  1. Just finished. Absolute dog of a kit, not too sure if it was me or the kit, maybe a bad run, but it fought me all the way. Poor fit in many places including the radiator, wings to fuselage and cockpit pieces. I was very close to giving it up at many times but I'm happy in the long run I didn't. Build OOB with the exception of a QB seat and True Details wheels. Thanks for looking.
  2. #5/2018 When German bomber pilots converted to the 262, they started to train on old trainers and biplanes, then usually moved on to 109s before they got to fly the Schwalbe. Partly these 109s were also used for combat with the KG(J)s. Sadly there is only one pic of "white 4" that shows it after it was shot down. In earlier years this machine was designated as a G-10. But there is a partial Werknummer known which is from an Erla G-14 block. Then there is discussion if it´s a normal G-14 or a G-14/AS. My dad went for a G-14. On the pic you can see a sharp edged light grey quadrant on the fuselage side in front of the cockpit. https://translate.google.at/translate?hl=de&sl=cs&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.leteckabadatelna.cz%2Fhavarie-a-sestrely%2Fdetail%2F534%2F&sandbox=1 That was usually the case when the bulge there was removed, either by mechanics or by force, like here: https://me109.info/display.php?from=site〈=de&auth=e&name=version_display&fotonummer=12757 Build thread here: Hasegawa kit with Cutting Edge decals, Gunze and Tamiya acrylics, EZ Line for antenna wire DSC_0001 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0002 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0003 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0004 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0005 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0006 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0007 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0008 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0009 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0010 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0011 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0012 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0013 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0014 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0015 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0017 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0018 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
  3. China Dog

    I saw this scheme on a 1/48 build on another forum and was really taken with it. This is the 1/72 Hasegawa kit, a really straightforward and enjoyable kit.
  4. QF-104A

    Intended for the Starfighter STGB but finished a few days past deadline - build here An old mould Hasegawa F-104J which started out as a build in Japanese colours with some scratch building in the cockpit and wheel wells. Unfortunately the near 40 year old decals fell to pieces (I know. Foolish of me to think they’d do otherwise). Kit was halfway toward the shelf of doom (or the bin) when I decided to see what I could do from spare bits and bobs of decals. Some modifications to change a F-104J into a Q-104A and some scrabbling around the internet for references and here we have it as per (the resolution isn’t great but that gave me some leeway for improvising with my cobbled together decals) http://www.916-starfighter.de/916starfighter/pics/camo/55-2957 QF-104A 52957 AFSC Eglin 1964.jpg History (& fate) here http://www.i-f-s.nl/f-104-miscellaneous/qf-104-drones/
  5. I am a big fan of Japanese twin engine bombers and the Nell in particular I think is a great looking aircraft. Build was usual Hasegawa - perfect fit and no dramas to speak of. Paints used were Vallejo Japanese set for top and Mr Color for underside. In the cabinet: With his IJN friends....
  6. Good morning to all! I'm glad to present my last work... a restoration of an old Hasegawa A-4 that I built ten years ago. I decided to put it back to workbench due to the "crack" of the fuselage: 21616109_10210113589216277_2086911637920727775_n by valerio, su Flickr While I was at it, I scratchbuilt a new UHF dorsal hump (the one in the Hasegawa kit is wrong in dimensions and shape) using the cutting plotter: A-4SU Restoration_11 by valerio, su Flickr A-4SU Restoration_10 by valerio, su Flickr There was other details to fix, like a small naca intake on the main right engine intake, but the model was almost assembled and was very difficul to add this new parts.

  7. From the Tintin book 'The Red Sea Sharks'. It's the Hasegawa 1/72 Mossie kit with (heavily modified) Blue Rider decals. Depicting it in flying mode meant closing the undercarriage doors, which required a lot of filling/sanding. The only other deviation from the kit instructions was the re-configured nose gun arrangement, and I added Skut the pilot. My figure painting ability is – appropriately – comical, but he looks OK under glass.
  8. Second kit off the workbench this month; this is the mount of Japanese Army ace, Captain Yoshio Yoshida from mid 1945: FredT
  9. Hi all, Here are some (quite a few actually!) pictures of my latest build, it's Hasegawa's well know 1/48 F-104 Starfighter finished in the markings of 202 Hikotai when playing the role of an aggressor for one of their annual Air Combat Meets. These ACM's have produced some very nice and unusual colour schemes and it was difficult to decide which one to build, suffice to say that there will be a few more in the future. Anyway here are the pictures. Here is a link to the WIP and whilst you are there have a look at the other great builds going on in the GB. Thanks for looking in and all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Craig.
  10. Tropical Hellcat

