    Even though I have been around the forum for about couple of years now, I have not been a very active member. Well I decided is time to change that with a build that I am working on Halinski Bf-109 well here it is.... Did I mention that the scale is 1/100? Well I wanted to see how small I could go while at the same time keeping all of the original detail, is turning better that I expect it. I will be posting some of the build progress as I go. thanks and I hope this building post will be the first of many.

    Nahhhhh....
    That's a plane in 1:33 scale but Alejandr0 is 18 feet tall sign1

    Great job. I don't think there is to many modelers who have the skill and patience to build a detialed cockpit at such a small scale.

    Again thanks a lot for your kind words. I am still fairly young so I don't worry to much about my eye sight however i do not do this kind of builds too often, this build was more like an experiment to see how small I could go....

    Besides I was inspired to do so by your 1/100 spitfire so if somethings goes wrong with my eyes I will blame you Nobi...sign1... Anyways thanks a lot i'll do some updates as soon as I can. Bye.

    Beautiful work! What type of cardstock are you using? What type of glue, and to finish what type of microscope are you using to see that stuff?

    Thanks....No microscope here.... I used regular bond paper for parts and for formers regular cardstock usually used for parts :twisted:

    For glue is the most basic white all purpuse glue.

    here some more build pics..... Don't even ask about those joining strips less than a milimeter thin.....

    Wow I have trouble with nose and engine cowls in 1/33. You managed to do an excellent job with those small rings in less then half the size. Great job!

    Very nice job!!! The Bf-109's one of my favorite birds. But why is it that practically every Bf-109E4 that's made is from JG-26? This one is in the colors of Adolf Galland's bird though which is cool. I'm tinkering with a Bf-109E4/7 Trop. right now but it's in plastic.

    I look forward to seeing it when it's done....super work in such a tiny scale. I'm still cutting my teeth on card modeling and have only finished one model, but I like it so far.
