  1. Another placeholder. This kit was first released in 1983, but it was a few years before I bought it, in what seems to be the original box style: I will probably build the more colourful of the two subjects (VMA-331), as opposed to the toned-down aircraft from VMA-214 "Black Sheep" on the front cover. The VMA-331 aircraft has the early fin tip. There is nothing supplied for the outer wing pylons, so I will rustle something up from the spares box:
  2. Alongside the single-seat 1983 Italeri A-4M, I will be building the 1998 two-seat OA-4M variant, which shared as much of the A-4M tooling as as was possible. Markings are included for two USMC H&Ms (Headquarters and Maintenance) aircraft.
  3. Hello folks, inspired by my friend Francis who recently built an M47 Patton, I decided to present the Croatian Balkan War version called “AZDAJA”, that means “DRAGON”. Look the real tank...these are the only two photos about AZDAJA that I found. Note that the tank does not have the headlights: and have the T80E1 links.... For this project I will use the M47 Patton from Italeri, kit number 6447, and I will added a set of photo-etched and resin parts from DEF Model, code 35024, plus the set of metal tracks T80E1 type from Fruilmodel, code
  4. OK with time running short on the GB and lots of other kits in various states of destruction what better to do than to start another (actually I'm tempted to build a F117 for the GB too). So I'd been planning to do this in the Tornado GB last year but didn't get around to starting it... I seem to be continuing in my recent theme of yellow/brown or black vehicles! It's a pretty basic kit, so hopefully not going to take a massive amount of time, I'm just planning on doing it straight OOB, there doesn't seem a whole heap of bits in the box, in fact Scalemates suggests it may
  5. 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.
  6. My entry for this group build, the Martin B-57B Canberra operated by the 8th Bomb Squadron out of Bien Hoa AB and then Da Nang AB in 1964/65. It didn't take the Canberra long to become well-known on the tactical scene and they picked up the call sign 'Yellow Bird' based upon the squadron colours (the sister13th BS were 'Red Bird'). I am building the 1/72nd Italeri B-57B Canberra OOB and it will be finished in aluminium. I will be using the decals from the kit. I will also 'ghost' build a second B-57B which will be in the later SEA camouflage scheme coded as 'PQ'. I am looking for a straight f
  7. In 1940 the Me321 Gigant transport glider was hastily designed for Operation Sealion, the invasion of England. It could accommodate 200 troops or 22 tonnes of cargo. Initially three Bf110s were required with rocket assistance, to achieve take-off. Later the Ju290A-1 or He111Z proved more practical. The Me323 was a development from the Me321, designed to overcome the problem. Ing Degel utilised captured French Gnome-Rhone 14N radial engines and the six-engined D variant was developed. The D-1 could carry 120 troops, 60 stretcher cases or equivalent cargo. It was an invaluable supply transport o
  8. Here is my latest diorama, showing a JU-87B at Caen in France during August 1940. The aircraft is from Italeri, Kubelwagen and 2 figures from Tamiya and the rest of the figures are from ICM. Hope you like it, and all comments welcome
  9. Hello to all of you guys and girls.I have finished the old Italeri F-117A as a quick and pleasure build.The kit itself its quite nice and the fit is really good.I have rescribed the panel lines.I did add some simple cockpit details like some knobs and seatbelts.The decals used are for the only f-117a to be lost in combat and the decals came from balkan models set for the downed ac over yugoslavia.I have made a video build that I have posted on my youtube chanel so if interested feel free to look it up on the following link. Regards,Dragan
  10. Hello guys.This one I built OOB for a customer of mine.The fit is not the best but not the worst I have seen.The plastic is a bit soft but it is easy to sand.The panels are pretty shallow and wide but with a light pass of the rescribing tool can be made much deeper and able to hold a wash.I painted it in ak interactive colors and the clear varnishes are from vallejo. Enjoy the photos .
  11. Here is my take at two Vietnam Huns. Pretty straightforward builds using the Italeri kits with a bit of Eduard PE in the cockpits. As both kits only come with a closed canopy, I cut off the respective windscreens and built the canopy actuators from scratch. On the F-100F, I added the appropriate antennae under the nose/belly and on the tail fin, while drilling out the cooling intake on the tail, to portray one of the early Wild Weasels. I added a Shrike missile (which was typically carried on the port in-board position) and rocket launchers from the spares box (I believe from Itale
  12. This is one of two entries for this GB. I built this kit twice back in the early 1980s from the original ESCI boxings, one as a Flammpanzer III, the other as the M. At he time, I never got the kit of the M/N with the side and turret "skirts". The Italeri kit is the M/N version, including the extra sprue with the armour skirts and mounts, as well as the 75mm L/24 barrel, mantlet and other details. It also has the "hard" tracks introduced in the ESCI/ERTL era. The tracks are for the Panzer IV, and have to be cut to size for the Panzer III.
