  1. My next effort. This has also been sitting in the loft for a while. I think this is the Hasegawa kit in a Revell box. Lovely kit, goes together really well. The option I chose has the larger Ta152 tail assembly. I chose to finish the kit in the colours of "brown 4" of JG26 and example found in April 1945. This particular machine has the subject of many discussions about its colour scheme, all based on a couple of black and white photos. I've chosen what seems to be considered to be the most likely colours. Eventually I used 7 colours. It has RLM 75 and RLM 71 on the wings, RLM 81 and 82 on the fuselage, the made-up RLM 84 on the centre fuselage and RLM 76 on the nose and tail undersides. The underside also a natural metal section as well. All were sprayed on Vallejo colours except the RLM 76 whcih an Xtracolour shade. I didn't like the Vallejo colour. I had a problem with decal silvering, something I haven't had for years. Being used to Xtracrylic colours all being gloss, silvering has never been an issue. I struggled with the Vallejo gloss varnish to get smooth even finish. The flat coat was fine.I'll try another gloss coat n the next kit. Anyway, here it is. Thanks for looking.
  2. After a lot of thinking I've decided to build Revell's 1:72 Buccaneer for the Made in GB group build. This is a Matchbox kit that has been reboxed, and unfortunately doesn't have the signature folding wings and airbrake. However, ever since I saw the Buccaneer at the London RAF museum I've had a soft spot for the aircraft. the kit is made up of 3 sprues, all pretty clean and flash free, as well as a small clear sprue for the canopy. There is a small decal sheet, so the graphics will be minimal, but I love the mean appearance of the aircraft in its desert pink colour scheme.
  3. Started this one also
  4. I'm toying with the idea of converting the Revell/Matchbox Tiger Moth to a Fox Moth. Apart from the new fuselage. centre wing section and tweaked u/c legs, my research indicates that not much else needs changing. Does anyone have any other views to the contrary? Anyone have any scale plans?
  5. I have come to the conclusion that I have to start reducing the stash of model kits I have, starting with one that has been lurking in the bottom of the draw for the last 15 years. This is a model kit of the Deutsche Marine Type 143 Fast Attack Craft produced by Revell. Along the way I have lost the original packaging and there has been some minor damage to the mouldings on the sprue but nothing to prevent me building the model. I cannot remember why I bought the model in the first place, it was probably one of those spur of the moment things or I wanted to use it for bits, which was my want back in the distant past. However for whatever reason it was never cannibalised or built and has lain unloved until I saw a marketing picture of a completed model on the internet for the recently re-released kit. Having seen the picture my interest was rekindled and step one in stash reduction has been achieved. As I previously said, the box was lost along the way and some of the items have come off the sprue so I can’t start with the usual box and contents photograph so a picture of the new box art on the Revell website will have to do: I have to say that the new instructions with the re-released kit on the website are far better than the ones I have and so I have down loaded them to help me with the project. The German Navy has had a long association with S-Boats and the Type 143 was introduced into service in the late 1970s with a follow on sub class of Type 143A (which was also subject of a Revell kit). The Type 143 went out of service in 2005 with some being sold onto other navies. The Type 143 S-Boats were all named after birds with the lead ship in the class of 10 being named Albatross. These in common with all Fast Attack Craft were heavily armed and suited for operations in coastal waters, in the case of the Type 143, the Baltic, although they did operate as far afield as the Mediterranean. Armament consisted of two Oto Melara 76mm Guns, four MM38 Exocet Surface to Surface Missiles and two 21 inch Torpedo tubes facing aft. The ships were constructed with a composite hull (wood, grp and aluminium) and had four MTU propulsion engines developing a maximum speed of 40 knots. I am not sure what they were like to serve on but I suspect the shallow draught and narrow beam made them quite uncomfortable in a decent sea way. I am going to have to rely heavily on the internet for modelling reference and found a couple of useful web sites to help me although I am hoping not to deviate too far from the original kit: www.schnellboot.net/ http://s-boot.net/sboats-german navy.html The kit is at 1:144 Scale which is quite a nice size for adding detail. However I have decided that I will try and keep to the script and not deviate too far from an out of the box build. Although that said I have already decided I am going to replace the moulded railings, there may be one or two other minor adjustments but this should be a relatively straight forward build. As for the model kit itself the mouldings appear to be of good quality and I am hoping will fit together with little or no problems. I think replacing the kit railings with PE would make a massive difference and that is my starting point. So that is the introduction out of the way. I will be posting updates of progress of the build very shortly. Thanks for looking. Paul
  6. I've had the revell hunter for a while and wanted to build it but just haven't had the time since i gave been very busy for the last few months with exams. However, with my final exam this week the group build seemed like the perfect motivation to start the hunter as a summer project, since i never seem to finish models without the pressure of a GB! Im going to be building the hunter without aftermarket parts although i may get aftermarket decals as i am very tempted by the idea of modelling XE601, the 'rasberry ripple' hunter which was sold for spares use a few years ago, as it is a much more exciting scheme than the green and grey camoflage. I've been taking abit of a break from modelling and this will be the first ket of the year for me, and also my first 1/32 kit so im excited to see what it will be like making a larger model. So far i have only started the ejector seat but more progress should follow soon. Work has started on the ejector seat. I need some new paints as they have all started to dry up! Will
  7. Hi guys, well I fancied building the Russian helicopter gunship that was flown in the Rambo 2 movie, it was supposed to look like the Hind, the Puma was modified for the task. I picked up this 1/32 Revell kit as the basis for the build, lucky for me I got it off eBay for only £15 including delivery. It's a pretty rough kit, very basic and crude in some areas but not too bad in others, but it's more than adequate for this project. I will have to scratch build the wings and pylons but thankfully the weapons are available from Trumpeter.
