    By the long expectation time, we are proud to present You our latest model.
    The second issue of "Weapons of WWII" is dedicated to Messerschmitt
    Bf-109 T-1and will be available by the end of August.


    Theodor is the deck-version of famous German fighter from World War II
    Model has been accomplished with Graf Zeppelin's Tragerjagdstaffel
    camouflage. It's classical German Navy Air Force camouflage, from the
    middle 1942's.

    Our model is dedicated to all modellers. Modeller can select and build
    appropriate version - according to his skills.
    In full option You get:
    - separate rudders and ailerons
    - full armament (cannons in wings and guns in fuselage)
    - cooling system's elements (coolers in wings and fuselage)
    - engine block with oil and water installations



    Of course completing model with all installations is optional. You can
    omit any of it.

    Publication contains four A4 sheets with parts + 1 A4 with ribs.
    Also for the modeller's comfort there are description, manual and
    expanded assembly drawings (5 A4 pages).

    We also prepared optional accessories for professional custommers:

    I gotta say ... amazing.

    Hopefully the print quality will be excellent enough to challenge the quality of GPM/Halinski.

    Looking at the sample sheet and having the Shinhoto Ch-Ha I would say that we can be pretty sure of the print quality.
    This is one excellent design :thumb:

    Never being one to let a nit go by unpicked (a character flaw of mine...) the T actually means Trager, for Flugzeugtrager, not Theodore.

    I was corrected on this by one of the staff at the Deutschtechnikmuseum in Speyer where they have a large model of the Graf Zeppelin on display.

    Looks great to me.Does it come in original colours as well or only in white?

    White model is only a test build.
    Colors of the published model will be as seen on the sample sheet.

    True, but is it not conceivable that the Bf109T might have been "affectionately" referred to as "Theodore" just as the 109E was "Emil" and the 109G "Gustav"?

    Quite possible, but as I've said a few times here, nitpicking is a character flaw of mine... ;-)

    this is a excellent looking model and by the results of what i see here
    i would purchase the model,a canopy and the laser cut frames myself, but here is my deciding factor having purchased many models with NO english translations i have never completed a single one... and that makes me feel real sad
    the only thing holding me back from making my purchase is... will this be a model with english instructions? im going to put my money where my mouth is and only support model makers that do that for dumb old me.
    i dont think its to much to ask since they are being marketed to english speaking people.
    and please dont take my my frustration as arrogance,
    i just want to spend my hard earned dollars on model makers that support english readers!

    crap ill just might still buy it anyways But you get my point right?

    I am pleased to inform you that model kit is already available.
    The orders are accepted now.
    Plane is offered in to two color shades.
    First, the historic naval color shade is based on all round the world known AJ PRESS publisher.
    Second, there are two full models in one set. One is in historic camouflage and second is hypothetic painting made especially for our clients.

    Attention! Set with two planes is limited.
