  1. Good day all, Today I have for inspection a modified version of the old Airfix Bristol Bulldog. While both of the kit provided decal schemes, an RAF and a Swedish option, are quite nice, I decided I wanted to build something a little different after learning that the Nakajima Aircraft company license-produced 2 Bulldogs with slight modifications. In the case of the second machine, a cowl ring was fitted, along with wheel spats and a new exhaust system. I took the cowl ring from a Monogram F11, the prop from a Matchbox Fury, and the wheel spats from an AModel Fury II to modify the k
  2. Finally got started on my contribution, the venerable Bristol Bulldog, for some reason I have 3 although a few parts are missing so in reality there's enough to do 2. This one will be largely OOB as I am in respite after my Contrail Botha! The kits... Decided to open the blister pack but use the decals from the later boxed version as they are the only ones in usable condition. Here's what you get.. Noticed the poor pilot is missing a leg and some engine cowl bits have broken off and gone missing so will raid one of the other kits for replacements.
  3. Just seen on Takoms facebook page; I know we have a 432 post but this is so different from the standard APC I think it deserves its own thread Julien
  4. Hi - Hoping someone can help out here I am building the Airfix Bristol Bulldog and am not sure about the blue used in the roundels on the decal sheet. It seems that some interwar roundels may have had a paler blue than the "identification blue" normally used. I also know that film used widely at the time made the blues come out very pale in black and white photos which muddies the waters. The decals supplied seem to be a bit too pale. This hasn't been helped by seeing the same Airfix decal sheet in a kit review with the standard blue used. So I am not
  5. No. this is not the title of a previously unknown Christmas album by the Who, but a new venture for me. I was given a kit for Christmas by my dear wife, and have decided that, since it is a relatively simple build with not that many parts, I should be able to build it fairly fast. Unlike all my other builds, I do not intend to super-detail anything, or add any after-market parts to it, other than the set of masks I already have, and probably some Airscale instruments to pep up the very visible cockpit. Oh, and a fair amount nose weight, I should imagine! So I present
  6. Hi, Over the past few weeks I've put this little collection of 1/72 scale 1930's fighters of the RAF together. They are a mixed bag of Airfix and Matchbox kits, some old, and some new. I must admit, they have all been a pleasure to build. Some of the kit decals couldn't be rescued owing to their +40 years age, but on the whole they went on ok. Additional decals came from friends half-used sheets. Thank you John and Chris. These aircraft certainly add a little colour to the display shelf. I have a couple more to build, but so far the collection includes: Airfix - Demon, Bulldog, Gladiator
  7. Latvia purchased a dozen Bristol Bulldog fighters, the first being delivered in September, 1929. At this time the Bulldog was very much first-rate aerial equipment, as it had only begun to enter Royal Air Force squadrons the previous May. English support in the aftermath of the Great War had been essential to the establishment of Latvia, and the other Baltic states, as independent polities, and relations remained close in the decades following. The Bulldogs arrived in two batches, one of five late in 1929, and one of seven following in 1930. They were equipped with license-built Gnome-Rh
  8. Pics thanks to Keith, I am informed this is the Swedish Spec Machine in these pics.

  10. Hello one and all, I did say I was going to build one of these aircraft and after finally find one (for £9.99) I purchased it. I have been building it over the last few weeks but haven't gotten very far due to work and SWMBO and SWTSMBO (She Who Thinks She Must Be Obeyd) getting in the way. I was originally going to do the aircraft that I flew in when I was in the ATC. However I appear to have lost/misplaced my 3822, so I have no log of it. Plus with the other 2 (or 3??) RAF Bulldogs I decided to try the Swedish version. The only problem is the decals, they have seen better days, I don
  11. Fresh off the bench today is the Airfix 1:72 Scottish Aviation Bulldog that I built for the Training Types GB. This was a fun little build and a trip down memory lane as it was the A/C I flew in my Air Training Corp Days. The kit went together well presenting no problems with the only negative issue being the Tamiya white that really didn't go on well and leaving the surface quite rough. A big thanks to Paul J for providing the roundels to replace the slightly off center kit ones. More info can be found in the WIP. I have just noticed the nav lights still need to be painted.

  12. It would seem SA Bulldogs are akin to buses and you wait ages for one and then three come along in a row! Looking at AndrewE's earlier entry I was inspired and managed to snag one of these on Ebay for about $5 (plus the same again for postage, so not quite the mega bargain!) and it just arrived. I was a bit worried what state the decals would be in after seeing snapper-city's photos but these seem okay and appear to be in register, so i will be doing the RAF version. I like the look of the Swedish one green and orange but I fancy something a little brassier. A lot of the parts are off the s

  14. Hi here are a few photo's of my tanks if any one is interested. A Tiger, Walker Bulldog and Panther G. The Panther is still being painted. Any comments welcome. I know I have gone a bit mad on the chipping but I find it relaxing and it reminds me of my first car, a "T" reg Fiat! Cheers
