  1. Conceived as an anti Zeppelin interceptor; The PB 31E was designed to carry a crew of 5 with two Lewis guns and a fixed 1 1/2 pounder gun, it was intended to be able to patrol for up to 18 hours and wait for passing airships. The PB is for Pemberton Billing the designer who sold his interests in the company to the other directors who promptly changed the name to Supermarine. So this is the first design by the company responsible for the Spitfire. The name Supermarine came from a wonderful piece of logic; if a ship that was under the water was a submarine then a plane that was on top
  2. Well there seemed to be something missing from the line up of this very impressive and very diverse GB, there's no Phantom's!! Can't have that in an Interceptors GB now can we, especially as she was first introduced into service as an interceptor for the US Navy. I won't be building a US Navy one though as I shall be building an F-4E. My choice is to build a USAF one from the 57th FIS based in Iceland in the ADC grey scheme. On to the kit itself. I shall be building the Hasegawa 1/48 kit which whilst not the newest or best around is still a good kit and I actually have one (okay maybe mor
  3. Hey everyone In conjunction with my Gladiator build and hot on the heals of my 1/48 Eduard Spitfire (with a bit of resin thrown in) I will make a start on this... I have wanted to build a Phantom since I came back to modelling 10 years ago. Its aggressive lines are awesome and painted as an RAF bird I think they look particularly cool. I have a little AM in the way of quick boost Martin Baker Mk.7's and some resin rear view mirrors for the canopy's. I'll make a start on her a little later on today. Cheers Iain
  4. Hello all, Here is my entry for this GB. As per the title, I'll be replicating two aircraft that have had responsibility for the Northern QRA for the United Kingdom - the Tornado F.3 and Eurofighter Typhoon. Both these kits were initially part of my 'RAF QRA through the years' project but that was getting a bit long in the tooth and having recently visited Lossiemouth, playing about with my first proper DSLR camera and various lenses, I wanted to build these separately. So without much further ado; Kits: The Typhoon will be marked as ZK306 of 1(
  5. My entry for this GB will be an Airfix 1/48 Gloster Javelin FAW Mk9R - as flown by the CO Wing Commander A.J. Owen circa 1962 I've got some Eduard etch that was being sold at the Driffield show a few years back - it was half price! I'll certainly use the cockpit set and being black there is no need to worry about matching Eduard's colour. Not sure about the wheel well and air brake etches but will decide when I look at the plastic in detail. The only online picture I can find of this airframe (XH889) is from 1961 and has the code letter "L" - perhaps the WingCo cha
  6. Hi all, finished as part of the ongoing and excellent Panther STGB here are some pics of my recently finished Tamiya 1/48 Panther G. She is finished in a temporary winter camouflage scheme copied from a picture, unfortunately the unit and whereabouts are unknown but it was taken in January 1945. The kit is typical Tamiya and goes together with no trouble at all, the paints I used are Revell Aquacolour acrylic ones and they performed very nicely. The temporary white is my Mig products, the mud is homemade and the snow is Citadel Valhallan Blizzard.
