  1. I've recently completed the conversion of an AMT KC-135 into an RAF Airseeker/Rivet Joint. I used the Combat Conversions resin set which provides new CFM-56 engines, new nose, cheek blisters and the various aerials and sensors that adorn the aircraft. The decals were from the Hannants' Xtradecal range. Paints were a mixture of Revell and Xtracolour enamels. Regards, Rob
  2. Last week my son pointed out the left hand warp nacelle had fallen off my Enterprise model onto one of my 1/32 Spitfires (don't be alarmed - it was fine!). Getting it out revealed the whole model was badly in need of a visit to spacedock. The fillers had cracked open and the varnish I used to use as a sealer had yellowed substantially. I subsequently pulled it apart a it more to bring it up to a more reasonable standard. I made this over 20 years ago and my skills have advanced a little since then. It is badly-fitting and will need some decent filling. I'll also need to wo
  3. After a couple of Lancia rally cars completed, had a look through the stash and thought I'd give this a go as I fancied something different Never built an AMT kit before, so it's a learning curve for me, but I've always loved the look of the American muscle cars The wife and daughter got me this and a 70 Corvette from a long shopping weekend in NY a couple of years ago, This will probably be one of the most expensive kits I'll ever make when you factor in flights and hotels etc, but at least I didn'y have to trapse around the shops with them
  4. I had attempted to build AMT's 1:25 Viper GTS kit as a child but royally messed it up. However I acquired this RT/10 in around 2007 from a friend who was moving abroad for work, and I had completed it by 2011, working on it alongside many of the other older builds I've posted up. The completed pics were taken earlier today, after a quick run over with a soft brush to remove all the dust from it sitting in my display cabinet. Paint was Halfords rattle can for the body, and brushed Humbrol enamels for the rest, except the interior which was brushed Tamiya acrylics. My friend had s
  5. Built from the 1/72 AMT kit, the only mods I did were to sand out the terrible windscreen panel etching and file flat the panels (which is a big issue with this kit). I also sanded a 'pinch' into the radome as the nose looks too fat. I also added the antennas for a Desert Storm period aircraft.
  6. Hi all, A quick post. I bought this kit from ALDI here in Australia for about $20 (about US $13 or £12.50) with the intent of building it with my 10 year old nephew. He has never done any airbrushing at all so we started off sanding the body and getting rid of all the seam lines and giving it a coat of primer. This was back in January 2020. He got a bit heavy handed in a spot of two so I sanded it back at got it ready for painting. Then the world changed with the Corona Virus social isolation rules so my nephew could no longer come a
  7. Hi Since I decided to ditch a load of my aircraft kits and build mostly Muscle car kits, I thought I’d best start one. For this I picked probably the worst first, 1 of 3 Dodge Challengers I bought, of which there is no good kit available really, all have their faults The AMT 70 R/T has been out in many boxes, this is a standard one with no extra bits. The main problem with this is the roof. It’s marketed as either a convertible or hardtop and does neither correctly. I’ve gone the hardtop route which has required a bit of filler Not any
  8. Hi guys, this is the final reveal for this very old re boxed kit. I think it was kitted originally by Lindberg, back in the mist of time, and re booted by Round 2 model company, with a few improvements I guess I should have bare metal foiled the chrome trims, but instead used Molotow chrome, brushed freehand. This was quick, but not the sharpest of lines, but I can live with it. Overall not too bad of a build, I detailed up the engine bay with some chrome parts from my spares box, just to give it a bit of life, not really a show car, I wanted it to look a bit used. I had a can of sign writers
  9. USS Defiant NX/NCC-74205 (FruitPACK FP08 for AMT) 1:420 GreenStrawberry It’s Star Trek time again, this time it’s the USS Defiant from Deep Space Nine, when they decided to give the crew of the space station a bit more robust mobility and add some greater breadth to the story-telling. The Defiant is a war ship plain and simple, and that’s all it was been designed for. As well as taking part in season 3 onwards and making an appearance in the Star Trek movie First Contact, it is a chunky little ship and has a bit of a “Voyager” look to some of her shapes, althoug
  10. Happy New Year everyone, I started this kit just after completing the 66 T-Bird build, but shelved it for a while due to getting the Lamborghini build finished by the end of last year. Anyway I have dusted the box off the shelf and hope to crack on with it over the next few weeks, I found a red example on YouTube that I like the look of, so that's what I hope the finished model will look like give or take a few details. More updates soon.
  11. Hi all, I'm new here and looking to get back in to the model-making scene, having done a few when I was a boy... I'm currently looking in to getting the AMT950 Lockheed Vega 1/48 model to build with my daughter who loves reading about Amelia Earhart - thought it would be a good Daddy-Daughter project for Christmas. So I'm looking for a set of decals to use as the ones that come in the kit are Shell Branded and not the correct decals for the Earhart Vega 5C Little Red Wagon. The only place I've seen is Red Pegasus, but they are not currently selling and not contactable. Does anyone ha
  12. Hi Comrades! My recent build is old but good AMT A-20G. This is original boxing. I will replace decals with Foxbot ones. Additions includes Eduard brass (interior and exterior, partly useful), True details wheels, Montex masks and Quickboost engines and cowlings. So far I assembled fuselage halves with some scratch additions, corrected the wing root profiles for better fit, and finished wheel wells and cockpit with some brass and scratch. The only problematic places are on gondola to upper wings connection. No major problems so far.
