  1. As seen at the International Air Tattoo, Greenham Common 1986. Build thread HERE for those interested in the Flightpath detailing set. Revell 1/32 kit with Flightpath detail set, Paragon ejection seats, AMS resin nose, Hobbydecal probes and a variety of deliberately obtuse decal sets! I was really disappointed with the decals, really put me off finishing the model. You can't really make it out from the photos, but most of the stencils and insignia went on rubbish. A real labour of love like most Revell big-scale aircraft, phinally phinished with phl
  2. Time to start something new. Something a bit more demanding than those kits that I have been working on recently. So I have chosen Revell's fantastic 1/32 Tornado GR1 with lots of lovely aftermarket as follows:- Flightpath UK's Tornado Detail and Conversion Set, Flightpath UK's Flaps, Slats and Spoilers set, Aires resin Afterburners, Aires resin Cockpit, Flightpath's LGBs and AIM-9s, Master Probes, SAC's metal undercarriage, including the supplementary set, and Eduard's canopy mask set. So, without further ado, the obligatory box shot:- And the aftermarket:-
  3. I returned to modelling in the late 80's and several years later, this kit and update set was one of my early larger scale purchases. It has been in and out of the stash several times since then, but being a slow builder, combined with the complex Flightpath detail set I have tended to shy away from starting it. Anyway I thought that this group build would be the ideal opportunity to get this one out and build it. I may run out of time but let's see how far I can get with it, and one thing I can say with confidence is that once I make a start, it will be finished. Anyway, here are
  4. This is one I have been waiting a long time to do - maybe this time I will finally do it! I suppose I have a bit of a history with the Airfix Lancaster kit. I got my first one as a Christmas present just after it first came out back in 1958 – it cost 7/6 or 37.5p in those days! Several years later I saw an article in Airfix Mag where the Lanc was converted into a Manchester so I bought another of the original Lancs, and converted it using balsa wood and plastic wood ( I had no proper filler in those days). Then, as suggested in the article I used the redundant outer Merlins to c
  5. Hi folks, [This was originally part of the first Tornado Group Build back in 2008, hence the various references to deadlines and finish dates!] Here's the project: Aftermarket stuff: I have a lot of Flightpath stuff - the conversion and detail set, TIALD and ALARMs. Also, not pictured is the GBU-24 RAF version with the windmill fuse tail. I also have the indispensable Paragon seats, and the flaps and slats set. Decals from Fantasy Printshop - 18 to choose from. Too many choices! I have so little idea what to do i
  6. Time I picked this up again (as several of you have hinted in not entirely subtle ways of late...) It's been 6 months since I last did anything to this model, so some of you might not even be aware of it. If so, I hope you have some spare time, because if you are really interested you have a mere 103 pages of build log to get through... "Fill yer boots" as they say in the Navy. The original build has already walked through: a. the back story (I ditched this aircraft in July 1988, flying from Ark Royal just outside the mouth of the Med); b. t
  7. As my ludicrously long Sea Vixen build finally shows signs of drawing to a close, thoughts turn to what to build next. I always try to have two things on the go at any one time, with the other being my never-ending Ark Royal build - but there is a limit to how much 1/350 scratch building and detailing I can stand at any one time, and I need to have something in 1/48 (my aircraft scale of choice) to keep me going. I thought about a twin Buccaneer build - an Anti-Flash White S1 and an Ark Royal (4) final commission S2D. Those will come at some point, since I have the kits and the necessary conve
  8. This is a kit I have always wanted to build. I am the lucky owner of the Airfix twin kit so I wanted to be able to show this amazing airtcraft as best I could. I have decided to depict an aircraft from 208Sqn whilst it was on the Red Flag exercises in the 1970's The Buccaneers had never been seen by the Americans and during the exercise the RAF re-defined to the hosts what low level flying was. Ity was a superlative display of low level fast flying. Not one Buccaneer was intercepted! The kit has its issues, but forms a superb basis for super detailing, so here it goes! I wanted to show an Eng
  9. Hi folks, been away a while. Back again to answer the call that we need more Phantoms! The Flightpath set is interesting as it supplies new PE wheelwells, jetpipes and nozzles, stabilator slats, metal gear legs and new correctly sized wheels. It doesn't contain any cockpit details as they were going to release a separate set but didn't do it in the end. Also using True Details seats, Eduard placard set, and AMS Resins nose (on order!) Also will be using IsraDecals stencils - these stencils are scaled for the Tamiya kits, so may turn out too much trouble. The projec
