  1. Amodel is to release in 2016 a 1/72nd de Havilland D.H.104 Dove kit - ref.72334 Source: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234997175-amodel-new-172nd-1144th-kits-in-2016-update/ V.P.
  2. He everyone! This is my next model. From Ukraine's "A-model" firm. Who are familiar with the products of this company - he knows that it's actually not a model, and the workpiece. Model is still necessary to release the excess plastic and work a bit like a sculptor)).
  3. AModel is to release a 1/72nd American Gyro AG-4 Crusader kit - ref. Sprues V.P.
  4. Good afternoon all, Hope you like my take on the 1/72 AModel Shavrov Sh-2 Hydroplane in Finland. AModel kits are good fun but you need a lot of patience... Kit required all parts to be removed from the runners with a razor saw, much reshaping and sanding (using wet n dry paper), and model filler smoothed flat using wet n dry paper - Preferably wet to cut down the dust debris. I used the new range of Lifecolor acrylic paints covering colors used by Finland - Brush painted as always. The big surprise for me was the decals they worked really well and even submitted my rough handling and application. I thoroughly enjoyed making this model kit and this won't be my last AModel kit for sure ! Comments and advice welcome.
  5. Canberra T13

    From other end of the scale after working on my Monogram F-106 comes this 1/144 Canberra. It is by A-model and I think I used nearly as much filler on this as I did on my Airfix 1/48th Canberra. To allow for multiple variants the nose centre section and tail are separate assemblies so alignment was fun. I'm not sure I got it right though. Like it's 1/48 scale counterpart no matter how much lead shot I packed into the nose it was still going to be a tail sitter so as with the real thing a prop was placed under the rear fuselage. I reshaped the nose to remove the bomb-aimers window to create a T.13 nose then disaster struck and I ruined the canopy. Hence the black painted cockpit. Something that looks ok-ish in 1/144 but I reckoned the chances of a replacement part were less than zero. The decal are mixture of the kit, which surprisingly nice, Xtradecal for the codes and the silver ferns on the roundels are hand painted. As always thanks for looking.
  6. Hello people , This is my first WIP. I have really enjoyed reading and watching the WIP's of others and feel it is time to try to give something back. I have a variety of interests in terms of modelling, but I always seem to come back to aircraft and AFV's of the Spanish Civil War. The variety of aircraft used is quite incredible and moreover, many were simply 1930's 'Golden Age' civil aircraft impressed into often quite bizarre roles; for example passenger Vultee aircraft and Fokker FVII/3M's becoming bombers. Nevertheless this was a proving ground or test run for many new technologies. In terms of aircraft the I-16 'Mosca', (the subject of this build) and the very first Bf-109 'V' prototypes then A (or is it B1?) through to E series, saw their baptism of fire here. The history of the conflict is well documented on the internet and in good old traditional books, and there are some simply splendid (albeit sometimes a little rare and expensive) books available on the aircraft involved in the conflict. Controversy about colours and actual aircraft involved is absolutely rampant and in a way, quite liberating. Within the community of Spanish Civil War modelling enthusiasts I know (not many!) a great deal of encouragement and artistic licence is granted. There is so little that can be certain, from actual numbers/codes of aircraft involved (BF-109C for example) to types (was there really an RWD-8 and a Bloch MB-200?) to, well, just about everything down to the colour of a particular Republican pilot's socks, or the strength and lens thickness of a particular Legion Condor pilot's monocle . OK. About me. I'm currently not very good at making models. In fact I'm certain that I'm not as good as I was when I was 9 years old and high as a kite on polystyrene cement most of the week, making at least 2 models a week, with very high standards for a little boy. But it was fun wasn't it? My grandfather had been a career RN man (Russian Convoys and MTO in WWII) and encouraged me into modelling. My introduction to modelling is described on the intro post I made some months ago to BM and a little more in my 'about me' so I won't ramble on about my early abject failures. Needless to say I returned to models after a bereavement in 2003 and it really helped me, like a breath of fresh air. Then work and an illness prevented me from starting again until last year. I thoroughly enjoy it, but I keep on trashing my efforts. Perhaps time to lower my standards? I think it would be far better to use this opportunity to probably demonstrate to the world at large that I am still highly capable of an abject failure.... Thus, onto this model. Amodel. What a fascinating company. That's one adjective. Others can be used. Nearly all of their kits pose a challenge in one way or another, they are short run, yet often they are short run for so long that the very sprue runs, and we end up with nothing but flash from which to try to identify and carve our own components . Nevertheless, they kit some wonderfully obscure subjects, and I love the wonderfully obscure! Thus - I feel I help keep someone, possibly in a cold dark cellar in Murmansk, with a scriber, some faded plans, some resin and a bottle of vodka, in a job. Some of their kits go together beautifully straight from the sprue, but there are some, like this little, tubby, I-16 that can be exceedingly variable in terms of moulding quality. In this case, from production batch to production batch. Ask me how I know. I decided to post this as my first WIP because, frankly, this model can be a real pain in the derriere. I know it isn't just me; it is known for possibly needing a bucket of filler. Moreover it has some issues, probably the main one is the wings. They aren't really of the right kind for an I-16 type 5 of the SCW (as I will refer to that very 'uncivil' war from now on). Other issues I will discuss as we progress together into the build. I have not completed a model since I started again around a year ago. To be honest they have all been rubbish and have flown directly into the dustbin. Often. Around 10 now. I have tried to build this one 4 times now. Dustbin; 3 times out of 4. The 4th attempt is in the drawer of doom. This will be attempt number 5. I am posting this, perhaps foolishly, because I had a Really Big Think™. I may, just may, have figured out a way to make this without the usually required bucket of filler. I'm sure I'm not the first, but I may perhaps be the most incompetent, so it should surely provide a little entertainment. I hope so anyway. I'm not awfully sure I have this Photobucket thing worked out yet, so I will only try to post a picture of the box here. I hope it works. I hope this WIP at least helps fellow modellers to see the fun a cheap little East European kit can give, even when it is utterly frustrating and maybe, together, we can find a way to tame this little beastie ?. Best regards, thanks for reading and happy modelling Tony Edited for terrible spelling.