  8. I managed to pick this one up on ebay last month for the bargain price of £7 & have been itching to get started on it. It's actually the Eduard kit, just in a Revell box & with Revell instructions. No photo etch stuff, but I will be trying out Bob's Buckles for the first time. I received 30 eyelets & 20 turnbuckles this week - boy are they small ! After studying my pics of the Shuttleworth's F2B I can see that I'm going to need more. Paint will be mostly Vallejo model air, I don't have any colours that match the three main colours, so that's another order required before too long - lucky the kit cost next to nothing. I started putting the cockpit parts together using the revell instructions, but decided I didn't like their colour scheme, so the floor changed from Silver to wood. I should have done the grey & wood of the instrument panel the other way round, but I'm still pleased with the way it's come out. WP_20170611_17_00_07_Pro_LI by Andy Moore, on Flickr WP_20170611_16_11_02_Pro_LI by Andy Moore, on Flickr All the inside is now painted, well as far as I'm going to anyway - the bracing wires look a bit messy, if I was doing it again I think I'd paint some stretched sprue & stick it in place of the moulded wires. WP_20170611_17_23_01_Pro_LI by Andy Moore, on Flickr WP_20170611_18_03_01_Pro_LI by Andy Moore, on Flickr This is so much more fun than a grey jet fighter
  9. Hello folks! Those who have seen my posts before may or may not remember that as a tropical forest ecology student I spend four months or so every year in Borneo. Following on from my successful Vampire built there last year, and motivated by the need to keep reducing my stash when when not in the UK, I shoe-horned the Revell Hunter and Airfix Swift into my rucksack this year - and managed to complete the Hunter and get the Swift 75% done! Not too bad considering the heat, discomfort and the fact I work six day weeks for fthe whole period. Anyway, here's the Hunter: it's actually the FGA9 which I bought for silly money at Telford a few years back - but I've back-converted to an early F6 by hacking an F6 tailpipe off the first Revell Hunter I built a good decade back, when you could actually buy the kit without selling major body parts. It represents XF526 of 63 Squadron, which flew Hunters briefly in the late 1950s before reforming later as a "Shadow" unit as part of the Central Flying School with FGA9s in the 1970s. I added some scratchbuilt sidewall detail, a bit of representative wiring in the undercarriage bays, a resin ejector seat and mainwheels from Quickboost, and the decals are Xtradecal. Hope you like! As well as being a pleasingly unusual squadron, it has a local connection as 63 were based at Waterbeach not a million miles away from Ms.Vulcanicity's folks in Ely. Lastly, here's the view from my modelling desk over the jungle! The sharp-eyed might spot the Hunter in this view.
  10. Evening folk's I had considered a couple of Hobbyboss easy kit's for this GB as I have a dozen or so 109's on the shelf from various manufacturer's in a variety schemes but despite a catalogue of half finished larger builds in the cupboard I decided to re-visit this one from a couple of year's ago. It's a beautiful kit as hopefully the build will reveal I did start it but only progressed as far as the cockpit so within the 25% rule I, think the belt's were masking tape painted.I'm not rushing with this one unlike most of my build's Here's where I am to date.
  11. Hi guys! I'm Rodolfo Angeles from the Philippines. Been a lurker for a longtime. I decided to become more active by sharing my current build. It's the new revell 1/72 T-55. Real nice molding.
