  1. Hi guys. Here's my first build in 20 years and first attempt at using an airbrush. I don't really know what I'm doing so any advice, feedback and constructive criticism is apreciated Scalemates Project link Scalemates WIP gallery Practice install piece Press fit into place Supported by a sheet of styrene cemented in underneath which the resin piece is superglued to. Seam removed and polished clear
  2. Evening, all! After building on and off since first lockdown(!) I've finally managed to finish my Hasegawa Harrier, built as GR.9 ZG511/82 as she was during her last deployment to Kandahar. This build was a real labour of love. It's still the best big wing Harrier in this scale in my opinion, but she really fights you along the way. The end result is worth it though. I threw lots of aftermarket goodies at this one. I felt that the subject was worth the effort. Aires cockpit (butchered to more resemble a Brit Harrier) Eduard MB Mk.12 Ejection Seat AlleyCat 100% LERX Eduard TERMA & Sniper pods DJRP from @Shaun (many thanks, again!) Eduard PE Eduard weighted wheels & outriggers Belcher Bits LAU-5003/CRV-7 Pods L'Arsenal PWIV Model Alliance decals This was my first time using Hataka Red line acrylics, and they performed flawlessly. Weathered using Windsor & Newton oils, Flory wash, and sealed with W&N Acrylic varnishes. There was a bit of scratchbuilding and correcting to do to represent a British Harrier. For anyone interested, trials & tribulations can be found on my WIP here. Anyway, here's some pics. Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed building it! C&C welcomed as always. Thanks for looking! Daryl.
  3. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Hasegawa Ju-88 G-1, built from the box, with Schatton metal antennas added. The model was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics, weathered with artist oils. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. This is the latest version of Hasegawa's Ju-88 series, released earlier this year. According to my research, 4R+AK from 2/NJG2, flown by Johannes Strassner, was the only Ju-88 G-1 fitted with the experimental obliquely mounted MG151. The gun barrel comes as a metal part. The prominent exhaust stains, commonly found on G-1 aircraft, was sprayed with Gunze H95 Smoke Grey in several thin layers. Towards the end I added a drop of Black for tonal variation. The squiggle pattern on the upper surfaces were painted freehand. Brake lines are from stretched sprue. Thank your for your interest. Best greetings from Vienna!
  4. Have 4 to choose from in the stash; gone for the one I think I will complete in time with minimal stores. Only AB is Eduard etch (kit pit is very bare); coloured etch which is new to me; help and recommendations on what glue to use to fix folded parts appreciated. Searching for photos of the 2 kit decal options I found the next assignment for 82-1041 was service in the Oregon ANG and a photo showing it weather beaten; which is doable with a mix of kit and SuperScale decals. Bench should be clear for next Saturday. Chris
  5. Hello, Here is my Hasegawa 1/48 A-4N with the Israeli air force. It's OBB, with isradecal. I hope you will like it. Thank for looking.
  6. I will be entering a Republic of Singapore Air Force F-16A for this group build. I'll be using the Hasegawa F-16A kit as a base and adding decals from Siam Scale as well as a metal pitot probe and AoA sensors by Hobby Decal. Some background on this Viper: Back in the mid-1980s, the RSAF purchased a total of 8 F-16s (4 As and 4 Bs) under the Peace Carvin FMS programme. These jets were initially based at Luke Air Force Base in Arizona for pilot training and were subsequently transferred back to Singapore in January 1990. Once the RSAF received their F-16Cs and Ds in the early 2000s, these older jets were donated to the Royal Thai Air Force. Source: RSAF Facebook Mark
  7. I'll be joining with a 'speed build' of the Republic of Singapore Air Force Black Knight. It will be completely OOB. I was just finished with construction of Tamiya F16 when I saw this group build, and thought, well, I need something to do and a reason to finish something from my stash, so... two F16s in a row it will be. After quite a hiatus building models, as well as acquiring them, I seem to have got my mojo back having just finished a X-47B. What I have decided is that while I do enjoy building models, I particularly enjoy finishing them, and like to do the painting and decaling most of all. At the end of the day I put them in my cabinet, and all I need is for them to look good in there. I've therefore decided to only focus on what I see as 'value added' tasks which mean the plane looks good enough on the shelf. So for example, basic cockpit colours are done with a drybrush and black wash. No primer on these small areas. Wheel wells will be also basic colour with a light wash and nothing more. Final finish particularly on top will still follow a standard procedure so the main paint job looks good. I will do this approach for a few kits to thin out the stash, then perhaps pick one to do as a more detailed model. A big help to build this fast will be the lack of weapons and even pylons. A big hindrance is the fact I cannot airbrush at home any more, I don't have a spraybooth, and outside is Dubai summer, 40deg + during the day, and early mornings 99% humidity. Lucky the local hobby shop here has some fantastic spraybooths which can be rented for about 2USD per hour Including compressor and a few tools and alligator clips etc. I hope to finish the basic construction this first weekend and prime and maybe paint next weekend. However, I do have a lot of other models requiring a prime job, so it may just be a priming weekend. Let's see! I did live in Singapore before and certainly saw these aircraft during National Day celebrations. They have a very impressive colour scheme, and I actually acquired this kit in Singapore at a local hobby shop there. My only real concern is going to be getting the white of the paint to match the stars and moon decals, and I'm also worried about the red showing through on the white decals. Any hints or pointers regarding this would be most appreciated. Good luck everyone with your builds and I look forward to following what you all are doing.
