  1. As I have been slowly building up a collection of aircraft used for testing at Edwards AFB over the past few years this GB just seemed to good an opportunity to miss, the only problem being narrowing down the field of potential builds and actually choosing what to build. After much consideration I finally settled on one of Vought's finest, an A-7D Corsair. This has been on my "to do" list after I saw some of Sven's ( @Old Viper Tester) superb pics that he took of A-7's at various points of their careers in testing at Edwards AFB. I am particularly drawn to the very early YA-7D's which still carried the US Navy style of refuelling probe which were also painted in a grey and white scheme, but not Light Gull Grey as per the Navy but Air Defence Grey. For a discussion on this colour and for some pics of what I am trying to recreate have a look at this thread; The kit I shall be using is Hasegawa's venerable 1/48 A-7 (still the best in any scale) which I have in a joint D/E boxing which gives me all the bits I need plastic wise for my project; As you can see below all is still safely sealed in it's plastic bag; For detail references I shall be using this excellent book; Whilst focusing solely on the A-7's service in Greece it has some superb detail shots which are applicable to the A-7 in general such as this one of one of the avionics bays which I plan to use by having open on the model; I think I have a resin seat somewhere that I shall add to the kit if I can find it but other than that she will be built OOTB, the decals will be coming from the spares box. The start date can't come soon enough as I am really looking forward to getting started on this one, all I need to do now is decide on which airframe to build! Thanks for looking in and as always all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Craig.
  2. Hi all, My latest build. Out of the box except for the decals and home made pitot and AOA covers.
  3. Hello all. Here is my rendition of the Arado 234 B-2 from Hasegawa. It took me longer than usual because I have used the very nice Aires cockpit and wheel bays, some part of the CMK set showing the fuselage tanks, and also because it was important to protect all the transparencies from any blemish or scratches as this is one of the main attraction of the first Jet Bomber in aviation. As a matter of fact one is obliged to glue the undercarriage legs before the painting and it is not the best of things.The plane belongs to the 8/ KG76 and participate in some bombing missions on Antwerp and Bruxelles and on the Remagen bridge as well. Camo is RLM81/82/76 from Mr Color lacquers, markings are made with masks. Thanks for your comments to come, bye for now. 45594791-B51D-4FFA-9318-1196B54C439C_1_201_a by jean Barby, sur Flickr 50E7C2D2-B3AD-4675-B91F-ACB7C19374E5_1_201_a by jean Barby, sur Flickr 6679AC7A-27F1-47D5-8645-258E3D14B319_1_201_a by jean Barby, sur Flickr 8CCF5C80-793A-4FFA-97D0-69C447650283_1_201_a by jean Barby, sur Flickr 2B3B2B59-FDD9-4767-B0A0-6B79360FDB54_1_201_a by jean Barby, sur Flickr FAA5D30A-8A05-4BAD-B831-3938530247ED_1_201_a by jean Barby, sur Flickr 2CF72B53-5142-4154-8D03-674F0B58AEEB_1_201_a by jean Barby, sur Flickr
  4. Hi to all Here are the frist in progrees pics i've ever posted on this forum, and to do so what else than then a majestic British Phantom It's the venerable but respectable Hasegawa 1:48 F-4 GR2 Phantom, with some add ons: Aires office and exhausts, AlleyCat seamless intakes, Res Kit wheels, and decals from Airdoc's British Phantom in West Germany. Adapting the AIres Cockpit is a pain as usual but so it's such a beauty... on the other hand Alleycat intakes are a breeze to adapt. So far I'm here Aires Seats awaiting paint Now for the exhaust... well to make a long stoy short: Aires on the left, Hasegawa on the right Something's wrong here! when installed ,the Aires parts fall into the fuselage, they are way to small in diameter! I've therefore cut the inside of the Aires parts ton adpat them to the external Hasegawa part... much better: once gain original on the left, modified on the right: To be continued! Phil
  5. Well seeing as I'm co-hosting I thought it was about time that I revealed what I will be building for this GB. Now those of you who have seen my builds in the past will know that I like to build things in markings that are a little out of the ordinary and have an interest in things flown in smaller conflicts from around the World and as such I voted for the Small Wars GB which unfortunately didn't get picked this time around so I thought I would use this opportunity to show why I like the subject and hopefully garner some support if it comes up for voting again, and also to point some of you in the direction of the Latin American GB which could really use some more support in the Group Build Chat section, go on you know you want to! Anyway to the build. I will be using the venerable Hasegawa 1/48 F4U-5N boxing which is still the best 1/48 kit for anything from the F4U-5 onwards and I will be using a decal sheet from FCM to produce an F4U-5 NL that was used by the Argentine Naval Aviation in the 1963 Navy Revolt which saw them used to attack armored forces of the Army as they advanced on the Navy base at Punta Indio causing quite a bit of damage. An interesting fact is that they were used in conjunction with the Navy's Grumman Panthers, which would also make a nice topic to build. The revolt got absolutely nowhere but cost the Navy dearly as a lot of their aircraft were destroyed on the ground by the Air Force. Onto the box and it's contents, here are the usual box and contents shots starting with the box top; And the contents; And the decal sheet by FCM, currently taped to a window to increase it's whiteness; And a look at what she will look like, hopefully! So there we have it, a build which covers 3 GB's, Corsair, Small Wars and Latin America and will hopefully get a little support for the other two. Thanks for looking in and all criticism and advice is always welcome. Craig.
