  1. As the P1A has about reached the finish line and the Meteor in the STGB awaits paint, I am looking at another build. This going to be the Pavla kit of the Supermarine S6B, the winner of the final Schneider Trophy air race in 1931. It is a short run injection moulded kit with some resin for detail parts, cylinder fairings and beaching gear. Going to be fun, as basically no location tabs etc at all. The plastic parts have a fair amount of flash. This kit is going to be interesting.
  2. After trying to build two Typhoons simultaneously a few years ago, and failing, I decided it would be easier to build four(!) at the same time. One of the four is the left-over from the first attempt, see this thread on Aeroscale: Tale of Two Tiffies . I am using three different kits: the Pavla car-door, the Brengun bubble-top, and two of the Airfix late-war version with 4 blade prop and Tempest tail planes. The schemes I have chosen are: (Top two profiles by Chris Davey from Osprey's Typhoon and Tempest Aces of World War 2 by Chris Thomas; bottom two profiles by Chris Thomas from 2nd Tactical Airforce Vol. 4 by Shores and Thomas) I have spent several days already on getting the parts to fit together, which for the Pavla kit has been a considerable hassle! The wings and fin have had to be thinned considerably, as have the cockpit areas (and still the resin cockpit doesn't fit as intended). Both the Airfix and Brengun kits mainly need the height of the wheel wells reduced to allow the wings to close properly. In the case of the Brengun, the tops surfaces were sanded to translucency, as well as the bottom edges coming up too. The Brengun has the edge over the Airfix wheel wells, and in detail and accuracy in general, but every part needed some clean-up. The Airfix open gun panels inspired me to open one wing on the Brengun kit, originally intending to use the Airfix parts in the wing. However, on closer inspection 1) they weren't a good fit, and 2) are not accurate enough. So I'll have to scratch build something. All the parts needing silver painting were stuck to sticks and airbrushed, then given a brown wash. I'm onto the cockpit painting now (black above the tubular framework, dry brushed with grey, grey-green below). The Airfix instrument panel transfers look OK, and for this scale, and considering it is really hard to see into the cockpit of the Typhoon, they will be fine.
  3. Hello all Here is my latest, the Trumpeter kit of the An-2. It was completed using the Pavla resin cockpit and vac form canopy with the decals and scheme coming from the Lift Here Big Bipes sheet. The kits huge wing struts were replaced with scratch built items and the propeller was detailed with parts from the spares box to make a more accurate representation of the real thing. The rigging attachment points were made from spare etch seat harnesses and the substantial rigging from silver nickel rod. I think replacing the canopy has made the biggest difference as the kit one is completely the wrong shape. Overall I’m pretty happy with it and it was fun to do a biplane for a change. Hope you like it Although difficult to fit, worth doing I think. Thanks for looking Pete
  4. Heather's @Heather Kay latest build has galvanised and motivated me to join in the GB with this. It doesn't have an 804 NAS option but as far as I can see there wasn't too much in markings so should be able to sort something from a combination of the kit markings, left overs from other builds and some generic markings for the serials. I won't go much deeper into 804's contribution to the BoB bur they used Sea Gladiators initially for the defence of the Fleet at Scapa Flow out of RNAS Hatson, with a sojourn on HMS Glorious, before re-equipping with the Martlet towards the end of the Battle. The boxing is a double option of a Gladiator/Sea Gladiator. And one of the Gladiators is a BoB option based at RAF Rosborough to defend Plymouth. The plastic is quite soft and has a bit of flash. Mind you there are only 33 parts, 32 if you take into account the fact there are optional props. And a nice bundle of detail as resin. and a couple of vac form canopies to allow for crack handedness. A nice transfer sheet for 5 options, with a variety of schemes.