  8. Hello guys.This is a double build I did for a customer of mine.I have built both models OOB.I have tinted the canopies and used the least ammount of weathering possible.The painting was done with Hataka have glass followed by several coats of light coats of ak real colors gunship grey.The decals were a pain in the you know what and performed really bad.I had a lof ot problems while applying them.The kit itself is a great one with no issues of any kind durring the assembly. Regards,Dragan

  10. Hello all, Here is my recently completed 1/48 Hasegawa F/A-18E, in the markings of VFA-87 'Golden Warriors' during their Operation Inherent Resolve cruise during 2017. BuNo 168912 shot down a Syrian Su-22 on the 18th June 2017. The build thread is here Extras used included an Aires cockpit, Pavla seat, Steel Beach FOD covers, Furball decals and Steel Beach late style ECS pipes. The GBU-38s, AIM-120s and AIM-9Xs all came from an Academy F-15E kit, and the GBU-32s are from an Academy F-22. I wanted to depict the jet heavily weathered, as seen on many of the machines during the cruise. I used a number of online reference photographs to achieve the look. Beside my VFA-213 jet from the same cruise: Thanks for looking. Dave
  11. Hello to all of you good people.I hope you are doing well.I have just finished this Hasegawa 72 scale F-111C in the colors and markings of the Royal Australian Air Force.I added the eduard PE set in the cockpit as well as the extirior.Painted with Gunze paints and varnished with Vallejo matt acrylic varnish. Regards,Dragan
  12. My entry to this Group Build will be a two-seater Bf 109 G-12. Although I have over fifty Bf 109 kits in the stash, I have only one kit of the G-12, which is a rather old Hobbycraft kit:- Scalemates indicates that this is a reboxing of an earlier kit by the Polish firm Intech:- However, according to Lynn Ritger, in his excellent SAM Publications Guide to the Messerschmitt Bf 109 - Part 2, the Hobbycraft kit is a very poor one. He recommends that the Hobbycraft fuselage can be used, with a Hasegawa G-6 kit providing the wings, the undercarriage, the props and the tailplanes (and probably one of the cockpits, as apparently these are also poor in the Hobbycraft kit.), The Hobbycraft kit does have interesting decal choices - not only the German one shown on the box top, but also Italian (post 1943) and Yugoslav (1950) options. So, I am going to do a kitbash with one of the (many) Hasegawa kits that I have in the stash:- I could, of course, buy one of the more recent AZ kits of the G-12, but that would be too easy (and would add even more to the stash). This way, I reduce the stash by two in one go. However, I have never kit-bashed before, so it should be fun......and a learning experience. I will start later in the week, as rain is forecast from Thursday onwards. Philip

  14. Hi all This is Hasegawa's 1/48 Bf109K-4, finished in the colours of Lt Gunther Landt. Landt was a Staffelkapitan with 11./JG53 and flew the K-4 with some success, although this particular aircraft was lost on 22 Feb 45, in a collision with a P-51. He bailed out, returned to flying and ended the war with 22 victories. Retired to Munich after the war, I believe. There are documented pics of Landt sitting in this particular K-4, although unfortunately, none of them are hi-res colour (), so the colours are my interpretation. I took a couple of pics under different lighting just to see how the colours varied and, well..... Anyway, comments welcome, as ever..