  13. Right, this summer seems to run with a speed provided by a high-revving small block backed up with a Muncie four speed and a positraction 12-bolt. I haven't touched a model kit for a few weeks as, well you know, the summer in Finland is short... I was astonished to see we are actually so far that even this GB begins! Now do I have a backlog, I sure do... But here's the Round2 model kits revamped AMT Camaro from my birth year, 1968. The kit dates originally even further, as it's based on a 1967 model year version that was just tweaked slightly, as was the actual Camaro too, from its introductio
  14. Hey All! Just got finished up with a car build and was longing to jump into another build, had this knocking around for years and thought I'd knock it out. Lessons learned and skills coming back after being away for so long. I want to do a nice job of this and take my time. I've been searching for aztec templates for the painting and have found some but just not sure if they are the most accurate, I found this : http://www.startrekpropauthority.com/2008/06/detailed-photostudy-of-enterprise-b-7.html and this It has a
  15. Hello all time to go for my next WIP. Im a little tired of jets at the moment, i need a subject with a propeller. I will build a P-40N from the 15th Fighter Group, 45th Fighter Squadron. Its a gilbert Island based unit and was a sister to the Makin island P-39’s in sand camouflage. I have this kit from AMT. Sadly it came with incomplete markings from the factory. It only has the nose art for the port side nose. Unfortunately i need both sides of the nose. I had a set coming from the canary islands but they disappeared somewhere in transit. AMT and Hasegawa kitted this “Geronimo” in 1
  16. My second Ken Schraeder build - this time the 1990 Lumina wearing Fred Cady decals. Far from my best and not visible in the photos thankfully - somehow I forgot to park the shell under my usual ice cream carton 'drying bay' as the Johnsons Klear / Future was going-off, so the d*mn thing does have a lot of dust particles and it bugs the h*ll out of me. Thanks for taking the time to look and / or comment, please f
  17. Have seen one of these on offer for sale 2nd hand. Not mint in box or anything but is unbuilt and complete. Price is reasonable I think... I know it's not really that accurate (inside or out) and not even in the same league as anything larger scale by Bandai or Fine Molds.....but since those are in a galaxy far far away from my budget right now, is it worth a purchase or should I pass on it? Welcome your thoughts.. Cheers, Dermot
  18. Wandering around the bench just now. This is the AMT kit of the Chevy Lumina, it's molded in a pale brownish grey (not unlike RLM 02), so priming and painting is a breeze. The BIG difference between the AMT releases and the more usual Monogram / Revell NASCAR kits of the same period is the scale; 1:25 as opposed to the more usual 1:24. Hence when I apply the decals they may look a little 'out' but I'm pretty sure that I can live with that !! As you see it here, it's wearing just one coat of Tamiya TS-26, more will follow. More soon. Ian.
  19. Kit - AMT/Ertl 1:48 Paint - All acrylics Decals - Ventura Extras - Ultracast resin seat, Hasegawa wheels. Kittyhawk IV 'Gloria Lyons' 18 Sqn & 2.SU RNZAF Bougainville 1944 Hot on the heels of the Mosquito comes an (almost) OOB build... AMT's twenty-year old (give or take) P-40N built as the well known 'Gloria Lyons' just before it was returned to NZ and repainted & refurbished. At this time it was 'owned'
  20. Hello everyone ... Well im calling it done. Geronimo is all finished and presented to you. A link to the WIP log. http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235034795-“geronimo”/ I hope Geronimo meets with your approval. Please feel free to comment. Dennis
  21. Throwing my hat in the ring with an AMT Beech Staggerwing. I bought this kit about 18 months ago on SWMBO’s urging and built it and got it about 80% done. It still needs landing gear and a re-paint. I was going for a drafted staggerwing by the US Navy, in early war two tone camouflage. I’m thinking i will change and go with a civilian version with a retro/vintage colorscheme. I have already replaced the kits radial with a better version from my spares. Also dressed up the interior a little bit. I will add photo’s of whats done when i can get home. If i actually finish this i might hav
  22. Hello all ... I just finished this earlier today. Its the old AMT Beech staggerwing. It sat unloved for about two years after i started it. So I decided to put it in the KUTA Group build section to finish it off. I couldn't figure out a paint scheme to do it in. I had originally thought when i started two years ago to do it in a military scheme. But this time i wanted civilian. Well lack of the colors pushed me towards this idea. I chose to build the plane as a war weary liason aircraft, bought by a returning veteran. I figured he was trying to start a bush flying service in the terr
  23. So heres the final installment of the Tree of Trek, AMT's horrendous kit of the space station Terok Na/Deep Space Nine. Im calling this done, if i had another six months to spare on this i might have been able to take it to another level, but i simply dont! The fit is awful. the main ring had to be wired together to align and keep together while the glue set, virtually nothing lines up without the need for filler or sanding, i could go on. Anyway heres my finished result, yes it is meant to look distressed, i used humbrol enamels, a base coat of light brown
  24. G'day all, Is there an accessory out there which converts AMT's 1:25 Chev Monte Carlo from a 1970 model to a 71/72 by way of modification to the headlights?
  25. Peterbilt 352 'Pacemaker' 1:25 plastic kit from AMT Peterbilt was founded in 1839 in Oakland California making medium to heavy trucks mainly for the US market. If you think of a classic American truck its most likely to be a Peterbilt that you imagine with a big chrome grill and hood before cab layout. Peterbilt have also built cab over trucks but with the liberal rules on truck lengths in America drivers prefer the bonneted trucks, the 352 cab over ‘Pacemaker’ is modelled in 1:25 here by AMT. The 352 was launched in 1959 and was given the nickname ‘Pacemaker’ in 1969 by a conte
