  1. Here is the second of a trio of two-seater Starfighters I have been working on the past month-and-a-half. It's F-104F Starfighter BB+362 (s/n 59-4996, c/n 5049) of WaSLw 10 (Waffenschule der Luftwaffe), Luftwaffe, at Jever AB, German Federal Republic, in the late 1960s from Mark I's reboxing of the Revell kit. Only 30 of this variant were built, all exclusively for Germany. The F-104F was basically an F-104D with the F-104G's uprated engine. Like the F-104D, it had no radar and no weapons capability and was exclusively for pilot training. Apart
  2. Here is the first of three two-seater Starfighters I have been working on the past month-and-a-half. It's a CF-104D from Mark I's reboxing of the Revell kit. It represents RT-657 (104657, ex-CAF 5327) of Esk 726, Royal Danish AF, at Alborg AB, Denmark, in 1983-85. Apart from sanding down the main undercarriage door bulges as indicated in the instructions, I made some more modifications. I found photos of this machine and it was one of the later Canadian-built Starfighters equipped with RWR blisters under the nose and on both sides of the tail. I also added some aerials, one behin
  3. Here are a pair of desert scheme Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-17PF "Fresco Ds" I built back in 2014. Both are from the Attack 1:144 kit moulds, the Syrian one from the original boxing whereas the Egyptian one was from the Mark I re-boxing. The Mark I kit came with a resin cockpit so I used it as a guide to scratchbuild one for the Attack kit using a Matador Models white metal MiG-21PF seat. Both kits had the radio mast and wing probes added from stretched sprue. The missing sway braces for the drop tanks were also added from thin plastic sheet. They were fully painted and varnished by brush.
  4. Hello everyone! Here is one of my two latest kits finished during this week, both being Mark I Model's 1:144 Dornier Do 17Z-2. This one represents 5K+EA, Stab./KG3, Luftwaffe, based at Le Culot airfield, Belgium, during the Battle of Britain, summer 1940. This wasn't an easy build due to poor fit of parts, especially the transparencies. Both together have been 2 months in the making! I made the following modifications/additions: - The gun barrels were too thick so I cut them off and made thinner ones from stretched sprue. - The exhausts were way too long. Initiall
  5. Hello everyone! Here is one of my two latest kits, finished last weekend. It's Mark I Models brand new 1:144 Messerschmitt Bf 109K-4 which I started building the day I received it about 4 weeks ago. It represents White 1, W. Nr. 330204, of 9./JG77, Luftwaffe, at Neuruppin airfield, Germany, in November 1944. It was built mostly OOB adding belts from Tamiya tape and the armoured headrest (a bit of a fiasco that) in the cockpit as well as the missing tail mast for the radio wires and the FuG 25a IFF aerial under the fuselage. I opened up the supercharger intake which wa
  6. Hello everyone! Here is the second of my two latest kits, finished last weekend. It's Mark I Models brand new 1:144 Messerschmitt Bf 109K-4 which I started building the day I received it about 4 weeks ago and built simultaneously with the other one I posted yesterday. It represents 3-14, W. Nr. 333878, of 3a Squadriglia, I Gruppo Caccia, Aeronautica Nationale Repubblicana, at Lonate Pozzolo airfield, Italy, in March 1945. The same notes concerning the build of the other one apply here. The kit was fully painted and varnished by brush and the decals went on very well although
  7. Hello everyone! Here is my latest kit and the first of this year. It's Mark I Model's 1:144 Dassault (SABCA) Mirage 5BA representing BA 21 (No.021), 2nd Sqn 'La Comète', 2nd Tactical Wing, Belgian Air Force, based at Florennes AB, Belgium in late 1985. This machine was sent to a museum in Deblin, Poland, following retirement. Following my previous experience with this kit last year (Swiss AF Mirage IIIRS) where it was pointed out the kit had a nose-down sit rather than the opposite, I made a correction to the nose wheel leg part. It is clearly
  8. Having made a complete hash of my first Blitzbuild, I thought that I would dig this little Mossie out of the stash and have another crack at one. I will be going for the two 12 hour sessions option and I hope to complete it this time around. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr
  9. Zeppelin LZ127 1:720 Mark I Models The LX127 Graf Zeppelin was a German passenger airship designed, built and operated in the interwar period. At the time of its completion, it was the longest airship in the world at 236 metres and was surpassed only by the USS Akron in 1931. The Graf Zeppelin enjoyed a relatively successful commercial career, flying over 1 million miles prior to its retirement in 1937. Most of its commercial flights took place between Germany and South America, as the development of fixed wing passenger aircraft made it too slow and s
