  1. Time for a relaxing build (famous last words, again!). I've had this image on my desktop for some time: JuniorsBeerRun by Ced Bufton, on Flickr Probably a painting but WHAT an image*. I'm using the Eduard kit for this with the Brengun resin set (BRL72063) from Hannants here. The conversion comes with the barrels, racks and fuel tank (I'll use the kit one as it's better detailed), PE for the straps and transfers for MK329 and MH978. MK329 is Johnny Johnson's so an obvious choice - I'm nothing if not predictable. Some good references on the Spitfire Site There's also a clip of the first eight minutes or so of Johnny on 'This is Your Life' here. Off to watch that... Oh, I've put some H10 brown on the barrels as 'pre-shading' base coat: More later * Originally found on in this thread on the PPRune forum it has sadly been hit by the Photobucket ransom and I can't find the original... apologies if I'm infringing anyone's copyright (let me know if so and I'll take it down).
  2. Hello guys, here is my latest finished kit - Eduard´s nice Fokker Dr.I 1/48. The kit was built as a birthday gift As usualy there was at least a bit of scratchbuilding, even though most of it is not visible on the finished kit - removed internal structure on the cockpit sides, made new one from evergreen stripss - added details to the cockpit floor - completely reworked bulk behind the seat - the seat holders were left from the original part, rest is home made from evergreen strips and tabs - created new fuel tank to the front section - thinned the front fuselage top part - added padding around the cockpit from lead wire and rubber band from cable - added details to the machine guns - added details and wires to the engine Sadly one of the machine guns got broken before the photos were taken and carpet monster swallowed the tail struts and there was no time to make new one.. And finished model here I m not happy with the propeller both back and front side were made by same process, but on the front side, the differences between dark and light wood almost disapeared Well, thats it for now thanks a lot for looking and have a great day guys
  3. Mirage 2000P 1/48

    Hi everybody, After much anger over my photobucket account, I finally decided to actively participate again on BM. I therefor opened a flickr account hope that will master flickr soon, and that we do not have similar problems with them in due course! very frustrating!! So, although modeling time is at a premium at the moment (kids, kids, kids, kids, and work) and I really want to finish my F-111C and MiG-25 soonest!!! I also promised to take part in this GB here... late entry, hopefully a not too challenging, but still interesting enough kit and topic! ESCI Mirage 2000 C kit (updated version with the correct, production fin) FCM decals Neomega resin cockpit Eduard PE and masks maybe more in the future will be started as soon as possible! anything to watch out for on this kit?
  4. Hot on the heels of the Hurricanes, I decided that the next build would be a Hellcat. Me being me though, I couldn't decide which one. Then I thought, why not do all of them! The F6F-3 has progressed the furthest and the fuselage will be closed up tonight. The other 2 have had the basic interior green applied. All of them have had the cowlings and wings built up so far. Sean
  5. So, after some late decision on joining in , and after all the necessary content has arrived today, I am ready to present my share for this GB! sorry for those who think we have enough C models already but, that is the one it will be! no chance of finishing the F model also in the stash with Paragon wings imho..... maybe large model STGBs should be extended a bit F-111C Aardvark RAAF Academy 1/48 -Cutting Edge seamless Tripple Plow I intakes - Eduard seatbelts - Eduard detail for the nozzle shrouds (for the HB kit actually) - Montex masks - Academy BRU rack with Mk-82 bombs (from the E model kit I just recieved for this purpose.... ) the obligatory contents shot and all spread out! quite a lot of plastic to be used within the next 2 months and a bit! the upgraded Academy C model Aardvark is quite good, especially the Cartograf printed decals (if you want to build a grey one that is ... ) soon some plastic to be cut! still thinking of doing something to the nozzles themselves... but not sure yet if I really should invest more on this...Ozmods nozzles and better detailed BRU racks with bombs would amount to some 40- 50€ shipped from Down Under..... and questionable if they would arrive in time.... undecided on the decals yet
  6. Hello guys; This is my latest build: an Eduard Emil 1/32. It is a honest kit with good assembly. I used this followings adds: - Eduard Brassin Engine Set; - Eduard Brassin MG 17 Mount; - Eduard Brassin Wheels - Aires interior resin set; - Kagero and kit decals; - RB Productions belts and; - Master Barrels (MG17). I used a mix Tamiya paints. The version chose is a Black 10 JG27, Libya 1941. This aircraft was painting with a desert camuflage, probably Italian paints. I had dificult in use Eduard Brassin Engine set. I don't understand, but the engine fittings is very bad. I spent three months in this job. All steps are posted in this Brazilian group building forum: http://webkits.hoop.la/topic/gb-08-bf109e-7-trop-eduard-1-32?page=1 Thanks for watching! Cheers!
  7. A 1/48 scale Eduard's rendition of the Airfix E.E. Lightning. Both Airfix and the Eduard kit 1134 can also be made as a F.3. Since the Eduard kit has greyish PE for the cockpit you better build a F.3. Also the lack of good panels for any Aden gun tipped the scale towards a F.3. Together with Cutting Edge decals 48076, Dmold intake ring, Q-M-T wheels and a Master-in-Miniature pitot tube resulted in this. Some different Alclad2 and Mr. Color paints, which were a closer matched red with the decals than the Mr.Paint version. If you build this kit, beware of the cable ducts being in the wrong position. They should be some 1,5 cm more aft than instructed. I got it wrong and discovered it too late.
  8. Hi All, My plan for this Group Build is to use the 1/144 Eduard MiG-21MF Dual Combo kit and display a pair of Polish 21s over their home base of Lask: Not sure yet exactly which era or livery to set the models in but will probably build one of the pair in the two tone grey low viz camouflage as per kit instructions (circa 2002). Planning to glue an extract from Google maps onto a base and then use Perspex rod to depict the planes in flight. Regards Mike
  9. Hello BMérs I built this one earlier this year as a review for "The Modelling News". I hope it's ok to share some pics of the finished product here as well. This is the Eduard 1/48 Limited Edition release. I added even more Brassin goodies from the separate Harrier update set ( Terma Pod, Sniper pod, resin exhausts). Paveway IV UK bombs from L'arsenal and decals for ZD404 Lucy from the Model Alliance War on Terror sheet. Resin FOD gaurds from Steel Beach and a few other bits and bobs. Thanks for looking. Andrew P.
  10. My poor poor winterized Harrier hit a big snag recently, so much in fact that Ii put it back in the box for a while. To cheer me up a little, I decided to have a deeper look into my Christmas gift: 31 different decal options, but only 2 complete set of kits. I really hope that Eduard will offer more Overtrees soon! First, I thought that I should do one of the Grey Nurses, since I do have a thing for Sharkmouths... And I definitely want to do a brown/green one, and a desert one with the blue/light blue roundels and one green one with bomb racks... So, instead of botching Bobby Gibbes rather spiffy looking machines I decided to start with this to learn how to build an Eduard Spitfire. Pictures to follow! //Christer
  11. Good night to all! here the last birth directly from my workbench... an israeli Mirage III CJ! Base kit is the Eduard, but I used the resin set for cockpit and wheel bays from SBM. Other details are from Eduard photoetched set, pitot from Master. For the natural metal finish I used the Aclad Lacquers and Mr.Paint semi gloss for the final coat. The decals are a mix from the kit and Isradecal set. Hope you'll enjoy. Cheers from Rome, Italy!