  5. Every second post I see on social media at the moment seems to be modelling related, lockdown must be doing wonders for the modelling trade! I'm lucky enough to be able to work at home, so don't have endless days to fill. However, still feeling the other to get something else on the go after finishing my Phantom a few weeks back. I won an Airfix Vampire at a raffle held at once of the Sywell Aviation Museum's talks over the winter. Since it was free, thought I'd splash a bit of cash on it. Got myself the Xtradecal Vampire part 1 sheet and a set of Pavla resin bang seats. First foray into resin extras, I think it'll certainly test my painting skills! Haven't actually started yet, hopefully putting this up will give me that little push... Obligatory box artwork shot (although there can't be many on here that haven't seen one of these!) The Pavla seats. Look pretty good to my (untrained) eye. Presume I have to shave off the big block of resin at the bottom.. And the decals. I had originally thought of going with the Shawbury ATC school markings as the nose at Sywell is in that scheme. However, I'm currently favouring the Leuchars Station Flight machine with the 43 and 151 sqn marks. It'll go nicely with my 43 sqn Phantom. Also means I don't have to get involved in painting that awful dayglo orange again! That's about it for now. Helping my son with an A-4 he got for Christmas in an attempt to inspire him and give him something to do other than stare at screens, so progress may well be slow. Cheers! Al
  6. Here's another build I did over on the 'In the Navy' GB, an Airfix new tool Swordfish. Build thread is here; A straight forward build, had to lengthen the Pavla Radome a bit but apart form that just the rigging was tricky with my fumbling fingers! The extended exhaust, bigger oil cooler and wing aerials are from the Pavla set which also includes the cockpit hood and seating for the |Mk III. This is a machine featured in Xtradecal sheet X72144, all Swordfish aircraft. Apparently this is a Mk II airframe brought up to Mk III standard but retained the standard cockpit and 3-man crew, so I used a fair bit of modellers licence as to where to put the radar gear, eventually deciding to install it under the pilot. The observers scope can be seen under the coming behind the pilot in one of the shots. Paints were the usual Vallejo ModelAir with Vallejo and Galeria Varnishes. Uschi thread for the rigging. Weathering kept to a minimum, just a bit of dry-brushing to bring out some detail. Comments and critism welcome. Davey.
  7. The Sea Hurricane's coming along a treat so I had a scan of the stash to see what I could squeeze in before the end of the GB. I spotted Airfix's Swordfish and on opening the box it seems I bought a Pavla Mk III conversion at the time. I was ordering some decals from Hannants for other projects and came across a set of Xtradecal's for the Swordfish. The scheme that intrigued me was NF119/X, 'Black Mischief' of 819 NAS Knokke-le-Zoute 1944. Apparently a Mk II brought up to Mk III standard with radar system installed but it still has the normal open cockpit and 3-man crew? I can't find any info on this aircraft, can for the Sqn with a couple of period shots, but I was wondering if anyone knows anything about this particular aircraft? Where does the third man go with all that gear in the cockpit?! I want to start this while the decals are on their way but need to know the internal layout, if it's the same as Pavla have in the instructions as there are a few changes to the kit parts. Davey.
  8. I'm going to start with these two challenging ones. The Martinet already has had the resin parts cleaned and some paint on. I've added the white paint to the underside as a starter undercoat for the yellow. Here's the sprue shot and although some paint on nothing clipped off or assembled, so well within the 25% rule. Nice transfer sheet and a fair amount of resin but not too much and thankfully two vac canopies. This is the version I'll be doing, 772 Squadron NAS in South India near the end of the war. Thankfully there is also a nice paint guide for the 'stripy' underside.
  9. Got this S.6B done recently, here's the building link of it. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235054914-pavla-172-supermarine-s6/ Overall a good kit straight from the box. I know there are some who would go crazy and super detail it.
  10. Just started something different, a Supermarine S.6. This is the Pavla kit. My intention is to keep it box stock as much as I can except for adding flying wires. Here I have the fuselage glued up. I found on here another post of the same kit and noted the snags and hints encountered. I can't find the thread but it was very well done. There's no line up spots on the inside of the fuselage. So the seat fits flush to the rear cockpit opening and the instrument panel fits flush to the front opening(with the bulkhead attached) I had to trim the bulkhead and seat bulkheads to fit the contours of the fuselage inside profile. I tried out a truck for seam filling. I took stretched sprue from the same kit and glued it to the top fuselage joints and sanded it all down, works really good and won't shrink. I also drilled out the individual exhaust ports. Another thing from the other thread was to make spars from rod, I used brass, it's not shown here but I put two per side. I epoxied them the first time but didn't put enough hardener in so I took the wings off and redid them with some cement and superglue. There is no dihedral, the wings are flat. I did the same with the tailplane, two brass rods but went through to both sides with two pieces. The struts I thought would be a pain so I drilled in small rods on each end. The rods going into the flats are bent vertically so I can plug the plane onto the floats later. There is a lot of flying wires on this plane and you can see how small it is. 0.25 x .5mm or less flat strip would be ideal, but i don't have any. I have 0.5 x 1mm. I'll see if it works, at least on the floats. There will be some filling where the struts meet everything. The bottom spine didn't quite meet the fuselage halves so it did need some filling with superglue. You can see the dark area just behind the rear strut. I'm going to use the beaching gear as a jig for the floats.