    Hello Everyone ... Been busy over in the group builds lately but i havent forgotten that i build things with wings. I’ve been finishing up some models in my down time from the group build stuff. This is Hasegawa’s F6F Hellcat which i started last fall but just got around to finishing yesterday. I chose to do it in the markings of a Hellcat from VF-33 on Espirtu Santo in late 1943. I found the marking scheme while looking at an Eduard Hellcat, and yes i have a photo as well. Though I didn't have exact markings i was able to find spares in the same style. So without further talk I present to you my Hellcat. Heres a photo of the cockpit during the build. And for those that are curious, heres the photo from WW2.🔺 I truly hope everyone like this, and as usual please feel free to leave comments, questions, or jokes. Have a great modeling day. Dennis 🔺* not sure if this is public record so i will state the ownership rights belong to others. I only use them for informational purposes. If i have to i will remove them.
  11. Finished this over on the KUTA X GB, was started over 25 years ago, a little bit of the story can be read in the GB. Only addition to kit parts were Eduard fabric belts. Finished in Vallejo ModelAir colours, Alclad II gloss varnish with Vallejo Matt top varnish. Techmod decals were not the best I've used, very thin but brittle.
  12. Another Beaufighter. To complement the versions from Tamiya (Mark's), Airfix (John's) and Frog (Steve's), I am going for the Hasegawa kit. As Hasegawa kits are just a tad expensive, I decided to use one that I had in the stash from a few years' back - a combo from Operation Overlord. This is the box top:- The Spitfire will be kept for another occasion..... These are the sprues:- And the transparencies sprue:- Luckily, this boxing includes the metal hedgehog exhausts (which many of the Hasegawa kits don't have). I am going to try my hand with some aftermarket accessories for this build (first time I have ever done a resin cockpit set!) And yes, I realise that not a lot will be seen....but I will know it will be there (as will anyone reading this thread...!) As the title indicates, I am going to finish this kit with more unusual decals - in Israeli colours, on the familiar British desert camo. This is one of four Beaufighters that were smuggled out from the UK to the newly formed state of Israel, in 1948, and were used quite effectively for some months against invading arab forces. The desert camo was because the aircraft were purchased on the basis that they were to be in a film, a ruse used to procure the war surplus planes. They were flown out from an RAF airfield in Haddenham, Oxfordshire, supposedly to fly to Scotland for the filming, but instead flew on to Europe, and then on to Israel, before anyone realised what was going on. This particular aircraft, one of two involved from Israel's 103 Squadron, was shot down in an attack on the Eqyptian-held fortress of Iraq-El-Suweidan in the Negev on October 20th 1948. More in a day or two..... Philip
  13. Hasegawa 1/48 plus Eduard, Master and CMK resin. Camo - Major Edward Rector - Flying Tigers - 76 F.S. 23 F.G. China july 1942.
  14. Hi folks, Over tea with a modelling mate yesterday. I have decided to start this as my first build for 2018 as our local modelling chapter is doing a phantom g/b mid year. Nice kit all recessed, will be going oob with the exception of resin seats. Deleted. Not the wanted area will start tommorow with the cockpit. rgds brian
  15. After the Apache, my dad now starts another Desert Storm project. An USMC Harrier using the sadly oob Hasegawa kit. The kit decals weren´t usable anymore so gonna use some from EagleStrike. DSC_0003 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0004 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
  16. Hello mates, This is a test if i can receive any reaction at this time (t-online.de). I will be busy for the Nuremberg Toy Fair soon, but after, if you like, i will make more pictures for you of my quite ripe missy, more than 18 years old now... Cheers, Thomas
  17. Here's my first completion of 2018 (though really it is the last completion of 2017); the 1/72 new tool Hasegawa Kawanishi H8K2 Emily, representing an aircraft of the 801st Naval Flying Group of the Imperial Japanese Navy: The kit was built almost entirely OOB - it even included canopy masks for the main glazing though I did buy the Eduard mask set for the little fuselage windows, because I am very, very lazy. The kit transfers were used to represent the third option provided with the kit. The undersides were finished in Alclad Semi-matt Aluminum with the doped fabric parts represented using Citadel Runefang Steel; the uppersurfaces using Colourcoats ACJ01 IJN D1 Deep Green Black, with the doped fabric surfaces painted using the same colour mixed with a little ACJ18 IJN Interior Olive Green. The floats were rigged using Infini Lycra thread. A meandering build thread is here. Cheers, Stew
  18. Hello Guys! This is to make Mike a Tiger II That is is the second one from 2004. I changed the odd 20 "5", the mouth and did some detailing. Code was changed from AM to AD hastily. Longnose was a shorter fun to build, because easier OOB (Sorry, i couldn't resist.) Tarmac is the same joke too.... Cheers, Thomas
  19. Hi guys, I'd like to present to you another masterpiece build my my friend Akira Watanabe (some may remember his Wessex I posted on here a while ago). It's an F-104G, Belgian Air Force, 1:32, based on the Hasegawa kit with many modifications. It fits in well with the current F-104 theme on Britmodeller. I've had the pleasure of seeing the model in person twice, once while still in the building stages in Spring and then completed in Autumn last year. It's absolutely amazing and full of great ideas and techniques. For instance, the whole rear fuselage, the nose cone and wing tanks and under wing pylons are attached by magnets and everything can come off for safe transport in a cleverly designed carrier box!! It can also be displayed in two completely different configurations, as a target tow aircraft or with four tanks and practice bomb dispenser. Here is the link to the build with extensive in-progress descriptions: http://nabe3saviation.web.fc2.com/modelF104.html and the main website: http://nabe3saviation.web.fc2.com/index.html Cheers Jeffrey
  20. My last build for 2017 is a commission from the navigator of XV426 which flew with 56sqn RAF. The scheme is from the final scheme of the aircraft including the red cockpit surround which was added by the Norwich Aviation Museum who now owns the cockpit section of the aircraft. Using the excellent, but now dated Hasegawa FGR 2 kit along with Eduard cockpit set. Painting was done using Vallejo air and the decals were a mixture of kit and spares. The Spooky II mascot is a 9G mm figure by aerobonus.
  21. Photo Etch Detail Sets for Hasegawa P1Y Frances/Ginga 1:72 Eduard Eduard seem to be busy enough keeping up with all the new releases from the likes of Airfix, Revell, Trumpeter etc., as well as producing their own stuff. Occassionally, however, they find the time to address some of the omissions from their not-inconsiderable catalogue of aftermarket goodies. This is the case with this new set of photo etched parts and masks for Hasegawa's P1Y Frances. I still think of the Hase Frances as a modern kit - and I suppose it is - but even I must admit I was slightly surprised when I checked back and found the kit was first produced about 20 years ago. How time flies! P1Y Frances/Ginga The set is a classic slice of Eduard, with two frets used to cover the entire airfame. The first set is pre-painted and includes a lot of parts for the cockpit. Included are parts for detailing the instrument panel and sidewalls, as well as throttle controls, radio gear and harnesses for the crew seats. The second fret is much larger and includes detailed liners for the inside of the fuselage around the cockpit, as well as parts for detailing the landing gear, bomb racks, bomb bay doors and the ballistic tails of the bombs themselves. Ignition wiring for the radial engines is also included on this fret. P1Y Frances/Ginga Zoom Set The zoom set contains the first fret from the above set, with a correspondingly lower price tag. Ideal for those who want to jazz the cockpit up without spending a lot of money. P1Y Frances/Ginga Pre-Cut Masks In the usual Eduard style, this set includes masks for the canopy and both the main and tail wheels. Sometimes these sets are a bit of a luxury, but in the case of the Frances, it's almost essential thanks to the intricate framework of the canopy. Conclusion If you have Hasegawa's kit of this sleek and handsome aircraft, then you'll be able to move it to the top of the 'to do' pile thanks for Eduard's handy new sets. The masks in particular are a very welcome time saver. Recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  22. #1/2018 And the beat goes on, lalalalala... My dad´s first finished model in 2018. Hasegawa kit, painted with Gunze and Tamiya acrylics, EZ Line for antenna, Ultracast wheels. After starting with the kit decals and the tulip leaves, my dad and I realized, that Hasegawa got them wrong, there are not 6 but 7 leaves on the upper cowl part. So I bought a LifeLike decal sheet to use them for the tulip. Build thread here The model shows the Fw190 equipped with the two-time supercharging compressor and airintakes for high altitude fighting of Hermann Graf, Ergänzungs-Jagdgruppe-Ost in France 1943.

