    Airfix for 2019

    I might pick up a 1/35 tank, but are these new tools? Reissues? I also would’ve loved to see some new tooled American aircraft in 1/72 akin to the Hellcat, something along the lines of an A-20 or an Avenger which could have both USAAF and RAF schemes, but that doesn’t seem to be the case this year.

    `Repeat Please`

    Great build! I like how you replaced the Hurricanes with Buchons, as in the real production they didn't have enough Hurricanes. so they repainted some of the Buchons

    Tiger I “131” in Tunisia* - Dragon 1/35

    Love the build. Reminds me of this photo from Battlefield V (a WW2 game for people who don’t play video games). https://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thenerdmag.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2018%2F09%2FDn9m5j_U0AIRsdT.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thenerdmag.com%2Fbattlefield-v-recon-class-and-combat-roles-weapon-gadgets-and-tips%2F&docid=kWH3M8pb1Bh5EM&tbnid=vOzJrmFeLOU5-M%3A&vet=1&w=1200&h=675&hl=en-us&source=sh%2Fx%2Fim

    Have no frog kits at the moment, but what the hell, I’m in.

    Great looking model, and just the best time to post it being BOB day!

    1/72 P-47D Razorback

    I found some decals with the 1942/43 USAAF roundels, so I’m gonna make it an average Razorback from 1943 probably this weekend.

    Airfix 1/72 Spitfire IIa

    Hey man, I love the build, it looks like you’ve done a superb job with this. Only problem is that it isn’t done, and the ready for inspection page is for finished models only unfortunately. I recommend moving it to the appropriate spot, the work in progress page, so we can see the full extent of your progress. Cockpit looks really well done though!

    Wonder Woman's Plane

    I think the airbrushed tri-color scheme on this aircraft is really well done, though I think you put too much chipping in some areas, most notably the engine. Do you know if Eduard has aftermarket stuff for this, like resin or brass or something? Next time you build one I would use those, it really changes the detail in some areas. Speaking of which, I’m not a big fan of this kit. The cockpit detail isn’t good and the fit is bad as I can tell you filled it quite a bit. Also there’s no seatbelts, and I HATE KITS THAT DON’T FEATURE SEATBELTS, IT RUINS THE WHOLE MODELLING EXPERIENCE FOR ME!!!1!! HOW DARE THEY NOT CARE ABOUT THE MODELLING COMMUNITY AND NOT ADD SEATBELTS!!1!1!! Did you also engrave the panel lines, I can’t tell in this photo. One other thing is that this kit is rather hard to find, but that’ll end soon as I’m pretty sure they’re making a dogfight doubles set with Superman. Overall I think your kit looks fine, not amazing but fine, and I think your next kit will look really good with practice. 6/10.

    Heller Ju-52/3m 1/72

    Great looking bird, I adore the camo scheme. Looks like something you can airbrush on the main coat and hand brush the brown pattern. Though it’s a little depressing thinking what happened in Switzerland with the JU 52 last weekend.
  10. Great job, amazing with brush painting. Speaking of which, how many coats did you paint it?

    1/72 P-47D Razorback

    Yes, but it’s stalled recently because I lost the decals. Not a big deal, they were pretty yellow, and I can get plenty of Razorback decals on eBay for cheap.

    Indiana Jones Flying Wing

    I’m a huge fan of Raiders Of The Lost Ark, and I was wondering where I could get a kit of the Flying Wing. I know Black Sun Models has one but they’re out of stock and it’s $125. If anyone has one in the stash please tell me as well.
  13. I bet that German looking at the Lancaster is thinking “uh oh.” good model though, I love the diorama. whenever I see something dambusters related I always think of the Trench Run from Star Wars (which was inspired by Dambusters). *”Stay On Target!”*

    1/72 P-47D Razorback

    I got this kit at a vendor at the Planes of Fame airshow in Chino this year, great show. Before posting this I’ve assembled the main body and have almost finished painting but I’ve encountered some setbacks on the way. firstly is The absolutely atrocious fit of the wings which required multiple uses of the Tamiya putty. The mod says 1964 so I’m not so surprised. The cockpit is standard ‘60s Airfix, just a seat and an endless abyss of plastic. One thing thing I like about this kit is the silver plastic, which I can just scratch the paint for chipping. I’ll keep updates on the model in the coming weeks. It’s the perfect weather for outside modeling so I’ll be getting some fresh air now. https://i.imgur.com/CGaHmyS.jpg
  15. Finally, time to finish my P-47
