  1. Zvezda 1/72 SU-27 SM Flanker B

    Built it It is a great kit
  2. Trumpeter new tool Avro Vulcan

    I've had a good look around the photo. Firstly there is very fine recessed panel lines on the kit. You can also clearly seen that the bomb bay is closed with a single larger part which does seem to be fixed in place, hence why it is upside down.
  3. Trumpeter new tool Avro Vulcan

    Guys I've just seen a trumpeter post on Facebook of an Avro Vulcan, no scale or anything. It was in test shot form https://www.facebook.com/TrumpeterModel/?hc_ref=ARSNDRWxBzsZGlWxarLKpKmB1eoZ9i7o9dke8llzuDUnm_O6AcuEgvQNUhs-sUThwBU&fref=nf
  4. Special dedicated kit build with sponsor 2018

    * International members that want to take part but would like to source the kit locally, then that is all good
  5. Special dedicated kit build with sponsor 2018

    Few things I want to cover with this GB * International members that want to take part but would like to source the kit locally, then that is all good * Anyone that already has the kit in their stash and would like to take part, then that is all good too. * Aftermarket decals are fine Some people's budget or SWMBO might not warrant spending even £25-£30 on the kit, also just waiting for the given date for the GB, which might conflict if we are waiting for new releases. One idea I want to put forward. The Airfix 1/72 Ju-87B2/R2 I have seen a few times mentioned from my list. I could then see if Rus could get a couple of the 1/48 kits of the same aircraft as prizes. Making it a little theme of build a small Junkers to win a big junkers, We could be looking around £10ish per kit. It is also a great kit too The Spitfire Mk.1a I find a little restricted due to not many decal options apart from the standard dark earth dark green
  6. Hi everyone This is my finished Zvezda SU-27 SM kit in 1/72 scale Kit was a great build. Took about three weeks to finish. I use the Hataka red line SU-33 paints, using UN blue and dark grey/blue for the camo. Dream model etched for cockpit and ejection seat. Kit decals were a dream to use and settled so well.
  7. CASA 212-100 Special Hobby 1:72

  10. Special dedicated kit build with sponsor 2018

    Ok, what I'm going to do is in order to get something of a theme. The subject will be a 1/72 or 1/48 aircraft with the top price being £25 maximum. What I would like us to do first is nominate an aircraft, then we'll take a selection of kits that we can run with and vote.
  11. Hi everyone I've been in contact with Enzo and one of our previous sponsors back in the 2016 MTO GB Jadlam racing models, you will remember the huge donation of kits for prizes, Russ at Jadlam contacted me the other day with the experience of the GB being so good he wanted to get involved again in sponsoring GBs on britmodeller again. Speaking with what they would like to arrange here is a dedicated build GB on a certain kit. The example we used was the new 1/48 Tamiya BF 109 G6 but the purpose of this post is to look at different alternatives and potentially vote on which kit is built. What Russ and the Jadlam team wanted to do was see a model contest where everyone has a clean slate and modellers of all levels of skill are working on the same base kit, no aftermarket can be used but scratch building is permitted. Russ was very keep to get involved in the GB by doing a couple of things, the first being a special price for the kit we choose (potentially as low as trade plus post) and prize/s He would have to stock the kit in question, they stock Airfix, Revell, Italeri, Zvezda, Tamiya and cyber hobby Enzo and the admins have given special permission to included this in 2018 GB calendar should we get the minimum of 20 people taking part and dates are TBC What I would like to do now is get the names of everyone that would like to take part first and also members giving open ideas on which kit we use. 1.

  12. Hi everyone Not heard from Enzo but if any of the future group build hosts are able to get hold of me that might be interested. I've got the potential of a sponsor looking to get involved in a group build. They have previously sponsored a GB I co-hosted and looking at options. Their preference is a Single type GB but will not eliminate a Themed GB
  13. Italeri 1/72 SU-34

    Thank you, the Hataka paint range is very spot on with the colours Thank You I don't think the war load is 100% but I just used everything in the box and attached it all.
  14. Su-35 Paint Sets

    please send me to your SU-35 work in progress please
  15. Good afternoon everyone. Some of you may have seen my updates of my build of the Italeri Su-34 in 1/72. Pleased to say that the kit is now finished. The kit went together rather well and is all oob. The main downfall for the kit is the fact the kit was produced before we had better access to Russian aircraft and as a result there are a few glaring errors, this reissue of the kit just really provides an up to date decal sheet, when compared to previous issues. The parts also require some clean up due to the injection pins in some rather odd locations. All painted using the hakata red line su-34 paint set. For those that haven't use Hataka before. This build was a test build for me to see how these paints settled as my plan is to tackle the hobby boss 1/48 Su-34. So I needed to find out the psi required on the airbrush and what ratio paint to thinner was required, as this was my first time with them. I recommend using their own thinners and thin 75% paint to 25% thinners, spray at low pressure and use a primer. Great results and i will definitely use them again. Give me your opinions please.
