  1. MV-22 Osprey (81769) Hobby Boss via Creative Models Ltd The Osprey can trace its roots back a long way into the 1970s, while the tilt-rotor concept goes back even further to the time of very early aviation between the wars. In the 70s Bell began constructing a prototype that bears a family resemblance to the Osprey, complete with twin engines and a very similar overall shape. After the disaster that was the US raid in Iran to free their embassy staff, a gap in their inventory was identified for a large vertical and short take-off and landing aircraft that could
  2. and my dad already started the next HB 262 prototype DSC_0008 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0009 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  3. #12/2021 And my dad has finished the next one. Hobby Boss kit, Eduard seatbelts, EZ line for antenna wires, brake lines added. Painted with AK Real Color RLM81/82 and Gunze Aqueous RLM76. Kit doesn´t include US markings, took some from the sparesbox. Build thread here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235090203-under-new-management148-messerschmitt-me262a-1au4-pulkzerstörer-with-5cm-mk214a-usaaf/ This was another futile German project to stop the allied bomber masses and change the course of war. Two test aircraft were fitted with a modified
  4. Dad started a new 262, this time the 5cm gun test version. Don´t know yet if he does "899" or "083" DSC_0009 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0010 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0011 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  5. All good Me262 come in three, so besides the Pulkzerstörer and glass nose version, my dad starts now a third and last one. DSC_0003 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr gonna do "712" DSC_0006 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr

  7. I picked this up on a whim at the LHS a while back, I think it cost me all of about 8 dollars. Looks interesting, clear plastic for the main body and it's almost in one piece. Dad's been bugging me to build it, so what better opportunity really.
  8. For my 1st GB of the year I will be building the HobbyBoss 1/48 A-4E .. and yes someone has to build a TopGun themed Skyhawk (it is to join the TigerMig I am also building) ... being crafty with the title I have left myself with the option of either the desert camo style or the 2 tone grey aircraft The build will be OOB , though I plan to make the flaps and slats droopy , Eduard PE cockpit and homemade decals , painted with Mr Hobby and Tamiya acrylics. The Box and Sprue shots
  9. Soviet T-60 Light Tank (84555) 1:35 Hobby Boss via Creative Models Ltd Just prior to WWII, the Soviets were casting around for a light tank to replace their ageing fleet, and true to Soviet form, a totally non-confusing situation occurred with two prototypes developed that went on to receive different marks. The amphibious version became the T-40, while the dry-land only T-60 was often referred to as the T-60 Scout Tank to avoid confusion with another similarly named tank. The T-60 was fitted with heavier armour and a 20mm cannon, keeping the original 12.7mm mac
  10. For my second entry I am building this Hobby Boss Eurocopter Tiger as an Australian Army armed reconnaissance helicopter. Ironically it has recently been announced that the Tigers will be replaced by AH-64E Apaches. The Tigers had a troubled history, lengthy maintenance requirements resulted in high operating costs and low availability. In addition there were problems with communication and data links. A look at the parts: The instructions are of the exploded diagram style:
  11. Hi all Just a few pics from my latest build- the 1/48 HobbyBoss KV-1E I love the look of the KV-1 but like it even more with the bolted on armour, a real beast! A simple build with some nice details and a few bits of PE and even a metal wire tow cable and for about half the price of the Tamiya kit, so what's not to like? OoB apart from the tarp and painted with MRP 4BO and pretty much a straight copy of the techniques shown by Nightshift's build on youtube, I make no apologies! This is the first 1/48th armour I've built and this is the way I'm going- my fi
  12. Hobby Boss is to release in 2019-2020 a new tool 1/48th Boeing Bell MV-22 Osprey kit - ref. 81769 Source: https://www.facebook.com/TrumpeterModel/photos/pcb.1159171700908088/1159171487574776/?type=3&theater V.P.
