      Ongoing DDoS Attack causing Forum Slowness   26/04/17

      In case you have missed the announcement, the reason that the forum has been slow at times since the minor version update the other day is due to a Denial of Service attack, brute force attack on our email, and judging by the lag with our FTP response, that too.  If you're feeling like you're experiencing a glitch in the Matrix, you're not wrong.  This is the same MO as the attack in September 2016 that occurred when we transitioned to the new version 4 of the software.  We're currently working with US and UK cyber-crime departments, who specialise in this sort of thing, and we're hopeful that we'll be able to track them down this time by using the accumulated evidence already held.    We are pretty certain that it's a continuation of the same attack last year, only at a reduced intensity to deter people from using the site "because it's terribly slow", rather than taking it down completely, and we're also sure of the motivations of those responsible.  Spite.   Please bear with us in the interim, and wish us luck in dealing with these.... "people".

  1. My contribution to this group build will be the F-RSIN 1/144 Trident 3B, in British Airways colours. By the time these were built it was known as the Hawker Siddeley Trident, but it's a DH design and I'm told it qualifies, so here goes. Box and sprue photo to start with: There aren't a lot of parts so it ought to be a quick build - however I think a lot of the effort in this build is going to be in cleaning up the parts. There's a lot of flash, the plastic all has a very rough surface, and there are some pretty big moulding flaws such as these strange craters on the surface of one wing: So I think I'll be getting through some filler on this build! Apparently the kit's shape is pretty good, and I've seen some good builds online (including on Britmodeller), the one thing that people seem to consistently want to deal with is the shape of the centre engine inlet - it's a bit pinched and looks a bit triangular. So this is where I've started - I've built up the shape of the inlet with plasticard, and filed out the inside (which you can't see here) to get a better shape. It'll need some blending in with filler, which I'll do when the fuselage is together.
  2. I wanted to have an EC-135 ARIA version of the KC-135 in 1/144... and I only saw one way to accomplish that...! So, out came the saw, plastic sheets, glue, and references... Minicraft KC-135E is the starting point... http:// I didn't take any in progress pics (like I should have) but after adding epoxy wood, miliput, super glue, plastic putty, Mr. Surfacer, and primer... here's where I am now... http:// http://
  3. Hi Folks! I'm not newcomer here because registered since 2010 and actively using britmodeller.com as reference for many cases related to plastic models building, but that is my first topic here. So... I would like to share with you here my build is ongoing on Greenmats.Club Original body: Airbus A300-600ST BELUGA Model: Revell 04206 Scale: 1/144 Aftermarket parts: no Livery: to be announced later I'll not talk about Revell kit here, just put some pictures that show what plastic parts you'll find in the box. (+ building instruction and decal)
  4. With nearly two months to go, I thought that I would make a start on a final model for this GB. My choice of subject is this little 1/144 Welsh Models Heron 1 and here are the obligatory box and contents shots before I get started. After giving the parts a wash in some warm soapy water, the next job will be to separate them from the pouring lugs.
  5. This is my latest foray into the world of 1/144th. It is the recently released Oz Models Bristol Mk 31 Freighter, in the guise of NZ5910 of the RNZAF The kit is limited run so needs a good amount of cleaning up, though the fit is generally very good indeed. I had to make the D/F loops and the aerials from scrap. The real NZ5910 was sold to a Canadian company and after another 10 years service was finally put to rest in a museum. Thanks for looking
  6. Just a placeholder for the moment because I am waiting for the kit to arrive for this build. It was due to be despatched on Monday so I am expecting it any day now, I will post photos just as soon as I can I have wanted to make a model of this very sleek looking aircraft for a while now after spotting it on a display of models representing aircraft used by British Airways/BOAC/Imperial Airways at Scale Modelworld a few years ago. I thought that it would be a nice addition to this group build and set about finding a suitable kit. A brief, but fascinating, history can be found here on the Old Machine Press site.
