  1. Good day everybody, this is a placeholder for a maybe second contribution to the SSDGB, depending on how well my build of the Crusader will go. I intend to build this plane as the SAR/firebomber as shown in the boxart. Content of the box: We'll see if this will get started during the GB. Best of luck to all of you!
  2. Just 2 in fact! So continuing on with the airliner SOD* clearance here are my next projects. Both are Minicraft kits, maligned by some, I have built a couple and find them OK. First is Singapore Airlines jet which made it tot eh decaling stage when the decal setting solution discoloured the gold in the cheatline. Here is is before my blunder After sanding most of the decal away and after repainting the fuselage Second is a BA jet, G-YMMM, the one that had a fuel starvation problem on approach to Heathrow and landed short of the runway. It's at the priming stage at the moment. I'll be using Xtradecal sheet for this one. * Shelf of Doom (or should I say Tub of Doom)
  3. After completing Bandai's X and B wings along with Darth Vadar's Tie Fighter I wanted to do more of their excellent kits and the AT-AT was ideal choice and its poseable as well. I haven't seen any builds on here so here's the sprues. x2 of D sprue. Completed the head in 20 or so minutes, it has a detailed interior but nothing can be seen now its together. Onto the legs next.
  4. A Rafale An F1 And an extremely ropey Mirage IIIR Sunce they’re all small I’ll group them in the one thread. The first two should be very straightforward but the Heller kit has raised panel lines and wings professor Junkets would have been proud of…
  5. My apologies for being late on parade chaps, I have been wrapping up a build for the Century Fighters GB (finished yesterday). My first entry for the GB is this Revell Airbus A319 which will be finished in British Airways centenary markings when sporting BEA's Red Square retro scheme. Here are the box and contents photos along with the 26Decals sheet. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr Time to get on with it now. Cheers. John
  6. I think it's time to build another airliner. In the late 1990s BA painted a small number of its aircraft with a Poppy scheme to coincide with Remembrance Day; usually this had a poppy and "Pause to Remember" applied to the fuselage but G-BIKW was (as far as I know) unique as the poppy was applied to a plain white tailfin (this was after its "Ndebele" World tails had been removed but before the current "Chatham" livery was fully applied). Here is a link to the scheme So, to be built from the Zvezda kit (which has the correct Rolls Royce engines) with 26 Decals. Unlike some other Zvezda airliners this kit has no option for dropped flaps or slats, so should be a relatively quick and straightforward project. It will probably be another week or so before I get started as there are still two F-15E to finish. Mike
  7. Finally completed what began as a fall project of building a pair of 727s; it stretched into winter, and just now finished in spring. This was a first for me…building two models at once. Proved to be quite a challenge that was not only time consuming, but pushed the limits on space! My workbench just isn’t large enough for more than one-at-a-time, so new rule…just one…finish it…start another. No more “two-fers.” Here’s some history and photos posed in the bright sun and “in the hangar.” First is the somewhat historic Northwest Airlines 727-51 (-100), N467US, that became infamous during the only unsolved incident in aviation history…the D.B.Cooper hijacking on 24 November 1971. After jumping from the deployed rear air stairs of the airplane, Cooper was never seen or heard from again. Only remnants of the $200,000USD was ever recovered, found by a small boy buried in a river bank nearly completely deteriorated, but still clear enough to read the traceable serial numbers as the bills from the ransom. The incident led to a new mandated installation of the “Cooper Device,” a small vane that attaches to the rear fuselage, activated by airflow from the slipstream preventing the rear air stairs from being deployed in flight. The Airfix 727-100 is completed in the original livery as she rolled out in 1965. During the years leading up to the hijacking in 1971, she went through the paint shop at least twice as Northwest changed and updated the livery. She was sold to Piedmont Airlines in 1978; then in 1982 she went to United Technologies Flight Dynamics testing navigational equipment. In 1984 she was sold to Key Airlines for which she operated daily charter flights from Nellis Air Force Base to Tonapah Test Range, northwest of Las Vegas. She was retired and stored in Greenwood, Mississippi in 1985 then finally scrapped in 1996. The Minicraft 727-200 is of N272US, an airplane that really has no “distinct” or famous career. She served at Northwest first following her delivery in 1969. She was leased to Pan Am in 1988, returned to Northwest in 1989, then retired and stored in 2007 at Smyrna, Tennessee, where she still stands on her own gear as a parted out hull to this day. Both 727s were primed with Tamiya gray primer, painted with Tamiya TS-26 white and Alclad black base and polished airframe aluminum. Tamiya XF-8 dark blue was used for the cheat line on the -100, and Tamiya TS-49 bright red was used for both tails. Corogard on both models is an airbrushed mixture of Testors Modelmaster Metalizer Non Buffing aluminum and Testors Modelmaster Flat Light Ghost Gray. Wings, wing fairings, and horizontal stabilizers were airbrushed with MRP Boeing gray. Livery decals on the -100 are from Microscale; on the -200 are from Draw and 26. Windows on both are from Authentic Airliners with details from Nazca. Nose gear on the -100 is from Authentic Airliners, while the main gear is SAC metal struts, Authentic Airliners wheels, and scratch made doors. Nose gear on the -200 is from the kit; main gear are modified from the Airfix kit, with Brengun wheels and scratch made doors. Both airplanes received a brushed on clear coat of Future to finish. Hope you enjoy!
