‘Planesy’s 1/24th scale collection

Hi all

Here are my 1/24th scale models so far.
The Desert scheme 109 is my little replica of ‘Black 6’ which flew for a number of years on the airshow circuits in the UK after an extensive re-build by Russ Snaden and his team.
When I first saw her fly I couldn’t believe I was seeing a Daimler-Benz powered 109 in the skies and fell in love with her uniqueness and meticulous re-build.
Sadly she succumbed to a fuel pump failure and had to do a wheels up emergency landing which flipped her on her back and was deemed irreparable.
If any of you know of this aeroplane or know the history of Black 6 you may be interested in talking to me further. Lets just say their is more to the story than is made public!
Second picture is my cabinet of completed 1/24th scale models and are from left to right top to bottom:

  1. Impressive display, Martin….looking forward to your next posting as well.

  2. Nice collection……………. I’m with Craig in looking forward to more of your postings.

  3. Some good-looking builds there Martin! I can’t imagine trying to figure out what to do with 1/24 builds! Mine are all 1/72, and space is already getting tight…

  4. I’ve seen this Emil so many times in the RAF museum at Hendon, London. I always stop and admire her; she’s like an old girlfriend, frozen in time and just beautiful to look at.
    Great work, and that that has got to be one hell of a cabinet!

  5. Hi all
    Once again many thanks for all your kind comments.
    For those of you interested in ‘Black 6’ if you haven’t already seen it I would recommend this excellent documentary on a very unique restoration.

    Enjoy and until the next time.
