  1. Amodel Jetstream 31 with radome, engines and propellers from the old Magna Jetstream T2. Home made DERA decals. Thanks for looking. Steve
  2. G-OBEA was the first Jetstream 31 delivered to Birmingham Executive in 1983 and flew from Birmingham for many years in a variety of colour schemes following a succession of takeovers. It has been stored in Florida since 1998. This is the AModel kit with home made decals and has been built for a very good friend of mine who used to work for BirmEx. Thanks for looking. Steve
  3. I know it's a bit of a challenge but I thought I'd give it a go. It's been in the stash for a few years and it's a beautiful little plane. So typical of pre-war FAA. There are 5 sprues of nice but softly moulded plastic, typical of a short run model. There is also a small film for the windshield. The sprues have a whole bundle of things not to be used. I think it's a kit for a number of two seater Hart versions. And a rather nice transfer sheet for an HMS Eagle based aircraft.
  4. I feel like it's been decades since I did any proper modelling, becoming a dad last Sept, growing my business and everything else in between just gets in the way. Using an old photo for the time being but will get more up later when I have the camera to hand.. Using this kit twice, I shall be building two different aircraft as the sprues allow you to do a 215 and 415 (and 215T if you really wanted). Nice little kit, including a small etch fret and a nice '50 years' special scheme decal sheet.
  5. My first build of 2018 is going to be the Amodel 1/72 Mil Mi-10 Harke. Here's the box top and contents: Pretty much standard Amodel fare: Fuselage in multiple parts that will be interesting to align, nice surface detail that I'll do well not to obliterate, no locating pins, and lots of flash. Should be fun! I have all the aftermarket I can find for it - a set of KV masks and some PE intended for an Mi-6. There's still one bit of aftermarket to decide on though - something to sling underneath - building an unloaded Mi-10 would be just plain wrong. There don't seem to be an awful lot of photos of operational Mi-10s out there - lots of photos of prototypes carrying things (particularly one of the prototypes carrying a bus at a Paris air show) but not much more than that. There are a few pointers out there on what some options could be though: A MiG-15: As Thud4444 noted in the chat thread, there's this photo of a Mi-10 which looks like it's just offloaded a MiG-15UTI: A truck or armoured personnel carrier: Seems obvious that the Mi-10 would have carried these sorts of things around and Yefim Gordon's book "Mil's Heavylift Helicopters" refers to crews in East Germany practicing with these kinds of loads. Then there's the Mi-10RVK with the Zil-135V missile launcher (which would have to be scratch-built): Or the Mi-10PP with this big ECM device underneath: Then there's the Mi-10GR which carried a Grebeshok ELINT device underneath, but I can't find any remotely useful photos of it. There's also mention online of a Mi-10 airlifting a woolly mammoth encased in ice - but of course I can't find any photos (there's a video on youtube of a Mi-26 carrying one though). Right now, the MiG-15 is the frontrunner - I like the look of the missile launcher, but don't think I'll have time to scratch build it. So I think I'm going to order an Eduard MiG-15UTI. Can't wait to get cracking tomorrow!

  8. Hello, everybody. Represent their jobs-ANT-4 with parachute cabin. To begin with, a small reference aircraft ANT-4 - prototype bomber TB-1, rose into the air on November 26, 1925 it was truly a legendary machine. Thereto in many cases the definition of "first Soviet": the first Soviet bomber designs submitted into production, the first domestic bomber-monoplane, the first Soviet all-metal bomber. In addition, ANT-4 became the ancestor of a family of multi-engine aircraft, developed under the guidance of A. N. Tupolev. It was with the advent of TB-1 that the formation of strategic aviation in our country actually began.In a closed from all sides and ventral cab CP-1 to the red army, of course, was more convenient. It weighed about a ton and could contain about the same 16 people. They were up on two narrow benches. At a signal from the commander of the soldiers slipped on the benches forward and one by one fell down into the open hatches. If " automatic
  9. De Havilland DH.104 Sea Devon C Mk.20 - 718 Sqn Fleet Air Arm - Amodel 1/72 My attempt to build at least one of everything in Ray Sturtivant's Aircraft of the Fleet Air Arm takes another step forward with this relatively obscure aircraft. The RN's Sea Devons were ex-civil machines used as VIP and light transport aircraft, based out of RNAS Culdrose in Cornwall. Definitely a short run kit, this one is very nicely formed, but needs a little care in building. The cabin windows caused me a lot of angst, but it was worth it. FredT
