  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. After several rainy days in a row, the sun thankfully put in an appearance for today's event at The Shuttleworth Collection: The Gathering Of Moths. This is a free event and well worth coming to if vintage aeroplanes are your thing. I took a few pictures while I was there. Ok, I tell a lie: I took over 700 pictures while I was there! The lighting conditions were constantly changing, and proved to be a bit of a challenge at times. Anyway, I have opened a temporary account at Flickr (I can't stand Flickr, but it'll do until I find something better) to host a small selection of the photos. Here's a few of them: (Well, that was an effort! I see that Flickr is just as "user friendly" as it was ten years ago!) The Paddock was opened to the great unwashed for ninety minutes, which I think is mainly a brilliant idea. Mainly, because it's bloomin' difficult to get a good pic while the world and his wife are blissfully unaware of everyone and everything around them, displaying all the situational awareness of a bat wearing ear muffs. My patience was tried many times today, but it was well worth it in the end and I have to thank the Collection for the opportunity to get close to so many lovely, old aeroplanes. Once I have found a suitable replacement for P****bucket, I will gradually get round to re-uploading all my old pictures, plus all the new ones I've taken since, which is probably around a thousand! I'm thinking about giving Smugmug a go, as they seem to offer exactly what I'm after. I'd be interested to hear from anyone who has experience of it, or thoughts on alternatives. I tried Village Photos, but it was just awful. Nothing worked properly and it took over a month for support to get back to me! That's deleted now. Cheers, Mark.
  3. I'm going to record here my progress on a long-term triple build. It's quite likely that I'll deviate away from time to time to build something else (and I have a Sherman to build for the Great Patriotic War GB), so this may take a while to finish. I have always found De Havilland aircraft to be rather attractive designs, and their distinctive twin-boom jet designs also grabbed my attention when I was a kid. One of the first kits I bought as an adult was the Airfix 1/48 Sea Vixen. I realised when I got home just how big the finished article would be, and it entered the stash as "one for the future". Move on a few years and Airfix released their new tool 1/72 Vampire trainer. I resisted the kit as I didn't particularly like the included schemes and didn't find an aftermarket decal sheet justifiable, but Home Bargains' recent cheap sale of what I assume were Airfix overstocks meant that two kits entered my stash. Crisp's terrific and very educational Sea Vixen FAW.1 build (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234973210-de-havilland-sea-vixen-faw1-890nas-hms-ark-royal-1963-4/) was the final straw catalyst. No more excuses! But first, let's build something a bit smaller. You know, for twin boom practice... None of these are going to be completely OOB, but neither am I exactly going to town on the aftermarket. I'll be doing both Vampires in schemes from the Xtradecal overseas operators sheet #2. One will definitely be in the sand/brown Chilean camo scheme: The other I think will probably be in the Lebanese scheme, though I could easily be tempted by the Swiss and Aussie options on the sheet (or I may just wimp out at the prospect of the red and yellow bands required). I've picked up a couple of the Pavla ejection seats to go in that one; I suspect anything else in the cockpit will be invisible at this scale. Of course, they'll both be dwarfed by their big FAA sister. Again, she won't be OOB as I have some Eduard etch for the interior, and I've invested in a nice new pot of EDSG. Can't wait to brush paint all of that

  7. This was my entry to the Tiger Moth GB back in the summer of 2015. I didn't manage to finish it in the time frame of the GB and it has been untouched since. I'll try to finish it now. Thanks for looking. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Hello, As if I didn't have enough ongoing builds, I decided to participate in this GB. I will be building Airfix's 1/72 Tiger Moth in RAF Flight Training School colours, 1940. Here are the kit, sprues and decals: Here's the camouflage scheme: The kit is nicely detailed out of the box but I will add Eduard's PE fret to the build. I have this on order with my LHS and it should arrive in mid-August. Until then I won't be doing much on the kit, if at all. The aircraft will be rigged, of course. It will be done with elastic fishing line glued with CA. That's all for now. Thanks for looking. Jaime
  8. Having been lucky enough to see the Vampire flying at Wellesbourne last year, I was keen to have a go at recreating the little rocket myself (my son too, as it's one of his favourite planes). I've have begun painting the cockpit of the Airfix Dehavilland vampire T.11, adding some minor details to the sides and weathering to the floor and seats, ejector seat handles painted (using fuse wire), awaiting attachment once the seats are secure. Finished painting the pilot and trainer last night (using the closest colour paints I have in my collection), after beheading the trainer and re-fixing his head so he looks like he is observing his trainee. Updates to follow as I progress.
