  1. Hello guys and girls.I hope you are doing well.Here is my latest finished model.The Sword EE Lightning T.5.A really bad kit that requires a lot of work to turn it into something worth of having a place in you display case.I built it OOB.The paints used are gunze. enjoy the photos.
  2. Welcome! I'm starting my workshop with another model KSR-5 "Raduga" (AS-6 "Kingfish") in 1:72 scale from AMODEL, it won't be crazy. Model started years ago, a little kicked, but it happens when you learn. But that was only thanks to my wife, who told me to get my models in order and tidy up the studio. Without any disguise I took the first model whose box was already a little bit shabby. After opening the box I found such a state.
  3. First up for me will be the Royal Navy's Mediterranean interceptor, the Fulmar. Fulamrs shot down more enemy aircraft than any others in WW2, despite there being later much more capable fighters in the form of Martlets, Seafes, Sea Hurricanes, Hellcats and Corsairs. This Airfix kit is a boxing if the Smer kit which although elderly now is a nice kit and makes a good representation. I built one a few years ago and it's buried somewhere here on BM.
  4. Here is my first kit of the year, finally! It is Italeri's 1:72 Lockheed F-104A-20-LO Starfighter. It represents 4221 (s/n 56-0799 - ex-USAF), of the 3rd Tactical Fighter Wing/8th Tactical Fighter Squadron, Republic of China AF, Ching Chuan Kang Air Base, Taiwan, 1961. This was the old Esci kit re-released by Italeri. It was a pretty basic kit which I decided to build very much OOB. All of the parts needed cleaning up due to some flash, ejection pins and sink marks. Fit wasn't bad but nearly all joins needed work and in some places there were steps to deal with. I on
  5. My next build is Trumpeter's 1:72 British Wyvern S.4. I'm quite excited about this build as it will be my first kit made by Trumpeter, and it looks fantastic. The box art is stunning, and entice you right in. The instruction booklet is large with clear and beautiful pictures, as is the colour scheme/ decal sheet. There are 5 grey sprues with a nice amount of detail and no flash. There is a small clear sprue, and large decal sheet which contains a film piece for the instrument panel. I plan to build it straight from the box, using Vallejo acrylics, with the
  6. I have 3 of these kits, plus an Academy (ex-Hobbycraft) 'J' kit. The Revell kit was first issued in 1991 (at least that's the year on the mold stamp), and I would have bought it not long afterwards: While obviously a very nice kit for its time (and superior to the Hobbycraft tooling IMHO*), the German-printed decals were not the best, so I left it in the stash. *Although Hobbycraft issued a much wider range of variants. Fast forward to 2013, and the kit was reissued with Cartograf decals, and I eagerly bought two of this release: I am
  7. Alongside the single-seat 1983 Italeri A-4M, I will be building the 1998 two-seat OA-4M variant, which shared as much of the A-4M tooling as as was possible. Markings are included for two USMC H&Ms (Headquarters and Maintenance) aircraft.
  8. A late entry for this GB, as I decided not to build the Hasegawa F-106, for reasons I explained in the chat thread. After some contemplation, I chose the "new" Airfix Defiant: If there is one thing that has bugged me (to put it mildly) with quite a few Airfix kits from the past 10-15 years, it's the thickness of the trailing edges of the main wings and control surfaces. Look at the ailerons on this kit. Being molded in full on the lower wing, you'd think they would be nice and sharp, but not a bit of it: They must be at least 1mm thick, equating
  9. Another placeholder. This kit was first released in 1983, but it was a few years before I bought it, in what seems to be the original box style: I will probably build the more colourful of the two subjects (VMA-331), as opposed to the toned-down aircraft from VMA-214 "Black Sheep" on the front cover. The VMA-331 aircraft has the early fin tip. There is nothing supplied for the outer wing pylons, so I will rustle something up from the spares box:
  10. My fourth and final placeholder (for now!) is for a kit I recently completed as an Argentine Air Force A-4P, for which decals were erroneously included in early releases of the "starter" kit version, of which I bought four of on the cheap. This time around, I will be building the USN version. I will probably tinker with the weapons load. Maybe Bullpup missiles, maybe MERs w/Mk 81 "slicks", who knows?
  11. Before anybody says, 'There's no way the Nimrod was an interceptor ' this is a much earlier airframe. The Nimrod was the FAA's last biplane fighter, being replaced just before WW2 by the Skua. The Nimrod was effectively a navalised Hawker Fury with catapult capability and an arrestor hook. It was the Fleet fighter throughout the 1930s serving in all FAA carriers. A number were also sold to Denmark without naval equipment and they were still in service when Denmark was invaded, but none of them saw combat. A valuable and effective fighter that took over Fleet defence from the Flycatcher.
  12. Hi all - first post here, and thought I'd do something a bit different: This was great fun to do...conventional model painting rather went out the window, and I used mainly homemade decals drawn with dip pen and acrylic ink. This was inspired by a real life aircraft in Katowice, of which there are plenty of photos on the usual sites, eg: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/5788170 Seeing as I bought the KP 3-pack, I think I'll do a clean one next!
