  1. NEW

    Hi, with help from Mike, the other mods and the review team I have been working on getting a walkaround section here on Britmodeller. This will hopefully contain the sort of detail shots only modellers need. ie the left handed widget on the Blackburn Wurlitzer etc. We are aiming for Aircraft, helicopters, Tanks, Softskins, airliners, Ships, Subs, Weapons, Ejection seats, ground equipment. Basically anything of interest to the modeller. Guys & gals this section will only be as good as the info we can get and post up. If you would like to contribute then please let me know. many thanks Julien
  2. It has been recognised by the moderation team that there was no dedicated Figure Modelling section on here, but with the growth of posts in this area over recent times, we have now decided to add a dedicated area for figure modellers to engage in discussion, post your Work In Progress (WIP), and Ready For Inspection (RFI) builds.
  3. Airfix's 4th(?) foray into blue-nosed Mustangs. I'm sure we're all familiar with the plastic, so here's the new bits: Box art: Painting guide: Cartograf decal sheet:

    Some of you may have noticed that we've got a new tab at the top of the forum, entitles Calendar You'll never guess what's in there... well, maybe you will if you know the word "calendar" in English. As well as the usual Group Build Calendars, we've added a couple of new ones for Model Shows and Military Shows/Airshows, which might help you deciding what do do with some of your weekend free-time once the show season begins. Panzer Vor!!! or Dave W as we call him is looking after them for us, so if you have any events that you notice aren't yet added to the 2017 calendar, just let Dave know and if you supply him with the info, he'll add your event in. As you can probably guess, the Modelling calendar is for model shows only, and the other one is for all sorts of military events from air shows to military vehicle shows. You can look at a particular calendar individually or quickly flip between them so you can see which events clash and make a decision on which one you would prefer to go to. Where we can we're adding prices, contact details, website details and the location for your Satnav too, which is able assisted by the Google Maps plug-in, showing you a small map of where the event is taking place. It's all good, useful stuff, but it's early days for the facility, so it's bound to need a little tweaking before it hits its stride, so please bear with us. Any suggestions for improvements can be directed to Dave, but if you can copy me in too, that would be useful as I do all the mucking about with the software settings Finally, if you're an iCalendar user, you can download the calendar to your device for your own use, or just subscribe to a feed, which will (I presume) keep you updated with new events as they are added. The same is of course true of the GB calendar, if you're a hard-core GB participant and want to keep updated. In't technology brilliant?
  5. Well, we did it. We upgraded, and apart from a little hiccup that took support a few minutes to deal with, it went pretty smoothly. I could have just switched the forums back on last night at around 9pm BST, but I decided to let the forum rebuild all the indexes so that Streams (new custom searches you can save) and searches worked better, but as we're still only a quarter of the way through some ridiculous figure with commas everywhere (something like 2.4m???) I got lonely and decided to put the board back online. We'll have some glitches to sort out, and we'll be adding new things here & there, some of which will be costing money but we're going to go at it slowly and surely, to make sure we get it right. Further down the line we're considering a tweak to the logo, a new colour scheme that comes with some fancy new features include a sliding menu so you don't have to scroll to the top to use it, and a new home page that is self-updating with the latest reviews, content and so forth. In the meantime however, we're going to get the basics right. The main priority is to get everyone up to speed with the software and able to post without freaking out like happened last time to one or two people. I've already posted some How-To FAQs in the FAQ section (no surprise there!), so have a read, especially if you're wondering where the little Polaroid picture of the tree went. From a member's point of view the View New Content (VNC) button will be a bit iffy until we're back in the swing of things, so if you can't find any new content, but know where you want to look, go to the forum from the Home menu, and snuffle about in the forum you were thinking of to find it. once you've posted in that topic, it'll show up on the VNC list, and you won't have to go searching. You can also check back on the "My Content" menu that pops up when you click on your User Name at the top right of the forum. Have an explore and familiarise yourself with the new layout, and rest easy knowing that there isn't much that you can do that we can't undo for you Enhance your calm, dive in, and before too long you'll wonder what you were worried about. incidentally, if you're looking at the VNC listing and it looks a bit spaced out, just click the "Condensed" button at the top right of its box, and it will trim some space away for you.
  6. Evening all, There's plenty of folk who've been ahead of me with this so will spare on the details. Just wanted to share my rendition of the new tool 1/48 Spitfire Mk.Vb, built straight out of the box with the markings for the restored aircraft from the Historic Aircraft Collection at Duxford. As its a restored aircraft I've applied almost no weathering as all the pics I've looked at seem to show the aircraft being kept in a very clean condition. Only thing the eagle-eyed among you will notice is I'm missing the rear view mirror.....blame the carpet monster! Will be fabricating a replacement. My only gripe.....that undercarriage attachment....aaaarrggh! Horrible. And yes, young Nigel does have a moustache!! All comments, suggestions etc gratefully received, good and bad, it all helps. Rgds, Eng
  7. The new Avro Shackleton in 1/72 scale from Airfix is back in stock at Wonderland Models! If you missed out the first time round, now is your chance to grab this fantastic and popular model kit.
  8. Hey everyone! I'm Timothy from Singapore and I'm new to all this! I'm a fan of modern military aircraft. Hope to learn loads from everyone here! Here's a WIP pic of my latest and third build! 1/72 Academy F-18A+ "Red Devils", awesome kit!

