The long awaited GASPATCH kit has been quite recently released so I immediately took the chance to start building two. They are both A-1s but judging from the quality I am getting so far I will surely build a B-1 and maybe an A-0 (future release) as well. Enjoy:

Hi Evangelos,

I stumbled on these new gaspatch Henschels last week, while browsing their website.
I was intrigued by them, and anticipated on their quality. Well judging by your photos they are up to the best plastic around, right?

I still have the esci Tamiya reboxed in the stash so not sure if I'll buy one soon.

Please keep your excellent thread, it's very well presented and informative, plus your models skills are excellent also!

Cheers

Hi Evangelos,

A superb Hs 123 you are building. Your cockpit does not look as though it could be smaller than 1/32! What amazing detail.

Hi Evangelos

Great start - and beautifully presented photos!

I bought the 'B-1 last week, so I'm looking forward to its arrival even more than ever after seeing your fantastic build!

All the best

Yes, amazing indeed, especially if you consider the fact that none of it is scratchbuilt.

Wow - fantastic build!

All that fading was accomplished with the lightened base colours?

Correct. I used oil blends for the lightened base colours.

Wow! Great job! I never knew there was another HS 123 in the works and I wasn't gonna buy the Italeri kit. I gotta check out the Gaspatch site.

Well...

I bought one. Not overly cheap, either. But I've wanted one for a while and being a small company I figured I'd better jump despite the cost.

After only 11 days, it's arrived from Greece. It's pretty awesome!
