  1. Hi all, My latest project idea Is a strong of Fitters. My question is about the conversion of a Modelsvit kit to the long nose version. Are there any conv kits out there? Thanks. Martin
  2. Hello! Today I present to you my newest model of Lockheed F-16C Fighting Falcon in 1/72 scale. The model was created from the Polish MisterCraft set, which is a very weak set. I modified the model and after the modification it has a new pilot's seat, completed gaps in the main landing gear, a new engine nozzle as well as improved geometry and wing mounting. The model received the livery of the 445th Flight Test Squadron, Edwards AFB, California, February 2010.
  3. One ancient model. It cost me more than five years to start, so I decided to finish it. An extremely rudimentary and heavy model. Somehow I did a little fighting and it's not bad for the shelf. The decals were super gluey, only I didn't manage to glue the five-pointed to the spinner, so I painted it red. Here's the picture.
  4. I've always liked the Javelin, possibly my favourite post-war fighter. One of the most interesting versions was the FAW8 with its short nose and offset radome. Only two squadrons flew this version, no.. 41 sqn at Wattisham and 85 sqn at West Raynham, before they were withdrawn in 1964. For this model I used the Mistercraft 'FAW7' with a Freightdog FAW8 resin nose and decals from an old modelling magazine that were
  5. Hi folk's,as some may have noted my Hobbyboss offering went down in flames so while I was buying a replacement I noticed this kit on the shelf for a reasonable £4:99 so I took a punt if worse came to worse she'd do for the grandson to play with.Anyway a nice surprise was waiting in the box,what you get is a finely molded slightly grainy surfaced kit of the short run variety a decent set of decals with four options,a beautifully clear canopy and a set of instructions and colour guide that put some of our major model companies to shame.I have no idea of the kit's origin other than
  6. So here we go, the first of what I hope will be at least a trilogy of Javelins, along with the Heller T3 and Airfix FAW9. This purports to be an FAW7, though XH858 is a fictitious serial number and XH893 is an FAW9. Despite the box art, there are no decals for XH789. I'll probably mix and match the numbers to make a new one, or dip into the spares bag, otherwise I'll have to fork out for aftermarket decals that cost more than the kit! Unfortunately there are no stencils or ejection seat triangles or anything other than the above. But for £8.50 I guess I s
  7. Saw one of the above in a model shop yesterday for £6.99. Now the world is not exactly awash with Lynx moulds in 1/72. I was wondering whose mould it is. Is this a chance to obtain a Hobbyboss kit (for all its flaws) on the cheap?
  8. Here she is, in her full 1950's glory. The bright decals make it better I think. Not as simple to make as I was expecting, as the Mistercraft kit needs a bit of cutting and sanding to make an F.6, but in the end I thought I'd use one of the Xtradecal options to brighten her up.
  9. Good morning, Here is my build of the 1/72 Mastercraft Aero L-29 Delfin finished with the beautiful Armycast decals, in Uganda Air Force colours. The kit took me much longer than anticipated due to having to reshape the parts and much use of filler, however I am quite happy with the outcome. I hope you all like my build.
  10. Hot on the heals of the Canberra, another beauty from the 50s, the elegant Hawker Hunter. This is my first 'Mistercraft' kit, and looks on first glance to be quite simple; very few parts and to my less than professional eyes, a reasonable shape. Not bad for about £6 on eBay anyway! The kit decals, however, were awful! Very blotchy looking 92 sqn checks, and some 1 sqn nose flashes that seem a bit too small in my opinion. As I'll be making my Sabre in 92 sqn colours, I wanted to do something different for the Hunter, so I splashed out on the Xtradecals set. A good choic
  11. Hawker Tempest Mk.V 1:72 MisterCraft The Tempest was designed by Hawkers to address some of the performance issues with the Typhoon. The wingspan was originally greater than the Typhoon but this was clipped back to be slightly shorter. The wing was changed with the cannon being moved further back. Ammunition capacity was expanded to 200 rounds per gun. The landing gear was given a wider track to improve landing characteristics. The new wing and four bladed propeller was to cure the high frequency vibrations problems suffered by the Typhoon. With a top speed of 432mph it was faster at low
  12. MiG-29M '23rd AFB' 1:72 Mistercraft The Mikoyan MiG-29, known in the West by its NATO reporting name 'Fulcrum' is an air superiority fighter designed and built in the Soviet Union in the 1980s. As with other comparable aircraft of that period, such as the Su-27, F-16, F-15 and Panavia Tornado, it was produced in significant numbers and is still in fairly widespread service with air arms around the world. The MiG-29 was developed as a lighter, cheaper aircraft compared to the Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker, an aircraft with which it is broadly comparable in terms of layout
  13. Me again folks - this is now build 3 of my most recently posted builds. I've got the Airfix Wildcat to add finishing touches to and a 1/48 Revell Stuka to complete - I'll post both as soon as they're ready. Anyway back to this build. This is the MisterCraft PZL 7a Polish fighter. Now I hadn't really been aware of this manufacturer until I saw this kit in the Monk Bar Model Shop in York (an absolutely cracking little model shop - a must visit for any members of the forum planning a visit to York). It cost the grand sum of £2.99 so my expectations weren't that high but I was very
  14. MisterCraft is to release a 1/48th (?) Mil Mi-4A "Hound" kit - ref. F04 Sources: http://www.modellbau-universe.de/produkt;mil-mi-4-hound-mistercraft;mc~f04;10;1;1;1.htm https://www.modelbouwkrikke.nl/plastic-bouwdozen/contents/nl/p44277_mistercraft-f-04-mil-mi-4-hound.html http://www.hobbycenter.pt/shop/index.php?id_product=804&controller=product&id_lang=1 Price tag suggests a 1/72nd kit and the box art reminds the old MisterCraft/Směr/KP 1/72nd kit. But ref. number is new and the kit is clearly announced as 1/48th scale.
  15. Su-7BKL "Fitter-A" 1:48 MisterCraft The Su-7 was a swept wing supersonic aircraft developed by the Sukhoi design bureau in the 1950's. Originally designed as a fighter it was not a great success, but would later find its role in bombing and ground attack. The Su-7BKL added a rough field capability to the BM which was itself an upgrade for the B model featuring an upgraded engine. In addition wet hard points under the wings were added, and the airframe made nuclear capable. The BKL also featured provision for JATO rockets. 267 were built and many were supplied to Soviet satellite states.