  9. I'm not sure I should be starting a 2nd WIP thread with one still outstanding and a RFI still to post but hey ho I've made a start on a pair of de Havilland jets - the Airfix Vampire T11 and Revell Sea Vixen. No aftermarket toys - I'm aiming for a relaxed and easy life I hadn't quite realized how big the difference in sizes between these planes was. With the family resemblance I thought they'd be similar(ish) but the Vixen is a behemoth The most minor of mods for the Sea Vixen - reshaped seat based on the kit seat with added stretched sprue and scrap polystyrene sheet to make something that if you squint could look almost right and a couple of shims of sheet added to stretch and slim the nose a bit (which handily gives me a neat compartment for hiding some fishing weights) Other than that it has been mundane cobbling together with the odd dash of regret (I wish I'd made more effort on the Vixen cockpit now that it is sealed up). a lot of filling and sanding is in the offing
  10. AZ model is to release a new tool family of 1/72nd de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito. Among others the NF.30 variant.

  11. Hello fellow modellers, I would like to share my latest build with you. Since the Mosquito is a British plane, I think here is where 'she' belongs... Mosquito B Mk. IV Series II (Film Production Unit - FPU 1944) Serial No. DZ414, Callsign 'O' Orange with 'camera' mission markings... DZ414 was handpicked out at Hatfield Aerodrome (The De Havilland Factory) on 22. December 1942 by Flt Lt C.E.S. Patterson for service with the FPU ( RAF Film Production Unit). He subsequently flew DZ414 for 20.000 of its 24.000 miles, including its debut operation to L’Orient on 14. February 1943 in the wake of the 466-bomber raid staged the night before, the night bombing attack on Berlin on 20/21 April 1943 (performed to coincide with Hitler’s birthday), when DZ414 was badly damaged by flak, the raids on Turin and Nürnburg, and on the long-range operation to Jena on 27. May. The second ‘B’ on the nose is for the Berlin operation on 13/14 May 1943. Whilst part of the 2nd TAF, DZ414 took part in many notable operations, including 14 anti-Diver sorties (V-1 Flying Bombs) flown by Flt Lt Vic Hester of No 613 Sqn. along with cameraman, Flg Off Oakley, between 19-25. June 1944. The aircraft also participated in the Amiens prison raid on 18 February 1944, its pilot Flt Lt Tony Wickham, making three passes over the burning prison so as to allow Plt Off Leigh Howard to film the flight of 255 of the 700 prisoners released through the breached walls. On 31. of October DZ414 participated in the attack on the Gestapo headquarters in Aarhus, Denmark, filming the attack on the buildings of Aarhus University. Finally, on 21. March 1945 DZ414 was flown by Fit Lt K L Greenwood of No 487 Sqn. RNZAF, as part of the force sent on the Shellhouse raid, Flg Off E Moore of the FPU filming the first wave attack on the building. Despite its wartime contribution, this veteran machine was SoC in October 1946 and unceremoniously scrapped. The kit is HK Models 1/32 Mosquito B Mk. IV Series II. Aftermarket photoetch parts from Eduard & Profimodeller + a lot of scratchbuilding. HGW seatbelts. The RAF Accumulator Trolley is a resin kit from Iconicair with a scratch built JAP Engine Generator on top. None of the kit glass was used, instead the vac-formed canopy/nose glass from Tasman was used. And finally, some detail photos of the build... The cockpit, a mix of Eduard and Profimodeller photoetch together wit a lot of scratch built details... Rolls-Royce engine with cooper and lead wire/piping, scratchbuild exhaust shrouds, header tank, air compressor etc... Bomb bay interior with 'scratched' bomb attachment crates... Paintwork is done with AK Interactive RAF Daylight Fighters set, Ammo of MIG British Cockpit Colors, washes and oil weathering... Kit decals were used together with stencils from Profimodeller and some homemade markings printed on decal paper. Thanks for watching! Regards: Kent
