  1. Hi all, I hope this is the right place to ask this, couldn't find a more appropriate one - it's a really obscure subject. So I'm planning to display several aircraft types in NATO service together. Having done a little research it seems aircraft stationed at southern German bases would often frequent bases on the other side of the Alps in Northern Italy, Aviano being a popular destination it seems. My question is: Would those aircraft have taken the long way over France or would they have had permission to overfly neutral Austria (assuming Switzerland was out of the qu
  2. Just out of curiosity who makes the best Leopard 1 ? More specifically a 1A5 to be built in Canadian markings/Camouflage of the 1990’s ? Any info and assistance will be gratefully accepted. Thank you in advance ? Dennis
  3. Ahoy all, I have a question. I've just purchased the RealColors NATO set and I'm wondering how suitable they are for U.S. vehicles. As we know, Tamiya does the three colours as well, which I normally use. The reason I ask is because in the past I'd heard there was a slight difference between the U.S. version of the tri-colour scheme, and say the German one. Looking at the paint codes on the NATO set, they aren't FS numbers but RAL, and they look a bit duller/darker than the Tamiya equivalent. A Wikipedia search IDs the green as RAL 6031-F9 'Bronze Green', the brown as
  4. Hello all, My first entry for this GB will be a 1/48 GWH example in the markings of the Hungarian Air Force in the NATO scheme seen throughout the first decade of the 21st century: http://data.primeportal.net/hangar/luc_colin/mig-29/MiG-29 HuAF 002.JPG Kit: I'm using the 'early' boxing but has all the parts needed to make the jet i'm after. Extras: Quickboost K-36 ejection seat, FOD covers and HAD models decals. Not sure if i'll use the exhaust covers. I'm also considering getting a set of B-8
  5. Hello, Here is my BAe Hawk T.1 in RAF No. 63(R) Squadron as part of the 2 Tactical Weapons Unit (2 TWU), at Brawdy during late 1979. KIT The model is based on Revell Hawk T.1A in 1/32nd scale. This kit is good in size and shapes. Details are generally good but sometimes are a bit poor especially panel lines. The downside of this kit is the lack of details for the big canopy and canopy. The ventral ADEN gun pod too “skinny” in height and width both. The decals box offers the choice of only relatively "recent" RAF T.1A version. CONSTRU
  6. CENTURION Mk.5/2 Modified now into a Mk.6 Will include the originally planned AF35162 Hush Puppy Track and will include the AC35009 Centurion Mantlet (Type 'B') as neither come in the kit. I'm on a bit of a B.A.O.R kick at the moment so this is right in my ball-park
  7. M1078 from Trumpeter, the whole is model out-of-box) Painted with tamiya and lifecolor, weathered with AMMO and AK)
  8. Here's a very long shot. It was either 84 or 85 I was walking home from school and this F-104 flew over at a great rate of knots very low going over Salisbury Plain. I vividly remember that noise of the J79, it had 4 fuel tanks fitted but could not make out any markings as it was a brief glance and it had gone. Now this was a rare sighting so I'm assuming it was part of a nato exercise in the uk, would anybody have an idea of the 104 that I may have seen. Steve
  9. Built this for the 80s GB that's been going on for a while now. The kit was relatively easy to put together except for the applique armour panels on the turret as they had no guides to assist in placement. It was painted with Gunze acrylics and weathered with oils, enamels and pigments. Hope you enjoy the photos. Mark
  10. Modern French Armed Forces Colours – Smart Set AMMO of Mig Jiménez There has been an increase in new toolings of French armour subjects of late, which AMMO have picked up on, releasing this new Smart Set to supply all the major colours you will need for their vehicles. The shades have been formulated following extensive research on the proper colours, and allowing for a slight lightening due to the scale effect of aerial perspective washing out colours the further away from the object the viewer is. The set is supplied in a deep clamshell box, with four 17ml dropper-top bottles with
  11. Having had a look around, I couldn't find evidence of a recent Tiger Sqn GB (correct me if I'm wrong). I think it's time to have another, and I propose that we include not only NATO but any squadron anywhere, anytime that's had a tiger as its emblem. Keeping in mind that a number of ex-WarPac airforces are now proud NATO members, I think it could be interesting. Note that there will be no requirement to do a full-on Tiger Meet themed aircraft - subtle fin-top stripes or a badge on the nose, as per in-service airframes would be acceptable. What say you all?
  12. I was wondering if anyone could point me towards a good quality, but reasonably priced, 1/35 1970s NATO (preferably American or German) AFV kit with a full interior? I don't normally model post-WWII subjects and I usually only work in Braille Scale so I'm a bit out of my depth here. Basically I'm looking for something akin to the incredible Hobbyboss 1/48 T-34 kits, but in 1/35: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/55081-148-hobby-boss-t-3485/
  13. Hi, here is a “walkaround” on my F-84 G Thunderjet from Tamiya, it is a good kit, like almost all Tamiya kits it is free from trouble. My intention was a korean war fighter bomber, the kit decals looked great on the sheet, leave them there ! It is not new, that they are way too thick, i had to learn this on my own. Rescue came from the also very good Revell/Monogram kit, i used the decals for a “G” from the Royal Netherlands Airforce, the aircraft was on inventory by the 311. Sqn. Volkel airbase in july 1953 ( Revell did this research). After all, these markings are a good idea, because most

  16. Just been trying to fill in time on shift and came up with an interesting idea for another group build…….though resin one has to be first. During the Cold War and especially at its peak East and West Germany would be the great meeting ground for NATO and Warsaw Pact, with the most likely spot being the “Fulda Gap”! The Fulda Gap was the hypothetical ideal strike point for Soviet forces to strike deep into West Germany and towards the Rhine. This area was smooth and flat which was ideal for swift mechanize warfare and would provide a chance to split the NATO forces in half. With the 72/73 ti
  17. F-16 NATO Falcons Eduard 1:48 In 1973, one of the most versatile aircraft that's ever flown took to the air for the first time, the YF-16. Experience in Vietnam led to the need in the US for a lightweight fighter (LWF) with high agility and performance, however this need was challenged due to the parallel drive to equip with F-15's. The challenge was put to bed by an agreement to provide the US Air Force with a mix of High / low cost air superiority fighters, each having their own benefits. The competition came down to two competing aircraft, the YF-16 and the YF-17 whic