  12. Eduard Fokker E.II

    I will join if I may. I have a couple of kits in the stash that qualify and having done some research I now know the difference between a rotary and a radial engine (yes I admit it I didn't know before but you live and learn). I am going to build the Eduard 1/48 WWI Fokker E.II. I should point out (a) I have never built a WWI plane before, (b) I have never done rigging on a plane before and (c) this looks quite fiddly. Fingers crossed. The kit. I understand its one of Eduard's older offerings but hopefully that doesn't mean problems. I will be building it OTB and have some E Z Line to try out for the rigging. The sprues. So far so good. And finally some photo etch and a very very small clear sprue. Thanks for looking. As always all comments very welcome. Cheers Dave

  14. Well I’m first cab off the rank of this build, only because I though it was to start last weekend! Had all the photos and stuff ready as well. For this GB I wanted something nice and simple, I had the Eduard 2000C in the stash so all I needed was a new colour scheme as I didn’t fancy the ones supplied. The model is quite simple and really old, it started life in 1992 when it was released by Heller…..and it shows it! The panel detailing is quite nice but some of the other stuff! There are some nice extras with the model, some I’ll use some I won’t. So I plan to throw away the old cockpit and fit a new cockpit Wolfpack one. Plus a few other bits, at the stage I bought the wheels I had planned to build her with wheels down but have since decided to do her in flight. So the wheels are available to anyone who wants them. These doors are part of the reason why I didn’t want to build her wheels down! I’ll either rebuild these or replace them. I’ll probably have to replace them as their shape doesn’t match the door opening at all! Ok finally the colour scheme, well she will be rather bright! Not quite the simple scheme I had planned, but at least it’s all decals this time so that should help. It’s actually going to be part of a bigger theme of builds I’m planning. I want to build up a set of Tiger Meet aircraft, I have the 2015 Polish F-16CJ, I’ve got a 2010 Czech Gripen (about 1/3rd finished) already. So in future GB’s I’ll start to add more. As mentioned this will be do as an in-flight model, I have Leon already for the cockpit. With the new control surfaces I’ll try an give her an action look. That said I did make one really scary discovery when I was laying out the new control surfaces on the kit ones. After looking at some scale drawings it appears that the kit has some issues with the angle of the leading edge its control surfaces! I’ll know more once I start cutting things up….. and this was to be a simple build! Leon has since run away!

