  1. Hello everybody. First, many thanks to Brad for organizing this GB . Also, my thanks to TonyW, rob Lyttle and JOCKNEY whose enthusiasm for the Connie "helped" (you know what I mean, guys) me choose between two subjects I'm really fond of. So my entry is Revell's 1/144 Lockheed L.1049G Super Constellation in TWA markings. The most elegant airliner of all times IMHO (the Concorde ranking second). I decided on the TWA markings because they're intended for the "long nose" version I prefer and I will put the plane on a stand, gear up, to emphasize it's sleek silhouette. If I could
  2. Following the confirmation late last night that British Airways intends to retire its entire fleet of Boeing 747-436's, I felt it was a fitting time to bring this kit to the workbench. I have flown the 747 since 2016, after a twelve year stint on the 757/767 fleet. My last flight on the aircraft was in March, just as lockdown was starting - maybe I will get the chance to operate one more flight as the aircraft are dispersed...? The kit is the Revell offering - here's the box: Rather than the "Landor" scheme provided, I shall be finishing the model in one o
  3. I’m thinking I’ll save the Yf24 for the prototypes gb (if it happens) but I think I’ll start with the Su-47 as imho the quirkiest one there, then maybe a Typhoon next.
  4. Just as a little variety from my recent microscopic projects I went for something completely different Big, simple, no PE and minimal scratch involved, om the other hand a lot of surface to play with painting. For now filling and sanding and filling and sanding.....phase is nearing to the end. Real fun will start soon Cheers Mick
  5. Here is my new project. This will (hopefully!) be a depiction of N220, the winner of the 1927 Schneider Trophy race. I started this one about a month ago and it has been progressing fairly well. Now that some of the more difficult parts are out of the way I thought it might be safe to show. It's a small aircraft - only about 47mm from nose to tail in this scale, but the shape is quite complex. So there were more than a few nights spent trying to get the outline and cross sections looking right. I started off with the fuselage outline. Ma
  6. 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 d
  7. Hi, This is my GWH Victor K2 in 1/144. I'll use the Kitsworld decals to build it as XM715 Teasin' Tina. Cheers, Stefan.
  8. Hi folk's my stalking for another subject has paid off and also taken me in another new modelling direction,build number two will be Revell's Space shuttle which is my first spacecraft subject since Airfix's Lunar module back in the sixties. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/revell-04544-space-shuttle-atlantis--237843 No idea what is in the box but it should be fun.£12 on e-bay secured it.
  9. Here for your perusal is the Minicraft 1/144 scale DC-8 kit modified to be a -61. I decided to include photos of the finished model from the workbench as well as some that are staged in the bright sunlight. The workbench photos lend to seeing the details a little more clearly, while the sunlight just makes her shine! I’ve long wanted to build a DC-8 and chose for my subject N822E, msn#45907, rolled off the line at Long Beach, California in January 1967, then delivered as the very first -61 to Delta Air Lines. She flew her first revenue flight on 18 April 1967 in the roomy 195 seat
  10. My first build will be an L-100-20 Hercules in the colours of TAAG Angola Airlines in 1/144. I'll be using the Minicraft kit with a Welsh Models fuselage. I'll photograph it before I start but for now here's a link to a photo of the real thing: https://aviation-safety.net/photo/292/Lockheed-L-100-20-Hercules-D2-THA Can't wait to get started!
  11. Few days ago I finished another "long-term" project. It was my challenge since Apr. 2019. Small diorama with Boeing 747-8F in Cargolux Cutaway special livery on airfield fragment. The kit is mainly Revell, but, due to poor quality of some pcs. I took from Zvezda's 747 all the wheels (Revell's are to small), front landing bay and gear, engine's fans. Then I spent many hours scratching cargo compartment. At the end, to bring more 'life' to the diorama I ordered some, available online, stuff from ROCAST Models, which are superb. Naturally I had to add some photoetched parts -
  12. As my mini Mig-15s over in the Africa GB are almost done I thought I would continue my experiment with 1/144 scale with this little chap... I understand the plastic is from Platz which srkiral is also building in this GB. I am planning on building the Israeli 110 Tayeset Knights of the North plane...because I like the colour scheme and I have never built an Israeli plane. After 40 years of modelling seems about time. As always all comments welcome. Dave
  13. 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
  14. I built the model of the Tupolev Tu-114 a couple of years ago. The history behind this turboprop airliner is truly unique. The plane was designed in the late 1950’s on the basis of the Soviet strategic bomber Tu-95 "Bear" . The specifications of the plane were massive: hight 15,5 m. length 53 m. and wing span 51 m. The four 14.800 hp turboprops drove eight counter rotating propellers and the diameter of these ”widmills” was 5,6 m. The max. speed was 870 km/h. The noise level inside the cabin could reach up to 110 db. The plane was operated by Aeroflot (and in co-operation with Japan airlines i
  15. There are so many reasons why I shouldn't enter this GB but as has been said, You can never capture Africa's heart, but it will capture yours; so he I go... Roden's Bristol Britannia with the markings for African Safari of Kenya; a short-lived operation that did flights between Europe and Nairobi Maintaining may usual standard for GBs I won't be starting for a week. Once I do though it'll be straight OOB, because my New Year's Resolution is to keep it simple. But that's not to say there can't be some sprue fondling first I'm not a fan of clear
  16. Kit : Learjet 35 Brand : Stransky Scale : 1/144 Decals : Kit Decals I picked this little kit up in Telford 2018. The minute I saw it I just know I had to get it and build it in the Finnish Air Force colours. The kit is not bad for the scale and size. I just found some of the landing gear and gear doors a little thick, but it’s down to the limits of injection molding. I could have used the parts to scratch build my own parts, but I didn’t. I did change and correct some parts of the kit. The first thing I done was to drill out the cabi
  17. Kit : Learjet 35 Brand : Stransky Scale : 1/144 Decals : Kit Decals I got this in Telford two years ago. It’s really small kit, so I’m hoping it will be a relatively quick build. The cabin windows are filled, you get decals to represent them, but they’re marked on the inside. I decided to drill them out because I think it will look strange if the cockpit is clear and the cabin windows are decals. It’s quite easy to drill out the windows but you have to be careful because you don't need to drill all of them.
