Messerschmitt BF109G Fighter Model: Aircraft Modeling Revolution (II)

Our modelers continue with the second part of the post about the premium scale model of the famous German Messerschmitt BF109G fighter. They add that “the structure of the fuselage has been reinforced as a grid as on the tail. Then, we give a great strength, firmness and longevity to the BF109G model. In this way, lovers of aircraft modeling who assemble this replica will see that many parts are fully coupled. That is because it has tabs and grooves that almost make the use of glue unnecessary.

One of the fabulous features of the Messerschmitt BF109G, German fighter metal and plastic model is the inclusion of an electronic system for the propeller movement and for the LED position and existing control panel in the cabin. According to Artesania Latina’s team, this design work has been quite difficult because “it has been necessary to introduce the entire electrical system inside the tank with a ‘L’ form, which is located just below the pilot seat.”

In addition, for the wiring to be quite imperceptible, “the arrangement of the cable has been taken care of in detail, because a grayish color similar to steel has been chosen and it has been arranged in parallel to the wing grids and the fuselage”, says one of our experts. Precisely, the metal parts to build these area and the rest of the structure come in stainless steel photo-etched and injected die-cast.

FAITHFUL REPLICA WITH GREAT REALISM: MESSERSCHMITT BF109G MODEL

Impressive its great realism! It has mobile parts, such as its manual retractable landing gears; its practicable cockpit dome; and its practicable ailerons, flaps and rudder.

The amount of detail that 3D designers have included in this aviation modeling artwork is very high: the model of the BF 109 has radio, battery, oscilloscope and oxygen cylinders, among other decoration accessories.

After this exhaustive test / error labor until everything fits perfectly, one of our designers clarifies this issue. “We have not had problems designing the structure of the plane as soon as the parts have been printed everything has fit completely. However, yes on the tail because it was turned. In conclusion, we have decided to redesign it again before sending it to factory for its production, being now totally fixed”, explains the expert.

Ship Modeling & Model Aircrafts. The Legacy of Building Wooden Models

Modelers have realized how children and parents hobbies have changed during the last two decades after the arrival of new technologies. Many of them and their younger relatives have decided to keep alive as a legacy one of the most beneficial and comforting hobbies. Ship modeling and model aircrafts are the perfect choice. Building wooden model ships, aircrafts, trains and other vehicles like the Stage Coach 1848 from the Wild & Far West you will enjoy a lot.

It’s a hundred-year-old entertainment that brings health and satisfaction to modelers –and some good headaches to solve-. You can always find time to take a break and park on the fabulous worlds of ship modeling and aircrafts.

This balance occurs when a wooden model ship like the Viking is built. Firstly, because it is a renewed classic scale model aimed at the beginner friends of Artesania Latina for its great appeal – a boat present on famous tv series from that population -. Secondly, due to its reedited assembly instructions with video tutorials on DVD. In conclusion, construction games and use of digital devices come together in a perfect fusion because the modeler builds handly and watches the guide on the computer. In other words, tradition and modernity at the same time.

NEW GENERATIONS RESTART THEIR PARENTS SHIP MODELING & AIRCFRATS TRADITION

The children and grandchildren of modelers come to a moment in their lives that they want to continue the modeling hobby of their parents and ancestors. That’s because this way let to feel them closer when they still live with us, by continuously sharing gossip about this hobby. It also happens when they have left them, because they are remembered and they are more present in our world. They are carrying on with this beautiful legacy deposited in their hearts by naval modeling, by aircraft modeling or by railway modeling, among others.

Artesania Latina encourages all its friends to share multimedia contents of the models on social networks. You can also do it on those of our firm (Facebook, Instagram and Youtube). Continue requesting instructions, plans or missing or broken parts for their elderly parents or for yourself. Request us what you need if you want to finish an scale model, unfinished by your parents.

SHIP MODELING AND AICRAFTS REPORT PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH TO MODELERS

Construction toys, present of course in modeling in the form of scale models, are ideal for improving the health and psyche of old and young people. Physically, their assembly increases motor skills and coordination in the hands and fingers because the modeler must be skillful and precise in the placement of the piece and must manipulate many parts that are even very tiny. Some studies also claim that vision improves because the model maker discards different shades of the same color.

In the psychological field, it gives us relaxation, serenity and concentration by having to work a lot with detail. It is, in short, an unbeatable barrier against Alzheimer illness. It develops cognitive skills that facilitate analysis, comprehension, understanding the space in which one the modeler works, reading and mathematics.

The logical reasoning is enriched as the model maker has to build an exact copy of a wooden ship model or a wooden and metal airplane model. You must plan in advance the assembly phases of the scale model and determine what order to carry them out: logically, to place the masts, first you have to build the ship’s hull, or to install the cabin you have to finish the aircraft structure before. What about the great self-esteem that is gained when, after a great effort and passion, the replica is finished for exhibition.

In short, all these benefits are a good excuse for the little ones to enter in modeling world. It is a hobby that is passed from generation to generation as part of oldest modelers genetics, who wish it survives thanks to their descendants.Ship modeling. Wooden Ship Model Arab Dhow Sultan 1/85

Secondly, the practice of modeling can remain in their lives. it will be of great use for the health knowing all the positive things that this hobby offers.

The Art&Kids Collection catalog, focused on children from 8 years old, has the following wooden models for construction: classic ships such as the Pirate, the Viking called Drakkar, the Egyptian Cleopatra and the Roman Galley Ave Caesar; fighter airplanes such as the Sopwith Camel biplane and the Fokker Dr. I triplane, both from World War I; and four-wheelers such as the well-known Surfer’s Van.Art&Kids Collection.

On the first floor of the pavilion, we have seen medieval historical re-enactments on scale and demonstrations to teach how to paint ship models, planes models and many more miniatures. We also have learned how to achieve oxides in vehicles, weathering in special ships and which are the best complements for dioramas. All the people have enjoy the fantastic presentations of experts on model building or a jury of the contest of the highest level. One of those members has been one of Artesania Latina modelers.
