  1. Gloster Meteor landing flaps

    Quick question, Has anybody ever tried fitting the Eduard flap set intended for a Cyber Hobby / Dragon Meteor on to an MPM/Xtrakit wing? If so how well did it go?
  2. Great Kit - went together quite easily and happy with the results. smiles all round! Somewhere along the line I am going to have to try to do something in 48 or 35 scale. Happy modelling all Ian
  3. Hello All, This is an "almost there" couple of pics for you guys and gals. The kit itself is great in my opinion, low part count, well detailed and plenty for the scratch builders and super detailers. The vehicle will be depicted on Iwo Jima. Need to get busy with the mig pigments to try to simulate the volcanic beach sand...... Happy modelling all, Ian
  4. Just like with its 1/32nd kit (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234947836-132-messerschmitt-bf110e-2-trop-by-dragon-released/), Dragon is to release very soon (August 2014), in its Wing Tech/Master Series, a 1/48th Messerschmitt Bf.110E-2 Tropical kit - ref.5560.

  5. Lee Enfield No4

    Hi all, I've always liked the old .303 - we had one down the gun club, and at 25 yards you could make one ragged hole in the target with five rounds. I even bought some vintage ammo, dug out of a container sealed in 1951, which was green all over with verdigris. Still went bang most satisfactorily though... After my long winded Attacker, I fancied something quick to follow up. I went to the stash and dug out the Dragon 1/6 Lee Enfield No4 rifle, as I'd recently bought a Lifecolor Guns and Weapons paint set and was keen to try it out. In the end, all I used was the dark wood colour for the stock, as all the metallics looked like shiny silver to me, and that's not what I was going for on this build. The wood effect was done with oils, the metallic parts are Tamiya NATO Black given a rub over to bring up the sheen. Hope you like it. I was quite pleased with how the wood grain turned out: The bolt does actually work, but it'll only scratch the paint if I do, so I'll leave it cocked and loaded: It comes with a couple of magazines and loads of spare ammo clips. I just did two: Now, what's next...? Dean
  6. Hi Everyone, Here is another of my upcoming projects : Dragon's 1:9 scale Iron Patriot kit. I will be painting this kit with primarily Tamiya Acrylic Paints : Clear Red, Titanium Silver, Metallic Blue, Steel (Revell Acrylic). The major differences between this kit and the Iron Man Mark III that I have are that a sheet of decals is supplied along with a very large gun. Anyway here are the photos of the kit. Anyway I will post progress photos once I have started on this kit. Cheers, Rick
  7. Hi Everyone, Here is my next project for duing my week off. The Dragon 1/700 scale kit of the Pennsylvania class battleship USS Arizona BB-39. This kit includes photo etched parts along with some brass anchor chain and also includes 2 Japanese Navy torpedo bombers in clear plastic. This kit does not include a display stand for the ship, however the bottom of the hull is flat so the ship can sit on the bottom of the hull, however I intend to try and design a custom stand for the ship. Anyway here are the photos of the sprues. Anyway I will be making a start on this kit tomorrow. Rick
  8. This is the Dragon kit and it's not bad at all since it only took me 3 days. Some of the decals shattered, but I suspect that age had something to do with that.

  10. Here are some recent photos of my 1/35 KingTiger Build: Very nice kit from Dragon with absolutely loads and loads of parts! + Metal barrel and brass shells Construction is almost complete, painting Detailing and Weathering to follow: Photo-etch grills: Steel Wire: The Track racks are particularly fiddley on the turret sides as there are no marking for attachment, just careful and accurate placement. Only one side complete so far. Some of the sub assemblies - immense detail for some of the parts will not be seen.

