  1. 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.
  2. Hello guys; This is my latest build: an Eduard F-2 1/48. It was out of box. I used Kagero decals: Bf 109 F-2; 'White 9', flown by Oblt. Hans Phillip, Staffelkapitän of 4./JG 54, Mal. Owsischtschi, 10 August 1941. Paints: Tamiya and Gunze acrylic paints. Thanks for watching!
  3. Sukhoi Su-34 Fullback BigEd set (BIG49175 for Hobby Boss) 1:48 Eduard Hobby Boss's Fullback has been a huge success, despite it having a few flaws, and Eduard has released a number of Photo-Etch sets to improve on the detail, all of which have been available separately now for a few months. If you haven't yet dipped your toe into acquiring aftermarket for your kit and were planning on getting all sets however, then this BigEd set will be of interest. It includes four sets and places them in one card envelope, passing on a discount on the price for the modeller as a result. On first look the ticket price might look large, but when you add the individual prices together, you do win out and save around 25%. The envelope is sturdy and well able to keep your Photo-Etch (PE) safe from harm, with a taped up flap which is re-sealable using a punched-out tongue and slot. Interior (49824) Two small frets are included, one nickel plated and pre-painted, the other in bare brass. A complete set of new layered instrument panels and side consoles are the primary parts on the painted set, with new rudder pedals; ejection seat details; throttle quadrant; HUD framework with acetate film glazing; rear-view periscope and canopy internal structure also supplied. Oddly, a number of external parts are added, such as a number of sensors and AoA probe in the nose; static wicks on the wings and tail, and chaff and flare racks in the stinger between the engine exhausts. Seatbelts STEEL (49825) In case you don't already know, these belts are Photo-Etch (PE) steel, and because of their strength they can be etched from thinner material, which improves realism and flexibility in one sitting. Coupled with the new painting method that adds perceived extra depth to the buckles and other furniture by shading, they are more realistic looking and will drape better than regular brass PE. As well as the belts and cushion pads, you also get a set of pull-handles between the pilot's knees that gets him out of there in case of an emergency. Exterior (48921) This larger bare brass set contains some important upgrades, such as delicate new afterburner rings, with concise instructions on how to achieve the correct shape with them; a replacement to the rear face of the engine that slots over the bullet fairing in the centre; a substantial upgrade to the detail in the highly visible nose gear bay that also acts as crew access, with the ladder also getting new treads and the mudguard being fitted with a new flexible rubber section (in brass of course). Finally, the intake inner walls are skinned with more detailed panels, which will need blending in with the styrene at the edges for a more realistic look. Masks (EX550) Supplied on a sheet of yellow kabuki tape, these pre-cut masks supply you with a full set of masks for the canopy, which are solid masks for each pane. In addition you get a set of ancillary masks for the sundry lights, allowing you to paint your model with little concern for them. Review sample courtesy of

  5. 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?
  6. 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
  7. Hi all, First post in a wee while! Here's what I've been working on - the 1/72 Hasegawa SBD-5 Dauntless with markings courtesy of the old Aeromaster "Royal New Zealand Air Force in WW2" sheet. I've also used the Eduard etch set for the divebrakes - definately NOT designed to be mounted closed!! Hence it looks a bit ropey around the trailing edge of the wing. Hopefully the pics will show up as this is the first time I've used Photobucket! Preferred Imageshack, but they've gone pay only.... Mike.

  11. Here is another of my occasional 1/48 builds, the Eduard Messerschmitt Bf109G6. A lot has been posted online about the accuracy of this kit and building it alongside 2 other 109s the difference in size is instantly apparent. As a 109 fan I was rather disappointed initially but once I started building that disappointment all but vanished as the kit is a delight to build with superb detail inside and on the surface so it's portliness is forgiven on this occasion. Other than sand off the strange bumps at the wing root everything else is OOB including the strange undercarriage leg angle. I painted this one as Major Franzisket's aircraft as the other decal options all have some issues, several were ERLA built G6s so should have had the extra cowl bulges on the right side but Eduard didn't include them and one of the options colour schemes is actually a mixture of 2 aircraft from different factories. I've gone a bit overboard with the weathering as the photos I've seen showed this aircraft to be very clean, I'll put it down to artist licence. Duncan B

