Um... A Flugzeug?

BTW, fliegt es, for das Flugzeug, fliegt sie, for die Maschine. You used the informal Du conjugation there...

Judging from your thread title, my guess would be either a V1, a V2 or a secret Nazi "wonder weapon" aircraft like a Natter or an He 162.

More like simply a typo - the question as it stands is grammatically unsound. Should be "fliegt" (not "fliegst") if (as I suspect) he's asking "will it fly".

For those of us who took French in high school, can someone translate the German title.

Alors, Fliegst veut dire "voler"
Diesmal veut dire "cette fois"
et heinz ce n'est pas de la ketchup donc je pense que c'est un prÚnom.
Traduit ša par "est-ce que ša veut voler cette fois Heinz"?

But still i don't have a clue about what you want to put as a model Jan, maybe Bronco's Storch?

"Fliegt es diesmal Heinz" translates as "Will it fly this time, Heinz?"

Steves translation is ofcause right, but I like Jean-Bernards better

Again, Steve is pretty close on the subject, the V1 guesses





Before someone complains about the wings preventing it from going trough the tunnel, then I regret to inform, that the wings are detacheble and normally was of for storage or transport.

Its the brand new offering from Bronco Models, figures is a merry mix of verlinden resin, Tristar, Masterbox and Miniart.

JB--oh, thou are clever!
Here is my rough translation of your comment:

So Fliegst means "steal"
Diesmal means "this time"
heinz and this is not the ketchup so I think it's a name.
Translated by it "is what it fly this time Heinz?"

I think the last line should read "Will it fly this time Heinz."

Que pensez-vous?


How close am I?

That 's very cool. Is that Herr von Braun in the fedora?

As for the correction earlier, my reason was sthis: People make typos all the time. Especially me when I'm not wearing glasses. But if it was indeed grammatical, I hoped to catch it in time in case you were making a brass name plate for it.

I've seen several models/dioramas mislabeled here in the US, usually the article not agreeing with the noun. I can recall at least two with "Der Werk." It always makes me feel bad for them, having paid for wrong wording.

Besides, if the Army's gonna pay me $300/month for German, the least I can do is keep up with it.

Yep, Heinz is a name. My father has that name.

The diorama starts to look great! Your figures and V-1 also do.

Thanks Martyn,

Small update - some vegetation here and there - want to leave the impression that the tunnel is relatively fresh made, so the grass would not have grown back where the dirt have been moved etc.

Very creative Jan! Your thought process is quite valid in regards to the more recent construction of the tunnel. Clever little scene and I like it a lot

very nice diorama. The angle is great it sets the eye in motion and you start focusing on the subject. The techniques are good and really show 'ground'.

I would love it it you submitted photos for a feature.

Hi Jan,

Very promising diorama. Groundwork is great and there is an interesting interaction between the figures, enhanced by your chosen title

Wow, looks excellent, Jan. Great layout and tells a very good story, although it looks like some of the figures look like freedom fighters with the armbands

Looking forward to see more

IIRC, von Braun designed V-2, not V-1 shown in this dio...

Hi Jan,

You seem to be outdoing yourself everytime. Since that airbrush found a way to your layer you have been pushing the limits of your work constantly

Great work and wonderful little dio - how did it do in Esbjerg???

Wellspotted, nothing a little red, white and black paint can┤t fix

Thanks - we missed you - it didn┤t find its way into the judges hearts - but then again, it was a fairly quick build, and honestly it could do with a little extra work to get to a acceptable level - so that was fair enough.

It lacks soem washes ect. to be called done.

Great work Jan! Like how you've made the tunnel entrance, nice to see some height in a smaller base, looks great. Good mix of figures as well, could picture this happening a lot with the amount of experimental weapons/vehicles the Germans had come up with.

Thanks for sharing your pictures!

Cheers -
Tim

Thanks Tim,

Koen - with sand - no really - a mix of shifted sand, catlitter, crushed leaves and small branches sprinkeld over white glue and soaked with a mix of diluted white glue with pigments. - its airbrushed afterwards, still have to wash it a bit and some drybrush afterwards.