  10. AViS is to release a 1/72nd American Gyro AG-4 Crusader kit - ref. BX72023 Sprues V.P.
  11. Tried to find this out earlier but nothing on the web that I could see. But it's a distinctly unhelpful name to search (less so than S&M Models, but that's another story). Generally something shows up on one of those Russki forums around this time of year (greenmats?) but can't see anything there (or here for that matter). Anyone have any gen?

  13. Just finished - after it was put aside for a while - the Amodel kit of the elegant Italian Piaggio P-180 'Avanti'..... Two marking options are given in this release - a Spanish-registered charter turboprop EC-LPJ - or an Italian Marina version.... I replaced the ill-fitting clear cabin windows with black decals - printed onto clear decal sheet using my inkjet printer. Because of the decal windows, I left out the fully-detailed cabin interior (which can't be seen cleary even if the clear windows are used). The Avanti is typically Italian - like a flying Ferrari - although I have heard some people say it is ugly??? I think it's gorgeous. Ken PS - Some more photos - plus sprue and build shots.... here.
  14. Dear fellow Britmodellers, my next kit finished is the 1/72 Amodel Yak-9U, a model I picked from the 'second hand' box of my local hobby shop this summer. The kit is typical short-run, without alignment pins, but generally good surface detail. Most parts need care and clean-up before assembly. I replaced the pitot tube with a piece of wire. Amodel's decals are among the worst I've ever seen, having a thick carrier film that's fraying around its edges and color mis-prints; what's supposed to be Red is actually Orange. I only used some instruction markings from the kit's decal sheet and replaced Red Stars, Bort number and nose art from a Print Scale sheet (72072). Much to my disappointment, I found out that some of the Red Stars on the Print Scale sheet are out of register, carrying white shadow lines. Represented is the aircraft of Georgiy Baevski, Hero of the Soviet Union (19 victories) from the 5th Guards Fighter Regiment (GIAP), Germany March 1945. Painted with acrylics from the Gunze/Mr.Hobby range, all photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Greetings from Vienna! Kind regards from Vienna.
  15. <airliners.net pic removed> See below for reasoning. Здравствуйте! Представляю вашему вниманию новейшую модель. Маленькая помощь: Ту-114 Россия (сообщение НАТО: Cleat - «Клип») - это турбовинтовой пассажирский самолет с длинной дистанцией, спроектированный в СССР в 1955 году на базе бомбардировщика Ту-95. Произведен в 1961-1965 годах на заводе № 18 в Куйбышеве. Всего было построено только 31, серийный самолет. Что касается строительства, то от меня кровь сильно пила. Но ... несмотря на суставы (и, может быть, школы), конечный результат я доволен и смотрю на шкаф, он замечательный - вообще, мне не стыдно из этого! Во время строительства некоторые трудности пытались показать на фотографии.Крылья, учитывая предстоящую стрельбу в полевых условиях, обеспеченную 2-мя проходами от крыла через фюзеляж в крыло. Я особенно хочу отметить в комплекте Windows: хорошо отделить их от литника было невозможно. Так что Windows - прозрачный пластик из-под детских игрушек и еще что-то ... Съемка, как вы знаете

  18. He everyone! This is my next model. From Ukraine's "A-model" firm. Who are familiar with the products of this company - he knows that it's actually not a model, and the workpiece. Model is still necessary to release the excess plastic and work a bit like a sculptor)).
  19. Good afternoon all, Hope you like my take on the 1/72 AModel Shavrov Sh-2 Hydroplane in Finland. AModel kits are good fun but you need a lot of patience... Kit required all parts to be removed from the runners with a razor saw, much reshaping and sanding (using wet n dry paper), and model filler smoothed flat using wet n dry paper - Preferably wet to cut down the dust debris. I used the new range of Lifecolor acrylic paints covering colors used by Finland - Brush painted as always. The big surprise for me was the decals they worked really well and even submitted my rough handling and application. I thoroughly enjoyed making this model kit and this won't be my last AModel kit for sure ! Comments and advice welcome.
