  1. This one is for @Sam This is the PJ Productions kit. As you can tell from the battered box, it has been in The Stash for some time. The kit does not have any Swiss decals, but Matterhorn Circus sheet 72014 does. However therein lies a problem. Why are there so many interesting schemes for Swiss Mirages? It would be so easy to fall down a rabbit hole. Roll on the Special Hobby IIIE so I can build a Swiss IIIS in the nice air defence scheme.
  2. Brought back from the Shelf O' Doom, I present you with A-Model's Tupolev Tu-134A, done up in custom decals to represent "Zagreb," as flown by Aviogenex in the 70's and 80's. This one fought me hard. The wings and horizontal stabilizers are butt-joined, and you need to take an educated guess at the wing anhedral. Lining up the landing gear is a minor adventure. The paint? Oh, the paint. All those fuselage stripes are painted, touched up with decal painted in the right colors, which was by far the hardest part. Hard to photograph, because it needs a lot of space, it's about the size of a Lockheed Constellation in the same scale, and quite heavy. Yes, there's a flight crew on board--three little Yugoslavs from PJ Productions! Why? Because Aviogenex is probably the only non-Soviet airline to voluntarily purchase the Tu-134 and put it in revenue service. Before they replaced them with 737s, Aviogenex flew the wings off of the Tupolevs for 20 years, with only a couple major (fatal) crashes in-between. They may even have made a healthy profit despite the plane's carrying 30 fewer passengers, and weighing seven tons more--empty--than a DC-9-30. Enjoy! I'm just relieved to have crossed the finish line with it.
  3. My latest completion the 1/72 PJ Productions Dassault MIrage IIID/5 converted to the MIrage 5MD Elkan of the FaCH using the PJ Productions conversion kit and decals, not a bad build just a little filler here and there, except for the canopy which did not fit well and needed alot of persuasion to fit and I still don't think I got it right, anyway here it is Dassault Mirage M5MD Elkan by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr Dassault Mirage M5MD Elkan by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr Dassault Mirage M5MD Elkan by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr Dassault Mirage M5MD Elkan by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr Dassault Mirage M5MD Elkan by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr
  4. Finally finished my Hunter T7 in 1/72. It's the well-known Revell FGA9 mated to a PJ Productions nose and tailpipe. Not an inconsiderable amount of work but enjoyable for the most part. A moment of slight frustration came when I dropped it whilst priming, and the port wing came off as well as the tailpipe. But no harm done and it went back together OK. I thought that the PJ Productions nose was a tad short so I lenghthened it a by about 1.5mm, which added to the workload. The hardest bit was getting the windscreen to fit but it looks OK I think. This was helped by raising the sill line around the cockpit a touch as I felt it looked too low in profile. Other chores included changing the vents in the fuselage to F4/T7 standard, and doing the same with the airbrake. One error that you might see in the photos: the script below the cockpit canopy "cut here for emergency rescue" was a three line stencil on the single seaters but only two lines for the T-bird. So I sliced up the Revell decal and reassembled it. I was quite proud of that, but only after it had dried did I notice that the word "emergency" is upside down. My eyesight must be failing...! I wanted to depict a Brawdy T7 from the early 1980s as I have fond memories of spending a week on the base in the last summer of Hunter operations, 1984. XL595 had the 79 Sqn markings which I remember well from that time, so I chose that as my reference. Some nice photos of the original can be found at: https://forums.airshows.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=19868 Hope you like it: And here she is with her sister, my recently completed FR10: Justin
  5. Just finished this 1998 boxed Sepecat Jaguar T2 as EV of 6 Sqn RAF in 1997. I was well into the build before I found a post on another modelling site that was reviewing various Jaguar T2 model kits. The recommendation for this Matchbox kit was to give it a miss. Oh well I had already started. The injection moulding was quite poor with parts of the main undercarriage well structure missing and the nose cone distorted. The fit of the parts left a lot to be desired with large gaps requiring filler. More filler was required to reconstruct the nose, but I am not convinced that I have the profile right. There was no cockpit to talk about and the seats are very poor. When you scale up the kit seats the seat base would have been 52cm wide. I bought a couple of PJ Productions resin seats and scratched some side panels to fit out the cockpit. I also changed the main undercarriage doors to reflect what I found on reference images. Otherwise the build is OOB. The paint was Vallejo Model Air, Revell and Humbrol acrylics, mainly airbrushed, but with a few brush touch-ups. The decals showed their age with some silvering on a couple of the larger ones, hence the need for the paint touch-up with a brush. The kit was a bit of a struggle but I have something that looks vaguely like a Jaguar T2. The images Thanks for looking. Take care and stay safe. Graeme