  18. This is my recent build of another Airbus. I had actually planned to finish it in the BA anniversary year but for some reason I had only a slow progress on this model as I chose other models to finish first. Well,now I finally managed to get this little Airbus over the finishing line. Not much to say about the kit and the build,as its the well known Revell A319 wirh British Airways and Germanwings markings. Troublefree build all around. The decals come from 26decals and worked great. The details come from the extensive Revell decal sheet. Paints used a
  19. Hello, It will be my first model build. I am used to painting gaming miniatures and larger busts, but I would like to try something new. Millenium falcon starship always fascinated me. Since I was a little boy I always wanted to build it. I have chosen 1/144 scale because finished product is not gigantic and can nicely fit in the shelf, on the other hand, model details are still superb. I was lucky to get this one really cheap. I know that recent released version has some minor bugs fixed, but for me this already is supper cool (by the way, you can read more about it here: https://
  20. Unusually for me I planned my years intended builds by looking at the Britmodeller group builds for the 2021 and worked out which ones I wanted to join. So here is my second non injection GB entry - a F-RSIN resin kit of the lovely post war Languedoc airliner in Air France colours. My plan hopefully coming together later in the year with another 144 airliner for the French Fancy GB, again in Air France colours. So here we have it - simple looking kit with minimal number of parts Box and decals Fuselage and winds - two pieces - bonus!
  21. I finished this little Mark 1 kit of the HS 748 last weekend as part of the Australia and New Zealand Group Build. The kit was built as it comes in the box with some scratch detail added like the APU housing on the starboard starboard engine and the addition of a couple of missing aerials. The GB was also dedicated to fellow Britmodeller Silver Fox who had passed encouraging comments on several of my builds previously, so there is a little nod in tribute to that fine gent who will be sadly missed. Hawker Siddeley 748 T.2 A10-603, School of Air Navigation/No.32 Squadron, RAAF
  22. This is Revell's AN-225 kit "light" It has no interior and no landing gear. Compared to the original release,it also features the old paint scheme. When I saw that kit in my local modelshop,I had the idea of building it together with the Buran,as the AN-225 was origially planned for. Ark Models recently released with the Buran their first own tooling and as its also in 1/144,I ordered it right away. The second issue features a large decal sheet with all markings and the distinctive paneldesign. I can highly recommend this kit. The parts are crispily mo
  23. Hey, This is my first post and first model, please don´t be too hard to me. I will build a Beoing 777-300ER in the livery of Air India. My Camera is damaged , so picture will follow in future. Yesterday I mad my first airbrush layer, some mistakes included, but I think I will figure it out how to improve my airbrush skills. Decals: 26 Decals Kit: Boeing 777-300ER Zvezda Colours : Humbrol Gloss Ivory 41 Xtracolor Canadian Vodoo Grey x150 Red: I am still trying to find the best match
  24. Hi, I've been reading here for quite some time now and looked at some fantastic builts, that really inspire me for my modelling. Let me present you my SAS A320 NEO that I finished yesterday. It is not the new Zvezda kit, as this wasn't yet released when I started the model. It's the Revell A320 neo, with wheels that I ordered via Revell's fantastic replacment part service. Decals are from LN decals and for sure one of the best I ever used. It also has few parts (cables on the wheels + antennas) from a Metallic Detail set. Windows are obviously from Authentic
  25. I have quite a few builds on at the moment and very little time BUT it would be so rude not to join in to this GB especially with so many interesting subjects being built. Looking through the stash I didn't have an awful lot that qualified but I did have this from the Mig section of my stash. As its 1/144 it should be a relatively quick build - famous last words. All the kit marking are metal finishes. This is the Egyptian marking. This MiG-15bis was damaged in combat with Israeli Mystéres of No. 101 Squadron flow
