  1. And now to something completely - and I mean completely - different. A while back I saw that Bloodbowl was coming back and one of the teams caught my eye right away - The Halfling Bloodbowl Team - The Greenfield Grasshuggers! When I saw them an idea started forming in the back of my head - I would paint them in the colours of the Danish National Football team! But I couldn't decide on which year! So I decided to paint them in the colours of twelve different years. The first one - which I present here - is from the year 1992 (of course! ). The year in which we (the team) won the European Championship! It has never been forgotten - there has even been a movie made about it! So this is my humble take on the outfit worn by the goalkeeper - Peter Schmeichel - a name I would guess is also well known in the UK. So without further ado: The number on the shoulder is the year of the shirt while the number on the chest and back is the number of the figure - hence number 1. There are as mentioned twelve figures so I decided to make a base that would hold them all: I put a bit of longer grass and flowers on it as I thought the halflings would like it! So here I am - one down - eleven to go! Cheers Hans J
  2. I spent some time in Roskilde, Denmark last summer, and as well as discovering that all Danish women are supermodels, I was lucky enough to have the RDAF flying their Merlins overhead 2-3 times a day, all week. Obviously, I fell in love (with the helicopters... I swear!) and vowed that I would try to model one when I return. Well, it took some time, but here it is! My humble attempt at a Danish SAR Merlin Mk.512. It started life as the Skyfall boxing of Italeri's 1/72 Merlin (HC.3?) The kit itself isn't too bad. As much detail in a kit as you would expect from a 1/72 helo. There were a few fit issues that i found. The sides of the fuselage that come separate weren't great, as was the main canopy/windscreen. The tail was a nightmare. I don't know if it was a moulding error, but there were no tabs to insert to add stability to the join. I knocked it off about 3 times before I ended up fabricating supports internally for it myself. Other than that, the kit seems pretty well designed. I used the Eduard PE set for cockpit detail & seatbelts, and was very happy with the outcome. To turn it into a Mk. 512, I used Heritage's Danish Merlin conversion set. Being both my first experience with resin and with converting a model, I can't really compare it to anything... I was pleased with the conversion set... the moulding seemed decent and it had everything I needed (I think...) For decals, the only option I really had was the Model Alliance World Air Power set 1. The decals themselves were great. They went on perfectly, and were really crisp in detail. The problem with the set, however, was the actual decal set. I had heard before that they weren't great, but didn't really think they would be as disappointing as they were. As well as being very incomprehensive, there were also some pretty epic mess-ups. The danger stencil for the rear rotor, for example, read 'Fare - Avle Lys.' Now, my Danish isn't great (Kamelålså?) but I'm sure any Dane will tell you that that is a load of rubbish. I managed to find the correct 'Fare - Pas På' stencil from the HobbyBoss Danish Lynx, but unless you are desperate, I wouldn't recommend the Model Alliance set to anyone thinking of using it. Other than that, any extra detail was scratchbuilt. Well, attempted, anyway. My scratchbuilding skill leaves a lot to be desired. I used Revell & Tamiya Acrylics, and was my first attempt using my new Testors Aztek airbrush. Although I'm very far from mastering it, it makes a huge difference over my dodgy £15 Humbrol Airbrush. The end result is far from perfect - Maskol buggered up my clear parts in a few places, and I think I was a bit hasty to get it finished, but I'm pretty happy with the outcome. It's difficult to do such a pretty piece of kit justice, but hopefully I've not done too bad! I'm operating a don't ask, don't tell policy on all the mistakes and inaccuracies, but I'm sure some of you can pick them out. Maybe it's one I don't know about, so comments and criticism is more than welcomed. Sorry about the pic quality too. Maybe now I have a new airbrush, I can save for a new camera! Anyway, that's my essay done. Hope you enjoy, and thanks for looking! Daryl.