  12. Mosquito FB.VI Engines (632090 for Tamiya) 1:32 Eduard Big Sin Tamiya's big Mossie is an awesome kit, and these new resin engines should take that awesomeness up a notch, as Eduard's use of 3D printing technology is by now legendary, as is their casting skill which IMHO is second to none. This set arrives in a large flat box due to scale and contents, and has a weighty feel that gives a clue to what's inside. Underneath the large instruction booklet and a layer of bubble wrap are nine bags of resin parts, and one containing two frets of Photo-Etch (PE), with a grand total of 180 resin parts!!!! Some of them are tiny, but there are a substantial number of large parts, and the work that has gone into the design and casting must have been phenomenal. Before you start you will need some lengths of wire of 0.3mm, 0.4mm, 0.5mm, 0.8mm and 1mm diameters to be able to do this set justice, so pick up either some lead fly-tying wire from an angling shop, or florist's wire and follow the instructions carefully. There are 21 steps in all, beginning with the cylinder heads and blocks with their electrical connections to the spark plugs, followed by the supercharger and ancillary equipment that sits on one end of the engines. The engine's crankcase is then built up with its own ancillary equipment, and the piston banks are added into keyed recesses, as are the supercharger to the rear and the reduction gear housing at the front. Between the two banks of 6 pistons form a V-shape at the top of the engine, and the supercharger feed-tubes run along the space between them feeding the engine with lots of compressed air, along with another bank of spark-plugs (2 per cylinder in total), which are fed by PE wires. With main engine construction completed, attention turns toward mountings and connections to the rest of the airframe. This begins with the engine bearings being constructed along with some additional equipment that is attached now for ease. The cowlings need a little preparation to remove the casting flash across the exhaust ports on the engine sides, which are simple to cut free and are marked in red on the instructions. These are added to the sides of the engine, a bulkhead is built up from a number of parts, additional wiring, hoses and equipment are added all around, including a curved reservoir around the reduction housing, and the propeller shaft is installed at the business end of the engine with a couple of PE parts and another resin part finishing off that area. The lower cowling is then constructed with the chin intake and a PE mesh preventing FOD ingress. The corresponding intake is attached to the underside of the engine, and various additional coolant hoses, actuator rods, wires and the automatic fire extinguisher are glued in place while the engine is inverted. The exhausts are supplied as two types, with the two rear stubs conjoined on the inboard bank of pistons, and an optional surround that slips over the stubs before they are attached to the block. More wire is added, as is the disc in front of the reduction gear, additional struts forming part of the engine bearers, more hoses etc. Then you get to do it all again with the other engine, with some of the parts mirrored, but many identical to the opposite side, as the basic engines were the same. Conclusion Wow! It's not often that I'm blown away by an aftermarket set, but the attention to detail, the sheer clarity and amount of said detail as well as the quantity of parts is breathtaking. Sure it's an expensive set, and it will keep you busy with the glue and paint for a LOOONG time, but the results have the potential for perfection, if only there was a perfect modeller! Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  13. 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
  14. It seems that around 1927 De Havilland introduced the scheme commonly seen on DH 60 Moths (eg G-AAAA): colour curves around the nose and extends back along the top combing to the tail. Such as here: http://aviationancestry.co.uk/?advert/&advertId=7716 And here: This scheme pattern was also used on a number of other DH civil aircraft of the time: eg DH 61 Giant Moth (G-CAJT and G-AAAN) and the DH 71 G-EBQU...a perusal of the pages of Flight around this time to see Type Reports on DH aircraft with this scheme. Can anyone tell me if De Havilland had particular colour/s they used on their aircraft? Juanita

