  1. Hello, this is my last topic for today, the black Tonka from Italy. I used the Revell Kit to creat this nice Aircraft. The decals are from Syhart. It was not the easiest to apply them to the Kit and I am not a 100% happy with the result. Another task was to paint it extremely black, almost like dust on it, but I think it looks good enough. And again here are some pics:
  2. Hello Guys, just another Tonka that I want to show you. Lucky me, and finally, I finished this one. Started that Tonka almost two years ago, but stopped working on it somehow. Now, motivated by this forum and the Special Interest group of Tonkas, I finished this one here. It is the good old Revell Kit, with a huge sheet of decals. I thought it will never end to apply them, but it did. Aircraft has been painted with Tamiya Colors and an Airbrush. I like the result, and here are some pictures for you:
  3. Well started this on Friday afternoon, after picking it up for less than £3 from HobbyCraft. Its the old tool, so I am sure most are aware of the kits shortcomings. I built it OOB as an 87 Sqn bird, the only addition being some Tamiya tape seatbelts, some dials picked out on the IP using cocktail sticks, and a small bit of stretched sprue on top of the tail in order to attach the antenna cable. I will upload better pictures when I can get some taken outside in natural light, but for now, her you all go:
  4. Hello All, I had this half-finished Defiant lurking in the closet. It was one of my first models after returning to the hobby and it's been stalled for several years now. I had painted the dark earth and duck egg blue, neither of which I liked, and had made a mess of the turret. I pulled it out over Christmas and lost the turret somewhere in the process. Problem solved! I replaced it with a Matchbox Halifax turret (an optional part in the kit) with a scratch built interior and guns. The turret has some elaborate interior structure to hold the guns in place, which I replaced with some bent acetate sheet for the gunner's aiming window. I also added some black-painted paper strips for the new framing. It's a nice kit and looks spot on when compared to photographs. I modified "PS-A" to "PS-V" and added a new home made serial number. Someone described the Defiant as a bad idea, well executed and the last picture shows off how sleek it could look... Compare the last picture to http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d6/Boulton_Paul_Defiant.jpg. Thanks for looking, Adrian
  5. The snowfall means that there was no post today, nor is any likely before Monday, so I've dug around the stash to unearth a fine example of the dear old Airfix 1/72 VI/II/XVIII Just like my other favourite, the Airfix 1/48 Hurricane, I've always found that what this kit lacks in modern standards of detail is more than compensated for by the pleasing look of the finished model. Although the decision has, in part, been taken out of my hands I've also decided that I'm just going to build her as she comes... namely with the very basic cockpit. You won't be able to see through the standard canopy anyway! The decal sheet in the kit features an all-black NF.II - DD712 of 23 Squadron, RAF. carrying the code YP-R. The instructions depict her as a standard NF.II with the external 'coathanger' aerial of its AI Mk IV radar. However, while this might have been fitted on delivery in mid-1942, photographs of DD712 depict her after the removal of the radar set in readiness for her later role as a cross-channel Intruder. Effectively, then, DD712 should be a black-painted F.II day fighter. So that's what I'm going to do. If nothing else it's a chance to get my eye in before the bits for my prototype arrive!
  6. North American P-51D Mustang 44-14722 'Temptation' 357th FG, 362nd FS Leiston Airfield November 1944 Pilot Lt. Matthew S Martin, 'Waddy' 414722 'Temptation was the mount of Lt. Matthew S Martin 'Waddy' of Kentucky. Sadly Lt Marting was to see out the end of the war from behind the wire of Stalag Luft 1 after he was shot down on 5th March 1944. Kit: Airfix A01004 Scale: 1:72 Paint: Gunze, Tamiya, Alcad. Extras: None Build thread: LINK Built for the Defence of the Reich Group Build
  7. Well this is my second WIP thread, and will be my fourth model of the year. Many will not count my Revells Micro Wings as they are small simple kits, but as a returnee to modelling, they have helped me get back in the swing of things, and also my Tornado GR1 1/144. So in a bigger scale (and more than likely the scale I will stay with due to space/finance etc) this is my 1/72 Messerschmit BF 109E 4, from Airfix. I hope I am not biting off more than I can chew, as I have read about wing dihedralm issues, problems removing some of the smaller parts from the sprues etc, and also the fact that the Airfix painting instructions are incorrect apparently for the aircraft designation the kit portrays. For these reasons, I am going to be very careful removing any parts (something I thought would make sense all the time anyway), and it is also going to painted in a scheme I decide upon, using the kit decals, so will in effect be fictitious. So, as I am likely to start this tomorrow, for now, there is only the obligatory Box and sprue shot. More to follow tomorrow hopefully.
  8. Hello, everybody, I'm new here, I hope you like my work.I would like to thank viewing
  9. Hi Here is my Airfix 1/72 Hawk TMk2 bought in the recent Jadlam sale for £7. I built it from the box with the only additions being masking tape seat belts, a cut-down dress-maker's pin for the pitot and the very nice Xtradecal RAF Anniversary Update 2011/2012 I sprayed the model with Tamiya X-1, and following the decal application, I brushed on a coat of Klear (removing some of the minuscule stencil decals in the process!) I didn't use all the Airfix stencils, as I felt that they might ruin the look of the model. I'm sorry about the picture quality, but the winter overcast is not conducive to good photographs.
  10. Finished just before christmas, this is my 1/72 MPM Boston IV in Free French Service. According to the kit instructions this plane belonged to 342. Squadron, 137 Wing, 1944/1945. Modifications: - seatbelts added - aiming pin on nose added - brake lines added - air intakes on engines cut open - all exhausts drilled open - replacement main wheels from Aires - gun barrels from Quickboost The fit of the nose glazing is poor; i also had some troubles adding enough weight to prevent tail-sitting since there is no space in the front section. I glued finshing weights under the cockpit floor, in the engines and the front wheel well. The model was painted with colours from the Gunze/Mr.Hobby range. Ugly, but necessary: lead shots in forward wheel bay to prevent tail-sitting: pg French tricolore painted instead using the kit decals: Thanks for looking Roman
  11. The last kit to present this year from me - it's AZ Model's 1/72 Spitfire XVIe in their new "HQ Tool" boxings (red label). This means AZ Model are now producing their kits using metal molds which greatly improves sharpness of detail, fineness of panel lines and general assembly fit. In my humble opinion, the best Spitfire ever from AZ Model. Welcome to the Champions League! The model represents a plane from RAF 421 Sqn, Reinsehlen, May 1945 - decals come from a Sword kit (I've received a sample of this kit from AZ Model via IMPS Austria, including only 'foreign' options: Greek, Belgium, French, South African but wanted to build a RAF machine). Colours used are from the Gunze/Mr.Hobby range. Weathering with artists oils and pastel chalks. Thanks for looking, have a great start into 2013 and looking forward to all those model kits you will be builiding within the coming year! Cheers from Vienna Austria Roman
  12. Well, after a long weekend filled with activities I start with my 109. The plan is to do a simple work, no aftermarket and little scratch work, I just whant to use my K4 acrillic paints, they have had waiting the chance to do a complete model for to long. And this will be only the first work for this GB, as a Tamiya 1/48 E-3 is the main goal to finish. So I got this nice airfix kit, paid a little less then 5 US dolars in the local hobbyshop, and got to work: All interior painting job done, cockpit at a 75% work, tonight I want to finish the cockpit and close the fuselage!!

