  1. Hey, I might blow a gasket, I'm on a bit of a buildathon at the moment after a too long break. Feeling too enthusiastic and hurried. Maybe I will do a slow detail by detail build thread - I don't know if people want to see that. I usually wack up a few pictures, sort of beginning, middle and end. Anyhow - practice makes perfect, well I thought it should make it better at least. With my second hand but proper little compressor my airbrush has taken on a new life. A little preview of what is coming up. It's green, it has a white star and tracks - then it's a lot of fun to build! - Madame, pouvez-vous m'indiquer le chemin vers Paris - Mais Monsieur il y a un panneau!
  2. This is my latest completion, built for the Matchbox II GB which ended recently. A mainly OOB build with the addition of Pavla's Resin update set for Cockpit and Nose Wheel Bay, then completed with HATAKA's Orange Line US Navy and US Marine 'High Viz' paint set and the kit decals. Rockwell T-2C Buckeye VT-19, U.S. Navy NAS Meridian 1975 1/72 Revell (Re-box of Matchbox PK42) by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr
  3. Here is my finished Revell Luftwaffe Tornado of Reconnaissance squadron 51 in its "Black Panther" scheme worn to the 2011 Tiger Meet. built out of the box other than the crew from my spares box and the stand, this is a great kit anyway with plenty of detail and minimal work needed to make it al fit together. Painted in Tamiya paints, the silver tiger stripes should have been a bit darker, but I'm not too worried as they stand out . I was a bit nervous with the decals as ive had some issues with revell in the past, but the colour is great and they are nice and thick. The decal sheet needs some studying before tacking them and it was fun figuring out the best order to build and paint this. It really stands out on the shelf and I may have to collect all the special scheme tornados CSC_0142 by matt wellington, on Flickr CSC_0143 by matt wellington, on Flickr CSC_0144 by matt wellington, on Flickr CSC_0145 by matt wellington, on Flickr CSC_0147 by matt wellington, on Flickr CSC_0146 by matt wellington, on Flickr CSC_0148 by matt wellington, on Flickr CSC_0149 by matt wellington, on Flickr Some prior to the stores being added. The only issue with this is you loose the movable pylons as they are added after the decals. Not so much of an issue as it was being displayed in flight at 67degrees so they are glued in place now.. 20180215_171338 by matt wellington, on Flickr 20180215_171506 by matt wellington, on Flickr 20180215_171440 by matt wellington, on Flickr
  4. Hi Folks, back again after a house move, have been modelling but not had chance to set up a photo area(still not really finished, hence the poor shots, for a whilwe anyway!). During the house move as I was shifting my finished models I noticed this. I'd dismissed it at the time as not good enough to pass muster for RFI, but on refelection have changed my mind, hence these shots of a two year old build. I re-did the exhausts as they were wrong ......and probably still are . Also some RPL's were erased and re-scribed(badly....not one of my strong points!) Anyway here it is, not many pics so shouldn't be too painful. Queries and criticism welcome. Paints are Vallejo Model Air IIRC. Cheers, Nige.
  5. Calling this one done. Was quite a big struggle for me at times... Mainly due to it's size alone. I broke off almost all the guns during the painting... All in all I really enjoyed the kit. The interior is nicely detailed, as are the engines. I had some real issues with getting the engines lined up inside the nacelles, but I think it just about turned out OK. The 4 colour paint job was a big jump for me - and due to my using Belton rattle cans (which come in an amazing variety of colours - but can be very thick) some of the surface details were lost under coats. I am quite happy with how the camo looks, but on reflection would have liked to make the sand / sky blotches a little more intricate. I used the box decals - with larger markings I sanded them a bit before applying them, which made it easier to chip at them with a sharp blade once microsol was on. Part of me wishes I had bought aftermarket decals for the actual unit... Was largely built OOB except for some wiring added to the gear, and some scratched details for the cockpit... I mainly enjoyed experimenting with varying acrylic shades on the interior and legs... WIP thread is here for those interested in my shambolic work along the way! Thanks for looking! Bruce
  6. Well now, here we are again. Not so sure how frequently I will update but this will get us started. I have a very very soft spot for the Matchbox / Revell kits in 1/76. I find so many good things about them. One is the build time and the variety. Some kits don't have a figure, but usually a figure one or more vehicules and a mini diorama. I still find the vehicules and the figures the biggest challenge. Here's a little sequence of the Humber dio. Just 4 parts. Needed some filler on the edges of the wall. I did a black white contrast base using vallejo (thinned with water) and Tamiya (IPA). After the colour coat some Tamiya panel liner and then dry brushes lighter and lighter shades. Finally some white highlights and I began to add a bit of tone with some oils. The wall isn't done yet.
  7. Revell 1/48 Tornado intakes

