  1. WWII Luftwaffe Airfield Set (DS4801) 1:48 ICM via Hannants During WWII the Luftwaffe operated from all manner of airfields, from rough temporary strips to fully furnished airfields with all mod cons of the time, including brick-built barracks and even a specially oversized bath for a visiting Hermann Göring. They often hosted numerous aircraft types at once, plus all of the attendant crew, in groundcrew and aircrew flavours. The Kit This is a boxed set of three kits that have been brought together to fit the theme, and includes a Messersch
  2. Hello gents, I've long had an interest in the activities of the Corpo Aereo Italiano during the Battle of Britain, so I was very pleased when I heard that ICM were adding to their range of 1/32 scale kits with a Fiat CR.42 Falco and doubly pleased when I got one and found that one of the markings options is for 83-1 of the 83a Squadriglia, 18o Gruppo of 56o Stormo CT based at Ursel in Belgium in autumn 1940. Although it is not noted in the instructions, 83-1 was the aircraft flown by the CO of 83a Squadriglia, Capitano Edoardo Molinari. Molinari was already an experienc
  3. The ICM IL-62M has been overshadowed by the Zvezda kit and never really had the attention it deserves. The few reviews I’ve seen have tended to be dismissive, along the lines of “they won’t sell any with the Zvezda kit on the market”. Well, I’m probably a minority of one but the dropped flaps and general complexity of the Zvezda kit put me off and when I noticed an ICM kit on Ebay at an attractive price I decided to give it a shot. I’m very glad I did. Despite the gigantic box in which it arrived, it turned out to be a simple, straightforward, old-school kit with the relatively fe
  4. P 204 (f) AKA a captured French Panhard AMD-35. Over 200 Panhard’s were captured by the Germans in 1940 and used by the Wehrmacht and the Waffen SS. I didn’t realise until I built this that the vehicle had dedicated front and rear driving positions. The Kit. I quite like ICM models. They build and fit well, are well priced, are not over engineered and when they come with figures you have great potential for a diorama out of the box. One thing I don’t like is the rubber wheels. Very hard to clean up and nothing seems to stick them. I have tried to depict the v
  5. MiG-25PU Soviet Training Aircraft (72178) 1:72 ICM In the early part of the Cold War, the strategic bomber was seen as the obvious means by which to deliver a nuclear payload. The interceptor - large, heavy and fast - was seen as the equally obvious countermeasure. The MiG-25 Foxbat was, in many ways, the ultimate embodiment of this technology. It wasn't particularly groundbreaking and nor was it particularly sophisticated, but it was capable of incredible speed and could carry four large missiles to high altitudes very quickly indeed. The MiG-25's sho
  6. le.gl.Einheitz-Pkw.Kfz.4 (35584) 1:35 ICM via Hannants Made mostly by three German companies, this all-wheel drive staff car designed by Stoewer was produced with different bodies during the early war, the most prevalent being the four-seat staff car, although it was used in other roles, notably the mobile light anti-aircraft units that were fitted with a twin MG34 mount for deployment, as depicted here. It was however complicated and unreliable, so was eventually replaced by the ubiquitous Kubelwagen. The Kit The box contains seven sprues
  7. Field Toilet ICM 1:35 (35800) Its an inevitable fact that military installations will need latrines in one sort or another. From the simple Shovel recce to an established toilet block. This new highly anticipated kit from ICM features more of an out house you might see a civilian setting as much as a military one. The kit on one sprue features 3 walls, a roof and the main door. Inside is the main raison d'etre the thunderbox is provided. The diorama ideals are endless from any time period. (picture from the net) Thank
  8. Every now and again, I like to paint a figure as a break from aircraft modelling. ICM's recent release of a Roman Centurion caught my eye. There is something about the combination of colours that is very appealing. It is a very nice kit to work on - sharply moulded with crisp detailing. I used Alclad for the metalwork, Mr.Color C18 for the basic flesh tone and Games Workshop acrylics for the rest including the gold tassles. The one thing missing from the kit is a decal for the decoration on the shield. I wanted to say a big thank you to @cmatthewbacon for sending me the artwork

  11. Zwillingssockel 36 Anti-Aircraft Machine Gun Mount (35714) 1:35 ICM via Hannants Zwillings is German for twin, and according to Google, sockel translates as “socket” or “base”, the former sounding vaguely suggestive. In WWII Germany, it was a twin MG34 mounted on a frame and attached to the ground/deck via a conical base with a seat for the gunner on a cantilever frame. It was often used to provide anti-aircraft cover on an S-38 S-boot in the midships position, and was also used as mobile anti-air cover in the flatbed of a vehicle. The guns could also be used
  12. Stearman PT-17/N2S-3 Kaydet (32050) 1:32 ICM via Hannants The Stearman Aircraft Corporation was founded in 1927 by Lloyd Stearman. then in 1929 it was sold to The United Transport & Aircraft Corporation. This would then split in 1934 due to US Antitrust legislation with Boing which had been a part of it becoming its own business again; Stearman then became a subsidiary of Boeing. At about this time they designed what would become their most famous aircraft the Model 75 Kaydet. The new aircraft was a conventional tail wheeled biplane with an un-cowled radial engin

