. Already a nice start, Michael
3. September at 06:38:08
Michael Hickey Thanks Mates, Holly, it's just a little sanding dust nothing to worry about, and Lode I should have called them half a Staffel. I'm now thinking these will go on a diorama set around olive trees in Sicily.
3. September at 07:25:27
Holger Kranich Pheew, only sanding dust...
The idea with them all together in Sicily sounds awesome to me!
3. September at 07:55:12
Slavo Hazucha 109 shades of Bf 109 :o - really impressive... I´m having trouble keeping track of the parts for one model on the bench + already falter when something mildly identical has to be done 2x (like 2 engines for one plane... :D). This is several levels beyond... Looking great, keep up the good work
3. September at 10:27:35
Michael Hickey Thanks Slavo, and Holly I need to do more research for the country side.
3. September at 10:41:47
Lode Schildermans LOL Slavo, you should try a ship. You'll have the opportunity to repeat a part 20 till 60 times, if you want :) A few Bf109 at the same time is economic in paint and glue -)
3. September at 11:40:17
Jens Hello Michael :) The Luftwaffe lands in Pearce :) I have never done, 6 models, even if it is as good as the 109 from Eduard, to build the same, but then makes sure fun in the colors, a nice project, have fun
3. September at 14:33:26
Michael Hickey Welcome Jens, yes you are right, it is fun doing so many enjoyable kits at one time. Today I'll start the clean up of the first aircraft and put the scratchbuilt wingtip lights in place, then painting on plane No. 1 will start. :D
3. September at 23:59:38
Michael Hickey This ones not to far from the finish line but I'll do some more decaling on the other 5 in the Sqn.

Michael Hickey Finally got this one finished in the last couple of days or so, now it's time to move onto those six Bf 109G-6/R6 JG 53 aircraft. :)
6. October at 04:34:15
Jim J What a great job! That's a really snappy scheme - the sawtooth camo on the wings, gray combined with the white trim and red markings. Excellent execution. Nice weathering as well.
6. October at 05:31:43
Erik Leijdens Beautiful 109 Michael. I like your paintjob
6. October at 05:34:01
Jens a real beauty , the spots are great, I like it without restrictions
6. October at 05:51:57
Stephan Ryll Great 109 Michael
6. October at 07:09:49
Lode Schildermans Great to see the final result, Michael. It's a beauty
6. October at 08:32:16
6. October at 08:48:56
Michael Hickey Thank You all for your encouraging words of approval. it lets me know that I'm doing something right with my 109's. :)

Michael Hickey I'll let this bird sit for a week now that she has her gloss clear coat on, then I'll decal her. :)
19. September at 05:18:07
Erik Leijdens Great camouflage Michael :)
19. September at 06:07:24
Holger Kranich I always liked those RAF Hellcats and Corsairs. Is your Zink Chromate from Gunze?
19. September at 07:11:14
Michael Hickey Thanks Erik & Holly, and yes Holly I used Gunze paint for the interior. I'm having second thoughts about this scheme I don't think the colours are right, I'm going to buy Hataka's FAA paint set so the colours can be done more accurately.
19. September at 11:39:35
Holger Kranich Well i can recommend Hataka´s paints. My modern Luftwaffe paints are spot on. No dilluting required, maybe a retarder as they tend to clog a bit at high pressures.
19. September at 12:13:08
Michael Hickey Thanks for the tip mate, I've got their Modern Luftwaffe paint sets too. :)

Jos Jansen Oh interesting Michael...I'll grab a seat for this KIWI project!
12. September at 08:37:32
Hans Robben Grabbing a seat
12. September at 08:39:01
Michael Hickey Wow, welcome everybody find a spot where you can. Soeren, the only things I've noticed is the tip of the vertical tail is the normal angled style and various antennas. Apart from that I think everything else would be internal.
12. September at 10:41:18
Slavo Hazucha Recognizing those lovely LG wells ;) Looking forward to the next steps & the camo finish!
12. September at 12:09:32
Stephan Ryll Very nice progress Michael
12. September at 15:08:53
James C Awesome Michael will be watching this one as I intend to do a similar RNZAF A-4K myself in the not too distant future.

I still miss seeing (and hearing) these aircraft screeching overhead, as they were regular visitors to the Whenuapai AFB which is literally over the creek from me. The sound they made was unmistakable, like the sky itself being ripped open!

There's still a lot of anger over here about their disbandenment, mostly due to the way the government at the time scrapped them. All up it was a very shameful exercise.

Holger Kranich I would have bet that the wells are aftermarket - They look superb as the rest of that neat lil plane! Its time for me to build a Scooter in the near future! ;)
11. September at 07:55:45
Michael Hickey Thanks again Holly, and you should really build a Scooter as there are so many options out there.