  8. I thought I might try a new challenge and go down from the big scale of 1/72 to 1/144. So I dug out this Dragon Tornado from the attic. They do a weird cockpit with Mr Blobby crew, so the whole cockpit and ejector seats had to be scratch built. I have to say 1/144 is a very unforgiving scale! Too tall nose wheel or skew whif pylons are all too easy errors to make. The canopy was not all that good so had to use filler to fair it into the spine. Anyhow tell me what you think? You might recognise the 56(F) Squadron markings It's an old scratch built RAF hanger in the background and an Oxford Diecast landrover Andrew
  9. After I got over the worst of the mojo meltdown which hit me about eighteen months ago I decided to concentrate on straightforward models until I felt my confidence was fully back. As a result my 2022 output is mainly OOB builds although the modified Airfix Boeing 737 is an exception. The year’s work should have included a Boeing 787 but at a very late stage I managed to confuse plastic cement and decal solvent and the replacement titles which Ray Charles kindly agreed to send me appear to have got caught in the postal strikes. Never mind, it should give me a head start for next year. I hope you enjoy my collection of 1/144 civilians and I’ll see you in 2023.

  10. EGNT Newcastle Airport Main Terminal Pier 1/144 Firstly I must say I'm not sure if this project belongs in the diorama or civil aviation thread but I'd thought I'd appeal to the small number of airliner fans as I'm going to need some expertise on the way. Some of the aircraft I'm going to make are going to be conversions and from some dodgy kits (minicraft). Newcastle Airport is a very small airport and it's only terminal is served by a pier surrounded by a handful of aircraft. Despite the expansion of the airport itself the pier has looked the same for the last 30 or so years which has hosted a few eras of civil aviation and numerous different types of aircraft. This give me an idea of building the whole pier which would give me a choice of what era I want to exhibit. Some include:- late 1980s - Wardair 747-100/200s, Britannia & BA 737-200s early 1990s - Britannia 767/757s, Caledonian L1011s or DC10s, BA 757 & a320s (landor) early 2000s - Flying Colours & JMC 757s, Monarch a330s, Air2000 a320s 2010 to now - this is the era I'm going with, there will be a few discrepancies for sure but this diorama is going to coincide with the outgoing Thomas Cook 757s in the old livery and when easyjet introduced the bandana livery and I'm toying with the idea of at least one easyjet in the old livery. This may be too early to introduce the easyjet a320neo but I've got the kit so what the hell. here's a rough look at the set up.... Stand 3 - this is always reserved for BA and is only 1 of 3 air bridges. This stand can accommodate the whole a320 family but I'm going for a bog standard a321 by Zvezda Stand 4 - This side of the pier is mainly for domestic routes but can change depending on availability. Stand 4 will accommodate a Easyjet a319 in the old or new livery. I haven't been able to get a Revell A319 kit yet so I'm going to take apart an old a320 kit. Stand 5 - Easyjet a320neo by Zvezda Stand 6 - Easyjet a319 (need to find a cheap Revell) Stand 7- The airport is now dominated by Jet2 the 737-800 is now the most common jet. The zvezda 737-800 is the obvious choice. (red and silver livery not that jet2holidays horror show) Stand 8 - Another 737-800. With the sight of old TCX 757s it will be Thomson and not TUI. Stand 9 - also stand 30 depending on the size of the aircraft. This is always the Emirates 777 spot and the A330 before that. However its also common to find the TUI dreamliner here or before that First choice or Thomson 767. I've got an old zvezda 767 I'm busy tearing apart so I thought I'd go for the latter. Also for the sake of a balanced diorama I thought the Emirates would be too big! This will have an airbridge. Stand 10/11 - Stand 10 and 11 are primarily for slightly larger narrow body sized aircraft so the 757 is a good fit. I haven't decided if these are going to be TCX or Jet2 or a combination of both. The kits I have bought is the well criticized Minicraft C32 kit of hell (I'm going to need some advice with these). If I go with Jet2 I'm going for scratch built winglets and the red and silver livery. The TCX will be the sunny heart blue livery. Stand 10 has an air bridge. Stand 12 - KLM 737-900 or AF a318. To be honest I fancy making both but I'm leaning more toward the 737-900 as I may be sick of airbus by the time I've done BA and 3 EZYs. I believe no kit exists for the 737-900 apart from Authentic Airliners which is not available but I'm up for doing a conversion. I've also been given some advice to avoid the Eastern Express A318 kit and do a A319 conversion instead. Although this stand is often reserved for KLM/AF, I'm going to have to check that this stand can accommodate and aircraft the size of the 737-900. Most often you'll see the 737-700 or the Cityjet RJ85 parked up. in this example the furthest Easyjet on the left is in the wrong place. This is where the BA A321 shuttle will be Stands 1 and 2 exist but will likely be out the picture unless I decide to make the whole terminal! more content to follow...........
