  1. Hi everyone, Not been posting RFIs for a while for various reasons. No time to take photoes, no sunny weather to take good photoes, no time to write articles... Now it's time to change things so I'm presenting here the photoes of my latest model I just finished this week. This is a very well known Jet Provost, but not an Airfix kit which has been invading RFI section recently. I've gone the other way and challenged Sword kit of T.5. Not much aftermarket or scratchbuilding applied. I had Pavla MB mk.4 seats, Reskit wheels (main wheels only as their front w
  2. On holiday at home relaxing watching railway drivers eye view video's on & spotted two aircraft parked on an industrial estate in Knutsford - Jet Provost & what appears to be a Hawk, further investigation via Google street view aso shows a Tornado at the same premesis. Anybody know the background? On the left at around 57 min 10s into the followng video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSr0EXGxpdE
  3. Hunting Percival Jet Provost T.4 1:72 Airfix The Jet Provost was designed by Hunting Percival as a replacement for their Percival Provost, a piston engine basic trainer. Even though producing the Provost they anticipated the need for a Jet trainer going forward. This initial work was started in 1951, at this time they consulted with the RAF as to the needs of the RAF Training Command. Although initially it was a private venture the government did come on board and in 1953 an order for a test batch of aircraft was placed. The new "Jet" Provost would use as m

  5. Am planning to build the Airfix Jet Provost in armed configuration that was in service with the South Yemen Air Force. http://www.acig.info/CMS/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=75&Itemid=1 Photos showed that it carried Sura rockets and I have that in my spares box which comes from the Matchbox Strikemaster kit. I also noticed that the armed Jet Provost are (obviously) equipped with gunsights above the instrument panel and a standby comapass(?) hanging on its windscreen centre frame.. However photos I'd seen are not in the best resolution and angles to show c
  6. So having built a JP3, into a Jet Provost T4, I'm now going to transform this JP4 into this Jet Provost T3, Parts, looking familiar. This is my progress so far.
  7. Hi, I am about to start painting on my Airfix Jet Provost - scheme is White, Red, LAG. Airfix suggests H174 for the Red, indicating it to be BS537 in the instructions. I also have here Xtracolor X014 Red Arrows Red, also labeled BS537. Comparing the two, Xtracolor looks a little lighter and a bit more one the 'orange' side than H174. I am not sure which paint to use. Does anyone know which one is the better match? TIA Ingo
  8. Hi Folks There have been a few top class builds of the recent Airfix Jet Provost posted in RFI of late so I decided to post my humble contribution. I give you the recent Airfix 1/72 Jet Provost T3 finished in Light Aircraft Gray(from the Mr.Hobby range) and decals from the Xtradecal set for the Airfix Kit. The hi-vis markings were for the most part ok to use but getting them to follow the curve of the leading edge of the wing was less than successful with the solid areas of dayglo decals being quite rigid and brittle which resulted in cracking and splitting of the decal. I patched up the da
  9. Been in a bit of a modeling funk recently - finding it hard to build up any enthusiasm for the hobby. Two weekends ago, my wife and daughter were out of town, so I thought I'd give the new Airfix JP a go - a nice, simple build, no complications, just the thing to get the modeling juices going. As I was looking at the boxes in my stash, I thought to myself that perhaps I could build the Airfix Vampire as well, while I was at it - similar, simple colour scheme, so I could airbrush both at the same time. While I was contemplating that idea, I spied the Airfix Gnat box - same scheme......
  10. Hi, here's my latest, done as a relaxing build over the hols to take my mind off certain crap that's going on in my life at present.

  11. Photo Etch Detail Set for Airfix Jet Provost T.3/T.3A 1:72 Eduard Airfix's new Hunting Percival Jet Provost has been around for only a few months, but our Ready for Inspection Forum has already been populated with some rather excellent examples of the finished article. Now Eduard have released a set pre-painted photo etched details for the cockpit and airframe, as well as a set of pre-cut masks for the canopy and landing gear.

  12. Really enjoyable new-tool kit, needing only minor tweaks. This was a pre-release kit built for the current (November) issue of Airfix Model World, so there were no decals included; I used Xtradecals 72250 instead.
  13. Keeping it simple...old Airfix JP3 I don’t know about you, but sometimes I despair about how long it takes to finish a model. It seems to me that most kits are on the workbench for 3 or 4 months or so before they begin to look like the aircraft I intended. There must be a quicker way! With this in mind I set out to see if I could finish something within a week. The result was that no – I couldn’t – but this one only took 10 days so it felt like a victory of some kind. I chose something simple and they don’t come much simpler than the old Airfix Jet Provost T3. Bearing in mind a new JP3
  14. ....... Just had a strange thought!! The last few Airfix announcements have been on a Friday and roughly two weeks apart. So it's been two weeks since we heard about the B-17 and Bomber Respply set and two weeks before that when he heard about the new 1/48 Meteor F.8 ...so... Should we be expecting a new Airfix release announcement today?? Cheers.. Dave.
  15. Hi everyone My next build... Should be fun! All the best Iain
  16. Finally getting around to posting this build which I've been working on for about a month on and off. All being well it should be completed by the deadline for this GB. Thoughts on the kit: I'm pretty happy with it all said. The detail is refined and crisp, the resin adds a certain something, and it goes together well for a limited run kit. The only bits that I've had significant trouble with have been fitting the tub to the fuselage and installing the instrument panel, both of which were probably my fault. For reasons best known to myself I decided to try to force the fuselage together as I

  19. I was wondering if any ex RAF types or long term residents of Cumbria could give me a word to the wise? I lived on the northern edge of the English Lake DIstrict between the years of 1982 and 1991 and every day was a free air show. I saw just about every aircraft in the RAF inventory and quite a few US and other NATO types as well, but I can't for the life of me remember if I saw any Jet Provosts in this time. Given that the RAF used them until the early nineties it seems logical that I must have, but I can't recall a single instance of having done so. The Tucanos that replaced them are a regu
  20. Well, here we are. I'll be building the Fly JP 5 like Filler. All being well I'll be starting some time in the next few weeks once my Wessex is completed. I'm looking forward to adding this one to the collection and will appreciate and tips, advice, and feedback as I go along. My first impressions of the kit are that it's nicely moulded with sharp detail, I've not built a limited run kit before so no doubt I'll come across a few issues but it can't be any worse than some of the 50 year old airfix kits that I've done before.
