    24th scale airfix 109E -Joachim Muncheberg

    Post  bcauchi on Sat Jun 06, 2015 2:54 pm

    Have been working for a while on this huge but old baby. Lots to do but fun. Started with detailing the pit. All metal works and white plastic is scratchbuilt work. Going very slow due to a lack of modeling time so posts will be few and far between. Here goes.











    The seat is the kit offering modified and detailed. Seat belts are from Radu Brinzan, excellent.











    The oxygen regulator is scratchbuilt and is the favourite part in the entire cockpit.





    Rudder pedals are also scratchbuilt from sheet aluminium just like the regulator cover.









    Hope you like!

    Thanks glad u like it. Marco all photos are welcome. The kit is so old it has become brittle and the plastic snaps at the least pressure. Quite a challenge.

    Go for it Brian , I know you can make a beautiful replica model out of it.. I have build one back in 1974 I think.. does still have the battery bay in the stand for the rotor........


    later this afternoon or tomorrow, I will upload you all the photos I have of this particular machine.......... cheers

    Mine does not have a stand Marco. I already found a good number of photos of white '12'. But there might be one i missed. My good Polish friend Dariusz of Montex sent me masks for all the markings. What a great guy. i have been wanting to do this 109 but did not find and right markings.

    Looking really good, the detail added to the cockpit is something else.

    Some more progress pics. The cockpit is done now, just painting and some minute detail left.













    My take on the trim chains.

    Any comment is superfluous but...Out of Bounds is a phrase which IMHO measures just up to the edge of your masterly workmanship!!!
