 I keep meaning to finish assembling the bits to bash a 488...I have a pair of Italieri 188s, and keep meaning
to order the Airmodel 288 & 388 conversions...by all reports, Antares does good work.

 I suspect that buying two SH 388 kits would set me back about the same amount as the Antares kit, but
I thank you for the suggestion.

I'm hoping that some day soon they'll start doing some of these in 1/32 like the Ta 183, Me P1101 and Ho 229 to name just a few.

I'll need that 1/48 P 1101 to go along with my Ta 183 (whenever I gt around to finishing it).

Just received my 1/72 EF-132 kit from Antares. It looks beautiful! Very nice casting.
Can't wait to start this one.

I've got their He 274.  Nicely cast but the resin is a horrible stuff reminiscent of the stuff Magna started with originally - very hard and brittle, prine to chipping.  It's like the Halfords stuff but a different colour.  Not looking forward to building it.

Hi everyone

has anyone built the Me 1101 in 48 scale from Antares?  I am just wondering about the quality and fit?

cheers

with all those beautiful drawings in the ta 152- thread:
just keep in mind that the Jumo 222 had 3(!) double rows of exhausts........even kagero misses the lower ones. it was something like 3 V-engines in one, each 4 zylinders deep:

The Jumo 222 was a 24 cylinder engine, with three banks of eight cylinders (two rows of four) in a Y configuration.  Very complex engine and Junkers spent much of the war developing it, never managing to get the full rated power out of it.

Slightly off-topic, but by doing this arrangement the engine is effectively a radial.  And I've noticed that any radial that has an even amount of cylinders per row (in this case six) they have never worked properly, the Vulture is a good example too.  Most radials have an odd number of cylinders per row, 5, 7, 9 etc.  When I was a member of the AEHS (Aircraft Engine Historical Society) it was explained to me why the odd amount of cylinders work best, but I can't remember all the techinical stuff right now.