  7. After some deliberation and almost starting a Jaguar, I've decided to plunge into this rather complicated Alley Cat Canberra conversion. I'll be making a hemp one I think, as sometime in the future I'm planning to do the TT18 in green/grey camo with the black & yellow underside. The T17 was flown by England rugby legend Rory Underwood, our record Test try scorer (49 tries in 85 games between 1984-96) who was also an RAF pilot during his playing career before rugby turned professional! First question, (possibly for @canberra kid
  8. Hi All; Well yes, a somewhat common subject for this one but I can't resist a controversy and this is one of the mothers of all modelling controversies... My approach is to build it up using as much circumstantial evidence as I can gather in addition to, but not solely reliant on the photos, and then trying to piece together a plausible interpretation that's consistent with all that; and Occam's razor. I'm using the Airfix 1/48 scale kit and will build mostly out of the box. As you'll see though, I can't resist a few enhancements that satisfy some of my pet peeves abo
  9. Hello Gentlemen, Here's my recently completed Beaufighter Mk.X, from RAF 22 Sq. in Burma, circa 1944. This kit was first build in 1999, as a coastal command TF X, but with the years, skills ameliorations and techniques enahnced and it cried for a restauration! Paints are AK real Colors for the dark earth and dark green, Tamiya for the underside Ocean Grey. Decals from the Extradecals range. The gunner cupola didn't took benefit of paint removal and masking, so the result is a bit down level, and the radar cooler additional scoop on the upper fuselage is standi
  10. I fancy having a go at this with an Italian beauty! I will be building the SMER 1/48 Macchi MC200 Saetta. There are two finishing options provided on the decal sheet. One is a machine in a green and sand "mottle" with grey undersides, the other in green uppersurface with grey underneath, captioned as "Greece 1942". I shall be following many (if not all) of the entries for this GB. Looking forward to Saturday when it'll be "Tally Ho, chaps/Horrido/Banzai/insert appropriate fighter jock slang here"!
  11. Well, after the 6 month Blenheim build I finished a little while ago, I fancied something quick and easy and a change of scene, so out came the 50th Anniversary Apollo 11 kit from Revell that my wife had bought me for my birthday. Even something as basic as this ancient kit had its difficulties though, and I agonised over the very basic paint instructions that Revell supply! A very simple kit, but little things like cutting and fitting the windows out of plastic sheet, and fixing the gold foil to the lander, were still challenging. Seeing these shots has reminded me I forgot to take the maski
  12. As I have worked my way through Cold War 1/48 military model aircraft kits it has become apparent to me that a chunk of aircraft modelled in 1/72 just don’t have a kit in 1/48. I think the size puts manufacturers off, and there probably isn’t the demand to make tooling up worth it. So as a result the non front line aircraft tend to get patchy or no representation. Think about it - no Dominie, no Jetstream, no Varsity or Valletta, no light transport - F-27, C-160. Occasionally kits appear - I believe there was once a DHC Buffalo, although I have never seen one, a you can buy a 3D printed An
  13. Hi all, here is my entry. I've had this in the stash for a good few years now, might as well build it! When released this new kid on the block just about usurped the Hasegawa kit as the kit to build in 1/48. Of course it has now been bettered by the Tamiya kit. It's been a while since I built a 48 scale jet so be gentle.... Anyway the intention is straight from the box but with aftermarket decals for an Iranian bird in the greyish/blue camo (I've already done the Fujimi kit in 1/72 in the original classic scheme. Will try and post a few more pics of the contents later - work first!
  14. Here's a late finisher from the BoB GB. Unfortunately not my best build, but by rushing on the last day to meet the deadline I only pushed completion further and further back. At the time I was taking some meds for a chest infection that gave me shakes like I've never had before, so we were painting some cracking camouflage patterns - only I was trying to paint straight lines!!! Here she is, she didn't get the final weathering I'd planned, I may pick her up again in the coming months and give her some belly oil stains etc but it's not a job for today!
