  1. I read the Aston Martin DB9 build by @johnlambert recently with sympathy as this model has tested my patience and fortitude in much the same way, particularly since the end of February when my attention turned to the body, I'm a novice in the world of cars (three down and quite a few to go) and after lavishing a lot of time on the modifications to the drive train and interior, I was feeling on a roll but the shiny bits didn't want to play, for a bit more detail my in progress is here - Anyway, I have decided it's finished, (it's not, there are things I know need to be added but my enth
  2. My projects have been on hold for some time. Most of my hobby stuff is wrong side of the border and currently traveling is bit a problem. So I have supported my local hobby shop and purchase some basic things to continue modelling in second home. First project is Dornier Do-X in Otaki boxing. Same molds are use for Revell and Matchbox boxing's. Basically plastic looks good, better what I have seen in Revell box. Some basic information can be found from wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dornier_Do_X Only 3 planes were ever constructed and first plane was use
  3. Here’s my latest completion, Otaki’s aging F6F Hellcat kit in1/48. The subject is one of the first Hellcats that went to 800 Sqn FAA, HMS Emperor, and participated in the Royal Navy strikes against the Tirpitz, while she was anchored in Norway. This Hellcat accounted for 3 FW-190’s. The Otaki kits were great in their day, and still serve as a good basis for detailing and scratchbuilding. – Detailed gunsight, True details cockpit, scratchbuilt rear bulkhead and armour plate based on photos, replaced machinegun barrels, and exhaust with aluminum and brass tubing. – Canopy is Squadron va
  4. This is Otaki's 1/48 FW-190A-8 that I originally started as just a 'paint mule' to try out a paint mix. One thing lead to another and, well, here you are. I added details to the cockpit, belts from aluminum tape and solder, and a scratch built gunsight. Bulged canopy is a spare from Hobbyboss, with scratchbuilt headrest and bulkheads. For the gear, I added a strip to the landing gear doors to widen them, shortened the legs and added brakelines, spare wheels from and Eduard kit, cut out the make believe gear well and added a spare 'dimpled' panel from Eduard's, and scratch built t
  5. Yamato, named after the ancient Japanese Province, was a battleship of the Imperial Japanese Navy. She was lead ship of her class. She and her sister Musashi were the largest, heaviest, and most powerful battleships ever constructed, displacing 72,800 tonnes at full load, and armed with nine 46 cm (18.1 inch) main guns. It carried 7 Nakajima E8N or Nakajima E4N aircraft. Ordered in March 1937, she was laid down on 4th November of that year, and was launched on 8th August 1940. She was commissioned on 16th December 1941. The ship held special significance for the Empire of Japan as a symbol of
  6. Not sure if this is really fit for an RFI but... Bought the kit "slightly started" and "all parts believed to be there". Understatement on both counts. tail wheel, gear doors (4 parts out of 6) missing. Fuselage glued along with (seriously) bent tail. Wheel hubs missing. wings glued...oh the bullet type shape aft of the tail just gone. And broken arrestor hook... Anyway, for 7 quid you takes your chances. And I forgot to chop of 4.2mm from the wing tips so this is in effect an FAA machine in RNZAF wings.....
  7. Hello Everyone, I recently bought couple of kits that are missing their instructions and I was hoping someone might be able to help me. If anyone has a 1/8th Monogram 1978 Corvette or the Otaki/Doyusha 1/12th Pontiac Firebird Trans am, could you scan me a copy of the instructions please? The kits I have are pictured below, but the instructions for any later edition would be fine. Thanks for looking, Stuart
  8. Well, here is another one off the bench. Manufacturer: Otaki Scale: 1/48 Type: Supermarine Spitfire Ml VIII Extras used: Barracuda decals (excellent), Tamiya tape seat belts (honestly) Paints used: Vallejo primer, Tamiya Medium Sea Grey, Dark Green and Dark Earth, white, aluminium, rubber black, oil paints, Flory Dark Dirt, Flory Pigments Aqua Gloss, Xtracolor matt varnish Very limited build thread is part of this thread: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234964266-airfix-148-seafire-fxvii-plus-special-guests/#entry1684720 I totally went to town on the weathering. Flory w
  9. Build 18 This is a very old kit from Otaki, but it looks to be a thousand times better than their F-100D that was released around the same time. (Possibly the worst kit I've EVER worked on!) This will mainly be a OOB build with a bit of rescribing. Price: 83p from eBay
