  1. Fellow modelers my Work Health and Safety Certificate Course is nearly finished, one more assignment to hand in. Time to start a new kit and finish the backlog of kits started. I want to start a new kit because I have missed the smell of glue and the joy of cutting plastic, most of the kits I have started I have forgotten where I am up to. I would like to build Ellsworth's Antarctic Flight Northrop Delta but can only find 2 pictures of this plane. There is also VH-ADR I could do or the more colourful A61-1 of the RAAF. A61-1 will be my choice (all 3 are the same aircra

  3. I have never built a Resin kit and I have bought some from Russia. I have paid for them and have heard no more!!!!!!!! If and when these kits turn up I would like to have built a resin kit so this will be the first. I wonder if Moa has built one of these? Box and instructions. Decals. Kits bits still in their plastic bags. I will take some better shots when the parts are removed from the bags. Thanks for stopping by. Stephe
  4. My next Hobby Boss kit. I like USN aircraft and I especially like all things Northrop so I gonna give this one a go. Box art. Paint schemes. I am going to do the USN scheme Decals. Bits. Thanks for stopping by and having a look. Stephen
  5. Northrop Delta 1:72 Azur FR.ROM The Delta was designed by Jack Northrop alongside the the Gamma in 1932 when the Northrop Corporation was set up with as a joint venture with The Douglas Aircraft Company. The Gamma was to be a mail plane where the Delta was to be a passenger transporter. It was a low wing monoplane with a fixed undercarriage. The wings were common to both aircraft with the Delta having a wider fuselage for the passengers with the pilot being seated upfront behind the engine fighter plane style. Space behind was for 8 passengers. The Delta f

Northrop Gamma 2E "Bomber in China" 1:72 Azur FR.ROM The Delta was designed by Jack Northrop in 1932 when the Northrop Corporation was set up with as a joint venture with The Douglas Aircraft Company. This was developed alongside the Delt, the Gamma was to be a mail plane. It was a low wing monoplane with a fixed undercarriage. The wings were common to both aircraft. The Gamma 2C was a proposed attack version to compete with the Curtiss A-12, with the 2E being a development of this but with a 1600lb bomb load. These were used by the Republic of China Air Force with so
  9. I haven't started a WIP in a while, I haven't finished a kit in a while. This is what I might need to get over the duldrums, mmmmmm. My son's leg has become a problem again. The hospital staff lost his ct scan that he had done on Tuesday, on Friday they told him to come back in 6 months. Two trips to Brisbane in a week for nothing, it is a 3 hour drive each way. A simple kit with a simple paint job, what could go wrong. NOTHING, 34 parts nothing to go wrong. First issue I thought this plane had a NMF, then white finish but I am thinking it was painted a light grey. Anyhow
  10. F-20A Tigershark 1:48 Freedom Model Kits In a programme spanning two decades and costing $1.2 billion, Northrop's F-20 was perhaps one of their most expensive failures, mostly due to policy changes and political pressure. They were looking for a replacement to the lightweight and low-cost F-5 Freedom Fighter that would keep costs low while giving much improved performance to keep pace with the Mig-21s that were being exported to Soviet aligned nations at the time. Eschewing the twin engine format of the original, it had a large GE F404 engine installed in a suitably reshaped rear fuselage,
  11. Hi This is my first gallery in this forum, so maybe few words about me. I'm from Poland and I'm mainly building americans planes. I like putty for plastic and send paper , so my last model is Northrop BT-1, which released VALOM. The build thread can be found here. Bye for now, Jaro

  14. Technically this is not 100% done given I still need to add the photoetched seatbelts, the mirrors and the navigation lights. But I won't be able to get back to it for a couple weeks (deep into finishing up an Eagle Transporter right now for a convention), so I felt it was decent enough to post it as is. I took on this project as a quickie build to get my modeling mojo back. Lately I didn't feel like working on much of anything as the long projects just seemed to get longer with not much reward to show for it. I also recently picked up Trumpeter's NASA T-38C kit and while it is a good kit, it
  15. Recently finished the nice little Williams Brothers 1/72 Kit of the Northrop Gamma converted by Ellsworth for his (ultimately unsuccessful) Antarctic Expedition. It's a fairly simple kit which comes with various versions but, curiously, didn't include the skis which can be seen on the real plane in the Air & Space museum. However, after using few slabs of plasticard to make the leg spats I worked out that the "park bench" style ailerons which come with the kit (but aren't used on this version) were about the right size for the skis, once they'd been bent up a bit. Normally a dedicated foi
  16. This is likely my first or second post here on Britmodeller, and it concerns an F-5 model that is already being built by a number of fine hobbyist's in this campaign. None-the-less, this is the most peaceful, relaxing, and enjoyable hobby I can think of, and I don't feel the duplication should bother anyone. I'm doing mine in the CAF lizard scheme as shown on the boxtop. I have a reference with a pair of decent color photos of that exact aircraft. So mine will be built OOB using the kit decals. Here the prerequsite photos: I'm starting the model this evening, so progress photos shou
  17. Over the last 12 months I've managed to acquire 3 of the old LS 1/144 F-20 kits. They're great little kits that need a few corrections but no major surgery I'll be finishing 82-0062 in it's grey scheme and N3986B in both grey and anthracite schemes.
  18. Hi Guys, This is my latest completed model the excellent F-5F by AFV Club. This really is a fantastic kit and has lots of detail straight from the box and I only added a few extra bits in the cockpits and replaced the kit seats with resin Martin Baker seats as fitted to iranian F-5's and scratch built the extra canopy breakers which are fitted to the front seats. I really enjoyed building this kit with one exception, the decals! They are very good at shattering and that's about all they are good for. I built this as part on the ongoing F-5 Group Build and here is a link to my build thread:-
  19. Hi, In addition to set of Northrops, which I posted recently along with BT-1 I've just cleaned a bit from dust my very old model, which was not posted yet - Northrop P61B Black Widow from Airfix. I did this machine sometime in 1981 or 1982. So a while ago... These days I painted transparent parts with varnish, which came to yellow with years, I am sorry to say. Markings are from 418th FS, USAAF, operating on South Pacific, 1944. The individual markings are home made, in particular there is a hand painted "nose art", which I still like - and perhaps this is the reason to show it...
  20. Hi, I've just finished it. The last (so far) of series of Jack Northrop designs of all metal single engine monoplanes from 1930. - which all are related, one to another. This is BT-1 - the underpowerd dive bomber and then advanced trainer of US Navy, a precursor of BT-2, which then became a very scuccessfull SBD Dauntless (when produced by Douglas, not Northrop). Basicly its is OOB build (Valom "BT-1, 1942" kit) - I made a small difference in decals. I made machine as perhaps looked later in 1942. But anytime I can add red circles in middles of white stars to go back to begining of 1

  22. Well here is my build for the new year for this GB. I was originally going to do the P-47 that you see on the War Thunder loading screen. However I am still waiting for the decals for that. So here I am, with this set. Pictures to follow. What do you think of my bed sheets?! I have decided to build the F-5E and F at the same time, however only the F will be part of the GB. Saves me messing around with the paints at a later date for a second time. I think this is a really attractive scheme for the popular F-5, can't let the MiG's have it all their own way eh?!
  23. Hi, Another very old, archive model - Northrop N3PB made from vacu Contrail kit. Markings are from 330 (Norwegian) Squadron RAF, Reykjavik, Iceland, April-May 1941 I made her more than 20 years ago, in early 1990s, then after some time I changed lettering from red to black when photos of confirmed that code letters should be black...