  15. Hi all May I present the latest build, the Italeri/Hasegawa Typhoon. I posted a WiP which is here for anyone interested: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235081953-italerihasegawa-typhoon-ib/. I think i'll leave WiP to those that are doing something more adventurous with their kits in future as I don't think i offered much in mine but I think it helped me finish the build a bit quicker if nothing else (1 month)! This kit threw a few things at me but unusually it was mainly the painting (I had to re-do the fuselage stripes as put them in the wrong pla
  16. Dornier Do-17Z 8./KG76 (F1+FS) Heitsch crew made a forced landing near Castle Farm, Shoreham, England Battle of Britain 15th September 1940 after a low level chase by two Spitfires from No.609 Squadron, Flight Lieutenant Dundas and Pilot Officer Tobin. The tremendous air battle fought between Fighter Command and the Luftwaffe on 15th September 1940 represented the climax of the Battle of Britain, and it has been celebrated as Battle of Britain Day ever since. The 8/KG 76 Dornier 17Z piloted by Feldwebel Heitsch was part of a force of about 100 German bombers which approached London
  17. When you're up against deadlines and have a bench full of incomplete GB models, the only sensible option to get going again is to start another one. I don't currently have a completed 109 in the collection, so this is a chance to rectify that. This Italeri kit is a rebox of the Academy kit that was a re-pop of the Hobbycraft kit from the early 90s. I've built a Hobbycraft 109G so I'm hoping that will stand me in good stead for this one. I'd bookmarked the kit because of the markings but wasn't mad keen to get one at full price. Jadlam came to the rescue - they had it in their clea
  18. Hi comrades! My next project will be Airfix Lightning in 1/48. I have F.6 boxing and I will build the Saudi F.53 model in NMF. Why RSAF - because they use Lightnings in real combat over the Yemen, why NMF - this is the livery of every RSAF Lightnings most of their service life. Combat load will be underwing Matra 155 rocket pods. The pods will be from Reskit, pylons will be scratch built, dedicated sources - here: The model will be riveted (it means the long build), otherwise NMF will look wrong Planned aft
  19. Well, after searching and searching for a suitable base I have chosen to use the support of a photo frame. If someone wants to see the process that I have followed in this model, they can do so at the following link. Andrés S.
  20. Here is my entry to the group build. Fingers crossed for a good result as this is a quite complicated kit for my skill level. I am planning to finish the model in Syrian Air Force markings but it will probably just the markings as I don't really care about the accuracy much and have no idea if Syria used this Mig-23 variant or not.
  21. Hallo My first was: This kit is from Eduard. It is absolute superior to Tamiya new Spitfire kit. Due to surface detail and logical design. The airscrew is significant, the first two blade airscrew which is a model! Not a stick full of sinkholes as it was from Airfix or analogic from Classic Airframe's Hurricane! The new TFace mask are just to recommend! Well, that is it. Happy modelling
  22. FIrst up Collect-Aire's XF-103 Thunderceptor. There will be some modifications, I'm going to attempt to scratch build the weapons bays and improve the engine along with making the other openings look like they should have had it gone into production. Also going to try and go for a natural metal finish. (Crossing fingers)This may take a while
  23. Due to complications with my move I will be stuck in my current location for the winter so looks like i'll be back at it for the meantime. My next kit will be this ridiculously detailed kit from Zoukei-Mura, their 1/48 scale Focke Wulf Ta 152. I have been modelling for about 13 years and amazingly I had never heard of these guys until recently and now I eagerly await what else they will make in 48 scale in the future. If you've ever built any Zoukei-Mura aircraft please feel free to share your experiences.
  24. Hi I started this one during the Shark Mouth GB last year, but got to the part of trying to sort out the intakes an it ended up back in the box. In fact, until last weekend for various reasons I hadn't done any modelling since then. I am determined to get my mojo back and to get this one finished this time. Initial pictures from last time are here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235057782-revell-148-tornado-gr-4-zg750-pinky/ Hopefully I'll have some progress to show in the next day or two. This one is intended to be ZG750 in the desert pink scheme.
  25. Right. Here we go then. First WIP for Quack. I thought I'd have a go at a WIP thread, never having done one before. The kit is this one....the Revell / Hasegawa 1/48 Spey Phantom FGR2. I fell in love with these brutes growing up near Leuchars, and loved to watch and listen as they thundered out on training or QRA sorties. OK in fairness they were largely FG1s from 892 Sqh FAA, or 43 / 111 Squadrons when the airframes were gifted to the RAF, buy I can't find a 1/48 FG1 so this'll have to do for now. With any luck ZM will get around to issuing Spey Phantoms in 1/48 sca