  15. Ok, I'm probably getting in over my head...but being a dual kit just building one doesn't actually open up any additional stash space so.....in we go to the deep end. And with any trickyrich GB, a minimum amount of AM must be included. Whilst just a taste, I hope I've reached the resin minimums. I'll probably be taking this with my on my camping trip and work on some of the sub-assemblies and anything that can be brush painted. All the major painting and finishing work will happen down the road after I've gotten the A-4 and Mustang builds clear of the bench. The tough question is going to be how build them.....wheels up? Or wheels down? I keep going back and forth on this one right now.
  16. I have been blogging this build. This is the Hasegawa 1/48 kit, with some modifications.
  17. I've had this kit in the stash for almost 30 years, it was released by Hasegawa in 1991 when I rushed out to buy it. While it's been waiting patiently in the stash I have obtained an Airies resin and p/e cockpit set and some resin hollow exhausts by QuickBoost for it. Here is the box art and the AM. Here is the obligatory photo of the untouched kit parts. This is my third build in this GB and my first ever Luftwaffe desert build, I have bought some Mr Color RLM 78 and 79 paint so once my other builds are almost finished I can get this started. Thanks for looking, any questions or comments are always welcome.
  18. 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. the planned configuration of the eventual model (RAF Blue Grey paint job, folded tail, folded rotors, engine blanks, lashed down); c. lots of banter with the much-missed Debs (@Ascoteer) about Cold War ASW; d. some basic explanations of rotary-wing aerodynamics (and push-back against the inexplicable myth that Plank-Wing things that go whoosh are more attractive than Useful Aircraft); e. droop stops, what they are for and how to build them from brass; f. a great deal of discussion of rivets; whether to add them to Hasegawa's entirely smooth fuselage, and if so how. The short answers for those who want to skip the 103 pages is "yes" (because the Seaking has a pretty bumpy skin) and "using HGW rivets". HGW rivets are absolutely superb but be warned; they are not easy to use. I ended up doing them badly once, stripping them off and doing them better the second time - after having to visit Yeovilton and produce my own drawings (Fearless wasn't the first!) to work out where to put them. g. the difference between Sikorsky seats and Westland ones; h. weird Seaking details like the collector cans, pee tube, sonar snub ring & sonobuoy chutes; i. in-flight refuelling from ships (HIFR); j. a minor diversion into restoring an earlier damaged Gazelle model; k. discussions of SACRUs, "Coke cans" and other such load-lifting goodies; l. correcting Revell's Sea Searcher radome (which happily Hasegawa got right); m. the relative merits of masks vs decals/transfers/stickers (& how excellent Maketar Masks are); n. building a tail rotor gust lock & what it was for; o. me being persuaded into adding sliding pilot's windows & other such mad details; p. the joys of a proper micro-chisel in embedding PE convincingly; q. embarrassing accidents involving Seakings landing on top of Sea Harriers; r. the right recipe for RAF Blue Grey paint in Gunze Sanyo lacquers; s. the superb-itude [which isn't a real word, but should be] of the FlightPath 1/48 Seaking conversion set; t. custom-build apparatus for extracting windows which the ham-fisted modeller has shoved into an already sealed fuselage; u. red & yellow engine blanks and how to build them; v. just how sexy a Seaking looks in all black; w. nylon & chain lashings on RN flight decks; x. a second diversion, this time in building a flight deck tractor to tow my aircraft; y. oil dot fading; and z. John Beattie ditching the RNHF Sea Fury... Just to remind you and/or give you a clue about where I'd got to: The tail pylon, Barn Door and tail rotor (complete with gust lock) - plus the beginnings of some weapon stations: Engine blanks! The exquisite FlightPath rescue hoist: A Flight Deck tractor: The rotor head (very much still a work in progress): ...and the aircraft itself (this one wasn't taken today, because it shows the cab before I re-applied masks to the windscreen)... and before I knocked the tail wheel off for the umpteenth time! As she looks today (glossy in preparation for further oil dot fading etc: Still to do? Three main things, all quite complicated: 1. the rotor head (specifically, the snakes' wedding of hydraulic pipes and wires around the blade fold); 2. the weapons stations and associated wiring; 3. the Forth Road Bridge gear ...plus putting it all together. I have just had 6 months away from it, but even before that it had taken me well over a year. Take your seats, Ladeez 'n' Gennelmeeen More soon Crisp
  19. Against my better judgement I'll start one here right at the end. The kit was already started (barely) by the previous owner, then I suspect got frustrated with the fit of the resin cockpit (there appears to have been a prior attempt too). I picked the kit up from a yard sale at a hobby shop for a paltry $10. Hopefully nothing critical is missing. There is a bunch of resin bits.....some decent, some not so much. Not sure what all I'm going to use but it will give me some options to pick through. Anyways, here is the starting gate.