  20. From other end of the scale after working on my Monogram F-106 comes this 1/144 Canberra. It is by A-model and I think I used nearly as much filler on this as I did on my Airfix 1/48th Canberra. To allow for multiple variants the nose centre section and tail are separate assemblies so alignment was fun. I'm not sure I got it right though. Like it's 1/48 scale counterpart no matter how much lead shot I packed into the nose it was still going to be a tail sitter so as with the real thing a prop was placed under the rear fuselage. I reshaped the nose to remove the bomb-aimers window to create a T.13 nose then disaster struck and I ruined the canopy. Hence the black painted cockpit. Something that looks ok-ish in 1/144 but I reckoned the chances of a replacement part were less than zero. The decal are mixture of the kit, which surprisingly nice, Xtradecal for the codes and the silver ferns on the roundels are hand painted. As always thanks for looking.
  21. Hello people , This is my first WIP. I have really enjoyed reading and watching the WIP's of others and feel it is time to try to give something back. I have a variety of interests in terms of modelling, but I always seem to come back to aircraft and AFV's of the Spanish Civil War. The variety of aircraft used is quite incredible and moreover, many were simply 1930's 'Golden Age' civil aircraft impressed into often quite bizarre roles; for example passenger Vultee aircraft and Fokker FVII/3M's becoming bombers. Nevertheless this was a proving ground or test run for many new technologies. In terms of aircraft the I-16 'Mosca', (the subject of this build) and the very first Bf-109 'V' prototypes then A (or is it B1?) through to E series, saw their baptism of fire here. The history of the conflict is well documented on the internet and in good old traditional books, and there are some simply splendid (albeit sometimes a little rare and expensive) books available on the aircraft involved in the conflict. Controversy about colours and actual aircraft involved is absolutely rampant and in a way, quite liberating. Within the community of Spanish Civil War modelling enthusiasts I know (not many!) a great deal of encouragement and artistic licence is granted. There is so little that can be certain, from actual numbers/codes of aircraft involved (BF-109C for example) to types (was there really an RWD-8 and a Bloch MB-200?) to, well, just about everything down to the colour of a particular Republican pilot's socks, or the strength and lens thickness of a particular Legion Condor pilot's monocle . OK. About me. I'm currently not very good at making models. In fact I'm certain that I'm not as good as I was when I was 9 years old and high as a kite on polystyrene cement most of the week, making at least 2 models a week, with very high standards for a little boy. But it was fun wasn't it? My grandfather had been a career RN man (Russian Convoys and MTO in WWII) and encouraged me into modelling. My introduction to modelling is described on the intro post I made some months ago to BM and a little more in my 'about me' so I won't ramble on about my early abject failures. Needless to say I returned to models after a bereavement in 2003 and it really helped me, like a breath of fresh air. Then work and an illness prevented me from starting again until last year. I thoroughly enjoy it, but I keep on trashing my efforts. Perhaps time to lower my standards? I think it would be far better to use this opportunity to probably demonstrate to the world at large that I am still highly capable of an abject failure.... Thus, onto this model. Amodel. What a fascinating company. That's one adjective. Others can be used. Nearly all of their kits pose a challenge in one way or another, they are short run, yet often they are short run for so long that the very sprue runs, and we end up with nothing but flash from which to try to identify and carve our own components . Nevertheless, they kit some wonderfully obscure subjects, and I love the wonderfully obscure! Thus - I feel I help keep someone, possibly in a cold dark cellar in Murmansk, with a scriber, some faded plans, some resin and a bottle of vodka, in a job. Some of their kits go together beautifully straight from the sprue, but there are some, like this little, tubby, I-16 that can be exceedingly variable in terms of moulding quality. In this case, from production batch to production batch. Ask me how I know. I decided to post this as my first WIP because, frankly, this model can be a real pain in the derriere. I know it isn't just me; it is known for possibly needing a bucket of filler. Moreover it has some issues, probably the main one is the wings. They aren't really of the right kind for an I-16 type 5 of the SCW (as I will refer to that very 'uncivil' war from now on). Other issues I will discuss as we progress together into the build. I have not completed a model since I started again around a year ago. To be honest they have all been rubbish and have flown directly into the dustbin. Often. Around 10 now. I have tried to build this one 4 times now. Dustbin; 3 times out of 4. The 4th attempt is in the drawer of doom. This will be attempt number 5. I am posting this, perhaps foolishly, because I had a Really Big Think™. I may, just may, have figured out a way to make this without the usually required bucket of filler. I'm sure I'm not the first, but I may perhaps be the most incompetent, so it should surely provide a little entertainment. I hope so anyway. I'm not awfully sure I have this Photobucket thing worked out yet, so I will only try to post a picture of the box here. I hope it works. I hope this WIP at least helps fellow modellers to see the fun a cheap little East European kit can give, even when it is utterly frustrating and maybe, together, we can find a way to tame this little beastie ?. Best regards, thanks for reading and happy modelling Tony Edited for terrible spelling.
