  1. Hello folks, This is the famous dz367, unfortunatly shot down over Berlin in January 1943. As at the time it had logged only 80 hours the weathering is rather light. Some Eduard photoetched parts are used for the cockpit and bomb bay. Cheers
  2. Aptly coded D-Dog for a Manchester, L7301 and one other aircraft were assigned to 50Sqn to support a maximum effort raid of 1046 aircraft on Cologne on the night of the 30th May 1942. That morning, Manser and another pilot collected their aircraft from 106Sqn at Coningsby. This aircraft was slightly unusual as it didn't have the mid upper turret that most Manchesters had but what wasn't unusual was the performance, particularly as loaned aircraft were often used for training. It was to carry a full compliment of incendiaries but in doing so, it wasn't able to climb above 7000ft which wasn't untypical of the aircraft being pulled along by the poorly developed Vulture engines. The crew hoped that being away from the main bomber stream up above, they would get left alone but unfortunately, their hopes were fruitless. Flak initially struck the fuselage damaging the bomb bay doors. A second burst hit the port engine setting it on fire. The fire then spread along most of the wing. Eventually, they managed to extinguish the fire and set for home. Unable to maintain height on a single Vulture and badly damaged aircraft, the crew discarded anything they could from the aircraft. Despite the efforts, the aircraft was still losing height, so Manser instructed his crew to bail out over Belgium just a few miles from the Dutch border to which they all did successfully. Manser stayed at the controls to ensure his crew got out OK but shortly after they exited, Manser lost control and the aircraft plummeted into the ground taking Manser with it. Five of the six crew made it back home with support from the resistance whilst F/O Barnes who was the navigator / bomb aimer was captured. As a result of the reports of the crew, Manser was awarded the Victoria Cross for his gallantry in giving his own life to save that of his crews. The VC read “In pressing home his attack in the face of strong opposition, in striving, against heavy odds, to bring back his aircraft and crew and, finally, when in extreme peril, thinking only of the safety of his comrades, Flying Officer Manser displayed determination and valour of the highest order.” Leslie Manser VC 1922-1942 I've been after a 48 scale Paragon Manchester kit for some time and considered it to be the holy grail of Bomber Command aircraft. Following a request on Britmodeller, Dennis aka @spitfire responded to say that he had one so I set off and over a cup of tea we put the world and exchanged money for resin (Big thanks Dennis ). Having a 48 scale Lincoln on the go already, that was a lot of resin and chopped up Lancaster that was going to be cluttering up the workbench. I can mess the bench up with a 72 scale Spitfire so you can imagine the chaos! Anyway, bit by bit, often 1 step forwards, two steps back, the Manchester came together as you can see HERE. There's still a few things to do including adding some bombs to the bay, but I'm posting as it is now as its 99% done. It's painted with Tamiya Rubber black / dark green and Mr Hobby Dark Earth with a variety of decals to complete the scheme. My next build was going to be OOB to have a rest, but now it will be a Classic Airframes Blenheim and a Sanger Short Stirling Anyway, hope you like... Thanks for looking, Neil
  3. This is the Tamiya 1/48 F-4U Corsair finished in RNZAF colours from Xtradecal's RNZAF Corsair sheet. I was looking for something other than the kit scheme & I noticed this one. The pilot named it after my wife AND she's got blue eyes so the ideal Valentine's day gift. Weathered with oils, Flory washes & Mig pigments. (The kit, not the missus). Any comments, observations or criticisms welcome as always. Pete Thanks for looking.
  4. Jagdtiger winter worn

    Well she's finally finished! I've really enjoyed this build. She's done in my customary heavy worn state. Build thread Thank you all so much for following the build
  5. F4U Royal New Zealand Air Force

