  1. Hi folks, I picked up this Italeri issue of the now 21-year-old Accurate Miniatures B-25 kit cheap with a bashed box at the Biggin Hill airshow a couple of years ago, and plan a simple OOB build with it. I fancy this scheme which is one nothing in my existing collection wears. It's a B-25C model, tail number 232496 and as can be seen is wearing the yellow ringed US insignia which were used around Operation Torch, but the aircraft has RAF fin flashes still present. The kit is generally very nice - probably the nicest 1/48 B-25 we're likely to get. I'm aware that th
  2. Here is my Yak-1 on skis, another post for a snowy day. This is Accurate Miniatures kit #3423 which was released in 1998. I first painted the normal camo scheme and then oversprayed lighter coats of white so you can see in places shadows of the fist scheme. This flew over the Leningrad front during the winter 1942/43.
  3. I have been inspired by the great I-153 on skis posted by Epeeman to post my two Russian aircraft on skis. This is the Accurate Miniatures 1/48 Il-2 Kit #3409 which was originally released in 1997. I probably completed it about 20 years ago and my recollection of the build is that this is one of the better kits I have built. Tricky in places - you have to follow the instructions - but the fit was great. At the time there were few Russian aircraft in 1/48 on the market so this was very welcome. It is snowing today where I live so this seemed perfect for this.
  4. Vindicator V-156F Masks (M48004 for Azur/Special Hobby) 1:48 Special Mask by Special Hobby The Vindicator has a long narrow greenhouse-style canopy with a lot of panes between the many frames, which may turn some modellers into gibbering wrecks at the thought of having to mask each individual one. Fear not, because as well as reboxing and updating this Accurate Miniatures kit that we reviewed here, they have also added a set of masks to their new line, making that task oh-so-much easier. Supplied on a sheet of yellow kabuki tape on a Caramac coloured
  5. Afternoon All! Second entry into this GB. I'll be a bit slow at making a start on this one - working on a few other bits too at the mow. Have the Eduard mask set already and some pre painted etched belts on their way over in the post. I'll be doing the box art markings so that it fits within the time frame needed for the GB I've been having a read over some the previous WIPs on this kit on here. From what I can gather based on what I've read here and on the IMPS link that has popped up a lot - I'm thinking it should be interior green through, with no bron
  6. Please find my latest completion Italeri's Grumman Avenger in 1/48 Scale. The kit was nearly built out of the box apart from a P.E. seat harness and decals by Print Scale for the insignia and markings plus a Techmod sheet for the stencilling since most of the original decals were not usable anymore from this ebay purchase. (Which was made clear to me prior the purchase which was at a reasonable price) Had some trouble with the windows, which required a few polishes with Tamiya polishing compound after which there were still some blemishes apparent. I once came acr
  7. Not so much "decided" as "quick, before I change my mind again!" I'm dusting off a project that I started for the Mustang Group Build, 2014 edition. Accurate Miniatures 1/48, with Ultracast conversion for Mustang Mk.I. The only thing that I actually did was rough-in the wing leading edge inserts- see link for that. (There are Photobucket images- they showed for me, but let me know if they don't for you. I may be able to get them directly here.) The first thing to decide is whether to do an NA-73 or NA-83 - as I discuss in the linked thread, there are a
  8. This is my first Accurate Miniatures kit, their Yak 1b in 1:48. Instructions offer both exploded views of the assembly while at the same time giving you written indications on how to build the model. I bought this model and Foxbot's aftermarket decals in order to build this as Lidya Litvyak's Yak 1b White 23, but that idea got shot down after being told she had never flown a Yak 1b. Thus the model languished, before deciding to give it a go and build it as White 23, because I already had gathered info regarding the camouflage. The kit comes in a top opening box with a co
  9. Hello, friends! I’ve started one of my favorite subjects, the Early P-51 family before they put the Merlin in it. I present for your approval, the photo recon version of the P-51A, the F-6B. Behold! Not much progress other than glueing the nose on, and some cockpit paint prep, but at least I’ve done SOMETHING! The plan for this one is to add a seat, exhaust, wheels, and propeller from Ultracast, and then I need to dig through my stash to find a set of decals for this plane. It’ll likely have some invasion stripes though. Pull

AK Interactive Real Color Air AMT-7 for the underside, Tamiya white for the upperside.

