  1. Brengun is to release a 1/144Bell P-39K Airacobra kit - ref. BRP144011 Source: https://www.facebook.com/oxygino3dart/photos/a.205098073155516/726743720990946/?type=3&theater Box art V.P.
  2. "I ask you to look at the map of Europe today and see if you can suggest any way in which we could win this war if we entered it. Suppose we had a large army in America, trained and equipped. Where would we send it to fight? The campaigns of the war show only too clearly how difficult it is to force a landing, or to maintain an army, on a hostile coast. "Suppose we took our Navy from the Pacific and used it to convoy British shipping. That would not win the war for England. It would, at best, permit her to exist under the constant bombing of the German air fleet. Suppose we had an air force that we could send to Europe. Where could it operate? Some of our squadrons might be based in the British Isles, but it is physically impossible to base enough aircraft in the British Isles alone to equal in strength the aircraft that can be based on the continent of Europe. "I have asked these questions on the supposition that we had in existence an army and an air force large enough and well enough equipped to send to Europe; and that we would dare to remove our Navy from the Pacific. Even on this basis, I do not see how we could invade the continent of Europe successfully as long as all of that continent and most of Asia is under Axis domination." -- Charles Lindbergh, "America First", 23 April 1941 "[N]othing is more certain that every trace of Hitler's footsteps, every stain of his infected, corroding fingers will be sponged and purged and, if need be, blasted from the surface of the earth." -- Winston Churchill, "Speech to the Allied Delegates", 12 June 1941 "You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you." -- General Dwight Eisenhower, 6 June 1944 On 9 June 1944, Generalfeldmarschall Erwin Rommel ordered General der Panzertruppe Leo Geyr von Schweppenburg, commander of Panzergruppe West, the main armoured reserve and primary striking force of the Heer in Normandy, to plan a counterattack that would sweep the Allied landing back into the sea. One of Germany's leading prewar armoured theorists, Geyr von Schweppenburg had commanded a panzer division in the invasion of Poland, and panzer corps in both the fighting in France and in Russia. Though a very experienced and successful officer, he had notably never fought a battle against the Western Allies after 1940. The massive volume of radio traffic required to coordinate a corps-level attack did not escape British notice. ULTRA decrypts, translated very nearly in real time, reached the 2nd Tactical Air Force by early the next morning. 124 Typhoon Wing, 139 Mitchell Wing, and four squadrons of Spitfires drawn from both ADGB and 84 Group were ordered to put on a maximum effort strike on the Chateau de la Caine, not far from Caen. Shortly after 2100, as the staff officers of Panzergruppe West were sitting down to eat dinner in the chateau, they heard air raid sirens and rushed out to see what was happening. As they stood spellbound, seventeen Typhoons from 247 and 181 Squadrons each salvoed off eight rockets apiece. As the Typhoons veered away, the Mitchells arrived. Bombing from 12,000 feet in cells of six aircraft, the Mitchells dropped over five hundred 500lb bombs in the target area. Then the second wave of Typhoons swooped in, blasting anything left standing. The raid was a total success. Geyr von Schweppenburg was seriously wounded. His chief of staff and every other staff officer save one were killed. Plans for a counteroffensive had to be totally shelved, and the units assigned to Geyr von Schweppenburg were transferred to the control of the ardent Nazi "Sepp" Dietrich, one of the Party's "alter kampfer" who had risen to high rank in the Waffen-SS owing to his ties to Hitler and was promoted far beyond his competence. The Heer never succeeded in launching a corps-level counterattack in the Anglo-Canadian sector during the summer of 1944. I will be building Hawker Typhoon MN317/ZY-B "China British", of 247 (China British) Squadron. On this op, it was flown by F/Sgt John Alan Dyce "Jack" Meechan DFC AFM from Edinburgh, who survived the war (and at least one Typhoon crash). As late as 1953, he was still a Flight Sergeant, though rather chunkier, by then delivering new Canadair Sabres to the RAF. He died in 2001. Happily, we have a photo of MN317 taken shortly before the op, so we know pretty much what she looked like: She had the three-bladed prop, and apparently the earlier tailplanes so prone to just plumb falling off the aircraft, a perennial and never-fully-resolved problem with the Tiffie, poor old dear. I'm using the Brengun kit for this, both because it's suited perfectly for building a mid-production Typhoon, and because dimensionally, I think it's a bit better than the Airfix kit, being appropriately beefier and so forth. Also, I have about a jillion of them, thanks to mon frere d'autre mere @Stew Dapple, who sent me approximately five hundred of the Brengun kits as a birthday present a while back. You see Stew, I do sometimes build them! The Brengun is in fact my preferred Typhoon kit (Stew's so thoughtful!), but it's not without issues. In fact, it's kind of a bitch to put together. For instance, on the cardoor versions, which this one is mercifully not, the canopy simply doesn't fit, and you really need to go and buy the vacform one Brengun sells if you want a hope in hell of getting it on without it looking absurd. And that's just rewarding bad behaviour! Additionally, the instructions are crude, the cockpit assembly is too wide and needs sanding, the landing gear bays are too tall and need so much sanding that I thought I was going to die from ingesting about a pound of styrene shavings, there's flash everywhere, etc etc etc. The point is, if you want your Typhoon to look big and butch, as it should, you'll suffer and build the Brengun. It doesn't mean you can't complain, lord knows I'm going to. But it's the best of what's out there in the only scale that matters. Here's where we are now. I've started on the wheel bays and the guts of the intake, as well as the seat and IP. You know you're in for a good time when you need to use filler on the seat. Everything so far has involved a certain amount of sanding, fettling, micro-chiseling, and judicious and injudicious swearing, especially when for a few hot minutes it looked like I'd lost the windscreen and vile imprecations flowed freely from my lips.

