  1. Guys, while I do have some other kits running (or, honestly, just resting a bit), I'm turned into a cold war state of mind due to whatever reasons (maybe because of snow and dark weather here, so this city looks much like the dark and grey Vienna I remember from my childhood days in the seventies). So, to fulfill these dark desires I plan to work this gloomy mood of into the Kineti Starfighter I have in my stash. The starfighter is a plane that has always interested me a lot, not only because of it's pure design, also of course of it's twisted history especially in German service - I sti
  2. Hi everyone This is my latest over the line finished last week. Kinetic's newish F-104G Starfighter. A really nice kit and an improvement over the older but still nice Hasegawa kit. The model is built to depict F-104G MM6529 3-01 the CO's a/c of 3 Stormo in the mid 80's. Photo in flight below. The Orpheous pod is taken from the Daco upgrade set for the Hasegawa 104's, the wheels are from Eduard and the bang seat from CMK. Other than that oob. Painted with Hataka Orange line paints on the upper surfaces and the undersides were a mix of Tamiya, Hataka and Gunze to get som
  3. Here's my Kinetic 1/48 Hornet in a special scheme commemorating the 60th anniversary of NORAD (as seen at RIAT in 2018) using decals from Leading Edge. Built for the Interceptors Group Build - build thread is here. This is my first Hornet since I built the Airfix kit when it was new in 1982. I'm very impressed with the Kinetic kit, it's much better than the older Kinetic kits I've built. The Leading Edge decals were great - it's a very comprehensive set, including masks for the canopy and the white bits of the colour scheme, with separate masks for the Kinetic and Hasegawa kits whe

    FA2 Canopy

    Quick question for the Harrier/Shar experts out there. After looking at literally dozens of pictures and references, as far as I can tell, after upgrading from FRS1 to FA2 there was no change to the canopy on the Sea Harrier. Could anyone confirm or deny this assumption? Looking at getting another Kinetic FA2, but as I'm a bit kack handed with masking canopies up, I was looking at getting the Eduard masking set, but this has been discontinued, however, the FRS1 set is still available, and looking at the design of the canopies in the kits that I have, they look exactly t
  5. Hi Everyone It's been a while since I started something new and I've wanted to have a go at one of the new Kinetic 104's for a while so after picking up this kit on ebay for a good price it wasn't ever going to sit in the stash for very long. The plastic looks very nice in the box. Kind of a combination of the still very nice Hasegawa kit and the Daco improvement set for that kit. i.e no rivets. The plastic actually feels very similar to that in the Daco set. My boxing is the Klu version but any G model can be built. I'll also probably use one or two bits from the abov
  6. This build will be of a CF-5D* in the Botswana Defence Air Wing. The aircraft was licence built for the Royal Canadian Air Force before being sold to Botswana. The kit is a Kinetic boxing: Coincidentally, the box art shows a Canadian Freedom Fighter in the same scheme that I will use for the Botswana example. (Possibly the same airframe in earlier days?) AM So far, I have some decals from Aztec And, this is the scheme I'll be aiming for The same aircraft can be seen on the Botswana Defence Force Air Wing Wiki Page - th
  7. Hi everyone, this is my first WIP thread here and its looking like it'll be a big one. Going to be building this with the following Aires ICAP II cockpit Eduard AGM-88B HARM Eduard canopy masks Fightertown decals - VAQ-141 With aid from The Modern Prowler Guide by Jake Melampy I am going to try and challenge myself with this kit, it being my first to use a resin cockpit and I have a few techniques I want to try when it comes to painting and weathering. Every thing together before I dig in.
  8. I'm building the Kinetic 1/48 Hornet as a CF-188 in a special scheme marking the 60th anniversary of NORAD. So it's an interceptor in a special scheme commemorating its interceptor role! Here's the open box shot and the two bits of aftermarket I'm using - the Leading Edge decals and Eduard steel seat belts: It's a big box with a lot of plastic in it, all of which looks very nicely moulded. The Leading Edge set is more than just a decal sheet - there are three pages of instructions, a page of walk around photos, two sheets of masks, and two sheets of decals. Looking fo
  9. Sometimes I go a bit bananas over a build.... like in this case This became a somewhat bigger project than I had anticipated and a bit of my folly shines through. My first thought with this kit was that "I will show that any model is buildable" after all the flak this particular kit had recieved I got a bit piggheaded about it. The end product is perhaps not a silk purse sewn from a sows ear...but it´s at least fake silk....or nylon It was a challenge and to be honest about it, Kinetic didn´t help matters...this kit is crap! It comes with the composite wing, wich I disc
  10. Here's a couple of cheeky pics of my recent build, The Kinetic 1/48 BAe Sea Harrier FRS.1 More pics when I've had chance to take some more.... @NG899 Many thanks for all your help Nick..
  11. Seeing as I'm going to be getting a bit more modelling time it seems ,I'll join in the gb with this kit ,I'll be painting it in the later grey camo scheme of a recce version , when i bought the kit a while back i also bought a resin pilot and martin baker mk4 resin seat,unfortunately while dry fitting last night it became apparent that these won't even nearly fit the cockpit, so its back to the kit seat ,and with a lack of any aftermarket cockpit pe stuff for the ivp/m it'll be oob , i do have a pe set for my kinetic super etendard,I'll maybe see what is usable, it's a complex fuselage bu
  12. I'm joining in with a Finnish Fouga Magister using the Kinetic 1/48 kit and Kuivalainen decals. I'm going for a quick(ish) build as I'm going to get pretty busy once the In The Navy and Lancaster GBs are going at the same time! Actually started this last Saturday but only just got round to posting. Here's the box and unopened bags of sprue (there are 2 kits in here): And here's where I'm up to. I've kept things simple in the cockpit - just a bit of dry brushing to bring out some of the detail. The jet pipes and intakes have compressor and turbine faces in them, but th
  13. It was about time for this to begin. I have been gathering information and photos for so long... Practically have been just postponing the inevitable :-) The project is about building an ICAP II prowler with as much detail as possible. This will also include the two engines exposed. The build will include the following detail sets: EDUARD - EA-6B undercarriege EDUARD - EA-6B Electronic Equipments EDUARD - EA-6B Exterior EDUARD - EA-6B Interior (just bits and pieces) EDUARD - EA-6B Wing Fold (also bits and pieces) EDUARD - EA-6B Cockpit Set (just the seats)
  14. G'day everyone. This is my 1/48 Kinetic Harrier T.4 that I completed earlier in the year as part of a Facebook group build. As for aftermarket I used Eduards seat belts, canopy masks and RBF tags. I also used Flightpaths Intake covers for the Sea Harrier. The model was painted with Gunze acrylics. The decals are a mix and match of the kit decals so I could do the specific aircraft I had references of. I am mostly happy with how this one came out apart from one of the canopy parts becoming cloudy after trying to polish out a mould flaw. Cheers, Joel
  15. I was perusing Hannants 'New Arrivals' section this morning while BM was unavailable and I found they now have stock of the Kinetic 1/48 Alpha Jet if anyone fancies one. Andy
  16. This will be my first WIP here on BM, so I have decided to build Kinetics new 1/48 T-45 Goshawk. I have just recieved the kit in the mail today when it arrived the exterior box was crushed and upon inspection o the paerts I found that one of the intakes had been torn from the sprue other than that everything was find. I'll be building this kit OOB with the exception of the seats.
