  2. Rummaging through my attic and found a very old MAP set of Albatros plans, with nothing better to do I went through the whole pack, all the B,C and D series, of all of them I liked the look of the C IX it’s essentially a two seat D series with ( for the time) a very unconventional wing arrangement. The plans. Not having access to a photocopier any more and with time in my hands I decided to draw up some 1/48 sketches my hand, these will be my working drawings.
  3. This is my second completed kit of the year, the Albatross D.II by Eduard. I have built quite a few of their WWI kits and I have to say I this they are great. This was my first attempt at a wood grain finish on the fuselage and I think it came out nicely. I added Eduard seatbelts and used Uschi's high stretch elastic rigging thread. If not for this thread I think I would have thrown in the towel on building WWI aircraft long ago. Also, I used Gas Patch anchors for the rigging but I am not happy with the results but it was my own fault - I should have thought out the order of attaching the

  6. Hi all and here's my first finish of 2018, built for the Flying Boats GB here. This is Revell's 1989 boxing of Monogram's 1957 issue Grumman Hu-16 Albatross finished in US Coastguard markings for S/N 7240. According to the Coastguard Aviation Association, S/n 7240 began it's career on 25th August 1961 based out of San Diego before moving to a number of different bases. She was detatched to NAS Quonset Point for 4 months in 1967 and would have worn the scheme of that time with a hi-vis orange nose. (I went for the later scheme she wore) After 2 years in storage at Davis Monthan
  7. Hi all and here's my one, Revell's gloriously rivetting Grumman Albatross. I got this many years ago from one of the 2nd hand trade stands at Telford. Markings will be for a US Coastguard version Good luck with your builds! Cheers, Dermot

  9. Hello! This is the Amodel Albatross which I finished this week. The triphibian was equipped with skis so It could land on snow more than six inches deep, in case you were curious. All brush painted with humbrol mainly, some Vallejo along the way. I have an airbrush now and just learning on it - would have made quite a lot of this a bit easier I suspect! For various reasons I spent a good deal of time detailing the interior, although predictably little of it can be seen even with the door posed open!
  10. My third foray back into model planes continues with WW1 fighters after my Revell 1:72 Sopwith Camel and Fokker D VII (posted on RFI) I have to say that the colours of these aircraft are really striking and make me want to build many more. Here is my Albatross D III as flown by Werner Voss, Jasta 2 Boelcke, Juni 1917. Hope you enjoy the pictures. :-)
  11. This is the Eduard 1/72 L39 Albatros from the 'around the world' two-kit boxing. Instead of kit decals, I have used a set by Kopro to make this specially marked Hungarian Air Force example from 2008 called 'Capeti II'. The decals are very thin and rather difficult to manage, and the kit - though it looks great in the box - is surprisingly poor in terms of fit. In the end though, it looks like an L39; so anyway here it is.
  12. Hello, I just finished the Trumpeter 1/48 Italian Air Force Grumman Hu-16 Albatross . I like this plane so I added a lot of features like engines, sound and lights. I had a lot to rework because nothing was "italian", but just a base version with italian decals (wrong and lacking). I had to add or modify a lot of antennas and other details and add or build lacking decals. I hope you like it.

  13. Hi all,with not a lot going on after the two Thunderbolt,s are finished I fancied a change of era so inspired and jealous by my eldest getting a box full of unbuilt WW1 biplanes from his wifes Grandad(OK he did give me Matchbox's Siskin) I got these two from King Kit at a fiver the Pair,I like to buy older boxing as the molds tend to be better(these two are still current releases).The obvious risk are the decals which due to the kits being fully sealed are in tip top condition so I am building the all red Albatross of Manfred von Richthoven and Goering's all white Fokker.Here's the box and
  14. Following in the long modelling tradition of never finishing one build before starting another. My son Dylan and I are finally getting our collective finger out and joining this GB, without having completed our previous builds ! We shall be trying to form the resemblance of an Albatross from the misformed, salmon pink shaped blobs provided by Glencoe models. The aircraft itself was Austria- Hungary's own version and the was good enough not to need updating as the German one did for later marks. We have been given permission to both build one of these each but for different WW1 Austria-Hun
  15. Grumman HU-16A Albatross Trumpeter 1:48 History The Grumman HU-16 Albatross is a large twin-radial engine amphibious flying boat that was used by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Coast Guard, primarily as a search and rescue and combat search and rescue aircraft. Inspired by the performance of the Grumman Goose during WWII, the U.S. Navy solicited Grumman to design a significantly larger amphibian with longer range. In 1944, Grumman submitted and won approval of its design G-64, to be named "Albatross," with accommodation for a crew of four, and a cabin capacity of 10 p
  16. Grumman Albatross correction set AlleyCat 1:48 The release of the 1:48 Grumman Albatross by Trumpeter was a very welcome and pleasant surprise and whilst the majority of the kit was nicely done the nose section and the distinctive chines wasn’t quite correct shape wise. To remedy this, AlleyCat have released this correction set, which consists of a completely new nose section, canopy and overhead console. Packaged in a plain sturdy cardboard box the dark grey resin parts are pretty well protected with poly chips and the clear resin canopy is in a separate zip-lock bag to prevent scr
  17. Last September during my trip to Arizona, I stumbled upon Marsh Aviation who re-built Trackers as Turbo Trackers for various air forces and navies around the world, not to mention the US Forest Service. Being of the opinion that the worst they could say was no, I knocked on the office door and asked if I could take a look around. They said yes and left me to wander around the yard at my own pace, although they did give me two pieces of advice: 1. Don't step over the yellow line, that takes you onto the active airfield and you'll probably get chewed up or run over 2. Don't pick up any of the
