  1. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my latest, the new Airfix B-25 C/D built in RAF colors with the addition Model Alliance Decals “2nd Tactical Air Force 1944-1945” (MA72204). I used Eduard pre-cut masks (CX507) and painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics (H52 Olive Drab/H53 Grey). D-Day stripes are airbrushed. I added a small 'A' letter (individual aircraft code) to the tail fin, according to original photos. Period photographs also show different size of roundels on the upper wing, not mentioned on the Model Alliance sheet. I replaced the left RAF roundel for a slig
  2. Hi, I have decided not to talk to my Saudi Tornado for the time being. Then, one weekend, I went to a friend's and started another Tornado, this time an Italian IDS one. So after that weekend work, there it was; I didn't weigh the nose, which proved wise, as the model is nose heavy. I chose Gunze H404 to paint it, but it seems a bit not yellow enough for me... Tailplanes are painted, and the decals are started. A few wheels later... Let's start with the underwing stores: fuel tanks and Hasegawa Sidewinders (those in the Revell kit are awful).
  3. After having been active on this forum a couple of years, asking and answering questions, I thought it was about time I showed some of my work. Also my question in the Cold War forum about the Dominie generated some interest in what I have been doing. I had been tinkering on and off with this kit for a couple of years, not really knowing which finish I should choose. However some time ago I managed to get hold of the Model Alliance sheet 72129 with decals for the Dominie, and found the aircraft I want to build; XS728/E/470, 6 FTS, RAF Finningley in the late 70's. I have found two b/w photos of
  4. With the final retirement of the Cosford Jags a couple of weeks ago it seemed timely to finish off my build of Jaguar XX117 in her retirement colours. This picture of her got me started: I had been meaning to build a Jag for a while & a good priced GR3a came up on ebay, and Model Alliance did the tail decals. So here she is: The step ladder is a new scratch build addition - not a Jag ladder, but suitable for the scene. Nice Airfix kit to build & came together quite quickly. Hope you like it.
  5. Hi all, In the process of building up a stash of FAA jets in 1:72 and noticed that Model Alliance have the ML48121 decal set for many of these types, for the Ark Royal air wing. It looks like an interesting project, but as it all hangs on these decals being correct, I just wanted to check that there were no errors with the set that anyone was aware of? Thanks for any advice, Tony
  6. Anyone remember this one from the Lightning GB? http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234968483-early-airfix-48th-lightnings/ Poor thing has been lingering at one corner of the bench while other projects were completed but a determination to finish off various stalled models this year seen her get some attention lately. Been working on the seat that comes with the Cutting Edge cockpit set. Some base coats of Humbrol enamels got it to here; Then plenty dry brushing and detail painting, along with the addition of fuse wire handles got this; Once this is installed it'll be
  7. Hello all This is my first completion in almost 6 months after a barren summer dominated by looking after the kids followed by a short-term loss of building mojo. Finally got my backside in gear to finish this Lightning as a Christmas present for my father in law, who used to paint Lightnings with 5 Squadron based at RAF Binbrook in the late 60s and early 70s. I wanted to do the model in a 5 squadron scheme like he would have worked on, so had to depart from my usual out of the box method. Did a bit of research online, and chose this pic to base mine on: Dipped into the aftermarket for th
  8. as I wrote myself into trouble accepting 2 different group-builds at more or less the same time here the other one I am working on in parallel.....; http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234982350-s-75-dwina-sa-2-guideline-sam-egypt-148/ but as I liked the idea of a tribute Tornado build, breaking the gb calendar planing just as the reason for the gb came unplanned,,,, I will try to to my best keeping the deadlines... apart from that, the cause of the gb also help me in tackling this rather not up to date kit.... I will try to put in quite some Aftermarket designed for othe
  9. Oh wise group build leader, I humbly prostrate my unworthy self and ask that I be allowed to mangle this old chestnut: Apart from the funky Prisoner type circles from the Model Alliance Wings of Stars sheet, I may also add some resin exhausts, a Squadron vac canopy and the Eduard etch. Seeing as I have never actually used any resin, vac or etch before should not present a problem, after all what could possibly go wrong? Anil The Optimist
  10. Hi All! Tamiya's 1:48 Beaufighter Mk.X: Essentially an out of the box build but with Model Alliance decals. Made to represent NE429, a 489 (New Zealand) Squadron aircraft operating out of RAF Dallachy in 1944. As usual for a Tamiya kit, it was a dream to build with no filling required at all and minimal sanding. Paints were a mix of Xtracolor, Testors and Alcad II for the metally bits. The YAGI antenna was fabricated using aerial spares, provided by the kit, cut to shape and aligned with a guitar string. I hope you'z like it! I think it's my best build yet. Woof woof. ~M~
  11. I'm intending to backdate an Xtrakit 1/72 Canberra PR.9 to a 39 Squadron example from the early 1980s in Dark Sea Grey/Dark Green/Light Aircraft Grey camouflage. It'll probably be XH175 using markings from the Model Alliance sheet and maintenance markings from Modeldecal sheet 85. So far, armed with the Aeroguide 34 and a helpful article in the Sep 2006 Air International I think I need to remove all signs of: - the port for the Zeiss RMK-A camera aft of the bomb bay - the IRLS doors on the bomb-bay doors - the underwing hardpoints for the BOZ and TADS pods - the flare dispenser squares
  12. Right after much deliberation over the stash i have chosen this subject to be my primary entry to the gb. The scheme celebrates 20 years of hornets in the RAAF, I've not seen this scheme entered in the gb yet so thats why i chose it. I'll also be using the awesome Daco book uncovering the fa18 hornet as a reference along with various images sourced from the web of this aircraft.
  13. I have started on my 1/48 Airfix Canberra B2 and am converting it to a PR7, I have fitted the Alley Cat conversion which lengthens the fuselage etc... There appears to be quite a few options for camera ports both fore and aft of the bomb bay. Does anyone know the typical layout of the camera bays of a mid 60's Canberra? I have googled numerous photographs but there arent many showing a clear view of the underside. Did the camera ports have retractable covers? as some of the photos show camera ports in slightly different positions. Finally if anyone knows where I can lay my hands on Model A
