  1. Hi, I am thinking of doing one of these. Spot the difference! As with their Ju-87 D/G, Hobbyboss have produced two boxings with what I suspect is exactly the same plastic. They claim the Ju-87D is a D-3, but it has the long wing and cannon of the D-5, together with the 37mm cannon of the G on the sprues. Here they say they have boxed a P-39N and a P-39Q but as the boxart shows both have the twin 30cal wing guns and the 50cal gondola mounted ones! There were also a number of minor differences between the 2 models, depending on which batch they were from, for example different
  2. So, with my P-39N nearing completion it is decision time on the next version. As the P-39Q is virtually identical ot the P-39N, particularly when in Russian service with the gondola mounted 50cal mg not fitted, and as it will require some work to make it accurate for the US version that HB provide decs for, I thought I would convert it to either the RAF Airacobra I or maybe one of the ones "repossessed" from the British order by the USAAC who called them P-400. I will have to replace the entire prop anyway as it is far too small, and while I am at it I will fit a longer and slightl
  3. HobbyBoss is to release a 1/48th Lavoshkin La-11 "Fang" kit in 2016-2017 - ref.81760 Source: https://www.facebook.com/TrumpeterModel/photos/a.103538733138062.8169.103526326472636/537476479744283/?type=3&theater V.P.
  4. As my builds in 2 other GB are in the painting stage I thought I might as well make a start with this. I doubt any of the 109 kits I intend to build are anywhere near 100% accurate, particularly the Italeri ones by all accounts, and this one is no exception. To start with the canopy, both open and closed options are provided but the G-2 had an armoured plate behind the pilot's head and that is missing, whilst the radio mast is moulded as part of the canopy and is rather short. Hobbyboss also want you to fit the D/F loop behind it but I doubt that is right according to the pics I ha

  6. Morning all! My less than a tenner entry is the Hobbyboss Sturmovick from their easy build range. I picked this up from the closing down sale at my local Toymaster store. Everything was 50% off and the model section had been almost picked clean when i arrived. So this one was available and at around a £5er i couldn't say no. I haven't built many Hobbyboss kits and this one was purchased purely down to the price. As you will see from the photos theres not many parts. The wings and fuselage are ready assembled but theres a reasonable bit of cockpit to be added and some un

  10. Hi all This is the HobbyBoss Fw190D-11, built OOB, although I used paint masks for the national markings. This is the 'alternative' scheme offered in the kit, with little or no information to support it, as far as I can tell. Basically, it is one of the D-11 prototypes (V57 to be exact), but in the colours and markings of a staff Major at JV44 in Munchen Riem. There doesn't seem to be any evidence of this a/c ever serving with JV44 - but then there's no evidence that it didn't, either . Painted in a fairly typical late war mashup of colours and tones. The Hobbyboss D-9/11/13 k
  11. LKW 7t MIL GL Truck LARS2 Hobbyboss 1:35 (85521) In the 1960s the Bundeswher was looking to replace its fleet of vehicles which stemmed from the birth of the modern German Army. They wanted a fleet of 2, 3 & 4 axle vehicles in the 4 to 10 tonne payload range which had to be amphibious. As it was a large task it was suggested that bidding companies form a common development company for a unified project. This was set up under the leadership of MAN and included Klockner-Humboldt-Deutz, Bussins, Krup, and Henschel. The specification agreed was for a cross country
  12. Hi all, Since I built my Defiant I’m now on a turret roll, so I’m going to drag myself kicking & screaming from my OOB comfort zone and attempt to build Hobby Boss’ “British Fleet Air Arm Avenger MkI” as an FAA Tarpon. From what I can tell, Hobby Boss have taken their “standard” US Avenger kit, sourced a new set of decals, made up a couple of paint schemes and issued it as an FAA version. All of the shortcomings and errors of this version of the kit have been well documented – thanks to @tonyot, @85sqn, @trickyrich and others for easing my journey of discovery with their excellent and
  13. That's South East Asian, most Skyhawks were seaworthy out of the crate From wikipedia: Due to the declining relationship between Indonesia and the Soviet Union, there was a lack of spare parts for military hardware supplied by the Communist Bloc. Soon, most of them were scrapped. The Indonesian Air Force (TNI-AU) acquired A-4 Skyhawks to replace its Il-28 Beagles and Tu-16 Badgers in a covert operation with Israel... The A-4 served the Indonesian Air Force from 1982 until 2003. Take one Hobbyboss 1/48 A-4E, add in some Airies resin for the Israeli extended exhaust and
  14. This was my first Hobby Boss kit. I started it in earnest in the fall of 2012 and hit the first “snag” soon after. I had to repaint the seat several times to get the effect I wanted and stopped construction for several weeks. Then I took up the gauntlet again. The plastic in this kit was sort of odd; in some places it seems quite soft but it also seemed very brittle at times too. I broke several parts just removing them from sprues, and this sure wasn’t my first rodeo. The fore and aft sections of the fuselage presented the next challenge. There was a terrible fit between the two sections. A
  15. Hello all. Another one completed this weekend, the Hobbyboss 1/72 F-14A Tomcat. A pretty straightforward build OOB. It may be a little oversimplified in places compared to say Hasegawa or GWH but simple suits me fine as it means i can crack on with the next model! Painted with Xtracrylix and then W&N Galleria Matt varnish to finish. Had a disaster at the final hurdle with the canopy as it cracked right down the centre while trying to clean some paint off, so i replaced it with a Pavla vacform one (i hate cutting vac canopies and can never s
  16. 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.
  17. LvKv 90C Anti-Air Vehicle (84508) 1:35 Hobby Boss via Creative Models Ltd Based upon the original Combat Vehicle 90 (CV90), this anti-aircraft light tank uses the same chassis with a 40mm Bofors autocannon in a new turret, which is guided by a Thales radar unit perched on top of the turret in a cylindrical housing. LvKv stands for Luftvärnskanonvagn, which translates to self-propelled anti-aircraft weapon, with the 90 representing the decade of its birth. It can fire programmable proximity-fused fragmentation or armour piercing rounds, which coupled with the com
  18. 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…
  19. I've been working on some fairly challenging (well for me) limited run aircraft kits and happened to see this kit going very cheap (A$ 10) at a local hobby shop while looking for some paint. I figured it might be a good fun quick build while working my way through the tediousness of masking and painting canopies for my Hampden. Not much to it. Straight forward instructions. So a straightforward quick build right out of the box. First a bit of weight in the bottom of the hull.
  20. Hi gang, here is my first finish of 2021, it's the Hobbyboss 1/72 TA-7C finished as the prototype in overall gloss white (courtesy of a rattle can from Halfords). The only after market bits apart from the decals are the ejector seat handles which you can't actually see in the pics. The kit fell together, I finished it with a light wash and it's displayed on a chopping board from ebay with a Corsair sticker also from ebay. Looking forward to building more to use up the after market decal sheet. SLUF#1 by tony_inkster, on Flickr SLUF#2 by tony_inkster, on Flic
  21. Hi all, Just completed this Hobbyboss sd kfz 222 - built OOB. Nicely detailed interior which is completely wasted if you close the vehicle up, as I did . Lightly weathered with some oils and pigments, but that's about it. I haven't built much armour, but am keen to understand where I could improve, so don't hold back