  16. With the hawk awaiting a full bottle of primer to arrive, and a week of annual leave in hand, it's time to get a second aircraft onto the bench. The Hawk was an OOB build to get me by, but this Harrier has a few extras to test me and so I can learn a few things as I go. I've gone with the Eduard rebox of what I believe is the Hasegawa Harrier. I've picked up some Brassin and Eduard accessories as you can see, They include a THERMA poem Sniper ATP, UK RBF tags and a step ladder. Although I'm left wondering if the UK use(d) ladders like this? The set comes with Cartograf decals for the following 6 designs: As well as the standard array of sprues: It also comes with a correct resin seat, to frames of photo-etch parts (one in full colour), new wheels and a sheet of pre cut masks. Cheers James
  17. Hi guys, as said in the chat thread picked this up at tank fest for a pretty penny. Not sure which one I'm going to make so many choices!! Only planning on making the one but time will tell... While my other build, Zulu, is in dry dock at the moment and the 109 nearly done I'm going to turn my hand to this and see how well I can butcher it Joss
  18. My entry will be Eduard's Weekend Edition 1/48 Mirage IIIC. Won't be starting for a while, as I still have to finish a couple of other ongoing group build entries, a MIG-21R and Mk2 Transit.
  19. Hi guys, here is my latest build, the Eduard Macchi MC 202. It is the Hasegawa kit with Eduard goodies. i've added the brassin engine bay. This build will appear in a future issue of the french magazine Wingmasters. Cheers, Manu.
  20. F-8E Crusader Update sets - For Eduard/Hasegawa 1:48 Eduard Update Set (48925) This is one brass fret which includes parts for the engine burner can, missile & Zuni rails, front canopy, landing gear legs, front undercarriage bay, landing gear doors, skin strengthening plates and the bay under the main wing. Air Intakes (648301) This set from the brassin range provides two new resin intake scoops for the afterburner cooling on the rear of the Crusader. PE Mounting plates are provided for these. Exhaust Set (648302) If you dont want to go the photo etch route of the update set, or you want some more detail then this set provides a new resin exhaust, burner ring, and fan. Conclusion These sets will enhance an already impressive model. Recommended. Review samples courtesy of
  21. Spitfire Mk.XVI Cowling (648307 for Eduard) 1:48 Eduard Brassin Eduard's new 1:48 Spitfires are excellent kits, but the limitations of injection moulding mean that their top cowlings have to be made from two halves due to the bulges over the exhaust stacks that are so characteristic of any Spit, whether it's Merlin equipped or Griffon powered. Eduard have created a series of resin replacements for those that it bothers, either because they dislike filling seams, are worried that the seam may reappear as they sometimes do, or just want to save a little time. As usual with Eduard's resin sets, they arrive in the familiar Brassin clamshell box, with the resin parts safely cocooned on dark grey foam inserts, and the instructions sandwiched between the two halves, doubling as the header card. There is only one part in the box, with the moulding block attached at the front end, with protective bars running along the sides, and flash between them and the cowling. Cleanup will be the work of moments, as the front of the cowling is hidden by the prop, and you've got no work to do that might jeopardise all that delicate detail. Review sample courtesy of
  22. This is a kit I have always wanted to build. I am the lucky owner of the Airfix twin kit so I wanted to be able to show this amazing airtcraft as best I could. I have decided to depict an aircraft from 208Sqn whilst it was on the Red Flag exercises in the 1970's The Buccaneers had never been seen by the Americans and during the exercise the RAF re-defined to the hosts what low level flying was. Ity was a superlative display of low level fast flying. Not one Buccaneer was intercepted! The kit has its issues, but forms a superb basis for super detailing, so here it goes! I wanted to show an Engine and the bomb bay, all my efforts are from refrence photos and are built by the eye, not plans, so it wont be 100% accurate. The photo etch is from Flightpath.
  23. Another Mig-21R. This will be Eduard's 1/48 Weekend Edition. No etch, but kit does include 'superfabric' seatbelts. Also using BarracudaCast replacement radome, Eduard masks. Like Dave_R I will also be doing the Cuban AF scheme. It was the scheme that drove me to this kit, More and more I am finding that it is the scheme that attracts my attention and is the my major driver in building a kit as opposed to the actual aircraft itself..
  24. Hello all, Having just returned from a brief trip to Croatia (lovely country!), I would like to enter another Mig-21, this time a 'modernised' BIS, of the Croatian Air Force. Kit: Extras: Not much on this one - resin seat and decals is about it! This is what i'm going for - Mig-21 Will make a start soon after i've started the Mig-29. Dave
  25. Hello all, Here is my recently finished 1/48 Eduard Mig-21BIS in the markings of the Croatian Air Force. The build thread is here Extras used included a CMK resin seat and Model Maker decals. A note on these; they are awful. The shade of the grey is completely wrong and a lot of the decals broke up and did not fit to the model. I added some grey dry brushing to the check pattern on the tail and wings to try and darken it down, which it has done a bit, but it's not perfect and i'm not overly pleased with it. But it'll have to do. Beside my other Eduard Mig-21: Thanks for looking. Dave