  13. Soviet D-38 Tank (84517) 1:35 Hobby Boss via Creative Models Ltd The D-38 was a derivative of the BT-2 “convertible” tank that could have its tracks removed and could run on its road-wheels for an extra turn of speed on metalled/tarmacked roads, although Russia had very little in the way of this type of road, so it was a bit of a waste of effort. The tank was pretty good for its time, and the D-38 was fitted with a faceted turret that was welded, and could carry a 76.2mm howitzer, with the M1927 being the choice as it allowed the tanks to offer fire support to ad
  14. This is a build for a friend, This is Hobby Boss's outstanding kit, straight out of the box. The Black Aces has to be one of the best Tomcat schemes. Paints used are MRP.
  15. Here is my model of USS Lassen in 1:700 scale from the Hobby Boss kit. I started this on 23rd Dec and with some fits and starts finished it yesterday. It was an easy kit to build, however, I rather bodged the paintjob as I painted the deck first, then the superstructures and when time came to attach them found some gaps needed filling, resulting in too many layers caused by masking and re-masking using Liquid Mask. As a result the sharp details have become rather lost and the decals exhibit quite a bit of silvering despite liberal application of Daco decal solvent. it was also my f
  16. Quite surprisingly still no trace nor rumour - even from Chinese modellers homepages - about the HobbyBoss catalogue 2021-2022. V.P.
  17. I have always found this aircraft very attractive in it`s unpainted state. The history is well known, for those who are interested: https://falkeeins.blogspot.com/2017/11/messerschmitt-me-262-1-wnr-111711-at.html There is also some very good video footage from this aircraft of 1947 in the USA (surprisingly still with swastica on tail): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLk_u7ibSeo Befor I started I considered this an easy project: NMF finish all over with some panels in RLM02 and hand painted 02 over the puttied panel lines. In fact I had huge problems with the look of the NMF,
  18. DPRK Pukguksong-2 (84544) 1:35 Hobby Boss via Creative Models Ltd Unsurprisingly there is not much information out there about this Missile system. The Pukguksong-2 (NK-15 western designation) is a North Korean Ballistic missile. It has been classed as a Medium Range or Intermediate range ICBM as little is know about its real range; this is estimated between 1200 kms and 3000 kms. So far there have only been two test flights both on a deliberate low trajectory. Unlike previous North Korean missiles the Pukguksong-2 is a solid fueled missile. Transport is through a
  19. USAF XM706E2 (84536) 1:35 Hobby Boss via Creative Models Ltd The Commando series of light amphibious armoured cars was developed by Cadillac Gage in the US and was designated the M706. It was developed specifically for the Military Police and convoy escort in Vietnam, Its high ground clearance and waterproofing being suitable for the terrain being encountered. It was one of the first vehicles the US had which combined the roles of the APC and a conventional armoured car, carrying upto 10 troops in the back. The design would spawn a whole range of vehicles some wit
  20. I've been encouraged by a respected member of this forum to provide some of my work for others to see. The last number of years I've struggled to finish and complete a kit. My building started in the 70's and the 80's and 90's, completed many and reaching a quality level that I was really pleased with. I have a good feeling working on this kit, I do see the finishing line relatively speaking. The LTV A-7 aircraft has been a favourite of mine for some time. And 2 seat versions of normally single seat aircraft as well a favourite. Yes the Hobby Boss Corsair has its warts, but I don't
  21. Hi to all! Here is HobbyBoss 1/72 F9F2 Panther in colors of Argentina. On kit are used Quickboost aftermarket, nose, wheels, wheels covers and jet pipe. Painted, weathered and washed with Ammo Mig colors. Thanks for watching! BR
  22. Everything else is heading to decals & weathering so time to start he next kit. Going with the Hobby Boss M4 HST (most likely in straight OD). It may eventually have something to tow (thinking a captured 88mm AA unit). Usual box art/sprue shot to start
  23. A-26 Invader (83213) 1:32 Hobby Boss via Creative Models Ltd The A-26 Invader underwent a confusing change of designation to B-26 Invader after 1948 by the US Air Force to confuse us (mainly me), and later on back to the A-26 just to complete my befuddlement. It was developed a little later than the Marauder and despite using the same engines it was designed totally separately from its more rotund colleague. It was designed to replace the A-20 Havoc, but it was initially less than popular in the Pacific theatre where its poor cockpit visibility due to the canopy
