  1. This one has been sittting on my Shelf of Doom for a long time so went to task of completing the special scheme it has. It is used for dis-similar air training. The decals were printed by myself and the converted nose and humpback came from Freightdog Models. The kit is from Airfix. Paints were Xtracrlix for the grey and Revell Anthracite for the black. Thanks for looking. Regards Robert
  2. Well, here is my first participation in a group build! Having been "Furloughed" by my employer, the "Leg Iron" decided there was alternative employment available "around the house", thankfully, the council has closed the tip and all non essential shops have also put the shutters up, which left little to do but show her the email from work which stated "You are not to carry out any work"! Awesome! So here she is, my entry in the Group Build! The venerable Revell Lancaster! I`ll only be using the stencils from this decal sheet. Lots of nice grey plastic, I have an Airfi
  3. Very nervous about posting this one its taken me about 4 weeks to get the nerve together, I have knocked together a little stand out of some scrap Perspex sheet mounted onto a 3mm thick Cork base. My first aircraft model in about 30+ years its a 1/72 resin kit by Freight Dog Models. A whatif of the almost finished but scrapped SR-177A a mixed power rocket and jet high altitude interceptor designed to be almost a manned rocket to shoot down Soviet Bombers before they could get to the UK. SR-177 It would have been a hell of a ride for the pilot but Ballistic M
  4. A conversion of the old Matchbox Victor using the Freightdog resin set. In June 1960, the Air Ministry reduced the number of planned Victor B2s from 59 to 24. XM715 was built in the 4th and final batch of 5 airframes which included 714-718. She was assembled at Radlett as a high-level free fall nuclear bomber to carry the Yellow Sun 2 nuclear weapon. She first flew with John Allam at Radlett on 31st December 1962. After a normal Production Flight Test Schedule of 4 flights, she was ready for delivery to the RAF in March 1963. It was normal for squadron crews to go to Radlett and pick up the
  5. When Hawker Aircraft was looking at a two seat Hunter the tandem configuration was considered but rejected in favour of the side-by-side arrangement. Freightdog Models released this conversion kit for the recently released Revell 1/72 Hunter. I have not done a WiP recently so here goes. First the resin pieces, As you can see the forward fuselage has been hollowed cast and the cockpit is well detailed and you get 2 vacform canopies. I made a quick start, joined the Revell fuselage together and then cut off the forw
  6. Hi All, I knew the time would come when I did an Eduard Spitfire. I've had a couple in the stash for a year or so, but all the parts in that huge box scared me off. Eventually I decided that in order to get one done, I needed to decide which airframe to model, then set aside the parts I wouldn't need to use. That way the task would seem more manageable. Whilst I love the Spitfire, I must say that the ubiquitous Mark IX is not top of my list of favourites. The fixed tailwheel detracts from an otherwise sublime shape, so for me the Marks VIII and VII surpass it in the 2-
  7. I had hoped that a group of Swifts would have a special name. There is a pride of lions. A parliament of owls. A load of bobbins (with apologies to Smith and Jones) I mean, just how cool would it have been if I could entitle this thread "a Contrafibularity of Swifts"? But sadly, no.... more than one swift is simply a flock. so... flock it is. Edit: I'm informed that it can be a swoop of Swifts, hence the title change. I'm building two Swifts in this GB. Both are from the 1/72 Airfix kit. The first one is a (pre
  8. Good afternoon. Here is my contribution to Bethpage`s finest products. Hobbyboss`s FM2 Wildcat in 1/48th scale. I will using a Freightdog decalsheet with an aircraft from 794 sqn Fleet Air Arm just after the end of WW2. I have done a small amout of work in cockpit but not significant! will also be using an Ultracast seat which has a Sutton Harness, hope that is okay? Some photos. Regards Grahame.

  10. Well, here's my first completion of 2017, a 612 Sqn Spitfire LF.16 made from the new 1/72 Eduard kit and Freightdog decals. This is my attempt to recreate the only REFERENCE PICTURE I could find on the subject. And since I always like it when folks throw in a bonus at the end of their RFI's, here it is next to an Airfix PR.19 in a scheme from the same Freightdog sheet. The PR.19 is supposed to appear like it's natural metal (Model Master Metalizers), while the LF.16 is supposed to look like aluminum lacquer/high speed silver
  11. Good morning! The postman dropped off the photo-etch pieces this morning so I thought I might as well start So, the base kit will be the old Airfix 1:72 Avro Vulcan, with aftermarket bits including: -Freightdog Resin 201 Series Tailpipes -White Ensign Models (WEM) Vulcan Interior -WEM Vulcan Exterior -WEM Vulcan Bomb Bay This build will be significant for two reasons; first of all, with AS exams starting in two weeks and proceeding over the next couple of months, it will be something to keep me sane! Secondly, it will be the first build where I've already had a go at doing some build-
  12. When Revell released their Halifax a few years ago, I knew immediately that I would build it as L9163, the aircraft which dropped Jozef Gabčík and Jan Kubi into Czechoslovakia to assassinate Reinhard Heydrich. I cannot do justice to their story of incredible heroism and sacrifice, but if you wish to, you can read more here. The kit is not without its problems, but I was fortunate enough to receive a review sample of the excellent Freightdog improvement set, which includes replacement radiators, propellers and wheels. I think it really improves the look of the kit and is well worth investing in
  13. There was a proposal for the Lightning to be used in the Fighter/Ground Attack role, here is my take on it. My thinking on the scheme was because GB still had a presence in the Middle East, something low and fast was needed. I have used the larger tank and 1000lbs bombs and the matra overwing pods from Freightdog Resins, the kit is Airfix. Baremetal foil was used for the nose ring and the pitot tube was replaced with a Master metal one. So far the undercarriage is still supporting the weight of all that extra resin ! Thanks for looking Robert
  14. Latest one finished. Used the decals from the Xtrakit and the belly tank from Freightdog Models. The decals do seem to be the correct size to my eyes. No major problems but the tailplanes are a difficult to get a positive fit. Also the pitot tube was replaced with some Albion Alloy tubing. Painted with Xtracrylix for the DSG/DG and Humbrol Acrylic for the PRU Blue.Special thanks to Jason (Jasman71) who provided the nosewheel assembly as mine went missing in action. *Note, canopy framing amended since photos taken*
  15. Revell hunter F Mk.6/Freightdog practice rounds. 1/72 Kit built before I discovered milliput, I was used to squadron type putty which attacks the plastic, I didn't want to risk damaging the detail on this kit, which I think is excellent, shame because I can't find another one to build, so I have the wing root join which is not so good. Decals were good except the white portion of the roundel/flash is slightly transparent. Freightdog bits. I'm a first time user of this firm, I thought these were so good (excited by ordnance) I bought 2 sets on the first day I saw them. One set may end

  17. This is the 1:72 Academy Thunderbolt finished with Freightdog decals for HD154 of 73 OTU. It is finished in a mixture of Tamiya and Gunze Mr Hobby with Humbrol enamel washes. I built it on the spur of the moment as I fancied something quick and easy, which sums the kit up nicely.
  18. I purchased the Freightdog conversion set for the Revell 1/32 Spitfire when it was first released but took some time to pluck up the courage to start it. The Revell base kit can be a bit challenging anyway as the parts breakdown for the wings is quite a strange design. Coupled with the 1970's moulding technology (this was originally produced by Matchbox) there is, shall we say, "room for improvement". Mods include, Freightdog resin conversion, Greymatters belly tank, Quickboost seat and Barracuda canopy handle from a set I bought for the Tamiya Spitfire XVI. Added detail to the wheel wells,