  20. Hi, Yes, I'm going to try to make another Skyhawk in this GB. I was hoping to build an A-4C for this GB, aiming for an option on the new Bullseye models sheet. But that sheet isn't here yet. I do have the decals for a VA-66 A-4C that I've always wanted. Cheers, Stefan.
  21. Hi, Yes, another one! I had always considered doing an A-4F for this GB too. This afternoon, while spraying some primer on parts for the A-4C and the A-4E, I noticed that I had poured out and diluted a bit too much paint. I went for the A-4F and sprayed the primer on the spots that I knew would be needing them. This was also a sensibly priced Hasegawa Skyhawk, bought second-hand from the guys of the Amay Modeller's Club for 23 Euro's. The decals will be from AoA decals. I wanted to build one of the VA-155 options but was a bit torn between the one with the squadron badge and the one with the green stripes on the fuselage. I'll go with the green stripes. Cheers, Stefan.
  22. My placeholder for PACAF's contribution; 3rd TFW F-4E flying into theatre from Turkey. A small detachment of six planes which left theatre to the boneyard. Hasegawa special edition boxing of '91(?) moulding which was going cheap at LHS many years ago, AM decals, seats, pod, bombs and masks. I have plenty of references, some below, but none answer questions about pod; according to www.dstorm.eu they flew with AN/ALQ-131 in front left Sparrow well: Are pods O/D green or dark grey? How did they attach to Sparrow well in reality? How should I attach them on my model? Really appreciate help on the above; there are photos showing how weathered the planes were and where the camo colours split but not the pod. Will finish / progress builds in Interceptor GB then get on with this. Chris done
  23. Hi all This is Hasegawa's 1/48 Fw190A-4, finished in the markings of Oblt. Otto Stammberger's 'Weiss 9' of 4/JG26 in 1943. Stammberger was shot down in this aircraft on 13th May 43, during a dogfight with Spitfires of 331 (Norwegian) sqdn RAF over St Omer. He baled out with a damaged parachute, which did not fully open, so he hit the ground pretty hard and spent the next 10 days in a coma. He did return to combat duty, but after a total of seven victories he ended the war in various staff positions, He became manager of a large department store in Germany after the war, passing away in 2001 aged 81. Painted with various Vallejo and Mig mixes. As always, comments welcome..
  24. Here's my first project for this GB, a Hasegawa Lancaster in Rescue mode! Will be done OOB apart from Pavla intakes and CMK post war treaded tyre wheels. Any recommendations for the Orange is welcome please! The fuselage band is included as a decal but I will just airbrush that as I don't fancy trying to match the colour! The book doesn't show any real variation in the Aluminium panelling but I may add some slightly different shades here and there just to break up the overall effect, we'll see how it goes. Davey
  25. I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time. Thank you craig @modelling minion for coming up with the idea and kindly hosting My offering will be no doubt a popular kit here; the hasegawa 1/48 (wearing it’s M-guise in my case.) I have an aires resin office to play with, i’ve never tried a resin cockpit before so that’s something to get stuck into. Then I have these devil dog scooter decals on their way. I’m going for a low-viz M scheme. (not sure which one yet... decisions decisions...) To load up on weaponry (scooters look great loaded I think) I spent ages over the past weeks trawling ebay for hasegawa aircraft weapons sets (the kit only comes with the pontoon fuel tanks), and I then decided that eduards own mk.82’s / ter’s / mer’s / mk.81’s would be better and similar priced. But I ended up buying a second kit (hobbyboss) getting the whole kit for less money and that kit has enough weapons for two builds. SO I’ll be doing two! (Irrespective of the fact that I’m struggling to fulfill other gb commitments) The E from hobby boss will also wear a low-viz E scheme from the previous mentioned decal sheet. So I think this will be a really fun one. I love STGB’s And.... As if I hadn’t blown enough money, I got this book to help me out and it’s really good including some builds from other modellers in the rear section also. Good luck everybody!
