  1. Heller Gloster Javelin T.3, in the Heller/Humbrol box. Looks like I paid about $10.00USD for this, probably in the late 80s. I think I thought I was going to build a bunch of trainers, since in the same stash box that I hadn't looked in for years I found an Airfix Bulldog, a T-38, L-39, Alpha Jet, CT-114, etc. Guess I better get at it now!
  2. My Heller Bloch 174 arrived today, just in time to join in. This is a big departure for me as I've been building far more modern jets in recent years & I've been spoiling myself with mostly newly tooled kits. This kit has quite nice finely raised detail, but I will be rescribing some select panel lines. I won't be getting rid of all thise rivets. There doesn't look to be much in the way of aftermarket for it except for a few Renaissance parts, resin engines & new vacform clear parts. The kit transparencies look pretty good to me & I personally can't see what's wrong
  3. HIC SUNT DRACONES (Here be Dragons) And here is one of the two Sea Dragons, the one that -as stated in the building article- flew between Colonia (Uruguay) and Buenos Aires (Argentina) over the Río de la Plata, between 1939 and 1940. The life of the plane ended in an accident as one engine quit on take-off, but fortunately without casualties. I was fortunate (and grateful) to find this page: -see there point 5) http://aeronavescx.blogspot.com/2011_01_09_archive.html The post describes (in Spanish) the history of this airline and plane.
  4. Hello everyone... Im not at a loss for builds right now with five on the go. Crazy me... Ive gone and decided to add a couple of new ones. The first one will be an old Heller 1/72 Bf.109 B/C kit built as a Swiss Dora, hopefully this one. https://www.asisbiz.com/il2/Bf-109D/SAF/pages/Messerschmitt-Bf-109D1-Swiss-AF-Uberwachungsgeschwader-J-307-WNr-2302-Duberdorf-Switzerland-June-1945-01.html Started off by painting and assembling the interior, how original. This will make my 3rd or 4th Heller kit ever. I have another going in the Nordic group build a Curtiss
  5. Hi All, I bought this from evilbay back when the French Fancy GB was approved; quite a while ago. Since then it has been sitting in the stash while I built up my courage to attempt it. In the end I decided to just do an out of the box build. I ended up doing a few a few bits of detailing. some of which were pointless. This kit has recently been re-released and I believe may be had from the Big H, but I really hope they have cleaned the moulds up. Somewhere here on BM is a thread where someone said they couldn't find the cowling gun fairings. That really isn't surprising, this
  6. Good evening For this Gb I started this week end the Heller Sherman M4A2 called Brives La Gaillardes of 12e Regiment de Cuirassiers 2e Division Blndée also known as "Division Leclerc" The box art The sprues Building instructions The decals sheet and tracks I am going to build the Sherman called Brives La Gaillarde I started by painting some parts I also started to work on the turret and hull Patrice
  7. Hi All, this is my last off the bench for 2017; Heller's 1/72 Me-163 Komet with Scheuch-Schlepper. The Komet seat is a resin addition originally for an Fw-190 and the pitot is Albion Alloys tube. In other respects it is as Heller intended. Paints are Lifecolor finished with Xtracrylix satin varnish and the decals are the kit's own, with the exception of the swastikas. Happy modelling.
  8. Good evening Today I started my 4th build for this Gb the old but still very good Vampire Fb 5 produced by Heller in 1979 This build will be OOB , I will just place a pilot The box art The sprues I will use the decals from the box for this markings I started by painting the cockpit interiror in black , I placed the seat and painted the instrument panel Patrice
  9. My first "over the Christmas break build" is this recent re-release from Heller, the Etendard IVM. Despite its raised panel lines and relative simplicity, I enjoyed building this one and making use of the superb decals included in this latest release. FredT
  10. Hi all, Hellers little Mirage 5, built from the box. (and some of how it used to be)
  11. Another build in my personal Obsolete GB. The Heller Gloster Javelin T3. Built oob, brush painted with Humbrol Enamels, kit decals and finished with a coat of Klear. As usual with these older kits, there are raised panel lines throughout, but nice detail as well, and certainly builds up with no major dramas. Even after umpteen years the decals behaved faultlessly and adhered to the raised lines without the need for any decal solutions. Finished as per the kit instructions, as a Javelin stationed in Singapore, at R.A.F. Tenagh with T/60 Sq. during 1963. The mode
  12. A project just for fun,as after the Sword kit,I left with 3 Heller kits to play! I want to make Indian Navy T60,if I find the correct numbers needed. That kit is snap-fit and with only 15 pieces with basic detail... So the ...cockpit was painted black... and started to shorten the wings and the rudder. some putty here and there... and a first primer
  13. Hi all, another Mirage 2000 this time Hellers 1/72 version. Built straight from the box using Xtracolor Enamels. The kit is probably not that accurate but it is a fair representation of this beautiful 'Delta' Brian.
  14. Going through an old memory card and found these buried in it. Actually had one on Photobucket, but forgot about these other ones. Heller Typhoon with Airfix Refueler and Jeep and figures from the aircrew set. Pilots from the spares and one figure from a Matchbox armour set,( he's slightly bigger than the others). Diorama made about three years ago, and still have it on display. Brush painted with Humbrol and still my favourite build. I was just returning to modelling then and was pretty pleased with how this turned out. Sean
