    416th BG A-20's

    Knowing how many of you are A-20/Havoc/Boston fans, I thought this footage might be of interest. The 416th is my favorite ETO A-20 group, and there are some excellent modeling details to be seen- nose art, unusual wing bomb rack loadouts,, and even some A-26's thrown in for good measure! The A-20 was such a handsome aircraft, in my opinion. Hopefully you will see some possible modeling projects. Loved the Cletrac being used as a tug! Footage via Zeno's Warbirds. Mike
  3. Hello guys, here is my next project, an anime themed model. It's Lynette Bishop's Spitfire Mk.IX from the Strike Witches anime.
  4. I'm keen to experiment with using washes to improve the finish of my models, so I would be very grateful for any tips on which wash(es) I should try - colour and brand - and how to get the best results. The models I make are mostly large scale WWII era aircraft, though I also do some vehicles for dioramas. Many thanks in advance for any help!
  5. Hello everyone.. I just had an idea for a group build. We have all had relatives that served in the military or in civilian service, or served ourselves. Im proposing a group build celebrating those relatives and family histories or your history. I recently built a tank (trainers group build) that my grandfather trained in. I had an uncle that was in both the RN and US Navy in WW2 and Korea. So long story short is if you have a Familial connection to the equipment you wish to model, including being a passenger in some cases. Maybe they flew on H.P.Hamdens. Maybe they served on H.M.S. Repulse.
  6. Ok, so in a few weeks im going to start the Heller 1/72 C-121A and I was wondering if anyone had any advice: especially on the windows down the fuselage and how to attach them and whether i need to create my own cabin detail. Is there anything I must know about this kit?
  7. Hello, I purchased the Heller 1/72 C-121 a and I am planning on biking it in the coming weeks. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on interior detail and whether the cabin can be seen through the fuselage windows. Also is there a best method of attaching these as I have recall glue for clear parts and I'm not overly fond of it. Finally, is there anything, in general, I should know about the build? Thank you so much in advance. I apologize if this is too much to answer
  8. Hey, i know this probably has a really simple answer but i was wondering what is the best way to mask curves that follow a panel line?
  9. We have just taken delivery of a selection of Kinetic kits with more due soon. Check out the selection here! https://www.wonderlandmodels.com/brands/kinetic/
  10. Well, I finally found what I was looking for...I've had the 1/48 Classic Airframes ASW kit for some time now. I located a 1/48 Gannet AEW of unknown lineage last month and I found a 1/48 Dynavector vac-form ASW. I'm planning on building the Classic Airframes as an ASW, the AEW as is and the Dynavector kit as a COD. I'm pretty sure I can find the decals, etc that I need to complete the project. I've just got an interest in these contra rotating prop birds. Wish me Luck! Nick
  11. Fairly new here (obviously as my post count suggests) and just started my very first model since I was about 13 (over 35 years ago) an Avro Vulcan (the Airfix 1.72 Vulcan to the Sky Set bought as a Christmas Present by the wife) - now, that is proving to be quite the project and with all the filling, sanding and scribing involved I feel like i've made very little progress... So in search of instant gratification...or at the very least a model I can build, paint and finish quickly...I purchased the smaller and ostensibly easier Airfix 1.72 Vampire T.11 - an aircraft dear to my heart as the
  12. Hi all and great to look back at 2018 and the bits of plastic I stuck together, whether for Group Builds here or elsewhere, or just for fun. All are 1/72 unless noted. As I'm slowly getting into airbrushing, all of these are brush painted, except for any white finishes which are a rattle can with brush finish on top. First finish was a Revell Albatross in January for the Flying Boat GB here.

