    Hi guys and girls. ;)

    Last night I just couldn't stand it any more, and I decided to go shopping today - and so I did. :lol:
    I already had the BMW motorcycle kit, as some of you might remember. I bought it on QXL, the danish equivalent of eBay, but I didn't have the proper paint, and the kit has just been lying around, waiting for me to bother doing something about the paint issue. Well - that's sorted out now. :)

    So today I bought the Tamiya 1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109-E4/7 Trop and the Luftwaffe pilots and ground personnel kits - the latter was on sale, and they only had one kit left at the store!
    SNATCH! So now the tiny unassembled, unpainted Luftwaffe guys has a new home. :lol:
    I didn't get the paint for the personnel kit yet, as my budget is pretty limited for the time being. ;)
    That doesn't matter much right now; I can get started with the bike and the fighter. Yummy!

    There's three possible versions of the Bf-109 in this kit: 7./JG 26, 2./JG 27 and JG 2 (Helmut Wick).
    I'm planning to do the 7./JG 26-version.

    I also bought some fresh new paint for the fighter, I already have the glue stuff, so now all I have to do is degrease the basic kit parts, sort out the order of things, and get started.
    Man, am I looking forward to this! Yay! *rubs hands* :lol:
    Especially with the crummy summer weather we've got here in Denmark these days - then I'll have something nice to relax with in the evening when I get home. :lol: *bounceBOUNCEbounceBOUNCEbounce*

    Thanks Maxi, damn, I'm glad that I got those kits and the paint!
    And Les - I'll keep you guys posted as I build, with both text and photos. ;)

    Oh, and btw everyone - since it's been ages since the last time I've tried building model kits, any advice, tips and tricks will be both appreciated and will also be more than welcome. ;)
    And yes, I'll read up on your various threads in here in order to glean whatever knowledge and smart things to do, once I get started. ;)
    Anyway, I'll be saving the more tricky stuff (etched parts, high detailing) for other, hopefully upcoming kits, as I'd like to get used to this stuff again.
    So please don't expect too much from the start, but I will try to do my best with whatever means I've got. ;)

    Nice haul Maria, and great to see you in the modelling 'bit'. I agree with Wayne, that '109 builds into a beauty, and so does the BMW combo. Just shout if you need any help or advice, I'm sure there'll be plenty of offers!
    Jan, get down boy!

    BB will do fine. I'm sure that Jan has already put Bf 109 F and Me 262 kits in the mail so Maria can build Galland's other birds. :D

    Oh, and by the way Jan she wants an airbrush for Xmas!

    France 1940

    The lone Bf 109 of JG26 flew low over the airfield waggling its wings as a sign of victory. Once again Oberst Biker Babe had been victorious, downing three Spitfires, a Hurricane, a UFO, three seagulls and a Boeing 747 due to a warp in the space time continuum. Side slipping into a perfect landing the Emil taxied quickly towards the dispersal.

    "What a woman!" thought Feldwebel Lucky, quickly tucking a copy of Hot Jungfrau magazine into his black overalls. From the moment she'd arrived in her BMW (plus sidecar) he'd been smitten by her smouldering good looks, Gucci flight suit and stilleto flying boots. But would she even notice him, a lowly schwarzman?

    He'd tried his best, installing an MP3 player, ashtray, drinks cup holder, GPS and chemical toilet to her Emil but she seemed aloof to his efforts. It was that damned Oberst Maximowitz of NJG 4 and three quarters who held her unwavering gaze....

    To be continued... :D

    It will be suitably romantic I assure you. "Plucky young Swede falls in love with Danish Biker Babe, Oberst Maximowitz dies in combat against European swallow (unladen)", that sort of thing.

    You come from Sodertalje, you've suffered enough!

    Well.... born in Sodertalje, lived in Stockholm and Tumba, moved to Ostersund in '76....

    Would you mind making the Oberst crash into a pile of manure?




    Btw Maria, is that a Accelleratii Incredibus AKA Roadrunner mouse mat?

    Tumba! I've been there, the only place I could pronounce!. Flemingsburg, Tullinge, er, Alvjo, er, Allvjo er, ah, f*ck it! Stockholm!

    Tumba has a fine systembolag...state off licence! Kept me sane I can tell you. 350 sek for a bottle of whisky is a total bargain. Not. :D

    You forgot the help- and very useful built-in parking cameras! ;)
    Otherwise:

    Jeez Max, you had me in stitches here! :lol: :) ;)

    In other words - with a slightly rephrased-for-the-occasion Fawlty Towers-quote: "Never mind him, he's from Sweden!" ;)
    And yes, that's a Wile E. Coyote-and-Roadrunner-mouse mat I've got. :)

    I'm definitely looking forward to that - and the airbrush, too. ;) :lol:

    You mean "bj├Žsk", wich is the local dialect for a bitter with various kinds of herbs and spices. Yuck, by the way! :lol:
