  1. Hi everybody, back to a propeller build and in 1/48, after a few jets in 1/72. At the beginning of WWII, the Regia Aeronautica acquired a number of JU 87 B-2 to equip its dive bomber wings; these were nicknamed "picchiatelli" (plural, the singular is "picchiatello") by the Italian pilots, referring to its role (dive bomber in Italian translates into "bombardiere in picchiata") but also to the fact that "picchiatello" means "slightly mad", 'cause you had to be like that for the job ... . I'll provide more info as I go, meanwhile here's the boxart the doc

  3. During a discussion on here the other week about this kit, I promised to post up some pics of mine. Turned out that I had taken some pics of this and a couple of other older builds back in the summer which I haven't posted yet, so fortunately have some decent images of it since I am unable to take any at the moment due to the weather. This is originally an Italeri kit, but this one is a Revell AG rebox from about 15 years ago. I bought it at the time and probably started it about five years later. However I messed up the bonnet as when gluing it to the hinges, the polystyrene ce
  4. Hello Everybody, this is my latest offering, the Thunderbolt II or 'Warthog'. I wanted to build this one just because it was different and I wanted to attempt the colour scheme. It was built straight out of the box with just the addition of a pilot. I made work for myself because I wanted to display it flying, and obviously the wheels do not fully retract, also I decided to show it with the flaps / air brakes closed and that went horribly wrong ! I ended up virtually rebuilding that part of both wings. top and bottom with plasticard, in fact the whole thing was retrieved from the bin twi
  5. As previously posted in the 'What have you bought recently' section of the best area on Britmodelller another Transit is on the bench and is undergoing surgery, indeed as usual most of it will not end up being used or not being cut into pieces The most important tools are on the box and have been weilded at the big bits already. I decided on the Police version for a change and thought there may be some items that could be used on other projects. I'll also be turning into a Mk.2 Phase 1 which requires mods to the grille, lights and indicators. If any Transit officianados know of any other difer
  6. Another one for my Falklands War collection - 1/72 Westland Wessex HU.5, XS486, 848. Naval Air Squadron, Flight A, RFA Regent,Operation Corporate, May-June 1982 r. Italeri kit + PE parts from Eduard. Wessex XS486 (produced 1964, serial WA160) served in the Falklands as a machine to transport equipment and people between ships and units on the islands. After the end of the war in June 1982, it took part in Operation Keyhole (aboard HMS Endurance), the purpose of which was to retake of the South Sandwich and South Georgia islands. Most of the XS486's fuselage has survived to this day
  7. I find myself in a bit of a quandary. When I started this GB I intended to build 3 planes, but have so far finished 5 with 2 more at the painting stage and there sre still almost 2 months left before the GB ends! Normally that would not be a problem as I would be involved in at least 2 and sometimes even 3 GB simultaneously but there is something of an hiatus at the moment - I will start one plane in the Gulf GB at the weekend and another in the Africa GB next month but the lockdown means I am building more quickly than usual, and so whilst I am waiting to do a bit of airbrushing, and then fo
  8. Back in the more innocent days of the 1980s, when East and West had thousands of nuclear missiles they’d thankfully never use pointing at each other, the USAF had no less than six squadrons of the brilliant A-10 based in East Anglia. These were a regular sight as pairs or fours of Warthogs flew low over the countryside, brightening up many a family holiday in those halcyon days for a young aircraft enthusiast. A-10A 80-0206 was assigned to the 81st TFW’s 92nd TFS, and based at Bentwaters, not far from Snape Maltings and Rendlesham Forest. It is almost certainly one I would have photo
  9. Hi. I always liked the delta wing configuration of the Mirage 2000 and wanted to build one. Been 1/72nd my preferred scale there are not many kits to choose from and they are all quite old. This Italeri one was released in 2016 for the 25th anniversary of the Gulf War, but is just a re-box of an old 1992 one and it really shows its age!. Besides the odd elongated shape (the actual aircraft is a bit shorter) it had many incorrect panel lines and missing detail. The main error was the lines in the radome, that I filled up and sanded. I've added some scratch details as well as the rivets. F
  10. Hello my friends.I present you my latest finished model.A mig-21 I built as a present for a friend of mine.The kit represents an ex Iraqi mig-21bis stuck in Yugoslavia when the desert strom 1 broke out.Around 1991-1992 it was flown with our national insignia.According to all the available reference material the weathering had to be at a minimum and the paintjob was brand new so that is why I coated it in semiglos varnish. Enjoy the photos
  11. I've been on a major lockdown Hawk binge this year so far, with more to come. This one is a heavily modified T-45C Goshawk based on the Italeri kit, plus Caracal decals for the eyecatching Redhawks scheme worn by a US Navy/Marines aircraft of VT-21 at NAS Kingsville, Texas. I bought the decals to do one as a Strike Test aircraft supporting the F-35 programme, but this was just too good to miss. Main changes were the underfuselage strake, new wing tips, new tailplane tips and the addition of full length Slats. I also dropped the flaps. Things I didn't do - raise the fin/rudde