  12. Hello Finally I had some time to continue the work on my Ost-Front scene. I've finished the models some time ago: Ju 87G-2 Stuka 'Kanonen Vogel' and Heinkel He 111 H-6. Both in 1:72 scale. Now it's the time to build the diorama for them. The plan is something like that: So, here is what I've done so far: Ju 87G-2 Stuka 'Kanonen Vogel' from Academy Heinkel He 111 H-6 from Revell Perspex box base with both of them arranged: Some SC250 bombs from Czech Masters (6) and one left from Messerschmitt Bf-109 kit: Some SC1000 bombs. Four again from Czech Masters and two from the Heinkel kit. They are a little bit bigger. Not sure which are in correct scale but I've decided to use all of them. The sledges to transport the bombs I've made from matches. Cut, glued, filed, airbrushed, drybrushed and finally weathered with washes. Here is how they look with the bombs: And finally Kettenkrad to tow the sledges and Kubelwagen for pilots (who are not ready yet). Both from Academy kit. The diorama will have some boxes, barrels etc. plus of course ground crew servicing the planes and the pilots resting and waiting for the mission. Thanks for watching.
  13. Hi all. With my keen interest in fire trucks, I couldn't resist this kit. I have seen videos of this kit online showing it with lights and blues and two's, etc, and have been impressed. Usually I download the assembly instructions a month or so before buying any kit that I want to add lights to so that I can work out if it is possible or not. Alas, I just could not find any instructions posted online at all so this will be built with one eye shut and with a lot of luck and hope. One thing that really impressed me was that the main chassis was in one piece, so no worry about getting it dead square, no cross members to fiddle with, etc. Unfortunately this kit is going to take me a long time to do as I have a very busy period coming up at work and may not progress as much as I'd like to. I do not have much patience, so this will be a challenge in itself. So here we go. I thank you for your patience in advance should you wish to follow this build. The impressive box lid. I wonder if mine will look like this? Work station ready to go. Tea, phone and cigs at the ready. All washed and dried and priority items at the top. Everything that is possible to fit to the chassis before spraying. The main powerhouse, assembled, sprayed and ready to place. The chassis, sprayed and the engine fitted........... Thanks for looking.
  14. Hi guys, I will build a Mistel I in 1/32 scale. I will use a Revell/Hasegawa Messerschmitt Bf-109 G2 as the leading airplane. For the flying bomb I will use the Revell Junkers Ju-88 A4 kit with the Aims Mistel I conversion set. I think I have some extra's for the Bf-109. I will place some foto's later. Cheers,
  15. I fancy building a Heinkel 111 I said to my eldest yesterday,"I,ve got the big scale one going nowhere" he replied, next day the behemoth is dwarfing my work table.Now big projects usually are my downfall(USS Fletcher and Bonne Homme Richard to name two) so hopefully it's third time lucky,he got the kit for £19:99 when Modelzone closed which was more than a bargain,reviews of the kit are generally favourable the main gripe being the beautiful rivet detail on the wing's are absent from the fuselage there is more than enough detail in the box and that's fine by me.I know my WIPS are usually five pictures and finished so I will try and make it a bit more detailed than usual. Here's the box and contents. And as a size guide here are the main component's with a 1/48 Spitfire for comparison. This as far as I remember the second 111 I,ve built the other was Matchbox's many moons ago.see you soon!
  16. Welcome to the RFI of my Revell Eurofighter Typhoon single seater 1/72. She is OOB except for the canopy which is a Pavla vac form one that I had to use as I killed the original. I scratched a few internal bits but apart from that she's box fresh. Painted in Tamiya acrylics and Vallejo metal colour with washes by Flory. The kit went together quite well a few bumps along the road but over all I'm pretty happy with the way she turned out. about half way through I decided to add the D-Day stripes which I'm really happy with. ( My first painted stripes ) I hadn't planned on taking the snaps yet but it was such a lovely sunrise this morning I decided to drag myself out of bed and take some snaps in the garden before heading off to see my old mum on Mother's Day. I think this one should be dedicated to her. The WIP can be found here. Without further ado let's get on with the pictures. I hope you like em. And that's your lot I hope you like them. Thanks to everyone for tagging along in the WIP and helping me through the tough bits and all the technical help. There are a few gaps and errors here and there but I'm happy and damned if I'm going back now. She's in the cabinet and that's that. I have started my new build thread here. If you fancy another joyous ride of the rum and uncanny. Take care and as always Happy Modelling. John.
