  11. My local modeling group (Mad City Modelers, in Madison Wisconsin) is having a group build this month, the theme is "Inclement Weather". As a former submariner, I've always wanted to do a diorama of a sub surfaced in the Arctic, and now I have a good excuse! Here are a couple of photos for reference: T The sub in the above pics is USS Trepang (SSN-674), a Sturgeon-class attack submarine, and were taken during her trip to the North Pole in ICEX-85. I started with MikroMir's 1/350 kit of USS Sturgeon (SSN-637): I've never tried anything like this before, so my results are mixed and I'd do some things differently if I were to do it over again. Overall, though, I'm satisfied. You be the judge: This was a quick-and-dirty project, and I didn't post a WIP. So, I'll briefly show some build highlights here: I began by cutting a recess in a block of foam for the upper hull half: I painted the hull with Mr Surfacer rattlecan black, and fixed it in place using AK Interactive Resin Water. I tinted the resin blue with a few drops of enamel paint. In retrospect, I should have gone with white instead: For the ice, I cast a thin (about 2-mm) sheet of white-tinted AK Interactive Resin Ice: Only the sub's sail (a.k.a. fin, a.k.a. conning tower) will show above the ice. I assembled and painted the sail separately, to be added after the ice is in place. I used just nine parts from the kit in total, seven of those were for the sail. Note that I added pins to firmly secure the fairwater diving planes. I also added pins for the periscope and radio masts (not shown): I carefully lowered the resin ice over the mounted hull. I found the resin to be a strange mix of being brittle, yet flexible. I used a small hammer to carefully break the ice over the hull. Loose pieces were fixed in place using clear silicone adhesive and CA. I also had to cut openings for the sail and rudder. Once the ice was in place, I added a layer of generic, model railroad snow which I fixed in place with hairspray. Finally, I added the sail assembly: And, there you have it. Not bad for a week's effort! And, if you've gotten this far, here is a nice video for your entertainment! Thanks for viewing! - Bill ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ p.s. - My other submarine builds:

  16. Hi, This is my 1/144 Blackburn Beverley. They were slow, but they went everywhere. I know a couple of guys who have jumped from Argosies, but no one who has jumped from "the Bev". On the Beverley, it was possible to jump "from the second floor" through a hole in the tailboom. That must have been "interesting", but I gather it wasn't done often. Cheers, Stefan.

  25. SNCASO SO 9050 "Trident II" 1/72 MikroMir via A-market In the 1950s after Jet Technology came in the original engines were still a developing technology and various ways were looked at to improve interceptors. Different countries looked at mixed rocket/jet powered aircraft with the rocket giving the main boost to get the aircraft to altitude quickly. In France this drive also came at the same time as a national move to re-build French military power after WWII. Here the French Air Force issued a request for a supersonic capable point defense fighter. SNCASO came up with a design which combined a single fuselage rocket engine which was to be supplemented with wingtip turbojets. Due to the high speeds envisioned a convectional ejection seat was replaced by a jettisonable nose section. The Trident II was an improvement over the original aircraft with a more powerful rocket, smaller wings, and a bigger cockpit. The speed brakes were relocated from the wings and the landing gear made longer to accommodate a single large missile under the fuselage. The rocket used a mixture of Furaline and nitric acid which were highly volatile. The first prototype was lost in a mid air explosion more than likely caused by the mixing of the fuels; and the second was lost when the turbojets were starved of fuel. The Kit This is a new tool from MikroMir with the sprues and moulding hedging more to the shorter run style. Moulding quality is good with a small amount of flash being present on some parts, panel lines being engraved. A small fret of PE parts is also included in the kit. Construction starts with the cockpit (no surprise there). The floor attaches to the rear bulkhead then the seat is made up and added in. The control column is added as are PE rudder pedals. Side parts are added to the floor with PE instrument consoles going on top. Upper side parts go in and then the instrument panel with PE overlay goes on. This is then put to one side. Next up the nose wheel assembly is completed and added into the nose cone. Next up the wingtip Turbojets can be built up, these have full depth intakes and exhausts. Now some of the sub-assemblies are built up we can move onto main model. The wing tip engines are attached to the short wings. For the main fuselage the central main gear bay is built up and added in, this is followed by the cockpit. Once these are in the main fuselage can be closed up and at the rear the rocket exhaust added. The nose can then be added to the fuselage. All the wheels are fitted along with the gear bay doors. The wings, tailplanes and vertical tail are now added to the fuselage. The appropriate missile for your choice of decal option can then by built up and added to the centreline. Finishing touches are the addition of some PE blade aerials and the canopy. Decals There is no printer name on the decals, though they look good and are in register. There are markings for two of the prototype aircraft. Conclusion Its good to see a new tool of this unusual aircraft in 1/72. This is not a complicated kit but will look the part once built up. Highly Recommended. Review sample courtesy of
