    Republic P-47 Thunderbolt STGB II Chat

    Or after some interweb reading I can use the kit decals and keep with my overall build theme (WW2 USAF based in Essex) . In the kit is 'Little Chief' 276179 flown by Lt Frank Klibbe 61st FS/ 56th FG - the markings show 5 victories , this was his 3rd and final P-47D , he received the plane whilst the 56th FG was based at Halesworth but he was still flying it when the unit moved to Boxted 18/19th April 1944 - his 6th and 7th victories coming in early May 1944 And an excuse to build a 2nd Jug 'Bubbletop' in 56th FG colour's either the obvious one Gabreski's or the Group Commander Zemke's. The planes were delivered to Boxted mid May 1944

    Real Life got in the way - I missed the Radial Rocks GB so my Jug needs building , Tamiya 1/72 P-47D , currently deciding which squadron /pilot decals to source or make - bearing in mind for accuracy that Tamiya 1/72 razorback kit is block10 - block21 please count me in if space for a little one...

    Add me to the list - I am planning a visit to the beaches next year for the 75th , This GB could be my first venture into Armor and figures (eek painting people) .. or Bridge building ( Pegasus Bridge ?)

    "In the year I was born" GB - ** New members enquire within **

    This will be fun : 1968 is the year so choices a plenty , I can go with a favourite the Avro Shackleton or a Lightning ..... ooh I could build a 'Spad' as a 'Sandy' (another kit from memory lane) , I am sure I can find something interesting!
  7. Very Nice Harrier ! 10/10 for intro. A plane of my youth I vividly remember the 'dancing' aircraft at 1974 Farnbourgh airshow.... and of course the SR-71

    A Pint of Dark and Cloudy or something Stronger

    Update : The death of the Donut Gunner I have never been one for having active crew inside my models (probably because my painting of crew was horrible so - it was time to say farewell to the dorsal turrret gunner and time to get out the plasticard (I forgot to take pictures with out paint ) And when sitting in the fuselage Finally the cockpit, almost time to button up this little baby - I was surprised how much difference just adding tape seatbelts makes

    Ton up Lancs

    Haha walking through a local town market with my good lady - I spotted a stall selling 'toys' - there was a medium size Red Box that I was drawn too ... after a little haggling I now have plans to build this wonderful workhorse ( the stash is growing !! )

    I have also been working on making my own decals And the starboard side is a work in progress - the brown is the wrong colour but that is easy to change

    A Pint of Dark and Cloudy or something Stronger

    Not sure whether this is an Obi Wan Kenobi ( I don't think I let my mind go and used the force to guide me ) or a Blackadder 4th update : Trench Warfare (commonly known as re-scribing) is much more 'entertaining' than I ever imagined !! Big hands - the continual requirement to remove my glasses for real close up work (sign of getting older) makes the process all the more fun!! Anyway here are the wings, I don't think they will look too bad after the full painting weathering process has been completed. To keep me sane I have done some more subassembly construction and painting , cockpit , engines (after looking around I decided to stay with the kit ones ) and bomb bay with black wash to make everything look dirty. Plenty of scraping & removing plastic to get Engine mounts to fit the wing without a large step - time for filler / sanding and scribing (yay more scribing)

    Revell/Italeri 1/72 Airspeed Horsa

    I have a front row seat for this one ..'Hold until Relieved' . The 'pilots' of these were amazing - why anyone would willingly fly a 15,000lb glider that would be crash landed is beyond me ! The pilot of the 1st glider landed just a few yards from the bridge. I always thought of creating a Diorama depicting that 1st glider lander - not sure how big it would be in 1/72nd

    Air Defense and Its Evaluation

    Major surgery in the 1st post and a scribing tutorial thrown in for good measure on page one ( I am about to start Trench Warfare on my latest build soon) - I will sit at the back and take notes, this does look a cracking project.
