  1. Amodel is to release a 1/144th Grumman UF-1 Albatros kit - ref. 1424 Source: https://www.aviationmegastore.com/grumman-uf1-albatros-amdl14424-a-model-amdl1424-aircraft-scale-modelling/product/?action=prodinfo&art=79900 Box art V.P.
  2. D.H. 60T Moth 1:72 Amodel First flown nearly 90 years ago, the DH-60 Moth series of 2 seat biplanes were a great success and were widely used by civil clubs in the inter war period. By the late 1920's almost 85% of aircraft used by UK flying clubs were DH-60's of one type or another. It was developed though several versions, the most notable being the DH-60G Gypsy Moth, and the DH-60M 'Metal Moth' where the wooden 'skeleton' of the fuselage structure was replaced by a metal one. Various engines were used such as the Genet, Cirrus, and Gypsy, and this would often prefix the name of th
  3. Hello all, I’ve decided to have a go at another large Russian aircraft as that is my passion and thought I’d post it as a work in progress. The Il-38 has undergone an upgrade which added the new sensor array (BERKUT) atop the fuselage, new avionics and all topped off with a new colour scheme. The overall colour seems to be Aubergine/French blue/ USN WW2 dark blue cross, don’t know how that’s going to pan out. The photo shows the aircraft I will try to model. The Amodel kit comes with the fuselage and main wings moulded in glass fibre, the rest in (short run) plastic. A few weeks ago
  4. Recent completion for a GB elsewhere. The F-4F was the mainstay fighter for the US Navy (and Marines) in the early phase of the war in the Pacific. When faced with the lack of suitable airfields in places like the Solomons, the approach the Japanese used by employing floatplanes was investigated and one single F-4F-3 was converted to a floatplane for testing. The floats and reinforcement knocked a fair bit of performance off of what the F-4F had. If it wasn't for the effective Seabees (CB - construction batallions) managing to rapidly roll out airstrips, this m
  5. Hello all, Just finished this one after leaving it alone for a month because of a catastrophic liquid glue spill! In truth it nearly went in the bin, but then I decided to use it as a weathering practise piece. The kit is short run injection but has quite a lot of detail which is typical of Amodel, its even got the fuel tanks. It took quite a bit of filler around the bomb bay area to bung up the cracks, but otherwise it wasn’t too stressful a build. (until I flung the glue pot at it anyway) The aircraft depicted is from the 328 AR of the VVS circa 1945. Around 390 of this later version wi
  6. Welcome! I'm starting my workshop with another model KSR-5 "Raduga" (AS-6 "Kingfish") in 1:72 scale from AMODEL, it won't be crazy. Model started years ago, a little kicked, but it happens when you learn. But that was only thanks to my wife, who told me to get my models in order and tidy up the studio. Without any disguise I took the first model whose box was already a little bit shabby. After opening the box I found such a state.
  7. Hi All. Here is my latest completed model the AModel Caravelle 10R in Transeuropa livery. Cheers Ray
  8. With the Supermarine 224 finished and the Dewotine D510 at the painting stage, I think I might have time for least another entry. So I have started an Amodel Hawker Fury that I have in the stash. This is a 'short run' kit that offers the wheel spats for the Mk II and nice surface detail, but is probably a harder build than the Matchbox kit I first built in the summer of 1973 after my First Year Uni exams. The Mark II Fury was an upgrade to the original Fury bought by the RAF. It had a more powerful Kestrel engine, wheel spats and increased fuel tankage which gave it a top speed of 22
  9. Soviet long range interceptor, from the mid-50's. Not really a well known type I suppose - but a cool looking plane nevertheless. There were also reconnaissance variants derived from this type. The kit is A Model Yak-25K/S: The box is quite full and doesn't look to be original. Plenty of stuff to work with. The plastic is soft, almost rubbery. Very dirty and has lot's of cleaning to do... Details are soft at best. Pane
  10. Here is my recently completed Shavrov SH-2 Amphibian in 1/72 by Amodel. A limited run kit with the usual problems that had to be tamed. The subject was enhanced with the use of the PE set from NH Detail and a replacement engine from Pavla. The are of concern in this case was the central struts that had to be corrected and the manufacture of a small wind pump. Painted using Colourcoats enamel paints and a mixture of kit & DIY decals. Uschi line used for the control lines. As a new thing for me, I thought I'd make a small dio for the subject; a slipway with a bit of 'water', some scenic

  13. Yak-52 as used by ETPS built from the Amodel kit and home made decals. Steve
  14. The K-5 aircraft were the basis of the USSR's civilian passenger fleet in the 1930s. Sometimes they were used as agitation, sanitary, transport or even military transport. This USSR L-607 was mobilized in 1939. This machine was used during the Soviet-Finnish conflict to transport ammunition and evacuate the wounded. During the service in the VVS RKKA over the civilian registration numbers were painted red stars.
