  1. Couldn't decide which scheme to go for, so had no option but to build two. This is an AT-6 from 1980 which puts it right at the start of the Contra rebellion against the Sandinista government in Nicaragua. Based again on the Revell issue of the Heller kit, with decals by Blue Rider. I wrote this intro second, so less daft comments. Sorry This one has two tone olive wrap around camo, with the upper wing schemes being unknown so it looks like I have free reign to muck it up as I see fit. This is what I'm aiming for though: Going to be fun carv
  2. "Three, Two, One. Now!" -1:144 British Airways Concorde Hi everyone! As a bit of a distraction over Easter, in amongst studying, I thought I would have a go at a Revell 1:144 Concorde. My first encounter with the Revell tooling was a number of years ago, and whilst it built up quite nicely, there were plenty of areas where I felt I could do better. So this time around I brought along some extra "goodies" to help, namely the combined PE/resin set from Metallic Details, and the BraZ resin windscreen. The PE fret was relatively straightfo
  3. Having recently finished the Mig-29, I was looking for something different and a little bigger. After a lot of deliberation I settled on the Trumpeter 1:35 Mi-17 and promptly ordered one before Easter...By Friday all I'd heard was that the order would be shipped when it was complete, which I took to mean they didn't actually have it in stock! The weekend was looking dire weather wise so I was going to go stir crazy with nothing to work on A lot of model shops shut at 1300 on Saturdays in Germany, but there's a shop in our nearest city(Trier) so having persuaded the missus we needed
  4. Mirage IIIE No.501 / 3-IB EC1/3 'Navarre' Nancy-Ochey, France, June 1985 This was built from the old Revell 1/72 kit from the 1970s. Not the best Mirage kit out there nowadays by a long way but it's been in the stash for so many years and it was time to build it. The inspiration was that Modeldecal sheet with those attractive EC1/3 anniversary markings. The French are usually very good at anniversary schemes, and though this one is quite simple it's also very French and looks good. The kit was basically OK. It gave the impression that it had been scaled down from t
  5. Sd.Kfz.9 FAMO Revell 1:72 The FAMO was a large, 18 ton half track powered by a 270hp, 11 litre Maybach petrol engine (fuel was obviously much cheaper in those days!). The Famo could tow loads of up to 28 tonnes, making it suitable for moving medium tanks such as the Panzer IV, and artillery pieces such as the 17cm Kanone 18, the 21cm Mörser 18 and the huge 24cm Kanone 3. The Kit The Revell Famo was first released in 2004 and has been periodically released since that date which shows it must be a good seller. The 2015 boxing comes with new decals.The kit is made up of 6 sprues of beige
  6. "Three, Two, One. Now!" 1:144 Revell Concorde (British Airways) Hi everyone! After a pretty hectic start to 2021, I've now got a little bit of time to spend on modelling. My attention has been drawn to the majestic swan of the skies, Concorde, for the past few months. Unfortunately the 1:72 kits have been just outside of what I'd be prepared to pay for the kit (and I gather that the kit requires a lot of work too)- so why not get a smaller Concorde and use the money saved to get some extra PE/resin? I had toyed with the idea of modelli
  7. I managed to finish this RAF1:48 Eurofighter Typhoon today depicting a special scheme worn in 2014 'TP V'. The Revell base kit is pretty good, I added Eduard photo etch set along with resin intakes. Thanks for looking
  8. This was a shocker... I was aware this Revell kit had its issues, but it fought me all the way... despite that quite happy with the final look (from a distance).. despite my ineptitude to get the fuel tank fins on the right way round (too late now to do anything about that).. She's been enhanced with a resin cockpit and a few other bits and bobs off the pylons.
  9. I started this kit about two years ago and have seen various fellow modellers experiencing copious grief with the tracks. Even YouTube experts seem to finish up with gaps. I've been putting off trying to finish the model for months now because of the tracks issue. This is my first attempt at link & length tracks (A Tiger II is probably not the best place to start) I don't really want gaps if I can avoid them............. I've completed the wheels and cemented the idlers in place leaving the sprockets free as per some advice I found on t'internet. (This was be
  10. Time for the next project, and one with a bit of an overblown name. With that sort of name you'd expect some hugely overpowered convertible, maybe some sort of uprated Corvette. What you actually get with the Chevy SSR is a retro-styled convertible pick-up. This will be my first commercial vehicle (in the very loosest sense of the word) but don't expect me to do a weathered example - as with the rest of my display it will look qutie clean unless I make a real pig's ear of it. So, on with progress to date. I should say that so far it's just been spraying which I did over summer and
  11. Hi friends My fingers are itchy for another F-86 Sabre. I want build a Revell/ Hasegawa Canadair CL-13B Mk.6 Sabre in camouflage scheme of the 2./Jagdgeschwader 71 ,,Richthofen,, stationed in Ahlhorn near to Oldenburg 1962. But first i want ask the Sabre experts here. Can i build this model out of the box, except the aftermarket stuff as what i show here on the pictures? Or do i have to improve something more? Is the Aftermarket material shown right for a german version? Thanks
  12. The build was filled with enthusiasm from the start. I have a big heart for the Tornado and so many great schemes to choose. Things started to feel heavy though before the paint was applied. Anyone who has built this kit knows the pitfalls. Because of the shape of the aircraft, fuselage in particular, knows the moulding limitations in manufacturing the kit. Pressing on, little things seemed to go wrong for me but I wanted to continue and not leave it for that shelf of you know where. Vallejo Air paint and Eurodecals with India Ink accenting of the panel lines. A slight deviat
