  1. Latest Walkaround Updates

    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. Well, right on cue after an upgrade to the system software we are currently under attack from a group of IPs that are synonymous with various malicious attacks on servers. Funny that, isn't it? We're working with our Hosts, US cyber security and their British equivalent over here to collate evidence with a view to pressing charges both on the people perpetrating the attack, and those requesting and paying for it. These days you can commission this kind of attack quite cheaply if you know where to look, I believe. We're also speaking to our solicitors to orchestrate the defence of our server, and will be pursuing this further once we have all the evidence in hand. In the meantime, please accept our apologies for the delay in loading pages until they're locked off. They're also trying to Brute Force our email server, so that's being combatted too. By all means offer us a bit of sympathy for having to put up with this crap again, but don't launch into any rants about their mental state, parental status, or moral compass on here. Do it by PM by all means, and as before if you are aware of any evidence on these attacks that would help us stop them, it is your moral obligation to let us know, as this is motivated purely by malice, but the real victims are you the members.
  3. Begemot Decals have announced their latest decal sheet for the BIG Mig-29, which is a replacement to the often poorly researched or incomplete stencils that accompany a kit decal sheet. Coded 32-006 it contains a full stencil decal set for the Mig-29 for the aircraft and armament. It provides stencils for the standard grey-green camouflage and also for four-tone low altitude camouflage. If you've got the older Revell or the more modern Trumpeter kits, these could be just what you're looking for More info here.

  5. Greetings from Canada

    Greetings gents, It seems I have forgotten to introduce myself so here goes. My name is Ryan and I'm originally from California but moved up to Vancouver Canada and was able to get into the hobby as of late 2015. I have always had a fascination with Aircraft particularly Military aircraft from both now and WW2. My father took me to a few airshows when I was younger and I happened to live next to an Air national guard base filled with F-16s taking off every single day for their practice drills. I built my first model at the age of 9 after seeing a 1/48th scale F/A-18A Blue angels sitting on the shelf in my local pawn shop and quickly begged my Dad to get it for me. As you might imagine at that age I wasn't able to build it properly especially building it on my own. All I had was the cement and no paint whatsoever but I was proud of it and displayed it in my room. It wasn't till now that I took the hobby seriously so that I could have something more productive to do rather than sitting around playing xbox in my spare time and I find it therapeutic at times and helps me eliminate stress after work. so far I have just been reading as many reviews and build posts to try and learn new techniques for when I build and so far I have seen a steady improvement. I will take all the advice I can get from here so please don't be afraid to tell it like it is and point out mistakes I look forward to meeting everyone. cheers.
  6. I've been looking around for a really good, but reasonably priced range of paint brushes for a while... I accidentally ordered the wrong brush set from one of my suppliers recently and it turns out that they are superb. So, now we have getting on for 50 different paint brushes on order, plus a few brush sets. Hopefully they will be arriving in a week or so and will post more information then. Thanks, Paul
  7. Airfix's Reboxed 1/72 P-51

    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:
  8. 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.
  9. Shows Diary

    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?
  10. 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.
  11. 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

  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
