  1. Finished this one in the winter scheme last autumn only just got round to taking pictures; I wanted to weather the white fairly heavily so did put a full summer camouflage underneath. Overall I think it works though using the salt chipping technique to allow the camouflage to show through did result in some rather uniform wear & tear, and I realise now that I did not do enough to weather the underside blue, although to be fair the white was a temporary paint that wore off much quicker. I am going to give ICM a lot of credit for this kit; although work was required o
  2. I started this model as a part of the recent P-40 group build but in rushing to finish it to meet the deadline I managed to snap one of the undercarriage legs and ruin the wheels. The retraction jack from the broken leg pinged off and in disgust I threw the model in the bin. A couple of weeks later I managed to find the retraction jack and remove the other leg - along with the remnant of the broken one. With a paid of new undercarriage legs from SAC (at great expenses) I fished the model out of the bin and started to re-finish it. So, around 6-weeks after the group build finished w
  3. Hi All Having just returned to modelling I wanted to look to do one of my favourite WW1 aircraft the Albatros. I have tried to look for a post for this before but couldn't find one, so my question is, do I go Roden or Wingnut Wings for a 1/32 Albatros?
  4. Hi there, just thought I'd post my latest attempt. Although Im not totally happy with the end result, I thoroughly enjoyed making it, which is what counts. I chose this colour scheme as it was the only option that didnt involved lozenge artwork, im not a huge fan of that look. Im quite happy with the doped linen look but not sure I have nailed the blue. Had one nightmare session when putting the top wing on. I scratched the paintwork, drilled a hole through the wing, bent a strut. Then when I had finally got it on and glued, I went back a few hours later and another strut
  5. Hi all Here is my RAN A4G Skyhawk finally finished 4 months after my last post -it is a shelf of doom rebuild. WIP link here - https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235027738-ran-a4g-skyhawk/ The main list of parts used and some of the detailing as follows - Avionix A4E resin cockpit Aires resin Wheel bays and white metal landing gear set AMS resin wheels Eduard slat and vortex generators etch SAC Buddy Pod Master refuelling probe and cannon barrels Flight Path USN Carrier Deck set provided the ladder and wheels chocks
  6. 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.
  7. Hi everyone, just finished this and thought I'd post a few pics. Had a lot of satisfaction while building this, it seemed to go well and I seemed to fly through it in a month or so which is super fast for me. I am in awe of the men who actually flew these things. As I was making it i was struck by the fragility of what the real thing must have been like. Surely one dodgy landing and the plane would crumple. This is the plane that Lanoe Hawker was killed in after a dogfight with the Red Baron. The blurb with the kit says Richthofen described his duel with Hawker as "the
  8. Hi Steve Long or any other ex RAN Skyhawk maintainers - I'm embarking on a long term restoration of an old 1/32 Hasegawa A4 Skyhawk of mine that ended up on the SOD - just wondering if I can get some guidance on the cockpit colours - I've seen some colour photos and it looks basically a mix of light greys & black instruments - ejection seat and parachute packs colours too - specifically looking for RAN A4G colours for the cockpit which I assume might be standard USN? - I am in the process of fitting an Avionics resin cockpit set. CJP
  9. Hi guys and gals, Can you believe this is my first Messerschmitt 109? I've been modelling for years and never got round to making one of these seminal aircraft! Well, I've now broken my duck so here's the very nice Revell G-6 Late kit in a dramatic nightfighter scheme (Red 2, 1. NJG) from an AIMS decal sheet. There are seven more versions on the sheet so it was great value. The aircraft was painted in Colourcoats enamels (still the best model paint I've ever used, and shall continue to do so!) I used RLM 74/75/76 and RLM 02 with an overspray of
  10. My first real post here. Finished this one a couple of months back. I made life a bit difficult trying to replicate this aircraft. Quite a bit of dispute whether it had a yellow tail or white. Nose gun troughs were only described as "light" in the crash report, too. Great kit to make & detail. Really enjoyed it.