  9. I'm going to build two Antonov twins - an An-24T and an An-30 - both 1/72 Amodel kits. There's a lot of commonality between the two kits so I'm going to build both together. I've more or less decided that the An-30 will be in MIAT Mongolian Airlines colours and the An-24T will be in Sudan Airways colours. There are a quite a few good colour schemes for an An-30 but the Mongolian one stood out, whilst there aren't many that stand out for an An-24T - Sudan Airways being the exception. You can see what I have in mind at these links: Sudan Airways An-24T MIAT Mongolian Airlines An-30 I'll have to print my own decals for both of these. There are quite a lot of photos of the Mongolian An-30s online - plus several other aircraft in the same colour scheme - so there are some good references to work from for that one. There aren't so many photos of the Sudanese An-24, but it's a fairly simple colour scheme, so should be ok. I won't be using a lot of aftermarket - just Armory resin wheels and KV masks (a mask is essential for the glazed nose of the An-30!). Box and sprue shots (there's a lot of empty space in these boxes!): Can't wait to get started!
  10. Here's my Amodel Antonov An-24T, built for the From Russia With Love group build. Build thread is here. It's finished as CCCP-46280, which was the fourth production An-24T, in the colour scheme it wore at the 1967 and 1969 Paris air shows. The mustard yellow colour seems quite appropriate for the era - perhaps even ahead of the time, it seems a bit 70s to me (it reminds me of the colour of our next door neighbour's Morris Marina). The kit is fairly standard Amodel - nothing fits particularly well, but with careful alignment and a bit of fettling everything goes together ok. There's some quite nice, very fine surface detail which inevitably was largely obliterated through extensive use of sanding sticks. The fuselage was in four parts, which is pretty much standard for Amodel kits of this size, which required careful work to line everything up properly - that was probably the worst of it. Not much aftermarket used - the wheels are from Armory (the kit wheels were probably ok but I hate assembling two-piece wheels) and I used KV masks (worked very well, left a bit of residue on the windows though - the best solution seemed to be to lick it and rub it off with kitchen paper) The yellow is a mix of Tamiya yellow and dark yellow. I seem to have spent quite a lot of my modelling time over the last few weekends masking! Decals are from Bsmodelle (very nice, very cheap, thin but not too thin, went on and conformed very well but you have to position them carefully as they don't want to move once they're on). All in all, a satisfying build, and I'm pretty pleased with how it's turned out. I'm quite fond of the colour scheme although I'm not sure I'd have painted the real thing like this. On to the photos:

  13. OK, I'm in with a dh 60G from Amodel in 1/48. The most commented downside of this kit is that Amodel don't give a rigging diagram in the instructions - but that should be solvable from the web. In the box, there are three decal choices - I'll probable go for the forth option On the sprue, this kit looks great, and I must admit that I'm tempted to get one, or both, of the other Amodel dh60's (Cirrus or Metal Moths) ... but let's start simple(r)
  14. In a fit of either bravery or insanity, decided it was time to tackle something which has been lurking in the stash for a while.... Reference materials downloaded to Kindle.... "... we're going to need a bigger desk...." .

