  1. Hello, This is the old Matchbox/Revell 1/32 Spitfire 22/24. The cockpit, guns, wheels and decals are after-market parts. IMHO this kit is way too wrong to get a good Spitfire whitout a tremendous amount of work. The nose shape is wrong, the windscreen too, not sure about the propeller, panel lines... I regret having started it, anyway it is done, it is now displayed at the back my scalemodel showcase. cheers
  2. Hi folk's not really a car builder(it's all that high gloss finishing stretching my patience) but I love this iconic car and when it was re-released earlier this year I grabbed one,I got off to a good start but it's sat since the summer 95% finished so today I pushed on and completed it,thank's for looking and no bonnet sliding when you take the car out later!
  3. Hi everyone, There have been a few F-89 Scorpions in RFI recently and this is mine that I finished for Telford. The kit is the Revell kit and I used the design of the original decals to print my own for the checks as the white had turned yellow on the decal sheet. Masks were created for the star and bars as the ones on the decal sheet were not well produced. Vallejo and Revell acrylics were used. Robert
  4. I have a few other things to finish off so I'll stick this here as a placeholder meantime: The Revell boxing of the 1980-ish Matchbox mould. Still bagged in its box. I'm also betting that the transfers are much better than the originals: Hopefully get round to it soon. John
  5. Hi All! Well I’ve been on this forum for a few weeks now so thought I would post my first WIP thread. Revell’s 1/48 F-15E. I noticed that there was recently a GB on the F-15. Sadly I missed this but figured I would post anyway to compare my novice building skills against some excellent models. Also it gives me a chance to get used to posting pics and develop my skills before the 2018 GB’s start. I am making this completely OOB and can’t imagine that I’ll be getting involved in any scratch building just yet. So, one with some pics! I forgot to take pics as I was working on the cockpit but have it fully assembled here. Here it is with seam lines filled and sanded. Not much work involved as the fit was great. Air intakes assembled. Quite happy with the sanding and filling to remove the seam before they were painted and fixed into the main fuselage. And last one for tonight, the main fuselage dry fitted. Will continue tomorrow. Thanks for looking and any advice would be great 👍

  7. I am quite used to seeing and hearing Apaches, living just down the rad from Wattisham, so when a Revell kit turned up in a local model shop for change from £10 I thought I would have a go. Not the UK version, but the Royal Netherlands Air Force colourful one. So to make this more difficult I thought I would build in some lights and motors. The rotors both turn and the anti collision lights work. It should have port & starboard lights but they failed after the body went together. Anyway, this is how she looks. Hope you like it
  8. My attempt at building a WR tail code A-10 in euro one camo. I don’t live to far from the twin bases of Woodbridge and Bentwaters and already had my HAS diorama, so an A-10 was always a logical choice. I remember going along to a Bentwaters airshow as a kid and frequently seeing the ‘hunting pairs’ of Warthogs flying over. Inspiration also from the new acquisition at the Bentwaters Cold War Museum. Lovely to see one back there. This is an old Revell kit from eBay with a nice resin seat thanks to @RMP2. Thanks for looking.
  9. So here she is, my first Shackleton, an aircraft I've loved since childhood when they used to clatter over into Woodford occasionally, the highlight of any schoolday when that happened! Built straight OOB with just a few little aerial additions after reading Chally71's Shack thread on here - many thanks for the info! No wires yet though, I'll get round to sprue melting another day. I was going to do WL756, but having seen that 795 is now preserved at St Mawgan (albeit as an MR2 again) I thought I'd honour her instead. I hope I've done this beautiful Avro justice ...
  10. Stuka

    New project started today. Revell issue of the Hasegawa 'D' kit. A few wee extras from Quickboost & Eduard to come. Progress pics & updates as-and-when. Please feel free to make any criticism or ask any questions along the way. Stay tuned. Ian.
  11. Revell 1/144 Hawkeye

    I'm jumping in! I started this sometime in January and with one thing and another she ended up languishing on the shelf of doom so I thought I'd get her done in this KUTA season. Done some of the subassemblies, so far everything has gone together quite nicely. The cockpit is pretty good for this scale and even has instrument panel decals, I added some tape belts but not sure how much you will see once everything is buttoned up. I boxed in the undercarriage wells and added a little bit to the exhaust as both these ares are just completely open otherwise. Also the three windows on the aft starboard side are not supplied as clear parts so I drilled and filed them and then for the glass I shoved some melted clear sprue into the hole. A few swipes with sandpaper and voila! The middle one is a fraction larger but as long as my window masks are all the same size it should look fine. Hopefully tonight I'll get a bit done on her Thanks Segan
  12. I suppose I best post this since it's the first model I've attempted to put together in over 30 years. Made many mistakes but if I learn from any of them I'm happy. It was never likely to be a showpiece A few firsts. First time ever with an airbrush, first serious effort at making a cockpit look somewhere close to how it should. And first go with acrylics which I soon realised I needed after the fluff from Dave the Cat made a mess of the enamels said cockpit was first decorated with. anyway.... Here's just a couple of pics but there's more on flickr if anyone's desperate to see what kind of mess it all got into. Including a few macro shots of the cockpit detail (or lack of it in my case). Now to decide whether I'm ready for the Revell 1/32 Lynx HAS.3 I bought the same day as the Spitfire.
  13. Pair of P-47s

