  1. Seen as we have a long build period for this GB I'm going to do a RNZAF Corsair. This was flown by my Uncle in the Islands during the later part of the war and will complete my Pacific fighters collection.
  2. This is my backup project because the Ju 88 is rather a big project. it is a Bf 110D Dackelbauch which escorted the Heinkels in the Northern raids on August 15th. I might change the codes as I don't have evidence that this particular plane was on the raid.
  3. Now this allows my own thread I can do some images in the morning. I'm doing a Revell / Monogram Ju 88A-1. It will use several resin addons to convert it from an A4 to A1. It gets new ailerons, wingtips, engines and canopy from Aires. Eduard PE and some masks. Masters brass gun barrels. Maybe home made decals. This will be great fun as after doing the Ju 188A-1 I know the kit quite well.
  4. This is my He 111 H-4 project that I'm finishing here as approved. This won't go into the Galley, but there will be finished images in this thread. I have been working on this for maybe a year. There have been lots of ups and downs in the build. Here is the link to the WIP build thread. This is a model of a KG 26 plane that was in the 15th of August northern raids. It was shot down into the sea, but the crew survived. The plane is an H-4 which carried the torpedo's on external racks. To achieve this I have used the ICM He 111H-3 kit and taken the external bomb ra
  5. Hi all,Picked up a few of these 28mm metal figures from Elite Miniatures(Australia),They are all Claymore Miniature Castings.It's slim pickings down here not much on the local market,and I'm not to sure about buying anything from overseas,I have a few of these figures from a earlier purchase,I was so impressed by them I had to have some more,the detailing in something so small is great,these are a real pleasure to paint,Some are primed,some base painted,and some are getting the fine detailing.All are being painted with Acrylics. Cheers Jim.
  6. The photos of the kit box and contents are in this post https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235070764-spitfire-prototype-cmr-and-spitfire-prif-airfixairkit-172nd-scale/ as TempestV asked me to separate my builds which is fair enough. limited progress has been made as I am trying to finish my Mach2 Avro York for the Lancaster Group Build. So far I have cleaned most of the parts up and primed them and made a start on the cockpit using the photo etch instrument panel and seat belts and they seemed to fit well. I bought some of the Mig Ammo Ultra Glue for photoetch and
  7. Whilst working for ABRO/DSG in December 2007 I was asked if I would like to go to the British Army Training Unit at Suffield, Alberta, Canada for three months winter repair season. I left the UK on 2nd January 2008 on a 24 hour trip to Medicine Hat the nearest town to Suffield with an airport. We were put up in the Medicine Hat Lodge hotel as there was insufficiant housing on the camp and we travelled dailly, the journey taking about 3/4 of an hour each way. Towards the end of the three month deployment I was asked to stay on in Canada as part of the year round support to the BATUS training fl

    Hi Chaps, With great enthusiasm i plan to join this Saab Viggen STGB masquerading as the Scandinavian group build under the New Nordic title. Although i have an Airfix Viggen at the bottom of the stash, I shall endeavour to turn the Special Hobby Viggen into something approaching trickyrich's efforts in the Specialist GB last year. I bought this from Hannants in 2017 so was able able to compare it to the Tarangus kit which was significantly more expensive. Lucky I did because it is the same kit! Another great reason to support your local hobby shop. My last S
  10. My Academy Buchon has arrived. I will be doing it as one of the Battle of Britain Bf 109s. I'm still waiting for the decals to arrive. If I get time I will get a start on it soon. I'm deciding whether to get the G6 PE for it as the cockpit detail in the kit is a bit sparse. I will put up photos later today.
  11. Happy not quite Christmas from me to me. Don't really know what if any kits have been bought for me by family beyond an Airfix Victor (because I had to order it), so I got myself something suitable for the GB. Masking set also bought of course. I also may have just ordered a Tamiya 1/48 V1 on next day delivery because I needed a paint and well Amazon won't ship paints on their own and I may have needed airbrush cleaner, the local wargaming store stopped selling that and my trip there just to get some ended in 20 quid of other purchases...... A productive day for getting modelli
  12. This will be my second attempt at doing this P 40-N RNZAF Gloria Lyons 1/48 model. Last time I got distracted by some Zero's. This time there is no distraction here. Hopefully I will get it done. It is a Hasegawa kit. I once had a RC plane I painted as it see below.
