  1. Hi, with help from Mike, the other mods and the review team I have been working on getting a walkaround section here on Britmodeller. This will hopefully contain the sort of detail shots only modellers need. ie the left handed widget on the Blackburn Wurlitzer etc. We are aiming for Aircraft, helicopters, Tanks, Softskins, airliners, Ships, Subs, Weapons, Ejection seats, ground equipment. Basically anything of interest to the modeller. Guys & gals this section will only be as good as the info we can get and post up. If you would like to contribute then please let me know. many than
  2. There's no doubt that 3D printed parts are becoming part of the mainstream of this hobby of ours, and if you look at some of the products from major players like Eduard and others, you can sometimes just make out the miniscule lines that are the individual layers laid down by a 3D printer to create their masters. The crispness of the parts is unmistakable, and if you have a top-of-the-line printer that costs about as much as a small house (at time of writing), they can be pretty much ready for casting once they're taken off the print platform. The home machines that your average member can j
  3. This area is for 3D Members that want to show off and offer their 3D parts for sale to our members on an ad hoc basis, with some caveats that are explained here in our main announcement. Members wishing to use this area will need to either be a Gold Member already, or make a donation to the server fund (new donations should be £20+) before contacting a Moderator to have their membership upgraded. That will allow the posting of new topics here showing off your creations, and permits you to sell them ad hoc in small non-commercial quantities. We'd also welcome samples of your work i
  4. I just saw this on Hyperscale and thought I'd share with you lot. Chris
  5. Hello everyone, just to introduce myself, my names Ed, I'm 63 years old and come from Solihull, West Midlands, UK. I've come back to modelling a couple of years ago not being able to spend as much time as i would have liked through work commitments and family health issues. But now i have gone part time i can spend more time doing what i love most. My main interest is AFV although i do like to do the odd airplane now and then. I've had two models that needed completion one being a Tamiya Tiger 1, the other a Miniart Panzer III ausf C. I've done that now, here are a couple of pictures.
  6. Hello everyone, I followed a link here from another forum and started reading some of the WIP and completed build threads (I think it was an epic Pocher Mercedes-Benz 540K build that got me hooked); plus uncovering some of my part-finished models in my loft that inspired me to create an account. I used to put together model kits when I was in my early teens about 30 years ago, then I had a brief revival in my interest about ten years ago but don't think I finished any of the kits I started. The plan is to use some of this lockdown time to finish some of these projects and maybe so
  7. Today sees the launch of a new brand of Acrylic Lacquer paints from well-known company AK Interactive, which have been worked on in association with a number of respected aircraft and armour colour experts for over a year, including our own @Nick Millman. They have produced a range of colours that will be of great use to anyone making models of WWII aircraft or AFVs of the main protagonists in the European arena, namely Great Britain, America, Russia, and their foes Nazi Germany. Using their own knowledge of paint manufacture and formulation, coupled with the named experts (you'll see those
  8. Just read an e-mail from Wingnut Wings that says there will be a new model announcement at the IPMS nationals on Sunday! No idea what that could be.
  9. Hello I'm CrippledGinge and I'm very new to this hobby. I look forward to posting my projects and asking questions.
  10. Hi all! I'm just getting back into plastic modeling, with a special interest in post WWII jet fighters. I've been doing a lot of web surfing looking for reviews and info about different aircraft, and it seems whenever I did a search, Britmodeller.com would show up in the first 5-10 links. So, after seeing how much knowledge can be found here, I decided I should go ahead and join! I look forward to joining the community.

  12. Begemot Decals have announced their latest decal sheet for the BIG Mig-29, which is a replacement to the often poorly researched or incomplete stencils that accompany a kit decal sheet. Coded 32-006 it contains a full stencil decal set for the Mig-29 for the aircraft and armament. It provides stencils for the standard grey-green camouflage and also for four-tone low altitude camouflage. If you've got the older Revell or the more modern Trumpeter kits, these could be just what you're looking for More info here.

  14. Greetings gents, It seems I have forgotten to introduce myself so here goes. My name is Ryan and I'm originally from California but moved up to Vancouver Canada and was able to get into the hobby as of late 2015. I have always had a fascination with Aircraft particularly Military aircraft from both now and WW2. My father took me to a few airshows when I was younger and I happened to live next to an Air national guard base filled with F-16s taking off every single day for their practice drills. I built my first model at the age of 9 after seeing a 1/48th scale F/A-18A Blue angels sitting on the
  15. I've been looking around for a really good, but reasonably priced range of paint brushes for a while... I accidentally ordered the wrong brush set from one of my suppliers recently and it turns out that they are superb. So, now we have getting on for 50 different paint brushes on order, plus a few brush sets. Hopefully they will be arriving in a week or so and will post more information then. Thanks, Paul
  16. Airfix's 4th(?) foray into blue-nosed Mustangs. I'm sure we're all familiar with the plastic, so here's the new bits: Box art: Painting guide: Cartograf decal sheet:
  17. Evening all, There's plenty of folk who've been ahead of me with this so will spare on the details. Just wanted to share my rendition of the new tool 1/48 Spitfire Mk.Vb, built straight out of the box with the markings for the restored aircraft from the Historic Aircraft Collection at Duxford. As its a restored aircraft I've applied almost no weathering as all the pics I've looked at seem to show the aircraft being kept in a very clean condition. Only thing the eagle-eyed among you will notice is I'm missing the rear view mirror.....blame the carpet monster! Will be fabricating a replacement
  18. The new Avro Shackleton in 1/72 scale from Airfix is back in stock at Wonderland Models! If you missed out the first time round, now is your chance to grab this fantastic and popular model kit.

  20. Evening, Another one now clear of the bench! This is Airfix latest incarnation of the Harrier GR.3, a lovely kit with the only flaw being the fin is slightly too short. There is a resin drop-in replacement now available to correct this, however on my build there's a bit of a tale of woe here! As soon as I bought this I couldnt wait to start it, and decided straight away to cut the fin and extend it with sheet plasticard myself (no resin available at this point). All went well, the fin was corrected using a 1/72 scale drawing, and progress continued apace until I was about to start decalling.
  21. Combo Pigment & Colour Sets Lifecolor Lifecolor are well known for their acrylic paint sets which provide all the colours you'll need for the subject covered. Well time moves on, and with new techniques coming to the fore, they have begun creating combination sets that contaion both the colours you'll need to paint the subject, and the pigments that you will need to complete the job. The first release of three sets is detailed below, and the new pigments have the prefix PG for ease of discrimination: Israeli Army This set is perfectly timed to coincide with all those Merkava kits that a
  22. Hey I'm currently trying to get the replacement parts of a Buccaneer canopy (1/72) and a Wellington prop (1/72). I don't have the parts numbers and Airfix has asked me for them. Can anyone help? If not - the Lancaster prop number (and I'll get 2)? Anyone know how much their parts cost too? Thanks
