  1. Greetings all, This rather large box somehow appeared on my doorstep this week - how these things happen I shall never understand... I love the 8th Air Force and the B-17 and B-24 in particular, so decided to have a go at the recent HobbyBoss release of the B-24, or the 'crate the B-17 was delivered in' if you spoke a B-17 crew. Not very fair really, especially when you consider it could fly farther, faster and with a greater bombload than the Fort. The kit looks fairly simple in places as has been discussed at length elsewhere, but that's just what I'm after at the mom
  2. Hello, Here goes another little bird in 72nd F-5E Tiger II Adversary - VFC-13 Fighting Saints Fighter Squadron Composite (VFC-13) Saints is a US Navy fighter squadron that provides adversary training for U.S. Navy air wings at NAS Fallon, Nevada. The unit's mix of 23 F-5E, F-5F and F-5N aircraft are all painted in a variety of colorful adversary schemes of blue, gray, or brown camouflage. Fighter Squadron Composite (VFC-13) Saints is a US Navy fighter squadron that provides adversary training for U.S. Navy air wings at NAS Fallon, Nevada. The uni
  3. Hi folk's, I thought it only right as I'm building an Aussie Beaufighter to pay tribute to New Zealand with an entry. I have a set of mint decals from a past Frog build for the Corsair so as I was ordering something from KK I popped Hobbyboss easy kit on too it's only a fiver and is actually a great little kit.Photos ASAP.
  4. Seeing as most of you are building stuff from the coalition I thought I would give you all something to shoot at or drop things on. I need this to be a fairly quick build due to other GB commitments so that means 1/72 scale and that drastically reduces my list of possibilities, no bad thing as it helps with focusing the mind. I ended up going for a HobbyBoss Mi-24 Hind D which I have had for a while. Now while this isn't as accurate as the Zvezda kit (hasn't got the anti-torque kink to the fuselage after the cockpit, just like all the other Hind kits) it looks good, has decent detailing, comes
  5. Another lynx, this time a Hobbyboss kit. This one will be a normal HAS.2, with a twist that will come apparent in the a couple days. As with all my recent lynx, I have detailed the interior a little bit. I made milliput soundproofing along with some detail to the seats. I kept the Cyclic (No collective in this kit) away from the observers position and tried adding something of a radar screen to the console, and some overhead console. I used some evergreen strips to try and make the door rails a bit larger like the actual lynx, although i could make them a bit thicker. O
  6. Hello to all of you.Here is one model I built OOB.It is a nice model to work on.I used tamiya paints and caracal model decals for the markings. Regards,Dragan
  7. Hobby Boss is to release in late January 2020 a 1/18th Messerschmitt Me.262 Schwalbe kit - ref. 81805 Source: http://www.hobbyboss.com/index.php?g=home&m=article&a=show&id=151&l=en V.P.
  8. After completing my Tamiya Spitfire Mk.V tropical and with a view to continue getting me “back up to speed” on the modelling front I’ve delved into the stash and decided on this… HobbyBoss 1:48 Brazilian EMB-314 Super Tucano Having watched a YouTube video by Becker’s Models on his build… https: //www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMJsGOZ3fTI I decided to get the resin pilots he used, I don’t think I’ll be doing her “wheels up” but I liked stuffing a pilot in the Spitfire and as HobbyBoss don’t supply any I’ve order these KASL Hobby figures…
  9. In 2021 Hobby Boss is to release 1/48th CH-47 Chinook kits. - ref. 81772 - Boeing CH-47A Chinook - ref. 81773 - Boeing CH-47D Chinook More variants to follow? Most probably. To be followed. Source: http://www.moxingfans.com/m/view.php?aid=7201&pageno=1 V.P.
  10. As this one will not meet today's deadline, I'm going to keep working on it in this group build. The main airframe is at the decalling stage but weapons need painting, the rear cockpit displays need to be built (this particular aircraft was a dual control model) and the geometry of the main undercarriage legs needs some thought. Mike
  11. Hello Friends, This is a Build of the HobbyBoss Sukhoi-30 MKK in 1:48 size. I build this kit into a Su-30MKI in service with the Indian Air Force. The build is OOB with required additions or modifications. The mods include : 1. Making the LERX - Leading Edge Extensions alongwith the canards. I make this using plastic card and epoxy putty. Once the putty dried I sanded the thing to shape. The panel lines were rescribed with reference to the line drawings which are available on the internet. 2. I modify the tails as the ones used by the MKI are diff
  12. Dear Colleagues Enclosed is my last model of 2020. A year when society actually encouraged us to stay indoors and get down to serious modelling, not that we needed much persuading. In truth the BA-10 was more of an armoured lorry than fully functioning armoured car. A modest 50 HP was powering two rear axles only. On the plus side this was probably the most powerfully armed armoured car of the period and ran on solid tyres. The few that survived Operation Barbarossa probably had their small moment of glory in the November winter counter offensive in front of Moscow.