2. September at 16:53:54
Maciej Bellos I like the middle one! I had these markings in a Heller kit, I probable still have them, as I built the swiss one, it was an easier camo to do back then and I could get the mixtures right for the aggressor.
2. September at 19:13:27
Augie Yeah they are quite well known markings. Mikes doing 32, I'm doing 35 and 53 :)
2. September at 20:28:56
Augie Actually, if we all took different modex's we could probably do the entire of the 527th :D
2. September at 20:29:28
Michael Hickey Your all welcome mates, I can't wait for the 1st of October. Not only does the GB start but my oldest daughter turns 17 nd we're going camping for a week. I plan on taking my tools and this kit with me to get some modeling done while we are away. :)

Michael Hickey Cancelling this project and it felt so good smashing it up it into pieces, what a relief and weight of my shoulders. Now time to build something that I feel like doing and not something I feel pressured to because I wanted to be apart of the GB. Now I have a box of pieces for the spares box and a heap of weapons as well. :D :D :D

Now this has gone it's somewhat tragic path, maybe a good time to talk about the lovely angry pig tail decoration decals? :D :D

Jens Hello Michael, a really successful Bf 109 the rolling track but would not survive a chassis of a 109 :D, but a nice scene from the Afrikafront
12. August at 14:24:10
Treehugger A really interesting diorama imo, simple yet effective. I would make sure that there were some tracks in the sand. I think it would look even better that way, with some tracks or footprints in the sand.
12. August at 14:47:12
Stephan Ryll Very nice final result and dio Michael I like it
12. August at 14:59:33
Holger Kranich Mikey, amazing 109! I love the colores!
13. August at 05:10:03
Slavo Hazucha Tracks in the sand can be a very short-time affair... Another 109 some 50 meters away started it's engine and here we stand... :)
13. August at 05:27:37
Michael Hickey Thank You all for your thoughts Guy's, yes Jens smaller rocks would have been ideal, but the 109 is not stuck to the base, she just sits on it for photographic purposes. This will be the base I use for all my desert WWII aircraft photos, down the track I'll make one with grass. :)

Michael Hickey I'll build this bird when I finish my 109, that way I should have the decals from Bombshell Decals in my hand. :D

James C Cool banana's, will be in with a grin on this one

Michael Hickey I first built this exact markings when I was a teenager and over the years from moving from house to house and city to the bush this kit got lost somewhere. The decals should turn up in a couple of weeks, so sit back and enjoy the show James. :)

Michael Hickey Change of plans, going to bight of way more than I can chew... Off to do some electrical work for this beast, but I don't won't to give away to much just yet. ;) :)

Slavo Hazucha The first one with power functions! Now I am curious
15. July at 05:14:00
Michael Hickey Yes, and after being to Jaycar this morning and Bunnings I can honestly say what I have in mind just might come to reality. :)

Michael Hickey ummm, Pig, Grief, Hustler, not to mention my SLT-56 truck & trailer and half a helo on the back and my patriot missile that's been taking forever. Plus about 10 Fw 190's that are just about ready for the paint shop, but I.m defiantly not veering of to the left or right on the Pig. :)

Thomas Bischoff Count me in - have this kit too
4. July at 19:35:36
Slavo Hazucha This will look great even without resin in the cockpit - unless you plan to make it torn open by a flak-shell, I´d say it´s homework done already :)
5. July at 07:52:10
Michael Hickey Your all welcome to grab a seat, some nuts and a beer or two. Thomas I will give you a little advice in getting the clear nose on because straight out of the box it doesn't fit. Firstly you need PAINCIENCE to get the back part of the canopy glued correctly in place, as it wants to sit slightly inside the fuselage. Glue one edge let that completely dry then carefully using CA glue, glue the other side to the fuselage. When you go to fit the clear end piece on you will realize it doesn't come close to fitting properly. First make sure you have the gun circle frame down the bottom and you will have to file away some of the bomb aiming device. Do this slowly and keep checking the fit but by filling that part down you will get a perfect fit, and remember slowly, slowly.

Michael Hickey Fuselage halves are glued together, need to carefully put in place the two lower windows and some more details in the cockpit. I've had a little bit of bad luck with parts, the top viewing glass I have is fine but I have some how lost the ring section that it sits on. So I've started to scratch build that, I cracked the upper window on the left hand side, but worst is that I've lost the small window at the bottom front section. Oh yeah, I accidently snapped off the main cockpit panel and stupidly vacuumed it up. Tomorrow I will go through the vacuum cleaners bag and hopefully retrieve it. :( Apart from that this is a most enjoyable kit to build so far. :)
5. July at 08:36:31
Michael Hickey Good news I found the small front lower window now time to glue it in place. :)
6. July at 11:12:55
Chris Parsons Liking it!
I built this kit a few years ago, everybody I knew said it was a terrible kit....it gave me no trouble, other than the landing gear. I didn't fit the resin engines or bomb bay though. Watching with interest

Stephan Ryll Very nice progress Michael

Kerry COX I bet that checkerboard pattern was not all that easy. !
An other masterpiece for the display case Michael. :)
Good job mate. :)
2. July at 08:30:49
Michael Hickey Thanks Kerry, and you are right as usual, and as for the display case I need to glue some more pieces of aluminum angle to give me more shelf space. :)
2. July at 09:21:39
Kerry COX I am on my third display case, (IKEA) and looking at a fourth. ! ;)
2. July at 09:57:14
Michael Hickey Awesome, I have three single tower cases myself like yours and two more in the garage that I picked up from Aldi for $50 each. I don't want to assemble those because I plan on moving again next March.
