  1. Hello gents, I've long had an interest in the activities of the Corpo Aereo Italiano during the Battle of Britain, so I was very pleased when I heard that ICM were adding to their range of 1/32 scale kits with a Fiat CR.42 Falco and doubly pleased when I got one and found that one of the markings options is for 83-1 of the 83a Squadriglia, 18o Gruppo of 56o Stormo CT based at Ursel in Belgium in autumn 1940. Although it is not noted in the instructions, 83-1 was the aircraft flown by the CO of 83a Squadriglia, Capitano Edoardo Molinari. Molinari was already an experienc
  2. I'm in with a 1/32 Kittyhawk OV-10D Bronco with markings for VMO-1 or VMO-2 from Desert Storm. I've also got a fair amount of after-market to go with it: And decals from Caracal: I'm not quite sure on the final markings yet - looking at the references it seems that most of the OV-10s left the US in standard 3-tone camouflage or grey but them were repainted into two-tone brown with grey under-surfaces. More on that to follow. I've also bought this: With all of the extras and the vague-ness
  3. 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
  4. Afternoon all, Here's my latest completion - the LukGraph 1/32nd scale Hawker Nimrod MkI. This is a beautifully cast resin model with some 3D-pronted parts, and was built out of the box. Xtracolor and Humbrol enamel paints were used, along with the kit decals. The only extras was the rigging. Quite a complex but thoroughly enjoyable build! Best regards, Rob
  5. Hi again, Soon after the Harrier comes this project that's been sitting gathering dust in the loft for many years now: Looks pretty familiar, the old Revell GR.1 kit which has now been not so much surpassed as smashed into the Stone Age by the new Italeri masterpiece. This will be a conversion to the F3 using Heritage Aviation's resin conversion set as a basis. Thought I'd better get on and do it before Italeri release an F3! (I hope!!) The set includes a limited decals set with those all-important walkway decals! Also using the white
  6. Sopwith Pup "Gnome" Wingnut Wings 1/32 This is WnW's Gnome engined version of the Sopwith Pup, and it's the first kit of theirs that I've built and way out of my comfort zone, being an AFV and Sci-Fi modeller generally. The kit went together without any real issues, although handling it become more difficult as the build went on and a few repairs were needed along the way. The single biggest job was the masking for the stripes, although I simplified it as much as possible by breaking the painting down into stages, rather than trying to mask and spray the whole th
  7. A.M.U.R. Reaver released a new resin set to improve 1/32 aircraft such as F-15, F-16, F-111, A-10, CH-53, Swiss Hawker Hunter F.Mk.58. Set will contain four standard dispensers and four with double-sized cells.
  8. Hi folk's,my build fits in with my 1/32 groove at the moment and an aircraft I had never seen or heard of before, a nicely molded kit and one of Trumpeters early releases it scales out about the size of a Spitfire seems to be a straightforward breakdown of parts too.I'll crack on with this then if time permits I have the mighty SR 71 Blackbird in the stash waiting to be built.
  9. Albatros B.II 1/32 Wingnut Wings The Albatros B.II was an unarmed 2 seater, almost unique in having been produced in 1913 before the Great War broke out, and remained in production until the Armistice in 1918. It was produced by many companies ,and with lost of subtle variations. The Observer sat in the forward cockpit, but I assume did not have the best of views, with the lower wings blocking his view downward, and the engine the view forward. His position was somewhat precarious, with his seat being mounted on top a the large petrol tank, another auxiliary tank above h
  10. This was posted in the WWI discussion thread by RichieW so I have to give him credit for the scoop but I thought it would be nice to get it on this thread. Copper State Model posted on their facebook page on April 2nd that they are to release a 1/32 Bristol Scout in 2021. Below is a link to their posting (should not need to be a FB member to see it). https://m.facebook.com/copperstatemodels/posts/2720441618244580
  11. Hallo This is my next project. The funny looking RE.8 from WNW. Since this model requires some skill for rigging, it is the perfect challenge for me. I did already the R.A.F. B.E.2c in 1/48 some time ago. Anyway, I am looking forward what this build will offer to me. In any case, I like this challenge in rigging. The DH 2 from WNW is ahead (from Roden already done) and also the Bristol Fighter. The Fe.2b is already done. You can see it under RIP some time ago. Happy modelling
  12. Hi folk's, my foray into 1/32 continues and this time fit's in with a GB.Pete(in lincs) had this kit for sale so I grabbed it at a cracking price as these kits are becoming very rare these days and the Stuka one of the rarest. First thing to say it's big! next it has to be said for the scale it's lacking in the kind of detail more mainstream manufacturer's would cram in so it's going to be the paintwork that will make or break it,what needs to be done is to paint it in European theatre colours then over paint areas in sand but more on that as the build progresses. He
