  1. Hi all. I've been stuck with Wing B. I know what I want to achieve with the exterior paint but I'm not quite sure how to do it or the result. So since the Bandai kits yard is not enough to take things lightly and push forward to see what comes out I have decided to leave it until my ideas are clarified and in the meantime undertake a much simpler kit, in all aspects. And it was this little one's turn. Very good kit from the Fine Molds brand, with good details and equally fine and negative panel lines representing this small combat ship that appeared in the film “The Phantom Me
  2. We're now stocking the excellent 1/700 Fine Molds Nano Dread range here @ MJW Models! We've got a few of the AA gun sets in the the WW2 Royal Navy, US Navy and IJN - mainly the AA guns, which are done badly in most kits! https://mjwmodels.co.uk/fine-molds-nano-dread-1700-plastic-parts-759-c.asp We're also stocking 1/700 Aoshima and 1/700 IBG ship kits https://mjwmodels.co.uk/model-ship-kits-and-accessories-732-c.asp All of these are at discounted prices! thanks Mike
  3. Hi Everyone, this is something I've been working on as part of a bigger project to cover the (rather neglected) female pilots of the Star Wars OT era. Each project will have a craft and figure. For those of you that don't know, when they were made, ANH and ESB had no female pilots, but ROTJ was supposed to have them. They even shot video of three, but apparently test screenings of ROTJ with them in got negative comments about women in combat (this was 1983) so they took them out. Except one - an A-Wing pilot called Sila Kott who you can glimpse for a second before her death. But they over-dubb
  4. #21/2020 My dad´s next finished Imperial Japanese subject. After four combat aircraft, this time a recon plane. The very nice Fine Molds kit, fit is very good, except the one-piece canopy (the only canopy provided) didn´t sit that well in the rear area. Painted with Tamiya XF-14 JA Grey, XF-13 JA Green and XF-64 Red Brown. EZ Line for the antenna wire. The kit has nice cockpit detail but sadly you don´t really see it afterwards.

  7. #16/2020 The IJ theme continues... As far as I´ve read the Judy was Fine Molds first 1/48 release, dating back to 1993. So there are some fit issues. As you can see on the pics, the inner landing gear doors have attachement points for the retraction "fork" but there are no such parts in the kit. Some modelers scratchbuild them but my dad didn´t. The yellow wing leading edges and the dark green outlines of the fuselage hinomarus are painted. Eduard seabelts, EZ Line for the wires, camo done with Tamiya XF-12 JN Grey and XF-70 Dark Green 2 (IJN). Build thread here https://www.br
  8. This is my Fine Molds1/48 Snowspeeder. Cracking little kit, but teeny tiny even in 1/48 I wasn't too fussed about 100% accuracy when painting the interior - especially as I struggled to find decent ref pics, I was looking more for the effect of making it look "busy" and I am very happy with how its turned out. Rest of the construction will be 15 mins work, then I'm going to try pre-shading this one. Looking forward to some heavy weathering
  9. Hello everyone! Here's my recently finished trio of 1/72 Fine Molds X-Wings representing the iconic hero flight of Red-2, Red-3 and Red-5 that made the Death Start trench run in the original Star Wars. One of these (Red-2) was acquired back in 2001 and had been wrecked, then completely stripped and has now been rebuild along with the other two that I got just as the production run was ending back in 2015. The restoration project was a tough affair over several years involving a lot of 3d printed parts that I designed based on the originals - there's a WIP thread if you're intereste
  10. So my Snowspeeder is done, and it's fair to say I'm very, very happy with this. As happy as I am with anything I've done. The Fine Molds kit is a little cracker (and I mean little). Painted with Artic White from the excellent Hataka "Orange Line" Lacquers and weathered with Flory Wash "grime", Tensocrom "smoke" and a little bit of oils. You know how I said it was small? Here it is on top of a YF-23 in the same scale....
  11. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my first completed model in 2020, quite a common subject - Fine Molds' 1/72 Bf-109 G10. This build is part of my "stash reduction program", aimed at kits that exist in multiple numbers/boxings in my stash. I used Exito Decals "The Last In Line (ED72006)" to represent "Yellow 6" of II/JG52. II./JG52 operated from airfields in Austria (Seyring, Hörsching, Zeltweg) in April 1945. The model was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, weathering with Winsor & Newton artist oils. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel.