  17. Well hello everybody! I have decided to head back to the Gentlemans scale for a nice relaxing stress free, almost spring time, out of the box build. (Probably) Since My Father's Day gift from the kids last year ( Tickets to the Cosford air show ) I haven't been to an air show since I was knee high to a grass hopper and the sight and sounds of such a wonderful aircraft have stuck in my head. The rest of the show was pretty cool too. Here's a brief glimpse of the Typhoon in flight. https://wn.com/mobile/eurofighter_typhoon__cosford_airshow_2016 I had bought the Revell kit from the bargain bin in my LMS in Birmingham a few months before not knowing that I would be seeing one in flight. Long story short, this will be my next build, it's a far cry from my last mammoth three month long build of the venerable Airfix Bf109-E. Back to the matter at hand...... The boxed offering is a "Eurofighter Typhoon F2, R.A.F Coningsby UK, 2005/2007 No.3 Squadron. It is the magic number after all. There are other schemes but this one is the one I put a pin in. The Cosford jet was a FGR4 but it was a single seater like this one so that's good enough for me. I hope you will join me in building this lovely kit. Let's hope it is a lovely kit eh? Any hoo here is the obligatory box shot after I have cleaned the bench and set up the almost ritualistic first shot of a new build. Nice innit? I'm going to post now and follow up after dinner. Take care and hope you're all having a lovely Friday eve. Happy Modelling. Johnny Typhoon.
  18. My entry for the Bf 109 GB will be the Revell/ICM Bf 109F-4. I haven,t participated in a GB for a while but have been looking forward to this one. The kit comes with decent engine detail with the option to display the engine but i recon i'll be closing it up as it spoils the outline of one of the best looking variants of the 109 family. Heres some spue shots etc, i lost damaged the box so no box art i'm afraid. Ooops last one went a bit pear shaped, sorry!!! You get the general idea i'm sure. Cheers, Greg
  19. I have a Revell DH-2 in stash and this GB gives me an excuse to finally start it. Greg in Oklahoma
  20. My 14 year old daughter joined the air cadets last year & it appears that she has become mad keen on airplanes (swmbo is not impressed). Her favourite at the airshows we go to is the Eurofighter, despite my fondness for Lysanders, Hurricanes and the Miles Messenger. As it happens my step daughter gave me this kit for Christmas, so it seems it's time to build a kit that requires no ez-line. As with most of the planes I build, this one will end up hanging from the ceiling, so I shan't be bothering with any aftermarket bits & bobs. However, before it gets hung up & gets its' full load of weapons fitted, I'm going to try and photoshop it into this picture: Typhoon by Andy Moore, on Flickr It worked quite well with Sally-B, so I thought I'd give it another go. I can't remember the last time I built a Jet, so this could be a disaster. My paints of choice are Vallejo model-air, so if anyone has any thoughts on the shades of grey that I should use I'd be most grateful if you could share those thoughts. Here are some pics I took that are fairly self explanatory, initial progress should be posted tomorrow.

  21. Hello The warship virus is back and i have dusted my naval projects. While my Hood is still on hold, i have made progress on another project.I have started building Revells Schlachtschiff Bismarck a while ago and made also a start on the Tirpitz, also from Revell. Like so often building has started quite spontaneous and i think its now time to present them. Both are quite new kits and well detailed, to enhence this, i am using the Eduard BiG Ed set, a wooden deck from Pontos and turned metal barrels from RB and Master, i am not sure if i add more stuff. Depends on my budged. Building warships is complex so i am progressing on Bismarck first. Some pictures contain also parts from her sister ship. Both kits have some fit problems but nothing some putty and sanding can t cure. The first pics showing the hull of Tirpitz, with some sanding and filling. I am still fighting with with the different shape of her bow. Some fit problems and a new keel made from putty. I had started to build parts of the super structures. Quite different. Tirpitz on top. Some images of the pe parts, wooden deck and gun barrels Now on to Bismarck. The paint work on her hull is done but could need some touch ups. The decals for the water pass, and camo stripes were not used. Its more easy to match the the color of the baltic scheme stripes in her super structure. The poster from the Kagero books are a good back up for photos and a very helpful reference. It has also some flaws too. The Pontos deck is on, the red stripes are painted, the aft one is too small. Decals will do the rest of this detail. That was the point of the re start of the build. The main modelling time in the last 10 days were adding, folding and glueing on photo etched parts and removing and sanding away plastic details. But that is only the beginning. The bow. Still lots of details are missing here. The forecastle in the area of ht e first break water, the louvers got details. The barbette from turret "B" or Bruno got platforms around. Not every handrail of these platforms made it onto the model... Some midship details. Eduard has supplied the modeller with only some part of the steel decks before the catapult, Hope it looks good under the paint. I have also started to add watertight doors and the covers for the portholes. Very fiddly ! The roof of the aircraft hangar. Many of her boats were stowed here. The kit part before ...and after cutting and sanding every detail away and replacing them with pe parts. The hangar door was glued on after the pe parts were added on the roof top now i have a seam ( and also a damage ) And details around turret Caesar The turrets of the main guns have seen some work as well, more on those later. Thanks for looking Bernd
