  1. Hello all, I've been working on this one for a while now and i was hoping to get outside and get some photo's on a diorama and in daylight, but the weather hasnt been playing ball. So, i thought i'd get some indoor pics done and then update this later. The build includes Red Fox Studios instrument set and all the weapons are attached with magnets for ease of transportation, paints were from Gunze and oil washed with Abteilung Starship filth for the most part. All comments welcome
  2. Hey everyone With my 1/48 Tempest build coming to an end and my Harrier coming along nicely, I’ve decided that to keep my interest (in the Harrier) from waining I’ll build another Tempest Mk.V as the one from Eduard has really wetted my appetite for this rugged but rather handsome airplane. This one will be the 1/32 Hi-Tech offering from Special Hobby. As I seem to have more money than sense I’ll be adding some after market in the way of… And.. And.. And.. And.. And for some reason.. Plus all the resin and etch that you get in the standard kit. As ever I’ll be creating and spraying all codes and markings (not sure which yet), hopefully once completed I should have a fine replica of the real thing. Cheers all Iain
  3. Welcome to anyone interested in following this. After completing the first in the line, the 1/48 Special Hobby Ju 87-A, I have been itching to build the last of the line. Just for completeness, of course. But this time I thought I would do something a bit different and go for 1/32 scale instead of my normal 1/48. It will give me a chance to try out some detailing and challenge my painting skills to produce something that does not look like a toy! The base for this build will be the Hasegawa kit. This has been sitting in the stash for some time as it is the one with the figure of Rudel and his dog but I don't think I will be tackling them this time round. At the moment I can't decide if this will be a G1 or a G2 so I will start on the generic parts of the build while the gears turn and I make my mind up. The difference, for any not aware, was the G1 was based on converted D3 airframes and the G2 were factory remanufactured airframes based on the extended wing D5, about 174 airframes in total. The G1 may be a little more interesting as they retained many of the attributes of the dive bombers they were converted from but... Anyway here is the progress so far. Test fit looks good but the spinner looks a little odd. Will have to look into that. Control surfaces separated. 37mm cannon built and detailed. I used wire for the compressed air, and electrical connections. Replacement barrels are from Master in Poland and are absolutely beautiful! Cockpit will be next and I have a PE set from Eduard to help a bit with this. Oh, I also opened up the underwing radiators to add a bit more life. Replacement exit flaps were made from the foil from the top of a wine bottle and looks a lot more to scale. That's it for now before I bore anyone still reading this. Hopefully I can get a bit more work done this week and will post an update. Thanks for having a look.
  4. Hi folk's,only half a year late this was meant to follow on from the Hobbyboss Vb and Revell Mkii in a trilogy of builds started in January in what was going to be a year of 1/32 builds but life and GB's got in the way. The kit was a bargain £19.99 free delivery. I loved this scheme when looking for something different with a decent weathering job it should stand out. Here's the first two builds.
  5. Hello fellows, Let me show you my new project. The Trumpeter P-47 Thunderbolt, bubbletop, "2 Big and too Heavy", in 1/32 scale. As you know, this Tumpeter's model has a lot of interior details, which I'll try to made visible...(at least some of them). And here some pics...; this is the real bird, and the Trumpeter art box. As usual, I've started with the cockpit: As aftermarket, I only bought the Yahu Instrument panel. In my opinion It's worthy, and improves a lot. Most of the ducting and piping, wont be visible after the model is assembled... I'd like this part be visible, so I've added some hoses and wires... As also I did, behind the instrument panel: Prior cutting the fuselage, I did a fit test... My idea is gluing the two cut parts of fuselage, so they be easily to put and remove, in order to show the interior (the water tank, fuses added, etc..) And this is the way I hope the model will be seen (removing the parts): Note: the rear part of fuselage, won't be removable. Alhough I think is interesting, also.... So now, after putting AK putty for filling the gaps, the two halfs are drying... And finally, a last pic of the model.... I hope you enjoy it, and I would appreciate your comments! Thanks for watching.