    1/72 RAAF F/A-18A Hornet

    Just finished this one over the weekend litterally for the ACTSMS Blitz Build. It is the old Hasegawa kit build more or less OOB. I only added the LEX fences. Decals are from a PD sheet. The kit decals were useless so I have to add a few more like slime lights, etc. I also found that the PD data stencils were all printed the light grey of the paint scheme so any placed on the lower fuselage disappeared into the paintwork. The scheme is for the 77SQN 50th Anniversary in 1992. Here are the finished pictures

    RAN A4G info required

    Apologies if this topic has already been covered. I want to build a 1/72nd scale RAN Douglas A4G operating from HMAS Melbourne in the early 1970s and have the Modeldecal sheet that includes this scheme. As the new Airfix A4B kit is readily available and reasonably priced what are the main differences between this mark and the A4G? i.e. Is it possible to build the A4G more or less from the box or is there extensive re-modelling/converting to be done and where? I have searched the net but have not been able to find a definitive list of differences. With thanks in advance. Tim.

    Bf110 trop

    This is the 1/72 Airfix kit built as an exercise in various weathering techniques for me. I made a few changes to the kit in attempt to add a little finesse to the out of box offering: Upper engine nacelles reduced and re-shaped, elevators dropped, ailerons deflected, fuselage antennas added, fuel lines added to drop tanks, braces added to bomb tails, boat release cable added to fuselage side, majority of panel lines filled and then later lightly drawn in with pencil with a few painted highlights. The rear machine gun has been lost to the carpet monster and the wire antennas are missing because I'm out of super glue! I struggled to get the canopy to fit well. The kit decals are wretched! The lower markings were painted on - but not terribly successfully! Painted mostly with Revell Aqua, a little Vallejo Model Color, Tamiya, Citadel, oil paint and pastels. The intention was never to make a wholly accurate model and I accept that it misses the mark in places but as an exercise in developing new ideas and pushing my boundaries slightly it has achieved all I wanted. Most of all, I enjoyed making it! All constructive criticism most welcome! Jon.
  16. Italeri Sunderland After a month or so on the bench, it's finally, well almost complete bar the astrodone and arial wire. The main challenge initially was the heavy panel lines, but plenty of primer and regualr rubbing down has tones them down quite a bit, I'm certainly happy with them, although it will be personal taste I guess. These things suffered a lot of weathering, so I wanted to capture some of this to bring out it's character. As you can see from the picture above of the aircraft I modelled, I've been rather reserved on the paint chipping along the hull and leading edges. Paints were Xtracrylics and Humbrol Aqua Colour matt varnish. Built mostly out of the box, I added some detail here and there such as the rear of the instruments on the panel as this is on show through the greenhouse. It's a good kit, most negative comments have been around the panel lines, but at least it doesn't need a rescribe Anyway, hope you like it... Thanks for looking, Neil
  17. Messerschmitt Bf110C/D ProfiPACK 1:72 Eduard Also see Paul's review of the Eduard Bf110e ProfiPACK HERE Not as famous as it's more agile stable mate, the Bf109, the Bf110 has a mixed history of success. First flying in 1936 as a proposed 'zerstorer' (meaning destroyer), tests with proposed DB600 engines demonstrated that it was faster than the 109B as well as its rivals, however development issues on these engines delayed their availability resulting in the A/B versions being powered by the less capable Jumo 210 engines which significantly restricted performance. Interestingly, work was underway before the outbreak of war to replace the 110 with the 210, however development issues with this aircraft meant that the 110 soldiered on and remained in service throughout the war. The C version was the first major production series and made use of the DB601 engines when they became available giving an impressive top speed in excess of 330mph. Early experience was soon to prove the capability of the 'zerstorer' when unchallenged. Success in Poland, Norway and France in the bomber escort and heavy fighter role was achieved due to the class of aircraft it was up against. The tide was turned however when it was put to the same use over Britain. Escorting the bombers during the Battle of Britain, it suffered badly at the guns of the Spitfires and Hurricanes to the extent that as well as escorting the bombers, it became escorted itself by 109's. Its weakness against modern fighters resulted in it being withdrawn from offensive operations over Europe and moved to the night fighter role intercepting British Bombers in which it was well suited. Its airframe enabled the carriage of radar equipment and it was a stable gun platform to perform this role to which it did until the end of the war. The kit If you've come across any of Eduard's Profipacks then you'll probably be expecting this kit to be a little gem. Guess what ? You'd be right ! The kit comes in a sturdy top opening box with great artwork and side profiles of the variants included along one edge. Inside the box, you'll find no less than 7 olive coloured sprues and a rather impressive clear sprue. The instructions are provided on an A5 glossy coloured booklet which is another indication of the quality standards that you have here. Being the Profipack version, you also get a photo-etch sheet and paint masks for the rather complicated