  13. With I’d gone for the Revell like my son did, shape looks better and crisper mouldings than these Italeri methinks. I’m not great with 1/72 so just a bit of fun with an unrealistically close pairs landing. Made & painted 6m apart hence different paints used & different shades. Eduard ASRAAMs on each, and put I pilot in each... PJ Productions I think? Thanks for looking.
  14. Well in between painting sessions on the BPBC and things being a bit fragile to transport I took this into the Model club on thursday night to start and I nearly had it done in a couple of hours while chatting and building with good friends only a few bits to add before painting and it comes with a couple of funny looking crew figures Hmm one looks familiar with that mask beefy
  15. 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
  16. Here is my 1/72 Italeri Lockheed Hercules C5, ZH883 of 47 Sqn, RAF Brize Norton from 2016. Built OOB using the Xtracolor decals set for the '50 Years' of Hercules operations. The only whitling that was done was moving the position of the prop blades to the feathered position as they would be normally on the ground, from the fined in flight position for flight as they are in the kit. Painted with Xtracolor enamels, mainly NATO Green with some white and blacks added to try and get the change in shades that are evident on the real aircraft. Maybe not an exact match but I don't thin
  17. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Italeri M8 Greyhound, built with the addition of Brengun photo etch. Painted with Gunze/Mr. Hobby acrylics, weathered with artist oils and Tamiya pigments. The model represents a vehicle operating in France, 1944. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. The Italeri kit was originally released in 2004 and is still the only 72 scale injection-moulded model on the market. I upgraded the plastic parts with the Hauler/Brengun set (HLH72098), which contains both photo-etch and resin pieces. The kit decals
  18. B-25 Mitchell Wheels (4418) 1:48 CMK by Special Hobby Kit wheels are generally in two halves, which means you have the resultant joins to deal with, possible mould-slip issues on single part wheels, and sometimes less than stellar detail due to the moulding limitations of styrene injection technology, especially in the tread department. That's where replacement resin wheels come in, with their lack of seamline and superior detail making a compelling argument. They are also usually available at a reasonable price, and can be an easy introduction to aftermarket an
  19. Hello everybody, here's my latest off the bench, Italeri's 1/48 Stuka in the markings of 239a Squadriglia of the Regia Aeronautica. A quick summary: KIT: Italeri 1/48 Junkers Ju-87 B2-R2, No. 2769 AIRFRAME: Junkers JU-87 B2, M.M. 7085, Captain Giuseppe Cenni's mount PAINTS: the camouflage was airbrushed using Tamiya (my own mix) for the underside RLM65, again Tamiya XF27 Black Green for RLM70, Lifecolor Dark Green for RLM71. Two different versions of home brewed RLM02 for the interiors, one using Lifecolor paints (more of a grey hue, I used it to paint the cockpit an
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. Having almost completed the M51, and having a load of work to do on the new modelling room, I was looking for something to build that would fire my enthusiasm. After going through my stash, it came down to two contenders; An AFV Club M5A1 (Early) Stuart (Stuart Mk.V), or a Canadian Kangaroo ISV. From the title, you can see which one I have chosen, although, I might make a start on the Stuart to run in parallel. We’ll see. So, first, a bit of waffle. The “fatherly beginnings” is an indication of these vehicle’s history. They were converted from Priest 105mm SPGs. 72 of them had their 105mm
  23. New lockdown, new model: life does bring its consolations. After a couple of Hunters and a Vampire last year, I've warmed further to the 50s jets theme. In so doing I became interested in the RAF's brief but successful relationship with the F-86/CL-13 Sabre, just four short years from 1952 to 56. This is the Fujimi kit, rebadged recently as Italeri, and I had a lot of fun with it. Using references here on BM and elsewhere I made a number of changes to turn the F-86F into a Canadair Mark 4. I missed a couple of details but hopefully the errors aren't too visible. I also moved the wing pylons in
  24. Finally finished. Italeri van converted to Mk.2 Phase One Extra Long Chassis Cab with Beavertail Bed. Finished to represent a restoration in progress with the cab awaiting a paint job having had some body panels replaced and the previously applied vinyl stripes and paint rubbed down. Work in progress here I've not decided if a vehicle will be strapped to the bed as yet but the Mini gives an idea of fit. Thanks for dropping by for a look see.