  13. Well making a start on this just for something different to do and because there is a very nice gentleman on this site @stevej60 who very kindly gave me some kits he was wanting to clear out from his stash He would not take anything for them even though I tried so I will be making a donation to the Northumberland and Borders Childhood Poverty charity to help out the underprivileged children in his name. Wanted a simple OOB build to do while waiting for some bits to arrive for another project and had been liking what I had saw that @ChrisSC has been building lately on here First
  14. I'm starting this build thread as a tribute to my Uncle, Sgt P C Brown.(later promoted to W/O 2 ) I only recently found out some detailed information about his wartime RAF service. The key to unlock the records was his middle name. I found his record card in the National Archives after my late father told me his middle name was "CORIN". This build thread i've decided to start up as a WIP. It's the Revell 1:32 Hawker Typhoon V kit. The reason I chose this was that my uncle flew this type in March/April 1945 in Northern Germany. I'm intending to use the Hataka Paint
  15. I've got myself two of this kit, because I'm interested in building Construction Number 650 at two very different moments in its life. This aircraft was part of the Junkers Spitsbergen Expedition of 1923, registered as D-260. It spent the next decade knocking around Germany, Russia, Estonia and north Norway under various registrations, before ending up as the property of Nord-Norges Aero in 1932, registered as LN-ABH. Passengers were flown on sightseeing trips by Norway's famous aviatrix, Gidsken Jakobsen, until June 1934, when it "lost its engine" near Balest
  16. This is the old Revell kit build from the box, just with the addition of spares folder decals as I bough her second hand. A simple kit with minimal interior detail, but I did like the surface detail and it looks quite nice built up. I went hard with the weathering as these aircraft tended to get pretty filthy. Not a modern "uberkit" but still a nice build.
  17. After 6 months since I've started this model, finally today I've finished it! This was actually the first model I've put all my effort and decided to take it in a serious way until the end. During the whole process which you can find on this topic: I've learned so much. also from feedback from other members here. Some errors were made but I've also learned with them and I will try not to repeat them on the next models! I will leave you with the pictures of the finished product. Hope you all like it!
  18. This is my recent build of another Airbus. I had actually planned to finish it in the BA anniversary year but for some reason I had only a slow progress on this model as I chose other models to finish first. Well,now I finally managed to get this little Airbus over the finishing line. Not much to say about the kit and the build,as its the well known Revell A319 wirh British Airways and Germanwings markings. Troublefree build all around. The decals come from 26decals and worked great. The details come from the extensive Revell decal sheet. Paints used a
  19. This is my Eurofighter Typhoon FGR4 Revell 1/48 - aircraft from 29th squadron RAF in paintwork in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. The scheme of camuflage is the same as the Hawker Hurricane from 249 squadron. In general, I built it out of the box. I made the exhaust of the APU, added wires and tube lines in gear bays and on landing gears. And I used custom decals and "Removes" from Eduard
  20. This will be my first car as all my previous efforts have been AFVs, tanks or military aircraft where I can disguise my poor modelling skills as “battle damage.” This is a bit of a special project for me and I have been putting it off for some time to practice my skills on other more basic models. My aim is to make a scale model of the 1989 Trabant Kombi that I own. The Trabant has had a terrible press over the years for being basic, badly designed and poorly built. I am biased, but I think the Trabant is a very well designed little car that suited its market when it came out in 1
  21. Hi again, Soon after the Harrier comes this project that's been sitting gathering dust in the loft for many years now: Looks pretty familiar, the old Revell GR.1 kit which has now been not so much surpassed as smashed into the Stone Age by the new Italeri masterpiece. This will be a conversion to the F3 using Heritage Aviation's resin conversion set as a basis. Thought I'd better get on and do it before Italeri release an F3! (I hope!!) The set includes a limited decals set with those all-important walkway decals! Also using the white
  22. During a discussion on here the other week about this kit, I promised to post up some pics of mine. Turned out that I had taken some pics of this and a couple of other older builds back in the summer which I haven't posted yet, so fortunately have some decent images of it since I am unable to take any at the moment due to the weather. This is originally an Italeri kit, but this one is a Revell AG rebox from about 15 years ago. I bought it at the time and probably started it about five years later. However I messed up the bonnet as when gluing it to the hinges, the polystyrene ce
  23. This is a great little kit which fits together really well and requires little filler. The decals are excellent with two nice RAF markings to choose plus a RNethAF example. I chose the CFS as I liked the contrasting yellow markings plus they were based at West Raynham which is pretty close to my mum’s! I built this oob except for the masking tape seat belts and a slight change of serial number. I built XG209 instead of 204 as the latter was subsequently lost. This is my first attempt with gloss camo spray instead of satin. The yellow took quite a bit of masking and touchin
  24. Hello, Here's my Revell 1/72 Tornado IDS, done as one one from the Luftwaffe Training Unit at Holloman AFB in New Mexico. Kit decals were used, with some changes to the serial as I couldn't find any pics of the kit option. I used Hataka airbrush optimised acrylics on this one. I had planned to use their lacquers instead, but the shop I got the paint from accidentaly sent me the acryclis. I had no idea what to use as a thinner, but it turned out plain water worked reasonably well. Thanks for looking.
  25. A few pics of my Revell F.3, finished in 11 Sqn livery and surrounded by assorted ground handling bits from etched/resin kits (Flightpath for the GPU and VideoAviation for the Schopf tug). Models very much a long way from perfect, in part as I've nowhere to run an airbrush! Backdrop is the Noy's Miniatures hangar, which just blew me away when I first saw it here a few months ago.