    I have read numerous build threads here and elsewhere on the Revell Tornado kits, but none of them seem to show how perfect (or at least reasonable) inner intake seams were achieved, nor do they explain how. Having started my F.3 I came to the conclusion that intake covers would best be fitted to it, but with another three GR.1/4s and an IDS in the stash I would like to know if - and how - it is possible to get rid of those nasty seams. So, did any of you guys ever succeed in eliminating the intake seams? TIA, Jens
  8. What can I say, well something really had an effect on me a few weeks ago and I've noticed that I really want to leave my scruffy models behind and move on. Got a decent compressor, a brush that I feel I can use and some different glue. So I hope that we will see a change from here. Up next will be a tidier Humber: simpler diorama, only one vehicule and one half figure. I am sure spring will come sometime and deliver us from this long lasting cold spell. I wanted to capture the early evening light in the desert. The decals are from the kit so NZ, not correct for PPA but I almost got them on straight, even the one that came in 3 parts, (which I put on in the wrong place, doh) thanks Matchbox! Quite a lot of work building up the Chevy and I stupidly stuck everything in the back before painting. My effort to make a canvas roll from a bit of chiseled sprue is not too good, but will do for now. Hopefully see you again when I get my Humber build up.
  9. porsche 918 spyder

    Made a start on this gorgeous little thing. Revell kit 07026. Engine decorated in a mix of Alclads Polished Aluminium, White Aluminium and Steel. Added some tiny bits of AK Interactive Grey Kriegsmarine wash. Tis German after all. And stripped wheels and gave them a coat of Alclad jet exhaust and dabbed Polished Aluminium on the fronts with a make-up sponge. Kinda worked how I wanted it to. I get the feeling this one will be a rather enjoyable build.
  10. I did start a WIP thread on this project but it’s been such a traumatic build that I quite frankly lost the will to carry on. However, I did finally complete the car and without doubt it has been an experience I wouldn’t really like to repeat. Experiencing the huge amount of flash, bad mouldings, things not lining up, poor quality plastic, shocking fit of parts etc. etc. has seen my patience tested to the max and many, many curses uttered! As a result I’m now calling it “job done” as I want to move on to a new project. I realise It’ll never win any prizes for quality of build, but it has assembled into a pretty little hotrod and has been a valuable learning experience, even if not always fun. It’s the first time I’ve airbrushed Humbrol enamel and also Alclad Chrome, and I’m fairly satisfied with the results, but I know areas in which I can improve the process. As a point of interest perhaps, the pinstripe around the upholstery is a thin strip of ‘Bare Metal’ chrome foil painted the same colour as the car and simply burnished into position. In my opinion this option is a much simpler solution than trying to mask and paint directly onto the upholstery. Finally, the carpet is very thin, fine felt from a craft shop fixed in place with PVA. Anyway, here are some pictures of the car and any constructive criticism is gratefully accepted.
  11. Ooof, I don't think I have posted anything, actually for that matter I don't think, if I'm not mistaken, I have put anything together for about 9 months now. Tidied up my model area and just got a half decent compressor (Edward the Compressor I call him). I think I am slowly beginning to understand the different materials and how to use them. I still have a very heavy hand and am too messy. Spend a lot of time fixing silly mistakes. Also got some decent glue. So I feel this will be a pivot point and hopefully the last of my messy builds. Not finished yet, got the jeep to do, I will use the box decals even though they are for NZ (so not historically acurate for the PPA), still I was dying to get something up, builds a bit of morale. Will start another small build thread soon - next up will be the Humble Humber and if I make an effort it will be somewhat tidier. Thanks again for all YOUR inspiring work which is so encouraging!
  12. So here it is, warts'n'all. WIP is there : Hope you like it, S.
  13. Here is my build log for my Revell 1:24 1953 Corvette Roadster: Obligatory Sprue Shots Kit copyright 1982! Almost as old as me! Engine slapped together: And the Chassis: For this build, I'm going to try and assemble as much as I can, then paint, rather than painting every single piece individually, and ending up with a paintey glue mess when assembling! The carbs in some bleach, to remove the kit chrome plating:
  14. A BIG Typhoon coming

    I have already announced my intent to do two 1/72 Hurricanes but I figured I might as well tell you part 2. I will try to build the Revell, 1/32 Typhoon. Ordered some replacement decals (noticed the damage on the ones I have) and I will give this beast a try as my second Group Build kit. Greg in OK
  15. Hi all, my first post here, just wanted to share my in progress BAC/Aerospatiale Concorde, currently at the main paint stage. This is actually my first airliner, having only done fighters up until now in 1/72 scale, but it won't be my last, after this comes a Lockheed L-1011 Tristar, in the same livery. Hopefully at least. Enjoy the photos for now Turns out I haven't worked out to add an attachment yet! I'll keep working on it...
  16. Hey everyone, have been working on this for a month or so now, you can find the WIP here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235031236-revell-platinum-1144-uss-fletcher/&tab=comments Thank you all for stopping by, think I will be taking on Takom's Chieftain next!
  17. Revell PT 109 New tool