  16. Greetings fellow modellers, I'd like to share the results of the first of several 1:72 Vampire builds. I'll be sharing the others when they're completed. I posted a short Work in Progress here on how I did the lowered flaps and brakes. There's not a lot about the kit I can tell that's not already said multiple times. I think it's a nice kit - I found the build fairly relaxing and didn't get many surprises in regards to fit and such. The kit is quite accurate, though in my opinion suffers from rather deep and wide engraved panel lines. The kit was built OOB except for Pavla main wheels and Albion Alloy tubing for the pitot tube. The decals were sourced from all kinds of places - the kit decal sheet, the Xtradecal Foreign Operator sheet, an Xtradecal sheet for Lightning F.3s and some other tiny bits (like a small yellow arrow pointing at the windscreen) from whatever I could find. I built the Vampire up as a T.11 in later Rodesian service. It says 'T.55' in my work in progress, as I'd initially planned to do one of the ex-SAAF Vampires acquired from South Africa in 1972 to beef up the aging fleet, but I decided to go for an 'original' instead for reasons that frankly now escape me. The T.11s like the model depicts were delivered in 1955 and as far as I'm aware came relatively fresh from the factory. This example is finished in the last colours it flew in before written off on September 1973, namely in early Bush War camouflage and Rhodesian republic markings. The T.11s wore no national markings on the wings; boom roundels and fin flashes only. I threw some weathering at it to simulate the effects of a warm climate and hot sun beating down on the wing surfaces. Two-seat Vampires were often waxed in Rhodesia, so I tried to replicate that too - the aircraft looked very glossy at times, though for the scale effect I tried to tone that down towards a satin sheen. Hope you like. Jay
  17. Hi, Last year, very soon after I'd started three Gnats (which have been completed - seen here and here), I thought to speed things along by starting another three - Vampires this time. Of course things seldom work out exactly as planned, and now, some time later, I've decided it's for the best to leave the production line workflow for what it is and build no more than two models at the same time. I have now caught up the Vampire build, leave one for later, and concentrate on two; the first a Swiss T.55, and the other a Rhodesian T.35. Construction wasn't anything special - I added bits and bobs to enliven the cockpit somewhat - but the real challenge came recently when starting on the wings. I had planned from the outset to lower the flaps. Upon closer inspection, I came to the conclusion that adding extended wing spoilers I thought I'd share the progress from that moment onwards. Firstly I cut out the flap and spoiler area from the wing (inboard flap was cut out previously) CIMG0228 CIMG0230 Some plasticard CIMG0231 Cut to fit CIMG0232 Glued and used Gunze Mr dissolved putty as filler... CIMG0225 ...then sanded, used Surfacer 1000, sanded again, again a bit of Surfacer, sanding, et voilá. CIMG0238 Now for the wing spoilers. I got out a strip of fairly thick Evergreen and sanded one side into an edge. CIMG0241 glued another bit to it - this process speaks for itself I believe: IMG_1255 Evergreen plastic paper-like sheet: IMG_1258 IMG_1264 Finally I sanded the spoiler into the appropriate shape and then I glued the thin sheet around it with Tamiya Cement. (Revell contacta, another glue I use often, is far too aggressive for thin plastic.) IMG_1262 IMG_1265 To be continued. Thanks for looking Jay
  18. '...and every where the blue sky belongs to them' Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Gloss to the Rime of the Ancient Mariner. 'Invert the aircraft, release harnesses and fall out' Emergency handling procedure from Sea Venom Pilot's Notes. Hello again all, The madness is upon me again! It's been a while since I posted anything visual, largely as I've had no real bench time at all of late, but after faffing around I've decided to do a sequence of related builds for the next year or so of various Fleet Air Arm aircraft from the 50s and 60s. Some classic jets and choppers from that era, that a recent visit to Yeovilton has rekindled my affection for. Here's some bench shots of the Frog 1:72 Sea Venom FAW.21 that will be the first in the series. Let's start with the good news: the decals seems usable and in good condition. Aaaaaaaand that's it for the good news... This splendid-looking