  1. Here are a pair of desert scheme Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-17PF "Fresco Ds" I built back in 2014. Both are from the Attack 1:144 kit moulds, the Syrian one from the original boxing whereas the Egyptian one was from the Mark I re-boxing. The Mark I kit came with a resin cockpit so I used it as a guide to scratchbuild one for the Attack kit using a Matador Models white metal MiG-21PF seat. Both kits had the radio mast and wing probes added from stretched sprue. The missing sway braces for the drop tanks were also added from thin plastic sheet. They were fully painted and varnished by brush.
  2. Here is my Jach 1:144 Messerschmitt P.1101N which I built back in 2010. Jach offers a two-kit box covering two possible variants (A and N) of this unbuilt German WWII project. The "N" is a proposed nightfighter variant. I scratchbuilt a cockpit since there was none. The aerials came as etched metal parts. The kit was fully painted with brush except for the final matt varnish which was airbrushed. Thank you for looking Miguel
  3. Good evening everyone! I hope you're all keeping well? After almost 5 weeks of work (and more money than I should probably admit to) I've finally completed my rendition of an American Airlines Boeing 777-300ER in 1:144 scale: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I could write a lot about this build (and I have on the Work in Progress thread), but I shall try and keep it relatively short and sweet. Just over a year ago I took my first flight, in an attempt to get over my fear of both flyin
  4. Here is a Minicraft 1:144 Heinkel He 111H-6 I built back in 2015. It represents 1H+MM, of KG26, Luftwaffe, based in Italy. It was built mostly OOB but using the Matador Models white metal cockpit part. The guns were are replaced by new ones from scrap plastic and stretched sprue. The missing underfuselage aerial, wing pitot and engine carburettor intakes were also made from stretched sprue. I also tried to improve the shapes of the propeller blades. General fit of parts was poor, especially around the underside gondola and wing roots. The kit was fully painted and varni
  5. Here is my other Eduard 1:144 Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21Bis "Fishbed N" which I built back in 2012. It represents "Blue 223", of the People's Air Force of Mozambique, at Beira AB, Mozambique, in 1988. The kit was built OOB and painted with brush except for the final light coat of matt varnish which was airbrushed. The decals came from a Berna Decals sheet. The rocket pods came from an Attack 1:144 MiG-21 kit. I had arranged the pylons so that they would be carried on the inner ones but the undercarriage fouled the fit of the pods so I put them on the outer ones. It seem
  6. Here is the second of two Armory 1:144 Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4s that I have completed this past week. It represents E-4/N Black Chevron and Bars, W.Nr 5819, flown by Oberstleutnant Adolf Galland, Geschwaderkommodore of JG 26 'Schlageter', Luftwaffe, at Audembert, France, in December 1940. For notes on the build check the other one (Wick's E-4). I added the telescopic sight from stretched sprue. The kit was built mostly OOB and fully painted and varnished by brush. Decals came from an MYK decal sheet. Thank you for looking and, as always, all comments are welco
  7. Here is one of two Armory 1:144 Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4s that I have completed this past week. It represents Black Double Chevron, W.Nr 5344, flown by Hauptmann Helmut Wick, Gruppenkommandeur of I./JG 2 'Richtofen', Luftwaffe, at Brest, France, in October 1940. The Armory kit has enough optional parts to make any of the Emil subvariants with etched parts that give good scale thickness (or thinness) to some parts and a decal sheet covering 14 options (my kits came from Set #2 "Battle of Britain Aces"). Unfortunately, major parts suffer from excessive flash and overall fit of parts
