    Hello modellers. My last model is done. Modest model and some hard work in the fittings parts. An old traditional Hasegawa 1/72 model. I used Eduard photo etch interior and masks. Tamiya acrilic mixes. I choose JE+HK 2/KG.6 version, found in Melsbroek, Belgium1944. I hope you enjoy it. Cheers!

    I want to post a few pics of my most recent aircraft models. I build in 1/48 only and usually try to photograph them in natural light and surroundings when possible. I've been a bit dormant recently though and haven't built a plane in three years I guess. The last two, the A-6E and Hurricane, were both completed in that period after languishing in production "limbo" for a while. All of them are done in either Model Master or Humbrol enamels with my old Paasche Model H. Here are my last few finished aircraft builds: Hobbycraft Hawker Hurricane IIC Revell Grumman A6-E Intruder Tamiya Douglas F4D-1 Skyray Hobby Boss Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-17F Tamiya Grumman F4F-4 Wildcat Monogram Republic F-84F Thunderstreak Whew! Thanks for bearing with me, and for having a look at the planes!

    I’d like to show you a few new pictures of my model B-17G-40-DL ”Flying Fortress” A/C # 44-6117, LG-Q 'no name' from 322BS / 91BG, depicted as it may have looked during its fifth and last mission on 21st June 1944. The bomber crashed on 21st June 1944 in the lake at Castle Stolzenburg (Stolsko), nt Politz (Police), ca 14 miles NW of the place where I live in Szczecin. The wreckage remains in the lake until today. I dedicate these pictures to the family of one of the airmen onboard the aircraft during the fatal flight - TTG and flight engineer - SSgt Irvin H. Lewis. The pictures of the model from the previous session here on Britmodeller.com brought SSgt I.H. Lewis’s relatives to finding a story about the plane in Lake Stolsko. And this has been totally unexpected but very valuable outcome of my modelling passion. The pictures are deliberately dark - just think about the original plane in the dark waters of the lake - mysterious, isn't it? Thanks guys for watching.

    So I really wanted a Flogger in my collection. The Academy kit was pretty much all I could get my hands on but, knowing the issues with fit and low level of detail, I was hesitant. Ended up biting the bullet after all and steeled myself to expect very little from the build. As expected, the cockpit detail was sparse (and that's being generous) so I stuck a pilot in there after having raised the seat to a more reasonable height, and closed up the canopy. The intakes on both sides of the fuselage had the most horrible fit; these needed large amounts of putty and coarse-grit sanding to shape and smooth the step/join. The main landing gear proved a tricky affair as well, being complex but poorly described in the instructions. I consider it a minor accomplishment achieving good alignment so the model sits evenly on its gear. Being a cheap kit I saw no point to putting in any aftermarket - so this is a completely OOB build. Please excuse the overall grey scheme, it is rather plain. Thanks for looking

    Just finished this one, Italeri's 1/72 SR-71. Built OOB with PJ Production French High Altitude Flight Crew which are excellent, even used the kit decals for the most part worked well. The kit had raised panel lines which I have rescribed, a first for me but went quite well. As its built in flight it only has 38 parts, very low for such a large aircraft. Finished in Tamiya paints.

    Hello fellow modelers, I just joined the forum here and thought I would post a few pics of the only two armor models I've built thus far. Primarily, I've been an aircraft builder in the past thirty years or so but I do find armored vehicles somewhat easier to build. Being rougher in nature than airplanes, mistakes and flaws are easier to hide, and there are no damned canopies to mask! One is the venerable old Tamiya Panther Pzkpfw. V Ausf. A and the other is the Italeri M24 Chaffee light tank. Both are 1/35 scale. The M24 was built first and a couple years later, I added the Panther. These pics were made out at my farm a few years ago. Please excuse my crude attempt to create a cool diorama base for them. I threw the base together in about 10 minutes or so, and it was really just an experiment I guess. I did manage to get a few photos that weren’t too bad. After I had taken about 5 pics the damned battery played out on the camera and I left the card table and base in the pasture and drove back to town to recharge. When I returned a couple hours later, some calves had over-turned the table and messed it up and I had to start over, lol. I did add a few scratch-built details such as the Schurzen plates and mounting hangers on the Panther, jack block on the Panther, the tarps on both tanks, tow cables on both and a fire extinguisher on the Panther. I added engine deck screens on the Panther and drilled out the exhausts as well as adding a bit of battle damage here and there. Please excuse my very amateurish paint work on the Panther’s figures. I debated about adding them or not and probably should have left them off. They do lend a bit of scale to the tank though. So, please just “squint” a bit when viewing them. Gary M-24 Chaffee Pzkpfw. V Ausf. A Panther Thanks for having a look! Hopefully, I'll soon have another to show.