  12. Lockheed P-38J-5-LO, 42-67291, “Haleakala”, 459th FS, 80th FG, USAAF, Chittagong, India, 1944 Pilot: Lt. H.H. Sealy 1/72 model built using parts of Hasegawa and Dragon kits (done before the Academy kit became available) with some scratch building/reshaping. The only correctly shaped drop tanks I could find were borrowed from the Frog/Novo kit. Detail sets ( used completely or partially): Aires P-38J/L cockpit set, Eduard P-38J/L detail set, Squadron P-38 F(due to the early style windscreen on J-5) vacu canopy Decals: Aeromaster (all individual a/c markings were inaccurate and had to be corrected or replaced) Dragon/Italeri kit decals, Travers, Revell (P-51B) - for technical markings
  13. Dragon Kit, OOB, Painted with Tamiya Acrylics and weathered with Oils and Mig / AK / Ammo potions. Hated this kit or more precisely the 'instructions' which were by far and away the worst i've seen, with a massive mixed box of bits from various kits. Spent more time hunting parts than building. Build thread is available here Peter
  14. After a little break from modelling I was going to start a massive 1:24 Fw190, but I don't think I'd finish it before the end of this group build, so I thought I'd pull this one of the stash. Dragon 1:35 Tiger Late Production 6253 Beware, the mediocre artwork hides the monster kit - Yes, the box is full. There's a few sprues. And a load of brass bits, photo etch, a turned barrel and even a bucket to hang off rear. Should be fun!
  15. Well, as if I didn't have enough on my plate. I dug this out and found that it had markings for LAH in Normandy. Not bona fide leopard print per se, but close to it. Leopard Print in Dark Yellow, Olive Green and Chocolate Brown. If I ever change my mind about this, it's a car-yard respray and off we go. This is, actually, a pretty good kit. No kit is perfect, and the tracks are ok for DS, but I've seen better (nothing is better than Dragon DS Leopard 2 tracks - they're sublime). Actually, the tracks in this kit are a bit short from memory. There's no excuse for this, when DS is such a pliable medium, and you're not trying to make a working running gear. So, Box Art: Contents: Markings - the Leopard Print example is 2nd from the bottom:
  16. Good afternoon, This is my rendition of Dragon's Normandy Sherman in 1/72 scale: The little tank went together fine but the DS tracks were a bit of a problem. The PE straps on the back of the turret were left off because they were too hard to bend right. The only aftermarket was a metal gun barrel. Painted with AK Interactive's Olive Drab Modulation set - an incredible product BTW - and weathering Citadel paints and AK Interactive Track Rust. Hope you like it!
  17. Can't manage D-day ( they received orders on the 6th, but didn't arrive until late in they day - However they did counterattack the Canandians on D+1). This is the Dragon kit with the full skirts and molded zimmerit, which makes life easier Work commences as it normal for clanky things with loads of wheels Then adding the bolt ons to the hull. The Dragon instructions are being honest absolutely terrible - being one of their 'bag of sprues' kits from various previous issues there are loads of alternative parts. In addition there are parts missing from the instructions, and where they are marked it's by sprue and number - that would be fine if there weren't duplicate / alternative sprues. For example there are 5 different 'T' sprues, 2 'D' sprues, 4 'A' sprues. Makes it less fun to do than i'd have liked. Anyway the hull Then finally for the day, built up the exhaust, still loads more bits to add to the rear hull plate. Peter
  18. The latest batch of releases from Dragon includes the new M103A1 Heavy Tank from the Black Label range of 1/35 scale tank models. Also out this week are several re-released World War II figure sets, including German Waffen SS from D Day and British 8th Army from El Alamein. These kits are in stock and available to order now. For full details, see our newsletter.
  19. My entry is the Dragon 1/48 FW 190A-8, I will be modelling this as Priller's D-Day mount. The kit comes with excellent Cartograph decals, Dragons own steel PE and I've added an Eduard mask. I'll probably replace the wheels, I might add some Master barrels.
  20. Hi folks, Been very busy but managed to fit time in to finish this nice little kit my wife got me for Christmas. A very nice kit and well worth the effort. enjoy. Thanks for looking.
  21. I'm going start this later in the week once I've got some other bits and bobs sorted. Not sure whether to do it as a display model on in a seascape, I'll have to see how I feel the build is going. It's the Dragon 1:350 USS Chevalier and I'll be using two sets of etch from Eduard.
  22. Built for the "Less than a tenner" group build. Build thread.
  23. The set had 1 black and 1 sand & black pistol, I sprayed one of the slides silver and the sand receiver I sprayed with rattle can Krylon olive drab. The only other thing I had to do was paint the 9mm rounds. I love the replica Glock pistol case that came with the set
  24. I built these three side by side in January and then completely lost interest in them (and modelling) after the decalling stage. With the family away for Easter, I mustered the enthusiasm to get them finished. They are built from the box with the addition of tape seat straps and decals from Kits World and the spares box. Despite being an expensive kit, the P-38J was not an easy build - in fact it was one of the worst-fitting kits that I have built recently. Lightnings were not normally based at Boxted (Station 150), but this one was attached to the 61st FS and given HV codes and the red markings.Used on July 25th 1944 by Col. Hub Zemke, it made an emergency landing at Boxted after being severely damaged by flak. The stars and bars and stencils were from the kit decal sheet, and the codes were from the "Kits World Mustang Numbering/Lettering/Kill Markings Camouflage Finish" sheet. The aerial is Ez-Line attached using super glue and accelerator. The HobbyBoss kits, by comparison were cheap and delightful to build (apart from the poorly fitting canopy on the P-47D.) The rather plain Thunderbolt was Capt Robert Johnson's assigned machine in early 1944. He shot down three enemy fighters flying this aircraft. The codes were from the same Kits World sheet as the Lightning (and may be a bit small). The tail number of 276234 was created from the kit number of 276594. This involved reversing and inverting the number "5" to create the "2" and cutting off part of the loop of the "9" to create the "3". The P-51B is my salute to Lt. Col. James Howard of the 354th FG in early 1944. "Ding Hao!" is a Chinese expression of luck from Howard's time in the Far East flying with the AVG. The codes and tail number were from the the same Kits World sheet as the Lightning and Thunderbolt. The kill markings and the nose art are home-made decals. All the models were painted with Lifecolor Olive Drab and Neutral Gray. I randomly misted some lighter OD to achieve a patchy finish and then a light wash of Raw Umber that was streaked with cotton buds. Finally, exhaust staining was achieved with Mig Black Smoke pigments. I was hoping that finishing these three might motivate me to start my Airfix Tiger Moth, but I'm not sure that my modelling interest has yet been restored! Thanks for looking. You can see my other Boxted builds here.