  7. This is a current Works in Progress. I have decided to give the Marabu designs (http://www.marabudesign.com ) PE set for the Beaufighter a go. I have a 1/144 Mk.1c from Mark1 that I will probably do in RAAF colours of Foliage Green and Earth Brown over RAAF Sky of a 30Sqn aircraft based in PNG in 1942. I am not one of those modellers who takes satisfaction in building items that can not be seen by others only 'knowing they are there'! I plan to detail this kit with the PE (and maybe some other items depending on how my time and sanity go) and allow it to be seen. I have had a few suggestions as to how to do it but as I am not that big on dioramas and the exploded view although intriguing (and something I may do at a later time), leaves me with more of a "instructional 'cut-away' display as they used to do with weapons when training soldiers. I am using the SAM Publications. Modellers Datafile number 6 "The Bristol Beaufighter" as my main reference So the pieces involved; PE set: Mark1 kit Described in detail in other threads but nevertheless a great kit with some areas that need addressing (in my opinion): Floor pieces: Glued together and the two exits cut out: Pilots entry well sides made with two part putty. I plan on having the front hatch open and so need to make the walls of the entrance well between the floor and the fuselage (otherwise the space under the floor will be seen). I am not planning to open the rear one as yet (but may change my mind!) : Some of the interior parts including 20mm cannon ammo boxes, radio and table, and side fuselage pilot consuls (I have added a box (APU) already to the floor that can be seen in the above picture): Starboard fuselage interior being prepared by thinning away a little of the plastic where the PE side will sit up against: Port fuselage side with some PE interior side panel pieces added and a large section dremelled away to allow for viewing: And the outside of the Port fuselage (I have also cut out the observer's hatch surrounds as this will be a PE part and displayed open): I will have to do painting as I go (both interior and exterior (as I am afraid that I might not adequately mask the interior when I come to spray the camo!!)).
  8. Lockheed L-1049G Super Constellation TAP, Portugal, late 1950s Minicraft kit with Classic-Airlines.com decals Tamiya Gloss White / Xtracrylix Light Aircraft Grey / Vallejo acrylic Aluminium with Klear coat Limited surface detail was scribed into the wings as the basic kit wings are featureless. Some decals from the Revell kit were used for walkways, stencils, etc. Chris
  9. I am still awaiting the arrival of my Welsh Models Albatross kit, so had another rummage around and came across this little fella. There are not a lot of parts but the masking for the paint should prove to be enough of a challenge to keep things interesting, I may even make an attempt at rigging it too.
  10. Hawker Siddeley HS748 Series 2A LAV Aeropostal, Venezuela, early 1970s This is the S&M 1/144 resin kit with decals from Classic-Airlines.com. The resin parts looked so nice when I took them out of the box, but turned into a bit of a challenge to finish. Things like the angles of the engine nacelles and difficulty in getting the rear fuselage to a nice point are still there to hint of the assembly issues. The prop blades are also a bit thin, but hey its a 748. I used the Aeropostal decals because they just look pretty, and it’s the kind of scheme we might have seen on a 748 at Farnborough in the mid 60s. Finish is Tamiya Gloss White over Xtracrylix Light Aircraft Grey. Engine nacelles are 'Rub N Buff'. De-icing strips are provided in the Classic-Airlines decal sheet. Chris
  11. This is looking very promising but I get its going to be bloody expensive to....... http://culttvman.com/main/moebius-models-2001-discovery-update/
  12. Not only a Spitfire with nose art, but a Spitfire with drop tanks too! I posted pictures of this build previously on the KG144 forum, but this Spitfire has a pretty interesting and unusual backstory which I thought might interest someone here. The scheme came on my Kitsworld decal sheet (available in all different scales and it is also on this Jbr sheet, which I suspect is equally nice and have high on my shopping list). Having just bought Hannants out of discounted Eduard Quattro Spitfires (and a very good deal they were too - under £20 for 8 Spitfires), I had to do it for the sheer novelty value. MK210 was a Mk.IXc loaned to the USAF in early-1944, who wanted to see if they could fit long-range fuel tanks to give the Spit the 'legs' of the P-51. At Wright Field, Dayton, Ohio, the Americans stripped out unnecessary weight, including the outer wing .303s, installed a large 43 gallon fuel tank behind the pilot (where the yellow filler cap is), and an enlarged oil tank. It was also modified to carry 16.5 gallon underwing P-51 drop tanks (which look vast on the Spit whereas somehow they look normal on a P-51, oddly enough). In partnership with another similarly-modified Spit, the aircraft was flown across the Atlantic in July 1944 by USAF test pilot Lt Col Gus Lundquist, seen below looking impossibly dashing (and bearing a resemblance to a young Marlon Brando). It had a hydraulics failure when it reached the Greenland staging base and was forced to make a wheels-up landing. Fortunately, the drop tanks took the hit, meaning that MK210 was deemed repairable and not written off. While Lundquist flew to the UK in a B-25 to collect the required spares, the crew chief repairing her decided to paint a pin-up on the cowling, supposedly of his