  1. In celebration of the Royal Danish Air Force 70 years anniversary on the 1st of October, the Danes revealed a F-16 in the have glass colours of the future RDAF F-35.

  3. Hallo A look at the development of new aircraft. The high costs, overlapping development processes, and then static problems in many places. I consider this in the forum because I want to show the current weaknesses apart from any electronic development. From my own experience in development and design in large machine design and construction and series production, I can bring my experience to bear. I myself was there when vibration problems destroyed a large hydraulic power plant for the first time. At that time, the line from medium-sized machines to large machines was crossed. Thi
  4. 617 "Dambusters" Squadron - A Tribute Morning all! I hope that you are all well and keeping cool in the stiflingly hot weather that we've been having recently! To cut a long story short, last year was my first time at RIAT (and wow, if you haven't been before then I absolutely recommend it), As part of the RAF100 celebrations a flypast was arranged to pay tribute to the legendary 617 "Dambusters" Squadron with a trio of aircraft that they have flown throughout the squadron's life: the BBMF's Lancaster, a Tornado GR4 (courtesy of 41 Sqn), and a brand-new F-35

  6. The last few years I’ve been on a bit of a WWII Pacific modelling spree and I felt it was time for a change. Why not build one Lightning when you can get two at twice the effort? As it turned out, both kits would require more effort than I had anticipated. RS Models P-38F This kit is part of my ‘Hellcats over the Pacific’-themed collection. Hellcats was a Macintosh flight sim from the early 90s, at the time a very realistic game. I racked up 100s of hours in it. My goal for this theme is to build all the planes in the game in 1/72 in color schemes related t

  9. Next Kitty Hawk 1/48th kit (http://www.kittyhawkmodel.com/) will be... the Lockheed Martin F-35B Lightning II (ref.KH80102). Release date: July 2012. May I've to say that I'm not really excited by this new release. After the beautiful Kitty Hawk 1/48th F-94C Starfire, I'd have preferred new quarter inch kits of aircraft like the RF-84F Thunderflash, F-101A/C Voodoo, CF-100 Canuck, F-82 Twin Mustang, B-45 Tornado, B-66 Destroyer, F2H Banshee, FH-1 Phantom, AF-2 Guardian, F9F-8 Cougar, F-11F Tiger or AJ-2 Savage etc. Source: http://www.aeroscale...=...e&sid=11598 V.
  10. Hi all. I see Meng is prepping a new 1/48 F-35. I've been interested in an F-35 kit but there's one thing that keeps putting me off, and that's the raised surface detail with the sawtooth edging. The bits with the paler grey colouring. Every time I see photographs of the actual aircraft, the fuselage is almost completely smooth in these areas, but all scale model renditions show it raised. For purportedly being accurate, it never looks so. Does anyone know if this is indeed accurate and I'm missing something, because I could swear from any image of the real thing it is

  13. Very challenging and fun build on the Kitty Hawk F-35B STOVL Marine Corps Lightning. I started about eight months ago did a ton of research to find the most detailed photos. The aircraft has allot of openings so it only seems right to pay attention to the detail in each area. To give detail but not over do it. Also allot of research and test swatches on the paint. RAM panels overall paint scheme has to be very sharp it’s a challenge for the most seasoned modeller as the aircraft has not been in service that long and even carrier Ops show minimal weathering. The engine and aft underside seems t

  16. Hello colleagues, this time I would like to share with you about my elaborate building F-35I by Italeri 1/32 I have a complete etch set from Eduard for the kit. I made the cables in the chassis shafts and bomb bays of lead wires of different diameters. I am currently repairing the nozzle because the kit is really terrible. I use the etchings of my own design, which I lay on myself to create the characteristic look of the nozzle. Perhaps you will like the building

    F-35 colours

    I don't know if this question has been raised on Z5 before, but I am looking for the "right" model colours to paint my F-35A model. I prefer enamels, so Xtracolor or Humbrol references would be great. I have a copy of the T.O. for RNoAF (that is Norwegian) F-35s. This specify FS 36170 for the general colour and FS 36375 for markings (national insignia etc.) It also lists FS 36270, but does not say where this colour should be used. For the general colour, Italeri says this should be FS 36118, but this cannot be true as photos of the F-35 in formation with F-16 show that the F-35 is more brown
  18. Hi. everybody! Let me present you my next model. It's build practically just from box, but some self-made details and ready etched set (Eduard) were added.
  19. Altough I have BigE on the table i decided to start another model during holidays. This time I moved away from ships and straships and chosed Italeri F-35A Lightning II in 1/72 scale. Here's few pictures of box and it's content Box Two bigger sprues ( A & B )and little one (C) with clear parts. Decals Instructions Model will be out of the box without any aftermarket. I choosed Gunze aqua colors and I am not really a modern aircraft expert (or any aircraft ) so i decided to trust Italeri's color
  20. Hi Everyone, This was my first visit to RIAT and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. My wife and I were going to go to a different airshow, but decided we would try RIAT out. As soon as the show finished, I said to my wife that I would like to go again next year especially as the theme is 75th anniversary of the USAF. I hope they bring the big bombers over including the B-2. I couldn't believe how many members went to the airshow this year, I wonder if I saw any of you without realising it. My wife and I were sat to the right of the P-8 Poseidon patrol aircraft all day and had a great view of all
  21. 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.

  23. Bought this kit for a couple of months and after almost finishing the hasegawa EF2000, it would be interesting to see how this kit stands up against others. I elected to begin construction with the cockpit. There are only five main parts and they were glued and primed in a couple minutes. Sorry for the lack of photos, I just figured out how to add photos to my posts.
  24. Phew, just returned back to the South West after an extended and unbelievably busy week in Rosyth and Edinburgh. What an experience: the pinnacle of my professional career (so far) and honestly, I am still bursting with pride and to cap it all I encountered the legendary Eric Brown as he stepped off the VIP bus and headed to his seat - my all time personal hero and possibly the most deserving VIP there (apart from HM of course). The ship looked fantastic, she utterly dwarfed the equally fantastic looking ILLUSTRIOUS, and the vast number of genuinely interested and knowledgeable kids
