Macchi 205 - Hasegawa 1/48


 This is the Hasegawa kit with the excellent SBS cockpit, wheel bays from Eduard (not so fun to build for some reason), Quickboost resin exhausts (this manufacturer sales corrected and uncorrected pipes, so watch out for the correct reference) and some PE bits. I made some non-exhaustive mods, notably scribing correct access panels around the engine cowling & fuselage. I did not bother fixing the shapes of the ammo panels though. Marking comes from a Stormo decal sheet completed with Silhouette masking.  Paint is a mix of Gunze & MRP references: H310, MRP-302 & MRP-303.

Messerschmitt Bf-109 E3 Walkaround

Walkaround of the Messerschmitt Bf-109 E3 (J-355; Werk NummerlFactory Number 2422) exhibited at the Swiss Air Force Museum at Dubendorf Air Base near Zurich, Switzerland. My wife and I visited this museum and although I was more enthusiastic than her I think she appreciated it :) bf-109 antenna isolator Antenna isolator Antenna isolator 20MM FF-K Oe 37 (Flugzeugfliigel-Kanone Oerlikon 1937) Engine radiator flap Exhausts Right landing gear Left landing gear Wheel bay cover Pitot tube   Radiator flap indicator

D-3801 Morane Saulnier MS 406 Walkaround

After the Bf-109 , here is a short walkaround of the Adolph Saurer AG license-built D-3801 Morane Saulnier MS-406 also exposed at the Swiss Airforce museum at Dubendorf (Switzerland). One advice, if you go in Switzerland say D-3801, not M.S. 406 or you will have to handle a diplomatic issue  - n'est ce pas Gérard :) Below are a few pictures of the cockpit taken through the windows ... And finally, some pictures of the engine, a Hispano Suiza HS-51 12Y
