  1. I picked up this CMR Seafire a while ago when the only way to make a Seafire in 1:72 was to convert a Spitfire kit or one of CMR's resin kits. I've a few in the stash and some have been built but then Admiral, Sword and AZ Models all introduced injection moulded Seafires, and almost every Seafire Mark is available IM. So the resin kits have been left sitting in their bags. Which is a shame as they're accurate, nicely moulded and well engineered. And unlike some resin ranges they're not all that challenging to build. This build is therefore not something a bit esoteric like my Parn
  2. Before anybody says, 'There's no way the Nimrod was an interceptor ' this is a much earlier airframe. The Nimrod was the FAA's last biplane fighter, being replaced just before WW2 by the Skua. The Nimrod was effectively a navalised Hawker Fury with catapult capability and an arrestor hook. It was the Fleet fighter throughout the 1930s serving in all FAA carriers. A number were also sold to Denmark without naval equipment and they were still in service when Denmark was invaded, but none of them saw combat. A valuable and effective fighter that took over Fleet defence from the Flycatcher.
  3. Dear All, I'm thinking of buying the CMR 72nd scale kit of the Seafire 1b but have no previous experience of this makers products so wondered if anyone has already been down this route and could comment on how good the kit is as it is not cheap at £24+. I've also never built a resin kit before so are there any things to bear in mind, such as the correct adhesives to use, when building and painting the model I wonder? Any/all advice very welcome before I take the plunge as I'm also interested in the CMR Spitfire XII, when it eventually arrives at the Big H, b
  4. About 11 years ago I purchased the CMR Supermarine Scimitar kit as well as the DS06 wing fold set - I only recently started putting the fuselage together and when I went to add the wing centre section I could not believe that there were two right hand wing centre sections in the bags and no left hand section. Anyone have ideas on how to resolve this other than scratch building a new left wing centre section - I believe the CMR Scimitars and wing fold are now out of production & the chance of someone having bought a wing fold set with two left hand centre section is pretty remot
  5. Probably my final contribution but a spate of bad weather may change that is this Seafire F45, the third but last Seafire Mark. It didn't have folding wings and was used as an interim airframe between the lower powered Mk XVs and XVIIs and the penultimate and ultimate Mks 46 and 47. I thought this was the only way to make an F45 without converting a Mk46 but I have subsequently found an F45 from Admiral in the stash. But it's a while since I've done a whole aircraft in resin, and CMR kits are pretty good, although I suspect this is a fairly early kit of theirs. There'
  6. Hi Folks, 2nd build in this GB. While I wait for seat belts to arrive for the prototype (I have some here somewhere , but damned if I know where!) I'll make a start on this 1/72 Czech Master Resin F Mk 22/24. I'm going to model F Mk 24 VN318 when it was with the Hong Kong Auxiliary Air Force at Kai Tak, as it appeared for the HKAAF's final Spitfire flypast in April 1955; Alfred Price's 'The Spitfire Story' says that 'the Mark 24, was in its initial form externally no different from the Mark 22... Late production Spitfire 24s were distinguis
  7. Hi mates, Having not gained any additional common sense from my last resin build, I decided to jump head first into another! This time it's the oft-neglected subject of the Supermarine Scimitar in glorious 1:72 scale, courtesy of the master craftsmen from the Czech Republic, CMR. The Scimitar, of course, was the last fighter to wear the Supermarine name, and the direct descendent of the legendary Walrus, er, Spitfire from WWII. Project: Supermarine Scimitar F.1 Kit: Czech Master Resin (CMR) Supermarine Scimitar F.1 (kit number 221) Scale: 1:72 (The Gentleman's Scale -
  8. Cheers, mates! Another beauty finally finished during the lock-down... Probably the best looking British piston-engine fighter to enter production, imho. The kit was the first really good representation of this plane that emerged on the market (>10 years ago, may be...) and until very recently was the only 1/72 option for a late version of a Spitfire. Entirely made from resin, the kit came with extensive decal sheet, fotoetched details and two vac canopies. Initially my intent was to open the door and the canopy, but after messing the first one, decided to play safe... Mad
  9. Tempest Fuselage Fuel & Oil Tanks (4394) 1:48 CMK by Special Hobby We reviewed the resin upper engine set from CMK here, and at the time I hadn't noticed that I also had this set to review too, so aren't I silly? This set arrives in a yellow-themed shallow blister pack with header card and instructions within, and 12 resin parts on six casting blocks within. The kit’s fuselage halves will need to be cut to expose the area, which is covered in diagrammatic form in step one, and while you’re cutting you might as well expose the engine, eh?