canopy. If you have used these before, you'll wonder how you ever managed without them ! Eduard has really set the benchmark here. The quality of the moulding is excellent. Where necessary, the fine parts are extremely thin so this probably isn't the kit to choose for beginners, so it does differentiate itself somewhat when compared to the more 'chunky' new Airfix kit. There are over 160 parts included to put some perspective on things. Building the kit starts in the traditional way with the cockpit. This really is one of the most comprehensive 1/72 cockpits I've ever seen. The impressive side walls are formed into the fuselage halves. You have the choice of using the etch parts or building without and the sub assembly is built up on the floor part to include three seats, bulkheads, radio gear and ammunition. Etch parts are available to replace the pilots panel, radio gear face panels, rudder pedals, seatbelts, throttles and even the sights for the rear facing machine gun. The cockpit subassembly locates between the fuselage halves along with yet more detail including inserts to fill the wing root and side control panels for the pilot. At this stage, you need to ensure that you've decided on the version you want to build. There are two different fuselages, the D version differing from the C version by having a longer tail fairing that housed a life raft. The exterior detailing on the fuselage continues with the same vein of quality. Very fine recessed panel lines and incredibly restrained rivets are visible. Whilst you could argue that any panel lines on 1/72 scale aren't realistic, I'm very impressed with what Eduard have achieved here, certainly something other manufacturers can learn from. The wings are mated together next. Unfortunately, there's no option to have the flaps lowered, but the ailerons are separate parts so can be fitted slightly offset if you choose. Engine nacelles are provided in two halves with the lower intakes being added after joining the halves up. The interior detail in the wheel wells is pleasing, however it will probably be easier to paint prior to assembly, so make a note to check at this stage what you intend to do. The radiators have both front and rear grills that sit in the recesses on the underside of the wings with the radiator housing fitting over the top on each wing. The nose gun pack is another sub assembly which is then fitted to the front of the assembled fuselage. If you want this open and the guns on display, it's not possible from the kit but there is a resin replacement to do this available from Eduard as part of their aftermarket range. The main undercarriage is quite a complicated affair. Each main gear strut has 4 parts to it, with the option of an etch oleo scissor. These are designed to be able to slot in after nacelle assembly which is useful. The high standard of detail continues with the additional parts. The wheels, props, gear doors and exhausts are all finely reproduced. A variety of external fuel/armament loads are supplied in the kit. A huge 'Dackelbauch' belly tank that was carried by some D versions as well as two large wing tanks and two bombs housed under the belly. Some additional wing tanks and smaller bombs are included too, I suspect generically for other versions sharing the same sprues. The prominent loop aerial is supplied in two guises, injection moulded as standard or you can use the etch replacement. On to the clear parts. With so much detail crammed into the cockpit, you wouldn't want to hide it all behind a closed canopy, so Eduard have provided the options to have both front and rear canopies open. The parts are superbly clear and distortion free and remember you have a set of masks to make painting a much more pleasurable experience ! Incidentally, paint masks are also provided to assist painting the wheels. The decals One of the great things about eduard's Profipacks is the decals they provide. No less than 5 schemes are available in this pack provided on two sheets. The quality of print is....as you guessed, superb, with some very fine details including a huge collection of stencils. One of the schemes has green squadron codes, these aren't quite as vivid as the other coloured codes for some reason when inspected under a daylight lamp close up. Decals are also included for the instrument panels as another option if you don't like etch parts and these are quite superb with very intricate detail and coloured where necessary. The instruction sheet provides a separate instruction for the location of the stencil decals such is the number that are included. The following options are included: Bf110d, W.Nr. 3406, 9./ZG 26 based at Trapani, Sicily in 1941 - carrying large wing tanks and bombs under the fuselage Bf110d, W.Nr. 3148, 2.ZG 76, Based in Norway 1940 carrying the huge Dackelbauch belly tank BF110c, "n+AP, 9./ZG 76 Bf110c, 1./NJG3, North Africa 1941 Bf110c, W.Nr.3602, Stab II./ZG 76, flown by Maj. Erich Groth Conclusion This is a very comprehensive kit and quite stunning in every respect. Being the Profipack, you get everything you need to make a stunning representation straight out of the box. The quality of the moulding, the clarity of the instructions and the additional contents really make this kit stand out. As mentioned earlier, this probably isn't a kit for beginners due to the many delicate parts included, but if you're not put off by etch and small parts, it would be rude not to have one in your collection ! You can see that Eduard have put a lot of thought into the kit and stamped their quality standards all over it. My only dilemma now is deciding whether to build this or the 1/48 one I have in the stash too ! Review sample courtesy of

