  1. I will be joining in with the much maligned Mach 2 Vickers Viscount. I will be converting the kit's -700 airframe to a -800 by way of the Hamilton Hobbies conversion set. It will be marked as one of two aircraft operated in the VIP role by 34 Squadron at RAAF Fairbairn during the 60s, decal from Hawkeye models Australia
  2. Beechcraft King Air 200 45 (Reserve) Squadron, RAF Cranwell, 2021 Mach 2 kit as marketed by Two Six Models I picked this one up from Models For Sale a few months ago, mainly because it included a really nice set of decals for the current RAF training version. The kit was typically Mach 2 – lots of flash, nearly unusable transparencies, wings at odd angles if you assemble it straight from the sprue, brittle plastic, etc. Ironically the cabin windows were moulded quite well and would have been usable, but alas the windows were too small and had to be drilled out

  5. I've had in the collection for some years the Mach 2 Vickers Viscount 700 kit - a manufacturer who produces some rather interesting subjects (ie Mach 2). This is one of their better efforts in my view with nice detail, generally accurate lines (but see below) and the opportunity for some great colour schemes. The usual research has been done before starting - including build reviews etc from other modellers. A number of reviewers/builders have commented that there is something that is 'not quite right' with the finished model and I have formed a view as to what that might be. Fo
  6. "Into the small back room he stole, the searching beam of his flashlight incising the damp, fetid air. Even the half-crazed, cackling beggar who had led him to this place had tried to warn him not to gaze upon the contents of the box. “There’s some ‘as tried, and ‘as been driven to th’bottle and t'madhouse, just fr’one litt’a peek at t’fearsome thangs what’s inside!” he had told him, with bloodshot eyes and whisky breath. He paid the grizzly old man his pen’north, and shooed him roughly into the night. He would not be deterred in his quest, not after travelling from the far Indies to the Ameri
  7. Martin P6M-2 Seamaster Naval Air Station Harvey Point, North Carolina, 1959 1/72 Mach 2 kit Surely one of the coolest looking aeroplanes of all time, the Seamaster was just a step too far into the field of far-too-expensive-aeroplanes. In some ways it captures the spirit of 1950s military aviation in America in which anything was worth a try. I bought this Mach 2 kit at a good price (£40) last year but really never thought I would build it. Opening the box revealed the size of the beast, but also revealed huge amounts of flash and poorly moulded parts with rough sur

  9. It's reported that a company is working on a injected 1/72nd Bristol 175 Britannia kit. Official announcement is expected in about 45 days. Considering this rumour is coming from the French forum Master194 I fear a Mach2 kit. A Bristol Britannia would be logical follow-up to the A.W. Argosy (link) and the Avro York (link). Wait and see.

  11. Sometimes I have these lapses in sanity, but having watched a fair few films on the internet about the Berlin Airlift, and always having an affection for the Avro York, I thought I would attempt Mach2's boxing of their Avro York of said era. Now, this is my first Mach2 kit and after reading a few bits and pieces about these kits on here and other forums, I knew what to expect on opening the box. I hadn't ever had a look at one of their kits before, but it was still a bit of a shock what was inside. let's have a look shall we? Flimsy lid with really nicely rendered (computer ge
  12. Hi guys, Thought I would get some photos up of the Mach2 Argosy. It won't be a full on WIP, just little updates from time to time. Booms just pushed on for photo. and where it's at now, that centre wing section has been a PITA & will need a rescribe, but other than that it's been an OK build. My weakness has always been building 'neat' and finishing seams off perfectly.... but this time round it's looking a lot better... More, soon....................
  13. Hello all, As promised here are final build pictures of my 1:72 scale B-45A Tornado from the Mach2 kit, with a few mods. It is only a little unusual in that it depicts a B-45A from the Air Test Center in cold-weather markings, probably tat Ladd AFB, Alaska, circa 1948-1952. Also unusual is the fact that the arctic markings are not seen on the wingtips. I cannot recall another model of this aircraft depicting the boarding ladders. Built thread is here: Without further ado, the photos: Oops -- windshield washer
  14. Hi guys, I've been really busy recently, work, moving house, trying to get to most shows on weekends etc, it's been non-stop. Loads going on in the background, I have a few kits that are nearing completion (see RFI soon) but decided to keep them off BM due to time reasons but I'm putting this up as it's a really unusual-unseen built kit.., I've also just set up a new SIG with the IPMS called 'Scale Water Bombers', basically, anything that's dropped water or retardant etc over the years from Ford Trimotors to DC-10's... one aircraft that I've always been fond of is the AJ-1 Savage and two were
