    Too many 1/72 Hobbyboss F-14 Tomcats

    I've just gone through the whole thread from the beginning and automatically want to add more Tomcats to my stash, great stuff!
  2. I've got an Academy F-86F in 1/72, started but I'd like to add it to this GB as an incentive to complete it. It's well below 25% completed. I've been searching hannants for a set of decals, found some for a Greek F-86E I might use, was there any major differences visually between the E and F?

    F4U Royal New Zealand Air Force

    Chaps, planning on purchasing Tamiya's 1/48 F4U-1A to do a New Zealand bird, I wanna use Sky Models decal sheet as seen below, will be building as the bottom aircraft on the pic It quotes top colour as light grey but only picture I can find in colour is this one and it looks more like a very pale blue, just wanted to confirm the correct topside colour.

    Tamiya 1/48 Mosquito

    So here's my first entrant for this GB, probably not the last I'll be honest. For those that didn't see the chat here's what I have eligible. I've decided to start with the mosquito mainly as the Beaufighter may need a replacement canopy and its about time I finished the kit. Here's what the little work I did today, sorting the white stripes prior to getting it ready for decals. Aircraft will be finished as a 45 Sqn machine based in India in 1945.

    Tamiya 1/48 Mosquito

    Little progress to share but finally got the decals on, next week comes the fun part where I can finally start panel washing and weathering.

    RNZAF Avenger TBM.

    Looks great, personally I really like the panel line wash.

    KUTA XI GB Chat

    No not really, only thing it's italeris crude moulding that has a fair bit of flash on some of the smaller parts. Overall it's a nice kit, it stopped in its track as I don't have the desert paints for it at the minute.

    Thank you Col, yes the Beaufighter will most likely be my first entrant to this GB.

    Italeri F7F-3 Tigercat

    My second build for this GB will be the Tigercat alongside my Eduard Hellcat. One of my favourite aircraft in the fact it just looks so good. Kit has been started but below the 25% rule. Planning to finish as the bottom aircraft based at Cherry Point.

    Where do I start? Ive got a 109, Boston, Skyraider, Beaufighter, Mosquito, Spitfire, Hurricane, A-4 and F-5. Plenty to choose from!

    Italeri F7F-3 Tigercat

    Well gents thought I'd share what little I've got done. Fuselage and wings together. Going to detail the gear bays next as well as the engines. Looking at the landing gear I think I may need to order metal replacements because the kit ones look very flimsy.
  18. Blitz23

    Yes. Another Tomcat here.

    I don't think anyone will moan about another Tomcat.
  19. Happy new year guys, read an article on Bodenplatte earlier thought it would be a cool topic for a GB, having said that stevehnz suggested to make it A Battle of the Bulge 75th Anniversary GB, which I think is a good idea and it gives the GB a broader appeal.

    Nice Steve I'm building the same kit, you decided on which scheme you're gonna do?

    Grumman Gb Chat

    Guys I've noticed no Tigercat builds so far, just thought I'd check if this wasn't to far gone to enter. I've built the cockpit and painted the interior, that's it so far. Figured this GB would be the perfect time to finish it off.

    Eduard F6F-5 Hellcat

    Evening chaps I'll be entering with this little beauty. Hopefully I can finish a GB for once!
  24. Blitz23

    Eduard F6F-5 Hellcat

    Not much to report, made a start though. Wings altogether minus photo etched parts, cockpit will be the next focus. Decided on my scheme as well. I shall be doing Death and Destruction VF-83 USS Essex.
