  1. The newest Mk.I kit with the fuel tank cover and landing gear issues. I had to add the padded headrest as per the photo, made from a piece of round sprue tree. Other than that, a great kit. This is WZ⦿H of 19 Squadron, Duxford, 4th May 1939. Innards were painted with Tamiya XF-71 Cockpit Green. Masking tape harnesses. The bottom was painted with Tamiya XF-69 Nato Black and Vallejo Surface Primer – White. Note the long area of white that needed to be masked off and when painting was done and the tape removed, no paint lift. Upper colours were done with Tamiya XF-81 Dark Green 2 (RAF) and Mr. Ho
  2. Hello everyone! I'm throwing an instant Italian project into the workshop, and how could I not throw in another Italian. The hero of this workshop will be Reggiane Re. 2002 "Ariete" in 1:48 from Italeri, there will be no additions to it. Instant project so a word of explanation, the model will be at my friend's place on the shelf. Not everyone has the ability or time. Below is a small in-box of the kit:
  3. A new thread! A new cardboard jig! Fresh solid, weighty resin floats already with cheeky white socks & sturdy stance white metal struts! Test fit with horizontal radiators doing an impression of a wing... Test fit with shapely curved cowled fuselage! And I'm underway with my next Schneider Trophy racer!!
  4. This was a shocker... I was aware this Revell kit had its issues, but it fought me all the way... despite that quite happy with the final look (from a distance).. despite my ineptitude to get the fuel tank fins on the right way round (too late now to do anything about that).. She's been enhanced with a resin cockpit and a few other bits and bobs off the pylons.
  5. This'll be my first build report so be gentle with me Firstly a bit of background:I got back into modelling like many others I suspect, last year during lockdown here in Germany. Luckily we didn't have it as bad as some and a few shops were still open. I built a couple of WW2 trucks converted to civvy use based on what I see every day on the roads in Myanmar every winter. I also did the very good Revell 1:24 Land Rover which was loosely based on our old Landy. Anyway I got back into aircraft with the Trumpeter 1:48 Wyvern, mainly due to the fact it was based on o
  6. More than 20 years after finishing my last model I felt I wanted to try out some modelling again! Last time I was "active" was in 1999-2000 or so, when I moved out from my parents house. Out of my old builds nothing is left except for some photos, but I recall some fun builds like the revell F101-B Voodoo in 1:72 and the Airfix S A Bulldog in the same scale, and of course also the Airfix Bf109 in 1:24. So, after many years I want to get off where I left and as a start I will try out with something rather easy where I can focus on trying out some new techniques. This turned out to
  7. Howdy, Something a little different from me. I'm not a huge fan of modern aircraft, but I'm a big fan of Australian Aboriginal art. This aircraft was painted to commemorate WO Leonard Victor Waters, a member of the Worimi people, and Australia's first indigenous aviator. WO Waters flew 95 combat missions with the RAAF in the southwest Pacific. On account of intense discrimination against Aboriginal peoples in post-war Australia, WO Waters was unable to find support for his efforts to launch an airline, and was not even allowed to practice as an automotive mechanic (even
  8. Hi all! Bear with me, this is my first WIP post. Sword’s 1:48 T4 lightning. All the usual comments about “short-run” kits apply - no locating pins, some flash, occasional fit issues, etc., but overall, I’m impressed. I bought a few goodies to go with it, the best being Danny Coreman’s book, but there were a few diorama bits I couldn’t resist, like tow bar, FOD cover (covers a multitude of sins!), tow-tractor... I took inspiration from #propforward’s build, so all the same comments apply as to fit, filling and finish! Natural metal finish on an earlier
  9. Hi everyone, now available in my web shop and from a few retailers is my latest set, a slatted wing conversion for the Zoukei Mura F-4E (early) hard wing kit. Yes, I know that ZM will eventually release their own, but this is for those who really want to build their slatted F-4E now and maybe also offers a little bit more than the out-of-the-box option will do later... In the package are: slatted outer wings (the main wing parts are cast in extra strong resin to prevent warping), drop-in slat inserts for the inner wings, ARN-101 system antenna, TISEO, upgraded WSO cockpit conso
  10. Hi everyone! Hope you all are doing well and safe! This past weekend I discovered some photos in an old hard drive of some model kits I build like 10 or more years ago. They are not up to my today standards, but I still have them in my display gabinet, and some of them are still my favorites. This is the case with this Hobbycraft A-4C. If I remember right, this was build out of the box, including decals. I just added a True Details ejection seat, a Squadron vacuform canopy and windscreen to replace the horrible kit one and I scratchbuild FOD and engine cover
  11. Hi all, here is my Spitfire TR9 G-CTIX (PT462) which I converted from the 1:48 ICM Mark IX kit. Critiques are obviously welcome, but don't be too harsh . This kit was just a distraction from all my school work the past few weeks so it's not perfect! Overall the kit went together well, brilliant abundance of parts from ICM. For £13 you get not only a full 1:48 Spitfire (that you can make several versions of!) with an engine, but also the ground crew with benches, ladders etc. A brilliant base kit for conversions. Here is a link to the build progress post
  12. F9F-5P Panther, US Marines, September 1956 - MCAS El Toro, CA Kit: Revell F9F-5P Panther (Recon) (#04582) Scale: 1/48 Paints: Vallejo Model Air, Vallejo Metal Colour Weathering: Flory Models Wash, Mig weathering Products Revell Recon Panther based on the 90's Monogram kit. No big issues with the kit, even if it feels/looks a tad dated. Decals were bit problematic at first but finally they conformed to the surface.