  8. Here is my Anigrand Craftswork 1:144 resin Kawasaki Ki-108 "Randy" I built back in 2011. It represents one of the prototypes at the Rikugun Koku Shinsa Bu (Army Air Testing Centre), Gifu Factory area, 1944. It's one of the bonus kits of the Kawasaki Ki-91 bomber set. Only four prototypes of this aircraft were built and flown, the second pair being of the improved Kai variant with greater span and length. According to what little references I could find, this kit seems to be a little in between both variants but closer to the first pair. This was a particularly trou
  9. Here is my Revell 1:144 Lockheed TF-104G Starfighter which I built back in 2004. It represents 28+31 of JaboG34, Luftwaffe, based at Memmingen, German Federal Republic, in the 1970s. It was built OOB, painted with brush and only the flat varnish was airbrushed. This was a delightful kit which has been fortunately re-issued by Mark I with new decals and schemes (so I have several in my stash ). Thanks for looking Miguel
  10. Here is my third "what-if" fun build with an Fw 190D kit, in this case an F-toys 1:144 kit, back in 2013. It represents a hypothetical Fw 190D-9/R11 nightfighter Red 3 of NJG11, Luftwaffe, in Germany, late 1945, where a pod with a more modern dish array radar was added to one wing similar to those carried by Hellcats and Corsairs. Since the previous radar-equipped Fw 190 had the R11 Rüstsatz, I named it thus. I later found that there was an R11 all-weather modification for the Fw 190D-9 but not like this! This was a pre-painted, semi-assembled kit so I removed the paint and made so
  11. This is the F-8E Crusader from the F-Toys US Navy Collection Volume 2. These are pre-painted Gashopon trading kits from Japan - apparently you can buy these in vending machines. Oh how I long to live in a country where I could pick up a kit in a vending machine! I stripped and repainted it completely. Well worth picking up if you want a few evenings worth of fun. More familiar in this scale is the Platz F-8, though that is an earlier mark. For a gashopon, this is among the nicest I have built in terms of fit and details. I'd quite forgotten how good
  12. Here is my Attack 1:144 Shenyang J-5 radar test-bed which I built back in 2014. It represents 2424, of the PLAAF, China, in late 1950s/early 1960s. This aircraft is now an exhibit iat the Changping Air Museum, Beijing. I couldn't find much about this prototype. It seems to have been a test-bed for the radar-equipped J-5A. A source claimed only one was modified this way but I found photos of a second one in another museum. Interestingly, the Russians had made the same configuration tests before settling in the result seen on the MiG-17PF variant. These Chinese tests were complete
  13. Here are a pair of Platz 1:144 Kawanishi N1K2-J Shiden-Kai (Late) "George" which I built back in 2007. Both kits were built OOB and fully painted and varnished with brush. Both are from the 343 Kokutai (Wing), the only one to use the type, but from different Hikotai (squadrons). The first one represents C-343-45, 343 Kokutai, 701 Hikotai, Imperial Japanese Naval Air Force, Matsuyama airfield, Japan, in April 1945. The second one represents B-343-30,
  14. Here is the third of a trio of Sweet 1:144 "BoB Aces" Hawker Hurricane Mk.Is built back in 2009. It represents P2798/LK-A, flown by Flt Lt Ian R. Gleed, "A" Flight Commander, No. 87 Sqn, RAF, Exeter, September 1940. The kit was fully painted with brush except for the final matt varnish which was airbrushed. Thanks for looking Miguel
  15. Hello everyone! Here is one of my two latest kits finished during this week, both being Mark I Model's 1:144 Dornier Do 17Z-2. This one represents 5K+EA, Stab./KG3, Luftwaffe, based at Le Culot airfield, Belgium, during the Battle of Britain, summer 1940. This wasn't an easy build due to poor fit of parts, especially the transparencies. Both together have been 2 months in the making! I made the following modifications/additions: - The gun barrels were too thick so I cut them off and made thinner ones from stretched sprue. - The exhausts were way too long. Initiall
  16. Hello everyone! Here is the second of my two latest kits finished last week, also a Mark I Model's 1:144 Dornier Do 17Z-2. This one represents F1+AL, Stab II./KG76, Luftwaffe, France, 1940. All the comments on the other build apply here except that this kit has a loop aerial above the cockpit instead of the blister the other kit had. I had to thin the part as much as I could. As with the other one, the kit was fully painted and varnished with brush. Thanks for looking Miguel
