  3. Evening Folks,this one was built for the Frog GB,it's the old Hasegawa tooling released by Frog in the seventies as part of a two way deal selling each companies kits in their respective countries.the moldings were pretty good and the decals were usable but as I'd built a NM Sabre in Danish colours I wanted to do a painted scheme and had the decal sheet for this version which served in Djibouti in 1978.These aircraft were well worn and near retirement but the sharks mouth was freshly painted in theatre,thanks for looking in.

  5. This model was finished in April this year. It is the old Revell kit, which is not as detailed as the newer Zvezda kit. The main Problem is the flight deck front Shield, but by filling and sanding and using a decal it Looks ok. Vueling is a Spanish low-cost carrier and in 2012 they had flown 50 Million passengers and marked this Aircraft with a big !Gracias! on one side and on the other side with "Thanks". The Decals are made by Nazca. The Right side is done very well, but surprisingly there were a lot of mistakes on the left side. So I had to improvise at some Areas with some

  6. Here`s new model for my "Falklands War collection" - 1/72 A-4Q Skyhawk of Argentine Naval Aviation, code 3-A-305 (ex-US Navy A4D-2 serial 144929), Rio Grande air base, Falklands War, May 1982. Built of Airfix` kit A03029, which seems to be a quite nice kit, but requires a lot of work because of terrible and stupid errors (worst of them is bad nose angle). I think that old Fujimi from 1980`s is still much better than Airfix from 2012. I`ve used PE parts from Eduard, resin fuel tanks from Brengun, resin ejection seat from Pavla and decals from Condor Decals and DP Casper.

  7. Hallo again This is my 3rd helicopter. After hundreds of aircrafts. I changed basically my modelling for this issue: 1. I use the new Tamiya glue EXTRA THIN. Why? · It works much faster. It glues rapidly! · It does not harm my color. I use Gunze C colors. · I can glue more tiny parts, as with the common Tamiya glue. · I save a lot of CA glue. · In this built only the etched parts are glued with CA. Nothing else! 2. I do not cement all glazing before the helicopter is fully assembled and sprayed. Also the final clear

  8. Hi all! I ´ll show you now one of my last projects. This is an TRIMASTER model, an icon of the 90´s. This is a multimedia kit with P.E ( basically, the cockpit) and pieces of lead ( undercarriege system and exaust stacks) . The P.E are of stainless steel, very hard to deal. This model has an issue that must be corrected, the wheel wells are closed such as the FW 190 A models. The in line engines, used in the FW 190 D´s and TA series had these open. The next photos show, how I corrected it :

Thats the trader in me I suppose but I wonder if patriotic zeal will win out? Oh and yes the props all spin now...

  11. This is the Eduard boxing of Hasegawa's excellent 48th scale Macchi C.202, which has photo-etch and resin parts and a colorful decal sheet, including the markings for the C.202 flown by Italian ace Ennio Tarantola that I chose for my model. The Hasegawa kit doesn't need much aftermarket besides perhaps some cockpit detailing and resin wheels, although being a glutton for punishment I decided to use all the included photo-etch parts...except the few I lost or damaged during the build. Paints are Model Master enamels, dark tan for the topside and light sea gray for the bottom and i

  12. Sea King HAR.3, D Flight, 202 Sqn, RAF Lossiemouth, 1981. This particular kit has sat on the shelf making me feel guilty for the last 18 months. I bought it second-hand, partly started, as a donor for a canopy missing from another kit. A few parts had been assembled and the extra RAF-style windows had been cut out. I couldn't bring myself simply to split it up for parts, so I had another go at rescuing it by crash-moulding a new canopy, this time using its own canopy to make a female mould form silicone, then a male mould from Milliput. I finished up by

  15. My first aircraft build, after seeing dozens of youtube clips i decided to try. Some mistakes on the build and I got the paint /color scheme wrong, but i somehow like it anyways. I also went a bit overboard with the weathering, but it was to fun to stop. Hope you like it!