  6. Plus the Magic Scale Modelling Light & sound kit. AOA decals, Quickboost pilot & RIO, painted Mig Ammo light gull grey. Link to video at the bottom showing the light & sound of engine start etc. (I know the open canopy position isn’t right but I’m delicately balancing best I can before I commit to glueing - the only minus point for Tamiya in this kit!) thanks for looking. jump to 2:55 if you want to skip my rambling
  7. We've just started a Group Build over on the ATF and this is the subject. It is going together nicely, and I like that the parts are numbered in assembly sequence 8-) Yesterday I started spraying. Priming with Vallejo Acrylic 74601 Grey Polyurethane Surface Primer and 74602 Gloss Black Polyurethane Surface Primer The engine was sprayed with AK Interactive AK480 Xtreme Metal Dark Aluminium, and the exhausts with Alclad2 ACL-107 Chrome. The sub frame thingy with Vallejo Model Air 71063 Silver (Metallic) The cabin crew were sprayed with Vallejo Model Air 71076 Skin Tone then over-sprayed with different Andrea skin tone shades These bits also received Alclad2 ACL-107 Chrome On the left we have Vallejo Model Air 71073 Black (Metallic) and on the right Vallejo Model Air 71057 Black The bodywork is Humbrol Acrylic 38 Gloss Lime. Humbrol Acrylic 19 Gloss Bright Red
  8. Hi all. This I purchased this kit a couple of years ago at Telford when I had an idea of building a NI fit cab. As usual with my builds I build memories, having done 3 tours in Ulster starting in the 80’s these along with the Wessex are pinned in my memory. Moving on I wanted the boxing that had the PIP filters and the tiger meet boxing it was. The kit itself was obviously a design of the day so moaning is fruitless although the quality of the clear part is shocking and I feel I definitely got the Friday version. I wanted to add a bit of detail to the kit as I think for the pose I had in mind, too much would be on show. My original idea was a flyer with the 3 undercarriage legs lowered, a gun mounted and a Santa Clause in the other door. Alas I couldn’t find a suitable candidate so another option was chosen. Plan B was a 14 Int photographer hanging in the door way and I found a 3D printed figure on the bay in 1/32 scale. So the build pressed on and through research and advice from guys on here and on PPrune I modelled this cab of 1563 Flt which was part of 33 Sqn from Oct 94 and just prior to the application of the 2 tone green. The MRB are actually straight as the look slightly drooped in these photos. The whole disc is removable but the kit is mounted on the pole. The nose antenna were replaced with 0.28mm rod and looks quite well in this scale. Anyway I’m rubbish at photography but I took advantage of today’s sunshine and here we go. Build log is here 869E6AB0-A3D5-4738-8816-7ECCFAA46188 F74CCD14-2E19-46C9-9B44-4C515994B3F0 BF416798-7E39-4113-A388-F43D837EC97C 51852B87-275F-4B27-AC04-ED865CCE3436 7BD2D1F6-4D07-4739-8190-DF9332194839 B8AB78AB-D2FA-445A-9EAE-428FF4C9E3FE 5ECB3F9C-CF20-484D-A09A-6DF948084B91 4578ABA0-39B6-4EEA-8EA2-0E5C01394CA8 B907009A-F66D-4C72-A1D4-A9E64DEED7E3 6FFBCCD2-2008-49ED-88D1-B3D33AF877F2 6586A696-8DB6-47DE-9D88-7C2307470AF5 45E17CA2-DDD1-44D8-8309-6000ABB4C7D5 23B776BC-29C3-4A6B-9818-750FEE686E79 AA6E6796-6082-41E1-B64D-546DD06AF658 8397A977-8C37-4E69-A794-4874792698B3 5ECB3F9C-CF20-484D-A09A-6DF948084B91 My thanks go to Pete in Lins, Jabba, Rickoshea52, Benbow, tarlucan, Sammy da fish. I’m sorry if I’ve missed you out but it’s been a great example of everyone chipping in. I’m calling this one done and I’ll have a break before starting the next project. Thanks for watching, Steve.