  6. AGM-114 Hellfire (BRL32037) 1:32 Brengun The AGM-114 Hellfire missile is an air-launched missile for destroying ground-based targets with a high level of precision. They are carried most famously by the AH-64 Apache as well as drones and other slow-moving aircraft, and are used extensively for destroying enemy bunkers and compounds in the Middle East, despite its original mission as a tank buster. They are fire-and-forget and because of their relatively low explosive yield when compared to a standard JDAM they have a lower collateral damage likelihood. They are frequently carried in "packs" of four on one pylon because of their light weight, giving any aircraft a substantial capacity to inflict damage. The Kit The set arrives in a cardboard box that is sealed by the label, and inside is a ziplok bag of resin parts, a sheet of stencil decals, a small fret of Photo-Etch (PE) and an instruction sheet with five steps plus painting guide. There are ten casting blocks, the majority of which are in grey resin, but two are in clear resin and hold the clear seeker heads for each of the eight missiles included in the set. Each missile has the choice of a protective yellow FOD guard or the clear seeker head, PE fins front and aft, a toroidal exhaust port and a separate resin attachment lug. The launch rails are made up from a pre-moulded pair that have the pylon attachment points moulded into the centre, two stanchions that project downward and two more rails for the lower level. To these are added command umbilicals, PE locking arms and rear skin, plus resin attachment lugs. When the launch rails are completed, you can attach up to four missiles to each one, allowing you to house the full complement on the two rails supplied. Some of the decals are called out during construction, but the balance are shown in the final section of the instructions, and the overall colour is mentioned briefly at the beginning as black. Conclusion This set is excellent value for money, highly detailed, and you get everything you need barring paint and glue. Either missiles and two rail packs for your large scale project for a very reasonable price. Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of

  14. To all who likes to try this!! The Zvezda C-130 hasn’t yet a dedicated flap conversion set and as had the Attack squadron one already in the stash I decided to try this ... At first I was fondling around with the Zvezda plastic and measured the thickness of the wing and after some more measuring I thought it could work out and it did.. First the wing shape at the underside had a concave shape in the wing and at first I thought that would be correct but after some comparisons elsewhere and some looks on the Bring it! resin aftermarket producer Facebook page I came to the conclusion that it was wrong.. The perfect Hercules has flaws The inner flaps need rescribing as they are wrongly shaped.. I also think that the panel lines for the flaps are a little bland and could be more pronounced. The flaps aren’t concave but they should be flat/straight..and there the resin flaps came in as they are pretty correctly shaped.. Nevertheless this Hercules is still to be regarded as the best rendition in my opinion as I had them all. If you leave out the Zvezda kit my second to love Hercules is the Airfix C-130 as it has a much better overall appearance regarding the Italeri....enough kit bashing now I followed the instructions for the Italeri Hercules cutouts generally only in order to get it fitted I had to thin down the wings considerably and this is not for the faintharded! Not only I had to thin the wings but I also did thinning on the resin as well as it some points it is quite thick. The outboard flaps got a treatment of warm running tap water in order to push out the more concave shape, not much but I did got a better fit in doing that... Now some pictures.. The picture above shows you the incorrect panel linesfor the flaps.. Even the panel lines for the wingroot fairing is way outboard which it shouldn’t be ...it should be nearer to the fuselage..

  18. Dear fellow Britmodellers, I built Brengun's Yak-1 "Aces" boxing with markings for Mikhail Dmitrievich Baranov's "Red 1", flown in summer 1942 with 183.IAP. The kit is a multi-media affair, with plastic, etch and resin parts. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, weathered with artists oils from Winsor & Newton. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. # Thank yo for your interest in this topic. A detailled build review will appear in an upcoming edition of Scale Aviation Modeller International. Best greetings from Vienna, Roman

  21. I tripped across this kit looking for carrier deck parts and thought it would be a unique build. Did some reading up on the drone and found out an interest combat proven history in recent conflicts. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northrop_Grumman_MQ-8_Fire_Scout This Brengun kit in 1/48th on first look has nice surface detail it will take some careful cutting to get the parts off the carrier sprune. Plans are very straight forward should be a good build I havent done a kit like this in a non traditional format.
  22. Dear all, Please find below some images of my recently finished SAMI review kit of the Vought-Sikorsky VS-300. The VS-300 was the first practical US-designed helicopter and pioneered the now familiar lay-out of a main rotor and small tail rotor. The kit is a reissue by Brengun of the Extratech multi-media kit. The review article will appear in one of the upcoming issues of SAMI. Peter

  25. Art Chesters JEEP brengun 1/48 resin kit the chester jeep was built for the 1932 national air races in the USA, it raced up until the 1948 cleveland air races and unlike alot of racing planes of that era it still survives. the brengun kit is lovely, goes together really well, the only problem i had was the vacform canopy, but that might have been me and my 'love' of vac form canopies. i have taken some photos next to a airfix spitfire PR19, just so you get an idea how small this plane really is. thank you for looking.