  13. Bf110E

    This was buried in the stash for years until I finally took pity on it and decided to give it a go. It's a nice package with everything you need in the box (p/e, masks), only problem being the fit of the nancelles. Regards J A
  14. Good afternoon gents, Spruebros landed a 190A-4 on my front porch on Friday, so of course I started it. Actually, this is the very first time I've ever done that. Normally a new kit gets explored, but then put into the stash to await a later build date. Some of those "new kits" are actually still in the stash. Not the 190A-4! I started snipping parts from the sprues and built up everything I could that didn't need paint. The new tool 190 kit is a lot of fun. Things fit well and are engineered well. It feels a lot simpler than the Spitfire or 109, but still has plenty to enjoy. What engine!? Ahh... the fit of the wings/fuselage/gun bays!! So nice. Here is what I'm going for: Cockpit without weathering: The PE is not the blue-ish color from other eduard RLM 66 PE sheets, but it's more gray, but still doesn't match my go to RLM 66, Tamiya German Gray. So I painted over the PE to get the colors back. The kit also has nice molded IP and cockpit sills/consoles. I'm going to use those next time instead of PE. I cut a hole in the frame under the cowling so I can add the exhaust stacks in later. Cut away: And once the pit was done, then I just started glueing pieces together! Thanks for looking!
  15. Hello everyone, My name is Ales and this is my very first contribution on this forum. The Britmodeller website is the reason I have started building models again, after 20 years break, and the work that can be found here has been a great inspiration to me, I dare to say The Spitfire model shown below is my ninth model since the comeback. It is from the Eduards limited edition 'Nasi se vraceji' (Boys are coming home) and represents version Mk.IXc, BS461, flown by many pilots from the 222.squadron based in Hornchurch mid 1943. From the book that was a part of the limited edition, the plane appeared to be a quite worn. I have used Airbrush IWATA Neo TRN1, Tamiya acrylic paints, ALCLAD Aqua gloss varnish, Vallejo sating varnish, Abteilung Oil paints and pigments. The photos were taken by an old Canon compact digital camera. Enjoy
  16. Eduard has just announced 1/48th MiG-23MF "Flogger-B" & MiG-3ML "Flogger-G" in Czechoslovak service. New tool? That's the question. Frankly I hardly imagine Eduard reboxing the Trumpeter's MiG-23 kits. But who knows. If they're new tool and from the same barrel as their 1/48th MiG-21 "Fishbed" Source: https://scontent.fbru2-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/22382055_1823842124297393_5421894630712582162_o.png?oh=3b46bbc2e5e4abf84b990a1a4b7b5aba&oe=5A403F00 V.P.
  17. Roland C.II ProfiPACK 1:48 Eduard After initially building Albatros two seaters under licence, the Roland company began to look at producing an aircraft of their own design. A lot of effort went in to creating as smooth and low drag a shape as possible, eliminating the cabane struts by mounting the top wing directly on to the top of the fuselage. The fuselage itself was an innovative monocoque construction of layers of thin plywood strips laid over a mould in a criss-cross pattern. Two halves were made (just like a kit!) and joined together around an interior framework. The join line was covered with tape and the whole unit covered with doped on fabric, creating a fuselage with an excellent strength to weight ratio. Nicknamed 'Walfisch' (Whale) the C.II proved to be significantly faster than most other two seaters, and the majority of single seat fighters. View above and behind was excellent, but downward was poor due to the positioning of the pilot high up near the wings, and made the aircraft difficult to land. The tail assembly also suffered from some lack of airflow due to the blanking effect of the fuselage. However, as long as it held on to it's speed advantage it was able to carry out its reconnaissance tasks in relative safety. The C.II and later C.IIa served from the spring of 1916 until mid 1917, latterly in an escort role or employed on troop support/ground attack. Once removed from front line service most Rolands were only to be found in use with training units. The Kit The kit was initially released in 2000 and re-released at regular intervals ever since so must be a god seller. There are four main sprues of plastic and a small clear sprue, 2 small PE frets and a sheet of masks. Construction starts inside the main fuselage with the main glazing being put in place in each fuselage half, followed by some internal fittings including the spare magazines for the rear gunner. This is followed by the gunners compartment being assembled and installed. Coloured PE seats belts are provided here. Next up the pilots compartments is built up and installed. Engine bearers are then installed in front of the pilots area in preparation for the engine. The engine is the next part to be built up and installed. The engine is a multi-part affair including separate exhausts. Again coloured PE seats belts are provided here. Due to the construction of the Roland not much of this will be visible once the next step of closing the main fuselage halves is complete. After this is done the scarf ring for the gunner is added along with a side mounted radiator for the engine. Construction then moves onto the wings. Unlike most bi-plane models the lower wing is one part which attaches under the main fuselage, and the top wings are split left/right and attach to each side of the fuselage. One large aerodynamic interplane strut holds the wings apart near the tips. Following the adding of the wings the tail planes and rudder are attached. Control cable attachment points are provided for the rudder, and wing ailerons. To finish off the main undercarriage and tail skid are built up and added to the main fuselage. The main fixed forward firing gun is added to the top of the wing, and the rear gun is also added. The main exhaust is added to the engine and lastly the propeller and hub are added to the front of the aircraft. Decals Decals options come for four aircraft and include extra markings for the first option. Decals are from Eduard and look to be in register, glossy and colour dense. They should pose no issues.