    The model was built straight from the box, except for pitot tubes which are made with Albion alloy tubes. I airbrushed a first coat of Alclad Primer, then a soft preshading and different coats of white. All colours are Gunze expect metallic parts After decals and a coat of clear I did a washing for panel lines, and some filters for weathering with oil colours. The white camouflage was more difficult than I thought! The results is a little bit “orange skin” Decals are from XTradecals sheet Before take photos I forgot to remove the masking tape from underside cockpit windows..... sorry for the background.....

    Not posted for a while due to family issues which are in other threads. This model is on I finished early this year and is one of the 'might have beens' of British military aviation in the late 50's. The P.177 was developed in response to a desire to have a fast climbing fighter that was capable of intercepting transonic Soviet bombers then thought to be under development. It was thought that as bombers flew faster and higher a conventional jet fighter lacked the climb performance to intercept a nuclear armed bomber before it released its weapons and so an aircraft that had to have a climb rate well in excess of any jet. Post war, a lot of studies had been carried out on rocket propelled fighter, probably influenced by the Me163, a number of which had been studied in the UK along with their engines. The problem with pure rocket fighters was although they had rapid climb and high top speeds, they lacked endurance. Saunders Roe carried out studies into these aircraft (perhaps as work dried up when it was realised the Princess flying boat was a dead end) and came up with the idea of using a rocket motor as the means to achieve high speed and climb rates and use a jet as a means of extending range and facilitating a safe return to base as in the SR53. In the P177 , this idea was taken further by the use of a powerful jet engine to sustain performance and allow a carriage of more weapons, radar and fuel. In 1955 prototypes and preproduction aircraft were ordered for the RAF and Royal Navy and interest was shown abroad, particularly from West Germany. Metal was cut and production was underway when Duncan Sandys unleashed his 1957 Defence White Paper that scrapped most manned combat aircraft in favour of guided missiles. The P177 lingered for a while as a purely Naval project and the hope that the Germans might buy it, but was cancelled in early 1958 and the prototypes scrapped. The Germans bought the F104 Starfighter instead. The kit is the original issue from Freightdog with castings by Anigrand. It was reissued last year with new masters and looks a lot cleaner. The kit is all in resin apart from in my issue a vacformed canopy (some kits have resin canopies). A decal sheet with some nice 'what if' schemes are provided. As can be seen below, the resin is tan, cleanly moulded and has a few air bubbles. My main references were 'Project Cancelled' and 'British Experimental Jet Aircraft' The latter has 1/72nd plans that I am pretty sure were used to design the kit Building the model produced a few issues. The interior was pretty much devoid of detail, apart from an ejector seat and stick. Some consoles were on the fuselage sides, but it was left to the modeller to work out where stuff went. Fortunately the canopy is heavily framed so not that much is visible. the fuselage halves were a little bowed, but clamping and two part epoxy resin cured this and the clean up was fairly straightforward. Incidentally, the exterior detail was quite well done with recessed panel lines and intakes. The faring for the rocket motor was a separate piece and required faring in. Both the movable intake (modelled here in ground position) and the jet exhaust needed some work to get them to fit properly. The diameter of the hole in the fuselage for the exhaust was too small and the intake needed cutting back to match the drawings. The wings and fin had locations pins in resin that were replaced by brass rod and horizontal tail slotted on to the fin with little trouble. The canopy more or less fitted after some careful trimming, but bizarrely the frame lines were moulded inside the canopy, which made painting fun (not) . The undercarriage was in the same resin as everything else and so was drilled through and brass rod added as I do not trust ordinary resin to take the weight. The Red Top missiles were replaced by aftermarket Freightdog ones as the originals had some serious airholes that made them well nigh impossible to clean up. After clean up and priming Xtracyrlix Dark Green and Dark Sea Grey were applied to the upper surfaces and Vallejo white Aluminium was applied to the undersurfaces. Kit decals were applied with no problems before a coat of semigloss Vallejo clear varnish was applied. The markings are of 56 Squadron and various probes and aerials were added from plastic strip and thin brass rod . Hope you like

