This one has been waiting in ideas for around 9 months so I've finally taken the plunge and started.

Canopies masked and on the fuselage. Vallejo Model Air USN blue and Intermediate blue applied to the top of the aircraft. Insignia white will ne next.

Gloss varnish applied before putting transfers on. Once applied, fiddly bits to be added and then matt varnish to finish. :)
29. November, 15:52
Guy Rump
I finally declare this aircraft complete. :)

Although the instructions state that VB-3 Sqn was on USS Yorktown in April 1945, this is not correct. The Sqn depicted (VB-3) transferred to USS Lexington on 6 Mar 1945 for Hawaii. Therefore, I have decided that this model depicts White 110 of VB-3 Sqn in Feb 1945 when the Sqn was focusing its efforts on providing air support during the run up to the Battle for Iwo Jima.
VB-3 is considered by many to be the premier Navy attack squadron of WWII. It was established in 1934 and chose a leaping or diving panther as its emblem. The Black Panthers were involved in the sinking of Japanese warships at Midway and Guadalcanal. Flying their Helldivers VB-3 took part in attacks on the Japanese in the Philippines, Formosa and the home islands.

Guy, that is a terrific build! Glad you got there and have made a great subject of their kit. I love the backstory. You've also been able to use their SAAF colours too, saving yourself the need to tone them down!

Complete with some light weathering.

This denotes a Beaufighter of 144 Sqn PL O that took part in the raid on Forde Fjord on 9 Feb 1945 known as Black Friday.

This raid was conducted with 31 Beaufighters from 404, 405, 489 & 144 Sqns, all from RAF Dalachy (Dalachy Wing). The 404 & 405 Sqn aircraft were equipped with rockets (for anti-shipping)whilst the other Beaufighters had their cannon and machine guns for their anti-flak role. 65 Sqn Mustangs provided fighter cover.

At Forde Fjord at around 1610 hours, as the Beaufighters attacked shipping and flak guns, 12 FW 190 s attacked. This engagement, with Beaufighters, Mustangs & FW 190s led to dog fights and aircraft attacking ships with around 50 aircraft taking part, the largest aerial battle over Norway during WW2.

The fighting lasted until 1625 hours. The German ships had shot down 7 Beaufighters and the FW 190s had shot down another 2 Beaufighters and a Mustang.

The Allies damaged several German ships and shot down either 4 or 5 FW 190s.

The losses suffered by the Dalachy Wing on 9 Feb were the highest of any of the Wings of Coastal Command sustained in a single operation during WW2.

Nice. Could've been more dirty, but still it does look good

Messerschmitt BF-109 E-3 completed. No weathering on this one, I decided to leave it as new...

Maj Erich Mix III/JG2 (May 1940 France) 1898-1971

This model denotes the BF 109 E-3 that Major Erich Mix was shot down in on 21 May 1940.

Mix initially flew during WWI and was credited with 3 kills and awarded the Iron Cross 2nd and 1st Class.
Mix was a flying ace in WW2. He became a fighter pilot again in 1937 and from March 1940 commanded III/JG 2 until September 1940. During WW2 he claimed 8 (potentially 13) aerial victories. He attained the rank of Oberst (full Colonel) and was awarded the German Cross of Gold.

Prior to WW2, a Nazi Party member, he was mayor of Wiesbaden from 1937-45. He was mayor of Wiesbaden again from 1954-60 representing the Free Democatic Party.

Finally complete.
Jagdgeschwader 301 (JG 301) was a Luftwaffe fighter-wing of World War II. The order to form JG 301 was issued on 26 September 1943 and formed on 1 October 1943 in Neubiberg with Stab and three Gruppen (groups) as a "Wilde Sau" (wild boar) single-seat night fighter unit.
By April 1945, JG 301 was based around Hagenow, Neustadt and Ludwigslust.

Andy Ball
super conclusion to a super build!!, how was the 'fix?....did it go together well?
8. June, 17:13
Guy Rump
Many thanks Andy :) The fuselage was a difficult fit at the front and then when the nose (and propeller) were added, this appeared to force the front of the fuselage apart. Please note that if you wish to have the pilot in your build, ensure you put him in his seat before you glue the fuselage together as he will not fit in through the open cockpit. All in all a nice model to build and an improvement on the old Airfix tool. :)

9. May, 12:17

Welcome wilky & Roland :) It's a strange kit with no detail in the cockpit (as you can see) but then other parts can be moved, maybe it was to attract younger modelers? Once complete, I will put it next to the Airfix model for comparisons. :)

23. May, 13:05

Completed.
I used Techmod decals which are IMO very thin and tear very easily.

This aircraft is based on a A6M2-Model 21 that was based at Konoike in Japan as a part of the 721st Naval Air Group. The 721st (towards the end of WW2) was mainly known for it specializing in Kamikaze missions.

I assume the decals of the kit were broken (50 years) and therefore aftermarket?

Guy Rump
A long time coming but I have now completed this model. The canopy was a challenge to say the least to attach.

Stab/KG 53 Lille Air Base, France, Summer 1940. KG 53 was named the Kondor Legion. KG 53 took part in the invasion of France & the Low Countries in 1940 before being moved to Poland in June 1940. On 1 July it was moved again; taking an active part in the Battle of Britain including The Hardest Day on 18 August and the raid on 15 September known as Battle of Britain Day.