  10. Good evening, I am a retired police officer and in a previous life i spent 15 years with the Royal Artillery. I am interested in modelling mainly in 1/48 Aircraft, as well as warships and vehicles. While i am on, a quick question if i may. I have taken delivery of the Dragon 1/35 Conquerer MK2. At the time that this vehicle was in service the general colour of Army vehicles was a gloss dark green. Does anyone now what it is called and which model companies stock or produce the colour? Regards Graham
  11. Evening, Another one now clear of the bench! This is Airfix latest incarnation of the Harrier GR.3, a lovely kit with the only flaw being the fin is slightly too short. There is a resin drop-in replacement now available to correct this, however on my build there's a bit of a tale of woe here! As soon as I bought this I couldnt wait to start it, and decided straight away to cut the fin and extend it with sheet plasticard myself (no resin available at this point). All went well, the fin was corrected using a 1/72 scale drawing, and progress continued apace until I was about to start decalling. When I looked at the paint guide again I realised what the niggling issue was that had been at the back of my mind since the fin surgery........I'd cut out the fwd RWR antenna and hadn't put it back in! Arrrggh.... I ended up taking the fin out of another Airfix GR.3 (yes I bought more than one, and by now had a replacement resin fin!), carefully cutting out the RWR along the panel line and splicing this into a notch cut in my now painted build. Fortunately I managed to minimise the damage to paintwork and a quick re-spray of the top of the fin put me back on track. Anyway her she is out of the box, including the decals, apart from a LGB and a 1000lb bomb from the Revell Tornado GR.1, to liven up the warlord - Please feel free to leave comments or suggestions, good and bad. Thanks for looking. Rgds, Eng
  12. Combo Pigment & Colour Sets Lifecolor Lifecolor are well known for their acrylic paint sets which provide all the colours you'll need for the subject covered. Well time moves on, and with new techniques coming to the fore, they have begun creating combination sets that contaion both the colours you'll need to paint the subject, and the pigments that you will need to complete the job. The first release of three sets is detailed below, and the new pigments have the prefix PG for ease of discrimination: Israeli Army This set is perfectly timed to coincide with all those Merkava kits that are coming out at present. It contains three base colours and three pigments as follows: Golan Dark Earth (PG101), Sinai Sand (PG101), Lebanon Dust (PG103), IDF Sandgrey 1 (UA901), IDF Sandgrey 2 (UA902), UDF Green (UA903) Tracks Painting and weathering realistic tracks can be a difficult task, but this set contains three base colours to paint your tracks, and three pigments to weather them up after. The addition of the Rubber colour is especially welcome, as it is a very nice brown grey that gives a good representation of the real thing. Reflecting Agent (PG110), Dry Dust (PG105), Damp Dust (PG106), Rubber Track (UA904), Intermediate Wear (UA905), Old Track (UA906) Rust Rust is another technique that takes some mastering, and this set is here to help. It contains the basic three shades of rust, which are then modulated by three pigment tones to break up the colour and add realism. There is no substitute for studying references to get rust effects right, and there are six photos on the boxtop that will give you a good start, although there are myriad photos available on the 'net to assist you. Eroding Burned Rust (PG107), Oxidation State (PG108), Weathering Marks (PG109), Burned Rust (UA907), Corroded Rust (908), Streaking Rust (UA909) Mud & Dust Mud and dust are found in large quantities on any vehicle that has been in-theatre for some time, despite the best efforts of crew, wind and rain, showing different colours and effects depending on conditions and terrain. A four-panel pictorial instruction is included on the rear of the box, along with captions giving extra information, which helps to make the process more clear. N.Europe Dry Mud (PG114), Red Dry Mud (PG115), S.Europe Dry Mud (PG116), N.Europe Dark Mud (UA913), Red Mud (UA914), S.Europe Mud (UA915) N.Europe Dust (PG111), E.Europe Dust (PG112), S.Europe Dust (PG113), N.Europe Dust (UA910), E.Europe Dust (UA911), S.Europe Dust (UA912) Lichen & Moss A set of four pigment powders and two fixers for your dioramas that are over-grown or unkempt. Sprout Green (POW01), Lush Plant (POW02), Fall Season (POW03), Rotten Plant (POW04), Gloss Lime Fixer (FF01), Gloss Muddy Fixer (FF02) Algae For wet & slimy areas of your models and dioramas. Luxuriant Green (POW05), Full-Blown Green (POW06), Blight Plant (POW07), Dried Plant (POW08), Gloss Dirty Green Fixer (FF03), Gloss Yellow Green Fixer (FF04) Burned Not strictly a Combo set, but as it includes pigment, it's here. Five burned colours and one ash pigment for burned out vehicles and buildings. Blackened Umber (UA758), Exhausted Umber (UA759), Rusted Umber (UA760), Burned Stains (UA761), Incinerated White (UA762), Ash (PG117) Conclusion Very helpful sets, especially for those that have yet to venture into the world of weathering and adding realism. careful painting and weathering should always be accompanied by reference to how the real items look, so study photos of the real thing before trying these techniques, and it will pay dividends. Look out for more sets soon. highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of