wife, Tolly. Either she's idealised or he was a lucky guy. Anyway, I guess life in Greenland was pretty slow after the day's work was done. The Spit was flown on to the UK, where RAE Boscombe Down tested it. It was found to handle like a steel pig, with all the additional fuel tanks ruining the weight distribution of the aircraft, making its handling very unpredictable. Also, when the drop tanks were released at speeds above 300 mph, they had a nasty habit of damaging the underside of the wing. The British also found the nose art a bit uncouth so Tolly's offending panel was removed (although rumour has it the pilots nabbed it for the local pub). There's a question mark over whether this ever flew with the combination of both nose art and drop tanks. I have chosen to neatly ignore that question mark - while this Spit could almost certainly have made the 800-odd mile hop from Greenland to Iceland and then on to Scotland on internal fuel alone, there is no conclusive evidence that it did… so there! This is the Eduard IXc that comes in the Quattro set with Kitsworld's superb decals (comes with all the stencilling you could ever require). I stole some drop tanks and hard points from a Sweet P-51, and added the Rotol Hydulignum stencils to the prop from a Liliput Air Force sheet I have (I think these are right for a IXc). Scratch built the pitot and rear view mirror. Otherwise this is out of the box. I didn't know whether they actually replaced the panels underwing after removing the .303s, so I let sleeping dogs lie and left the cartridge ejector holes alone. At the time I also didn't know whether the full IFF MkII aerials were fitted (those are the ones going in diagonally from the horizontal tailplane to about the roundel on the fuselage) but I figured that at some point this would have been tested at Max All Up Weight, so those sorts of things probably would have been on there…I have subsequently been reliably informed that given the aircraft's date of manufacture and the note against the serial number that it had all military equipment stripped out of it, it most likely did not have this fitted (and if it did have IFF, it would have had the more discreet MkIII). Ah well, it's on there now and I am too happy about it to lose much sleep. Painted with Humbrol (topside) and Tamiya (underside), weathered with W&N oils (a new technique for me - I quite like the effect). Especially using the Kitsworld decals, this was a great fun build - I've forgotten how superb Eduard's little Spitfire is (I last built one three years ago). Needless to say I now have another seven planned! I think this has to be my favourite of all the Spitfire marks. So elegant... Thanks for looking - hope that was of some interest!
  13. I know,some of you may think "how on earth can he churn out so many models in one week ?" As my stash has grown bigger and bigger,I decided to increase my production rate and work on several airliners at once. It's also more interesting to work on different projects on and off as only on one,at least for me...I have usually 3-4 kits on my bench on which I am working on and off so from time to time 2 airliners roll off production line almost simultaneously. So,here we are,the last of the bunch is also probably the most special one. The Air France Concorde in the striking Pepsi livery. Pepsi struck a deal with Air France in 1996 to brand one of their Concordes in this special livery. Altough the Jet could not fly more than Mach 1.7 due to the color,it flew 16 flights to 10 cities from Europe to the Middle East. After that,the Concorde was repainted back in the usual all white Air France livery and entered regular service again. The whole story can be found here... http://jalopnik.com/remember-when-a-concorde-wore-this-ridiculous-pepsi-liv-1709488664 I saw pic of this Concorde back then and always though it looked cool. So I was more than happy when I found the rather rare decal set for this particular aircraft.Having the decal set,I needed to get me another Revell Concorde as the other one in my stash will receive the Singapore / British Airways livery. I am not sure but I think the decal set was made by Gio Decals.The set was already a bit aged but it was still usable,although with much care. The tail logo was the most tricky part,esp. as they didn't really wanted to lay around the edges.I had to use a lot of decal softener and carefully repaint cracks that were unavoidable. Its not as perfect as I wanted it but I can live with it and from a normal distance its not really noticeable. All additional markings come from the original Revell decal set as it has lots of detail to enhance the overall look. The build was straight forward with only minor filling and sanding areas,esp. around the wing halves. I also shortened the front gear but it still sits a tad too low on the back. I airbrushed the whole kit by using Revell enamels. Revell Blue 54 with some drops white 04 to get as close to the Pepsi blue as possible.The instructions from the decal set are no help in that matter. Revell Gloss White 04 for all white parts and Aluminium for the landing gear. The engine hot sections were painted with a mixture of satin black and iron. The fuselage and wings were also clear coated after all decals had been aplied.The Pepsi decals didn't really wanted to stick,probably due to their age ?,so the clear coating did the trick. To tone down the too shiny surface a light mist of Testors Metallic Sealer was sprayed on the whole model. Enough writing on with the pics....after this one the next batch of airliners awaits its turn on my bench...