  17. Launch Tower & Space Shuttle with Booster Rockets Revell 1:144 Following the demise of the Saturn/Apollo programme, which ended with the Apollo/Soyuz Test Program (ASTP) in 1975, NASA moved on to a new era in space flight; that of the Shuttle Programme. The intention was to design, build and launch a manned vehicle that could carry a crew and cargo payload into low earth orbit, deliver its cargo, and then return to earth, land like an aircraft, and be reusable for future launches. The requirements for the Shuttle were to be that, unlike the Saturn/Apollo system which progres
  18. Here are another couple of Sweet 1:144 Mitsubishi A6M2b Type 21 Zeroes which I built back in 2011 with unusual markings. As with the previous pair posted here, both were built OOB and painted by brush with only the matt varnish being airbrushed. First, ?-143, of 261st Kokutai (Fighter Group), Imperial Japanese Navy, 1943. Apart from the white bands, the other unusual detail is the underside painted dark green all over. Second, 53-102, of 253rd Kokutai (Fighter Gro
  19. Here are the other two of four Jach 1:144 Lippisch P.20s I built in 2018. As mentioned with the previous two, apart from scratchbuilding a cockpit and wing probe, I built them OOB. This was a proposed jet-engined development of the Me 163 Komet. Jach suggests the N1 version has an earlier radar type with nose antlers and the N2 has a dish-type radar. The aerials were etched metal parts. Both versions have hardpoints and I decided to use different loads, with a pair of drop tanks for the N1 and an assymetric load of a tank and an X-4 missile for the N2. They were fully paint
  20. Here is another (the last) of my Sweet 1:144 Messerschmitt Bf 109Fs built back in 2008. It represents Messerschmitt Bf 109F-4 "Yellow 7", of 9/JG3, Luftwaffe, flown by Lt Victor Bauer, in the USSR, in June 1942. I always liked these unique scheme used by JG3. The kit was fully painted and varnished with brush. Thanks for looking and all comments are welcome Miguel
  21. Here is another Sweet 1:144 early Hurricane Mk.I I built back in 2009. It represents H-22 of 2nd Escadrille (Les Chardons), 1st Group, 2nd Regiment, Royal Belgian Air Force, at Schaffen, in May 1940. The kit was built OOB and fully painted and varnished with brush. Thanks for looking Miguel
  22. Hello all, I am trying to find detailed plans or schematic, with dimensions, of these iconic hovercraft. I have checked Wikipedia and the Hovercraft Museums sites and have worked out the full lengths and widths, but could do with details on the cabin, fins, propeller, skirt etc., etc. I would be grateful for any help with these. cheers, Mike
  23. Here are two of four Jach 1:144 Lippisch P.20s I built in 2018. These were simple kits which, apart from scratchbuilding a cockpit and wing probe, I built OOB. This was a proposed jet-engined development of the Me 163 Komet. Jach suggests the B version has hardpoints for drop tanks or X-4 missiles whereas the A is clean so I did it this way. Both were fully painted and varnished by brush. Lippisch P.20A. Yellow 3, JG53, Luftwaffe, 1946 (fictitious).
  24. Here are a couple of Sweet 1:144 Mitsubishi A6M2b Type 21 Zeroes which I built back in 2011 in unusual schemes. Both were built OOB and painted by brush with only the matt varnish being airbrushed. The first one is 2-1-128 of Junyou Kokutai (Fighter Group), Imperial Japanese Navy, in 1943. The second one is 81-181 of 381st Kokutai, 311st Hikotai, Imperial Japanese Navy, in 1944.
  25. Here is a Focke-Wulf Triebflugel I built back in 2012. It is a Takara 1:144 gashapon pre-painted partially-assembled kit which I took apart, had the paint and markings sanded down and re-painted and re-assembled. The kit was a nightfighter variant hence the thimble nose for the radar. The kit was fully painted and varnished with brush and decals came from various sources. It represents "Black 3", of an ISS (industry point defence) unit, Luftwaffe, Germany (fictitious of course). All comments welcome and thanks for looking Miguel