  6. Hiyas, Back with another freehand cammo, this time it is an Asia Minor scheme on an Imperial Iranian Sabre. When I saw that High Decal was releasing decals for a cammo Sabre I just had to do it! Converted a japanese Sabre with the long wings and dropped the slats with a set from Kasl other than that I threw in a cockpit from Aires and wheel wells from CMK. Here's some pics Cheers!
  7. Here is my start at the old Hasegawa F4U-4 Corsair. It will be done as a Korean War plane with rocket stubs but I may not use rockets as I have none. I will be ordering PE seat belts as it looks sparse in the office. So far In have the cockpit assembled and painted along with the engine.---John
  8. Now for a dirty build, really dirty! After 9 years on The Shelf of Doom, when I ran out of mojo, it got ressurected when I felt the need for a dirty TPS scheme Anyways a straightforward build, a bit old gawa model but it went together nicely only issue I had was really all the open doors everywhere...I don´t like open doors. Some aftermarket found their way into it, Aires pit, reskit wheels, Airdoc decals, verlinden bombs, eduard masks and some scratching. I went for VA-37 "Bulls" and loiaded it up to the teeth! Here are the dirty pics...enjoy! Cheers!
  9. Here's my 1/48 A-4C, built for the In The Navy group build. Build thread is here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235072127-a-pair-of-skyhawks/ It's finished as BuNo 147781 of VX-5 in 1965, using Two Bobs decals. This Skyhawk was used by the Naval Air Test Center at China Lake for weapons testing so it needed something under a wing - I found a photo of it carrying an orange and black AGM-62 Walleye so used a Daco resin Walleye. Unfortunately the same photo revealed one error in my model - it didn't have a refuelling probe. I also got the alignment of the 'China Lake' decals on the fin wrong, which I realised too late to fix! thanks for looking Julian
  10. With Phase Hanger Fuel tank and seat, AOA decals
  11. Nakajima Ki 43-I Hayabusa (Oscar) Hasegawa 1/48 This is my second project in the Pacific group build. First thing to say about this project is this wasn’t the original scheme I was going to do. I had a problem with the decals that weren’t working for me at all. I changed to the second scheme in the kit which is a Burma plane from what I can see. I checked the pilot’s operation theatre. As a result of the change and time being short in the group build I left the lower paint colour as it was. In theory it should be bare metal. I painted all the bands as I wasn’t going to risk messing the decals up again. The red makings are decals. I was going to do it as a clean build. However, I stuffed up the chipping by adding too much. It looked good from the direction I was working, but when I looked at it from a different direction a lot more showed up and wasn’t looking good. The same thing happened on my Zero. That is why it has too much chipping on the side of the cockpit. I was lucky with the Oscar because I had forgotten to add the black walkway panel decal. After I added that it looked better. Anyway this is why I went further with the weathering. The kit went together well all though I did have to use some filling because of my less than perfect building work. I had to do some last minute corrections because of hurrying the build in the end. So here it is, done. Have a look at the Pacific group build it ends today. There's some nice models there. I thought I would add one more image. The sight in this image has been corrected as you can see in the other two images.
  12. Here's my latest build based on the 1/48 Hasegawa F-4EJ. Quite a lot of work was carried out on improving the surface detail. Aires seats were added and plastic card was used to enhance the cockpit. MRP paints were used throughout.