  18. Afternoon guys! This post will finish up all the interior detail I needed to do before closing both top and bottom halves of the fuselage and then I can proceed to finish off the detail on the exterior of the fuselage. So what needed to be done was the ammunition belts from the emergency ammunition cans and the oxygen bottle for the gunner. I'll start with the ammunition belts.....By using just paper and wire I'd thought I would show you how I went about this task ..photo by photo... 1. The first task was to cut 4 pieces of paper to the length/width of

  20. Hi Folks,progressing well with wheels painted and fitted, cockpit glass painted and prop and done too,some profiles show a red spinner which may be correct but I've matched a green colour to the 9 on the Revell decal sheet,I need to fettle the fit of the glazing before fixing in place.I cut a thin sliver of Tamiya tape for the spiral and placed it over the spinner after a white coat of paint then overpainted the green.

  21. Hi all. My latest build is the Special Hobby 1/48 T-2E Buckeye. I choose the Greek Air Force camouflaged version. Especially the red and white striped rudder and tip tanks look very good in combination with the camouflage colors imo. Lots of rivets and panel lines were added. The model was painted with Gunze Aqueous paints over Alclad black primer. Thank you for watching. René

  25. I wanted to do something that looked a little different with this build and hopefully pulled it off, it's part of a club compatision where we are all given the same kit and we can put it together however we like. The original kit is a 1/35 Tamiya T-62a Russian tank. In an Alternative universe the 3rd rock from the Sun in known as the planet Zorbachev. Zorbachev has been a unified planet under the Communist party for the last 150 years after the end of the pin-ball wars. The T62-b was one of the most effective weapons during the pin-ball wars, with its high energy recoilless b

  26. Another kit completed due to having many kits on the go. This to add to my collection of USAFE aircraft is the Valom kit which takes a lot of care and attention. The red, yellow and blue were all sprayed as Valom only provide decals for the fin. The stars came from Fantasy Printshop and the black stars l did myself. The cockpit came from a Revell F-101B which l chopped in half and the ejection seat from True Detail and the wheels were also aftermarket from Armory . The aluminium was various shades of Vallejo Metal Colour.

  27. Hi guys, I started working on detailing and correcting the 1/32 Italeri Mirage IIIE to a SAAF Mirage IIIEZ. The kit is in need of quite a few improvements and corrections, such as the instrument cowl, Instrument panel, ejection seat, bulkhead, tail fin, exhaust nozzle, JL-100 rocket launchers and their pylons. The length of the intake trunks will also have to be trimmed back a bit. Here's some pics of what has been done so far. Most picture show a before and after of the parts.

  28. I have now completed my Heller 1/48 Mirage IV A, depicting the exhibit seen at the Yorkshire Air Museum. Quite a testing build, a real fighter, and my first attempt at a complete re-scribe (and depicting bird droppings!) A bit annoyed with some silvering, on some of the decals. It didn't come to light, until after they were dry. More a case of operator error, than the decals themselves, I think. Resin cockpit set, and wheels. Metal refuelling probe, and decals from 3 different decals sets, to get the correct markings. Painted with Hataka Orange Line lacquer paints. Ian G-4078 by i

  29. Both the US Navy and US Air Force experimented with camouflage schemes created by aviation artist Keith Ferris, but none of these schemes saw widespread operational service. Lt Commander Chuck "Heater" Heatley of the Naval fighter Weapons School proposed a modification to the Ferris scheme. At first adding a false canopy on the bottom of the the aircraft. Later, simplifying the pattern from the "splinter" pattern associated with the Ferris schemes, running the various shades of grey across the entire aircraft. Despite the Navy findings that the "Heater-Ferris" scheme was not only e

  30. So, a little more done on the Mustang. This is pretty much all Im going to do with the engine as I will have the cowlings closed but rest assured all the parts are provided to build up a very nicely detailed Rolls Royce/Packard The below are all the parts for the cockpit except the instrument panel with the basic colours applied. Washing and dry brushing plus detail painting will follow.

