  1. MikroMir is to release a 1/72nd Martin XB-51 kit - ref. 72-025 Source: https://www.facebook.com/mikro.mir.dnepr/posts/4094017577342614 V.P.
  2. Well, that's something off the beaten path - MikroMir is to release a kit of an Ukrainian maritime drone: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/mikromir-35-028-ukraines-maritime-drone-usv--1481701 I could not find a Rumourmonger thread for this, both with the search function and Google, so apologies if this is a duplicate thread. Cheers, Andre

  4. After someone piqued my interest in miniature submarines, I picked up one of these in my AFV scale of choice, 1:35, as it's a convenient scale for ships/boats/subs of this size, and also matches the scale of my MTB 77 and S-100 from Italeri, but it accidentally started me on a bit of mental splurge, so I now have around 8 mini-subs, and one not-so-mini-sub I've been working on this one on and off for about a month or so now, with the first job getting the kit knocked into shape, making a few adjustments to the conning tower, mainly because I wanted to and there's a few pictures of one with the same shape in a museum, but mostly because I like mucking about with plastic. it took some kicking into shape, then the next goal was to paint it without rendering it a toy-like black tube, which I can imagine is always a clear and present danger with subs. Another first for me was adding a base to a model, and as I don't like brass, I had to make my own supports, and once I'd fitted the sub to it, it really really wanted me to get a plaque. So I got a plaque. here it all is: I kind of ran out of new angles to take pictures of it at this point, and as it's almost too wee already, there's not much you can do about close-ups, as it's all close-up There's a short WIP here if you're interested in seeing how I managed to stuff up anything in particular, or the original shape of the tower's nose I've still got the Turtle (also from Mikromir) on the go, so I guess I'll have to crack on with that when I've got the occasional moment free to do some modelling. I enjoyed it all, and I'm going to be doing more in future, so you'll be sort-of stuck with my in Maritime, but I'll try to keep quiet. There goes the neighbourhood, eh?

  7. Afternoon all, After a 2 year hiatus and working on the 1:1 scale Human build now entering its 23rd month of moulding, I have decided to get back to the workbench after the boy is soundly off to sleep of an evening. So onto the subject in hand. Mikro Mir's 1/144 scale Vicker Valiant, though this is missing a few bits....such as the clear parts, photo etch and the decal sheet. No problem as I have contacted Mikro Mir for assistance and in the hope that they have not been effected (too much) by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. This build is set to be Valiant XD818 and Operation Grapple......the testing and first drop of Great Britains H-Bomb that was detonated at Christmas Island on 15th May 1957. This is the Valiant that is currently sat in the Cold War hanger at RAF Cosford. Hand for me as it only 40 minutes or so down the road. The problem is, I cannot find the decals for XD818 in 1/144 scale that dont cost a small fortune and more than I paid for the kit in the first place. I also noticed that the fuselage registration number is in light blue, these decals appear to be black. eBay Decals - XD818 - HOW MUCH!?!? Paint scheme will be in Anti-Flash White and posed in flight Pathe News for the testing Christmas Island - 1957

  20. 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:

  23. 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.