  11. HN862, was used as a trials aircraft by Royal Aircraft Establishment and A&AEE before transferring to 1634 Flight. It crashed in July 1943. I found this Pavla kit a trial - and I have another in the stash
  12. Hello all, As indicated in the GB chat a number of months ago, I will join and doing a Kyushu Q1W1 Tokai (allied codename, Lorna) in 1/72 by Pavla. The Lorna was the first purpose-built anti-submarine aircraft: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyushu_Q1W Sprue shots: This project will need some masking (although the product is for Fine Molds kit, not Pavla): Some extras I may use. I'm still undecided how to model the Lorna... This should be a great GB, and I look forward to checking in on all builds! Regards, David
  13. I am looking to get a cockpit detail set for my Revell 1/48 Mi-24 Hind, and was wondering which one was better, the Cobra Company set or the Pavla set? They're about the same price, once you figure in shipping to Florida. Larry
  14. I won't make a big introduction this time, as this deadline will kill me. But I was thinking should I jump in or not? And here I am... I made one back in 2000 or something, as bort "43". Maybe I could dig a picture of it. Still not sure about bort number and weapons, but one thing is for sure: I HATE THIS NEW GREY CAMO !!! Basic Italeri mold + few scratches planned + Eduard PE + Pavla cockpit + AKAN paints I'm missing joysticks from Pavla - never got them Pictures are talking for themselves...
  15. Rare case in my collection - model almost just out of the box (only a few details added or modified). This is Miles M38 Messenger from Pavla - a personal airplane of Marshal Montgomery ("Monty") Regards Jerzy-Wojtek
  16. Well, having finally sorted myself out & found all the bits I thought I had, but couldn't find, here's my entry for my first GB: It's the well known Airfix kit, with 3D Kits Mk.II LR conversion, to which I hope to add the Quickboost seat & Pavla improved parts. I may leave off the Pavla vacform canopies as I've only once tried to use one of these & it didn't end well!
  17. After posing a question in the Cold War forum regarding the B-47, I thought why not start a WIP-thread on this build. That might put enough pressure on me to hopefully eventually complete this build. It all started with a visit to my LHS where I spotted the Pavla resin cockpit set for the Hasegawa B-47. Turned out a customer had ordered it, but in the end never bought it. I had long been considering getting this set for the B-47 kit buried somewhere deep down in my stash since... well, a long long time ago. So I thought this is my chance, and bought it. So after a bit digging deep in my stash I eventually found the kit. If you look carefully you can actually read the price tag. Yes, it says £6.95! That's how old it is. Bought at W.J. Walker's in Hackney, a shop now long gone, on one of my visits to the UK. This kit has been reissued a couple of times over the decades. But I think this is one of the very early ones.It was top of the line when first issued, But by today's standards it is a very simple kit. It is reasonably accurate, but has raised panel lines and rivets (B-47s were flush riveted!), nice wheels but simplified gear legs, a very thick canopy, very little cockpit detail, the RWR antenna and bomb aimers periscope on the tip of the nose incorrectly positioned on the centre line instead of offset to port, missing landing lights on the inner engine pods, substandard decals which have yellowed over the years. But nevertheless, with a bit of work it can be made into a very good model. So the Pavla set is quite extensive and will do wonders for the cockpit. It will require some very fine detail painting, especially the two instrument panels. Unfortunately the vacformed canopy has some nasty scratches on one side. Luckily I have a Falcon vacformed canopy which I will use instead. The main resin "lump" has to have some of the resin trimmed off in order to fit inside the fuselage. This is clearly shown in the instructions. The areas that have to be removed are also marked on the resin. After that I did a dry fit which looked promising. But when I dry fitted it in the port half of the fuselage, the crew access passage didn't line up properly with the crew door. The whole resin piece needs to be moved 4-5 mm to the rear. But to do this I had to remove just over 3 mm from the rear end of the cockpit insert in order to clear the front end of the forward wheel well. For the time being the cockpit has been put aside and will be dealt with later. In order to be able to start this project, I had to make sure that I had proper decals for it. A search on the net showed that Warbird Decals had issued four sheets for the B-47. One sheet with stencils and wing walk/ways, and three sheets featuring individual markings. Unfortunately most of these were sold out almost everywhere. But Warbirds themselves had the stencil sheet in stock, and Sprue Brothers had one of the other sheets in stock. So both of these sheets were ordered last week, and three days ago the sheet from Sprue Brothers arrived in the mail. (Sorry for the slight out of focus. Printing is actually very sharp.) Just waiting for the other decal sheet to arrive. Since the kit has raised panel lines, I have started to rescribe the kit. She scribing is actually not that difficult and doesn't take that much time. What actually does take time is the sanding afterwards, especially since some areas on the wings are not even and the thickness of the trailing edges are not constant. So I have spent several hours scribing, sanding and polishing. So far one wing, one stabiliser and one wing tank is more or less done. Meantime, I'll carry on scribing and sanding, scribing and sanding...