  9. Now that the magazine has finished selling, I can show some pictures of my 1/32 scale PZL.11c from IBG. It's a lovely fitting kit, and all the photoetched parts you need are in the kit, so this is built out of the box. The only drawback was having to scratchbuild a new windscreen, as the kit part had debris moulded into it. A couple of magazine shots: Cheers, Dean
  10. This represents an SBD-3 from VS-6 USS Enterprise June 4th 1942 crewed by ENS Frank O’Flaherty and AMM1 Bruno Gaido. Both Gaido and O’Flaherty were captured by the IJN after ditching their aircraft. After both men were interrogated, they had weights attached to them and thrown overboard to drown. This the Trumpeter Midway “Clear Edition”. As many have stated over the years, this is a pretty good kit! I wouldn’t mind building another one. The only AM used was Yahu IP, my wife made the squadron decal ID numbers for me. I used AK Paints exclusively on this build. This piece was awarded the “Whizzer White Memorial” Navy/Marine Attack Aircraft at the 2021 Las Vegas Nationals. Photos were taken with my iphone.
  11. Hello all, i hope you're all keeping well. While between projects I manged to dive into a quick Hasegawa 190 kit, for some reason these kits are far better IMO and go together better/easier than the Revell versions. I had an EagleCals (EC#79) set sitting about so though id use them on this one and use the rest of sheet on another one later, also added were the gun barrels and pitot tube by Master (AM-32-065) set....plus some canopy masks as i hate masking canopies up :-). Paints as always are Gunze and then lightly weather with oil paints. I will try and get some outdoor and moody shots later on as its not the nicest weather outside right now. Hope you all like it, please feel free to comment or critique.
  12. Hi All, Thought I'd offer a few WIPs of my Wingnut Wings 1/32 Albatros DV that I wanted to present using their 'Wooden Wonders' decal sheet markings. Here the fuselage is together and Pheon Models beautiful lozenge decals have gone on with no problems with the help of a little Micro Set and my wife's hair dryer! The wings are now taped in readiness for some Tamiya Smoke to highlight the rib shadings. Now the fuselage will be prepared for my first plunge into Uschi Van Der Rosten's Woodgrain Decals, which have attracted me for a while. These decals are transparent, so I'll highlight and preshade the individual panels with Gunze Radome and Tamiya Desert Sand that will show through them. That's all for now. More soon. Thanks for looking.
  13. Hi! I am the lucky owner of a DMC 1/32 Hawker Typhoon. Question: What glue do I use? Is superglue strong enough for the wing/fuselage joint? Cheers Hans J
  14. This is my second build of this magnificent kit of my one of my favourite Boeings. Extras included Master metal MG barrels, Yahu instrument panel, HGW fabric seatbelts, Master Details nose turret zip inserts, nose defrost pipe, control columns. Kits world decals. I did a build video series on YT if anyone's interested https://youtu.be/m-ncuQwvgcI Displayed with her sister ship "a bit o'lace" which I did earlier this year and motorised, but this one is just static. I just had to have a metal one and an OD one, but that's me done for big bombers now as have no more room (this is the only kit I know of supplied with these ingenious wall mounts). I know there's a nasty gap from the top section, but I am living with it as I value being able to pop the top off and look at the inside. Normally that kind of work is lost forever. Thanks for looking.
