Andy Ball Thanks a Guy, it's been sitting on the bench in near-complete state for a while. I can recommend it, (apart from oversized wing tanks).

Guy Rump Great result Andy, were the resin and metal parts a good fit/easily attach to the model/ok to paint?
2. January at 21:20:02
Andy Ball Well, Guy, this was my first foray into limited run kits. Quite a challenge at every turn!
I went for a gear-up look as the metal u/carriage was very average-poor detail and fitting.
The plastic needed a lot of flash etc. removing. The rear 'chute housing needed modifying for the Argentine model, and you need to scratch-build a ventral fuselage fin, (plus antennae and fuel tank fins). Resin seat and exhaust pipes were OK and once painted looked suitable for scale.
The overall shape and surface details are good, and painting wasn't too bad either, however I wouldn't buy another- there maybe better III's in 72nd out there, perhaps?
3. January at 09:41:59
Guy Rump Thanks Andy, it sounds as if you had a real challenge on your hands but, as can be seen from your results your perseverance paid off! :)
3. January at 15:40:37
Łukasz Gliński Very nice finish, looks like it was worth the effort :)
4. January at 12:01:29
Andy Ball @Łukasz: only just worth it!, 72nd deserves an Eduard-style 'III....IMHO
4. January at 13:40:23
Łukasz Gliński Hmm, do you mean the Modelsvit one? :)

Robert Espenschied great all the details... :)
unfortunately mostly hidden when closed :(
3. December 2019 at 21:27:21
Andy Ball @Robert: sadly yes, but I'd be uncomfortable with them omitted!!, (actually, you can see most of them by taking out the front and rear turrets, plus through the bomb-bay)
6. December 2019 at 17:40:42
Chaz Gordon Outstanding detail in 1/72nd, glad I'm not the only painter of detail that will be forever hidden. But hey, that's what photo albums are for.

Andy Ball RLM02 arrived...so we had a day on this and Bf109 too
24. October 2019 at 17:02:14
Andy Ball Well. All I can say is the cockpit area is over-engineered and very fiddly, you have to abandon Airfix's recommendations on the sequences of construction, use CA, and many swear words. It isn't helped by a molding issue which has led to warping around the wing roots and onto the front fuselage. It has been improved with further additions of cross-members and the upper wing. Nonetheless this is a challenging build.
25. October 2019 at 22:40:01
Łukasz Gliński Many thanks for your hints I thought the instrument panel you used was made by Yahu, not Pavla (local patriotism, you know ;) )
26. October 2019 at 07:53:00
Andy Ball @Łukasz: thanks for the correction!! Yahu most definitely- and a cheap and effective way of adding some detail!!

Andy Ball We now have a delivery of RLM02...so may the construction move along apace!....
24. October 2019 at 17:05:44
Andy Ball On the other hand.... the cockpit of this Bf109 is surgically precise! Everything fits beautifully. Tamiya's reputation is deserved
25. October 2019 at 23:08:55
Alec K Great project and progress, taking a seat. I read the book, very moving. Not 100%, but I recall Bf 109 wheel wells and gear were RLM02, wheel discs RLM66.

Andy Ball I'm going all out: trying the Rob Taurus canopy to allow it to slide back (seen in photo). As this is a starter kit, I'm adding stencils too. Finally, Airwaves will complete the canopy's rear-view mirror and the harness straps.
So far build is OK, a little mis-alignment in the fuselage halves (aft of cockpit area), and during the wing-to-fuselage dry-fitting I needed some sanding to get them married together. Great step up in quality and detail from the old Airfix (see re-purposed project) offering of the previous tooling.
14. October 2019 at 16:20:33
Andy Ball I will post better lit photos...despite having a Canon 5D Mk4, I need a better lighting rig!, anyways, we'll have this dispatched for front-line duties soon! Now moving into decals and stencils with Xtradecals and TechMod respectively.
16. October 2019 at 13:11:08
Andy Ball nearly at the end, really pleased with the kit. Glad I went for the vac-canopy too.

Andy Ball Thank-you Igor!
I think I was inclined to use an RLM for my Italian sand, once washes etc. are put over it, the shades tend to change, but I guess you start with the as-near-correct colour first. If you come to build, drop me a note and I'll remember the +/- points of the build along the way for you.

Igor Kondrashenkov Thanks Andy ..

Nikolaos Kouzinis I have a same one Andy. It 's a good kit. I had problem with the fitting of cockpit glass. I putted 2 torpedoes but I know that it carried only one. I painted it with brush to have the control of camo shemes as you say too.
17. September 2019 at 22:05:20
Andy Ball @Nikolaos: seen yours, lovely!! I had the same issues with the main canopy, (as hinted at here in the photos). References suggest that the undersides were aluminium and a "hellblau-like-colour". When in Rhodes, I am lead to believe it had come back from S.M.'s servicing and had a repaint, hence I spared it too much weathering.
17. September 2019 at 22:24:03
Nikolaos Kouzinis Yes you have right for the colour. I choose the light ghost grey(gloss) because the Airfix guide has that colour and it was very easy to paint it with the brush, only one time I must change the tyres colour with rubber acrylic because they are very gloss. And of course I must make wash and smoke . I didn't dare it because I destroyed a SU-15 washing it and made a destroyed Ukranian SU-15 diorama.

Nathan Dempsey Interesting subject. Always love seeing a Hampden built. I wish someone would reissue this aircraft in 1:48 scale.
15. July 2019 at 22:25:03
Andy Ball Thanks fellas! I've always had a soft spot for the HPH, having built Airfix's one many years ago. This is homage to my local RAF Syerston which saw the Goose Squadron operate from there.
15. July 2019 at 23:04:22
Gordon Sørensen Great looking Hampden, Andy! I really like the effect you got on the black underside.
8. August 2019 at 19:02:19
Andy Ball Actually Gordon, I'm not sure I've overdone it!, I may give it a light coat of black just to take out the blueish wash!, but I appreciate your remarks thank-you

Andy Ball OK, another one I built when I was a young student of Pharmacy and model-making in 1983, I think. Over the years the model has been damaged, so I'll breathe a bit of new life into the old plastic. Heck, I know it's not accurate either, but it's still an impressive kit - and subject!
21. March 2019 at 18:57:58
Andy Ball the decals weren't the best, and I made a school-boy error of spraying 'flat base' instead of 'flat varnish', so pretty well eliminated any 'up-grades' I'd invested in......well, there's always the ICM 72nd'er I guess....

17. July 2019 at 17:06:48
Andy Ball I built this,(Hasegawa), one in the mid-1990's and have only recently added Air Master metal barrels for the 0.303's, as it'd been stored and damaged. It was brush painted and weathered, (it shows!), but I like its overall "feel"...., I'm still "practicing as a modeller", as indeed we all are- projects like this show where I've come from! Finally, many thanks for your comments!
17. July 2019 at 20:05:16
David Januska Very nice "bird". I also have a Hasegawa kit "nose art". But I've replaced it with an Airfix one in my stash. But your work looks awesome. Congratulations .
17. July 2019 at 20:34:18
Andy Ball Yes David, I think Airfix raised the bar with their recent B-17, but Hasegawa raised it from the old Airfix and Revell ones way back when!!