  11. I managed about the same as last year, with 3 being rescued from the Shelf of Doom (all my 1/144 completions) which were my last 3 finished for the year, and one a strip and repaint of an older build. 5 were RAAF subjects for my club's delayed RAAF 100 display and a number of others for GBs here and elsewhere. Here they are in no particular order. 1/72 Airfix Ilyushin IL-28 Beagle, Finnish AF 1/72 Airfix North American RA-5C Vigilante, RVAH-12 USN 1/72 Hasegawa McDonnell Douglas F/A-18A Hornet, 77SQN RAAF 1/72 Hasegawa Lockheed P-3X Orion, Swedish AF (What-If) 1/72 Italeri Aermacchi Macchi MB-326H, 2OCU RAAF 1/72 Matchbox Hawker Siddeley HS-125-600, 32SQN RAF 1/72 Matchbox Hawker Siddeley HS-125-600, Finnish AF (What-If) Refurb. 1/72 MPM Lockheed 5 Vega D1-1A, 3CU RAAF 1/72 Dora Wings Percival Vega Gull, 1CU RAAF 1/72 Revell Mikoyan MiG21 F-13 1/144 Airfix Boeing 737-26Z Adv, RTAF 1/144 Minicraft Boeing 737-376(SF), Australian Air Express 1/144 Revell Boeing C-40A (737-700), VR-59 USN
  12. BAC 1-11, Airfix 1/144 Classic-Airlines.com decals. I don't normally do airliners in 'house' colours. much preferring to build them in actual airline liveries, but when I saw this on the Classic-Airlines.com website I thought it was very attractive. My son bought me the sheet for Christmas last year, so I thought I'd better finish it before Christmas this year! The Model is from the old Airfix 1-11 kit, with the nose made more pointy with Milliput, the wing landing lights filled in, and the wing fences cut off and replaced inboard with plasticard. The decals are laser printed on a constant sheet of carrier film so need cutting around, but behaved very well. G-ASYD spent its entire life with BAC/BAe being used a a prototype/development aircraft. It was in fact stretched to become the prototype series 500, and the shrunk again to become a 400 series aircraft with the 500 wing. Anyway, I think it makes an attractive little model, and the Airfix kit is still worth building if you can find one. And a family shot with a couple of other Airfix 1-11's, also with Classic-Airlines decals: Thanks for looking, and Happy Christmas! Cheers John
  13. Hi everybody! Upcoming project will be another unusual soviet russian object, but this time a completely non-fictional one that actually flew. It's an Antonow An-71 AEW/tracking system based on a highly modified airframe of the Antonow An-72 series. This is in the box: 6 sprues of light grey styrene, 1 sprue with clear parts, 1 small PE fret, decals and instructions booklet. The eagle-eyed among you might already have spotted a tiny little amount of flash here and there. I think you know AModel kits, so I don't think that I have to tell you that this won't be an easy going build at all. This will be a slow, very slow build, I'm afraid. Well...I must be masochistic. The build will start soon, first I have to sort some real life things. Any thoughts, comments, encouragements will be very welcome! Thanks for looking.
