    Franz von Werra's Bf109 E4

    To start off the 4th, here is an update with a little extra bonus. Today I am going to cast a new plug. The Master fits the model perfectly. Hopefully the casting will do the same. I hope to get the handful of castings I need. Might be able to make a couple more if someone wants...

    Latest Acquisitions Revisited!

    I took advantage of a Sprue Bros sale then ordered some needed detail for the mess of Messerschmitts I have.

    der Spatzfalke! The operational Ho-229

    I have several Z-M kits and this one just seemed to fit the bill on this. I could have done the Japanese Shin Den or I have 3 Do-335 kits 1 Z-M and 2 HK kits, but just decided that this one needed to be built. I have seen it built with all the wood panels showing and even done where it has the...

    der Spatzfalke! The operational Ho-229

    Continuing on with my German aircraft builds, here is the back story. Shortly after the start of WWII during the air battles for Britain, Das Fuhrer suffered a fatal heart attack while throwing an apoplexic fit over the poor results. With Hermann Goering now leading Germany and the Nazi party...

    Latest Acquisitions Revisited!

    That is one funky looking plane Warren! I personally like the SM-79 a lot and this one would fit right in with it.

    The digital recasters: the death of garage kits.

    One Facebook site I watch semi regularly is Model Builder's Asylum. It mainly caters to figures, but has a little of everything. At this point he has banned all 3D printed stuff. Items being created on the computer and computer images are still OK, but if it is anything printed out, it is now...

    The digital recasters: the death of garage kits.

    I guess the guys in the UK are just out of luck now are they not Jeff? Too bad there isn't a way to just put a big old copyright logo on it right in the middle of the face. That would have been funny.

    Anyone build a Zoukei-Mura kit?

    I have this kit as well as several other of the ZM kits Jeff. They all look great and the detail is a it over the top. I am thinking about building either the Horton or the Shinden for the Another World 2. I also have the HK Do335B which would work as well since none of these planes were ever...

    The digital recasters: the death of garage kits.

    Here is the thing, while those that do this can end up with a copy, it has little to no real value on the market. I have several genuine numbered figures that were not cheap. Painted up properly they are worth 2 or 3 times the original cost. As they are the "genuine articles" they appreciate...

    Franz von Werra's Bf109 E4

    John, I had a great finish, there were just had no good dimensions to go by. I basically redid the kit barrels which were wrong. Was going to make some more and thought to look and see what the MM aftermarket had. As I have several kits and they were about $7 each I stocked up for all the...

    Franz von Werra's Bf109 E4

    After my somewhat failed attempt at making a decent machine gun barrel, I ordered the Master Model set from Sprue Bros. The last pics pretty much show why. I was not all that happy with the ones I made, After looking at a video which showed a very clear close up of the wing gun I...

    Franz von Werra's Bf109 E4

    Thanks for looking and commenting Bob, Piet, and Warren! James, I am not sure what I might do with the engine plug. For sure you cannot build the model with the whole engine in place as the cover absolutely will not fit in place over it. As to the plug, I am debating about doing another mold...
