  1. After the Bf.109G-6 "Gustav" (link) and J-87G-1/2 Stuka (link) Border Model is to release a 1/35th Nakajima B5N2 Type 97 "Kate" kit - ref. BF005 Source: https://tieba.baidu.com/p/7911789626 (message now deleted!) V.P.
  2. Hi there! Browsing through my old topics, I came upon quite a lot showing many build started, but then stopped dead in their tracks for a number of (bad) reasons. For most of them, quite simple, the kit did his first and last flight straight to the bin... but some of them survived! It happen that a year ago, I've opened one thread dealing with three Japanese Army Fighters. Two of them now serve as test bed for paint, but at least the third was finished... and not posted over here, I believe. Here it is! _____________________________________________ Here is my interpretation of a Nakajima Ki-27 Otsu from 68 Shinbutai, flown by Yamagushi Iichi, from Chiran, Kyushu, Japan 1945. The kit come straight from the 70's, from Mania, then taken up by Hasegawa. I can't tell much about the shape and dimensions, but it looks like a very nice little kit for its time, you have to see the details of rivets on the wings from close up to believe it. No wonder it's still released as it is by Hasegawa nowadays without any corrections! It was, like many others, an old build started a long time ago, with only a few parts assembled, that I've re-started early in 2022, to finish in the spring, no later than april. Here is the build report Let's have a look at the pictures!
  3. Hi there, Please let me show you my current occupation. With a sudden interest in building something with an all metal finish, I investigated the shelf of doom and it didn't took long to find this: - A Ki-61 that was barely started. In fact, I did nothing else that cutting a few parts off the sprues before putting the box back on the shelfes - I added a Ki-44, brand new this one, for good measure, telling myself that I could probably save time building them together as they must have a few colours in common. How wrong I was... - Latter, I added a Ki-27 found down in the stash in a plastic bag. Didn't had the heart to put it back there.
  4. Hello guys, this is my currently the last completed model. It's an old Hasegawa model. Here's the picture, enjoy it.
  5. This is the ICM 1/72 Nakajima Ki-27b 'Nate' built for the Less Than a Tenner Group Build, painted to represent the aircraft of Lieutentant Hyoe Yonage, 24th Sentai 2 Chutai, stationed at either the Philippines or China in December 1941: The kit was built out of the box but the decals used were from a Print Scale sheet on the Ki-27. This particular camouflage scheme was available as part of the kit decals, but they were not very good. The kit was painted with Humbrol and Revell enamels, and Lifecolor Acrylics. The three-colour scheme for the Nate, especially the indigo caught my eye and chose the colours based on this blog post by Nick Millman: http://www.aviationo...sen-part-7.html Consensus holds this kit to be the most accurate Nate in outline, with fine-too fine for a brush-painter like me-surface detail and some unusual engineering choices for assembly. These can be best characterized as 'interesting' and must have worked like a dream for the first release of the kit. Here it is compared to a 1/144 model of the same subject from FE Resin I built last year: For the record, the kit cost me 6 pounds 50 from Hannants. More information on the build (and what I thought of some of the engineering choices) can be found on the progress thread here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234955850-icm-172-ki-27-finished/ Thanks for looking! Comments are welcome.
  6. Build 5 I love 1/144, but it's sometimes hard to find unusual subjects in this scale without resorting to expensive resin or poor quality short run injection kits. So occasionally (when I find a bargain) I pick up the odd F-Toys, J-Wings or Cafereo models. These models come ready painted and usually have some of the marking already applied. Luckily this one has a full decal sheet and no markings, which saves me having to scavenge through the spares box. It's going to get a full paint strip, clean up of parts, rebuild and spray job. So with the exception of stripping it, it just like building a normal kit. Price: 99p from eBay.
  7. Hello all, Here are some recent builds of mine in 1/72 and 1/144 (mostly the latter). The first is a Swiss Airforce Bf-109E J-366 from Fliegerkompanie 8, stationed at Avenches airfield in the summer of 1940. The aircraft was eventually lost in an accident on the 10th August 1942. The kit is the recent Airfix one boxed as a Starter Set, and had problems with the dihedral and an oversize instrument panel decal as happened to some other kits. The latter was not a problem as I had to re-colour the panel's components to match a Swiss one. The smaller pieces are connected to the sprues by annoyingly large gates, and given that the plastic is quite soft, this led to me damaging some of them..Apart from that, the kit was a pleasure to build. The model was painted RLM 70 over 65 (Humbrol 91 over 65). I used one of Kora Models' 1/72 six (or seven?) decal sets for Swiss Bf 109s. They were not great, as they tore easily and the white was quite transparent. As they were ALPS-printed decals, I ended up cutting a fair amount of backing film when talking the crosses off, which made it impossible to mask around the crosses and paint them over. In the end, I used crosses and serial numbers from a second option over the first set to make them look opaque enough. The decal instructions, however, helpfully include what modifications are necessary to make it a Swiss Bf-109E and also include some resin parts for this purpose. I had replaced the engine cannon breech bulges with provided ones and the control column with a spade-grip type. The wing cannon barrels were to be reshaped but this didn't work out as well...The gunsight needed to be changed as well but I just used the one provided with the kit. Some of the sliver chipping on the wings is unintentional- it's a result of the hard Swiss water I used to thin the varnish with. Next is a 1/144 Nakajima Ki-27 from FE Resin. The kit is well-detailed for its scale though one wing is narrower than the other (unfortunately I caught this rather late in the the build). The model built represents the mount of Lieutentant Hyoe Yonaga of the 24th Sentai, 2nd Chutai, in the Philippines in 1941. This was one of two marking options provided in the kit, the other being a (relatively) boring overall IJAAF grey-green (sic). I mixed the colours from Humbrol and WEM enamels based on information from Nick Millman's blog. The aotake for the cowling interior was from Tamiya acrylics over silver. Next is a 1/144 Fairy Kikaku Curtiss-Wright CW-21B of the KNIL, shown here as a 'not-quite-what-if' double with the Ki-27: This was a much cruder kit than the FE Resin one, with the small bits (the fuselage, wings and empennage being cast as a solid piece) requiring a lot of clean-up. The camouflage is Olive Drab and Medium Green over aluminium. The model (and the others) look less shiny in real life than they do in these photos- I used the flash on them in my flat to blot out the effects of the 'warm' (i.e. yellow) lighting I use. Finally, here is a 'what-if' of the Bristol Type 148, a competitor to the Westland Lysander. I built it as a COIN aircraft along the line of T-6s or T-28s used in colonial wars, in the service of the Zairean Air Force following the Congo Crisis. The rockets are from a Valom Bristol Buckingham, the prop and spinner from an AZ Spitfire kit and the cannon from an AZ/Legato Hurricane kit. I posted some more images of the same craft in the What-If forum as well. Thanks for looking! Comments are welcome.
