  1. Fujimi 1/72 BAe Harrier GR.3 #7A-B4 I thought that, rather than my usual Japanese dominated Stash Clearances, I'd do something a bit more unusual with a kit and colour scheme rarely, if ever, seen. According to Scale Mates, this kit was first moulded in 1983 and subsequently reboxed in 2008. This is the original boxing. Built OOB, save for a harness from Tamiya tape and aftermarket decals. The inbox decals are firstly for 1417 Flight and the second for No.223 OCU in the standard camo scheme of the time Dk Green/Dk Sea Grey/Light Aircraft Grey. I also had Modeldecal S
  2. One GB I've been really looking forward to, with a smidge of poetic license. On the August 15th 30 Bf 110's were shot down, they had been used for high altitude bomber escorts. However, were easy pickings for the RAF's fighters, when Herman Göring ordered the fighting to stay with the bombers. My plan is to build a diorama of the picture below, using the Tamiya Spitfire kit and Fujimi bf110 kit. The Bf 110 will be straight and level with the starboard engine on fire, with the pilot getting into a position to bail out. I'm using Montex masks for the can
  3. It's been something like four months since my last RFI. During that time, I retired, packed up my workshop and stash, sold my house in Alabama, and moved to Madison, Wisconsin! I had the good fortune of finding a place with a spare bedroom in the finished lower level, which I converted into a bigger, better workshop . I have also hooked-up with the local IPMS group (Mad City Modelers), which is very active and has a quite a few highly-skilled builders among its members. Mad City Modelers is doing a group build on the theme "Vietnam", with models due to be shown at this month's meeting. Not
  4. Just finished this one eventually after having it half built on the shelf for months concentrating on the other WW2 diorama, Very happy with the end result though Fujimi garage accessories, and Aoshima 1/24 scale MGB
  5. Evening all This is my attempt at '332700' - a Bf109K-4 of JG27, found unserviceable by the allies at Wunstorf in April 1945, along with many other aircraft types, apparently including 18 other Bf109s, four Fw190s, two Ju88s and an Italian SM75 transport, mostly in various stages of 'dismantlement' - is that a word? The Fujimi kit went together well, using a Montex mask set (the Hakenkreuze are decals) and finished mainly with Vallejo and some Mig acrylics. There is a bit of calculated guesswork on the colours, but I went with the consensus, which seems fairly well d
  6. I'm more at home in the armour or the diorama section, but every now and again I build an aircraft or 2. The insignia on both builds are done using paint masks, both aircraft were washed with flory grime. be gentle,
  7. #15/2020 My dad wanted to build the good old Fujimi 110 now for a while. It can´t keep up with the newer Eduard and Dragon offerings but still makes a nice model. Decided to do an exotic scheme. Used parts from a True Details resin cockpit, EZ Line for the antenna wires and brake lines, decals from LF Models, nose MGs from the sparesbox, camo done with Gunze H67 RLM65, Tamiya XF-60 Dark Yellow, XF-64 Red Brown and XF-58 Olive Green. Build thread here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235073364-under-new-management148-messerschmitt-bf110c-4-royal-yugoslav-air
  8. My dad acquired a liking for 110s at the moment. So after starting the Iraqi one he will soon start a Yugoslav one. This aircraft changed ownership after it´s crew made a navigation mistake and landed in Yugoslavia instead of Bulgaria, a week before the German invasion in Yugoslavia. The crew was detained and the 110 received VVKJ markings and camo. Gonna use the good old Fujimi kit DSC_0006 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr using LF Models decals for the markings DSC_0007 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr and pimping it with a True Details cockpit
  9. My latest completed.... Well I did actually finish this a couple of weeks ago but I'm terrible at pointing the camera at my models for some reason. Good at pointing the camera at real planes whenever I see them, funny that! German Air Force Alpha Jet 41+39 JBG43 NATO Tiger Meet - Kleine Brogel 1985 This is the Fujimi 1/72 kit. It has some nicely represented panel lines but in other areas comparable to old Matchbox kits. Extremely basic cockpit & very thick clear one piece canopy. I did have a Pavla vacform canopy intended for the Heller kit but in the end
  10. Here's one I completed a couple of weeks ago. Used Airwaves seats and decals from Starfighter decals as a Desert Storm machine. Cheers 20200630_144825 by bryn robinson, on Flickr 20200630_144831 by bryn robinson, on Flickr 20200630_145019 by bryn robinson, on Flickr 20200630_162409 by bryn robinson, on Flickr 20200630_144751 by bryn robinson, on Flickr 20200630_144713 by bryn robinson, on Flickr
  11. Hello All, I have had this one on the back-burner for years. I have finally decided, what with the FIAT 500 nearly done and another couple of cars nearing completion as well, to resurrect this one. It's the Fujimi 1/24 246 Dino. It's one of their 'enthusiast' kits, meaning loads of fiddly tiny parts. I have already done a couple of the Porsche enthusiast kits and apart from a few niggles, they went together well. I just wish I knew where I had put them in the loft for safe keeping. I started it a while ago and then put into storage, where it got forgotten for a long while
  12. With the Lincoln done, it's time to make a serious start on the Scout. I've started with the old Fujimi 1/50 Westland Wasp kit, which isn't too bad in outline but is low on detail. As many here will know, the Wasp differs from the Scout primarily in the undercarriage and rear tail areas. I've removed the offending undercarriage support areas and antenna lump from the lower fuselage and cut the rear part of the fin away (saw disc on the Dremel works wonders!). Unfortunately, it's left a rather ragged hole which I'm going to have to fill after joining the
  13. I built this a while ago, but never got around to photographing the finished kit, so here is it. It's the old Fujimi 1/72 scale A-6A Intruder. It was built straight from the box using the kits original decals. It went together really nicely with very little filler needed. Back in the 80's Fujimi were my favourite kits. I used Vallejo Model Air paints. Hope you like the pictures. And for those that are interested here's the link to the build -
  14. I picked this kit up last year but upon opening the box was a bit disappointed. I found to be much simpler than I was expecting, more akin to a scaled up 1/24 kit. Anyways, in looking to distract myself from the pair of B-25s lingering on my bench I decided to give it a whirl. One of the first things I noticed when I opened the box is that the kit uses stickers instead any decals for the various markings as well as the IP. Starting with the engine and front drivetrain, I noticed a fair bit of flash as well as odd marks in the moul
  15. I started this model on the weekend, oblivious of the GB. But before I omit such a gorgeous plane I thought it is better I just post an entry and ask for forgivess later. It will be mostly an OOB, although I may slap some aftermarket decals on the plane. @rob85 please confirm if this level of work is acceptable for the entry.