  3. Danish F-100 Super Sabre used a Martin Baker ejection seat. Does anyone know which type of Martin Baker seat it was ? Thanks Brian
  4. Hello everyone, A quick question. I just got hold of a Marivox 1/72 SAAB B-17 kit. For those unfamiliar with the type; here is the link to the English language Wikipedia entry: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saab_17 There is also some nice film from the Flygvapenmuseum archive in Sweden here: https://youtu.be/6rKokrXWRoU The kit is good, with an incredible number of build options and 16 different decal schemes ! I am rather a fan of Scandinavian aviation and want to start 'getting it right'. Well, as 'right' as I can. The kit has Humbrol colour call outs. I wish to make a model of one of the Danish/DANFORCE aircraft. I have some questions: Were these in the standard two tone Swedish scheme? I can't find many photographs, but it would appear so. There is the one in the Danish Technical Museum at Helsingor, of course, but as I get older I get a little careful with Museum colours. Nevertheless I would trust the Danes and Swedes to be quite thorough, a lot more than some other international museums . https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Saab_17A.jpg#mw-jump-to-license If it is the same colour (or even not), the instructions callmout for Humbrol 30. Although agood all round green, when I look at these (and other Swedish) aircraft of the early 1940's, I see a more 'yellow-green", perhaps verging on khaki. Am I correct here in thinking Humbrol 30 a little questionable? Grey or blue underside? A little like the Polish Khaki on e.g. PZL P-37 Łos, but maybe a little warmer? I don't know of any model paint manufacturers that make Swedish aviation/military specific colours.. I found a build here on BM by @pabbi and it looks like he had the same colour queries as me. Also sadly his photographs have fallen foul of this terrible attempt at extortion by Photobucket. Grrr Photobucket I don't like you at all !! A good picture and some background (in Danish) here, of the Danish aircraft: http://clausalstru4.wixsite.com/danforce-bat/mindet-om-den-danske-brigade Any advice on any aspect of these DANFORCE B 17C aircraft, especially colours, would be most gratefully received. Best regards TonyT
  5. Hi Guys, I will be building a 1/48 Hasegawa Saab Draken. The box is the special version of the Austrian version. I will build it in the colours of a Royal Danish Air Force (RDAF) F-35 Draken. This is the Ground attack version.I have some extra parts to go with it. Here are the goodies that will be used: Aires set 4374 J35F/J cockpit set Aires set 4390 Draken reconnacance conversion Eduard set FE417 J35 zoom set Finemolds set AC-90 Pitot tubes & AOA probes in metal Maestro set K4804 Jettisonable tanks x 2 Maestro set K4806 Jettisonable tanks x 2 Maestro set K4827 Danish Pylons x 6 (not arrived jet) Maestro set MMK4834 Saab WDNS Draken nose Maestro set MMD4803 decals for some Danish Drakens Quickboost QB48188 Air scoops Let the pictures talk. The box. And the spues. And now the extra goodies. And the decals used. As it is not recommended to do a party model, I will use some of the decals of this sheet to make a ground attack version. And the last two pictures are for the Hasegawa armament set's that I am going to use for the bombs and Bullpulp rockets. I have also ordered a set of danish pylons. That I will pick up next week at a friend. Cheers, p.s. just found out that the after market tanks are the wrong ones. I have ordered a new set.

  7. Hello, Just have finished this and I'd like to share with you. First as usual, couple things about the kit. i was really really surprised when I first open the box. First glance on some pieces, mainly the fuselage and the cabin and only thing I could say was "wow!". The "wow" factor ended couple steps later. Don't get me wrong, most of the kitis really amazing. Great detail, a lot of rivets and nice panel lines, but when I get to the engine cowling I was shocked. I've looked on different websites to see if real Lynx has this section completely flat, as on this kit.. Well it still looked good. then I went to fitting the main canopy and beautiful 1mm gap appeared! I've managed to fill it with some putty, but I don't really like surprises like this. I don't mind some gaps, but this one was way too big. Other disappointment was engine intake cover which should be a mesh, but in the kit is made with clear plastic. I scratch build it with some old PE leftovers. The kit gives you couple options of the aircraft to build. I decided to build anti-piracy Danish version. I kind like it I must say. I've installed an internal light to lighten up the cabin a bit. It was just a try before my general and main project for this year and it worked fine. Ok, no more talking, there come the pictures: Thanks! Bart