  13. Revell's old kit from the early 80s, rehabilitated with a modified Trumpeter cockpit and Wolfpack ejection seat, Reskit wheels and lots of scratchbuilt details. Painted with MRP lacquer paints (wasn't sure about the shades, but it looks better after the decals and gloss coat). The decals are all from the kit, Revell's recent releases have brilliant decals and take a lot of the fear factor out of that part of the build! The subject aircraft was a 20 Sqn wing commander's aircraft based at RAF Wildenrath in 1971. It was lost in an accident the same year. There'
  14. Fellow members of my local IPMS have built many, many Wingnut kits and if you can't beat 'em, join 'em as they say. Having procrastinated too long I was fortunate to pick up one of the sell-off boxes from MBK in Germany. I chose the boxart version as the instructions suggested it had the bombs for ground attack, however I've also shown the cable pulleys the instructions show as painted over for this aircraft. Hey, it's my model. Paint is Tamiya, mostly as directed by WNW though I didn't like the various PC10 options they give so I modified proportions from one of their Olive Drab and Deser
  15. 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,
  16. Hallo Just to bridge the time gap of getting my oil dry on parts of my R.E.8 I will build this engines for display. Since most of them I built already with my aircraft from WNW, it is just to relax. Happy modelling
  17. Hallo This is one of my British a/c from WW1 from WNW. As for so many kits from WNW, the instruction is not quite accurate. The same will accompany now at the next build, the RE.8 and afterward the F2b Bristol Fighter. You may also have a look on my WIP. All insignia are sprayed. Happy Modelling
  18. So, to start with: I'm not after accuracy, I only build and paint for the sheer fun of it. This Spit has been in my stash for a while, waiting for a suitable paint scheme to present itself. Then I saw the Silver Spitfire, and thought now, there's an idea! Unfortunately I can't find any decals for that machine. Then I came across this one: https://allspitfirepilots.org/aircraft/RN201 Not the same aircraft, I know, it's an FRXIVe, but that I have to live with. I love the paint scheme. Some pics of the "office" to begin with. I couldn't resist putting in some cables and then some. And s
  19. This project started out as something totally different and took on a life of it's own! This doesn't happen often to me, so it was a pleasant surprise and made for a fun journey. A bit of a backstory: Bernhard Manfred Waßertropfen - also known as Opa (Grandad) was seaking a way to fullfill his childhood dream - to travel the skies - free like a bird. He therefore took a long look at his old trusty 1904 Mercedes and decided there and then to transform it into a Aerocar. After a long time of tinkering and many trials and errors - he finally succeded and could take to the
  20. With my SMTS TVR nearing completion and my Airfix Aston Martin DB5 looking like it might be a bit of a slow-burn I thought I'd try something a little different. On the Airfix Facebook page there was a challenge to build an Airfix starter set using just what was in the box and a few simple tools. I thought it might be an interesting experiment to take that approach with this kit. Can I build something to an acceptable standard using just the supplied parts, paint and glue? Box photo. Close-up of the "extra" bits, six paints, two brushed and some
  21. Hello gents I was fortunate enough to receive the ICM Gloster Sea Gladiator as a Christmas gift from my folks and my Dad has enquired after its progress a few times since; as I rashly promised that it was next in the build queue it's past due time I got started on it. I also have the original issue Gladiator kit by the same company, which I had been planning to build as one of the Aéronautique Militaire Belge (Belgian Air Force) Gladiators of the 1/I/2 Aé (Comet) Squadron based at Schaffen in May 1940. The Gladiator will be built as G-22, flown by First Sg
  22. There have been a lot of these lately so I am not going to bother with box & sprue shots, just pitch straight in...I had been thinking about this one for a while, so had a Plan. This meant starting by jumping ahead and assembling the wings and tailplanes so I could do some serious dry-fitting against the fuselage halves - it all seemed pretty good, excellent tbh with a cautionary note that a gap was possible at the wing root but very easily cured with a spreader, which in the event was not required. I decided early on that I wasn't going to fully prime this one - somehow the prim
  23. Hi Everybody, here is my latest build, not my usual scale but a thoroughly enjoyable build. Built entirely out of the box, just the addition of some scratchbuilt harnesses and buckles. Painted with Tamiya and Revell acrylics. A few pictures of the interior before it all gets closed up. I know the buckles are not correct but this was my first attempt at making them. I decided to paint the instrument panel rather than use the decals.