aircraft has been subject of a number of builds already on BM, and whilst I love these older kits like Frog, can you see all that blasted flash? It looks more like a Frank Auerbach painting of a kit with all that baroque plasticity. Have a closer look and you'll see what I mean: As to the glazing I'm thinking this was originally intended as an insect eye rather than a canopy. Have I been given part of the old Airfix Praying Mantis kit in error? Pity the poor crew of this thing though; the moulding guys really went for a lovely 'Facehugger from Alien' approach - I'll have to call this crate 'Nostromo' now: Seriously. Did this kit partially melt in the post on the way over due to the recent heatwave or something??? Actually, I have my suspicions that as this was bought unboxed (and hence dirt cheap), it may not be an original Frog moulding as advertised but a later iteration - was the original mould of this kit ever this flashy BITD? S-oo..after having foresworn kits that need lots of correction (after my previous Dark Night of the Matchbox Meteor Night Fighter) here I am back with another kit needing as much attention probably. Of course I'm moaning too much. It's my own fault for buying it and I could always throw it away and buy a decent version. But you know I won't. I've got etch. 1/72 etch.... That will make it all better, won't it? I've some yet to do on colour and airframe details, but the notion at this stage is to to just go the whole hog, wingfolds and all, and see how we get on. BTW I noticed that Falcon do a really nice FAA vacform canopy set that included most of the aircraft I hope to do in this series, as well as that snazzy Model Alliance decal set for the Ark Royal air wing that also covers many of them, so I may have to break my embargo on any more purchases this month. bank manager... It's going to be a busy summer work-wise; I'll have to grab time at the bench as and when I can get it so my updates may not be as regular as I would hope. The main thing is that I hope you get to enjoy the journey and please pitch in as often as you want with any criticism and advice of my attempts to subdue this monster Tony

  20. Hello and welcome to my Honey I shrunk the De Havilland Vampire T.11, 1/72 The Gentleman's scale,RFI. I fell in love with this little fella while watching Phil’s build a few moths Months back , I simply had to build one, it had everything I wanted, a nice easy looking build with Silver and fluorescent paint. This would be my first time with both. The kit went together really well and The only additions were some Eduard belts and some scratch handles for the ejector seats, oh and a few little aerials here and there. It was a blast to build and I can highly recommend if you're looking for a fun little stop gap in between larger projects this is it. Thanks to everyone who helped and watched the WIP along the way. (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235004740-honey-i-shrunk-the-de-havilland-vampire-t11-172-the-gentlemans-scale/) I couldn’t have done it without you. , Most of the photos were taken this weekend as the sun was glorious giving a really nice light through our little sky light. I must have been having fun as I too nearly ninety pictures. I have whittled em down but there are still quite a few, I was playing with filters and the like. I hope you enjoy this RFI and if you're interested I have started a long haul project here. (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235005731-massive-and-old-its-only-a-ruddy-grumman-ea-6b-prowler-148-by-airfix/) An old school Airfix prowler, It's a doosie. Any hoo enough of my jibber jabber here are the pics. Enjoy. There you go then. Onece again thank you for indulging me on this one. Have a lovely day and hopefully I'll share some chit chat on my next build. All the best, thanks for your time and as always. Happy Modelling. Johnny boy.
  21. de Havilland Aircraft Museum

    The de Havilland Aircraft Museum, which is sometimes know as the Mosquito Museum. This is just inside the M25 north of London and in an ideal location for a double visit with RAF Hendon. Dedicated to de Havilland aircraft, where else can you see three mosquito aircraft in the same location? They have the Prototype Aircraft, with a Bomber type aircraft, and a gun nosed fighter one as well.
