  1. Hello! I am going to attempt to build this kit as one of the early ragwings that arrived in Canada in Spring 1939. Here is a link to some questions I had and the answers I received: I have started by removing a few major components and cleaning/sanding edges. I have thinned down the insides of the wing trailing edges, hoping to avoid the thick edges that Airfix gives you. So far so good. It's been awhile since I last sat at the table and worked on styrene. Man, that can be hard on the back when you're old and out of shape. Anyhoos, here a picture to prove I
  2. Almost forgotten today, the 1927 Dole Race is one of the most infamous air races in history. An event which has come to symbolise the near-mania for risky over-water flights which followed in the wake of Lindbergh’s Atlantic flight. Hawaiian pineapple millionaire James Dole put up a $25000 prize for the first flight from Oakland, California to Honolulu, Hawaii. Expecting just a few, high-profile contenders, the organisers were surprised to receive multiple applications from pilots across the U.S., including some semi-amateurs keen to jump on the Lindbergh bandwagon. They decided th
  3. Having finished the Hellcat, it’s time for my contribution to this group build. Honest! I’d already decided on the RAAF’s Lancaster G-George, when I saw it was my lucky day with a master builder such as @Mancunian airman was also building the same kit and I could ride his coattails for mine. It was, therefore, the least I could do when he asked about some details on the preserved G-George at the AWM to go take some photos. The light in the ANZAC Hall is shockingly difficult to photograph in, but I’m quite happy with how they came out. Here’s a selection of the details requested; I h
  4. Good day, Here is my second completed kit for the year, the Special Hobby P-40K Warhawk. A brief overview of the kit and the processes I used............ 1. Paint ( Main colors ) A. Mission Models US Army Sand FS30277 B. Model Master Neutral Gray C. Model Master US Interior Green D. Secondary colors : Tamiya Metallic Gray, Chrome Silver, Titanium Silver, Flat Aluminum, Mission Models Tire Black, Model Master Gulf Armor Sand, Green Drab 2. Aftermarket items : Photo Etched US Seat Belts 3. Ki
  5. Greetings! Just completed from the Airfix Starter Set. I used Tamiya paints and weathering sets along with a gentle wash. A very nice kit with the possible exception of the exaggerated panel lines. Many thanks for having a look, questions and comments are always welcome. Cheers, Bill
  6. My Mikro-Mir Kalinin K-7 has survived the current vagaries of the international postal services and has finally arrived into my eager hands.... Ordered on-line from the Ukraine from :- https://amarket-model.com/ the kit was packed inside a stout carboard box with the contents cocooned in bubble wrap and although it took a while, it arrived undamaged - excellent service The impressive box art shows what the finished model should look like.... The massive wing is made from hollow fibreglass-resin with a superb glass-like surface finis
  7. Inspired by a conversation on another discussion group about building a Su-37 - I thought I'd have a go.... The discussion suggested combining the back end of the 1/72 scale two-seat Zvezda Su-30SM with the front end of the Zvezda Su-33 to make the single seat Su-37. A new longer (and slightly fatter) nose is needed - along with taller, square-tipped fins - plus a few other minor changes - but the whole thing looks do-able. I have both kits in my stash, so I got both out for comparison - and liked what I saw.... so here goes.... As t
  8. Hello, I would like to share with you the short serie of captured Heinkel He111 in british markings (1/72 scale). My father has finished two models out of three. 1) 2) Cheers Santiago
  9. Here's one I made earlier........... During a computer cleanout, I 're-discovered' my photos of a scratchbuilt A-90 Ekranoplan that I made some 20 years ago..... so I thought I'd share the build with you.... Excuse the quality of the photos - they are now quite old - and not the best I have ever taken. The build was inspired by the release of the Revell 1/44 scale A-90 - plus some drawings I found in the Russian magazine 'Aerohobby'.... The drawings are excellent - and most importantly - they have cross-sections, so they were scale
  10. It's finished - but I'm not happy with it..... It was a struggle all the way through - but I finally beat it into submission..... Sukhoi Su-17 Type R :- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sukhoi_Su-17_(1949) The whole front fuselage section could be detached in emergencies to act as an escape capsule..... As well as the undercarriage being ill-fitting and rather weak, the final indignity is that it's a tail sitter !! - so I had to make a prop from clear rod....
  11. The latest from A&A Models growing range of obscure Soviet aircraft - the 1949 Sukhoi Su-17 Type 'R' :- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sukhoi_Su-17_(1949) Box art.... Fuselage and port fin insert..... Wings, tailplanes and upper wing fences.... Engine, wheels, cockpit etc... Two decal sheets, open or closed canopy and etched fret. Not shown are the self-adhesive masks for the wheels and canopy. Painting guide - keyed to Humbrol enamels.....
