  1. Hello All! This was easily the worst kit ever that passed through my hands. Typical short rub with a lot of pitfalls. In the end, i even got dust inside the canopy. well... here are the photographs: My best regards!!!!

  2. Hello Friends I started this kits a couple months ago but unfortunately my mom get sick and i didn't had the mood for kits for some time now, fortunately my mother is getting better so im getting better too and i returned to the bench with the Mil Mi-2 that i put here last week. I started here a WIP and i will put there the pictures that i took, for now i will show it already done. I didnt find many references pictures (only some in museums showing new aircrafts) so i didn't make it very very dirty... only with some use... I hope you like it, thank you for looking. Best regards from Por

  5. Hi All, This is my first post. I’ve returned to modelling after a break of 12 years, having previously built civil and military aircraft. I have had a lifelong interest in buses, having spent much time travelling on routes around the country. The Revell release inspired me to attempt a build of Routemaster RML 2414. The model in question was delivered in March 1966 to Hemel Hempstead bus garage, to be used on route 347. I have not seen a build of this particular type on Britmodeller so thought it would be an interesting subject. It will be depicted as factory fresh, with no adverts applied, t

  6. Finished this one last night, had been working on and off with it over the last couple of months. the kit is the 1/48 Hasegawa P-38F/G/H built OOB and the decals are from Kagero, it represents the P-38G flown by Rex Barber April 1943

  7. Hello, this is the second AZmodel Spitfire I've finished. Building this kit is not an easy task - some smaller parts have to be adjusted to make them fit, the wing to fuselage joint is poor, and the canopy isn't very clear (even though I used clear cote to enhance transparency). The propeller blades have to be lined up individually - something I never manage to get right .... In endless sanding sessions I erased most of the engraved detail on the inner wing, tried to re-engrave the panel lines but failed due to the amount of filler used (which simply splittered away when trying to restore

  9. Hi, This is the first time me building an aircraft in 1/48 scale. I'm really impressed with the space for detailing, even this kit is very old and simple. I'm very satisfied with the final result. I wanted to be simple, without rivets, more panel lines or anything like that, just OOB. Decals are only from HobbyBoss kit. For me, this was good exercise for another Fresco in my collection! Hope you like this bird! Cheers, Nenad

  10. This has been on and off for a few years now, finally calling it finished and... BIG! Its the Revell 1/48 PBY-5 with a little help from Eduard, Belcher bits and True Details, with Aeromaster Decals, in the markings of FP225 of 240 Sqn RAF that I believe served as Special Duties Flight in the far east during WWII. I had bought this off ebay, only to find it was missing the instructions also finding good reference for British Cat's are few and far between, thankfully a few Britmodellers came to my aid and sent scans. and information, so thanks for that, in particular, to stringbag and JohnT I

  11. My latest distraction from getting on with some overdue GB projects was this quick OOB build for a recent 'Tiger Meet' club competition. The kit is Revell's original 1/144 offering and is, I understand, a pretty poor rendition of an Eagle. The decals were brilliant though (especially those tail markings, that fitted like a dream), and as I won the kit in a raffle I'm not complaining! Would have looked so much better though with some pre-shading...... Cheers Cliff

  13. I finished this off the other week, although only just got round to taking pics of it at the weekend. My first 1/32 aircraft, a real monster of a model compared to what I'm used to, it also took way longer than I expected (over a year ). Its a great kit though, you just need allow a lot more time to do jobs that take not much in 1/48 scale. Its essentially a from-the-box build, but with a Quickboost ejector seat, Aires resin jet exahausts, Eduard etched placards and TwoBobs decals. I've discussed the pros/cons of these extras in the build thread here for anyone interested, but basically the s

  15. I've been doing some tinkering with the interior of the B-29, namely working out the size and position of the interior bulkheads and floors. The two main areas to receive attention first will be the cockpit, containg the two pilots, bombardier, radio operator/engineer and navigator stations. The other will be the rear gunners' station, which is positioned immediately aft of the bomb bay, which includes the master gunner positions and two further gunner areas where the waist observation blisters are positioned. The first job was to construct the basic shapes of these crew areas; the forward a

  16. You can put a stout needle in a pin-vise, Sir, and use this to scribe a line where the rim and tire meets (there is usually something in the piece to guide you at this). The scored line will greatly assist the capillary action.

  17. The best way to do a 720 is the Welsh Models kit. Converting a Minicraft -320 to a 720 is possible, but you'd have to correct literally every part of the model; it's major, major surgery. You may as well start with a Cessna 152 kit and convert that to a 720; the work involved would be about the same.

  21. If we all want a loverly new Lightning from Airfix in the Gentleman's scale, can I suggest the following course of action. We ALL break out our Trumpy/Hase/Frog ones from our collective stashes and start building them. And I mean we go to town on them. Nothing short of total rescribes, scratchbuilt cockpits, correction of every fault and home made vac-form canopies. Then, just as we're presenting them in the RFI section, along comes Airfix with a shiny new one! Mark.

  23. The Front. As usually, a pair of pics of the time to show you the front of the car. The first is the P83 at the presentation, when the tubes from the front radiator were inside the bodywork; the second is the Spence P83 at the 1967 Canadian GP, where the tubes were outside the bodywork: Little change to the radiator. Like the other last MFH kits, also this one has the inside of the radiatory empty, so you can see through. Therefore a little plasticard (then painted aluminium) has to be insterted inside the radiator: On the left the radiator of th

  33. Dear Chris, you really need to take your time with this kit. It may look crisp in the box with all that fine engraved detail and the relative low parts count (ca. 60), but a quick build it ain't. The major problem area is the wing/fuselage joint. The propeller blades need to be assembled individually, which caused a bit of headache regarding the correct angle. A jig would have been very useful. There is no aiming device included in the kit. Even though the canopy is nicely detailed, there is no option to display the cockpit open, as the canopy is a one-piece affair. I also built this F
