  2. Fiat CR.42 LW With German Pilots (32022) 1:32 ICM The Fiat CR.42 Falco (Falcon) was developed in the late 1930s at a time when the more modern monoplane fighters were starting to outstrip bi-planes in performance but it was felt they still had a place. The CR.42 was a development of the CR.32 which were used with success in the Spanish Civil War. The new aircraft would feature a supercharged radial engine and be of simple clean strong construction offering good manoeuvrability. The CR.42 was considered to be the best bi-plane available at the start of
  3. Hi all, Fair to say that naval aviation types figure a lot in my builds, whether jets, props or rotors. And I've always had a soft spot for the Grumman C-2 Greyhound - it's the white van of the US Carrier Fleet, bringing anything from post and passengers to spare parts and jet engines to and from aircraft carriers, wherever they may be in the world. Not the prettiest,. Or the fastest. But one of the most important types I think. And sadly lacking in kits for such an important type with a service career dating back to 1965 and only being replaced this year with the Osprey
  4. Hi all and just finished up this one - I've always wanted a Grumman C-2 Greyhound in 1/72 and felt lockdown was the time to build it! Full build thread plastic bodging is here but to recap: Kits: Falcon 4605 C-2A Greyhound Vacform Conversion with Fujimi E-2 Hawkeye donor Build: Conversion! Extras: None - 30G of nose weight in the kit courtesy of 1c coins Decals: Mix of Fujimi stencils and spares. Painted tails for VRC-30 'Providers' Paints: Halfords Primer, Tamiya Acrylics, Kear, Flory Models Wash, W&N Satin Varnish This is the 2nd vacform I've bu
  5. Hi! Im Fredrik and im new to this forum. Great to be here! I just picked up modeling together with my brother and father (we made a hobby room for dad as a 60 yr gift). Last time i built something was when I was 12. Iron eagle has always been one of my faviorite movies as a kid (still is kind of) so building a F16 was an easy decision. Looking for comments about what to improve techniquewise for my next model. Hopefully I can add some images of the result in daylight when I get back to our hobbyroom . I put the images in the post below.

  7. I was luckiy enough to grad one of these when they briefly came into stock at Hannants. This is the Revell distributed version. The only difference in the box is a small revell sticker on the back , otherwise its the premium edition of the Bandai kit with the leds and etched parts. Its a Beautiful kit with spectacular details. I made life a bit easier for myself by removing alot of the push fit connections and using Tamiya extra thin. Its a real time bandit , especially the paintjob with hundreds of tiny decals all over , and i still have not added them all yet. If you are a Star wars Fan and

  9. Late last year I went on a Viper rampage. Here's the first of them. Kit is the Revell F-16C kit which has all the bits for an early F-16C. The famous Rammstein Dragon is one of the most colorful of all USAF Vipers IMHO and I have always wanted to build it. The decals came from a Superscale set but all the stencils were swindled from an old Revell F-16A boxing, one of the few places one can get hi-viz stencils that were the norm up until the Gulf War (hey decal makers, what are you waiting for?). The aircraft was an early Block 30 which still had the narrow intakes. Gunz
  10. And finally, the last of the trio of Vipers that I finished recently. This is an Academy F-16C Block 42 in the super attractive new Have Glass scheme. I used, for the first time ever, Mr Paint. It went on beautifully although I would have liked it to be a bit darker. I would strongly recommend MRP to anyone else, my only impediment to using more of them is living in a relatively small place in London where ventilation is an issue (it's lacquer-based) and yes, it smells bad. The much-maligned Academy kit has its major issues, namely a nose that is too straight and which
  11. Part II of the late 2017 Viper spree that I just finished off recently, here's another Revell F-16C with markings of "Wild Thang", a Desert Storm bird from Shaw AFB. This was a Block 25 and so had both the narrow intake and P&W engine. A few other bits and bobs had to be corroborated with pictures since Revell's instructions do not account for a Block 25 or 30/32 despite these being the only C blocks that the kit gets right! The aircraft depicted is from the 363rd TFS from Shaw AFB with nose art "Wild Thang". The decals came from an old Hi-Decals set that I had since ages ago.
  12. Hi all I recently purchased the Bandai 1/144 falcon and I’ve been looking into using the shapeways cockpit but I’ve never used shapeways before, does anyone have a link to them as I don’t even know where to start looking Sam
  13. Yet another master series Falcon from me. I have lost count of how many of these i have built. Nearly straight from the box but with 3d printed radar dish. Weathering is being a bit washed out in the photos. weathering not 100% movie accurate but this is my Falcon so im not too bothered. Still a great kit.
  14. When: 7th January 2017 to 9th April 2017 Hosts: trickyRich, Neu Before anyone mentions it, yes we have had one of those before in 2012. But seeing as the STGB calendar is full up until 2017 there would have been a nice break since the last one and so it must be time to do it again! This is one of "those" aircraft you never really get tied of, almost a perfect design, and really successful design at that was used throughout the world and still is very much in use! Plus the nice thing is there is a huge range of models for this aircraft from 1/144th up to 1/32nd and covering ever var
  15. I've not finished the base, but here's my take on the Force Awakens Falcon. The model was primed in Citadel black from a rattle can, with a couple of light base coats of that rare beast Tamiya AS-20. For the panelling I used the supplied water slides, with lots of coats of Microsol. Everything else was completed with multiple pin washes in brown & black, with a couple of spots of soot airbrushed on (it was my first time using an airbrush, so be gentle!), and finally the streaking was a built-up mix of brown & black Gundam real touch markers (these blend up so well, and are very forgivi

  17. AIM-4D and AIM-4G Falcon Missiles 1:72 Eduard Brassin The AIM-4 Falcon was designed by Hughes Aerospace. It was the first operational guided air-to-air missile of the USAF. The AIM-4 was a not liked in the USAF it originally had a small warhead and was limited by lacking a proximity fuse. The missile had to hit to kill. In addition limited coolant meant the missile was useless on the rail after only two minutes. The AIM-4G was the Infrared seeker version of the Super Falcon as it was called which replaced the original AIM-4C. The AIM-4D was the final version of the missile which ent

  22. Scalemates lists the Dujin kit, but also the unknown to me A-A Model, in 1/72. However, there are no more details in the page, not even a photo of the box. http://www.scalemates.com/products/product.php?id=203791 Anyone knows if this kit is still available? A Miles Falcon would be great news from Airfix! (dreaming is cheap...) Carlos
  23. Hi All, I have a few questions about the F-16F Desert Falcon (UAE Air Force) which I hope you knowledgeable types out there might be able to answer? 1) What kind of wheels does it have? Are they the same as the Block 50/52? 2) What is the laser targeting pod they carry? It looks different to the Sniper XR, is it a new type and is it available in 1/32? (yeah right! ) 3) Do the UAE F-16s carry standard wing tanks or can they also use the 600gal tanks? 4) Any clues as to the air-to-surface load they would typically carry? Do they have JSOW, AGM-130 or SLAM-ER? Otherwise do they use the same
  24. Finished yesterday, had a few fitting problems and I messed with decals a bit but am still pleased with the result. Regards
  25. F-16 NATO Falcons Eduard 1:48 In 1973, one of the most versatile aircraft that's ever flown took to the air for the first time, the YF-16. Experience in Vietnam led to the need in the US for a lightweight fighter (LWF) with high agility and performance, however this need was challenged due to the parallel drive to equip with F-15's. The challenge was put to bed by an agreement to provide the US Air Force with a mix of High / low cost air superiority fighters, each having their own benefits. The competition came down to two competing aircraft, the YF-16 and the YF-17 whic
