  1. B-26C-50 Invader Korean War (48284) 1:48 ICM via Hannants The A-26 was built by Douglas back in WWII as their successor to the A-20 Havoc. Two types were designed, The C with a glass bomber nose and the B with a full metal nose filled with either 6 or 8 .50cal machine guns, which coupled with the three in each wing gave it quite a punch, deserving of the Strafer title. It also had a pair of turrets on the fuselage mid-upper and dorsal positions, which were both operated by a single gunner using a complex remote mechanism that flipped between the upper and lower
  2. Hello! As promised, here part 2 of my little Sabres. I built them in parallel, made 2 out of 3 kits, but this one i finished earlier in September 1994. Windshield, rear fuselage and most decals are from Matchbox. Now i found out, the etch was early eduard 72-008, here i used the slats on the different wing. Miss Louise did not live long, was part of 4th FIW, 334th FIS. Written off 29. May 1952. Take off accident at Kimpo K-14. Pilot Jimmy L. Schneider had more luck. I hope you like the tiny missie!
  3. A useful reference from the book 'With the carriers in Korea’ by John Lansdown' about the black and white identification stripes that Sea Furies and Fireflies had painted on their Wings and fuselage. Chapter Nine, HMS Ocean 5 May - 8 Nov 1952. Page 279: 'both squadrons (this would be 802 with Sea Furies and 825 with Fairey Fireflys) eliminated the black and white identification stripes on wings and fuselages of all the aircraft, an Admiralty instruction that had been issued so that enemy MiGs would have more difficulty seeing them'. The instruction was issue
  4. Using any viewpoint you choose the T-33 is one of the most important planes in whole aviation history. Being the most numerous variant of the most advanced WW2 jet (P-80) and the most numerous jet trainer of the Western World it is the "must have" in any aircraft model collection. Nevertheless I cannot find the answers for several questions that have arisen during the preparations to build a USAF machine: Did any T-33s used in the Korean War sport OD uppersurfaces (like the RF-80) and yellow lettering or overall pale grey camo (like early P-80A/Bs) ? Were there any USAF T-33s used
  5. So, Italeri F4U-4B Corsair. The model is well known with all its advantages and shortcomings, however, i'll briefly list them. Pros: - availability and low price; - the only model that allows you to build"honest" cannon-armed F4U-4B; - acceptable accuracy; - Decal for three "Korean" options. Cons: - detailing to date poor; - the wing of the model is unified with other Italeri Corsairs and depicts the all-metal wing of the F4U-5 and other late versions; - thick cockpit glazing; - panel lines in some places inaccurate; - too shallow chassis niches; - The decal has inaccur
  6. This is the old Monogram 1/48 MiG 15 from the 70's. Dad had this kit kicking around the house for at least 30 years and he finally gave it to me so I thought I'd build it. It's not too bad, but scales out to around 1/44, so any aftermarket bits you have in 1/48 will be way too small. The fit is decent but the canopy is fairly poor. I added some instrument decals to the cockpit to add a little detail. Markings are those of Maj I. P. Golshevskij who apparently flight night time interception missions over Korea. Decals from the spares box and I made the front FOD cover.
  7. Hello Britmodellers, second of my three tiny "Donnerbüchsen", this are pictures from 2004 made for ModellFan. One picture was in FSM too. On Film. I like them much, so i didnt make new ones...... This was the personal jet of Commander Col. Joseph Davis... I hope you like it! Cheers, Tom
  8. I know that U.S. carrier deck colours reverted to grey from blue on the cessation of World War 2 but I'm not certain which grey. I have plans to build an Essex class carrier converted to the LPH role. As helicopter carriers they did not get the angled or steel flight deck upgrades of other CV- types so would like to find out which colour these wooden decked carriers would have been painted postwar. There are two periods that I am interested in; a pre-LPH helicopter carrier (i.e. still had CV- allocation) of the Korean war era 1950-1952; and LPH helicopter carrier of the Vietnam war era aro
  9. Hello mates, this is one of the few survivors of the ZELL zero lenght launches made by my younger brother when i wasn't at home so much (starting with 16)! It's a F-86F Tamiya 1:100 from the set with MiG-15. It was in pieces until yesterday but i rescued it! This is for Courageous! How can i quote from another thread, i dunno Cheers!