  15. I have been making threatening noises about this build for some time now - and now it's time for me to make a start. I have been gathering materials and resources over the last few months - still a few critical items to lay my hands on but I think I have enough to make a start. A bit of history: A few years back I was lucky enough to be given the job of redesigning an original Pullman carriage. The owner wanted it to run on the tracks again and after a spate of rail crashes in the UK, rail regulations were tightened considerably. This carriage was originally a wooden bodied carriage so there was no way the authorities were going to let that back on the tracks without some serious modifications. My job was to survey the carriage and come up with a design (in steel) that would allow it back on the tracks. I was lucky in that many original features were still contained in that wooden shell, which we were able to reuse. In short, we brought the carriage up to Edinburgh, removed (or rather, smashed) the wooden structure until we were left with just the chassis. The carriage was then rebuilt (in steel) as close to the original design as we could, while being very sympathetic to the original styling. Since then I have always wanted to build a scale model of the carriage - I still have all the drawings I made during that two year stint, and my model is going to be based on those, at 1/32 scale. I have some idea of how I am going to tackle some of the build, but mainly no idea about most of it. I just know that I am going to have to scratch just about everything. Here's a few shots of the drawings I am working with. First up, the chassis and sideframe structure.... (just an overview) The vestibule ends - which gave us a lot of trouble to design, as structurally, they take the brunt of any collision forces. Incidentally, my name, along with others on the project team, has been stamped on the shear plate in the vestibule ceiling. Lastly, here's what the carriage should end up looking like. This particular carriage was important as it was the last of it's type ever constructed, way back in 1951. Unusually, it has square windows at the kitchen and toilet areas - these were usually oval on Pullmans. I believe this is running today and can be booked for private charters - a bit more expensive than your standard BR ticket though. As always with my builds, this is not going to be a quick one - I reckon on about two years or more to build this one, but I have to make a start somewhere! So, to begin, the chassis plans printed out to 1/32 scale Some bits and bobs ready to begin. As you can see, this is going to end up around 600mm or so in length The first cuts begin.... oops did I mention that I am building the chassis in brass ? I should also mention that I am going to try and stay as true as possible to the original chassis structure/design. What on earth am I doing here??? Too late - I've started..... now I just need to learn how to solder lumps of brass together btw I placed this thread in the vehicles section as it seems to get a lot more traffic than the trains forum. Mods feel free to move it if I have broken any laws
  16. An odd title, you may think. It's inspired by the car stickers one used to see, usually on decaying old rust-buckets, that stated "My other car is a Ferrari/Rolls-Royce/Cadillac/" etc. Anyway, I had a Wingnut Sopwith Pup, a figure by Elan13 of an RFC pilot called "Henry" who is depicted holding a small spaniel-type dog, and a career that involved working and living in Gosport for nearly 10 years, and all this came together in this model. The subject is a Sopwith Pup from the School of Special Flying, Gosport, where Major Robert Smith-Barry developed a system of flying training that produced far better results than previously, and is basically still in use world-wide to this day. The markings are an option in the "Gnome" boxing of WNW's Pup, although I only used the fuselage roundels, serials, prop logo and instruments from the kit decal sheet: everything else was masked and painted. Anyway, without further ado, here's Henry "Sorry old boy, even at my rank I'm not allowed to take you flying" Forgive me for having a play with some effects in one or two of these photos: Thanks for looking. Comments and any suggestions for improvement welcome.
  17. I've only ever made 1/72 kits so this was unfamiliar territory for me - 1/32 seems absolutely massive I've made this as a surprise gift for a friend who I've known about 30 years. The kit itself was found already started on an auction site for a more than reasonable £18 - only a few cockpit components had been glued and some parts removed from sprues. I added a new cowling from Quickboost, the interior had a sprinkling of Eduard photo etch parts and I added some brake cables. Other than these its all out of box. Decals in the box were decidedly yellowed so I got Microscale sheet to match my existing Hasegawa 1/72 version (Blue 11, JG6, 1945). A really enjoyable build and nice to be outside the comfort zone of 1/72!
  18. Good evening, dears I would like to show you my model Trumpeter 1/32 EF-2000 eurofighter typhoon Royal Saudi Air Force 3 Squadron enjoy
  19. I built this a few years ago. When I got it out of its storage box today I found it was damaged so as I did the repairs I touched up some painted areas and then took new better photos of it The colour is supposed to be a 'burnt orange' . The colour and registration of an Aston Martin that was once owned by one of my motor-club members I added a bit of detail in the engine bay Headlamps and tail-lights were from 'Little-cars'
  20. JG 77 was unique in that it served in all theatres fought by German forces in WW2, and that it flew the Messerschmitt 109 exclusively. (Well...apart from a short stint for II./JG77 in the Macchi Mc.205 late 1943) I. Gruppe and II. Gruppe were formed in May 1939 with III./JG 77 being formed on 5 July 1940 in Trondheim from the II(J)./JG 186. April 11 1940 saw II./JG 77 arrive in Norway to take part in Operation Weserübung, the invasion of Norway, which had commenced two days prior. The primary purpose of the unit while stationed in Norway was to protect the coastline and ports from attack by British Forces, as well as provide air cover for the Kriegsmarine operating in Norwegian waters. The unit stayed for about 7 months before heading to France to participate in the Battle of Britain. So, as the tittle suggests, I plan to do an aircraft belonging to 5 Staffel that was photographed at Vaernes, Norway, perhaps midway through their time in this theatre. It features the standard 71/02/65 scheme with the sides darkened with what is most likely 71. There is a lovely profile in a book I have (Luftwaffe Fighters and Fighter-Bombers over the Far North by Andreas Brekken and Kjetil Akra) along with a couple of photos. Would post it here, but not sure about copyright. I was planning to do the mount of the Staffels most successful pilot during the early period, Feldwebel Robert Menge, but couldn't find one photo. The boxing... ...and contents. I built the 109E-7 version of this kit a couple of years ago. It was an okay build, except for the wonky front end (oil cooler and engine cowling), though I didn't think it would be worth doing another. I have a couple of the Cyber Hobby 109's that I thought would do, but then Eduard released the Spanish Civil Way boxing that has wings to do an E-1. How could I resist? Then came this boxing, complete with resin bits including Galland figure. Dohh! Sucked in again. So as I have missed a month already, I thought this kit with cowling on may just get done in time. The start... Thanks for looking.