  31. I used blue painter's tape to mask the head for a second paint attempt. Paint is Tamiya semi-gloss black from an aerosol can. Below is my rather inelegant masking job on the block. I used 3.3mm plastic tape to define the two areas and then used blue painter's tape and a plastic bag to protect the lower block. The upper block is Tamiya semi gloss black, the lower block is Tamiya gloss aluminum, both from aerosol cans, and the access panels are Tamiya chrome silver. Below you see some components assembled on the block. All are attached

Six pieces, all kind of somewhat not quite precisely moulded...I managed to fit it all well and then let it set up. Then I began the rigging--.005 monofilament tinted with black permanent marker for the majority, the rest stretched sprue. This is how it looked this morning... So then I tackled the control lines to the tail feathers...and the decals on the top and undersides... I neglected to docu

  35. Laying down a marker as I can't make a start just yet but although not what you would call front line I'm told it falls into the GB rules as these aircraft were combat capable if required and their pilots certainly were all front line trained,I'm building the single seater in Italian colours and it's a nice little kit so when the chance came to get the two seater I jumped at the chance,this is the first Aussie aircraft I've done since Airfix's Boomerang and that was when it was released!

  36. So why would anyone build 7 Fw190A-4’s at the same time, because you can ! This whole build fest all started when I built 2 of the 1/48 Eduard early A’s for a client. There were a ton of decals left over so I picked two for myself and went to work. I decided to build one from Tamiya and one from Hasegawa. That really got me going on my whole Wurger craze. From there I built 3 Tamiya D-9’s and most recently 2 of the Ta152C-1/R14, one Hobby Boss and one DML/Dragon. I found the 1/48 Eduard Weekend Edition A-4 at a very reasonable price at Scale Hobbyist so the next step was to pi

Fuselage extensions were made with plastic piping inserted throughout the whole fuselage. The gaps were then a build up of scratch plastic and milliput then sanded to the same proportions as the rest of the common fuselage. The wings were extended from leading edge to trailing edge by overlapping the top section of the wing against the bottom section of the wing and filling the gaps

  41. Okay, those of you in the know will remember that the Su-47 was a prototype that only ever appeared in black. I decided to change all of that by finishing this one in a What-if “operational” scheme. The kit was simple enough and the painting wasn’t as difficult as it looks (thanks to Artool Ultra Mask and a sharp blade). I'm afraid the build took a lot longer than it should have, but that's my fault - I'm easily distracted by the flow of new kits into my loft ! Got to admit being a bit surprised with the size of the blighter – it’s a little bit bigger than the Su-27. Here are a f

  43. I certainly hope not Giorgio, the idea is to make the kit canopy a bit bigger so I can file and sand the thing to a better shape, then use the bigger shape to mould from Hopefully that may happen later today The extra lengths will allow a flat overlap on the piece that can be cut back without the plastic curving back under the mould and reducing the effective mould size

  47. Like all the best laid plans, mine has had to be changed. The Master build is on hold for a bit while I work out how to make a decent fist of the canopy. So, let's plough on with Maggie. She hasn't got many parts, and those are in pretty fine fettle, so it ought not take too long to build. Like its bigger brother, the Magister was a simple aircraft, mostly made of plywood. The few fine raised lines were quickly scribed and tidied up. The cockpits are open, and there is a moulded representation of the blind flying hood aft of the rear cockpit.

  48. Agreed, shame it was never adopted over the low vis grey. I got the dark brown on today and unmasked tonight, just had enough masking tape to get it done so a trip to the diy shop needed. Also mocked up the weapons fit less a sidewinder which needs to be painted. I think that is enough rather than hanging the whole of one of Hasegawa's weapons sets. Next up is the Master metal barrel set and gloss coat.
