  1. This figure was completed alongside my 1/48 Mosquito build. It’s a figure from Barracuda Studios depicting an RAF pilot (or navigator!) in late-war garb. Casting detail is nice, although there was noticeable mold slip on the legs which was tricky to clean up due to the folds in the cloth. Paints are acrylic, mostly an assortment of Vallejo and GW. Comments and critique welcome.
  2. Special Hobby is to release a new tool 1/72nd Fairey Barracuda Mk.II/.III kit - ref.SH72306 Source: http://www.ipmsdeutschland.de/Ausstellungen/Nuernberg2016/Bilder_AT/Special_Hobby_11.htm V.P.
  3. Barracuda Studios is to re-release a 1:48 P-51D decal sheet with markings for five aircraft: 1) P-51D-20-NA "Double Trouble Two," 353rd Fighter Group, 352nd Fighter Squadron, 8th Air Force Flown by Lt. Colonel “Wild” Bill Bailey. 2) P-51D-15-NA Mustang “The Millie G,” 55th Fighter Group, 343rd Fighter Squadron, 8th Air Force Flown by Major Edward Giller. 3) P-51D-15-NA Mustang “Amorous Len III,” 357th Fighter Group, 363rd Fighter Squadron, 8th Air Force Flown by Captain Reager.

  4. I'm about to start building the Tamiya 1/48 Lancaster kit inspired by Johnny @The Spadgent build, and thought I'm not happy with the plastic pieces brought in the Tamiya kit. Was looking for some resin replacements - the better if hollowed ones - and I just stumbled upon these Barracuda sets for the Spitfire Mk.XIX Do you think they could ever pass as exhaust stacks for the Lancaster engines? Yeh, will need to get four sets of 'em, but I still prefer to do so before using those in the "Temia" kit. Thanks in "they're" advance, blokes. Cheers, Unc2
  5. Hi everyone Once my 1/72 Airfix DC3 Dakota Mk IV is finished I'll be making a start on a 1/32 Tamiya Spitfire Mk IXc. I've built the Mk XIV flavoured version of the phenomenal Tamiya Spitfire and after seeing Navy Bird's build here on this very site I've decided to bump it up on my to build list. My Spitfire Mk XIV finished as WX*V, TD240, 302 Polish Sqn, Germany 1945. For this build I will be using the resin goodies from available from Barracudacast.. I'll also utilise some bits and bobs from the Eduard Spitfire Mk IX early interior.. t
  6. FROG 1/72 Barracuda Mk.II 829 Squadron , Fleet Air Arm, HMS Victorious  Flew on the mission to Attack the German Battleship Tirpitz, 1944 This kit has been in the stash so long, I honestly can't remember when I bought it. The recent Carriers Ahoy Group Build on here offered the perfect opportunity to build this one. Work in progress link below. Let me know what you think cheers Pat
  7. Stand by your beds everyone another GB is upon us. Is it me me or does there seem to be more of them and less time to finish things ? I have gone for a real "Stash Queen" ie it's been hanging around for years, no doubt loosing bits every time it's been moved. However all is not lost as I have another one that should supply any missing parts. A couple of bits have been glues together but well below the 25% allowed. I'm going for the Tirpitz version Good luck everyone cheers Pat
  8. Hi all, I recently picked up this kit and thought I'd share my progress on BM Obligatory sprue shot Before I begin is there are faults or problems in this kit that should know about before I start? -Cam
  9. Barracuda Crew Members - Standing 1:72 CMK I have to confess that this set of crew members for Special Hobby's rather excellent Fairey Barracuda dropped onto my door mat some time ago. For some reason they were put to one side and subsequently forgotten about. Thanks to Mike and his accursed spreadsheet, however, I have been prodded into bringing you this review As per the title, the set includes three crew members, all in the standing position. This means you just need a section of flight deck and you have an interesting diorama in which to display you
  10. This is going to be a slow build, because I really want to get it right. Based on the Special Hobby 1/48 Barracuda, I am planning to build this aircraft: It is a Fairey Barracuda Mark III, PM 933 / N6L, of 810 NAS, and it will be depicted as it was when flying from RAF Beccles in Spring 1945 on anti-E-Boat patrols off Holland and Belgium; I was electrified to see that this very airframe is one of the profiles in the Barracuda From The Cockpit book - but note how battered the nose is, in particular. This is a weary veteran! The photo above was actually taken a couple of months later (thou
  11. Avis is to release soon a 1/72nd EADS Barracuda UAV kit - ref. BX72029 Source: http://hobbyterra.com/product/eads-barracuda-uav-avis-72029.html Box art V.P.
