Alin Osarik's Merlin engine for the Spitfire Vb has arrived!

[Note (25 nov 2007): Alin's Merlin engine has arrived and can be downloaded. See this post below. Download from Kartonbau.de.]

----------

Guess what Santa may be bringing this year? If we are lucky, a brand new Merlin engine for the Halinski MkV Spitfire!

These glad tidings come from Alin Osarik, designer of the free download DB601 engine (see this thread). In a letter to me Alin says he is 90 percent finished with this long-awaited project, and estimates another 5-10 days, until we can have it here at Kartonbau.de!

How's that for a Christmas present, Martin ("Sparrowhawk")?

Attached you will find the two images Alin has sent me, plus what I imagine is a proper bulkhead conversion for the Halinski kit. We will soon find out more.

Meanwhile, please do Alin the honour of visiting his own website at http://www.amod.estranky.cz/ . You may catch quite a liking to his 1/200 scale LZ-129 Hindenburg, or his 1:200 Hood framework, or his T35 tank, all for free and with beautiful 3D illustrations.

thanks Alin for designing and Leif for presenting.

Have a good day, n ow I have one.

T35

Matthias,

You will find it under "Fotoalbum" - http://www.amod.estranky.cz/fotoalbum/vystrihovanky/t-35

There are two sheets and several photos. Not being a tank-builder, I can't say whether this is a work in progress or a complete model.

"Skip this ad"

Dieter,

I see what you mean - the files are at the zshare site, which means ads pop up. However, there is also a red arrow at the top right saying "Skip this ad".

It helps, once you find it...

LZ129 files:

RE: Upcoming: Alin Osarik's Merlin engine for the Halinski Spitfire Vb

Thanks for the news! I hope this trend continues and we'll soon be able to build most of the major WW2 fighters with detailed engine kits if we desire.

Alin's Merlin is here!

It is a great honour for me to announce that Alin Osarik's magnificent Merlin engine for the Halinski Spitfire Vb has arrived and can be downloaded from here:

http://www.zshare.net/download/514063141e3e17/

It is very hard for me to convey my feelings of utter admiration and happiness facing this card model. Suffice it to say, that right now I hold this to be the finest example of card modeling design that I have yet come across.

True, I certainly am biased, since the model is within the range that I have a special feeling for; and true, it is "only" an add-on to an already top-of-the-line model. But that doesn't quite convey what this model is about at all. It is the detailedness, and the very delicate structure that impresses me most. Is this really possible to accomplish in paper (and some wire parts)?

This model makes me doubt my ability to build it, absolutely. And yet, there seems no way of resisting it, particularly since the Spitfire has drawn me for several years now. I just haven't felt ready for this beauty yet, but now perhaps I will just have to face up to it. For me, any other scale than 1/16 would be impossible, but I know there are many masters out there who would be ready to take on this challenge also in its original 1/33 scale.

Please, download the Merlin and study it closely, for the pure joy of studying a card-model masterpiece. Although the model as such is only one page, there are no less than 34 (sic!) pages in all, including a straight three-way line drawing, and five separate 3-D modeled straight views. All the rest are step-by-step instruction sketches.

Not a single word, just sketches, which makes this a truly multi-lingual model.

Alin is the author also of the DB601 engine, suitable for the Halinski Messerschmitt BF 109F. See this thread. Both models are free downloads, which is a wonderful witness to the generosity so often encountered in card modelling.

Note 1: For all of you who immediately will want to download the model, please note that the zshare-site where it is now hosted will create a lot of pop-ups, including one that totally covers the download page. Press the "Skip this ad" sign at the top right corner to get back to the download page.

Note 2: Adminstrators, please note that Alin wishes to host his Merlin engine also here at Kartonbau.de. Please take advantage of this generous offer and add his Merlin to the download section!

Below just a few samples of Alin's many beautiful instructional drawings, plus an illustration of the original Merlin kit. Go download the original and have a look for yourself!

Well, as Leif wrote: Merlin arrived
I can say: Hope, will arrive soon in to my cage :D



Since Merlin is the only not-yet builded, should be done urgently 8)

It is normal to own ORIGINAL

Lovely!!!!!
I´will have plenty use for this one. Not only for my spitfires but also as an engine for my plastic Centurion battle tank. The Meteor engine in thatone is quite close related to the Merlin.
Superb work!