  10. Hello mates! Here is my little blue Marine Corps Grumman Cat in 1:72. Marine Air Group 33, US Marine Corps, Pohang AB, Korea 1952. I bought this in the nineties and finished the build in 2001. I did a lot of detailing, scribing and extra stencil decals, otherwise it is straight from the box. This was a really good kit at that time, with very realistic outlines. I only changed the cross section at the rear. I hope you like it too! Cheers!
  11. Hello mates! (there are 5 pictures, trisonic albeback52 answered faster as i could write i know, i´m a little slow modeller This is my small Korean mud mover of 1952. My small Star is a real sex bomb to me. She is quite old, i built her in 2002 with some eduard etch and cannulas instead of cannons. But real beauty never fades, even in 1:72. I never did a shoot with her, so nobody knows her until now. I hope, she is also nice to you..
  12. Marine Corps Tank Battles in Korea ISBN : 9781612005317 Casemate UK The US Marine Corps is fairly unique in that where ever they operate they generally rely on their own Air Power and own support elements including heavy armour, today operating the M1 Abrams in this role. Korea would seem a strange place for tank battles with its mix of mountains and paddy fields but the USMC tankers would servce with distinction. In Korea initially the US Marine tankers were thrown into defending the Pusan perimeter. He hastily formed tank cre
  13. Hi, You probably know this, you don't complete anything for months then two in two days. I finally finished the second aircraft in 1/48 for my Korean War collection a Grumman F9F-2 of VF111 Sundowners, operating from the USS Valley Forge in 1952. My first was a Corsair F4U-4 flown by Thomas Hudner who won the Congressional Medal of Honour whilst flying with VF32 from USS Leyte. Great simple kit to build, enhanced only by Eduard's PE set. The wing fold mechanism is represented well in this set, however I chose not use it. The decals were from Victory Productions' F9F
  14. Hi, I thought it time to post on here after a couple of years reading. I was moved by reading the book 'Devotion' which relates the story of Thomas Hudner, who won the Medal of Honour trying to save Ensign Jesse Brown (the first black US naval aviator), during the battle around the Chosin Reservoir. The aircraft depicted is the aircraft he flew on the day he won the Medal of Honour, whilst flying with VF32 from the USS Leyte on 4 December 1950. The aircraft is a 1/48 F4U-5 from Trumpeter.
  15. Here is my effort of producing an F86A in 1/72 scale. Life started from Academy's F86E kit and underwent some modifications; tail-plane activation fairings were removed, slatted 6-3 wing back dated to early slatted wing, front windscreen with one from Pavla and for good measure, a K-19 gun-sight fitted. I added a little more detil to the cockpit. The mods took a bit of an effort with filling and sanding but we got there. The overall NMF was achieved using Metalcote paints from Humbrol. Decals were a mixture of Matchbox for the serials and 'Miss Louise' and the rest from the Academy kit. The
  16. Something new for my Korean War aircraft collection - 1/72 Hawker Sea Fury FB.11, serial VX 730, number K 109, 805. Squadron Royal Australian Navy, HMAS Sydney, Korea 1951. Built with Trumpeter`s kit, Eduard`s Zoom PE parts for cockpit and Pavla`s resin propeller. Some modifications were made (for ex.: 3mm longer gear struts, bigger wheels, area behind the cockpit aligned to fuselage, opened step on port side, exhaust pipes, pitot tube etc.). Decals are from AIMS decals set "UK & Commonwealth in Korea". Painted with Gunze C.
