  1. I just found some photo's at Pinterest from this very interesting diorama: Touchdown // F/A - 18 F Super Hornet // Scale 1:32 Does anyone happen to be familiar with this diorama or know more about the building process? https://nl.pinterest.com/pin/193936327679216455/ Thanks.
  2. This was begun a long while ago and has sadly sat neglected with boats having got in the way. So with a long boat build near completion ML196 Fairmile B - Landing Craft Control, it's time for some light relief. This model seems to have been somewhat disregarded by the modelling fraternity. The rather unglamorous cousin to the universal carrier, over 26,000 were built for use as an artillery trailer and other general transport duties This reference book is invaluable This Build will fit with a Riich QF 6Pdr gun already long bu

  4. Well, I finally found what I was looking for...I've had the 1/48 Classic Airframes ASW kit for some time now. I located a 1/48 Gannet AEW of unknown lineage last month and I found a 1/48 Dynavector vac-form ASW. I'm planning on building the Classic Airframes as an ASW, the AEW as is and the Dynavector kit as a COD. I'm pretty sure I can find the decals, etc that I need to complete the project. I've just got an interest in these contra rotating prop birds. Wish me Luck! Nick
  5. US Navy Aero 12C Cart with Ordnanceman & Mk.82 (181148) 1:48 VideoAviation The Aero 12C bomb handling cart is a wheelbarrow-style frame that has two rubber tyres that allow the manoeuvring of munitions on-deck by a single crew-member, or Ornanceman. One or two bombs are strapped in place and pushed/pulled by the one or two handles that distance the crewman far enough away from the centre of balance to make the task easy (enough). There are adapters available to carry other shapes of munitions, but in its basic form it can be used directly with the Mk.82 bomb,
  6. hello! Model aircraft builders with a special interest for (US) navy will have concluded, just like myself, that except for a few inaccurate diorama bases in 1:72 and 1:48 scale and some figures here and there, there is not much out there to build an accurate diorama. Having read an article in the IPMS Netherlands magazine about designing your own 3D print some time ago, I though that I should give it a go and create my own parts for a nice piece of 1:144 carrier. It turns out that, having designed a highly detailed Jet Blast Deflector in scale 1:72 and 1:32 that was welcomed by many fellow
  7. USS Gambier Bay is best known for her action during the Battle off Samar as a part of Task Force 77.4.3. On the morning of October 25th 1944, Vice Admiral Kurita's center force, consisting of 4 battleships (including Yamato), 8 Heavy cruisers and 11 destroyers broke through the San Bernardino Straight and were in a position to threaten the American landings at Leyte Gulf. All that stood between Kurita and the landing force was Taffy 3; 6 escort carriers, 3 destroyers and 4 destroyer escorts. In what is possibly the greatest naval mismatch in the history of warfare, Taffy 3 managed to halt, the
  8. Good morning, a few weeks ago, I started my biggest modeling effort so far: the well-known and praised USS Nimitz from Trumpeter. A fine kit, and to make it even better, I got the Eduard set, the Starfighter decal set and some more airplanes. After all, it should look rather busy. My idea is to have the carrier look like this: http://www.thunderstreaks.com/spotting/carrier-visit-uss-nimitz-august-16-17-1976/#prettyPhoto , with some minor changes on the aircraft layout. Let's start with the aircrafts: first problem, the trumpeter ones have folded-out wings, but on the original, almost all wi

  11. I've always fancied making an all black Korea bird, or a late Vietnam Electric wizzy, wither USN or USMC. (Also used by the US Army too, but details are scarce to say the least. I suspect test aircraft only?) Can I safely assume the Sword release has been abandoned? So that leaves: 72: Matchbox or 48: Encore A choice between an old kit in my preferred scale) or an expensive one. I know there are issues reported with the fit of the matchbox canopy, and lack of cockpit detail is pretty much a given, so a rare trip to the aftermarket will be likely to achieve food results. Have I missed any
  12. So with the UK's marvellous new carriers on the way, we all know that it's not a question of if but when as far as the models of them are concerned- and in particular who. Airfix have already got the Invincible Class, T45 and Trafalgar in their RN range and have alluded towards making a QE model. They would not doubt benefit from the patronage that being a British firm would provide in that context. Anyway, I've heard that 2016 will be the year- perhaps to coincide with the arrival of HMS Queen Elizabeth in Portsmouth. It's just a rumour, but y gut certainly says that it's accurate- although t
  13. IJN Carrier Kaga Kagero Kaga was an aircraft carrier of the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN), the third to enter service, named after the former Kaga Province in present-day Ishikawa Prefecture. Originally intended to be one of two Tosa-class battleships, Kaga was converted under the terms of the Washington Naval Treaty to an aircraft carrier as the replacement for the battlecruiser Amagi, which had been damaged during the 1923 Great Kanto earthquake. Kaga was rebuilt in 1933–35, increasing her top speed, improving her exhaust systems, and adapting her flight decks to more modern, heavie
  14. Hi everyone, I'd like to present my ES-3A Shadow by Italeri. I just finished the model yesterday after a 10-month build. The S-3 Viking kit itself is ok, whereas the Shadow specific parts are absolutely horrible and don't fit at all. Im quite pleased with the result, of course some minor bits bug me, but in general I'm happy. I hope you like the model! That's it! Cheers
  15. Hi All, This is my first post on here after lurking for a long time. Here is my most recent kit i finished. This is the Tamiya A6M5 in 1/72. The kits is completely OTB. Painted with Alclad II and Vallejo Model Air paints. Used the kit decals for 652 Kokutai from the Junyo carrier. Hopefully I have done the kit justice as its just a well layed out kit. Enjoy Jason
  16. HI all this will be my first build on here but hopefully not my last. iv always got half a dozen models n figures on the go at once. (26 at the moment actually) so il try not to flood the forum with stuff. in the meantime here is one i started a couple of weeks ago that i will complete on here over the next month hopefully. firtsly these ara some german prisoners iv converted from Master Box set3517 German captives. there are 2 boxes worth but i ditched the russians so just the crouts here. The idea came from a picture i have in a book ov german POWs following a carrier while a jeep wi
  17. Hello all, Thanks to Bootneck's help to find a manual I could complete this model after it waited half done for over 2 months. As not much of a ship builder it probably isn't the best thing around but I am satisfied with my build. Built OOB and brush painted as all my models. As there wasn't a paint scheme for the aircrafts on board and no decals for them, I just tried to copy what I could see in the picture on the box. Also unfortunately I messed up the big number 65 decal in fromt and had to take it off. Maybe later I'll try to compensate that by masking and painting. Hope you like it. Her