    Chaps, planning on purchasing Tamiya's 1/48 F4U-1A to do a New Zealand bird, I wanna use Sky Models decal sheet as seen below, will be building as the bottom aircraft on the pic It quotes top colour as light grey but only picture I can find in colour is this one and it looks more like a very pale blue, just wanted to confirm the correct topside colour. Lee
  6. Hello all, Here is my next project - Tamiya's wonderful 1/48 F-16C, marked as a CM of the 480th Fighter Squadron (Spangdahlem AFB), during Operation Inherent Resolve in 2016. Kit: Extras: Will be using Eduard Brassin GBU-39 Small Diameter Bombs (SDB), Pavla seat, Bullseye decals, Master brass pitot tube, Master static wicks, Sniper pod and a left sided Harm Targeting Sensor (HTS), both from Hasegawa Weapons set E. The kit will be armed with 2x AIM-120, 2x AIM-9X (both from the kit), 4x GBU-39, 2x GBU-38 (from the spares) and an ALQ-131 ECM pod (from the spares). Here's the scheme i'll be going for: Dave
  7. Question for the Abrams experts

    Hey, I was looking at the new Tamiya M1A2 Abrams kits that were released last year in different scales and these all use the same paint scheme: flat sand. Have these vehicles ever been painted in the three-tone NATO camouflage, for instance? Or any other scheme, for that matter? Many thanks in advance! Cristian
  8. Corsairs Mossie !

    Hello Everyone ... Been busy down in the Group builds area. However im still managing to finish other projects. Heres the first Mosquito Ive built since i was 15. I used Tamiya’s 1/48 Mk.VI Fighter and the kit decals for a plane that was assigned to 143 Squadron Banff Wing. I found photo’s of this Mosquito using the Double rail rockets, and wing slipper tanks. I scratch built the Rocket fences that would go between the Rocket rails and the slipper tanks. Im hoping you like it. I opted to leave the plane unarmed to show the bomb bay detail and the Rocket fence details. The only issue is related to a mixup caused by me while decaling. I wasn't paying attention and didn't align the fuselage roundels and codes correctly. Without further talk I give you my Mossie. 1st some build photos And now the Finished Mossie. I hope it meets with your approval and as usual Comments, question, and jokes are welcome. Dennis Im not sure whats next ? Harrier, Hornet, or P-40N but I will start it soon.
  9. Catherham Super Seven

    Hi Folks Does anyone have any information on the above re-release ? Is it going to happen. re-release or new tool ? etc., etc., Kev
  10. Here is another one of my "Tiger collection". It is the wonderful Tiger 1 mid. production from Tamiya, pimped with some etch from Aber and on the mark models, a metal gun Barrel from RB an home made Zimmerit. The SSyms-Wagon is from Ironside, hope you like it.... Cheers Tobby
  11. #3+4/2018 First finished little armour models this year. Both built oob, only added plastic rods for the antennas.

  12. My dad´s next little armour project(s). Waited for some time now that Tamiya releases a towing vehicle for Italeri´s 88. Hoped for a FAMO halftrack but the Hanomag tractor will do too. DSC_0001 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
  13. Tamiya 1/48 Churchill VII Crocodile

    Courtesy of the 1/48 Armor Modelling Group on FB next release from Tamiya will be a Churchill VII. A crew half-figure and two marking options to allow Crocodile or gun tank to be built. Sprue shots from Tamiya Blog It appears that only the visible track links are supplied. This is a pain as, in NW Europe Churchills ran without the centre section of the trackguards fitted. This was to avoid debris between the larger turret and trackguard causing damage. Otherwise it looks OK. I like the moulded in roadwheels which should save much hair being torn out. Open hull hatches would have been good but they are simple enough to cut out and replace I suppose. EDIT: Apparently the post war mods in Tamiya's 35th kit have been removed in this one so it's a WW2 vehicle OOB.
  14. i’ll be getting the sf70h, pitty no engine, but nice to see the carbon decals included. Wait to see the price on the Caterham.
  15. Hi, this is may first post here. A few days ago I finished build De Havilland Mosquito from Tamiya. This is very good kit. I had no problems during all build. Model painted Tamiya and Gunze H paints.
  16. As I´ver already mentioned after some of you asked where my dad stores all his models, free shelf space is rare nowadays. Therefore my dad started to sort out some of his old models with which he isn´t satisfied anymore. I took some last pics before they go their final way.