    My latest effort, a Meng 1/48 P-51 built as Mustang IVA KH774, 112 Squadron in early 1945. First off I will be the first to admit it is not my finest work! I wanted a quick, easy build after a couple of tough ones and off court problems and distractions. I built an Airfix Tomahawk a while back and this was a later war companion for it in my collection. The kit was generally excellent - good fit in the main and nice details. I filled the wing rivets, added a few wires in the cockpit and replaced the gunsight and IP decals. The only problem I had during construction was due to the push fit nature of the kit - when you test fit, particularly smaller parts such as U/C parts, it is a devil of a job to get them apart again! As is typical with my modelling, I made a few assumptions - and errors! The only reliable picture of this aircraft which I could find showed a light coloured spinner - possibly sky? I assumed that this was a replacement/temporary and I used the theatre red spinner colour. I also left off an antenna wire since I could find no evidence one way or another whether they were used in Italy. I used decals donated from an Italeri kit and this is where it all started to go wrong. I blindly followed the Italeri instructions for the camouflage pattern only to find - far too late - that this is probably wrong for the so called "Firewall" scheme which it was trying to depict. The colours are, I think, correct but the pattern is not. Ho hum! Also, the shark mouth markings were way too long when compared to the picture so they were modified and touched up as best I could to make them look a little better. The final problem was noticed only when I was taking pictures - I don't know how but I hadn't noticed the small light just behind the arial mast - not sure if they were even carried on wartime machines but on my version, it was painted over (Ho hum again!). Anyway some pictures Cheers Malcolm

    Decals on and Flat coated. Decals were from the kit except for the fuselage roundels (these had a weird bit of printing on the yellow ring) . Apart from that, the kit decals performed really well conforming to the detail with an application of Micro Sol. Flat coat was SMS

    After the bombing of the Air Force, the Israeli army immediately entered Lebanon. A new Merkava tank was parked on a small basketball court. The tank crews chatted in the shadow of the tank and waited for the next order. After a while, two children came, and the red boy pointed at the basketball stand and yelled at the tank crew: "This is our basketball court!!!” The little boy behind him clung to his "weapons" - an steel stick, trying to show a strong look. The older soldiers were not worried about this. He was still sweating with a handkerchief, while the other was curiously watching the two little boys do the next step. Finally, the young soldiers responded loudly: " go away!!!!!” 1/35 diorama Merkava mk1 In the process of making this Merkava, I have been thinking about how to make a diorama. I have always disliked the scene of fighting, so I decided to make this non-combat scene but also the scene of conflict between the two sides. I chose children because only children can get close to Israeli soldiers. I didn't hesitate too much in the choice of location, I loved sports when I was a child, but I was very thin,our basketball court was often occupied by adults. At the beginning, I planned to build a football field, but then I thought that the football goal frame was not tall enough, so I changed to a basketball court. The forward-facing basket was in front of the tank and seemed to be blocking the advancement of the tank. The steel stick in the hands of the children contrasted with the huge new tank, just like 20 years ago when I was standing next to a strong adult on the court.... Thanks for watching and thanks to Google Translate. Shi Zheng END