  13. Hi all, Here are a a few shots of my just completed Sea King.

  14. There were some Hurricanes around the place that were painted silver and looked quite smart, but it seems there was but one airframe that got the full buffed up natural metal finish treatment. V6787 was with the Rhodesian Airforce, and as I understand it, took part in a Battle of Britain memorial flight in September 45. Other Hurricanes got the silver paint treatment, but this one - the squadron leaders plane- got the works. I can't resist a nmf build, and having picked up a kit... I came up with a plan to avoid the dreaded brown and green splodges. Somehow, I managed to find one other picture of the little beauty, on the ground at " RAF Cranbourne, Rhodesia", and bless me, it portrays the starboard side!! It was meant to be, right??
  15. Hello, My last one. In winter Romanian colors. Thanks for looking at ! Anis.
  16. Hello, The project I'm working on. The challenge is to achieve an interesting white finish. Here, an option. Captions are not important, everything is in the pics. But if you need to get a point, let me know. My pleasure. Thank's for loooking at ! Anis.
  17. Hi everyone, Just thought I`d show some pic`s of Hasegawas 1/48 Kittyhawk that I`ve just completed for my Brother In Law Completed as the 2nd option in the box.... to represent Flying Officer Neville Dukes; Kittyhawk Mk I, of 112 Squadron, Libya 1942. Built almost completely from the box contents with just some seat belts, brake pipes, resin exhausts and aerial wires added Had a bit of trouble getting the Shark Mouth decals to fit, so there`s a bit of hand painting involved there. Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking Cheers Russ
  18. Hi all, I picked up a really nice Hasegawa Mitsubishi F1 from the Hinckley show today but as the ejector seat is rather basic I wondered if anyone knows if there's a replacement resin seat out there for this kit? Hopefully the seat is a common one used on other aircraft, so wonder if there are any JASDF experts on BM who know if there's a suitable aftermarket item? Thanks in advance, Pete
  19. Hi all, I'm currently making a CF-18 in 1/48 from a Hasegawa kit, there's a great plan for external stores in the instructions but only one problem, the kit just comes with three rather boring drop tanks which limits my options! As I have not built too many models so far I do not have an extensive spares box to dip into, so wonder if any advice where I could get something more exciting than drop tanks for the Canadian version of the Hornet? Thanks in advance, Peter
  20. Good morning to all, I want to participate in this group with a 87 Squadron RAF Hurricane Mk.I, piloted by ace Ian R. Gleed. The plane shows the personal mark of Gleed, a cat named Figaro that appears in the Disney film Pinocchio, and that was his personal emblem on all planes in which he flew to his disappearance The kit is the Mk.I 1/48 Hasegawa Nightfighter, although I build day fighter. Like almost all models of this brand the level of detail is very high and the quality of finish is remarkable. I put the ceremonial pictures of the box and some content here. I will use some aftermarket as Eduard's RAF seatbelts WWII and a paint mask of the same brand that has not yet arrived. I hope to do a good job because both the event and the site deserve. Thank you very much to all and welcome.
  21. This isn't my model if anyone was thinking I'd branched out and got good! No this beauty was built by my buddy Paul who is still on the itra-web nursery slopes so until he's up and running I'm doing the honors. The kit is out of the box with aftermarket markings,the RBF tags and missile seeker head covers are home produced. Thanks for looking in, John for Paul
  22. Hello All, I've bee off for a long time... This one finished few weeks ago. The biggest challenge was to capture the green shades. BTW, the kit is NOT a copy of a the real 846, but a patchwork of all kinds of weathering i've seen on those nothern birds... Thanks for looking !
  23. Hi everyone, Stuck between builds again, so I hope you dont mind me showing you some older builds; my P-47 Thunderbolt collection - so far.... Firstly Hasegawas Razorback Done as the 2nd option; Miss Mary Lou of the 19th FS, 318th FG, Saipan Second is Academys P-47N With aftermarket decals to display; Lonesome Polecat Of the same group ( i believe ) and thirdly Monograms P-47D Bubbletop, Passionate Patsy Which you`ve already seen Hope you enjoy, Thanks for looking Cheers Russ
  24. Hi Folks Every collection should have one, and I thought I'd share my attempt with you. Having read the various threads on here re fuselage colours and shades I hope I can get away with my mix which used a bit of chromate yellow to match Hendon's example: Regards J A