  6. Hello again. Well, I am excited today to tell you that the postman just brought something I have wanted for a long time -- a PJ Productions 1/72 resin F-84F Thunderstreak. While like most, I would have preferred a new injection kit, complete with Jato/Rato and Mk7 nuke options, the PJ Productions kit has long been held to be more accurate (particularly in the nose area!) than the Airfix or Italieri offerings, long overdue for a modern re-tooling!!! Anyway, I am glad to have it at last. This time the kit comes with European markings, and the box looks like this: Those on the far side of the pond will be glad to hear that Hannants has them in stock, from whence came my soft-side boxed kit. Here's what's in the box: You'll note that some of the tiny parts had come adrift in the bag, including some PE pieces, so for now, I'm holding onto every bit (including some that may only be smuts) until I can sort things. You will note some rather large sprue parts on the fuse halves, which will need sawing off. Everything else looks quite good, with very little flash and very sharp molding. The kit offers three ejection seats, based on mark, and two vertical stabilizers, again based on mark that you are building. There are good details in all wheel bays. The are also two nicely-formed vacuform canopies, which is good is case one is messed up while building, and also, they eliminate the separate rear quarter windows of other existing kits: Below, more of the kit's detail is shown; particularly the detail in the cockpit side walls: Despite the inclusion of the well-printed Euro markings, I will of course, be contrary and use American markings, the old Microscale sheet for the 81st FBW, 78th FBS "Bushmasters". As a nod to my British hosts and fellow modelers, at least there is the Bentwaters connection! Anyway, as reviews of this it are scarce, I thought it would be nice to throw one in during the building process. Little "PJ" here is now due for it's bath in Simple Green detergent -- stay tuned...

  7. Its been a while since I posted anything on BM, life has really not been too kind lately, I had heart surgery last year and just as I was getting better I fell and broke my left arm. Since then I have moved house so posting anything has been a challenge. Now a kind member gave me some bits n bobs last year to help me make a Sea King from 771 Squadron based in my home county of Cornwall. I cannot thank that person enough but I've lost the PM's somewhere so, you know who you are and hopefully you'll be happy to see them being put to use. I have the Altmark decals and a Revell radome for a Navy Sea king. Just as another thing, I used to see these grey and red cabs all the time as a kid and my brother went on to serve with 771 Sqn as a diver for a number of years. I'm using the new tool Airfix kit of the RAF HAR3 as the base kit along with the Eduard PE set designed for the HC4 kit. As usual anything that is not right will be put right to make a decent Navy cab. This one will go on a small dio and will be displayed in flight, hence the altered rear wheel and the blades being cut off from the hub. A very long way to go yet, loads of scratch building and refining to do. So this is how far I have pushed the build. More photos later, but it looks like I need to find another photo host as PB is asking for a wad of green stuff from me to continue using them Regards Dan
  8. Dear all, I am restarting my Hunter MK.59 I already tried to do once in a GB.... 2nd chance now, thanks to @Col.! most probably Iraqi Airforce, very late 60ies PJ productions tail correction already glued on I have amassed lot's of AM for this and a Mk6 I also have stashed somewhere.... time to build it now before Airfix jumps into the lead some of the resin does not really match each other, (seats, wheels, cockpit tubs......) but I hope to be able to select the most usable items .... that is all, but some more decals from DP Casper I still have to dig out!
  9. So guys it's done, my first 72nd aircraft since my teen years and the first build for over a year. Its the Airfix HAR3 converted into a RN HU5, paints are almost all MRP and I'm well and truly converted to these now. I think I've put a bit to much of a bend the Perspex rod but I quite like the angle it's at Not a bad effort for an Ex Pongo who builds AFV's Enjoy the pictures, I'll try and get more done with a better background tomorrow. Cheers for looking and commenting on the build guys It all started here http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235023572-westland-sea-king-hu5/& Ta all Dan
  10. I have recently completed this a 1/72nd Dassault Mirage IIIS, J2302 this aircraft was used for trials by the Swiss Air Force and at some point was fitted with a Photo Recon nose. The base kit was the new tool PJ Production Mirage V which is a vast improvement on the older kit and I used the PJ Production Mirage IIIS for the conversion. The decals are from Matterhorn for the Mirage IIIS and RS, initial impressions of the decals was good well printed and in register even the very small ones, but when introduced to water a lot of them just broke a part on the backing paper they are also nearly impervious to my preferred Microsol and Microset setting solutions to the point I ended up buying two sheets to finish the decalling. In the end I was just glad to finish it.