  21. The box The kit. Not a bad kit overall but the engine is awful and the interior needs a bit of detailing. I have a week to mull over the best methods of fixing both
  22. Hello all, i hope you have been keeping safe. I decided to do another one of Trumpeters Me262 A-1a's knowing that some of the issues could be fixed. As many are probably aware the weapons hatches on the front are pretty poor in shape and form, so this was addressed and hopefully look pretty decent this time. EagelCal decals were used for this aircraft plus Quickboost seat and Brassin wheels. Paints used were C117, C121,C122 all from Gunze. As ever, please feel free to comment on the build even if you think there could be improvement's Thanks for looking, keep safe folks!
  23. The most advanced fighter jet in the world - the Israeli Air Force F-35I Adir (which means Mighty One!) The F-35 is my favourite aircraft currently in existence - I bought this kit shortly after its appearance and have been waiting for an opportunity to crack into a decent build. The time has come! You don't see many of these so here's the full box tour: First of all - it's very big! that's an 18" wide mat the fuse halves are sitting on. There's some nice surface detail around the panels but the rest of the airframe is creamy smooth! Interior detail doesn't slouch either: Engine and full intake trunking with thinly cast guide vanes and engine detail - this will not be visible, of course There are two sprues of weapons, bay details and door hinges: The pylons are also included for Beast Mode, which I will of course be using! Again some nicely moulded details with a bit of flash clean up required. More interior: Weapons bays, doors and wheelwell interiors, no need for aftermarket here. While the details aren't superfine, they are interesting enough and should come up well under paint and washes. The stabilizers are much better engineered than the Kitty Hawk version (thank god!!) as are the tailfins below: Again the wings have some decent moulded details with a very smooth finish everywhere else. Clear parts are tinted and the canopy is seam free: Some PE parts are included along with some glossy masks for the RAM panel taping: Won't be needing those so much for painting but the taped areas are distinctly flatter in finish than the baked-on RAM coating. Instructions are clear and well-printed on an A4-sized landscape booklet: Decals are also nicely printed, include most stencils and knowing Italeri's recent releases, should go down very well. So that's what's in the box. Of course I had to get a few more bits to push the boat out a bit more...! Eduard Big Ed, not particularly expensive or overstuffed with details, but the cockpit looks very nice, if it was the right colour Also have a set of new resin wheels by Reskit and Eduard Brassin GBU-39 SDBs (new capability for the IAF's F-35s) Unfortunately I also spent a relative fortune (almost £30!) on these very disappointing decals - only stencils and serials for 140 Golden Eagles Sqn. I hoped it would have both squadrons included but astonishingly IsraDecal released the 116 Lions of the South Sqn set as a separate set for the same price. I was hoping to do the aircraft flown by 116 Sqn's deputy CO, 'Captain S.' (the only woman currently flying the F-35I): but they can get stuffed if they want another £30 out of me for the 4x lion decals alone Anyway...I'll be building this over a period of months, so it's a long-term project for me. While I know the aircraft isn't everyone's cup of tea, it certainly is mine and you're welcome to join in the fun! Cheers Alan
