  1. I have decals coming for my Airfix 1/72 build, Admiral Prune, so I decided to do this one and use the Oor Wullie decals for my 1/72 Revell kit. It has lots of issues but I will attempt to fix the worse ones. I will move the pilot seat 4 mm forward, add 2 degrees to the wing dihedral, add the DF loop and use a spare set of 1/72 Airfix tires for the main landing gear. Not sure if I will fix, replace or just let the tail wheel go.---John
  2. Here's my 1/72 AW101, finished in the colours of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police, built for the helicopters group build. It's converted from the Revell Merlin HC.3, which required a change of the window configuration and a few other detail differences. Decals were (mostly) custom printed, paint was Tamiya and Gunze (although I think the dayglo was AK real colour). Thoroughly enjoyable build, experimented with a few new things, windows didn't work out quite as planned but I learned a lot. Build thread is here. thanks for looking Julian
  3. Hello everyone.... This one of my three builds for this group build. I will be building this as Gregory Pappy Boyington’s 883 his go to Corsair during the time that VMF-214 were in the Slot. The decals in the kit actually combine 17786 and 16883 aircraft into one. Incorrect though they are most of the decals will be used for the build. All I need do is change the side #’s from 86 to 883. 17786 was famously used for a series of photo’s and an article shortly before Pappy was shot down and Captured. The obligatory sprue shots. Im not sure i will use the resin
  4. Hi all, I'm going to pick the collective BM brain on Mi-24V Hind colours. I'm doing the old 1990's Soviet camo from a machine used in East Germany (the one with the clover leaf pattern). Does anyone know if the colour call-outs in the 1/72 Revell/Zvezda kit is accurate? Also while i'm here, I've seen both gull grey and light blue used in the cabin interior, does anyone know which to use for this scheme? Lastly if anyone has any suggestions for the dark grey cockpit colour that would be great, thanks!
  5. Hi, A second Ju-86 of my shelf. Together with high altitude recce version (Ju 86 R1, which I posted recently) I did also much smaller conversion of civil Z-2 into Z-7 converted then into bomber in South Africa. Depicted "647" was one of such machines. She served in 12 Sq of SAAF, Ethiopia 1941 acting against Italians, I guess. There are discrepencies in sources on top wing roundls ("A1" or "B" - I have chosen A1 roundels, since on some poor quality photos those marks has some bright fragments which can be interpreted as sight of white form A1 mark. Now there is a conversion by Kora, but I
  6. Hi all, I finished this a couple of weeks ago but haven't had a chance to take any pictures until now, its the 1/72 Revell Halifax B I/II finished as a GR II, I used the Freightdog improvement set and the raised fairing for the dorsal turret and the Tollerton nose, decals were from the kit and spares box. I know its not a patch on the recent Halifax kits posted on here in recent weeks but I enjoyed making it and Ive always had a soft spot for the Coastal Command scheme. Hope you enjoy. Willy
  7. Hello, Coming back here with my latest helo build. The subject is one of the Seaking variants Indian Navy operates. Varaiant is mk42C aka charlie variant aka mickey mouse. Kit used is 1/72 Revell Westland seaking MK41 (45 years of SAR). The kit has parts to build multiple variants but does not have some parts for the variant I picked. So had to scratch build the numerous antennas , nose radar dome (hence the name mickey mouse) with styrene and balsa wood. Used model master acrylics and oils for weathering. Kit is a gift from a good friend of mine and he also helped me with the deca
  8. Hi All I going to build the Revell F-4F Phantom Pharewell. The model is a nice blue plastic, so first thing is to change that. The kit looks nice and I think it should go together well. I will post some build photos as I go.
  9. Hello Chaps, Today I present you my recent kit converted from Revell !/72 Hakwer Hurricane Mk II with Quickboost propeller. Enjoy, Robert

    Tu-22 LL?

    Hi All, I've seen this cheeky little number on ebay, seems good value addition to my 1/72 Tu-22: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/L-M-1-72-Tu-22-LL-Blinder-set-BONUS-/331177734533 But can anyone explain to me what the variant Tu-22 'LL' means...it's not listed on the wikipedia entry for the bomber: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tupolev_Tu-22 Any thoughts? And has anyone bought and used the resin conversion? Cheers James
  11. Hello all, to take my mind of a ship build that has stalled somewhat, I thought I needed to do something quick and easy, so a biplane seemed just the job. Add into the mix the colourful nature of the beast and I was hooked. The Revell 1/72 Stearman Kaydet. Right from the outset fun was the name of the game, so there are no additions to what came in the box except glue and paint. Oh yes, and some rigging. The kit was pretty basic, and had a raised legend under the lower wing central section which said Copyright Revell 1981. I thought this was a much older kit than that. That got sande
  12. I will be making the 1/72 Revell boxing of the hasegawa kit with the wolfpack conversion. Still works out cheaper than the haseg with new sprues. I shall be using the Combat Decals Libyan Spring Revolution, 2011 sheet.