  16. Hello all, my final build for this GB is the Fujimi IJN Matsu. This was very kindly sent to me by @PeterB last week. He has told me that the model is a bit of a hybrid, as it does not have a rounded transom, but a squared-off one which was on the later Tachibana class, and has the bridge and foremast of the early Matsu class. I will build it as it comes in the box, so it will be a Matsu-ish. Anyway, the box and contents: Note that there are not too many parts! The instructions look to be well drawn, and with English text:
  17. Big thanks to Rui Silva for creating a GB Banner that include all the nordic countries. By asking for it and promising to participate in the GB makes me obliged to get a F-16 out of the stash and give it a go. It's been quite some time since I built and finished my last kit but I'll give it a try. The subject is a F-16A, pre-MLU, Fujimi 1/72 kit. The Norwegian F-16s have a rather simple camo, and weathering is also not that prominent due to regularly cleaning . The decals does not include the squadron fin flashes so I probably will manage without. Otherwise my squadron of choice would have be
  18. I've got tired of Japanese airplanes in the same color schema (dark green/IJN grey) so decided to do something different. This is old kit from the 80s. Kit was ok, panel lines were lightly recessed - should've probably rescribe them but I didn't want to put much accent on it anyway. I thought it would look better in plain orange color. First time I've tried to use pre-shading on a model - I thought it would look nice with orange color. Also first time I painted anything orange. I used black color for pre-shading but probably would have needed to use grey - it took me 6-7 coats of orange
  19. Hello, Here's my just finished 1/72 Fujimi A-4E Skyhawk. I used Armycast decals (very nice!) to do it as an ex-US Navy A-4E with 110 Squadron in 1973, before it got the extended tailpipe and DEFA guns. I added some M117's from Brassin on the MER on the centreline, the LAU-10's on the wings are from the kit. The green, brown and grey are Humbrol, the sand color is ModelMaster. Thanks for looking, I hope you like it.
  20. My RF-4C is finished. I'm not 100% happy with this (when am I?), tied weathering with oils for the first time on an aircraft with mixed results. Having said that, this model has sat part built for at least 15 years (maybe even 20), and the kit itself dates from 1985! So all things considered I suppose I shouldn't be too critical. It's a definite 4 footer, doesn't look too bad sat on the shelf next to the far superior Revell RF-4E. This marks the 6th completed kit of 2020 for me! Decals are Xtradecal and depict a bird from the 1st TRS, 10TRW based at RAF Alcon
  21. Back in around 1970 I came across the Japanese 1/700 scale waterline ship series, which was a collaboration between 4 of the main Japanese kit makers – Aoshima, Fujima, Hasegawa and Tamiya, intended to produce examples of just about all classes of ships operated by the IJN during WWII. Initially each company was allocated a particular class and built at least 2 - one early and one late version. In the case of smaller classes such as Carriers and Battleships they usually built the whole lot. Later they introduced a small number of British, German and US ships, and other companies jo
  22. I'll bet we've all built a dog of a kit once or twice in our modeling lifetimes. You know the kit that everyone disparages? The one you've read described as "unbuildable"? Yeah, that kit. Well, this is one of those I guess. I bought this old Fujimi 1/48 kit at a model close-out at a Michael’s craft/hobby store many years ago. Since I only paid a few dollars for it, when I finally got around to building the plane I decided to try a bit of customizing. The build was quite a while ago now. The exhausts were originally molded into the fuselage sides. These were cut out, the
  23. Hi everyone. This will be my contribution to the GB. It’s a recent release of Fujimi’s A-4m by Hobby 2000. Decals are from cartograph which will be a big improvement over Fujimi’s decals. It also comes with painting masks made from black vinyl which are like Montex masks. I will start this after the P-51 GB. Cheers Allan
  24. I have been on a Spitfire building binge. Here is a quick conversion of the 1/72 scale Fujimi FR XIVe kit to a FR XVIII. The kit comes with an enlarged rudder and short of pulling out some calipers to take measurements, simply eyeballing and comparing it to the the Aeroclub and MPM rudders, it looked right and I thus decided to leave it alone. The main mod was drilling the 2 ventral camera ports under the fuselage. I did not mess with the wing panel lines . The build was actually very straight forward and fun. I used the excellent book "Spitfires in the Sun" as my reference for markings to bui
  25. Here is my 1/72 Phantom FGR.2 XV423 "D", 23. Squadron RAF, RAF Stanley, Falkland Islands 1983/84. Old Fujimi kit made "out of the box", except resin ejection seats (Pavla) and Sidewinders (Eduard). Decals are based on Print Scale`s 72-285 set. Thanks for watching!