  18. I've got a bunch of Pavla kits in my stash. Every time I feel like a long, slow, arduous and excruciatingly painful building process I pull one out and take a good long time to build it. *LOL* This one took me, off and on, about 2 years - even though I still have to drop the aerial on the top of the fuselage I am calling it "DONE" - what a royal pain these kits are (at least for me) - BUT the good part is you learn a lot about modeling and what skills you need to work on and practice and you also learn a lot about patience :grin: Lots of issues with this one - the landing/wing light clear cover should be better fitted (but I can't be bothered - it's that type of kit), I should have sanded down the trailing edges a LOT. I should have been far more careful in my sanding/filling (that is what this is supposed to be about, practicing that stuff) and my thinning/PSI needs work in order for the paint to sit nicely and not get orange peel. That said though, I'm happy to be completed with this one mainly because, aww heck, I love the paint scheme. I didn't think I would be able to mask it effectively but it seemed to be done decently and the Xtracrylix paints matched up nicely to the Xtradecal sheet (I would hope so!!). It's given me confidence in masking more difficult schemes in the future. I wonder just how much better the AZ Model version of these old Pavla moulds will be. . . . Cheers, Dave
  19. NEW PROJECT!! I have been collecting detail sets for Revell's Mi-24 Hind for quite some time now, but could not decide on a scheme, let alone starting this beast! It is know for being the most accurate Hind in 1/48 - the only one available- Minihobby/Trumpeter did one many years ago, but it is said to be more or less the same kit as this one. The kit should represent an early Hind D reasonably well out of the box, with problem areas being the tail which is said to be too short. additionally Mil, the original designer of this Russian helicopter decided to counter the rotor rotatory moment in part in a very novell/ peculiar way in tilting the whole fuselage aft of the cockpit section 2.5° to the right. On the ground a Mi-24 always seems to be leaning to one side!! of course the kit does not represent this asymmetry at all, but is perfectly straight ! lets see how to correct this! so, here you can see all the assortment of AM kits and the kit itself some time ago in the sun: I acquired the Pavla cockpit set at an airshow in Slovakia about 3 years ago, falling in love with the helicopter display there, still without the kit itself...! detail is quite nice and a real improvement on the kit. CMK detail/ upgrade set to make a more modern Mi-24 V that is more commonly used nowadays in Europe. this comprehensive set is made especially for the Minihobby / Trumpeter kit, so maybe some adjustment will be necessary. For me it was better value than the other, seperately sold sets for Revelll/ Monogram's kit. It consists if new wing pylons with new camera fairing, nice, detailed pylons, a pair of external fuel tanks, bulged wheels, flare dispensers and other detail like laser/ RF targeting devices especially for this version. finally I got this rotor head and rotor correction from ruporator / ebay. He designs, makes and sells mainly 1/32 and 1/35 full resin kits (Su-7, Su-17, Su-22, Mi-8 weapons,...) and this nice one here: contains correctly shaped rotor blades, and a new rotor head. reinforced with metal inserts! uncleaned blade detail: all my treasures together before starting: it is NOT a small kit at all!
  20. Harrier Harvest, I was going to go with Harrier Hernia but that doesn't sound quite so exciting! Here is another booby type build followed on from here; http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234964850-wip-booby-harrier-gr3-airfix-172/?view=findpost&p=1694841 This time BOOBS is an abbreviation of Built Out Of Boxed Sets. Airfix harrier Gr1 x3 Airfix Harrier Gr3 Italeri Harrier Gr3 Hasegawa Av8-a Eduard zoom etch for Gr1 x2 and for Gr3 x1, Master models pitots for Gr1x3 and for Gr3x1, Pavla seats for Av8a x2, Pavla Aden gun pods for harriers x2, attack squadron Mk 77 napalm bombs for US aircraft x6 Caracel decals early Av8a sheet all in 1/72 scale. I'm just waiting on a few books (thank you Mr H.Lime for the clue) then I'm going to begin "Operation Vertical" One thing I've learned about model kits, if you find one you like get many before eBay put the price up! Secretly I'm hoping revell release the Hunter Mk6 again. What I'm after is help to make (within the limits of my skill and scale permitting) accurate harriers of Gr1/3 and Av8a types, I'm starting with the American versions as I don't yet have seats for the RAF examples. Any help appreciated for any type under construction (everything in the picture is under construction!) Some builds will be quicker with less effort! Please be patient. . . .