  22. The North American A-5/RA-5 Vigilante W.I.P. by Andrii Dzhuran, Revell kit 1/72 History: The rapid evolution of aircraft design in the 1950s led to new aircraft types with sleek lines and impressive performance. One such aircraft was the North American A-5/RA-5 "Vigilante". The Vigilante was designed as a carrier-based strategic nuclear bomber, but would see action over Vietnam as a fast reconnaissance aircraft. In the postwar period, the US Navy was determined to obtain a nuclear strike capability, first acquiring the North American AJ "Savage" and Douglas A-3 "Skywarrior" bombers. These were both subsonic aircraft, and since aircraft design was evolving quickly at the time, both soon became obsolete for the missions for which they had originally been designed. The new aircraft was originally referred to as the "North American General Purpose Attack Weapon" and later given the company designation of "NA-233". After discussions with the Navy, the NAA-233 concept took shape as a twin-engine aircraft with advanced combat avionics, Mach 2 performance, and an interesting "linear bomb bay" in which a nuclear weapon was popped out the tail to give the aircraft a better chance of escaping the atomic blast. North American engineers also considered fitting the aircraft with an auxiliary rocket engine powered by jet fuel and hydrogen peroxide for an additional burst of speed over the target area -- but the Navy didn't like the idea of handling a nasty, toxic, reactive, and unstable substance like hydrogen peroxide on board a ship, and so it didn't happen. The Vigilante was long and sleek, with a relatively small high-mounted swept-back wing, and all-moving slab tailplanes and tailfin. The aircraft had tricycle landing gear, with the main gear retracting into the fuselage. All three gear had single wheels and retracted forward, with the main gear rotating 90 degrees during retraction to fit into the wheel wells. The Vigilante was powered by twin General Electric YJ79-GE-2 engines, with engine bays made mostly of titanium, and covered with gold film to reflect heat. The aircraft had a large fuel capacity to give it long range and permit extended flight in afterburner. This period of history is interesting to me. Also, you might be interested. My new build in the WIP chapter “The North American A-5/RA-5 Vigilante” by Revell`s old kit begins with: Day 1 - Review of the kit; - Instructions study;
  23. First of all thank you for your feedback. I did some changes to model thanks to your suggestion. 1.) removed some decals 2.) added some details, repainted some areas, fixed wrong color on some parts Thenk you for your suggestions and helping me to get better modeler ! Finaly i have some spare Money. I was so close to buy an air-brush, but i think i will stick to brush painting and see how far i can go with it ! New pictures at the bottom of post ! Greating As a kid i had a revell tomcat as a toy and i really wanted to build one now. The kit is not new , just reboxing from an old set with new deaclas. The set is not so hard to build, there are few gaps that needed some filling, but over all it was straight build. The kit has deep and wide pannel lines so it is kinda good for brush painters, since you can apply much more layers of thined paint and still you won't loose those lines. When it comes to painting, i am a huge fan of ''what if'' models. The paints i used are mix of revell acrylic and vallejo acrylic paints. Model is whole brush painted without using any masking type since i have a problems with it. When i use a type i always get some paint beneth it :/ . You can see whole proces of Building this model here : Build is straight from a box with no aftermarket parts. Only thing i didn't like was lack of missiles decals. Story behind this model would be that deep done in South Korea jungle, the kitty is waiting for her pray. Ready to intercept any threat coming to Unated States. I done some heavy wathering that i normaly don't do, since it is tomcat, tomcat in a jungle . Hope you will like this build, it is wird and missiles got me almost crazy, but i am pleased. Any feedback and comments are welcome. Have a nice day ! Second photo set with changes ! Thanks for watching
  24. Hi, I have been a bit quite on this forum for a while, have been modelling and moving houses etc, so have not had time to post. So I thought it being a new year I would post a work in progress. I have always wanted to build this kit, but the price has put me off, so when I saw the kit for £15 at Telford last year I could not resist any longer. I have already started, could not wait, so will post images of the work done so far later. The scenario is a derelict bus being taken apart, so I have had to build a new front end, thankfully there are photos online for reference. Cheers Richard
  25. I picked this kit up off eBay at a good price and I decided to challenge myself by lighting it and throwing it into a water diorama. I must say that I have thoroughly enjoyed working on this build and I intend to produce some more maritime/water effect dioramas in the future. I hope you all enjoy the pictures.