  22. Ok so this is my third and final upload this week! I've had three kits all at the same stage since May so am on a concerted effort to get them finished. Eduard 1:48 F8 Crusader, VMF235, 'Deaths Angels' , Da Nang Air Base, Vietnam 1968 Very enjoyable kit this one and the Furball decals were very nice indeed and by and large a good fit although the intake took some doing! This is one of Eduards limited edition kits so has the canopy masks and various Brassin parts to go with it. Paints are Tamiya and Gunze and Alclads for the exhaust. Highly recommended Chris
  23. Time to add another Eagle to the ever growing squadron. I'll be using the 1/48 Eduard "Striking Eagles" limited edition boxing to build Seymour Johnson's 335th FS "Nowhere 2 Hide". Aircraft was started a few years ago but then went back in the box. Apart from joining the two main fuselage halves, the only other work done so far is a start on the cockpit - so I reckon this is well within the 25% rule. The boxing comes with plenty of extras; resin exhausts, resin wheels, resin seats, full interior etch, exterior etch - so I don't intend to add anything else And an easy paint scheme - just add a large pot of FS36118 As I also have the Revell boxing which is at a similar stage, I may have time to build another of the "Never Forget" nose art aircraft.
  24. We've had loads of cheap kits delivered today to add to our huge pile of cheap kits! We are struggling to fit things on the shelves they are so full! We had in today the following 1/48 kits Meng F-35A Lightning II, the Hobby Boss Saab Lansen and Ka-27 Helix.

We now have all the Bf109F and early G Profipacks on offer right now, plus loads more! If you are a 1/48 Bf109 fan, you really need to check out our website now! All the offers are listed on the homepage at http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk . All orders between now and early Monday afternoon will be posted on Monday, there's worldwide post, VAT free shopping for non EU customers and local customer can collect their orders and save on the postage! Don't forget the Avant Garde (AMK) 1/48 MiG-31 kits are in stock now too!
  25. Started last November and finally completed today! Airfix's new-tool Blenheim Mk I completed OOB, the only aftermarket used being Eduard's canopy mask for the kit. It's brush painted with Humbrol enamels (H29 and H116 uppers, H85 lower surface with H78 used for the interior), then glossed with Humbrol's Clear for decal application and finally matt coated with a Humbrol Rattlecan. There's also some light weathering as well, using various colours of paint. All in all, not that difficult to build, you just need to take your time and test fit prior to gluing anything. The nose glazing was fiddly, but not insurmountable if you put some thought into how your going to do it. I did have to resort to a touch of filler in that area. My only real complaint is the Eduard set - some of the window masks are a little too large compared with the detail as moulded by Airfix. Comments and feedback welcome! Mike.