  21. Good morning! Today the sun was shining, so a good opportunity to take a few pictures of my Sea Harrier. It's the well-known kit from Italeri/esci, even built with the kit decals. Some parts are from Pavla, like the cockpit, intake with open doors and the exhausts. Colours were white and EDSG from gunze, the Sea Eagles are from a Hasegawa kit. Thanks for attention! Alex
  22. Spitfire MkI/II 1:32 Pavla Although having a number of problems from the box, the Revell 1:32 MkI/II Spitfire is still a very nice kit. Since there is always room from improvement a number of manufacturers have released correction sets and detail sets. With this in mind Pavla has released three new sets to improve the cockpit area. All three sets are contained in a blister pack with card backing and header. The first pack contains a replacement seat, which looks a lot closer to the real metal seat, but is still not 100% correct, although the missing detail on the seat back will probably be covered by the seatbelts. The second pack contains a replacement access door. This is very nicely moulded with some very fine surface detail on the outer skin and nice rib detail on the interior. The door does not come with a moulded on crowbar, nor is any provided, which, I believe is correct for this era. The final set contains the cockpit sidewalls, which are drop in replacements. As per the other sets the mouldings are very well moulded, with lots of detail such as the cabling between electrical boxes, the longerons, stringers and frames, along with numerous smaller details. Some careful painting and the use of washes will pay dividends in making these details pop. In addition to the sidewalls the set comes with separate throttle quadrant, oxygen bottles and trim wheels, another smaller oxygen style bottle and the undercarriage control box and lever. Conclusion Pavla have produced some very nice detail in these three sets. I thinking the sidewalls are the best of the bunch, although the door is a nice easy addition. I’m not sure when the metal seat was used, but if the aircraft you’re modelling uses this style then go for it. Highly recommended Review sample courtesy of
  23. B-57B Night Bomber Cockpit Set for Italeri Kit 1:72 Pavla The B-57B was the licensed built Canberra produced in the US by Martin. The B-57B would differ from the Canberra by having a tandem cockpit and wing mounted guns. The kit avaiable from Italeri is a good one, but these cockpit upgrades from Pavla are always nice. The new set from Pavla contains a complete cockpit tub, two ejection seats, forward and rear cockpit instrument panels, canopy jack and pilots control column. I am reliably informed that this set captures the early B-57B cockpit much better than the kit which is more like that of a B-57E. Conclusion This set from Pavla will enhance your B-57B model. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  24. Hi Another bird from my shelf - Siebel fh 104 Hallore. This is a personell a/c of of German WWII ace, Adolf Galland I made this markings from my drawer, and now, when I wanted to post it I found two new data. First, that I omitted at least one emblem. You might see it here: http://falkeeins.blogspot.com/2011/11/adolf-gallands-siebel-sh-104.html Second one, that Pavla made this markings as a limited edition, but it was not available in Poland, I think... In Pavla markings there are two more emblems. Anyway - when I add this emblems I will post new photo. Comments welcomed Regards Jerzy-Wojtek
  25. B-57G Night Hawk Cockpit Set for Italeri Kit 1:72 Pavla The B-57G Night Hawks were B-57Bs modified as night intruders with FLIR, LLTV, and laser designator in the nose, capable of using laser-guided bombs; 16 converted for The Vietnam war. Italeri have brought us a decent model of the B-57G but it is lacking in the cockpit area. The kit supplied seats are good only for the first test version and the kit cockpit does not re-produce the Night Hawk. To remedy this Pavla have now brought us a complete new cockpit set. This includes the main tub, correct ejection seats, correct front & rear instrument panels,control yoke; and canopy ram. The parts are well cast though one of the rear ejection rails was missing from the review sample. It had not broken off in the box as its not in there at all. Conclusion This set from Pavla will enhance your B-57G model. Highly recommended. Review samples courtesy of