  13. I have a bundle of Seafires in the stash and I thought a good addition to this GB would be a pair of the FAA's first high speed interceptors, a pair of Seafire MkIb's. Although different boxings these are the same kit. And although they say Admiral, the bags containing the kit inside the box says AZ Models. I've already built one earlier this year in the Spitfire GB, finished as this unusual blue version. This pair will be more conventional. Each boxing gives two different options but in one of the boxings the two options are for 2nd line squadrons. I'll
  14. Another one for my Falklands War collection - 1/72 Westland Wessex HU.5, XS486, 848. Naval Air Squadron, Flight A, RFA Regent,Operation Corporate, May-June 1982 r. Italeri kit + PE parts from Eduard. Wessex XS486 (produced 1964, serial WA160) served in the Falklands as a machine to transport equipment and people between ships and units on the islands. After the end of the war in June 1982, it took part in Operation Keyhole (aboard HMS Endurance), the purpose of which was to retake of the South Sandwich and South Georgia islands. Most of the XS486's fuselage has survived to this day
  15. I first built this kit back in the mists of time, as my own scan of the boxart proves: The kit is currently being sold by both Mistercraft and Heller. The Mistercraft boxing is cheaper, and has 14 (!!!!) subject options. For once with Mistercraft, the contents of the decal sheet and the instructions line up, more or less: I will be building this is a Yugoslavian aircraft, with a distinctive 3-tone upper camouflage schemes. The exact colours are uncertain. The instructions for the Eduard 1:32 and 1:48 kits are a good reference. Eduard has covered the Yugoslav
  16. This is a placeholder, as I might not be able to start this for some time. The original catalogue number was 277. This could easily qualify as a "kit you never built as a kid", and so on. I am building the Heller-Humbrol boxing, which includes the Norwegian markings that were dropped from later Heller releases: There's a school of thought that says this is really a Canadair-specific version, and as such the USAF subject (John Glenn) is not kosher. At any rate, I plan on building the JG 71 aircraft.
  17. SWORD 1:72 F-2H-2P Photo Banshee One of my more recent purchases. I'm currently working on Hobby Boss's F9F Panther and thought it could use a friend. Colour schemes. This will be a Navy bird, most likely. Decals. By Eduard, as it seems. It's a short run kit, for sure. Not saying that is a bad thing - I mean the details are pretty nice for the most part, but you can also see that there will most likely be a lot of sanding & fitting included.
  18. Such is my collection if kits "in progress", I went back and forth (and every other direction) deciding what to finish. First up, the Airfix Skyhawk. While this kit is built from the starter pack, early releases of that included the "full" decal sheet, with markings for the Argentine Air Force, as well as the USN: So here was the kit as I left it a couple of years ago. Why did I leave it be? Who knows? Only the arrestor hook needs to be attached, and that because I need to finish painting it first. So, after a rush of painting, and some decals:
  19. This kit is part of a batch brought home from the Netherlands by one of my brothers, way back in 1988 (!!!!!!) It has been on and off the workbench like a dog at a fair. I probably started it somewhere between 10 and 15 years ago, more likely the latter than the former. Why the delay? First up, the cockpit colours confounded me, but eventually I hit on Hu 226 interior green, as recommended by Airfix for its Zero and Kate. That doesn't mean it's right, but it will do. Then I ran into problems mating the assembled wing to the fuselage, in that the wing s
  20. Kit - Airfix 1:72. Paint - Humbrol, WEM & Xtracolour enamels. Decals - Kit. Extras - LAU-3 pods from Hasegawa Weapons Set. Hawker Siddeley AV-8A Harrier VMA-513 'Flying Nightmares' MCAS Kaneohe Bay 1976 Bought this on impulse from a mate here in NZ just a couple of weeks before Christmas and decided to get it built more-or-less immediately. Hit the bench at the same time as the Skyraider and built side-by-side. Definitely does not 'fall together' i
  21. Good evening, colleagues! Allow me to present to your court the next model from the Star. Recently, I have seen several models of this helicopter on the site, I don't see any point in talking about a prototype. The model both liked and disliked. I did not like the huge rivet, the "glass" material, muddy and not amenable to polishing. The decals are normal, for the joy of sticking an additional tech from the KA-52. I did not delve into the match much, I added an imitation of hoses, wiring, etc. to the box. I used aluminum tape. After processing the photos, I was a little upset – I did not rem
  22. This is another placeholder. I figure I need to build at least one really old kit of a French aircraft, and this will do for starters. This is one of the Smer reboxes that were issued c. 2000, to my great delight, as the original Heller kit eluded me. The original catalogue number was L093 (?), the "black box" reissue was 213: These SMER box scans are my own:
  23. The Flankers with canards are one of my favorite aircraft since long time and I was checking all available kits in market to build these nice birds. Finally I have decided to go with mainly Revell/Zvezda Su-27SM and Su-33 kits (and some "cloned" parts from Trumpeter Su-30MKK). In this topic I would like to share my work on progress with you and get your opinions/advice to improve my project. Regards Serkan
  24. Hello to all of you guys and girls on this forum.I present you my East German MiG-21f13.I built it OOB with the exception of the homemade seatbelts and the missiles and rails that came from the spares box.I used gunze and tamiya paints on this one.Enjoy it. https://youtu.be/r-jGsZITjSE
  25. This is a placeholder for my second entry in this GB. I have this kit both in an Airfix box (well, the box is long since disposed of), and a Heller 1990s boxing. I'm building the Airfix release, which I bought back in 1990: UPDATE: Box art from original Heller release (254? 354?): I cannibalised the French roundels some years ago, so I'll build it as the Greek subject. For some reason, I've never, ever, ever built a Mirage 2000 before. The shame, the shame, etc.