  18. Hi everyone, Had another go at some armor and completed this little guy a couple of weeks ago. I think I improved a little bit with the color this time if compared to my first attempt here. And yes, the one cage on the turret is intended to be a different colour, I was trying to imply that one of them was recently replaced. Tamiya 1:48 Sdkfz 222 - Tamiya Acrylics, Abtulung Oils, Flory Wash, Black Dog resin bags etc, Vallejo Pigments. Enjoy and please constructively critique away.
  19. M10 Achilles

    Hello Everyone ... thought id show this M10 Achilles. This was my entry in the M3/M4 Group build. It was my first completed armor build since i came back to modeling 3 years ago. I was able to do some scratch building and found some smaller 1/35th stowage to use. Here is a link to the build. Without further ado here it is. I know the photo’s are dark, sadly they were taken at an poor time. A couple turret shots ↕️ A stowage photo I hope this meets with some approval. As usual comments ? Questions ? Dennis
  20. Morning folk's two kit's I've alway's wanted to have a go at are the Churchill and Centurion so with an almost clear bench after the Matchbox GB and a small build planned for the 10th anniversary GB I'm making good progress with the Sherman which has given me the armour bug! I won't start for a few week's until the Sherman's finished and I'm must try and finish the MAN truck and the Centurion is on order at my LMS. Anyway Box art. Inside the usual Tamiya quality. A bonus was a sprue of figures including two crew and a farmer and hand cart.
  21. I'd like to present my "what-if" build of an A-16C. Back in the '80s, the USAF experimented with replacing the A-10 with a 30mm gun pod-carrying Viper. The program failed, but what if it didn't? This is the Tamiya Block 50 Viper and what a kit! Loved building it. Added the following goodies: - Eduard seat, cockpit PE, exhaust, and wheels - Caracal decals - Modern Hobbies AGM-65s and ALE-50 - Hasegawa Weapons set #3 provided the centerline GPU-5 gun pod - Master Model pitot and AOA probes - Painted with MRP The intake seams should have been worked more and the canopy needs tinting...things to remember next build! I thought about adding static dischargers for about .3 seconds but decided I didn't want to be committed to an asylum just yet! LOL Thanks for looking!
  22. A few weeks ago, I was presented by a kit of A6M3 Zero in a christmas present exchange action in a forum. It was an old tool Tamiya kit of Mod.32 "Hamp". As I have no japs in my collection yet, I went on to start it! I got lots of goodies for it, but I managed to destroy the kit as my skills in engraving the panel lines are nonexistant.... Thus, I aquired a new tool Tamiya kit, its a different A6M3 variant (Mod.22, different wings), and started it after a few weeks of research. Following goodies are here, but its likely not all would be used. Sure use are only the BigEd set and the "Saburo Sakai" pilot, plus diorama items. I always want to make a diorama out of my kits, but noone makes the japanese mechanics working on the airframe! I asked Luis "Panzer vs. Tanks" on shapeways, if he can make a set, but its not yet there, and he's not sure he will make it in time for decision. CMK Sakae 21 Motor - only if ground crew would come CMK Weapon bays A6M3 - not likely CMK Rear conus A6M3/A6M5 - not likely, new Tamiya looks correct to me CMK Cockpit - most likely not Big Ed A6M3 - already HGW Seatbelts Zero - not really, pilot has the belts molded on Scale Aircraft Conversions Metal Gear struts - quite sure use, I always have a stability problem with plastic struts when transporting to shows SBS Model Seat - nope Squadron Vacform canopy - likely True Details Wheels - sure Techmod A6M3 "Aces" decal - sure For the diorama I got CMK Ground crew (winking) CMK Saburo Sakai IJN Pilot PJ Productions IJN Pilot Tamiya Kurogane 4x4 jeep Tamiya Komatsu G40 Bulldozer Barrels, crates, etc from different kits. The plan is to make an aircraft coded T2-165 in a highly weared green over the IJN glossy faded grey green. This machine was a mitsubishi build A6M3 Mod. 22, so mitsubishi specific coloring applies. It was a part of 204 Kokutai activities in the Solomons in 1943, based on Rabaul and Buin. It was mostly flown by the top ace Shoichi Sugita. Shoichi Sugita was one of the 6 pilots who were escorting Admiral Yamamoto's Betty when P-38 Lightnings ambushed the group and shot down both Betties, killing Yamamoto. Sugita shot down one of the Lightnings, but too late to save the admiral. 6 Pilots were ashamed to have failed, and swore an oath to fight the enemy with no respect for their own life. In a few months, 4 were killed, and another went home after loosing an arm, only Sugita remaining. He was respected as the most agressive japanese pilot, and shot down between 70 and 120 aircraft. He was injured a few times, but returned to action, fighting over Truk, Peleliu, Phillipines and japanese mainland. In 1945 he was a part of the elite 301 Hikotai, 343 Kokutai, which was commanded by Minoru Genda and flew the brand new N1K2-J George to a devastating effect (most likely my next build ). However, on 15. April 1945 US carrier Hellcats from VF-46, led by Robert "Doc" Weatherup, struck the airfield. Despite the order to get in cover from Genda, Sugita and his wingman Miyazawa ran to their fighters and tried to start, only to be blown to pieces on takeoff by Weatherup. The plane weathering should look like this (its another Zero from the same area) The profile is:
  23. Mark’s 1/48 Tamiya Bristol Beaufighter TF.Mk.X Surprisingly, this is my first ever Tamiya build and it will be interesting to see if the kit engineering lives up to all the hype, especially given that this particular model is held in such high regard with comments including “falls together” and “shake and bake” being quite common, well we’ll see how it fairs in the hands of a very average modeller. For the GB I intend to build the kit as supplied but with the addition of some scratch built detailing for the interior, possibly the rockets and rails, torpedo plus cradle, and the engines. What I do hope however is to try out some new to me painting and weathering techniques which hopefully a larger model such as this will allow even me to do. I have decided to complete the kit as the 236 Squadron example; NT950 ‘MB-T’ with invasion stripes, mainly because I’ve never done a model in such a scheme before plus I have an ICM 1/48 Mustang Mk.III in the stash which has a similar (316 Sqn. Polish) scheme and it would be nice to display them (eventually) side by side.
  24. Well, a first attempt at a bike build! With a massive lack of mojo from aircraft building late last year, I have had thought about a bike for some time but couldn't find something that took my eye, until this was sitting on the shelf of a LMS. Built entirely out of the box. Moltaw liquid chrome used (wonderful stuff indeed!) as well as Tamiya paints. 20171129_094711-1 by Arthur Dent, on Flickr 20171128_143911-1 by Arthur Dent, on Flickr 20171128_143045-1 by Arthur Dent, on Flickr 20171128_142929 by Arthur Dent, on Flickr And a few build shots. 20171128_135756-1 by Arthur Dent, on Flickr 20171127_223217-1 by Arthur Dent, on Flickr 20171126_120631-1 by Arthur Dent, on Flickr 20171122_220520-1 by Arthur Dent, on Flickr 20171122_220417-1 by Arthur Dent, on Flickr This was a very enjoyable build which thoroughly restored enthusiasm for modelling. A lovely kit! Hope you like.
  25. I'm sending TIGER I photos. The Tamiya model is 1/35 scale. For the winter camouflage I used the "hair spray"