  10. Wasn't sure whether to post this here or in WWII Aircraft, but this seemed the best option. I'm trying to build the Flightpath RAF Type D bomb trolley (operative word being trying!) and I'm stuck. The instructions are pretty vague and I've struggled to find a photo that shows the area I'm having trouble with. The instructions state to "form and fit part 2 into the rebates in part 1 (the chassis) fit parts 3 into part 2, adding the cast spring into the recessed areas provided in part 2" I can see the rebates in part 1, but from there I'm stuck. My question is does part 2 form an inverted 'L' s
  11. Thanks to everyone who has followed my WIP for this model. Well its finished at last. For those viewing this for the 1st time: This is the Airfix 1:48 kit, a challenge as many of you know. I have built this model to represent a specific aircraft flown during Red Flag 1977. The Buccaneer force astounded all our allies during this exercise. Not one was intercepted by any aircraft throught the time they were out there. The ultra low level flying astonished our allies and all the spectators. Thiswas an amazing show of flying skill in which this aircraft, the 'flying brick' was the only aircraft i
  12. Hi all, Firstly I must admit that isn't quite finished. But this has now taken over five months and I think this is the best place to put it. Build thread is HERE (Merv "Spike7451" Milliken memorial build) This one's for you Merv, RIP. The build is from the Revell 1/32 Tornado IDS/ECR/RAF versions (I used the remnants of four different part-built kits to make this!) and both the current and old Flightpath super detailing sets. I also used Flightpath's flaps and slats set. Decals were a motley mishmash of Revell, Eurodecals, Xtradecals, Kinetic (Hawk kit) and homemade. I also scratchbuilt a
  13. This'll be my entry: Photo credit and © Carl Woodend via Flickr A bang up to date, 31 Sq GR.4, post-Ellamy and Shader-ready! Probably ZA472, as it also has the code number 031. Don't know if it has the TARDIS upgrade, but it will for this build! There's a lot of work to be done as I have the Flightpath detail set and flaps set, plus all the other complications of making a 1/32 Revell kit (seams, soft detail, dodgy structures etc) © raf.mod.uk It'd help me if anyone could identify the store on the nearest pylon. Otherwise it'll be the standard Sky Shadow like the one in the background. Che
  14. Here are some pictures of a Matchbox H.P. Victor K2 converted with the Flightpath conversion to a B1. The kit is quite big. It was also a difficult conversion. The engine pods were totally from resin. The model is quite heavy. It took loads of elbow grease and filler to tame it. I made this one for a friend in Engeland. He will pick the model up at Telford. Cheers,
  15. Welcome to the lesson on how not to build the Revell Tornado. I've taken the plunge and started my first build thread, don't expect regular updates, because I don't have nearly enough time to devote to modelling as I'd like to But, I will endeavour to see this through to the end, this may result in a finished model or a pile of plastic lying at the bottom of the wall it's just been launched at. Any hoo, as the title suggest's here's what I'll be using, Closer look at the Flightpath set, Where I'm at to date It'll be converted to a GR4, and if I can find current pictures of a GR4 c
  16. Hi Folks, This is the finished article - only took me 5 months. Unfortunately the Tornado groupbuild was just 4 months Build thread exists again, it's HERE Since i saw the pics i realised i'd missed a couple of blade antennae and the aircon hoses for the crew seats. They are now on! The wire support in the canopy is just so I don't have to glue it in place. This was (near enough) the 617 Sqn 60th Anniversary plane (AJ-T "It's Show Time") - very simple as the Squadron was actually fighting in Op Telic on the anniversary date. I believe this aeroplane was previously called "Rects Co
  17. Hi all, Here's my take on the very nice Revell 1/32 kit of this big ugly beast. It's actually a very good kit, the best large scale Revell kit I've ever made. Which is high praise indeed! I used the Flightpath detail set, Verlinden equipment bays and 30mm cannon, and scratch built loads of extra details. I received the kit for free, part built and without any instructions or decals. I got the instructions off the internet and made decals using my home computer. The subject is the flight leader's aircraft from A Company, 1st Battalion, 101st Aviat
  18. Hi everyone, After the last Revell Hawk I made, I swore I would never build another one. This is it.* Built using Eduard cockpit set with Flightpath access ladder and FOD covers. Painted in quite thick coats of enamel black and Zero Clear Coat varnish. Scratchbuilt RBF tags and vortex generators from litho plate and plastic card. Had a couple of near-disasters with the gloss coat, but it turned out alright, smooth and shiny! Decals and stencils were from Alley Cat and are excellent quality. *EDIT* forgot to mention CMK MB10 seats, great product! Oh yeah, and it was b