    Revell have announced the PT 109 (Early 80' Elco) for release Feb/March # An improvement but it's not going to set the world on fire... I don't think JohnWS need fear the competition Kev
  18. It's one of my all-time favourite aeroplanes and not one that I've ever managed to build properly - so why not try and do one in a week? Yes, it's the Gloster Gladiator as my second and final entry in this GB. My first attempt at a Gladiator was with the old tool Airfix kit. It went together OK but looked rather anorexic. My second attempt at a Gladiator was the 1/48 Roden Sea Gladiator which collapsed into a gluey blancmange. Third time lucky? Let's hope so with the old Matchbox kit repopped by Revell: If my Hawker Fury was anything to go by, I hope that this will be a confidence-building experience. I've got all manner of decals for Gladiators but given the time available I'm going to stick with an all-silver pre-war scheme. The question is: which one? All have their merits and all will be done at some point. As I've done the silver-and-yellow Fury I feel it would be quite nice to come up with something that complements it. I fell in love with the Gladiator as a small boy on my first visit to The Shuttleworth Collection when their example was in 72 Sqn colours, so that has appeal... ... but the 73 Sqn scheme of 'Cobber' Kain that Shuttleworth's Gladiator wears today is a lot more attractive to my eye, and I've got those decals in the new tool Airfix kit... ...and then there's the 87 Sqn scheme that is in my Pavla upgrades box... ...and as a final choice there's the 3 Sqn decals which come with the Revell kit. It's plain silver all over but I love the art deco '3' for the tail. So while I'm getting on with building a standard silver Gladiator I'm going to throw this one open to the floor with a poll. Which scheme would you like to see in the Gallery next weekend? All thoughts gratefully received.
  19. Finally finished and photographed my Revell Dambuster as "G" flown by Wing Commander Guy Gibson VC, DSO & DFC. This has been on and off for months, but no idea why it has taken so long but mostly an enjoyable build. Only issue was silvering of the wing decals, but I trimmed them down once they had set. Built out of the box and painted using a mix of Revell, humbrol and Tamiya paints. I wish I could have kept the matt black finish for the lower half, but I don't think the decals would have stuck. Ive been waiting for a nice day to photograph it, but when getting it off the shelf I dropped it snapping the rear wheel, hence why its a bit wonky!

  20. Twenty year old Revell kit, and not a bad one too. Wanted a contemporary look without changing the 'structure' too much, so de-chromed throughout, faired-in and cut down bumpers front & rear, steering wheel from a Tamiya R34, the rest is just paint. Tamiya Gunmetal, polished & buffed, not clear coated, a dark red interior which I carried through to the outside accents and finall a little carbon-fibre decalling on the valence. Ta Daaaa !! Wheels & tyres are 18" SA-70s from Aoshima and just don't look right. I'll replace them with 16" when I can, also need to source some brake discs, there's a set in the R34 spares but I'll need to perform a fair bit of surgery to get them to fit the Revell axles. Hope you like it, AFN Ian.
  21. Hi to all in this strange neck of the woods. I don't build many cars - and certainly not up to the standard that you guys do Here's my stab at Revell's 1/25 '69 Corvette Coupe. I used Humbrol Multi-Effect Gold for the coachwork.
  22. 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.

  23. Hawker Fury Mk.I

    Well, Matchbox was always fêted for its bipes so here we go with a rather breathless build of the lovely old Fury. This could go one of two ways... Here is the kit: Time to read the instructions... quickly!
  24. My entry for this Group Build is as the title says: a 1/144 Revell DC-10 finished in British Caledonian livery as G-DCIO with decals from Ray at 26. So that's two references to the tenth anniversary via the aircraft type and also its registration Box shot and first fill on windows: The rest of the parts: and finally the decals: I'm intending to build with no afterparts or any major surgery - if the shape is slightly "off" anywhere I can live with it. Regards Mike
  25. Hi, This model was built (some years ago now) out of the box with no attempt to change the engines and knowingly aware of the kit's issues. Possibly if I were making the kit now I would address the issues but that being said I am quite happy with the result...anyway, here it is. The Halifax has been painted as DG221 'EY-A' of 78 Squadron flown by W/C Tait on operations against Genoa, 23rd October 1942 I hope you like it, Russ
