Thread: Warbird Replicas Bf 109 club.

Wishing you a speedy recovery. My wife had a hip replacement 3 years ago. What a difference it made. Went from one who couldn't sleep at night crippled with pain to absolute normality within a couple of months.

Recently bought a part finished Acrowot at the club bring and buy. Model came with a few parts missing including instruction sheet. If anyone got an electronic copy I could have it would be most appreciated.

As I understand Richard Wills is no longer going to produce this kit or any in fact , so I,m wondering is there any interest in me doing a log of my build I have only just started on Sunday and have built the wing frame work and top skinned both sides, I'll take piccies and log progress if any interest .thanks peeps

Yes, please carry on as I’m sure there are others like me who have one on the shelf waiting to be built.

I do understand Richard. My comment was meant to be tongue in cheek. As long as I get a full 109 and retracts for the Spitfire before you finish then I will be a very happy bunny.

Had a visitor at work today!


Could it be another scale subject for Richard to create for us?

Thanks Paul, that was what I thought and needed confirming.

Hi Paul,

Yes I have cut it vertically. I was just wondering if it looks alright with a gap or whether you had found another solution. I guess as it’s on the bottom it’s not really noticeable.

24/11/2017 12:44:32

Paul, How did you do the lower part of the narcelle? Did you attach the rear part to the flap leaving a gap between the two pieces?

Trust that the 109 is coming along nicely.

Thread: Alternative to dope on Sig Koverall

Hello! I'm looking to use Sig Koverall. I know Solartex is the king of fabric and all that, but I would like to explore this product. Major Stumbling Block: I live in a flat. Dope has a nostalgic aroma, but I think my Missus and fellow tenants do not share that view.

The ultimate goal is a reasonably fuel resistant, durable and nice looking finish. Is Deluxe Materials Eze-kote a viable alternative? Any suggestions?

Edited By William Gordon 1 on 19/11/2017 01:32:30

I used Koverall on 1/4 scale motor glider(electric) and used Eze-kote cover-grip to stick it to the airframe and Eze-Kote to seal it. Be aware that you will probably need to apply at least 3 coats to seal it to make it airtight before applying any paint.

Thanks Paul. I can see it now. Have you finished the 110? Just sorting out the little detail bits on mine - Nosecone along with the weaponery. Did you make it removable? Cos I’m not sure whether it needs to be.

Well done with the 109 thread. Dwain has left it to you as he has been very quiet. Perhaps the Tiger and 110 build has taken it out of him🤓

Now did anyone spot the deliberate error?
Or in technical terms 'cockup'.?

The cowl is on upside down!
Assumption..... the mother of ALL cockups...
I assumed the motor was central on the mount. Then fitted the cowl accordingly.
All Mustangs, Spitfires,Hurricanes etc are curved up from the bottom because they are up right engines... yes the 109 is inverted so it's the other way round....Dohh!
Well after gently removing the glued on cowl and motor mount plate first refitted the cowl...the right way. Then made another mount plate but allowing for the position of the motor. Now all is good.
For all you gentleman aquiring one of these beautiful kits....REMEMBER My mistake....

Hi Paul, From your picture I can't tell whether its upside down or not. It must be very subtle.

Right guy's got the nacelle sides laminated up.question is do I sand them roughly to shape now,or wait until there on the wing. Reading the thread I see Paul did it one way and DD the other.
Definatly off the wing. Much easier to work

I used Humbrol enamels....damned expensive as used a lot of tins. Try the cheapy humbrol spray with the suction feed it covers quiet well if your compressor has a low cfm rate.

Do you know roughly how many tins you got through?

I am thinking of using Solarlac, but I need 6 different colours to mix to get the right colours according to their mixing chart. They won't get wasted as I will have another 2 warbirds to use them on

Unfortunately my expensive sparmax airbrush compressor won’t power a small air gun.

01/11/2017 22:48:58

Hi gillyg1

Good to see yours coming along.

What paint are you and Paul using. I am still trying to source some.

Guess I won’t be getting one as I like my moams and would find it hard parting with them. I don’t like squash! Would that be a fair exchange?

30/10/2017 07:44:51

Paul, you kept that quiet. It looks a simple build after the 110.

It looks nice and easy for those who haven’t done a lot of building.

Don’t give Richard ideas. I can’t afford either.

18/10/2017 21:29:23

Hi all,

I am certainly up for one. Compared with the 110 there is an amazing choice of colour schemes available.
