  1. This is an old Revell model. I'm very pleased with how it turned out in the end. They said only aftermarket. Here's the picture.
  2. Hi All! I built another quarantined plane. Eastern Expres/TOKO. Completed in a week. Pleasant viewing!
  3. Based on the Italeri kit for the Bell OH-13S, I build the H-13E used in Korea almost exclusively for MedEvac applications. For this purpose, the engine and tank had to be modified, the entire grid frame shortened, baffles attached to the tail fin, the instrumentation modified and of course the distinctive stretchers with the protective hoods on the outriggers had to be built. Also the engine had to be modified, because early models were not equipped with Lycomings, let alone turbo engines. After all a wild mix comprising of a detail set from CMK, a small set of etched p

  5. Hi folk's,I was spending the last of my Christmas money on a couple of thing's on King Kit and had just enough left to cover a last build for this GB(yes definitely the last) I've not built or even seen this little kit but a look at a couple of on line reviews shows it to be a decent enough build so this replaces the Twin Otter which sadly failed.
  6. Does anybody know of any decals for the Defence Helicopter Flying School Griffin HT1 1/72 scale. Cant seem to find anything on the interweb Rodders
  7. X-1 Mach Buster (8079) 1:48 Eduard Bell built the X-1 as their attempt at breaking the elusive sound barrier as it was known then, although it was having problems with control at high mach numbers due to the lack of surface area on the elevators. After agreeing to share data with the Miles company that were developing the superior Miles M.52, the US reneged on the deal after Miles had naively given their data over, after which the Bell engineers fitted an all moving elevator to their design, while the British government cancelled the Miles project. This left the
  8. X-1 Updgrade Set (48908) 1:48 Eduard If you feel that the detail on your X-1 could be improved, Eduard have thought of that and released this handy upgrade set that will do just that. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between. The set contains parts for the cockpit in the form of additional panels behind the pilot, rudder pedals, and a complete replacement for the aft section of the left s
  9. Hello again, I'd like to participate with this other Huey I'm making. Being an Italeri, my expectations weren't too high (my expectations from my own skills aren't high either). But... Good things of the kit The clear parts were thick and shiny enough not to need polishing. Clears parts fitted perfectly except for a few inconsecuential gaps. The main halves of the fuselage fitted perfectly, along with all major parts. Bad things: Having the doors closed would've required too much work, unnecessarily. A lot of guess

  14. Bell OH-58D "Kiowa" Revell 1:72 The Bell OH-58 Kiowa is a military version of the successful Bell 206A Jet Ranger helicopter. Bell developed this back in 1960 in response to a US Navy requirement (On behalf of the Army) for a Light Observation Helicopter. The aircraft was originally rejected on favour of the Hughes OH-6. In 1967 the US Army reopened the helicopter competition as Hughes could not fulfil it's contractual obligations. Bell resubmitted their helicopter with some changes which included more cabin space. Bell underbid Hughes to win the contract. In following with US Army trad
  15. Following Hughes OH-6A presented here on April, a new Vietnam aeroscout is coming from my bench. This mid ‘80s 1/48 scale model by Esci is pretty good although its age. I got a lot of work inside the cockpit, none the less outside, with an Allison engine taken from the CMK resin set and modified for a Bell machine. I used Testors enamel colors with artistic oils and chalks as weathering. As reported in Print Scale decals sheet, the example 68-16761 (callsign 'Inferno 761') of Casper Platoon is taken in 1970, just few months after delivery, so that I chose a semi-matt finishing. Following
  16. Bell AH-1W SuperCobra Revell 1:48 Most modellers will instantly recognise the Bell AH-1 Cobra Attack Helicopter. The AH-1 was the first production Gunship or Attack Helicopter to see service. During the Vietnam war the US Army began to see the need for armed helicopter to escort its unarmed UH-1 Hueys into combat. In parallel to this Bell Helicopters had been investigating helicopter gunships as early as the late 1950s. In 1962 Bell displayed a mock up concept to the US Army. This Helicopter featured a 20mm gun pod, and a ball turret mounted grenade launcher. It was felt by the Army t

  19. Hi Everyone, With 2 out of my 3 part built kits nearly finished now, I am picking kits out of my stash to work on while I am off work.

  20. Hi, A small break in Japanese series. More close into the mainstream. Bell piston fighters of WWII: P39L Airacobra and P63C3 Kingcobra, Heller and Toko (short run), respectively. Both in 1/72. Airacobra is in markings of 98 sq. 81 Fighter Gr USAF, Tunis 1943 Kingcobra is from unknown (to me) unit of VVS, likely 1944. Comments welcome Regards Jerzy-Wojtek Airacobra: And Kingcobra:
  21. Bell AH-1G Cobra 'Marines' Special Hobby 1:72 The US Air Force started to use helicopters early in the Vietnam War as offensive platforms. Following a failed attempt to provide a dedicated attack helicopter in the guise of the Model 207 Sioux Scout in the early ‘60’s, Bell independently invested $1m into a new helicopter using some of the technology of the infamous UH-1 Iroquois, or more affectionately known ‘Huey’. This was in spite of the fact that the Army was more interested in a Lockheed venture with the AH-56 Cheyenne in response to Bells previous failure, however that didn’t come