  19. I read this site's content almost every day and I've even dipped my toes here a few times but I think the time is now right to try to contribute something properly. I will try to see this wip thread through to conclusion but updates may be sporadic and may even dry up altogether - please forgive me if I fall by the wayside..... I have here the Airfix 1/72 Bf110E trop and I intend to use to learn more about about modelling and to develop my very modest ablities. Ultimate accuracy is not my goal but I hope if I finish the build it will be a reasonable model. First impressions of the kit is that it looks fair enough but is not without issues. the first of these are the somewhat 'wholesome' panel lines. These have now mostly been filled. The second issue (which I only learned about from reading posts in this forum!) are the overly large engine nacelles on the upper wings. Other than those 2 things, the kit appears to but just fine for my purposes. I have read negative comments about the Airfix decals but I've played with some of the spare ones and I think I can work with them. The one-piede lower wing in my kit was very badly distorted but Airfix swiftly sent me a good replacement part on request. Hats of to them for great customer service. These first 2 photographs show one original upper wing and the other one which I have modified by filling the panel lines with epoxy putty and by re-shaping the nacelle. I think the rear end of it should be slimmer and more pointy but, quite frankly, it'll do for me. These next 2 photos show what I've done to the fuselage so far. Panel lines being filled (this time mostly with green tube putty) and the elevators removed so i can have them dropped. At this point I have a query that hopefully someone here can answer: How/where are the elevators hinged on the real aircraft? Also, what is the function of those tabs seen on moving surfaces that project into the fixed part of the structure? I've modelled these ones as hollow and I'm guessing that they have some kind of role to play in the actuation of the elevators but I honestly have no idea what would be correct. I hope someone can fill in these gaps in my knowledge! Right, that's it for now. I shall endeavour to press on with this build and add more to this thread. Jon.