  14. Just got these tiny wee things from Messrs. Kingkit for a bit of Christmas fun.
  15. Hello everyone, I have managed to complete this little bug before year end. It has been a great learning during the build, did a number of mistakes and learnt from there. I did not manage paint it in metallic sheen theme, and I have read in this forum on how to make it, I will try next time. Spent some amount of time to deal with the weapons and doors too, it is not just small, but TINY to my eyes even with reading glasses. Another important milestone for myself is that I can manage the masking of the exhaust !! I told myself - I can manage this masking, I can mask anything in the future The WIP : Thanks for reading. Merry Christmas !!
  16. I picked up static model in recent years after long retirement since 90s. Decided going to start with a small one, really tiny one - 1/144 F-22A from Trumpeter. Started with cockpit - 4 pieces of small parts, no detail but just some sharp shapes to represent the 1/144 cockpit. Painted black and highlighted with some German grey. Glued the small parts inside the lower fuselage, parts are small, but still have good details, fitting is not bad. Applied a few thin layers of Tamiya smoke (x19) followed by clear yellow (x24) on the inner surface of the canopy. Gun metal (x10) on the inner wall of the exhaust ports and some black / grey color in the inner frame of the fuselage as the plastic is really thin in some area. After a day, glued the upper and lower fuselage together, added air intake ports too. Fitting is nice, no major faulty area. There are a few mold marking on the upper surface of the wings and on the main body just behind the cockpit. sanding them down and also sanding down all the gaps where the upper and lower fuselage combined. Will then check if any putty filling is required. Definitely NOT a Bandai type of model kit which trial build is almost not required and parts are just fitted together like magic, but if I can manage it as a newbie to airplane model, I am sure it is an above-average kit !
  17. Braathens first and last. DC-4 and 737 Minicraft DC-4 and Daco 737-400,1/144. Lima November Decals Braathens SAFE (South America & Far East) was started in Norway in 1946, receiving its first aircraft, a DC-4, LN-HAV on December 26th 1947. The airline was formed to support the Braathens shipping lines, carrying crews and spares worldwide. as well as charters for other shipping companies. The SAFE suffix was dropped in 1998, and the airline was taken over by SAS in June 2004, being known initially as SAS Braathens. The aircraft were repainted in the then SAS livery. As I already had made a 737 in the final livery, I thought a model of LN-HAV would make a good companion, so here they are! Thanks for looking John
  18. This is the newly-boxed kit - same 60s tooling but with new box art and decals. I suspect the moulds have been cleaned up a bit though as the parts fit very well on the whole and the styrene was nice and shiny... I re-scribed it, replaced the windows with clear resin and added a few details here and there.
  19. When building some 1/144 aircraft, I bought some 1/144 pilots from Heroesmodels. They are very nicely modelled and higly detailed but when installing them into the cockpits I noticed they are to big. I had to cut off the lower body to fit them and the heads "fill out" a big part of the canopy. This can clearly be seen in the cockpit of the 1/144 Zvezda Mi24 in the picture below. So I did some measurements and compared them to the Hasegawa 1/48 Navy pilots and found out the body is closer to 1/125 but the helmets are almost 1/100. I have a Trumpeter 1/144 F117 that has a pilot included and altough it's way less detailed than the Heroesmodels pilots, the body is closer to 1/144 but still the head is to big. The helmet should be about 1.8mm wide, the Trumpeter is 2.2mm and Heroesmodel is 2.5mm. That doesn't look like much, but when building 1/144 models, 0.7mm is a lot. So what do 1/144 builders use for pilots that aren't big headed? I know about the OZmods and some people use Nscale figures, but it would be nice If somebody could measure some heads
  20. I received a surprise in the post this morning, it was a package from my fellow modelling buddy and all round good 'egg' @Hockeyboy76. Inside the box was this 1/144 Platz boxing of the Thunderchief, along with some very nice edible packaging. Cheers buddy, I hope that I can do them justice and I know that Mrs N and I will enjoy the Stroop Waffles and Welsh Cakes. In the box are two kits with a choice of three colour options. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr Cheers. John
  21. These two will be a fairly straightforward oob build. They’re somewhat close to my heart as the YF23 was pretty much the last model I built in my first modelling stint before a thirty year break. Also I was working for a subsidiary of Prat and Whitney at the time so all eyes were on who got the contracts. Rumour had it that economics not performance won the day but that’s another story Both Trumpeter and both pretty good little kits m, despite the somewhat ropey box art. Right then back to the WIP till Sunday week.