  11. This is my first entry to a group build but as I had just picked up the kit on eBay and intended to build it straight-away it seemed logical to join the build. The kit is the Hasegawa 1/32 P-40E Warhawk and at this point in time I'm not sure what markings I'm aiming for. The kit provides a Dark Earth/Dark Green P-40E 'Texas Longhorn' in New Guinea in 1942 and a China based aircraft in similar markings. I've got some old Superscale decals on order for Texas Longhorn and I'll have a look at those before choosing the final scheme. Anyway, here's the kit: With
  12. Hallo again Now I finished my Stahltaube from WNW. Actually it was not an easy kit. My first small fault was a front bulkhead, which was misaligned. Here I had to do some restoration work at the front part of the fuselage. Well, after this my next challenge was the filling process. I usually worked with Surfacer. Here, it did not work at all. So I went on with super glue, as my husband told me to try. This worked perfect. So, after all this, the paint job was next. Here I was in the wonderful situation, to have close examined a replica of the Etrich Taube, some years ago. So I could adapt
  13. Hallo again, This kit is a joy! Really. If anybody wants to know how to do the rigging, just ask. I will explain it! There is nothing to say, as the kit is perfect. Happy modeling
  14. I decided the Depredussin as my only 1/32 model is looking awfully lonely and needs a companion, another racer, again one that was largely ahead of it's time (but had many aerodynamic issues so never raced) the Bristol Type 72 racer . Should be pretty straightforward (construction is very similar to later WWI types but there's no rigging or visible cylinder heads), all except the undercarriage and the ducting around the nose, which will require a bit of figuring. Strange to think that only 9 years separates it from the Depredussin. Keel and formers
  15. This is a build from a couple of years ago which has been resurrected and cleaned up. When I built this I was quite pleased with it until I was taking the pictures. I was trying to take a picture to compare to the one shot of the real aircraft I could find. I just couldn't get the angle quite right and it dawned on me that I have a model with one wing slightly low! I did take the model around the show circuit and only a very few noticed but it nagged at me and she was swiftly retired to the Loft. However, a friend loved it and started his Mk.II. Forewarned by my problem has done a splendid job
  16. Supercharger Intake for Bf109G-10/K in 1/32 scale from Hasegawa. Supercharger intake intended for Hasegawa’s Bf109K/G-10 and for our future G-6AS conversion and G-10 correction set for Revell sets.
  17. Hot on the heels of my last Kitty Hawk build comes this OV-10 Bronco, built as a USAFE FAC aircraft based in Germany in the 80s. It's a strange kit in keeping with Kitty Hawk's reputation for over-complexity but builds up very nicely given the appropriate application of effort, determination and swearing! I painted it with MRP paints for the greens and Xtracrylix for the grey. Decals weer from the kit and went on well with a bit of MicroSol. The base is one of those ubiquitous examples from Coastal Kits. I had a go at detailing the cockpit with various thicknesse
  18. Hello My intention to build the Corsair of Tamiya in 1/32, I delayed a very long time. The reason was that I have a BIGSIN from Eduard. My experience in installing such Brasin components is almost entirely negative to this day. Take the cockpit as an example. Nobody could tell me that it fits or not. A modeler has written a book about it, where the secrets for some money may be explained. The manufacturer has made no test of fit accuracy of Brasin components in the Tamiya kit. This is what the Eduard Helpdesk has told me. After you could even read in this forum, my funny ex
  19. Hey everyone! Well, here goes for my first build & first "in progress" post on this forum=> as mentioned in my very first introduction post, I'm back into modelling after about 10 years inactivity in the hobby and i chose Wingnut Wings Fokker E.II "Max Immelmann" as my very first kit to get things started again. Quite a challenge as there are many firsts involved with this build: first 1/32 scale model, first WW1 aircraft model, first time working with EZ line, first time working with turnbuckles etc. But i love the quality of this kit and with enough time and patience, i th
  20. This is my eighth completion for 2019, the Hasgawa 1/32 Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate which went under the Allied reporting name of 'Frank'. It represents an aircraft of the 101st Sentai based either at Taisho Airbase near Osaka, at the end of the war, or at Miyakonojo Airbase on Kyushu Island in June 1945; most sources state the latter. This is one of Hasegawa's older 'new tool' kits dating from 2004, and its' age is apparent when compared to the Ki-44 kit that I finished last, it is a bit more clunky and primit
  21. Hi all, This is a build blog of the very nice Italeri Starfighter in 1/32. I'm building it as a commission/present for a work colleague's father who flew them for the Royal Netherlands AF in the late 70s/early 80s. It's quite a familiar and popular kit and there are many builds of it available online. Mine's not intended to be an "event build" but just a simple step-by-step to see how a big, nicely-produced kit like this can be built and adjusted without resorting to masses of expensive aftermarket bits! This is the intended subject: LINK to original copyrig
  22. This set convert Revell Bf109G-6 into Bf109G-6/AS with standard oil cooler. The set is cast from polyurethane resin. For the photo is painted Tamiya AS-12.
  23. Hi folks I’ve finished this tonight and have taken photo’s in the garage under LED lighting as it’s way too gusty outside. The story of this started for me as a kid spotting at Boscombe Down during any holiday. I vividly remember the Tornado there and it flying locally and over the ranges at Larkhill. Fast forward to modern times and information becomes available that the aircraft I was watching was XZ630. This was the 12th pre-production aircraft so wasn’t the final build standard. These aircraft were given “P” numbers and thus was known as P.12. The kit - I really only build 1/32