    Built the ongoing radial engines GB. Revell (camo) and Academy (bare metal) Thunderbolts. Academy seems to have too much rake on the undercarriage but by far the nice kit. Thanks to @warhawk for helping me out with decals WIP here
  14. Hello, This is a plane which was only on technical drawings at the end of the WWII. Revell has changed this documentation into model. It is very good kit with nice and sharp panel lines. Great fit and easy to build. Colours and scheme are just my imagination how this "German secret" might looks if it will go into action. Airbrushed with Revell aqua.
  15. Hi, Here's my latest: Revell 1/48 Tornado with HaHen decals for a MFG1 bird. It's straight from the box, with Mr Paint paints and Pebeo acrylic matt varnish. Hope you like it, S.
  16. This is Revell's 1/72 P47M, built completely OOB, painted with a mix of Tamiya for the uppers and Alclad for the aluminium underside, small details picked out with Revell enamels. Weathered with thinned Tamiya washes and Tamiya weathering sets. The decals are Revell's own and they were a bit of a pain, a little too thick to sit well but after lashings of micro set/sol, they finally behaved themselves.
  17. Morning all,another marker for number eight in the GB,this was another blast of nostalgia when I opened the box this one was a definite build when I was a kid even molded in roughly the same colour as the original but boy is it tiny ! A great base with ruined building supplied and even a couple of Afrika Corps figuires which will be added! Again be a couple of week's till it's started
  18. Hi folk's number seven for the GB and three thing's,never built one,two great build's in the GB to inspire me and picked up for less than a fiver! Sprue shot's,love the detail on the base.not starting until the current three finished so be a couple of week's.
  19. Opel GT, 1:32

    Ready for inspection is my Opel GT, this is my first car build (I usually build aircraft) and was a present from my car mad 7 year old. It is an out of the box build, finished in striking Revell orange! This build was a real learning curve as I discovered the paintwork has to be spotless, and everything is slightly larger than the 1:72 aircraft I'm used to. However, apart from the wheels and tyres (which Revell made incorrect), and mastering painting the body and covering to dry, it has all gone nice and smooth. I'm pleased with my finished car, and more importantly my son is too!
  20. REVELL 1/72 HALIFAX MKIII QUESTIONS

    Dear friends, I just purchased the Revell Halifax MkIII kit. Excellent molding, at least inside their plastic bags. The instructions say you can build a MkIII, MkV and a MkVII. However, I do not see the wing extensions for the MkVII version. Also, I believe the MkV used different engines than those of the MkIII kit. My question is: did MkVII used MkIII wings during its development, therefore justifying Revell's claim that you can build a MkVII? The same question goes with the MkV version. Funny thing that with the above versions available in the kit, Revell only offers decals for two MkIII schemes. Thank God for Xtradecals!!! I may have to hold on to my Alley Cat wing extension conversion from MkIII to MKVII if I cannot use the kit wings. Finally I heard a rumor that Airfix is working on their own version of the Halifax MkIII. Anything true about that? I thought Airfix parent company was having financial troubles. Would not see them committing to a four engine kit if that is the case. Thanks for all replies to my queries. Juan R-S
  21. I remember I desperately wanted a Shackleton when I was a kid. It's brilliant we've now got Revell and Airfix making them! My initial thoughts on opening this were it has a lot of parts! I don't know if anyone else has found this too, but where the pieces join the sprues the plastic is quite thick - it needs careful cutting so as not to snap thin parts or leave tears on larger parts where they were attached. Apart from that though, what an amazing kit this looks! Beautiful lines on the surfaces, and so far fitting together well. I'm going to use satin dark sea grey spray for the bulk of it, I'll mask the transparencies and leave the props, etc off until the end. Impressive amount of detail for the interior ...
  22. Yet another master series Falcon from me. I have lost count of how many of these i have built. Nearly straight from the box but with 3d printed radar dish. Weathering is being a bit washed out in the photos. weathering not 100% movie accurate but this is my Falcon so im not too bothered. Still a great kit.
  23. Another NASCAR build finished today. So why the title ? - couple of years back I posted three NASCAR builds in quick succession - Keefr22 was very complimentary and we chatted about NASCAR modelling (as you do). Next thing is, Keith has bagged-up and sent a whole slue of unused and very rare AM decal sheets all the way down here to New Zealand without asking for any payment but asking that I promise to 'put them to good use'. Just now I'm really in to race-car modelling in general and NASCAR building in particular so it was easy to keep my promise and here's the first of 'Keith's builds'. Dale Earnhardt Jnr. raced a couple of times in the Winston Cup '99 season but his first full rookie year was 2000. This is his 2000 car from the Revell kit, painted as usual with Tamiya acrylic straight from the rattle-can (the interior is Xtracolour enamels). After two brushed, yes brushed coats of Johnsons Klear, I applied the excellent JWTBM decals and sealed them with another two coats of Johnsons. I'll wax polish the model in a few days once it is fully dried/cured. Finished just in-time for a competition here on Armistice weekend (same as the Telford Nationals). Thanks for taking the time to look and/or comment, please feel free to ask any questions or make any criticism. My sincere thanks to Keith for the decals and I will be doing another 'Keith Car' very soon. AFN Ian.
  24. H’s first KUTA. F15 shame

    So having failed in this GB miserably, I am taking my place in this KUTA. Hope to get cracking soon.
  25. Hello all, Here is my recently finished Revell 1/48 F-15E Strike Eagle, in the markings of the 335th Fighter Squadron 'Chiefs' during Operation Inherent Resolve in 2016. 89-0487 downed an Iraqi Mi-24 with a GBU-10 during Operation Desert Storm and was the first F-15 to reach 12000 flying hours. The build thread is here I wanted a heavily worn jet as seen in many pictures online. Extras used include Pavla seats, Speed Hunter Graphics decals, Eduard Brassin GBU-39 Small Diameter Bombs and FOD guards from the spares. the AIM-120s, AIM-9, GBU-38s and GBU-12s are all from an Academy F-15E. Here it is alongside my 391st FS and 492nd FS jets: Thanks for looking. Dave
