    Oh well.....
    Was gonna do Bartels Bf 109G-10 "Yellow 13", the one that he went MIA in December '44, but that would mean that I'd have to order a kit and decals and I'm in a not gonna wait mood....
    Was looking at my Royal Class Fw 190's....*naah, will keep you for a special occasion....*, Dragon's Fw 190A-7....*you wish, you're still p*ss*ng me off*, my Ju 88G-6....*he he he, ain't falling for that one!*, Ju 88C-6....*you'll become royal when the time is right, so nope* and my Ju 88 and Fw 190 Mistel...*are you f*cking kidding me?*

    Well, well, well.....what have we got here then? Tamiya 1/48 Heinkel He 219A-(wishing you were an -2)...7!



    Yoink!



    You better believe it, that this bird isn't the only one wishing that it was an A-2! :oops: :lol:

    Now this one is going to be interesting, and rather unusual!
    Nice choice Jan. Do you need any cockpit or detail shots? I think I have some knocking around in the 'special data reserved location store', more commonly known as the pile of c*ap on the floor!

    I will watch this closely, I love the look of the Uhu, and the Tamiya kit is one of the (many) ones on my mental wishlist. It does look absolutely huge as well!! :shock:

    Looking forward to it Jan, it builds up into a really neat plane.

    Why do you want it to be an A-2?

    I think that there were more built of the A-2 and they saw action from October '43, I think, while the A-7 didn't do that until late '44.
    Also, the Machine that I'd like to do is the one for Hptm Werner Baake, but I think that he flew and A-2 and not the A-7, which is the other reason...:oops: :lol:

    [​IMG]

    Werner Baake was born on 1 November 1918 at Nordhausen in Harz. Baake was posted to I./NJG 1, based at Gilze-Rijen in Holland, on 21 November 1942. On the night of 11/12 June 1943, he claimed his first two victories. Baake claimed three victories on the night 22/23 June. By the end of August 1943, Baake was serving with 3./NJG 1 based at Venlo in Holland. He had increased his tally to 23 by the end of 1943. On 22 January 1944, Baake was appointed Staffelkapitän of 2./NJG 1. He shot down a RAF Lancaster four-engine bomber over the Urft Dam on the night 27/28 January to record his 24th victory. However, Baake’s Bf 110 G-4 (W.Nr. 740 062) “G9 + ML” had been hit by return fire in this engagement. He and his crew baled out. Baake survived unharmed but his Bordfunker Uffz. Waldbauer was killed. Oberleutnant Baake was awarded the Ritterkreuz on 27 July for 33 victories. Baake was appointed Gruppenkommandeur of I./NJG 1 on 2 October 1944, succeeding Major Paul Förster (8 victories) who had been killed on 1 October. He claimed three victories on the night of 5/6 January 1945. Post-war, Baake was a flight captain with Lufthansa. He was killed in an aircraft accident at Heilsbronn on 15 July 1964.
    Werner Baake was credited with 41 victories from 195 missions. All his victories were recorded at night and include 37 four-engine bombers and one RAF Mosquito. At least nine victories achieved when he flew He 219A.