  12. Hunter Mk.59 Iraqi Airforce 6 day war 1967 Academy 1/48 one GB ended, so let us start a new one.... . just joking, really looking forward to this one for more than a year now! quite a lot of reseach already done last year in preparation for this GB, you guys helped tremendously already!!! http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234975520-hunter-mk59-mk59a-iraqi-airforce-questions-for-the-hunter-specialists/?hl=hunter here is what I have for now, I hope this will suffice As I understand it, the FGA.9 boxing is the way to go, only diference being the flaps and exhaust area (which will be replaced by PJ prodctions version anyways) some things I observed: wheels: Academy ones are said to be too skinny, but now????: quite a difference here in detail and proportions....... what do you think?? the same here in the cockpit area hard to think these represent basically the same..... both a vast improvement over the kit items nonetheless Werner
  13. My latest completion yet another Mirage, the Dassault Mirage 5DG of the Gabon Air Force. this is the PJ Production boxing of the High Planes two seat Mirage, this seemed to go together a lot better than the single seat versions or maybe I'm just getting the hang of putting them together. Built OOB this version comes with resin seats and etched brass the only thing I changed were the decals, I used Carpena Decals sheet 72.08 for the Gabon Air Force version despite the age of the sheet 15 years or so they went on very well, I used the kit decals for some of the airframe stenciling as I wasn't happy with the Carpena versions. Any way C and C welcome Willy
  14. I present the Pj Productions boxing of the High Planes Mirage, the base kit was the MIrage 5 boxing and using the MIRSIP conversion set you can model the Chilean Air Force Elkan version, I used the FCM decal sheet 72-33 for the markings which went on really well much better than the recent Brazilian Air Force sheet I used. Alongside some of her South American delta wing brethren Anyway hope you enjoy Willy
  15. Agusta Bell Utility Helicopter (I=Italy) from Italeri The AB 204 helicopter, was in service by the Royal Netherlands Navy from 08 june 1962 until 17 march 1978. Operations: search and recue, transport,firefighters,communication. Crew: 1 or 2 pilots (1 officer-1 NCO) + 1 flight technician. They operated from the Naval Air Station "Valkenburg" and "De Kooy" with SQ 7. The turbine engine had a maximum trust of 1050 HP, cruising at 200 km/h, with a radius of 400km. Seven were on service, two crashed. These were replaced with two Agusta Bell's from the Vatican (Air Force) Sikorsky SH-34G/J from Revell The West German Navy received 27 helicopters. 22 G type and 5 (all weather) J type. Operations:Anti Submarine, search and rescue (many F-104 Starfighter pilots), communications, Medical Evacuation from the Islands and transport. These airframes were divided over two squadrons MFG4 and MFG 5. (MFG=Marine Flieger geschwader) In 1973 still 23 airframes were operational. In 1974 they were replaced by the Westland Sea King MK41. Volkswagen Crew bus is from PJ productions with decals from the old box. Landrover Ambulance is from JB Models. Baseplate is from Trumpeter Figurines from Fujimi Belcher Bits rotorblades with the correct lenght for the AB 204B. Xtra colour enamel paints. (Excellent paints) Hope you enjoy the scenery. Regards, Derek The Netherlands.
  16. Hello all, my first post at this great forum! Maybe this has been discussed before, but I didn't really find exactly the answer I wan't from prevoius threads. I want to do an Argentinian Dagger A during the Falklands/Malvinas war in 1/72. I plan on getting the PJ Productions injection molded Mirage III E or Mirage V BA/BR. I know the Dagger/Nesher is a copy of Mirage V, but how similar are Mirage IIIE and Mirage V BA/BR? So the main question, if I want to do an Argentinian Dagger in 1/72, is it best to buy the PJ Productions Mirage IIIE kit or Mirage V BA/BR? Are there any differences in the two kits regarding sprue content, or is it just the decals that differ? I know High Planes has released a Dagger, but that is not an option since it's harder for me to get and it's a more expensive resin kit if I'm correct(?). Cheers! /Jesse
