  1. I thought I would share with everyone my latest build, Italieri's 1/48 scale Ju 87D-5. This kit is not without its problems, and to fix all of them is probably beyond my skill level, so I chose fix some and as long as it looked like a Stuka I would not worry about the rest. It was also an excuse to add a few extras that I had been wanting to do such as exposing the engine, gun bays and undercarriage using some of the aftermarket bits I had been hording for a while. The engine turned out to be a bit more effort than I expected, this was a modified Aries unit with the kit oil cooler shortened to suit. Firewall and engine bearers were from another set and were modified and detailed to get the engine to sit level and closer to the firewall. With every build there is always one cock-up and this was no exception. After taking care to paint the internal and external frames on the canopy properly I managed to miss this on the front sliding section and paint them all as external. Oh well, it's an excuse to build another and try to get it right next time! The model was finished with Vallejo paints and weathered with a clay wash and oils. This is something I need mode practice with as I don't think the oils came out too well but, every model is a learning experience! The cluster bomb on the centre line came with the kit but the wing mounted gun pods were from the Italieri weapons set. I'm not sure how accurate this load-out would be but I have been wanting to use the gun pods on a Stuka for ages and this was the time. Enough waffle, here are the pictures. I hope you enjoy and feel free to comment/criticise.
  2. Evening All, Allow me to present my Fiat 131 Abarth in the Alitalia scheme and built from the Italieri kit. I normally build aircraft but like to indulge in the occasional race or rally car although I have to admit the last one I built must have been over 10 years ago so I think the change has done me some good. This one represents the 1979 1000 Lakes winner and had been in my stash so long the decals had cracked. The drive to dig this one out and actually build it came from a 70s theme Club group build ending in the December meeting. An email to Italieri and a few weeks later I had a fresh decal sheet and we were game on. Despite its age, the kit went together relatively easily. The only issues being the fit of the rear suspension with the exhaust and the engine to chassis being a bit vague. I added some wiring to the engine bay and seat belts from painted masking tape with buckles from the spares box. Other than that it was a straight from box build. Enough waffle from me, here are the photos and I hope you like it.
  3. Afternoon all, Her is my entry for the GB - Italieri's M4 Sherman based on the movie staring Brad Pitt. II haven't built any kind of armour in a long time. I think the last attempt ended in failure during the Tiger STGB which was a while ago.... However this is a Sherman so it has less road wheels and rubber band tracks (unlike the Zvezda Tiger) so it should be doable for me at least. The kit comes with lots of stowage very much like the film version with log applicate armour and plenty of baggage. No crew figures though so i will have a think about whether i will add some. Any way heres a few pics. TFL Cheers Greg
  4. I’m thinking about purchasing a 1/48 Hercules, looking at a 80’s cab. My question is do I look at the old Italeri model with the old engines/prop or the latest RAF C5 moulding with the Attack Squadron engine conversion? Does the kit build well and AM wise is there much or scratch build required, especially if the ramp is down. Steve.