  16. I had forgot all about this GB then I saw the title a few days ago just as I was about to start this, the Amodel 1/48th Yak-52. Lovely little kit but typical Amodel, flash here and there, nice decals & etch. I flew in a Yak-52 last year down at Popham, G-YAKI, a superb experience and one I hope to experience again soon and my main reason for building this kit, although I will be doing it in the kit decals, but I would love to build a G-YAKI! as for the model, two photos of the boxart and what you get. Thanks for looking in.

  19. Just finished my Amodel 1/72 Tu-134A as an aircraft of Kazaviaspas, the air operation of the Kazakhstan Ministry of Emergency Situations. The choice of colour scheme might sound a bit odd - I wanted to build it as an aircraft that's currently (or at least recently) in service, which narrows it down, and a colour scheme where I could print the decals myself, so after some googling I hit on this one. It was an enjoyable build - not straightforward, challenging enough to make it interesting but never frustrating. I used the Neomega engine details and Armory wheels, and KV masks, so pretty much all the aftermarket that's available for this kit. Decals were home made - my first attempt at decal printing, and pretty pleased with how they came out. WIP thread is here On to the photos (apologies for the state of the table top, really should have cleaned it!):

  22. de Havilland Cirrus Moth G-EBLV

    I am planning a quick build [read: less than a month!] of the Amodel kit, and the only option is G-EBLV as preserved by the Shuttleworth Trust. According to the Wikipedia it had the Lancashire Aero Club as first owner. I wonder if in the same blue and silver livery? And the interior, light grey and wood, as suggested by the instructions? Another option (may be not so colourful, but more interesting historically) is Lady Bailys's G-EBTG, but this poses the problem (for a quick build!) of the exposed engine. Anyway, is it all silver with black registration? https://www.thisdayinaviation.com/tag/the-honorable-dame-mary-bailey-cbe/ Any help on the above, or suggestions of other historical and colourful options that I can do with my printer (that excludes white registrations...) or with available decals very appreciated! I have all the Amodel boxes with extra parts (different fuselages, slatted wings, different props, etc) so I'm not confined to a Cirrus Moth. Carlos
  23. 1/144 AN-225 Mriya

    just found this: https://www.modelimex.com/1-144-an-225-mriya hope it comes to fruition!
  24. Hello fellow modellers, I hope you are having a pleasant weekend. I am building a 1/72nd scale Amodel Polikarpov I-16 Type 5. Unfortunately something strange happened to the canopy. It is no longer clear, it has gone a milky white and is now opaque. I live in Queensland Australia and had stored it in a little parts tin. I feel maybe humidity or some other factor related to heat caused this change, as it hasn't happened to canopies stored in normal kit boxes or zip-lock bags. It has probably been cooked! I have tried emailing Amodel and they cannot provide a canopy, only complete kits. I then found out that Falcon list an I-16 canopy in their Russian canopy 1/72 set. Unfortunately it isn't listed as an individual item in the Squadron range, so I would have to buy the complete Falcon set. It would be better value for money to buy this set than another I-16 kit, but I can't find any pictures of the Falcon set and wondered if the canopy included is the correct early type I need? It needs to be quite 'tent' shaped and fully enclosed. Does anyone know what type is in the set? Finally, I am hoping to model a Spanish Civil War Example (I know the kit has probably the wrong type of wings. I can live with this - this time ). I did wonder if anyone knows of a picture showing a SCW Polikarpov Type 5 (6?) with the later, open, round windshield rather than canopy? So far I have only seen this on type 10's, but if any type 5's like this existed my problem is solved. I have a good non-fogged one as I left it in the kit box rather than in the 'cooking' tin! I wonder why it became so fogged in that little tin, was it really that warm in there? Thank you for reading All best regards Tony
