  1. The beginning of an xmas present. 1/32 revell tornado gr1 gulf war. 10 hours in so far.
  2. Hi all, I'm new to the group, but have looked over some of the outstanding builds that have been posted previously, and in awe at the skill levels evident! This has partly been my inspiration to have a model commissioned, by a work colleague, of the first aircraft I ever worked on in the RAF once out of training, a 54 Sqn Jaguar. I have elected to go with the 1:48 Kittyhawk kit, despite the described flaws, simply because of the availability of extra detailing sets. I've already bought the aircraft tug, avionics bay, RAF diorama set and cockpit set, and lo
  3. If there is any place on the web that could help an RAF virgin then this should be it as I normally frequent US modelling sites and have only ever built US aircraft. I'm working on a 1/32 Tomcat but I have a 1/32 GR1 Tornado lined up for the next project. I've managed to get the CAM resin equipment bay set and the Aires IDS cockpit set, but decals seem difficult to obtain. Ideally the standard camouflage grey/green scheme. Any pointers, advice?
  4. Hey guys, just an update on one of my latest builds. An Airfix Harrier GR1 in Norwegian winter camo colours. I've only seen a painting of a GR1 in winter camo and a small grainy picture on an Xtradecal sheet. It's not finished yet. I used the normal dark sea grey and green combo, then applied some maskol over the green then white washed over the green. The majority of the Harriers that I've seen in this colour scheme were GR3's - their whitewash in tatters. Still have to do the decaling (does anyone know if they would remark the stencil data on over the white wash? If you could let me know I'd
  5. Harrier Harvest, I was going to go with Harrier Hernia but that doesn't sound quite so exciting! Here is another booby type build followed on from here; http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234964850-wip-booby-harrier-gr3-airfix-172/?view=findpost&p=1694841 This time BOOBS is an abbreviation of Built Out Of Boxed Sets. Airfix harrier Gr1 x3 Airfix Harrier Gr3 Italeri Harrier Gr3 Hasegawa Av8-a Eduard zoom etch for Gr1 x2 and for Gr3 x1, Master models pitots for Gr1x3 and for Gr3x1, Pavla seats for Av8a x2, Pavla Aden gun pods for harriers x2, attack squadron Mk 7
  6. Morning all! I've always rather liked the Gulf War Tornado ZA465- otherwise known as Foxy Killer and so it would have been absurd if I was to pass up the opportunity to model this fabulous example of British aviation. Kit: Revell 1:72 Tornado Gr.1 (From my LMS- Mike's Models) Extras: Print Scale- Tornado Gr.1 Gulf War nose art (From Hannants) -Scratchbuilt RBF tags made from paper and FOD covers made from tissue paper. Paints Used: Vallejo: Black, White, Medium Olive, Barley Grey, Red. The "Desert Pink" colour was created from a variety of Vallejo paints mixed together. AK Interactiv
  7. Hello everyone and also hello 2014. Quick update: 2013 was the year I started modeling again after a 30 year hiatus. I managed five builds last year when Real Life reasserted itself. So this one was started last year, but is my first finished build for 2014, and my 6th build in total. Ooh! All those maths classes weren't wasted! Sadly, during the last 5 months Real Life meant I didn't have much time for poking my nose in here. Slacker I am! So here we have a Jaguer GR1, Johnny Fartpants, in my very vague approximation of its Op Granby scheme. Artistic license applied by me as usual.