  13. Hi Guys, This will be my second build. This is a shelf queen. I had it started a few years back and it was shelved at that time. As I saw by coincidence this one on the shelf I had a look in the box and thought why not. After consulting Rich if it was allowed for the GB as it was near the 25% rule. But he gave me the green light for it, so here goes. It is the reboxing of the Accurate Miniatures B-25 C/D model in 1/48 scale from Italeri. As I also have the original boxing from this kit I will probably swap the decals. That kit is intended to be build as a 320
  14. Hi all, Just noticed that Italeri are about to re-release the Accurate Miniatures 1/48 B-25G and noticed in their sprue shots that it seems to contain at least most of the parts to complete it as a B-25C, including the clear parts and was wondering if anyone has the original release or the Academy one and can confirm if these parts are there and that a glass nosed C can be built from this kit. Thanks in advance. Craig.
  15. Right chaps here is my kit So I could do a B or a Mk.l. I am looking at an RAF bird for this, problem is there were only 23 Mk.ls sent to the UK! 3 of them were test aircraft (FK161, FK162 and FK165 I believe) and later FK165 was training aircraft for 98 and 180 Sqns which I have photos for all 3. The other 20 were sent to the Bahamas and became 111 OTU but I cant find any photo reference for them. Or I could try to make a Mk.ll. The kit comes with the clear parts for a C/D but not the cowlings,exhausts. So would need to scratch build a f
  16. My initial thoughts of a build for this had been to do something like a DC-6 or DC-7 but having had a rummage through the stash I have found a couple of kits that are suitable subjects. This Accurate Miniatures boxing is my first offering and is an original boxing.
  17. Grumman TBF-1C Avenger Battle of the Atlantic USS Block Island - May 1944 Here is the my final hang-over from last year which I had started for the Radial Engines Rock GB and failed to complete in time. This the 1/48 Accurate Miniatures Kit built straight from the box, and represents one of 12 Avengers flying anti-submarine duties from USS Block Island in May 1944. Aircraft from VC-55 were involved in attacks on U-Boats on May 3, 1944. Task Group 21.11 continued to harass these submarines and eventually sank U-66 on May 6. USS Block Island herself was sunk on

  19. Hi Guys, this is the second P-51 i startet in October 2016 for last Mustang Group Build... Here is the starting post: Accurate Miniatures P-51B I will finish the build log here. The P-51 in 1943 was a workhorse and much of the aircraft looked heavily worn. There was only a limited time between the next mission. I wanted to put this into a hopefully realistic way. I started with chipping the Cadillac with a sponge and a thin brush After that was done I started with the wheathering. I applied to individual panel filters made of oil paints...
  20. Hi all, while searching a good way to fix the wheel well of my P-51D I found this kit in my stash and couldn´t resist to start a second P-51. Accurate Miniatures made a really nice P-51B. This kit is very well detailed and I will only add a Ture Details Seat cause of the seat belts. The exhaust are also weak and Ultracast will provide new. It´s great to have big stash ;-) The Sidewalls are much better detailed than other offerings.
  21. I finished this a while ago and have fianlly got arround to doing the pictures. I'd heard many good things about the Accurate Miniatures Dauntless, alas my experience wasn't that positive. Some issues, but not all, were definitely of my own making but others weren't. Vague instructions , lots of flash, lots of pointless PE coupled with the odd Anders Error (AE) resulted in a build that I was glad to see the back off. The RNZAF only operated the Dauntless in combat for a short time (less than 6 months IIRC). This aircraft was flown by the Commanding Officer of 25 (Dive B

    An old chestnut this, I am in the throes of assembling an old Accurate Miniatures Avenger and I would like to know how the hell the turret fits inside the fuselage. Years ago there was a link to some instructions on the Accurate Miniatures Website but that has well gone now. Just asking as I don't fancy a cock up at this late stage, thanks in advance lads.

  23. B-25G "Shark Mouth" 1:48 Academy The B-25 Mitchell was one of the best known medium bombers of WWII, starting with the daring raid on Tokyo that began on an aircraft carrier of all places. Designed by North American, it was hastily pressed into service at the beginning of America's involvement with WWII with well over six thousand airframes constructed, and many variants fighting in all theatres of the Second World War. The B-25G was sometimes referred to as the Strafer, as it was heavily modified in the shortened nose to mount a large 75mm cannon, in a similar fashion to that mounted in
  24. This is the Accurate Miniature F3F-1 biplane I made it back in 2000 when it was first released. I made the kit straight out of the box, which included the etched rigging. If memory serves me right, any of the F3F-1 squadrons could be made with the decal sheet provided. The makings of my model are from U.S.Navy Squadron Fighting 31 based aboard USS Saratoga (CV-3). I made this model long before I discovered micro-mesh to get a smooth paint finish, and before I used gouache to highlight the panel lines. Thanks for looking, Joe
