  1. Hi all! Having been tweaked a little on the subject of WIPs and my lack of recent submissions, and feeling a tad guilty, I thought I'd offer up one of my next builds. It is the superb Modelsvit Su-7BMK, which I will build OOB essentially. I love the ruggedness of this machine and only wish I could have seen one or more in flight! It will be my second go at this kit, having enjoyed it thoroughly the first time around. I warn you all that it will be slow-time as I fit in in between my other interests and domestic chores! ;). Here is the box and the contents. Typical of M
  2. Eduard Profipack Fokker DVII (Alb) finished as the machine of Ltn d R Carl Degelow of Jasta 40s, Lomme, August 1918. Thanks for looking. AW
  3. Here's my sixth completion of 2020, the Arma Hobby Yak-1b from the Expert boxing: Representing No.2 of 148 IAP, flown by Ltn. Mikhail Shkomplektov, an unfortunate pilot who mistakenly landed at the Luftwaffe airfield at Anapa on 11 May 1943. You've got to feel for him, I've no idea of his eventual fate but it could well have proved fatal one way or another. I built it out of the box with the exception of the addition of a set of QuickBoost resin exhausts designed for the kit - I didn't intend
  4. Next on the table: L.079 T-6G Texan. This is the armed version normally, but I got lucky this week and managed to obtain a conversion kit from Kiwi Models at half price. In the box: White plastic No canopy or decals. That's where the conversion kit comes in. Minus: Not the best moulding, but it will be handy to use as a template for the kit parts. Plus: two vacform canopies for the Harvard IIB model, with the extension behind the glasswork to fit the fuselage that came with it. And white-metal extended exhaust.
  5. This kit, very similar to this Israeli Eagle, which I built in 2017 This kit from Kit Rescue at IPMS Avon2018 show. Halh of a double-deal with this Italeri EF-111A Raven, negotiated down to £15 for the pair. For which I have ideas to contrast the grey camo. But approach with caution, as the decals on that linked Academy were VERY fragile. And a view of the parts. This kit has raised surface detail.
  6. Mach 2 1/72 with homemade decals otherwise straight from the box Steve
  7. Avro Canada CF-100 Canuck - or 'Clunk' as it was known by the canadians. Hoping to do the Belgian version but I still have some research to do - and have to acquire the decals. The kit is the gun armed version - the belgians flew the wingtip pod FFAR armed version, not sure yet whether it can be done from this box. If everything fails, I'm building the canadian version. OK looking white plastic, it looks bit simplified in places but I think we can make a decent looking model out of it. Aftermarket that I am thinking in addition to the decals ar
  8. Hi all, after those months of waiting, this keenly expected GB has finally arrived! I shall enter it with one of my favorite French Navy aircraft: the Etendard IV M. This beautiful kit is a Christmas present (with a few other gems) from our Scottish Father Christmas Pat, aka @JOCKNEY Here are a few photos of the box and sprues: All in all, it looks like a lovely kit! I have to finish my Me 109 for the BoB GB first and then try and make some serious progress on the Huey. But I am looking forward to this
  9. I first saw this in the window of what was then James & Lendon (now just Lendons) in Cardiff in 1979, together with the Lansen. I built the Lansen earlier this year so now I will build the MIg. Released in 1973 ref 251, this is a slightly newer boxing with the same ref. I am not very good with NMF so this should be interesting. Pete
  10. Hi all, after finishing the Saracen I started a new project. I don't remember why I bought this kit, as I am not really interested in WW II vehicles, maybe it was the strange look of this light tank or I just wanted to see how a kit of this company builds, I don't know. Anyway, I looked at it and decided that it was about time to pull it out of the stash. I forgot to take pics of the sprues and started right away as the kit landed on the workbench. These are the main parts that make up the hull. The green plastic is on the softer side
  11. Now I have the AV8S Matador finished I will start a kit I have had in the stash for over a year, I've been waiting for the Welcome to the Jungle decal sheet to come off back order with Hannants but I have ordered it direct from the CTA website instead so I'm going to make a start on the kit. So as this is a kit in this scale I haven't seen built on BM I done the obligartry sprue shots. The kit looks well moulded with no signs of flash, the clear IP is different the other kits I've done and the decals look well printed. Hopefully it should build into a nice model.