  13. I have built five WW1 aircraft dioramas over the years 2000-2016 for the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum in Ottawa Canada.This all came about by chance and luck, chance, because I had just stopped teaching woodcarving at the time due to illness and luck because my first diorama was seen online by a fellow artist who worked for the museum and asked me if my stuff was available for donation with income tax relief.Of course, I was extremely happy because I had been wondering where I would keep such a large piece in my home in fact at the time I was working on an old TV cabinet that was to bec
  14. Hi all, I have been modelling for the last couple of years now after not touching a kit since I was young. To be honest I joint a forum to learn the "New game" which i did and got lots of help but it seems as though a lot of people have left and also there isn't much content on my favourite field which is aircraft. I might be making a forum taboo by doing this but am just looking for some more inspiration I suppose. Is this a faux pas? Will I be frowned upon? Kind regards Phil
  15. Hey Folks, My 17th Mosquitocon in a row. The attendees/entries have been excellent the past couple of years. Below is a link to some of the models I have captured digitally. Let me know if you can download them alright. I have never entered anything myself, my Spitfire is not done. I hope it is ready for the local show this September. Enjoy
  16. Hi folks, I wondered if anyone could share their experience of making sure that an aircraft does not become a tail sitter. What does everyone use as nose weight - especially when space is a premium. Any advice/tips would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks Kris
  17. Hello everyone even though i have only been on Britmodeller since June Im thinking im a bit Daft since I’m proposing a Group build. I’ve mentioned the idea a few times and there seems to be some interest in the idea. So I am placing this out here to “test the waters” so to speak? Im also hoping to do this as a fun twist on accurate modeling. I am definitely looking for a more experienced member who might be able to help host this Group Build. Im also not sure if i should just set it up for best votes and praise ? Or if I should go about getting donations ? Or prizes ? Im not sure h
  18. Whilst casually browsing the WWW looking at all things Fleet Air Arm at this particular time and came across images of aircraft mounted on gun turrets, novel I thought , and here's my question. How did the said warships recover their aircraft after they had done their job? Stuart
  19. Hi all, I'm new to the group, but have looked over some of the outstanding builds that have been posted previously, and in awe at the skill levels evident! This has partly been my inspiration to have a model commissioned, by a work colleague, of the first aircraft I ever worked on in the RAF once out of training, a 54 Sqn Jaguar. I have elected to go with the 1:48 Kittyhawk kit, despite the described flaws, simply because of the availability of extra detailing sets. I've already bought the aircraft tug, avionics bay, RAF diorama set and cockpit set, and lo
  20. Hi, Finally we have the JHmodels Jigs back in stock. Current prices... small monoplane is £18, large monplane is £23, small biplane £20 large biplane £26 all plus P&P The extra large monoplane jig is available to order, current price is £35, contact us direct. Thanks, Paul
  21. Forgive my slow processing about this topic - but I have only recently realized that everyone is for the most part, building a replica of the same planes which actually existed. I have always followed the 'general rules' based upon my knowledge of the subject. However, I always took liberty with markings and camouflage. I feel that it takes away from the 'art' to keep replicating the same subject. Besides, who is to say that if I decide to build a plane with markings that has no photo history, what it actually looked like ? I would like some feedback as to the general consensus about this topi
  22. Hi, I'm fairly new to modelling aircraft. I'm getting on quite good with my Mosquito in 1/48 scale and as I approach finishing the build phase of the project I'm thinking ahead to how to weather the aircraft. As the Mosquito was built chiefly out of wood would it mean that it had smoother, cleaner surfaces than aircraft made of metal with all their panelling? Let me explain what I mean: I've read articles where modellers choose to pre-shade panel lines before putting on the finished coat. Would you do this with the wings and fuselage of the Mosquito? My second question is how to put
  23. Hi, Having delved into Britmodeller several times in the last five years and registered this is the first time I've actually inputted anything on the site. So it's a moment I have been looking forward to and one where I will not be disappointed as the site is fascinating and the help offered there is wonderful. Even though I have not inputted anything myself I have read other people's questions and answers and comments many times and these have helped me in my modelling. I was a regular modeller when a child and up to the age of sixteen, enjoying making chiefly Airfix aircraft and mi
  24. Hi All I intend to order the Spitfire 1/48 ProfiPACK from Eduard.com. I am wondering just how much lead time I need for it to get here for May. Has anyone bought from this website before? What was their delivery time to the UK?
