  1. Having recently done a conversion of the Airfix 1/72 kit to an A I thought I'd go again for the group build only in 1/48. Sounds extremely exotic but basically the German government sold two JU87 A-1s to the Japanese for evaluation. I'm building the Special Hobby (I think ) kit which will be more or less oob in three colour splinter camoflauge but with hinamarus (which I ordered from ebay today) the kit, has a nice resin interior and a vac formed canopy. Not too shabby. My main reference.
  2. A build from 3 years ago: (After this long series of models posted aiming to present the case that there is life beyond the usual modeling subjects, today I post what I believe is the last of what I can offer to you on this matter. I had selected an posted these last months a large number of models of unusual planes and/or unusual media. I left out of this chronology a number of more mundane builds for one reason or another, not considering them relevant in this context. Today I post what you may see as my closing arguments regarding what I been building during the past
  3. Hello, this is from 3 years back, very nice kit, classic Hasegawa quality. Used the Eduard photoetched set, Vector resin engines, Fine Molds and Mini World MGs, plus some minor scratchbuilding. Colours are all Gunze acrylics and some alclad for the metalics. All insignia is painted on, except for small Japanese print on the aft fuselage. Not the best of efforts, but I think worth looking. Hope you like it. Cheers Alex
  4. Hallo again This is my Jake E13A1. The kit was Nichimo. One of our first Japanese aircraft. We had only Japanese literature for this model. Since I learn Japanese for some years, our teacher translated me some of the text to the photos and to the drawings. The kit was not easy, since of a lack of detail. So I obscured to entire cockpit with canvas and some cleaning tools for the ground crew. The engine was also a horror, and I took some spare engine from resin. I think Vector. Happy modelling
  5. I was drawn to this kit the first time I saw it but never actually got round to buying one. Time to put that right I think. I nearly got an original blister pack, but the seller lost it, so I have a later re-issue. Same plastic though, and very nice by all accounts. Kingkit say mine was despatched this morning so it will be a couple of days before there are photos, much less any action to report. In the meantime here is a little light reading for your edification and delight: From ATF: 01319-4/01319/61319-6/A01319 Type 97 Chi-Ha 1/76 scale. Available as 01319-4 from 1974
  6. I built these soon after Meng released them. Two-in-a-box, they were easy to build and fun to paint, especially since there were no accuracy concerns... I added a bit of cockpit detail but that's about all.
  7. Hi all, Having revisited my first-ever WIP thread on this forum this evening, with a view to replacing the many Photobucket ransom demands with appropriate pics from my Flickr album, it occurred to me that I never actually got round to completing a proper RFI thread for the finished model. I think at the time the lack of any facility for taking a decent photo, coupled with the feeling that the resulting quality (compared to the many masterpieces shown here) didn't really warrant it, meant that I just quietly forgot about it. The WIP was posted way back in February 2016,
  8. Happy New Year all! Last year I completed the illustrations for Osprey's Aircraft of the Aces #114 on Ki-61 and Ki-100 Aces, written by Nicholas Millman of http://www.aviationofjapan.com. Since the book has meanwhile been published, I'd like to show you a few samples. Research by Nick and myself. All images © Osprey Publishing.

  9. Hello all, Been off BM for a little while, lots of life happening at the moment - job change, trying to buy a house... Anyway, some modelling has taken place, including this classic 1/32 kit, that's been boxed by quite a few Japanese manufacturers - Doyusha and Swallow at least. I picked this up under a club table at Bolton for a bargain. It's at least a 1970s moulding (but so am I) but the surface detail is great- all recessed and riveted. There are some snags though - it was meant to be a motorised model (I think Tomy had the moulds first?) so there
  10. Ancient kit I picked up on the cheap at Edinburgh show last year just as something to play with. Finished ages ago just never got around to taking some pictures. Thanks for looking.
  11. Hello BMers! I have a question for those knowlegable about Japenese WWII aircraft. Please bear with the slight ramble below. I've been 'reconditioning' a model that I built at the beginning of 2015, when I returned to the loving embrace of Mother Model Making. The kit is the venerable Airfix 1/72 Aichi D3A 'Val'. While randomly looking at pictures of 'Vals' on the interweb I came across several pictures of captured Japanese aircraft, none of which were 'Vals'. Now to the question. Did any of the Allies capture and test fly a Aichi D3A Val, in particular the sub-type represented
  12. This will be my first armour build after only doing aircraft before, so I'll hopefully learn a lot along the way. Thanks for looking, Jason
  13. I am trying to find some modelling magazines for Japanese merchant ships but am not having a very successful time on Google; mainly as I don't know what to look for. I've used the heading above in the search engine and just come up with Japanese female models. Can anyone suggest some titles, which I can then search on, that have details for modelling Japanese merchant ships, or photos etc? I do have the two volumes of "Visual Guide to Japanese Wartime Merchant Marine" and would like to find other magazines on Japanese merchant ships. cheers Mike
  14. Hi all, well here goes: my first 'WIP' thread on this forum. In truth the plane is all but complete (in my eyes anyway) but I have amassed a collection of progress pics along the way which I have now managed to upload to Photobucket. I won't post them all at once, instead I will drip-feed the pics here - mainly because I'd like to gain maximum benefit from people's suggestions, hints, tips, ideas etc along the way. For a bit of background, this is my first WW2 build in about 20 years, and although I know already of some mistakes I've made, I can at least say that it's a significant i
  15. Hello everyone! This is what I have recently finished. An absolutely oob new Airfix Nakajima B5N2. There is nothing really special about this built, it went together pretty well and generally was fun to build
  16. Good evening Gentlemen, I'm the new one. After a while of only window shopping, I thought it's about time to show something of my own stuff at britmodeller. Coincidentally I've just finished a model... The Mitsubishi Ka-14 as it appeared in the Hayao Miyazaki movie "The Wind Rises". It's a very nice kit and went together without any fuss. I've just added IJN seat belts by Fine Molds, a hand hold below the cockpit sill and the foot step at the belly from scratch. The model has been sprayed with acrylic paints from the Tamiya range. Comments are welcome, please enjoy the pictures.
