  1. Fly is reported working (with HPH new brand Infinity Models) on a 1/32nd Curtiss SB2C Helldiver kit - ref. INF3201 Sources: https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/topic/81161-sb2c/&do=findComment&comment=1142236 https://www.modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=105045&start=2550 First sprue picture V.P.
  2. UPDATE Thanks LanceB : Curtiss SBC-3/-4 Helldiver Vespa Model Kits is working on 1/72nd and 1/48th resin kits from an aircraft type I'm unable to identify. Any guess as I confess that it's a aircraft from a period of aviation I've no interest at all.

  3. Hello all; Here's my just completed Helldiver. There's a story to the paint scheme which is too long to relate here; there's a WIP thread which has most of the story and the rest can be found on my site if you're interested. The short version is that I reckon this to be a repaint of an airframe that was originally finished in the four-colour scheme. I must admit, the WIP itself is a bit light on detail, I need to up my game in that department! I added a fair bit of aftermarket on this one, most notably of course the wing fold. Almost all of it was a waste o
  4. This build is a bit different for me, I'm using a few add-ons which isn't my forte and thought I'd share in the hope that tips and advice may help me miss a few of the pitfalls I'd otherwise find. To be honest, I'm not sure why I'm going this full-on with this one, call it a lock-lock rush of blood to the head on Hannants one evening I'm starting with the Accurate Miniatures kit and using aftermarket wheelbase from Aries; exhausts, wheels, undercarriage covers and engine from Quickboost; wing-fold set from Wulpack Designs; and a cockpit set and masks from Eduard. M
  5. Following the sad demise of my B-57 due to an over excited Labrador (I wonder if I should put a B-57 silhouette on her collar as a kill marking?) I had to have a look for something to take it's place as I can't really co-host and not have something in the gallery can I. Rummaging through the (ever expanding) stash I actually struggled to find much that fits the criteria and then I came across a box with those well known red, orange and yellow stripes on the black background and my decision was made. I have very fond memories of this kit as it was the first biplane that I was able t
  6. Some photos of my Helldiver diorama, pulling out of a dive, under fire, hydraulics lagging, fleeing for cover and altitude. This is the beautiful Revell 1:48 kit which I enjoyed very much. I left off the gunners (admittedly very sensible) armour plate in order to give more of a gung-ho feeling to the scene. Thanks for looking! CF
  7. Here's my take on the Academy Helldiver, a VB-3 machine flying from USS Yorktown. Nice kit to put together, no problems apart from some trouble with gloss varnish, but that was probably me! Build thread over on the 'Radial Engines Rock' GB. Kit decals, Vallejo ModelAir paint. Didn't use all the stencils, got bored with that part of the build very quickly!
  8. Hi Mates, tonight, inspired by the on going Group build, I would like to show you my Helldiver, done several Month ago. Next to a lot of sanding paper, and Stencils of the superb Academy Helldiver, I used some Rockets delivered by an Academy Hellcat, Exhausts are from Quickboost.. Paints, as always Agama, done by Brush. Hope you like it. Best Regards Stefan
  9. SB2C-5 Helldiver "The Final Version" 1:72 Special Hobby The Curtiss SB2C Helldiver was, as the name suggests, a dedicated divebomber which replaced the Douglas SBD Dauntless in US Navy Service. The design was beset by problems and its entry into service was severely delated while Curtiss attempted to resolve all of the flaws. The final production version was the SB2C-5 which was able to carry more fuel, featured a revised paddle-shaped propeller, enlarged bomb bay and revised cockpit canopy with simplified framing. It was also equipped with the AN/APS-4
  10. Based on the academy kit with dedicated injected parts like a new canopy, Special Hobby is to release in Spring 2017 a 1/72nd Curtiss SB2C-5 Helldiver kit - ref. SH72324 Source: http://www.specialhobby.net/2016/12/sh72350-sb2c-5-helldiver-172.html box art V.P.
  11. Photo Etch Detail Sets for Special Hobby SB2C-5 Helldiver 1:72 Eduard Special Hobby's SB2C-5 Helldiver is, as we saw in my recent review, really Academy's SB2C-4 with extra parts and ordnance. Given that Eduard already produced a set of photo etched parts for the Academy kit (as well as the later Cyber Hobby kit), it should come as no surprise to see that the Czech firm have been so quick to market a set of parts for their compatriot's kit. All told, there are three sets, plus a zoom set for the time or budget conscious modeller. SB2C-5 He
  12. Resin Upgrade Sets for SB2C Helldiver 1:72 CMK Hot on the heels of Special Hobby's upgraded boxing of the already excellent Academy Helldiver kit come these resin upgrade sets. Just like the resin items included with the SH kit, these parts have been designed on a computermebob and mastered using 3D printing technology. CMK are well known for prodcing some seriously nice resin, and these items are no exception. SB2C Main Wheels Set for Academy/Cyber-Hobby/Airfix Kits The first set includes a pair of replacemen
  13. This is a throttle quadrant I picked up from eBay last week - following research online, I am pretty certain it's from an SB2C Helldiver. Can anyone confirm or deny that? It's all seized up, but one of my friends owns an aircraft instrumentation restoration and refurbishment company, so I'll enlist his help in how to tackle it so that the levers are operable.

  16. Eduard Photo Etch detail sets for Cyberhobby SB2C-4 Helldiver 1:72 Eduard Although Cyber Hobby’s Golden Wing series kits have a mixed reputation, their Helldiver seems to be generally well regarded. A combination of superb fit and excellent detail makes it a tempting, if not cheap option for those seeking to add a Helldiver to their collection. Now Eduard have released a tranche of photo etch detail sets aimed at pushing an already detailed kit right up to the top of the tree. SB2C-4 (Self Adhesive) 1:72 Eduard