  23. Started on the 23rd, one of two quick'n easy 'Holiday Builds', simply because I can ! Hasegawa's still excellent Miura, built as it comes from the box with no additions. WiP pics here: Bodyshell is good old Humbrol enamels mixed by eye, interior is also my own mixes using Tamiya acrylics. Please feel free to make any comments, criticism or ask any any questions - yes I've fixed the (French) license plate since I took the photos. Stay tuned friends and all the very best for 2018. Ian.
  24. So you've seen that my BIG car project for the New Year is a Revell C5-R, but alongside that I'm doing two quick & fun builds over the holidays just because I can !!. First one is the still excellent Hasegawa Lamborghini Miura.... to mis-quote Jeremy Clarkson: "...possibly the most beautiful looking car... in the world" Seam lines rubbed & polished away and already primed to cover that shouty bright red plastic: Hopefully at the end of it all it will look a LOT like this beauty: Stay tuned, folks. Ian.
  25. My dad is still on a 109 run, just finshed the Graf 109K now he has already started a new one. Gonna do a G-14 which was used in KG(J)54 for pilot training (KG(J)27 is possible too), maybe also for airfield security, later transferred to KG(J)6. Bomber pilots that converted to Me262 usually started training with old biplanes like He46, Go145..., then moved to 109s and the to the 262. DSC_0009 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr wrongly? designated as G-10, if it´s true a (partial) Werknummer is know which would be an Erla G-14 block DSC_0011 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr and already half on the way DSC_0010 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
