  1. Since long time I was waiting for Zvezda's new Su-27UB kit (7294) for one of my ongoing Flanker projects namely Su-35UB. The main idea is to merge Zvezda's Su-33 and Su-27UB kits. Next I will add some pictures of my work in progress. Regards, Serkan
  2. 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:
  3. Here's my first contribution to the GB. The strangely configured Beech Staggerwing which I'll be building as a Fleet Air Arm Traveller MkI. The boxing gives 4 options, an RAF, FAA (it does say RAF but the Royal Navy ID over the serial sort of gives it away), Finish and Chinese Nationalist options. Mine will be the FAA option in the US blues. Obligtaory sprue shot. Single sprue with minimal flash and most things reasonably well moulded but only time will tell. Nice transfer sheet and two tiny transparency sprues.
  4. As I was digging through the stash for something else today I came across this, the Revell boxing of Matchbox's 17 Pounder A/T gun, it's tractor and a Jeep. Along with probably the finest piece of Matchbox's diorama bases. As it was cheap in the first place and reduced further then it's an ideal contribution to this GB. I think I got it either at Modelzone when closing or at an outlet store in Croydon which was flogging off a lot of Modelzone stock. There's three dark green sprues which are crisply moulded and relatively flash free containing a reasonably detailed ant
  5. Built this one OOB.I did no add anything extra.The great eduard kit.It fits almost perfect making this a quick build.Paints used are gunze.The varnishes are vallejo and ak.
  6. Hi all, having just rolled the Canuck out of the workshop onto the apron, my bench is now heaving a sigh of relief... but that relief is to be short-lived as I contemplate the next phase of my stash reduction plan. So, I've done a tandem-build before, where I did an Airfix Hawk and a MisterCraft P-40K on the same WIP thread a while back - which was moderately interesting. Over the weekend I was perusing what I had left to build (don't go there!) and pondering what subjects I'd not done before, and what subjects tend not to be so common on here. It occurred to me that I had no less
  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. Not one of the usual suspects for a Beaufighter kit, firstly a Merlin engined option and one from High Planes Models. Last but not least all three options in the box are Fleet Air Arm options. The FAA used Beaufighters in a number of secondary roles especially in and around Africa; fleet requirements and convoy protection being the main ones. The HPM kit will take a bit of work to get it knocked into shape, the majority of the kit is a hard plastic with a fair amount of flash but under that there's a fair amount of nice detail. Vac formed can
  9. Hi everyone, My first entry for this GB (I'm planning at least two if time permits) will be the Airfix Blenheim Mk.IV (using Eduard photo-etch and canopy masks, and an AML camouflage mask). I built one of these last year for the Battle of Britain Group Build in Bomber Command colours. This time I'll be focusing on a Coastal Command machine from the same era. I'm yet to decide on a particular aircraft to represent but almost certainly one from 53 Sqn or 59 Sqn, which undertook coastal patrols, night raids on occupied ports, and daring daytime shipping strike
  10. I've no idea how I ended up with two boxings of this kit. But the kits have identical sprues and it's only the transfers and instructions that differ. So it makes sense to build them together in the GB. A mini-GB within the GB, perhaps. Two grey plastic sprues that look well moulded with options of props, tailpanes and fins, and armaments on them. Some etch and film and quite nice transfer sheets for four versions in each box. Clear instructions. Four sets of colour call outs on each, mainly

The other builds A legion Condor E-3 Airfix with a new canopy A 109 E-3 from III/JG 53 Battle of Britain during the period where Goering ordered them to paint out the Pik Aus badge so they painted out their swastikas in protest.

  13. This is my first entry for this GB. I bought it at the end of 2020. I have Tigers (and King Tigers) from a whole range of manufacturers, and I wasn't going to pass up the chance to get yet another kit at a very reasonable price. Nowadays, many 1/72 AFV kits cost between 15 and 20 Euros, disqualifying them from this GB. I wanted to include at least one AFV in this GB, without resort to second-hand bargains, or a deep dive into the bowels of the stash. I will definitely not be using the "simplified" option for the tracks and running gear.
  14. Hello modellers, i finally finished this bird. The kit ist the Great Wall Hobby F-15E with Aires ACES II ejection seats and PJ production pilots. Further addons used are an Eduard Sniper ATP, AIM-120 training missile and a modified ACMI pod from Hasegawa. But the real highlight is the awesome DXM decal sheet, it isn't perfect but very very good.