  8. Hi all. even though I have plenty of Harriers on the stash and just finished a 48th GR3. I happened upon the Revell 1/32 Harrier GR1. and I could not resist as this seems a great size for the Harrier. I wondered if there has ever been any aftermarket parts or decals made for this. Or if anyone has any tips for the build. I can see she represents the Early Harrier GR1 with Kestrel style fairings on the front thrusters and Kestrel style intakes. I recently discovered this type referred to as P1127 (RAF) which was apparently an early version of the GR1 which was more similar to the Kestrel is
  9. Following Rob P's wee challange for a head to head build off, I started construction of mine tonight. First impressions when I opened the box earlier were pretty good. Airfix have taken some of the good points of the GR7/9 kit and used similar ideas on this one. They've also made the panel lines a lot finer than on the earlier kit. The decal sheet is outstanding, with the 20 Sqdn bars in perfect register on my copy. I'll be using some Vingtor Harrier Conversion Unit badges to make XV758 as I'll be finishing my Fujimi GR1 as XV778 of 1 Sqdn, so I don't want to duplicate things. Anyway, on with
  10. I started this build when this kit was first released, but only finished it about 2 months ago. I scratchbuilt a few extra details that Airfix omitted, as well as added some semblance of the harness to the seat. The details I added were the retractable step on the starboard side, the fuel vent on the same side and the standby VHF aerial on the lower rear port fuselage. I also added the missing strakes on the outrigger wheel fairings and used a Master metal pitot tube to replace the kit plastic one. Decals were mostly OOB, with the serials being cut up and rearranged to get XV758 and the Harrie
  11. Hi all I have kindly been aloud to enter this old kit I got from Telford. I love old kits and I really love Matchbox. The plastic the look the nostalgia its all there I can remember when they were everywhere and at my local paper shop.. Them was the days.......... I also picked up a heller bobcat t4 harrier, a matchbox hunter T7 and with the many old kits I have I am spoilt for choice, I really like this GB and might enter more yet. I have a plasticart Comet 4 That I would love to do as and RAF bird but cant find decals or possible livery options for that one. I may enter Frog Vulcan too ...
  12. Hello!! So, Christmas Day and I can start on something I've been meaning to start for the last few months As in title, this is a GR1 Tornado in a combat setting, I have a 60x60cm board which is hopefully enough to place everything on (I can't go any larger, as the cadet competition I'm hoping to enter it in won't take any larger than that!!). Revell Tornado with a bit of aftermarket for the extra detail and nose replacement (*especially* the nose). Today hopefully I'll get all the flash removal done as there's quite a bit all over the shop. P.S. this is my first WIP, constructive criticism
  13. Well, this one is now finished. Its the Revell GR1 kit converted to a GR4 using Model Alliance decals to recreate the 12 B Squadron 90th Anniversary Jet from 2005. The plane was brush painted using a mix of Humbrol and Revell acrylics, with a Flory Dark Dirt wash applied for panel lines, and a Pitts pen used for oil staining on the ecu doors. Hope you like:
  14. Hi all a few weeks ago I picked up my old Revell Easy Kit tornado for the 90's that i found. It was bought for me as a child. I was already painted in a very bright green with moulded grey plastic and a silver canopy in some anniversary markings with green yellow tail. I looked at it and thought it was in pretty good shape except ive not found the stores yet. I had some humbrol spray can 163 and 27 left and decided to glue it together and paint it just for fun. I think its made a big improvement and nice to see a 1/100 scale tonka. It might not be the most sophisticated model but its the
  15. Well for those guys who have followed my first ever WIP thread, http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=234932336&page=3 and for those that havent, here is my first model Ready For Inspection, and also marks my 100th post on the forum! It has been a learning curve, as this marks a return to modelling, and a first serious (ish) step into the hobby, since the days when I made and painted in a day at the age of 8 or 9. There have been pitfalls such as decal silvering - something that I could just not resolve, so the decal was removed as best as I could, and the
  16. Hi everyone, and welcome to my first ever WIP thread. Its a return to modelling, after making and painting in a day or two - about 25 years ago! I am not going to make any apologies, but this is probably going to have a lot of photos in the thread, not only to document my progress as a first proper project, but also to allow myself to keep a record to identify areas I can improve upon, and develop further for future builds. So, onto the first details, the obligatory (from perusing the forum) box and sprue picture: Excuse the picture quality, I am going to blame photobucket for that. I a
  17. So this is my next project: I really enjoyed building the revell 1:144 tomcat as part of the group build even though it was the (very) old mould, so I thought I try one of their newer kits. First impressions are excellent, there's no flash that I can find and the moulding is amazingly crisp. I think this will be pretty much OOB, although I'm not sure whether to have this in flight possibly releasing one of the LGB's or on the ground, refuelling probe out, with the canopy open.