  10. Hi mates, I think I have recovered enough from my dual Fairey Firefly builds to start a new project. The lucky kit that worked its way to the top of my stash is the 1:72 CMR de Havilland Sea Venom FAW.53, which I'll build as WZ895/870-NW of No. 724 Squadron RAN, as it appeared at NAS Nowra in the summer of '59. Ah, the summer of '59 - I was five years old and constantly mad at my older brothers for monopolising the gramophone with that lousy rock 'n' roll music. I wanted to play my Mickey Mouse records! And my folks - I really didn't care that Castro just took over Cuba
  11. Although it fills the last remaining gap in my Seafire collection http://www.gengriz.co.uk/RNPropsweb/seafire.htm , this month's kit really tested my patience. Whilst the end result is quite pleasing, this really wasn't an enjoyable build. This is the Czech Master Resins Seafire F.45, a kit for which I had very high expectations, but which proved to be a spectacularly difficult build. In fact it was nearly abandoned on several occasions. My problem was that I really couldn't get the resin parts to adhere to each other, despite using different types and batches of sup
  12. Definitely want to build another de Havilland aircraft in parallel to my Mosquito build. I do like the twin tail jets de Havilland designed so I decided to build a CMR Venom in Swiss colours. The Swiss Air Force had some Venoms painted in some special colour schemes and the aircraft I decided to build is J-1577 which got painted in this striking scheme at Ambri in October 1979 as part of exercise PHOENIX. How did it come to this scheme you may ask. Well, it is a long story. From 1976 onward the retirement of the first Venoms was foreseeable.
  13. My second build for this GB is another failed record breaker in the shape of "Speed Spitfire" N.17 After Herrman Wurster captured the world landplane record for Germany flying a modified Messerschmitt Bf 109 on 11 November 1937 with a speed of 379mph (610 kmh), the British plans for a record attempt using a modified Spitfire received some new interest. The 48th production Spitfire Mk.I K9834, then in a very early stage of construction at Woolston, was selected for modification to the "Speed Spitfire" for an attempt on the world landplane record in
  14. Scale Resin (http://www.cmrmodels.com/modely-scale-resin) is to re-release Czech Master Resin 1/72nd NA.39 & Blackburn Buccaneer S.Mk.1 resin kits - ref. A7201 & A7202 Source and preview: http://www.hyperscale.com/2015/reviews/kits/scaleresina7201previewbg_1.htm V.P.