  13. This is my latest creation, as it typical for me an OOB build. Paints are a combination of Model Master, Gunze and Tamiya. This is Revell's 1/48 kit number 3925 of the Panavia Tornado F.3 ADV, No. 111 Squadron, Royal Air Force, Leuchars, Scotand July 2002. I have to thank some fellow Britmodellers for the heads up regarding the fit. The fit is great provided you pay attention to the fuselage and snug it up as the assembly goes along. Also, given it is swing wing you need to plan ahead and in my case the wings were painted before they were attached as it would be near impossible to do this
  14. This is my latest contribution to Airfix Model World. Eduard 's superb special edition P47 'Jugs Over Germany'. Paints are MRP....
  15. Kit: Monogram Paint: All enamels Decals: Old Models Decals 0799, Aeromaster generic RAF roundels Extras: Eduard pre-painted seat belts. NA Harvard III 2 FTS, Woodbourne, New Zealand Late 1943. This is an original 1979 issue of the Monogram SNJ kit that I've had sitting in my stash since there were Brachiosaur's roaming around . Built in just over three weeks without instructions - lost those so many years ago - I've finished my Harvard as the same a
  16. This is probably @Martians fault. The vacform tutorial build got me thinking about challenging myself to do something other than an injection moulded kit. I stick to 1:48 and almost always the end-of-the-cold-war through to modern era aircraft that I've seen at shows since my childhood. So there really isn't tons of choice in vacform, as soon as I saw the Lightning I knew it was the right one for me. I don't normal go for the un-boxing type shots, but a lot of you might be as new as me to this form of modelling. the box Unfortunately no longer
  17. After the Kittyhawk Jaguar, I wanted to do something from the rotary side of the house. I had a few options in the stash, but @perdu made a lovely job of an Apache, so I thought I'd give that a shot. I have the Revell kit, having previously read on BM that it has all the defensive suite parts to make a good job of the British version. Despite that, there's relatively little aftermarket available so I'm using the PE & make for the Hasegawa kit, Armoury wheels, Rotor Craft crv-7 rocket pods and some Eduard Hellfires. First job, as always is the cockpit. There are d
  18. Kit - Hobbyboss Paint - AK & SMS lacquers Decals - kit Extras - Aires resin ejection seat, drop tanks & missiles from spares AMD Mirage IIICJ 119 Squadron IDF/AF Tel Nof Airbase Summer 1969 One of my all-time favourite aircraft from the the original Airfix 'Dogfight Double' box-art to my tiny die-cast toy when I was very young and on to 'The Aeronauts' TV series then finally seeing them 'in person' throughout the 1980's & 90's... I absolu
  19. Tiangong-1 and Shenzhou-8 Spacecraft Great Wall Hobby (GWH) 1:48 History During the early part of the 1970's China initiated a space programme, titled "Shunguang-1", with the intention of developing and using their own craft and astronauts for space exploration. The first astronauts were selected in April 1971 but nothing came of it and the project was cancelled. The programme was restarted in 1985 with the intention of building their own space shuttle however, at that time, China did not have sufficient technological knowledge or experience for such an elaborate undertaking and t
  20. I did most of my growing up in Chicago in the 1980s. My first few years were in Poland and later West Germany, but I didn't really build models at that very young age. We had a great hobby shop in my part of town, and I would go there with my uncle and we'd both get Tamiya and Italeri (italierie back then) tanks. They were about $5-10 back then. I remember when my uncle got a Tamiya churchill that was over $20 and it seemed like a fortune. Time permitting, I'll revisit one of these early tanks, bit first some unfinished business... Around 1990 I became interested in aircraft models
  21. Hello everybody! Another model that landed in my workshop is Reggiane Re. 2001 Falco II from Sword in 1:48 scale (SW48012). I know I promised an MC. 202 but there has been a slight adjustment in plans. Falco will be straight out of the box without any fireworks. And the rest will come out during construction. The whole thing looks like this: The little in-box of the kit: And a few details
  22. Hi all I present to you my Airfix 1:48 Javelin FAW.9/9R I finished it back in October but only just got round to posting here It’s in the markings of no 64 Squadron Royal Air Force based at Tengah in Singapore during the 1960’s Aftermarket sets include Eduard cockpit interior and Master replacement pitot tubes Tamiya and Mr Hobby paints used throughout the build A throughly enjoyable build Thanks for looking and happy modelling
  23. How could I not join an Interceptor GB with anything other than an Angel Interceptor!!! This is an old resin kit from UNCL, also known as the legendary 'Uncle' Bill Oram. I'd been looking for this kit for years as its been out of production for quite a while and then this one came up on Facebook last month for a reasonable price so snapped it up. Its UNCL's old cream resin, with a vac-formed canopy and some small white metal parts for the pilots arms and the wing skids. It came without decals but I have spares for the Spectrum round
  24. Hi all. After a series of frustrating days at work, I decided to do some retail therapy and purchased Tamiya's excellent P-38F. I also ordered some decals to build Capt. James Hagenback's plane he flew in late 1943 while commanding the 94th FS in Sardinia. This is probably as colorful as the P-38F gets, with the yellow wings and all. I'm not going to waste anybody's time (including my own with sprue shots and will just launch right into the build, shortly. But needles to say, the kit looks excellent!
  25. Hello! This is my first gallery in this forum. To the MC.205 Veltro 1:48 Italeria I added a few additives in the form of resins and plates. I also used paints dedicated to Italian aviation from bilmodels company, so far these are the best paints I have had a chance to work with. As always with valorization, not everything fits perfectly, there were a few places where I had to think a little bit how to put it together. In summary, the construction went smoothly. Below are pictures of the finished model. Maybe somebody will like my sweats.