  22. Boeing 767-300ER British Airways (03862) Revell 1:144 I'm amazed to recall that it has been nearly 40 years since I first saw the Boeing 767 back in 1982 at the Farnborough airshow, where it was making an appearance with it's stablemate, the Boeing 757. Since then over 1200 of all variants haver been delivered, with the cargo version still in production nearly forty years after the types first flight. Engine options were the Pratt & Whitney JT9D/PW4000, General Electric CF6, or Rolls-Royce RB211. British Airways opted for the RB211 as it was common (in sub-marks) to their 747 and 757 fleets, a choice made by only one other airline buying new (China Yunnan). There was also a lot of commonality between the 767 and 757 flight decks, which made crew training and availability more flexible. Entering service with BA in 1990, their 767's remained in service for 28 years until November 2018. In the early 2000's 7 aircraft were sold to Qantas, making them one of the few airlines to operate the RB211 powered 767.The initial variant was the -200, joined in 1984 by the -300 as modelled here, which had a 21 foot fuselage extension increasing seating capacity by around 50, depending upon layout. Revell's kit was first released in the early 1990's (the date moulded inside one wing is 1992), and has appeared in various different boxings over the years. This latest release is packed in one of Revell's end opening boxes featuring a painting of G-BNWB climbing into an evening sky. Inside is one polythene bag with all the sprues for the 'standard' 767 kit, and a separate bag containing the RB211 engines particular to this version. Also included is booklet of instructions in Revell's usual style, and a very nice A5 sized decal sheet. As far as I know only the previous Gulf Air/British Airways boxing has featured the Rolls-Royce engines, so they make a welcome return here. RB211's below: Produced in white plastic, the moulds are obviously holding up well the mouldings are very sharp with no evidence of flash. Detail is engraved, and comparatively few parts make up the whole kit. A separate clear sprue is provided for the cockpit glazing, but no provision is made for the cabin windows. This is not really a problem as most airliner modellers fill the cabin windows anyway, and use decals to represent them. A set of 'full' windows and a set of window frames are provided on the decal sheet, so you can make your own choice. Construction begins with the nose gear bay, which is inserted into the fuselage halves, which can then be joined. There is no cockpit interior provided, unlike in some of the more recent airliner releases. Wings and tailplane halves are then assembled and joined to the fuselage in a construction sequence which is simplicity itself. You have the choice to build the model 'in flight' with retracted undercarriage, or with it deployed for when on the ground. Finally the engines are added to complete construction of the model. The kit still contains the original engines which represent the Pratt & Whitney JT9D/General Electric CF6. As such they are a little 'generic' but useful if you plan to use aftermarket decals and build a non-BA machine. Aftermarket engines are also available if you wish to go down that route. Here they are, but are marked as not for use in the instructions: The decals are beautifully printed with good colours and razor sharp detail. The Chelsea Rose was one of my favourites from the 'World Image' era, so makes a great choice for this model. Plenty of stencilling is provided, and the tiny 'Roll-Royce' logos are little works of art. Your guarantee of quality is assured as sheet states it was designed by DACO, who only produce the highest quality. The painting/decaling instructions are in full colour, with paint numbers called out from Revell's own range. 767 window and door arrangements can vary by airline, so it is always worthwhile checking references for the particular aircraft you are modelling. The instructions show the correct layout for a BA 767. However the fuselage mouldings do not tie up with the drawings, particularly with reference to the door by the trailing edge of the wing. It is not present on the kit fuselage, which is not a problem, but at the very least you will need to fill some of the windows where it is located. I expect though that most modellers will anyway fill all the windows and use the decals provided, which have the correct pattern, and door outlines. Conclusion. It has been a while since this kit was last available, so it is great to have it back. The provision of the RB211 engines is also welcome, as this is the only 767 kit that can give you the BA option straight out of the box. Add to this the provision of a beautiful decal set that would cost a fair bit as an aftermarket sheet, and this is a great package all in one. Recommended.

  23. One of my latest creations. Great Mazinger by Bandai at 1/144 scale, Infinitism range. Really a nice kit. Easy and pleasant to assemble. I really enjoyed this model. I had fun customizing the colors and adding details and a bit of weathering. And a finish with a satin varnish to make it less plastic. He's coming to keep his big brother, Grendizer, company. On to the pictures. Hope you will like it. Alain.
  24. This is what my stash and my local toy ( not hobby) shop contained. In the interest of not overly confusing myself I’ll build them as a trio. They’ll be pretty much oob except where there’s some obviously wrong that needs correcting and I still haven’t decided on colour schemes yet.
  25. The kit. Still no idea what colour scheme I’ll build it in. But at least it’s now in the mix.
