  2. This is a kit I've had on my to-do list for a relatively short time, but needs must, opportunity rises etc. etc... Did not expect to join the GB at the beginning, however, being confined to home there's no time like now. So, without further ado, I present you: The Swedish* Heavy Metal Display - Solo build. The kit is delivered in a sturdy, compact, but tall two-part packaging: Clicking around the site, I've also taken the liberty of adding some Aftermarket bits. Consisting of some LED lights:
  3. Hey everyone! I could use some of your expertise about now. I need a set of 1/48 seat belts/harnesses appropriate for the Meteor Mk I prototype. I've been doing a bit of online shopping and see several types of RAF WWII belts. Can anyone please suggest which would be suitable for my Tamiya model? Any favorites out there? I've never used fabric belts but they would seem better intuitively to me. I've found pre-painted metal belts difficult to pose naturally. Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions! Cheers! Gary
  4. Hey my modelling guru's, I need some info on using resin upgrades, and I have not been able to find much via YT. Partly because I am in a new house and haven't been able to get my internet hooked up yet, so I have to buy load on my crappy phone, and its REALLY SLOW, plus, most of the videos are based on full resin kits in Gundam or something, not really the kind of upgrade kits we face. Anyway, I am pretty sure I got the cleaning resin part, using respirators when sanding/cutting (what ever happened to the old highschool shop class, where lost fingers were a thing of pride, we are
  5. Late to the field, but with a nice compact build that should be fairly quick. I'll be building an A12 Matilda II CS of the Australian 2/4 armoured. Based on this picture found with a quick web search; Box shot And sprue shot Not shown here, because it's still on the way from Parabellum, is the Gasoline Matilda Frog conversion kit that I will be raiding the turret collar, tracks and brush guards etc from. I also think I have RB models Besa barrels in the stash, if so I will be using one in this build as well. Work has commenced, mor
  6. I've got two Takom 1/35 FV432's to build, and looking at the gpmg's in the kit I think a little a/m- a metal barrel, some etch perhaps - might improve it. Or even a resin job. I've done a search in Hannants as a start, with negative results. Probably poor search terms, but I have tried a fair few options. Seeking advice from the (shameless flattery!) Excellent AFV modellers on B/M as to is such a/m exists, and who makes it.
  7. Eduard Photo Etch Detail Sets for Airfix Fairey Swordfish Kit 1:72 Eduard Of all Airfix’s recent kits, the 1:72 Swordfish seems to be the one that has set the benchmark for future releases. Airfix really seem to have hit the mark with their Stringbag, as the kit features a perfect blend of fine detail, clever engineering and buildability. Now Eduard have released a brace of photo etch detail sets to build on the kit’s tremendous foundations. Swordfish (self adhesive) 1:72 Eduard The first set is a one-stop-shop for producing a super-detailed Swor
  8. Hello all, I am currently building two Eduard Fw190-A8s and am looking for a prop with external weights for one of my chosen options. Here’s the build: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235035722-eduard-fw-190-a8-dual-build/ Can anyone suggest an aftermarket company that produces this in 1/48th, preferably in the UK. Thanks Howard
  9. Hi everybody, Me and Juan (JFVicente) decided to try a parallel build this time. A few months ago, Juan asked me to sell him decals and masks for "Blue 57" from Begemot decal sheet. I said to him he will get them for free (whole Flanker Family 2 sheet) if we do two Flankers together. Then he promised a pair of aftermarket Alamo missiles, and in return I will send him my Archers, as Eduard gives too much for single plane in one box. So, I took another Ukrainian Flanker, from Eduard re-edition of Academy, and here we are. Each of us will complete different Ukrainian single seater. I will go
  10. Howdy all. I have a question about aftermarket stuff for a Tamiya 1/35 Sdkfz 251/9 Ausf D. I have tracks lined up ,but don't know what to get to improve the detail of the kit. The only thing I can find specifically for this vehicle is a Verlinden set that has some photo etch and stowage type stuff. Other than that all I can find for Tamiya kits are other versions, i.e., 251/1, 251/7 and what not. So my questions are these: anybody have experience with the Verlinden set? and; will the other version stuff work for a 251/9 as long as it is the Ausf D? My knowledge of these vehicles is sever
  11. Hi! Sorry for not posting for ages, I lost my login details like an idiot! Anyhow - we have a Customer Model Album on out Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/neomegaresin/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1303897316304990 If you have any models with NeOmega, Vector or Komplekt Zip sets in, then we'd love to see them!