  14. Whilst I'm messing around with the workshop upgrades I thought I'd carry out a feasibility study on scratch building in 1/144 for what I hope is an upcoming model Started with the barrel 5 diameters of brass tube soldered together, bit of car filler voila Underside with recoil cylinder fitted Work started on the base plate Quick tip for cutting bolts etc to same length Drill a hole slightly bigger in a piece of scrap, slip over the rod and slide scalpel across simples Thanks for looking Kev
  15. Hi Guys, This isn't completely done yet, but i've been itching to share it. A320 Easyjet 250th Airbus livery, made from the 1/144 Revell kit. Proved a little less cooperative than the 3 x A319's i've built, but generally not bad! Decals from Draw decal, can't remember for the life of me the site I ordered the winglets from. Chris
  16. Hi everyone. This is either very stupid, or it could be a hit. What about a 1/72 Group Build? Anything goes, as long as it is in 1/72 scale. It would be nice to see a 1/72 build "win" a GB, and with this proposal it's guaranteed to happen! Any takers? Cheers Jimmy EDIT 2017-02-03 I changed the thread title to "Small Scale Group Build" because it's much more inclusive than 1/72, which is mostly aircraft. EDIT 2017-02-06 Just to make the rules clear, "small scale" in this scenario is 1:50 or smaller. Time to bring our those big (although small in scale) naval vessels! Participants 1. JimmyZ 2.

  18. If there would be an award for "The worst kits ever produced", the Eastern Express IL-96M / T would win this price miles ahead of any other competitor... I am used to the "not so easy" kits as I build a lot of yesteryear kits.But Eastern Express' offering makes even Plasticart kits look like state of the art. Not one single piece had a decent fit let alone a seriously warped fuselage that was not only warped,it had also a different diameter in the back end which resulted in tremendous use of putty and hours of sanding sessions. I worked on and off this kit since early 2016 and finally managed to get it through my production line last weekend.Seeing this airliner now done is a big reliev. Paints used for this build are Revell gloss white 04 for the fuselage upper half,Revell grey 374 for the lower part and the wings and Testors silver for the leading edges.All applied with my airbrush. Sealed with Revell 01 gloss clear. The decal set comes from a russian ebay seller (Pimenov2010) and the quality of the decals is very good. The only thing I have to change is the display stand as the model is not sitting comfortably on it. The finished model represents this elegant airliner nicely and as I really like the IL-96,I really hope that Zvezda or Amodel would produce decent kits of both IL-96 versions. And as long as this is not going to happen this IL-96T along with my IL-96-300 will be the only ones as it is very unlikely that I have the nerves for another Eastern Express offering of this type... This IL-96 version was equipped with Pratt & Whitney engines as well as a digital 2 man cockpit by Rockwell-Collins in the hopes of selling the type also in the west. Sadly,the interest was almost non exsistent,even Aeroflot chose used DC-10s as freighters over the IL-96T. It was also probably because the IL-96 came to the market after the break of the Soviet Union when they were also able to buy western airliners The aircraft was later refitted with russian engines and cockpit as the parts had to be given back to its respective manufacturers.If this plane is still active somewhere I cant say surely. Cubana showed interest in the bigger IL-96 version,but if they will ever be delivered is unknown now that Cuba is no longer under US-restrictions. cheers, And with my usual "something else" even though they seemed more interested in whats going on in the neighborhood...
  19. looks like a beautiful kit, the level of detail is insane compared to the Eastern Express IL-96 kit I have just done. I think you can get more detailed resin engines for this kit but at the moment I don't know if it is worth it - the engines look satisfactory to me fuselage is a similar size to the IL96-400/ IL96T + IL96M. note the curved fuselage at the rear for the civil IL86 (above) a snippet of the colour scheme i intend to do. decals are not available but they are available for the 767 the fuselage is obviously larger on the IL-86 but I still think the 767 decals will be suitable for the logo on the tail and the red stripes separating the blue and green (painted areas) from the white fuselage.
