  3. My first build of 2021 and first Tamiya model. For my first tamiya I have to say some very nice detail and fits. Found the decals a little weak especially the intake hazard decals too many folds. And not a fan of the colours only available as a spray making it very hard to convert to a tin or to humbrol etc. If anybody has a good cross reference site for tamiya AS paints let me know please.
  4. A-26 Invader (83213) 1:32 Hobby Boss via Creative Models Ltd The A-26 Invader underwent a confusing change of designation to B-26 Invader after 1948 by the US Air Force to confuse us (mainly me), and later on back to the A-26 just to complete my befuddlement. It was developed a little later than the Marauder and despite using the same engines it was designed totally separately from its more rotund colleague. It was designed to replace the A-20 Havoc, but it was initially less than popular in the Pacific theatre where its poor cockpit visibility due to the canopy
  5. About the only qualifying kit from my stash, originally received when I was about 9. A gift from a party for children at the factory my dad worked at. I remember building this kit at my grandparents' place, and asking my grandad what size engine - he ran a garage. Unpainted, and covered in glue fingerprints, it was my first success at a turning prop. This particular kit a purchase at Jet Age. An older couple came to Jet Age on 17 Nov 2019, selling their late-son's kit stash. A bit of a dead-man's locker sale, I bought this Dauntless for £5. I'm pretty sure I kne
  6. Hi all, here is my new 1/72 MPM Douglas A-20G Havoc "la france libre": Construction: MPM has created a superb kit in 1/72 for the Douglas Havoc / Boston variants. In 2008 i brought the D-Day Havocs kit variants with the solid gun nose. At first, I wanted to build OOB, but after a while, some details were added scratch: Cockpit: Life raft and details Nose: Brass MG barrels (accessory), fuselage reinforcement, MG ejectors Fuselage: Rudimentary fuselage installation, rear exit Turret: Entire tower structure, brass MG barrels (accessory) Engines: C

  8. A-26B/C Invader Decals (D4801) 1:48 ICM via Hannants There's a brand new tool Invader in 1:48 coming from those delightful folks at ICM, who have already given us new lines of He.111, Ju.88, Dornier 17, 215, 217 etc., and show no sign of stopping, which has the be good news for us quarter-scale folks. This set of additional decals has managed to beat their new kit to our shores in order to whet our appetite for the forthcoming plastic goodness. The set arrives in a re-sealable foil bag stapled to a header card, with the decals cove
  9. The A-4H was developed specially for Israel, it was A-4E which featured improved avionics and the improved thrust J52-P-8A engine. Armament consisted of twin DEFA 30 mm cannons. Later modifications included the avionics hump and an extended tailpipe, implemented in Israel by IAI. Pics thanks to Dov.

  12. One of my more recent work, the immaculate Skyraider. Here seen in the colours of VA-176. Modelled in Modo with very little Photoshop post render work needed on this one, more or less just changed the contrast and added a tiny bit of grainy 'noise' to the image.
  13. A-4C Bu No.147715 at the Fort Worth Aviation museum. Pics thanks to Nigel Heath.
  14. Calling all Invader experts! For a TB-26 was the gun laying apparatus in the rear section removed? Where the turrets blanked over with circular flat plates? I think from memory that the Airfix kit includes these plates? What are the gun arrangement options. Many I am looking to build have them set in a horizontal plane rather that the two vertical sets of 4 in the Airfix and Italeri kits. Thanks. Martin
  15. Came across this recently. I thought it was an unusual subject. Thusly one model was purchased The box, shows it with wheels; However, included in the parts are floats as well as wheels; The decals. The box says you can build any of of the 5 of these; but you can't really. Each was named for a US city [Boston/Boston II/Chicago/New Orleans/Seattle] and the name 'Seattle' is not provided. The red centre dot on the star is printed off-set so I'll have to replace them with decals from the files. I'll probably paint the
  16. Welcome to a quick build of the Monogram 1/82nd scale Douglas RB-66A Destroyer. The Douglas RB-66A Destroyer was supposed to have been a straightforward adaptation of the A-3 Skywarrior for the U.S. Air Force to replace the RB-57A Canberra. There were to be three versions of the B-66; an RB-66A recon platform, an EB-66 ELINT version, and a WB-66 weather recon version, and it was believed that no prototypes would be required. In practice the aircraft produced was an almost new design which was overweight and underpowered. Five pre-production RB-66A aircraft were produced and none of
  17. Built in 1948 at the Douglas El Segundo Plant in California as an AD-4NA this Skyraider saw service with the French and Gabon Air Force's. The Aircraft is now owned by Kennet Aviation and based at North Weald. Is now marked as A-1H 126922 from VA-176 "Thunderbolts" Pics from Tony (swordfish fairey)
  18. Douglas SBD-5 Dauntless 1:48 Eduard Limited Edition The Douglas SBD Dauntless was a Naval Dive Bomber and Scout aircraft developed by Douglas for the US Navy. The SBD being Scout Bomber Douglas. Design work on the aircraft was started back in 1935 by the then Northtrop Corporation under the designation BT-1. Northrop being taken over by Douglas in 1937. The design was modified to become the BT-2. This was ordered by both the US Navy and Marine Corps. The original SBD-1, and later SBD-2 (with increased range and different armament) were the first two types deployed. The USMC getting the

  20. Hi, I'm calling this done. It's the new tool Airfix kit with Rocketeer decals (I didn't get on well with these). Thanks to Paul J for the blister window, though I have come to realise it should be tear drop shaped, please don't chastise me! Finished with Tamiya acrylics.
