  2. Hi Everyone, I`m afraid I`ve nothing new to show, so hope you don`t mind seeing one from a year or two ago Monogram boxing of their 1/48 F-8 Crusader In the kit markings of VMF-235, `The Death Angels`, Da Nang, South Vietnam, around 1965 I modified the kit seat to more resemble the real thing, widened and lowered the main gear, raised the nose gear slightly and........ added some 2000lbers off a Tamiya Skyraider, as per several pic`s in books I`ve seen and suggested by someone on another forum Hope you enjoy looking at, Cheers Russ
  3. Hi all, I don`t build many choppers, I`d like to but they take up too much room, but when this became available cheap I couldn`t resist it. was actually the German and French boxing, so had to raid the decal stash for the markings added one or two missing details in the cockpit but mostly OOB left the rotor blades detachable for storage Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking Cheers Russ
  4. Hi Everyone, I`m stuck between builds again ( going to have to get some `shake and bake` kits in the stash ) so I thought I`d show you my 1/48 Hasegawa Scooter I built a little while back Great little kit, pretty much fell together, only the decals gave any grief..... like most Hasegawa decals and refusing to settle down onto anything but a gentle curve So had to touch up quite a few cracks and tears around the rudder and vortex generators on the wings The bomb had to come from a weapons set as no armament included in the kit Hope you enjo
  5. Morning Everyone, Just finished my shifts so I thought I`d show some pic`s of my 1/48 Gallery Models H-34, before I hit the sack. Built as Mr Gallery Models intended with just a very few additions, which include some hydraulic hoses for the winch and the antenna on the fuselage underside Also improved it a bit by cutting away the areas beneath the Photo-Etch mesh on the nose although I did leave the smaller areas around the tail as per the instructions as they weren`t a great match I mixed the paint to represent the Marines Field Gree
  6. Hi all, just finished my Academy 1/48 scale CH-46A Sea Knight or Phrog Done as aircraft of HMM-262, US Marines, the `Flying Tigers, Vietnam 99% Out of the box, only additions being seat belts, a cable run along each cabin side (that you can hardly see) and some bits of wire to simulate pipes on the rotor hubs. there`s a lot of decals on it, which took me 3 evenings to complete oh, and I used some kitchen roll to simulate sound proofing on the cabin roof to cover where Academy left a gap at the rear and you can see the fuelage join
  7. Hi everyone, just finished the last of my Roden 1/48 Mohawks Done as an aircraft of 131st AVN Company, Vietnam, 1969 Built OOB apart from a few bits of wire and card and a bucket of lead shot to keep the nose down still didn`t quite manage to avoid decal silvering, but best result yet... putting them straight down onto microsol and hitting with hair dryer. Thought I`d also show the rest of the collection so far; all Roden 1/48, first the OV-1A adding a bit of colour with the `Hi Vis` markings next is my previous
  8. Hi Everyone, Hope you don`t mind me showing you some pic`s of my Roden 1/48 scale AU-23A Peacemaker from my Special Ops corner that was photographed in sunnier times Done as an COIN evaluation aircraft of 4400th Special Operations Squadro, USAF, circa 1972 Built OOB with just antenna and seat belts added Building the minigun was very fiddley but the rest was a fairly easy build as Roden builds go Hope you enjoy looking at. Happy modelling....
  9. Hi Everyone, just thought I`d show you my Monogram 1/48 scale Invader which I modified to represent an Air Commandos B-28B of Operation Farmgate . based at Bien Hoa Air Base, South Vietnam in the early 1960`s The kit started life as a clear nosed B-28C, which I converted with a `Cutting Edge` 6 gun nose. scratch built weapons pylons, reworked antenna and some suitable stores from the spares box and the bogus South Vietnamese markings came from a Skyraider sheet Hope you enjoy looking at.
  10. Hi Everyone, Here`s some pic`s of my very latest completion, my third Roden Mohawk Done as an aircraft of the 23rd Special Warfare Aviation Detacment, Vietnam, 1964 Built 99% OOB with just some seatbelts and antenna added As usual had a battle with the dreaded Roden decals, but had my best result with them so far Now contemplating options for my fourth, Hopefully I`ll have got the hang of them by then ! Been hooked on these since reading "Whispering Death" by Robert Curry Hope you enjoy looking at
  11. Hi all, Thought I`d take the chance to show you my build of Czech Models 1/48 Skyknight, which I had to build as I never thought I`d see one injection moulded in `48th. Done as a US Marines Ef-10b ECM aircraft Based at Da Nang, South Vietnam around 1965 built virtually out of the box, only additions being Home made windscreen wiper, seat belts, and brake pipes if I remember correctly Hope you enjoy looking at, Russ
  12. Hello again everyone, I`m on a roll,with two completions this week, this being my second. Hobbyboss, 1/48th scale An-2 Colt, done as a generic North Vietnamese Transport aircraft in order for me to finish it as I had got other plans for it Originally I bought it to make a model of one of the An-2`s that attacked the CIA radio site (lima site 85) in Laos but but got stalled as I couldn`t find enough information on any modifications done especially the mortar installation or wing protection for the rocket pods also pictures of markings etc varied too m
  13. Hi all, just thought I`d show you some pic`s of my very latest effort: Hasegawas RF-4 Phantom in 1/48 Built from the RF-4B kit, as I couldn`t find a `C` version and done as `Snoopy War`s Hell` from the 11th TRS, 432nd TRW, Udorn, Thailand circa 1969 Apart from after-market decals it`s mostly OOB exceptions being; home made seat belts , rear view mirrors, detail on rear cockpit stbd side and ECM pod from Hasegawa weapons set Had to cut a few lumps and bumps off the kit but most of the `C` bits were on the sprues took a

  15. Hi everyone, Whilst I`m in the process of finishing my USAF Spad, I thought I`d show you my Revell-Monogram Skyraider that I finished this summer. done as an aircraft of VA-145, The Swordsmen aboard USS Intrepid Not quite OOB as I made a few `improvements` such as widening the circumference of the cowl with some plastic sheet and lots of filler opening the cowling shutter to display the engine and replacing the kits dodgy wing tanks with Zuni rocket launchers from a Hasegawa weapons set Kit decals and odd bits of wire here and there. hope you enjoy