  13. Hi Chaps, I've been looking forward to the Night fighter Group build for a while. This kit was almost stated last year for the 1960 NATO GB and again it just missed the 1950 NATO GB in January. So 3rd attempt to start will commence when my 2 Hawks in the Training Group build are done. Not decided the scheme yet but I have plenty of choice. Colin W
  14. Hi Chaps Now for something completely different. How about one of these for your front line defence? I got this from Victoria Hobby centre in Melbourne Australia in January 2003 when I was there for the Avalon air show. It's been lurking in the stash for 15 years so this GB will be it's moment in the sun. The parts It looks pretty easy so the hard part might be the silver finish and the canopy. The canopy is currently taped to the window using the glorious Thailand sun to make it clear again. The canopy also has a dent and I found
  15. I have decided to start a new thread for my Frog Blenheim Mk-1. I have removed images from the Typhoon tread and put them here. This is an old Frog Russian kit that was totally covered with flash. I spent a lot of time removing it and digging out the engines. This is the result. I have also used the Eduard PE in the cockpit. This was for the Airfix kit. There is also some resin parts in there too and a scratch built back wall. This is the main parts together with my first attempt of scribing. The first wing side was terrible the last side was ok. I learnt a few things al
  16. I intend to build this one more or less out of the box, I have an Accurate Armour resin crew to man it and I may or may not use the Bronco individual link tracks I have in the stash. Here are the obligatory box pictures I intend to build this along side a 1/72 Mosquito so this will be a slow build Thanks for looking more soon Roger
  17. As I have run out of time to do justice to Gloria I have decided to do the Oscar instead. This will be a faster build and at the same time give me a bit more experience before I do Gloria on the main forum. This plane operated in Burma so should fit in here. If it doesn't that is ok as I will build it anyway and just finish up my Zero and call it a day here. Rich could you let me know if it fits.
  18. Hi Chaps I think this won't be too unusual as there's at least 3 other builds of the Tamiya Tomcat on here already. The Tomcat has always been a favourite aircraft of mine so when this was announced I dropped the long term plan to build the 1/32 kit and decided to go this way. Not long after the GB was announced I saw the kit in M Workshop in Singapore so picked it up and managed to not build it yet. Here's the scheme I am planning to do. VF2 on the back of my USS Enterprise in 1977. The situation today Being a Tamiya kit I wasn't goin
  19. I need something easy to do right now, so I thought I would do an Tamiya A6M3 Zero. 1/48 Scale. This will be out of the box with only PE seat belts. I thought I had started it , but it seems I haven't. I will have a go at doing a Solomons scheme with the green sprayed patches over it. I did an RC plane Like that. This should be the only challenge for this kit.
  20. Hi all I would like to know whether a P38 would be legible for this build I am on kind of a roll and have the academy kit no 2215 in the stash it has been glaring at me for ages.I plan to build it out of box with no aftermarket decals. Regards: Shaun
  21. Hi all.Having recently returned to the hobby I now find myself having dismally failed at my first attempt at a group build but it would seem that I have in the meantime shall we say re hit my stride and will gladly try my hand at this group build seeing as I have a bit under a month and that the Roden bristol is supposedly a good kit that goes together rather snazily(on Roden standards anyways). So if you guys would have me then well here is the kit and proof of incompleteness: I should get cracking by late tonight and failing that tomorrow mor
  22. Next project so I have something to build while the MkIVs are in the paint and finishing phase. Expunging the WW1 bug, for now at least. I think I have a couple of armoured cars in me somewhere and I'm waiting to see how the after market for the CSM Lanchester develops. I believe some WW1 trucks are in the offing in plastic too, although I don't really "do" softskins. So this is a double build of the Meng riveted-turret FT17 and the HobbyBoss Schneider CA with additional armour. Limited after market parts here. I think the FT will be an MG version, French if I can f
  23. Well having almost completed my Hawker Fury I'm going for something a bit more symbolic of the RAF 100 years with a Puma. This low profile always there but never seen Helicopter has now been in service for 47 years having joined up in 1971. Destined to remain in service until 2025, only the Hercules and Canberra will have served longer. Although based on the age of individual air frames the Puma may have the edge. So despite 47 years of sterling service we still don't have a 1/48 scale kit. Another F16 anyone? To fill the void in the RAF 100 line up I shall therefore be building the venerable
  24. Hi Chaps, I have been a bit spoiled for choice for this GB as the subject is so wide and there are so many potentials. After building a Hunter (for the BM10 GB) and a Hurricane (Hawker GB) I've decided to continue the theme and do the Fury. I see JB is already making a Fury and there is an excellent build by Tomoshenko elsewhere on BM so this has inspired me to build a biplane. I have refrained from starting before today but I confess to having had the parts out and starting to clean off the mass of flash and misaligned mould lines. Someone said in the Hawker GB that its best to
  25. Hi Chaps This is my second GB for the year as I am well advanced with a Hawker Hunter FR10 in the Britmodeller 10th anniversary GB. I usually have 2 models on the go so I can tinker with one while I'm waiting for something to dry on the other. I picked this kit up last month in Singapore having read the review on Hyperscale last year. I have to say I am very impressed with the and the level of detail is not far short of the 1/24th scale Hurricane I made 20 years ago. That includes the engine which is about the only difference. So in good tradition despite having 20 years worth of kits in