  15. Here is a resin model of DH Venom FB.4. I tried to build it straight out the box, but spoilt panel lines recessing. So I made new panel recessing and add etched panels and hatches. Model is painted with Arcus authentic paints: 092 Gun Metal - Exhaust and guns 095 Aluminium - wheel wells, wing-tip tanks, 098 Jet Black - whell tyres 359 Yellow and 360 Night- Musketeer bands 365 PRU Blue - under surfaces 379 Dark Sea Grey and 387 Dark Green- camouflage 380 Medium Sea Grey- drop tanks
  16. Hi folks. I wanna start my first WIP here on britmodeller with CMR#189 1/72 DH Venom FB.4, WR444. Any help and feedback will be appreciated. Here is a profile of the a/c mentioned in this topic: Pity, but I cant find any photo of this a/c so there is a lot of questions. But let's keep' em for future, now i wanna tell you few words about the work done. I got this kit in built condition, but I wanna rebuilt it because of inaccurate panel recessing. I got started from the filling panel recessing with the putty, for now about a half of the plane has already sanded. Here we are. Meanwh
  17. So I've had the urge to build this kit, as I think its a very cool kit of a very interesting subject. So this is a limited edition CMR resin kit, signed by James Stocky Edwards. It was only available from West Coast Hobbys, as they are located near where Edwards lives on Vancouver Island. I'm sorry for the plug, but Rob at West Coast has always given me great service, and pretty competitive prices... I can't recommend them enough. Anyway, In my mind, Edwards is Canada's finest fighter pilots, but he'd probably never say that. He was a quiet professional who led his men to battle, while
  18. Hi mates, I've been seduced by the dark side. The side that won't be stuck by conventional styrene adhesives. The side that seduces you with the addictive aroma of toxic dust. The side that shocks you more than the price for a litre of petrol. You know the side I speak of - resin modelling! Hot on the heels of my resin Grumman Jaguar from the Swinging Winging Group Build, I've decided to pull another resin kit out of the stash for this one. It's the 1:72 CMR take on the Supermarine Scimitar F.1. In addition to the basic kit, I also spent my child's remaining college fun
  19. Until I can score some Alclad II, Alclad-worthy primer, and a protective suit like they wear on Breaking Bad, I'll be working on this guy: It was a birthday present from my wife this year, and I have never built a full resin kit before, and I hate vacform canopies. Suffice it to say I'm scared crapless.
  20. Hi mates! After 48 years of modelling, I decided to take the plunge and build my first all-resin kit. I've certainly used lots of resin cockpits and other detailing accessories, but I've never gone for an entire resin model. I figured I should start with something simple and easy, so I picked CMR's beautiful 1:72 Buccaneer. The work-in-progress thread can be found here. I learned a lot along the way, but I think the biggest takeaway is that building a resin kit really isn't much different than a "normal" plastic kit. You have more work to do removing the parts and clean
  21. Dc-1 converted from the CMR DC-1 in 1/144, beside a stock DC-2 kit straight out of the box. The DC-1's registrations were custom made by Vintage Flyer Decals and combined with the kit markings. I'll post more pictures when I have a better backdrop
  22. De Havilland Venom NF.2 1:72 Czech Master Resin The Vampire was infamously characterised by its unorthodox twin boom layout. Being the second jet fighter to enter into RAF service after the Meteor, it set several records early in its existence and went on to serve in no less than 31 air forces. The Venom was a natural evolution utilising a thinner wing and more powerful engine to increase performance. There were two basic configurations, the single seater being a fighter bomber, where as the two seat machines had a cockpit layout based on that of the proven Mosquito providing all
  23. Finally finished the build review on this elegant fighter. CMR have continued the variants of the Vampire / Venom range and make full use of the technology available to achieve a highly detail result. The build review can be found HERE. On the whole, the kit goes together very well. Some care and fettling was required along the fuselage seem and front wheel bay as well as applying the vast amount of tiny parts, but most of my set backs were own goals being the plonka I sometimes am !!!! Whilst generally speaking, the CMR kits are more pricey than your mainstream kits, you do get everything n
  24. Now that the bench is clear, I'll be cracking on with this with the view to putting a build review together at the end. Having made the Mistral a few months ago, I'm rather excited with it. CMR kits usually offer lots of juicy cockpit detail and this one is no exception, but with the added benefit that it's bigger than the Mistral due to being a 2 seater so there's more opportunity to see all the hard work on display ! The box... The pack that includes a full resin kit, two types of canopy and two of each incase you make a boo boo, paint masks, coloured etch and two sheets of decals,
  25. Czech Master Resin (CMR - http://www.cmrmodels.co.uk/ ) has announced a 1/72nd Hunting Percival Provost T.1/51/52 kit. Source: http://www.cmrmodels.co.uk/cmr72-235/hunting-percival-provost-t1'51'52.html Anyway I'd like to see a kit of the same aircraft type but in 1/48th... V.P.