  12. Hi guys, actually all my efforts are concentrated on the Tamiya's Tomcat, but this is my entry for the gb. The beautifully molded Fine Molds Savoia S.71 plane, star of the Miyazaki's masterpiece "Porco Rosso". I hope to start soon working on it, for now just the pics of this little gem by Fine Molds. The box the parts ciao Ale
  13. Dear fellow Britmodellers, this is Fine Molds 1/72 Me-410 B1, a commissioned build, with pilot figures but omitting the swastika (on customer's request). Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Photos by Wolfgang Rabel. I replaced the kit decals (who had not aged well) with aftermarket items from Aeromaster. Here, I made a stupid mistake by blindly following the instructions, and placing the Balkenkreuz too far forward. Note that, one the right fuselage side, the squadron letters "3U" should overlap with the white I/D band. Apart from that self-in
  14. After finishing the AMG Bf 109 B, it was time to clean up the workshop before moving on to the next project. There was simply too much dust and clutter scattered around. So after two solid days of effort, here's how it looked. [/url]IMG_6364 IMG_6365 A word of caution; it will never look this good again. Now on the the next model. I needed a conversion to fill out this year's traveling troupe and have always liked the Bf 109 prototypes, particularly the stretched high altitude types. I've already done the 109 T and H, but references to the exceedingly extenua
  15. Fine Molds Bf109G-2/R6. The G-2 was the non pressurised version of the G-1 and was the main production model until they swapped to the G-4. This is one fitted with the R6 modification, which consisted of a pair of MG151 20mm cannons in pods under the wings. This gave a useful boost to the firepower, for shooting down bombers but reduced speed and agility for combatting enemy fighters. The Fine Molds kits are the best kits around for Bf109F/G and K models with similar quality to Tamiya and Hasegawa but you do pay extra for it. Despite their cost, anyone who is a fan of 109's and builds in 1/72,

  17. Greetings, members of the resistance. Fine Molds 1/48 X-Wing has been brutally tickled into a rendition of Luke's ride. Sadly, Revell's decals don't measure up to the eye watering 70 odd beer vouchers indicated on the box being pixilated, stiff and impervious to anything south of a welder's torch, so the markings were rendered in paint. Notwithstanding the decals, the kit's a ton of fun. Bare Metal foil was used for the oleos. Come in Red 5...
  18. Good afternoon. I present to you my recently finished model: Manufacturer: Fine Molds Scale: 1/72 Aircraft: Fine Molds FL14 1/72 Messerscmitt Bf-109G-6 Markings: Bf-109G-6 WNr.440 117 "Yellow 7" 9./JG3, Lt. Stein, april 1944 Colors: - Gunze Sangyo H 68 RLM 74 Dark Gray Semi-Gloss/German Aircraft WW II - Gunze Sangyo H 69 RLM 75 Gray Semi-Gloss/German Aircraft WW II - Gunze Sangyo H 418 RLM 78 Light Blue Semi-Gloss/German Aircraft WW II
  19. My first completion of 2017. Sounds great, eh? Not when I haven't previously completed a build since 2015 it doesn't . Anyway, this was done to get a model built and to kick my lack of motivation in the bum. Seems to have worked, and I'm quite pleased with the result. This is the Fine Molds kit, and was a joy, with the exception of the transfers. I found them very sensitive to everything I normally do, so had to be very careful. Tamiya paint and Ammo by Mig panel line washes. The base (cheap, and from Walmart) will be finished at some point. Less waffle, more piccies:
  20. Good afternoon. I present to you my recently finished model: Fine Molds FL 11 1/72 Bf-109G-10 8./JG 3 Oblt. Gunther Grossjohan, march 1945. I use the following colors when painting: Gunze Sangyo RLM 76 H417 Tamiya RLM 81 XF-51/2 + XF-64/1 Gunze Sangyo RLM 83 H423
  21. Well, she's finally done: And finally a couple shot with a different lens that should be a better approximation of what a human eye sees looking at one of these: A really nice base kit, noticeably enhanced by the Fine Molds white metal parts. Thanks for looking! bestest, M.
  22. There tend to be too much blue'ish light in my kitchen this early in the day, but I suppressed the blue a little as a post effect on the images, and hopefully the photos should look ok. Edit: Hrm, nope. Too much blueish lighting here. Have to go take some new photos. This model was airbrushed with Vallejo Air colors (USAF Light Gray and Nato Black). I used Humbrol Clear for the gloss coats (psi should ideally be at 5-6 I think). The four layers of gloss coat is ofc "hidden" by the final layer of Vallejo Matte varnish (diluted 50/50 with thinner). I'll post some more images later
  23. Note: The Ready for Inspection thread can be found here. I think this one should be fairly quick to complete. The finish should end up looking great, now that I can use an airbrush. The fine molds kit comes with paint masks, something I have never used before. It didn't work well when I made my Tie fighter model, painting it with a brush over the masks, but now, I have an airbrush and I suspect that the result will be perfect. I think I only have to make sure there is enough adhesive on the masks, so that paint isn't blown in underneath the masks. Fyi, the paint masks is simply a single sti
  24. Fresh off the bench, Fine Molds Me-410 A1... A very nice little kit with just a few annoying fit issues and decals that are practically unusable, it was the first proper test of my new airbrush (H&S Evo CRplus) and it passed with flying colours! Built along side my F-4E for the Vietnam group build, primed with Stynylrez white and painted with Xtracrylix, which seem to be by far the best match for authentic RLM colours, the only really tricky part of the build is the 3 piece canopy which seemed to take ages to get right, im more than happy with the finished model though and its satisfied
