I'm up for a THIRD one!!

Postby farrabass » Mon Jan 13, 2014 5:24 pm

Here I go with entry number THREE!! What I lack with quality I intend to make up with, with quantity!!!!!!
Same as before an opening post containing photos of the box and contents.
ImageImage
These little kits have really whetted my appetite to do some more plastic! I have just bought myself a Junkers 88a-4 (Airfix) to do some time in the future and have also conscripted myself into the Airfix club?
I can see the Sovereign taking a little longer than it would have done? But then again I was going to subscribe to the Deagostini Spitfire when it was released and then cancelled a few months ago, so I put aside the £30 a month that I would have been spending on that subscription waiting for something to come along. So, maybe now is the time to spend a little of my model kit savings and buy a few cheap plastic kits??
ImageImage
As with the previous two kits some really good internal details come as standard.
That's it for today! back to the bench and do a bit more painting and sticking........................... :superlglue:

Great start steve :)
these starter kits are great value for money when you get paints and a brush. Not sure what the paint is like :think: i have a few unopened pots from the smaller kits. wonder if i have a olive drab...will have to check :think:
anyway thanks for starting another xmas build, look forward to seeing the third offering :)

Thanks Casper, Paul.
I have done a bit more, again there is quite a lot of internal detail to this kit and again flash is non existent!
I have got so carried away doing these little kits that I tried to revive some youthful memories and bought one of my all time favourite aircraft! a Ju 88!! I probably tried making this kit two or three times when I was just a nipper and thought I remembered it being a "nice" kit to do. In comparison to the little fighters I'm doing it's awful!! interior detail is minimal and the amount of flash has to be seen to be believed. The decal set is quite good though, so I'll just do little bits of this kit as and when.
ImageImage
Some nice interior detail and I've even had a go at making some masking tape harnesses! :clap:
ImageImage
The fuselage with this kit comes in two largish halves and other smaller parts that all interact with each other so, its a case of glue part of the fuselage together and make sure there is enough left "unstuck" to be able to mate it with another part once the first lot has dried? :laughing-rolling:
ImageImage
The very front still needs to be permanently glued but I've left it for the moment until the propeller assembly is ready to test fit and then it will be glued and clamped.
That's it for today, thanks for looking in, Steve.. :superlglue:

Any thoughts on any other mods for this? :)

The front looks a bit empty, is there an engine supplied? Or is it my eyes :laughing-rolling:

And a little bit more has been added, still not perfected the RC yet! so any "buzzing" will have to be put on hold for a while ;)
ImageImage
I have posted the second photo out of build order? For some reason "unknown to me" the pictures came out in sepia :laughing-rolling:
ImageImage
Now begins the painting.
ImageImage
The fuel tank carrier has been added and everything has been primed. The base grey has been sprayed on as well.
Time now to prepare for the camouflage, a mixture of masking tape and blue-tack comes in useful now!!
Cheers, Steve..

Thanks everyone for the interest!
I did a tiny bit more earlier while I was waiting for some varnish to dry on the Sots!!(and the missus says I cant multitask) :laughing-rolling:
I'll go to bed in a few minutes now dreaming of aviation fuel and a good wind? :shifty: The good wind wont be any problem (well not for me) :laughing-rolling:
ImageImage
Nearly there now!
ImageImage
The RC mod didn't turn out so good! so I've just gone with a rubber band and a Bee in a tin :whistle:
One more update should see this wee beasty finished.

Hi Steve,

I'm just wondering what you are going to use the aviation fuel for ..... :think:

Is it to help with the good wind? :?:

I think Morrigan's HWMBO will be horrified at "The RC mod didn't turn out so good! so I've just gone with a rubber band and a Bee in a tin" !!!! :laughing-rolling:

In seriousness, you've done a really great job again :D :D

Hi Paul! The mention of aviation fuel and wind is just me trying to convey how involved I had become in this plastic modelling lark :laughing-rolling: I had become that obsessed with building the little blighters that I needed to get back to adding a few more sticks to my Sovereign build! hence the wind reference :laughing-rolling: It all makes sense to me but :?
Here's a tiny bit more of the 190...
ImageImage
A little engine smut and a few signs of grease and oil have been added, if I could ask an open question? "The cockpit canopy is open? so how taught will the antennae wire be in this position?"
ImageImage
All that leaves me with now is the antennae, the tips of the props' and to make a base.
Cheers, Steve..

The antena was on a pulley type system through the Perspex I believe, so it would have remained under tension.

I am pretty sure anyway....... :think:

Fantastic model again, you've done a brill job!! :clap:
