  3. Here are a pair of Platz 1:144 Kawanishi N1K2-J Shiden-Kai (Late) "George" which I built back in 2007. Both kits were built OOB and fully painted and varnished with brush. Both are from the 343 Kokutai (Wing), the only one to use the type, but from different Hikotai (squadrons). The first one represents C-343-45, 343 Kokutai, 701 Hikotai, Imperial Japanese Naval Air Force, Matsuyama airfield, Japan, in April 1945. The second one represents B-343-30,
  4. Here my entry for this weekends Blitzbuild, no complicated camouflage scheme or Bi-Plane rigging, just a simple two colour build with a single aftermarket item. Oh! and definitely no silly challenges from the wings like 'Why not build both' I'm looking at you @Enzo Matrix and @Hockeyboy76, that way I hope to finally finish something for a Blitzbuild. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr
  5. Here are a pair of Platz 1:144 Kawanishi N1K2-J Shiden-Kai (Early) "George" which I built back in 2007. Both kits were built OOB and fully painted and varnished with brush. Like the P-51D I posted last week, these Platz kits are a real delight with great finesse for this scale and are highly recommended. It's just a shame the type is limited in terms of schemes since all machines flew with the 343 Kokutai (Wing) and the only differences being the fuselage bands for each squadron of the wing. The first one represents "91", a prototype at the Kawanishi factory, Japan, in
  6. Here is my Platz 1:144 North American P-51D-15-NA Mustang which I built back in 2007. It represents 44-14888/B6-Y "Glamorous Glenn III", flown by Captain Charles 'Chuck' Yeager, of 363rd FS, 357th FG, 8th Air Force, USAAF, in summer 1944. The kit was built OOB and fully painted and varnished with brush. These Platz kits are a real delight with great finesse for this scale. Eduard has recently released these same moulds under their label. Highly recommended. Thanks for looking Miguel
  7. On display in the Platz stand at the recent Shizuoka's UAMC 2018 was what looks like a 1/72nd (?) Nihon Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation NAMC YS-11 test model.

  8. Here is the He 219 A-0 G9+FK. Continuing my Night Fighter series. I wanted to replicated as much as possible the original plane, I'm am pretty satisfied I achieved this. The Platz (Dragon) in 1/72 is overall a very good kit to build, there were some fitment issues with the wings to the fuselage and the undercarriage, I'll know what do next time! For those interested in this kit the Platz kit comes with weights and p.e which is extra over the Dragon offering so I suggest go with this one at least for the weights. I think it still needs to be heavier in the nose so I will add more we
  9. Hello everyone Here is my Platz 1:144 Focke-Wulf Fw 190D-12/R14 (early) I built in 2013. Inspired by one of the unbuilt variants of the Fw 190D family illustrated in the Valiant Wings book, I made this rather simple conversion from a D-9 to a torpedo-carrying D-12. The forward cowl had the gun bulges and troughs removed and smoothened out, the wing bulges removed, the supercharger intake enlarged, a cannon hole made in the propeller tip and the blades sanded to a more rounded shape. The torpedo came from a Minicraft He 111 and I added the pylon clamps to hold it and the

  11. Hello All, My last finished product, a Platz 1/144 RF-4E in German guise. The platz kit is very nice and went together without too much grief OOB. Thanks for looking Ian
  12. I posted my earlier attempt at this kit earlier, but as there are two in the box it would be rude not to build both. So this one is a machine of the Squadron commanders bird from the 87th FIS. Both together Thanks for looking.

  18. This is the latest in my project of building the US military's "large" drones; the Platz RQ-4N. Subsequent to the release of this kit the UAV was renamed MQ-4C Triton. This kit is very similar to their RQ-4B Global Hawk kit. The main difference are the fuselage bottom piece, that includes the Navies ground (water?) search radar and a new IR turret, and the decals. Both kits have issues with warping, the RQ-4B in the fuselage halves and this one in the wing upper and lower parts. Other then the warping the fit was generally good except for the area around the lower engine compartment. The decal
  19. Hi all! Well the next one rolls out of the paint shop in the form of a Lockheed AT-33A Shooting Star, depicted as she was when operated later in her life with the Fuerza Aerea Uruguaya (the Uruguayan Air Force). Over time the FAU operated 11 of these machines from Durazno Air Base in the centre of the country, with 2 more acquired for spares. “207”, originally a T-33A-20-LO, she was 53-4919 in USAF service and was operated in Uruguay from 23/07/1969 to 05/06/1997. She went on to be one of the last that was operated by the air arm. The T-33s in Uruguayan service had many schemes. O

  21. I finished these recently for the Mustang STGB III. Red Dog XII was built OOB whilst Petie 2nd received some interior work in the cockpit which included sidewall details and instrument panel using the Airfix 1/72 kit as a guide. I also split the one piece canopy to give the fixed and sliding sections on this aircraft and added some tape belts to both models. I painted Red Dog XII using Vallejo's Metal Color Acrylic Aluminium after a Gloss Black primer coat from the same manufacturer whilst Petie 2nd had Mr Metal Aluminium applied and this was buffed to a shine with kitchen paper towel.
  22. Hello All, After 6 months, a change of airbrush, a lot of swearing and lots of "what the heck am I doing"? here is my interpretation of Hans Dortenmann's mount in 1/144 scale. This is not the first one of these I have done and they are exceptional kit to build. oooops forgot to remove the canopy mask..... Happy modelling all, Happy to take questions. Ian

  24. Lockheed T-33 1:72 TanModel The T-33 is a jet trainer developed from the P-80 Shooting Star by Lockheed during the late-1940s. Initially intended as a trainer variant of the P-80 fighter aircraft, the T-33 was created by lengthening the fuselage of the P-80 by approximately three feet and adding a second cockpit. Over 7,000 T-33s were built in total, far outstripping production number of the original fighter aircraft. In total, over 30 nations have used the T-33, many of which were supplied via the US Foreign Military Assistance programme. As well as being one o