  22. I'm going to build two Antonov twins - an An-24T and an An-30 - both 1/72 Amodel kits. There's a lot of commonality between the two kits so I'm going to build both together. I've more or less decided that the An-30 will be in MIAT Mongolian Airlines colours and the An-24T will be in Sudan Airways colours. There are a quite a few good colour schemes for an An-30 but the Mongolian one stood out, whilst there aren't many that stand out for an An-24T - Sudan Airways being the exception. You can see what I have in mind at these links: Sudan Airways An-24T MIAT Mongolian Airlines An-30 I'll have to print my own decals for both of these. There are quite a lot of photos of the Mongolian An-30s online - plus several other aircraft in the same colour scheme - so there are some good references to work from for that one. There aren't so many photos of the Sudanese An-24, but it's a fairly simple colour scheme, so should be ok. I won't be using a lot of aftermarket - just Armory resin wheels and KV masks (a mask is essential for the glazed nose of the An-30!). Box and sprue shots (there's a lot of empty space in these boxes!): Can't wait to get started!
  23. Here's my Amodel Antonov An-24T, built for the From Russia With Love group build. Build thread is here. It's finished as CCCP-46280, which was the fourth production An-24T, in the colour scheme it wore at the 1967 and 1969 Paris air shows. The mustard yellow colour seems quite appropriate for the era - perhaps even ahead of the time, it seems a bit 70s to me (it reminds me of the colour of our next door neighbour's Morris Marina). The kit is fairly standard Amodel - nothing fits particularly well, but with careful alignment and a bit of fettling everything goes together ok. There's some quite nice, very fine surface detail which inevitably was largely obliterated through extensive use of sanding sticks. The fuselage was in four parts, which is pretty much standard for Amodel kits of this size, which required careful work to line everything up properly - that was probably the worst of it. Not much aftermarket used - the wheels are from Armory (the kit wheels were probably ok but I hate assembling two-piece wheels) and I used KV masks (worked very well, left a bit of residue on the windows though - the best solution seemed to be to lick it and rub it off with kitchen paper) The yellow is a mix of Tamiya yellow and dark yellow. I seem to have spent quite a lot of my modelling time over the last few weekends masking! Decals are from Bsmodelle (very nice, very cheap, thin but not too thin, went on and conformed very well but you have to position them carefully as they don't want to move once they're on). All in all, a satisfying build, and I'm pretty pleased with how it's turned out. I'm quite fond of the colour scheme although I'm not sure I'd have painted the real thing like this. On to the photos:

  25. OK, I'm in with a dh 60G from Amodel in 1/48. The most commented downside of this kit is that Amodel don't give a rigging diagram in the instructions - but that should be solvable from the web. In the box, there are three decal choices - I'll probable go for the forth option On the sprue, this kit looks great, and I must admit that I'm tempted to get one, or both, of the other Amodel dh60's (Cirrus or Metal Moths) ... but let's start simple(r)