  12. Just finished - the excellent Trumpeter Su-34 kit in 1/72 scale........ Trumpeter missed a few things - the curved fillet between the wing L/E and the ESM pod (when fitted)..... ... the Blind Flying curtains inside the cockpit..... .... and the APU exhaust outlet on top of the tailboom... Ken
  13. Hi all. I’m on a bit of a roll with Phantoms at the moment so here’s my second one for 2020 and fourth completion for the year so far. This is the 1/72 Hasegawa F-4EJ Phantom built as 69-0307 while it served with 1 and 6 squadrons during its time with the RAAF. It was returned to US service in 1973 where it was converted into an F-4G and operated in the Wild Weasel role. It met its demise when it was shot down as a QF-4G in 1997 :(. There’s a photo of 07 in the Wilson book lined up as a four ship departing with full bags and 6 500 pounders. I also like this
  14. By John Van Herreweghe Member of Model Club Eeklo Belgium Directly after the end of WW2 in Europe, Berlin had been divided in two halves, one side occupied by Stalin and the other side occupied by the US, Great Britain and France. On the first of April 1948, the Russians decided to block the corridors completely off from the West to Berlin. This restriction was for military and civilian means. In Berlin, 2.1 million Germans tried to survive the hardship in a bombed-out city. Besides that, the garrisons from the US, Great Britain and the France would be cut off from
  15. Friends, Here is my latest project, the Airfix Mig-17 Fresco. I was fortunate to receive this as a gift as the kit`s availability in the U.S. is very limited thus far. My thoughts and notes on this offering from Airfix............. 1. I used the following colors and brands to dress the Fresco : A. Tamiya Deep Green XF-26 B. Tamiya NATO Green. XF-67 C. Mission Models Aluminum D. Cockpit : Model Master Medium Gray E. Landing gear wells : Tamiya Titanium X-32 F. Landing gear struts : Tamiya Flat Aluminum XF-16 G.
  16. Just arrived - the latest kit from the Ukrainian enterprise of Modelsvit... the Myasischev M-55 'Geophysica' high-altitude observation aircraft. With each new release, Modelsvit are raising the bar for moulding quality - the crispness and engraved surface detail is simply stunning. Page 3 of the 12-page instruction booklet - note the 22-part K-36 ejection seat construction. Page 10 showing the painting and decal-placement guide. The superbly printed decal sheet - those sponsors logos are all per
  17. Hello friends, My apologies for the long period between postings. As you all are well aware of, life tends to get in the way of our hobby. Here is my latest project, the F-15I Ra`am from Great Wall Hobby in 72nd scale. Here are my thoughts of the kit......... 1. Built entirely out of the box. 2. Used acrylic paints for the airframe and weapons. 3. Used AK Interactive Extreme metal paints for the exhaust and natural metal sections. 4. Weapons ( GBU-31 JDAM, GBU-38 GPS guided, GBU-12 laser guided, AIM-120, & Python air-to-air missiles used from
  18. Hello friends, Here is the Hasegawa G4M2E “Betty” bomber with Ohka Kamikaze. I had completed this kit earlier in the year but now I finally got around to posting the pictures. My observations of this kit are as follows........... 1. Used “Hair Spray” technique to weather the subject. A. Mission Models IJN Deep green on the upper surface B. Tamiya Flat Black for the undersurface C. Alclad paint for the base silver / metal D. Used a moistened cloth rag to “peel” the paint. The Mission Model green came off easily but the Tamiya flat black to
  19. The last of the 'BiG MiG' kits from the Ukrainian company of Modelsvit - the record breaking 'E-166'......... The plastic is exactly the same as the E-152M kit - wiith appropriate differences (no missiles, canards etc..) The box art shows the E-166 on public display at Domodedovo airport..... The eight-page instruction booklet is clear and well-printed with easy to read construction diagrams The colour painting guide is keyed to Humbrol paints. The big difference is the new decal sheet - the blue
  20. Friends, After posting two WWII era aircraft, here is something more modern, the F-4G Wild Weasel version of the Phantom. I used the Hasegawa kit and posed in the early stage of Operation Desert Storm circa January, 1991. Early in the conflict, Phantoms toted four AGM-88 Harm missiles. This provided a bit of a difference for Phantoms usually carried 370 gallon external drop tanks on the outboard wing pylons. I added resin ejection seats and the AGM-88`s, AIM-7`s, and ECM pod came from the Hasegawa weapons set. Despite some “fiddly” challenges to this kit, I would recommend i
  21. This new resin kit from ABM represents the sole prototype of the Beriev R-1 jet-powered flying boat. Beautifully cast in flawless cream coloured resin, this is resin casting at its best. It is a comprehensive kit - excellently packaged - with fantastic service - 7 days from order to delivery (over the Christmas period). The box art depicts the R-1 flying over (presumably?) Beriev's base at Taganrog.... The comprehensive instructions are on two A3 sheets folded into a four-page A4 'booklet'.... Note that the col
  22. CAD images just arrived - ready to start moulding plastic....... I have no further information on actual release date - other than soon. Ken
  23. I have attached a link to the Caracal 1/72 decal sheet list; you can scroll down to see the FJ-2/3 sheets that will be released soon....can't wait! (I'm shafted, as my favorite FJ-2's are the natural metal VMF-235 Furies, so I will have to rely on the decals that come with the Sword kit for the most part), but I am betting many of you will be happy with the choices on the two sheets!) Mike http://www.caracalmodels.com/72scale.html
  24. Just finished - after a bit of a fight - the latest 'BIG MiG' from Modelsvit........ the MiG E-152-1.... Usual fare from Modelsvit - excellent panel detail, large sprue gates, superb decal sheet, canopy masks and etched fret - a complete package. I had trouble getting the fuselage halves to close up around the cockpit/intake trunking - but won in the end. The dummy K-9 missile are painted to look like AIM-7 Sparrows. Business end of the massive Tumanskiy R-15-300 turbojet.
  25. As I am building the latest iteration of the Sukhoi Su-34 - I thought I'd have a go at the earliest version - the T-10V1 Su-27IB. I originally thought of just grafting the original Su-27 tailboom onto the Italeri Su-34 kit - but the biggest problem I faced was filling in the mainwheel wells - they are huge on the Su-34 and cut into the intake sides - the whole area is totally different between the Su-27IB and production Su-34. So I have adopted the method that Sukhoi used - grafting the new side-by-side cockpit section front fuselage onto the rear of a tandem two-seat S
