  1. 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
  2. Since I seem to have hit some leaves on the rails over in my Pullman Car build and have been stymied by my nemesis, the unassuming but terrifying nightmare otherwise known as... the paint job, I thought I should try and refresh my batteries by trying a diversion - namely, starting self flagellation another build. I've had this one in the stash for a while, and my interest was sparked by @HL-10's very nice Fly 1:32 Wessex build (sorry, don't know how to add that nice little box thingie with the preview) so I thought what the heck, let's give it a go. What's the worst that can happe
  3. Another Spitfire Mk lX in Desert Colours 145 Sqdn North Africa 1943. Had quite a few problems with this one, mainly trying to adapt the undercarriage to flight mode, the canopy not fitting well (big gap between the fuselage) and the decals breaking I think I should have taken a bit more time and care with it. I made my own stand from 3mm brass rod and a wooden plinth.
  4. 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
  5. 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'
  6. 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
  7. I recently saw a good friend who is also an excellent modeler. Whenever I see him he always gifts me old models and things. Amongst the box of stuff he gave me was a partially started kit. He has a habit of using the rudder to open and close things such as bomb bay doors or canopies. This particular kit he told me, he ended up giving up on because of the way the canopy pivots open. So I've no hope in getting it to work. Below is a picture of what he'd already done to the seat I then noticed the air brakes have been m
  8. Hi folk's a marker for a future build once the BBMF Spitfire and Tempest are done,finally got the right kit sent after the Technik version was sent in error(yes I know I should have said nowt and kept it) but really all that light and sound isn't really my thing. Anyway Revell;s mk ix was picked up on e-bay for 20 quid including postage which is a lot of kit for your money.I then looked for something a bit different scheme wise as I did with their Mkii This scheme screamed to be built,now I know someone is bound to point out no photo evidence exist's of it's origi
  9. Hi Folk's with my 1/32 year kicked of with Trumpeter's Spitfire Vb and Me 109 (both nearing completion) next is another Spitfire in the form of Revell's Mkll.This is my third crack at this nice but not without faults kit.I wanted to steer clear of the traditional BoB schemes but the later day fighter scheme's require a lot of correction's in the form of wheels prop's etc as a non rivet counter I'm not really bothered but for this build I am replacing the wheels with a set matching those of the flight's Mkll and finishing her in the 1997-99 277 air sea rescue squadron sc
  10. Hi all, First of all, many thanks to @Col. for letting me join in, and I hope this build will be a treat for all of us! Meet the Icelandic Fine Art resin Bucc in 1/32. Fuselage is cast from resin/aluminium matrix while the rest of the kit is polyurethane resin. It's a very limited run kit (I believe @Icelandic Fine Art only released 35 complete kits as it's basically one solitary genius [also called Alan!] who's toiled on this for 20 years!) so I'm very glad to have got one and this might be among the first ones built if I can maintain my concentration for the whole th
  11. Hi again, Britmodellers! Kicking off the first new build of 2021 (yes I know I'm supposed to be doing the Buccaneer, but!) with a subject I haven't seen since the early 80s. Shiny new BIG box with included paint and glue! (Plot twist - I'll be using my own ) I think the '50 Years' refers to the age of the kit rather than the aircraft itself. It's infamous for being designed from the pre-prod Harrier GR.1 XV278 which was at Gatow in West Berlin. The kit as produced means you can make that one unique airframe unless you are willing to make some modifications
  12. 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,
  13. 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
  14. Please let me know what you think and any suggestions/advice/techniques are welcome! Thanks! After a long absence from these pages ( I have been lurking once in awhile) I present a WIP of the new Revell 1/32 Tempest Mk.V. This of course a re-issue of the Special Hobby kit. I will be using the Barracuda Studios nose correction set and wheels/tires. I bought Roy's seat too but I think the kit parts are superior in this rare case. I believe the Barracuda seat was designed for Revell's older Typhoon??? In regards to the kit I can say the following: - Moulding quality look
  15. I'm toying with the idea of converting the Revell/Matchbox Tiger Moth to a Fox Moth. Apart from the new fuselage. centre wing section and tweaked u/c legs, my research indicates that not much else needs changing. Does anyone have any other views to the contrary? Anyone have any scale plans?
  16. Don't know if I imagined this, but I seem to recollect seeing photo etch for the tail fin aerial connection and gun-heating air vents for early mark Spits. Of course I can't find anything online now! Was I dreaming?
  17. Hallo This is my first A-5 version of the Fw-190. More than ten A-8 built. The Hasegawa kit 1/32 fails to show where the location of the actuator Y2 of the inner wheel well door is positioned. There is no hole for the pin! From my logic, the place where it is shown does not match, due to the wheel by itself. Can you experts give me an advice? Thanks in forward. Happy modelling
  18. 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
  19. Hi everyone I just wanted to share my thoughts and progress using the Cricut Explorer Air 2. I received my Cricut last Wednesday, my wife brought it for me for my 50th birthday (thank you Leanne). Now I'm a bit of a luddite when it comes to technology and I'm incredibly lazy I just want things to work with out any messing around but to my surprise the Cricut is very easy to use and I think the masks that you can make are as good as any commercially produced items. I started by looking for any additional software that you might need to use for designing and produci

  21. So the Christmas of 2020 was a little of a strange one, and the most of the year was no better. Constant home schooling and only essential shops being open. For most of us it was a good time to get plenty of bench time, and make out ways down the pile of kits in the stash. for me? It was a time to start fresh, go back to the basics of modelling, learn new techniques and above all come back to Britmodeller. For Christmas I asked the wife for just one thing, as the title suggests, yes a big tornado. For many years I have wanted to build a large scale tornado, and have all the
  22. First completed build of 2021! Trumpeter's huge 1/32 P-47D Thunderbolt. It's not as good as the Hasegawa kit, but it's cheaper and still builds up well. It's not a challenging build but the interior has to be seen to be believed! Build thread is here for anyone interested: It's painted with lacquers and enamels (Alclad 2, MRP and Alclad Mil-Spec) and after-effects done with Mig and AK enamel washes. The model is built completely out of the box (in fact there's a lot of plastic still left in the box!) except for the decals which were KitsWorld (aircraft specific), Fan
  23. This is representation of Erla-built Bf 109G-14 "Black 13" from15./JG5 at Kjevik, Norway in 1945. All A.M.U.R. Reaver sets, such as spinner & airscrew, cowling and oil cooler fairing with radiator mesh were used. The plane had late-war finish with several shades of RLM76 on lower surfaces and 75/82 on top.
  24. Don't want to look back too far as 2020 has been a horrible year in most respects, but I will remember it for the most prolific modelling year of my life, and hopefully never to be surpassed! First completed build was a bit of a shelf-sitter which was finished in February: 1/32 Trumpeter Bearcat, nice kit and an impressive model! Next came this very colourful Mustang, a much-modified 1/32 Revell P-51D for the Mustang STGB Following hot on its heels came this ancient Monogram 1/72 F-82G for the same STGB The 1/32
  25. Joining you with this 1/32 E Type Jaguar. Airbrushed red, I had such plans for this kit. Including red beaded seats - just like a kit-car that I built. Parts in the box. Including one wheel which I'd foiled. Inside which I found a 2003 receipt, matching the £1.50 pricetag from PoundSavers. And a bit of progress today. Wheels and tyres painted, and a bit mode front suspension added.