    Old dog from Airfix

    While looking for something (have forgotten what) in my way too large stash a few days ago, I "rediscovered" not only one, but two Airfix Beagle Basset kits. After having had a look at them, I thought it could be an easy "no nonsense" build, just to get a modell finished for once. Typical simple Airfix kit from the late 60's with lots of rivets all over and very little detailing. Although the interior is fairly decent with a rear bulkhead, floor, seats, good instrument panel with two rather nice control yokes. On the other hand the undercarriage is very simplified and the nose wheel well is non-existing. Decals had naturally yellowed after all these years, but most of the standard markings can be substituted with better ones from my Modeldecal stash. And with some "sun treatment" specific items like the blue cheat lines and a few other small items will probably be useable too. So I decided to have a go at one of them. Apart from a few improvements in the cabin and a nose weight not much more is needed there despite the many large and surprisingly clear windows. Just sanding down all those tea cup-sized rivets on the outside, scribe a few panel lines and scratchbuild a cooling flap under each engine. That should do it. However there are no colour information for the interior in the instructions. But I guess standard colours for that kind of aircraft in those days would probably be a pale blue or gray with slightly darker seats. I have been unable to find any pics of the interior on the net, so if anyone can shed some information on this it would be appreciated. Another colour question is regarding the exterior. I will use the KISS method and not deviate from the kit option - white fin and fuselage top, blue cheat line along the fuselage sides and the rest of the airframe painted silver. I think silver paint is correct, but in all the photos I have found light aircraft grey seems to be used instead. But I have a faint memory of a change over from silver to LAG some time around 1970. Can anyone confirm this?
  21. Finished this last week and thought I'd share the results, hope you don't mind. The kit is the recent Airfix release OOB finished with Humbrol gull grey and white with a wash of Flory/promodeler weathering wash(great stuff) to highlight the engraved detail I used the kit decals which for the most part worked well, the only issue were that the intake warning markings would not fit the intakes(so just used the 'Danger' center bit and used a matching red for the intake lip). Also the decals on the tops of the wings did not want to snuggle down over the vortex generators and required a little persuasion and touching up when dried. I have weathered the kit with some oil wash and streaking but the effect has been lost due to the bleaching effect of the camera flash. I still have to hang a couple of dumb bombs from the pylons, TER's with a pair of 250 pounders on each I think should look ok. Thanks for looking
  22. Hi all, this is the Academy and Heller kits built for the recent Valiant Wings book, where you may find the complete build reports and of course much more... Cheers Libor
  23. Czech Master Resin (CMR - http://www.cmrmodels.co.uk/ ) has announced a 1/72nd Hunting Percival Provost T.1/51/52 kit. Source: http://www.cmrmodels.co.uk/cmr72-235/hunting-percival-provost-t1'51'52.html Anyway I'd like to see a kit of the same aircraft type but in 1/48th... V.P.
  24. Hello All, An Airfix Kittyhawk, with a bit of cockpit detailing, new plastic sheet rear windows, plunge moulded undercarriage doors and some other tweaks, finished using the kit scheme and decals (which fought me all the way): I went for Hu 29 and 93, with a 4:1 Hu 34 white:Hu 25 blue mix underneath - next time I will use more blue or less white. It was a fun, low-stress build and I like the scheme and want to do more (but possibly not enough to spoil a Spitfire with a Vokes filter!). Thanks for looking, Adrian