    When I was making inroads into my stash I had a few large helicopter models to make so I made the thread 'over there' about it This included the Italeri Merlin HM1 and the Airfix CH-53 and I have taken the opportunity to pop out some other helicopters during the build Anyway I cannot remember ever putting an RFI for the CH-53 which I finished as a US Marines 'copter of HMH-262 The Ugly Angels in the Middle East This machine used engine jet pipe blanks with images of the delightful Betty Boop which gave me much amusement replicating inside a tiny-ish hole I scratch built the countermeasures gear and every one of the airframe markings was home printed Finished in a mix of Tamiya Acrylics here she be: Cold light of day images, very chilly for a May morning... But 'nuff of pollytics And on The large fuel tanks were aftermarket because the Airfix kit ones were for skinnier early tanks Betty is visible on the jet pipe blanks here Rotor blade marks were no fun at all but add nicely to the overall look Not great pictures but typical of my poor 'tography abilities sorry I hope you like this Thanks for looking

    Hi Comrades! Here is my recently finished Heinkel-111. It's old but good Monogram kit (Revell boxing) with Eduard brass, mix of Kagero and Peddinghaus decals, national insignia painted with Montex masks. The main issue of the Monogram kit is inappropriate gondola configuration with blind forward end. I ignored it, sorry. After completing the model, I ordered ICM kit of H-20 and found a great additional clear part for the gondola - so sad for me... Unneeded Lofte gunsight window was faired over, some other modifications made to the undercarriage. I was unable to find the photo of the prototype, but always wanted this one - now I have it! Here are some pictures of interior (brass+scratch) And the complete model Hope You like it and thanks for looking!

    Well the construction phase of this one is complete so I just had to hang all the bits onto it for a photo shoot! Will have quite a bit of assembly to do after painting, but for now the scratching can stop! The final job was the headlight brush guards, which I initially intended to be brass, but after a couple of tries I decided to just go with styrene. Hope I dont knock them off while painting. So heres a final pre-paint look at the beast.

    I like this kit, it fits together really well, particularly after that Airfix Tornado. I like the softer style plastic too, nicer to work with. Despite the engine intake contraption inside, the wings fit pretty well, as long as you squeeze them in and press the fuselage down on top you don't really see much of a gap. Nice detail in the wheel bays too. I certainly don't need to spend £35 on the Airfix one. I'm sure it's better but this was only about £14 on ebay! It's just a shame they made the tailcone and bullet fairing too long and I had to cut them up. I'm hoping once painted they'll look better.

    Hi guys a lovely little kit to make but a bit basic, then again it is over 40 years old. As usual painted with enamels an lightly weathered until i decide what setting to put it into in the diorama in the future. thanks very much for looking.

    Finished this MiG-25 Interceptor today after about three months. Built oob except Eduard photo etched seat belts. I airbrushed (0.2 and 0.4 mm) it with Vallejo and MiG acrylics and weathered etc. with oil colors. I enjoyed building a lot, even if there were some small problems re a few subassemblies which did not fit as they should. So I also needed some putty. Overall this is a nice kit which is not as tricky to put together as one might think. Thanks a lot for looking!

    Ive been building this as a review build for Truck Model World magazine, its a new resin cab kit by Modelers Resource in 1:24. The Chassis is scratch built using parts from Modellers Resource again. Ill pop a list of all this bits I used when its finished. It is built as a FF tractor unit for 5th wheel trailers and is based on a Liverpool lorry. linky to parts Untitled by richellis1978, on Flickr Untitled by richellis1978, on Flickr Untitled by richellis1978, on Flickr

    This photo appeared in Typhoon and Tempest, F.K.Mason. The caption claimed that F3-T burst a tyre, u/c collapsed, bomb dropped off and exploded killing two ground crew and destroying the aircraft. Such a major incident would leave a strong 'footprint' in official archives ... but there is not a trace in 438 Sqn's or the Wing's ORBs, no mention of casualties. F3-T can be identified as RB207 and there is no trace of an accident on its Form 78 record card (which you would expect). Nor is there an 'accident card' which would have been raised to cover this. RB207 in fact survived the war and carried an impressively large 'bomb log' on the starboard side. It is, incidentally, one of the decal options in a recent Eduard 1/48 kit. Just visible on the 'chin' is an inscription which always used to be claimed as 'Tess'. It was in fact 'Tirez le doigt' - which translates as 'Pull your finger (out)'. The caption looks to me like an entry in a 'What happened next?' competition. CT