  15. Hi all Here's my rendition of this charming aircraft using the A model kit. The plastic is quite hard and broke about six of my. 35 mm drills drilling the rigging holes. Goes together quite well and turned out an enjoyable build. I have added lap belts to the seats along with Milliput cushions. The front control stick has been placed in the Stowed position on the stb side of the forward cockpit. Fuel line from lead wire and photo Etch aileron, elevator and Rudder actuator points added. Also added exhaust straps from photo Etch fret. Rigged with invisible thread and brush p
  16. This was my long awaited Christmas present to myself, and I intended to start it straight away (as you do!), but circumstances meant it had to wait. However, the large awkward shaped box didn't fit into the stash very well, so the time has come to finally start. What's in the box then? A one piece main section of fuselage and two wings that are of a plastic coated fibreglass construction, 13 plastic sprues, a small set of photo etched parts and a decal sheet for an Orel Avia plane. Going by my normal build speed, this could be a long haul.... Dave

  18. The de Havilland Vampire has always been my favourite early jet. First flown in September 1943 (5 months before the Soviet La-7, half a year before the Japanese Ki-102 and 15 months before the He 162) she should be called a wartime design. And if she wasn’t British she would be a true WW2 fighter – unfortunately the RAF had huge numbers of already proven „430+ mph” fighters to list just the Mustang, Tempest and Griffon-Spitfires, while development of another British jet – the Meteor – was six months ahead of the „crab”. Thus the plywood-clad twin-boom marvel became the Cold War era fighter. F
  19. I just joined this community yesterday, after lurking about for many years. I thought I'd go ahead and try posting some photos of my latest completion. I like odd aircraft, and this one certainly qualifies. The kit had pleasantly good fit, and only a few issues to address. The clear parts were reasonable clear, and distortion-free, but I still did some polishing on them. I'm glad to finally complete a model, and have another unusual subject on the shelf.
  20. AviS is to release a 1/72nd Lee-Richards annular monoplane No.3 kit - ref. BX72036 3D renders V.P.
  21. This kit somehow found its way into my car when I was at Modelkraft Model Show at the weekend. I had never heard of this type but looks rather interesting. First some 'fluff'. The Russian Shavrov SH-2 was an amphibian aircraft in a sesquiplane design that was developed in the 1930's for use as a trainer, fishery protection, patrol and an ambulance. The SH-2 was made primarily of wood and was powered by Shvetsov M-11L 5-cylinder air-cooled radial engine, driving a 2-bladed propeller that was capable of producing 100 hp. Being an amphibian, the SH-2 was fitted with wheels that could be
  22. My take on Amodel's Sud Aviation Caravelle III finished off in the markings of VIASA. I enjoyed the build although the undercarriage was an absolute nightmare to put together. Wings fences were made from thin plastic sheet as this boxing didn't come with photo-etched parts. (Luckily I had Amodel's 10-R version to hand, so their parts were used as templates). Classic Airlines decal sheet (CA144-419) was used and it will come as no surprise that they were beautifully printed and performed flawlessly. (It does give you the option to paint the tail and this is the route I t