  12. Hi all, I've been building the Revell A319/20's recently, putting a little more work into them each time. I'd really like some metal fan blades for the engines. A quick search hasn't turned up any. Does anyone know if they're out there? Chris
  13. Good morning, I just thought I might ask the advice and opinions of members of the forum in regards to a project i'm starting. I was thinking of doing a 1:72 Airfix Vulcan "properly"; with aftermarket engines, intakes (possibly, you'll see later) and the white ensign model (WEM) stuff. I've also thought it might be an appropriate model to do some rescribing for the first time, along with flory washes, photo etch and resin- I had to choose this model So the few questions I would like to ask are as follows: 1. Can you use a steel ruler and is it adviseable for linear panel lines as a guide
  14. The next project, Need a break from green and black so I have decided to finish this project. I started it last year and for some reason put it to one side. Now I'm going to finish it. I was this morning going to start on the AFV Club Scimitar but having a few part started kits knocking around slowly getting damaged I thought it best to try and get some finished. A lot of work involved as the Tamiya kit is dated, It still builds into a great little tank if you put your mind too it. Dan
  15. HI chaps, this has been on my most wanted list for a while now and i finally managed to get one yesterday. Its an absolute monster of a kit, but i'm wondering if there is any 'must have' aftermarket for it? I'm hoping to make a start on it early in the new year, thinking about creating a diorama with it recovering a tank (not sure what yet though, could even use a Tiger 1 i have waiting to built) If anyone here has built one i would be very interested to hear your thoughts on it, and pics would be a bonus. Thanks, Nick
  16. I was chatting with an acquaintance the other day combining my twin passions of modelling & technology! He mentioned how 3D printing was coming on leaps & bounds and how it would find its way into the home before too long. Having seen for myself at CES 13 in Vegas (the massive annual consumer electronics show) & in TV reports from CES 14, it's clear this area is one to watch. Are they any views how this would impact on the accessorises/after-market market for modelling? The clever bit will be doing the design work on CAD and then selling the files as downloads that can be 'print
  17. Hi folks, I'm currently beginning the 1/48 Airfix Sea Harrier FRS 1 which is a solid base kit but seriously lacking in detail. I've already purchased cockpit goodies and some PE from Eduard but wondered if anyone has experience of the best purchases for after market air intakes, undercarriage, ordnance etc to help make it sing. If anyone has any advice or guidance it would be extremely appreciated Many thanks Kris
  18. Are there any after-market resin or photo-etch parts which are really recommended for this kit, or is it good enough out of the box? If any resin parts are really beneficial, are they an easy fit? Derek
  19. Hi All, After passing the mark of 10 builds (3 for real and 7 test subjects) the newbie here is setting a bit of a challenge and will try to build the RAF Reg Arrow 50th display season (1:48). This one here. My plan is to have it in rest and with open canopy which then requires nice details as it will also be my first aircraft that will have a base. So I thought about asking you guys for suggestions of 2 aftermarket products, a set of seats as this one wont have pilots and a cockpit details set (maybe just the dashboard details would do). Also any other tip about this kit is welcome. I kno
  20. Hi, I'm not sure if I am posting in the correct section so apologies if I am not! So as I'm just easing myself back into the hobby I saw the 1/72 Gnat T.1 kit and had to pick it up so I think I am going to make this my next build as its looks a nice easy straight forward build, however I am considering upgrading the cockpit to an aftermarket set. Has anyone else built one of these and used the Pavla Pit and if so were there any issues I should consider prior to ordering one? I guess if I am going to use the pit kit the next question is has anyone cut the canopy so that it can be left open to
  21. Good morning everyone, My lovely wife has decided to buy me a copy of the 1/32 Hawker Hunter by Revell because just because. I want to paint it up in Indian Air Force colours but have not been able to find any appropriate decals in this scale after an evening spent searching. Do any of you fine modellers, artists and plastic craftsmen and engineers know of any I may have missed. Also, is there any good aftermarket for the aircraft, and more importantly does it need it? Cheers and thank you ladies and gentlemen, any help and guidance you can provide will be very gratefully recieved indeed,
  22. Photo Etch and Resin Detail Sets for Airfix Short Stirling 1:72 White Ensign Models When Bobby Moore lifted the Jules Rimet trophy back in 1966, few could have guessed that Airfix’s then brand new Short Stirling would still be soldiering on as the only available kit of the RAF’s first wartime ‘heavy’ nearly fifty years later. Despite the longevity of this venerable kit however, relatively few aftermarket items have been released for it over the years. Now White Ensign Models have released two comprehensive frets of photo etched parts and a set of resin wheels to help us to spruce u
  23. Hi All, Do brass aftermarket propellers for the back end of the Tamiya 1/350 scale HMS Prince of Wales kit exist and if they do where can I purchase some? Cheers, Daniel.
  24. About 15 years ago I wrote a book about mold making and resin casting which was based on my apprenticeship with a master mold maker and from experiences I had while operating a resin model kit manufacturing company back in the 1990s (Wingnut International). The book was self published and rather hard to get, being a completely "in house" operation--I printed, bound and sold the book directly to my customers. It was a modest success but as is the nature with many books, sales gradually dwindled until it was no longer worth my time and effort to keep it in print. The book attained sort of a
  25. Now that my aftermarket engines have arrived from Welsh Models I can finally do a side-by side comparison. While I do not make any definitive claim that the Welsh Models engines are 100% accurate, they are most definitely smaller than the Roden kit engines. I'll leave this image with you and let you make the judgement which suits you best. The Welsh engine is above the Roden. It's interesting how the two manufacturers treat the aft pylon extension. It's a shame that the Roden engines are so large, because otherwise they're very nicely detailed.
