  1. Here is my first of 3 Northrop F-89 Scorpions. This is the F-89J built from the Revell kit. With 2 more to come, both in NMF I wanted to do this one in ADC gray so I borrowed some the Iowa Air National Guard decals from the Academy (rebox of the Hobbycraft) kit. I also used Pavla seats. The Revell kit was good with mostly good fit. The exception being the usual wing to fuselage joint which requires some attention. The Pavla seats were nicer the the kit ones but were imperfect resin casting with pin holes. In the past I have had issues with Academy decals silvering that could not be fixed no matter how much solvent I used but, these were pretty good with no silvering. Still I used the Revell decals where possible. The Revell decals are marked Made in Italy but they were definitely not Cartogrf in quality. All the paints were AK Real Color with the exception of Alclad II for the exhausts. All in all a pleasant 12 day build that I think came out pretty nice. Next up will be an F-89H mostly using the Revell kit but with the tip tanks/weapons pods from the Hobbycraft kit, Enjoy
  2. This is my Monogram Phantom in 1/48 scale. It took me quite some time to finish. Especially the intakes took quite some filling and sanding. It's more or less OOB, but I used a decal sheet from Caracal (ANG Phantoms) and an an-alq119 from the Italeri RF-4E kit. Paints I used were mainly Vallejo and Mig Ammo acrylics. Some oils for washing and weathering. When kit has raised panellines I use nail buffers to remove the paint from the panellines. O, and I added some RBF tags from Eduard and scratchbuilt rear-view mirrors and some other stuff for the cockpit. Hope you like my Spook.. Kind regards, Gerben
  3. More Air National Guard Mustangs (48036) 1:48 Iliad Design Iliad have sent us some of their latest releases, this one being their second sheet for US Air National Guard Mustangs. Post WWII nearly all the US ANG units had the P-51D later designated the F-51D. Arriving in a ziplok bag, each set has a set of profiles as the cover page, with the decal sheet visible on the flipside so you can readily see what you're buying with the flick of a wrist. The printing is up to their usual standard, having good registration, colour density and sharpness, with a thin carrier film cropped close to the printed areas. The instructions are printed next to the profiles, with relevant points marked with arrows, and on the reverse are overhead views with the same arrowed captions. The sheet provides decals for 4 States ANG Units. The schemes are; 1. Oklahoma 125th Fighter Sqn. 2. Minnesota ANG 3. Texas ANG, based at Ellington Field. 4. Washington ANG, 116th Fighter Sqn.

  4. Hi again all you Phantom lovers! I've found some sunshine in the form of images of F-4Ds taken during a visit to the 170th Tactical Fighter Squadron, Illinois Air National Guard at Capital Airport, Springfield, Illinois in May 1982. Note the fresh-painted machine with wrap-around camouflage in the final image. They need little introduction so here goes: As always, I hope you like them Martin
  5. Air National Guard C-47s 1:72 Iliad Designs Iliad Designs is a producer of decals, colour charts and books from Canada's capital city Ottawa. This sheet sees them continue their line of Air National Guard decals with a selection of C-47s from the early years of the ANG. Schemes for four aircraft are included, all of which are interesting in their own right. The aircraft in question are: C-47A 0-92079 of the Puerto Rico ANG; VC-47A 315568 'The Old Dominion' of the Virginia ANG; C-47A 315555 of the Nebraska National Guard; and C-47A 220691 of the New Mexico National Guard. Aside from being an interesting collection of schemes, the decals themselves look to be of very good quality. The printing is crisp and sharp, while colours are bold and solid. They look thin and glossy on the sheet, so they should perform well. Conclusion This interesting sheet is nicely printed. If you have the (relatively) new Airfix kit or the older Italeri kit waiting for you to build it, then this sheet will enable you to produce a range of aircraft with interesting variation in markings. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  6. Hi, here's my latest build, built for a GB over on Flory Models. Nice kit, not great instructions. built SFTB with Gunze paints and a Mig Ammo grey washUntitled by bryn robinson, on Flickr Untitled by bryn robinson, on Flickr Untitled by bryn robinson, on Flickr Untitled by bryn robinson, on Flickr Untitled by bryn robinson, on Flickr Untitled by bryn robinson, on Flickr . Lost a bit of mojo towards the end, but that's down to me. Anyway thanks for looking. FF
  7. Air National Guard P-47s 1:48 Iliad Designs In the US post war with the increasing development of jet technology, what were frontline aircraft quickly filtered down to Air National Guard units. This sheet from Iliad allows the modeller a choice of three Air national Guard units which were issued with the P-47D & N Thunderbolts. Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and Maryland are the three states to feature on this new sheet. The decals are glossy and sharp, the colours are good and dense. Carrier film in minimal. The code numbers and national insignia have cleverly been sectioned to fit over intercooler outlets. Conclusion These decals will make a different P-47. Highly Recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  8. The phinal of my three 1/48th McDonnell-Douglas Phantom builds, this is the ubiquitous Revell F-4C/D kit built as F-4C serial 64-0776 operated by the 142nd FIG out of Portland, OR by the Oregon Air National Guard in June 1989. she was named 'Miss Piggy' and was a triple Mig killer. This is the fifth 'Revellogram' 1/48th F-4 that I have built and I still love this kit. On the downside it has raised panel lines and a couple of small issues but in general the kit goes together really well and the end result has that essential 'Phantomness' that I have loved since I saw my first Phantom air display at RNAS Yeovilton in 1970. This is my first Hill Gray painted Phantom. The paints are standard Humbrol enamels with Metal Cote applied to the jet exhaust areas. I have finally lost patience with my Harder & Steenbeck Ultra airbrush - it is almost totally bunged up and I can't unbung it - so I reverted to my ancient Badger 200 airbrush and it gave me really good results. The masking went well too and the result is a very clean looking Hill Gray Phantom The decals are from Speed Hunter Graphics 'USAF Phantom MiG Killers - Part 1'. Speed Hunter Graphics is a offshoot of Reid Air Publishing and is run by one Jake Melampy who is a superb aviation photographer and has published several books for military jet modellers in the USA. Hopefully the photos give an idea of the quality of these decals, they apply very easily and they are very detailed. The Oregon eagle on the tail fin below is a three part decal: Even the plain side looks good: 64-0776 is quite unique in that she is the only Phantom to have used each of its three weapons systems to destroy a Mig. I was keen to reflect this in the weapons loaded and I raided the new Academy F-4B kit which contains sprues with multiple versions of Sidewinders, Sparrows and a gun pod. This ANG F-4C carries 4 x AIM-4J Sidewinders, 4 x AIM-7F Sparrows and an SUU-23A 20mm gun pod. The decals and paints were sealed with a spray of Humbrol enamel matt varnish. I decided not to add weathering to this Phantom, the majority of ANG Phantoms of this time period were kept in very clean condition and from photos I have seen posted elsewhere 'Miss Piggy' was no exception. What would I do better next time? I lost patience with the gap behind the rear cockpit canopy, next time I will use filler here (as another Phantom modeller has shown here recently). i also didn't really pay full attention to the application of the decals and a couple of them have silvered. So that is the last of my three Phantoms, I really enjoyed building this one. Think I need to take a break from Phantoms for a while now! Comments and critiques very welcome Michael