  18. Hey I'm currently trying to get the replacement parts of a Buccaneer canopy (1/72) and a Wellington prop (1/72). I don't have the parts numbers and Airfix has asked me for them. Can anyone help? If not - the Lancaster prop number (and I'll get 2)? Anyone know how much their parts cost too? Thanks

  21. Hello, I am a new member on this site, but have been returning to this site for about six months, I have been building models for about 8 years and am just starting to use spray cans, I used the Testors Cap sprayer, but have lost most of the stuff for it. I mostly build World War II aircraft but am building a few jet aircraft. So, hello. I hope that I have introduced myself well and will learn more techniques.
  22. A Sophisticated War Machine Leopard 1 A3/A4 TOKYO, Oct. 11, 2013 – MENG has announced a new kit numbered TS-007 – the German main battle tank Leopard 1 A3/A4 in the 53rd All Japan Model & Hobby Show. Test shots and samples are displayed in the show, which means this TS-007 project is undergoing tests and it will be available pretty soon. Leopard 1 MBT features extraordinary reliability and excellent tactical mobility. It was a standard equipment of European troops and it served in more than 10 countries in the world. The Leopard 1 A3 incorporated all the improvements of the Leopard 1 A2 but with a new welded turret of spaced armor with a wedge-shaped gun mantlet. The turret rear stowage bin was incorporated into the contour of the turret. The loader's periscope was movable in both elevation and azimuth. The Leopard 1 A4 was fitted with the same turret as Leopard 1 A3, but had an integrated fire-control system which helped the tank attack distant targets more accurately. This TS-007 plastic model is 269.5mm in total length and 97mm in width. This kit consists of 471 plastic parts on 23 sprues and 10 PE parts on 2 PE frets. Periscopes and lights are provided with clear parts; all hatches can be modeled open or closed; armor protection for periscope and grilles for engine compartment can be precisely presented with PE parts; track links and one-piece TPE tracks are included; three options (German Leopard 1 A3/A4 or Greek Leopard 1 A3) are provided.
  23. We've popped open the new Airfix 1/72 Hawker Siddeley Harrier GR.1 and here are some photos of the sprues and instructions. The kit is in stock with us and available to order.
  24. Hi all, Please don't be too judge mental, but I thought I'd share my first attempt at one of the new tooling typhoons that Airfix have recently released. And what a fantastic kit it is, feel bad for not letting it go to someone who knows what they're doing a little better... Haha. But anyway, here she is! I made the starter kit version as that was the only one I could find(and still haven't seen a "normal" boxed kit since) at the Hendon model show. The paints were the ones complimentary with the kit, and in hindsight I wish that I had used the Revell acrylics that I'm used to but C'est la vie! The decals were great, hardly any silvering from them at all. Sadly for all of you I was too excited to get building and so didn't have time to stop, and take pictures in-between assembly stages, this kit was built in a night(and early morning, if you want to get technical) Here she is! The water splodges were sorted, one thing I shall do on the next one is cut the film on the decal so I don't get a mini tent on the side(under the "H") Enjoy All the best GuidoKM
  25. Hi all, This isn't really a build thread of this kit, more of a place where I'll be posting things to look out for if you build this kit. Such as fit problems, ejector pin marks, stuff like that. I should also note that I will be building this model wheels up because of a lack of space, so I wont be commenting on those areas. Having started this kit today I haven't fitted anything really. Only the ends of the bomb bay roof. And being a brush painter it may take me a while. So the only thing in this post is ejector marks on the floor (The other side of the bomb bay) and on the right hand side of the fuselage. This picture shows the floor and there are five ejector marks, I feel these could easily be seen through the canopy if left untreated. These aren't the only ejector marks on the floor but I feel the only ones that would likely be seen. Also after opening the holes for the motor that is mounted in the bomb bay I refilled the holes on the floor side. This picture shows the righthand fuselage with three ejector marks, the one that concerns me is the one in the middle of the side panel, although in fairness the panel is flat enough for me not to amend it as a decal will cover it over. The other ejector marks I believe wont be seen, these are also present on the other fuselage half but again I feel they wont be seen. TTFN Ashley.