    Slowly but surely over the last few weeks I have been working on the undersides and weapons. I made the cardinal mistake of using Alclad Gloss Kote which never stopped being tacky. Sprayed Vallejo Matt varnish and there has been a strange reaction between the two. Oh well - live an learn! An overall shot of progress so far. More detailed shot of the mucky part of the undersides based on images that people on LSP kindly provided per my request. Now the various Eduard Brassin Zuni, Bombs and MER's as well as Master pitot and kit ladder. The Eduard resin parts are very detailed and there are many decals to add as well. I should have drilled and pinned the bombs to make them ver secure and also to ensure correct alignment. The end is in site. Still nothing from Joanna @ Trumpeter. I think I may have a solution for this being creative Hi, I have tried a few times over the last 6 months or so and had nothing back.

    Since there are some interesting Frog kit boxes posted here, some may be interested in seeing the oldest Frog kit I have: I'm not an expert but I think it's the original 1959 box. I will not build this one, just posted the box as a curiosity. My original plan was to build the Eastern Express Sea Venom, however I may change plan and build and original Frog kit from the stash, either the Hurricane or the Macchi Mc.202

    And if as all this wasn't enough, to add to the dramatic circumstances that make me ask myself why am I building this model, there is no lavatory in sight. A dry fit of the interior, that mysteriously, unlike 90% of kit interiors, does fit. (well, I made it, so better does). Consider that even some relief has been molded on the coaming, credit to the care put by the pattern-maker. (Why, oh why, those firebrand "decals", I will never comprehend): Look at that punem, it would make a mother happy.

    Thanks CC some more work needed before painting the interiors, see below Thanks Steve I wouldn't mind doing one of these in flight, so I'll keep an eye on it The PAVLA set is definitely a huge improvement on the kit cockpit, at least at a first glance. After more dryfitting last night, I thin kI'll go with the vacformed canopies, also because the resin bit that goes inside the opening one doesn't fit in the kit canopy - and the corresponding kit part is way off. So, before priming and painting the interiors, I assembled the rudder pedals to the central column What I did to mount them is to cut a length of 0.4mm brass pipe, drill a passing through hole in the column and glue the brass pipe in. The pedals were then glued on top of it with CA. They need a bit of cleaning, though - I couldn't see that even with my magnifying glasses Glued in place Once I clean up the pedals, I'll be ready for primer Ciao

    Been a while since I posted an update as I have reached the stage where the only things left are the really hard bits that I have been putting off doing. A major worry has been how to create the folding ladders that are fitted to each corner of the track guards. Although I model armour these days I am always on the lookout for stuff I can use from other genres. Once more railways came to my aid when I found Peters Spares stocked a PE signal ladder kit made by MSE. (As an aside I recommend Peters Spares for great service - they also supplied the Markits carriage handles I used on the engine decks.) Although the ladders are HO scale, around 1/76th, they have stiles that are near enough to the dimension I need, and the rung spacing is easy fixed by only using every fourth hole! This is what they looked like out of the packet. The fret is supposed to provide an assembly jig but the distance between stiles was only 4mm and I needed 8mm. My initial plan was to use the jig to solder the rungs to one stile, then cut the other stile off the fret and move it out to 8mm. This plan was so cunning it had to be aborted immediately as the heat of the soldering iron distorted the stile. So after much fluffing around, de-soldering and straightening the stiles I abandoned the project while I worked out a Plan B. After some thought and a medicinal Scotch or two I decided to CA glue instead of soldering. I made a hi-tech jig out of scrap tree wood and styrene and proceeded to assemble two ladders which looked like this. I then had to cut the ladders into sections, three different sized bits being needed for each of the finished ladders. Here they are with my assembly jig. And a closer view. Then the bits had to be assembled to form the folded ladders, thus. And finally they were fitted to the model, with some styrene details added. They are not actually finished yet, I have to make a tie down for each one and I am still thinking about that.