  17. Valiant Wings Airframe Extra No.2 The Korean War Many modellers these days seem to like building subjects based on a theme, which can often be historical events. This series of books from Valiant Wings will look at specific areas, and events in the history of aerial warfare with this in mind. Each title will cover the history and details details of these event. Each will contain period photographs, and colour artwork from Richard J Caruana. More importantly to the modeller each will contain kit builds in all three major scales (1/72nd, 1/48th and 1/32nd) from modellers; Dani Zamarbide, S
  18. I've always fancied making an all black Korea bird, or a late Vietnam Electric wizzy, wither USN or USMC. (Also used by the US Army too, but details are scarce to say the least. I suspect test aircraft only?) Can I safely assume the Sword release has been abandoned? So that leaves: 72: Matchbox or 48: Encore A choice between an old kit in my preferred scale) or an expensive one. I know there are issues reported with the fit of the matchbox canopy, and lack of cockpit detail is pretty much a given, so a rare trip to the aftermarket will be likely to achieve food results. Have I missed any
  19. This Ace Corporation kit is a repop of the lovely little Revell F-5E with a great set of South Korean decals. The kit has very little flash, engraved panel lines and a fairly distortion free canopy.
  20. This is it! Build twelve since I restarted this modelling gig. I . Can. Stop. Counting! And it only took me 22 months to do 12. But what a choice. You SNEAKY Sword... Lulling me into a false sense of security with your nice little Spitfire kits that went together with little problem. Making me think all your kits are like that. SILLY me. This one was definitely in the check fit, file, check fit, rinse repeat category. I'm sure more experienced modellers would have no problem, but I'm glad I did the shake and bake Airfix Vampire before this. I don't think I'd survive doing
  21. I'm in! Better late than never so here goes. I'm doing the Hobby Boss 1/48 T-34/85 in North Korean markings. This will be my first armour build since I was a teenager, which is some time ago, if my memory serves me correctly. The kit comes with a ton of interior detail, I'm half expecting to find a kitchen sink on the sprues somewhere. Unfortunately I really want to model it with hatches down and so I'm not going to be ustilising all that gorgeous detail. It feels slightly sacrilegious to not take advantage of all the work HB have put into the kit but there it is! I will be making the engine c
  22. Finally managed to finish this one, with a few stumbles toward the end. I tried out a host of new techniques and materials on this thing and am pretty happy with the result. Another thing I'm fairly happy with is I can now get rid of the ginormous box cluttering up the apartment. The only addition was a set of belts, some engine detailing and some nylon thread static dischargers. So without further ado, I give you the pictures.. The build thread can be found here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234940474-trumpeter-132-a-1d/
  23. Okay ladies and gents, the Easter break is over so it's time to get this show on the road. This is my entry for the Korean War Group Build and as the title says it will be the Tamiya 1/48 P-51D Mustang as flown by 77 Squadron RAAF during the initial stages of the war until the squadron re-equipped with Meteors. I am going to model the personal mount of the squadron CO, Wing Commander Lou Spence who was KIA during a raid on storage facilities at Angang-ni, north of Pusan in South Korea, which had been recently captured by Communist forces. Spence was leading four Mustangs in the attack
  24. Douglas A-1D, (AD-4) Skyraider Trumpeter 1/32 History The Douglas A-1 Skyraider (formerly AD) was an American single-seat attack aircraft that saw service between the late 1940s and early 1980s. It became a piston-powered, propeller-driven anachronism in the jet age, and was nicknamed "Spad", after the French World War I fighter. The Skyraider had a remarkably long and successful career, even inspiring its straight-winged, slow-flying, jet-powered successor, the A-10 Thunderbolt II. It was operated by the United States Navy (USN), the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) and the United States
  25. Originally I wanted to built this kit together with the new Corsair from Hobby Boss. The latter has ended up on The Stash. Maybe some time in the future... The kit is pretty much straight forward. It has a non-foldable wing and posable flaps. It also includes some ordnance (rockets, bombs) and some parts to build a F4U-5N (nightfighter). The wing consists of three parts; an underside and two uppersides. The underside is a big piece of plastic to glue. And I am afraid I messed up the left part of the wing. First let it dry. What brand glue you people use???? I use the UHU-bottle with