  12. I was "503'd" when I posted the original and it now seems I have made a duplicate - please ignore!
  13. My first Italeri model and it’s a SAAB Viggen. A little research and I had my doubts about this kit with it being an ESCI moulding with tales of bad fits, poor detail, and wrong tail etc. Having made it it came together better then I thought. The kit has both tail versions for the JA and AJ and with raised panels on a relatively old kit the details are lacking but it’s not the worst. All the parts did need a good rework for rough edges etc. Made OOB and brush painted. Model did need a lot of additional research for colour confirmations, positioning etc as instructions are not the
  14. A close inspection from the soon to be released 1/32nd Italeri's Mirage IIIC sprues pics (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234975571-132-dassault-mirage-iiic-by-italeri-box-artdecals-release-late-september-early-october/?p=2112443) show clearly the typical MIIIE wheel brakes as an option. A new variant in view? Time will tell. V.P.
  15. Hello all Today I would like to present one of my older models, the DUKW from Italeri. I tried to simulate beach dust and OD faded by salt water. Unfortunately, details like the dashboard are (still) missing (decals got lost) and some things are not correct like the slits in the side rails. These things I will improve in the future, because I got the Tankograd 6003 Technical Manual for christmas I also got a second kit from Airfix - two are better than one Have fun! MD
  16. Having finished my Tamiya Chieftain it has been sugested that my next project should be the Italeri M32 which is in the stash. If anyone knows of anything I need to be aware of please shout out. Box and sprue pictures as soon as I liberate said kit from the loft insulation. Thanks for looking in - work starts soon Roger
  17. My second lockdown completion and another Wessex, this time a HAS3, it is the 1/72 Italeri kit with the Rotorcraft correction and External fuel tank and pylon from Air Graphics, markings came from the kit and various Modeldecal sheets some of the markings are a best guess as HMS Londons Wessex 3 seems to have been a bit camera shy and I could only find two very poor pictures of her including one that showed the name 'Cockney Rebel' but I'm happy with it _IMG9032_1 by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr _IMG9029_1 by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr _IMG903
  18. Italeri is to release a new tool 1/48th Lockheed-Martin F-35B Lightning II kit - ref. 2810 Not a bad news considering the only other available 1/48th F-35B kit is the Kitty Hawk one. Now we just need a better F-35C. Source: https://www.italeri.com/uploads/news/AY8p8Mc4VebT1GVJ5SVhR0wRFuvMlyG6nbu5dgSD.pdf Box art V.P.
  19. Italeri is to release a new tool 1/32nd MRCA Tornado GR.4 kit in 2018-2020 - ref. 2513 Source: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235015790-news-italeri-2017/ V.P.
  20. Hi all, I just joined the forum after finding lots of useful info on Coastal Forces here. I bought the Italeri Vosper MTB kit mostly on a whim, fancying building a kit and assuming a larger scale would be easier to pick up, though I now appreciate that the smallest part in any kit will be similarly sized to the smallest part in any other kit. Anyway, I have picked up some tools and glues and have made a start on parts which I’m fairly sure I can carry on with without firmly committing yet to which boat I will actually portray. The only thing I am certain of is that it will not
  21. So ,,, with my Zvezda Panther on long-term pause: ... I decided on Friday evening (yes, two nights ago!), that it would be wrong to to not complete a kit for this GB. To cut a long story short. I chose the Italeri Jagdpanther. I never got this ESCI original back in the day: Of course, back in the day, this would have had single-piece flexible tracks. The Italeri boxing is of the ESCI/ERTL version, with "upgraded" hard tracks: As time was of the essence, the tasks had to be done in the optimum order. So first up, paint the wheels Dunkelgelb 43, and then
  22. So the Christmas of 2020 was a little of a strange one, and the most of the year was no better. Constant home schooling and only essential shops being open. For most of us it was a good time to get plenty of bench time, and make out ways down the pile of kits in the stash. for me? It was a time to start fresh, go back to the basics of modelling, learn new techniques and above all come back to Britmodeller. For Christmas I asked the wife for just one thing, as the title suggests, yes a big tornado. For many years I have wanted to build a large scale tornado, and have all the
  23. Hello to all of you.I present you my latest finished model.I hope you like it. https://youtu.be/2taa1w4awNE
  24. Been a while since I posted here, hah. Completed this a little while ago (and it unfortunately accumulated a little bit of dust). Built OOB with a bit of additional wiring detail on the exhaust, some reflective film from an AFVClub tank periscope set, and some aftermarket decals and masking. Base used some Brengun tie down PE. Thanks for looking, Gaz
  25. Hello! This is my first gallery in this forum. To the MC.205 Veltro 1:48 Italeria I added a few additives in the form of resins and plates. I also used paints dedicated to Italian aviation from bilmodels company, so far these are the best paints I have had a chance to work with. As always with valorization, not everything fits perfectly, there were a few places where I had to think a little bit how to put it together. In summary, the construction went smoothly. Below are pictures of the finished model. Maybe somebody will like my sweats.