  15. Not much to say here, this is one of two entries for the GB. I have several of these in the stash, and it's about time I built one. The Israeli aircraft has the distinctive 3-colour Israeli camouflage. I don't believe I've ever done this scheme before*, so time to remedy that. *Although I also have an F-16 waiting to be completed in the same basic scheme.
  16. I'll join in with this from the stash. I bought it long time ago and I don't know where or when. I've made one a few years back and it goes together quite well. The price is tucked round the side and I was surprised it was so cheap. Not quite the 2/- Airfix Spitfire of 1960.
  17. Folks.... need some advice: Got a 'need' to build an early F-16, either an A, or A+ / MLU machine, it's not particularly important as to which one of those nor the nationality as decals are pretty easily available. Really need / want the best or most accurate kit in 1:72. I seem to recall that the RoG kit from 2000 and all it's subsequent re-releases was supposed to be a very good A / MLU, just wondered what you guys think about it ? Over to you, thanks in advance. Ian.
  18. D.H. 60T Moth 1:72 Amodel First flown nearly 90 years ago, the DH-60 Moth series of 2 seat biplanes were a great success and were widely used by civil clubs in the inter war period. By the late 1920's almost 85% of aircraft used by UK flying clubs were DH-60's of one type or another. It was developed though several versions, the most notable being the DH-60G Gypsy Moth, and the DH-60M 'Metal Moth' where the wooden 'skeleton' of the fuselage structure was replaced by a metal one. Various engines were used such as the Genet, Cirrus, and Gypsy, and this would often prefix the name of th
  19. Here is my completed Magna resin Albacore. It's been a while on the stocks, partly because Magna kits are pretty much the basis for a build, albeit usually accurate, so in the end turn out looking good. The multi media; resin, vac form and white metal, nature also is challenging and the canopy masking was a labour of love of the first order. I have no idea how many panels but I think it was around 30 and no two were the same and all, or nearly all were of an irregular shape. I also decided as the airframe is pretty big I'd add some resemblance of rigging using SBS etch. The transfers with the
  20. Hello I would like to present a model of U-boot in huge scale 1:72 from Revell. Many extras was applied during a build. Enjoy.
  21. I decided that this year I would start to deal with an area in the stash known as the dust bowl where a number of almost completed kits and those needing some repair lie languishing simply accumulating dust. I've already finished an Aeroclub Fairey Flycatcher which will end up in the RFI section soon once I get the motivation for a photo shoot session. My next choice is this Airfix Vampire trainer which is one of two I started building as FAA Admiral's Barges. The second needs a bit more work as it needs some repairs to the undercarriage. This one has been built OOB apart from the colour schem
  22. I started this Magna, mainly resin, with a sprinkling of white metal and an enormous vac formed canopy in the Mediterranean Theatre of Operations GB in the latter half of last year. I got quite far along but stalled at the canopy mask stage and failed to finish it in time. It didn't go to the Shelf of Doom as although it's challenging by its nature it's not inherently a bad kit. It's down to my reluctance to attack the masking of a very complex canopy. I did start with strips of masking tape but there's not that many long straight lines of framing. It's like a greenhouse made out of glass offc
  23. I bough the this several years ago as I wanted to build a bundle of interwar FAA aircraft. I always left it as I was worried it was more difficult than I was able to build. I don't know why as I've built some Magna kits and this is a much more refined resin kit than anything Magna have made. The Plover was built to the same spec as the Flycatcher and although the Plover had better performance it was not as robust as the Flycatcher which went onto to be the Fleet fighter. Three Plover prototypes and 10 production aircraft were built and they served in 403 and 404 Flights of the FAA for a year o
  24. I picked up this CMR Seafire a while ago when the only way to make a Seafire in 1:72 was to convert a Spitfire kit or one of CMR's resin kits. I've a few in the stash and some have been built but then Admiral, Sword and AZ Models all introduced injection moulded Seafires, and almost every Seafire Mark is available IM. So the resin kits have been left sitting in their bags. Which is a shame as they're accurate, nicely moulded and well engineered. And unlike some resin ranges they're not all that challenging to build. This build is therefore not something a bit esoteric like my Parn
  25. Hello! I've actually almost finished this kit so most of this is just recap. It all started with a masking tape seatbelt and a dream about a year ago now... Aaaaand of course a model too... I was very much looking forward to making it as Lightnings are one of my favourite aircraft and I have only built one before it and that one turned out baaaad (pics of both together later). I decided to go for the Metallic RAF Luqa/Cyprus 1974 decal scheme So, as I was saying, I started with the seat, I added a bunch of stuff using card, bluetack (cursed