  14. My entry for this groupbuild will be ICM's Model T 1917 LCP with ANZAC Crew. Plan is to raid my spare's box for some stowage and produce a small diorama base. A review of the kit and sprue shots can be seen here in @Julien review. Sprue shots far better than anything I could take.
  15. RS-132 Ammunition Boxes (35795) 1:35 ICM via Hannants The Katyusha rocket launcher was loaded with a load of RS-132 rockets, which had their origins in the early 30s from a project to create a type of smokeless rocket of a standard type and diameter. The 132 was approximately 85cm long with a diameter of just over 13cm, and fins that projected 30cm from the body. It could carry just under a kilo of explosive of one of two types. The RS was high explosive fragmentation with a destructive range of 10m, while the RBS was armour piercing, although with minimal accu
  16. My second entry will be two Australians in a little trench, the officer looking through a periscope and the sharpshooter with his pipe. Great figures from ICM. Here's the kit, same as the one I got the Chunuk Bair Kiwi from. The figures went together pretty well, the skirts of the jackets are made up of three thin pieces, really helps them look more realistic. I tried cutting away the ends of the officer's sleeves, and had to add a bit to his hand to extend his reach a bit.
  17. WWII Axis Pilots in the Cockpit (German, Italian, Japanese) ICM 1:32 (32111) Figures This new set from ICMs is no doubt designed for their new 1/32 scale kits, but can be used elsewhere. There is one pilot for each nationality with the appropriate clothing and parachute. In general the moulding is crisp and clean with plenty of detail. Like all of ICM's recent figures these are well sculpted and should build up well. Conclusion This is another great set from ICM and looks like a direct add on for their new kits (tho

  20. I’ve had a FROG Katyushka in my stash for ages. One of those kits you get out periodically, take a look and put back again quickly! I do like the work tray box though - I wonder why they never caught on? ICM do an SB-2. I was struck by the kit engineering and bought one: The idea of this build is to make the ICM kit and see if I can’t salvage the FROG one alongside it. The ICM is one of their older kits - it isn’t as sharp as their Po-2 but it’s still very impressive. The wings and ailerons take a bit of work to get sorted (on the right):
  21. https://www.facebook.com/ICM.Models/posts/1508778282648438 Not sure (and tried to do a search and nothing came up) if this has been notied - ICM seem to be teasing a silhouette of a Tiger Moth on their Facebook feed at the moment asking people to guess the plane in 1/32nd scale! Possible incoming announcement of a large scale Tiger Moth?
  22. Cessna O-2A Skymaster (Late Production) (48292) 1:48 ICM via Hannants Ltd. The O-2A Skymaster replaced the equally well-loved O-1 Bird-dog in the Observation role, adding Psy-Ops and light attack by the fitting additional equipment. It was developed from Cessna’s Type 337 Super Skymaster, and had additional windows in the pilot's side added to improve vision, the superfluous rear seats were replaced with racks of equipment including military radio gear, and hard-points were added under the wings. The twin props at either end of the stubby airframe gave it an ele
  23. Fiat CR.42AS Falco WWII Italian Fighter Bomber (32023) 1:32 ICM The Fiat CR.42 Falco (Falcon) was developed in the late 1930s at a time when the more modern monoplane fighters were starting to outstrip bi-planes in performance but it was felt they still had a place. The CR.42 was a development of the CR.32 which were used with success in the Spanish Civil War. The new aircraft would feature a supercharged radial engine and be of simple clean strong construction offering good manoeuvrability. The CR.42 was considered to be the best bi-plane available at
  24. Model T 1917 LCP with Vickers MG (35607) 1:35 ICM via Hannants Formed in 1914, the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) played a substantial part in WWI often in areas that are seldom given the prominence of the Western Front. They were a major player in Gallipoli where they were heavily mauled due to the Lions led by Donkeys approach that pervaded at the time. They also served in Palestine and Egypt, and it was the former where they used the then new Ford Model T to replace the previous vehicles that were suffering due to the poor availability of spare
  25. It’s been a little while since I posted a build. It’s very easy to get distracted by life in general, but always nice to open a box & start a new build. I quite fancied building a very early car & this fits the bill: lots of parts. Nothing in the way of a main body shell and white rubber tires. I think it will be hard to stay away from painting it all black
