Aircraft Modeling / Messerspit!
« on: March 09, 2013, 03:35:32 PM »
Well, after a break to get a new job etc. I finally have some time to model, and here is my current project!
The Messerspit was a captured Spitfire Mk.V that the Germans re-engined and re-cowled with the cowling from a Bf-110. The conversion consists of the Tamyia Spit Mk.V and the Fusion conversion for the new nose. Even though the conversion is suppose to come with declas, none were included when I got it, but fortunately Mike Grant was able to help me out with a set of the correct code letters so I could finish the model accurately.

The starting point.

The new nose fitted to the fuselage. The fit was near perfect, this is probably one of the best fitting conversion sets I have ever used.

The fuselage interior painted and weathered.

The rest of the interior, the only addition was a set of Eduard belts.

And lastly with the yellow masked off and the main camo applied. All the camo was done with Polly Scale paint, RLM 04, 74, and 75.
The decals are in progress at this point and I hope to have them done and pictures later today.

It is very interesting that the Skyknight did not have ejector seats for the crew of two, but an escape tunnel between the two seats.

Kind of scary when you think about it, if the aircraft is in trouble and the crew had to unbelt, manuver out of their seats and slide out the excape tunnel, exiting under the aircraft.

Yes :-ok  thank you. I like the XP-31, I have have the old Execuform kit somewhere, I have always thought it was a sharp looking plane.

Looks great Scott! I have a set of those same markings, to keep with a local theme with some of my builds; also have atwo seat conversion that should be comming to do a Mass. ANG "B" model, they look cool too with a big harpoon painted on each drop tank.

This will be a great build No.1, looking forward to your work on this one! Collectaire kits are cool and they offered many subjects that are still not avaliable any where else. I am lucky ot have a couple of their kits and look forward to the day when I build them.

I know I have something for North that is not a problem.....clearing the bench before Nov. 1st.....well :)) I kind of like the idea of not having a set schedule and just discussing ahead of time a subject or theme. That way it might be easier to to pick something from our collections instead of having to search for and buy a kit. Sometimes we could keep it simple like say natural metal finish, or pick something broader like carribean militaries, or wheels and tracks, or transports (aircraft, ships, trucks and cargo vehicles both civil and military). I don't know, just some ideas from me, I am easy though and can go with pretty much anything that is decided.

Hi Nico, thank you for the tip! :-ok No real worries about the superglue though as the fuselage is not together yet so the fumes are not trapped inside. The windows are quite thick so I put them in place proud of the surface of the fuselage and sand them back to match the fuselage contour and they look much better. Hopefully when I get the pictures posted it will help explain what I have done.

Some work has been done, pictures to follow. This is the slow but important part. The cabin windows do not fit particullary well and need to be superglued into place and then sanded to match the fuselage contour and then polished. After this step, every thing else should go rather quickly.
