  1. think a bit like the "Flower duet" from Lakmé but with aeroplanes. Hello everyone and welcome to my project. It was a simple project at first but then it grew in scope and then the problems begun and the learning curve was steeper than expected and... but lets take things from the beginning. An old friend of mine was moving with his family into a smaller apartment so he shed off all his old 1/72 kits in the process and they ended up lurking under my then bench. I'm talking really horrible ancient kits like the Airfix He177 Greif (or more aptly 'grief') and the like (seriously now that kit taught me a lot but there was no way I could salvage that big lump of light blue plastic). But other kits were not so bad and some were even maybe appealing. Now 'appealing' as we all know is a strange term. In my case it was something about the history, or the colours, or the shape. So I thought I would build the Heller Potez 631: I convinced myself the decals were aged and deteriorating so I bought a decal sheet by Carpena / Colorado. (https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/CA72041) Then I had the idea of trying a resin engine for the first time. I wasn't going to open any cowlings heaven forbid, no! But I thought this would be a good time to try. So I got two of Neomega's Gnome-Rhone GR-14M4/M5/K/N (https://www.neomega-resin.com/gnome-rhone-gr-14m4m5kn-172nd-679-p.asp) And as for paint, I got myself a HATAKA french camo set (http://hataka-hobby.com/products/early-ww2-french-air-force-paint-set/) Right. So now I had everything I needed. Right? Wrong. I though that since I got the french paint set it would be a good idea to do another french WW2 aircraft in parallel. You know, during the dead time, while waiting for the glue to set, while waiting for the paint to dry etc. So i decided to build the Smer 1/72 Bloch MB.152 on the side. But I couldn't just leave it at that, nooooo. I thought I'd try replacing the kit's canopy, windshield etc with vacform transparencies. Also for the first time. And to top it off, besides the almost obligatory decal sheet (https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/PSL72320) I got me a photo etched parts set from Brengun NOT designed for the Smer kit (https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/BRL72090)! What could possibly go wrong?
  2. Having failed to find my TSR2 kit (1965 the decision was taken to scrap it !) I had a look through the stash to see what I had already (Always a good idea) and found I had the Smer release of the Heller Bloch MB.152 which was first released in 1965. Picture from Scalemates First glance shows the decals missing, so ill pop a wanted request on the wanted bit here on BM. cheers Pat
  3. Now, I'm presenting you a model for this week. It's a Bloch MB152 aircraft model, Smer, or Heller. I note that the cabin glass is not finely glued, but is only fixed with a white glue. The complete glass in the box was full of flashes, and the middle part of the cabin lid and the windshield were quite twisted. After cleaning the flush with the same, I tried to fix the lid by heating, but poorly. Overall, I am happy that the model looks in the shelf. Here's the picture.
