  1. Whats not to like about this kit, it falls together, except for the numpty who put the wrong cowl on the front canopy, too late I'd used liquid poly Built oob, with a spare set of eduard belts I had. Gunz/Tamiya paints, thinned with Cellulose thinner Going to make a stand using the Eduard psp when I get the stuff together, still waiting for some static grass to arrive, made a cheap static grass applicator from an electric insect killer and tea strainer so will see if that works Capt Walker Maurin,56th FG 63rd FS, Halesworth UK 1944

  2. Here another project, a Mirage III CJ Eduard 1/48 Weekend Edition. The model does not bring photogravures, resins, masks or other things, just the plastic and that's it. Even the assembly instructions are on recycled paper and the placement of the decals is printed on the box. Like almost everything is in good manufacturing Eduard. I hope you enjoy it Keep in touch. . . . . . . .

  3. Well i have stepped away from my usual 1/32 comfort zone and delving into the smaller scale of 1/48 , specifically the 1/48 Testors YF-12A I bought this kit about 6 years ago and it was pretty rare then but you can not accurately turn the standard SR-71 into a YF-12A, there are too many differences in contour and shape in the forward fuselage section alone. I have to admit this it was with some reservation I broke the sealing film on the box as there is no way back then. I could hear the collectors cries from my study, I calmed myself with the knowledge I buy models to build not to horde in

  6. Here are some untouched, fluff and all slide scans taken by my Grandfather. The box they were in said Brawdy Air Display 1966. Beyond that I know nothing else. Apparently I met him once when I was about 2 so never knew he had an interest in aircraft When I have time i'll sit and retouch some to remove the fluff. Cheers Chris

  7. Not much to say about this kit it's already been said, though for me it didn't quite fall together and I had some issues with the pit tub fuse join and wing roots! Still I'm happy with it and they really have nailed the look of the IX. Had to do the box art markings, gotta love a Spit with nose art! All OOB, (why would you need anything else, even the exhaust stacks are beautifully moulded). Hope you like it. On the flight line with 2 of her sisters

  8. I started building the Eduard model last year. When the new model Yak-3 by Zvezda appeared, I lost my initial enthusiasm. But now, I've decided to finish it. Yak-3 Lt.Col. Ivan V. Maslow waiting for your opinions

  11. Hi guys. I have just put on the last things and I can call it Finished. There are some bugs in this model, but after you are passed these it becomes a nice kit. Aspecialy the nose was a horrible fit. I put on the landing gear afterwards and that didn't go very well. Next time I build one I will put the whole landing gear in at last including the fire wall. I also managed to brake of the pitot tube. I fabricated a new one from some brass tubing and brass wire. Here are some pictures. The best ones will be placed in the Galery. I hope you guys like the model. Cheers,

  12. Shock, horror, Stop Press. The Red Arrows are to fly Reapers Drones controlled from someone's garden shed. In a new round of Defence cuts it was announced this morning that along with their regular duties of distracting Tree Huggers and Hippies and irritating peasant goat herders in far off lands 13 Sqn, currently operating the highly advanced and multi functional Reaper Killer Drones are also to be tasked with putting on crowd pleasing aerobatic displays for the long suffering UK tax payers this season.

  13. This is my second attempt at a WW1 aircraft in 1/48th scale and I finished it shorty after hearing of the sad death of John Day, a member of the Great War Display Team, and whose flying, along with that of the other team members, was responsible for generating my interest in building WW1 aircraft and joining the Great War Special Interest Group. Hopefully the team will carry on and pay tribute to John by doing so. The model is the Eduard Weekend Edition of the Eindecker E.II / E.III and is built out-of-the-box. I managed to put one of the decals in the wrong place on the wing, but other than

  14. Hawkmania continues at the 72 Land production facility. This is the slightly revised Airfix T1. Mods that I know of include a one-piece canopy, no HUDs in the cockpit, a re-tooled thinner exhaust can, and wing fences that are now molded onto the wing rather than separate. Still a fine building experience. This is completed model #429 (#10 for the year), finished in April of 2013.

  18. Hi Everyone, Heard a rumour (and I hope I`ve not been the victim of an elaborate hoax) on another site that Revell are going to release this baby later this year,so I thought I`d show you an earlier attempt I did of the kit. It`s about 90% from the box, done to represent a version from the early days of the Vietnam war Decals are all from the stash With cowl shutters and weapons from unused items from a Tamiya kit Undercarraige legs from my lads Esci kit Scratch built a new instrument panel, tarted the seats up a bit, emptied the `blue room` and put some flack curtains a

  19. Hi mates, here is my latest project, the Spitfire Mk. I as seen in summer of 1938. This started out as an out-of-the-box build, but of course that didn't last long.

  20. This model seems to be cursed... As if it doesn't want to be assembled. Seriously, it fell from the table, like, three times, so I had to do most puttying over and over (and over!!) again... But finally, new motivation for this build is found. Most work except puttying was concentrated on detailing the cockpit area, since the canopy will be posed open That straight rail, which guides the sliding part is almost impossible to make in 1/72nd... ALMOST... One fatal flaw for most kits in this scale (including this one) are the wings, which are too thin. Sin

  22. Stunning Arnie, really like the way you have broken the black up and got a nice dusty worn look. Didnt realise the old airfix kit could be built up so nicely, looking forwards to seeing the PR.XVI complete

  27. Also, VERY nicely done example of a 1.44 with a paintjob that isn't just the same ole prototype airframe. It is a cool looking aircraft, but the paintjob Mig did for it looks a bit boring to my eye. This gives it a nice bit of character... a 21st century paintjob for a 21st century airplane.

  36. Nick, I appreciate your frustration, but I think a better response would be to leave the (much better) evidence in view and allow nature to take its course. It's already clear that others are doing a fine job of demolishing the "alternative approaches".

  37. Finally, masked off the wing, elevator and tail fin leading edges, to apply the Model Master Aluminum. Then, tack on the small parts, including the flaps, elevators, landing gear, windshield and canopy, two 500 lb bombs and add the 5" rockets, painted aluminum with olive drab heads, the typical colors for Korean war aerial rockets, and another Grumman Cat is ready to add to the collection. Thanks for viewing !!