  20. Friends, My name is Andrew and I, obviously, am a new member on this site. This being my first post, please allow me to briefly self-introduce. I'm from the States, currently located in Los Angeles, CA, and have been building models intermittently for the past 20-ish years. I used to build airliners regularly about 10 years ago, but have not built any models in the past two years. I recently answered the call to build some airliners again, and so here we are! The reason I joined this site, among other things, is because a lot of the references and resources I came across in my return to modelling led me here. I have found an incredible amount of new information on this site, along with some amazing model builds, airliners and otherwise. In short, my current modelling psyche has been heavily influenced by the members here, so I hope to make my own small returns. Enough babbling! The present model is the historic Revell 737-800, cut down to the length of a -700. The last time I built one of these I used resin engine and winglet replacements, but this time I wanted to build the airliner without aftermarket pieces. As such, I modified and reshaped the winglets with sheet styrene, a-la Viking's sticky in the Civil Modelling forum, and used styrene tube to create the engine intakes. Panel lines were preserved and/or re-scribed, because I'm one of THOSE guy when it comes to panel lines, and antennas and pokey-things were scratched from brass rod and/or styrene sheet. I'm not 100% content with the build: It has obvious problems that I'm happy to acknowledge, but it feels good to build an airliner, learn some new techniques, and actually finish my first model in years. And my apologies for the picture quality: My cell phone has seen better days, and my girlfriend took my lightbox for some project she's working on... PH-BGO, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines:
  21. Friends, I'm planning to make some headway on my Revell 777-300ER. I had started this kit months ago, but it sat shelved due to work and life priorities. I am also working on a Zvezda 767-300, and learned by working on that model that I absolutely will never again use the clear plastic styrene window pieces unless I'm trying to have the windows open. To that end I cracked open the 777, which I had already closed, and ripped out the clear styrene to be replaced with apoxie sculpt. Having left the apoxie to cure overnight, the plan this morning is to re-seal the fuselage and get it ready for primer. The ultimate objective on this one is B-KPL, a Cathay Pacific 777-300ER in the OneWorld scheme, and I hope to try a few new tricks that I've learned from the other modellers here. Thanks for taking a look!
  22. I've had this model in my possession since the late 1980s, my dad put it together when I was a kid and its deteriorated to the point where I considered chucking it out - but rather than that I think I'd rather have a crack at restoring it The model is missing its horizontal stabilizers although I think I know the location of one. one engine has snapped off and the landing gear is mostly history. My intention is to strip the model completely and sand down the individual parts i couldnt sand away all of the paint as it was ingrained into the plastic. I used some paint stripper but this weakened the plastic and some parts snapped like all my models I like to display them flying so the gear will be up, this requires filler for this area
  23. Bought Revells Balair CTA a310 kit (with the yellow wings) with the intention of doing it with the decals provided however I've noticed the kit comes with GE engines rather than PWs that its meant to have. I have decided to crack on and do it in alternative colours of siberian airlines I've filled the windows anyway but i did note how small they looked, obviously another error. lots of excess plastic but the fuselage halves went together better than I thought with the exception of one small section on the base of the aircraft cockpit window nicely sealed also started with the wing section. Firstly i cut a hole just big enough to fit a stand rather than glue the stand directly onto the surface when completed. also as the plane is in flight i needed to seal the undercarriage doors, there is only pieces 2 thirds of the gap so the rest has to be filled. to do so i glued spare plastic to the inside to help with that process fuselage problem area filled and sanded cleaned up this area too before gluing to fuselage now onto fitting the wings to the fuselage plastic now cleaned up and polished (horizontal stabilizers not glued - just a lovely fit) and now primed. Wing tip fences to be added later as well as stabs and engines
  24. Already in the works ...Soon the first casting
  25. Does anyone produce a decal set in 1:144 scale of the Harrier 'final flight' markings: I have a few Harrier GR.7/GR.9 kits in 1:144 scale and would like to build four of them in the markings of 800NAS FAA, 4Sqn RAF, 1 Sqn RAF and the one painted in 1969 grey/green pattern. cheers Mike