  13. My last work for 2020/ My goal was to do a Heller nose transplant on the Hobbyboss fuselage. Finally no real problem, everything fits easily. Here are the pics : The base real plane : the kit : one big issue anyway : the canopy...i had to vacuform another one, and i made many many tries before succeding... enjoy.
  14. In 2020-2021, HobbyBoss is to release 1/72nd Grumman F8F Bearcat kits. - ref. 87267 - Grumman F8F-1 Bearcat - ref. 87268 - Grumman F8F-1BBearcat - ref. 87269 - Grumman F8F-2 Bearcat V.P.
  15. So hopefully this will be a fairly short KUTA build. I originally started it back in the "Journey's End" GB - build thread can be found here. Since it's last outing the window masks went on and it got a coat of Alclad II Black Primer (or maybe it was Vallejo, it's a long time since I did it). At that point she was left to gather dust for some time. So after rescue it's been given a coat of Alclad II Gloss Black Base, but unfortunately this didn't come out as expected... As can hopefully be seen - there's a lot of texturing, now I'm not entirely sure

  17. Season's greetings all This is my take on Johannes Steinhoff's Me 262 'white 6', while he was flying with JV 44 at Munchen-Riem towards the end of the war. In April 1945, his aircraft hit a badly-repaired bomb crater on take-off, which damaged his main gear and threw the aircraft off line. In his own words, his aircraft was going 'too slow to get airborne and too fast to abort' and he received severe burns in the subsequent crash, which put him out of the war and in hospital for some time afterwards. He recovered eventually to play a leading role in the new Luftwaffe, as well a
  18. While some of my other builds are at the fragile stage to be transported when I go to my local model club meet on a thursday night to still keep me busy I had started on this one but I will still be concentrating on getting the other two completed first. So here we have my first Hobby Boss kit and my first pre-Dreadnought HMS Lord Nelson and as some of you may know I try to keep to ships built in the area of my home town and this one fits the bill of being built on the river Tyne at Jarrow This is how far I have got after a couple of sessions at the club this will be mostly ou
  19. Hello to all of you.This will be my last finished model for the year 2020.I made new seatbelts,gunsight and pittotube for this one.The paints I used are ak real colors and the decals are from Hi Decal Line.If you wish to see the full build process follow the youtube link bellow. Happy holidays to all of you and stay safe.
  20. Hi guys, I finally finished this build. It's HobbyBoss Panzer I Ausf. A, kit No. 80145, superb kit, with great details and quite well engineered. There were few frustrating bits, like super small photo-etched parts (and when I say super small, I mean SUPER small), quite a lot of cleanup of indy track links, but it's worth the fun. You can find more about this build in the WIP section here. I decided to build DAK version, Vehicle number 833 from the Regiment 5, the one of vehicles that arrived with the first batch of DAK units and that participated in the first actions until it
  21. My entry will be ZE967, a Tornado F3 of 23 Squadron, based at RAF Leeming. This Hobbyboss kit was purchased at least five years ago and it's time it was built: The Xtradecal sheet covers this airframe, Mosquito FB Mk VI (Mediterranean Theatre GB), Lightning F6 (Interceptor GB?) and two Phantoms (RAF Leeming and Falkland Islands) - the latter are part of my own KUTA build. The Tornado won't get started for a couple of weeks at least as I'm also building two Phantoms for the Vietnam GB.
  22. Hi all You wait ages for a D-13, then two turn up at the same time This is my attempt at D-13 '>>' - photographed at Pilsen, Czechoslovakia at the end of the war, unservicable, partially stripped and (I believe) with the engine/power egg removed. There are two (possibly three) recorded D-13s, one is 'Yellow 10' and this is the other one. There is also a pic of a burnt-out wreck which was identified as a D-13, but doesn't really give much away. Considering that 'Yellow 10' and '>>' had consecutive W.Nrs (836016 and 836017), the differences in finish ar
  23. Hi I started this kit way back in 2018 but Mojo loss helped stall this build for a long time but I have been finishing some stalled builds this year and got the Mojo back for this one. The Kit needed to be modified due to the fuselage spine being too rounded and a wanted add for some canopy bits and some kind gestures by @Nick Belbin and @fightersweepre canopy parts and a generous trade with @trickydicky210 netted a Revell MkII for donor parts. Thank you guys. I also need to thank you guys on the questions about Spitfires thread especially @303sqn who provided some cr
  24. Well, it’s time I started to write up where I’ve got to with my first Tomcat build having spent the last few weeks pre lockdown, and the most of the time since lockdown, gathering information, drooling over others’ work and finally (I wish I had one)... set about and went and bought some. Intial (re) inspiration was an Airfix world mag article (Nov 2019) describing building the Finemolds F-14A as a Sundowners bird (was always my favourite) and it reminded me of when I’d made my last F-14A in “about” 1986 when I’d used some xtradecals to present the Hasegawa kit as a low viz sundowner. It suffe