  12. Barracuda Mk. II "Home Fleet" 1:72 Special Hobby The Fairey Barracuda was an all-metal torpedo/dive bomber, designed to replace its Fairey stablemates, the Swordfish and the Albacore. Although vastly more modern than the aforementioned aircraft, the ungainly Barracuda had a mixed service career. It achieved some fame for the part it played in the successful attack on the German battleship Tirpitz in April 1944, but when deployed to the Pacific theatre, the high temperatures and high altitude requirement were not a good match for the Barracuda's abilities
  13. We have the excellent looking Special Hobby 1/72 Barracuda back in stock now (well, for nearly a week now!). We had people back order this one but no one has bought it since we restocked, we'll have to reconsider the back order service if this keeps happening. Anyway here it is - http://www.mjwmodels.co.uk/sh72306--172-fairey-barracuda-mkii-home-fleet-5296-p.asp thanks Mike
  14. Hi everyone. My Tamiya 1/32 Spitfire Mk XVIe built as TD240, 302 Sqn (Polish) Germany 1945. I used the rather brilliant after market sets from Barracuda, with additional detail added using Airscale decal sets. I did a little scratch building in the cockpit by adding wires and valves as well as adding some more detail to the engine. Those eagle eyed amongst you will see that I added Rolls Royce rocker cover logos, I know that these are wrong as the motor was built under licence by Packard,but it was too late to try and remove them. The kit was painted with Tamiya acrylics with all the round
  15. Kit manufacturer: Hasegawa (Kit no. E26) Scale: 1/72 Type: B-26C Marauder Extras used: Eduard Photoetch Zoom Set Paints and colours used: Alclad, Gunze, Tamiya This particular Marauder - "Barracuda" belonged to 495th Bomb Squadron, 344 Bomb Group. Any comments appreciated Best regards Rune Haugen
  16. Hi, From deep archive shelf - Fairey Swordfish Mk I and Fairey Barracuda. Both kits by Frog (or rather Novo). Both those Faireys nemes are of fishies. I made them about 1992-3. Swordfish was my first ever build with riging. Swordfish is from 700 Sq. FAA, HMS Malaya, Mediterranean Sea 1941. In some sources I found that she should wear letter "M" on side - some others were not saying this. I made with letter... Here she is: Barracuda Mk II from 812 Squadron HMS Vengeance, Pacific, 1945 (decals by ea
  17. After the Leopard, time for an aircraft, now you can never have enough spitfires, so it's spitfire time. The lovely tamiya kit, but rather than the Mk IX wanted to be slightly different, and not do an Ocean Grey / Green one. I may have one or two extras for this, oh all right, maybee 6 or 7...... Work starts as expected with the cockpit - aluminium for the most part, but interior grey green ( Agama Red Top - Alcohol based paint ) for the main section of the cockpit The rest of the day was spent with the Instrument panel, and co
  18. Finished today, this is the Tamiya 1/32nd Spitfire VIII kit with extras from Barracuda, Eduard, Master, Quickboost and Radub. Constructed as one of 152 Sqdn's mounts from Burma in late 1944. Painted mainly with Gunze Aqueous paints, and weathered with pastels and oils. Mostly loved this kit, but the Engine cowlings are a pain ( might be due to the AM rocker covers), and some of the swappable parts are basically pointless. Also you are left with holes to fit the slipper tank. I am happy how it's turned out though. Build Thread is a
  19. Was'on For my next build I will be tackling Hasegawa's Hawker Typhoon. First order of business was to remove the cockpit coaming as per the Barracuda resin instructions... Before I started this build I was aware of fit issues with the cockpit inserts and after a search of the internet it became apparent that the easiest way of correcting the problem was to glue the inserts to the fuselage sides ensuring that you have a good fit, this will however leave a gap between the fuselage half's that will need filling... Well that's all I've managed this evening. See you dreckly Yours a
