  1. Not one of the usual suspects for a Beaufighter kit, firstly a Merlin engined option and one from High Planes Models. Last but not least all three options in the box are Fleet Air Arm options. The FAA used Beaufighters in a number of secondary roles especially in and around Africa; fleet requirements and convoy protection being the main ones. The HPM kit will take a bit of work to get it knocked into shape, the majority of the kit is a hard plastic with a fair amount of flash but under that there's a fair amount of nice detail. Vac formed canopies (in duplicate for the crack handed like me), white metal undercarriage and a transfer sheet with three options. And some etch. Fairly basic instructions, and colour call outs for three options. Once the starting pistol goes I see a bit of sanding in my future.
  2. Hi Everyone, this is my latest build in my 1/72 Royal Australian Navy aircraft theme - a GAF Jindivik pilotless target aircraft. There's some good background information on the Jindivik on the RAN website here: https://www.navy.gov.au/aircraft/gaf-jindivik-pilotless-target-aircraft. The aircraft I'm looking to represent can be seen in the photo at the bottom of the page being shadowed by a Skyhawk. The model itself comes from High Planes Models https://www.hpmhobbies.com/high-planes-gaf-jindivik-drone-kit-1-72/ It's a mixed media kit, mostly injection moulded with some resin and white metal parts. I've made quite quick progress (compared to my usual builds) and so this first post covers a fait bit of the build. The plastic is a low-pressure mould and takes a fair bit of cleaning up But they do come up quite nicely after a bit of careful trimming and sanding. Here is a fuselage half mated with a wing. I chose to attach the wings before joining the fuselage due to the unusual moulded wing mount. You can see in the previous photo that the wing mount is recessed into the fuselage and I found it best to hollow out the mount, insert the wing and then reinforce it with some plastic strip. There's a bit of lead shot added in order to avoid being a tail sitter when on the launch trolley. Here's the wings, fuselage and tailplanes all assembled. I still need to fettle the air intake at the nose of the drone. There's a little bit of filling and sanding required but the fit is still pretty good. The version I intend to make has shortened wings with fuel tanks mounted outboard and so I needed to trim the wings with a razor saw. The fuel tanks required a little bit of thought. Each half of the fuel tanks has a cut out to allow them to be mounted fully over the wings. I chose to fill the outermost cut-out so that the tanks could simply slide over the wing tips. Here's a view of the fuel tank cutouts. I filled them with plastic strip followed by a bit of putty. And here's a look of current progress sitting atop the launch trolley. The intake still needs to be mounted and sanded. And lastly for today a close up of the completed launch trolley. The wheels and mount points are white metal and the main body plastic. I added a bit of "wiring" between boxes to add a little bit of interest. The Humbrol tinlet gives some idea of how tiny this kit is. Hopefully I'll finish construction and get some paint on soon.
  3. My latest completion the 1/72 PJ Productions Dassault MIrage IIID/5 converted to the MIrage 5MD Elkan of the FaCH using the PJ Productions conversion kit and decals, not a bad build just a little filler here and there, except for the canopy which did not fit well and needed alot of persuasion to fit and I still don't think I got it right, anyway here it is Dassault Mirage M5MD Elkan by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr Dassault Mirage M5MD Elkan by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr Dassault Mirage M5MD Elkan by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr Dassault Mirage M5MD Elkan by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr Dassault Mirage M5MD Elkan by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr
  4. High Planes Models (HPM) is working in the framework of its Mirage III/V family on a future injected 1/72nd Dassault Mirage IIIC kit - ref. French boxing should be branded by PJ Production. Source: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1008428789325267/permalink/1041967469304732/ V.P.
  5. Another High Planes Models delta, the Mirage twin seater finished as a Dagger B for the retirement of the Delta's from Argentine service using Modelmaker Decals, not my greatest model by any means but here it is.