  17. I discovered one of these in my stash hidden as a freebie inside another kit and thought it might look nice next to my Judy one day. It's all sealed and in good order minus the box so a nice addition to the 'shelf breakers'. Haswgawa Toyota Starter Truck Gb http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MjYzWDUwMA==/z/dqAAAOxy4dNS2TTG/$_35.JPG http://www.hasegawausa.com/product-images/hsgs1817bs01t-lg.jpg (I see once again it's converting pix to urls...pita!) Obviously not a popular subject (only found 1 BM build pic, although hints of at least 2 more) but I am hoping someone can point to pix, plans etc of t
  18. It went a different direction than planned so lets try again in the correct sub-forum ********************************** OK I need a break from my Wiffy Walrus (those struts nearly broke me!). Here what I picked off the shelf: Yokosuka D4Y3, model 33, Suisei The box says 1/72 but a little research suggests 1/75. I'm not a rivet counter or micrometer user and as other reviews say it's basic but otherwise fine that's good enough for me. I did come across a query on fuselage diameter but this could be related to the iffy scale. Instructions are a single double sided A4. As per the plast
  19. The Toyota G series of trucks was built in huge numbers by the Japanese with the GB alone amassing 19870 units between 1938 and 1942. Hasegawa first released this 1/72 version complete with Hucks Starter in 1978. Unfortunately it's noted as 'retired' on their site but it pops up occasionally from the usual 2nd hand suppliers. I was planning on starting it in a week or two but plans change and out it came ahead of schedule. So is it worth building?...lets find out..
  20. As I have 3 Japanese trainers in the stash I may as well tackle one as a practice run once I return to the fold properly. However I will need the correct paint (or near enough as I can make it factory fresh or faded). Emptying boxes I found I have Revell #30 but am unsure about it's suitability. Is it passable or is there a Humbrol or Tamiya option as ideally I don't want to get into mixing %s or special ordering (preferably available in Antics) I know the it's been discussed before as I've read similar requests at least once, but as usual Murphy's law says if I want a specific thread I won'
  21. I bought an old copy of Model Art No.22 last week (pictures below), mainly as it has plans for converting Japanese merchant ships to seaplane carriers of WW2. It wasn't cheap but I would like to get more of these; however, I noticed other copies only had details of Japanese aircraft or warships. Does anyone on this forum know: 1. which other copy numbers had merchant ship conversion plans? 2. is there a source in the UK/EU where I could get other copies at a reasonable price? cheers Mike
  22. Turned Japanese Barrel sets 1:32 Master We’ve recently had quite an influx of new barrel sets from Master Models with several in 1:32 scale. These three sets continue in this vein with replacement barrels for 1:32 Mitsubishi Zero kits. No matter how many sets I get to see, it’s still amazing how Master produce them with such finesse and detail, making them a must have to replace what can be rather clunky styrene parts. Only the first set has been designed for a specific kit, the fabulous Tamiya A6M5 Zero and contains not only the machine gun barrels, with separate cooling sleeves,
  23. Hello, I'm presenting my Special Hobby's A5M4 Claude in 1:32 scale - model represents the machine from Soryu carrier, pilot PO1/c Matsuo Hagiri, summer 1939. The kit contains numerous resin and PE parts, so I did not use any other aftermarkets. Painting was done using Mr. Hobby Super Metallic metalizers and acrylics. Hope you enjoy!
  24. Pearl Harbor to Coral Sea Book by AIRfile The surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, on the island of O’ahu, Hawaii, by Japanese naval aircraft on the morning of December 7 1941 brought the United States into the war which, until then mainly involved the forces of Britain against Germany and Italy. Immediately following this attack, Japanese forces attacked Thailand, Malaya, the Philippines, Guam, Wake Island and Midway. These attacks brought Britain and the United States to declare war on Japan and became known as the Pacific War. Over the following weeks Japan extended its operations, i