  10. Here is my Mark I Models 1:144 scale Messerschmitt Bf 109G-1/R6 which I built back in 2016. It represents a machine flown by Horst Carnagico of Stab II./JG5, Luftwaffe, from Alakurrti airfield, Northern Russia, in April 1943. I have some reservations as to if it was indeed a G-1 but I'm going with what the kit says. This was the Eduard kit re-packaged by Mark I Models adding a resin cockpit and several decal options. It was built mostly OOB though I replaced the cannon barrels with thinner ones from metal rod. The kit was fully painted and varnished by brush. Thank
  11. Hello! Here is the other of two kits I completed this past weekend. It's Mark I Models' 1:144 scale Sukhoi Su-7BM "Fitter A" built as 5024, 28th Fighter Bomber Regiment (28. sbolp), Czechoslovak Air Force, at Caslav Air Base, in 1964. This kit was Attack's Su-7B repackaged by Mark I with resin parts added to make a nuclear-armed Su-7BM. Apart from the nuke itself, the resin parts included the fuselage spine ducts and a nose probe. The kit was built mostly OOB with only the missing wingtip probes and some main undercarriage arms added from stretched sprue as on the Su-7B. As with
  12. DH Vampire FB.9 1:144 Mark I Models The De Havilland DH.100 Vampire was built to fulfil a wartime requirement for a small, lightweight jet fighter for the Royal Air Force. Although the prototype aircraft flew almost two years before the end of the War, the production aircraft arrived too late to see service in the conflict. Despite this, well over 3,000 examples were produced and the aircraft enjoyed a relatively long service life by the standards of the day. Powered by a single De Havilland Goblin turbojet, the diminutive Vampire was capable of 548 mph
  13. Spitfire F/FR Mk.XIV Bubbletop 1:144 Mark I Models When the prototype Spitfire took to the air for the first time on 5 March 1936, few involved could have foreseen where the development of the type would lead. By the end of the Second World War, the type had earned itself a place in the history books as well as the nation's psyche. Powered by the two-stage supercharged Griffon 65, the performance of the Mk.XIV was a quantum leap over its forebears, enabling the Spitfire to meet its German foe on equal terms. The FR Mk.XIV was a photo reconnaissance vers
  14. DH Mosquito PR.IV/B.IV 'Special Liveries' 1:144 Mark I Models The de Havilland Mosquito was conceived as a high-powered, high-speed bomber. Unlike other aircraft of the day, it was depended on its speed, rather than defensive gun turrets, for survival. It was also noteworthy for being constructed of wood composite, a technique pioneered by de Havilland in the sleek de Havilland Albatross airliner. This helped to save weight, but also reduced reliance on the scarce alloys used in the construction of other aircraft. Overcoming the skepticism of the Air Min
  15. HMA R33/R34 Transatlantic Flyer 1:720 Mark I Models In 1916, While the R33 class of airships was still on the drawing board, the German airship L33 was downed by anti-aircraft fire over Essex. Despite the crew's attempts to destroy the stricken craft, it was captured largely intact and thus yielded the secrets of German airship construction to the British authorities. With the design now based heavily on the German airship, the R33 was constructed b Armstrong-Whitworth in North Yorkshire, while the sister ship R34 was built by William Beardmore and Co. i
  16. Hello everyone! Here is one of two Westland Wessex kits I built back in 2015. It is Wessex HC.2 XR505/081, Escuadrón Helicópteros, Aviación Naval Uruguaya, based at Base Aeronaval Capitán Curbelo, Laguna del Sauce, Uruguay, as seen on the USS Oak Hill (LSD-51) during Exercise Southern Partnership Station, Uruguay, in July 2009. This one one of five ex-RAF machines delivered to the Uruguayan Naval Aviation. It is the Mark I Models 1:144 kit with etched parts from Brengun. The kit needs some care and work as the fit of parts isn't great. The Brengun parts really improve the
  17. Hello everyone This is the first build I'm posting here and it's my latest kit finished just last weekend. It's a conversion of the Mark I Models 1:144 He 219A-5 into a A-6 "Mosquito-Jäger". This was a projected but unbuilt variant. This was an A-2/R2 with armour removed, no radar aerials and without flame dampeners. My sample of the kit came with a lot of flash which meant plenty of cleaning up though this isn't the norm (I have others in my stash). Basic improvements involved the following: - Moving the rear cockpit wall 4-5mm forward. I added a gunsight at the front.
  18. LET L-13/TZ-13 Blanik "Military Service" 1:144 MARK I Models (MKM14495) The L-13 Blanik is a two seat training glider made by the Czech company Let Kunovice. It is probably the most widely produced and used glider in the world, being used by many civilian schools, and many military air arms. The L-13 was the first Czech glider to utilise laminar flow wing profiles. The L-13 has a reputation for durability and ease of operation. Over 3000 have been built since 1956 and exported all over the world. The ruggedness of the design combined with a low landing