  12. Now the Harrier's are complete the next kit out of the stash is Eduards Fw190 Grunherz dual boxing. Another of Eduard dual combo kits with sprues to build 2 complete aircraft, but it not... The box has 2 of what Eduard call small parts trees, all the common parts needed for all variants from A3 up to A8, there is an additional sprue for the F series which is mostly weapons. and 2 canopy trees, again cover all Fw190 variants A3 to F8 but has 4 main trees, one each of sprue C, G H and J. each one slightly different so you can build the Fw190 A5 light w
  13. Oh what the heck - suppose I might as well throw the last of the Heller kits from my stash into the ring! As my "CV" states, my interests include a number of subjects and whilst planes were and still are my "first love" (after my family of course), I am rather fond of large lumps of metal on tracks, usually with a ruddy big gun - no comments about Phallic symbols please! So much so in fact that until recently I was a "Friend of the RAC Tank Museum" down in Bovington, but the combination of knackered knees and a 300+ mile round trip have made visits virtually impossible. When I was made redunda
  14. I recently bought this kit as it was a subject I had not seen before. The kit itself is actually for the drawing board version - KI87-II which was designed to prevent the turbo supercharger overheating issues present in the prototype KI87. It was never built due to the end of the war. My own rule of modelling is to try to build aircraft that actually existed so luckily, the kit comes with the fuselage and parts for the KI87 prototype which was built before the war ended. I will built that, rather than the KI87-II. Some mocked-up KI87-II colour schemes which
  15. Hello Everyone, My first try at making ocean waves. I use my old Hobbyboss 1/72 Sh-60 Jayhawk kit and I modify this by adding rudimentary pilots, open door and a winch wire. The Rotating blades are made by using Clear Acrylic sheet which was masked and painted with RED White and Yellow Stripes. Black was Painted on the bottom in a fading stroke. The waves are made using silicone rubber and Baking Soda. I put two layers and I think it did a good enough job. The base is basic plywood and topped with foam and acrylic putty. Paints used are acry
  16. Hi! I've seen this campany and this set for ona and a half year(s?) ago, and made me realy excited. But since then these are still out of stock and no informations I could find. Neither the H.R.K. answered my e-mail. Anyway, I show you the drawings. Aligator Katran You can find them here: http://www.helicast.pro/helicopters/
  17. An MTO GB without a Savoia-Marchetti 79? Don't think so! We must give all those Spits and P-40s something to shoot at, right? Anyways: had my eye on this one for a while and this GB fits nicely. Got some extras for it: I predict some cutting and splicing is going to take place... As the title says, this one will be the Panterellia based 278 Squadriglia one: Here's the original, seen on Panterellia. The fortress like structure was built against one of the hill slopes on the airfield.
  18. A couple of years ago I built a a Roden Fokker DVII in the Eleventh Hour group build, it was the first of several that I had in my stash and the experience, frankly, put me off building any of the others. The kit was beautifully detailed but the fit was awful, especially the lower wing and tail plane to fuselage joints that required a lot of fettling. Then there was the issue of the struts, which were simply too long and even after trimming gave the top wing an odd angled forward pitch, seemingly there was something wrong with the geometry. So when Eduard released their DVIII I replaced the
  19. I bought an old Modeldecal sheet from Hannats to do a couple of matchbox Meteor NF kits that I had somehow acquired. This also had a somewhat colourful set of marking for a Hawk from 4 FTS/CFS in 1987: I am not at all au fait with Hawks or modern era (not that 1987 is modern) jets, so this may or may not work. It will be only OOB and the decals may well be interesting to apply!
  20. Thank you for all the encouragement; I am going with the Airfix B-57, an old kit unopened kit; overall black scheme like the one in my reference below. As @trickyrich notes these handful of planes were in theatre for a very long time so I am thinking of a well worn scheme. The RB-57E is a typical MRCA, (Must Refurbish Canberra Again; a riff on what the Tonka was called before 40 years of service) being a mod of the twin stick and target towing B-57E. I am a hairy stick person; any thoughts on enamel that is nearly black? I am going mainly OOB; I have seen people cross-kit 4 kits to
  21. The Short SB5 was built to test the wing shape design for the EE Lightning and could be configured for three different angles of sweep, it could also be fitted with a T-tailed rear fuselage. The real aircraft is now preserved at the RAF Museum Cosford. This is the Maintrack vacform with home made decals for it's later life as Tester 28 from the Empire Test Pilots School. Steve
  22. Hi everybody, this should be a quick finish. Almost finished and ready to add decal shortly. Here is the build thread from many moons ago: Cheers for now. JR
  23. Built from the Airfix Beagle Basset, straight from the box plus home made decals. Steve
  24. The Handley Page HP88 was built to test the radical crescent wing for the Victor, unfortunately it crashed after only a few weeks of test flying. This started off as a Novo Attacker for the fuselage, I added scratchbuilt wings & tail, home made decals. Steve
