Just FYI: the last time this was brought up, the mods had to lock it for being OT. Let me suggest you bring it up here:

http://acompletewasteofspace.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=4

That should take you to the unofficial PL.

BTW, I've built 1/48 planes for many years, /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I used to do a lot of building, airbrush, hacked neeldes for gun barrels, weathering, scratch cockpits, home blown cockpit glass, lada lada. Never was paid, unlike some lucky fella /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif , would start doing it again had I the space (ventalation), money, and a new set of tools.

It was very enjoyable and I loved it.

It's my main hobby!I build in all scales 1/72, 1/48, 1/32, but I prefer 1/48 since a WW2 bird is too small in 1/72 and jets are too big in 1/32.
Right now I have 30 some projects but the most exiting one is a Ta 152C modified from a Italeri 152H and a Tamiya Dora. The Ta 152C is only avaliable in resin but I though I could convert the Ta 152H plastic kit with a few cuts and so far it looks really good! I don't know why but none of my models have been left in their original state, as far as I'm concerned flaps and slats should be deployed!/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif My biggest projects right now is making the Academy Su-27 and the old Esci Viggen resemble the originals alot more than they do in their original form, it has called for some serious cuts here and there, but it is fun!

A question, since the Ta 152C had the DB engine instead of the Jumo, are there any differing details in the cooling intake? I have only found 3 pics of the Ta 152C so far and it is hard find any details, so if anybody knows some more please help me!

Thanks!/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

A lot of the 3 view drawings or books tell you the differances between varients. If you can read it.

I have done them for a long time. I a; well wanted to fly what i built, but not many of those down at the airport ready for a hop lol. Building got me into simming. A couple of mine from days way gone by like a couple of years. I am much better now.. I have moved up to 32nd and i will have a couple more pics here soon of something recent.

When I started with Il2 simming I got curious about the models. Some people posted pics on their progress and that actually made me buy a few small kits. 1/72.

I'm not very good at it, but its fun and takes my mind of off things. So much better then knitting or sewing /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Tho I was kinda upset when my back then boyfriend grabs my just finished Bf109 G-10, pretends to fly the cute lil plane and brutely breaks of one of its landing gear. He looked at me and grinned, but I was fuming. So upset, but he didn't understand. bah.

anyway, still have a Spitfire Mk. V and a P-51b to do.

WOW cool plane man -and that was a few years ago too - you must be right good now

i started on model kits when i was young (sigh) and put them down for a few years
in fact i think it was il2 that rekindled my desire to paint little planes ( that and my set of genuine WW22 aircraft recognition magazines that i rediscovered in my attic)
most of my ones are the 1/72 - i bought one 1/48 ( i think) it was/is a grumman avenger - great model - wings fold ( and undercarraige & turret) but i'm reluctant to buy such things (larger scale) cos i know i'll want to make a good job of painting them & therefore will never actually get round to it- so i stick with 1/72 at minute /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

hi Robban75

i currently have your sig photo "Ta 152C-O (V7)" CI+XM and "{FW 190C-O (V3/U1)GH+KT Spezial hohenjager II"(second from the top in the link Gibbage provided) sitting on the a shelf(dry fitted),until i find the time..

as for the cooling intake (exterior ) it seems to resemble the "round" D9 intake most(but twice about as long) as opposed to the D13 oblong mouth,and the interior fan (DB603L/EM)seems simular enough.

hope this helps

Used to build them, when I was younger.

I had about 20 fighters, mainly jets, then I turned on tanks and military vehicles. There was more to improvise.

As my aircrafts drowned in dust and lost more and more parts, I blew most of them up /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

... had a F5 that I prepared with 2 pieces of fireworks. Hell, wish old von Brown had seen this. The biggest piece I found was 5x5mm /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif - everything else went to the moon and back. I sometimes see the parts when the sun goes down /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Aircraft in this scale are pretty small, especially ww2 Fighters( about 10 cms for a Me-109, 40cms for a B-17 ), so they doesnâ´t took a lot of room to store when build. a few good manufacturers can be found at www.rollmodels.com (http://www.rollmodels.com) or www.hannants.co.uk (http://www.hannants.co.uk). Hasegawa, Tamiya, MPM and Revell had a very good range of them. HTH.

Get the DML/ Shangai Dragon Ho-229 in 1/48, you can still get it in major model retailers and also in e-bay. Its a fine kit, you only need to thim down the wings ends, thatâ´re over done. not a lot of interior detail, but the engine is present along some internal structure, HTH.

After it was refeuled i climbed in.With many manipulations the mechcanics started the turbines.I followed their actions with the greatest of interest.The first one started quite easily.the second caught fire.In no time the whole engine was on fire.Luckily as a fighter pilot i was used to getting quickly out of the cockpit.The fire was quickly put out.The second plane caused no trouble - Adolf Galland (first time in a ME262)

i was doing scale models too couple of years ago. i'm thinking of making one this summer again.

my first one was a 109 at the age of 10 i think. and a Phantom, and then a Stuka, and a B24, omg it was sooooooo nice somehow. lol getting sentimental it was so funny as children me and my neighbour built those models and tanks and stuff and we had little soldiers of the same size ad we spent hours "fighting". it was funny.
